There was NEVER a question that the Democrats began their January 6th investigation with the intent to charge Trump criminally with an insurrection all to prevent him from running for office again in 2024. They have “recommended” that former President Trump should be prosecuted for his role in the Jan. 6 Capitol attacks. This was probably the worst possible thing the Democrats could ever have done to the country. They are solidifying their weaponizing of the rule of law for political gain. They have succeeded in reducing the integrity of the United States to nothing better than a banana republic where they routinely imprison political opponents for political objectives.
Now what? The Republicans get to impeach Biden for the real criminal conduct of taking bribes and using the power of the office to threaten Ukraine to fire a prosecutor investigating the very company his son was hired to put on their board. What about Hunter who is on film with cocaine? If he were Black, he would go to jail for at least 5 years. The Democrats are also now rushing through to reduce the penalty for cocaine. Obviously, they are doing that for Huner. What about all the people in prison for the same thing for decades?
This is all part of the collapse of the United States. Washington is disgusting. It is all about war and they must defeat their opponent regardless if it is good for the country. Perhaps now as we enter 2023, this political corruption is just going to boil to the surface. Even Mitch McConnel, a career politician who hated Trump because he wanted to drain the swamp, joined in to condemn Trump.
People laugh at Donald Trump for questioning the results of the 2020 US Presidential Election, where Joe Biden secured more votes than any other president in American history. How quickly they forget that the entire DNC rejected Trump’s appointment for the duration of his presidency. Remember – “He Ain’t My President!“The Democrats have denied previous elections for every political tier, and some refused to concede. They said Trump incited the January 6 protest by questioning the election results, as if they have never questioned the authenticity of an election.
EVERY election is always rigged! The only question is did it actually affect the outcome? Nobody will dare to actually launch a real investigation into that. When a Grand Jury in 1908 investigated elections in Chicago, they concluded that there was probably NEVER a fair election. It does not matter which side, for they all are in the game.
The real problem is all the claims that there was “no fraud” when that is impossible. There is ALWAYS fraud in EVERY election. They prosecuted people in Florida for filing votes for people who died. That is not the question. The question is did the fraud change the outcome of the election?
These claims that there was no fraud are simply false. They do not wish to admit that there is vote harvesting and the oldest trick is to vote for dead people. That has been the joke in Chicago for decades – more people vote than those who are alive.
The Democrats rushed to get this out before the end of the year because the Republics have retaken the House. The Democrats will use this to attack anyone who Trump endorsed and Republicans in general. This is a lame-duck publicity stunt for it would be fantastic to watch Trump on trial for such a thing. He would get to call all the democrats and Hillary for spying on him and Russia Gate. That would be standard to show that the allegations have been political. It would be the Trial of the Century.
This House panel that’s been investigating the 2021 “insurrection” for the sole purpose of preventing him from running for politics again. He can be a felon and be president. That is not the issue. They must call it an “insurrection” to prevent him from office using that prohibition against any southerner who supported the “insurrection” of civil war from holding office.
The Democrats have totally undermined the integrity of the House. They unanimously agreed to refer Trump for prosecution for multiple offenses including insurrection, which Rep. Jamie Raskin said would disqualify him from holding office, if convicted, which was the whole objective of the investigation. Why was it Unanimous? Because the four Republicans were voted out of the office or decided not to run. All were so anti-Trump that they are a disgrace to the idea of impartiality. They were selected by the Democrats to be on the committee because they were anti-Trump. This was political theater from the outset regardless of if disliked Trump or not. Try standing before a judge you is your next-door neighbor who hates your guts and see if you get a fair trial.
Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo.
Rep. Stephanie Murphy, D-Fla.
Rep. Elaine Luria, D-Va.
Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill.
Not one of these people will be returning to their office. These four Republicans illustrate why Trump was played for as a fool. There were Republicans who want the Swamp to remain as is – a better term would be a cesspool of corruption on both sides. These people have stabbed their own country in the back and are solidifying civil unrest and the demise of the country all for political greed.
I have heard some same that if Liz Cheney were on fire, they would not piss on her, they would only reserve that for her grave. What I can say is that I believe she is evil and the apple did not fall too far from the tree. Her father created the Iraq War and handed all the contracts to his company Halliburton, and when they wanted to investigate his firm, they resigned from their American domicile and moved to Dubai. And she was the vocal critic of Trump? Why? To protect the Swamp?
It’s the first-ever such referral of an ex-President in the entire history of the United States. Bill Clinton committed perjury and was never prosecuted. Richard Nixon was also to just resign. However, this is a political stunt for there is no obligation for the Justice Department to prosecute Trump. It would be a real circus if they dared and unleash serious civil unrest.
