When the history books get written about this impeachment, the record won’t be complete without mentioning the facts that a) the House Democrats didn’t meet their evidentiary burden, b) this was the most partisan impeachment in this nation’s history and that c) Democrats attempted to flip the burden of proving innocence to the accused rather than insisting that the accused is presumed innocent until proven guilty.

For all of Speaker Pelosi’s BS about Democrats doing their constitutional responsibilities, the truth is that Democrats failed at guaranteeing everyone’s civil rights. Let’s remember that the precedents set during the 2 House impeachment investigations in the Twentieth Century were totally ignored by House Democrats. This wasn’t fair in any sense of the word.

What’s worst is that the exculpatory evidence produced by Republicans was thrown out or ignored by Democrats. When Republicans on the House Intel Committee blew gaping holes in the Democrats’ star testifiers’ testimony, Adam Schiff ignored those inconsistencies like they didn’t exist. Had this taken place in a court of law, the case would’ve gotten thrown out the minute the Democrats finished calling witnesses.

That’s because Democrats only called one witness who actually spoke with President Trump. That’s Ambassador Sondland. Lt. Col. Vindman listened in on the call and quibbled a little with the transcript. Lt. Col. Vindman testified that he objected to parts of the call but his boss overruled him on that. In short, the Democrats’ case has more holes in it than a block of Swiss cheese.

Democrats insist that witnesses need to be called for it to be a fair trial. Due process was written into the Bill of Rights to protect the accused. It wasn’t written to protect the government. I won’t be lectured by Sen. Schumer, Speaker Pelosi, Chairman Schiff, Chairman Nadler or Chairman Jefferies on integrity. None of them have any of that virtue. They’re nothing more than a collection of partisan hacks who put partisanship ahead of patriotism.

Democrats read off the same script, whether they’re talking about Iran, the economy, impeachment or anything else. If the information changes, like it did this week with Iran, they just continue with the same script. At last night’s Democrat presidential debate, when the candidates were asked about Iran, the candidates each insisted that President Trump had isolated us from our allies.

These stiffs said that despite the fact that the British, French and Germans notified Iran that they’d better get back into compliance with the JCPOA or they’d snap tougher sanctions on. That doesn’t sound like the US is isolated. That sounds like a nation with stout-hearted allies.

That didn’t matter to Democrat activists. That’s because they don’t care about being right. Democrats just care about reciting their talking points correctly. Whether it’s evidence in an impeachment trial or the truth on a debate stage, Democrats are indifferent towards those things.

It’s been that way for almost 30 years. When Anita Hill testified against Justice Thomas, Democrats said it didn’t matter whether it was true or not. What mattered was the seriousness of the charges.
