This sort of Shiff Shit is what our Founders warned us about

A great observation from Freedom Works:

The Framers of the Constitution Warned Against a Partisan Impeachment Process
Alan Dershowitz of Harvard Law School, writes in The Hill, “A partisan impeachment vote is exactly what the Framers feared.” Dershowitz emphasizes the exceptional and unique power of impeachment. “Impeachment is an extraordinary tool to be used only when the constitutional criteria are met. These criteria are limited and include only ‘treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.’”

Knowing the intent of the Framers of the Constitution, Dershowitz paraphrases a major concern of Alexander Hamilton that partisan politics will be used to remove an elected president. “Hamilton warned of the ‘greatest danger’ that the decision to move forward with impeachment will ‘be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties than the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.’ He worried that the tools of impeachment would be wielded by the ‘most cunning or most numerous factions’ and lack the ‘requisite neutrality toward those whose conduct would be the subject of scrutiny.’”

“[M]ost cunning” has been House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), who has conducted a secret investigation and appears to have selectively leaked damaging reports of allegations of misconduct by President Trump. For sure, the most numerous factions are the House Democrats that have finally voted for the ground rules on an impeachment inquiry – with every Democrat but two voting to continue. Dangerously, Schiff, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), and the Democrats have and are intentionally creating a constitutional crisis, foreseen by the brilliant Alexander Hamilton.

Much more at the site - an excellent analysis. This impeachment needs to be put down now before they get any other ideas. President Trump won the election fair and square - the Democrats should be doing their jobs and representing their constituents instead of wasting millions of taxpayer dollars on this soft coup.
