“It’s a pun!” the King added in an offended tone, and everybody laughed, “Let the jury consider their verdict,” the King said, for about the twentieth time that day.
“No, no!” said the Queen. “Sentence first — verdict afterwards.”
“Stuff and nonsense!” said Alice loudly. “The idea of having the sentence first!”
“Hold your tongue!” said the Queen, turning purple.
“I won’t!” said Alice.
“Off with her head!” the Queen shouted at the top of her voice. Nobody moved.
“Who cares for you?” said Alice, (she had grown to her full size by this time.) “You’re nothing but a pack of cards!”

We need not recount here the myriad ways that Nancy Pelosi’s so-called “impeachment investigation” is a Constitutional travesty – perusal of the non-“mainstream” media and White House Counsel Pat Cippolone’s letter to the House more than suffice.
The “impeachment investigation” is structured as a Congressional hit-squad, not a bona fide inquiry; it makes even Stalin’s show trials look legitimate in comparison, for at least those were held in public – something the Lavrentiy Beria-resembling Adam Schiff dares not do.
During the Mueller circus we witnessed various folks being charged with “process crimes” totally unrelated to “Russian collusion” – apparently driven by Andrew Weissmann’s attempts to squeeze (false) implicating testimony (against Trump) from the targets, or his retribution if they didn’t succumb to said attempts.
It can be argued that the lack of due process, lack of fealty to procedural precedent, and overall lack integrity, means that by design this “impeachment inquiry” is itself a series of “process crimes” against our Constitution, committed by those who have designed it, and those who are executing it.
Further, those who are “in the know” about what’s going on, and are in a position to do something about it, or at least to blow the whistle about it, are accomplices to these “process crimes.”
After all, if the Democrats were genuine in their professed belief that impeachable offenses were committed by President Trump – yet also remained loyal to the letter and spirit of our history and our Constitution – they would be sensitive to the serious portends of even commencing such an effort.
So if this was a legitimate effort the Democrats would have made sure that the design of, and conduct of the process would be unimpeachable.
This they have not done. Quite the opposite. This “investigation” demonstrates not only the Democrats’ duplicity, but also their desperation.
For you see, extremely serious crimes were committed against the Trump campaign; so now the Democrats and Deep State have placed themselves into a position of (as they see it) having to cover up “by any means necessary.”
