Just over ten minutes ago the Senate returned a not guilty plea against donald john trump in his impeachment trial.
Both Articles of Impeachment were not able to garner the necessary votes to find the president guilty as charged.
In brief, it is not the vote that makes us remark what a sad day it is but rather the fact the Senate refused to grant him a fair, equitable and just trial.
Refusing the allow witnesses and documents to be presented makes mockery of the "not guilty" verdict.
Whether trump is guilty or not has not be proven.
What has been proven is the undeniable and flagrant slap in the face our Constitution and system of government has be dealt.
A blow that quite frankly I sincerely doubt will ever be rectified.
We now live in a Monarchy. One that allows the president supreme powers. No longer can he be held in check by Congress and our laws.
Executive privilege, something that is not mentioned by the Constitution and is a recently invented procedure underpinning the bogus idea of a "unitary executive", is unlawful for sure but the way donald trump has used it sends the death knell for our Founding Father's ideas of Constitutional Liberty and Freedom.
Again this is a very tragic day for America. If you do not think so you have not been paying attention. So wake the fuck up.
