Undue Process

Fellow Americans,

Imagine you are accused of a crime you didn't commit.  Following your arrest, you will be booked into jail and scheduled to appear in court to face the charges.  As a defendant, you are entitled to confront your accuser and to see what evidence exists against you.  You are allowed to have legal representation and to interview the witnesses against you, as well as call your own witnesses to testify on your behalf.    

The process I described is referred to as due process.  Our Constitution guarantees every citizen these basic rights.  In our legal system, we are all presumed innocent until proven guilty in court.  These safeguards are meant to ensure everyone accused of a crime is given the benefit of the doubt.  Now consider the current political case against President Trump.  He has been accused of colluding with the Russians to steal the 2016 election away from Hillary Clinton.  He has also been accused of using the power of the government to go after his political opponents.  Ironically, the president's accusers are members of the Democrat Party and mainstream media.  They know they can't beat him in 2020 so they are desperately trying to impeach him without a shred of evidence of wrongdoing!

Impeachment is a political process handled in the Congress.  It is supposed to be a public event and the president is supposed to be able to confront his accusers and present his defense to the American people.  Impeachment is meant to be difficult and taken seriously.  If not, then every president would risk impeachment for any little thing he did or said that offended the opposition party.  Sadly, Nancy Pelosi and her band of conspirators are conducting bogus impeachment proceedings.  First, there is no evidence President Trump has done anything wrong (the three-year Mueller investigation revealed NO COLLUSION)!  Second, the proceedings are being conducted in secret to deny the president the ability to face his accusers and refute their accusations.  Third, the citizenry which elected Trump has been completely bypassed and ignored!  Apparently, due process only matters when a Democrat is in office!

This is clearly an undue process with which every American should be outraged!  Please pray for our president and our country, as we are at a dangerous tipping point in our history.  We must never allow any president to get railroaded like this!  May God bless you and the United States of America!
