Welcome back to Independent Voter site Balladeer’s Blog. I’ve made no secret of the fact that I feel neither Bill Clinton nor Donald Trump deserved impeachment. It’s a cheapening of the process.
My reasons can even be found in the Democrats’ own Washington Post. Links are below but first some excerpts:
Kathleen Parker noted that “to (her) disappointment,” “the case for impeachment simply isn’t there.”
The even more fiercely anti-Trump David Von Drehle took shots at Democrats Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler for their strategy and tactics in this debacle which I feel has not convinced anyone that wasn’t ALREADY a Trump-hater.
Per Von Drehle: “This offense that House Democrats can’t be bothered to fully investigate, can’t be troubled to thoroughly document, can’t discipline themselves to coil into a mortal blow – this is the very worst thing any president could conceivably do?”
David also pointed out that Schiff has failed to pursue this investigation through the courts. (NOTE FROM BALLADEER: That’s because there is absolutely no proof of anything and Schiff seems to know it.)
At least Bill Clinton faced a fair and constitutional proceeding. The Democrats, under the leadership of the seemingly senile Nancy Pelosi, have violated every previous procedure for pursuing impeachment, for all purposes admitting that they fear Trump will get reelected in 2020 and that this travesty is being mounted out of sheer desperation.
We need Third Parties.
