The impeachment the Democrats are pursuing has absolutely no legal basis.
And Donald Trump has already proved his point.
Donald Trump has just one word to say on his upcoming impeachment.
If former President Donald Trump had actually committed a crime on January 6th prosecutors could easily charge him with a crime since he’s no longer President of the United States of America.
But the legal precedent shows that there’s no way that Trump’s words rise to the level of “incitement to violence.”
However unwise his heated rhetoric was at the time, he clearly states that he wanted the protesters to gather“peacefully and patriotically” and there’s growing evidence that the attack was preplanned.
The point of impeachment is to remove the president from office, not punish him after he’s gone.
This isn’t about holding Trump accountable for a “high crime,” instead it’s a partisan attack that is pointlessly dividing the country.
The Democrats filed an80-page brief that claimed that Trump had committed “incitement of insurrection against the Republic he swore to protect.”
However, the Democrats decided to forgo the traditional investigation that happens before impeachment.
Lawyers for former President Donald Trump, Bruce Castor Jr. and David Schoen, said in a 14-page filing that Trump’s speech was protected by the First Amendment and that the trial is “unconstitutional.”
“It is denied that President Trump incited the crowd to engage in destructive behavior,” they wrote. “It is denied that President Trump intended to interfere with the counting of Electoral votes.”
They stated that the impeachment trial should be dismissed because the Constitution “requires that a person actually hold office to be impeached.”
The Constitution demands that the Chief Justice shall preside over a presidential impeachment.
The Constitution (Article I, Section 3) states: “When the President of the United States is tried [by the Senate for impeachment], the Chief Justice shall preside[.]”
The fact that this impeachment trial is on shaky legal ground is underscored by the fact that Chief Justice John Roberts will not be presiding over the trial.
According to The New York Times, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) “said Chief Justice Roberts was uninterested in reprising a time-consuming role that would insert him and the Supreme Court into the political fight over Mr. Trump.”
Of course, the truth that everyone knows is that this impeachment isn’t going anywhere.
Only 10 of the 207 Republicans in the House voted along with Democrats.
There’s no way that the Democrats are going to get 17 of the 50 Senate Republicans to go alongwith their plan of vengeance.
Already 45 Republicans voted to dismiss the impeachment proceeding as unconstitutional.
The Democrats are dividing America for a piece of unconstitutional political theater that isn’t going anywhere.
