Trump Suggests Arresting Congressman Working On Impeachment Proceedings

September 30, 2019

Last week this nation was convulsed with a daily series of news reports about the extent to which Donald Trump worked to undermine our election process and further his own personal aims while seated in the Oval Office.

With the dawn of a new week, we pick up where the madness left us on Friday by learning Trump questioned whether the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Congressman Adam Schiff, should be arrested for treason for his description of a phone call Mr. Trump had with the president of Ukraine during a recent congressional hearing.

Sunday Trump said Schiff should be “questioned at the highest level for fraud & treason.” The lack of sanity continues to be demonstrated by Trump with each twitter release or public statement.

We have seen this sad and pathetic type of cheap theatre from him many times.  He is known for launching false, illogical and mentally exhausting attacks, hoping to distract and wear the populace down.  He has played this act with frivolous lawsuits for decades, hoping to escape legal responsibilities or move a topic away from the headlines by tying it up in litigation.

We know Donald Trump, and what we have come to learn aligns with what Peggy Noonan wrote that “everyone knows he would do it, everyone knows it is like him. There’s no mystique of goodness to be destroyed.”

As to the act treason by Schiff—oh, please!  Trump is the one colluding, or trying to collude, with a foreign power in order to take down a likely opponent in the 2020 presidential election.

What we are left with is Trump saying whatever he wants.  But if a Democratic investigation into dangerous illiberal actions that Trump has committed occurs then it is the congressman who is committing treason?  The spectacle of a president threatening his political opponents with capital criminal charges is profoundly alarming.

Yet, the Republican Party links arms for partisanship’s sake and in do doing, once again, has thrown the nation under the bus.

And so it goes.
