IMPEACHMENT HEARINGS DAY 3 SUMMARY

Lord, we pray for truth to reign in the Senate impeachment trial.

House Democrats on Thursday, in the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, argued that a crime isn’t necessary to remove a president from office and doubled down on their defense of Joe and Hunter Biden.

The seven House Democrats who are the impeachment managers, including Reps. Adam Schiff of California and Jerry Nadler of New York, have three days, with up to 24 hours, to make their arguments.

On Saturday, the president’s legal defense team, which includes White House counsel Pat Cipollone; Trump’s personal lawyer, Jay Sekulow; and former independent counsel Ken Starr, begin their counterarguments.

After each side presents its case, the Senate will vote on whether to call witnesses to testify. The rules are similar to those used in the 1999 impeachment trial of President Bill Clinton, who was acquitted.

It takes a two-thirds vote, or 67 senators, to remove a president from office.

1. Lighthearted Schiff

After a deeply partisan fight over Senate trial rules on Tuesday and speaking for about two hours in Wednesday’s opening argument, Schiff, the lead impeachment manager, was more lighthearted Thursday.

After Chief Justice John G. Roberts opened the day’s session, he said House impeachment managers have 16 hours and 42 minutes left to make their case to the Senate “jurors.”

Schiff, the House Intelligence Committee chairman, spoke first for his team.

“I am not sure the chief justice is fully aware of just how rare it is, how extraordinary it is, for the House members to be able to command the attention of senators sitting silently for hours—or even for minutes, for that matter,” he said. “Of course, it doesn’t hurt that the morning starts out every day with a sergeant-at-arms warning you that if you don’t, you will be imprisoned.”

2. Defending Joe and Hunter Biden

Rep. Sylvia Garcia, D-Texas, spent much of her floor time defending former Vice President Joe Biden, a fellow Democrat, and his son Hunter Biden.

“Common sense will tell us that this allegation against Joe Biden is false,” Garcia said, adding, “President Trump asked for the investigation into Biden, based on a made-up theory that no one agreed with—no one.”

In 2016, Joe Biden, as vice president, threatened to withhold $1 billion in U.S. aid from Ukraine unless the Eastern European nation fired Viktor Shokin, the prosecutor investigating Burisma Holdings. Hunter Biden held a high-paying job on the board of  Burisma at a time when his father was the Obama administration’s point man for Ukraine.

Garcia said Shokin was corrupt.

“Calling for Shokin’s replacement would, in fact, increase the chances that Burisma would be investigated,” she said. “In other words, Shokin was corrupt and not investigating allegations against Burisma. So, Vice President Biden was calling for Shokin’s removal, advocating for a replacement, would actually increase the chances of Burisma’s investigation.”. . .

3. George Washington, Nixon, and Trump

Democrats spent most of Thursday homing in on the first impeachment article; specifically, abuse of power.

Nadler said Trump’s conduct “captures the worst fears of our Founders.”

“Since President George Washington took office in 1789, no president has abused his power in this way,” he said. “Let me say that again: No president has ever used his office to compel a foreign nation to help him cheat in our elections. Prior presidents would be shocked to the core by such conduct.”

Trump has made frequent references to his record, reaching all the way back to George Washington, albeit typically in a more favorable way.

A July 25 phone conversation between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy led to the Democrat-controlled House’s voting, without support from a single Republican, to impeach Trump for alleged abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. . .

4. Abuse of Power and Prior Impeachments

Nadler later defended the history of the term “abuse of power,” a charge often criticized as being too vague.

“All prior impeachment considered of high office have all included abuse of power,” Nadler said, and referred to the impeachment investigations of Presidents Andrew Johnson, Nixon, and Bill Clinton.

However, even left-leaning CNN fact-checked that comment and noted that abuse of power was not one of the 11 impeachment articles against Johnson in 1868. The House Judiciary Committee passed three articles of impeachment against Nixon in 1974, one of which was abuse of power. Nixon resigned the presidency before the full House voted. . .

5. ABCs of Impeachment

Nadler focused heavily on what he called the “ABCs of impeachment.”

“Abuse. Betrayal. Corruption. Here are each of the core offenses the Framers [of the Constitution] feared most,” Nadler said. “The president’s abuse of power, his betrayal of the national interest, and his corruption of our elections plainly qualify as great and dangerous offenses.”

Nadler said Trump abused his power by using the clout of his office to “solicit and pressure Ukraine to meddle in our elections.”

Regarding betrayal, the New York Democrat said, “He betrayed vital national interests; specifically, our national security, by withholding diplomatic support and military aid from Ukraine even as it faced armed Russian aggression.”

Regarding corruption, Nadler said, “President Trump’s intent was to corrupt our elections to his personal political benefit.”

“Article One thus charges a high crime and misdemeanor that blends abuse of power, betrayal of the nation, and corruption in elections into a single, unforgivable scheme,” he said. “That is why this president must be removed from office, especially before he continues his effort to corrupt our next election.”

6. Graham and Dershowitz Videos

Nadler explained that some Trump defenders note that neither article of impeachment is based on a criminal statute.

“In a last-ditch legal defense of their client, the president’s lawyers argue that impeachment and removal are subject to statutory crimes or to offenses against established law, that the president cannot be impeached because he has not committed a crime,” he said.

“This view is completely wrong. It has no support in constitutional text and structure, original meaning, congressional presence, common sense, or the consensus of credible experts. In other words, it conflicts with every relevant consideration,” he continued. . .

7. Phone Calls, Ambassador’s Recall

Rep. Val Demings, D-Fla., laid out the case about an alleged conspiracy by Trump’s inner circle and his personal lawyer, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, and Giuliani associate Lev Parnas, who was indicted and recently spoke out against Trump.

She attempted to play a recording of a voicemail between Giuliani and Parnas, but the audio didn’t work.

“Well, I was going to say it’s difficult to hear, but I’m sure you cannot hear that at all,” Demings said.

“According to phone records, Mr. Giuliani had a one-minute, 50-second call,” Demings, a former Orlando, Florida, police chief said. “Fifteen minutes after they hung up, the records also show that Mr. Giuliani placed three short phone calls to the White House. Shortly thereafter, the White House called Giuliani back. Giuliani spoke with someone at the White House for eight minutes and 28 seconds.

“I will just quickly note that at the time … the Intelligence Committee issued its report in mid-December, we did not know that eight-minute, 28-second call was from the White House.”

She said neither the White House nor Giuliani provided a recording or transcript of the call.

Demings said that Trump recalled Marie Yovanovitch from her job as ambassador to Ukraine out of fear that Yovanovitch, a holdover from the Obama administration, would stop the investigations of the Bidens and into suspected Ukraine election meddling in 2016.

Yovanovitch remains employed with the State Department at no change in pay and teaches at Georgetown University. But Demings said the ambassador’s removal created uncertainty among U.S. diplomats and State Department officials. . .

  1. Lord GOD, We are so grateful for the work of your Holy Spirit keeping a lid on this bitter attack of the US president. We realise that once your Bride (The church) has been caught up to meet the Bridegroom in the air (1 Thessalonians 4v17), then the situation of evil influence that curently being restricted (2 Thessalonians 2v7)by the Holy Spirit through the fervent prayers of the sants, will dramatically change, then this will no longer be the case. Then you will see the full force of demonic influences upon all such cases as we have now before us with this impeachment scenario. We must take full advantage of these days of Grace while we have the gracious prescense of the Holy Spirit as our helper. (John 9v4)

  2. Lord God,
    As you used Jehu to bring Israel out from the spirit of Baal, I believe you are using President Trump. He, like Jehu, is a warrior. Not against your people but in protection of your people. It is at the core, a spiritual war. May you stir your Spirit within the hearts of this people that through this decadent time in our country, eyes will be opened to new vision and more and more “troops” will be added to the battle. I pray for revival in the hearts of your people. Amen

  4. Dear Lord God, our Heavenly and Holy Lord, we pray that your mercies that are new every morning, towards our duly elected President Donald J Trump, our 45th President of the US.
    Please Abba Father, continue to let your will be done and not let these false accusations, to take our President Donald J Trump out of office or even tarnish his legacy. Let the Truth be known as to how far these “Sore Losers from the US election 2016”, would go to deceive the American public.
    We know our President was elected for such a time as this,by the graces and mercies of our Divine Holy God. Our President stands for the Lives of the unborn and the “voiceless”, for Israel, and for the Christians freedom of speech to continue to give us our God given rights. Father God,we thank you and lift up and exalt you. Through the mouths of your people, our lives have been changed for your Glory,for your Honor , for your Praise, by the blood of Jesus, who gave His Life for us,paid the penalty for our sins and for the whole world at Calvary, Hallelujah, Hallelujah!!!!!!!
    Please Lord intervene against these baseless and false articles of impeachment, by showing thru your Wisdom, that the President of the United States of America sets foreign policy! In the Mighty Name of Jesus, above all else, we exalt your Holy Name, and plead for the Mercies of God, that can Only come from the Heavenly Divine Hand of our Holy Sovereign Lord. Thank you for hearing our cries and our petitions, and above all else, let your Holy Sovereign Will be done. Only You get the Glory, Lord Jesus, we pray, Amen, Amen… Thank you Lord Jesus, thank you, Lord Jesus, thank you Lord Jesus, Amen, Amen, and Amen.

  5. Father, I ask that You would pour our the Holy Spirit upon all those involved in the Impeachment process, all the Senate, the Congress, the Judicial branches of our government that You would put Your fear on them, that what the enemy has meant for evil, You would turn it around to result in revival, repentance of the whole nation. Father, I ask according to Your will that You are not willing any should perish. Thank You Father for Your love and compassion, that Your hand is not too short to save. All praise glory and honor to You dear Father!! In Jesus ‘name I pray.

    Lord expose the lies, half truths being said and give the Lawyers for President Trump a powerful testimony, truth that is refined by fire, favor to the majority vote to not impeach him.

  7. Amen, Betsy! Father in Heaven, we pray for any trolls that they would come to the saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ and for there to be conviction.

    This IFA article reminds me of two Scriptures:

    John 7:7 “The world cannot hate you; but it hates Me, because I testify of it, that is deeds are evil.”
    Father, we know that by Your justice and righteousness, You are allowing corruption and evil deeds to be exposed. We know this is why this President is hated. During his administration, evil is being exposed. Those who are in darkness are trying their best to hide it and to project their own sins onto the President. If it weren’t so despicable, it would almost be laughable. They are the ones doing the very same things they are accusing the President of doing! Truly the anti-Christ spirit is the great accuser! Give Americans eyes to see Your truth. Give us the wisdom to know what is right and just. We appeal to You as the Judge presiding over this trial. We know that Jesus Christ is the advocate for Truth. He is the Truth. Evil hates exposure of sin and will fight will all its might to keep people deceived. That is why President Trump is their enemy. Have mercy on our nation and bring us back to Your righteousness. We plead for Your justice.

    Matthew 6:22 “The lamp of the body is the eye; if therefore your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!”. We pray for those with bad eyes to be delivered from the darkness and come to the Light, Jesus Christ and know the Truth so the Truth can set them free.

    1. I loved your prayer Mimi, especially reciting Matthew 6:22. I just had this vision of the New Year of 2020 in the optical realm. Clarity of vision. The ability to see evil more clearly through lies and deception. With our Heavenly Fathers help and assistance, may we repent and to see more clearly what this trial truly represents for ALL American’s! The time has been now given to those that have been praying for evil to be exposed, the truth to be revealed to the American people and that consequences be placed upon people who have served representing our government at the highest levels. No one, Lord, is untouchable in this scheme of lies and corruption. Please allow President Trump to feel a sense of peace regarding all of this. He stands by You, Lord. Please protect him, his family and all who surround him. We pray for their hearts … their minds and their souls. We pray for a complete release of any and all convictions against President Trump. His reputation will not be tarnished by evil doers, Lord. We stand for righteousness today for our President. In Jesus’ Holy Name I pray. Amen

  8. Dear God, thank You for the first ever sitting president who has blessed Israel immensely. You say in Your Word that we are to bless Israel and he has done just that. Additionally, Trump has stood up for Christians more than any other President. Lord, bless him beyond his wildest imagination. And, Father if their are any trolls looking around this website (as we witnessed earlier this week) let them know the way to Heaven is through the shed blood of Jesus. Amen
