Quick thoughts: Senators must recuse from impeachment trial

December 21, 2019 – NO Soundbites Allowed – Assuming that Speaker Pelosi ever releases the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate, there must be a discussion about the Senators that can’t be involved. It’s a subject everyone seems to have overlooked.

In a court trial, potential jurors would never be allowed that have a conflict of interest. It would be a mistrial. No judge nor defense attorney would let it happen.

But why are Democrats acting as if this staple of modern trials is beyond the pale of consideration? Why are publicly declared political opponents with a political goal allowed to vote on impeachment? Why isn’t the mainstream asking this question?
