  • LOL: Schifty Schiff Explains His 'Guiding Philosophy' He's Using for the Impeachment Inquiry

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) appeared on CBS' "Face the Nation" on Sunday to discuss impeachment. Throughout the course of the interview, Schiff argued that the House's articles of impeachment should reflect the most serious crimes. "We have weighed in, all the chairs, Chairman Nadler and his staff, into what we would think would be appropriate in these articles. I can't go into those particular discussions but I can tell you, as a former prosecutor, it's always been my strategy in a charging decision – and an impeachment in the House is essentially a charging decision – to...
  • Nadler Argues Dems' Impeachment Case Is So Strong That a Jury Would Convict in 'Three Minutes Flat'

    House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NJ) on Sunday appeared on CNN's "State of the Union" to discuss Democrats' impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. According to Nadler, Democrats "have a very rock-solid case" against the president. I think the case we have, if presented to a jury, would be a guilty verdict in about three minutes flat, he said. "All this nonsense about hearsay there is considerable direct evidence.Nadler claimed the Democrats don't have more direct evidence because the White House has blocked officials from testifying in the impeachment inquiry, citing executive privilege.And it ill behooves a president...

    House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) said Sunday that President Trump would push to make the 2020 election unfair if he is acquitted of articles of impeachment in Congress. "The president, based on his past performance, he will do everything he can to make it not a fair election," Nadler said on NBC's "Meet the Press." "And that is part of what gives us the urgency to proceed with this impeachment," he added. House members and Senators will have to decide "in the face of an abundance of uncontested evidence" whether "the president poses a threat to our election,"...

    Democrats have finally admitted the genius of our founding fathers, a big break from their usual descriptions of them as white supremacists. In a new report, titled Constitutional Grounds for Presidential Impeachment, released Saturday, the majority staff on the House Judiciary Committee has attempted to expand the definition of what constitutes an impeachable offense so that seemingly any president throughout America's history would now be subject to impeachment. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler felt the need to write a forward attempting to explain why such a report is needed in the first place. While Nadler admits that other reports...

    Queen Nancy the First? On her Saturday morning MSNBC show, Joy Reid set out on a loud-and-proud feminist jag as she sought to pump up Nancy Pelosi. But the effort backfired. She claimed that impeachment was designed to prevent President Trump from becoming a "king." But she wound up painting an unflattering portrait of Pelosi as a disdainful member of royalty who misuses her power to abuse her lessers. As Reid portrayed her, Pelosi is someone who should only be approached by the peons of the media when she deigns to call on them. And woe betide those, like James...

    CNN has updated its report that President Trump continues to use his personal cell phone to make calls, despite repeated concerns expressed by his staff that such phone calls leave the president vulnerable to surveillance by foreign governments. In a tweet on Saturday, President Trump called upon "Fake News" CNN to retract the story that he describes as "totally false information and reporting." Trump also tweeted that he hasn't "had a personal cell phone for years" and only uses "government approved and issued phones." Fake News @CNN is reporting that I am still using personal cell phone for calls despite...

    I recently received a fundraising email from former Vice President Joe Biden that captured the profound difference in the approach to foreign policy between Democrats and President Trump. Biden wrote: Did you see the video of our friends and allies in London this week? World leaders were LAUGHING at the President of the United States, after he once again embarrassed himself and tarnished the reputation of the United States at a summit. The Democrats desperate desire to be loved by foreigners runs through the entire email. In effect, Biden is promising to have policies that would lead President Emmanuel Macron...

    White House letter at link. The White House on Friday signaled it will not participate in future impeachment proceedings in the House and called on House Democrats to end their impeachment inquiry. White House counsel Pat Cipollone, responding to a 5 p.m. deadline set by Democrats, wrote in a letter to the Democratic chairman of the House Judiciary Committee that it would be a reckless abuse of power for House Democrats to adopt articles of impeachment and would constitute the most unjust, highly partisan, and unconstitutional attempt at impeachment in our Nation's history. House Democrats have wasted enough of America's...

    So Nancy Pelosi has apparently decided to go all-in with her call for an impeachment vote. The standard wisdom on Pelosi is that she is not of the radical left, but shes cunning, a master tea leaf reader and Swamp survivor, and so she doesnt make rash moves. Shes evidently decided this is the right move at the right time. Well soon see. Theres something about the timing of Pelosis announcement relative to next Mondays release of IG Horowitzs report that makes it seem very possible shes going for a grand bargain with President Trump. Shes on record saying there...

    In a lengthy op-ed piece for the Christian Post, Chris Thurman claims that evangelicals who support Donald Trump are being both blind and foolish to do so. Therefore, labeling them as such is not sinful but appropriate and necessary. Is there any truth to his charge? Thurman explains that in using the word support he was not referring to evangelicals who voted for Trump in 2016, even though he believes they erred in voting for him.Rather, he wrote, Im referring to those evangelicals who continue to hold Trump up as a great leader, say he is Gods chosen one for...
  • Twitter Politics' Roots in Tabloid-War Politics

    Sometimes the latest new thing is something antique. That's especially true in American politics, which has had seriously contested presidential elections every four years (with one exception) since 1800 and competitions between the same two durable parties since 1856. We're even on our (lucky?) 13th presidential race since the nominating rules were changed, back in the 1970s, to favor primaries rather than caucuses. It's even true that new technology can bring back old politics. Case in point: President Donald Trump's use of Twitter, which is often lamented and sometimes effective, and occasionally backfires. In 140 -- and then 280 --...

    Law professor Pamela Karlan did more than cross the line in taking a cheap shot at President Donald Trump's son, Barron Trump, in her pro-impeachment testimony. In openly demonstrating her strong personal animus against Trump, she disqualified herself as an expert witness. Don't get me wrong; I'm not intimating that these proceedings have anything to do with evidence. They are merely a ruse to formalize the Democrats' pre-ordained conclusion. In responding to a softball question about the difference between a president and a king, Karlan said, "Contrary to what President Trump has said, Article 2 does not give him the...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has called for House Democrats to "proceed with articles of impeachment" against President Trump, but questions remain over whether she has secured enough Democrats to vote for impeachment as the effort barrels forward at breakneck speed. Pelosi, during her televised remarks about impeachment on Thursday, did not suggest any particular timeline for a vote, saying only, "We will proceed in a manner worthy of our oath of office." The timing of such a vote could be indicative of whether Pelosi has enough Democrats to vote to impeach: Pelosi is a master at reading her caucus. If...

    Florida Representative Matt Gaetz (R) blew his stack during the House Judiciary impeachment show this week. It was righteous anger, lending voice to the millions of Americans whove lost their tolerance for the parade of academics and unelected functionaries of government and their fawning media cheerleaders who continue to insist President Trump should be impeached and we voters are simply not sophisticated enough to understand why. Stanford law professor Pamela Karlan offered particularly shrill and hysterical commentary more fitting for a guest appearance on MSNBC than expert testimony before Congress."Put simply, a candidate for president should resist foreign interference in...

    It is tempting to describe Wednesdays impeachment hearing before the House Judiciary Committee as a farce. But it was worse than that. It made a travesty of fairness. With Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y. at the helm of the Judiciary Committee, there was no real chance that President Trump would be treated equitably. After all, Nadlers confederate and chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., had already obliterated any semblance of due process in impeachment hearings before his committee. The Schiff hearings were a lollapalooza of hearsay, opinion and grotesque speculation. So there was no reason to believe...
