Letter: Democrats have launched coup d'état against president

Posted

To the editor:

After three years of effort by the Democrats to remove the Republican President of the United States, the basis for those efforts was exposed as being totally unfounded. Their latest venture is to base their impeachment inquiry on a phone call with the Ukrainian President. A phone call President Velodymyr Zelensky has publicly stated, several times, did not include a quid pro quo.

The Democrats' stated purpose is to exercise their Constitutional obligation. When indeed, it would appear as if they wish to placate Hillary Clinton so she doesn't run again (a looming disaster the Democrat Party wishes to avoid), as well as, overturn the 2016 election and disenfranchise the 63 million Americans who voted for the president.

Constitutional obligation? Not so fast. The entire impeachment inquiry smacks of a partisan, political probe — a “witch hunt.” The intelligence communities' inspector general stated that the basis of the inquiry … an account of the phone call by a second hand, unidentified whistle-blower could have an arguably political bias.

The Democrats' initial hearings were in secret, while denying Republican committee members full participation. Now the whistle-blower is willing to answer written questions from Republicans and bypass Democrat committee chairman Adam Schiff. Very interesting.

And, more revelations will be forthcoming, but with a twist for the over zealous Democrat leadership. Be mindful that truth has another calling. That charges of sedition and treason will ring throughout the land. And all the evildoers who are attempting a coup d'état of our Presidency and Constitutional Republic, will find their way in front of the docket. It's going to get a bit crowded.
