Some of our Presidents have gone down in history for letters they wrote.

Ronald Reagan will always be remembered for his moving “sunset” letter, in which he eloquently said farewell to the nation he loved as he began his long descent into Alzheimers. Reagan is also known for his heartfelt letters to his wife Nancy, enough of them literally to fill a book. (In fact, you should read that book –- especially the letter Ronnie wrote to Nancy for their 20th wedding anniversary, maybe the sweetest love letter ever.)

Going back to the early days of our country, John Adams exchanged countless letters with Abigail, his wife, best friend and closest confidant. And George Washington, while working for ratification of the Constitution, wrote a remarkable four-page letter to his nephew in which he laid out his argument for unity.

Abraham Lincoln wrote a letter in which he famously said, “I am naturally anti-slavery. If slavery is not wrong, nothing is wrong.”

Harry Truman is known for a letter he wrote to music critic Paul Hume, who said his daughter Margaret “cannot sing very well” in a bad review of a concert she gave. Truman’s letter was quite something: “...It seems that you are a frustrated old man who wishes he could have been successful. When you write such poppy-cock as was in the back section of the paper you work for, it shows conclusively that you’re off the beam...Someday I hope to meet you. When that happens you’ll need a new nose, a lot of beefsteak for black eyes, and perhaps a supporter below!”

Now President Donald Trump has written a letter for the ages, and the emotion behind it is pretty close to Truman’s. Trump has absolutely had enough and went off on a six-page rant to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on the eve of his pre-ordained Wednesday impeachment.

The letter is MAGNIFICENT.

He literally did write it for the history books, knowing full well that nothing he says will deter Democrats from their ultimate partisan goal. As he says to Pelosi, “...I write this letter to you for the purpose of history and to put my thoughts on a permanent and indelible record. One hundred years from now, when people look back at this affair, I want them to understand it, and learn from it, so that it can never happen to another President again.”

I would be proud for my great-great-great grandchildren to read this letter (if American history is still taught then) and know that I supported this President. I want all to know what really happened. And though the letter expresses Trump's personal point of view, it's based on a great deal of proven fact. How refreshing to see in print what we know to be the truth, bluntly told. Similar observations have been expressed here by me and also by my research/writing staff, who join me in praising the letter.

It was written to protest the action being taken Wednesday –- a “partisan impeachment crusade,” which is exactly what it is. Trump makes it clear that THIS is the abuse of power, not anything he has done. It’s strong stuff: “By proceeding with your invalid impeachment, you are violating your oaths of office, you are breaking your allegiance to the Constitution, and you are declaring open war on American Democracy.” I’d say that by impeaching him for something they know for a fact he did not do, that is exactly what they are doing.

Then it gets REALLY good: “You dare to invoke the Founding Fathers in pursuit of this election-nullification scheme –- yet your spiteful actions display unfettered contempt for America’s founding and your egregious conduct threatens to destroy that which our Founders pledged their very lives to build.” Hallelujah, amen.

Defending himself against the charge of “Abuse of Power,” he says to Pelosi, “You know that I had a totally innocent conversation with the President of Ukraine.” He goes on to point out that he said “do US a favor,” not ME, and “OUR COUNTRY,” not a campaign. “Every time I talk with a foreign leader,” he says, “I put America’s interests first, just as I did with President Zelensky.” He also points out that Zelensky himself said more than once that there was nothing wrong with the call, that he felt no pressure. Trump’s letter goes on to lay out a full defense on the abuse of power charge.

"You are turning a policy disagreement between two branches of government into an impeachable offense,” he rightly tells Pelosi.

He describes what we know Joe Biden actually did in Ukraine. (We know because he bragged about it on camera in front of a live audience.) He tells Pelosi, “Now you are trying to impeach me by falsely accusing me of doing what Joe Biden has admitted he actually did.”

Then he addresses the “Obstruction” charge, calling it “preposterous and dangerous.” He says he had only been “asserting Constitutionally-based privileges that have been asserted on a bipartisan basis by administrations of both political parties throughout our Nation’s history.” He singles out a quote from Jonathan Turley that we have used here: “...if you impeach a President, if you make a high crime and misdemeanor out of going to the courts, it is an abuse of power. It’s YOUR abuse of power [emphasis mine]. You’re doing precisely what you’re accusing the President of doing.”

Trump does not hesitate to ascribe motive to the Democrats’ attempt to undo his election. “Everyone, you included, knows what is really happening,” he says. He talks frankly about Trump Derangement Syndrome and the fact that Democrats just can’t get over losing in 2016. He quotes congressional Democrats who started speaking and dreaming about his impeachment literally minutes after he was elected. He condemns Adam Schiff’s lying “parody” of his phone call with Zelensky that Schiff read into the record as if it were real.

He includes a loooooong paragraph that lists the many accomplishments of his first three years in office and contrasts them with the “indefensible” policies of the Democrats.

Then, fed up with being the target of their projection, he really lets them have it: “You are the ones interfering in America’s elections. You are the ones subverting America’s Democracy. You are the ones Obstructing. You are the ones bringing pain and suffering to our Republic for your own selfish personal, political and partisan gain.” This may be the most insightful part of the letter; charging that his attackers are guilty of the very things they accuse him of. Importantly, when he says this, he’s not only expressing his own view, but that of his millions of supporters, who’ve had reason to think this for a long time.

Of course, the media are already trashing the letter as a “tantrum,” the product of a deranged mind (again with the projection). Pelosi called it “sick.” But Trump’s letter is a brilliant, candid outpouring, a measure of his strength, and, yes, it will go down in history as one of the most remarkable Presidential letters ever written.

    Reading President Trump's letter was a privilege. He expressed truth and was gracious in his criticism.
    Lesser men would have reacted with lack of courtesy and derision, but not President Trump. He simply told the full truth.
    Thank you , Mr. President , for making sure that history has now recorded in your own words what the Democrats have done to jeopardize our nation and the American dream.
    Millions of everyday, working Americans , including me, pray for President Trump daily. On bad days, we pray continuously for God to give all of us strength to endure.

    there no longer is any doubt as to who the libs/communists love themselves. It is patently obvious, they hate America, its citizens, its laws and traditions. they are the domestic enemy. One commentator said "Gloves off" The domestic enemy we are sworn to defend against has identified itself and proudly so. It's time to TREAT them like the enemy they are. He said "No more reaching across the aisle. We have nothing in common with them, nothing." nancy should be in a cell in Atascadero and not in the house. chuckie should be in Bellevue. These are sick people suffering from the late stages of TDS. We have a problem and it needs a swift and vicious end. Yes, 2020 is going to be a debacle of their own creation. They KNEW better and did it anyway. Worst part half of the radicals are NOT in the swamp. We need some massive deportations to save our republic

    I just want to apologize to my President for the injustice he is being put through. At a time when all is corrupt and evil in the world he came forward to try to make things right. After knowing the reputations of all involved due to their trying to get his endorsements over the years to help them in their bids to run for offices. He decided to put a stop to their illegal self indulgences paid for by we the constituents. We unknowingly put them into the offices they now hold only to have them act against our best interests. He knew he was invited to their White House dinners he met the honorable and the dishonorable among them. And now he chose to put a stop to them even if it might not in his best interest. Anyone else would have stood the real danger of losing everything. But Donald Trump is his own financial supporter and has nothing to lose. He has gone above and beyond from the moment he threw his hat in the ring to honor his promise to make America great again. He has even attempted to prove that during the Obama presidency Joe Biden was allowed to go behind the peoples backs to illegally and treasonously allow his son to pretend to be a business man while laundering money in foreign countries for profit. Because of such inquiries into said dealings the Democrats instead of being irate at being deceived have instead chosen to impeach him for daring to bring down all involved. Only he knew how high those involved in it sat. The positions held were by those at the highest levels and they wont topple easily. But he won't give up no matter what price he has to pay. He is a man of a different breed. He speaks openly and honestly and to hell with playing politics. After all he doesn't need to rely on a salary post White House as they all do. He's self sufficient and they come after his support not vice versa. I pray for the sake of my grandchildren he prevails. I want them to know that just because you're crude sometimes that doesn't make you guilty. Sure he could choose his words better but that's not why I voted for him. I voted for him because hes a great business man and sometimes you have to piss people off to get things done. And it's working. Being politically correct is how weve managed to allow a certain Muslim female say shes on her way to impeach the mother fucker. Real classy, huh? For someone to have uttered these words to her son even before a question of impropriety had been raised. Only time will tell. I kinda hope that if his first term is to be found null and void that he will then be the first president to be able to run for 2 more terms. What a glorious win that would be. I could live with that kind of impeachment.

    When Nancy Peloski so rudely said to the U.S. citizens and to the world that she was not going to read President Trumps "sick" letter, how does she know it is sick if she won't read it? Isn't this like when she pushed so hard to get Obama Care in place, saying they should hurry up and get it voted in so that they can then see what is in it?

  • Yvonne Martin

    12/19/2019 03:13 PM

    I cannot understand how they want to impeach a president of the United States but turn a blind eye to Joe Biden. Have they not listened to the quote and seen the video where he admits that ehw will withhold a billion dollars if a certain prosecutor is not fired? Is that not Quid Pro Quo? Was that not impeachable? This is why the leaders of this impeachment movement will have no credence with an informed American public.

    The Bible clearly states,
    Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city.
    Revelation 22:14, NKJV
    Just to make things clear....I'll repeat this, "Blessed are those who DO...His commandments."
    Those who....DO....God's perfect Will.
    So....if you are not DOING....God's Will...then it stands to reason that you will NOT...be Blessed!
    Neither will you go to Heaven
    It's a simple thing really.
    So Nancy..if I were you I would be more concerned about going to Heaven rather than fabricating lies about the President of the United States.
    FYI.
