Letters: Senator Toomey's Comments

Posted

If you had attended Tuesdays with Toomey group’s online rally on Tuesday [Jan. 12] you might have thought twice about quoting the Senator’s comments, critical of the President, without also quoting his wishiest of washiest statements on impeachment. 

“I stand by my statements over the last week regarding President Trump and the role he played in the deadly riot at the Capitol.

“President Trump will be out of office before a Senate impeachment trial can begin. Whether or not the Senate has the constitutional authority to hold an impeachment trial for a president that is no longer in office is debatable. Should the Senate conduct a trial, I will again fulfill my responsibility to consider arguments from both the House managers and President Trump’s lawyers.”

You and your readership has been Toomey’d!
