    Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill) says she will block Senate confirmation of 1,123 senior U.S. Armed Forces promotions unless Defense Secretary Mark Esper agrees to promote Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman. Vindman served on the White House National Security Council and gained fame for testifying in the House impeachment hearings that, in his opinion, Trump was too aggressively pushing Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate corruption at the Burisma corporation. Burisma also paid Hunter Biden—son of then Vice-President Joe Biden--$80,000 per month for a "no show" job on the company's Board of Directors. Trump fired Vindman from his White House job...

    A House Democrat who’s a frequent critic of the Trump administration submitted a resolution Tuesday calling for the impeachment of Attorney General William Barr. House Resolution 1032, filed by U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen of Tennessee, accuses the nation’s top law enforcement officer of using his job to pursue political goals. “Today, I introduced #HRes1032, which would authorize an impeachment inquiry into Attorney General Barr,” Cohen wrote on Twitter. “He has politicized the DOJ, undermined the rule of law, abused his power, obstructed justice & violated the first amendment. He is not fit to be Attorney General.”

    A former Obama administration official and House counsel who helped draft the articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump has a book coming out this summer. Norman Eisen’s “A Case for the American People: The United States v. Donald J. Trump” will be released July 28, Crown announced Tuesday. Eisen served as the ethics czar under President Barack Obama and as counsel to Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee during the impeachment process. Crown, a division of Penguin Random House, is calling the book “a detailed behind-the-scenes account of the attempts to bring the President to justice.” “As a lead...

    Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., had a testy exchange Wednesday with a Justice Department whistleblower who admitted during a House Judiciary Committee hearing that he sought to work House Democrats during the Trump impeachment proceedings. John Elias, a senior career official in the Justice Department’s antitrust division, is one of two whistleblowers who testified before the Democrat-led committee on alleged politically-motivated overreach by Attorney General William Barr and other appointees. During his testimony, Elias accused his supervisors of improperly investigating mergers involving cannabis companies because of a “personal dislike of the industry.” Collins questioned Elias on his own political background, asking...
  • Bolton says impeachment failed because Dems played into Trump's hands

    Former Trump National Security Adviser John Bolton said in an interview with NPR released Monday morning that Democrats' impeachment efforts failed in part because they tried to fit impeachment into their party's primary calendar, a move he said played into President Trump's hands because the president benefited from the "very narrow focus" of the impeachment investigation. Bolton's interview with NPR is part of a media blitz by the now-shunned former member of Trump's inner circle ahead of the publication of his tell-all about his time as national security adviser titled "The Room Where it Happened: A White House Memoir." Bolton...

    John Roberts is a politician — a politician who consistently makes laws, inconsistently applies the Constitution, and can't be voted out of office. Knock, knock. Who’s there? Unelected leftist politicians in robes with lifetime tenure. Turns out, the Supreme Court is a joke, and the punchline is Chief Justice John Roberts.Two high court decisions this week brought that reality into focus, when the George W. Bush-appointed chief sided with leftist justices to say sexual orientation is “sex,” and that the current commander in chief can’t undo unlawful executive action from a past president because of his reasons.Roberts has quite the...

    An Army officer’s promotion is in jeopardy over what some officials fear could be White House retaliation for his role in last year’s impeachment inquiry, raising the possibility that President Trump might again intervene in military affairs, according to officials familiar with the matter. Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who received a Purple Heart for his actions in Iraq and later served as a White House aide on European affairs, is among hundreds of officers selected to be promoted to full colonel this year. Such promotions are typically signed off on by Army and then Pentagon leaders before moving to the...

    State Rep. Daryl Metcalfe has introduced a resolution calling for the impeachment of Gov. Tom Wolf. Metcalfe, a Butler County Republican, introduced the resolution Tuesday. The resolution has 24 co-sponsors. Republican lawmakers, who control the General Assembly, have clashed with the Democratic governor’s management during the coronavirus crisis. GOP lawmakers have argued Wolf’s actions have crippled the state’s economy and they say he has regularly exceeded his authority. “While these are certainly unprecedented and chaotic times, Gov. Tom Wolf must be held accountable for his actions that have harmed so many of our citizens and violated so many of our...

    "Real Time" host Bill Maher looked back with apparent regret Friday night on the Democratic-led impeachment of President Trump, saying it "turned out to be a horrible thing." During a conversation with liberal filmmaker Michael Moore, Maher pointed to Trump's recent firings of inspectors general, most recently the ousting of State Department watchdog Steve Linick, and complained the firings got very little media attention amid the coronavirus pandemic. Moore then pivoted the conversation to the Russia investigation -- claiming Trump "bullied" former Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and insisting Mueller "got scared" and refused to interrogate the president.

    This collection of leading legal experts discusses a range of federal crimes that apply to the conduct of President Donald Trump, based on the evidence produced by the House of Representatives’ impeachment inquiry. These crimes include all of the federal offences listed in the Chapter headings, except for Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. In that Chapter, the author concludes that the impeachment inquiry did not examine the relevant evidence for one of the elements of the crime, although a lot of that evidence has arisen in investigative reports by journalists. The final Chapter includes an important federal law that does not...

    During a recent edition of the Ingraham Angle, Laura Ingraham announced said she was in possession of State Department emails from May 1, 2019 showing that New York Times reporter Ken Vogel inquired about a 2016 Obama White House meeting with Ukrainian prosecutors. That meeting took place at the White House the day before President-elect Trump’s inauguration. At least seven Ukrainians were registered as visitors that day. According to Ingraham, the person who checked them into the White House that day was the person who later became the whistleblower that kicked off the sham impeachment we’re laboring through right now....

    On Monday, the House Democrats filed a brief that with the Supreme Court that the House was actively pursuing new articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump including “the possible exercise of improper political influence over recent decisions made in the Roger Stone and Michael Flynn prosecutions, both of which were initiated by the special counsel.” The argument is meant to justify the continued demand for redacted grand-jury material from the now closed Special Counsel investigation into the Russian collusion investigation. I have long supported the congressional demands for documents withheld by the Trump Administration as well as witnesses, including in my testimony...

    The highly vaunted Trump-hating U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch, has been caught lying through her teeth, under oath, to Congress. John Solomon, who conducted a Freedom of Information Act query, has the goods: During her testimony, the ambassador told lawmakers her knowledge about Burisma and its relationship with Hunter Biden was limited mostly to a briefing before she went to Kiev as the top U.S. diplomat and what she read in news reports. Newly released memos state Yovanovitch had a direct meeting with a Burisma representative in December 2016, and received a detailed letter from the company's lawyer. It's...

    Former Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch testified before Congress that her knowledge about corrupt Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings and Hunter Biden's lucrative position on the board came only from what she read in press reports and a briefing she received by the Obama State Department ahead of her Senate confirmation hearing. But newly uncovered documents show the former ambassador's knowledge of the two subjects was much greater than she told Congress under oath. Citizens United obtained State Department emails this week showing former Ambassador Yovanovitch was involved in discussions regarding Burisma and even attended a meeting with representatives of...

    I started reading through and or skimming the tranche of released transcripts of testimony that has been hidden from view for far too long yesterday and found myself on the second Bannon interview. These are in alphabetical order with dates also listed oddly, so you need to pay attention when a witness testimony spans two days, such as Bannon’s, as it can be confusing when reading. Bannon’s has the two days with the second day listed first. I had read beyond Bannon when I realized there was a transcript missing. The transcript for Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson is...

    Today the republican majority is not judging the President Clinton with fairness, but impeaching him with the vengeance. In the investigation of the President, fundamental principles which Americans hold dear, privacy, fairness, checks and balances have been seriously violated. And why? As we are here today, because the republicans in the House [of Representatives] are paralyzed with hatred of President Clinton. And until the republicans free themselves of this hatred our country will suffer. I rise to oppose these unfair motions, which call for removal of the President of the United States from office, and in doing so wish to...

    A call by former President George W. Bush for humanity to jettison partisanship amid the Chinese coronavirus pandemic has drawn a sharp rebuke from President Donald Trump. Bush published a video message on Saturday urging unity and togetherness amid the coronavirus’ outbreak, which received 4.4 million views on Twitter as of Sunday morning. Bush’s plea amounted to a call for people to ignore partisanship to protect the most vulnerable and to assist those who have become unemployed. (snip) The president’s (Trump's) response was straight to the point, outlining Bush’s absence when Trump was being excoriated during his impeachment proceedings. “.@PeteHegseth...
