Was he ever really president? Trump says he is still President in Impeachment docs

Raw Story: Over the weekend, it was reported that former President Donald Trump lost his legal team when they disagreed on the defense strategy. The old team wanted to focus on the “constitutionality” argument, which says that Trump can’t be impeached because he’s no longer in office. Instead, Trump wants to argue that he is innocent because he won the 2020 election.

The brief submitted by the Trump legal team Tuesday argues that President Joe Biden wasn’t legitimately elected as the president of the United States.

“The whole brief, for one, never once describes Donald Trump as the former president,” Maddow observed. “It describes him over and over again as the 45th president, as if he is still the president. They never describe him as the former or previous president. Apparently, he thinks he still is the president.”

“The brief argues that the election results that voted Trump out and Biden in, it argues that those results are, and I quote, ‘Suspect,'” Maddow continued. “It argues that when President Trump told his supporters on the day of the attack that he had actually won the election in a landslide, well, they argue in their brief today that there’s no evidence to say that’s false. Who can say, really?

That claim that President Trump won the election somehow and that President Biden isn’t really the president, he’s a pretender and he’s stolen it, and Trump is the rightful president. I mean, that was the basis for the mob attack on the Capitol on Jan. 6th. The former president is still trying to advance that claim. He spelled out today in black and white, typos and all, that that’s going to be part of his defense in his impeachment trial that starts next week.”

  1. The irony is that it torpedoes the Republican ‘Process Defense’ where they try to avoid looking at the evidence arguing that you cannot impeach a ‘private citizen’. What a pack of weasels.

    BTW here is the actual text of the Constitution. Note, the use of the word ‘AND’ meaning that post term privileges are equated with serving in office. Trump still gets a pension and a staff.

    “Judgment in Cases of Impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from Office, *AND* disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor,”

  2. Also Trump can to argue that if the zionist entity now they have two PM, why we can’t have two presidents ?? 🙂

  3. Has anyone tried,… just typing up a full confession and then handing to him, and saying it’s a really huge wonderful document that is perfect in every way, and now it just needs the signature of the most important genius in the world ?

  4. Trump “will be our President FOREVER and no one can take that away from us.” – Steven Pearce, Chairman of the Republican Party of New Mexico.

    Never underestimate the religious fervor and the propensity for apocalyptic end-times craziness of the Christian-Zionist Trumpsters. That’s also why they’re essentially a death cult that looks forward to a transformative apocalyptic conflict that will usher in a “new age” which will be the end of the USA as we know it and the beginning of some kind of world theocracy. Then, may Heaven help us all…
