At approximately 9:05 a.m. Tuesday morning, the House Democratic Committee chairs involved in the phony impeachment railroad against President Donald Trump glumly took their places at the podium after being introduced by Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Glumly, because they had all been told to look seriously, and as the Speaker Pelosi endlessly says, “prayerfully” glum –as if they were some Congressional form of decorticated Cigar Store Indians. Trying to force a seriousness and depth upon words which were otherwise bizarre and crazy, they announced two articles of impeachment against Donald Trump. The articles, one for abuse of power and the other for obstruction of Congress, will now be forwarded to the full Judiciary Committee for a vote, this week, and then to the full House for a vote, they say, before Christmas. (The video can be watched here, if you insist.)
Never has such a pile of manure accumulated so rapidly. The entire proceeding lasted less than 15 minutes. First came the shrunken Judiciary Chair Jerry Nadler, to report that the President had abused his office for his personal benefit while injuring the national security by asking Ukraine to intervene in the 2020 elections on his behalf. When the President got caught doing this, (a reference to the bogus whistleblower who no one is allowed to know) Nadler said, Trump obstructed the Congressional investigation of his conduct in an unprecedented fashion. Nadler them deferred to Adam Schiff to pile on with what can only be described as pure psychedelic fantasy.
Schiff announced that it was “uncontested” that the President had harmed the national security for his own benefit, demanding that the Ukrainians investigate his 2020 opponent Joe Biden and investigate a “baseless conspiracy theory pushed by the Russians” that the Ukrainians intervened in the 2016 elections, in return for a White House meeting and lethal military assistance to fight Russian aggression. Mad Adam, eyes bulging, declared that this could not wait because the President would get Ukraine or some other foreign power to intervene in the 2020 election on his behalf just as had cheated that way in 2016. Bang, that was it, and they shuffled together off the stage, taking no questions.
This is mad. Two and half years of investigation showed that there was no Trump/Russia collusion in 2016. The Inspector General’s Report and the Durham Report will show that the Obama White House and intelligence community, assisted and led by the nose by the British, organized a broad international enterprise to defeat Donald Trump and to undermine and defeat his Presidency. The simple reality is that there was Ukrainian intervention into the 2016 election on Hillary Clinton’s behalf and now it appears that that intervention was directly coordinated between the Clinton Campaign’s Ukrainian agent, Alexandra Chalupa, Joe Biden, the Obama Ukraine National Security Council chair who is the whistleblower protected by Schiff and the Democrats, elements of the U.S. State Department together with George Soros, and the Atlantic Council. The simple reality is that Joe Biden’s son had a corrupt relationship to the Ukrainian oil company Burisma, earning him millions of dollars, and that Joe Biden demanded that the prosecutor investigating Burisma be fired or he would ensure that Ukraine lost billions in U.S. aid. There is no evidence in the record of any quid pro quo, bribery, or anything else that can be drummed up or imagined by Adam Schiff with regards to Donald Trump. The aid was delivered, there were no Ukrainian investigations. That is unfortunate, because as Rudy Giuliani appears to know, opening the Ukraine file starting with the Orange Revolution and proceeding through the British/U.S. coup in 2013-2014 which installed actual neo-Nazis under U.S. sponsorship in the Ukrainian government is critical to uprooting the unelected treason faction inhabiting the State Department and our intelligence agencies and realizing President Trump’s aspiration to “drain the swamp.”
Finally, claiming that the President can be impeached for obstruction because he tests Congressional subpoenas to senior foreign policy advisors in the courts, as the Democrats claim now, is, an actual and very dangerous abuse of power. Professor Jonathan Turley warned his Democratic friends not to do this on precisely these grounds in his testimony before the Judiciary Committee last week. Turley said it is an actual abuse of power, not by the President, but by the Congress.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy responded to the Democrats’ 9 a.m. skit by pointing out that Speaker Pelosi had said just last week at a press conference that two and one half years ago the Democrats began mapping their plan for impeachment. Nadler campaigned for Judiciary Chair by claiming he would be the best guy to accomplish the feat. As soon as the Democrats regained control of the House, way back in January of 2019, Pelosi drastically altered the House Rules to facilitate precisely the one sided Star Chamber like show trial proceedings which occurred over the past two months. Almost as soon as the Democrats left their morning show, Pelosi announced that the USMCA was being voted up in the House. As McCarthy said, given the unpopularity of impeachment, Pelosi has to have something to claim that the Democrats did something with their majority, even if it appears to be a victory for Donald Trump.
