Lost in the left’s narrative regarding President Trump’s phone calls with world leaders is that it’s neither criminal nor inappropriate for him to ask for assistance on affairs with which they or their government can have direct knowledge. It’s ridiculous prima facie that somehow these actions are supposed to be impeachable, yet here we are, the media and the Democrats, digging deeper in hopes of finding anything that sticks.
We know this to be true because nobody on the left batted an eye when the Obama Justice Department solicited information from world leaders regarding then-candidate Trump. Nobody on the left was screaming about digging up dirt on foreign soil to harm a political competitor. Nobody on the left was even considering the notion that President Obama could be impeached for such actions. In fact, no lawmakers on the right were even bringing up the possibility. And yet here we are.
It is the responsibility of the executive branch of the United States government to enforce the laws. This seems to have been lost on Congressional Democrats who now believe they’re the enforcers. It doesn’t matter if enforcing the law works in favor of the President. Being a political opponent does not earn someone a free pass from scrutiny from the Department of Justice or the White House. Crimes are crimes. As the left often says, no one is above the law.
The latest “bombshell” reported by the NY Times attempts to condemn President Trump for asking Australia for help.
WASHINGTON — President Trump pushed the Australian prime minister during a recent telephone call to help Attorney General William P. Barr gather information for a Justice Department inquiry that Mr. Trump hopes will discredit the Mueller investigation, according to two American officials with knowledge of the call.
The White House restricted access to the call’s transcript to a small group of the president’s aides, one of the officials said, an unusual decision that is similar to the handling of a July call with the Ukrainian president that is at the heart of House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry into Mr. Trump. Like that call, the discussion with Prime Minister Scott Morrison of Australia shows the extent to which Mr. Trump sees the attorney general as a critical partner in his goal to show that the Mueller investigation had corrupt and partisan origins, and the extent that Mr. Trump sees the Justice Department inquiry as a potential way to gain leverage over America’s closest allies.
This is not only well within the President’s scope of power, but one can even argue failure to do so would be a betrayal of his oath to the Constitution. There were potential high crimes and misdemeanors committed by multiple people. The only reason you haven’t heard much about it is because it was Democrats allegedly committing the crimes. If President Trump and the Republicans had done what President Obama and the Democrats allegedly did, the case for impeachment would be much more clear than it is today because the media would be all over it.
But when President Obama was in office, the media learned to turn a blind eye.
The push against victimless crimes is a righteous one. There are too many laws on the books defending nothing from everyone. In this case, the victims have already been identified, namely the President himself and those who support him. Now, the President and the DoJ are trying to find the culprits of these crimes, but instead of righteously supporting these efforts, the Democrats are pointing the finger back to him as the one committing impeachable offenses. Where are Trump’s victims? Who was hurt by his calls to the Ukrainian President and the Prime Minister of Australia?
The most important question is why is the left so adamant about making this about President Trump’s calls instead of the crimes he sought to investigate? Were the Democrats’ crimes so bad they have to throw an impeachment hail mary to cover them up?
