Let’s boil this impeachment down to some basics. Donald Trump, the man, is not who the deep state and the leftists in politics want running the show. They will do anything they can to get rid of him even though he won the vote of the people.
This is one of those strange times when the unelected bureaucracy is openly working to remove someone they believe to be unfit for office. The reason for impeachment is what? Trump asked Ukraine to investigate corruption of Democratic Party political opponent Joe Biden’s son. They claim Trump asked a foreign country to investigate someone to benefit himself politically. Is this a high crime or misdemeanor? The answer may be found in a simple Senate document.
On November 10, 1999, President Bill Clinton presented to the US Senate the “Treaty Between the United States of America and Ukraine on Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters” that was signed on September 30, 1999. Clinton’s note to the Senate read:
“The Treaty is one of a series of modern mutual legal assistance treaties being negotiated by the United States in order to counter criminal activities more effectively. The Treaty should be an effective tool to assist in the prosecution of a wide variety of crimes, including drug trafficking offenses. The Treaty is self-executing. It provides for a broad range of cooperation in criminal matters.”
He continued, “Mutual assistance available under the Treaty includes: taking of testimony or statements of persons; providing documents, records, and articles of evidence; serving documents; locating or identifying persons; transferring persons in custody for testimony or other purposes; executing requests for searches and seizures; assisting in proceedings related to restraint, confiscation, forfeiture of assets, restitution, and collection of fines; and any other form of assistance not prohibited by the laws of the requested state.”
These are all things that come with corruption investigations and are part of Trump’s request to Ukraine’s President regarding Hunter Biden. By the way, Joe Biden (D-DE) was a Senator at the time of this treaty.
President Trump was making–how would he say it, “a very, very legal request”–of Ukraine’s president.
That the Democratic Party leadership is sore that one of their presidential candidates could be implicated in corruption in another country is not Trump’s fault. It is yet more proof that the coup-makers here are accusing those who disagree with them of exactly what they are doing.
This Jot is written to equip you in discussing impeachment with others. You are the last line of defense for protecting all of our Constitutional rights, especially of free speech and religious freedom. As Paul writes in Ephesians 6:19,
“And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel.”
In this case, speak boldly to expose this charade. With impeachment, public opinion counts. Your opinion counts.
