|Vice President Pence: A Partisan Impeachment, a Profile in Courage|
–The Wall Street Journal
“As the U.S. Senate takes up a purely partisan impeachment, and the mainstream media focuses on what Republican senators may do, it may be timely to consult Kennedy’s definition of political courage and why he considered one statesman in particular worthy of admiration,” Vice President Mike Pence writes. In 1868, it was Republicans who tried to impeach a President they didn’t like on “dubious constitutional grounds.” In what one historian called “the most heroic act in American history,” Sen. Edmund Ross of Kansas ignored political pressure and voted to acquit President Andrew Johnson.
“Who, among the Senate Democrats, will stand up to the passions of their party this time?”

Pelosi’s Impeachment Offenses
–The Wall Street Journal
“The Senate can now do better by the Constitution by holding a trial that judges President Trump without validating the partisan House process and its weak case . . .
