(Tea Party 247) – Last week, patriots across America shared a collective eye-roll as Nancy Pelosi unveiled her ornate, commemorative pens for herself and her colleagues to sign the Articles of Impeachment against the president.
Then the slow, dramatic walk through the Capitol Building to carry the articles, which no doubt could have been run over by a page in about five minutes with significantly fewer cameras present.
But the Democrats had to have their pomp and circumstance, and Nancy Pelosi was clear after the fact that she wants the president to know that he is impeached forever.
Meaning, Trump will always go down in history as the third president to be impeached.
For a phone conversation that he was completely transparent about and that not one Deep State lackey could even come up with evidence to indicate contained any criminal action or wrongdoing.
They’ve got their place in the history books, the Democrats do.
But that’s about all they’ll get.
Because not only is their impeachment going to fail, but when history students of future generations compare the Clinton and Trump impeachment trials, they will undoubtedly (if they’re taught honestly, at least, which if the leftists continue to have their way in the public school system, is entirely too hard to tell) see that the Trump impeachment pales in comparison to the impeachment of a man who had sexual relations with a woman decades younger than him in the Oval Office and then freely lied to the American people about it.
As The Gateway Pundit points out, “The Trump impeachment sham is unique in a number of different ways compared to previous impeachments and most notably because no crime was committed or defined.”
President Trump is accused of two offenses, neither is a crime.
Article One: Abuse of Power — broad and undefined non-criminal action.
Article Two: Obstruction of Congress — Not a crime and completely made up charge.
Now let’s compare that to 1998’s Clinton impeachment.
Clinton was accused of 11 separate felonies and impeachable offenses.
The Starr Report, presented on Sept. 9,1998, presented 11 impeachable offenses. Bill Clinton was eventually charged because he “…willfully provided perjuries, false and misleading testimony to the grand jury,” and made “…corrupt efforts to influence the testimony of witnesses and to impede the discovery of evidence.”
The Starr report cited 11 specific possible grounds for impeachment in four categories:
-Five counts of lying under oath
-Four counts of obstruction of justice
-One count of witness tampering
-One count of abuse of constitutional authority
