President Donald J. Trump has officially been acquitted for both articles of Impeachment brought on by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
This was an inevitable conclusion. The only way the charges would stand is if they could prove intent, which the Democrats couldn’t.
That made the whole Impeachment process a bit of a sham. I now worry that Impeachment will become a tool used by either political party to drive a bipartisan wedge through the country anytime a president does something the other side doesn’t like.
Now, I’m not saying Trump was totally in the clear. He is a very brash individual and he tends to take offense easy and Tweet things without thinking them all the way through.
But, just like A$AP Rocky said in his interview with Charlemagne after getting out of jail overseas, Trump was a TV personality. This gives him a “Hollywood in” to anyone in foreign affairs. On top of that, he is a fantastic overseas businessman. That means he’s bound to have some pull in foreign affairs.
This also outlines why there is so much hate toward President Trump in the political realm. The Democrats, and quite a few Republicans, are pissed because Trump is offensive, and he doesn’t follow the typical rituals of being a President of the United States.
On September 24, 2019, the House of Representatives, led by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, announce a formal inquiry for Impeachment against President Trump.
This is the first step. It led to a lot of questions because the Constitution of the United States says in Article 2, section 4: “The President, Vice President and all Civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeach for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”
The House had their own meetings and finally named the House Intelligence Committee, led by Adam B. Schiff, to lead the investigation.
The need for investigation was odd to me because we had the transcript for the phone call in question with Ukraine that is available for anyone to read.
This led to the House to bring forth two articles of Impeachment. One for Abuse of Power and the second for Obstruction of Congress.
Next up was the vote by the House to bring forth the articles to the Senate or not.
In a surprising twist (I hope the sarcasm is palpable there), the Democrat-led House voted in a completely bipartisan vote to Impeach President Trump. Literally, only Democrats agreed that Trump did wrong. This happened on December 18, 2019.
It felt completely and totally farcical.
The media, of course, jumped on to this belief and bought in wholeheartedly that Trump was basically Satan.
What is supposed to happen after an Impeachment is the House delivers the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate to have an official trial.
Instead, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi held on to the Articles for about a month before she was finally pressured by the media and other Democrats to hand over the nonsensical Articles.
This didn’t happen until January 15, 2020.
The Senate trial, which was met with a ton of criticism from the Democrats and media for not allowing witnesses, concluded on February 5, 2020.
Democrats criticizing the Senate for not having more witnesses doesn’t make sense to me because why would the House vote in favor of Impeachment if they didn’t have enough evidence to support that claim from the beginning. If they did have enough evidence, wouldn’t that have convinced at least one Republican House member?
Regardless, on February 5, 2020, President Donald J. Trump was acquitted in the Senate.
Where the Democrats Went Wrong
I could say that the issues started with the 2016 debates. Hilary Clinton can’t stand up to scrutiny and Trump just demolishes her character in the debates.
The Democrats were crying and complaining the entire time.
Then after the election, which they thought they had so much momentum to win, the Democrats complained about foreign interference.
According to the report, Russia interfered in the election FOR BOTH SIDES.
I hate to break to everyone but when you are the leading power in the world, other countries have vested interest in who is the leader of the country.
After it was proven that Russia didn’t do enough to truly influence the outcome of the election, the Democrats jumped into claiming Ukraine was the problem.
When Trump tries to address this and asks for info from Ukraine, then he is the devil.
Instead of jumping to impeachment, what the Democrats should have done is go for Censure against President Trump.
Censure is described as a formal reprimand against a Civil Officer, in this case, the President.
Censure would have gotten a lot more steam, but it probably would have divided the country less. That’s a problem, I guess. It would have made a lot more sense for Censure to be brought, and it probably would have hurt Trump’s reelection prospect more.
Instead, the Democrats went all out with Impeachment.
The fact they jumped to Impeachment proved that the Democrats didn’t have the candidates to beat Trump in his reelection.
This has only been proven further by the Democratic Primaries because they have been run horribly and the debates have been so awful.
The Democrats are running on the claim that Trump is bad for the country and he’s immature. Instead of being the mature party, we have mudslinging from Democrats to other Democrats.
Freaking Elizabeth Warren is running on the platform of being a liar then accusing everyone of calling her liar.
Bernie Sanders hasn’t done anything productive in his entire life. Obviously, he needs to be elected President so that he can reward other people that want to be lazy and not really do anything but rewarded for other people’s hard work. That’s the communist – I mean Democratic Socialism – a platform he believes should run the country.
The Iowa caucuses just proved how incompetent the Democrats are right now. They said they want to run it because it will run so much smoother if they take the reins here. This has proven, AGAIN, to be wrong.
The State of the Union Snubs
To further prove the point of the Democrats being hypocrites, I will breakdown the problems with the State of the Union.
First off, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is to introduce the President. Instead of saying the correct words, “Members of Congress I have the high privilege and distinct honor of presenting to you the President of the United States.”
What Pelosi actually said was, “Members of Congress, the President of the United States.”
This was the first snub of the night.
President Trump then handed out copies of his speech. He doesn’t shake anyone’s hand, but Pelosi puts her hand out to shake hands with Trump.
It can be argued that Trump didn’t notice her hand until he started turning around, but regardless of the circumstances, President Trump didn’t shake her hand.
Which is pretty rude.
Pelosi returns that snub by not standing, in fact, none of the Democrats stand throughout the entirety of the speech, even when Trump is saying the good things that have happened. He praised both parties and none of the Democrats acknowledged it.
When President Trump begins to talk about the negatives of the Democratic nominees currently in the running, the Democrats start getting up and leaving the State of the Union.
Bernie Sanders is already not in attendance, which is a snub all its own. That’s why Trump attacked socialism so hard in his speech.
Some people are claiming that the criticism for leaving during the State of the Union isn’t warranted because Republicans were playing with fidget spinners during the Impeachment Proceedings.
That’s stupid because fidget spinners were designed to give your hands something to do and help you stay focused on what is being said. Second, leaving is a bit of a bigger deal than playing with a fidget spinner.
To cap it all off, Nancy Pelosi makes a huge spectacle of ripping up the transcript of Trump’s State of the Union Address.
All this is so contradictory to what the Democrats have been saying. They keep making the claim that they are the classier party. They say President Trump is so rude and not mature enough to be president.
I could be in the minority for thinking this, but it would be a lot more mature to be the bigger person and ignore the slights. Maybe make a statement about how it was rude to not shake Pelosi’s hand.
Again, there is so much wrong with what is going on that I could carry on for hours. I personally don’t truly align with either Republican or Democrat. Like most of America, I fall somewhere more moderate. The problem is that Democrats are now trying to eliminate rights guaranteed by the constitution and I’m strongly against that.
