Democrat lawmaker calls for murdering Trump.
« on: December 19, 2019, 05:29:40 PM »
Berman and Clyburn were discussing a possible delay in delivering the articles of impeachment. The Democrat called for the need to avoid a “kangaroo court” run by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell:

JOHN BERMAN: Why the delay, Congressman?

CLYBURN: Well, the delay is made necessary because the majority leader of the Senate has made it very clear that he’s not going to be impartial. He’s not going to be fair. He will collude, if you please, with the White House, at least the White House’s attorneys, to decide how he will go forward. Why would the speaker of the House step into that without trying to determine exactly what the majority leader plans to do?
So I applaud her for this. In fact, I was one of the ones arguing that this ought to be the case. And until we can get some assurances from the Majority Leader that he is going to allow for a fair and impartial trial to take place, we would be crazy to walk in there knowing he set up a kangaroo court.

BERMAN: How long are you willing to wait?

CLYBURN: As long as it takes. Even if he doesn’t come around to committing to a fair trial, keep those articles here. So keep it as long as it takes. If you know and he’s told you what he’s going to do, let’s give him a fair trial and hang him. It’s the reverse of that.

NO objection from Berman. No asking for clarification over this shocking remark (or botched attempt at an analogy). Instead, the CNN host just moved on to obsessing about details of the trial:

BERMAN: As long as it takes? Are you willing to hold the articles indefinitely if Mitch McConnell doesn’t concede the points that you’re asking him to? Are you suggesting it’s possible you will never transmit the articles of impeachment?

CLYBURN: If it were me, yes, that’s what I’m saying. I have no idea what the speaker will do. But if you have a preordained outcome that’s negative to your actions, why walk into it? I’d much rather not take that chance.

McConnell's speech on the Senate floor was articulate and correct. He said the articles of impeachment that the Dems - completely on their own without a single Republican vote - were "incoherent." He also said he wasn't going to have the Senate "do the House's homework" for them.

In short, it sounded to me like he was going to shut the damned thing down without even a trial. The articles of impeachment didn't rise to "high crimes and misdemeanors" enough to warrant wasting the Senate's time.

Not sure I agree with that. Guiliani has a shit-ton of documentation from Latvia and other countries that pretty much IDs Hunter Biden as a money-launderer. All of that really nasty shit needs to come out, and if it taints Quid Pro Joe, too f'n bad.

The democrats won’t be happy until the senate agrees to a guilty verdict before a trial.
