The dishonesty of @RandPaul Calabresi @FedSoc @DailyCaller is just astonishing. The opening words of the 6th Amendment are "In all criminal prosecutions..." Calabresi plays an amazing game of bait-and-switch. He starts off with saying impeachment is a "legal proceeding" as if...
@RandPaul @FedSoc @DailyCaller 2...that means something under law in terms of due process rights. Then he jumps back & forth between "criminal proceeding" & "impeachment"- in other words, he knows EXACTLY what he is doing, manipulating language so that the uninformed can't tell he is lying...
@RandPaul @FedSoc
@RandPaul @FedSoc @DailyCaller 3...but the dishonesty is so much more here. Assuming for a moment that an impeachment proceeding is a criminal investigation (which it's not) Even under that scenario *none of these rights apply.* The *trial* is in the Senate. The equivalent of the *indictment* is in the House..
@RandPaul @FedSoc @DailyCaller 4...IF impeachment is a criminal investigation, the *sole* right that exists under statute that applies here would be that Trump - and Trump alone - has the right to appear before the "grand jury" (In other words, the House committee.) And even that is a stretch. If @FedSoc...
@RandPaul @FedSoc @DailyCaller 5...wants to start arguing that due process rights of confronting witnesses, testimony, legal representation, speedy "trial" all apply to grand jury proceedings, well - there is nothing in the law or constitution supporting that, but let them make the argument. Then they have...
@RandPaul @FedSoc @DailyCaller accept that all people facing criminal investigation have the right to sit in on grand juries to listen to testimony, cross-examine witnesses, present their own witnesses etc. But that might apply to - you know - poor people and minorities. So @FedSoc will push back....
@RandPaul @FedSoc @DailyCaller 7...on that. Why don't you liars just make the argument you are really making? "The law does not apply to rich, white Republicans. We have a different Constitution, involving whatever crap we want to make up so long as it fools the uninformed."

You people are disgusting.
