Was Impeachment by Democrats Really Attempted Assassination of Trump?

As expected, the Republican-led Senate voted to acquit President Donald Trump of the 2 impeachment charges brought to them by the Democratic-led House. Since the removal of a president via impeachment requires a two-thirds majority vote in the Senate, the outcome of the trial was pretty much a foregone conclusion. On the obstruction of justice charge, the vote was 53-47, along party lines. On the abuse of power charge, the vote was 52-48 with RINO Mitt Romney voting with Democrats.

The entire impeachment proceedings of President Trump proved one thing – not that Trump is innocent or guilty but that America’s political system is severely broken, perhaps beyond repair.

According to Article 1, Section 3, Paragraphs 5-6 of the United States Constitution:

The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two-thirds of the Members present.

Judgment in Cases of Impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States: but the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment, and Punishment, according to Law.

Note that there is nothing in the Constitution that states impeachment may be used to remove a president solely due to political differences between ruling parties, but that is exactly what was attempted by Democrats.

It was early in the morning on Wednesday, November 9, 2016 (Eastern Time) when it was officially declared that Donald Trump had won enough Electoral College votes to secure the White House. By lunchtime, the same day, some leading Democrats in both the House and Senate declared they would take whatever measures necessary to overturn the election and remove Trump from office. They already began to speak of impeachment, over two months before Trump was sworn into office.

There was no mention of any crime committed by Trump, only that they opposed everything that Trump stood for and had campaigned on. They had put their hopes on the Mueller investigation, but after nearly 2 years of intense scrutiny, any damaging evidence pointed to Barack Obama and members of his administration.

When that failed, they searched for another reason to try to impeach Trump, but in reality, Democrats had no legal or constitutional grounds with which to impeach Trump on, which means that their actions amounted to the same as if they had tried to assassinate the President with the direct intention of removing him from office.

In fact, every Democrat in the House and Senate should be charged and convicted for abuse of power for willfully violating the Constitution and attempting to carry out a political assassination of a sitting President solely because they disagreed with him politically.

  1. Everyone knows what the democrats have done is wrong and a severe abuse of power, especially the highest ranking member Nancy Pelosi. We the people want to know when these criminals will be held accountable for their actions?
    These fake charges and the whole impeachment scam and all of the investigations that continue even today are costing the taxpayers millions!
    This money needs to be repaid from their Richy Rich lifestyles and used to build the infrastructure of America again! New & better roadways, housing for the homeless veterens, etc.

    • I agree! I think the Dems should have to pay back the 30+ million dollars they wasted! They make too much money to begin with!! I’m on social security disability and received a 1.6% raise which amounted to barely over $1 a day!! Congress gave themselves a 6% raise which was about $450 a month extra!! That’s much more than what I got for a year!! WE SHOULD BE GIVING THEIR REVIEWS AND GIVING RAISES!! (That is if they even deserve one)!!

  2. The above article concerning the constitution as it relates to President.
    My thoughts are, correct me if I’m wrong, how close was that impeachment to TREASON.
    They have been after him for over three years, they should be made to pay a price. The President has done a myriad of accomplishments that
    Not one Democrat complimented him, they said nothing. Should Democrats continue done this road they may cause permanent damage to our Country. That’s why they pay the price for their crimes.

    • I agree. It seemed more like an overthrow of the President so a few selected Democrats could rule the country. Why aren’t they being investigated.? Also , showing Pelosi tearing up a legal government speech was just plain disgusting.

    Seems both the Senate and the House ate filled with men and women who haven’t read or don’t know the constitution of the country in which they have power..and that is very, very dangerous. The Senate should have refused to even consider a trial for which the House failed to charge any crimes and none of the 2020 candidates for office against Trump should have been allowed to sit in any kind of judgement as they, of course, were compromised.

  4. I Totally Agree Patricia ~ You Hit The Nail On The Head~ Time to ” Clean Up The Mess”

  5. Since the Mueller investigation discovered damaging evidence that pointed to Barack Obama and members of his administration, they should all be charged for their crime and corruptions!

  6. Get on with it! Start the arrest NOW!

  7. YES IT WAS I THINK !

  8. Both the article and the comments are great and spell out what the Democratic Party’s m.o. has been since 2016. They would never allow it to happen to them. Yet they constantly attack Pres. Trump because they lost the election and want back the power they lost, so they can continue Obama’s disastrous policies. Everything they accuse the President and the GOP of doing they have already done, and do not want to be brought to justice. Biden actually did what Pres. Trump was accused of doing, all part of the Dems.’ double standard. Something needs to be done and passed to stop dishonest and runaway “oversight”. We the taxpayers should not be paying for bogus hearings/proceedings against our President.

    • It’s actually since 2000, when Al Gore lost because of the “hanging chads” in Florida.

      The Democrats’ primary objective for nearly 20 years has been to so alter the political demographics of this country that they will never lose control of the government. For them, immigration isn’t about compassion, it’s about bringing in more people who will vote for Democrats. In some places, immigrants who aren’t citizens are allowed to vote, and the number of localities where this is the case is increasing. If Sanders becomes president, it’s possible that we’ll see a push to enable non-citizens to vote everywhere. We hear about gerrymandering in Pennsylvania, where it benefited Republicans, but not about Illinois, Maryland, and Massachusetts where Democrats benefit, never mind California: They would rather Pennsylvania be gerrymandered in their favor by creating districts that radiate into the suburban and rural areas from overwhelmingly-Democratic Philadelphia, depriving the heavily Republican residents of those non-urban areas of representation in Congress. They would like to eliminate the Electoral College so urban voters will determine outcomes, just as they did in 1960 when Chicago’s Mayor Dailey submitted enough false votes to enable John Kennedy to win. Pretty much everything in HR1 is designed to provide electoral advantages to Democrats. Barack Obama’s election is just part of this process.

      The link to the recent impeachment saga is that expectations about Hillary’s inevitable victory were dashed. The Steele Dossier appeared right when the first inklings that she might lose arose, and Steele worked for the firm she had hired to do opposition research. The role of Director Comey in all this needs to be understood: The investigation into Hillary’s home server and the deleted 30000 emails was suspended when evidence began to turn up about what was in those emails. All you have to do is hypothesize that they included discussion of the Steele Dossier before Steele went public and the issue arises of whether the Democrats were trying to frame Trump (or possibly any Republican candidate in 2016) by manufacturing evidence of collusion, or entrapping their opponent.

  9. It’s nothing that a RECALL or Elections can’t cure . . . Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  10. All Democrats are talking about President Trump dividing the country the media has to run adds for previous presidents talking about uniting the the country calling on Americans to unite. So it has been a problem for years . He has strong policies which Democrats hate because they are so corrupt

  11. The Democrats are proud of their corruptions.
    They can’t all be corrupt.
    Oh wait!
    Yes they can.
