Time is running out for House Managers in their quest to impeach Donald Trump and undo the 2016 Election. They have tried everything to discredit and embarrass the president, who has steadfastly deflected his opponents on social media and with noteworthy success dealing with the economy, trade and diplomacy. You may not like Trump’s style, but he has gotten many things done in recent months.
You can always tell when the opposition is getting frustrated. The whining and exasperation grows, their facts become more muddled and they ask questions like, “how can 65 million Americans be so stupid and support Trump.” It’s never the shortcomings of the opposition; failure is always someone else’s fault or an inability to grasp the “facts.”
The White House counsels have been eating Schiff’s and Nadler’s lunch, especially during the questioning on Wednesday. The House Managers looked like first year law students and rank amateurs. Their grasp of facts, not innuendo, second hand gossip and hyperbole, was seriously deficient.
Professor Dershowitz has many people thinking that Trump’s behavior, although brash, dangerous, un-statesmanlike and insulting, was in no way impeachable. All of the conversations the president had regarding Ukraine might have been disturbing, but not enough so for him to be convicted and ousted from office.
Frankly, it was sad and pathetic to see Schiff and Nadler go head to head with Dershwitz. The latter has been teaching law for 50 years. The congressmen were way out of their league.
But it didn’t stop there. The White House counsel provided devastating testimony that clearly indicates that Trump should not be impeached and convicted by providing, what else, facts and quotes from House witnesses. The White House guys and gal bludgeoned the Dems with irrefutable truth. Law students will be studying their arguments for years to come.
But the real kicker is that there is no proof that Trump traded missiles for investigation of the corrupt Biden family, and keeping presidential conversations for security reasons is not a crime.
Give it up Schumer. You lost big time. The presidential election is a lock for Trump. You should spend your time trying to minimize losses in Congress for the next nine months.
