As the Impeachment Continues

The defense rested. 

The question still on the table is do the President's actions meet the threshold for removal from office? Despite their assertions that the President did nothing wrong, questions remain. And, despite the assertions to the contrary, if the President did do something wrong do the transgressions meet the threshold for impeachment and removal from office. 

I have been fully interested in the entire proceedings and how the case has progressed. Moving into the next two days of questioning the next steps in the process are becoming clearer. 

I find that the process has been a fascinating and instructive look into the deepest workings of our government. 

Despite that the final outcome is almost assured, the journey to the completion of the impeachment is critical.

Observation: Did anyone else notice that the Chief Justice asks everyone to recite the "Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag" at the beginning of the session? It is not a pledge to the flag--it is the Pledge of Allegiance. The first line is about pledging allegiance to both the flag and the Republic for which it stands.
