Trump Responds to Dem Impeachment Managers Request to Testify

Gage Skidmore Fickr

Democrats House impeachment managers have formally requested that former President Trump testifies under oath in the upcoming impeachment trial set to begin next week. A letter from lead impeachment manager Jamie Raskin, alleges the former president’s defense denied “incontrovertible facts” about the events of Jan. 6th. Trump’s legal team replied to the letter calling it their “latest public relations stunt.”

The letter from the former president’s lawyers was quick and to the point simply pointing to the unconstitutionality behind the trial.

Fox News reports:

Lead impeachment manager Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., sent a letter to the former president requesting he testify about his actions in the lead-up to the Jan. 6 Capitol riot either before or during the Senate impeachment trial.

“If you decline this invitation, we reserve any and all rights, including the right to establish at trial that your refusal to testify supports a strong adverse inference regarding your actions (and inaction) on January 6, 2021,” Raskin continued. Trump is invited to respond by Friday at 5 p.m.

Last week Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., raised a point of order, claiming that it is unconstitutional for the Senate to hold an impeachment trial of a former president.

It was defeated by a 55-45 vote, with five Republicans joining all 50 Senate Democrats to pave the way for an impeachment trial to move forward. It would take 17 Republicans siding with all Democrats to convict the president with a two-thirds majority.

Demoncrats/RINOS can be RECALLED by their States. They control everything in DC, so HOW can they be impeached? I would love to see it, but it’s the STATES that have to step up and recall the demoncrats and the RINO’s. That removes them from office. By the way, none of those stated are in “office”.

To make them look foolish, and to be able to tell EVERYONE the TRUTH. The world is going to be watching this spectacle, they can’t tamper with it, people would know if they edit it. He should make it a condition that he gets to make a statement of his own, uninterrupted.

I think they want this impeachment on record because when all their dirty tricks come out and Biden and his ilk are removed from office for election fraud, it would for Trump to return to office if he has been impeached. The fallacy with that idea is that the left will also lose the Senate and some in the House due to fraud and at the very least the Senate would flip making their whole show a sham.

What a sham!

A sham impeachment by a bunch of SHAM POLITICIANS, preceeded by a sham election where a sham ImPOTUS was “elected”.

These idiots are totally consumed by Trump Derangement Syndrome, to a point where their derangement has evolved into a vendetta inspired by HATE and REVENGE.

Hate does more damage to the vessel that contains it, than what it is poured on and you can certainly see the damage based on the actions and rhetoric.

It seems that Congress has nothing better to do than to pursue President Trump waving false documents hoping to finish him off for good. .President has always disappointed them that they could never punish him–even after he has become a private CITIZEN..

It is a shame that such evil has come to the democratic party. All they worry about is themselves and what they want, not what is good for the people. To think of all those cemeteries filled with bodies who died to save this country. Now they want to turn it into communism. Take your communism and buy an island and life there with it. St. President Donald Trump is the best thing that happened to this country because he knows how God want is. God, County, Family, for the people and by the people.

Impeachment Mgr Raskin:

In case you aren’t aware:

1.) YOU ARE OVERSTEPPING OUR U.S. CONSTITUTION
.
2.) YOU ARE MAKING UP YOUR OWN RULES WITHOUT GETTING AMERICAN APPROVAL.

3.) OUR U.S. CONSTITUTION GIVES YOU NO AUTHORITY TO PUT A U.S. EX-PRESIDENT ON TRIAL FOR IMPEACHMENT.

4.) YOU, RASKIN, ARE GOING TO EMBARASS YOURSELF AS WELL AS DESTROY YOUR CAREER.

5.) ARE YOU AWARE THIS HAS BECOME A “SPIRITUAL BATTLE” GOOD vs EVIL AND YOU RASKIN ARE THE EVIL?

The above statements are factual and most Democrats refuse to see truths. Not until they “experience” loss so devastating do they finally understand that they live “Totally” in a World of MakeBelieve created in their own minds and removed from Reality.

And Americans are tired of cleaning up their twisted mental issues because dems can never see how sad and lost their lives really are. Dems, we are done dealing with your fears and false accusations. So GROW UP OR GET OUT UNTIL YOU CAN ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR OWN SICK BEHAVIORS.

FYI:
YES, it wasn’t Trump SUPPORTERS who trashed our Capitol but the Democrat’s own ATTACK DOGS, ANTIFA AND BLM, which the dems told to dress like Trump Supporters so they could blame President Trump for their very own DESTRUCTIVE DOGS! This was planned by the democrats!

It’s on film, on people’s cell phones, etc. And those destructive DOG people were sent there by the Dems to set up President Trump — ANTIFA AND BLM DID A GREAT SMASH UP JOB!

President Trump had ZERO to do with the destruction of the Capitol. The Dems sent their ATTACK DOGS, ANTIFA AND BLM, dressed like/pretending to be Trump Supporters, to destroy our Capitol!

It was easy to spot Antifa and BLM, even dressed like Trump Supporters, because they had a “CRAZY LOOK” on their faces! Sorry, but the actual Trump Supporters looked happy and calm looking at the Capitol; whereas, the DEM’S ATTACK DOGS were drooling and scratching their butts. Easy to see who was who!

All of the matters you are now witnessing will help those who did not understand where Satan stands now does. Those who have ears listen and those who have eyes see it.

The most amazing miracle you are watching as it unfolds is the light shinning upon those who are truly guilty.

If the Military Tribunals are opened for business, which we know they are, then you will see the power of the unseen. The God of Abraham wants the soul of Barack Obama and many others. For they will hang for TREASON to the country the Lord created with a Constitution to serve it. The United States of America.

Simply sit, watch, and be observant of the truth.
