Now is a good time for you and every senator to remember the oath of office you took when elected.
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.
There is a significant legislative item before the Senate that, in the interest of the people, MUST be handled seriously. The House of Representatives has passed impeachment proceedings against our current President and it is the responsibility of the Senate to conduct a PROPER trial and agree on a verdict.
The outcome of a PROPER trial may result in the impeachment of President Trump or it may not. As a citizen of these United States, I can only ask and expect that the trial be executed in an orderly and legal way. However, for the sake of the People, for the sake of honoring the Constitution of the United States and for the sake of honoring the oath of office which you have sworn, DO YOUR DUTY.
I would like to remind you that it is the responsibility of the Congress to protect and legislate for the best interests of the People. For three years, you have abdicated your responsibilities for the sake of supporting the President. You and the Republican majority in the Senate have, in my opinion, failed your constituents by offering your full support to the erratic and self-serving antics of President Trump. FOR GOD’S SAKE, do your job this time.
Frederick J. Iekel
United States Citizen
Please consider adding your name and sharing this open letter to Senator McConnell. If we are to expect the Senate to do its job with regard the impeachment proceedings, we must let them know how we feel. While I have strong feelings as to the appropriate outcome of a trial, I have tried to write this open letter free of bias. I am merely asking the Senate to do its job properly.
