District attorneys now have so much influence on grand juries that “by and large” they could get them to “indict a ham sandwich.” -Sol Wachtler, Chief Judge of New York State, 1985
The Grand Jury
A grand jury case is presented by a prosecutor representing “the People”, citing only the evidence that he believes he can use to gain a conviction in a court of law. That’s why grand jury indictments are considered almost automatic once sought…and why the refusal of St Louis County grand jury to indict Officer Darren Wilson of Ferguson was so rare.
This grand jury offer will be too.
People v People of the United States
What we are seeing today is an attempt by the combined American media, Democrat Party, and (if you read The Guardian) the worldwide Left, to indict not only Donald Trump, but the People of the United States, who elected him.
And, if you haven’t already noticed, as in all grand jury proceedings, neither President Trump nor the People of the United States are represented.
The objective of the Democrat-Media alliance is to not only obtain an indictment through public opinion in such a way they can gain an impeachment against President Donald Trump, but in such a convincing manner that the People of the United States will meekly accept the impeachment and will meekly return to the place that was always reserved for them by the Left before their unfortunate meddling in the election in November.
In that way, the people of the United States will not be able to find the wherewithal to rise up and hang the whole goddam lot of them, which, if I were a Democrat, I would strongly take into consideration.
So, 1) They don’t want Trump’s impeachment to appear like a coup, and
2) They don’t want to end up like Jake Spoon.
Of course, to create a safe distance of separation between itself and the people of the United States, the Democrat-Media Alliance will once again ask select members of the Republican Party to stand in the breach, if for no other reason than to get a sense of the strength of that first wave of public reaction.
Consider the math that confronts:
A v0te of impeachment by the US House of Representatives is in effect the sought-after grand jury indictment. It requires only a majority vote, which means a minimum vote of 216-214 (with 4 current vacancies). This means that, today, 24 Republicans would have to vote to impeach Trump (assuming none of the Democrats are already seeing Jake Spoon nooses at their own district town halls, which by summer, 2018, they may well see).
Now, flipping 24 Republicans is an insurmountable ambition IF the GOP Members are responding to the voices of the majority of their voters. Even the arch-enemy Media admits that at least a third of the GOP voter base are stout, unbendable Trumpians. (I think more, but that’s for them to find out the hard way.)
The same goes for the Senate, where two-thirds (or 67) must then convict the president at trial in order to remove Trump from office. This means the Democrats must sway 19 Republican senators, also subject to change in 2018, where the Democrats appear vulnerable. Most of us can count only six or seven wobbly GOP senators. A tall order, indeed.
If, HOWEVER, House and Senate members are listening to their donors, and in some case their own demons and vanities (e.g. John McCain, who would likely convict a ham sandwich if its initials were DJT,), but also to the daily surreal machine-gun fire fake news, fake anonymous sources, fake tapes, such as associated with the recent firing of FBI director, James Comey, they may find cover for what they are already predisposed to want to do.
But 19? Who can say?
Especially in the Senate where establishment status can take on an almost hereditary glow of nobility, and some genuinely believe there is an entitlement associated with their seat, and one which is not accorded more ordinary men and women “in the trades”, you can understand why they may actually hate Donald Trump as both a pretender and a threat, a usurper to something that is exclusively theirs.
But lastly, unlike Congressmen, they haven’t really feared the people of their states in a lifetime[…]
