• Dems Breaking Rules, Scrambling for Reasons In Anti-Trump Impeachment Efforts

    Surge Summary: Democrats are breaking the rules that are supposed to apply during any impeachment proceeding and unsettlingly trying to create reasons to impeach the president.

    Impeachment is serious business.  Whenever any elected official, from dog catcher to president, is faced with charges that could overturn an election, it is vital that voters know the process is fair.  But what is happening right now in the House of Representatives is anything but fair.

    As we have noted before, House Democrats are not following the established rules of impeachment.  The accused has the right to cross-examine witnesses, subpoena witnesses and present their own case.

    We’ve done this twice in modern history — during the Nixon impeachment and the Clinton impeachment.  In both cases, there were clear rules to ensure a fair process.

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi, with the cover of a compliant media, has chosen to make up the rules as she goes along.  It looks like impeachment and they keep calling it impeachment, but House Democrats are denying the president the ability to defend himself as he would be able to do in an impeachment proceeding.

    So, yesterday, the White House sent Pelosi an eight-page letter explaining in thorough detail why the administration will no longer participate in this charade.  Under these outrageous circumstances, the president was absolutely correct to refuse further cooperation.

    But the speaker’s response should send a chill down the spine of every American who cares about the rule of law.

    Pelosi insisted that the White House’s failure to cooperate with her sham procedure “will be regarded as further evidence of obstruction,” which is an impeachable offense.  Translated:  “We have nothing to impeach you on now, so we’re trying to manufacture an impeachable offense.”

    Here are some additional facts you should know:

    • Ukrainian officials reportedly decided in February — five months before Trump’s phone call — to re-open the investigation into the energy company that employed Hunter Biden.  So why are Democrats trying to impeach the president for something Ukraine was already doing?
    • Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham is launching his own investigation of corruption in Ukraine.
    • We knew that the CIA operative who filed the complaint had a bias against Trump.  It was initially reported that he was a registered Democrat.  Then we were told he had a professional relationship with a “prominent Democrat.”  Now we’re learning that the prominent Democrat is in fact one of the 2020 presidential contenders.
