This week is sure to be an interesting week on multiple fronts. There are two big things that we are watching going into this week. The first is the start of the impeachment trial against President Trump. The second is the events that the media and Virginia government has hyped in Richmond. Both events may be interesting.
On the impeachment subject, the battle appears to continue over witnesses. Democrats continue to push for additional impeachment witnesses in the trial, some who were not called during the House investigation. But you would think if the House did their job, no further witnesses would be needed. The Democrats continue to wage the battle in the media over the weekend.
The President’s legal team gave issue with the constitutionality of the articles of impeachment. The battle back and forth has continued, but it’s mostly rhetoric. We know exactly what both sides are saying. There was nothing new provided as part of the battles, but the Democrats insist that it’s still possible with witnesses. Honestly, I think the Senate will refuse to allow the witnesses.
I base this on the fact that Senator Lindsey Graham insists the trial will be over in a couple weeks. Senator Ted Cruz seems a little more reserved, but I do believe that the general consensus is to end the trial as quickly as possible. Certainly the trial will not end this week and we will be watching this for a bit.
Then the Virginia situation is also worth watching. The media has been running with the Virginia gun control legislation for some time. The left will love to pass some form of gun control while Trump is in office. Not just federally but anywhere. This was one of the places they felt they had a chance.
There is a potential for a great crowd on Monday, due to the holiday. Governor Ralph Northam made a state of emergency declaration due to the event. The FAA has closed air space around the capital and the event is carrying a heightened state around it. Our hope is that no violence happens and it’s a clear statement of opposition to the legislation.
We do not need to see any violence. The left has given enough violence in ANTIFA rallies and in other areas across the country. It will be a great situation if we can get through this event without unnecessary arrests or violence. I have my eyes on this event to see how it turns out.
The last thing I’m watching closely is the Democratic primary. I saw this article as I sat down to write about Joe Biden holding his lead in South Carolina. I will be watching for movement as we are in the closing days before the Iowa caucuses. I still expect some movement among the three in the running before Iowa happens. No matter what, this week may sure be interesting!
