Introduction – Jan 16, 2020
This website DOES NOT support President Trump. However, we suspect that Democrats trying to impeach the president may unintentionally be handing him another term in office.
As psychic Craig Hamilton-Parker has pointed out, Trump could paint efforts to impeach him as part of a broader conspiracy and use it to portray himself as a champion of ordinary Americans against the “deep state”.
Of course, he’s nothing of the sort but moves to impeach Trump could provide him with a golden opportunity to portray the president as such. Thereby providing him with much campaign mileage and another term in the White House. Ed.
Trump’s Senate trial could backfire on the Democrats

It was a ceremonial, symbolic today. Democrats would have you believe it a hugely important one too. It was indisputably a rare moment. For only the third time in US history, a president will now face a Senate trial.
Democrats sounded incredulous at claims they’d delayed handing over the impeachment articles for their own political gain.
Instead, Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House, insisted the extra time had given them valuable space to uncover new, incriminating evidence.
Among the documents they released over night, were texts alleging the former US ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch, was placed under surveillance as part of Donald Trump’s pressure campaign.
One letter, allegedly from Rudy Giuliani also requested a meeting with Ukraine’s president “as personal counsel to President Trump and with his knowledge and consent”.
Their 11th hour revelations though, only served to add more fuel to the Republican argument that they’re clutching at straws, trying to find someone or something to make the case they’ve failed to convince anyone but themselves on.
The fact is, the ball is now in Republicans court and they don’t want a protracted game, peppered with some stretched out penalty time.
They’ve made clear they don’t think they need to hear from new witnesses – something Democrats are desperate for. That could mean no Rudy Giuliani, no John Bolton.
