  • Collins: Schiff wants interviews kept secret because Dems ‘can’t win this in the public eye’

    House committees are expected to continue their series of closed-door transcribed interviews as part of their impeachment-related investigation of President Trump this week, and Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga. claims the secrecy is due to the Democratic majority not wanting the public to know that the testimony does not support their narrative. Earlier this month, former U.S. Special Envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker, Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson and former U.S. envoy to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch went before Democrat-led committees to face questions about President Trump and whether he pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky into helping investigate Joe and Hunter...

    Believing Adam Schiff’s lies and calling for an “impeachment inquiry” has to be one of the worst blunders of Speaker Pelosi’s career. The whistleblower tale has crumbled and the backup witnesses the Democrats are relying on only confirm the Deep State bureaucrats and Democrats believe that they, not the elected president, have a lock on executive powers. In fact, the ploy boomeranged and the spotlight is now on the Democrats’ White Hope, Joe Biden. Despite the media downplaying Biden’s actions, there is more to come of his and his party’s corruption. Whistleblower Won’t Testify The leaker, incorrectly tagged a “whistleblower,”...

    Some House Democrats are privately calling on Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to hold a vote to formalize the impeachment inquiry to undermine Republican criticism that the process is illegitimate, Politico reported this week. So far, Pelosi has refused to schedule a vote, arguing that the Constitution and House rules do not require the lawmakers to do so. Meanwhile, the White House and its Republican congressional allies contend that such a vote is necessary to legitimize the inquiry per the recognized standards of previous impeachment efforts. Politico reported: Some Democratic lawmakers and aides have begun to say privately — and, to...

    On Sunday’s broadcast of ABC’s “This Week,” Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT), a member of the House Intelligence Committee, said “all transcripts” from the House’s impeachment inquiry will be made public. Jon Karl asked, “Congressman, why is this all happening behind closed doors? Why the secrecy? This is not a classified deposition. Why not do it out in the open?” Himes said, “First of all, all transcripts will be scrubbed for classified information and made available for the American public to see. There’s two reasons why these depositions are happening behind closed doors. One reason is when you’re talking to ambassadors...

    Trump said "this crooked" Schiff "fraudulently mischaracterized" his July 25 Ukraine phone call to congratulate the new president "to make it sound absolutely horrible." "I'm going to go after him," Trump said. "They say, 'sir, he has immunity, because he said it in Congress he has immunity.' I don't care about immunity. He can't have immunity. He made up a phone call." Trump added his "totally congenial" phone call was twisted by a "totally terrible fraudulent thing" as Schiff was "talking to the American public, lying and cheating" and now "he has to pay a big price." Trump: Even if...

    On Sept. 24, 2019, Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the official impeachment inquiry that would be led by the Intelligence Committee and Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.).  At first, this was a curious decision to objective persons, since the Judiciary Committee has the authority over this type of procedure.  At the time, Pelosi indicated a threat by President Donald Trump to our national security during the July 25 conversation between him and President Zelensky of Ukraine.  She did this without the benefit of the transcript, but she doubtless already knew much of the CIA "whistleblower's" complaint.  Further, the Ukrainian president disputes her version. But this...

    Resolution To Expel Nancy Pelosi from Congress Introduced Pursuant to Article 1, Section 5 of the US Constitution 3 MINUTEREAD If articles of impeachment are introduced against President Donald Trump in the House of Representatives, you can bet it’ll end up being a complex document. After all, it would have to encompass everything the Democrats are trying to pin on Trump — and, given the number of witch hunts the Democrats have engaged in regarding the current president, this won’t be a short airing of grievances. If brevity works in your favor in these matters, perhaps GOP Rep. Ralph Abraham...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — It's impeachment because House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says it is. That's the legal position of House Democrats, and they are sticking with it, for now, even as President Donald Trump decries impeachment as "illegitimate" without a formal House vote to start it. Trump has said he won't cooperate with the impeachment investigation, which is looking into his dealings with Ukraine, unless there is a vote and Republicans are treated more fairly. For the Democrats, there are legal, strategic and political reasons to stay the course. THE LEGAL RATIONALE Under the law, Democrats say they have no obligation...

    Anything worth doing is worth doing right, or so Hunter S. Thompson would say. Clearly Nancy Pelosi is not a fan of the late gonzo journalist. If she were to adopt that simple belief, perhaps the country could move on from the most recent and ridiculous manufactured impeachment crisis. If Nancy Pelosi were interested in doing things the right way, she would hold a vote on the House floor to open an impeachment inquiry. A vote that was held for the Clinton impeachment inquiry, a vote that was held for the Nixon impeachment inquiry, but a vote that Pelosi refuses...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Wednesday said he will send a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) indicating that Senate Republicans will not impeach President Trump over a phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, saying “she can stop now.” Speaking to Fox News, Graham, who is the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said he will ask other Senate Republicans to sign a letter to Pelosi that said they “do not believe the transcript of the phone call between the president and Ukraine is an impeachable offense.” “They’re about to destroy the nation for no good reason,” Graham...

    The latest standoff between House Democrats and the Trump administration over the testimony of State Department officials has the White House questioning in a new letter sent Tuesday why the House is not voting to authorize a formal impeachment inquiry. The White House and its Republican congressional allies have argued that such a vote is necessary, and President Donald Trump's lawyers told House Democrats in the letter that the President and his administration won't cooperate in the ongoing impeachment inquiry, arguing the proceedings amount to an illegitimate effort to overturn the 2016 election results. The lengthy letter all but dares...

    The White House's blanket refusal to cooperate with Democrats' inquiry will test Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her caucus in the days ahead. President Donald Trump has set his strategy for the impeachment fight with House Democrats — minimum cooperation, maximum confrontation. Whether Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats have learned how to counter him is the big question. Trump dramatically upped the political ante on Tuesday, with White House Counsel Pat Cipollone blasting the Democrasts’ impeachment inquiry as “illegal” and “dangerous,” and declaring the administration won’t cooperate with a probe it considers constitutionally improper. Democrats now have to work quickly...

    Full title: Spakovsky & Jipping: Pelosi hasn't really started the impeachment process – She needs to do it or give upDoes an impeachment inquiry require a vote of the full House of Representatives? President Trump and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., maintain that it does. Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., claims that it doesn’t. Pelosi is correct that the Constitution doesn’t explicitly require it. It simply gives the House the “sole Power of Impeachment.” But the gravity of even considering impeachment, fundamental principles of fair and impartial justice, and preserving our republican form of government, do require it. Pelosi alone...

    Chairman Adam Schiff, House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence; Chairman Elijah E. Cummings, Committee on White House Oversight; Chairman Eliot L. Engel, House Committee on Foreign Affairs, continue sending carefully worded letters under the guise of ‘subpoenas’ today. [Main Link Here]However, you’ll notice in these latest versions they are modifying: (#1) now they actually include attachments that would be “subpoenas”; yet they shift language to ‘subpoena schedules’. Why? Because (#2) the letters and subpoenas omit any penalty for non-compliance. They cannot assign a penalty because the letters do not carry judicial authority.Obviously Lawfare, instructing Pelosi’s group, realizes the larger...

    On Fox Nation’s “Deep Dive,” Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett warned that Democrats are pursuing an impeachment process that the authors of the U.S. Constitution would have opposed. As evidence, Jarrett pointed to the man that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi D-Calif., has empowered to lead the inquiry. “Nancy Pelosi knows this,” said Jarrett. “In January of this year, she said we cannot impeach for political reasons and now she is doing precisely that. And the person that she has handled the gavel to, Adam Schiff, has a long and distinguished record of not just hatred of President Trump but...
