“NULL AND VOID”
That is the assessment of any impeachment-related action Democrats attempt to now put forth based upon zero actual evidence in what has been exposed as a full-on partisan, modern-era witch-hunt.
And that’s not just coming from one of the most prominent legal minds today but from one of the primary architects of the Constitution itself.
Read on to learn more.
Via The Hill:
“House Democrats have announced the grounds of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress on which they plan to seek the impeachment of President Trump. Neither of these proposed articles satisfy the express constitutional criteria for an impeachment, which are limited to “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.” Neither are high or low crimes or misdemeanors. Neither are mentioned within the Constitution.
Both are so vague and open ended that they could be applied in partisan fashion by a majority of the House against almost any president from the opposing party. Both are precisely what the Framers had rejected at their Constitutional Convention.
Both raise the “greatest danger,” in the words of Alexander Hamilton, that the decision to impeach will be based on the “comparative strength of parties,” rather than on “innocence or guilt.”
That danger is now coming to pass, as House Democrats seek for the first time in American history to impeach a president without having at least some bipartisan support in Congress. Nor can they find any support in the words of the Constitution, or in the history of its adoption. A majority of the House is simply making it up as they go along in the process, thus placing themselves not only above the law but above the Constitution.
If the House votes to impeach President Trump on grounds not authorized by the Constitution, its action, in the words of Hamilton, is void. As he put it in the Federalist Papers, “no legislative act, therefore, contrary to the Constitution, can be valid.” If this is indeed the case, then the Senate will be confronted with a constitutional dilemma, if and when it will receive a void and invalid impeachment. It will have to decide whether to proceed with a trial of charges that are unconstitutional and therefore are void.
This is all uncharted ground, and it is difficult to predict how it will play out in the short term. In the long term, it is highly unlikely that President Trump will be removed by a two-thirds vote in the Senate controlled by Republicans. However, in the meantime, the unconstitutional action by a majority of the House to impeach a president on grounds not specified in the Constitution will certainly do considerable damage to the rule of law.”
(Indeed. This shockingly radicalized version of the Democrat Party despises traditional America and what greater tradition of this great nation is there than the Constitution which has helped to guide it to greatness for centuries? If these far-left Democrats were to somehow run into the likes of Washington, Hamilton, Jefferson, etc., they would likely be met with a swift and powerful slap across the face. These Democrats are spitting on this nation’s history of rule of law. Hopefully voters will not let them get away with it come 2020. VOTE. THEM. OUT.)
