Trump Defense Team: Nine Key Facts Democrats Hid

Given that few Americans, even stalwart conservative CHQ readers, entered Saturday's TV “Death Valley” to watch the Trump defense team’s opening presentation, we think pulling out the nine key points made by White House deputy counsel Michael Purpura will help readers understand exactly where President Trump’s defense team is headed.

Relieved Republicans welcome Trump defense

Byron York, Washington Examiner

The mixture of substance and process was a sign White House lawyers knew that, even among Republicans, they were addressing a varied audience. Some GOP senators wished the White House had made a more substantive defense over the last few months. Some were angry at the House Democrats' procedural shortcuts. Some were worried about the tone of the impeachment battle. On Saturday, the Trump defense team seemed to find the right balance. "The tone was right, the demeanor was right, the delivery was right," said one Republican senator. "They deconstructed the Democrats' arguments in a respectful way, very appropriate for the Senate chamber. It wasn't like Jerry Nadler standing there calling all of us liars."

A Copious Compendium Of Schiff’s Lies

With the establishment media in a disgusting bromance with Democrat impeachment manager Rep. Adam Schiff, we thought we’d wrap-up the first few days of the impeachment farce – we mean Senate trial – by collecting as many of Schiff’s lies as we could find into one well-sourced document.

Mitch McConnell And The Democrats’ Strange Confusion About Impeachment

So far it looks like united Senate Republicans, with McConnell’s firm leadership, are prepared to face down the Democrats’ demands to pursue the President beyond the facts already in the record and put fairness, even-handedness and historical precedent ahead of the outrageous partisanship that is driving House Democrats to tear the country apart in their effort to overturn the 2016 election.

The Democrats’ Nakedly Craven And Unserious Impeachment

Note to angry Democrats: Donald Trump is still your President. And he will remain your President unless the Senate convicts him in a trial – and the only way that has any possibility of happening is if the House transmits to the Senate the article of impeachment it passed.

Trump Nails Reason Pelosi Is Withholding Articles Of Impeachment

President Trump tweeted: "The Democrats will do anything to avoid a trial in the Senate in order to protect Sleepy Joe Biden, and expose the millions and millions of dollars that 'Where's' Hunter, & possibly Joe, were paid by companies and countries for doing NOTHING. Joe wants no part of this mess!"

Impeachment Trial: What Should Trump And McConnell Do?

The President's desire to have his day in court lines up with the thinking of many grassroots Trump supporters who want to see witnesses like Joe Biden, Biden’s son Hunter, Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff, and fake “whistleblower” Eric Ciaramella all called and flayed alive on TV. But given the reluctance of Senate leaders to create the potential for the trial turning into a televised circus, it seems unlikely that will happen.

Nancy Pelosi Is A Totalitarian Bully

As we’ve said in other columns the impeachment of President Trump demonstrates why Democrats can never, ever again be trusted with control of the federal government. Speaker Pelosi’s thuggish totalitarianism in denying the House Minority its traditional rights to speak and call witnesses is just one more frightening example of what Democrat government would look like.

Gohmert – Nadler Clash A Metaphor For Everything Wrong About Impeachment

The clash between Gohmert and Nadler was a fitting metaphor for the Democrats’ entire impeachment fantasy in which any facts that conflicted with or brought into question their carefully constructed narrative and carefully tailored record were dismissed as “Russian propaganda.”

Mitch McConnell Sets Up Democrat Impeachment Managers For Days Of Public Humiliation

Given the weakness of the record tailored by House Democrats in their impeachment “investigation,” Mitch McConnell telling Democrats they are stuck with the record as it stands as the basis for the presentation of their case to the Senate sets up days of well-deserved public humiliation for the House Democrats selected as impeachment managers.

Poll After Poll Finds Democrats Underwater On Impeachment

When more voters oppose a candidate or issue than support it, we say the candidate or issue is “underwater” and when even CNN finds more Americans oppose impeachment than support it Democrats are not just underwater, they are drowning.

President Trump’s Fiery Letter To Pelosi Shreds Impeachment Case

In a powerful letter addressed to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, President Trump shredded the Democrats’ case for impeaching him and laid bare the anti-constitutional, anti-American process by which Democrats arrived at their two articles of impeachment.

Call These Vulnerable Democrats, Tell Them To Vote NO On Impeachment

There are 31 Democrat members of Congress who represent districts that President Trump carried in 2016. That includes 13 districts where the President defeated Hillary Clinton by more than 6 points. The toll-free Capitol Switchboard number (1-866-220-0044), we urge CHQ readers and friends to call these 31 Democrats now to stop the unfair and unfounded impeachment of President Trump.

The Most Corrupt, Partisan, Vindictive, Unjust Impeachment In American History

Based on Democrat standards of ‘high crimes and misdemeanors,’ nearly every previous American president could have been impeached and removed from office, beginning with George Washington. But what's even worse is in order to tailor the record to justify impeachment, Democrats have constructed a narrative based on lying, leaking, and misleading the American people to advance their political agenda.

Democrats Tailoring The Record To Justify Impeachment

Bottom line: In order to tailor the record to justify their impeachment narrative, Democrats are refusing to release all the information they have, while dumping cherry-picked documents at the last minute. This only continues the unprecedented and unfair way in which Democrats have conducted this impeachment process – lying, leaking, and misleading the American people to advance their political agenda.

What Impeachment Tells Us A Democrat-Controlled America Would Look Like

Donald Trump is merely the most high-profile victim of the Democrats’ urge to criminalize political diversity. If YOU disagree with Democrats on religious liberty, border security, housing policy, foreign policy, the homeless, or anything else, you represent a threat to the Party and the State. And if there isn’t a crime that fits, what the impeachment of President Trump proves is that Democrats will tailor one especially for you.

Senator Graham Must Bring Schiff’s Reign Of Terror To An End

We urge CHQ readers and friends of civil liberties of whatever political stripe to call Senator Lindsey Graham, the toll-free Capitol Switchboard number (1-866-220-0044), tell him that Americans of all political views are outraged at Democrat Adam Schiff’s use of warrantless subpoenas to obtain the phone records of private citizens and you demand an immediate investigation of Schiff and action to ensure it can never happen again.

What Democrats And The MSM Don’t Want America To Know About Their Impeachment Hoax

If the charges the MSM claim will be the core of the Democrats’ articles of impeachment are rebutted by the facts documented in the Republican report and the Mueller report and negated by the President's constitutional authority, how can he be impeached? The answer is, to Democrats impeachment is a political judgment call and no crime is required.

Conservatives Ask: Should Trump Ignore Or Play Ball With Nadler Impeachment Hearings?

In the end it may boil down to whether President Trump is prepared to let House Judiciary Committee Republicans carry the burden of his defense while he continues to maintain that the Nadler hearings, like the Schiff hearings before them, are illegitimate. Please tell us what you think in the comments section at the end of the article.

Fact-Free Impeachment Redux

Democrats have not set forth any facts that support any claim of criminal conduct by President Trump. What is going on here is the criminalization of policy differences and the creation of a process to legitimize the raw hatred Democrats and the permanent political class have for Donald Trump. This is something not seen in our country since the lead up to the Civil War and it bodes ill for the future of constitutional government.
