    One of special counsel Robert Mueller's top prosecutors is offering advice to House Democrats for their impeachment proceedings against President Trump. Andrew Weissmann, a former Justice Department official who was known as Mueller's "pitbull" during the Russia investigation, made his debut Wednesday as an NBC News legal analyst. He explained how the House Democrats faltered in their first day of public hearings and should refocus their proceedings from Ukraine to United States election interference if they want to make an effective case against Trump. "The key thing that the Democrats have to think about is, where are you going to...
  • Are Democrats building a collapsible impeachment?

    The Hill ^ | 11/13/2019 | Jonathan Turley
    As impeachment hearings begin, some have raised dubious objections to the process from a constitutional basis. Former acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker suggested there can be no impeachment since “abuse of power” is not a crime, while University of Chicago Law Professor Steven Calabresi argued that President Trump was denied the Sixth Amendment right to counsel in the closed hearings held by House Democrats. Neither argument is compelling. The fact is that, if proven, a quid pro quo to force the investigation of a political rival in exchange for military aid can be impeachable, if proven. Yet the more immediate...

    Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman is living, breathing, testifying proof the Deep State exists. He has shown his true colors and the agenda of the self-appointed elites who think they run this country.Let me state categorically that I am not implying dual loyalty or questioning Vindman’s patriotism or even his devotion to duty as he sees it. I’m questioning his judgment about where that duty lies and the execution of those duties as a military officer and civil servant.The term “deep state” is now highly charged politically. The right takes it as a given, the left sometimes denies its existence....

    < SNIP> In April of this year, Senators Grassley and Johnson sent a letter to Attorney General Barr asking him for any information on the following (or perhaps this was their way of encouraging him to look into something). What they specifically asked about was related to some text messages from corrupt FBI Agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page referring to a “CI guy” in the White House – Next Grassley and Johnson provide the exact text messages they wanted Barr to look into. The text from Peter Strzok says “Do we want Joe to go with Evania instead of...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Donald Trump can make his case directly to the Intelligence Committee, but she vowed to protect the whistle-blower whose complaint triggered the impeachment inquiry of the president’s actions with Ukraine. “The president could come right before the committee and talk, speak all the truth that he wants if he wants — if he wants to take the oath of office or he could do it in writing,” Pelosi said in a interview with CBS’s “Face the Nation” broadcast on Sunday. “He has every opportunity to present his case.”

    The New York Times ^ | 11/13/2019 | Noah Bookbinder
    Another insane opinion piece from the NY Times: Impeachment is a constitutional procedure that should be reserved only for extraordinary times with the most extreme examples of abuse of power by a president. That is why, in our country’s history, only two presidents have been impeached. But this is one of those times. The evidence of wrongdoing by President Trump is overwhelming. The impeachment inquiry has been conducted so far in a sober, responsible way. As Wednesday’s hearing made clear, the witnesses are credible and clear, and the story they tell is alarming. All members of Congress are now compelled...
  • Material Witnesses Must be Heard – or House Impeachment is a Fraud

    AMAC ^ | November 12, 2019 | Robert B. Charles
    Openness is not just glancing through a keyhole – but entering the castle. In legal terms, a credible, legitimate impeachment inquiry must entertain material witnesses, just as a credible criminal proceeding or grand jury must do. To shutout key witnesses upends due process, makes a mockery of the Sixth Amendment, and disserves the American people. Yet that is what is happening. To be specific, the impeachment process is now officially off the rails. The longer this charade continues, the bigger a debacle it becomes. No impeachment in US history ever started in the House Intelligence Committee, or under a cloak...
  • Himes: Trump’s Abuse of Power, Corruption ‘Makes the Nixon Impeachment Look like Child’s Play’

    On this week’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT) said President Donald Trump’s abuses of power made former President Richard Nixon’s impeachment “look like child’s play.” Himes said, “We are looking at abuse of power and a level of corruption here that makes the Nixon impeachment look like child’s play. Remember, Nixon wasn’t the guy who actually broke into the Democratic National Committee headquarters. He just knew about it. Nobody died in Ukraine because Nixon held up aid to a very vulnerable nation. Nixon didn’t fire any ambassadors because Giuliani didn’t like that ambassador.”

    Attorney Alan Dershowitz warned that Americans should be “frightened” of the House’s impeachment investigation, accusing Democrats of trying to “create crimes out of nothing.” “Whether you’re from New York or the middle of the country, you should be frightened by efforts to try to create crimes out of nothing,” Dershowitz said Sunday on John Catsimatidis’ radio show. “Well, I spent the afternoon yesterday searching the federal criminal statutes from beginning to end. I couldn’t find the crime.” The House’s impeachment inquiry was launched in September amid Democratic concerns that Trump leveraged $400 million in military aid to pressure Zelensky to...

    Democrats have tried to impeach every elected Republican president since Dwight D. Eisenhower. They’ve never succeeded and there’s no reason to believe this time is different. As Bill Mitchell tweeted: “If China thought there were any real chance of Trump’s impeachment of loss in 2020, they wouldn’t be negotiating and making trade deals now. The stock market and China know the same thing. Trump won’t be impeached and he wins in 2020.” Why this practice persists is that they are continually reluctant to accept political outcomes they don’t like. David Hirsanyi argues this point well as well as illustrating perfectly...

    The word “coup” shifted to a new level of formalized meaning last week when members of the political resistance showed up to remove President Trump wearing military uniforms. Not only did U.S. military leadership remain silent to the optics and purpose, but in the testimony of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman he admits to giving instructions to ignore the instructions from a sitting United States President. In the absence of push-back from the Joint Chiefs, from this moment forth, the impression is tacit U.S. military support for the Vindman objective. Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman, a National Security Council official, testified before...

    EXCERPT According to (State Department official George) Kent’s newly-released transcript, the State Department official told congressional investigators that, akin to former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Maria Yovanovitch, he was worried that “the U.S. Government chose to move an ambassador based, as best she [can] tell, on unfounded and false claims by people with clearly questionable motives, at an especially challenging time in our bilateral [relations] with a newly elected Ukrainian President.” “Potus wanted nothing less than President Zelenskiy to go to the microphone and say investigations, Biden and Clinton,” Kent testified. “That was the message. … Zelenskiy needed to go...

    During his appearance on Fox and Friends, Gregg Jarrett discussed the revelations that the “whistleblower’s” attorney was tweeting about a coup against President Trump in January of 2017. “Whistleblower” attorney, Mark Zaid, also stated, “I predict @CNN will play a key role in @realDonaldTrump not finishing out his full term as president.” Gregg points out that this information, in addition to the fact that Zaid was the attorney who Rep. Schiff’s committee recommended to the whistleblower, shows that this is a witch hunt to try to impeach President Trump. “All of the witnesses who will be called have already testified...

    Washington — A top National Security Council official who listened to President Trump's July call with the president of Ukraine told lawmakers he "promptly" brought concerns about the call to White House lawyers, but did not think "anything illegal was discussed." Tim Morrison, the outgoing senior director of European and Russian affairs at the National Security Council, is testifying before committees leading the impeachment inquiry on Capitol Hill on Thursday. He has emerged as a central witness to the events at the center of the inquiry, particularly the administration's policy toward Ukraine. CBS News learned the substance of his opening...

    The House’s resolution should have been the easiest for Republicans to go along with. None of them did. So this is how the impeachment of President Donald Trump is going to go. The House this morning cast its first vote in a process that could lead to just the third Senate impeachment trial of a president in U.S. history. When Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced plans for the vote earlier this week, there was at least some promise of drama: Which House Democrats would defect? How many Republicans might defy Trump to back a formal impeachment inquiry that a few of...
