Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, and their jackal pack are already howling that a Senate trial dismissal vote or a trial without witnesses amounts to a “cover-up.” We don’t care what they think. But we must care very seriously about what Americans think, and Americans have not heard the president’s defense against the bogus charges because the House Democrats forbade this basic fairness. The Senate trial is his perfect chance to destroy the Democrats’ sham impeachment.
If most Americans knew about the vicious covert war waged by anti-Trump officials at the highest levels of our revered security agencies to usurp the presidency, they would be outraged. Poll numbers would reflect their overwhelming disgust with the powerful weasels at the DOJ, CIA, FBI, maybe even the FISA court, working hard undercover to undo an election that Trump won overwhelmingly.
But most Americans have busy lives, and when they do tune in, they mostly hear the leftstream media’s Trump-hating desk-pounders who deliberately ignore the Deep State conspiracy to annihilate the president. And the usurpers’ tangled web is so wicked complicated that following it requires a flow chart that would cover several walls.
So there’s no way to know how many millions of Americans actually believe that Adam Schiff’s lying “parody” of the Trump/Zelensky phone call is what the president really said: “You better listen good. I want you to make up dirt on my political opponent, understand? Lots of it. … [Y]ou know what I’m asking, and so I’m only going to say this a few more times…and by the way, don’t call me again. I’ll call you when you’ve done what I asked.” This is not anything like what Trump actually said.
For many, this malicious fiction, which Schiff presented as if he were reading a transcript, is the first and only version of the phone call they’ve heard. Schiff’s obvious goal was to make Trump sound like a Sopranos mob boss ordering a hit job. That the call was a perfectly legitimate question about Ukraine (and, yes, Biden) corruption before the president’s release of U.S. aid — this reality is totally lost on many millions. That’s why, if the president is to be entirely cleared, the Senate trial needs witnesses for the defense.
The president has been impeached. During that process, he was not allowed by the hater mob of Democrats who rule the House committees to call witnesses in his defense. Thus, the Senate trial will be his only opportunity to present witnesses to exonerate him in front of a watching nation and in fact a world gripped by the historic televised proceedings. It’s an opportunity he and his defense team must seize with his typical enthusiasm and masterful political savvy.
Here’s a partial list of schemers and plotters whose witness testimony will shock the public as the rotten layers of the plot are peeled back from its poisonous beginnings (legal team, feel free to add):
- John Brennan (CIA)
- James Clapper (FBI)
- James Comey (FBI)
- Andrew McCabe (FBI)
- Peter Strzok (FBI)
- Lisa Page (FBI)
- the whistleblower (a CIA operative who helped gin up the Trump/Russian collusion fantasy and can reveal how he worked during the Obama years with then–vice president Joe Biden, and then–CIA director Brennan as well as “huddling for guidance” with the staff of House Intel Committee Chair Adam Schiff while the House impeachment was actually underway)
- Adam Schiff himself (testifying about his and/or his staff’s collusion with the whistleblower)
- the Democratic National Committee (DNC)
- their law firm Perkins Coie
- Hillary Clinton campaign operatives
- Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS, who with the previous three parties together conspired to fund and commission the phony Steele dossier
- Christopher Steele (onetime FBI source who created the dossier)
- Bruce Ohr (associate deputy A.G.) and wife Nellie (Fusion GPS operative)
- the unnamed Steele “subsource” who is quoted in I.G. Horwitz’s report as saying “‘that Steele misstated or exaggerated (source’s) statements in multiple sections of the reporting’ (p. 187). The salacious claims about Mr. Trump were ‘rumor and speculation,’ offered in ‘jest.’ What (the source) had passed along to Steele ‘was just talk,’ ‘word of mouth and hearsay’ that Steele’s source had acquired from ‘friends over beers'” (p. 187–88).
In other words, the inflammatory, licentious, vile Steele dossier that started a four-year nightmare to depose a president, obtain fraudulent FISA spying warrants on innocent Americans, and ruin the lives of Trump allies like Carter Page was just a farcical spew of drunk talk. Do you think Americans would be interested in that sobering fact?
And how about calling forth the big kahuna — Barack Hussein Obama himself, under whose regime this whole scheme was birthed? He needs to be asked what he meant by a 09/02/16 Lisa Page (FBI) text in which she told lover Peter Strzok (FBI) “potus wants to know everything we’re doing”? Hmmm.
Subpoenaing witnesses in the trial has a yummy bonus beyond laying bare the subversive lefty coup conspiracy. That’s perjury. Most of these witnesses will necessarily lie to the Senate under oath, opening themselves to perjury prosecution, especially when federal prosecutor John Durham releases his investigative report, much of which will likely contradict their testimony. Durham is reportedly already “scrutinizing” Brennan, Clapper, Strzok, Steele, and Comey. Big fun ahead!
But wait — there’s more! If the trial goes on for several weeks, which it will if witnesses are called, the senators running for president (Sanders, Warren, and Klobuchar) will be stuck to their chairs by the superglue called the Constitution, unable to campaign for the critical upcoming Iowa caucuses and other important contests. This ironically Nancy Pelosi–imposed paralysis could well result in Joe Biden landing the Democrat presidential nomination, especially since he’s already leading in most polls. Thank you, Nancy — oh, please do throw us into that Biden briar patch!
Biden’s role in enriching his relatives (not just Hunter) by creatively corrupt means during his decades in government will bubble to the top of his stinky stew of a campaign. That tape of him bragging about threatening Ukraine to withhold a billion dollars in aid unless the prosecutor looking into son Hunter’s Burisma gas company was fired — that tape it will be everywhere like a pillow commercial.
So let the Democrats subpoena John Bolton and Mick Mulvaney. We know why the House didn’t do so during the impeachment — they knew that Trump would invoke executive privilege, and he would likely prevail. Executive privilege has a well established legitimate pedigree starting with President George Washington. It’s been invoked by many presidents in order to preserve the confidentiality of the Executive and the integrity of the separation of powers. It operates under the commonsense principle that the president must have some guarantee of confidentiality in his dealings with foreign leaders and his discussions with close advisers like Chief of Staff Mulvaney and former national security adviser Bolton.
It’s meant to make sure one branch of government — say, the Legislature — can’t wield limitless power over the Executive. The only executive privilege claim that ever went to the Supreme Court and was denied was when Nixon refused to release his recorded conversations during the Watergate investigation.
Senators, subpoena the jackal pack and expose the evil coup to overturn our presidential election. Go full Trumpian!
