How about traitors?
During this whole impeachment “inquiry” process, I find it amazing to see how brazenly political and unapologetic these unelected government workers are in their opposition to our president, President Donald J. Trump.
Disagreeing with the policies of our president is one thing, but disregarding his wishes, plotting resistance to him behind his back and generally trying to impede his progress is treasonous in my mind.
These government employees are quite mistaken if they think they are acting in the best interests of our country.
They were not elected by anyone.
President Trump was elected by the people to represent us and do what he thinks is in the best interests of our country.
If anyone is working against him, they are working against us and the country.
They are by definition committing treason and should be charged as such.
Merely losing their jobs should go without saying.
According to Charles Creitz of Fox News, “White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham slammed the House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry Wednesday, suggesting that Foreign Service officials should resign if unprepared to carry out orders based on President Trump’s constitutionally recognized powers.”
“Grisham told ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ host Tucker Carlson he was correct when he claimed a number of State Department officials did not seem on board with Trump’s brand of foreign policy.”
‘“There is no reason that anybody in our government across our administration should be actively working against the president, especially a president that is doing so well for the country,’ Grisham said.”
“In response, Carlson said his interpretation of the Constitution tells him that ‘legitimacy comes from votes’ in a democracy, so the president, as elected head-of-state, has the power to determine foreign policy.”
‘“Aren’t they constitutionally bound to carry out the foreign policy of the president?’ he asked of Foreign Service officials.”
‘“Absolutely,’ Grisham replied. ‘If they aren’t ready to do that then they need to resign. It’s as simple as that.’”
Like I said before, it’s not “as simple as that.” These people need to be held accountable for their treasonous actions.
“In addition, Grisham ripped a Chicago Democratic lawmaker who interrogated witnesses at Wednesday’s impeachment hearing.”
“Rep. Mike Quigley, D-Ill., claimed ‘hearsay’ evidence is sometimes more important than direct evidence.”
‘“A primer on hearsay: I think the American public needs to be reminded that countless people have been convicted on hearsay, because the courts have routinely allowed and created, needed exceptions to hearsay,’ he said, in an apparent reference to Republicans’ comments that witnesses George Kent and William Taylor Jr. did not have first-hand knowledge of Trump’s Ukraine phone call.”
I would argue they didn’t have much “knowledge” in general.
“Quigley continued: ‘Hearsay can be much better evidence than direct as we have learned in painful instances.’”
“Grisham dismissed the claim, telling Carlson, ‘I don’t know how that’s even possible.’”
In response, all I can say is, “Mr. Quigley…, a friend of one my friends claims to have heard one of your staffers admit that you confessed to being an idiot.”
Now there’s some hearsay I may be inclined to believe!
‘“Today was a joke [referring to the impeachment inquiry hearing],’ she [Grisham] added. ‘It was all a sham.’”
I would tend to agree Ms. Grisham.
What we had was a political circus, with a main event, complete with liberal clowns, however, the “stars of the show” were a real flop and not as good as they were billed to be.
The next “star” appearing in the center ring is Marie Yovanovich, who was ousted from her post (former US Ambassador to Ukraine) back in April, so she wasn’t around for many of the key events of this “impeachment fairy tale,.” but she is apparently willing to bash the president and bombard us with more opinion and hearsay.
