Why aren't 2020 Dems recusing themselves from the Senate trial?
If Trump is being impeached with the ultimate goal of removing him from office and the 2020 election race, why are 2020 Democrats permitted to hold his destiny in their hands, when they can realistically benefit from his removal?
The motivation is the same, is it not? If Trump wanted Ukraine to publicly investigate his 2020 rival for the express purpose of getting him out of the 2020 race, to his benefit, then how is this different?
Each 2020 Dem candidate who sits in judgement simply cannot deny that IF they vote guilty and Trump is removed, they will all but guarantee that their party will win the 2020 election, and be in power, if not further, they as and individual just might become the most powerful person on earth.
They have the power to remove the biggest obstacle to Democrats winning in 2020.
They must recuse. The conflict of interest is impeachable!
Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, took a moment to remind voters and the mainstream media both of this staggering conflict of interest in a statement issued Wednesday – the same day the articles of impeachment were transmitted to the Senate.
From her statement:
“Tomorrow, one hundred United States Senators will be sworn in to serve in the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump. Four of those Senators must recuse themselves for their unparalleled political interest in seeing this President removed from office. These four Democrats, Senators Bennet, Klobuchar, Sanders, and Warren, cannot sit in judgment of the very President they seek to replace. To participate in this trial would be a failure of the oath they took to be an ‘impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws’. Their presidential ambitions prohibit their ability to view this trial through an objective lens.”
