House Democrats are doing everything they can to destroy Donald Trump.
So eager to push impeachment, they launched an “inquiry” over a single phone call.
Despite any real evidence and the fact Americans don’t want it, they are determined to impeach the president. The White House just issued its official response to their scheme. It was brutal.
After years of refusing to back impeachment, Nancy Pelosi caved to radical leftists when she supported an impeachment inquiry against Donald Trump. It shouldn’t surprise Americans. Democrats have been looking for ways to stop Trump since he was elected.
These un-American goons tried to disrupt the electoral process—threatening to stop the Electoral College from validating the 2016 Election. They tried to disrupt the Inauguration. They pushed a Russian collusion hoax to discredit his victory.
Now, they are distorting a simple phone call as reason to impeach him.
Yet how they have conducted this entire affair proves they are in the wrong. Rep. Adam Schiff is conducting closed-door hearings, refusing to let the information be public. After leaking countless sensitive pieces of information to the press, he doesn’t want you to know what the House is doing.
Democrats are trying to strongarm witnesses into giving them anything to use against the president. Everything the left is doing defies the law and government norms.
So, the White House issued an official response to the Democrats. In a defiant, intense letter, the president refused to comply with their demands, calling their inquiry—in so many words—a sham.
The White House outlined in a defiant eight-page letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and top Democrats on Tuesday why it will not participate in their “illegitimate and unconstitutional” impeachment inquiry, charging that the proceedings have run roughshod over congressional norms and the president’s due-process rights…
“President Trump and his administration reject your baseless, unconstitutional efforts to overturn the democratic process,” the letter stated. “Your unprecedented actions have left the president with no choice. In order to fulfill his duties to the American people, the Constitution, the Executive Branch, and all future occupants of the Office of the Presidency, President Trump and his administration cannot participate in your partisan and unconstitutional inquiry under these circumstances.”
Substantively, the White House first noted in its letter that there has not been a formal vote in the House to open an impeachment inquiry — and that the news conference held by Pelosi last month was insufficient to commence the proceedings. [Source: Fox News]
Trump condemned Democrats for trying to pull an impeachment without approval of the entire House. Pelosi and her gang just decided to run this inquiry, without any input from any other lawmakers.
Even if you are a Democrat, you have to see the bias in what they are doing. They have declared President Trump guilty until proven innocent. Based on a faulty whistleblower complaint, they have already concluded Trump should be punished.
Much like the case of Brett Kavanaugh, Democrats have determined Trump is guilty based on hearsay and rumor. They are conducting an investigation looking for dirt to prove their claims. That is a violation of due process and every right we have as Americans.
Not only that, but Adam Schiff lied about his knowledge of the whistleblower. By now we know he communicated with this person before the news became public. That casts doubt on everything that has gone on. Schiff then, during an open hearing, publicly distorted the content of the call by reading a made-up version of it.
On top of that, they ignore real crimes committed against Ukraine—as when Joe Biden threatened the nation to protect his son’s job.
Clearly, the Democrats aren’t interested in justice. They are using a nothing-burger of a phone call to push their agenda. They never accepted the fact that America wanted Trump as president. They hate his success.
They are doing everything to undo his progress—the Constitution be damned.
But President Trump is not playing their games. He has thrown down the gauntlet with this letter. He and his staff will not participate in this un-Constitutional game.
Good for him.
