  • BREAKING: Senate Judiciary Committee releases transcripts of Crossfire Hurricane interviews

    01/15/2021 3:17:38 PM PST · by Clinton's a liar · 42 replies
    The Senate Judiciary Committee this evening has released 11 transcripts from their Crossfire Hurricane investigation/interviews. Go to the transcripts directly here: https://www.judiciary.senate.gov/fisa-investigation Chairman (for the meantime) Lindsey Graham issued more oh, so tough statements that rang hollow through the halls of Congress along with the transcripts. Excerpt below and more strongly-worded commentary at the press release link. “Former FBI Director Comey and his deputy Mr. McCabe, through their incompetence and bias, have done a great disservice to the FBI and DOJ, and the senior DOJ leadership who signed off on the work product called the Crossfire Hurricane investigation have created...
  • 4 Reasons McConnell’s Terrible Impeachment Blunder Is Doomed To Failure

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made a terrible mistake Tuesday night when he released word that he was in favor of impeaching President Donald Trump. This mistake goes well beyond a simple political miscalculation. It is the physical manifestation of Washington Republican hubris, wrapped in a fog of frightened groupthink.Announced the eve of the House impeachment vote in the pages of The New York Times, McConnell’s plan reportedly rested on the belief that impeaching the outgoing president “will make it easier to purge Mr. Trump from the party.” Published just after the No. 3 House Republican, Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney,...

  • Markey: We Were Within Minutes of a Capitol ‘Massacre,’ Senate Must Have Full Trial for Trump

    Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “All In” that President Donald Trump will have a full trial in the Senate “for his incitement of an insurrection.” Markey said I was very proud of the way in which the House of Representatives conducted the debate and ultimately cast the correct historical vote to impeach Donald Trump. I think that it’s the only answer that can be given. History must have recorded that there was a second indelible impeachment scarlet letter that was attached to Donald Trump and to his presidency. I think that the excellent work which they did...
  • BREAKING: McConnell Rejects Emergency Session On Impeachment, All But Killing Push To Oust Trump

    The Daily Wire ^ | 1/13/2021 | Tim Pearce
    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has rejected a plan to reconvene the Senate in an emergency session to hold trial over an impeachment article against President Trump in the House. McConnell press secretary Doug Andres confirmed a report that the Kentucky Republican would not sanction such a move on Wednesday. Without the emergency session, the Senate is due back in session on Jan. 19., so McConnell’s decision all but kills a Democrat-led effort to oust Trump from office before his term is up and President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in on Jan. 20. A trial over the impeachment article is...

    Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) announced Tuesday that he will not vote to convict in President Trump's second impeachment trial as the House moves to impeach over Trump's role in last week's riot at the Capitol. Scott echoed claims by other GOP lawmakers that impeaching and removing the president on charges of inciting insurrection would further deepen political divisions in the U.S. "The Democrat-led impeachment talks happening in the House right now fly in direct opposition to what President-elect Joe Biden has been calling for all year," Scott tweeted Tuesday. "An impeachment vote will only lead to more hate and a...

    The Daily Caller ^ | 1/12/2021 | HENRY RODGERS
    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has reportedly told his Republican colleagues that President Donald Trump committed impeachable offenses and that he is fine with Democrats moving forward with impeachment. The New York Times released a report Tuesday, citing anonymous sources, saying that McConnell is pleased Democrats will try to impeach Trump, as it will help separate the Republican party from Trump. Rioters supporting Trump stormed the U.S. capitol Wednesday, committing acts of vandalism and violence and postponing the electoral college certification process, forcing members of Congress to evacuate the building. Democrats in the House of Representatives introduced at least one...

The FBI landed formal indictments on Evans and Rosenberg in the 1988 “Resistance Conspiracy” case for their involvement in the bombing of the Capitol along with five others.

  • My Unpopular opinion: The Georgia Senate runoff was inconsequential; Even If Trump's not President, the Democrats have the votes regardless

    NOQ Report ^ | 01/10/2021 | Ray Fava
    For the last couple of months, there was a debate raging in conservatism about whether to turn out for the Georgia Senate runoffs. I was reticent on this issue until election night, where I made several comments blaming the Republicans for their own defeat. And while I will call out Raphael Warnock for being a blatant heretic of Christianity, this does little to translate for supporting David Perdue, the opponent of the other socialist. I stayed silent because I could see both arguments and both arguments had merit. The Republicans enabled the same voting system that failed for Trump, unironically....

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told his Republican colleagues in the upper chamber that the earliest a second impeachment trial of President Trump would begin is January 20th, the day President-elect Joe Biden will be sworn into office. House Democrats are planning to impeach Trump with a single impeachment article charging him with 'incitement of insurrection' as anger swells over the ransacking of the United States Capitol by a mob inspired by the president. Democrats are demanding that Trump resign or face impeachment while just a handful of Republicans signaled they are willing to consider voting in favor of removing...

    I saw Speech after Speech calling out Trump for bringing on and inciting Violence - by Congress and Slimeball Senators. Let’s take Lindsey Graham. This thing was planned for weeks. Why didn’t he use his airtime and Twitter to tell Peeps not to come to DC? Why didn’t warn us? If Trump was inciting people and had called for an assault, why did no one counter those calls, or warn of the outcome?

Scott Perry, who both submitted a protest of the electors from the commonwealth. While the House went to a debate over the objection, Senate Republicans agreed not to debate the objection before taking a vote.

Ted Cruz (R-TX), Josh Hawley (R-MO), John Kennedy (R-LA), Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS). and Sen. Roger Marshall (R-KS). The objection proceedings that began earlier today were disrupted after President Donald Trump’s supporters overwhelmed Capitol Police to protest the election, storming the Capitol Hill building.
