Scheme involves invalidating the voice of voting citizens
Still smarting from the drubbing she took, the Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic has gone full-bore on impeachment for President Donald Trump, who royally trounced the scandal plagued former senator in 2016.
Undoubtedly the extremist newspaper that delights in hammering Republican officials, considers it justified retribution for the 1998 humiliation of Bill Clinton. He was impeached and disbarred, but not removed from office, for suborning perjury to a grand jury and obstruction of justice, connected to his dalliance with a young White House intern — causing the name Monica to become a verb. This was Bill Clinton looking the nation in the eye and swearing to a falsehood, later disproved by the stain on her notorious blue dress. (Scroll down to FBI report.)
To reinforce the newspaper’s case for impeachment, an opinion commentary imbued with braggadocio by leftist lawyer Paul Eckstein, titled, “I helped impeach Arizona’s governor. It’s time for Congress to do the same with Trump,” topped the editorial page.
Known for frequently representing the Democrat Party, Eckstein basks in the memory of co-prosecuting Arizona Gov. Evan Mecham, who in 1986 was underestimated by his opponents just as Donald Trump has been. A former state senator and successful businessman, Republican Mecham was victorious in a three-way general election with a Democrat and registered Independent, that set the status quo on its ear. In the primary Mecham trounced the powerful House Speaker and wheeler-dealer Burton Barr, who had the backing of the GOP establishment, even though he admitted lying about a “temporary tax” that turned out to be permanent.
Gov. Mecham, who served from January 5, 1987 to April 4, 1988, was removed from office following a conviction in the impeachment trial on charges of obstruction of justice and misuse of government funds — money Mecham maintained was private. Though a later criminal trial acquitted Mecham of the charges, the damage was done, and he was replaced by an inept Democrat Secretary of State, via the line of ascendancy in Arizona.
When the people spoke at the ballot box, it was time to show them who was boss…and it wasn’t them. As we’ve seen, impeachment is the slick process Democrats employ to invalidate an election of popular Republicans.
Now an octogenarian, Eckstein has his vengeful memories to give him a ‘boost.’ He’d get more benefit by grabbing a plastic bottle and swigging down the nutrient rich sauce for seniors.
