DEMS ARGUMENTS END: DID YOU LEARN ANYTHING NEW?

Heavenly Father, we ask that truth be the only words spoken during the impeachment trial.

House Democrats launched their final round of arguments in President Trump’s impeachment trial on Friday, shifting their focus to the president’s blanket stonewalling of Congress’s inquiry into his Ukrainian affairs as another basis for his removal from office.

Sometimes it’s really hard to know how to pray for our elected officials. Discover 30 Ways to Pray for Those in Authority with one of IFA’s classic prayer guides:

Democrats say Trump trampled on Congress’s legal authority to act as a check on presidential power when he adopted an across-the-board refusal to cooperate with House investigators examining his dealings with Ukraine last year.

While their case has centered on allegations that Trump abused his power, the third and final day of the Democrats’ opening arguments will focus on the second impeachment article passed by the House last month: obstruction of Congress.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the lead manager of the House team, also signaled that Democrats intend to put up a fight Friday for witnesses, pushing back on the White House legal team’s claims of executive privilege.

“This is not a trial over a speeding ticket for shoplifting. This is an impeachment trial involving the president of the United States,” Schiff told reporters in remarks ahead of Friday’s arguments.

“Unlike in the House where the president could play rope-a-dope in the courts for years, that is not an option for the president’s team here,” he continued. “And it gives no refuge to people who want to hide behind executive privilege to avoid the truth coming out.”

The Democrats’ impeachment case hinges on allegations that Trump withheld military aid to Ukraine, not to advance U.S. interests, but as leverage to pressure the country’s leaders to find dirt on his political opponents.

“No one anticipated that a president would stoop to this misconduct, and Congress has passed no specific law to make this behavior a crime,” House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said Thursday. “Yet this is precisely the kind of abuse that the Framers had in mind when they wrote the impeachment clause.”

Trump has dismissed the allegations for months, saying his interactions with Ukrainian leaders were “perfect” and accusing Democrats of conducting a “witch hunt” designed solely to damage his reelection prospects in November.

“The Do Nothing Democrats just keep repeating and repeating, over and over again, the same old ‘stuff’ on the Impeachment Hoax,” Trump tweeted Friday morning.

The president’s legal team, which will begin its arguments on Saturday, has said both impeachment articles are illegitimate, not least because neither charge represents a specific violation of federal law. The obstruction allegation is “absurd,” his lawyers have added, because it ignores the president’s authority to invoke special executive powers protecting sensitive internal deliberations.

Democrats argue the president’s decision to block witnesses not discretely, but by asserting “absolute immunity,” prevented them from gaining access to key testimony from officials with first-hand accounts of Trump’s contacts with Ukraine.

“The Framers, the courts, and past Presidents have recognized that honoring Congress’s right to information in an impeachment investigation is a critical safeguard in our system of divided powers,” the Democratic impeachment managers wrote in the 46-page brief outlining their legal arguments heading into the Senate trial.

The administration’s defiance came in two forms. First, the White House directed administration officials not to testify in the investigation, even if subpoenaed. And second, the administration refused to turn over any documents related to Trump’s pressure campaign in Ukraine.

The stonewalling was only partially successful: Democrats secured the testimony of 17 officials with a window into the Ukraine affair, many of whom appeared under subpoena.

But at least 12 others refused to cooperate, including former national security adviser John Bolton, acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, and two officials at the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) who are said to have insights into Trump’s decision to withhold the military aid.

The question of whether the Senate will compel their testimony has emerged as one of the central battles throughout this week’s trial. Behind Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), most Republicans have rejected the idea of allowing new witnesses or material evidence, maintaining it was the job of the House, not the Senate, to do the investigating.

  2. The enemy is not creative. He uses a simple playbook of deception and perversion with power from witchcraft. Lord, you know the heart of every man and woman involved in this impeachment process. You know the ones seeking truth and the ones whose hearts are corrupt and will lie and deceive to obtain their selfish desires. I pray blessing and wisdom on the those seeking justice and on the innocent accused falsely. I pray for the truth to be revealed. I come against forces of darkness holding back the truth from being spoken. I see a dam holding back a great body of water that represents the truth. The dam is being built by the Main Stream Media that has colluded with the liars and deceivers influenced by the forces of darkness. The dam has been built, layer by layer, with falsehoods about all the good things of God. They put forth lies about those who stand up for God and his principles. As the dam grows more pressure is exerted on the foundation of the dam. More and more lies, more deception, the dam fills deeper and deeper. More and more pressure…….. I see cracks developing in the foundation. The devil didn’t plan for this much water. He did not expect a President with such courage and fortitude to last this long and put up such a fight against all odds. Thank you Lord for this vision. I pray You release the Truth that maximizes true and helpful change to our nation. I pray the truth will expose the hearts of all people showing those with evil intentions. May this exposure lead to conviction in the hearts of those that have done such evil. May many repent and come to know the joy of forgiveness and see a crossroads in their lives where it is a simple choice of life or death. Lord bring Your Truth and may Your will be done.

  3. Heavenly Father, please silence the lies, false accusations, and any work of corruption in this Impeachment process. Your kingdom come, Your will be done. All authority on earth is given by You, Lord, and there is nothing that does not pass through Your hand. Please raise up justice and righteousness as Your word says they are foundations of Your throne.

    Please give wisdom, power, understanding, and authority to the President’s legal team and show those who are working corruptly the error of their ways. Please protect President Trump and surround him with Your ministering spirits. We lift Your name on high and pray Your will be done, in the name of our mighty king Jesus. Amen.
