Thursday on CNN’s The Situation Room, Sen. Richard Blumenthal said President Trump’s “abject criminality” is why the Founders created the impeachment process.
“But remember that these witnesses and documents may, in fact, contain very incriminating additional evidence,” Blumenthal said, “and that’s profoundly important in a trial that involves such abject criminality: in effect, holding hostage taxpayer funds, military aid for an ally fighting for its life in return for personal support and favors. That kind of bribery and abuse of power is exactly what the founders sought to prevent through the impeachment proceeding…
“By the way,” he added, “I think the evidence right now is overwhelming. I’m willing to listen to more evidence if the president has any evidence that shows his innocence, but right now, as a former prosecutor, I could say I rest my case.”
The Democrats have no case. What the Founders would consider the real abuse of power is this sham impeachment.
