Trump Impeachment Is Blueprint To Overthrow Government From Within

November 18, 2019   |   by James G. Dalton

Authored by Jenna Ellis Rives, op-ed via The Hill,

The House began public hearings this week, furthering the partisan move by the Democrats to impeach President Trump in a blatant abuse of constitutional authority. Representative Adam Schiff said in a press conference, “These open hearings will be an opportunity for the American people to evaluate the witnesses for themselves and also to learn firsthand about the facts of the president’s misconduct.”

There are several problems with this statement.

First, Schiff is already characterizing the outcome of the investigation. As the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, he serves as a key arbiter of the inquiry under the resolution. As such, he is in a position that demands an unbiased irreproachable ethic in evaluating requests for subpoenas and testimony. Any judge in a similar position would be required to recuse himself with even a hint of the pure bias Schiff has displayed, including coordination with the Ukraine whistleblower and other actions.

The Democrats do not even pretend that their impeachment game is fair or actually about fact finding. This is simply about using a grant of power in the Constitution arbitrarily and politically, outside the bounds of due process and the purpose of that authority. Although the House does have the “sole power” of impeachment, that is a grant of jurisdiction, not a license to proceed on purely partisan motivation. Article One must work coordinately and not inconsistently with Article Two, which provides the legal basis upon which a sitting president may be impeached.

Second, Schiff demonstrates this is all about media play in the court of public opinion. Voters have no power or responsibility in an impeachment proceeding. The drafters of the Constitution intended the impeachment and removal process to be exercised only when there was sufficient evidence that the subject of the impeachment had committed a legally qualifying offense. This is not about whether impeachment is popular in the polls or whether a majority of Americans prefer it. Transparency in the context of this quasi judicial process is to provide fundamental fairness and due process for the president. Why are the Democrats so hellbent on blatantly refusing to allow Republican subpoenas and witnesses?

It is because it is a sham. Yet the Democrats are openly admitting that their goal is to try this in the media and attempt to dishonestly convince us that somehow we too should hate Donald Trump. They are hoping to convince us not to vote for him. That is not a legitimate or constitutional purpose of an impeachment. It is rather ironic that they claim his “crime” is an alleged quid pro quo to gain political advantage, while they are manipulating the power of impeachment for their political advantage. It is Schiff and other Democrats like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who should be impeached. There is an actual constitutional basis for that.

Third, Schiff is proving beyond doubt that this entire impeachment is merely a coordinated partisan attack against President Trump and, even more importantly, against the government of the United States. There was a bipartisan effort was against impeachment, with two Democrats and all Republicans in the House voting against the inquiry. The Democrats are abusing the power of impeachment and, if they are allowed to move forward, they are not only setting a terrible precedent that impeachment can be wielded as a political weapon that it was never intended to be, but also attacking the Constitution and undermining the rule of law.

In the Federalist Papers, Alexander Hamilton explained the problem of political motivation with the power of impeachment. He wrote,

“A well constituted court for the trial of impeachments, is an object not more to be desired than difficult to be obtained in a government wholly elective. The subjects of its jurisdiction are those offenses which proceed from the misconduct of public men, or in other words from the abuse or violation of some public trust. They are of a nature which may with peculiar propriety be denominated political, as they relate chiefly to injuries done immediately to the society itself. The prosecution of them, for this reason, will seldom fail to agitate the passions of the whole community, and to divide it into parties, more or less friendly or inimical, to the accused.”

He was right. Schiff and Pelosi are not interested in real demonstrations of innocence or guilt. Their only interest is staging a political coup against their adversaries. But this is even bigger than the president. This is an attempt to overthrow the federal government from the inside.

      Some well established, credentialed persons should be currently assembling the case for treason against them, so that when the time is right, the engine is started to complete their removal – with no other possible outcome but death/prison/or permanent deportation.

    Since we have three equal branches of government why doesn’t the judicial wing step up to the plate and stop this blatant attempt to overthrow the 2020 election by allowing witnesses that have no other basis other than their hatred of Trump to lie about whatever they want with no credibility other than their word.

    I agree with what you are saying. The Dems are throwing out all kinds of incentives to get the votes. I sincerely hope people will stop and think about what is going on. Our country is at stake here and there will be consequences for all their comments while promising things that will break this govt. financially. There is a hidden theme in all of this that they want white people to be the minority in this country.
    cooper Anderson NBC stated on his show that he will be glad when white people are the minority. If you look at what is happening white people do not have a lot of children these days for they have gotten more responsible as to what they can financially afford to give their children. Some , not all, other nationalities have multiple children regardless of whether they can afford their actual care. That then puts them on Welfare. One young woman was on the Dr. Phil Show at the request of her mother. She had 3 kids with fathers already and was going to have more so her welfare checks would increase. The mother was hoping Dr. Phil could get through to her but with no sense of what she was doing to her kids she just didn’t want to get a job. Mom told her that after 4 kids there would not be any increases but she did not listen. But this was an example of what some young people ideas are. It’s so sad for kids who cannot help themselves. With these things in mind what will this country and the children’s world be in future years? I hope people will consider these things when they go to vote. Every MILK cow goes dry after so many years of over use.

      I saw on the 700 Club, a guest was saying it takes 2.6 children to keep a culture just neutral. Worldwide the Caucasian Race is only having 1.6 offspring. By 2060 whites will be a minority worldwide. Europe could be much sooner. Since the industrial age whites have been having less children because many have left the farms and don’t need children to help the many chores on farms. I am 80, probably won’t be here for the major changes, but it is going to be hell for my grandchildren.

    I saw on the news a week or so ago, Pelosi saying, “No one gets up in the morning and says, “I am going to impeach the president.” ANOTHER BIG LIE! The Democrats began the “impeachment process” BEFORE HE WAS EVEN SWORN IN TO THE OFFICE.” What a lot of time and unbelievable amount of money being WASTED so the Democrats can try to exact vengeance toward Trump and the American people. It is shameful, immoral,diabolical, disgraceful, contemptable, and so many more synonyms describing TREASON.
