Even people in other countries have probably heard about the impeachment probe the Democrats mounted, circumventing the law and making things up in order to do it. This is really beginning to make Democrats look bad, though they don’t control their leadership.
It all began before President Trump was elected. That same leadership was furious that the American people picked a candidate other than theirs and the Democrat leadership swore publically that they would find a way to impeach the president.
They used faked reports to obtain illegal warrants to begin a $40 million investigation, to prove that Trump had colluded with Russia. Unfortunately, for them, the only evidence of collusion with Russia had to do with the Secretary of State under President Obama. Since they couldn’t show collusion, they tried to show that Trump obstructed the investigation. This also failed. Again, the President couldn’t be shown to have obstructed anything.
While all of this was happening, Trump was busy protecting the American people and doing such things as causing an enormous drop in unemployment, an increase in the economy that his predecessor’s own people said was impossible. In other words, Trump held true to the promises he’d made to the people who elected him. That infuriated the Democrat leadership even more.
So then they used a sham to claim that the president misused his power by invoking quid pro quo. In layman’s terms, that is “you scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours.” They tried to claim that in a phone conversation with the newly elected president of Ukraine, that President Trump tried to coerce the Ukrainian president and pressure him to investigate the son of a rival and Democrat, Joe Biden. This was a serious mistake on the part of the Democrat leadership. All presidential phone conversations are tape-recorded. Trump responded by declassifying the conversation and releasing the transcript. The transcript of the conversation can be found here. Although the left-leaning media has tried to make something out of it that isn’t there, anyone can read the transcript and will quickly see that there was no quid pro quo. In fact, the president of Ukraine even released a statement saying that in no way did he ever feel coerced.
Their current move is based entirely on one statement from the transcript:
I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say Crowdstrike… I guess you have one of your wealthy people… The server, they say Ukraine has it. There are a lot of things that went on, the whole situation. I think you’re surrounding yourself with some of the same people. I would like to have the Attorney General call you or your people and I would like you to get to the bottom of it. As you saw yesterday, that whole nonsense ended with a very poor performance by a man named Robert Mueller, an incompetent performance, but they say a lot of it started with Ukraine. Whatever you can do, it’s very important that you do it, if that’s possible.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that there is no quid pro quo here. Nothing of the sort was even implied. The Democrat leadership is so filled with hate that they seem willing to do or say anything, even if that means making their own base look foolish. There is also a contrast; President Trump continues to work hard for Americans and so far the Democrat-led Congress is doing nothing at all, except to collect a paycheck while making baseless claims.
Americans are growing tired of all the expensive absurdity exhibited by the Democrat leadership. Do you agree or disagree with the Americans who are tired of it?
It makes no difference to me
