Whoa. We should get back on point. Sara Straw and Stan Ivie (Reaper, Dec. 12, p3A) continue to press for impeachment of Pres. Trump even though no crime has been alleged or proven. (U.S. Constitution Art. I, Sec. 4) Only the whistle blower (hereafter, w b) knows of the crime, if there was a crime. Since the w b has not appeared, the Democrat hearings have changed the accusations almost daily and all testimony was hearsay, a serious student who believes in American justice can only conclude that there is no ground to support impeachment.
We are brought to this point by: 1. There is no accusation under oath. 2. Pres. Trump is denied his right to face his accuser the w b. 3. There is no probable cause on record. 4. Pres. Trump is compelled to prove he is innocent when no crime is alleged 5. The accuser (the House Committee) us is clearly biased as the impeachment commenced immediately after Pres. Trump had taken office three years ago. 6. Rules of evidence are scrapped. 6. Pres. Trump is deprived of witnesses. 7. Pres. Trump is deprived of counsel. 7. No crime alleged and Pres. Trump’s Fourth Amendment rights is under attack.
Mr. Ivie cautions, “Don’t trust your cookies…” Here is the problem. If the impeachment is successful it will prove that Congress or any bureaucrat can attack anyone without cause and deprive them of any or all of their constitutionally guaranteed rights. Further, no president will be able to do anything to fulfill his/her duties because if it angers anyone associated with government, impeachment will be implemented. Is that what we really want for your children?
