To the Editor:
A value is a belief that one holds dear. In a previous letter, I explained that under our Constitution a president can only be removed from office for conviction of treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.
None of those crimes were included in the Democrats’ two fallacious articles of impeachment since the president, the victim of Obama’s scandalous plot to overthrow him, was not guilty of any of them. The “impeachment” action they took was, therefore, unconstitutional.
I also noted that since every federal employee, which includes the members of the House and Senate, takes an oath to support and defend our Constitution.
Therefore, every Democrat who voted to impeach the president violated their oaths of office. The people who run the Democrat Party, do not see the honoring of oaths as importance.
We, therefore, have nothing in common with people like Obama, Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff and Nadler. Since their goals (power and the disheartening and ultimate destruction of the middle class) and our goals (life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness) are incompatible, it is pointless and dangerous to compromise with them.
They live a life of lies, and they will expose themselves if they stop doing what they’re doing. They will never admit they’re wrong. They must be defeated, and now may be our last chance to do so.
Our Constitution, which was designed to protect us from the type of people who run the Democrat Party, states that a president can only be removed for the above reasons. Since they were under oath, the witnesses for congressional Democrats, when individually asked, said that they had no evidence whatsoever that the president committed any of the above.
The witnesses of the fair and impartial Democrats consisted of unscrupulous, partisan, left-wing lawyers and law professors, disgruntled unelected government bureaucrats who are ticked because the president didn’t follow policies that have been failing for decades, imbedded Obama intelligence and State Department holdovers who spied on, leaked and undermined everything the president was doing.
Since they had no evidence that the president committed treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors, that clause became an impediment to their plan to destroy our president and country, disenfranchise the 63 million people who voted for him in the 2016 election (that’s real voter suppression) and remove his name from the 2020 ballot, so that the American people wouldn’t be able to vote for him. The left is telling us we are not allowed to vote for the president.
In order to amend our Constitution, an amendment must be approved by two-thirds of the House, two-thirds of the Senate and three-quarters of the 50 state legislatures. A president can't legally be impeached for “abuse of power’ or “obstruction of Congress,” but Pelosi, Schiff, and Nadler, along with House Democrats, illegally ignored the process, and did.
Their lawyers didn’t advise them that they had to revise the causes for impeachment phrase to read something like this: "... only be removed from office for conviction of treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors, as well as abuse of power and obstruction of Congress,” and follow the above process.
These people don’t share our values. They have to be defeated.
