A well-constituted court for the trial of impeachments is an object not more to be desired than difficult to be obtained in a government wholly elective. The subject of its jurisdiction are those offenses which proceed from the misconduct of public men, or in other words, from the abuse or violation of some public trust. They are of a nature which may peculiar property be denominated POLITICAL, as they relate chiefly to injuries done immediately to the society itself. The prosecution of them, for this reason, will seldom fail to agitate the passions of the whole community, and to divide it into parties more or less friendly or inimical to the accused. In many cases it will connect itself with the pre-existing factions, and will enlist all their animosities, partialities, influence, and interest on one side or on the other; and in such cases there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.

AN OPINION FROM THE DEPLORABLE INFIDEL
Adam Schiff was continually interrupting Republican Congresswoman Elise Steffanik and not letting her ask questions in the so-called impeachment dog and pony show put on by the moron America hating Democrats. The MSM said nothing.
If the shoe had been on the other foot, and a Republican had denied a Democrat congressman her right to speak, the MSM would have raised all kinds of hell.
A SIMPLE TRUTH FOR TODAY
“A society that puts equality ahead of freedom will end up with neither equality nor freedom.”
