My fellow Americans, January 30, 2020, is a date that will live in infamy, Republicans in the senate maliciously and deliberately betrayed the American people.
In an act that was so outrageous it defied comprehension, Republicans with malice and foresight destroyed our constitution and our democracy.
It was Ben Franklin that, when asked, “What have we created,” replied “a Republic, if we can keep it.” Well fellow citizens, we have lost that republic.
No longer does the government fear the people. Instead, the people must now fear the government.
Senate Republicans, by rejecting witnesses at the Senate trial and by attacking heroes that testified in the House of Representatives such as Gordon Sondland, Fiona hill and Lt. Col. Vindman, a wounded veteran, have shown the American people that they no longer work for them, but instead, they work for a foreign government and a traitorous, corrupt president.
They have shown the people that a president or any official elected to the federal government is above the law and need not be held accountable for their crimes.
This was a sad day for America. We can only hope that we can begin to heal and regain our democracy in November 2020.
