  • House Intel Committee Republicans Boycott Hearing Due to Schiff’s Refusal to Address FISA Abuses

    Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee boycotted a hearing on Wednesday, complaining that the committee’s Democratic chairman Adam Schiff has neglected proper oversight of the intelligence community by failing to hold a hearing on the Justice Department inspector general’s report detailing the FBI’s FISA abuses. “Under your chairmanship, the House Intelligence Committee has strayed far from its mandate of overseeing the Intelligence Community,” the panel’s nine GOP members wrote in a letter to Schiff obtained by the Daily Caller. “Until the Committee prioritizes oversight activities related to urgent and critical concerns, Republican Members cannot support distractions from our core responsibilities,”...
  • Sen. Murkowski Says She “Cannot Vote to Convict” Trump – Trump’s Behavior as “Shameful and Wrong

    RINO Senator Lisa Murkowski (AK) said Monday that she will not vote to convict President Trump. “I cannot vote to convict. The Constitution provides for impeachment but does not demand it in all instances.” Murkowski said. “The response to the president’s behavior is not to disenfranchise nearly 63 million Americans and remove him from the ballot. The House could have pursued censure and not immediately jumped to the remedy of last resort.” Murkowski also blasted President Trump and spread Schiff’s lie that he was advancing his personal interests when he asked Zelensky to do “us” (the country) a favor by...
  • Schiff: If Trump Isn’t Removed He ‘Could Offer Alaska to the Russians in Exchange for Support in the Next Election’

    SCHIFF: "But this has become the President's defense. And yet, this defense proved indefensible. If abuse of power is not impeachable, even though it is clear the Founders considered it the highest of all high crimes and misdemeanors, but if it were not impeachable, then a whole range of utterly unacceptable conduct and the president would now be beyond reach. Trump could offer Alaska to the Russians in exchange for support in the next election or decide to move to Mar-a-Lago permanently and let Jared Kushner run the country, delegating to him the decision whether to go to war. Because...

    This impeachment charade has blown-up in the Democrat and Neocon faces, but it doesn’t end there. Why has Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff and a significant number of California’s representatives spearheaded this sham impeachment of President Trump? Are they using this process to fish for information about other possible indictments sealed in other matters? Something has the Democrat leadership and neocons scared. LINK
  • Senate, Do not Acquit! Instead, Render Null & Void Ab Initio As Defective Impeachment!

    Let's not give Nancy Pelosi and her obviously filled-with-hate, malicious and malevolent band of America-and-constitution-hating thugs the last word Two principles in law nullify, make voidable, and void, a defective and unconstitutional impeachment. As if it never happened! * Ab Initio - ” translates as “from the beginning.” (Initio is a form of the noun initium, meaning “beginning,” which gave rise to such English words as initial, initiate, and initiative.) Ab initio...is also used as an adjective meaning “starting from or based on first principles”...

    More to the point, Donald Trump doesn’t think Democrats can work with him either. In his Super Bowl interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, Trump complained bitterly about the “damage” done to his family and the country in the impeachment and trial. “I’d like to” work with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, Trump told Hannity, but they’re so dishonest and obsessed with winning that he doesn’t think it’s possible.That sounds like exactly what Pelosi and Schumer would say, too: HANNITY: Two hundred and seventy days from now, I guess the ultimate jury –the American people — go to...

    Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the lead House manager in President Trump's Senate trial, said Sunday that there is nothing Democrats could have done differently during the impeachment process. Ahead of the Senate’s likely vote to acquit President Trump on Wednesday, Schiff defended Democrats’ methods and said that he and his colleagues “proved” their case. “Look, there's nothing that I can see that we could have done differently because as the senators have already admitted, we proved our case. We proved our case,” Schiff said on CBS's “Face the Nation.” **SNIP** CBS’s Margaret Brennan asked Schiff if it was...

    Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif, may have been the leading House impeachment manager, but it was Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., who got the last word in a comical moment that quickly went viral on social media. Wrapping up the second day of questioning by the Senate jurors, Chief Justice John Roberts called on the House managers to answer the final question of the evening. "Could you please respond to the answer just given by the president's counsel and provide any other comments the Senate would benefit from hearing before we adjourn for the evening?" Roberts read from the card.

    Rep. Adam Schiff on Thursday delivered a last-minute pitch to have witnesses in President Trump’s Senate impeachment trial. Schiff said that he wants one week devoted to closed-door depositions from witnesses in the trial as senators prepare to vote on the matter Friday. “I will make an offer to opposing counsel, who says this will stretch on indefinitely if you decide to have a single witness,” Schiff, the lead House impeachment manager, told senators. “Let’s cabin the depositions to one week. I think we can. I think we should. I think we must,” the California Democrat added. Trump’s legal team...

    Deputy White House Counsel Patrick Philbin shredded House Intelligence Committee Chairman and lead Impeachment Manager Adam Schiff (D-CA) for his contact with the Ukranian whistleblower, which led to the impeachment inquiry, and eventually the current trial. As it currently sits, we are still in the dark about what role Schiff and his staff played in the whistleblower's inquiry. Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) presented the question on behalf of Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Josh Hawley (R-MO). "Is it true that Shawn Misco and Abigail Grace and the alleged whistleblower were employed by or detailed by the National Security Council in...

    As we reported earlier, House Intel Chair Adam Schiff, one of the House managers for the impeachment trial, may have “mischaracterized” alleged evidence regarding Lev Parnas. Now, on top of that, he pulled the same trick that he did in the House, completely making up the thoughts of President Volodymyr Zelensky to make it sound like he was supporting the Democrats’ case against President Donald Trump. “Imagine the impact on President Zelensky if he were to acknowledge today, “Hell, yes, we felt pressure. You would too. We’re at war with Russia, for crying out loud. Yeah, we felt pressure. We...

    WASHINGTON — Democrats stepped up their calls on Sunday night for John Bolton to testify at President Donald Trump's impeachment trial after an explosive new report alleged that in his unpublished book, the former national security adviser said Trump personally tied Ukraine aid to an investigation of the Bidens — an account that conflicts with the president's. "John Bolton has the evidence," tweeted Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. According to the manuscript, as reported by The New York Times Sunday night, Trump told Bolton that nearly $400 million in aid to Ukraine would not be released until that nation...

    During an interview on MediaBuzz the same day, Grisham said she had not spoken to the president about his tweet but added that she believes Schiff is “obsessed” with Trump. “I think [Trump] means [Schiff] hasn’t yet paid the price with the voters. He hasn’t paid the price yet with the people of this country who see that he's been lying and very obsessed and, quite frankly, it seems like he’s having a little bit of a mental issue when you sit on the floor for hours and hours and hours. He is obsessed with this president and trying to...

    Like week-old meat left in a hot car, the stench of defeat is starting to overpower the swag pens and stifled giggles in the Democrats' impeachment project. Axios has fresh news about how bad it is: Officials in both parties tell me that — barring surprise new information — President Trump is on a glide path to swift acquittal at his Senate impeachment trial, despite a blizzard of evidence bolstering Democrats' accusations. Why it matters: Trump has a decent chance of avoiding witnesses and of losing zero Republican votes on conviction. Think about that: When the news broke, did anyone...

    While presenting the Democrats' case for impeachment on the Senate floor, lead impeachment manager Adam Schiff (D-CA) kept referencing 17 witnesses who testified during the House impeachment inquiry. But there were 18 of them. Schiff and the Democrats are refusing to release the testimony of Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson, and according to Republicans who were present during Atkinson's closed-door testimony, the reason the transcript hasn't been released is because it proves both the whistleblower and House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff did not tell the truth about their contact with each other. Fox News' Maria Bartiromo interviewed Rep. John...

    Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) lamented that "the abrasive style exhibited by the House impeachment managers may have doomed our chances for success. Calling senators 'traitors' if they don't vote to convict Trump is too heavy-handed. Though we might think they are traitors if they don't vote for conviction, saying this out loud is not wise. Similarly, threatening them with jail strikes me as premature. We might eventually get there if we defeat Trump and gain a majority in both houses on election day, but it's foolish to warn our enemies in advance." Meanwhile, Vice-President Joe Biden flatly refused...

    WASHINGTON - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Sunday that the Democratic lawmaker leading the impeachment case against him, Representative Adam Schiff, has “not paid the price, yet” for his actions, a statement Schiff said he viewed as a threat. The vitriol from Trump against Schiff and other Democrats followed three days of their arguments in his impeachment trial before the U.S. Senate on charges he abused the power of his office by pressuring Ukraine to investigate a political rival, and then tried to obstruct an investigation by Congress. “Shifty Adam Schiff is a CORRUPT POLITICIAN, and probably a very...

    Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) says he saw blood drain from Adam Schiff’s face when Trump’s lawyers confronted him about his fake call and transcript. Barrasso was seated in the second row, per the Senate seating chart. Deputy White House Counsel Mike Purpura opened the White House defense of President Donald Trump with video of Adam Schiff’s fake call and transcript he read during the House impeachment proceedings. Mike Purpura played the video immediately after taking the podium on Saturday. And there Schiff was lying his face off for the whole world to see. Schiff completely fabricated transcript of Trump’s phone...

    Video at link, Sen Barrasso segment begins at 5:04 min. On Saturday, President Donald Trump's defense team had the opportunity to poke holes in the House Democrats' impeachment case. One of the topics the defense team instantly ran with was House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff's (D-CA) totally bogus narrative of what took place in Trump's July 25th call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky. According to Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY), when the defense team played the video of Schiff "reading" his version of the call transcript, "the blood drained from Adam Schiff's face." "Today we heard a presentation that was...
