WILL ANY SENATOR STAND BY THEIR OATH?
“…I will do impartial justice
according to the Constitution…”
impeachment moves to trial in the Senate, every Senator has to take this oath:
I solemnly swear (or affirm, as the
case may be,) that in all things appertaining to the trial of the impeachment
of Donald John Trump, now pending, I will do impartial justice according to the
Constitution and laws: so help me God.
It seems like every member of the Senate has already stated
their intention to either protect or convict the President before the
impeachment trial has even begun.
It is clear those Senators have no respect for the
Constitution or their vow to support it.
Odds are there will be additional testimony from people who have
firsthand knowledge about the actions of the President and there will be new
information presented at the trial.
No matter what side you maybe on, it is important to
remember the behavior of the Senate in this trial will set the precedent for
future administrations. Party
affiliation and political majority should not excuse Senators from honoring
their responsibility to the Constitution.
Senators should be voting on impeachment based on evidence, not blind
loyalty to a political party.
Pure political party votes versus impartial justice
eliminates the checks and balances built into the Constitution by the founding
fathers. There were inquiries into
impeachment for both Obama and G.W. Bush but they did not find enough evidence
to move forward with impeachment.
Future presidents could be subject to impeachment and
removal from office based not on evidence of wrong doing but on whether or not
their political party is in power.
Your Senators should stand by their oaths and vote on the impeachment trial of President Trump based on evidence not political party.
