Presidential lawyer Pat Cipillone destroyed Adam Schiff and Democrats’ sham impeachment with one truth bomb after another

President Donald Trump’s sham impeachment trial began earlier this week following the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, and it kicked off about like we expected: With one lie after another from the Democrat House impeachment managers.

The managers, led by Intelligence Committee chair Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), accused the president of ‘betraying the country’ by attempting to force Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to conduct a corruption probe of Trump’s ‘2020 campaign rival’ Joe Biden — though no one’s yet been nominated as the Democrats’ 2020 presidential candidate.

Such a demand — such a “quid pro quo” — was patently obvious to anyone who has been paying attention to the president’s behavior.

Why, even U.S. Ambassador to the EU Gordon Sondland said there was a ‘quid pro quo,’ according to Schiff:

Only, as The National Sentinel reports, Trump never made such a demand and Sondland expressly said in his opening statement during the House impeachment inquiry last fall that no, Trump “wanted nothing” from the Ukrainians. In fact, as presidential attorney Jay Sekulow noted this week, there is no “quid pro quo” mentioned in either of the two articles of impeachment Democrats returned against the president. 

“There’s a lot of things I’d like to rebut and we will rebut. I think we said it yesterday, first of all, you notice that Adam Schiff today talked about quid pro quo. Notice what’s not in the articles of impeachment. Allegations or accusations of quid pro quo,” Sekulow said.

“That’s because they didn’t exist. So, you know, there is a lot of things we’ll rebut but we will do it in an orderly and I hope more systematic fashion.”

Sekulow wasn’t the only one to refute Schiff, Nadler and company. Presidential lawyer Pat Cipillone provided often forceful rebuttals of the Democrat House managers, whose real purpose in impeaching Trump is overturning the results of the 2016 election as well as preventing a Trump victory later this year.

Only Democrats believe winning an election is an impeachable offense

Cipillone focused on many issues, including refuting Democrats’ claim that Trump “obstructed Congress” by refusing to allow members of his Cabinet and administration to respond to their subpoenas for testimony.

One long-established precedence used by presidents is the assertion of “executive privilege” — a concept that presidents invoke, under Article II of the Constitution, to protect the integrity and authorities of the Executive Branch. Presidential conversations, foreign policy discussions, domestic policy discussions, and the like are not subject to approval or rejection by the Legislative Branch and, thus, are protected actions and conversations. 

So the president went to court to protect his authority, and that does not amount to congressional ‘obstruction,’ Cipillone argued.

“Obstruction for going to court? It’s an act of patriotism to defend the constitutional rights of the president because if they can do it to the president, they could do it to any of you, and they could do it to any American citizen. That’s wrong,” Cipollone said. 

“It’s dangerous to suggest that invoking constitutional rights is impeachable — it’s dangerous,” Cipollone said, invoking language used by Left-wing law professor Laurence Tribe, who said the same thing during Bill Clinton’s impeachment. “And you know what? It is dangerous, Mr. Schiff.”

Cipillone then lashed out at Schiff for doing what he is good at — destroying evidence, lying and leaking out of context to advance his political agenda. 

“Let’s remember how we got here,” he said. “[Democrats] make false allegations about a telephone call. The president…declassified that telephone call and released it to the public. How’s that for transparency? 

“When Mr. Schiff found out that there was nothing to his allegations,” he decided to focus on a separate telephone call between Trump and Zelensky, about which he “made false allegations.”

The president is innocent because the president has done nothing wrong except winning in 2016.
