    South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham on Tuesday questioned Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch about what it would take to impeach President Trump. The Republican senator used a portion of his time for questions at the Senate Judiciary Committee's hearing to probe Gorsuch about the impeachment process.

    GORSUCH: Respectfully, I’d suggest that does not represent the body of my work. I’ve written two thousand — I’ve participate in 2,700 opinions over ten years. And if you want cases where I’ve ruled for “the little guy,” as well as “the big guy,” there are plenty of those, Senator. The Ute Indian tribe — FEINSTEIN: Would you be willing to submit some of them? It’s hard to read 2,700 cases — [crosstalk] GORSUCH: Oh, I’ll name a bunch them right now. [crosstalk] I’m sorry, Senator, of course. Ute 5 and 6. Fletcher. The Rocky Flats case, which vindicated the...
  • Democrats blast FBI director after probe revelation

    FBI Director James Comey’s testimony Monday that the bureau has been quietly investigating possible links between associates of President Donald Trump and Russian officials since the summer enraged Democrats who already blame him for rattling the 2016 campaign’s closing days. For the first time, Comey confirmed that the FBI had opened a probe into the Trump campaign in July, the same month he called an unusual news conference to announce the agency had finished its investigation into whether Hillary Clinton mishandled classified information — and three months before he scrambled the White House race a second time by announcing that...
  • Every Eye Will Be On FBI Director James Comey As He Testifies Today On Capitol Hill

    FBI Director James Comey is scheduled to testify today or rather present the FBI’s findings to lawmakers on Capitol Hill on President Trump’s wiretapping allegations. Unfortunately the findings are highly “classified” and will not be available to the public; however, we will be informed of the outcome of the wiretapping or surveillance findings. I, myself, have researched this enough that I have formed my own conclusion. It does not take a rocket scientist to do it, and I believe from the facts that Trump Tower was under surveillance during the 2016 campaign. THE FOLLOWING WILL TELL YOU WHY I THINK...

    The Hill ^ | January 7, 2017 | Nikita Vladimirov
    Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Saturday called for the Senate to not hold confirmation hearings for President-elect Donald Trump's Cabinet picks until after the completion of an ethics screening. "Cabinet officials must put our country's interests before their own. No [confirmation] hearings should be held until we’re certain that’s the case," the Massachusetts Democrat tweeted. [Snip] "This is ridiculous," Warren tweeted, "[Trump's nominees] can’t drag their feet on ethics paperwork while their Senate friends try to run out the clock."

    Al.com ^ | January 7, 2017 | Howard Koplowitz
    The rules set by Sen. Charles Grassley, a Republican from Iowa and chairman of the Judiciary Committee, schedule Sessions' hearings for two days, with one day mostly devoted to testimony from Sessions and the second day featuring testimony from nine witnesses -- five called by Republicans and four called by Democrats. The witness lists are still being finalized; a Judiciary Committee spokeswoman told AL.com that the names should be made public on Monday, a day before the hearing. After the two days of testimony, the 16-member committee will then vote whether to send Sessions' nomination to the full Senate, where...

    Associated Press ^ | Dec 16, 2016 12:46 PM EST | Mary Clare Jalonick
    Determined to hold around two dozen Senate seats in 2018, Democrats will use the coming series of confirmation hearings to try to distinguish themselves from President-elect Donald Trump’s billionaire nominees and convince working-class voters who elected him that he’s not on their side. While Democrats have little leverage to stop the Republican’s picks in the Senate, they still plan a fight. To highlight what they say is the hypocrisy of Trump’s campaign promise to be a champion for the economically struggling little guy, they’ll focus on the nominees’ wealth, ties to Wall Street and willingness to privatize Medicare, among other...

    Washington Examiner ^ | • 8/18/16 10:58 AM | By SARAH WESTWOOD (@SARAHCWESTWOOD)
    Members of the House Judiciary Committee are set to question FBI officials next month about allegations of perjury involving Hillary Clinton's conflicting statements to Congress last year. Witnesses at the hearing could include FBI Director James Comey, according to USA Today, which first reported the panel's plans. A Judiciary Committee spokeswoman confirmed the hearing to the Washington Examiner and said lawmakers plan to approach the issue at an FBI oversight hearing the panel holds each year. Rep. Bob Goodlatte, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, joined Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the Oversight Committee, in a push to outline the case...

    A former brigadier general revealed on Fox News Monday some new information about the White House's role in U.S. Central Command's skewing of intelligence to downplay the threats of ISIS and Al Qaeda. Last week, a House Republican task force concluded in a 15-page report that U.S. military leaders altered intelligence reports "to paint a rosier picture" of the U.S.-led fight against ISIS than intelligence analysts believed was warranted. The report blamed “structural and management changes” at the intelligence directorate for the distortions, but stopped short of explaining WHY the changes were made. According to Defense News, "the problems followed...

    FBI Director James Comey said Thursday that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may not have been "sophisticated enough" to understand the classified markings on emails she sent and received, which explains why did didn't know she was breaking the letter of the law. Under intense questioning from Republicans, Mr. Comey said Mrs. Clinton’s public explanations of her behavior were not true. But he said his investigators couldn’t find evidence that Mrs. Clinton intended to break the law, which he said is the key to making a criminal case. [Snip] Democrats praised Mr. Comey for his findings, and blasted the...

    One of the weapons used in a deadly Mexican shootout last year was traced to the U.S. government's disastrous Fast and Furious operation. Three Mexican police officers were killed in the shootout. A Justice Department summary provided to two Republican congressional committee chairmen Tuesday found that a WASR-10 rifle, purchased six years before in the U.S., was one of three rifles fired in the July 27 assault in the town of Valle de Zaragoza. It was not immediately known which weapon caused the officers’ fatal wounds. Nevertheless, Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives officials traced the WASR rifle to...

    **SNIP** Talking to the government, or giving a "proffer," relinquishes the few advantages a defendant has: He gives up his constitutional privilege against self-incrimination, and more, he gives the government the defense's version of the case up front. While Pagliano is surely in an unenviable, nail-biting position, we can draw some inferences from recent events. Whether he had zero potential liability, or some liability, he's probably not a "target." Why? Because if he were, his attorney would probably not let him talk to the government, and the government would probably not give him immunity. Remember, the government is parsimonious with...

    Just days after endorsing Donald Trump for President, New Jersey Governor and former presidential candidate Chris Christie is calling on Senate Republicans to give President Obama's Supreme Court nominee (who hasn't been named yet) hearings. Tweet from @ZekeJMiller: Christie says the GOP Senate should hold hearings on Obama's SCOTUS nominee As a former prosecutor, Christie knows the Senate has no constitutional obligation to give Obama's nominee hearings, nor does the Senate have any obligation to confirm a nominee. Further, the Senate Judiciary Committee has already confirmed hearings will not be held and sent the following letter to Senate Majority Leader...
