This morning, we told you the Senate reconvened at 1:00 p.m. ET today to continue the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump. Yesterday, the Commander-in-Chief’s legal team filed a 110-page trial memorandum to the impeachment court that Grassfire feels compelled to share with you.
The well-crafted document calls the two articles of impeachment "an affront to the Constitution and to our democratic institutions." It labels the House impeachment inquiry a "rigged process" and a "brazenly political act" that "violated every precedent and every principle of fairness followed in impeachment inquiries for more than 150 years."
Ouch. That's gonna leave a mark!
The memorandum also says the "two flimsy Articles of Impeachment ... allege no crime or violation of law whatsoever—much less 'high Crimes and Misdemeanors,' as required by the Constitution. They do not remotely approach the constitutional threshold for removing a President from office." Counsel further insists that, if the articles were allowed to stand, removing Mr. Trump from office "would permanently weaken the Presidency and forever alter the balance among the branches of government in a manner that offends the constitutional design established by the Founders."
This is, perhaps, the most compelling part of the text:
"House Democrats jettisoned all precedent and principle because their impeachment inquisition was never really about discovering the truth or conducting a fair investigation. Instead, House Democrats were determined from the outset to find some way—any way—to corrupt the extraordinary power of impeachment for use as a political tool to overturn the result of the 2016 election and to interfere in the 2020 election. All of this is a dangerous perversion of the Constitution that the Senate should swiftly and roundly condemn."
In conclusion, Mr. Trump's legal team states: "The Senate should reject the Articles of Impeachment and acquit the President immediately." Grassfire wants to know if our team members agree.
The Democrats' efforts to remove America's Commander-in-Chief from office is seen by millions as a total sham and an unmitigated political disaster. This document basically calls the Witch Hunt a dumpster fire that should have been extinguished months ago. The President's legal team says the House impeachment is "irredeemably flawed" and "violated all precedent and due process."
