An author and political activist argues that Donald Trump is the greatest president of his lifetime – and that Adam Schiff and the Democrats are conducting a "totalitarian show trial" to try to bring him down.
On Wednesday, House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff (D-California) (pictured) held the first public hearing in the Democrats' attempt to impeach the president. Democrats said yesterday's session clearly showed Trump has abused the powers of his office; whereas Republicans argued the two witnesses had, at best, conveyed secondhand accounts of the phone call central to the impeachment inquiry.

David Horowitz is a former member of the Communist Party who became a staunch conservative. He describes the Trump presidency as "the greatest presidency of my lifetime – without question."
"There's no competition [for] what this guy has done for our economy, for our borders, for our veterans," he adds.
Horowitz, who currently runs David Horowitz Freedom Center, says it's clear to him that Democrats are reacting to Trump's success.
"What Adam Schiff … and Pelosi [are doing] – this is what the Russians did," the former communist tells OneNewsNow. "This is a totalitarian show trial that they're conducting against Trump. They hate him; they've wanted to impeach him since he was elected; they organized a coup d'état at the intelligence services. It's now like Star Chamber proceedings, just like the Inquisition."
Ultimately, he adds, Trump's fate is in the hands of the American people. "Everything depends on the American people – everything. That election will decide the fate of this country," he emphasizes.
A 'huge problem' for Dems
Gary Bauer of American Values says despite what Democrats are saying about the first day of testimonies, "it is difficult to overstate just how weak" the case against President Trump is. He calls that a "huge problem" for Schiff and Pelosi.
"Neither of yesterday's opening witnesses have ever talked to the president," he writes in his November 14 End of Day report. "They never talked to White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney. They never talked to Rudy Giuliani. Nor were they on the July phone call with President Zelensky."
Bauer continues to make his case: "In one of the more revealing moments yesterday, Ambassador [William] Taylor admitted that he had little of substance to offer when he said, 'What I can do here for you today is tell you what I heard from people.'"
Such "hearsay," according to Bauer, would never be allowed in court. "But the left's excitement over this additional hearsay is just more evidence that it is desperately trying to manufacture something that doesn't exist," he concludes.
