  • Adam Schiff fights to keep impeachment subpoena records secret

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff moved to dismiss a lawsuit seeking access to secretive subpoenas the California Democrat issued for call records he made public during last year’s impeachment investigation of President Trump. His legal team, led by Douglas Letter, the Democratic-led House’s general counsel, told the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on Friday that “these requests and subpoenas were integral to the Committee’s inquiry and consistent with its mandate to investigate and issue a report” about whether Trump should be impeached. . . . In their filing on Friday, Schiff's lawyers argued Judicial Watch “has...

    It would have been hard to orchestrate a worse week for Democrats. From Iowa to impeachment, the political winds shifted against them. Speaker Nancy Pelosi, only a few months ago, had been praised by the American political press as a strategic genius. Her role in orchestrating the impeachment of President Donald Trump had her declared a political winner by a host of news network reporters, not just pundits. The Democrats started by coordinating with a whistleblower whose name everyone in Washington seems to know but only Sen. Rand Paul will dare utter. After that coordination, Democrats opened an investigation the...

    The partisan impeachment of President Donald Trump finally passed, mercifully, like a kidney stone, with Democrats grimacing helplessly during acquittal in the Senate on Wednesday. It's over. The cable news networks loved it because they love a show but there was no real drama. Americans knew for months how this would turn out. They knew Democrats didn't have the votes in the Senate. It was all about targeting select Republican senators in the next elections. The people turned off this farce of Democratic Impeachment Theater long ago. Americans aren't as dumb as some politicians think they are. They paid attention...
  • Case Closed On The Democrats’ Impeachment Circus, Time To Get Back To Work

    Despite the media and Democrats’ reliance on unnamed political operatives masquerading as whistleblowers, political spin, conspiracy theories, and, in many cases, outright lies, Senate Republicans held firm to the Constitution and acquitted President Trump of each of the Democrats’ sham articles of impeachment. Case closed. Zero wrongdoing. The senate made the right call. When the initial impeachment hearings were assigned to Adam Schiff’s Intelligence committee, Schiff tried to control the narrative by holding secret hearings in the Secure Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF.) The Schiff SCIF tactic was to make sure Republicans could not talk about the testimony without being accused...

    So, how did that work out for everybody? With impeachment now waning in the rear-view mirror, it is time to assess what it did for, or to, the cast of characters. President Trump enjoys heightened popularity following a State of the Union address that accrued to his lasting benefit, partly because of what he offered, and partly because of how his enemies reacted. A president pursued by Democrats for years could hardly have hoped for better than an evening of evidence that their grudges run so deep as to blow away decorous traditions spanning generations. If Trump did indeed get...

    Is there anyone on the planet more obnoxiously smug than neoconservative political pundit Bill Kristol? I’m not normally one to put much emphasis on personal appearance, but just a passing glance at that high forehead and pompous, arrogant grin should tell you the man thinks he knows way more than you do about, well, pretty much everything. And he’s not shy about telling you what he thinks, especially on all things Trump, and looking down on you disapprovingly if you dare to disagree. Truly, does anybody alive think Kristol wouldn’t be chortling along with the rest had he been included...

    So this is the week to write the final chapter of Impeachment 2020. How fitting that two stories that really matter have arisen to drown this sorry little spectacle in the obscurity it so richly deserves. The Iowa caucuses are a real story. There will be some candidate fates that receive a boost, while others will be dealt a blow. It’s kind of crazy that our roughly 30th-biggest state wields so much power, followed by New Hampshire at roughly 40th. But that’s what we do, and the next few days will be a big deal at the ballot boxes. Whatever...

    Once House Democrats voted to impeach President Donald Trump, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) made the media rounds with the same phrase: "Once a president is impeached, he's impeached for life," she would say with a smile. "We had confidence- we have confidence in our case that it is impeachable, that this president is impeached for life, regardless of any gamesmanship on the part of Mitch McConnell, however, that could still come to bear," Pelosi told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos last month. "We're still confident in the impeachment and we think it's enough testimony to remove him from office."On Sunday, House Minority...

    Sorry folks. It looks like this trial is not over yet. Although the Senate voted down the option to call forth more witnesses Friday night, the actual vote on the two articles of impeachment, abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, has been delayed until next Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET, following a few rounds of closing arguments. The new schedule means the vote is arriving the day after President Trump is delivering his fourth State of the Union. Sen. Blunt tells @LACaldwellDC leaders have arrived at a deal: - Resolution tonight with four amendments-Nothing happening this weekend-Monday: closing arguments-Tuesday...

    Throughout the impeachment trial, all eyes have been on four senators – Susan Collins (R-ME), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Mitt Romney (R-UT) and Lamar Alexander (R-TN) – who are considered "toss-up" voters. It's hard to gauge exactly how they plan to vote, especially when those votes are along party lines. On Friday night, Collins, Murkowski and Alexander all voted along with their Republican colleagues to block new witnesses, something the House Impeachment Managers have pushed from the start. According to Alexander, the House impeachment team proved President Donald Trump withheld more than $300 million in military aid to Ukraine as a...

    As the Senate appears to move towards acquitting President Donald Trump on two articles of impeachment, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi refused to rule out further action to hold the president accountable. Pelosi was questioned on whether the House would attempt to compel former National Security Adviser John Bolton to testify in the lower chamber should the Senate trial end without his testimony. "This is in the Senate now," Pelosi, D-Calif., said, holding onto optimism that the upper chamber would call on witnesses. "I hope and I pray that the senators can handle the truth and listen to not only John...

    Supreme Court Justice John Roberts on Wednesday blocked an attempt by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) to pose questions regarding the so-called “whistleblower” — the individual who sparked the House Democrats’ partisan impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump — according to reports. Politico and The Hill state Roberts indicated he would oppose reading Paul’s questions, as it is believed he would be forced to name or provide identifying information on the alleged individual. Speaking to reporters following a Republican dinner, Paul signaled he may still fight to have his question read. “It’s still an ongoing process; it may happen tomorrow,” he...

    The national narrators of our politics love brandishing the word "historic" to describe the Trump impeachment process. But by now it feels unexceptional, more like Chapter 27 of the Same Old Saga. In their overdramatic Trump narrative, the president is always a democracy-killing villain who is about to get his comeuppance. Month after month, network evening-news coverage of Donald Trump's presidency has been notable mostly for its perpetual negativity. The Senate impeachment trial isn't the slightest bit different. They spent more than two years "reporting" that a Russian collusion conspiracy would be exposed and prematurely end the Trump presidency. Now...

    Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi insists she does not "hate" President Donald Trump. Responding to a reporter's question after she directed the Democratic House Committee chairmen to draft articles of impeachment, Pelosi said: "As a Catholic, I resent your using the word 'hate' in a sentence that addresses me. I don't hate anyone. I was raised in a way that is a heart full of love and always pray for the president. And I still pray for the president. I pray for the president all the time. So don't mess with me when it comes to words like that." Yet,...
