Ep. 130B - Impeachment: Trial by Jury

In today’s podcast we cover the market news, some further Q3 earning’s reports, brief updates to Brexit and the US/China trade talks, and a deeper discussion of the impeachment inquiry.

There is much noise across the political spectrum when it comes to the impeachment inquiry. This makes it incredibly difficult to know where the truth resides. This nation is divided as it has ever been and the lack of leadership from the White House and the Congress is a national disgrace, as neither side wants to rise above the situation. As such, those who admire the President are likely to find their home within Fox News. Meanwhile, those who do not like him or cannot stand the President are likely watching CNN and MSNBC. Again, further dividing the country as people turn into the programs that agree with what they want to hear. This becomes a vicious cycle. It’s important to take a step back and understand that this inquiry at this juncture is akin to a grand jury. Grand juries are secret. So it should not come as a surprise that there are closed door depositions taking place. The next step will be for the House Committees to move to open public hearings once the closed door depositions have been completed. This allows for the general public and all members of the House to hear and weigh the evidence that has come to light. With this information, members of the House can then move forward, if they think it’s warranted, with a vote to bring forth Articles of Impeachment. If this vote should pass, then the President will have been impeached and the trial will take place in the Senate with the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court presiding.

It is currently understood that the Democrats are hoping to have the closed door depositions completed by mid-to-end November. Following this, in our opinion, they must move to public hearings. Otherwise, the credibility of the whole investigation comes into question. The American people have a right to know what has been taking place within its government. Should this move to a trial in the Senate, then this is where the President and his legal defense team can state their case and make their argument. The whole argument that the President and his team should have access to all of the information that is being obtained by the House in their closed door sessions is ridiculous on its face. You do not give the suspect of an investigation information on the investigation about the suspect! You do not let the fox run the hen house. This will certainly be political theater and a circus for the foreseeable future and there will be much more to come.
