The Democrats’ warped thinking is actually a little frightening. After it became clear that the Democrats faced an uphill fight on witnesses, Democrats started with a new chanting point. According to Speaker Pelosi, President Trump “He will not be acquitted. You cannot be acquitted if you don’t have a trial. You don’t have a trial if you don’t have witnesses and documentation and all of that. Does the president know right from wrong? I don’t think so.”

Using Pelosi’s logic, there’s no need for acquittal since President Trump wasn’t impeached. You can’t be impeached if you weren’t allowed the right to counsel during the investigation. You can’t be impeached if you weren’t allowed to call witnesses during the investigation. You can’t be impeached if transcripts of depositions (taken in the downstairs bunker, aka SCIF) were kept offlimits to House Republicans while those testifiers testified in front of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, aka HPSCI, aka the House Impeachment Committee.

Speaker Pelosi’s vitriol didn’t stop there. After criticizing President Trump with her made-up, arbitrary opinions, Pelosi trashed his defense team:

“I don’t know how they can retain their lawyer status, in the comments that they’re making. I don’t think they made the case. I think they disgraced themselves terribly in terms of their violation of what our Constitution is about and what a president’s behavior should be.”

Trusting in Pelosi’s understanding of the Constitution is as foolish as taunting a cobra with quick movements. I won’t be nice about this. Pelosi’s understanding of constitutional principles is situational. She cares as much about the Constitution as she cares about the homeless in her district.

President Trump’s defense team didn’t need to make a case. It’s the prosecution’s burden to prove that the defendant committed a crime. This isn’t the United States of Hirono, where Republican defendants (think Brett Kavanaugh) are required to prove their innocence.

In the Constitution written by Madison, Jefferson and Hamilton, not the Constitution imposed by Pelosi and Hirono, defendants are presumed innocent. In the courts, the prosecutor has the burden of proving its accusations. Pelosi wasn’t finished with the misinformation. Here’s more misinformation:

“Some of them are even lawyers. Imagine that you would say — ever, of any president, no matter who he or she is or whatever party, if the president thinks that his or her presidency … is good for the country, then any action is justified, including encouraging a foreign government to have an impact on our elections. [That] is exactly what our Founders were opposed to — and they feared.”

As usual, Pelosi omitted a key part of what was actually said. In his presentation, Professor Dershowitz talked about 3 situations. One situation is where the president acts solely in the country’s best interest without regard to whether it helps him politically. That, he said was perfectly fine but fairly rare.

Another situation is the president did something for thoroughly corrupt reasons. Think Nixon demanding kickbacks. He said that’s a situation where the president isn’t above the law.

The third situation is where a president does something in the national interest but does it with an eye on how it’ll help him politically. Professor Dershowitz said that’s fairly common and is ok. President Bush used to say that “good policy is great politics.” Would Pelosi disagree with that statement? I can’t imagine she would.

The Democrats haven’t done a thing to make people more prosperous or more safe. Democrats haven’t done a thing to prevent human trafficking on our border or homelessness in our streets. San Francisco, the city that Pelosi represents, used to be one of the world’s most beautiful cities. Now, it’s literally a feces-infested dump just a block or 2 outside of the rich people’s gated community.

It’s time to throw these disgusting people out of office en masse. They’ve hurt the US enough.

    So, are any real sentient beings buying this load of crap? Seems like Pelosi wants to take a dump on the public airwaves, a la’ San Fran.

  • Chad Q says:

    They are all a bunch of ass clowns who only care about the power they get by making people subservient to the federal. When the poor, minorities, and white guilt rich people finally figure out they are being duped into believing that the democrats care about anyone, maybe things will change. Until then, orange man bad for another 5 years.
