This week – for the first time in American history – a presidential candidate debate and a presidential impeachment hearing were held on the same day. While one is supposed to be an official proceeding of the U.S. government and the other a political gathering, the two events are inextricably linked.

Watching House Intelligence Committee Democrats in Washington and 10 Democratic presidential contenders on the stage in Atlanta work in unison on their anti-Trump resistance effort makes it obvious that this entire impeachment hoax is a political stunt intended to damage President Trump before the 2020 election.
