  • Rand Paul: Trump Senate impeachment trial an 'illegitimate procedure' without John Roberts

    01/24/2021 3:30:25 AM PST · by RandFan · 85 replies
    Washington Examiner ^ | Jan 23 | by Andrew Mark Miller,
    Sen. Rand Paul says that a Senate impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump that doesn’t include Chief Justice John Roberts would be an illegitimate process. “If Justice Roberts won’t preside over this sham ‘impeachment’ then why would it ever be considered legitimate?” the Kentucky Republican tweeted Friday. “Hint: It won’t be.” Later in the day, Paul joined Fox News’s Sean Hannity and elaborated on his impeachment stance, calling it an “illegitimate procedure” if Roberts isn’t there. “It isn’t a real impeachment. It’s going to be a fake, partisan impeachment,” Paul said about a process without Roberts. “The story is,”...

    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said on Friday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is sending the article of impeachment against former President Trump to the Senate on Monday, paving the way for a trial. The House of Representatives this month voted to impeach Trump for the second time in his presidency for "incitement of insurrection" after a mob of his supporters besieged the Capitol on Jan. 6 in a failed attempt to stop the certification of then-President-elect Joe Biden's electoral college win. "I've spoken to Speaker Pelosi who informed me that the article will be delivered to the Senate on...
  • Hey, Dems, You Won't Have to Dig Deep to Get to the Bottom of the National Guard's Eviction at US Capitol

    Bronson wrote about this last night. It’s a total disgrace. It’s unforgivable. It’s how this town treats the military. Thousands of National Guardsmen were evicted from the grounds of the US Capitol. They were caught resting in the nearby parking garages. They were deployed to protect the capital from any attack during the inauguration of Joe Biden. The January 6 riot that engulfed the US Capitol was the cause for what could only be described as a military occupation of the city. Luckily, nothing happened when Biden was sworn in as the 46th president of the United States. Yet, for...
  • Now the Washington Post Admits Trump Did Not Incite the Capitol Riot

    With the second bogus impeachment in the books, the Washington Post has finally seen fit to admit that President Trump did not incite the storming of the U.S. Capitol on January 6 with his speech, acknowledging that it was, in fact, planned in advance. The article, published Tuesday, the day before Biden’s inauguration, declares in its headline “Self-styled militia members planned on storming the U.S. Capitol days in advance of Jan. 6 attack, court documents say” and opens with the following paragraphs.

    Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., is fighting efforts to convict President Trump in the Senate after he was impeached for a second time by the House of Representatives, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., should do the same, Graham told Fox News’ "Hannity" Tuesday. "What we need right now is Sen. McConnell to unequivocally say the second impeachment of Donald Trump after he leaves office is not only unconstitutional, it is bad for the country," said Graham, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. "Stand up and fight back." Graham praised McConnell for helping President Trump with "everything that he...

  • DOJ Drops Insider Trading Investigation Into Sen. Richard Burr

    The months-long investigation into allegations that Republican Sen. Richard Burr of North Carolina engaged in insider trading has been closed by the Justice Department and it will not pursue any charges, the GOP senator announced on Tuesday. "Tonight, the Department of Justice informed me that it has concluded its review of my personal financial transactions conducted early last year. The case is now closed," Burr said in a statement. The FBI launched a probe into Burr's business dealings after the senator, who served as the chairman of the Intelligence Committee, privately warned a group of well-connected constituents in February to...

    American Greatness ^ | January 18, 2021 | Julie Kelly
    Election Lawsuits Move Forward Despite Silencing CrusadeEven though Trump’s fate is sealed, the Supreme Court still has time to rectify the election’s many wrongs. The only remaining question is—will they? As the country looks back at the mayhem that has unfolded over the past few months, one moment stands out: The most consequential event since Election Day—hands down—was the Supreme Court’s rejection of Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s lawsuit against four states that helped decide the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.In fact, it’s easy to assume if the court had agreed to consider the petition, the melee on January...
  • Statehood for D.C. and Puerto Rico only needs 50 votes

    The Week ^ | Jon Walker
    Many journalists and political commentators have been pessimistic about the possibility of statehood for the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. This seems to be primarily because, despite the recent Democratic victories in Georgia, moderate senators like Joe Manchin (D-W.V.), Diane Feinstein (D-Calif), and Angus King (I-Maine) continue to support the legislative filibuster. It is impossible to imagine Republican senators voting to give Democratic-leaning areas full representation, so the issue must be dead on arrival in the upper chamber. But in a recent CNN interview, Manchin himself provided evidence for why this thinking is all wrong......."

    CNN is making no mistake about it: It wants to censor and close Newsmax from broadcasting as a cable news channel. Apparently jolted by the fact Newsmax has skyrocketed to become the 4th highest-rated cable news channel in the country, the liberal CNN is decrying what it calls Newsmax's "election denialism" and is seeking to have it "deplatformed" from cable and satellite systems across the nation.

    Parler's website suddenly reappeared online Sunday afternoon with a message from its CEO, John Matze: 'Hello world, is this thing on?' The message, dated January 16, implies that the social network popular with members of the far right has found a new online hosting platform, after Parler was booted from Amazon Web Services on January 10 in the wake of the Capitol siege. Parler now appears to be hosted by Epik, according to a WHOIS search. Epik is a hosting platform that supports Gab, 8chan and other services often used by members of the far-right. Prior to hosting Parler, Epik...

    SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A Utah activist who filmed the fatal shooting of a Trump supporter during the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol will be released on house arrest, a federal judge ruled Friday. John Sullivan, 26, a self-described journalist and liberal activist, was arrested Thursday and charged with civil disorder, violent entry or disorderly conduct and entering a restricted building or grounds. He made his initial court appearance Friday via video conference where he was released on multiple conditions of release, including remaining at his home when he isn't going to work, religious services or court appearances......"

    Just the news ^ | Daniel Payne
    An FBI agent has claimed in a sworn affidavit that a progressive activist was participating in the Capitol riot of Jan. 6, taking an active role in the chaos that unfolded that day rather than merely being present to document the riot as he earlier claimed. John Sullivan, an anti-Trump activist from Utah, told Just the News last week that he had been present at the riot, including inside the Capitol, "specifically [as] a journalist, just to record the events that were going down." Yet FBI agent Matthew Foulger alleged in an affidavit on Wednesday that, rather than merely act...

    It seems Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) has ticked off Republicans in her state. The at-large representative voted with Democrats to impeach President Trump following last week's riot at the Capitol. The FBI is only beginning its investigation of last week's riot, but the lack of findings didn't stop Liz Cheney from joining House Democrats to hold the president responsible for the violence. Following Cheney's vote to impeach the president, the Wyoming Republican Party said in a statement that never before has the state party seen "this type of an outcry from our fellow Republicans." According to the party, "the anger...

    The deadly riot at the US Capitol bore the markings of an organized operation planned well in advance of the January 6 joint session of Congress. A small number of cadre used the cover of a huge rally to stage its attack. Before it began, I saw from my vantage point on the West Front of the Capitol, what appeared to be four separate cells or units: Plainclothes militants. Militant, aggressive men in Trump and MAGA gear at a front police line at the base of the temporary presidential inaugural platform; Agents-provocateurs. Scattered groups of men exhorting the marchers to...
