After months of news reports, stacked hearings, controlling the impeachment narrative, suppressing contradictory testimony and doctoring transcripts of witnesses, the best the House Democratic coup-makers could come up with were two charges of impeachment against President Donald Trump. The House Democrats charged Trump with obstruction of Congress and abuse of power. While pressing the narrative that nobody is above the law, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is making a strong case that the law applies only to non-Democrats, for the majority in Congress can conduct hearings without due process and corruption investigations cannot occur if they involve Democratic Party members.
On abuse of power, the Articles of Impeachment read: “President Trump solicited the interference of a foreign government, Ukraine, in the 2020 United States Presidential election. He did so through a scheme or course of conduct that included soliciting the Government of Ukraine to publicly announce investigations that would benefit his reelection, harm the election prospects of a political opponent, and influence the 2020 United States Presidential election to his advantage. President Trump also sought to pressure the Government of Ukraine to take these steps by conditioning official United States Government acts of significant value to Ukraine on its public announcement of investigations. President Trump engaged in this scheme or course of conduct for corrupt purposes in pursuit of personal political benefit.”
Regarding Obstruction of Congress, the Articles read: “Donald J. Trump has directed the unprecedented, categorical, and indiscriminate defiance of subpoenas issued by the House of Representatives pursuant to its “sole Power of Impeachment.” President Trump has abused the powers of the Presidency in a manner offensive to, and subversive of, the Constitution…Wherefore, President Trump, by such conduct, has demonstrated that he will remain a threat to the Constitution if allowed to remain in office, and has acted in a manner grossly incompatible with self-governance and the rule of law. President Trump thus warrants impeachment and trial, removal from office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust, or profit under the United States.”
This show-trial by the Democrats is evidence that tyrants have hijacked Congress and modeled it after a third-world communist dictatorship. They rigged the system to get the sound bites and optics they wanted. They clearly demonstrated that if you are a Democratic candidate for President, that your family cannot be investigated for obvious corruption, and that standing up against a vacuum of due process is a violation of their newly-interpreted version of the US Constitution.
This is bad for the Constitution and bad for the country, irrespective if it happened to this president or any other.
The soil of American Liberty beckons a Psalm 94:16 moment, “Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? Or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?” It is us. We must arise and stand. Speak boldly to all who will listen.
