    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) teed off against the House impeachment inquiry on Tuesday, marking his first comments since Congress returned from its two-week break. "House Democrats are finally indulging in their impeachment obsession. Full steam ahead," McConnell said during a speech from the Senate floor, adding that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) had "crumbled" to the "left-wing impeachment caucus." "I don't think many of us were expecting to witness a clinic in terms of fairness or due process. But even by their own partisan standards, House Democrats have already found new ways to lower the bar," McConnell added.

    Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she will make public Tuesday evening her party's plans on whether the House will take a formal vote to authorize the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump that she announced last month. When asked at a news conference Tuesday if she will hold a full House floor vote on authorizing the inquiry -- as Republicans have called on her to do -- Pelosi told reporters, "I'll be talking about that later today after I meet with my colleagues."

    The Hill ^ | October 15, 2019 | Scott Wong, Mike Lillis
    Speaker Nancy Pelosi continued to stand firm Tuesday, insisting she will not stage a vote on the House floor to officially launch an impeachment inquiry into President Trump. Trump and his Republican allies have been pressuring Pelosi to hold a formal vote to begin the investigation — a move they believe would grant them more power and influence in the process, including the ability to call and subpoena their own witnesses. Last month, Pelosi formally launched an impeachment inquiry into Trump after months of resisting calls from her caucus to do so, but she has faced pressure to hold an...

    Romney holds himself out as a voice of conscience, "deeply concerned" about Trump's Ukraine call. Ok, fine. What about Schiff's secretive hearings? What happened to the public's right to know? Has anyone heard Romney demand that the hearings be opened up? Has anyone heard him take a stand for for transparency, open government and due process? Or is Romney's tender conscience act just a put-on?

    House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) said House Intel Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) wants to impeach President Donald Trump behind closed doors in an interview Monday with FOX Business Network's Maria Bartiromo on 'Mornings With Maria.' "Well, this is part of Adam Schiff's -- it's like a kangaroo court he set up, but they've got this shroud of secrecy, where they want to drip out things that they want to allude to, they make false accusations to try to," Scalise said. "And so, why Adam Schiff continues to hide in secret the Volker testimony, he was already starting to...
  • Rep. Angie Craig tells town hall she wants to 'keep an open mind' during impeachment inquiry

    EAGAN, Minn. (FOX 9) - Minnesota Rep. Angie Craig has become a target of President Trump and his administration after flipping a GOP seat last year. After Minneapolis hosted the President and Vice President in Minneapolis last week, and the Vice President hosted an event in her district, Craig used a town hall meeting to respond. Back on Sept. 24, Craig joined other House Democrats in calling on Congress to open an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump. Monday night, however, she told the room that the inquiry is only a small percent of what she is focusing on when...

    President Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, told Fox News he will not comply with a congressional subpoena to turn over all documents related to the phone call between Trump and Ukraine central to impeachment hearings against the president, as the deadline for cooperating expires Tuesday. Giuliani's attorney, Jon Sale, who he retained to represent him in matters relating to impeachment said his client would not abide by the subpoena "because this appears to be an unconstitutional, baseless, and illegitimate, "impeachment inquiry,"" according to a letter sent to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Tuesday. "The subpoena is overbroad, unduly...

    Officials in Ukraine reportedly opened an investigation into an energy company that employed former Vice President Joe Biden’s son long before President Donald Trump’s July 25 nothing-burger of a telephone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that spurred the Democrats’ haphazard, increasingly Kafkaesque impeachment inquiry. The time element of the revelation, devastating as it is to the 2016-election-nullification push disguised as an impeachment process, has been largely ignored by the mainstream media which is overly preoccupied –as usual— attacking President Trump. The information came last week from investigative reporter John Solomon, who recently was hired as a Fox News...

    Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., on Sunday said the impeachment of President Trump "shouldn't take very long" because she claimed he's already confessed that he pressured Ukrainian leaders to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, a 2020 presidential rival. While taking questions at a United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) candidate forum in Altoona, Iowa, the White House contender was asked by UFCW President Marc Perrone if she would prosecute Trump for impeachment. "I've been calling for the impeachment of this president for a long time," replied Harris, a former prosecutor in San Francisco. "And, based on everything I know, yes."

    Fiona Hill, a former top National Security Council expert on Russia, praised ousted U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch during testimony on Monday before the House Intelligence Committee. Fox News has learned that Hill, who is testifying before the committee as part of the House's impeachment inquiry into President Trump, had high praise for Yovanovitch during the closed-door session. Yovanovitch, who herself testified before congressional lawmakers last Friday as part of the impeachment probe, was recalled from her ambassadorship in May by Trump, around the same time that Rudy Giuliani — the onetime New York mayor is Trump's personal attorney...

    America’s top two Trump-hating newspapers, The New York Times and The Washington Post, have now both called on Speaker Nancy Pelosi to hold a vote of the full House of Representatives to make the “impeachment inquiry” truly official - and to set rules like those for the inquiries targeting Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, so that the minority party and the White House weren’t totally sidelined. So far, though, Pelosi and her impeachment pointman, Rep. Adam Schiff, are moving the opposite way. President Trump and other Republicans have been complaining about Schiff’s decision to hold most hearings behind closed...

    One can NOT make false Russia collusion accusations (it is now apparent they were false) and THEN jump to an impeachment inquiry over alleged statements (also a false accusation). There is NO way this can continue. The Democrats are making a mockery of our judicial system and are going to cause the entire system to devolve into a circus. Stop, think about it! If they are allowed to do what they are doing and are not stopped, accusations will be invented against anyone someone doesn't like about anything and the circus will begin all over again. Suddenly whoever has the...

    On Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Last Word,” Representative Harley Rouda (D-CA) stated that once the impeachment inquiry process progresses a little further, “you will start to see some of this evidence coming out to the general public.” Rouda said, “As to whether the testimony that was provided today, as well as future and past witnesses, whether that’s going to be released in its entirety or partial parts thereof will be determined by Chairman Schiff and the other chairmen of the committee. But I would suffice it to say that once we get through this process a little bit further,...

    Yet more bad news for the impeachment mob, from Axios, of all places. Staffer Alexi McCammond chaired a focus group of 11 Ohioans concerning the “impeachment inquiry.” She discovered that the majority of them strongly disapprove of the so-called impeachment for a variety of reasons that boil down to a belief that Pelosi, Schiff, and company are out gallivanting rather that handling country’s business. Takeaways included: * …9 of the 11 participants raised their hands to say impeachment is a distraction from the issues they care most about -- things like wages and unemployment, border security, bringing troops home, and...

    We are constantly being lectured to by the media and Democrats that there is no “deep state.” That Trump and Republicans are just making up conspiracy theories to cover their own nefarious deeds. Most people who do not imbibe only quasi-propaganda outlets such as the New York Times or CNN, understand there is a deep state, or permanent state, or some ongoing cabal of government bureaucrats that pre-date and outlast presidential administrations and have their own agenda. And they understand that agenda for three years has included getting rid of a duly elected American President. The #resistance has included seemingly...

    The Bangor Daily News ^ | October 14, 2019 | The Editorial Board
    Donald Trump is president. He may not be a very good one, but he won an election. And no amount of irresponsible commentary from his defeated opponent will change that. The fact that Trump received nearly 3 million fewer total votes than Hillary Clinton doesn’t make him any less our president under the constitutionally prescribed Electoral College system. And the fact that Russia attempted to influence the 2016 election with a preference for Trump — something reports from special counsel Robert Muller and both Republicans and Democrats on the Senate Intelligence Committee have found — does not, on its own,...
