Pelosi’s impeachment is about entrapping Trump officials

President Trump is right in protecting those who work for the executive branch and him from a transparent attempt at entrapment.

Oct. 9, 2019, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in support of White House Counsel Pat Cippolone’s letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) calling out the impeachment inquiry as lacking basic due process protections for the accused and witnesses:

“We spent three years with the Mueller investigation where people who supported Donald Trump were prosecuted had to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on lawyers on completely fictitious grounds, a conspiracy theory that the Trump campaign worked with Russia, and to subject Trump officials to similar costs and liabilities without them being afforded basic legal protections is a travesty of justice. It is clear that there are no grounds for impeachment and that this Speaker-driven kangaroo court is designed to create those grounds through claims of obstruction of justice. This is not dissimilar to Mueller’s witch hunt, whose investigation was what generated the prosecutions on process crimes unrelated to the original inquiry. America deserves better than a politically driven attempt to remove the President from office and President Trump is right in protecting those who work for the executive branch and him from a transparent attempt at entrapment.”
