Cardin Questions Constitutional Validity of Impeachment Without Witnesses

January 31st, 2020 by WCBC Radio

U.S. Senator Ben Cardin has questioned the constitutional validity of the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump- saying that if it includes no witnesses or new evidence it doe not meet the established critera of an actual trial.  The Maryland Democrat cited an opinion from  Supreme Court Justice Byron White, in Nixon v.

    Well, in a judicial proceeding, if the plaintiff (the State) doesn’t present enough evidence to establish a conviction the defendant typically will move for a summary acquittal because the evidence just isn’t there. Which in such case, a directed verdict of acquittal is granted by the presiding judge. GAME OVER!

    Sin. Cardin & Sin.Raskin & 98.5% of the DEMONocRAT TYRANTS in Congress are Nothing MORE than Greedy, Self & Party Serving, Power Hungry Muppets/Puppets ~Both Things are: USELESS, Brainless, Soulless, Outmoded, Worthless Creatures Full of
    ????Schift????
    4????Brains???? & Require Schumer’s ????/Prick????/????/???? ???? their????????Sides to fake a spine,
    while Pelosi’s
    hands????&fingers???????? ATTEMPT to work their???????? ????????????????!

    DEMONocRATs in Congress are the WORST TYRANTS bcuz Nearly all are serving virtual ‘Life Terms’ in their Offices & Unless something is done on state levels, I suspect, Pelosi, Schumer, Nadler, Waters, Feinstein & so many others will only end vacate their seats when their Father, Lucifer, calls them. Down South to their Heated Home!

    The Lifers, though, have long forgotten their duties to CITIZENS because they’ve been serving. They needs/goals/agendas & visions of their Political Party, their financial supporters & themselves for so long without ever being held accountable for anything they’ve done or failed to do!
    Making them a Greater form of evil is how they’ve grown to fully feel & believe themselves to be Almighty, All Knowing, All Perfect, All Powerful ELITISTS ENTITLED TO CONTROL OUR COUNTRY & subsequently. our lives & eventually, The ????, especially because, according to them, we are Not intelligent or enlightened enough to do it on our own!

    Yes, there’s career, Elitists who are registered Republican, too, no better than the Demons~but, most of those you’ll find are like Gov Hogan, MD ~ Rhinos!
