A Stirring of Conscience in the Senate

The holiday break has thus far provided little respite for President Trump, who has spent much of his time venting over what he sees as the injustice of his impeachment.

The refusal by the House speaker, Nancy Pelosi, to submit the formal articles to the Senate until she has a clearer sense of how the trial will be conducted is a travesty, the president told reporters on Tuesday morning at his Mar-a-Lago resort. “They treated us very unfairly, and now they want fairness in the Senate.”

By Christmas night, Mr. Trump had worked himself into a lather. “Why should Crazy Nancy Pelosi, just because she has a slight majority in the House, be allowed to Impeach the President of the United States?” he tweeted.

Short answer: Because that is how the separation of powers works. And what the Constitution prescribes when a chief executive abuses his office.

2. Unfortunately, what used to be the senate is now Moscow Mitch's duma.

3. " ... they want fairness in the Senate." I'd settle for that.
