Commentary:
AND SO... HERE WE ARE
Notes on the eve of the Impeachment
Trial of President Trump

by RICHARD E. BERG-ANDERSSON
TheGreenPapers.com Staff

As to the power of [The Senate] trying impeachments, let Mr. Mason show where the power could more properly have been placed. It is a necessary power in every free government, since even Judges of the Supreme Court of Judicature themselves may require a trial, and other public officers might have too much influence before an ordinary and common Court. And what probability is there that such a Court acting in so solemn a manner, should abuse its power (especially as it is wisely provided that their sentences shall extend only to removal from office and incapacitation) more than any other Court? The argument as to the possible abuse of power ....

Mission Statement

Welcome! This site is dedicated to the dissemination of facts, figures, tidbits and commentary- in fact, information of many different kinds- related (primarily) to the American political process. We sincerely hope you very easily find the kind of information you are looking for here, perhaps even information- all gathered here in one place- you might not so easily find anywhere else.


 
Presidential Primaries, Caucuses, and Conventions (these pages contain a combination of preliminary, unofficial, and estimated data)
The "soft" delegate count is this website's estimate of the potential delegate support for each contender based on key delegate selection events already held and is subject to change as we get closer to the National Conventions. The "hard" count is the tabulation of delegates formally pledged or bound by law and/or Party rules. In order for a Democratic Presidential candidate to be nominated, either a majority of pledged delegate votes must support a single candidate on the first ballot or, a majority of all (pledged and unpledged [aka automatic]) delegate votes must support a single candidate on any ballot.
