This morning, ABC News was cock-a-doodle-doing that two other minions with no firsthand knowledge of anything, had corroborated Amb. Sondland’s assertion that the president had violated some imaginary law (which the Democrats cannot name or describe, but they’re somehow nevertheless sure it must have happened).
The clip above, wherein Rep Mike Turner sticks a knife through the heart of the Dumocrats’ star witness, and then twists it, hard, lays bare that corroboration of someone’s fever-swamp imaginings does not leap into being “evidence” in any court not presided over by marsupials.
It is merely proof of a shared delusion, and a conspiracy to commit a coup.
That IS against the law.
“If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.” – 18 U.S. Code §2384
Note that happily, there’s no ambiguity about this; that the mere act of conspiracy by any two persons anywhere meets the specification of guilt; and that there’s no magical “except for members of Congress” clause hidden in there anywhere.
No where, whatsoever.
That makes Adam Schiff-for-brains, everyone who voted to open these hearings on the House Intelligence Committee, and all the witnesses called thus far co-conspirators, and the president is fully within his legal right to direct AG Barr to have those members of Congress and their flunkies, and all the witnesses doing this Seinfeld sham impeachment inquiry (“an inquiry about nothing”) wholly without any of the basic Constitutional protections guaranteed to all Americans, arrested, indicted, and prosecuted for sedition.
We wish he would cut to the chase, and simply do so.
We would pay good money to see that on the boob tube day in and day out for the next 9 months.
I’d have to check the math, but rounding up a sufficient chunk of Congress and putting them under lock and key would flip the House, too, leaving Nancy Alzheimer’s as the overnight new Minority Leader, and Kevin McCarthy(R) the new Speaker of the House.
It is a consummation devoutly to be wished.
