Fight the impeachment, Donald



President Donald John Trump listened to Mitch McConnell and played nice in the first impeachment. He did not assert his God-given right to a fair trial in which he could have exposed to the American people the dark winter of corruption by Biden and his son.

The Donald went along to get along because the fix was in.

But that led to Impeachment II and the fix is in again. This time Republicans will vote against him and give Democrats the 67 votes they need to find the president guilty.

Official Washington wants to erase his presidency from history, and strip away his citizenship by blocking him from ever seeking office again. They want his head on a pike as a warning to others.

I told readers earlier that there would be a post-presidential impeachment after McConnell described its mechanizations to Republicans. At the time, news reports said McConnell somehow opposed trying The Donald. The opposite is true. McConnell is throwing Donald Trump to the Democrats. They will control his trial.

The impeachment is unconstitutional. Private citizens cannot be impeached, only officeholders can and then only to remove them from office.

The impeachment trial will be unconstitutional as well because Patrick Leahy will preside, not Chief Justice John Roberts. The argument will be that the chief justice presides only in the impeachment of a sitting president or vice president. Leahy as Senate president pro tem will be the Chief Kangaroo in this court.

After the Supreme Court rejects hearing President Trump's lawsuit to stop the trial, the Senate may simply vote without a trial. 

But if they deign to give the man a hearing, he should seek at least 60 days to prepare his defense. Time is on his side because the longer he is out of office, the more the public will view this impeachment as unnecessary, mean-spirited, and embarrassing.

After he runs out of postponements, he should call witnesses. 

The list should include Obama, who said of Republicans, "If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun." Trump's lawyers should ask him why he did not apologize for saying that after a Democrats tried to assassinate 9 Republican congressmen who were practicing for a baseball game with the Democrats.

Trump's lawyers should also question Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, and other prominent Democrats who engaged freely in calls for uprisings and confrontations.

Also, his lawyers should ask Pelosi why she offered not to impeach him if he resigned or Pence removed him by the 25th Amendment. If her goal was simply his removal from office, then why did she impeach him knowing this would not end his presidency prematurely?

The press will report their replies as besting Trump's lawyers, but the actual jury, which is the American people, may believe otherwise. The president does not have to win a majority of that jury. Rather, he needs to convince a majority of the Republicans to stand by him.

To that end, President Trump needs to bring up that first impeachment, and offer the defense that McConnell talked him out of.

The full speech at the National Mall should be aired. This would allow the nation to see what exactly the president said and to whom he said it.

Democrats want to try the case immediately, immediately, immediately, because they know any delays give people time to consider the absurdity of a post-presidential impeachment.

However, Democrats run the risk of delaying Chairman Xiden's reign. The plan is to hold the impeachment show trial concurrent with confirming Cabinet members and rubber-stamping his agenda.

Byron York asked, "But why should Republicans help Democrats with a kooky plan that would require voting to remove a president who is already gone?"

Answer: Because they hate Donald Trump and every one of the 75 million people who voted for him.

However, York wrote, "House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will again play games with the timing of the Senate impeachment trial. Remember that after the House first impeached Trump in December 2019, Pelosi held on to the articles of impeachment for a few weeks until she felt the political atmosphere was better for a trial. Now, she is holding on to the articles again, and there is nothing to stop her from holding on to them until April, or June, or whenever."

The delay is likely to be just a few days. She wants to wait until Chairman Xiden's inauguration, where he will swear to defend the Constitution; you know, that document that Democrats now claim was written to protect slavery.

But injustice delayed is injustice denied.

President Trump soon should start asking the Senate very publicly some tough questions. Who will preside over this trial? What will the rules be for this trial? Will there actually be witnesses and depositions or will it be a fact-free show trial?

The government and those who run it may no longer believe in fairness, but the American people do.

Donald Trump needs to fight for himself and the 75 million who voted for him.

  1. He better fight it or the false narrative will stick.

    He will not be convicted even if the corrupt courts allow this farce to continue after Trump leaves office.

    His bigger threat is all these leftist state AGs. They'll come after him for jaywalking.

    1. Oh, and to your other point, Trump is way too nice. He has a killer instinct with business (see what he was doing to China) but not political opponents.

      I don't know why that is other than perhaps some deep personal decency or sense of mercy. Why hasn't Faux-chi been fired? That's just one example.

      He delayed declassification until nobody cared. Years and years of "we caught them all" until people fell asleep out of disinterest.

      A bullet you won't fire may as well be left in the box.

    2. Also, Kurt Schlicter made the point that conviction might backfire on the Dims. To paraphrase: Why would you remove an opponent who comes in with 50% of the people wanting to vote against him? You do that and you just might wind up facing a more popular opponent.

      With whom, people like you? The story is out and the whole world knows it was the Lefties' doing. I have a feeling those Trump supporters murdered in the Capitol saw it was all phony and somebody was told to silence them.

      Too bad it didn't work.

      Schlichter is not the sharpest knife in the drawer and neither are you.

      Trump is loved for what he did, not who he is. And a lot less than 50% of the people voted for the lying dogfaced pony soldier.

    4. "Trump is loved for what he did, not who he is. And a lot less than 50% of the people voted for the lying dogfaced pony soldier." That was the exact point that Kurt and Big Jake were making. Maybe you should check your own edge. Just to be clear since your reading comprehension seems to be impaired, perhaps you are not the sharpest knife anywhere.

    5. Troll. First they do is pull out the reading comp thing. Makes them feel smart.

      And that's the opposite of the point they were making. Trump had a majority of the electorate voting for him, so the idea 50% want to vote him out misses the point of the last 2 1/2 months.

    1. It takes a while sometimes. It was 5 years between the Boston Massacre and Lexington. And the Warsaw Pact was not overthrown by force of arms.

      Fun fact: In 1940 being a collaborateur in France was not an evil thing. The Krauts weren't going anywhere anytime soon and it was just making the best of a bad situation. That changed in 1942 when Laval was ordered to start picking people for forced labor in the Reich.

      But fear not. The Lefties are aching for an incident to let them start confiscation of firearms. That's what I think the militariazation of DC is really for.

    2. Ed, splendid commentary. And it's a shame Don Surber hasn't been writing NY Post editorials for the past four years. That way, people would have been reading them. Oh well. NY Quisling-Post is now ranked below the leg-lifting targets of the dogs being walked, and that is that.

  4. The two impeachments remind me of the saying that history repeats itself, the first time as tragedy, the second time as farce.

    I also expect at least a few of the Republican senators on the confirmation committees to ask some hard questions to the cabinet nominees based on their prior service under Obama.

  6. The Democrats in GA, WI, MI and PA violated the federal constitution to defeat President Trump and in the state of PA they violated the state constitution as well. Yet state and federal courts refused to do squat. So why wouldn't the Democrats violate the Senate's procures as defined in our Constitution. No one or any organization will protect Trump or other Americans from seditious Democrats. The Democratic Party was the party of sedition with the Civil war and Jim Crow, so why should they change now.

  7. Keep in mind that this is all basically a set-up to distract from the election fraud.

    When did the "riot" (sic) start? Just as the evidence of electoral fraud was being presented. The "riot" (sic) put a stop to that, and when they reconvened, sure enough, not a peep about the fraud just lots of huffing and puffing about the "riot" (sic).

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. And Trump should be given opportunity to present the voter fraud evidence at his hearing since the dems accuse him of lying about that fact. He also should have opportunity to defend himself against the charges of inciting. I don't think dems want that to happen. It would be harder in the Senate to deny him his trial. I think they are more likely to delay and delay until the public is not looking.

  12. What President Trump needs to do is exercise his EO 13848 and invoke the insurrection act and Martial law. The military is in place in state capitals an dc and they can immediately arrest thousands of seditionists for military trials.

      As Don has noted, the donks have been for 4+ years like Wile E. Coyote, gooning up one line of attack after another. So you have to wonder if due to last summer's riots, they *did* stumble across his one "weak" (sic) spot - that's he genuinely peaceful, non-violent, and anti-violence.

  13. Assuming that articles of impeachment can be held until a later date, there is also another unlikely, but real, possibility.

    If by some God-granted miracle that Biden's election was invalidated, and Trump pulled off the unthinkable and resumed the office of President, it is possible the impeachment article is being held as an insurance policy, of sorts. Whether Trump staying in power were to happen by way of legal or illegal means, this will give them one last chance to remove him and still make it look like it's all his fault.

    To wit, the dems are likely covering their bets.

  21. Does anyone still doubt natural herbs? I've seen the great importance of
    natural supplements and the wonderful work they have done in people's
    lives. I wonder why people still spend their money on surgery, injections
    and drugs each time they are sick. Natural herbs can cure all kinds of
    illness. My Herpes virus was totally reversed with natural herbs this year.
    Earlier this year my sister who lives in New Delhi India Purchased HSV
    herbal remedy from Dr Omola and he told her that his HSV herbal remedy only
    takes five weeks to reverse HSV completely, which she didn’t’ believe, but
    she had no choice than to purchase, because she knew COLD SORES was killing
    me slowly. When I received the herbal remedy, I only used it for five
    weeks, it was so shocking to see the outcome, all my cold sore disappeared
    and my HERPES VIRUS was fully reversed. I know it is hard to believe but am
    a living testimony, There is no harm in trying natural herbs supplements.
    Contact Dr Omola for his herbal remedy today... Email;
    dr.omolaherbalhome@gmail.com Call/Whatsapp +2348118116254 for more
