Impeachment continues. We all know that President Trump’s constitutional rights were violated during the initial hearings in the House of Representatives–he was not allowed to face his accusers, his lawyers were not allowed to call witnesses, and much of the cross examination of the Democrats’ witnesses was disallowed or limited. All of those things are in violation of the constitutional rights supposedly allowed ALL American citizens. Now the President’s defense team is making their case to the Senate.
Townhall posted an article today that lists six facts that were either misrepresented or omitted in the House Managers’ presentation to the Senate.
The article reports:
According to Purpura (White House Deputy Counsel Mike Purpura), there are six key facts that “have not and will not change.”
1. The transcript proves President Trump didn’t condition military aid or a meeting on anything.
“The paused security assistance funds aren’t even mentioned on the call,” Purpura said.
2. Ukrainian officials said they never felt pressured into investigating former Vice President Joe Biden or his son, Hunter, for corruption. They also said quid pro quo never took place.
3. President Zelensky and other Ukrainian officials were unaware of the paused military aide.
“The security assistance was paused until the end of August, over a month after the July 25th call,” Purpura said.
4. None of the Democrats’ witnesses say President Trump tied an investigation into the Bidens to the military aid or a meeting.
5. “The security assistance flowed on September 11th and a presidential meeting took place on September 25, without the Ukrainian government announcing any investigation,” Purpura said.
6. President Trump has been a strong supporter of Ukraine.
“The Democrats’ blind eye to impeach the president does not and cannot change the fact, as attested to by the Democrats’ own witnesses, that President Trump has been a better friend and supporter of Ukraine than his predecessor,” Purpura explained. “Those are the facts.”
What a colossal waste of taxpayers’ money this trial has been when everyone could have simply read the transcript of the telephone call in question. We need to vote anyone out of office who has promoted the idea that President Trump has committed an impeachable offense. I truly believe that the rush to impeach has more to do with the crimes of some Congressmen that may be revealed in the Durham report than anything President Trump has or has not done.
