    SAN DIEGO, Calif. — Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), who has been a leading opponent of President Trump on Capitol Hill, told thousands of Democratic activists and officials “to get ready for impeachment.” Speaking at the California Democratic Party’s annual convention in San Diego, Waters said that she believes special counsel Robert Mueller, who’s been helming the investigation into Russian interference into the 2016 election, is “getter closer” to figuring out who colluded with Russia. "I say it is time to get ready for impeachment," Waters said to roaring applause. “I cannot wait and I’m counting on special counsel Mueller to...

    RUSH: I checked the email during the break. An interesting question: “Rush, you haven’t talked about the second indictments that have been handed down against Paul Manafort,” and I’m paraphrasing the email. The question basically is these things still have nothing to do with even the campaign. Everything Manafort’s being indicted for happened before the campaign, and then a letter writer very astutely mentioned that Mueller is changing the venue from Washington, D.C., to the Eastern District of Virginia, which is where Manafort lives. While that is an interesting aspect of this, the email says, “What is going on?” Folks,...

  • Ex-CIA Chief Lashes Out At Nunes: “He Abused His Office” (John Brennan)

    Newz Sentinel ^ | 2-4-2018
    Former CIA Director John Brennan had harsh words for House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes on Sunday morning, calling the controversial four-page “FISA memo” created by Nunes’ staffers “exceptionally partisan” and that Nunes has “abused the office” by refusing to allow Democrats on his committee to make their own rebuttal document public. “That Devin Nunes and Republicans denied the ability of the minority, the Democratic members of that committee, to put out its report is just appalling. I think it, it really underscores just how partisan Mr. Nunes has been. He has abused the office of the chairmanship of HPSCI. And...
  • The Endgame for Impeachment

    The $64,000 question in American politics today is this: will President Trump be impeached and removed from office? The short answer to this question is: very likely not. Nonetheless, there are a variety of ways in which the impeachment drama could play out. It could end with a whimper or a bang. To a large degree, this is in special counsel Robert Mueller's hands. Most importantly, there is the question of whether or not Mueller will recommend charges against the president and/or impeachment proceedings. On one hand, there is ample evidence that Mueller is friendly with the fired FBI Director...

    Democrats won’t like having their own dirty laundry thrown back at them. Fox News is digging into the Bill Clinton presidency with the gripping new documentary series “Scandalous,” a no-holds-barred look into the numerous controversies that plagued America’s 42nd president–and ultimately led to his impeachment. Watch the latest video at Episode 2, set to air Sunday, January 28 at 8 p.m. ET, will focus on former Arkansas state employee Paula Jones’ unsuccessful suing of then-President Clinton for sexual harassment, as well as the emergence of then-first lady Hillary Clinton in the public eye.

    The latest batch of text messages between the pair of embattled FBI agents at the center of the Special Counsel’s probe into President Donald Trump‘s campaign and alleged Russian collusion reveals that one of the agents may have seen his participation in the investigation as a path to “impeaching” President Trump, said several congressional sources.The recent text messages between FBI special agent Peter Strzok and FBI attorney Lisa Page were turned over last week by the Department of Justice to six congressional committees. Those text messages, as previously reported, shed new light on the political leanings, unvarnished bias and possibly...

    This April, Harper will publish Chasing Hillary, a new political memoir from New York Times writer-at-large Amy Chozick, EW can confirm exclusively. The book will provide a remarkably intimate and deeply personal portrait of Hillary Clinton as she withstood two dramatic losses for the presidency. Chozick’s book is the result of a decade’s worth of reporting on the former U.S. Secretary of State. Chozick’s front-row seat to Clinton’s presidential campaign implosion in 2008 led to her getting assigned the “Hillary Beat” through to 2016, when she’d once again face a painful defeat, this time in the general election to Donald...

    Historically, the first midterm elections in a new president's first term result in major losses for the president's party. The most famous recent example was in 1994, following the 1992 election of Bill Clinton. In spite of Clinton's oratorical skill, favorable media coverage, and appealing looks and smooth demeanor, the 1994 midterms were a disaster for the Democrats. Led by the "villainous, scary" Newt Gingrich, Republicans won 54 House seats. In what came to be called the "Republican Revolution," they wrested congressional control away from Democrats for the first time since 1952. Once in control, Gingrich instituted his Contract with...
  • Under the New Trump Standard, Why Wasn't Obama Impeached?

    01/18/2018 6:04:02 AM PST · by Kaslin · 28 replies ^ | January 18, 2018 | Larry Elder
    In the era of President Donald Trump, Democrats think presidents should be impeached over policy differences. In Trump's case, the Democrats accuse him of winning the election by "colluding" with Russia to win. After nearly a year of investigations, there does not appear to be any evidence. Yet many Democrats have already called for impeachment. In truth, Democrats want this President out because they don't like him or his policies. One of Trump's major campaign promises was to build a "wall" to protect our southern border. Never mind that, in 2006, 26 Democratic senators -- including Hillary Clinton, then-Sen. Barack...

In Sunday’s episode of the Téa Leoni-led CBS drama, President Conrad Dalton’s (Keith Carradine) uncharacteristically irrational behavior means that he could be removed from office on account of the 25th Amendment.

    It should have been an easy Monday interview for Maryland Congressman Jamie Raskin (D). After all it was on MSNBC and his interviewer was Katy Tur who claimed that she wanted to throw up when Donald Trump won the election in 2016. Unfortunately for Raskin, even Tur couldn't allow Raskin's outrageous claim about not wanting to impeach Trump to go by without challenge. It happened right after Raskin talked about setting up a commission to determine if a president is fit for office. Hey, it could be any president, not necessarily Trump. Or so Raskin ridiculously claimed followed up by...

    A new year invites examination, a moment to compare the present to the past to discover patterns that forecast the future. In 2018, certain patterns are already emerging, with time coordinates leading back two decades.In 1998, the “information superhighway” advanced communication, magazines like George filled bookstore shelves, the economic boom seemed boundless, and the country enjoyed a deceptive post-Cold War peace. It was also the year dial-up speeds accelerated news digestion, the media raged into a dervish frenzy over a presidential scandal, and a political party miscalculated its electoral destiny.It’s difficult to project certainty about the future, but one...

    Talk about your paranoid fantasies . . . Republican pollster and columnist Kristen Soltis Anderson has floated a scenario in which President Trump would question the validity of “elections, period” if Democrats win the Congress in 2018 and are seen moving toward impeachment. Appearing on today’s Morning Joe, Soltis Anderson spun what she described as a “really scary situation”: "If President Trump looks like he is potentially at risk of having a Democratic Congress that may begin to want to pursue impeachment proceedings, do you really then begin to see this questioning of the validity of elections period?” Get the...

    The Democratic Party, on Wednesday, voted overwhelmingly for Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) to replace resigned Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) on the House Judiciary Committee. Nadler, a constitutional law expert, won the spot over Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), an architect of immigration legislation, by secret ballot with 118 to 72 votes. The Washington Post noted on Thursday that the decision to fill their top spot on the committee demonstrates the Democratic Party’s willingness “[t]o ready themselves for a battle with Trump that could end with impeachment proceedings.” Should the Democrats regain control of the House during next year’s mid-term elections, they...

    Wednesday on MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) said it was “premature” to discuss impeaching President Donald Trump because he has not “seen the sorts of evidence that would justify it at this point.” Coons said, “I’m not calling for the president’s impeachment at this point because I don’t think we’ve seen the sorts of evidence that would justify it at this point. I’m a political realist. It’s a Republican-controlled House and Senate. Impeachment won’t move forward unless there is something that shocks the conscience of the average American and persuades a majority of Republicans this president committed high...
  • THIS DAY IN HISTORY - Dec. 19, 1998 - President Clinton Impeached

    After nearly 14 hours of debate, the House of Representatives approves two articles of impeachment against President Bill Clinton, charging him with lying under oath to a federal grand jury and obstructing justice. Clinton, the second president in American history to be impeached, vowed to finish his term. In November 1995, Clinton began an affair with Monica Lewinsky, a 21-year-old unpaid intern. Over the course of a year and a half, the president and Lewinsky had nearly a dozen sexual encounters in the White House. In April 1996, Lewinsky was transferred to the Pentagon. That summer, she first confided in...
