I know that the one time the world was following an impeachment of an American President, live and in living-colour was back in the 1990s. Those was the days of Kool-Aid and a Presidential Affair turned into a Constitutional Crisis. This because the Republican Senators and Representatives took their shot at the Democratic Party President William J. Clinton.
They started impeachment inquiry in December 1998 over his affair in the oval office with a White House Intern Monica Lewinsky. By the end of February 2019, the whole case got acquitted, even after strong intentions and will from both Ken Starr and others to get rid Clinton. Still, it didn’t work.
Today in 2019 were seeing a move in this way today’s lucky bastard, Donald J. Trump, whose character and actions can be put into question. As his will to use Russian help, coordinated efforts and the investigation of over 2 years have shown. Still, the Congress is hell-bent on not acting upon it.
So, by this definition, in the 1990s a blow-job by an intern is more dire, than actually a foreign intervention and direct corrupt behaviour of present day government. Surely, in hindsight, people will say they would have supported the impeachment of Trump. But right now, the gravy-train, the slow train of reform isn’t there. It wasn’t as needed, as the strike and the fury of the acts of Clinton.
Sure, it was bad. He destroyed nearly his marriage to Hillary. He showed a lack of character and that he could misuse his power to get a happy ending. Well, the current day President has gotten a lot more and done a lot more in return. The President haven’t tried to stop a possible intervention in the up-coming elections in 2020. Neither has he tried to make the sanctions nor react to all the intelligence shown, that the Russians did interfere the previous election for the benefit of Trump.
Also, the obvious case of obstruction of justice, the ill-behaviour and the misuse of office. There is enough deeds to put this White House and this Administration under question. Clearly a long bucket list of foreign affairs and donations, sudden strikes of corporate deals done and to top-it off, the pay-to-play acts done by Trumps. Surely shows that the Tea-Pot Dome Scandal was only a fluke, but a daily occurrence in this government.
That is why the Congress, the House of Representatives should start an Impeachment Inquiry, where they will put the President under subpoena and by a grand jury to investigate the possible misdeeds of the President, as the Congress can do.
A CRS Report of 2005 states this: “The focus of the impeachment inquiry is to determine whether the person involved has engaged in treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors. If the House Committee on the Judiciary, by majority vote, determines that grounds for impeachment exist, a resolution impeaching the individual in question and setting forth specific allegations of misconduct, in one or more articles of impeachment, will be reported to the full House” (CRS Report for Congress – ‘An Overview of the Impeachment Process’ 20.04.2005).
This is clear on the memo. As the Congress and House Committee of the Judiciary and the House Representatives can start an inquiry and start an investigation into the President. To see if there is evidence of treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors. Just like in the past when they checked the blow-jobs of Clinton. In today’s world, the House of Representatives has to see if they can find clear evidence and in the collected reports of Special Counsel Robert Mueller; if there is anything that is criminal. This can be done by them. As there been plenty on the Trump Team and Campaign staff, which have been implicated in the probe and even sentenced ever since. This is why, with the knowledge of this and the secrecy, not only the release of all the volumes of the report. Plus the trying to deflect it all and overshadow the evidence collected. There is surely more to shed a light on, an underworld the President doesn’t want the public to know. Just like his hidden tax-returns, which is more secret than the golden showers in Moscow.
Alas, there is a need to start the proceedings, that is if a blow-job in the oval office is more critical to the state, than foreign interference from the Kremlin. Peace.
When your stonewalling into oblivion, there is only thing remaining, what is the person hiding? Especially if the guy is a public official, someone who represent the state for everyone else. Than, your supposed to be transparent without any connection to sources, which can stop you from serving the state. Alas, it is with this sense you can start to boggle, why the President of two years and campaign for longer time haven’t released his IRS Tax Returns.
This isn’t about vanity, that the Department of Justice and the Department of the Treasury, as neither the Attorney General William Barr or Secretary Steven Mnuchin are releasing it to the Congress. It is more secretive, than the nuclear codes or top secret intelligence that is shared with White House like nothing. This is how this administration operates, as there is no guidelines or need for protocol for the ones in close proximity of the President. However, to get the truth and the documentation the White House is supposed to abide the Committee’s of the Congress is nearly impossible.
Because of that, we have to wonder what the President is hiding. Is there some nuclear or criminal transactions his hiding? Is there questionable sources and fortunes hidden overseas, as the President is afraid of the public and the Capitol Hill knowing how earned his supposed fortune.
I am sure there are something so sinister, so dark and so damaging, that his paying his ex-wives to much in the settlements, that his foreign businesses aren’t profitable and the hotels only survives because he visits them everytime he can. Because, we only know the blown-up fantasy numbers and estimates he wants show the public. Not the real value of the properties and neither the profits. We don’t know if he even pay taxes. If he is capable of paying taxes and if the Trump Organization are able to pay their staff, maybe that is why he needs paperless workers at Mar-A-Lago in Miami to keep the golf-course a float.
He might be poorer than me, he might have a Kazakh Oil Csar that his owns so much money, that the Russians has to bail him out. We don’t know, because the President of the United States is afraid of being transparent and dropping the real deal. This shows his real intention of keeping people in the dark. He wants to Trump University the whole population. Give them all the shine and glory, but using unlicensed methods to trick the citizens. That is why he doesn’t deliver the IRS Tax Returns.
He doesn’t dare, doesn’t have the character or the posture to stand up and be brave. Because, he knows if the truth is released. His pretty fucked. His in such a hole, that even Ivanka smile cannot cover up the mess. Junior cannot even fake-grin or come up with lie that spins the news enough. This will not be locker-room talk or “on-both-sides”. No, this will be a burned bridge and no way to get back on land.
The President has such a secret, his willing to stonewall into oblivion. His secret is such a tragic mess, that even a Greek Tragedy cannot elope like this. His a fraud and fake, just like his tan. That is why the IRS Tax Returns are kept hidden and not released. He cannot unleash the dragon, than he will burn. Peace.
