“Democracy dies in darkness” is supposed to be a motto, not an agenda

They don’t call it a “shadow government” for nothing.

The president does not need to be accused of violating a specific law; evidence is whatever the House of Representatives wants it to be. The credibility of any witness, especially one wearing the uniform of the United States military, cannot be questioned. Ditto for the motives of any witness. Hearsay is Exhibit A; New York Times articles, Exhibit B.

But what truly animates the current impeachment crusade is the same ploy that’s been used against Donald Trump since 2016—a drumbeat of attacks from nameless, faceless partisans tasked with destroying Trump first as a candidate, now as the president. Anonymity gives cover to their political agenda under the guise of courage and “speaking truth to power.” Democratic lawmakers, the news media, and NeverTrump Republicans—unable to make a compelling case for Trump’s removal aside from Orange Man Bad—wield the incognito heroes’ charges as incontestable fact.

It is, for the most part, an anonymous coup.

For more than three years, anonymous accounts of wrongdoing by Trump and his associates have been weaponized by the same news media now desperate to conceal the identity of the latest covert agent working to oust Trump. (The attorney for the “whistleblower” declared in January 2017, the “coup has started.”)

I gotta say, I absolutely LOVE Julie Kelly for refusing to bestow undeserved dignity or credence on the Deep State’s leaker, instead putting sneer quotes around every instance of the word “whistleblower.” A woman after my own heart, that one. Follows, a long if only partial litany of leakers, traitors, and manipulators granted anonymity by the self-same Enemedia apparatchiks who joyously revel in outing, doxxing, hounding, and otherwise persecuting truth-tellers of a dissenting political stripe, be they elected officials, bureaucrats, or even private citizens. Exhibit A:

Well, hey, whatever helps them to advance Teh Narrative and protect their Democrat-Socialist leash-holders, don’tchaknow. Back to Kelly’s closer:

History is littered with bloodless coup attempts. But in the Trump era, enemy combatants not only are spared bloodshed, they don’t even have to give their names. That’s not courage or “speaking truth to power”—it’s calculated cowardice that would be out-of-bounds in any criminal trial, job setting, or personal relationship. Impeachment rules aside, most Americans will, and should, view this as patently unfair and a legitimate danger to our system of government now and in the future.

Personally, I’m not at all confident that “most Americans” do, or will. But hopefully enough of us will so that the illegitimate overthrow of the government and the nullification of millions of votes via skullduggery and deceit can be forestalled. Because Kelly is correct: the now-and-future danger to our system of government, already badly warped and abused, IS real, and imminent. We’ll find out in due course, I suppose.
