Trump’s Trial by Charlatans

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

This is a partisan railroading of epic proportions. Future historians will surely marvel at the audacity of it all. The Democrats, after all, seek to remove Trump on a storyline that corresponds not to his record but to theirs. It was the Democrats who used foreigners to spy on Trump. They didn’t merely consider it. They actually did it, throwing the lives of Trump staffers into havoc on a false hunch. Trump, by contrast, wanted Ukraine to pursue real corruption. There is no question that Hunter Biden enriched himself off a corrupt company. Leave it to the Democrats, the party of projection, to crucify Trump for a “high crime” they alone committed, under a Constitution they long ago disregarded.

Chuck Schumer, Democrats must have Founding Fathers rolling in their graves

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

Schumer’s bare-knuckle approach immediately dashed the faintest hope that the proceedings would reflect the gravity of the moment and explain the unprecedented effort to remove a president in an election year. Instead, Schumer picked up exactly where the House left off, injecting venom into every sentence and inflating his accusations far beyond what is contained in the actual articles of impeachment. Blackmail? A crime against democracy? His words constitute false advertising because the House charged the president only with “abuse of power” and “obstruction of Congress.” In truth, the only crime against democracy is the Dems’ endless effort to overturn the 2016 election.

Trump’s Official Answer To Democrats’ Articles Of Impeachment

House Democrats’ impeachment articles are constitutionally invalid and the result of a lawless process devoid of even the most basic due process. The toll-free Capitol Switchboard number (1-866-220-0044), we urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Senators to demand that the Senate expeditiously hear and reject the Democrats’ anti-constitutional attempt to impeach President Trump.

Is Hunter Biden Closer To Testifying In Senate Impeachment Trial?

Speaking on Sunday's political talk shows, Republican Senator Ted Cruz and Democrat Senator Sharrod Brown came to opposite conclusions about whether Hunter Biden would be called to testify in President Trump's Senate impeachment trial. Sen. Cruz said Democrats were terrified and would never let it happen, while Sen. Brown said he was OK with the idea as part of a witness reciprocity deal.

Four Impeachment Witnesses The Senate Must Call

The toll-free Capitol Switchboard number (1-866-220-0044), we urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Senators to demand that if there are witnesses called in the impeachment trial of President Trump, Hunter Biden, Joe Biden, Eric Ciaramella and Adam Schiff should be the first ones called.

As witness fight rages, whistleblower fades away

Byron York, Washington Examiner

One key figure in the Ukraine affair appears to have faded from view, even as impeachment reaches a climax. The whistleblower who started the whole investigation remains anonymous. The details of the whistleblower's actions by which the whistleblower brought the Ukraine matter to the attention of the intelligence community to House Democrats, and ultimately to the world, remain unclear. Look for Democrats to do everything they can to block calling the whistleblower to testify in the Senate. Is that only because Democrats are concerned about the whistleblower's well-being? Or is there some other reason Democrats do not want the world to know about the origins of the case?

Vile Democrat Adam Schiff Draws Opponent: California Super Lawyer Eric Early

In launching his campaign Mr. Early said, “Adam Schiff’s witch-hunt against our President is reprehensible. Schiff continually abuses his power and misleads the American people, wasting tens of millions of our dollars in the process. It’s got to stop. I’m sick and tired of being lied to by career politician Schiff as he tries to destroy the President and works to replace our Democracy with Socialism."

Mitch McConnell Goes Into Full Killer Turtle Mode On Impeachment

Senator McConnell’s stinging remarks about impeachment were long overdue, and will no doubt be seen by many as some sort of milestone in the impeachment battle – and well they might prove to be if they are followed up with action. One action Senator McConnell could take is to move the Senate to immediately dismiss the charges if they are ever brought.

Senate Shouldn’t Dignify Impeachment Parody With a Trial

David Catron, The American Spectator

The Democratic impeachment parody is pathetic. If Democrats ever manage to produce articles of impeachment, the Senate shouldn’t dignify them with a trial. Conviction requires a two-thirds majority and the GOP would begin the process with a majority of 53-47. That means 20 Republicans would have to defect. Thus, the only purpose served by a trial would be to smear President Trump while generating enough sound and fury to convince the increasingly unhinged Democratic base that its “representatives” are actually accomplishing something. It would dignify the Democrats’ destructive agenda, their low regard for the voters, and their willingness to waste the Senate’s time on a tawdry circus.
