No rush to judgment on Trump — it's been ongoing since Election Day

On Jan. 20, 2017, the Washington Post published an online story that ran under this headline: “The campaign to impeach President Trump has begun.” The story was posted at 12:19 p.m., nine minutes after Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States.

“The effort to impeach President Donald John Trump is already underway,” the story by Matea Gold began. “At the moment the new commander in chief was sworn in, a campaign to build public support for his impeachment went live at ImpeachDonaldTrumpNow.org, spearheaded by two liberal advocacy groups aiming to lay the groundwork for his eventual ejection from the White House.” 

As the Senate’s impeachment trial opened on Tuesday, Jay Sekulow, a member of the president’s legal team, stood before the 100 senators who will decide the president’s fate and asked a question everybody knew the answer to. “Why are we here?” Sekulow asked, rhetorically. “Are we here because of a phone call? Or, are we here before this great body because, since the president was sworn into office, there was a desire to see him removed?”:snip:

Dems Can't Take the Chance of Voters Deciding 2020 Election

The funny part is, it’s not a punch line. In their opening impeachment argument before the Senate, Democrats claim they believe in a "fundamental principle that Americans should decide American elections." 

The 63 million Americans whose votes they are trying to invalidate don’t believe them. 

Democrats lost an election in 2016. Rather than gracefully accept defeat, they decided to become the worst sore losers in history. Three years after President Donald Trump was sworn in, they still are incapable of calling his election legitimate.  

The Democrats accuse him of soliciting Ukraine to “bolster the perceived legitimacy of his presidency.”  

“Perceived”? Democrats need a long overdue lesson in reality: Donald Trump is your duly elected president. No amount of clamoring about “Russia” can ever change that.  

 

Yet that won’t stop them from trying. During the first four hours laying out their case, Democrats mentioned “Russia” 102 times. It’s as if we never had a special counsel, whose team of former Clinton Foundation attorneys and future MSNBC contributors scoured the earth looking for “collusion” for two years and never found it. It’s as if countless other congressional investigations that found “no evidence that any votes were changed” in 2016, never happened. It’s as if we are stuck in the Obama-Biden years, and Ukraine is still waiting for tank-busting Javelins, while Russia exercises its “flexibility” in Crimea.  

It’s as if millions of Americans never told Washington we were sick and tired of its corrupt ways and raised our voices loudly and clearly on Nov. 8, 2016. :snip:
