Van Hollen: ‘If You Have a Rigged
Trial There’s No Exoneration’ for Trump

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 12/29/2019 1:17:42 PM

On Sunday’s broadcast of ABC’s “This Week,” Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) argued if the Senate impeachment trial did not have witness and documents, it would be “rigged.” He argued he believed it would not be an exoneration for President Donald Trump if that is the case. Van Hollen said, “We’re focusing on the importance of a fair trial, and all Americans, I think, understand that a fair trial means you get to call your witnesses. Senator Murkowski put her finger on the big issue; is Senator McConnell going to try to rig this trial right from the start working in lockstep with the president

The exoneration will come in the form of the 2020 election.

What I hate most about dems isn't their cancerous ideology, it's their hypocrisy. The Republicans are doing it exactly how dems did it when clinton was impeached. Yet now that the shoe is on the other foot, listen to them yelping about it. This whole thing makes me want to puke.

The Dems strategy is to implant in the voter's minds the adage that "Where's there's smoke, there's fire." Just keep harping how Trump is a criminal, even though he isn't. They are hoping that enough fence-sitting voter's will vote for a Socialist who will appoint Obama to the Supreme Court. (Which Obama --- Barak or Michelle? Both are lawyers.)

#8, neither would ever survive a senate confirmation hearing. That would make their "voluntary" surrender of their law licenses fair game. Both "coluntarily" relinquished their law licenses to avoid a very public and messy disbarment. They, of course, say that they gave them up to save a couple hundred bucks in license and dues. Yeah, I believe that.

It isn’t a valid impeachment. There are no high crimes or even misdemeanors. If the impeachment was rigged, the only answer is to have a two minute trial in the Senate.

Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) is the one wanting to "rig" the impeachment trial in the Senate. The Constitution is specific about what the duties are for the Senate. If Hollen gets his way, it will continue the trashing of the Constitution begun by the Democrats in the House. After trampling the Bill of Rights into the mud by Schiff and Nader they want to ignore the separation of powers between the House and Senate by dictating that The Senate allow the Democrats to continue their "investigation" (aka, witch hunt) in the Senate. The Democrats claim that they want to "preserve the Constitution" is a sadistic, hypocritical lie.

What Sen. Van Hollen is saying is that unless the Senate convicts President Trump and removes him from office it must have been a "rigged" trial. That's not a trial, that's a lynch mob.

There is zero need for "exoneration". We still have a country in which you are innocent until proven guilty of a crime. Van Hollen and company can't even name the frigging crime. They just want one more chance at an open-ended witch hunt.

China is calling for peaceful dialogue to resume between the U.S. and North Korea. On Thursday, Beijing’s foreign minister called for both Pyongyang and Washington to soften rhetoric against each other amid the heightening tensions. Earlier this week, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un said the country is planning to unveil a “new strategic weapon” to deter perceived threats from the U.S. Kim also said North Korea no longer needs to adhere to its suspension of nuclear weapons testing.

The left has always been a movement in danger of going straight over the edge. You can see it in the rhetoric, the agenda, the public behavior, and the quality of people it attracts. Many of us have been waiting for years for it to blow up like a Soviet-era nuclear reactor. But although individual leftists have redlined (Hillary, Anthony Weiner, your name here), the movement as a whole has repeatedly pulled out before going into the abyss. There always seems to be a rescuing hand extended from somewhere or other. (More on that later.) That’s why 2019 was such a satisfactory year – much more satisfactory than most.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is calling on the Trump administration to immediately brief lawmakers on the U.S. airstrike that killed a top Iranian commander in Iraq and what the White House plans to do next. The strike in Iraq was directed by President Donald Trump and killed Qassem Soleimani, the commander of Iran's secretive Quds Force, the Department of Defense announced Thursday night. The move, which is likely to provoke retaliation from Iran, comes amid heightened tensions between the Trump administration and Tehran over rocket attacks aimed at coalition forces in Iraq. U.S. officials have said those attacks were likely carried out by Iranian-backed militias with links to the Quds Force.

So much for the taunt from Iran’s “supreme leader,” Ayatollah Khamanei, that America “cannot do a damn thing” about Iran’s attack on our embassy in Baghdad. It took President Trump but a day after that jibe to wheel on the Iranians. He launched a drone attack that found and killed the commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps, General Qassim Soleimani. It is likely to mark a turning point in the not-so-quasi war that Iran has been levying against us — and, among others, Israel. This is not a situation in which responsibility is being debated on murky evidence.

The U.S. killing of Qassim Soleimani In Baghdad on Thursday ends an enduring threat. At least in the short term, however, it will unleash Iranian retaliation. The leader of the external action arm of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Soleimani long led that regime's efforts to destroy its enemies and expand its revolution. From an explosive campaign that killed hundreds of U.S. soldiers in Iraq, to supporting Bashar Assad's regime with legions of Shiite fighters and IRGC operatives, to conducting a campaign of bombings and assassinations and intimidation across the world, Soleimani was a master of his very dark arts. He was a serious

So, just who is this top Iranian general the U.S. just eliminated? For many of us who watch and analyze news out of the Middle East daily, he was the world’s number one bad guy. Qassim Soleimani has been in control of Iran’s Quds Force for more than 20 years. His current greatest hits include helping Bashar al Assad slaughter hundreds of thousands of his own people in the Syrian civil war, stoking the Houthis in Yemen’s civil war, and overseeing the killing of hundreds of Iraqi protesters recently demonstrating against Iranian influence in their country.

The plan, if approved at the church’s worldwide conference in Minneapolis in May, would divide the denomination into two branches: a traditionalist branch that opposes gay marriage and the ordination of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender clergy, and a more tolerant branch that will allow same-sex marriage and LGBT clergy. The split would affect the denomination globally, church leaders said. The United Methodist Church lists more than 13 million members in the United States
