Senate Impeachment Trial: Constitutional Oath



“…I will do impartial justice according to the Constitution…”

As 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.
