This new Trump 2020 ad calls out leftist politicians on their double standard for impeachment.
Ad Destroys Dems on Lies | Mort Collin
It was 1998, and Independent Counsel Ken Starr had just completed his report on President Clinton’s criminal activities while in the White House. He had outlined 11 charges against Clinton. Starr understood that precedent from the Richard Nixon Case had established the fact that a president cannot be indicted while in office. This is because the awesome responsibilities of the President of the United States supersede his having to deal with the burden of being on trial to face criminal sentencing.
Both the Special Prosecutor in the Nixon Case and the Independent Counsel in the Clinton Case had hit the nail on the head. They both understood what the Framers had intended by impeachment. No prosecutor throughout the United States can indict a sitting president. The Department of Justice can open an investigation into the president and recommend charges that the Congress can take up for impeachment purposes. The president can then be impeached by a majority in the House of Representatives which means he must stand trial before the Senate. Impeachment does not mean the president is kicked out of office. It does mean however that the president goes on trial, and the Senate decides whether or not he should be kicked out of office.
In President Trump’s Case, Special Counsel Robert Mueller recommended NO charges. He did say in his report, which was written by his deputy on the case, Andrew Weissmann, that he wanted to leave the question as to whether or not Trump had obstructed justice open. In the end, the Attorney General took up the obstruction of justice question and refused recommending any charges.
So as you can see, there is a stark difference between the Clinton and Trump cases. Clinton was charged with 11 felony counts. Trump was charged with 0 felony counts. In the video you see all kinds of Democrat politicians pushing back against impeaching Clinton, the man charged with 11 counts. These very same politicians are begging for the impeachment of Trump, the man charged with 0 counts. This is yet another reason why the Left are frauds. They live a giant lie via their rejection of legal objectivity. It’s all about hatred and power to them. History will be sure to tell their pathetic tale most properly.
This ad destroys Dems on their lies. The hypocrisy here is incredible, but I guess if they want to look moronic, that’s their prerogative.
