Trump | Trump Declares Impeachment Inquiry Greatest Witch Hunt in American History, Continues to Win at Everything He Does | Featured

William B. Taylor Jr., acting ambassador for the US to Ukraine, opened a can of worms by testifying (behind closed doors, at that) to having a “clear understanding” that Ukraine and other nations will not receive any military aid from the US unless they pursue investigations that would potentially benefit President Trump.

More specifically, Taylor said the investigations are meant to uncover dirt on Joe Biden, former US Vice President and a 2020 presidential candidate for the Democratic Party, as well as his son, Hunter Biden.

The result?

After other so-called “whistleblowers” (including at least 6 more White House officials) stepped forward to corroborate the claims, an impeachment inquiry was opened against Trump, initiated by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on September 24.

At the heart of the issue is the transcript of a phone call between Trump and Volodymyr Zelensky, the Ukrainian President.

Officially declassified by the White House and made public at President Trump’s insistence, the memorandum (rather than verbatim transcript) does include a snippet of conversation regarding Biden.

However, it isn’t exactly damning.

There’s been a lot of controversy surrounding a statement made by Biden claiming he interfered with an investigation by Ukrainian officials into a Ukrainian energy company that employed his son, Hunter.

Trump did ask whether Zelensky would look into the matter to help resolve whether Biden is telling the truth, but there’s nothing to suggest any abuse of power – or dangling US military aid as a bribe.

Trump expressed his frustration with the situation by calling the impeachment inquiry “The Greatest Witch Hunt In American History!” on Twitter.

It’s an admittedly controversial statement that sparked the usual amount of ridicule. To be fair, it is a hyperbolic take on the situation, as America has seen more than its fair share of witch hunts – both literal and metaphorical.

The most obvious that comes to mind is, of course, the Salem Witch Trials of 1692 to 1963, when around 200 individuals were falsely accused of witchcraft.

19 were ultimately hanged (contrary to popular misconception, very few “witches” were ever burned at the stake, either in America or in Europe), with a 20th later crushed to death.

More recently, there were the so-called “witch hunts” against German immigrants during World War I.

This was extended to include Italian and Irish immigrants, as well as Liberals in general (particularly anyone who expressed anti-segregation sentiment) in 1919 and 1920, in what has since become known as the Palmer Raids.

During World War II (more specifically 1942 to 1945), history repeated itself with the introduction of German and Japanese internment camps.

Following the attack on Pearl Harbor, thousands of German-Americans and Japanese-Americans were rounded up. Then came the McCarthy-era “witch hunts” against homosexuals and suspected Communists.

Is the impeachment inquiry against President Trump a witch hunt larger than any of the above?

Well, no – but it remains a witch hunt nonetheless. And if taken into consideration with the long opposition campaign against Trump, it certainly is being drawn out.

In fact, the whole situation reeks of using hyperbolic accusations based less in fact and more on personal dislike – exactly what happened in the Salem Witch Trials, for example.

Nevertheless, Trump stands strong against the attacks, proving time and time again that he is greater than anything the opposition throws at him.
