Innocent or guilty?
To the Editor:
Now the trial of the impeachment of President Trump has come to an end. We must turn our attention to the U.S. Senate for holding a so-called trial without searching for the total truth.
There were many differences in this trial. This trial did not have any witnesses. There were witnesses that stated they would testify in the trial if asked. Some witnesses stated they had important information to share with the jurors, but they were not allowed to speak. The jurors voted 52 to 48 to not allow witnesses. The Republican voting in the majority. A trial without witnesses. Is this justice or a sham trial?
There were amendments presented to have a just and fair trial, but they were all voted down by the Republicans. Then came the day of the final vote on the Articles of Impeachment and removal of the President from office. Only one Republican found his moral courage to vote against the President.
I feel this so-called trial with no witnesses has divided our country. I believe the Senate Republicans refusal to hear from witnesses suggest they believe the President is guilty. Do you believe the President is guilty?
Whether you are a Democrat, Republican, or Independent we are all Americans. We all desire the truth. Why do we allow our elected officials to hide the truth from us?
