Michael Dorstewitz, 9 Reasons Why Impeachment Is a Fraud

Michael Dorstewitz

Last week’s announcement by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi authorizing an impeachment inquiry — the latest in a series of Democratic attempts to reverse the results of the 2016 presidential election — is replete with dishonesty and outright fraud.The attacks on President Trump began even before his Inauguration, when electors were asked to reject the will of the people of their states and to instead cast their ballots for Hillary Clinton.

Vanity Fair reported as far back as December 2016: “Democrats are paving the way to impeach Donald Trump.”

NewsBusters released a video montage depicting media figures discussing the possibility impeaching Trump as early as November 2016.

But when the accusations of collusion and obstruction imploded, Trump’s mortal enemies needed something else. Finally, they settled on Ukraine-gate.

Here are 9 reasons the entire effort is a fraud perpetrated upon the American people:

No. 1: The president’s remarks did not violate any law. Democrats point to the transcript of Trump’s July 25 conversation with Ukraine’s newly elected president, Volodymyr Zelensky, as evidence of a crime. Specifically, they hone in on Trump’s words, “I would like you to do us a favor,” the favor being to assist the United States into investigating the activities of a Ukrainian company that had hired Hunter Biden — the son of former Vice President Joe Biden. They claim that this may be evidence of bribery or extortion, and point to Trump’s statement that “the United States has been very, very good to Ukraine” as incentive.

But even given the most cynical interpretation possible, those statements do not come close to bribery or extortion.

At a press briefing held at the United Nations last week, Zelensky said that “we spoke about many things and so I think — you read it — that nobody pushed me.”

That’s why you now hear the president’s detractors saying the White House transcript was not a complete and verbatim account; that parts of the conversation may have been missing. But lack of evidence isn’t evidence of a high crime or misdemeanor.

No. 2: A presidential request for assistance is not an abuse of powerThe New York Times reported that “White House officials believed they had witnessed President Trump abuse his power for political gain.” Apart from reports that the “whistle-blower” report is based on second-hand and possibly even third-hand information, requesting assistance from Ukraine in this instance is not an abuse of power.

Trump was, in fact, asking for Zelensky’s assistance on behalf of Attorney General William Barr — the chief law enforcement officer of the United States. Barr is engaged in ferreting out foreign influence on the 2016 election. That influence may include an Obama administration request that Ukraine investigate then-Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort — for apparent political gain. The double-standard at work here is breathtaking.

No. 3: The request for assistance was made pursuant to treaty. A 1999 treaty between the United States and Ukraine “On Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters” calls for cooperation from each country in prosecuting crimes. As a matter of fact, the Obama administration made use of that very treaty, and asked Ukraine to investigate then-Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.

Far from breaking the law, Trump was actually following the law when he requested support from Ukraine.

No. 4: Democrats have no quid pro quo. Quid pro quo, along with “offer and acceptance,” is the foundation of any contract. It’s a Latin phrase literally meaning “this for that” — if you give me this I’ll give you that.

Democrats say that the president was holding military funding for Ukraine over Zelensky’s head in exchange for information. This is unsupported by the transcript. In fact: Military funding isn’t mentioned once during the conversation.

Indeed, Ukraine military funding was under review long before the phone call. When asked about it afterwards, Zelensky said he was unaware that funding might be curtailed. Afterwards, he saw no connection between Trump’s request and the cut in aid.

So according to both parties involved in the conversation, the funding was independent of and unrelated to the issues that were discussed.

No. 5: Pelosi rushed to judgment. The California Democrat announced that she was authorizing an impeachment inquiry prior to reviewing any evidence whatsoever, including interviewing witnesses or examining documents in support of an impeachment, including the transcript of the phone conversation.

On Tuesday, Sept. 24, Pelosi announced the impeachment inquiry in response to mounting pressure from fellow House Democrats, although she was fully aware that the president was considering the release of the transcript.

The following day, Wednesday the 25th, the president declassified the transcript of his phone call and authorized its release. Although not verbatim, it was based on the “records the notes and recollections of Situation Room Duty Officers and NSC policy staff assigned to listen and memorialize the conversation in written form as the conversation takes place.”

No. 6: The whistle-blower complaint wasn’t one. Former Rep. Bob Barr, R-Ga., observed recently that the document released is not a true whistle-blower complaint. He said that the document delivered to the chairmen of both the House and Senate Intelligence committees was apparently drafted by a member of the CIA, but was clearly a collaborative effort involving several other members of the intelligence community. Despite that, the complaint failed to present evidence of “fraud, waste, or abuse” — the purpose of such complaints.

Perhaps most importantly: The whistleblower document provides no evidence that either Trump or Zelensky disclosed information “relating to … intelligence activity involving classified information.”

That is, the requisite standard to qualify as an intelligence-community whistleblower complaint was never met.

Barr said, in sum, that intelligence-community management was clearly behind the whistleblower complaint, and not a true whistle-blower. Longtime former CIA analyst Fred Fleitz made the same point on Newsmax TV.

No. 7: Trump hid nothing. Far from hiding evidence from public view, the president made it available to Congress and the American people. Nevertheless, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., claimed that by transferring the transcript of his phone call to a secure server, he was trying to hide it. Appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Schiff claimed that the “electronic file that is meant for covert action, not meant for this, if there’s an effort to hide those and cover those up, yes we’re determined to find out.”

Former administrations routinely kept files on the secure server, including the Obama administration, according to former national security adviser Susan Rice. But to Schiff and fellow Democrats, being fully transparent isn’t being transparent enough — unless it includes a mea culpa.

No. 8: Pelosi says she did not want to impeach Trump, but the facts say otherwise. After announcing the formal impeachment probe she appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” and said, “We have to be very prayerful. I pray for the president all the time,” adding, “I pray for the safety of his family.”

But when Trump was preparing to represent the United States at the 75th anniversary of the Normandy invasion in June, any thoughts of prayers for the Trump family were far from her mind.

Pelosi met with senior House Democrats, including House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler. She told the New York Democrat and others who were pressing her for impeachment that “I don’t want to see him impeached, I want to see him in prison.”

No. 9: Why not let the people decide? This may be the most compelling reason of all: With just 13 months to go until the next election, why the rush to impeachment? Why not give the American people a chance to make up their own minds on the matter? The presidential campaign is heating up with Trump stepping up his rally appearances and Democratic presidential hopefuls are already preparing for their fourth round of debates. Why not present the evidence to the people as the president has been doing and let them be the judge — in the election booth.

    1. My Letter to the Editor of the Wisconsin State Journal, which no doubt they will not print:

      How we Know Ron Johnson has it Right

      Editor,

      The media doesn’t want the American people to know the background to Trump’s conversation with Zelensky because it blows their cover and destroys their narrative:

      (1) Bill Clinton signed a treaty with Ukraine in 1998 for mutual assistance in criminal matters, where Trump was not only permitted but obligated to report crimes committed there.

      (2) Joe Biden boasted of having the Ukrainian prosecutor fired by threatening to withhold $1b in US aid–and gave the government six hours to get it done;

      (3) We have him on video explaining that he actually did what Trump is accused of doing, where the Ukrainian prosecutor, in a sworn affidavit, has confirmed it;

      (4) Trump immediately released the transcript, which anyone can read, and there is no basis for concluding that he had done anything wrong when you know (1)-(3).

      (5) Voters in Iowa are not being affected by the non-stop, 24/7, fabricated reports about this, where they (completely appropriately) regard Ukrainegate as Russiagate 2.0.

      (6) Comparisons with Nixon are inaccurate, because Democrats, Republicans and Independents alike supported his impeachment, but Trump supporters are sticking with him.

      (7) Chuck Todd revealed his bias in attacking Ron Johnson, who is a good man doing his best to sort things out and expose the truth of the matter, while Todd is promoting fake news.

      Rep. Al Green (D-TX) explained what’s up: “I’m concerned that if we don’t impeach this president, he will get reelected”. That’s why his party and their media allies are playing us.

      1. Trump will not be impeached. The more the idiot Pelosi goes forward with this particular witch hunt (ironic we have a witch staging a with hunt, eh?) the more the Dems expose and bury themselves. If this entire process is not staged (I always have that suspicion), the way they are going about this has got to be one of the greatest political blunders of all time. Going forward without a vote is empty rhetoric and calling for a vote will do far more damage the Dems than to Trump.
        AND, if the idiots final solution is to assassinate Trump, you can bet Revolution 2.0 will commence. Have to go now and find my Guy Fawkes mask.out of storage,,,

  1. From Benjamin Fulford…as feasible as anything I have read:

    U.S. headed for civil war as military mobilizes to take down cabal
    By Benjamin Fulford Weekly Reports 12 Comments

    The United States is headed for full-blown civil war or revolution, as the U.S. military has now mobilized troops and reserve units “to take down the Deep State,” Pentagon sources say. “With 125,000 indictments, many will be unsealed, making for a bloody October revolution or October surprise before the satanic Halloween holiday.” They note that “Melania Trump wore red on October 1 to signify Red October for a new fiscal year as the military mobilizes troops to defend Trump.”

    The mobilization order can be confirmed on the U.S. Marines’ own home page:
    https://www.marines.mil/News/Messages/Messages-Display/Article/1979422/manpower-guidance-for-activation-and-deactivation-of-reserve-component-rc-marin

    The order authorizes Marines and other U.S. military units to take action inside the U.S. if “a Governor requests Federal assistance in responding to a major disaster or emergency,” or “When directed by the President,” or following “a Request For Forces (RFF) from the responsible Combatant Commander.” The order further reads, “Marines with subject orders will execute orders… in order to respond to threats in the Homeland.”

    Multiple sources, including Dr. Steve Pieczenik (who served as a Deputy Assistant Secretary of State under Henry Kissinger, Cyrus Vance, and James Baker) confirm that the mobilization is in response to an attempted CIA coup led by CIA Director Gina Haspel against U.S. President Donald Trump. Dr. Pieczenik, by the way, is the son of Holocaust survivors and has gone on the record blaming Nazi Jews as being involved in the mass murder of their own people.

    https://www.rumormillnews.com/cgi-bin/forum.cgi?read=132599

    CIA sources confirm that Haspel is “a blood relative of the Rockefeller clan (Clinton, Zuckerberg, etc.).” Furthermore, the sources state that Haspel “was in charge of ‘Cat’s Eye,’ the first secret black site for interrogation of alleged terrorists, set up in Thailand. She also ran a secret black site at Guantánamo Bay prison after 9/11 at the request of GW Bush/Dick Cheney. (This was totally off the books). She travelled between Thailand and Cuba. After her mission in Thailand, she was appointed Station Chief of the CIA London office. She is overseeing the plot to …

  2. The mass hypnosis marches the Republic off a cliff… financially, spiritually and morally. We are throttle to the firewall approaching 22 trillion in debt, we celebrate the military at every sporting event that killed civilians by the million and we got drag queen story time for children. Financially and Morally bankrupt. America stands for freedom?… while law after law is passed eviscerating the Bill of Rights. Freedom to make medical decisions for your kids is under constant attack. Our system is an artificial binary construct that gives no quarter to third rail thinking. You either swallow climate change, hook line and sinker or you are a climate denier. Climate deniers are even more despised than Holocaust deniers and child molesters. The elephant in the room is weaponized weather creating climate catastrophes the world over. The trendies are willfully blind to this in your face reality. There’s a reason there’s sports that overlap others to cover the entire calendar year. Much more fun immersing oneself in bread and circus than discussing the cliff we accelerate toward.

  3. We have known vaccines are BAD…but did we know they were this bad ? I always take Stone’s posts with a grain of salt, but considering all we have found out in regard to those behind the scenes, this seems highly feasible …proceed with caution….

    Remember early this year when I mentioned Italy analyzed vaccines and found they were fraudulent? It’s worse than I stated
    Today Infowars posted that when the Italians discovered the MMR shot was completely fraudulent, they did gene sequencing and found the entire male human genome (with modifications) in the vaccine. That’s HUGE folks. Here is what this means (more completely than you’ll find elsewhere)

    It means that if the kid the genes were taken from was autistic, that the vaccines would pass on the autism to the recipients at very high rates. It also means that anyone who received it would have an immune response where the immune system attacked the body on top of it all. If you want a full explanation of how “vaccines cause autism” HERE YOU HAVE IT, they most likely found an autistic child and as an act of war, used that kid’s genes to wreck everyone via the shots.

    YOU KNOW. GENE THERAPY. EVER HEARD OF THAT? EVERY DAMN MMR SHOT IS EXACTLY THAT, AND THE INTENDED OUTCOME WAS NEVER MEANT TO BE GOOD. THIS IS IN PART WHY AUTISM HAS EXPLODED, NO QUESTIONS ASKED.

    They are CLEARLY and WITHOUT QUESTION making vaccines mandatory because they are not vaccines, they are “gene therapy shots” that are giving us all a downgrade. That way a far less capable group that claims neanderthal Khazar roots can once again be on top! Their damn failed moon lander PROVES IT, even the CHICOMS out did them!

    Don’t worry, after the despised white male is done away with via “vaccination” they can claim to be the highest intelligence on earth, -er, – after they do the same to China.

    I have said repeatedly the vaccines were not vaccines at all, which is why they are for diseases that have always been regarded as harmless – if they are for diseases that don’t have a history of killing people they can be totally fraudulent and it won’t matter because the disease does not need to be treated anyway. Instead, the shots are now clearly for the sole purpose of changing the child, Folks, if you can sequence the entire human genome from these vaccines, there’s more than something “amiss”, this is intentional, it is not contamination, it is not a “bad batch” or whatever hoo ha kikedom states, there’s a DAMN GOOD REASON why the Jews just said no to this vaccine in New York, we have our answer:

    If you can sequence the entire male human genome from ANY vaccine, it’s purpose is modification of an individual’s potential, NOT DISEASE PREVENTION. If you can sequence the entire human genome from a vaccine, IT IS NOT AN ACCIDENT. IT IS NOT A TAINTED BATCH. IT IS INTENTIONAL, folks we just got irrefutable proof of the fact that the vaccines are for the sole purpose of modifying the recipient, and VERY EVIL PEOPLE DECIDED WHAT THOSE MODIFICATIONS WERE TO BE AND IT SHOWS IN THE APOCALYPTIC RATES OF TOTALLY F***ED UP KIDS. We have been maimed beyond belief. But IDIOT PARENTS just got a new Google Pixel and are surfing snapchat, while 7 year old bobby spins in the background blowing spit balls. THEY KNOW the vaccines did not do it, because Google said anyone who thinks the vaccines wrecked Bobby is an anti-science conspiracy nut!

  4. The CIA is dirty on this one again. They were the ones who got rid of Nixon. If Trump doesn’t do what the CIA wants, they can get rid of him, one way or another.

  5. Just now from Jim Stone…what the heck can this mean??

    THE MARINES JUST GOT PERMISSION TO DEPLOY IN THE UNITED STATES
    Rumor has it that all other armed forces got a similar letter. This particular letter is for the Marines and Navy. Note, the date is October 3, this is something new.
    Jade helm was training, done under TRADOC, however, this particular notice authorizes live fire on American soil.
    Here is the title: MANPOWER GUIDANCE FOR ACTIVATION AND DEACTIVATION OF RESERVE COMPONENT (RC) MARINES ORDERED TO ACTIVE DUTY ISO DEFENSE SUPPORT OF CIVIL AUTHORITIES
    Date Signed: 10/3/2019 | MARADMINS Number: 550/19
    “Requests for Federal assistance will come with little warning. As required, the Marine Corps must rapidly mobilize RC units and personnel IAW this MARADMIN in order to respond to threats in the Homeland.”
    What does this mean? It means that civil war in the United States will be answered by America’s own armed forces.
    However, doing this is risky business, because they will be ordering these soldiers to take action against their own friends and families. This could backfire.
    Though the Reserve units have been deployed in the United States for various reasons, having them deploy to “defend civil authorities” is unprecedented, this is something new folks.

      1. I had thought about that. It may well be this is the next to last move before the indictments come down and/or before the insane ones initiate their next attack (assassination attempt?). It could be getting very interesting very shortly.
