My VIP for this week is Lisa Murkowski. I am as surprised as you for her to be my VIP. As you most likely know, Murkowski played a big part in ending the charade known as the impeachment trial for President Donald Trump. I honestly did not know what to expect from her, but I was pleased to know that she was voting against more witnesses.
I was impressed with the reasoning that Murkowski gave for her decision to vote against more witnesses. It showed me that she had put thought into her decision and was not acting like a robot. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised and impressed. This is Murkowski’s statement:
I worked for a fair, honest, and transparent process, modeled after the Clinton trial, to provide ample time for both sides to present their cases, ask thoughtful questions, and determine whether we need more.
I must say that I am pleased with my senior senator for both her vote and her reason, and I feel that I should give credit where credit is due. Murkowski stood for the Constitution and protecting the integrity of the Supreme Court, while addressing her concern that Congress has fallen to a low point. I believe that she voiced the feelings of millions of Americans.
