Rep. Thomas Massie Discusses the Donald Trump Impeachment ‘Farce’

“This is a farce; it’s a sham.” That is how Rep. Thomas Massie, in a Monday interview with host Kennedy at Fox Business, concluded his assessment of the expedited impeachment of President Donald Trump in the United States House of Representatives before Trump’s presidential term ended and the similarly rushed trial of the now former president that is taking place this week in the US Senate.

Why does Massie reach this conclusion? Plenty of reasons, including that the trial is unconstitutional given that Trump no longer is president (an understanding already agreed to by enough senators in a vote to make clear the Senate trial will not lead to a conviction), that the claimed wrongdoing by Trump is political speech protected under the First Amendment of the US Constitution, and that there was a total lack of due process in the manner Trump’s impeachment was considered in the House. Concerning the lack of due process in the House, Massie notes the impeachment was rushed to the House floor for a vote without committee consideration and without an opportunity for Trump to present evidence or arguments in opposition to impeachment.
