With a Republican majority in the U.S. Senate, Donald Trump has been remaking the judiciary with record speed. Approximately 25 percent of circuit court judges are Trump appointees, and Democrats just can't stand that. It seems that throughout Trump's presidency they've come up with various unconstitutional schemes to thwart Trump's ability to make his mark on the judicial branch of our federal government.
Now that the Democrats' partisan impeachment has reached the Senate, failed 2020 presidential candidate and U.S. Senator Kamala Harris is making a similar argument to put the brakes on Trump's making the judiciary great again. Today, the United States Senate will receive articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump and begin to determine whether the presidents actions warrant his removal from office, Harris said in a statement . The president is charged with high crimes and misdemeanors, and the Senate must take seriously its constitutional role in this process. During the time when articles of impeachment are before the Senate, it would be wholly inappropriate to advance the presidents nominees to the federal judiciary.
Despite the House impeachment inquiry, Trump continued to have success getting conservative judges on the courts. Harris thinks that somehow the situation has changed and Trump doesn't have the presumption of innocence or the constitution on his side.

It’s not just about his judicial nominees.
Remove Trump and a great period of unpleasantness will begin.
how is this not a civil war fully declared
by the terrorist Democrats against
the ELECTED PRESIDENT and his voters?
[NBC wants them executed to the 4th generation.]
The president is charged with high crimes and misdemeanors...”
Um, no, he’s not. Neither of the two articles rises to that level. That is what makes this so much fun. Who else laughed out loud when they saw the video of the dems walking the articles to the senate like they were carrying a casket? :)
RBG will be pleased to hear this.
Right, not anymore.
Unpleasantness for some. And a huge, cleansing catharsis for others.
Constitutionally, impeachment can only be used in the case of high crimes and misdemeanors, not political maneuvering. There are no crimes included in the articles sent to the Senate. The whole thing needs to be thrown out and someone reminded of that.
The RATs and the enemedia have definitely declared war on the POTUS and American voters.
It only becomes “fully declared” if they actually successfully remove him. So far it’s still just a farce.

The House in this matter was serially dishonest, unfair and acted beyond the bounds of the Constitution. With respect to the impeachment of Trump, I think the public would be overwhelmingly happy and satisfied if the Senate delivered the House the giant "F U" that they deserve on this.
But he has NOT been charged with high crimes and misdemeanors. He’s been charged with one count of shooting a spitball, and one count of pulling Jenny Clapsaddle’s pigtails. Case dismissed.
In olden days, laws were created and enforced by a monarch and its supporting nobility. In a democracy, the people perform those roles. In a democratic republic, representatives pass the laws but they are ultimately answerable to the people. Democrats dont like this system. They have worked for decades to avoid public accountability for unpopular laws by two means: first, by selecting judges who are insulated from the people but fully willing to create new laws and, second, by establishing unaccountable bureaucrats (the Deep State) to actually define and enforce the laws. Trump threatens their long game to set up a monarchy in all but name so he has to go.
Good one...I believe San Fran Nan really screwed up with her little ceremony yesterday and she’s catching flak for it.
Pay back time is coming in November.
Sounds to me like Kamala Harris was absent the day they taught law at law school.
Or am I wrong?
