Why independent voter Randy Thomasson opposes Trump's impeachment
"Adam Schiff of Glendale and Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco should be embarrassed to proceed, since they have neither probable cause nor overwhelming evidence of any crime."

Sacramento, California (December 18, 2019) -- In light of today's expected vote of the U.S. House of Representatives to impeach President Donald Trump, Randy Thomasson, an independent voter and president of SaveCalifornia.com, a leading family issues organization promoting moral virtues for the common good, has issued the following statement: 

"If you were falsely charged with a crime, you'd demand due process and evidence. Unfortunately, we're seeing neither of these ethical and constitutional rights in the House Democrats' impeachment push against President Donald Trump.
 
"'Abuse of power' is a fact-free charge, since U.S. presidents are permitted tremendous latitude in their relations with other countries. For President Trump to ask the new Ukraine leader to demonstrate his anti-corruption campaign agenda by investigating how former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, famously enriched themselves in Ukraine, was not only permissible, it was the right thing to do. Ironically, it's the House Democrats who are abusing their power by providing no evidence at all that President Trump committed any crime, yet they're still trying to reverse an election through impeachment.
 
"'Obstruction of Congress,' the second empty charge, is only because the Trump Administration refused to testify and to provide confidential information that the House Democrats' "impeachment inquiry" demanded. Yet numerous presidents, both Democrats and Republicans, have both claimed and used executive privilege, based on constitutional separation of powers. The U.S. Supreme Court has not opined that this is 'obstruction,' and neither should the ruling Democrats.
 
"Impeachment leaders Adam Schiff of Glendale and Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco should be embarrassed to proceed, since they have neither probable cause nor overwhelming evidence of any crime committed by President Trump. This unconstitutional act is likely to backfire on them politically. Perhaps it already has, since independent voters oppose impeachment 49% to 34%.

"As a registered independent, I couldn't vote for Trump, but I am morally obligated to oppose the Democrats' impeachment charade due to lack of evidence. Because evidence is the only fair standard for charging or convicting anybody."
