Shapiro Rips Dem’s Impeachment Claim Apart
The Democrats are still claiming they have grounds for impeachment. They have moved forward with their flimsy, baseless impeachment case defying reason. And it seems there is just no reasoning with the House Dems. Legal expert Jonathan Turley tried to warn them they were setting a dangerous precedent but his words fell on deaf ears. In light of the Dems bringing forth two articles of impeachment against the president, Ben Shapiro decided to explain to the public just how ridiculous this is.
“There is no obstruction of Congress, because obstruction of Congress is just called the president saying, “No, I’m a separate branch.” This happens all the time, obstruction of justice is when you refuse a court order — it’s a whole third branch of government. Jonathan Turley was pointing this out in his testimony before the House Judiciary Committee last week.
These are now two completely manufactured charges. They are creating charges, out of whole cloth, that have no precedent in history or law. None. There is no precedent. The Washington Post admits there is no precedent in history or law for the idea that you can impeach solely based on, quote-unquote, “obstruction of Congress.” It doesn’t exist because, again, obstruction of Congress, put another way, is just called “the executive branch is unitary, and the executive branch is not subject to all of the whims of Congress unless the judiciary agrees that the executive branch’s privileges are overruled by the ability of Congress to seek information.”
These sorts of battles happen every single day between the legislature and the executive — that is not obstruction of Congress any more than it was obstruction of Congress for Barack Obama to declare privilege over documents regarding Eric Holder and “Fast and Furious.” That was not obstruction of Congress, that was just called how this stuff works.
When it comes to the first charge — the abuse of power charge — again, weak tea. You have now redefined the nature of bribery to avoid the troublesome pitfalls of having to fulfill the criminal elements. That’s what the Democrats did here. They took “bribery,” the crime of bribery, they stripped it of the corrupt intent and they stripped it of the requirement that there be a thing of value given an exchange. So they stripped the contents of the law, they called it “abuse of power,” and they said he’s guilty of that. That’s amazing stuff.”
Watch The Video Below.
Shapiro has a law degree from Harvard Law School, he knows his stuff. I don’t know if the Dems think they have no choice at this point, or what. But this impeachment case is going to be thrown out by the Senate as it should be, this is just the Mueller Report all over again, only the Dems decided to act on their lack of evidence.
