***BREAKING NEWS*** After this article was completed, on January 17, the defense team of President Trump filed their initial legal brief on January 18, to refute the fraudulent impeachment articles submitted by House Democrats to the Senate, for trial. In this submission, his attorneys confirm the message of this article, that impeachment has become one of the leading strategies for the Democrats in the 2020 presidential election.
In their answer, they refute the charge that President Trump committed impeachable acts. They correctly describe the articles of impeachment as "a dangerous attack on the right of the American people to freely choose their president," calling the impeachment "a brazen and unlawful attempt to overturn the results of the 2016 election and interfere with the 2020 election."
President Trump's briefing to the American people on January 8 to defend his decision to order the killing of Iran's military leader Qasem Soleimani offered a glimpse into an ongoing internal battle over strategic policy within his administration. Trump asserted that he had made the right decision, based on intelligence that said an attack against Americans orchestrated by Soleimani was "imminent", therefore it was necessary to act immediately.
The frenzied dash by House Democrats to pass two articles of impeachment against President Trump demonstrates that its sponsors were fully aware of the weakness of their case, and also were fearful that allowing a full cross examination by Republicans of the witnesses who testified against him would reveal that there is no evidence to back the charges. At the same time, it further exposed the sense of urgency, among those behind the coup plot against him, to block his efforts to overturn the dangerous bipartisan geopolitical commitment to regime change and endless wars pursued by both Bush presidencies, Obama, and Hillary Clinton. Trump's insistence on engaging in peaceful collaborative efforts with Russian President Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping, which are bearing fruit, is correctly seen by the anti-Trumpers as a threat to their collapsing unipolar geopolitical system.
The vote in the U.S. House of Representatives on December 18, in favor of two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, has virtually no chance of succeeding in his removal. To oust him requires a two-thirds vote in the Senate, which will almost certainly not happen, as Republicans hold the majority there and remain firmly in support of the President. Further, the two articles, one for "abuse of power" and the other for "obstruction of Congress", were not proven, despite weeks of hearings in which the testimony of anti-Trump officials was largely unchallenged, as the Democrats in control of the process established rules which severely limited the ability of Trump's allies to present a defense. However, even with the limitations placed on them, Republican Congressmen poked huge holes through the farcical claims the Democrats raised against him.
Lest you, dear reader, think this headline is either wild hyperbole, or just plain crazy, read what House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said at a CNN town meeting on December 5, several hours after she announced the House of Representatives would draft articles of impeachment against President Trump. She was asked why she had opposed impeaching President George W. Bush, when he lied that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction, to justify launching the devastating war against that country. She admitted that, as Ranking Member of the Intelligence Committee, she had opposed the impeachment of President Bush, despite knowing that the justification for the Iraq War was fraudulent:
On December 5, following a whirlwind trip to Madrid for the United Nations' COP25 "Climate Change" conference, Nancy Pelosi rushed back to Washington, D.C., to announce in a press conference that the Democratic Party is now drawing up articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump. This comes after the release on December 3 of a 300 page report by Rep. Adam Schiff's Intelligence Committee, accusing Trump of "abuse of power", among other charges, and after a Judiciary Committee hearing, which featured three anti-Trump, highly partisan "legal scholars" who asserted that the Founding Fathers included impeachment in the U.S. Constitution as a measure to defend against precisely the actions taken by Trump in dealing with Ukraine! A fourth witness, Jonathan Turley, a law professor from George Washington University and a self-identified Democrat, dissented in his testimony, insisting that the "rush to judgement" against the President represents an "abuse of power" by the Congressional Democrats!
On November 18, in the midst of hearings by the regime-change coup plotters aimed at removing President Trump, the President was meeting with his Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell. For such a meeting to occur is highly unusual. Trump summoned Powell to the meeting, from which little of note has been reported. He tweeted afterwards only that “Everything was discussed,” while Powell’s comments were couched in the usual opaque Fed-speak, that future policy will depend on “incoming information that bears on the outlook for the economy,” and the Fed will make policy “based solely on careful, objective and non-political analysis,” blah, blah, blah....
To watch the non-stop media coverage of the Star Chamber/Soviet-style impeachment proceedings underway by Democrats and their London-based neocon imperial backers against President Donald Trump, one might for a moment be led to believe that they are acting with the best interests of U.S. and Ukraine's security in mind—especially because that is what they insist they are doing!
Yet, nothing could be further from the truth.
