With the release of the transcript of President Trump’s call to the Ukrainian President, the scheduled appearance of the so-called partisan Whistleblower who allegations are based on hearsay, and the actual complaint from the Inspector General – the President needs to be exonerated and be issued a formal apology by the Democrats in the House of Representatives. The matter was already reviewed by the Department of Justice and no criminal act or impropriety was committed by President Trump.
Nancy Pelosi, who represents a small, uber-liberal district in San Francisco does not speak for the majority of Americans. She speaks for her party, and occasionally, her constituency.
Words: “Therefore, today, I am announcing the House of Representatives is moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry.”
Action: “I am directing our six Committees to proceed with their investigations under that umbrella of impeachment inquiry.”
The LIE: The constitutional requirements to formally initiate an impeachment “inquiry” or investigation require the House of Representatives pass a resolution or bill setting forth the various charges which they believe present a case for impeachment.
The TRUTH: (1) A news conference cannot be substituted for a Bill of Impeachment by the House of Representatives. And political rhetoric, posturing, and allegations are not a legal process.
(2) Nancy Pelosi is clearly violating her oath of office to defend the Constitution by ignoring the long-standing “separation of powers” and usurping President Trump’s constitutional duty to conduct foreign policy and enforce existing U.S. law.
(3) The allegations against former Vice President are not unfounded, unsubstantiated, or uncorroborated. He was videotaped in a public forum blackmailing the President of the Ukraine “quid pro quo” by offering to release $1 billion in U.S. aid if and only if the State Prosecutor investigating allegations of corruption involving a company where Biden and his partner sit on the board of directors – and have zero experience with the Ukraine, the company, or gas-and-oil.
The big deal …
President Trump entered the Office of the Presidency as a wealthy man and will leave office as a wealthy man. However, we should ask ourselves how the Democrats manage to enter their positions poor and emerge fabulously wealthy on their government salaries. Congress does not abide by many of the laws that affect mere mortals such as us. And, until recently, insider trading by Members of Congress did not violate the law as they conveniently exempted themselves from its provisions.
It appears that the the so-called whistleblower wants to remain anonymous -- possibly because they do not have journalist immunity and may have to reveal the sources of their second-hand information -- which could lead to criminal prosecution of all parties involved.
We are so screwed.
