Trump Impeachment Nears the End as Both Sides Make Closing Arguments

Both sides in the historic Senate impeachment trial of Donald J. Trump made their closing arguments on Monday amidst claims by Trump lawyers that acquittal is the only appropriate result of the trial, and the ridiculous charge by Adam Schiff that Trump would “sell Alaska to the Russians if left unchecked.”

The House Democrats made their close first, led by Schiff. In his close Schiff claimed that if President Trump’s dealings with Ukraine are not impeachable offenses, then nothing would stand in his way from attempting bolder power grabs — going so far as to bizarrely claim that Trump could use Alaska as a bargaining chip with “the Russians” for support in 2020.

Schiff floated the far-flung hypothetical as he appealed to Republicans who have acknowledged Trump’s wrongdoing in the Ukraine matter to prevent a “runaway presidency.”

However, the president’s defense gave their rebuttal to the Democrat arguments. They said the House majority is looking for an excuse to nullify the votes of millions of Americans.

Trump’s defense team countered that the Democrats have been out to impeach Trump since the start of his presidency, nothing short of an effort to undo the 2016 election and to try to shape the next one.

“Leave it to the voters to choose,” said White House counsel Pat Cipollone.

Meanwhile, President Trump is raising questions about the so-called whistleblower as well as House impeachment manager Adam Schiff. In a tweet Monday, the president blasted Schiff for making up details about his conversation with the president of Ukraine.

The closing statements came ahead of Tuesday’s last debate over the articles of impeachment before Wednesday’s vote to either convict or acquit President Trump.

    Trump has done nothing wrong. However, the Democrats should work without pay for the next year for wasting a year’s time. Pelosi should be put in jail for her actions. I am sick of Pelosi, Schumer, and Shifty Schiff.

    The BEST thing that the HOUSE AND SENATE can do at this point is to AQUIT and EXONERATE PRESIDENT TRUMP if Congress knows what’s best for them. Because if he ACQUITTED and EXONERATED the DERANGED AND DEPLORABLE POLLACK DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST/COMMUNIST PARTY will take over and you what that means! Everything that President Trump has done and wants to complete will be gone for EVER ! JOB’S, LOW TAXES, LOW UNEMPLOYMENT, PEOPLE BACK ON FOOD STAMPS, LOWLIFE’S BACK ON WELFARE
    MORE HOMELESS ON THE STREETS!!

    Anyone not voting to acquit the President is not working for “the people”! Mitt Romney should be run out on a rail! What is he hiding? I stand for this President & will be voting in 20/20. Any Republican not standing with our President is just as bad as Polosi! She is a TRAITOR & so are all her KKK MINIONS!

    The only thing I can say is I’m so happy I changed from being a “demoncrat” to a very happy Republican. I’m totally not understanding the childish show put on by Nancy Pelosi at President Trump’s FANTASTIC State of the Union address last night. I sat with both of my teenage nieces feeling totally embarrassed by her spoiled antics. It’s so hard to believe that we watched an 80 year old adult stoop to such low levels of hatred toward President Trump. She kept looking toward the rude group of demoncratS…dressed in white…just like their immature leader. Pelosi kept sending stupid signals to that group of RUDE adults. I had the hardest time trying to explain to my nieces regarding the lowlife actions of adults. It’s totally unbelievable that Nancy Pelosi claims to be a Catholic who hates no one…when her hatred for our President stands out like a sore thumb. The worst part of her comment is that Nancy claims to pray for President Trump every night. Oh…how could anyone forget Nancy’s finale last night…standing and tearing up her copy of President Trump’s speech! Lead on for “FOUR MORE YEARS OF OUTSTANDING PRESIDENCY. ONWARD AND UPWARD President Trump.

    SO the Dems are still SO CONCERNED about RUSSIA. Yet it seems that Hillary and the Dems are the ONLY ONES connected to RUSSIA! Isn’t that strange?
    I remember something about the standard of dealing with enemies of the Socialist states. Accuse them of doing EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE DOING.
    Anyone agree?

    “..acknowledged Trump’s wrongdoing”…? Since Trump has done nothing wrong then what’s to acknowledge? Further, I’d like to see a list of these pernicious so-called Republicans so that non-RINO’s can help make sure they lose their privileged positions ASAP!

    In spite of the typical Republican soft-pedaling regarding the issue, I think there is an historic plethora of criminal charges that need to be levied and aggressively prosecuted, equal in gravity to the disregard and destruction of the U.S. Constitution in which they’ve participated. I expect that results anywhere NEAR appropriate would effectively gut the Democratic “leadership” and the liberal Deep State as well.
