Trump& #8217 ;s Supreme Court Pick Has a Problem with the Constitution
WATCH: President Trump introduces Judge Amy Coney Barrett as his nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court. "She is a woman of unparalleled achievement, towering intellect, sterling credentials and unyielding loyalty to the Constitution."
Donald Trump must be convicted and removed from office. Because he will always choose his own personal interest over our national interest. Because in America, right matters. Truth matters. If not, no Constitution can protect us. If not, we are lost.
I understand why Trump doesn’t want more witnesses testifying. But I can’t understand why my GOP colleagues are enabling his obstruction. Where is their duty to this institution? Where is their duty to the Constitution? Where is their respect for the rule of law?
My Republican colleagues suggest that since Trump's Ukraine scheme failed, since someone blew the whistle and the aid was ultimately released, that it doesn’t really matter if he tried to bribe a foreign power with military aid. The Constitution says otherwise.
We heard that Donald Trump only cares about the big stuff that helps him personally. The question now is — what do we care about? The Constitution? Our oath of office? Or merely our party. In the words of Elijah Cummings: We are better than that.
