    The long-awaited showdown between the Justice Department and Congress is finally here. It started late Friday afternoon. While the rest of the country was parsing the just-released report on the FBI from the Justice Department’s inspector general, senior congressional leaders and selected committee chairmen quietly met with FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein at a secure location in the basement of the Capitol. At issue was Justice and FBI’s continuing defiance of congressional subpoenas. At the top of this list is the demand from the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence for documents about why and...
  • Former Watergate Prosecutor: “Mueller Has Good Obstruction Case” [semi-satire]

    Former Assistant Watergate special prosecutor Jill Wine-Banks contends that “Trump’s repeated public assertions of innocence, by themselves, constitute a clear intent to obstruct the investigation being carried out by Special Prosecutor Mueller. When you add his characterization of the investigation as a ‘witch hunt’ I think we have a ‘slam dunk’ case of attempted intimidation and Mueller should proceed to an indictment of the President without even interviewing him.” Wine-Banks also cited Trump’s tweets lamenting his appointment of Jeff Session as Attorney General as “further evidence of improper intervention in the process aimed at removing him from office. Sessions has...

    At some point, one starts to feel sorry for House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. After all, being asked over and over again about the same fringe issue has got to be a bit of a soul-crushing experience for someone who’s supposedly focused on winning back the House. On Wednesday, during a town hall event hosted by CNN, the California congresswoman was asked again to comment on her Democratic colleagues’ efforts to impeach President Trump. “The issue of impeachment keeps coming out of the mouths of Democrats,” said CNN’s Chris Cuomo. “And a recent poll shows that more than...

    Left-wing activist Tom Steyer is blasting House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and top Democrats for not supporting impeachment, claiming that Democrats are complicit in “normalizing” President Donald Trump. He even compared his impeachment movement to the 1960s civil rights movement. “The Founders gave us impeachment to answer a reckless, lawless, and dangerous president and every day that his behavior is accepted, every day that you don’t oppose it, it becomes enshrined as the way things are done. You have normalized this presidency, you have normalized his behavior,” Steyer said in a Tuesday Politico interview. “And then at the end...

    Liberals will be shocked to hear this. Yes, I finally agree. You’ve won over Wayne Root with evidence and common sense. It’s time to impeach the president. However, it’s not President Trump I’m talking about. It’s time to impeach former President Barack Obama. And of course, prosecute him too. Many are starting to come to this conclusion. Tom Fitton, the legal genius behind Judicial Watch (the number one government watchdog in America), has come to the same conclusion. Fitton said this week that amidst a climate of impeachment fervor, the actual evidence points to Obama’s actions warranting impeachment far more...

    Have you noticed how frustrated much of the liberal media has become over the lack of any evidence of Trump-Russia collusion? Well, Thursday's Rolling Stone devoted a long article by Tessa Stuart giving one excuse after another why no such collusion has been discovered, How the House Intelligence Committee Collapsed on Adam Schiff.The subtitle is "The inside story of the California Democrat's failed crusade to investigate Donald Trump." However the big story here is contained in the very first paragraph in which it is revealed that Chris Matthews, obviously frustrated by Adam Schiff's appearances on Hardball in which nothing new...

    Psst! Hey Jon Meacham! Haven't you gotten the liberal message that you are not supposed to mention impeachment (for now) in case the Democrats win back the House this November? Perhaps historian and failed Newsweek editor Meacham is so eager for that impeachment that he just couldn't hold back on Monday's Morning Joe. They were discussing the horror of  President Donald Trump wanting the DOJ to investigate intelligence agencies spying on his 2016 presidential campaign which led to Meacham eagerly invoking the I-word that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer prefer to not be mentioned (for now).  If you earn a...

    The Salt Lake Tribune ^ | May 7, 2018 | Jennifer Rubin, The Washington Post
    Democratic leaders are right to caution their members and candidates against talking up impeachment. There is the obvious political consideration that impeachment is disfavored, at least now, by many voters, especially those in red states where Democrats need to hang on to precious Senate seats. But there is something more important, both for the party fighting against the erosion of democratic norms and for the country: We cannot normalize impeachment. Rep. Adam Schiff of California, ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, writes that “it is clear that if President (Donald) Trump participated in a conspiracy to defraud the United...

    **SNIP** Pelosi, in an interview with The Dallas Morning News, had said she wishes Democrats like Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, would not make impeaching Trump a rallying cry. "We have elections," she said. "Go vote if it's a policy thing and a behavior thing. I don't know if you can get impeached for being a jerk, but if we did, this guy would be long gone. But that's not unifying." But Green, who has spearheaded the push to impeach Trump, criticized Pelosi, saying that reducing Trump to a jerk “trivializes the impact of his bigoted policies on Jews, Latinos, African-Americans,...

    California Rep. Maxine Waters (D) said Wednesday that the impeachment of President Trump is the "only option" for Democrats in the wake of his decision to exit the Iran nuclear agreement. In a tweet, Waters says Trump "thinks he knows better" than U.S. allies France, Germany, and the United Kingdom, which issued a joint statement this week condemning Trump's decision to abandon the agreement. "Trump, further isolating the United States, thinks he knows better than our negotiators and all of our global allies who agreed to the Iran deal," Waters tweeted. "How long do we have to suffer his gigantic...

    “I like you. You and me, we’re going to be best friends.” It is early January, and Eric Schneiderman is sitting in his 25th-floor office above Lower Manhattan, doing his best Donald Trump impression, puckering his lips into a duck face, scrunching up his nose and lowering his voice into something that resembles the president’s outer-borough growl. Schneiderman is recalling his meeting with Trump in 2010. Back then, Schneiderman was running for attorney general of New York, and Trump was still in his pre-birther, reality TV host phase. Trump had donated money to one of Schneiderman’s opponents in the Democratic...
  • Memo to Trump: Defy Mueller

    Charges against Trump are to be brought, this is the arena, this is the forum, where the battle should be fought and the fate and future of the Trump presidency decided. The goal of Mueller's prosecutors is to take down Trump on the cheap. If they can get him behind closed doors and make him respond in detail to questions -- to which they already know the answers -- any misstep by Trump could be converted into a perjury charge. Trump has to score 100 on a test to which Mueller's team has all the answers in advance while...

    In June 1995, Monica Lewinsky’s move to Washington, D.C., was unremarkable. She was a 21-year-old recent college grad with an unpaid internship in the office of President Bill Clinton’s Chief of Staff Leon Panetta, landed with the help of a family connection. But, as the nation later learned, things happened quickly from that point, as it was that year that she began a relationship with the President that would last about two years and lead to an epoch-shaping scandal. The relationship between Lewinsky and President Clinton came to light 20 years ago, and the fallout would dominate 1998’s news. And...

    ALEXANDRIA, Va. (Reuters) - A federal judge on Friday sharply criticized Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s criminal case in Virginia against President Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, and openly questioned whether Mueller exceeded his prosecutorial powers by bringing it. “I don’t see what relationship this indictment has with anything the special counsel is authorized to investigate,” U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis in the Eastern District of Virginia said. At tense hearing at the federal courthouse in Alexandria, Virginia, the judge said Mueller should not have “unfettered power” in his Russia probe and that the charges against Manafort did not arise...

    A federal judge on Friday harshly rebuked Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team during a hearing for ex-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort – suggesting they lied about the scope of the investigation, are seeking “unfettered power” and are more interested in bringing down the president. "You don't really care about Mr. Manafort,” U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III told Mueller’s team. “You really care about what information Mr. Manafort can give you to lead you to Mr. Trump and an impeachment, or whatever."

A reader sent us a link to this article, which has more: The mainstream U.S. media outlets have failed to report a major terrorist plot against the U.S. - because it would tend to support President Bush's use of NSA domestic surveillance, according to media watchdog groups.

    President Trump wants to step up efforts to protect Republican control of the House in hopes of avoiding an impeachment debate and congressional investigations if Democrats seize the chamber, according to GOP sources. “It is super important to the White House and really the whole White House is very focused on it,” said a source familiar with strategy talks about protecting the House majority. “The president is expected to dial up efforts in this regard during and after the August recess,” the source added.

    A new Quinnipiac poll shows that if democrats win control of the House of Representatives in the 2018 midterm elections, more than 70 percent of their supporters want to begin impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump. The poll outlines precisely what is at stake in the midterm contests and it verifies what concerned GOP strategists have been saying for months: 2018 is a referendum on impeachment. Although the overall percentage of American voters who favor impeachment has actually declined seven percent since January, the survey underscores the left’s intensity — some might even say obsession — with the subject of...

    The intense fear and loathing that permeates news coverage of President Donald Trump is being multiplied on television dramas. Impeachment scenarios and 25th Amendment removal strategies are rolling around in the brains of scriptwriters. Barbara Hall, the creator of the pro-Hillary Clinton CBS show "Madam Secretary," claimed "We just take things that are already in the atmosphere, and if we find them interesting in terms of a civics lesson, we show you what it would look like. We're not campaigning for it. We're not politicizing it, really. We're just saying, 'Here's what the process looks like.'" Agenda? What agenda? It's...
