The impeachment inquiry into President Trump is an attack on the office of the president and the constitutional fabric of our country.
The Left is at it again. After spending multiple years and millions of taxpayer dollars to investigate Trump’s alleged collusion with Russia, the Left was bruised and confused by the harsh reality that the whole collusion narrative was a farce.
The American people heard pundits and commentators in the media call for Trump’s impeachment before he was even sworn into office. We heard them label Trump a Russian asset and make outlandish claims that all conservatives must be racist, all while sacrificing truth for political gain. Even after Robert Mueller released his report clearing Trump of the phony allegation, Democrats continued to call for Trump’s impeachment and disparage his administration.
Regardless of the findings, the Dems continued their witch-hunt to bring down Trump, and it was only a matter of time before they found something new to be hysterical about.
After the Russia collusion story momentarily ceased, the mainstream media shifted their outcry to a phone call made to the Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelinsky regarding the Biden family and their corrupt business dealings.
On July 25, Trump spoke to Zelinsky. Trump was aware that the call was being recorded, transcribed, and that there were multiple high-ranking officials on the line, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
If Trump was trying to break the law or commit an impeachable offense, then one would have to believe that our president is either clueless or a complete idiot.
Despite Trump’s remarkable transparency with his administration and the American people, the liberal media manufactured a whole new story in yet another attempt to impeach and destroy our president.
Representative Adam Schiff, D‑Calif., released a whistleblower report written by an unknown intelligence officer that claims Trump “is using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country in the 2020 U.S. election.”
Schiff went on MSNBC and publicly called for Trump’s impeachment, while promising that he had no prior knowledge of the report before it was released to the public. Moments later, a Schiff spokesman and other American officials revealed that Schiff had in fact known about the report and was given a detailed outline before its release. Further information revealed that the unknown whistleblower was a registered Democrat who had significant ties to a current, unnamed 2020 Democratic candidate.
Despite Schiff’s lie and the clear bias of the whistleblower, the news media began to peddle and spin a new collusion narrative, while the American people astutely watched and waited for actual evidence of collusion.
The media began to focus on Trump’s handling of military funding to Ukraine, claiming he purposely chose to delay the transfer of $400 million dollars in military assistance in order to coerce Zelinsky to participate in an investigation of the Biden family. While Trump has denied these allegations, the media remained ruthless in their attacks on Trump.
Liberals believe that Trump is purposely trying to bring down Joe Biden because he is a top-tier Democratic candidate who will likely be Trump’s opponent in 2020. What they seem to be forgetting, however, is the fact that just because someone is running for president doesn’t mean they are above the law and free from investigation.
Perhaps the most critical issue with this supposed impeachment inquiry is the fact that the Democrats are not allowing due process. Trump has not been given the most basic rights held under the Constitution to call witnesses or produce explanatory evidence beyond the unprecedented release of his phone call transcript. Further, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi refused to call for a formal vote in the House because she argues that the Constitution has no specific guidelines for impeachment and that the House holds sole power.
Instead of trying to force Trump out of office through slander and misinformation, or manufacturing hoaxes and exaggerating stories, Democrats should propose their own solutions to the problems they have with Trump. Instead of trying to steal back the White House through exaggeration and slander, they should run a fair race by debating, campaigning, and actually trying to win.
The majority of American people believe that Congress “should focus on fixing important problems facing America, rather than focusing on investigating Trump,” according to a recent Reuters report.
The Left’s current strategy will result in the downfall of the Democratic party and Trump’s re-election.
