    Impeachment rallies are being held across the country. Organizers said they’re fed up with President Trump and the way he’s leading our country. One of the rallies was held in San Francisco Sunday afternoon off the Embarcadero. “This is the San Francisco location of a nationwide set of rallies going on,” Organizer Vara Ramakrishnan said. “There’s about 57 rallies in cities and towns and small streets all over the country. What we’re doing is we’re showing our support to congress which is headed back to DC tomorrow at a uniquely dangerous time in our country’s history.” Ramakrishnan continued. “Families, little...

  • Impeachment Just A Smokescreen To Cover ‘Crowdstrike’ Imran Awan Controversy

    After years of unsuccessfully torturing republican witnesses for non-existent evidence that President Donald Trump colluded with Russia, the Democrats have tossed the entire investigation out the window. Instead they are focusing like a laser on the phone call President Trump had with the newly elected leader of the Ukraine. They want you to think that the big deal is the part that concerns Joe Biden. They tap-dance around the rest, hoping — since Democrats don’t pray — that nobody will notice the part about “Crowdstrike.” When you take a hard look at the history of the underlying controversy, it’s easy...
  • Ridiculous Shift – Adam Schiff No Longer Requires CIA Gossip for Impeachment Testimony…

    Well, this was entirely predictable.  First the impeachment strategy needed the anonymous CIA gossiper to testify.  Then it leaked about how HPSCI Chairman Adam Shiff and his Lawfare staff actually created the “gossiper’s” silly third-hand complaint to an inspector general; who then changed ‘gossip’ rules to allow second and third-hand hearsay.It was all becoming more brutally sketchy, and the impeachment jenga blocks were tenuous at best.  As a result, republicans were going to inquire about how the CIA gossiper constructed his complaint; and then the complaint attorney’s started saying the gossiper would not appear in person, but rather write more complaint letters instead of...

    Washington Examiner ^ | October 12, 2019 11:12 PM | Byron York
    A week ago, House Republicans complained that Democrats imposed excessive secrecy on interviews conducted as part of the drive to impeach President Trump. Now, the situation appears to have gotten worse. Friday's interview of Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, marked a new point — a low point, as Republicans see it — in Democratic efforts to keep impeachment information out of public view. In this way: The two previous impeachment interviews, with former special envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker and Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson, were conducted in the format of what is known as a...

    Byron York wrote in the Washington Examiner on Saturday that Democrats are using a secret impeachment process to create a narrative that leaves out contradictory facts and prevents Republicans from presenting any real defense. York noted that Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee, chaired by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), are using the same tacit they used in 2017 to silence then-chair Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) with a phony ethics investigation. They are having witnesses testify in deposition, rather than in public or by transcription, which invokes ethics rules that prevent members from sharing any details publicly. Democrats then leak selective...

    Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.) slammed Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) for his handling of the impeachment inquiry, saying the process is filled with "cherry-picked leaks, withholding of key facts and ... lying." Zeldin told John Castimatidis on his Sunday radio show that the impeachment process "kind of a flying by the seat of your pants type process" for Schiff, who is leading the impeachment process. "Something that I find outrageous is the cherry-picked leaks, the withholding of key facts and the lying about other claims that's misleading the American public," Zeldin said. Zeldin said he has sat in on a total...

    Schiff: 'Republicans would like nothing better' than for impeachment inquiry witnesses to coordinate testimony House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) defending conducting closed interviews as part of the House impeachment inquiry, suggesting House Republicans wanted public hearings so witnesses could coordinate their testimony. “The Republicans would like nothing better if witnesses could tailor their testimony to other witnesses,” Schiff told Margaret Brennan during an interview on CBS's "Face the Nation." He was responding to a question about GOP contentions that Democrats are selectively leaking information on their interviews. “We may very well call some of the same witnesses in...

    MSN News ^ | October 12, 2019 | Bill Powell, Newsweek
    As House Democrats ponder the politics of impeaching Donald J. Trump, they are weighing the possible outcomes. An impeachment inquiry could weaken the president before next year's election and give the White House back to the Democrats, or it could backfire, the way the GOP's effort to oust Bill Clinton did in 1998. But there's a third option: impeachment could succeed. As a senior staffer on the House Judiciary Committee framed the dilemma, "What if we're left with President Pence?" That scenario has seemed far-fetched — until this week. At the moment there don't seem to be enough GOP senators...

    The New York Post ^ | 10/12/2019 | Mary Kay Linge
    The poll released last week by Fox News that claimed most Americans favor the impeachment of President Trump underrepresented Republicans and Independents, The Post has found. The poll said 51% of voters were in favor of impeachment and removal from office, while 40% did not want him impeached. Princeton New Jersey pollster Braun Research, which conducted the survey, noted 48% of its respondents were Democrats. But the actual breakdown of party affiliation is 31% Democrat, 29% Republican, and 38% Independent, according to Gallup. A poll weighted for party affiliation would have concluded that 44.9% favored impeachment and 44.4% oppose it,...

    The House is on fire. And with each passing day, Donald Trump defiles the office of the president. If only past defrocked presidents could provide a roadmap for this firestorm. Andrew Johnson fought impeachment vigorously and survived removal, but never won reelection. Richard Nixon got in the way of justice, but eventually bowed to the rule of law, accepting his asterisk in the annals of history and resigning before certain removal. Bill Clinton expressed contrition, went on to complete his presidency with high approval ratings and has remained a popular former president. If you care about democracy, the rule of...

    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...

    A retiring Republican senator who’s being closely watched for his view on President Donald Trump’s potential impeachment strengthened his stance against Democrats’ investigation of the president on Wednesday. Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., said in a written statement that impeaching President Trump “would be a mistake.” Just last week, Alexander issued a more cautious statement. He said the Senate Intelligence Committee was probing Mr. Trump’s attempt to prod Ukraine into investigating former Vice President Joe Biden, a 2020 Democratic presidential contender, and added, “I want to know the facts before I comment.” Alexander, 79, is respected on both sides of the...

    President Trump is fighting back against an impeachment inquiry by taking his counterpunching style on the road. What do fans at one of his rallies make of the scandal? "It's the first time I've worn my cap downtown," confesses Jake Biehn as he waits for President Donald Trump's rally to start in Minneapolis, a city currently run by Democrats. If he worried about standing out in his Make America Great Again baseball cap, he needn't have been. The centre of the city is a bobbing sea of red and white. The slogan is on t-shirts - along with Women for...

    ..Tells Us Much About His Political Theatrics During a recent Congressional hearing on the Trump/Zelensky whistleblower complaint, House Intel Committee Chair Adam Schiff (D-CA) despicably engaged in a parody reading of the call’s transcript, just outright making up things about the call that weren’t said. Republicans were rightly outraged over the theatrical stunt for two reasons: 1) It made a mockery of the seriousness of the hearings and 2) The words weren’t Trump’s. At all. As even Democrat journalist George Stephanopoulos noted when correcting House Speaker Pelosi’s comments on the issue last week, Schiff’s accounting of the call was his...

    **SNIP** The “official” House impeachment inquiry, in its open contempt for even basic due process, makes the Faber trial climactic scene (3:18) seem like “déjà vu all over again.” The White House’s October 8 letter to key House leaders lists the due-process rights denied the president: (a) to be apprised of laws allegedly violated and all evidence produced, including exculpatory evidence, plus being given full access to evidence that impeaches the credibility of prosecution witnesses; (b) to confront and cross-examine prosecution witnesses; (c) to call defense witnesses and introduce defense evidence; (d) to make objections to witness examinations and admissibility...

    President Trump on Thursday held his first rally since Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that the House would launch an impeachment inquiry. The scene outside was raucous, and included a Trump supporter getting spit on during an interview with VICE News. The scene inside was just as strange, as Trump went off script for pretty much the whole speech. All hour and forty minutes of it. Though he might have sounded more than a little concerned about the prospect of impeachment, there is one way that the impeachment inquiry is not hurting him right now: fundraising. Campaign manager Brad Parscale told...

    The former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine told congressional investigators on Friday that she was removed from her post earlier this year due to "a concerted campaign against me," according to a transcript of her opening statement. The New York Times and The Washington Post both published the opening statement, which was given to three congressional committees hearing closed-door testimony from the former ambassador, Marie Yovanovitch. Yovanovitch said that when she was recalled to Washington from Kiev, Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan told her that she had "done nothing wrong and that this was not like other situations where he...
