Image: Dems, mainstream media rush to “convict” Trump of impeachable offense involving Ukraine but ignore 1999 treaty REQUIRING cooperation in criminal matters

By:   /  Natural News

The Left-wing Washington establishment media and Democrats, the political party they serve, have been working overtime for a week trying to convince Americans that President Donald Trump committed an impeachable offense for a) something he never did; and b) something former Vice President Joe Biden did do.

Specifically, they are claiming that the president engaged in a “quid pro quo” when he allegedly withheld military aid from Ukraine unless the government helped his administration investigate a business deal involving Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.

According to a transcript of a July phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Zelensky, no such quid pro quo was offered or mentioned. And the military aid the U.S. promised Ukraine was, in fact, delivered. Nothing in the transcript suggests anything different.

But there is another aspect to the assistance that Trump was seeking: A 1998 treaty signed by then-President Bill Clinton and ratified by the U.S. Senate requiring Washington and Kiev to cooperate on criminal investigations.

As James Howard Kunstler noted on his website

Someone in Impeachmentville is not paying attention. Of course, diverting the rubes is exactly the point of the latest CIA operation to negate the 2016 election. Has nobody noticed that there is a treaty between Ukraine and the USA, signed at Kiev in 1998 and ratified by the US Senate in 2000. It’s an agreement on “Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters.”

The treaty states: “The Treaty is self-executing. It provides for a broad range of cooperation in criminal matters. Mutual assistance available under the Treaty includes: taking of testimony or statements of persons; providing documents, records, and articles of evidence; serving documents; locating or identifying persons; transferring persons in custody for testimony or other purposes; executing requests for searches and seizures; assisting in proceedings related to restraint, confiscation, forfeiture of assets, restitution, and collection of fines; and any other form of assistance not prohibited by the laws of the requested state… ([etc].”

What part of this does House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and the rest of the impeachment-happy Democrats not understand? This is a treaty; under our Constitution it’s the same as a duly-passed law. It must be followed. (Related: GET READY: It’s time to start taking names of all the traitors pushing the fabricated “impeachment” coup against this nation.)

Is our republic about to die?

So, if President Trump, using this “self-executing” treaty, wanted to know about possible criminal corruption involving any American in his/her dealings with Ukraine, regardless of whether that person was a former vice president or the son of a former vice president, he could do that. Legally. 

In fact, by law, he’s required to do that. And by treaty, the government of Ukraine is required to cooperate — which it has, apparently.

According to presidential lawyer Rudy Giuliani, a number of Ukrainians have provided him with sworn testimony claiming that Joe Biden actually did what he bragged about in a video during a Council on Foreign Relations seminar last year: He threatened to withhold $1 billion in loan guarantees from Ukraine if that government didn’t fire a prosecutor who was investigating criminal corruption involving a company that appointed Hunter Biden to their board — at $50,000 per month.

The Democrats have to know this; Pelosi has to know it. She also knows about the treaty between the U.S. and Ukraine, because she’s been in Congress for decades (and has become a poster child for term limits — like quite a few other members). 

And yet, they are running full-tilt towards impeachment or, at least, that’s what they are saying. We won’t know if they are serious until they hold an actual vote in Congress to begin an impeachment inquiry, which is required by the Constitution.

This Ukraine ‘scandal’ is just the latest attempt by Democrats and their deep state allies to overturn the 2016 election. If they are successful, our republic is dead.

      🇺🇸⭐️⭐️🇺🇸 Prepare for every contingency. Never underestimate the enemy. This whole impeachment thing has violated every single rule, and law concerning impeachment. Therefore there is zero evidence the socialists will work within the law to go to senate trial. It is my considered opinion that they will just say there is no reason to bother with a senate trial. He is guilty. They will just charge the socialist loyalists in the NSA, CIA, and FBI to remove him forcefully from office. @ the very least they will have some skullduggery up their sleeve. President Trump supporters are not uneducated.

      Guilty of far more than that they are guilty of discrimination saying Republicans can’t vote. All Republican states and districts are then not represented. This is not just unfair, it is illegal.

      This is obviously just another big brother fake drama to keep the herd looking into the woods instead of at the road.

      It is just another smoke screen, more entertainment for the NPR and talk radio crowd to be hysterical about while entertaining the nation of dullards.

      The problem for them is that the herd is not biting this time. Much as the corporate monolith media tries to make this story the focus, even those pretending to paint President Trump as evil know better this time.
      The american public is stupid, but not THAT goddamned stupid. People know that the big story here is not that Trump suggested to a foreign power that they investigate a potential criminal act , something that is at the very least an impropriety, but that the big story here is that Biden is a very shady character.
      As I say, the herd is white stupid and will follow whatever moves, but this time the herd smells a rat.
