Final Word from Thursday, September 26, 2019

Donald Trump released the smoking gun yesterday that is supposed to convict him of "high crimes and misdemeanors." Nancy Pelosi said on Tues. in announcing an impeachment inquiry that if there was a "phone call by the president of the United States calling upon a foreign power to intervene in his election," this would "benefit him politically" and be a "breach of his constitutional responsibilities." A declassified readout of Trump's call with Volodymyr Zelensky is the last nail in Trump's coffin, or so say the Democrats. Miloš Zeman should be shaking in his boots. He, too, had a phone conversation "calling upon a foreign power to intervene in his election." The readout hasn't been declassified, but Zeman admitted to asking Trump on Dec. 6, 2016, to appoint Ivana Trump as U.S. ambassador to Prague. She would have been one of Zeman's biggest champions. Czech lawmakers should learn from Pelosi and put this at the top of their long list of Zeman's unconstitutional acts.
