    While President Trump has spent his time comforting America during the tragedy of Hurricane Harvey and the coming of “nuclear hurricane” Irma, a Texas Democrat revealed in an interview with MSNBC that Congress is considering a Trump impeachment. http://www.newsweek.com/castro-trump-comey-fired-russia-impeachment-660174?utm_source=yahoo&utm_medium=yahoo_news&utm_campaign=rss-related&utm_content=/rss/yahoous/news I am stunned. The reason is even more stunning than the “impeachment” talk. A NEW YORK TIMES report claimed special counsel Robert Mueller had uncovered a draft of a letter Trump and adviser Stephen Miller wrote before terminating Comey in May. I will go to the article before I reveal the valid reason I believe could have led to the firing...

    The Congressional Black Caucus will hold a meeting next week to discuss whether to call for the impeachment of President Donald Trump. Following Trump’s response to deadly violence at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, last month, the CBC chairman, Representative Cedric Richmond of Louisiana, said the 49-member caucus would have a discussion on Trump’s possible impeachment when Congress reconvened after the August recess. Those talks will take place next Wednesday, a CBC staffer confirmed to Newsweek on Thursday. While it was initially anticipated that the discussions would happen at this week’s meeting, relief efforts following Hurricane Harvey and...

    (CNN) — Hillary Clinton casts Bernie Sanders as an unrealistic over-promiser in her new book, according to excerpts posted by a group of Clinton supporters. She said that his attacks against her during the primary caused "lasting damage" and paved the way for "(Donald) Trump's 'Crooked Hillary' campaign." Clinton, in a book that will be released September 12 entitled "What Happened," said Sanders "had to resort to innuendo and impugning my character" because the two Democrats "agreed on so much." The excerpts represent a small number of the roughly 500-page book in which Clinton reflects on her stunning loss to...

    Saturday in Durham, NC at the 82nd founders’ anniversary celebration of the Durham Committee on the Affairs of Black People, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said after President Donald Trump was they impeached, they would “go after” Vice President Mike Pence next. Waters said, “Who is Donald Trump? Who does he think he is? Why does he think he is going to get away with what he is doing? There are those who may be afraid of him but as the young folks say, I ain’t scared, not one bit, not one bit and neither should you be.” She continued, “Then...
  • Tough Sell on the Obstruction of Justice Case Against Trump (Even Earl ain't buying it)

    The Huffington Post ^ | September 3, 2017 | Earl Ofari Hutchinson
    Special counsel Robert Mueller is looking hard at documents on Trump’s firing of former FBI Director James Comey. This touched off endless chatter that Mueller is zeroing in on trying to make a case against Trump for obstruction of justice. That’s a potentially impeachable offense. But it’s a tough sell. The federal statute that governs what is and isn’t an obstruction of justice offense is straightforward. It ticks off the actions required, “threats,” “corrupts,” “impedes,” or “influences,” any action that comes under the explicit proper purview of a government department or Congress. There’s more. It would have to be shown...

    Televangelist Jim Bakker has warned that Christians would begin a second civil war if President Trump were ever impeached. “I predict if it happens there will be a Civil War in the US,” he said on the Jim Bakker Show in May, in a segment highlighted by Right Wing Watch that recently began making the rounds once again. “The Christians will finally come out of the shadows, because we’re going to be shut up permanently if we’re not careful, and God says that faith without works is death, we have to do things.” The televangelist’s proclamation is one of many...

    SAN FRANCISCO — U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein was booed by some constituents Tuesday night when she said President Donald Trump could be a good president if he changed his approach to the job and brought the nation together. “I just hope he has the ability to learn and change — and if he can he can be a good president,” she said at a Commonwealth Club forum at the historic Herbst Theater, surprising San Franciscans used to hearing their politicians decry Trump. “Oh, come on!” a few people shouted. “No, no!” screamed others. While Feinstein was welcomed with a standing...

    The Week ^ | August 25, 2017 | Damon Linker
    For several months following the extraordinary outcome of last year's presidential election, much of the country found itself stumbling through a severe case of politically inspired post-traumatic stress disorder. Many anti-Trump conservatives, liberals, progressives, and those further to the left were at first stunned and then consumed by a mixture of outrage and revulsion that showed itself in the enormous protests that followed President Trump's inauguration. It also fueled spasms of blame-casting, with a rotating cast of characters coming in for abuse: Russian President Vladimir Putin, then-FBI Director James Comey, the press (for unfairly focusing undue attention on Hillary Clinton's...

    President Trump's former campaign adviser and close personal friend Roger Stone told TMZ on Thursday that an effort to impeach Trump would result in a literal "civil war." "Try to impeach him. Just try it. You will have a spasm of violence in this country, an insurrection, like you have never seen before," Stone said. "Both sides are heavily armed, my friend." Stone additionally claimed "any politician who votes" to impeach Trump "would be endangering their own life." "There will be violence on both sides," Stone said. "Let me make this clear: I'm not advocating violence. I am predicting it."

    The Congressional Black Caucus, a formidable bloc of lawmakers with a big say in the fate of President Donald Trump and his legislation, Monday sent him a terse, clear message: We don't think you understand us at all. The caucus' chairman Monday urged cancellation of next month's highly anticipated meeting between White House officials and leaders of the nation's historically black colleges. And he plans to have the 49-member caucus meet when Congress returns in two weeks to discuss whether to back Democratic-led efforts to impeach Trump. Rep. Cedric Richmond, D-La., the caucus chairman, said the president's remarks after the...

    Does Joe Scarborough of MSNBC watch rival CNN? The question arises because this morning, one wonders whether Joe had tuned into the CNN segment we blogged Said Scarborough on today's Morning Joe: "this weekend, there seemed to be a turn where a lot of people . . . have started to talk about impeachment and have started to talk about okay, maybe he's going to resign now, and have started to talk about like that Donald Trump is going to leave town." But Scarborough wasn't buying: "he's not going anywhere, Mark [Halperin], is he?" Scarborough ended the discussion by repeating...

    President Donald Trump has stepped up his attacks on Republican senators, an approach he may regret if he is someday impeached and the Senate has to weigh charges against him stemming from an investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election. More than half of the 11 Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee, which would be central to any proceeding to remove Trump from office, have tangled with the Republican president, including on Thursday when he fired off early-morning tweets.

    Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tennessee, announced Thursday that he plans to introduce articles of impeachment against President Trump. Cohen cited potential obstruction of justice and violations of the Constitution's Foreign Emoluments Clause as the reasons for impeachment while also addressing his own strong moral opposition to the president's words and actions relating to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend.

    Articles Of Impeachment Brought For Third Time Against Republican Donald Trump Polls have now shown a majority of Americans thought the response to the Charlottesville domestic terror attack by Republican Donald Trump was incredibly weak. Despite that reality, Trump has now tripled down on his affinity for the traitorous past of the Confederacy with another early morning Tweet storm in support of the statues representing that ugly history. Now, it appears one Democrat has had enough of the dog whistles and will introduce articles of impeachment against Trump over his continued olive branches to white supremacists. Democrat Steve Cohen of...

    At some point in 2019 (if not sooner) a Republican Senator may walk into the Oval Office and say to President Trump: “Mr. President, we don’t have the votes,” at which point the Trump presidency will end in a resignation or a conviction in the Senate. This scenario actually occurred forty-three years ago this summer when Republican Senator Barry Goldwater walked into the Oval Office and told Republican President Richard Nixon that they didn’t have the votes in the Senate to save his presidency.

    Republicans do not have to wake up each morning afraid of what the president has tweeted. They do not have to fret that the special counsel will find damning evidence of collusion with Russia, obstruction of justice or other criminal or impeachable behavior. They do not have to worry that they'll accomplish absolutely nothing before facing the voters in 2018. They do not have to dread that a presidential temper tantrum will get us into a war, or force a humiliating retreat. They need not fear that the president of their own party will attack them, or even back a...

    Liberal activists resisting the presidency of Donald Trump say they’d rather defeat him and other Republicans at the ballot box than see Trump brought down in other ways. Those gathering for the annual Netroots Nation confab this weekend in Georgia say obsessing over subpoenas and clamoring for impeachment distracts from larger policy debates. They believe it also takes away from congressional midterm elections whose outcomes will last beyond Trump. …

    Chafing at President Trump's very public display of frustration with the failure of the Senate to pass health insurance reform, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ken) blamed "excessive expectations." "Frankly, the President is out of his depth on this," McConnell maintained. "He comes from a business milieu where the emphasis is on action and results. In government the emphasis is on process." The Majority Leader offered to "explain the process in terms that even Mr. Trump can understand. In the Senate we have agreements that both Parties abide by. All the repeals of Obamacare that we passed were guaranteed to be...

    Seventeen years ago, as a Republican-controlled Senate concluded its impeachment trial of President Bill Clinton, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., expressed her concerns about how future generations would perceive what had happened. Feinstein -- along with every other Senate Democrat and five Republicans -- voted on Feb. 12, 1999 that Clinton was "not guilty" of either of the two Articles of Impeachment the House brought against him. "Clinton acquitted but tarnished forever by impeachment," said an Associated Press headline the next day. "[T]he Senate, with Democrats solidly in his camp, acquitted him on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice,"...
