  • Adam Schiff’s Attack on the Free Press

    12/07/2019 3:21:12 AM PST · by a little elbow grease · 18 replies ^ | 12/6/19 | David Harsanyi
    Where are all the self-styled champions of the free press now that Adam Schiff has used the surveillance powers of the state to smear not only his political rivals but a journalist? With the release of the House Intelligence Committee’s impeachment report Tuesday came the revelation that Giuliani and his Ukrainian affiliate Lev Parnas, whose metadata Schiff apparently subpoenaed, had exchanged calls with former The Hill columnist John Solomon, ranking Intelligence Republican Devin Nunes, and attorney Jay Sekulow. Even if we allow that the California congressman had genuine national-security concerns when he subpoenaed metadata from AT&T so he could snoop...

    New call logs purported to show Giuliani ringing a number identified as the White House Office of Management and Budget. They also show Rep. Devin Nunes was in touch with both Rudy Giuliani and his indicted associate Lev Parnas in April 2019. House Intelligence Committee Democrats included information in their 300-page report. Suggested a 13-minute call between Giuliani and OMB; records show multiple calls from Giuliani to the White House on key dates in April and August. Trump administration says no one at OMB spoke to Giuliani. New York Times reports the number associated with the calls is a generic...

    Oh my. Adam Schiff gave an interview to The New Yorker in which he had some really nasty things to say about Donald Trump.  One stands out in particular: “The President doesn’t give a s**t about what’s good for our country, what’s good for Ukraine. It’s all about what’s in it for him personally and for his reëlection campaign.” Doesn't care about what's good for our country? Seriously? The data says otherwise.

    But the phone calls, a presidential spokesperson told RealClearPolitics, were not coming from inside the Office of Management and Budget: “No one from OMB has talked to Giuliani.” The House Intelligence Committee says otherwise. In a voluminous report, the Democrat-led committee that took the lead in impeachment alleged in graphic detail how Giuliani worked with the administration to freeze $391 million in foreign aid to Ukraine to pressure the government of that country into publicly committing to opening an investigation into Joe Biden’s family. The report details phone calls and texts dating from last spring and summer, including a nearly...

    Jonathan Turley, the sole Republican witness during the House Judiciary Committee's first public impeachment hearing Wednesday, said he was "inundated with threatening messages" after his testimony, which argued that Democrats do not have enough evidence to support articles of impeachment against President Trump. "Before I finished my testimony, my home and office were inundated with threatening messages and demands that I be fired from George Washington University for arguing that, while a case for impeachment can be made, it has not been made on this record," Turley wrote in an op-ed for The Hill on Thursday. The law professor at...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | December 5, 2019
    ... Adam Schiff, the leading House impeachment advocate, has been floating a capacious definition of bribery that bears no relation to current law. “Well, bribery, first of all, as the Founders understood bribery, it was not as we understand it in law today. It was much broader,” he told NPR. “It connoted the breach of the public trust in a way where you’re offering official acts for some personal or political reason, not in the nation’s interest.” ... Let’s assume, for the sake of argument, that Mr. Schiff’s bribery definition is correct and should be the impeachment standard. Why then...
  • Why is Adam Schiff sniffing around the phone records of reporters and congressmen?

    12/05/2019 8:00:18 PM PST · by Kevin in California · 64 replies
    Adam Schiff owes the public some answers. The House Intelligence Committee chairman should explain why and under what authority he obtained and then publicized phone records that included calls involving the president's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, ranking Intelligence Committee Republican Devin Nunes, journalist John Solomon, and others. It is far from clear when, or even whether, House subpoena powers extend so far without a court-ordered search warrant. The California Democrat has used the records to hint at attempts by the Trump team and by Nunes, Schiff’s bitter rival, to coordinate a pressure campaign against Ukraine for Trump’s personal benefit. Solomon,...

    Adam Schiff is back in the news in a big way. He’s about as funny as a rubber crutch, but it can’t be wrong to call a timeout to laugh at him. Tom Shillue has mastered the bizarreries of Schiff’s deportment in a manner that brings insight to impersonation. The compilation of Shillue clips below made me laugh out loud. It is the second of two such compilations on YouTube.

    House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) investigated Ranking Member Devin Nunes (D-CA) as part of his impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, the committee report revealed on Tuesday. The revelation that Schiff had obtained telephone records related to Nunes was the only new revelation in the report, which otherwise re-hashed Democrats’ arguments in favor of impeaching Trump for allegedly asking Ukraine to interfere in the 2020 election. In a press conference Tuesday afternoon, Schiff declined to say when the committee had obtained the records, but given the Democrats’ repeated questions during the inquiry about administration officials who had...

    Rep. Jerrold Nadler was hoping for redemption yesterday, having earlier been so inept that Nancy Pelosi gave the Adam Schiff’s House Intelligence Committee the opportunity to hold “impeachment inquiry” hearings, even though Nadler’s Judiciary Committee would have the responsibility of drawing up articles of impeachment. But yesterday’s hearing continued excavating the hole that the Democrats’ collective Trump Derangement Syndrome has dug for themselves. Nadler’s first mistake was to start with law professors lecturing us on their hatred .. for Donald Trump. ... they displayed their own contempt, epitomized by Stanford Professor Pamela Karlan’s .. nonsensical but nasty attack on President...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | December 4, 2019
    Democrats are trying to convince Americans that President Trump should be ousted for trying to “dig up dirt” on a rival. They’d have more credibility if they didn’t abuse their surveillance powers for drive-by smears of Republicans and a free press. Adam Schiff’s 300-page House Intelligence impeachment report doesn’t include much new about Mr. Trump’s Ukrainian interventions. But it does disclose details of telephone calls between ranking Intelligence Republican Devin Nunes, Trump attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Jay Sekulow, reporter John Solomon, former Giuliani associate Lev Parnas, the White House, and others. The details are “metadata” about the numbers and length...

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff spied on the top Republican on his panel by obtaining his phone records and publishing them in an impeachment report, Minority Whip Steve Scalise said Wednesday. “It raises a lot of serious questions,” the Louisiana Republican said. “I want to know all the people Adam Schiff is spying on,” Scalise told the Washington Examiner. “Are there other members of Congress that he is spying on, and what justification does he have? He needs to be held accountable and explain what he’s doing, going after journalists, going after members of Congress, instead of doing his...

    Jonathan Turley, a law professor at George Washington University and the sole Republican witness at Wednesday's impeachment hearing, cautioned against impeaching President Trump for obstruction and said that Democrats would be abusing their power by not allowing the courts to rule on subpoenas. "Recently there are some rulings against President Trump, including a ruling involving Don McGahn. ... That's an example of what can happen if you actually subpoena witnesses and go to court. Then you have an obstruction case because a court issues an order. And unless they stay that order by a higher court, you have obstruction. But...

So, like the mental-midget fake wrestler he is, this week he’ll tag his fat-ass buddy Jerry-the-Hut to take over and trot out another squad of “I don’t like Trump, so he must have done something wrong” whineyasses to invent new “bombshells” to scuttle what has become a very effective and patriotic PotUS.

    It is tempting to describe Wednesday’s impeachment hearing before the House Judiciary Committee as a farce. But it was worse than that. It made a travesty of fairness. With Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y. at the helm of the Judiciary Committee, there was no real chance that President Trump would be treated equitably. After all, Nadler’s confederate and chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., had already obliterated any semblance of due process in impeachment hearings before his committee. The Schiff hearings were a lollapalooza of hearsay, opinion and grotesque speculation. So there was no reason to believe...

    Breitbart ^ | 12/03/19 | JOEL B. POLLAK
    House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) told National Public Radio (NPR) on Tuesday that President Donald Trump was guilty of “bribery,” though his committee’s own report largely ignored that claim. Democrats pushed the 300-page report through the committee on a party-line vote Tuesday evening, just hours after its release. Republicans were allowed to read the Democrats’ report the night before, but could only read it in the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, and could only do so in the presence of a Democrat “minder” who would ensure Republicans would not leak...
