If you are paying attention to the Washington circus that is
the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump’s handling of the much
maligned Ukraine call, this is what real collusion looks like: a media largely
committed to advancing the goal of Democrats to severely damage or remove him
from office, a series of at-first private testimonies by people who appear to
have similar motives and connections to Democrats and/or anti-Trump forces, and
now a new book by “Anonymous,” which claims the president has a bad
attitude and is difficult to work with.





Where to start?





“Anonymous” is a self-admitted coward. He, or she,
apparently still works within the administration. A true patriot would resign
and go public so their accusations could be tested.





Writing a book like this while still on the public payroll
is more than cowardly, it is also an attempt to disregard, disrespect, and
dishonor the people who voted for Trump.





Next comes the testimony starting Wednesday of carefully selected “witnesses” before California Rep. Adam Schiff’s “Intelligence” Committee (now there’s a play on words).





These testimonies are designed to advance the left’s
narrative about Ukraine, but only the narrative that fits their agenda and not
the one featuring a real quid pro quo involving then-Vice President Joe Biden
and his overpaid son, who held a directorship with a Ukraine energy company
while his father was vice president and involved in U.S. policy on Ukraine.





At the time, the elder Biden urged Ukraine to fire its top
prosecutor, with the threat of withholding U.S. aid.





Having failed at other attempts to smear the president, this
is the Democrats’ last gasp. They must know that even if they draw up dubious
articles of impeachment, the Senate won’t vote to convict and remove Trump from
office.





This could create one of the biggest political backfires in
history if the public perceives it as unfair and driven by bias, ignoring
evidence that would be to the president’s benefit.





Take one example of many that unmask the objective of the
anti-Trumpers, which has been obvious at least since the 2016 election.





The attorneys for the so-called “whistleblower,”
the person who heard from someone who listened to the call between Trump and
the president of Ukraine, have numerous Twitter postings stating their
intentions. Here are some of them taken directly from their tweets.





From Mark S. Zaid: “#coup has started. First of many
steps. #rebellion #impeachment will follow ultimately.” This tweet was
posted just after the president was sworn in and before he had done anything.











In the summer of 2017, Zaid tweeted “We will get rid of
[Trump]” and “as one [coup] fails, two more will take their
place.”

















He repeats these sentiments and objectives over many months.
Zaid also predicted CNN would be an ally in the pursuit of impeachment.





Anyone examining that network’s “reporting” can
attest to the accuracy of his prediction.





The other attorney for the whistleblower, Andrew Bakaj, also
appears to be an anti-Trumper. He has tweeted that the president is
“unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. That’s the
standard [in the] 25th Amendment.”











All of this is the stuff of show trials and banana republics.





The left does not have a single issue on which they can defeat the president, most especially when it comes to the economy and the lowest unemployment in nearly 50 years, and as Trump claims, “the highest stock market ever.”





If the public comes to see this as the partisan assault that
it is and a power play to nullify the will of the voters who elected the
president in 2016—assuming they pay attention during the coming holidays—this
could prove the greatest political disaster for them since Walter Mondale lost
49 states to Ronald Reagan in 1984.





And they will deserve it.
