Promoted from the comments section…superb response by Carol Lyman to a couple favorite Trump troll talking points: 1) impeachment is supposedly all about “overturning the results of the 2016 election”; and 2) “This entire impeachment sham is a ludicrous exercise in futility.” Take it away, Carol Lyman! – Editor
I have some interesting news for you. There is something called breaking the law and treason; something of which your Popular Vote Loser, Trump, is guilty. Numerous highly credible witnesses testified before the House that Trump broke the law and abused his power when he attempted to hack our elections by using a foreign government to dig up dirt on a political opponent. This is nothing less than tearing up our Constitution and even treason. Now, Trump is even more guilty by engaging in obstruction of justice by refusing to turn over a single document and disallowing more witnesses. Trump is obviously guilty because he is doing everything he can to disallow any evidence to be presented. If he were so “innocent”, then he would not go to the ends of the earth to block any and all kinds of evidence from being disclosed. He would gladly turn over all of this evidence if it exonerated him.Its obvious why he will not. And, the despicable GOP Senators are going along with this which means they violated their oath of office to conduct a fair trial.
The American people have the right to hear from the witnesses and know what is in these documents and yet Trump and his GOP cohorts desperately don’t want the public to know, because TRUMP IS GUILTY. Whoever heard of conducting a trial without witnesses and documents when there is PLENTY to be had, but Trump and the GOP Senators refuse to allow them into evidence? No evidence at all.
Oh, and by the way, there is a lot of evidence Russia interfered with our 2016 presidential election so it is highly doubtful Trump was duly elected. He was never legitimate in the first place. At the very least, it is undisputed Trump LOST the popular vote which means his occupation of the White House violates what most Americans voted for.
Furthermore, I don’t want to hear one word about “not accepting the election results.” When President Obama was legitimately elected, he won BOTH the popular and electoral vote, decisively. Both times. And yet McConnell and the rest of the Republicans, including their deplorable base, did not accept the election results. As a result, the Republicans in Congress-in response to their rabid base, obstructed President Obama at every turn when he tried to conduct his job and help our country. Even automatically filibustering dozens of Obama’s judicial appointments when the GOP was in the Senate minority and then stealing a Supreme Court seat when they achieved a majority. They never accepted the will of the American people when we decisively elected Obama twice. In fact, no one will ever forget when McConnell publicly proclaimed that their “Number One goal was to ensure Obama would be a one-term president”. And when that did not happen, they continued to refuse to accept the election results and continued to filibuster and steal judicial appointments until the end of President Obama’s term. Now we have someone occupying the White House who LOST the popular vote and whose electoral victory is seriously questioned because of the Russian interference with that election. And now, Trump has been committing impeachable offenses and then blocks any and all evidence for the American people to see.
I honestly don’t know how you Trumpanzees can honestly say with a straight face that this is supposedly about “us” simply not accepting the election results. But bullies project their own tendencies onto to others, especially the victims, all the time. I guess this is not surprising with Trump and his deplorable followers.
