It’s impossible to comprehend the exact purposes for Democrats’ impeachment of Donald Trump. There is certainly no reasonable purpose for doing so. Yet they continue to pile on with allegation after allegation, witness after witness. They claim that each piece of “evidence” and each witness bring factual proof that President Trump committed impeachable offenses.
House prosecutors over the weekend released the 111-page summary of “evidence” with which they expect the Senate to use to remove Donald Trump from office. In doing so, the ridiculousness of this is illustrated best in this first paragraph of the summary of their impeachment plan:
“President Donald J. Trump used his official powers to pressure a foreign government to interfere in a United States election for his political gain, and then attempted to cover up his scheme by obstructing Congress’s investigation into his misconduct. The Constitution provides a remedy when the President commits such serious abuses of his office: impeachment and removal. The Senate must use that remedy now to safeguard the 2020 U.S. election, protect our constitutional form of government, and eliminate the threat that the President poses to America’s national security.”
Honestly, I am past tired of having to address over and over their ridiculous claims and assertions. Mr. Trump did NOT use his powers to pressure a foreign government to do anything. He didn’t pressure Ukraine in any way. And Democrats’ witnesses before the House Judiciary committee each stated clearly when asked that Donald Trump did NOT commit any impeachable offense. None gave ANY evidence of ANY impeachable wrongdoing by the President.
Steny Hoyer — Nancy Pelosi’s #2 in the House — said this about the impeachment inquiry last month by remarking that Trump was afforded “every opportunity to prove his innocence. Instead, he ignored Congressional subpoenas for documents and testimony by White House officials and ordered his subordinates not to cooperate. This itself is unprecedented,” Hoyer claimed.
First, ignoring Congressional subpoenas by a President is anything but unprecedented. It has happened hundreds of times in the past. EVERY president has exerted executive privilege as a reason for not providing subpoenaed documents and testimony.
Secondly, when I heard Hoyer say that the President was provided “every opportunity” to prove his innocence, I did a double-take. Yes, I have felt personally for a long time that Democrats don’t want only to handpick specific laws that are OK for which law enforcement to ignore enforcement, but Democrats want the entire U.S. Justice System blown up. They indict members of law enforcement who DO enforce laws that Democrats don’t like.
There are many ironies in what Hoyer stated when he said that reveal what’s far more profound in the Democrat Party platform of today. Do you find yourself ever questioning what the Democrat Platform is for 2020? I don’t know for sure. But in light of much of what Dems are doing and attempting to do in D.C. and what they are pushing nationally, I have some ideas. Let’s take a quick look:
- They refuse to find ways to pass immigration laws that stop illegal entries into the U.S.
- They take action in court again and again against executive orders issued by Mr. Trump regarding enforcement of border laws he does try to curtail the lawlessness Dems promote.
- They refused twice to accept proposed legislation by the Trump Administration to give DACA recipients temporary legal status and then a path to citizenship. Why? Because the provision included funding of a wall to close the southern border.
- They refuse to join in any action to shore up America’s election system by mandating voter ID for voters. Further, in every state that has passed any voter ID laws, they take those states to court to block.
- Year after year, Democrat leadership have turned their backs on the enforcement of laws protecting America’s young men and women from sex and drug traffickers. Until the Trump Administration and this Department of Justice, the implementation of such laws was non-existent. In Trump’s three years, more than 100,000 have been brought to justice, and 500,000 young Americans were saved from sex traffickers.
- Drug laws. There are federal laws against the sale of illegal drugs and those who sell them. Obama’s DOJ was instructed by the White House not to enforce those laws. They didn’t. This White House says: “You don’t like existing drug laws that you passed, change the laws!”
These are just a few of the hundreds of examples of the trampling of the Rule of Law that came with our forefathers from Europe and which is the bedrock of the most exceptional justice system on Earth.
Their justice methodology? “We’ll tell you which laws to enforce, which to ignore, and who can and cannot be held to the enforcement of each of those laws.”
Back to Impeachment
So with the grandeur of a British royal reception, Senate Democrats welcomed Speaker Pelosi, Rep. Adam Schiff, and others at the end of the long trek from the House to the Senate carrying their two articles of impeachment for the Senate trial to use this week.
What can we expect?
At the end of this article, we have posted a .pdf of the 111-page summary by the House prosecutors of their case against Mr. Trump. Feel free to download it and read it at your leisure. If you’re honest and trust the Constitution, you’ll do nothing but shake your head in disgust. Not surprisingly, there is NOTHING it contains that has anything to do with collusion, violation of the emoluments clause, obstruction of justice, Quid pro Quo, bribery, or any other “High Crime or Misdemeanor.” Each of these has been the charges levied against POTUS by Democrats they said he committed, and they would use to impeach. NONE WERE FOUND, AND NONE ARE INCLUDED IN THE ARTICLES.
But there’s plenty of hatred, anger, disgust, lies, misquotes, and LACK OF EVIDENCE.
You’ll note, they’ve stopped talking about Mr. Trump’s collusion that changed the outcome of the 2016 election. They now want the Senate to remove the President from office for what “he might do to impact the 2020 election.” How ironic is that!
The irony? The FBI warned former President Obama several years before the 2016 election that the Russians and other bad actors were working diligently to hack into our election system. Yet, no one in the Obama DOJ reached out to any of the 50 states to warn them of “credible threats” against our election system.
After the 2016 election, acting AG Rod Rosenstein stated there was no election hacking that was successful or changed even one vote in the 2016 election.
Now Democrats want to spit in the faces of 63 million Americans who, in a democratic election, chose for Donald Trump to be President. And they’re attempting that with not a single shred of evidence of a Trump impeachable offense.
Watch/Listen to this summary of what House Democrat Prosectors gave as justification for doing so:
Oddly, Nancy Pelosi ordered gold pens to use in her ceremonial signing of the articles of impeachment before turning them over to the Senate — real gold pens for which American taxpayers paid. Speaker Pelosi has demeaned President Trump since the inception of his campaign and daily since. She’s called him every name in the book.
Many Americans and I doubt that she, as she claims, prays for the President every day. I cannot weigh in on that. I don’t know her heart. But her actions and words speak highly about her disdain for Donald Trump.
I’ll finish by pointing out this one irony: do you know how many pens Speaker Pelosi ordered and used in that ceremony and then gave away? Thirty: thirty gold pens. That sounds eerily like “thirty pieces of silver” Judas received for selling-out Jesus.
Irony? Pelosi used and gave away gold pens. Judas only got silver. Pelosi had to one-up even Judas.
