When the Democrats in the House decided to impeach President Trump, they stacked the deck to overflowing. The entire process was designed to give the Democrats every advantage they could squeeze out of the process. The Republicans on the House intel committee and the Judiciary Committee had absolutely no say in how the process would be run.
The Democrats had complete control of the process…complete control. They were in control and they flaunted their power in the most audacious manner. They turned down every one of the Republicans’ witness request. The Republicans had no subpoena power. They were banned from asking certain questions. They were often cut off during examination of witnesses. In fact it was such a raw display of their power, that the House did not even vote to authorize the impeachment inquiry. The speaker of the House was the one who authorized it by sole decree. The so called whistle blower was not even allowed to testify and witnesses were even forbidden from uttering his name. If they did, they would be held in contempt of Congress.
The Democrats did not follow any of the precedents of the Clinton impeachment, and they just continued to literally make up the rules as they went along, breaching them whenever they felt it served their cause.
The impeachment proceedings in the house were so one sided that the Democrats called 17 witnesses to the republicans 0 witnesses. Just in case anyone is reading this thinks that is an exaggeration, please note that it is not. The Democrats called 17 witnesses, the Republicans 0 witnesses.
Apart from that, of all the witnesses who were called, not one of them had any kind of first hand information to offer the committee about President Trump. Please note again that this is not an exaggeration. Literally none of them had any first hand information to give on President Trump.
When questioned by committee members every single one of the witnesses admitted that they were giving their own personal opinions, or making assumptions.
So after cooking the process to favor the Democrats, after calling their 17 witnesses to the Republicans 0 witnesses, they impeached the President. They then triumphantly declared that the case against the President was water tight. They proclaimed that the evidence was overwhelming. It was an open and shut case that could not be denied. It was incontrovertible. Trump had committed high crimes and misdemeanors.
They had no choice but to impeach the bastard and they had to do it now doggone it! It was imperative that they not delay. It was so important to get it done during the short time frame that they did, that they told the nation they could not afford to await the results of the courts that were going to rule if Trump had to allow his people to testify before Congress, or if his claims of executive privilege were legit, and therefore they did not have to testify. That would take too long, and this was an emergency, so they just went ahead and impeached him for appealing to the courts. For the sake of the Republic they had to do it. It was a national emergency, but then something curious happened on the way to the Senate.
The Democrats’ sense of urgency dissipated and they refused to deliver the articles to the Senate. They held on to them for 28 days, trying to bully the Senate, telling the Senate how to conduct the trial.
After telling everyone that they proved their case beyond the shadow of any doubt, because the evidence was so strong, what did they spend the first day doing? Well, they spent most of the first day demanding that the Senate do the job of the House, and call more witnesses. They proceeded to then lie to the country saying there were no witnesses when in fact they had 17 witnesses, to the Republicans’ and the President’s ZERO witnesses. They needed an 18th witness for their airtight cas that proved beyond the shadow of any doubt that Trump is guilty.
Of course, the sycophantic fake news media was right there alsongside them, cheering them on every step of the way, playing their silly games, and holding not a single Democrat to account for their shenanigans.
What do you say about these people?
