(Liberty Bell) – Now here’s a good laugh.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) declared independence Tuesday that he was completely capable of being an “impartial juror” because he apparently believes that Americans are absolute idiots who haven’t listened to a word the Democrats have said about Trump for the last three years.
That’s just rich!
Schumer made the lofty statement while being asked by a reporter if he and his fellow Democrats would be able to live up to the absurd legal standards they’ve set for the Republicans.
Schumer, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL), and other Democrats had accused Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and other Republicans of being overly partisan (hahahahahahaha) and violating their duty to act as impartial jurors in the eventual trial of President Donald Trump in the Senate.
The House of Representatives is voting on impeachment on Wednesday.
The Democrats and their cohorts in the media have claimed that the Republicans have already determined Trump to be innocent—as anyone with half a brain would do, since we are aware that the Democrats have no evidence that Trump committed an impeachable offense.
Somehow, the Democrats can accuse the GOP of having already made their minds when they’ve clear all made their minds up as well!
How long have we heard members of their caucus swear up and down Trump is guilty as sin?
Schumer insisted that McConnell allow new witnesses to be called into the Senate’s hearing, accusing the Republicans of a “cover-up” if they refuse (oh, the old fallback).
Here is the interaction between Schumer and a reporter at a presser on Tuesday:
Reporter: Can you legitimately look people in the eye and say that you are impartial?
Schumer: I am —
Reporter: Have you made up your mind that the president is guilty?
Schumer: — I am withholding any final decision until we hear all the evidence. And one of the reasons that we want these witnesses and documents is so that we can hear the full, full length and breadth of what happened.
Schumer opposes calling Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, who held a seat from 2014 until April 2019 on the board of the Ukrainian gas company, Burisma, while his father was in charge of Ukraine policy.
Meanwhile, McConnell shot down Schumer’s pathetic demands in a speech on the Senate floor Tuesday:
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) hinted in a speech on the Senate floor Tuesday morning that the Senate will move to dismiss the pending articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump after opening arguments in the expected trial.
McConnell was reacting to a proposal by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on Monday that the Senate call four additional, in-person witnesses that were not called, or not available, during the House inquiry, led by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA).
But McConnell dismissed that suggestion out of hand, arguing that Schumer was trying to make “Chairman Schiff’s sloppy work more persuasive.”
McConnell accused Schumer of going straight to the news media with his proposals rather than speaking to him in person, as Senate leaders had done in the past.
He also noted that Schumer had misquoted the Constitution. The Democrat leader had claimed the Constitution gave the Senate “sole Power of Impeachment,” whereas Article I, Section 3 actually states, “The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments.”
“We don’t create impeachments over here … we judge them,” he declared.
