The Wall Street Journal offered some thoughts along these lines re the current impeachment trial.
Especially pernicious is the new House “corrupt purposes” standard for removing a President from office.
“Corrupt Purposes,” though, isn’t the only failure of this so-called impeachment that’s being tried in the Senate. Just as pernicious, certainly far more dangerous, is Progressive-Democrats’ repeated (including Wednesday afternoon by Jerry Nadler in his presentation before the Senate) demand that Trump produce documents, witnesses to prove his innocence.
This attacks the very core of American jurisprudence; it sets every American, not just a Party-hated President, at direct, personal risk.
It’s dismaying that the NLMSM, not the WSJ alone, wholly ignores this unAmerican attack on one of our foundational principles.
