I’ve had a chance to see some of the televised reports on yesterday’s Judicial Committee hearings. I’ve lived through three impeachment’s in my life. Nixon, Clinton and now Trump. As I said before I’m biased. I consider myself a Republican but not a Trump supporter. In today’s vernacular I’d be called a ‘never Trumper.’
I think President Clinton should have been impeached. I think he lied under oath, and as president he should be held to a higher standard. If he hadn’t lied under oath I would have considered his affair with Monica Lewinsky a family issue between he and his wife.
Devon Nunes, the ranking Republican member of the Intelligence Committee is involved in this. There are phone records of him talking to Rudy Giuliani and a man named Lev Parnas. Giuliani is supposed to be the president‘s lawyer, Lev Parnas is under indictment.
Professor Pamela Karlan made a remark about the president’s son Baron. I didn’t think it was that big a deal, but she later apologized. She made a good point about President Trump’s remark about investigating Joe and Hunter Biden. The president didn’t care if there was an investigation by Ukraine, he just wanted them to say they were. He just wanted to be able to say his political opponent was being investigated.
I can’t stress how blind the president‘s supporters are. There is a news network called Fox News. They are very pro Republican and Trump and they are worse than useless. The people that watch it are never going to understand what’s happening because they don’t tell them. It’s propaganda.
If the president and his followers hear something on the news they don’t like they call it ‘fake news.’ Because of this there aren’t any facts anymore. I don’t understand how the Republicans could have fallen so far.
When the Senate starts the trial I believe none of the Republican Senators will vote to impeach. Truth makes no difference. The only thing Mr. Trump’s followers care about are the second amendment, being anti abortion, building a wall between Mexico and the United States and illegal immigrants. They say they are Christian but I don’t see it.
I think racism plays a big role in everything that’s going on. The United States is changing. White people will be in the minority in the next 30 years. There are a lot of whites that don’t want that to happen. It is a sorry state of affairs.
