Democrats and a small group of ‘Never Trumper’ GOP members are having an impeachment show trial for the public with the obvious goals of shaming President Donald J. Trump for his pro-American policy agenda by creating an appearance that Trump’s calls for investigations into the crazy 2020 Presidential election caused his supporters to be violent.
The elites in DC who are behind the antics conveniently ignore that Trump did nothing that has not been done before in DC when he called for scrutiny of the election.
"The most combustible thing you can do in a democracy is convince people that an election doesn't count," Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX) says as House impeachment managers deliver their opening arguments, "especially if what you're saying are lies."pic.twitter.com/3W7QV5oFPk

Perhaps it was the reaction that Trump got from his political opponents, all career politicians, that caused violence if anything, did. Not only was Trump’s concerns never respectfully addressed, but the cabal behind the impeachment is also lying about the past behavior of the very people sitting in judgment of Trump now.
DEMOCRATS FOUGHT CERTIFICATION OF TRUMP’S ELECTORAL COLLEGE VICTORY IN 2017
In fact, it was the lead impeachment manager, Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD), who fought the certification of electoral votes from Florida in 2017. While attempting to prevent then-President-elect Donald Trump from assuming office, Raskin argued several Florida electors were “not lawfully certified.”

DEMOCRATS DON’T CARE ABOUT ETHICS
The impeachment show is so corrupt that one of the House Managers who lied about Trump’s behavior was himself compromised by having a personal relationship with a known Communist Spy.
Eric Swalwell, a lawmaker successfully targeted by a Chinese spy, is now leading arguments for Trump’s conviction at the Senate trial.
His inclusion on this team + his continued perch on the intelligence committee = bad, baffling moves by Democratic leadership.

DEMOCRATS DO WANT PEOPLE TO SUBMIT TO THEIR AUTHORITY
Mollie Hemingway, a journalist with The Federalist, reported that reaction from the impeachment show trial was that some Senators felt they were being forced into a “re-education camp” meant to change their support of Trump’s pro-American policies.
Democrat House managers seem to be arguing that if you say a word about election fraud (which is a very real occurrence) you are committing violence. That's not at all American. As one Senate staffer comments, "This is a forced re-education camp for Senators on election fraud."

US Representative Jim Jordan from Ohio made a note of the Democrat’s hypocrisy on Wednesday.
The message was clear to lawmakers that the Democrats can do whatever they want, and Republicans will face the fate of the lies, drama, and double standards of the left.
Democrats objected to the certification of electoral college votes from 10 states on January 6, 2017.
They didn’t mention that in their #impeachment presentation today.

The message from DC is that Trump and his supporters are out of control for contesting the election.
However, Democrats contested President Donald J. Trump’s electoral college victory, yet there was no hysterical drama over it. There was no outrage over it. There were no public show trials or crying about it.
“A challenge by several House Democrats to Donald Trump’s election on Friday collapsed when they failed to persuade a single Democratic senator to join their protest,” Politico wrote in 2017.
“The short-lived, doomed-from-the-start effort — spearheaded by Reps. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas and Barbara Lee of California — came during a joint meeting of the House and Senate to certify Trump’s Electoral College victory. Without sufficient support to challenge Trump’s victory, the Republican-led Congress moved ahead with an easy confirmation of Trump’s presidency. The only remaining step is for him to take the oath of office on Jan. 20,” Politico reported in 2017.”
From The Hill:
There was no expectation that the protests would succeed — backers acknowledged that the Republican-led House and Senate would never act to impede Trump’s imminent presidency. But it’s a continuation of efforts by Democrats to poke Trump in the eye before he takes office and undermine what his team has described as a “mandate” to govern. Democrats have routinely cited Trump’s 2.9 million-ballot popular vote loss to Hillary Clinton and pounced on Russian meddling in the election to undermine Trump’s victory.
Jackson Lee and her allies argued that widespread voter suppression in states won by Trump tarnished the results. They also pointed to research provided by a team of independent lawyers that found dozens of Republican electors were technically ineligible to serve. But their arguments failed to persuade their Senate colleagues to step forward.”
So,” Voter fraud” is ok for Democrats to talk about, but not Republicans. Isn’t that convenient?
