Letter to the editor: Will the Senate be on the correct side of history?
Martha McSally has an obligation to be a non-bias juror in the Impeachment Trial of the President. Her response to a very pertinent question by Manu Raju of CNN about the recent Government Accountability Office (GAO) decision that the withholding of money to Ukraine by Trump was illegal, was unacceptable. McSally responded “Manu, you’re a liberal hack. I am not talking to you.”
Sorry Senator. You are the hack. You are not deserving of the Junior seat in the United States Senate for Arizona if you cannot defend the Constitution. Congress holds the purse strings when it comes to the distribution of monies to foreign governments. Your time in Washington will be short lived after you lose to Mark Kelley on Nov. 6, 2020.
Trump’s withholding of congressionally appropriated money to Ukraine was illegal as per the GAO. His refusal to cooperate with a legitimate investigation by the House of Representatives was obstruction of justice. Therefore, both articles of Impeachment delivered to the Senate this past week have been proven to be true. Donald J. Trump is guilty as charged. The only question is whether the Senate will be on the correct side of history.
