The start of Donald Trump Impeachment 2 on 9 February0 at the US. Capitol – the site of the deadly uprising from Jan. The January 1st that sparked current action against the former president – was a mixture of deep and embarrassing Jamie Raskin’s heartbreaking personal account of the attack, which occurred the day after his late son Tommy’s funeral, was immensely moving during Bruce Castor’s performance and David Schoen, Trump’s legal team, was in a clown car accident

The appearance of Joe Neguse, the representative of the 2nd As a senior lieutenant in chief impeachment manager Raskin and a trained attorney, Neguse was tasked with countering highly flimsy claims that Trump could not be tried by the U. Senate because he had already resigned. And by the end of Neguse’s presentation, one thing was perfectly clear: a new national political star had been born

Neguse’s story, which he told us in a detailed interview before his election in 2018, is undoubtedly convincing.His East African parents came to America as refugees and worked tirelessly to enable their son to have a better life – and he seized it University of Colorado Boulder, where he completed his law degree, he was president of the co-student body under the school’s three-executive system (the organization is a breeding ground for future politicians, including Colorado Representative Leslie Herod, and Senator Steve Fenberg) and later served as regent for the institution.He also co-founded New Era Colorado, an advocacy group for young voters – and while unable to become Colorado’s secretary of state in 2014, he was ready, willing, and able to act as Jared Polis, his predecessor in the 2nd District, decided to run for governor. Neguse’s victory in 2018 made him the first African-American member of Congress from Colorado since the state was founded in 1876

Upon his arrival in Washington, DC.Neguse quickly established itself as a legislator, as this report of his first 100 days in office in April 2019 makes clear.But yesterday’s hearing was his coming-out party at the national level.Here’s a clip that shows what he did with it:

Instead of a cheap dramatic stance or histrionics, Neguse opted for a more measured tone, but modulated it like a maestro. With astonishing clarity, he explained the legal precedents which made it clear that the founders of the republic viewed impeachment as an instrument against individuals , regardless of whether they were still in office or had resigned to avoid further sanctions. Much of the material was complex, but he didn’t do it stupidly. Instead, he cut down on the essentials and put it in terms that exclude the The slightest hint of condescension was easy to understand

His efforts went well beyond a lecture in fact, he was able to transition seamlessly from professorship to passion, while at the same time demonstrating a savage intelligence and a heartfelt motivational spirit that went well beyond mere partiality. ‘ / p>

In his minutes at the microphone, Neguse turned his heads on both sides of the aisle – and as the process is now seriously progressing, he will have more opportunities to establish his brand

Granted, the likelihood of enough Republicans voting to convict Trump is slim, but Neguse won’t be hurt should the ex-president escape a lifetime ban on running for federal office, at the end of the process he won’t just get in Colorado, but recognized nationwide as one of the Democratic Party’s freshest new faces February 2021
