Shifty Schiff to Senate: Please give us evidence to make our case

The Democrats and their lapdog media, led by Adam Schiff, AKA Shifty Schiff, lectured us for the past three years that President Trump must be impeached and removed because they had clear, compelling evidence that President Trump committed impeachable crimes.

Now that the impeachment trial has started, Shifty Schiff is arguing that the Senate must subpoena documents and witnesses to prove the Democrats' impeachment articles.  What happened to their "evidence"?

The premise of the Shifty argument is that President Trump must be guilty of something, so there must evidence somewhere to prove it.  Democrats want the Senate to issue subpoenas so they can rummage through documents and question witnesses in the hope of finding something they can use.  The logical question is, why and how do the Democrats believe that President Trump is guilty if they have no evidence that proves that President Trump is guilty?  If they had such evidence, they would present it instead of whining for subpoenas.

The Shifty Democrats know there is no such evidence because they know that President Trump did not commit an impeachable offense.  If there were evidence of guilt then the Democrats would have it.  President Trump released the transcript of his phone call with Ukraine's President Zelinsky, so we know what he said.

There is no obstruction of Congress because President Trump, like every other president, can invoke executive privilege and immunity to protect the powers of the presidency under the separation of powers doctrine.  The Shifty Democrats did not file suit in federal court to enforce any subpoenas because they knew they would lose.  Their argument now is that they did not want to spend time in court to argue the separation of powers doctrine and executive privilege.  The Shifty Democrats would rather spend time in front of television cameras saying President Trump is "hiding" evidence.  Who needs the courts to decide when you have the media attacking President Trump 24/7?

This is not a trial.  It is a political show orchestrated by the Shifty Democrats to defeat President Trump in the 2020 election.  The Shifty Democrats know they will lose the impeachment trial.  Their strategy is to say ad nauseam that President Trump is hiding evidence so they can argue during the presidential campaign that President Trump won the trial because he hid evidence. The Democrats' problem is that they do not have a presidential candidate who can beat President Trump, so they have to destroy President Trump.

The Shifty Democrats are putting our country through the trauma of an impeachment solely to win the election.  They will risk a stock market downturn that will hurt the savings and pensions of Americans.  They risk weakening the president in his dealings with Iran, China, and other adversaries.

The bottom line is that the Shifty Democrats care only about winning the 2020 election and not about the welfare of our country.
