    Surge Summary: The impeachment trial of Donald Trump has officially begun, and the more facts emerge, the weaker becomes the Democrats’ case against the former president. Those who breached security and invaded the Capitol building must be prosecuted, and perhaps too, those law enforcement officials who irresponsibly ignored indicators that trouble was being planned for Inauguration Day – but the now departed President Trump should not be convicted.

    by Gary Bauer   

    The Senate [Tuesday] began the second fake impeachment trial of Donald Trump.  [Monday], we noted that one major flaw in the Democrats’ case against Trump is that many of them are guilty of the very charges they are making against him.

    Here’s another serious flaw in their case:  They are accusing the president of inciting a riot.  Well, more than 200 people have been charged so far in connection to the events on January 6th.  Federal investigators and prosecutors are methodically building a case against many of those defendants.

    According to investigative journalist John Solomon, “A dozen FBI affidavits supporting charges against the more than 200 defendants show rioters engaged in advance planning on social media sites” with “early actions dating back to November.”

    And as we have previously reported, the FBI had advanced warning that some people were plotting violent actions in Washington that day. The Capitol Hill Police were warned about the potential for violence, and their request for additional security deployments, made two days before the rally, was denied.

    In other words, Trump cannot be guilty of inciting a “spontaneous riot” that other people had been planning for months.  Trump cannot be guilty of single-handedly causing violence that security officials in Washington knew was possible but failed to prepare for.

    If anyone should be on trial right now it should be the people who engaged in violence on January 6th and those who allowed it to happen by failing to heed intelligence warnings.

    Former Judge Kenneth Starr blasted the House impeachment of President Trump as a “huge, colossal blunder” in which many politicians “rushed to judgment.”  He is absolutely right!

    Beyond these basic facts, constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley argues that Democrats are violating the basic tenets of free speech.  “Trump did not call for the use of force,” Turley wrote.  “He told supporters to go ‘peacefully’ and to ‘cheer on’ his allies in Congress.”

    Case closed.
