Oh this is going to be glorious.
As if there was ever any doubt, Nancy Pelosi just set her party on fire.
Just so we’re clear, this is about a phone call to a foreign head of state. All the president did was mention the name “Biden” and utter “do us a favor”. The liberals see this as asking a foreign power dig up dirt on Biden to help Trump in his election. Such an act would therefore count as an abuse of power and a threat to national security.
In order to accept Pelosi’s argument, you have to derive explicit intent. The transcript not only shows there is no evidence of any such intent, but that Schiff and Nadler will do anything to push impeachment. Schiff subpoenaed phone records for members of the press, the president’s personal lawyer, and the ranking member. This is almost unheard of; a chairman taking such egregious unilateral actions to push a false narrative. This is what Jonathan Turley warned against: Congressional abuse of power.
The leftist media has been silent on this abuse of power. After spending the last three years doing everything to take down this President, it’s no wonder they have no issue with the government abusing its power over one of it’s own. But because so many in the media have egos bigger than Trump, the reporter in question is not considered serious because he doesn’t toe their line, so who cares if a constitutional right is stomped on for that guy! Remember that the next time a journalist decides to lecture about slippery slopes.
For the first time ever, I will be donating directly to a presidential campaign. Here’s to four more years of Trump.
