Nancy Pelosi marched out her hand picked prosecutors today for all to see. She named Reps. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.), Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.), Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.), Jason Crow (D-Colo.), Val Demings (D-Fla.) and Sylvia Garcia (D-Texas) as managers. Nancy Pelosi stated at the beginning of this event “What is at stake here is the Constitution of the United States. This is what an impeachment is about”. This was just the first of many lies and half truths fed to the American public during this presentation.
Leading this ragtag team will be Adam Schiff, a toxic partisan that has been saying for over 3 years that the President was put in office by Vlad Putin, and that he had definitive proof of this, in spite of the Mueller investigation spending over $25 million dollars investigating that and finding absolutely nothing. Schiff did not dissapoint, he stated that the evidence was incontrovertible and damning, even though that is not the case. He also stated that the President cheated in the 2016 election, using Russians to get elected and now is attempting to use Ukrainians to cheat in the 2020 election, and this is why impeachment is so important now, because we cannot have foreign powers impede free and fair elections any more!
He went on to attempt to make the case that witnesses have to be called in the Senate trial, even though there is not constitutional imperative to do so. In fact, the House is constitutionally directed to interview all witnesses and to then make a case for impeachment if one is to be had. Then it is their duty to present their case to the Senate, the jury, to make a decision. Since they did not interview any witnesses that would actually help them make a case for impeachment, Schiff and his minions are insisting that the Senate do their job for them, in effect to search for the crime to impeach the President, since they did not do so when they had their hearings.
Every one of the other impeachment prosecutors mouthed the same words as Schiff, and Nancy Pelosi did the same. They are bringing impeachment to the Senate without a crime, and expecting Senators to do the job for them. Ultimately this will fail, and they will have egg on their faces. Their hope of sullying the reputation of the President, making a case not to vote for him in 2020 is going to backfire, and most likely they are simply helping him to be re-elected with a landslide.
Pelosi knew this would happen, and advised against this move. The radical left in her coalition would not listen, and they insisted on impeaching the President, even if they had no evidence to do so. You could see on Nancy’s face that she was not happy with their decision, but she felt she needed to go along with them even though she knew it would lead to failure. The expression on her face looked as though she was marching to the gallows.
The Democrats have opened up a pandora’s box, one that will lead to the destruction of the “separation of powers” and neutering the office of the President. They have set a precedent for impeachment to be used simply as a political tool, and unfortunately it will be used again and again, to the detriment of our Republic.
Meanwhile, the President has another big political victory! He is signing phase 1 of the China Trade Deal! He is moving forward in spite of the Democrats voting along party lines to approve the articles of impeachment. These Democrats should be ashamed, but instead they are blinded with hatred for the President. They will have their own day in court with the 2020 election. That will be when the people decide on their fates, and I would not put money on them keeping the House or beating Donald Trump at the polls. That will be when the American people will decide who will lead them and who will represent them, as it was always meant to be.
