Democrats' Impeachment Hit a Farce That Will Cost Them

The Democratic congressional leadership is determined to proceed with the impeachment and trial of former President Trump.

This does not bode well for the possibilities of good government from the Democrats in the next 18 months, before the campaigning begins for the midterm elections, because this impeachment must stand as the stupidest legislative initiative in the entire history of the United States of America.

All readers will be aware that that the preceding sentence is an extraordinary superlative for which there is fierce competition, yet it seems well justified.

This impeachment ignored all precedent and prior practice, which required the presentation of evidence, witnesses, and a full right to reply and call and question witnesses by the accused.

There was none of that in this case; in fact, there was no due process whatsoever; it was a sham and an outrage that would not be tolerated in any court in the U.S. at any time, not excluding courts that have acquitted those accused of lynching or courts that upheld blacklists, or even the colonial courts that purported to identify witches.
