Letter: Impeachment 2019

To the Editor:

Impeachment 2019 is happening because the Democrats could never accept their loss of the presidency in 2016 and they know, in a fair election, they will lose again. 

Under the sham of impeachment, the Democrats, fueled by hearsay and opinions and not facts, abuse the rule of law by running a supporting cast of biased co-conspirators against the president. Democrats are condemning themselves right before our eyes. Here’s proof.

Congress maliciously manufactures erroneous allegations, and because they can’t prove guilt, they challenge the accused to exonerate themselves. Congress speaks and acts unjustly with each attempt to reverse the law of “innocent until proven guilty.” Congress should be held accountable for the cost and the ridicule they unfairly perpetrate on innocent victims.

Congress did not demand President Barack Obama prove his innocence after firing dozens of sitting ambassadors, or for withholding aid and support to foreign allies, or for approving and supporting the undercover investigation into a 2016 presidential candidate, or for caging illegal immigrants, or for a $150 billion bribe to Iran. Abuse of power?

Congress did not demand Hillary Clinton prove her innocence for her illegal handling of government documents, destroying email evidence, destroying government property or lying about it. Fired FBI Director James Comey did not have the legal authority to exonerate Clinton from her crimes; Congress knew it and let it happen anyway. Above the law?

It’s very apparent that the Democratic elitists do put themselves “above the law” each time they misapply or ignore the law to seek benefits for their political party. Congressional democrats are proving to be partisan frauds that routinely abuse their power to unfairly attack their political rivals. Abuse of power?

POTUS is the commander and chief, including approval and veto authority over Congress. Congress’ oversight does not include persecuting POTUS for his policy decisions. When a conflict of authority arises between Congress and POTUS, by constitutional design, the judicial branch makes that final call, not Congress.

“No one is above the law.” Even after radically opposing the rule of law, snubbing due process and ignoring historical precedents, the Democrats will fail and lose again.
