Well, Rep. Loudermilk Just Compared the Impeachment Trial to Jesus' Crucifixion | RELEVANT Magazine https://chrisonet.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/Well-Rep.-Loudermilk-Just-Compared-the-Impeachment-Trial-to-Jesus.jpg

Given the final state of discourse in Washington D.C. right this moment, it was maybe inevitable that somebody would attempt to examine President Donald Trump to Jesus Christ throughout Wednesday’s impeachment vote, however few may have predicted simply how brazen the comparability could be. It got here from Rep. Barry Loudermilk of Georgia, who went earlier than the Home of Representatives to argue that Democrats have been giving Trump an much more crooked trial than Jesus received earlier than he was crucified.

“When Jesus was falsely accused of Treason, Pontius Pilate gave Jesus the opportunity to face his accusers,” Loudermilk stated. “During that sham trial, Pontius Pilate afforded more rights to Jesus, than Democrats have afforded this president in this process.”

Uh …yikes.

Presumably, Loudermilk was speaking concerning the whistleblower who uncovered Trump’s quid professional quo take care of Ukranian officers. That whistleblower has not been formally recognized.

Nonetheless, Trump has refused to cooperate or take part within the probe, and ordered his aides to do the identical. The President could have one other alternative to name his personal witnesses if Republican Senate Majority Chief Mitch McConnell decides to carry his personal trial, although McConnell has indicated that he’ll take my cues from the Presidents attorneys” if he does so.

That’s a bonus Jesus didn’t have at his trial.
