The Unfairness Of It All

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY OCTOBER 25, 2019

         A DAY AFTER PRESIDENT TRUMP URGED CONGRESSIONAL REPUBLICANS TO GET TOUGHER IN THEIR OPPOSITION TO IMPEACHMENT, THIS HAPPENED: A LARGE GROUP OF REPUBLICAN HOUSE MEMBERS STORMED A SECRET MEETING HEADED BY ADAM SCHIFF AND HEARING ONLY PEOPLE WHO FEEDS THEIR IMPEACHMENT NARRATIVE. THEY PROTESTED THE UNFAIRNESS BECAUSE NO REPUBLICAN WAS ALLOWED TO BRING IN WITNESSES, NOR COULD THEY CROSS EXAMINE ANY WITNESS.

         SOME OF THOSE TESTIFYING HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED AS NEVER-TRUMPER REPUBLICANS, OR HAVE TIES TO DEMOCRATS.

         FAIRNESS IS A FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLE MOST AMERICANS UNDERSTAND. IN THE MATTER OF IMPEACHMENT, DEMOCRATS ARE NOT AFTER FACTS; THEY CARE ONLY ABOUT UNDOING THE RESULTS OF THE LAST ELECTION, OR WEAKINING THE PRESIDENT SO HE WILL LOSE NEXT NOVEMBER.

         MY VIEW IS NEITHER IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN BECAUSE THE ENTIRE PROCESS HAS BEEN SECRET AND UNFAIR. THE WATERGATE HEARINGS WERE PUBLIC AND TELEVISED. THIS OUTRAGEOUS SCENARIO RESEMBLES WHAT HAPPENS IN DICTATORSHIPS. UNLESS ONE IS A RANK PARTISAN, THE UNFAIRNESS OF IT ALL WILL RESONATE WITH THE PUBLIC AND SHOULD BENEFIT THE PRESIDENT. I’M CAL THOMAS.
