The Democratic Party’s path to impeachment has taken some criticism for its secrecy. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff defended his secretive, behind closed doors approach to the impeachment by likening this phase of the investigation to a “grand jury.”” Schiff told CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday, “We want to make sure that we meet the needs of the investigation and not give the president or his legal minions the opportunity to tailor their testimony and in some cases fabricate testimony to suit their interests.” But the impeachment path is looking more like the pattern of a third-world country coup.
Congressmen Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and John Garamendi (D-CA) have confirmed that Democrats are discussing jailing those who refuse to testify against the president. Tlaib told Deadline Detroit that there were serious conversations taking place in the Democratic Caucus about the logistics of “detaining’ someone if they refused to testify. In a CNN interview, Garamendi said, “I think it’s time to call in the sergeant-at-arms and march them off to our little jail, which we do happen to have. Let them sit there and cool off for a while.” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has inferred that she wants to keep the investigation tight and simple so that Americans can understand what they are doing. Translated: control the narrative.
Our ministry partner William Agbeti has survived six coups in West Africa, and he foresees one coming here in America. Agbeti says, “Coup plotters in the US may build up widespread dissension to culminate with an election, then they open up old wounds! Highly powerful plans that the coup plotters in the US are using and will repeatedly use are fake events or fake flags, including fake news! What could likely be responsible for the “big day” for a coup in the US? The enemies of state currently are clearly making it impossible for Trump to govern. This means government machinery may grind to PLANNED halts. Trump may be declared unfit to rule, there will be calls for his impeachment, fake pollsters will continue to churn out unscientific research findings on his unpopularity and image ratings.”
The Democrats desire to keep the proceedings of their investigation secret. They can call who they want to testify and control the narrative with the news media because they are the mouthpiece of impeachment. The facts can be manipulated to sway public opinion because all the news surrounding it comes from a central source with distributed talking points. In a nation where transparency is valued, all this inquiry is done in the dark. Similar to the Song of Moses in Deuteronomy 32:28-29, Americans appear as “a nation without common sense, utterly lacking in discernment. O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!” Impeachment is a political reflection of public opinion. We cannot be silent about the things done in secret. Speak up.
