    Rep. Eric Swalwell, a Democrat on the Intelligence and Judiciary committees, reacted to acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney's remarks that aid to Ukraine was in fact tied to President Trump’s wish for an investigation into the 2016 election. "He co-signed the President's confession, I guess," he told reporters as he left the Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility at Capitol Hill. Swalwell reiterated that Trump still deserves a fair process even though he believes the President has confessed. "We have a confession from the President," Swalwell said. "When a suspect confesses you can reduce the number of witnesses you...

    1000 Days And Counting - Trump & The Longest Ongoing Coup In History, Or Is It A Revolution? Or both? Trump rails against impeachment inquiry as his supporters see a 'coup' (Oct. 10, 2019)The American coup against Donald Trump (22 hours ago) It sure feels like a coup. However, Coup d'Etat's typically occur suddenly and attempt to remove/replace a leader (or several leaders), whereas a Revolution often occurs over a longer period of time in an attempt to change the fundamental system of government and society at large.

  • Senate Intel chair: Whistleblower hasn't agreed to testify before panel

    Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.) on Wednesday told reporters that a whistleblower at the center of the House impeachment inquiry hasn't yet agreed to meet with his Senate panel. Asked if his panel would look into the content of the whistleblower's complaint — which is focused on President Trump's attempts to get the Ukraine government to investigate the Bidens — Burr said he first had to "go through the process of the whistleblower complaint." "I don't know," he added, asked how long that would take. "Tell me when I'm going to get access to a whistleblower who has...

    It's rather a miracle, actually, that Trump was able to negotiate anything with so many domestic enemies out to get him 24/7. It couldn't be more obvious that most Democrats and their media shills would rather Trump not succeed with China (or anything) if that meant his reelection. Forget the prosperity and peace of the nearly two billion citizens of both countries, not to mention the rest of the world, linked inextricably as they are to the two largest economies. Orange Man must go. Trump Derangement Syndrome has turned into a pathology more severe than paranoid schizophrenia. It's as if...

    Full title: Gregg Jarrett: Latest Pelosi-Schiff impeachment ‘witch hunt’ is venomous affront to constitutional principlesThe quixotic quest to impeach President Trump is not only anathema to the fundamental principles of due process, but constitutes a full-frontal assault on the procedural protections inherent in the “due process” clause of the Constitution. Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her chosen marionette, Rep. Adam Schiff, are operating in the shadows of secrecy. Their authority does not derive from the House of Representatives itself upon a full majority vote. Instead, they have commandeered impeachment power by anointing themselves as the sole determinants. They alone have chosen...
  • Gallup: Congress Approval, Support for Impeaching Trump Both Up

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- As Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives work through an impeachment inquiry regarding alleged abuses of office by President Donald Trump, approval of Congress is now at 25%. That is up from 18% in September, prior to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announcing the impeachment inquiry following news of possible wrongdoing by the president in communications with Ukraine. The increase in approval of Congress over the past month is the result of a 15-percentage-point jump among Democrats (from 19% to 34%) as well as a smaller increase among independents (from 19% to 25%). Republicans' rating of Congress...

    The White House is launching a new effort to slow the speeding Democratic impeachment push, but its noncooperation strategy is being constantly thwarted by a daily stream of explosive secrets being spilled behind closed doors on Capitol Hill. Current and former officials are painting an ever more damning picture of a wider than originally perceived scheme by President Donald Trump and his crew to pressure Ukraine that they warned could amount to a trampling of US law. Vice President Mike Pence launched a new effort Tuesday to bolster White House hopes of stalling the House inquiry long enough for Trump...

    The Hill ^ | October 15th, 2019 | By Brett Samuels
    The White House, the Pentagon and President Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani on Tuesday all refused to comply with House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry subpoenas, escalating the fight between the administration and Democratic lawmakers. Democrats set a Tuesday deadline for Defense Secretary Mark Esper, Giuliani and the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to turn over documents related to Ukraine. Three House committees also requested Vice President Pence hand over documents by Tuesday, though no subpoena had been issued. The refusals from top administration officials were unsurprising after the White House counsel's office sent a letter to top Democrats...

    The partisans at The Washington Post pretended in a front-page Sunday "news" article that somehow, President Trump was losing his marbles in rage, going "beyond his often-untethered bounds." Readers were supposed to be highly disturbed about his mental state after learning he held a raucous rally in Minneapolis and said supposedly crazy things like how the Democrats are carrying out "a brazen attempt to overthrow our government." What is this attempt to impeach and remove Trump, if not overthrow him? Democrats might argue that even if Trump were removed, Vice President Pence would remain and, thus, there would be a...

    If House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is anything, she is the poster child for term limits. But because she’s been sucking up taxpayer money in salary and benefits for decades now, she knows how ‘the system’ works. In particular, while most of her Garbage Party caucus goes to sleep at night having dreams about impeaching President Trump, Pelosi (we hope) tosses and turns in angst and anguish because she knows what her voters don’t: There is no way she can get it done. And why? Because even among her own members she doesn’t have the support. She ain’t got the votes.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) teed off against the House impeachment inquiry on Tuesday, marking his first comments since Congress returned from its two-week break. "House Democrats are finally indulging in their impeachment obsession. Full steam ahead," McConnell said during a speech from the Senate floor, adding that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) had "crumbled" to the "left-wing impeachment caucus." "I don't think many of us were expecting to witness a clinic in terms of fairness or due process. But even by their own partisan standards, House Democrats have already found new ways to lower the bar," McConnell added.

    Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she will make public Tuesday evening her party's plans on whether the House will take a formal vote to authorize the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump that she announced last month. When asked at a news conference Tuesday if she will hold a full House floor vote on authorizing the inquiry -- as Republicans have called on her to do -- Pelosi told reporters, "I'll be talking about that later today after I meet with my colleagues."

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi continued to stand firm Tuesday, insisting she will not stage a vote on the House floor to officially launch an impeachment inquiry into President Trump. Trump and his Republican allies have been pressuring Pelosi to hold a formal vote to begin the investigation — a move they believe would grant them more power and influence in the process, including the ability to call and subpoena their own witnesses. Last month, Pelosi formally launched an impeachment inquiry into Trump after months of resisting calls from her caucus to do so, but she has faced pressure to hold an...

    Romney holds himself out as a voice of conscience, "deeply concerned" about Trump's Ukraine call. Ok, fine. What about Schiff's secretive hearings? What happened to the public's right to know? Has anyone heard Romney demand that the hearings be opened up? Has anyone heard him take a stand for for transparency, open government and due process? Or is Romney's tender conscience act just a put-on?

    House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) said House Intel Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) wants to impeach President Donald Trump behind closed doors in an interview Monday with FOX Business Network's Maria Bartiromo on 'Mornings With Maria.' "Well, this is part of Adam Schiff's -- it's like a kangaroo court he set up, but they've got this shroud of secrecy, where they want to drip out things that they want to allude to, they make false accusations to try to," Scalise said. "And so, why Adam Schiff continues to hide in secret the Volker testimony, he was already starting to...
  • Rep. Angie Craig tells town hall she wants to 'keep an open mind' during impeachment inquiry

    EAGAN, Minn. (FOX 9) - Minnesota Rep. Angie Craig has become a target of President Trump and his administration after flipping a GOP seat last year. After Minneapolis hosted the President and Vice President in Minneapolis last week, and the Vice President hosted an event in her district, Craig used a town hall meeting to respond. Back on Sept. 24, Craig joined other House Democrats in calling on Congress to open an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump. Monday night, however, she told the room that the inquiry is only a small percent of what she is focusing on when...

    President Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, told Fox News he will not comply with a congressional subpoena to turn over all documents related to the phone call between Trump and Ukraine central to impeachment hearings against the president, as the deadline for cooperating expires Tuesday. Giuliani's attorney, Jon Sale, who he retained to represent him in matters relating to impeachment said his client would not abide by the subpoena "because this appears to be an unconstitutional, baseless, and illegitimate, "impeachment inquiry,"" according to a letter sent to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Tuesday. "The subpoena is overbroad, unduly...

    Officials in Ukraine reportedly opened an investigation into an energy company that employed former Vice President Joe Biden’s son long before President Donald Trump’s July 25 nothing-burger of a telephone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that spurred the Democrats’ haphazard, increasingly Kafkaesque impeachment inquiry. The time element of the revelation, devastating as it is to the 2016-election-nullification push disguised as an impeachment process, has been largely ignored by the mainstream media which is overly preoccupied –as usual— attacking President Trump. The information came last week from investigative reporter John Solomon, who recently was hired as a Fox News...
