GOP appears transfixed like a deer in the headlights between a dilemma of providing a serious judgment of the House of Reprehensibles’ two impeachment articles, which would put the Senate’s imprimatur on the two charges, versus the national need to expose the House’s non-serious political antics by judging both articles as frivolous, without legal standing and exonerating Pres. Trump forthwith.
The nation needs both: 1. curbing future political frivolity by the House and 2. an expose to the nation of who and how this attempt to ouster the president and overthrow America from within happened.
There is a way, but I don’t know if there is a legal path to do it:
1. Judge the two articles frivolous and without merit and throw them out–BUT
2. Open an investigation how these frivolous articles of impeachment came to be (exposing all to the public for the national good), who is responsible and how future presidents can be protected from such attempts at an ouster.
If there’s no legal path to do both, then it’s a sorry state of affairs.
In any event, the immunity that shields Schiff seems to me in need of elimination.
