White House Reconsidering Lengthy Senate Trial

The White House is apparently reconsidering a lengthy Senate trial and have instead been considering a short one that will get it over as quickly as possible.

According to The Hill:

The White House is softening its calls for a lengthy Senate impeachment trial that would include several controversial witnesses just as the House prepares to impeach President Trump.

The president and some of his top advisers have indicated publicly in recent days that they are open to a shorter trial in the upper chamber, a view that aligns with multiple Republican senators who have said they hope to quickly acquit Trump if he is impeached in the House.

“Plans are being made. I’m not going to get ahead of the legal strategy just yet, I don’t want to tip our hand,” White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said Wednesday on “Fox & Friends.”

“The president is weighing especially what is best for the country,” she continued. “If we go into a long trial, is that what’s good for the country? We’re not sure yet.”

Kellyanne Conway did state that the most important part of the Senate trial is allowing President Trump to make his case that he did nothing wrong.

This has never been a fair process. I see no reason to prolong this Democrat partisan farce: just as in a trial court, this travesty should be summarily dismissed with prejudice as a miscarriage of justice. Yes, we all want to see the lying scheming perpetrators of this get their comeuppance; but that is another process for another court and another time.

Eric Anthony, While I understand where you are coming from, I don’t agree with a speedy Trial. I will explain myself: The President was shafted in the House Sham and he needs to be vindicated with the facts, NOT a partisan vote to quickly “get it over with”! If they just vote to quickly acquit the President, the Dims will always contend that it was just a partisan acquittal and not fact driven. The FACTS need to be presented to the Public. We had to put up with all of the lies and false hoods against our President. Time for the TRUTH to be exposed. If this is a “fair” process, there will be many indictments to all of those involved in this travesty! This was an orchestrated attempt to take down a sitting President. A COUP! It can not be allowed to fall by the wayside without consequences to those that carried it out. Otherwise, it will become just another tool for the dims to continually harass and obstruct ant future Republican Presidents. If you are okay with that, I can not be okay with your thinking!

It is time to put these bastards out of their misery. Elites/DeepState/RINOS/DEMOS
Evidence Piling Up That Prosecutors Blackmailed Gen. Michael Flynn with Threat of Prosecuting his Son. Evidence is piling up that federal prosecutors committed serious misconduct in their attempt to put Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn in jail.
What the hell has our government come too? We are no different than China/Russia or Cuba.
We are exceedingly proud of your many promises fulfilled.
Liberals are furious that you, Mr. President… Donald Trump is about to be awarded the “Bipartisan Justice Award” by a prestigious black justice group for your work on criminal justice reform.
It is time we take back our country and restore the Rule of Law. Martial Law will be the throw down and all hell will break loose.
Let’s get this done.

This wreaks of cronyism and protecting the 607 largest campaign donors whom finance the fed reserve enlarge.
Trump – lean on the Senate to jurisdict according to the law rather than running cover for the trilateral commission, CFR, skull & crossbones, etc.

I’ve got to say…a synchronicity just happened. I get this from the WH, then receive a bit from Ted Cruz. His only question was, “Do you think President Trump deserves a Senate Trial?” So my answer was “Yes”. It’s time for our President to have a chance to have the Senate Majority to have a say…and they can then ‘drop it all’ and find that this impeachment was and Illegitimate and Unlawful Impeachment.
Let’s get the ones who are guilty of Sedition and Treason OUT OF OFFICE.

When Bribery, Treason, High Crimes or a Misdemeanor are presented with facts than I support the President to bring the fight to the Senate until than its business as usual. These nefarious characters will be dealt with when the Red Wave overcomes Nov 2020. Than the Republicans can bring articles against many Dems in Congress. Until Pelosi releases the 2 articles of impeachment to the Senate I would recommend that McConnell leave it be with a letter to Pelosi. If the Senate does not receive these 2 articles by the start of the new year I will dismiss it with no do process.

Schumer wants to broaden the witness list so it has more opportunity to cheat.
Don’t go there Mr. President.
Leave them to suffocate in the stew of their own creation.
No more ‘last chances !!!”

They VIOLATED ALL.
Record this EVIL for posterity!
VOID ! REVERSE !!

THERE HAS BEEN NO IMPEACHMENT.

Certainly not gonna second guess Trump or even his legal team, but I think this is a one time opportunity to stick a fork in a well done jackass steak. This coup attempt just sticks in my craw and I am not alone in that feeling. With Trump’s popularity riding high and the low life activities of the cross burning night riders of the democrat party exposed for the world to see, this is the best time to pump the septic tank that Washington has become. Get all the Shiff out at one time. I know some Republicans with dirty hands such as (Lindsey Graham), are worried about what may get exposed, but for the good guys and gals it’s time to counter attack and finish this war.
