Impeachment I

Are the Democrats Trying to Impeach President Trump, Dump Joe Biden, or Both? Someone, a supporter of a democratic candidate for President, who had no first hand information of a Presidential telephone call with the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, acted as a whistle blower complaining of President Trump. He wasn’t there, and hadn’t even seen a transcript of the call. (Transcripts are all that all available of these calls since the Administration stopped taping them after he end of the Nixon Administration.) We don’t yet know who the whistle blower is. We now know the actual words in the phone call. We now know the allegations in the nine page faux whistle blower’s letter do not line up with the transcript of the actual call. Both President Trump and the Ukrainian government deny any pressure occurred. Witnesses were on the calls and a transcript made of the call. Apparently the Ukraine President was unaware the funds were held up until sometime after the phone conversation. Yet the Democrats are immediately yelling “Impeach, Impeach, Impeach.” Representative Adam Schiff is acting more sanctimonious than usual in excoriating the President. The latest allegations against the President may merit impeachment: “If the President is essentially withholding military aid and at the same time that he is trying to browbeat a foreign leader into doing something illicit … then that may be the only remedy that is coequal to the evil that that conduct represents.” Former New Hampshire Governor John Sununu stated all of Representative Schiff’s claims are “pure unadulterated lies.” The Democrats are so desperate to impeach President Trump that they are relying on a faux, partisan whistle blower who was not present during the conversation and did not see the transcript of the phone call. They are relying upon a non-whistle blowing whistle blower whose letter was written by partisan anti-Trump lawyers. That’s the Hail Mary of Hail Marys. The Fusion GPS Russian Dossier at least had a scintilla of veracity with the Obama security officials (Brennen, Clapper and Comey) vouching for it. The nine page letter is a refined version of the false stories about Judge Kavanaugh. Note that John Brennen and James Clapper have become highly reticent. They’re worry about the “I” word, indictment, for their misconduct. Here’s what we think we know - the allegation: President Trump threatened to withhold assistance to Ukraine unless the country initiated an investigation of Vice President Biden and his son Hunter. In other words the President was enlisting a foreign government into domestic politics for personal reasons. President Obama sent political operatives to Israel three years ago in a failed attempt to defeat Prime Minister Netanyahu. The Clinton Campaign paid GPS and a British operative with Russian connections for the Russian Dossier to defeat Donald Trump. Here’s what we know: Vice President Joe Biden threatened to withhold $1 billion in loan guarantees to Ukraine unless Viktor Shokin, a prosecutor, was fired. The prosecutor was investigating corruption. Hunter Biden, the VP’s son, received a sweetheart deal in an appointment to the Board of Directors of Burisma, a natural gas company. Hunter was earning up to $50,000 a month from Burisma, which was being investigated for corruption by both the Ukrainian and United States governments. Hunter’s father, Vice President Joe Biden, was President Obama’s special contact with the Ukraine government. Hunter’s business later got a $3 billion sweetheart contract from China. He was unqualified for either the Ukraine or China relationships, both obtained because his father was Vice President. Hunter was kicked out of the Navy in February 2014 after testing positive for cocaine. He had earlier left a crack pipe in a damaged rental car. We know because the Joe Biden bragged about it on January 23, 2019 before the Council on Foreign relations: “If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.” It’s on tape. The media and VP Biden are ignoring it or explaining the tape away, which brings us to Groucher Marx’s famous line in Duck Soup: “Who ya gonna believe me or your own eyes?” We know because the New York Times on May 1, 2019 printed a front page article “Biden Faces Conflict of Interest Questions That Are Being Promoted by Trump and Allies.” If the Democrats really try to impeach President Trump on the Ukraine, Vice President Joe Biden will also fall. Either they want President Trump out – or both. The more they push the impeachment case over upcoming months, the more Vice President Joe Biden will be scrutinized in the news. It’s not the news he needs or wants, as he drops in the polls. Why the rush to impeach? 1)Pressure from the left wing Twitters. 2) The recently elected Democrats from Congressional districts won by President Trump are scared of primary challengers. 3) Impeachment is their best chance to remove President Trump. 4) They’re desperate to divert attention from the upcoming Justice Department reports, and possible indictments of the Comey-McCabe-Stryock-Brennen-Clapper cabal to remove President Trump. They are projecting their own corruption (Biden) and Trump and perhaps trying to deflect attention from the indirect bribery of politicians through relatives, such as children. 5) Never Trumpers and Trump Derangement Syndrome It’s a nothing burger as the media abets them in making a mountain out of a molehill Gertrude Stein once said “there is no there, there.” Don’t let facts get in the way of impeachment. Every first year student knows a complaint is just a series of unverified allegations – not the facts. Yet, this Democratic House of Representatives is quick to believe an anti-Trump/Kavanaugh accuser – ready, fire, aim. They’ve done it continuously with President Trump. They tried it again a few weeks ago with new unverified accusations against Justice Kavanaugh. Even the purported victim denied any memory of it and no witnesses couch vouch it occurred. The allegation was made by Max Stier, a lawyer who represented President Clinton in his impeachment proceedings, but the Democrats rushed to impeach – for a couple of days. Dems are trigger happy on impeachment. They’re salivating, hyperventilating, and hallucinating Here’s another incredible allegation about President Trump: He asked a foreign leader for a favor - twice. Every politician incessantly asks for favors. Speaker Pelosi accused the President of abusing his power. Every Congress thinks the President is abusing his power, which most do, but then again so do most legislators.
