Senate to exonerate Trump

The Senate impeachment trial is nearly over. The whole thing was profoundly unAmerican, because:

* secret House hearings
* anonymous accusers
* contrary to rule of law
* trying to make the President subservient to the Deep State
* Jews ran the show, based on Jewish values
* protection of Biden corruption

Rule of Law is embodied in several parts of the Constitution, such as "No Bill of Attainder or ex post facto Law shall be passed". This means that Congress cannot just invent new crimes on the fly, and retroactively prosecute violators. While Schiff wanted to charge Trump with bribery and other crimes, he ultimately concluded that there was no evidence of any criminal violation.

"No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court." There are no witnesses to any overt bad act by Trump.

"in all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right…to be confronted with the witnesses against him." No, Trump never got the chance to cross-examine the witnesses.

By the House refusing to subpoena relevant witnesses, and then stalling for a month, it became that the whole thing was just a Democrat publicity stunt.

Update: The Senate voted 51-49 not to call additional witnesses. This seems correct to me, as Schiff argued that no relevant facts were in dispute.
