    With a listing, massively failing impeachment ship to navigate back home, and news focused on Iowa, you'd think House impeachment manager Adam Schiff would want to make his grand exit closing speech with some kind of dignity. No such luck. He went out like a nut instead, throwing out crazy talk and reminding voters that the whole thing was a cooked up plot by anti-Trump lunatics. According to Mairead McArdle at National Review, here's Schiff's final pitch to the Senate, seeking to persuade the very tired senators up there past midnight to do what he wants and vote to oust...
  • Take the vote tonight! Don't give the Trump-hating leftist media any more time to tamper with the jury by printing unsubstantiated/fraudulent 'BOMBSHELL NEW INFO!' headlines!

    Shifty Schiff gave short shrift to his unconstitutional/unauthorized 'impeachment inquiry' (not to mention that he totally deprived the accused his constitutionally guaranteed due process rights) and he brought his incomplete case to the senate (ie, the jury) and expects the senate now to re-open discovery and bring new witnesses and new documents to make HIS case. No thank you! You presented your case to the jury and failed to convince them. You lost. Sit down and shut up! Your time is up. The senate should vote tonight and end this farce without giving the media any more time for jury...

    Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) may very well have just ended the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump. Late Thursday, the Tennessee Republican announced he would be voting "no" on witnesses. "I worked with other senators to make sure that we have the right to ask for more documents and witnesses, but there is no need for more evidence to prove something that has already been proven and that does not meet the United States Constitution’s high bar for an impeachable offense," Alexander said in a statement. His vote will put the nail in the coffin, essentially, for witnesses, even with...

    Lead impeachment manager Adam Schiff (D-CA) kept a straight face on Thursday as he complained on the Senate floor about Republicans using an "unsubstantiated press article" to "smear" members of his staff. Rep. Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, is the same person who used the debunked Steele Dossier for years to promote his Russia Collusion myth in order to smear Trump and the president's allies. Schiff also attempted to smear Rep. Nunes (R-CA), as well as current and former members of Nunes' staff, by including their personal phone records in Mr. Schiff’s 300-page impeachment report. Furthermore, Schiff lied...
  • Pelosi says Trump lawyers have 'disgraced' themselves, suggests disbarment

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday hammered the lawyers leading President Trump's impeachment defense, saying they've trampled on the Constitution while questioning how they've been allowed to keep their jobs. "I don't know how they can retain their lawyer status, in the comments that they're making," Pelosi told reporters in the Capitol. Pelosi was responding largely to comments made Wednesday evening by Alan Dershowitz, a celebrity lawyer on Trump's legal team, who asserted on the Senate floor that presidents cannot be impeached for actions designed to boost their reelections if they believe that retaining a grip on the White...

    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...

    DENVER (CBS4) Sen. Cory Gardner is among the senators questioning President Donald Trumps attorneys and house managers in the impeachment trial. The Republican senator from Colorado said he doesnt believe the Senate needs to hear from more witnesses. I do not believe we need to hear from an 18th witness. I have approached every aspect of this grave constitutional duty with the respect and attention required by law, and have reached this decision after carefully weighing the House managers and defense arguments and closely reviewing the evidence from the House, which included well over 100 hours of testimony from 17...

    Sean Hannity issued a strong warning to Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, Wednesday following reports that he is likely to join Senate Democrats' calls to hear testimony from former National Security Adviser John Bolton in President Trumps impeachment trial. Speaking on "The Sean Hannity Show," the Fox News host was joined by two pollsters to discuss the "anger" Romney has for Trump and how that will play out in his upcoming bid to hold onto his Senate seat. Hannity pointed to a recent poll conducted by the well-known pollster Matt Towery which indicated that 68 percent of Republican respondents in Utah...

    Lev Parnas, who has been federally indicted for fraud, is being held up as a legitimate witness this week by Democrats on Capitol Hill desperately trying to impeach President Trump. Why? Because Parnas, who President Trump called a "groupie" and has been accused of buying his way into Trump world as a grifter, has suddenly changed his opinion. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has taken note and invited Parnas to be his guest in the Senate today. Electronics of any kind are banned from the chamber, which has created an issue.

    Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) released a statement in response to new allegations that involve former National Security Advisor John Bolton's unpublished book about his time at the White House under President Trump. The New York Times reported Bolton's book states Trump tied the Ukraine military aid to the country's officials helping investigate the former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, because he was on the board of gas company Burisma. Multiple Senate Democrats have come out to say Bolton must testify in the ongoing impeachment trial in light of the allegation. Meadows said Democrats are becoming desperate if...

The refrain was: You dont tug on Supermans cape, You dont spit in the wind, You dont pull the mask off the old Long Ranger, And you dont mess around with Jim Right now, yall are thinking, where is ol Col. West going with this? Is this another indicator that he had too many landings on his head as an Army paratrooper? No, quite the contrary, it would have behooved House Democrat impeachment managers Adam Schiff and Jerrold Nadler to have...

    President Trumps legal team on Sunday previewed what will be the meat of their forthcoming defense this week by saying that even if all the allegations Democrats laid out last week were true, they would still fall short of impeachable offenses under the U.S. Constitution. After House Democrats got their chance to make the case against Mr. Trump last week, the focus now turns to the defense as Republicans eye an end to a Senate impeachment trial that could see a vote to acquit the president by the end of the week. Even if the factual allegations are true ...

    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...

    Video at link. After Trump's legal team quickly and efficiently destroyed the Democrat's so-called impeachment case on Saturday, CNN Chief Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin was reduced to complaining about the whiteness of the president's legal defenders. Toobin began his in-depth legal analysis by stating, "White House and white people." "This is a lesson in the diversity of the two parties," Toobin declared. "You look at the House managers. It was almost evenly divided between men and women. You had two African Americans. You had a Hispanic. It was all white men today." The chief legal analyst admitted that there are...

    Pat Cipollone (Screenshot) Despite talking for 24 hours in the Senate impeachment trial, Democrats failed to mention key evidence, because they know facts aren’t on the side, President Donald Trump defense attorney said in opening statements Saturday as Trump’s defense began arguments. Cipollone promised that Trump’s attorneys would present the evidence that Democrats omitted, and said that those watching should ask: “Why am I just hearing about this now, after 24 hours of sitting through arguments?”: “The fact that they came here, for 24 hours, and hid evidence from you, is further evidence that they don’t really believe in...

    Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) knocked Republicans on Thursday, accusing them of trying to use "so-called outrages" and "shiny objects" as distractions to avoid discussing potential impeachment witnesses. "I think the case for witnesses and documents is so self-evident that many of my Republican colleagues are desperate to talk about anything else, they are so eager to change [the] conversation," Schumer said. Schumer said that Republicans were trying to bring up things "irrelevant to a fair trial." "They try to turn you, the press and the American people away to look at something else that has nothing to do...

    After all his claims that turned out to be “exactly wrong,” how can senators be expected to believe Rep. Adam Schiff’s (D-Calif.) claims during the Senate impeachment trials, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) asked Wednesday. Rep. Jordan tweeted video of his comments to reporters following Impeachment Manager Schiff’s two-plus hours of allegations against President Donald Trump at the trial: Schiff: 1. "More than circumstantial evidence" of collusion 2. Nunes memo was false 3. FISA process was fine 4. The "Whistleblower" would testify 5. "We haven't spoken... with the 'Whistleblower'" 6. Parodied @POTUS' call 7. "Mr. Z" referred to Zelensky But today...

    President Trumps visit to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland this week was a bigger triumph than anyone could possibly have imagined a year ago. First, the counter-staging of President Trump landing at Davos while the Senate began the trial over his phony impeachment was a Reagan-quality move. Television is 80 percent visual. People standing around in the Senate make for boring television. Even people paid to watch the proceedings have complained about how boring they are. On the other hand, Air Force One landing in Switzerland and then Marine One flying into Davos makes for great...
