Most of the media have reported on the impeachment of President Donald Trump from the Democratic angle, as if the president would be removed from office for committing a flagrant crime and American democracy would be in jeopardy because of him.
Yet there is a very large gap, a chasm indeed, between the facts and what is being reported or—rather—the way in which it is being reported.
OAN made a video called “5 things the MSM refuses to report about impeachment.”
These are the points:
One: Democrats are trying to compare President Trump to the other three presidents in history who have faced impeachment—Andrew Johnson, Richard Nixon, and Bill Clinton, but this is actually the first impeachment trial where there is no crime.
The Democrats have no proof or evidence of any crime or offense committed by the president.
Never before has a president eligible for re-election been impeached. Andrew Johnson was not nominated for another term, Bill Clinton was already in his second term and Richard Nixon resigned in his second term before certain impeachment. So what the Democrats are afraid of is that President Trump will be re-elected?
Two: Alexander Hamilton wrote about partisanship. He was concerned that the greatest danger in misusing the impeachment process is that it is based on the votes that each party can muster in the House and Senate. This is what is happening in this impeachment, the first in U.S. history to be based exclusively on partisan votes.
Politicians like Nancy Pelosi, Jerry Nadler, and Adam Schiff are biased and put their own interests and those of the Democratic Party ahead of those of the entire nation.
Three: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-N.Y.) admitted that the impeachment is taking place only because the Democrats do not want President Trump to win re-election in 2020, so they are trying to impeach him in order to damage his reputation.
Four: This point is based on the first reason that there is no evidence of any crime. Allegations of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress revolve around the president’s committing quid pro quo. However, the transcript of the phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Zelenskiy reflects that there was no pressure or exchange of favors, even the so-called witnesses denied quid pro quo and had no firsthand knowledge of any “crime” committed by the president.
Moreover, the anonymous whistleblower did not even participate in or listen to that phone call between President Trump and the Ukrainian president.
Five: The Democrats set a dangerous new precedent for a democratically elected president to be “guilty until proven innocent” just because of some “rumors” about the presidents’ call.
Now the Democrats are refusing to transfer impeachment to the Senate, delaying the process because they know that in the Senate they can easily acquit President Trump, who is entitled to a fair trial.
“So after the Democrats gave me no due process in the House, no lawyers, no witnesses, no nothing, they now want to tell the Senate how to run their trial. Actually, they have zero proof of anything, they will never even show up. They want out. I want an immediate trial!” the president wrote on Twitter on Thursday, Dec. 19.
If a president—whatever party he is—is successful in his administration and makes jobs flourish and all the people benefit, is it not to celebrate?
If a president fights for his country and makes incredible agreements with other nations to trade with fairness and enriches everyone’s economy, isn’t that good?
Whatever party one may be, everyone should support that president, or at least accept him.
So why are the Democrats unhappy? Why do they hate President Trump so much? Is it because he gave power back to the people and is purging all those who ruled from the shadows?
This period of time will remain in history. It will just no longer be reported by the multimedia that responds to the Washington establishment and the deep state, but by other voices and other media that are now being censored or attacked. Justice will be done.
