The witch hunt to bring down the presidency of Donald J. Trump continues.
The Democrats are calling for all hands on deck to investigate President Trump. They have gone from DEFCON 4, to DEFCON 2.
They fear that their narrative is starting to be shredded. They appear to be getting out in front of the soon-to-be-released Mueller report because they fear it will not show any “collusion” Trump may have had with the Russians to fix the 2016 election.
They are in full freak out mode.
The latest example is happening in the House of Representatives.
On Monday, Chairman of the House Judiciary committee, Jerry Nadler, announced he will be requesting documents from 81 people linked to President Trump.
The people being targeted range from Trump’s business associates, to his friends and family. Federal agencies also are being asked to turn over documents related to Trump.
Essentially anyone that has any connection to President Trump. It is basically playing the game “six-degrees of Kevin Bacon.” Anyone that has ever been associated with Trump’s world will be caught in the crossfire.
Chairman Nadler has said that anyone who fails to turn over documents will be issued a subpoena.
You may ask: What exactly are the Democrats on the committee investigating?
They claim to be investigating these three areas: “whether the president obstructed justice by interfering with criminal investigations; potential corruption such as violation of campaign and financial reporting laws, as well as possible misuse of office for personal gain; and abuse of power to include misuse of the pardon power and attacks on the press, judiciary and law enforcement agencies.”
Translation: They are trying to fish for any crime they can find. They have no idea what crime; they want to stonewall the president until the 2020 election.
This is a massive abuse of congressional power. The House is not meant to use their oversight power to investigate the president whenever they feel like it; or because they don’t like him.
If they have evidence that a crime has been committed, then they should start impeachment proceedings now.
But they don’t have any evidence of a crime. They know that. That is why they are trying to muddy the waters by bringing all the people connected to Trump’s world in front of their committee.
They know that the media will report about the proceedings on an endless loop. There will be non-stop negative headlines about the president.
White House Press Secretary, Sarah Sanders, isn’t buying this garbage either. She released a statement saying, “Today, Chairman Nadler opened up a disgraceful and abusive investigation into tired, false allegations already investigated by the Special Counsel and committees in both Chambers of congress. Chairman Nadler and his fellow Democrats have embarked on this fishing expedition because they are terrified that their two-year false narrative of Russia collusion is crumbling.”
She is one-hundred percent correct.
The congressional Democrats are going after the president’s family and friends. That is a bridge too far.
If I was a Trump family member or friend, I would refuse to hand over the documents – and fight back. Take the fight to them. Don’t let them abuse their power for political gain. Take it to the media and counterattack them. Expose them for what they are doing.
This is not what the founders intended when they gave Congress the power to have oversight over the executive branch. They are not an investigative body—they are legislative body.
They are meant to make laws; not be a courtroom. We have a third branch of government called the judiciary.
Remember that branch, Democrats?
That is the branch that Justice Brett Kavanaugh works for. You tried to destroy his life, too!
The witch hunt continues. It’s time for the 81 people on the Democrats’ list to fight back and not stand for this abuse of power!
