Well, the circus is well underway now. The prosecution has done nothing but produce lie after lie. They even edited Trump’s speech before the riot and removed the word “peacefully”. The defense of course has their own unedited version that they will produce when they present their case.
For those of you who are thinking, “What if the Senate believes the defense phonied up their version?”
Remember that in any criminal procedure, the defendant is to be presumed innocent until proven guilty. Unless the prosecution can prove the defense’s version has been faked, they must accept the defense’s version. The law is clear on this. In the lack of evidence, the benefit of the doubt must go to the defense.
It is better that 100 guilty men go free than accidentally hang one innocent person. – Increase Mather, Minister and Attorney, Massachusetts, 1692.
I think we will be hearing some very interesting evidence when it’s time for the case for the defense. A defense attorney can offer anything he chooses as evidence. If the court doesn’t find it relevant, it can be rejected, but the defense can still offer it. Anything he offers, whether rejected or accepted as evidence, becomes a part of the record – a PUBLIC record. This will be the chance for the defense to present all of its evidence of election fraud. Whether the Senate allows it as evidence or rejects it as irrelevant, the truth will be out – and all a matter of public record.
Let’s not get any hopes up. I don’t believe that any proof of election fraud will be dealt with. Biden is here and won’t be going anywhere for at least four years unless he dies. God forbid that should happen and I mean it! If he should die in office, Kamala Harris will become president 47. If I had to choose between her and Biden I’ll take Biden any day. He’s a senile old goat who probably can’t even remember what he had for breakfast this morning, but Harris is much younger and in perfect health both mentally and physically. If she gets into the Oval Office then we’re truly up shit creek without a plunger.
The fact is we’re going to have to let this farce play out to see what will ultimately happen. Does Trump have a bomb to drop on the Senate? We’ll just have to wait and see.
