On Episode 8 of War Room: Impeachment, hosts Stephen K. Bannon, Jason Miller, and Raheem Kassam outline the new “elevator pitch” Trump supporters can use “to get beyond talking about the process” and definitively debunk the whole impeachment inquiry.
The argument comes down to three key points: policy, precedent, and process.
The first point co-host Jason Miller outlines relates to the underlying political motives of impeachment: “The impeachment fight is about President Trump’s America First foreign policy. It’s a policy dispute being driven by unelected career bureaucrats combined with politically motivated Capitol Hill Democrats seeking to undermine President Trump’s foreign policy.”
He continued to the second key argument, focused on how no impeachable offenses ever occurred: “The facts are our friends here. All witness testimony thus far shows President Trump did nothing wrong. And he certainly didn’t do what he’s being accused of doing: withholding Ukraine aid. It wasn’t withheld. You wouldn’t get this from the selective media leaks from Speaker Pelosi that you see on the front page of the New York Times or Washington Post or CNN 24 hours a day. This is why everything should be open and transparent, so that people can hear the truth.”
Lastly, he reiterates the argument made by the guest of Episode 6 of War Room: Impeachment David Rivkin: “The Democrats’ impeachment push is unconstitutional. Constitutional Law scholars, we had one of them on the show on Saturday, say Capitol Hill Democrats’ efforts are completely unconstitutional since they haven’t taken a House vote to even begin proceedings. In fact, the same Constitutional scholars argue there shouldn’t be any subpoenas or any hearings until this vote is held.”
Bannon summarizes this argument into three different categories: “precedent, policy, and process.”
