Commentary: Does Anyone Really Think Impeachment Take Two is About Upholding the Constitution?

by Julie Strauss Levin


How precious it is to witness the same party that rejects the United States Constitution on a daily basis, now genuflects to and contorts the Constitution when it is convenient for their Democrat agenda.  The truth is the second impeachment trial of President Donald Trump has nothing to do with upholding the Constitution.

President Trump’s attorneys have clearly responded to the absurd Article of Impeachment.  Their answer on Trump’s behalf is clear and straightforward.

Put simply, and a plain reading of the Constitution by any grade school student will corroborate, you can’t remove someone from office who is not in office.  And, the word “and” means just that:  in order to be disqualified from holding office, a person needs to first be in office, then removed and then disqualified from holding office in the future.  In other words, you can’t be disqualified if you weren’t in office at the time of the impeachment.  What part of “and” does the Democrat party not understand?

And then there is the matter of Chief Justice Roberts declining to preside over the trial.  The text of the Constitution is abundantly clear at Article 1, Section 3, Clause 6 of the United States Constitution that when a president is being tried for impeachment, “the Chief Justice shall preside…” (emphasis added)

Instead, Patrick Leahy, who just happens to be the longest serving member of the Senate (Exhibit 1 for term limits) and is a Democrat will preside.  Details, details.

As for the horrific events at the US Capitol on January 6, they were just that.  Horrific.

But President Trump did not incite anyone to do anything.  What he actually said to his supporters was to “peacefully and patriotically make [their] voices heard.”  No never mind that violent activity was reportedly planned before January 6 by third parties.

An FBI Virginia field office shared with the FBI in DC information warning about potential violence and “war” at the Capitol on January 6th, the Senate and House Sergeants-at-Arms were warned about potential security issues prior to January 6, pipe bombs had been placed at the Republican and Democrat National Committee offices on January 5, and other inconvenient truths abound.

If it was about violence against America, then a whole lot of Democrats need to be impeached or removed from office. Just look at the playbook of the Left, from Biden to Harris, to Schumer, Pelosi, Waters, Booker, and others. They all applauded, championed, and rewarded violence for months on end. People were hurt, businesses ruined, and lives were lost.

So let’s cut to the chase.  The continuous, obsessive witch hunt of President Trump, the one non-politician who successfully took on Washington, goes back to the use of the “I” word from the day Trump rode down the elevator in 2015 to announce his candidacy for president.  Years of hatred and vitriol have ensued ever since.

We all know the truth of the matter is that this second bite at the impeachment apple is the left’s last chance to pay retribution for President Trump’s successes, and to prevent him, albeit unconstitutionally, from running for office again.  They well know that this attempt will be unsuccessful, but they don’t care.  They are in their sixth year of trying to destroy a man whose sole goal was to yank our exceptional country back to its founding principles where “we the people” had voice.

The media, Big Tech, and the establishment, march gleefully along with the Democrat mighty and Marxist-loving machine. It’s not about winning, it’s about sending a message of power.  And where is Mr. I-Want-to-Unify Biden and his giggling side-kick?  Busy wreaking havoc on every sector of our beloved country. They have no interest in truth or unity.  They couldn’t be happier with this week’s disgraceful and outrageous display.

    If Trump had instigated an incursion Angels would have destroyed the Capital for him because that is how much he is loved by normal, hard working, tax paying patriots. The capital would never stand a chance of survival if hundreds of thousands of people were told to invade it. Instead they were told to walk peaceable and protest as guaranteed by the First Amendment… “the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances:.

    Watching what happened is evidence of what happened and no more. It is not evidence that Trump caused it. On the other hand evidence, not presented, exists that the FBI informed McConnell and Pelosi, and did not inform the President, that their BLM informants told them an incursion into the capital was planned. If that is the case we could assume they wanted it to happen. Why? It is also known, and not reported, that Trump had 10,000 National Guard on standby and the mayor, among others, did want to use them. Again, why? When a crowd of thousands of people assemble, because of an ostentatious stolen election, prudence should dictate preparation for some unruly behavior. This was a crowd of hundreds of thousands. Every official that should have used the National Guard and did not want them present now want them in D.C. all the time.That in itself should tell us something. It really appears they want to create incidents to create drama which will then beget laws, which will also allow legal force to be used against regular Americans now branded as “White Supremacists”. This is an old trick used by activists for millennia. The Democratic Party is a “Red Activist Party”. This is no different than when Hitler choreographed the burning of the Reichstag, which is the equivalent of the Capital.

    As far as I’m concerned this is a sinister distraction to avoid dealing with massive voter fraud that the whole world is aware of. When politicians do something this insane look for what they are attempting not to deal with and coverup. If anyone wanted this to happen, it was not Trump. It was the enemy of the people. That would be the huge Swamp, the insiders, the elites, the Masters of the Universe, the politicians and their allies, such as China, to whom they sold out America, and her citizens, for personal profit and pleasure.

    The Democrats know all the above observations are true…they don’t care. The Democrats also know they don’t have the votes to convict on the impeachment charges…they don’t care. What they do care about is putting on a clown show for the people who did vote for Biden. In their minds President Trump is an evil genius who tried to destroy the county through policies of prosperity, job creation, and liberty and justice for all.

    And it will work for those voters, but not the rest of us.
