Why Trump Can’t Be Impeached
The president of the united state, President Donald Trump, will not be removed from office after he has been impeached earlier by the House of Representatives.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has reportedly informed his colleagues they have the votes to bring things to an end this week.
Whether the senators end the trial this week or drag it on for months, the outcome is a foregone conclusion.
Here is the major reason why Trump will win his impeachment trial.
Trump Didn’t Commit Any Impeachable Offense
It’s obvious and the most important point.
Impeaching President Trump has been the stated goal of the Resistance since he was inaugurated.
The main effort toward his impeachment was through the investigation of a false theory of treasonous collusion with Russia to steal the 2016 election.
Even with an infinite special counsel assigned to achieve this aim, the Russia collusion prank ended with no single American found to have colluded with Russia, not to mention anyone close to Trump, or even Trump himself.
Other efforts of impeachment have as well proven abortive. With time running out, the Resistance made use of what has appeared as a weak theory regarding Trump’s phone call with the Ukrainian president.
The alleged crime, which was first supposed to be a campaign finance violation, went on to bribery, then extortion.
It ended with two articles of impeachment. None of these articles had an actual crime and one was a laughable claim that the president can’t use courts to defend his rights.
The other one was a complicated argument as regard abuse of power, which required not only hiding all exonerating evidence but the worst possible construction on what remained.
It was such a weak argument that no single Republican in the House fell for it and three Democrats didn’t agree to go along with their own party.
