DEMON-RATS WANT TO PUNISH TRUMP FOR EXERCISING HIS RIGHTS

NewsThud.com——————- By Paul Goldberg —————- Tues., Feb.09, 2021

Democrats are throwing the Constitution out the window and have threatened to punish President Trump for exercising his rights.

Democrats have doubled down that they intend to punish Trump for not testifying at the impeachment trial in the Senate.

In a filing responding tot Trump’s lawyer’s 75 page trial memorandum the House impeachment managers wrote:

[T]he House has invited President Trump to voluntarily testify under oath, yet President Trump immediately rejected that opportunity to tell his story.

The House will establish at trial that this decision to avoid testifying supports a strong adverse inference regarding President Trump’s actions (and inaction) on January 6.

Democrats were responding to Trump’s lawyers’ pointing out that Democrats ignored procedural conventions surrounding impeachment in the House, and denied Trump his due process.

The Fifth Amendment to the US Constitution is very clear and states that “No person … shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.”

The impeachment trial is not a criminal case; however, most legal scholars agree that the same principles in a criminal trial should apply to any type of impeachment trial.

Constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley wrote that Raskin is threatening to overturn centuries of progress that have established a defendant has the right not to testify against himself or herself…

Let’s call this what it is, the Democrats are trying to pressure Trump to testify so they can claim he lied during testimony, then refer him to the DOJ to criminally charge him under oath.

President Trump isn’t going to fall for that.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
