The Democrat “impeachment managers” are Constitutionally unlawful. In fact, the mere presence of “impeachment managers” in the Senate during impeachment proceedings violates a very specific and incontrovertible tenet of Constitutional law, that of ensuring both the House and Senate components of the impeachment and trial processes remain completely and entirely separate. Our Founding Fathers were so adamant about preventing any and all influences one half of Congress might have on the other they incorporated this into the very first Article of our Constitution for the United States of America.
The House of Representatives shall … have the SOLE Power of Impeachment.” – Article I, Section 2, Clause 5
The Senate shall have the SOLE Power to try all Impeachments.” – Article I, Section 3, Clause 6Constitution for the United States of America. Retrieved from: https://www.archives.gov/founding-docs/constitution-transcript
Before we continue, let’s review a couple of definitions:
SOLE: functioning independently and without assistance or interference; belonging exclusively or otherwise limited to one usually specified individual, unit, or groupsole. Merriam-Webster online dictionary. Retrieved from: https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/sole
SHALL: used to express a command or exhortation; used in laws, regulations, or directives to express what is mandatoryshall. Merriam-Webster online dictionary. Retrieved from: https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/shall
By introducing “impeachment managers” into the Senate, the House is violating the letter, spirit and intent of “the supreme Law of the Land” i.e. the Constitution for the United States of America (Article. VI.).
This isn’t optional, either for the House or for the Senate. The Constitution says, “shall.” It’s MANDATORY. When it comes to impeachments, there shall not be ANY influence by the Senate over the House of Representatives, NOR by the House of Representatives over the Senate.
The creation and use of “impeachment managers” is precisely what our Constitution flat-out declares is ABSOLUTELY PROHIBITED.
This Democrat dog and pony show must end. It is highly illegal.
House of Representatives: Does the Senate interfere with your decision as to whether or not to bring impeachment charges against someone? Do they dictate to you what those charges ought to be?
Of course not. “The House of Representatives has the SOLE power of Impeachment.” It would be UNLAWFUL for the Senate to stick their nose into your Constitutionally exclusive business.
Senate: Does the House interfere with your decision as to how to try the individual for for the impeachment charges they have levied? Oh, they do, do they? “Impeachment managers,” you say! Well, Senate, here’s a thought: They’re sticking their noses in YOUR process in direct VIOLATION of the Constitution for the United States of America.
If I might make a suggest: Kick ’em out. Give them the BOOT!
WHEN, America, are you going to WAKE UP and realize Congressional Demoncraps are LYING TO YOU?
STOP the un-Constitutional abuses of Congressional Demoncraps. Charge THEM with their own violations and demand their own impeachment. Yes, members of both houses most certainly ARE civil officers, even to the point of taking an oath of office.
No, Dems and libs, you’re NOT “woke.” You’re just as brain-dead as you ever were.
