What's Truth Got to Do with It? Schumer on Impeachment

Timothy Birdnow

The Founding Fathers -- whose wisdom just knocks my socks off every day, it really does -- set this process up to be in the Senate, not at the Supreme Court, not in some judicial body."

"Every day, for instance, hundreds of people call us up and lobby us on one side and the other. You can't do that with a juror, The standard is different. It's supposed to be a little bit judicial and a little bit legislative-political. That's how it's been."

Charles Schumer to Tim Russert on Meet the Press, January 1999.

"This is not a criminal trial, but this is something that the Founding Fathers decided to put in a body that was susceptible to the whims of politics.""So therefore, anybody taking an oath tomorrow can have a pre-opinion; it's not a jury box,"

Chuck Schumer to Larry King, also January 1999

3 I flunked "Mind Reading 101" in college, so I no longer try to assert what people are thinking. These people are not only reading minds, they are reading the minds of people who have been dead for two hundred years. They are either stupid or insane. Possibly both.
