Democrats who use Father Alexander Hamilton’s comments to counteract their attacks on President Donald Trump take Hamilton’s words out of context, according to one of Trump’s lawyers.
Member of the House of Intelligence Committee Rep. Adam Schiff of California and Chairman of the House of Justice Committee Jerry Nadler of New York used the words of Hamilton in the Trump Senate case.
“It wasn’t meant to be regular or strategically used in the power of impeachment, but it has been put in the Constitution for a cause,” quotes Alexander Hamiltonhttps:/t.co / WgILTa4g5B pic.twitter.com/n2T1I2IUmO— BBC News (@BBCWorld) on January 22, 2020. — The President of the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff, opened the Trump #ImpeachmentTrial.
So Adam Schift admits his actions are meant to void the votes of millions of American voters because he doesn’t like their choice. Alexander Hamilton warned about political parties weaponizing Impeachment and here we have it! https://t.co/iFtbcvRbLV

“As a man who has no concepts of private life is hopelessly desperate, audacious in heart, has considerable skills, has the advantage of military habits— dispotic in his ordinary behavior — known to have privately scoffed at the principles of freedom— as such a person mounts a common hobby horse — to be active in the cries of danger to freedom— to use all opportunities of himself.
The quote was “unapplicable and totally out of place,” according to The Washington Post, Sekulow told reporters on Thursday.
“They did not intend for the power of impeachment to be used frequently or as a matter of policy… but they put it in the constitution for a reason”

Would you think Democrats lie down to take Trump out of office?
Democrats “used this famous quote about the prosecution from Alexander Hamilton,” Sekulow said, according to Fox News.
“It wasn’t the prosecution. Five years after the Constitution was adopted it was a letter addressing political disputes between Hamilton and Washington.” “So they’re not simply taking the wrong rule, but are taking the wrong quotations from the Founding Paths, “he said.
“It would be fitting if they quoted the correct laws and the language of the founding fathers,” said Sekulow.

Our Founding Fathers would be appalled:
HAMILTON: called impeachment “the greatest danger” when decided “by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt”

We are in the midst of what Alexander Hamilton called “the highest threat”— the danger of political prosecution for our country.
This #ShamImpeachment is the true power misconduct.

— House Judiciary GOP(@JudiciaryGOP) January 23, 2020 The Republican Senator Mike Lee, of Utah, wrote in a Jan. 7 Op-Ed for Fox News:’ In Federalist 66, Alexander Hamilton claims that the divide between the House and its members and the Senate’s powers of suspension, of’ guardization against risk, because of the proliferation, of the false spirit.’
“The fact that our founding fathers saw fit to ward off this was a prescient and providence by putting a final opinion on prosecution and dismissal not in the hands of the House of Representatives, the Tribunal, any tribunal or even a jury, but in the Senate,” says Lee.
The]constitutional writers understood that the prosecution— for good or bad — is an intrinsic political act,” he said.
“James Wilson, one of the first magistrate judges of the nation and the leading architect of the Constitution, described the prosecution as” both political, political and misdemeanor crimes and political punishments.
