AFA Action: ‘Enough Already! It’s Time to Acquit.’

Calling on Americans to Contact Senators About Impeachment Trial ‘Sham’

January 29, 2020

TUPELO, Miss.—Enough is enough.

That’s the sentiment of AFA Action (www.afaaction.net), the governmental affairs affiliate of American Family Association (AFA, www.afa.net), regarding the ongoing presidential impeachment saga.

“It’s time to end the Democratic Party’s ill-founded sham show of impeachment against Republican President Donald J. Trump,” said AFA Action Vice President Rob Chambers. “Why? Because this so-called ‘impeachment’ of Trump is unconstitutional and lacking in evidence.”

Congressional Democrats voted in favor of two articles of impeachment against Trump: 1) abuse of power and 2) obstruction of Congress. As noted by Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s personal lawyer, there are no federal laws regarding either one of these charges, Chambers shared with AFA’s action-oriented friends and supporters on the AFA blog site, The Stand.

The U.S. Constitution (Article II, Section 4) states the limits of impeachment are ‘treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors,’” Chambers continued. “What the Democrats are alleging are not impeachable offenses—even if true. In addition to unimpeachable charges, Democrats have presented zero evidence proving their allegations against the president. White House counsel Pat Cipollone argued before the Senate that senators ‘will find that the president did absolutely nothing wrong.’ The impeachment of Trump is based only on partisan bias.

“Furthermore,” he added, “Senate Democrats and some Republicans, such as Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT), want to call for witnesses to testify before the Senate, but their request is not sincere and would only result in dragging out an already baseless trial. The Democrats have undermined not only the U.S. Constitution but also the election of a candidate who was duly elected by the will of the voters.

“The will of the people spoke on Election Day 2016. America elected Donald J. Trump, who upset the D.C political apparatus of both parties when he received 306 electoral votes over Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton’s 232 electoral votes. Democrats and #NeverTrump Republicans are attempting to overshadow the truth of that election with a mountain of lies. They are still trying to win an election that they lost nearly four years ago. It’s past time for the Senate to shut down this impeachment show and acquit the president of the United States.”

AFA Action is urging Americans who agree that “enough is enough” to contact their senators and tell them to acquit President Trump.
