House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Democrats launched an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump this week based on a complaint from a whistleblower.
Democrats announced that they were ramming ahead with impeachment before they ever read the complaint and transcript of the call Trump had with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky back in July.
On this call, Trump asked Zelensky about alleged corruption involving former Vice President Joe Biden and his son.
While the liberal media has gone ballistic over the call, an explosive discovery is proof the House impeachment inquiry is politically motivated — and Trump has the law on his side.
During a segment on Fox News’ “The Five,” co-host Jesse Watters pulled out a copy of a United States treaty with Ukraine for “Mutual Legal Assistance.”
Bringing out a copy of the treaty on-air, Watters made the point that Trump has “firm legal underpinning” to ask Ukraine to inquire about a possible criminal matter.
“Before we talk about that Juan, I brought something for you,” said Watters.
“Oh, please,” Williams mocked.
“I have found, from 1999 to 2000, a treaty with Ukraine signed by Bill Clinton … on mutual legal assistance and criminal matters, which basically establishes a range of cooperation between the two governments of Ukraine and the United States about making testimony available, making people available, making documents and records available and assisting in the cooperation of mutual criminal matters,” Watters said.
Watters’ point was that under this treaty, which was signed by former President Bill Clinton, Trump is on safe legal ground.
“Under that then to your point about the Obama team and Hillary Clinton team under that same treaty asking for Ukraine help to investigate Donald Trump would fit underneath the same treaty,” co-host Dana Perino asked.
“Right, so if that is an investigation that is a counterintelligence investigation, that does not fall under criminal investigation, because that’s what that was under Barack Obama,” Watters explained. “And, remember, there were no basis for those inquiries, either. If you are going to say that that’s okay, then what Trump did is okay, too.”
“Oh my gosh. OK you win. I give up!” Williams exclaimed.
It’s pretty amazing — and comical — that a Bill Clinton-signed treaty appears to give legal protection amid Democrats lately impeachment push.
On this call, Trump reportedly asked the Zelensky to investigate Biden and his son, Hunter, over shady business dealings with a Ukrainian gas company.
This week, the White House released a 5-page transcript of the call, which does not mention anything about “quid pro quo” or the U.S. withholding aid to Ukraine if they did not investigate Biden.
The Department of Justice also announced on Tuesday evening that it opted not to investigate Trump over the phone call.
The Office of Intelligence Community Inspector General found that the “whistleblower” had a “political bias” in favor of one of Trump’s rivals in the 2020 presidential election.
And, adding even more fuel to the fire, the whistleblower filed a complaint about a call that they never heard, and Democrats want Trump impeached over a call that they also never heard.
One Republican has already publicly announced they support congressional Democrats’ impeachment inquiry against Trump.
