Here’s a little test of the American system of justice, which requires that we are tried ‘by a jury of our peers.’
If you’re a black male suspect and you’re on trial for something you didn’t do, would you feel more comfortable with an all-white jury of suburban women or a jury that contained white, black, Hispanic Americans from all walks of life?
That seems pretty easy: the second jury pool.
So with that in mind, is President Trump going to get a fair shake from the so-called “1/6 Committee” Nancy Pelosi stacked with members of Congress who all voted to impeach him — for nothing?
Just The News has more:
Every member of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s select committee to investigate the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol, which many conservatives view as a partisan game to blame Republicans and conservatives, had voted to impeach Trump.
Of the nine members on the select committee, seven are Democrats: Reps. Bennie Thompson, Zoe Lofgren, Adam Schiff, Jamie Raskin, Pete Aguilar, Stephanie Murphy, Elaine Luria; and two are Republicans: Reps. Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger. All nine of them voted to impeach Trump in January over his alleged involvement in the Jan. 6 riot.
The two Republican committee members publicly feuded with Trump during his presidency.
“My vote to impeach was compelled by the oath I swore to the Constitution,” Cheney said at the time of Trump’s second impeachment, which resulted in her getting censured by the Wyoming Republican Party. Kinzinger also faced backlash – from his own family – over his vote to impeach Trump.
California Rep. Adam Schiff had served as the lead impeachment manager during Trump’s first impeachment in 2020 and said at the time that “the task before us is a grave but necessary one.”
What a gaggle of liars.
There is nothing “necessary” or even constitutional about this latest Trump witch hunt.
The only reason why Pelosi convened it is to further indict the former president and wound him politically to prevent his 2024 presidential candidacy, which Democrats know they’ll lose (because they really didn’t win in 2020, either).
Our political system and all of its supporting parts and institutions are completely broken.
There is nothing we can do at this point other than start over, and without the element within our government that hates our founding.
