My letter to Iowa's Senators

Below is the text to my senators (Ernst and Grassley). This is my 3rd on the impeachment to Ernst.I would recommend to everyone who has a Senator who voted to impeach (rep at the time) or remove (senator) should include the part about witness tampering is considered a more serious felony based on sentencing guidelines than giving false statements under oath. Maybe, if we can put enough pressure on the ones up for re-election they will be forced to allow witnesses.

Senator

There have been numerous reports that the Trump camp has threatened you and other Republican Senators that if you “Vote against the president and your head will be on a pike.” This is a blatant attempt at jury tampering by the President and his minions. This is clearly an abuse of power and a federal felony punishable by up to ten years. This is clearly a high crime that undermines the very nature of the justice system. It is considered to be even more egregious than making false statements under oath, which only has a maximum penalty of 5 years. So any Senator who voted to remove President Clinton for making false statements in a Civil Court deposition ought to vote for the removal of a President who has committed an even more serious “high crime” based on federal sentencing guidelines.

Furthermore, in some states, jury tampering overturns a not guilty and either results in a judge trial with no jury or in others results in an automatic conviction of the top count of the indictment.

Once again, you swore an oath of impartiality for this trial and an oath to defend the Constitution and the laws of this country when you became a Senator. I implore you that you take that oath seriously and live up to it. Based on what you have seen and heard in the trial plus the attempt at jury tampering, any vote other than guilty or for more witness testimony would amount to a whitewash of the charges. I use the term “whitewash” specifically because this is the same kind of sham trial that Klansman and other racist murderous would get when facing charges for killing innocent people or color or their allies. Here the victim is our system of laws, our codes of ethics, and even our Constitution itself.

You MUST call for real witness testimony. Even if it would be 3 hours of Trump in a deposition that only Senators could watch in a secure room. If he doesn’t perjure himself or implicate himself in one or more crimes, then you might be able to vote no to removal. If Bolton, Mulvaney, and others can show how their actions were legal and in the interest of the United States and complied with all US laws (record keeping, honoring subpoenas, disbursement of funds, etc.) then you could vote no on the facts and not a white washed party loyalty.

I hope that you will do what is right and demand witnesses and then issue a verdict based on facts and not ‘whitewash’ a verdict based on criminal threats from the President and his cabal of supporters.
