On Saturday, President Donald Trump’s legal team released a strong, formal rebuke of the House-led impeachment against the president, accusing Democrats of using the Constitutional process as a means to undermine the results of the 2016 election, when Trump managed to win against the heavily-favored Hillary Clinton.
According to Fox News, Trump’s legal team criticized the substance behind the two articles of impeachment passed last year against the president, for “obstruction of Congress” and “abuse of power.”
“This is a brazen and unlawful attempt to overturn the results of the 2016 election and interfere with the 2020 election now just months away,” one of the sources familiar with the statement reportedly said was in the legal document.
A good friend of mine wrote a letter to their hometown newspaper which states the case for non-impeachment of Trump to the point. They said:
“This is all just an effort by the Democrat Socialists to subvert the will of the U.S. electorate; the Socialists don’t like the way we voted in 2016 so they’re attempting to invalidate our votes. We have a constitutional right to a freely elected government, this vile quixotic endeavor by the Socialists decimates that right.
These “articles of impeachment” do not include a single molecule of illegal activity or wrongdoing on Trump’s part. Trump is 100% innocent of the wrongdoing levied against him by the Democrat Socialists. He’s been charged with nothing, he’s been convicted of nothing. He and his entire staff have had their 4th Amendment rights egregiously violated. Yet, according to the Socialists, he has no constitutional presumption of innocence and has been tried and convicted.”
That is all so true and well said and now Trump’s approval numbers turned positive the day after Pelosi signs impeachment articles. Ahh, revenge will be sweet in November.
Recently on MSNBC’s “The Beat,” Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz, a member of Trump’s legal team, picked apart the two articles of impeachment House Democrats have impeached him for.
According to Breitbart, Dershowitz said that the obstruction of Congress charge against President Trump “is completely made up. The president invoked his executive authority, separation of powers, checks and balances.
Regarding abuse of power, Dershowitz stated, “virtually half of American presidents, from Adams, to Jefferson, to Lincoln, to Roosevelt, have been accused of abuse of power, and the framers explicitly rejected those kinds of broad, open-ended criteria. They were fearful that it would empower Congress to turn the presidency into the prime ministership of England, where the prime minister can have his tenure ended by a simple vote of no confidence. That’s not what the framers wanted. They wanted specific criteria for impeachment, and none of those criteria, in my view, have been met. And I will layout that argument.”
Dershowitz added that “abuse of power, even if proved, is not an impeachable offense. That’s exactly what the framers rejected. They didn’t want to give Congress the authority to remove a president because he abused his power.
Meanwhile, the socialist Democrats darling Quid Pro Joe Biden who is the real guilty party of what they are accusing Trump of walks unscathed. Trump just asked the Ukraine President to look into corruption on Biden’s part. Biden, on the other hand, threatened the Ukraine president with gangster style tactics by holding off on giving them a billion dollars in taxpayer-funded aid unless he fired the prosecutor investigating his son. “Fire the prosecutor and you get the billion dollars. Don’t fire him and you don’t get it. You’ve got six hours to do it,” Biden told him.
The Ukrainian president fired the prosecutor and he got the billion dollars. Biden is on tape bragging about it and the media does a 180 and turns a blind eye to it saying the tape doesn’t exist when it is right there in front of them and you can see it below.
The Dems also accuse Trump of withholding military aid to Ukraine when their guy Obama withheld it for three years. Trump just withheld it for 50 days until they could be sure to trust the new incoming president. They did get the aid that Obama never delivered, but Trump is the bad guy.
The Dems also want to include the fact that Trump didn’t inform them when he took out Solemeni in the impeachment articles. If he informed them I’m sure they would have leaked that out and Solemeni would have escaped continuing his reign of terror. Trump has taken out the two biggest terrorists with Al Bagdadi and Solemeni and the world is much better off without them, but the Dems oppose everything Trump does and therefore they and the media are truly the enemies of the people.
