TO IMPEACH OR NOT TO CONVICT, THE QUESTION

Written by Halli Casser-Jayne on . Posted in HC-J Blog

To impeach or not to convict that is the question. And are there any noble minds left in the Republican Party? Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show with Halli’s partner in politics former White House correspondent Matthew Cooper, where the two political pundits slice and dice all things politics and some days, Donald Trump. To keep the Shakespeare metaphor going: To err is human, for the president of the United States to commit bribery, extortion and obstruction of justice – treason, high crimes and misdemeanors – and get away with it in normal times would be unforgiveable. But there is nothing normal about these times. Weeks of hearings, hours of testimony, exactly where are we on the impeachment train?

To impeach or not

All the world’s a stage, and those who testified in House Intelligence Committee and Chair Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) impeachment hearings certainly were some interesting players. From the somewhat naive Russian immigrant, turned Purple Heart recipient, U.S. Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the director of European affairs for the National Security Council to the everybody loves a kidder who has a million dollars to buy himself an Ambassadorship, and a fifty grand watch to flaunt, Ambassador Gordon Sondland, to the steely Dr. Fiona Hill, former Russia expert for the National Security Council with the polite English accent and a glance that could cut big mouth Rep. Jim Jordan in two, it was quite the play to watch in Washingto, D.C. But that’s not all, On another stage in Georgia the Democrats held yet another debate. And in the Middle East theater, the longest standing Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, was indicted on counts of bribery, fraud, and Breach of Trust. Netanyahu called it a “coup.” One wonders where he got that word. Duh.

The Schiff Show

How did we get here? Are you tired of hearing about a quid pro quo? Does bribery work better for you? Nancy Pelosi thinks it’s a more apt description of Donald Trump’s ‘transgressions.’ The Republicans are demanding to hear from the whistleblower, but at this point, why?

In some ways watching the hearing was like reading an Agatha Christie novel. What a cast of characters! Central casting couldn’t have picked a better man to play the role of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, George Kent, with his bow tie and matching pocket square, a dapper man he is. And Ambassador Bill Taylor, currently the top US diplomat in Ukraine with the astonishing voice and courtly delivery. Compare the two diplomats to the undiplomatic Republican members of the committee: the uncouth, jacketless Rep. Jim Jordan, Rep. John Ratcliffe, who never seems to measure up to his own hype, Rep. Mike Turner who has some morality issues not dissimilar to Trump’s, and the Republican’s moll with the big mouth, Rep. Elise Stefanik. And we’re just beginning.

Tune in for an informative and fun political podcast. This week, it’s The Schiff Show on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show with Matthew Cooper this the podcast always available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com, on all your favorite apps, and on your Alexa device, too.
