Wait…what is happening now!?

Some of you may know the story of Democrat Rep. Alcee Hastings (FL), but there’s a decent chance that most don’t. Before being elected as a Congressman, Hastings was a federal judge.

Alcee accepted a bribe. He was subsequently impeached and removed from office. It begs the question, how in the world did the public trust this man enough to then elect him to public office? Craziness.

In 1998, Hastings voted against impeaching President Bill Clinton. Go figure. Now, Dems have tasked Alcee with basically setting the rules for the impeachment of President Trump.

Here’s something you don’t see every day: Alcee Hastings, a former federal judge impeached and removed from the bench for taking bribes, participating in a House hearing that sets the rules for an impeachment. (Yes, Florida man strikes again…)

Here’s the historical document, from the Senate:

In 1981, a federal grand jury indicted Judge Alcee L. Hastings, appointed to the federal district court in 1979, along with his friend William A. Borders, a Washington, D.C. lawyer. Hastings was charged with conspiracy and obstruction of justice for soliciting a $150,000 bribe in return for reducing the sentences of two mob-connected felons convicted in Hastings’ court. A year after Borders was convicted of conspiracy, the result of an FBI sting effort, Hastings’s case came before the criminal court. Despite Borders’ conviction, and the fact that Hastings had indeed reduced the sentences of the two felons, he was acquitted in a criminal court in 1983 and returned to his judicial post.

Subsequently, suspicions arose that Hastings had lied and falsified evidence during the trial in order to obtain an acquittal. A special committee of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals began a new probe into the Hastings case. The resulting three-year investigation ended with the panel concluding that Hastings did indeed commit perjury, tamper with evidence, and conspire to gain financially by accepting bribes. The panel recommended further action to the U.S. Judicial Conference, which, in turn, informed the House of Representatives on March 17, 1987, that Judge Alcee Hastings should be impeached and removed from office.

Continued:

The trial committee presented its report on October 2, 1989. Sixteen days later, the trial began in the U.S. Senate, with prosecution and defense given two hours to summarize their cases. The Senate deliberated in closed session on October 19, 1989. The following day, the Senate voted on 11 of the 17 articles of impeachment, convicting Hastings, by the necessary two-thirds vote, on 8 articles (1-5, 7-9). On two articles (6, 17) the vote fell short of the required majority to convict. On article 11, the Senate voted 95 not guilty to 0 guilty. Having achieved the necessary majority vote to convict on 8 articles, the Senate’s president pro tempore (Robert C. Byrd) ordered Hastings removed from office. The Senate did not vote to disqualify him from holding future office.

Breonna Taylor Protesters Aim Guns At Cops, Two Officers Shot & Transported to Hospital

They are out of control!

It seems like this happens once a year, doesn’t it? A black person is killed by the police and radical Democrats decide to riot, loot, and intentionally injure police officers. It doesn’t matter in the slightest if the black person was in the wrong. You know, because liberals solely care about race above all else. On Wednesday evening in Kentucky, at least two cops were shot and transported to a hospital. This could be a preview of what we’re likely to witness if President Trump is re-elected.

Rush: Judiciary Committee Needs to Skip Hearings, Go Straight to Floor Vote On SCOTUS Nominee

He has a point!

Considering how unbelievably evil Democrats acted toward Brett Kavanaugh, there’s little reason to assume they’ll give a pass to President Trump’s third Supreme Court nominee. Congressional Dems literally – literally – did everything in their power to ruin a man’s life, simply because they hate POTUS. The Man With the Nicotine-Stained Fingers makes an excellent point about this upcoming SCOTUS pick. Congressional Republicans, take note. From The Hill: Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh urged Senate Republicans to skip the confirmation hearing process for President Trump’s soon-to-be announced Supreme Court nominee and head straight to a floor vote. “I want the Judiciary Committee — that could be great if it were skipped,” Limbaugh said Monday on his daily radio program. “We don’t need to open that up for whatever length of time, so that whoever this nominee is can be Kavanaugh’d, or Borked, or Thomas’d. Because that’s what it’s going to be, especially when it’s not even required.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/mmfa/status/1308100957390151683?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1308100957390151683%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fthehill.com%2Fhomenews%2Fmedia%2F517408-rush-limbaugh-encourages-senate-to-skip-hearings-for-trumps-scotus-nominee Here are the hypocritical tweets of Democrats from 2016 and 2020… https://twitter.com/DrewHolden360/status/1307414713098268673?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1307414713098268673%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fthe-real-flip-flops-this-devastating-twitter-thread-reveals-democrat-duplicity-on-scotus%2F https://twitter.com/DrewHolden360/status/1307414725559545859?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1307414725559545859%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fthe-real-flip-flops-this-devastating-twitter-thread-reveals-democrat-duplicity-on-scotus%2F https://twitter.com/DrewHolden360/status/1307414743381139457?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1307414743381139457%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fthe-real-flip-flops-this-devastating-twitter-thread-reveals-democrat-duplicity-on-scotus%2F https://twitter.com/DrewHolden360/status/1307414820711542790?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1307414820711542790%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fthe-real-flip-flops-this-devastating-twitter-thread-reveals-democrat-duplicity-on-scotus%2F https://twitter.com/DrewHolden360/status/1307414809349173250?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1307414809349173250%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fthe-real-flip-flops-this-devastating-twitter-thread-reveals-democrat-duplicity-on-scotus%2F https://twitter.com/DrewHolden360/status/1307414731687366657?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1307414731687366657%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fthe-real-flip-flops-this-devastating-twitter-thread-reveals-democrat-duplicity-on-scotus%2F https://twitter.com/DrewHolden360/status/1307414785240240132?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1307414785240240132%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fthe-real-flip-flops-this-devastating-twitter-thread-reveals-democrat-duplicity-on-scotus%2F https://twitter.com/DrewHolden360/status/1307414737802735618?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1307414737802735618%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fthe-real-flip-flops-this-devastating-twitter-thread-reveals-democrat-duplicity-on-scotus%2F
