Democrats holding Soviet-style show trial to overthrow Trump – not an impeachment inquiry

“After five weeks of letting House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., subvert the Constitution through impeachment by leak, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. was facing mounting pressure due to negative optics of the Democrats’ shadowy manipulated process. So she announced the House would vote Thursday on a resolution regarding the Democrats’ impeachment ‘inquiry.’

“Democrats, Pelosi said, are voting to affirm ‘the ongoing, existing investigation.’ In other words, the idea is to give a stamp of approval to Schiff’s Commissariat for Justice, which has been marked by no transparency and no due process, where elected Republican House members must be chaperoned by unelected Democratic staff members if they want to look at the evidence.

“Senate Republicans reinforced the argument with a resolution sponsored by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. The Graham-McConnell resolution demands Democrats end their partisan charade in secret and afford the president a fair and transparent process.

“Who will be running the show (trial)? Bucking precedent, the reins will remain in Adam Schiff’s hands. The same Adam Schiff who lied about evidence of Trump-Russia collusion for more than two years, lied about what President Trump said on the phone call with the president of Ukraine, and lied about his committee meeting with the ‘whistleblower.’

“What happens when President Trump called their bluff and released the transcript of the phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, proving nothing was improper? The Democrats changed the rules again, and retreated behind closed doors.

” ‘Ambassador, you’re making this much more complicated than it has to be,’ Schiff said, as he leaned on former U.S. special representative to Ukraine Kurt Volker, when Volker did not give Schiff what he wanted to hear and repeatedly denied that Ukraine felt any pressure to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden.

“By not releasing full transcripts of testimony, Democrats have controlled the flow of information to allow them to pretend fourth-hand hearsay about a phone call that is already public is a ‘smoking gun.’

“While Democrats promised more transparency, they instead restricted the members who are allowed to participate. Now instead of 110 members engaged in the process, Democrats have restricted access to just 22 members.

“Only after Schiff’s inquisition does President Trump receive due process. ‘It is at that stage when Democrats appear poised to give Mr. Trump and his legal team a chance to offer input on the case,’ the Times reports. A little late for that.

“Democrats are making a mockery of the Constitution. An endeavor as monumental as overturning the will of the American people deserves deference to longstanding rules and procedures…”
