After the U.S. House voted along party lines to impeach the U.S. President Donald Trump, headlines blared and pundits crowed about the news. But now what?
It is all but certain that Trump will be acquitted by the U.S. Senate and the case essentially dismissed. While history books will know that Trump was impeached, beyond that it will mean next to nothing for he will not be removed from office.
WIthout that, there is nothing. To men like him, “impeachment” is just a word: a nasty word, according to him. The Constitution? Just a scrap of paper. What matters is power, nothing else matters.
From imprisoned nation, this is Mumia Abu-Jamal.
