Schumer said, “Regarding impeachment, look. Everyone wants to leave this terrible chapter in American history behind. But sweeping it under the rug doesn’t bring any cure. The only way to bring healing is to actually have the accountability that this trial provides. So we’re going to move on with the process. It will be fair, but it will move relatively quickly. “
Fair but fast is definitely the right step. The country has real and immediate problems. The last thing anyone wants is a lengthy impeachment process that puts Trump back in the spotlight while delaying the urgent need for COVID relief.
It would be shocking if this process took longer than two weeks.
The evidence is obvious. Trump’s own words from his speech are visible and audible for everyone.
The best way to unite the country would be to hold Trump accountable and then immediately move on to adopting COVID aid.
Trump will not be brought back into the spotlight as impeachment will not be his platform for a return.
The Senate will do its job and then go back to the real business of helping the American people.
