It appears that the House Democrat Impeachment Managers are through with their initial presentation, capped off by House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler waddling to the microphone and admonishing the Senators before him, “any Senator who votes to deny a witness, who votes to deny evidence, is voting to cover up the president's crimes and subversion of the Constitution.”
There is no doubt in anyone's mind that military aid for Ukraine was delayed but ultimately delivered before the deadline for the delivery. Likewise, there is no doubt that the President suggested that Ukrainian authorities investigate Burisma, the corrupt gas company that employed Hunter Biden, the Vice President's son. These two actions are indisputable facts, likewise, they are indisputably within the President's plenary powers and therefore do not constitute an impeachable offense.
Moreover, the President has the right to question the validity of subpoenas, exert executive privilege over testimony and documents, and the right to seek judicial review. These also are not impeachable offenses.
The two articles of impeachment, Abuse of Power and Obstruction of Congress, are so broad and so vague as to be utterly meaningless -- definitely what the framers of the Constitution warned about when they spoke of partisan factions subverting the impeachment process.
Is this the best the House Democrats can do after three years and tens of millions of wasted taxpayer dollars?
And, they want a “mulligan” – a do-over to desperately search for meaningful evidence in the testimony and documents of the witnesses they should have called in any legitimate impeachment inquiry. Not the sham inquiry proclaimed by the Speaker of the House, Queen Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco, and conducted in the basement of Congress.
The facts are defined by what President Trump said and the actions he took, not the opinion of those facts by rank partisans who hate the president, and even worse, hate the Constitution and their country.
What we have witnessed is little more than “Impeachment by Opinion” based on nothing more substantial than redefining the U.S. Constitution by considering the “meaning of the moment.” A purely political ploy conditioned by the reality that the corrupt Democrats have nothing to offer America and all Americans other than corruption and communism wrapped up in a bright red progressive bow. No matter how they redefine their political ideology, it leads to bigger government, higher taxes, a reduced standard of living, totalitarianism, fewer personal freedoms and choices – and the type of wealth redistribution necessary to keep the ignorant masses voting against themselves.
The actual abuse of power resides with the Democrats who have attempted to nullify the results of a national election and remove a constitutional officer from office. They have perpetrated a fraud on the American people and should be held accountable for their actions.
I can only pray that my fellow citizens wake up in time to remedy the situation, even if it means giving a temporary pass to the evildoers who are using their positions of power to further their own agenda and political ideology.
Strange as it may seem, it is likely that President Trump will be judged among the best presidents of the modern era and former president Barack Obama among the worst by historians.
We are so screwed.
