Recusals

If the impeachment trial moves to the Senate, should those Democrats running for President recuse themselves?

They do have a conflict of interest, and can not be impartial.

And, voting to convict would be for their personal gain.

What should they do?

Should anyone already on record saying they won't be impartial or stating their verdict be forced to recuse themselves? I know this also means McConnell, but fair is fair. Though it would reduce the Senate to about 5 people.

 

Every one of them will say they were just joking about any comments made. The world needs to go back to the days of "Silence can't be misquoted".

Saying you won't be impartial is one thing.

But, having motivation to do so adds weight to the statement.

No doubt those Senators running for President voting to convict have personal gain to consider, and this is what the whole farce stems from, political acts for personal gain.

It doesn't get much more personal gainey than convicting your biggest opponent.

I say they should recuse.

I could go along with that.

Make them listen to the whole thing, then when time to vote, tell them to siddown and shatup, they get no vote unless they want to be impeached for committing political acts for personal gain.
