    Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) called for the recusal of four Democrat presidential candidates from the impeachment process against President Donald Trump on Wednesday after Speaker Nancy Pelosi signed the articles.

    Blackburn said in an emailed statement:

    Tomorrow, one hundred United States Senators will be sworn in to serve in the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump. Four of those Senators must recuse themselves for their unparalleled political interest in seeing this President removed from office.

    These four Democrats, Senators Bennet, Klobuchar, Sanders, and Warren, cannot sit in judgment of the very President they seek to replace. To participate in this trial would be a failure of the oath they took to be an ‘impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws’. Their presidential ambitions prohibit their ability to view this trial through an objective lens.

    In the email sent to her supporters, Blackburn noted:

    In Andrew Johnson’s impeachment trial, an objection was lodged against an Ohio senator who was next in line to become President, if Johnson were removed.

    Honestly, Schiffhead needs to recuse himself, he is a witness and needs to testify as to what he knows about the supposed whistlesucker and when he knew it and when the rule was changed to permit hearsay.....and WE NEED TO HEAR DIRECTLY FROM THIS SUPPOSED WHISTLEBLOWER, ALONG WITH BIDEN AND HIS SPAWN!

    The additional upside of them recusing is that they can then hit the road and campaign against Joe Biden. Their recusal also means that Nancy's ploy of delaying submitting the Articles to the Senate to help Joe Biden didn't work. Recusal is worth a shot.

    I'd rather let them suffer through it then charge Them with the very things they claim Trump did but droped, since they are abusing their power to subvert an opponent during an election, including using a foreign gov't to do so and doing so to manipulate an election, which are charges even Pelosi has to answer to.
    Like I said many times, PELOSI fell into her own trap as any impeachment process going to Senate is clear cut evidence of her involvement in the illegal process & coup. The O.C.E. can't claim insufficient evidence to procede with abuse of power ethics violations on this illegitimate majority congress.

    Interesting. Does Blackburn also argue that Graham, among a whole host of others including McConnell, have already announced their decisions to ignore their oaths to be impartial jurists should recuse themselves?

    Johnson had no VP, that is the difference. The republicans have been up to their stale tricks for so long, that people forget how utterly stupid they are, and some people blindly vote for them.

    You leave out the fact that Benjamin Wade did not recuse himself from the trial.

    I would think no, as what McConnell and Graham have done is openly state their intentions, something that ALL the senators, on both sides, are thinking, but just havent stated vocally.

    Can you imagine a party so hard up that they are trying to fix a nomination for Biden? And Bernie gets screwed by his party once again.
