What Trump Is Hiding From the Impeachment Hearings

The public impeachment hearings this week will be at least as important for what is not said as for what is. Congress will no doubt focus a lot on President Trump’s dealings with Ukraine and his secret plan to get that government to announce a public investigation of the man he considered his chief political rival, Joe Biden.

But think about what the president is trying to hide in the hearings. He has been blocking government officials from testifying before Congress, invoking specious claims of constitutional privilege. And while the Ukraine allegations have rightly captured the attention of Congress and much of the public, Mr. Trump’s effort to hinder the House investigation of him is at least as great a threat to the rule of law. It strikes at the heart of American democracy — and it is itself the essence of an impeachable offense.

The very heart of democracy! And impeachable itself! Though, if the Democrats who run the House weren’t having their moonbat investigation, that wouldn’t be so, correct? It’s not like they haven’t been calling to impeach Trump since the day they were elected, since they just can’t deal with losing the 2016 election.

President Trump has categorically refused to cooperate with the impeachment investigation. He has declined to turn over documents related to the inquiry and has instructed all members of his administration not to testify before Congress. Every member of the executive branch who has gone to tell the truth to the House impeachment investigators — like Marie Yovanovich and Alexander Vindman (and maybe Gordon Sondland, too, at least the second time around) — has done so in defiance of the president’s instructions. President Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, has refused to testify. Secretary of Defense Mike Esper, Energy Secretary Rick Perry, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and the acting White House chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, have ignored congressional subpoenas related to the investigation.

So, Trump is supposed to cooperate with an unhinged witch-hunt? But, let’s consider: these same media folks had zero problem with President Obama and his administration categorically refusing to cooperate with numerous House and Senate investigations of serious issues, real issues. Republicans didn’t even trot out the impeachment threat over these serious issues, even though Obama and his folks stonewalled, slow walked, and refused to cooperate constantly. Operation Fast and Furious, IRS targeting, and Benghazi were the big ones, though Team Obama did the same thing with other issues.

Let’s not forget that Obama and his team spied on presidential candidate Donald J. Trump and his campaign personnel, and then spied on them after Trump won the election. The Democrats and their pet media have zero problem with that, so, what’s wrong with asking Ukraine to investigate the corruption that led to the spying?

    Teach when Trump said that Mexico would pay for the wall, did you believe him?
    Why do you think Trump is afraid to turn over those documents?

    • formwiz says:

      Actually, they have. They’re paying for all those illegals that used to come right through they’re country. And they’re paying for all those illegals who didn’t get through and would have sent money back home.

      And Trump isn’t going to indulge Schiff for Brains in his fishing expedition. Right now, he’s got zip.

      @John the Bot

      John do you have an innie or an outtie? And if so do you think your parents planned that? And if they did why didnt they turn over the documents?

    Scathing cross-examination of ex-ambassador Taylor who quit because he didn’t like Trump’s policy.

    In short. Taylor met with the president of Ukraine 3 times after the call. Not one time was quid pro quo mentioned nor did the president say to them he was going to investigate the Bidens or Burisma.

    The prez of Ukraine did not tweet, Instagram or hold a news conference announcing he was going to investigate. The prez did not know the aid was being withheld.

    Zero evidence of quid pro quo from Taylor their STAR WITNESS and he also confirmed that when he met with Sondland that Sondland said there is NO QUID PRO QUO. The president doesn’t want that.

    so in short Taylor quit because he was mad at Trump withholding aid to the Ukrainians because of his concern over corruption and 5 billion US dollars disappearing when Joe Biden was VP in charge of Ukraine policy. The president of Ukraine did not even know about any of this. He never met the president, never set in on the phone calls and yet had 5 meetings with the President of Ukraine and at no time did the president indicate he even knew the aid was being withheld nor did he discuss the Bidens or Burisma.

    In short, the star witness is a shooting star that just flamed out!
