The Unfairness of the Left’s Impeachment Push Against Trump

What would you do if you were
prosecuted and the prosecutors never named the alleged crime? Or if they kept
changing the rules by which they were prosecuting you? 

How about if the prosecutorial
team suggested you be arrested and held in solitary confinement before they
even stated the charge? In fact, what if they repeatedly admitted that their
attacks were motivated solely by the fact that they don’t like you?

Now, I ask every fair American
to consider what the Democrats led by House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff,
House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and the
radical four leftist House freshmen are doing to President Donald Trump. 

The day after the 2016 presidential
election, the Democrats began talking about impeachment. They haven’t let up
since. The fact that they stated their intent to pursue impeachment before
Trump was even in office reveals that they are motivated by hatred. 

Democrats have spent the past
three years chasing their dream of impeaching the president, which is an
American nightmare of divisiveness. They stated no charge. They have flitted
around like a moth drawn to the light. 

First it was the Russian collusion narrative. Democrats forced multiple investigations, which all failed and embarrassed them. They should have felt shame for the evaporation of this fairy tale, but we still hear Democrats say that there is actual proof that Trump colluded with the Russians to influence the 2016 election. 

Then it was the crazy
obstruction of justice allegation based on the non-collusion fact. They were
cornered into arguing that the president must prove his innocence, not that the
impeachment-mongers had to prove obstruction. Imagine asking a judge to
overturn the U.S. Constitution like that. 

Then it was the July 25 telephone call with the Ukraine’s president. This thing unraveled fast. Day One, they claimed Trump had threatened President Volodymyr Zelenskyy eight times. When that wasn’t true, as shown by the White House transcript of the call, Democrats and leftist media types went on a coordinated kick, claiming the president is a mob boss and his threat was implicit or not overtly stated after all. 

When Zelenskyy and the Ukrainian
foreign minister said there was no pressure, it wiped that narrative,

Next, Democrats all got on the
same page by claiming there was a cover-up by the administration because the
call between the two world leaders, which contained pointed criticism of other
leaders, was classified. 

Well, that approach was also met
with derision because all of the documentation pertaining to that phone call
was released with other documents. Hard to cover up something you were open and
transparent about. 

And that brings us to the leftists’
point person on the legislative harassment of the president: Rep. Adam Schiff.
Unlike a real impeachment investigation or a court of law, Schiff inexcusably
fabricated and publicly read a transcript of the call in question. Let’s make
it as clear as possible: There wasn’t anything true in his statement. 

Then Schiff followed up the
whole thing with a secret hearing last week in which he tried to prevent the
public from hearing the truth from the witness who was giving testimony to
committee members.

Unlike a real impeachment
inquiry, the president doesn’t get counsel, Republicans are precluded from
calling witnesses, and no charges have been lodged by the pro-impeachment

Again, imagine you were being
attacked in this way. You probably would join the president and me in calling
for a censure of the ringleader and demanding that he be removed from his
position of leading this coup attempt.

You can’t carry on a case in
court with these types of anomalies, so why should these opponents of the
president be allowed to overturn the election of 2016?
