“The evidence collected paints the picture of a President who abused his power to press a foreign country to interfere in the 2020 election. The next phase will move from closed depositions to open hearings where the American people will learn about the President’s misconduct” (House Judiciary Dems, 29.10.2019).
Today there was yet another defeating testimony, that again validated the quid pro qou case. Where President Donald J. Trump used the state aid or military aid to Ukraine as clause to ensure that foreign powers did investigate into Hunter Biden, an US citizen involved in businesses in Ukraine.
The whole scandal has from day-one sounded bad. But by everything revealed to the public made it worse. The MEMCOM, the text messages, the leaked pieces of the testimony from Fiona Hill, foreign envoy Sonderland, William B. Tayor and now Alexander Vindland. All of them has collaborated the same story. Just their side of it and it’s not sounding good.
All of it indicates the misuse of power for personal gains. This is a impeachable offence and the House Committee’s has tried to investigate it properly. However, the stone-walling and the use of executive privilege has been out of this world. While his having secret backchannels and other avenues of sharing information, even through his own personal attorney Rudy Guiliani and the aide of Devin Nunes. There are even two aides of Guiliani that is already behind bars. Therefore, this scandal is full blown already and the proceedings hasn’t started yet. Not the public ones, but the information and evidence they have gathered. Will surely sound interesting, when the public hearings start!
The motion from the Committee has to be taken to the House and has to get enough votes to pass. But if people care about the Constitution and the Laws of the Republic. Than they should vote for it. To test the Presidency and show it to the public. All the collected evidence and not only the small drops in the public. Which is damning enough. As there are enough play and pay, here already.
The President knows this, his allies knows this and the Republican Party knows too. But they are trying to shift blame on the process and the way its done. Even if the Committee’s has followed the protocol to the book and the White House has not answered to subpoenas or any of the questioning sent to them. That is why all the previous attempts has been sent to court. Where most of it is still in the process awaiting verdicts, if not pushed to discovery or anything else, than an official release of the documentation that is needed.
That is why its high time the Impeachment Inquiry go public and gets into the final stages. Gets through in the House and the Senate. So, that the representatives, the ones whose lawmakers can finalize and also question the man himself. In front of the cameras, in front of the public and C-Span. So, there is no denying the facts or the statements told. Where they nay-sayers cannot question it. But see it for what it is.
Surely, this is not what many envisioned, but seems like the natural step. As every person involved or has testified. Has amplified the same story and shown the evidence for it. Therefore, the Committee’s are only doing the right thing. Than to get the proper function and continue the proceedings. As the White House and President is not forthcoming with their side or their paperwork in this regard. Peace.
