An unconstitutional impeachment

Democrats have dashed my hopes for an impeachment trial that will allow President Donald John Trump to clear his name finally. I read the two "articles of impeachment" and discovered to my dismay that they are not criminal charges.

The Constitution requires a criminal charge. Article II, Section 4 states, "The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors."

The president must break a law to be impeached.

The Schiff-Nadler impeachment cites no federal statute that he violated. Instead, Democrats made up 2 charges: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Those are not crimes. Those are phrases. Here, read it. The nothing burger does not even have a bun.

There is no bribery, no extortion, no obstruction of justice, or any other crime. Not even a tearing the tag off a mattress.

Last week, 3 law professors stated as a fact -- under oath -- that President Donald John Trump committed impeachable crimes.

OK, I showed the man, show me the crime. There are no criminal charges; therefore, the professors perjured themselves.

Robert Ray, a former federal prosecutor, told Fox News, "My first reaction to that is despite what you just heard from Chairman Nadler, neither one of those is a high crime or misdemeanor. So we have not passed through an investigation over the course of the last several months where it’s not treason, it’s not bribery, it’s not extortion, it’s not a foreign an illegal foreign campaign violation it’s now whatever a majority of the House of Representatives that is controlled by the Democrats say it is, which is abuse of power, abuse of conduct and an inter-branch dispute."

If Democrats impeach President Donald John Trump on these Fake Crimes, his lawyers should appeal to the Supreme Court. While the justices are loathe to get embroiled in politics, too bad. The office exists in part to settle difference between the other branches of government.

An alternative is to start the trial on January 3, make a motion to dismiss, and have the Senate vote to dismiss because the House failed to list a crime.

Breitbart News listed 5 swing state Democrat senators -- Doug Jones of Alabama, Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, Gary Peters of Michigan, Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire, and Joe Manchin of West Virginia -- who might vote to acquit.

Having watched the man in action for 20-plus years, I believe Manchin likely would vote to dismiss or acquit. Remember, I told readers he will not switch parties.

The lack of a crime in the articles is an invitation for House Democrats to vote the impeachment down.

And finally, there is this.

It is a Schiff show.
