Watching the unconstitutional House Democratic impeachment process – which
Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., has described as a “partisan clown show” – you
have to ask yourself: What are the Democrats afraid of?

If they had a good case, the Democrats would be proudly putting it out in
the open so all Americans could learn the facts that would convince them
to support impeaching the duly elected president of the United States.

In fact, the Democrats seem to have a pathetic case that keeps falling
apart.

After the Mueller investigation failed to find President Trump guilty, the
Democrats could have turned to legislating and fighting over real issues,
like health care.

After all, in 1998 we were faced with Independent Counsel Ken Starr’s
report, which charged that President Bill Clinton was guilty on 11 counts
including perjury, which is a felony.

If Mueller’s report had used the word “guilty” 11 times the Republicans
would have been forced to join in a serious investigation of the
president.

However, when Mueller did not use the word “guilty” even once, the need
for an investigation ended.

Then, as the Democrats squirmed under the attacks of their activists who
were determined that President Trump should be impeached just for being
President Trump, they found a new excuse to investigate.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif. – who was
consistently dishonest and wrong for two years of Russian collusion
stories – suddenly had a whistleblower who was anti-Trump.

The Democrats were ecstatic. They now had an excuse to make their
hardcore, left-wing, anti-Trump partisans happy.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., was so eager to appease the left
that she announced the investigation before Democrats even had the
whistleblower’s report and before they had seen the transcript of
President Trump’s phone call with the new, reform-focused Ukrainian
president.

The whistleblower was going to be the centerpiece of the case against
Trump. Except it turned out he had met with Schiff’s people before
submitting his letter. Then it turned out he had no firsthand knowledge of
the items he was complaining about.

Then it turned out there were a number of factual falsehoods in the
letter. Then it turned out the whistleblower was a Democrat who disliked
Trump. Then it turned out he had worked with then-Vice President Joe Biden
in the White House.

Now there are reports that after five different disclosures undermining
the whistleblower’s credibility, the House Democrats may not even call him
to testify.

This means that the person who was the excuse for the whole investigation
is now so discredited that House Democrats know he would be an
embarrassment and would make even more of a mockery of their phony
impeachment effort.

In some ways, the collapse of the whistleblower is reminiscent of the
collapse of the attacks on now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Big
opening smear, wildly hostile headlines, excited anti-Trump talking heads,
and then the balloon loses air, the case collapses and it is on to the
next dishonest smear.

The secret nature of the Schiff kangaroo court really means we know
nothing for certain about any of the witnesses or their testimony.

Consider the case of Bill Taylor, a very reputable senior diplomat who is
now the acting U.S. ambassador to Ukraine.

As Marc Thiessen reported: “Cellphones are not permitted inside a SCIF.
Yet somehow what appear to be cellphone photos of his prepared statement
were leaked to the news media.

Thiessen added: “But the full transcript of Taylor’s deposition –
including his answers to questions from Republicans challenging his
accusations – remains under lock and key in that SCIF. The president’s
counsel is not allowed to see it, much less be present at the deposition
to cross-examine the witness. So, Democrats are leaking derogatory
information about the president, while restricting public access to
potentially exculpatory information, all while denying him the right to
see or challenge testimony against him.”

The Democrats’ partisan impeachment inquiry is an un-American,
unconstitutional process that violates the due process clause of the Bill
of Rights

Yet despite the selective leaks by the Democrats, House Republican Leader
Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said that "in 90 seconds, we had John Ratcliffe
[R-Texas] destroy Taylor's whole argument.”

Yet McCarthy was gagged by the Democrats’ secrecy rules. "We can't really
talk about it," he said.

Ratcliffe flatly told Fox News there were new details brought to light but
said there was nothing that was "worthy of impeachment."

Ratcliffe went on to say: "The one thing that you find out in this process
is all this information is just like that whistleblower ... everything is
second-, third-, and fourth-hand information.”

The Democrats’ partisan impeachment inquiry is an un-American,
unconstitutional process that violates the due process clause of the Bill
of Rights. As we see in Iowa, accused murderers who are illegal immigrants
are being granted more protection of their right to due process than the
president of the United States.

Every House Democrat must be made to bear the burden of supporting this
kangaroo court “partisan clown show.”

Every House Democrat should be asked: “What are you afraid of that you
can’t let the American people see the facts and decide for themselves?”
--
No collusion - Special Counsel Robert Swan Mueller III, March 2019.

Donald J. Trump, 304 electoral votes to 227, defeated compulsive liar in
denial Hillary Rodham Clinton on December 19th, 2016. The clown car
parade of the democrat party ran out of gas and got run over by a Trump
truck.

Congratulations President Trump. Thank you for cleaning up the disaster
of the Obama presidency.

The Obama-led Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS)
approved Uranium One in fall 2010. With a little luck, we'll see
compulsive liar Hillary Clinton in jail before she dies.

Under Barack Obama's leadership, the United States of America became the
The World According To Garp.

Obama increased total debt from $10 trillion to $20 trillion in the eight
years he was in office, and sold out heterosexuals for Hollywood queer
liberal democrat donors.

Ya ya...good ole Newt!...a paragon of virtue and political wisdom

Newt Gingrich: The poor showing by Republicans in the 1998 Congressional
elections, a reprimand from the House for Gingrich's ethics violation, pressure
from Republican colleagues, and revelations of an extramarital affair with a
congressional employee 23 years his junior resulted in Gingrich's resignation
from the speakership on November 6, 1998. He resigned altogether from the House
on January 3, 1999.

...and don't get me started on his wife, Callista, with her peroxide blonde hair
helmet.
