  • With eyes on House majority, Dems cautious about impeachment

    Some Democrats who will take the House majority in January are willing to say that President Donald Trump may have committed impeachable offenses. But that doesn’t mean they will try to impeach him — at least not yet. For several reasons, Democrats have been extremely cautious about the “I” word. They know it could backfire politically, and many of them were in office during President Bill Clinton’s impeachment 20 years ago. New York Rep. Jerry Nadler, the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee and the panel’s likely incoming chairman, has called impeachment a “trauma.” Nadler told CNN on Sunday...

    Limpeachment. A description of when you get impeachment from the Democrats based on incredibly LAME possible FEC violations. Civil, not criminal, violations if true which are wildly exceeded by Obama campaign violations which were merely fined. Also involving a charge which the FEC failed to pursue against John Edwards. #Limpeachment

    RUSH: Let’s go to the audio sound bites. I want to first start… Here, grab sound bite No. 3. We put together a montage here of the Drive-By Media pushing impeachment all weekend, and what this is… I mean, this is designed to do exactly what I have been warning everybody was coming. They’re trying to dispirit you. They’re trying to make it harder for you to verbalize your support for Trump. They’re trying to make you doubt him. It’s all about driving his approval numbers down to the thirties. It’s about making you think this is a lost cause....

    According to recent court filings, President Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen told federal prosecutors that he was directed by the then-candidate to pay hush money to two women to help sway the outcome of the 2016 election. Even though Cohen admitted he had previously lied under oath to Congress, ABC and NBC spent part of their Sunday morning news programs suggesting it was all over for the Trump administration. “We now have a president of the United States who has essentially been implicated in a felony by his own Justice Department,” boasted ABC anchor Dan Harris to chief global...

    Was Chris Matthews suddenly struck by some semblance of fairness? Or is the Bill Clinton fan, and the man who has described notorious womanizer JFK as a "hero," reluctant to condemn presidents for their peccadilloes? On his Hardball show this evening, Matthews suggested that impeaching a President over sexual misbehavior would be a "witch hunt." Said Matthews, posing the question to Dem Rep. Hakeem Jeffries: Chris Matthews: 'Witch Hunt' to Impeach Trump for Covering Up Affairs CHRIS MATTHEWS: Do you think you can actually impeach a President for basically covering up sexual misbehavior? I mean, we had this with Clinton....

    WASHINGTON — The latest revelations by prosecutors investigating President Trump and his team draw a portrait of a candidate who personally directed an illegal scheme to manipulate the 2016 election and whose advisers had more contact with Russia than Mr. Trump has ever acknowledged. In the narrative that the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, and New York prosecutors are building, Mr. Trump continued to secretly seek to do business in Russia deep into his presidential campaign even as Russian agents made more efforts to influence him. At the same time, in this account he ordered hush payments to two...

    The liberal networks have figured out a sure-fire formula for guaranteed, Grade-A, Trump-bashing. Invite on a hyper-partisan former US attorney appointed by President Obama, and let them unload. Yesterday, we noted Barbara McQuade on MSNBC, suggesting that President Trump be stripped of [depending on how you interpreted McQuade's remarks] either his presidency, or his US citizenship. Not to be outdone, CNN's New Day on Sunday morning invited on Michael Moore, another former Obama US attorney appointee, and a former Democrat state senator in Georgia. Moore might even have outbid McQuade when it came to making over-the-top suggestions about President Trump....

    Former Nixon White House lawyer John Dean said he thinks Congress will have "little choice" but to begin impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump following a Friday evening court filing involving Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen. [Snip] Dean, who served time in prison for his involvement in the Watergate scandal, was discussing a sentencing memo from the Manhattan US attorney's office, which was the first time prosecutors have said Cohen acted at the direction of Trump when the former fixer made payments to silence women who claimed to have had affairs with Trump prior to his time running for office....

    Democrats are set to take control of the House soon and impeachment has been on the minds of many. But if it’s a path House Democrats ultimately pursue, they could pay a hefty price come 2020, says a former aide to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. "If you try to impeach him without the Republicans coming on board to actually remove him, it’s a waste of time, it's a waste of political capital, and it will lead to the Democrats losing their majority and Donald Trump being reelected,” Christopher Hahn told Fox News’s Tucker Carlson. Hahn said, however, he doesn’t...

    Ticket prices to see former President Bill Clinton and Hillary speak have gone as low as $7 in some locations– and the seats are still empty. Former President Bill Clinton and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton have been touring the U.S. and Canada for months, with dates stretching into mid-2019. Unfortunately for the Clintons, people seem to be quickly losing interest in entertaining their nostalgia and opinions on the current state of the nation.

    The allure of a Mueller report lies in its imagined promise of a single, definitive truth capable of cutting through the haze of lies, confusion and “alternative facts.” But Mr. Corsi’s and Mr. Papadopoulos’s antics are a warning that this hope will inevitably fall short. Conspiracy theorists and prosecutors live in different worlds: The first, unmoored from truth; the second, devoted to proving facts beyond a reasonable doubt. Mr. Mueller has the power to charge Mr. Corsi for lying; he has already done so to Mr. Papadopoulos. Rather than crumbling, though, their falsehoods have continued to spread and grow —...

    Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee are so pleased with reports that Leakgate prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald is about to indict senior White House officials that they want him to lead an impeachment investigation into whether President Bush lied to Congress about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction. "The CIA leak issue is only the tip of the iceberg,” House Judiciary Democrat Jerrold Nadler complains in a message posted to his web site. In a letter asking the Justice Department to expand the scope of Fitzgerald's investigation, Nadler says: "We now have reason to believe that high crimes may have been committed...

    It’s coming, folks; they’ve been laying down the groundwork for years. Yes, Democrats said that they’re not running on impeaching Trump, its bad politics, and how it’s not on the table…right now. Don’t be fooled; it’s going to happen. It may not be in the first 100 days of the next Congress or maybe later, but one way or another, there has to be a serious push to impeach the president because they don’t like him. The liberal base hates him—and they want resistance antics 24/7 now that the Democrats have retaken the House. Removing Trump doesn’t have a prayer...

But the Steyer ad appears to be more focused on swaying the Democrats."Americans rose up this November and rejected Donald Trump," Steyer says in the TV ad. "More unhinged...

    Whatever happened to trying to impeach President Donald Trump? As House Democrats begin laying out the vision for their new majority, that item is noticeably missing from the to-do list and firmly on the margins. The agenda for now includes spending on public works projects, lowering health care costs and increasing oversight of the administration. It’s the balance that Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi is trying to strike in the new Congress between those on her party’s left flank who are eager to confront the president, and her instinct to prioritize the kitchen-table promises that Democrats made to voters who elected...

Trump lawyer, Jay Sekulow, said the questions related to the special counsel investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. “The President today answered written questions submitted by The Special Counsel’s Office,” Sekulow told the network. “The questions presented dealt with issues regarding the Russia-related topics of the inquiry.The President responded in writing.”

    A new documentary series offers an emotional look behind the mask of someone who has stood stoic in the public eye for decades. In the A&E series, "The Clinton Affair," Monica Lewinsky is more forthright than she's been in years about her relationship with former President Bill Clinton. In the A&E series, which premieres this Sunday, Lewinsky talks about the highs of her time at the White House. At one point she describes how she felt being called in by Clinton, "I don't think my heart had ever beat as fast." And the lowest of lows, when she was confronted...

    “Recognize one point,” Pelosi told me during an interview in the conference room of her minority-leader suite in the Capitol late Friday: “What Mueller might not think is indictable could be impeachable.” Pelosi said people should pray for the country as long as Trump is in charge. She’s not sure of his mental condition. She thinks he’s degraded the Constitution and American values.
