Senate Republicans are getting ready to try President Donald Trump after he was impeached by Congress in a partisan witch hunt on Wednesday, and they want him to be quiet on Twitter while they conduct their business.
“This is a solemn and serious undertaking and I just think we don’t need a bunch of distractions,” said Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), who believes that it would be “optimal” for Trump to stay off of Twitter.
“The president will like the outcome, I believe, in the end. So … making it easier not harder would be a good thing,” he added.
“The president would be best served by letting his lawyers speak for him and not doing any comment. At all,” Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) said. “I doubt, however, that he will heed my advice.”
Collins is correct in her assessment that the President is unlikely to listen to her and let Senate Republicans and their swampy lawyers do his fighting for him. The senators clearly want to be the stars of the show and do not want the President to upstage them while conducting their proceedings.
“He needs to be respectful of the process,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC). “He can defend himself, he has a right to express his grievances but if I were him I would … keep a low profile.”
“There [are] many cases in which I hope he doesn’t tweet,” Senate Majority Whip John Thune (R-SD) said.
“Tweet less, smile more,” said Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) in a condescending suggestion to the President.
Up to this point, Trump has fended off the witch hunt led by Democrats and the deep state with the power of his Twitter account. Although he was impeached by Congressional Democrats yesterday, his poll ratings continue to improve with the general public.
Big League Politics reported:
A Suffolk University/USA Today Poll shows President Trump is now ahead of his likely electoral competition in next year’s presidential election.
Trump is beating former Vice President Joe Biden by 3 points in the poll. He is leading Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders by 5 points, and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren by 8 points. He is up on former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg by 9 points, and beating South Bend, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg by 10 points.
“Polls taken nearly a year before an election are hardly a reliable indicator about what the eventual outcome will be, especially when the other nominee hasn’t been chosen. But the findings do indicate that impeachment hearings detailing what critics see as Trump’s violations of the Constitution and his oath of office haven’t undermined his core political support,” USA Today wrote while analyzing their poll findings.
Trump is also doing better in battleground states as voters see the Democrats grasping at straws conducting their partisan witch hunt.
Polling by Firehouse Strategies and Optimus released last week also showed how impeachment has resulted in Trump gaining in the Midwest. He now has substantial leads in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, with a six point lead over all competitors in those crucial states.
Senate Republicans would be wise to follow the President’s lead during his trial in their chamber, instead of trying to influence him to deny his instincts.
Democrat Congressmen Introduce Term Limits Legislation for SCOTUS Justices As Trump Prepares Nominee
Three Democrat members of Congress are introducing legislation to institute term limits for Supreme Court justices, as President Trump prepares to nominate his third candidate for the court following the death of progressive liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Democrats Joe Kennedy, Ro Khanna, and Don Beyer are proposing legislation that would limit SCOTUS justice to a maximum term of eighteen years on the court.
Lifetime appointments to the highest court in our land undermine our democratic process and erode progress in our nation.
We must enact 18 year term limits on our Supreme Court justices to continue our march towards a more perfect union. https://t.co/9fCyggP686
— Rep. Joe Kennedy III (@RepJoeKennedy) September 25, 2020
Khanna has proposed an idea that would allow Presidents to appoint two judges in each term. “Senior” members of the court would be required to basically retired for every new member of the court.
When I first ran for Congress in 2014, I proposed limiting terms of Supreme Court Justice to 18-appointments.
Given the recent, dramatic politicization of the Court, it's time for real reform.
— Rep. Don Beyer (@RepDonBeyer) September 25, 2020
It’s pretty funny the Democrats are uniting behind these proposals the moment they appear primed to lose control of the Supreme Court for a generation. They weren’t complaining when Obama was trying to replace Antonin Scalia with progressive Merrick Garland, even going so far as claiming that the stealth liberal was entitled to the seat. Reports emerging Friday suggest that President Donald Trump intends to nominate Amy Coney Barrett, a mostly conservative judge with a pro-life and immigration hawk judicial record.
The judicial branch of government is arguably the most flawed element of American governance, and it’s highly questionable how institutions such as the Supreme Court are able to appoint themselves a nearly unlimited amount of political power.
A better reform proposals would be to institute term limits for justices that only go into effect after the current members of the court vacate their seats. Anything else is simply a political power grab.
