GOP lawmaker: Senate should be able to ignore impeachments it doesn't like

By Josh Israel -March 2, 2020 5:15 PM

Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) said the chamber should have no responsibility to take up trials when the House submits articles of impeachment.

Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) wants to change Senate rules to make it so that an impeachment trial is no longer automatic when the House impeaches a president. His reasoning? Trials "derail Senate legislative activity."

Cramer announced on Monday that he had submitted some "final thoughts on the impeachment trial" of Donald Trump for the congressional record. In his lengthy statement, he first reiterated his belief that the House of Representatives did not prove its case against Trump.

Next, Cramer suggested a reevaluation of current rules that require immediate trials if the House votes for articles of impeachment, especially when they are in his view "entirely partisan."

"While I agree such an enormous responsibility should elicit our undivided attention, it seems illogical to automatically grant primacy to impeachment articles, especially those as flawed as the ones presented by House Democrats," he wrote.

3. What a crock of cow pie. It's obvious that Senate members already are able to be ignorant

ignoramuses and conspirators that work against the public good despite all evidence. I predict that these same Senators will soon be apologizing profusely to the American People but it will be too late.

4. Can we also PUNCH lawmakers we don't like?

If we are starting wish lists?

I'd like mandatory drug testing of all members of Congress before sworn in, AND random testing for drugs and ability to serve?

Same for SCOTUS & POTUS & VP.

We need high fucking standards for leaders, we aint even in the same galaxy on that one?
