Democrats are trying to remove President Donald Trump from office with a case that can be dismantled almost immediately, according to one popular conservative commentator.
The president’s legal team has 24 hours to present their case, but according to Fox News, conservative pundit Mark Levin says they only need two. Levin pointed to the lack of fact witnesses on the Democrat side as to why their arguments will not result in the removal of Trump.
No first-hand witness
Democrats have presented no witnesses who have first-hand information on the July phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Head impeachment manager Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was recently exposed for falsely claiming that Democrats did have a direct witness confirming their accusations.
Russian and European affairs adviser Tim Morrison himself told lawmakers under oath, however: “I want to be clear: I was not concerned that anything illegal was discussed.” Still, Schiff tried to misrepresent his testimony in order to further Trump’s impeachment.
Lawmakers pushing impeachment have not been able to present a single first-hand witness who heard the call and would confirm their accusations against the president. Democrats have claimed for months that such evidence exists, but they have yet to present it.
This prompted Levin to argue that the case could be closed in a matter of mere hours. In a collection of clips, Levin compiled all the witnesses Democrats had brought against Trump.
None of those witnesses gave any proof that Trump did anything wrong. In fact, many of them confirmed the opposite. For example, U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland, when asked about whether Trump insisted on a “quid pro quo,” replied: “He said, ‘I want nothing. I want no quid pro quo.'”
After showing several similar examples, Levin said, “You won’t see any of that video — not on the Democrat side. That was a minute, 10 seconds [of video] — I don’t need 24 hours [like Schiff] … I don’t need three days.”
So much wasted time
It becomes more and more apparent that impeachment was never more than a political sham perpetrated by a Democratic Party desperate to oust Trump.
Democrats have been firm in their resolve to remove the president since he was elected. The so-called whistleblower’s claims about Trump were more than enough for them to launch an impeachment inquiry, but it’s all beginning to backfire.
The question now has shifted to when this circus will finally end. Even Democrats know they stand no chance of convicting and removing the president, so how much longer will Americans have to wait before our government goes back to tackling real problems?
