The strongest proof yet has emerged to prove that President Trump's second impeachment trial is not only a SHAM, it's also shaping up to be blatantly and defiantly unconstitutional. Several news outlets are reporting that Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts will NOT preside over the Senate trial, even though Article 1, Section 3, Clause 6 of the United States Constitution clearly states: "When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside."
But Newsweek reports that, instead of Roberts, "Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), the Senate President pro tempore, will preside. ... Newsweek found no evidence that Roberts refused or was even asked to preside over the trial."
The far-left-leaning, former-print magazine also makes the outlandish claim that: "The Constitution requires the involvement of the chief justice only when the president is on trial. Since Trump no longer is president, there is no requirement for the chief justice to be involved."
But by that same reasoning, if Donald Trump is now a private citizen, the Senate has no jurisdiction in an impeachment trial! This is a ridiculous double standard by radical Democrats and the Unhinged Left! Also, having the nation's longest-serving Democrat Senator preside over the trial of a Republican former president is not only unconstitutional, it's absurdly unfair.
But what's worse is Senate Minority "Leader" Mitch McConnell's (R-KY) unwillingness to fight the Democrats' SHAM impeachment! Instead of refusing to allow Republican Senators to take part in this ongoing charade, McConnell is allowing the witch hunt to proceed as part of his TIRED and FAILED go-along-to-get-along strategy!
Millions of pro-Trump Americans agree that there shouldn't even be an impeachment trial. But McConnell is failing to show ANY leadership in the fight against it! Click here to fax the Senate Minority "Leader" now.
