New York Dem Max Rose claims Trump must prove innocence on impeachment

Since the beginning, the American system of jurisprudence said that one is presumed to be innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt by a jury of his or her own peers.  That’s no longer the case — especially if your name happens to be Trump.  So says New York Democrat Max Rose.

“I do not want to be here. This is the last thing I want to be doing,” he said on Friday. “But no one is to blame but the president. The president says he is innocent, so all we are saying is ‘prove it.’ But that is not what they are doing. They are not cooperating, and we need to get to the bottom of it.”

Breitbart added:

Democrat Rose also blamed Republicans for going “deaf, mute, and blind whenever allegations against the president are brought up.”

Rose’s comment mirrors those of Democrats during the Senate confirmation of then-Supreme Court Justice nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh. In September 2018, Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) refused to say whether Kavanaugh was presumed innocent. Hirono instead said that his accuser needed “to be believed.”

Rose’s rhetoric on impeachment has appeared to have shifted dramatically. Last month, the New York Democrat wrote an op-ed in which he urged Democrats to focus on their agenda.

“We are in danger of losing the trust of the American people if we choose partisan warfare over improving the lives of hardworking families,” he claimed.

Sorry, Max, that’s not how it works here.  But then again, we are seeing something I never thought we’d ever see — a major political party engaging in what amounts to a coup d’etat to remove a president simply because they hate him and he won an election.

Worse yet, there are those in the so-called “mainstream media” — like CNN and MSNBC — who are doing the Democrats’ bidding and are now deliberately pushing America to the brink of a second bloody civil war.
