The Democrats are heading down a disastrous impeachment path, and I am not even sure if they fully grasp what a complete nightmare this could be for them.
If the Democrats opt to impeach President Trump, the impending Senate trial could be an absolute nuclear bomb for the entire Democrat Party, and the Deep State.
If President Trump has a trial in the U.S. Senate, his lawyers would have free-reign to subpoena the likes of Obama, Hillary, Comey, Strzok, Brennan, and the entire Deep State gang.
Trump could force every one of those traitorous goons to go under oath while his legal-eagle team grills them.
It almost makes you wish the Dems go through with it, right?
The president’s defense in the Senate, accordingly, must engage, spotlight, scrutinize and expose the entire course of odious conduct by the president’s corrupt attackers, from their first spinning of the Russia collusion hoax,through the latest chapter in their attempted coup.
Everything will be relevant in the Senate trial, and everyone, no exceptions, should be subpoenaed and interrogated under oath. That means Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, John Brennan, James Comey, Peter Strzok, and the entire gang behind the coup.
That includes Strzok, his girlfriend Lisa Page, Clapper, Brennan, Comey, and whatever Deep State apparatchiks lied to the FISA judge to enable a spying operation on the Trump campaign and transition team — a crime without precedent and one that massively outweighs anything that could credibly be alleged against President Trump.

This could be Trump’s only shot to actually take all of these big Deep State players down.
His legal team could aggressively defend their client, and call the entire “soft coup” gang before the Senate, and finally get all of them on record, speaking about what they did and didn’t do, to try and destroy President Trump.
He could even subpoena the DNC server as evidence in his trial.
Here is the most important benefit of this broad and aggressive approach to the president’s defense: in confronting all those who have ceaselessly sought to reverse the 2016 election, President Trump’s legal team this time will have a critical tool thus far denied them: the power to subpoena any and all persons, including all those who were elbow-deep in the Russia collusion hoax. Unlike during the feeble and tedious investigation conducted by the Washington elite’s chosen operative, Robert Mueller, every single such person will be sworn and aggressively, publicly interrogated under penalty of perjury, by formidable trial counsel.
What the anti-democratic authors of this latest putsch attempt failed to realize — in their fury of blind hatred — is that the Republican Senate majority will be in command of the scope and duration of the trial and that the truth-revealing power of the subpoena, followed by public testimony under oath, is the surest route to exposing lies and crimes.

Can you imagine Rudy Giuliani or Jay Sekulow grilling Hillary Clinton on bleaching her computer while under a congressional subpoena, or Barak Obama on what he knew about the FISA warrants and spying on President Trump?
That would be glorious.
Not only that, but Trump could also subpoena Hunter Biden and Joe Biden and ask them under oath about the Ukraine scandal.
Folks, I don’t know if the Dems are willing to do down that road.
Of course, Mitch McConnell could just decide to give any House impeachment efforts the “Merrick Garland” treatment in the senate. That’s unlikely, but nothing legally binds him to hold the trial.
That’s because of a Constitution that designates the Senate with the “sole power to try” an impeachment that comes from the House. But nowhere in America’s founding document is the trial said to be a mandatory act.

Sure, it would be an unprecedented move in U.S. history for Republican leader Mitch McConnell to table Trump impeachment proceedings without allowing any significant debate or a vote to convict a president from his own party, thereby removing him from office. But it’d be well within his power.
Conventional wisdom still says there has to be a Trump trial. McConnell, after all, said in March that the Senate would have “no choice” but to hold one if the House voted for impeachment.
But political conditions can change quickly in the Trump era. And lawmakers from both parties say they wouldn’t be surprised if the Kentucky Republican ultimately made the same calculation he did in 2016 when President Barack Obama nominated Merrick Garland for the Supreme Court — only for the Democratic president to see his pick axed by McConnell under the auspices of letting voters decide who should fill the vacancy in the next election.
