As promised more about the impeachment. The good thing about being lazy is Beetle will say all the important stuff.
She destroyed the case against her. Knowing the JRPs can be helpful.
This is nothing against Ben, but his testimony was stricken from the record. I don’t remember why exactly, just that it had the effect of him never actually being there.
He has been known to lie to the Judicial Council before. Now he used his chance to play fast and lose with the truth in front of the Senate.
He could not name any of the four senators who filed the charge sheet with him, did not know how long Banerjee had been a justice, nor when she became chair. Aside from at least vaguely knowing some of this from deciding to impeach Chair Banerjee, if Garcia paid attention to the trial he sat through as a juror he would have gotten the answer to all of these questions.
He stood up to the Student Action backed impeachment voting.
Sonya ripped apart the case against her. I don’t see the reasoning anyone could have for voting for impeachment other then political revenge. I have been following all the ASUC cases since the beginning and I was actually at a couple of the hearings, and I don’t remember seeing any of the senators at the J-council hearings.
It was fun to see people who had no connection to the case watch the proceedings. One of their blogs with commentary is here. Even these outside observers could see the stupidity of the SA voting block.
