By Townhall. The Democratic Party has been trying to oust Donald Trump since day one. It’s been an unhinged pursuit that was finally captured in one sentence by Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY): “He is a dictator.” Nadler said of the president. Yeah, and this is an impeachment move by Democrats that isn’t political or partisan in any way; it’s not a cause of celebration. Please—this was done to appease the base and yes, the personal agendas of House Democrats. They tried to make Russian collusion into a thing. It failed. And now we’re off on this Ukrainian phone call where Trump supposedly threatened to withhold aid unless a corruption probe was opened into Hunter Biden’s board position at Burisma. This case is shoddier than the Russian collusion allegations that have been exposed as media myths. There is no evidence of Trump-Russia collusion, though for two years we were told the walls were closing in on this administration.
There is no such thing as an elected dictator. Nadler and his ilk have just shown what many of us already knew, which is that the impeachment push itself, not Trump’s actions, are what’s really corrosive to the Constitution and the institutional integrity of the country. The Democrats have no case. It’s a partisan witch-hunt, which is why the president has rightfully made things very difficult when it comes to this circus. There was no evidence for the collusion goose chase. There is nothing to the quid pro quo allegations.
"He is a dictator. This must not stand," Rep. Nadler says in wrapping up his portion of the case.

‘Stunned’ Sen. Collins objected to Nadler’s impeachment accusation in note to Roberts
By Fox News. One House Democrat’s accusation amid the Trump impeachment trial “stunned” even the most moderate of Senate Republicans, reportedly prompting GOP Sen. Susan Collins to write a note to Chief Justice John Roberts about decorum on the floor of the upper chamber.
Collins, R-Maine, is the latest to signal her concerns, after impeachment manager Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., asserted earlier this week that GOP senators were engaged in a “cover-up.”
Collins told Politico she was “stunned” by Nadler’s comments, and confirmed to the outlet that she wrote a note that made its way to Roberts after a tense back and forth between Nadler and White House Chief Counsel Pat Cipollone.
“It reminded me that if we were in a normal debate in the Senate, that the rule would be invoked to strike the words of the senator for impugning another senator,” she told Politico. “So, I did write a note raising the issue of whether there’d been a violation of the rules.”
Collins said she gave the note to the secretary for the majority, Laura Dove, and “shortly thereafter, the chief justice did admonish both sides. And I was glad that he did.” (Read more from “‘Stunned’ Sen. Collins objected to Nadler’s impeachment accusation in note to Roberts” HERE)
