A “Partisan Impeachment” Would Be the Will of the People

A “partisan impeachment” would be the will of the people.

As a famous Kentuckian once said, “let the election decide” the next Supreme Court appointment.  Mitch then unconstitutionally blocked Obama’s Supreme Court appointment, with essentially a year to go before the next President was sworn in.

The massive overthrow of the Republican House in the 2018 election was essentially a vote on President Trump and his thousands of lies, unfulfilled pie-in-the-sky promises, and the investigation for trying to pull off the same foreign influence and gathering dirt campaign and obstruction of investigation that he has now blatantly repeated.

While you can try to dismiss the impeachment vote as partisan, it is close to the will of the people in getting rid of Trump as well as blocking his multifaceted destruction of government at the will of some unpopular factions and funding oligarchs.  The main exceptions to the will of the people are the gerrymandered representatives.

The Senate ruling on an impeachment conviction itself is not representative of the people like the House is.  It is Republicanized by our Republic which gives equal representation to each State, regardless of population.  The House distribution shows how far off the Senate is from being representative of the people.
