NOTE TO MITCH: The Constitution Doesn’t Force You To Entertain Democrat Witch Hunts

The Senate Majority Leader is showing his constitutional illiteracy.

Published

on

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) vowed earlier today that he would go along with the Democratic Party’s witch hunt if the House formally impeaches President Donald Trump over his correspondence with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

“Well, under the Senate rules, we’re required to take it up if the House does go down that path, and we’ll follow the Senate rules … It’s a Senate rule related to impeachment that would take 67 votes to change, so I would have no choice but to take it up. How long you’re on it is a whole different matter, but I would have no choice but to take it up, based on a Senate rule on impeachment,” McConnell said today during an appearance on CNBC.

However, McConnell is misrepresenting the powers granted to the Senate under Article I, Section 3, Clause 6 of the Constitution, which states as follows:

The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two thirds of the Members present.

While the Constitution makes it clear that the Senate has “the sole power to try all Impeachments,” it does not state that the Senate must try any impeachment proceeding that is approved by the House. If McConnell and Senate Republicans had the will, they could simply ignore the House’s impeachment vote.

It appears that McConnell is intent upon going through with the Democrats’ charade, as he has remained consistent on his position for months.

“If it [impeachment] were to happen, the Senate has no choice. If the House were to act, the Senate immediately goes into a trial,” McConnell said to NPR in March.

McConnell continues to play both sides of the fence, making light of the Democratic Party’s witch hunt while simultaneously being willing to entertain their impeachment endeavor if they are willing to take it far enough.

“If this all sounds familiar,” McConnell said last week referring to the impeachment drive from the Democrats, “that’s because at this time literally one week ago, the same Democrats were shouting about impeaching [Supreme Court] Justice Brett Kavanaugh.”

“That rush to judgment was on the basis of a sketchy story in a major newspaper that promptly had to publish an enormous correction,” he added, in a reference to the New York Times being caught circulating misleading news. “But one week later, here they go again: Threatening impeachment without the facts in hand.”

“While our friends across the Capitol rush to judgment and dive deeper into their nearly three-year-old impeachment addiction, we’ll stay focused on the American people’s business,” McConnell said to finish his thought.

President Trump is apparently realizing that his own party’s leaders may not have his back, and has escalated his Twitter assault against the over-reaching Democrats in recent days:

With McConnell seemingly unwilling to use his power to protect President Trump from this witch hunt, Trump will likely be without many allies inside the beltway as he fights on behalf of the American people against this unprecedented assault on democracy.

White House Press Secretary: It Was Fine for Biden Family to Ignore COVID Edicts Because They Were ‘Celebrating’

The rules only apply to the peasants.

Published

on

White House Press Secretary Jennifer Psaki responded to concerns from reporters about President-imposed Joe Biden ignoring his own COVID-19 lockdown orders on inauguration day by claiming it was fine because he was “celebrating.”

Psaki is essentially making the argument that elected officials do not have to abide by their own edicts and that those orders are for the little people whom they lord over.

“Why weren’t President Biden and all members of the Biden family masked at all times on federal lands last night if he signed an executive order that mandates masks on federal lands at all times?” the reporter asked.

“He was celebrating, uh, an evening, uh uh uh, a historic day in our country, and certainly he signed the mask mandate because it’s a way to send a message to the American public,” Psaki said, stammering through her response.

This is far from the first time that Democrat politicians have violated their own orders with regards to COVID-19 in blatant fashion, as Big League Politics has reported:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is blaming a salon, alleging an elaborate conspiracy against her, after she was caught breaking COVID-19 quarantine rules to get a haircut.

“I take responsibility for trusting the word of a neighborhood salon,” Pelosi said to reporters on Wednesday. “It turns out it was a setup.”

Pelosi was apparently clueless about the COVID-19 restrictions in her home state of California and went solely on the word of the salon, if her dubious story can be believed at all.

“I take responsibility for trusting the word of a neighborhood salon that I’ve been to over the years many times,” Pelosi said.

“I trusted that – as it turns out it was a setup,” she added. “So I take responsibility for falling for a setup and that’s all I’m going to say on that.”

Now, she wants the salon to issue an apology to her for supposedly engaging in this elaborate conspiracy to make her look foolish and hypocritical.

“I think this salon owes me an apology for setting up,” she said.

Erica Kious, the California salon owner being criticized by Pelosi, is not likely to apologize. She appeared on Fox News to talk about Pelosi’s extreme contempt for the little people and her obvious belief that she is above the rules that others in non-privileged positions have to abide by.

“It was a slap in the face that she went in, you know, that she feels that she can just go and get her stuff done while no-one else can go in, and I can’t work,” she said.

In-door salon activity is still banned in the city of San Francisco, although outdoor haircuts are now permitted.

Democrats are no longer operating under the pretense that they are stewards of the people. They are planning to coronate a globalist technocracy with mush-brained Biden as the hapless figurehead.
