(CNSNews.com) – White House counsel Pat Cipollone said Tuesday that Democrats are intent on stealing not one, but two elections, by impeaching President Donald Trump just months before the election through a partisan process.
Speaking on the Senate floor, Cipollone said the founding fathers have said that a partisan impeachment is like stealing an election. He called it the worst nightmare of the framers of the Constitution.
“There’s an election in almost nine months. Months from now, there's going to be an election. Senators in this body the last time had very wise words. They echoed the words of our founders - a partisan impeachment is like stealing an election - and that’s exactly what we have. We have, talk about the framers’ worst nightmare,” he said.
“It’s a partisan impeachment that they delivered to your doorstep in an election year. Some of you are upset because you should be in Iowa right now, but instead we are here, and they are not ready to go, and it’s outrageous, it’s outrageous,” Cipollone said.
“The American people won't stand for it. I will tell you that right now, they’re not here to steal one election. They’re here to steal two elections. It’s buried in the small print of their ridiculous articles of impeachment. They want to remove President Trump from the ballot. They won't tell you that. They don't have guts to say it directly, but that’s exactly what they are here to do,” he said.
“They’re asking the Senate to attack one of the most sacred rights we have as Americans - the right to choose our president in an election year. It’s never been done before. It shouldn’t be done,” Cipollone added.
“Now, the reason it’s never been done is because no one ever thought that it would be a good idea for a country, for our children, for our grandchildren to try to remove a president from a ballot, to deny the American people the right to vote based on a fraudulent investigation conducted in secret with no rights,” he said.
“Well I could go on and on, but my point is very simple, it is long past time that we start this so we can end this ridiculous charade and go have an election,” Cipollone concluded.
