I’m a political outsider, and that’s why I’ve been clear that I believe this impeachment is purely a political sham to damage a president they’ve wanted gone since hour one.
But since it became obvious that Democrats would finally move forward with impeachment after orchestrating it for three years, I started to get a question from the media: “How can you speak out about impeachment if you’re going to be a juror in the trial?”
Let’s get this straight now: a Senate impeachment trial is not a court of law. It’s a court of politics.
Courts of law require evidence to go to trial – not opinions from bureaucrats. In a court of law, a defendant has a right to a jury of his peers – in a court of politics, he gets 100 politicians.
If the Senate impeachment trial were a real court, all 100 senators would be removed as jurors for bias for or against the president.
