Impeachment Trial Memorandum on President Donald J. Trump

Washington, DC...The Articles of Impeachment now before the Senate are an affront to the Constitution and to our democratic institutions. The Articles themselves—and the rigged process that brought them here—are a brazenly political act by House Democrats that must be rejected. They debase the grave power of impeachment and disdain the solemn responsibility that power entails. Anyone having the most basic respect for the sovereign will of the American people would shudder at the enormity of casting a vote to impeach a duly elected President.





By contrast, upon tallying their votes, House Democrats jeered until they were scolded into silence by the Speaker. The process that brought the articles here violated every precedent and every principle of fairness followed in impeachment inquiries for more than 150 years. Even so, all that House Democrats have succeeded in proving is that the President did absolutely nothing wrong. All of this is a dangerous perversion of the Constitution that the Senate should swiftly and roundly condemn.

To view the full trial memorandum click HERE.

Oh no, Trump's in trouble now. The Democrats put another Hardcore Hero to get Trump, this man has been a hero, and lood up to by Democrats everywhere for decades and has been feared by most of the Republican Party.
A true life legend and life long Democrat, Eugene Conner.
Google the legend.

    If you're going to post the Whitehouse's response to the Articles of Impeachment you should post the Articles themselves, to be fair.

    The interesting thing about the Whitehouse's response is that they don't deny anything that Trump is accused of. They can't, he committed the acts he is accused of.

    Republicans are scheming to sequester witnesses and documents. Also word has it they want to schedule 12 hour days, beginning at 1 PM each day so it will be difficult for the American people to watch their suborning of the trial.

    The Republicans are shameless. Thankfully the truth ALWAYS comes out, as even small children know. So later this summer as Parnas, Giuliani, Nunes and others are called to testify, Republicans will.be eating the s**t sandwich they will be passing off to the American people as the impeachment trial.

        President Trump will never be removed from office. The Democrats have never accepted the fact that the President won the election against the old bitch Hillary Clinton. The President has done nothing wrong and will continue to Make America Great!!! TRUMP 2020!!!

            Pelosi owns Trumps ass at this point, she must be absolutely laughing her head off.

            Regardless of the charade Republicans produce in the impeachment "trial" enough new evidence has been brought to light to allow further investigation of the Trump Crime Family through the spring and summer.

            Investigations into the stalking and conspiracy to harm Ambassador Yovanovitch, Nunes collusion in Biden dirt scandal, Giuliani conspiracy with foreign governments to influence 2020 election, and on and on and on.....

            Look forward to the truth to continue to come out and possible further impeachment charges against Trump, Pence, Pompeo and others this summer.

    BTW-its Connor, not Conner (Eugene "Bull") and if Trump is a racist he wouldn't appoint people of color working under him in staff, the Cabinet, and the SCOTUS (did I leave out any other department?). When I say color I'm referring to folks of ALL colors. You need to do some deeper research!

      Also, the supreme court does not work for the president*.

      Three co-equal branches of government here in the US.

Interestingly, not a single disagreement with what he's been accused of... because the president* did everything they say he did. That's clear. His only real argument is that he cannot be held accountable because he is the president.
If Obama had done the exact same thing, and then tried this argument, republicans would have been ready to hang him for treason. Don't let your hatred of the libtards blind you to Trump's actions.
