    Months before a whistleblower complaint that would spark the Democrat effort for impeachment, a shadowy liberal group founded and staffed by Obama administration alums and former Democrat congressional staffers launched an outside investigation into whether President Trump’s allies were seeking “foreign interference” from Ukraine in the 2020 elections. The group, American Oversight, began investigating the issue in May — more than two months before the “whistleblower” filed a complaint alleging Trump was “using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country to investigate one of the President’s main domestic political rivals.” The group’s purpose is to...
  • House impeachment managers say Senate acquitting Trump would look 'rigged'

    Washington Examiner ^ | 1/23/20 | Mike Brest
    Three of the House impeachment managers presiding over the impeachment trial in the Senate claimed that if the Senate votes to acquit President Trump, it would lead to the belief that the process was "rigged." Democratic Reps. Zoe Lofgren of California, Sylvia Garcia of Texas, and Val Demings of Florida said that if the Senate votes against removing the president from office, it would not completely exonerate him, in part because he was still impeached by the House, according to NBC News. "It seems to me, if there's not a full, fair trial with witnesses, he may get an acquittal,...

    Regular Fox News guest Sean Parnell on Wednesday announced that he will challenge Democratic Rep. Conor Lamb in Pennsylvania's 17th Congressional District. President Trump praised Parnell earlier this month during a visit to Pittsburgh, saying he would be a formidable challenger to Lamb. "I am so excited to announce that today I'm declaring my candidacy for the great people of Pennsylvania's 17th District for Congress of the United States," Parnell, an Army veteran, said in an appearance on "Fox & Friends." *** Lamb, a Marine veteran and rising star in the Democratic Party, defeated former Rep. Keith Rothfus (R-Pa.) in...

    I WROTE in TCW a year ago that the election of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib to Congress signified that the Corbynisation of the Democratic party had begun.Their shilling for the Iranian regime shows that this is now complete. Omar and Tlaib are CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations, linked to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas) entryists. The insipid Democratic Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, has capitulated to these Islamists over and over again. The Democrats have made grievance politics into a fine art, yet their lack of empathy for the Iranian people defying their brutal oppressors through protests on the...

    Despite House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s insistence that impeachment was a “somber” and "sad" event, her signing of the articles of impeachment Wednesday showed how serious she was about her past claims.  As Beth reported, even CNN commentators called her out over the optics of her smiling, taking photographs, and handing out pens delivered on silver platters.  Nancy Pelosi’s souvenir pens served up on silver platters to sign the sham articles of impeachment...She was so somber as she gave them away to people like prizes.— Stephanie Grisham (@PressSec) January 15, 2020 "I thought that was a little jarring and certainly, I...

    The Federalist ^ | January 16, 2020 | Ben Domenech
    House Republican leadership was enormously successful in how they handled hearings and managed to attain a bipartisan vote. The Senate should take note. The Senate takes up impeachment today, in a formal approach that will at long last spark the trial we’ve expected, and lead to the all but certain vote to acquit the president, which will in all likelihood be bipartisan. It seems in the interest of Mitch McConnell to wrap this up quickly, in roughly two weeks, and that’s something that will likely be achieved without calling additional witnesses – or in the case of such a move,...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday lied from the House floor about what Trump said during his July 25 phone call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Pelosi named impeachment managers on Wednesday morning ahead of the House vote. The Speaker spread more lies about Trump’s call with Zelensky and claimed Trump said “do me a favor.” “He could say to the president, ‘do me a favor,’ do me a favor…what is this ‘do me a favor?'” Pelosi said from the House floor. The transcript, which President Trump released several months ago, clearly shows President Trump said, “do us a favor.”...

    Two things happened simultaneously on Wednesday: (a) The House of Representatives transmitted to the Senate two articles of impeachment approved on straight partisan lines a month ago, and (b) the House’s impeachment inquiry - yes, it’s still very much alive - highlighted new, relevant evidence it has turned up about the activities in Ukraine of President Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, and Giuliani’s associates. The Democrats’ strategy is coming clear. The House provided the Senate with two half-baked impeachment articles. House Democrats rushed through the investigation, forgoing salient witnesses and evidence, because of the political calendar. The charges are weak...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi waited more than three weeks to deliver the impeachment articles for President Donald Trump -- a seemingly odd move after Democrats spent weeks arguing that removing Trump was urgently needed to protect the integrity of the 2020 election. Even as some Democrats joined Republicans in calling for the articles to move, Pelosi coolly responded that she would do so only when she was good and ready. "It cracks me up to see on TV, ‘Oh, the pressure,'" Pelosi told reporters Friday, just moments before telling her colleagues in a letter that she was ready to send...

    After nearly a month of dithering, Nancy Pelosi is finally accepting defeat in her standoff with Mitch McConnell over impeachment. Despite insisting as recently as Thursday that she would wait to transmit the articles of impeachment against Donald Trump to the Senate until she was confident that the trial in the upper chamber would proceed on terms favorable to her party, she quietly backed down on Friday morning. Her letter to Democratic colleagues in the House announced that the articles would be sent next week even though McConnell has made it clear that none of her demands - testimony from...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has raked in oodles of campaign cash, but the Democratic socialist darling has been a real penny-pincher when it comes to spreading the wealth to the House’s Democratic campaign committee — and that’s vexing her fellow Dems. The far-left Bronx-Queens congressional freshman has not given a dime to the Democratic Congressional Committee, controlled by House leadership, her campaign spokesman Corbin Trent confirmed Friday. **SNIP** “Sometimes the question comes: ‘Do you want to be in a majority or do you want to be in the minority?’ And do you want to be part of a team?” Rep.

  • House Passes War Powers Resolution In Rebuke Of Trump's Actions Against Iran

    The House of Representatives on Thursday voted in favor of a War Powers Resolution meant to limit President Trump’s military action toward Iran following an escalation in tensions between Washington and Tehran. The resolution passed, 224-194, mostly along party lines, but both parties had some defectors: eight Democrats voted against the measure and three Republicans voted in favor of it. Independent Rep. Justin Amash, who left the Republican Party last year, also voted in favor of the measure. "We deserve the respect from the administration and that Congress deserves under the Constitution,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said on the...

    The US House of Representatives will vote on a resolution this week to restrict President Donald Trump’s ability to attack Iran, according to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The War Powers Resolution “reasserts Congress’s long-established oversight responsibilities by mandating that if no further Congressional action is taken, the Administration’s military hostilities with regard to Iran cease within 30 days,” the Democratic Speaker wrote in the letter.
  • Impeachment Witness Says Case Against Trump 'Collapses Under Weight of Time'

    Democrats are demanding Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell call a list of witnesses the Democrats believe will bolster their impeachment case against President Trump. In their rush to impeach the president before the holidays, the Democrats abandoned their legal fight to subpoena the witnesses they once proclaimed were central to building their case. Now Democrats want a do-over in the Senate.  Jonathan Turley, the Republican witness and legal scholar who testified before the House Judiciary Committee during the Democrat-led impeachment inquiry, wrote an op-ed explaining how the Democrats' weak case against the president is already collapsing as Senate Republicans continue to...

    Think about all of the media panel discussions on gun ownership you have watched; segments where second amendment advocates were ridiculed by media pundits for daring to bring up the possibility of the U.S. government using arms against U.S. citizens who hold opposing political views… There are hundreds of recent reference points. Now consider, earlier today U.S. House of Representatives Legal Counsel, Douglas Letter, argued in court it would be a possible remedy -for a conflict between branches of government- for Speaker Nancy Pelosi to order an armed “gun battle” between the House and the United States Department of Justice....

    **SNIP** It’s possible that Pelosi could still send the articles over to the Senate. McConnell and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., could still forge a pact dictating the contours of a Senate trial. That’s what happened in 1999 when Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott, R-Miss., and Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle, D-S.D., reached an agreement for President Clinton’s impeachment trial. But it’s tough to see how McConnell and Schumer can reach an accord signed off on by all 100 senators the way Lott and Daschle did two decades ago. And why would McConnell even entertain much of a conversation...

    Rep. Phil Roe (R-Tenn.) announced Friday that he will not seek reelection, making the six-term lawmaker the latest House Republican to head for the doors. "After prayerful consideration, I have decided to retire at the end of the 116th Congress," Roe said in a statement. "Serving East Tennesseans these past 11 years has been the honor of my life, and I will be forever grateful for the trust my friends and neighbors put in me to represent them," said Roe, the top Republican on the House Veterans' Affairs Committee. "As someone who practiced medicine for over 30 years, I said...
