Nunes Writes Scathing Letter to Schiff for Not Consulting With Him Before Sending Investigative Report to Judiciary Committee

December 9, 2019

FoxNews.com has posted the following exclusive report…

House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes blasted committee Chairman Adam Schiff for what he called an “alarming” and “blatant disregard” for the rules governing the House impeachment inquiry against President Trump, saying Schiff transmitted his investigative findings to the Judiciary Committee for the next phase in the proceedings without consulting him.

Fox News exclusively obtained the letter Nunes, R-Calif., sent to Schiff, D-Calif., on Sunday night. In the letter dated Friday, Nunes wrote that Schiff chose not to consult with him so that he could meet a “bogus” deadline for impeaching the president. The GOP congressman also accused the Democrat of having a “vendetta” against the president.

“I write in objection to your December 6, 2019 transfer of additional records and other materials relating to the Democrats’ partisan impeachment inquiry to the House Committee on the Judiciary,” Nunes wrote.

He went on to cite the rules governing the impeachment inquiry, passed in the House in October, which stated that “the chair of the Permanent Select Committee or the chair of any other committee having custody of records or other materials relating to the inquiry referenced in the first section of this resolution is authorized, in consultation with the ranking minority member, to transfer such records or materials to the Committee on the Judiciary.”

“As the Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee, I received no consultation prior to the transfer of materials, in violation of H. Res. 660,” Nunes wrote. “Accordingly, I expect that you immediately provide me a full accounting of documents that were provided to the Committee on the Judiciary.”

“Your consistent and blatant disregard for the rules is alarming,” Nunes continued. “I can see no reason for you to continue to ignore these rules, which the Democratic majority put in place, other than to meet a bogus deadline of impeaching the President by Christmas.”

He added: “I urge you to put an immediate end to your vendetta against the President, stop your constant rule breaking, and begin treating this Committee and its oversight responsibilities with the seriousness they deserve.”

Last week, the Intelligence Committee voted to adopt and issue a scathing report on its findings from its impeachment inquiry. Democrats on the panel asserted that their inquiry “uncovered a months-long effort by President Trump to use the powers of his office to solicit foreign interference on his behalf in the 2020 election.”

In their impeachment inquiry, the committee conducted extensive interviews with witnesses connected to the Trump administration’s relationship with Ukraine, after an anonymous whistleblower filed a complaint alleging that during a July 25 phone call, Trump tried to pressure Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter, as well as issues related to the 2016 presidential election.

The president’s request came after millions in U.S. military aid to Ukraine had been frozen, which Democrats and witnesses have claimed showed a “quid pro quo” arrangement. Trump repeatedly has denied any wrongdoing.

The Democrats’ report claimed that Trump withheld nearly $391 million in military aid from Ukraine, conditioning its delivery as well as a White House visit with Zelensky on a public announcement that Zelensky was conducting the investigations. It also accused Trump of obstruction of justice for instructing witnesses not to comply with congressional subpoenas.

Nunes took issue with the issuance of the report to the Judiciary Committee, led by Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., without consulting with him, as well as the transmission of additional underlying investigative material, according to an aide familiar with the matter. Also part of the committee’s report were Nunes’ phone records, which Schiff subpoenaed and released in connection with the impeachment inquiry.

Rep. Nunes was exactly right for calling Shifty Schiff out for his actions…not that it will do any good.

The Democrats will be the majority in the House of Representatives until the Republicans gain back control in the 2020 Presidential Elections.

For all of their promises the Democrats made during the 2018 Midterm Elections Campaign to suburban housewives that they would “work on the issues which mattered most to Americans”, all they have worked on is trying to undo the results of the 2016 Presidential Election.

And, they have torn up the spirit and legacy of the Constitution and the men who worked so hard to write it.

The Democrats have quite literally made up the rules for their partisan “Impeachment Inquiry” as they went along, leaving scorched earth in their wake like a lynch mob looking for someone to string up from the nearest tree branch.

Nobody within the House of Representatives will punish Rep. Schiff for his actions. So, it is a good thing that Nunes is taking legal action against him for publishing his phone records.

The optimist in me believes that, in their haste, Nadler and the rest of the Dems on the Judiciary Committee are going to write up such outlandish Articles for Impeachment that Mitch McConnell and the rest of the Senate Republicans are going to have to stifle their own laughter before simply throwing it out or allowing a trial during which Schiff and the Bidens will experience questioning which will make a bikini wax of Joe Biden’s hairy now-famous hairy legs seem less painful in comparison.

In the Democrats’ minds, I am sure that they want to wrap this up as quickly as possible so as not to interfere with their Primary Candidates’ schedules who are campaigning to be their Presidential Candidate.

Either that, or they realize that they have no case for Impeaching the President at all and are about to be made to look very foolish to the entire world and they want to get it over with as quickly as possible.

Either way, they are still going to look like a bunch of self-serving, vengeful, petulant, didactic idiots.

Our Founding Fathers were pretty smart, weren’t they?

Desperate Dems Reference Mueller Report During Impeachment Hearing, May Use it in Articles of Impeachment

December 5, 2019

04dc-impeach-facebookJumbo

The Democrats are apparently going to try to recycle a failed investigation.

FoxNews.com reports that

Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee appeared to lay the groundwork Wednesday for including the findings from former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian meddling in the 2016 election in the ongoing impeachment inquiry into President Trump.

In his opening statement, House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., linked Russian interference during the 2016 presidential election with the allegations that Trump asked the Ukrainian president earlier this year to investigate a political rival in the 2020 election.

“President Trump welcomed foreign interference in the 2016 election, he demanded it for the 2020 election,” Nadler said. “In both cases, he got caught and, in both cases, he did everything in power to prevent the American people from learning about his conduct.”

Several of the Democratic legal experts referenced the Mueller report during their testimony.

One witness on Wednesday, University of North Carolina law professor Michael Gerhardt, told lawmakers in his opening statement, “The Mueller Report found at least five instances of the president’s obstruction of the Justice Department’s criminal investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion between the president’s campaign and Russia.”

He added, “Taken either individually or collectively, these instances are strong evidence of criminal obstruction of justice.”

While Trump and Republicans have claimed that Mueller’s report exonerated him of any wrongdoing and should be put to rest, some Democrats have suggested recently that the report’s findings regarding obstruction of justice mean it should be included in any articles of impeachment.

“Obstruction of justice, I think, is too clear not to include” House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn, D-S.C., said Tuesday in an interview with McClatchy.

Adding the findings from the Mueller report to any possible articles of impeachment is a controversial matter within the Democratic Party, with more liberal Democrats pushing to have the report included. More centrist and moderate Democrats, however, prefer to stick with the Ukraine matter as a simpler narrative that Americans understand.

In the nearly 500 page report which was released to the public in April, Mueller and his team found that Russia worked “in sweeping and systematic fashion” to influence the 2016 elections and that the Trump campaign welcomed Moscow’s maneuvers, but that there was insufficient evidence to prove that the campaign ever “coordinated or conspired with the Russian government in its election-interference activities.”

Mueller also decided not to pass judgment on whether Trump obstructed justice during the investigation and left it up to Congress to decide whether the president committed an impeachable offense.

During its hearings in the impeachment inquiry, the House Intelligence Committee did not focus on the Mueller report – instead honing in on whether Trump abused his office as he pressed Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to open investigations into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son’s business dealings in the country. At the time, Trump was withholding $400 million in military aid, jeopardizing key support as Ukraine faced an aggressive Russia at its border.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has said no decision has been made on whether there will be a House vote on impeaching Trump.

The Judiciary panel responsible for drafting articles of impeachment convened as Trump’s team was fanning out across Capitol Hill. Vice President Mike Pence met behind closed doors with House Republicans, and Senate Republicans were to huddle with the White House counsel as GOP lawmakers stand with the president.

The Democrats’ obsession with undoing the results of the 2016 Presidential Election has caused them to lose their last bit of sanity.

After Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report established that President Trump and his Campaign Staff did not collude with the Russians and that there was insufficient evidence to charge him with any sort of obstruction, the House Democrats have decided that they will attempt to salvage that report in order to impeach the President.

Let’s face it: yesterday’s day-long lecture by the Democrats’ “expert witnesses”, two snobbish Liberal Elites from the Halls of Academia was as big of a joke as doddering old man Mueller’s was on July 24th of this year.

What average Americans are going to remember is that a snobbish female professor made fun of a 13-year old boy’s name simply because she hated his father, who happened to be the President of the United States of America.

By trying to use a Special Counsel’s failed investigation to further a strictly partisan impeachment of a President who has turns America’s Economy around, the Far Left Democratic Party is proving that they are just as tone deaf as they were in the months before the 2016 Presidential Election.

The use of those snobbish professors as “expert witnesses” when they were not even present for the phone call in question was an example of the didactic behavior which the Democrats have become known for.

The “Smartest People in the Room” believe that Americans are gullible.

Their oversized egos have blinded them to the fact that average Americans between the coasts are bot buying their BS.

We know that they are desperate to get President Trump out of office because all of their potential Presidential Candidates are a bunch of Far Left Losers who stink on ice.

Nancy Pelosi is stuck between a rock and a hard place.

If she calls for an Impeachment Vote before Congeress leaves for the holidays, she may not get it.

And, even if she does, President Trump has already said that he wants a Senate Trial.

The reason for that is not only will he win but the widespread Democratic corruption which occurred under President Barack Hussein Obama will be brought up, including the Bidens and Burisma.

The Democrats are in a lose-lose situation.

Don’t let their bluster fool you.

Things are about to get interesting.

WaPo: Desperate House Dems Soliciting Reports of Possible Impeachable Offenses to Expand Articles of Impeachment

December 3, 2019

05-blocker-dt-600

Without impeachment, that’s what they are looking at, a 7-2 Supreme Court by 2024, Roe v. Wade threatened, climate change in ruins, the borders closed, a wounded Democrat voter base, much of it officially in insane asylums by that time. Oh, and how about the destruction of the traditional black constituency?

Folks, they are scared, they are in fear like you can’t imagine. They will never portray this on TV and the Drive-Bys will never share it, but they are, because this is what Donald Trump’s reelection means to them. So without impeachment they’re left with Fauxcahontas, Crazy Bernie, Joe Biden sucking fingers if anybody dares to get close to him on a debate stage, screeching about an agenda that nobody wants.

It’s impeachment or bust now. They gotta keep women away from Biden. They gotta keep kids away from Biden. They gotta keep swimming pools away from Biden. Biden talks about how men loved watching his leg hair turn blond in the sun in the pool. Then there’s a picture of him sucking on his wife’s finger out there. Whew. They’re looking at all that or impeach. That’s why they’re scared out of their gourds, folks. And they’re angry because they have failed and it’s even gotten to this point now. – Rush Limbaugh, 12/2/19

According to The Washington Post,

House Democrats are debating whether to expand articles of impeachment to include charges beyond abuse of power in the Ukraine controversy, setting up a potential internal clash as the party races to impeach President Trump by Christmastime.

Members of the House Judiciary Committee and other more liberal-minded lawmakers and congressional aides have been privately discussing the possibility of drafting articles that include obstruction of justice or other “high crimes” they believe are clearly outlined in special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s report — or allegations that Trump has used his office to benefit his bottom line.

The idea, however, is running into resistance from some moderate Democrats wary of impeachment blowback in their GOP-leaning districts, as well as Democratic leaders who sought to keep impeachment narrowly focused on allegations that Trump pressured Ukraine to investigate his political rivals, according to officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity to talk freely.

The debate is expected to play out in leadership and caucus meetings this week, as the House Intelligence Committee prepares to hand the impeachment inquiry to the House Judiciary Committee. The Intelligence Committee is scheduled to vote Tuesday night on its final report on Ukraine, allowing Judiciary to then work on writing articles of impeachment based on that document.

But the Judiciary Committee also has asked other investigative panels to send any findings of Trump-related misdeeds that they believe are impeachable. And many of the committee members are hoping articles will refer to and cite their own months-long investigation into the Mueller report, which described 10 possible instances of obstruction by the president.

“One crime of these sorts is enough, but when you have a pattern, it is even stronger,” said Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), a House Judiciary Committee member and co-chairman of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. She said there is a strong case to be made for citing Mueller’s report in impeachment articles but cautioned that no decision has been made. “If you show that this is not only real in what’s happening with Ukraine, but it’s the exact same pattern that Mueller documented . . . to me, that just strengthens the case.”

The discussions heated up Monday as Trump lashed out at impeachment investigators as he left Washington for a NATO meeting in London, then aboard Air Force One promptly took to his favorite social media platform — Twitter — to declare “case over.” Trump inaccurately portrayed fresh comments by Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky as proof that impeachment was unnecessary. Although Zelensky denied being engaged in a “quid pro quo,” he also questioned the fairness of Trump’s decision to freeze nearly $400 million in congressionally appropriated military aid when his country was at war with Russia.

“[Y]ou have to understand. We’re at war,” Zelensky said. “If you’re our strategic partner, then you can’t go blocking anything for us. I think that’s just about fairness. It’s not about a quid pro quo. It just goes without saying.”

Meanwhile, on Capitol Hill, sniping between Democrats and Republicans over the impeachment process escalated after the holiday break. Republicans issued a “prebuttal” of the Intelligence Committee report that is expected to lay out how Trump abused his power, refusing to acknowledge that Trump did anything wrong with Ukraine.

In a 123-page document, GOP investigators assert that Democrats failed to make the case that Trump committed impeachable high crimes and misdemeanors by withholding military aid and a highly sought-after White House meeting to compel Ukraine to launch investigations into his political rivals. Nor, the Republicans say, do Democrats have a basis for impeachment in Trump’s decision to spurn House document requests and witness subpoenas pertaining to Trump’s Ukraine dealings.

Instead, the GOP document contends, the impeachment effort is “an orchestrated campaign to upend our political system” — one “based on the accusations and assumptions of unelected bureaucrats who disagreed with President Trump’s policy initiatives and processes.”

“The evidence presented does not prove any of these Democrat allegations, and none of the Democrats’ witnesses testified to having evidence of bribery, extortion, or any high crime or misdemeanor,” the GOP said.

Now, let me get this straight.

The Democrats want to reinterpret Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report which exonerated President Trump and which led to Mueller’s embarrassing appearance before Congress during which Mueller came off as a doddering old man.

THIS is the “hard evidence” through which they want to impeach the president?

Are you kidding me?

These wannabe Marxists are making things up as they go along.

They are presuming President Trump to be guilty and trying to force him to prove himself innocent of their fictional charges against him.

You cannot impeach a President of the United States simply because you are a bunch of whiny little babies still having a temper tantrum over him winning the Presidency over your insufferable loser of a candidate.

Yesterday, President Trump tweeted…

Even if the President was only trolling the Radical left, he makes a point.

Poll after poll show that the majority of Americans are against impeaching the President who has turned around our nation’s economy.

Unlike the Far Left idiots now running the Democratic Party, average Americans take pride in a prosperous America.

If such an action can be done, I believe that President Trump is within his rights as an American Citizen to take this Soviet-style Tribunal which the Dems are calling an “Impeachment Inquiry” to the Highest Court in the Land over grounds that he is being denied Due Process in a Political Witch Hunt.

The Democrats are intentionally trying to nullify the votes of Americans who voted the 45th President into office while trying to harm a sitting President in order to win the 2020 President Election.

There is nothing noble about the actions of the Far Left Democrats which have brought us to this point.

In fact, the Democrats have engaged in seditious treason against President Donald J. Trump since before he took the Oath of Office.

If going before the Supreme Court is what it takes to protect our Sovereign Country from a not-so-silent coup attempt, then so be it.

Let’s roll, Mr. President.

Nadler Schedules Hearings for Week Trump is at NATO Meeting…White House Lawyer Sends Blistering Letter in Return

December 2, 2019

trump-nadler-030519

We just held two weeks of hearings, after a month of closed door depositions—all of which revealed no evidence to support impeachment—and now we’re holding more hearings. This is fundamentally unserious. – Rep. Mark Meadows on Twitter

FoxNews.com reports that

The White House announced in a fiery letter Sunday night that President Trump and his lawyers won’t participate in the House Judiciary Committee’s first impeachment hearing scheduled for Wednesday — even accusing the panel’s Democratic chairman, Jerry Nadler, of “purposely” scheduling the proceedings when Trump would be attending the NATO Leaders’ Meeting in London.

The five-page letter came as the Democratic majority on the House Intelligence Committee was preparing to approve a report on Tuesday that will outline possible charges of bribery or “high crimes and misdemeanors,” the constitutional standard for impeachment. After receiving the report, the Judiciary Committee would prepare actual charges.

“This baseless and highly partisan inquiry violates all past historical precedent, basic due process rights, and fundamental fairness,” wrote White House counsel Pat Cipollone, continuing the West Wing’s attack on the procedural form of the impeachment proceedings. Cipollone said Nadler provided only “vague” details about the hearing, and that unnamed academics — and not “fact witnesses” — would apparently be attending.

“When the Judiciary Committee scheduled a similar hearing during the Clinton impeachment process, it allowed those questioning the witnesses two-and-a-half weeks’ notice to prepare, and it scheduled the hearing on a date suggested by the president’s attorneys,” Cipollone wrote. “Today, by contrast, you have afforded the president no scheduling input, no meaningful information and so little time to prepare that you have effectively denied the administration a fair opportunity to participate.”

Cipollone’s letter made clear that his response applied only to the Wednesday hearing, at least for now. Cipollone demanded more information from Democrats on how they intended to conduct further hearings before Trump would decide whether to participate in those hearings, amid sagging national support for Democrats’ probe.

Specifically, Cipollone demanded to know whether Republicans would be able to cross-examine and call defense witnesses, as well as whether Republicans could call “fact witnesses” — including House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. (AP)
House-passed rules provide the president and his attorneys the right to cross-examine witnesses and review evidence before the committee, but little ability to bring forward witnesses of their own.

“If [Schiff] chooses not to (testify), then I really question his veracity in what he’s putting in his report,” said Rep. Doug Collins, the top Republican on the Judiciary Committee. “It’s easy to hide behind a report,” Collins added. “But it’s going to be another thing to actually get up and have to answer questions.”

Schiff has come under scrutiny from Republicans, in part because of his overtly partisan comments and his previous claim in a televised interview that “we have not spoken directly with the whistleblower.” A Schiff spokesperson later narrowed that claim in October, telling Fox News that Schiff himself “does not know the identity of the whistleblower, and has not met with or spoken with the whistleblower or their counsel” for any reason.

An aide to Schiff insisted that when Schiff mentioned “we” had not spoken to the whistleblower, he was referring to members of the full House intelligence committee, rather than staff. NBC National Security reporter Ken Dilanian flagged Schiff’s explanation as “deceptive” late Wednesday, and Schiff acknowledged he “should have been more clear” concerning whistleblower contacts.

The panel of constitutional scholars who will testify on Wednesday will weigh in on the question of whether the president committed an impeachable offense by allegedly withholding of military aid to Ukraine until it investigated former Vice President Joe Biden.

During impeachment hearings last month, a career State Department official testified that in January or February 2015, he “became aware that [Joe Biden’s son] Hunter Biden was on the board” of Ukrainian company Burisma Holdings while his father Joe Biden was overseeing Ukraine policy as vice president — and that he raised concerns about potential conflicts of interest at the time. Joe Biden has openly bragged about pressuring Ukraine to fire its top prosecutor while he was investigating Burisma, by threatening to withhold critical U.S. aid.

Republicans had urged President Trump not to attend the Democrats’ hearings, arguing that his presence would validate a process they have repeatedly derided as partisan. In his letter, Cipollone repeatedly derided what he called Democrats’ “fundamentally unfair” process.

“Inviting the Administration now to participate in an after-the-fact constitutional law seminar — with yet-to-be-named witnesses — only demonstrates further the countless procedural deficiencies that have infected this inquiry from its inception and shows the lack of seriousness with which you are undertaking these proceedings,” Cipollone wrote.

Nadler had written the president last week announcing a hearing for Dec. 4 at 10 a.m., and notified him of the committee’s intentions to provide him with “certain privileges” while they consider “whether to recommend articles of impeachment to the full House.” Nadler also extended an invitation to the president, asking whether “you and your counsel plan to attend the hearing or make a request to question the witness panel.”

With polls showing support for impeachment flagging, Democrats were aiming for a final House vote by Christmas, which would set the stage for a likely Senate trial in January. Surveys have shown that independents are souring on the idea of impeaching and removing Trump from office, including in critical battleground states like Wisconsin, even as House Democrats aggressively presented their focus-group-tested “bribery” case against the president over the past two weeks.
“I do believe that all evidence certainly will be included in that report so the Judiciary Committee can make the necessary decisions that they need to,” said Rep. Val Demings, D-Fla., a member of both the Intelligence and Judiciary committees.

She said Democrats had not yet finalized witnesses for the upcoming Judiciary hearings and were waiting to hear back from Trump on his plans to present a defense.

“If he has not done anything wrong, we’re certainly anxious to hear his explanation of that,” Demings said.

The House Judiciary’s impeachment hearings will follow last month’s hearings by the House Intelligence Committee, which heard from 12 witnesses during five days of testimony.

Trump has previously suggested that he might be willing to offer written testimony under certain conditions, though aides suggested they did not anticipate Democrats would ever agree to them.

“The Democrats are holding the most ridiculous Impeachment hearings in history. Read the Transcripts, NOTHING was done or said wrong!” Trump tweeted Saturday.

Late Sunday, Trump tweeted a link to a Fox News opinion piece written by legal analyst Gregg Jarrett, and quoted the piece as saying the president had done “nothing impeachable.”

Gregg Jarrett is exactly right.

So, why is Rep. Jerry Nadler continuing the Democrats’ Dog and Pony Show which they euphemistically call an “Impeachment Inquiry”?

The answer is simple. Rep. Jerry Nadler is pursuing a vendetta against President Donald J. Trump.

Back on April 9th of this year, FoxNews.com posted about this decades-old dust-up…

“Congressman Jerry Nadler fought me for years on a very large development I built on the West Side of Manhattan. He wanted a Rail Yard built underneath the development or even better, to stop the job. He didn’t get either & the development became VERY successful,” Trump tweeted Tuesday.

“Nevertheless, I got along very well with Jerry during the zoning and building process. Then I changed course (slightly), became President, and now I am dealing with Congressman Nadler again. Some things never end, but hopefully it will all go well for everyone. Only time will tell!” he added.

The president’s tweets come after The Washington Post reported on the history of their feud. The Post reported that it began in 1985, when Nadler was a New York State assemblyman. The Post reported that Trump, at the time, purchased property in Nadler’s district and wanted to build a development, which he reportedly wanted to call “Television City.” But Nadler wanted the property, which was a former railroad yard, to be upgraded instead. Nadler reportedly blocked Trump from public funds and mortgage insurance.

Trump ultimately began construction on the property and worked to develop residential buildings, but in 2005, after construction delays and pushback from lawmakers, Trump reportedly sold the property for $1.8 billion.

Nadler and the rest of the House Democrats are allowing their least experienced members, “The Squad” and the rest of the wannabe Marxists to control their actions.

The president is under no obligation to attend these partisan hearings.

The House of Representatives was established by our Founding Fathers to be like the British House of Commons, that is, the LOWER House of Congress with the Senate being patterned after the House of Lords, or, the UPPER House.

The president does not answer to Congress. He can act on his own accord concerning matters of national security and foreign policy. And, the Judicial Branch has the ability to overturn legislation passed by Congress.

So, basically, the White House’s letter to Congress told them to go take a long walk on a short pier.

In their horrible grief over the disappointing outcomes of both the 2016 President Election and the Special Counsel’s Investigation, the Democratic Party, as evidenced by these Soviet-style Tribunals which they have been holding, has been experiencing a psychotic break for quite a while now.

They cannot and will not accept the reality in front of them.

With the majority of Americans still saying that they do not want President Trump to be impeached, the Democrats evidently are determined to destroy their party’s chance of winning the 2020 Presidential Election, if they even have one.

To be truthful, I believe that the chance of building a snowman in hell has better odds that the out-of-control Marxist Democrats have of winning the Presidency in 2020.

What are Nadler and the rest of the Democrats going to do when IG Horowitz’ and Attorney General Barr’s investigations both report the nefarious details of a silent coup to destroy both the Trump Presidential Campaign and his Presidency?

And, what happens when they lose control of the House of Representatives while Trump gets reelected in 2020?

Stay tuned, Deplorables.

..And, get your popcorn ready.

The Democrat Meltdown should be glorious.

Liberals Lose Their Minds Over Trump’s “Rocky” Tweet…Just as He Planned

November 29, 2019

EKZBVC5XkAAuERh

FoxNews.com reported on Wednesday that

President Trump seemed to declare himself a heavyweight champion in politics on Wednesday, tweeting out a picture of his face superimposed onto one of actor Sylvester Stallone as Rocky.

The tweet, which didn’t include any context, came after polling showed voters souring on impeachment and as House Democrats prepare another round of hearings in the ongoing impeachment inquiry. On Tuesday, Trump denounced Democrats’ inquiry to a packed rally in Florida.

“First it was the Russia hoax,” Trump said. “And now the same maniacs are pushing the deranged … impeachment” narrative.

For the past few months, Trump has been fending off accusations that he sought to influence the 2020 election by pressuring Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden.

The president and Republicans have denied any wrongdoing and repeatedly portrayed Trump as the victim of a partisan attempt to overturn the 2016 election.

“It is a Democrat Scam that is going nowhere but, future Presidents should in no way be compromised. What has happened to me should never happen to another President!” Trump tweeted Tuesday.

Trump also tweeted a clip of Fox News host Pete Hegseth reporting on the massive crowd size of Tuesday night’s rally in Florida. During interviews with Hegseth, rally attendees expressed their support for the president.

“I come from a family of Democrats and I just can’t take the swamp anymore,” one attendee said. Another said that he grew up as a Democrat but became a “staunch supporter of Trump.”

On Twitter, Trump faced a wave of mockery for posting a photo of his face on Rocky’s body. Some knocked his physical appearance, suggesting that he was nowhere near the shape that Rocky was. It also comes as Trump is dismissing rumors he had a health scare after a recent visit to Walter Reed Medical Center.

The photo also seemed to indicate Trump’s mood going into the second round of impeachment hearings, led by the House Judiciary Committee.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., the committee’s chair, sent a letter to Trump, apparently welcoming a challenge for the first hearing, which is scheduled for Dec. 4.

In his invitation to the president, he asked whether “you and your counsel plan to attend the hearing or make a request to question the witness panel.”

We live in a “brave new world”, of that there is no doubt.

The vast majority of Americans own cellphones…and are on Twitter.

Yes, the 280 characters contained in a “Tweet” are definitely not the most eloquent way for a President to be communicating with the American Public, but they are clear, concise, and immediate.

There is no room for “weasel words” in a “Tweet”, unlike the addresses of the individual who occupied the Oval Office before President Trump.

Heck, Obama gave long speeches just so he could refer to himself ad infinitum in them.

Unfortunately, President-elect Trump will never be able to please the Main Stream Media or their masters in the Democratic Party Hierarchy.

Nor should he have to.

The Presidency of the United States of America is the most important leadership position on the Face of God’s Green Earth.

Both the Democrats and the Main Stream Media know that.

The problem is, they are all still having a conniption fit (Southern colloquialism for being upset over something to the point insanity) over the election of Donald J. Trump as the next President by us rubes here in Flyover Country.

In fact, they are so upset that they have retaliated by launching an investigation into non-existent “Russian Collusion” which failed spectacularly followed by an ongoing “Impeachment Inquiry” which is also doomed to failure.

The Democrats do not just want control of the White House…they want control of our very lives.

That is why they continue to try to bring down Trump.

They have been behaving for three years like spoiled little brats who need a timeout.

And, judging from the TV Ratings of the live coverage of “Impeachment Inquiry” and the rapidly dwindling r4eadership of Liberal Newspapers and Magazines, Americans are giving them one.

Meanwhile, POTUS is turning up the heat on them via his prolific use of Twitter and blunt, to-the-point evisceration of those who wish him to fail.

So, was this picture of him as “Rocky Balboa” just “tacky teasing” or is it a “terrific tactic”?

Actually, I believe that it is a bit of both.

When President Trump posts a tweet like this he communicates message which “Deplorables” in a great bit of irony, completely understand while going over the head of the out-of-touch “Smartest people in the room in the Beltway and on the Left Coast.

The ongoing Liberal reaction of both anger and false “concern” about the 45th President’s prolific use of Twitter reminds me of a strategy or “tactic” which can be seen in the 1982 movie, “Rocky III’, in a scene in which Rocky “The Italian Stallion” Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) is fighting his heart out in the late stages of a “revenge” match against the animalistic Clubber Lang (Mr. T).

Beaten until he seemingly cannot stand anymore, Rocky starts teasing Clubber to hit him with his best shot. Clubber hits him time and again, while a seemingly-unfazed Rocky taunts him, saying, “You ain’t so bad”.

Eventually Clubber wears himself out, giving Rocky the opportunity to beat the living daylights out of him, leaving Clubber lying in the middle of the ring.

By teasing his opponent into a blinding rage, Rocky was able to accomplish his goal of winning back the World Heavyweight Championship.

By teasing the Democrat Party and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, in a similar fashion, President Trump has made them vulnerable, just as Rocky made Clubber, exposing their arrogance and intolerance.

And, as everyone now knows, he used this bit of misdirection along with spreading phony information that he was out playing golf to keep the Main Stream Media from knowing that he was on his way to Afghanistan to spend Thanksgiving with our Brightest and Best.

President Trump is not a professional politicians. He thinks like an average American, saying and tweeting what is on his mind.

Tacky teasing? Most definitely.

Terrific tactic? Most assuredly.

Isn’t Modern Technology wonderful?

Rep. Lee Zeldin: “Adam Schiff Really Does Think That Many Americans Are Idiots”

FoxNews .com reports that

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., is treating the American public like “idiots” by relying on hearsay and circumstantial evidence to impeach President Trump, Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., said Sunday on “America’s News Headquarters.”

“The people who are pushing for impeachment have been pushing for impeachment since Donald Trump was elected — since he was getting sworn into office,” Zeldin told Fox News’ Eric Shawn. “Adam Schiff really does think that many Americans are idiots.

“If you remember March 22nd, 2017, he goes on another network, and he says that he has more than circumstantial evidence that President Trump colluded with the Russians. This is evidence that he hasn’t yet produced, [that] I haven’t seen, [former Special Counsel Robert] Mueller couldn’t find,” he continued. “He made up what he called a parody version of the [July 25] call transcript, but he only said that after he got called out.”

Schiff had attempted to clarify in September, “Of course, the president never said, ‘If you don’t understand me, I’m going to say it seven more times.’ My point is, that’s the message that the Ukraine president was receiving in not so many words.”

Zeldin also challenged Schiff for failing to disclose that his congressional team met in private with the whistleblower who sparked the impeachment inquiry. The Republican also said the facts of the case remained on the president’s side.

“It turns out that [Schiff’s] team was in contact with the whistleblower before this person had even filed the whistleblower complaint or had even hired an attorney,” he said.

“He’s made claims during his opening statements and his closing statements — trying to write the world’s greatest parody… trying to connect dots that aren’t actually connected,” Zeldin added.

“He’ll say something’s a firsthand truth that shouldn’t be doubted and then you dig deeper and you realize it’s actually Ambassador [William] Taylor telling us that, Tim Morrison told him that [Amb. Gordon] Sondland told Morrison — the president told Sondland, give me a break… The facts are on the president’s side.”

He also said Congress should be passing the United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement, “but instead, he is trying to pay off the people who put the gavel in his hand.”

Schiff commented on the Democrats’ impeachment push during an interview earlier Sunday with CNN’s “State of the Union,” and said despite an “ironclad” case against the president, he couldn’t say if his party will impeach Trump or not.

“If the facts aren’t contested and your committee is writing up the report and you don’t, at least as of now, have any scheduled witnesses or depositions — do you think President Trump should be impeached?” host Jake Tapper asked.

“I want to discuss this with my constituents and my colleagues before I make a final judgment on it,” Schiff replied. “But, there are a couple of really important things we need to think about.”

Uh huh.

Rep. Zeldin is exactly right.

Just as they did in the 2016 Presidential Campaign, the Democrats have underestimated the American People and what we will tolerate.

Living in their Beltway Bubble, the Democratic Hierarchy continue to view those of us living between the coasts in “Flyover Country” as inbred simpletons who should bow and scape before them.

One would have thought that they would have learned their lesson when American Businessman and Entrepreneur Donald J. Trump beat their Chosen One, Hillary Clinton, to become the first Citizen Statesman to win the Presidency in decades.

But, no.

The Democratic Party’s ensuing national Temper tantrum over Trump’s victory actually made them double down on their arrogant out-f-touch view of average Americans living between the coasts.

The proof of what I’m saying is has been seen by millions of Americans for almost three years, as the Democrats have tried every falsehood they could think of to ruin President Trump and his entire family from a Russian Collusion Delusion to a Soviet-style Tribunal based on a fictional retelling of an actual phone call with the only “evidence” being the “testimonies” of arrogant bureaucrats.

As Rep. Zeldin said, the Democrats have been wanting to impeach Trump since his election, and their hatred of him has grown exponentially with each goal he has achieved since taking office.

The reason Rep. Schiff will not commit to impeaching Trump after promising that he and his fellow House Democrats would, is that the Dems’ internal polling shows that an overwhelming majority of Americans oppose impeaching President Trump. And, on top of that, the ratings for his 2-week Pubic Hearings were extremely low.

In other words, Americans are not buying the Democrats’ B.S.

Americans vote with their wallets.

Trump’s policies have delivered lower taxes and a booming economy.

The Democrats are promising higher taxes and Marxism.

Which would you choose?

Giuliani About Biden: “I Don’t Care What He’s Saying. He’s Lying. He’s Been Lying All His Life.”

November 24, 2019

Screen-Shot-2019-11-23-at-12.34.41-PM-e1574530597605 (2)

 

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump’s personal attorney and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani said Saturday that he is not afraid of being indicted and that he has absolutely no business interest in Ukraine.

Appearing on “America’s News HQ” with host Ed Henry, Giuliani said that the “case has been really simple from the day that Joe Biden confessed to committing bribery in 2018.”

“Although, he said precisely what was attributed to President Trump a year and a half later…Basically, they’ll prove that he committed bribery,” he said during the wide-ranging interview.

Giuliani said that the “reality is you’d have to be a fool” to think Biden “didn’t know that his son was under investigation.” The founder of the company Hunter Biden worked for is currently under investigation, but there is no evidence he himself is being investigated.

In an interview with CNN’s Don Lemon on Friday, Biden said that he is “embarrassed” for his former Senate colleague Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., over his request for documents pertaining to Hunter Biden’s time on the board of natural gas company Burisma Holdings and Ukraine.

Biden’s remarks drew a response on Twitter from Giuliani who wrote that Biden’s comments amounted to “a threat to a U.S. Senator,” and reminded the former federal prosecutor of “my old mafia cases.”

Giuliani told Henry that Biden sounded like a “poor imitation of ‘The Godfather,'” adding that Biden wanted to fight with the president “every other week.”

“I don’t care what he said. He’s lying. He’s been lying all his life,” Giuliani told Henry. “Every place that Joe Biden was a point man…the Biden family came away with millions. And nobody wants to look at it because the Washington press corps protects him.”

However, Giuliani’s former associate Lev Parnas — who pleaded not guilty to federal campaign finance violations earlier this month — is now claiming that he traveled to Kiev shortly before the inauguration of Zelensky to demand the new administration publicly announce an investigation into the Bidens.

Parnas’ lawyer confirmed to Fox News that his client told Ukrainian officials that Vice President Mike Pence would not attend the swearing-in of the new president and the United States would freeze aid to the Eastern European nation if the demands were not met.

The claim by Parnas, who has been preparing to testify in the House Intelligence Committee’s impeachment inquiry into President Trump, directly challenged the accounts by Trump and Ukrainian officials that have been at the heart of the congressional probe.

Giuliani said that the lawyer’s comments are untrue and that Parnas is “trying to make himself very important.”

“We never had that meeting with the president,” he said, adding that Parnas “got himself into a grandiose thing” and he could potentially “make himself into another Michael Cohen.”

Giuliani also denied a recent Wall Street Journal report stating that he would personally profit from a natural gas pipeline in Ukraine was false and that he was “not going to financially profit from anything that [he] knows of in the Ukraine.”

“I can’t keep up from the amount of false information printed about me,” he exclaimed.

“Are you afraid, Mr. Mayor, that you could be indicted?” asked Henry.

“You think I’m afraid?” Giuliani shot back. “I did the right thing.”

He said that he has absolutely no “business interest” in Ukraine, and that it was Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky who had first brought him up in his July phone call with President Trump because of his “reputation.”

Giuliani said that he wanted to “exculpate” his client.

“This is ridiculous. [The President] know what I did was order to defend the president — not to dig up dirt on Biden. This goes back a year ago before Biden [had] even decided to run for president,” he said.

“My thought when I began investigating this was to get evidence that will help my client prove that the charges against him aren’t true,” Giuliani said.

He predicted that “they’re ultimately going to prove” that this was a conspiracy to frame the president in which high-level Democrats and White House staff participated.

For the last two weeks, Americans have witnessed professional bureaucrats, who have worked in some capacity for the State Department in the country of Ukraine, complain about Rudy Giuliani.

Their complaint was that THEY were the experts on the situation in Ukraine and they resented President Trump sending his personal attorney over there in order to find out what was going on concerning the corruption which has been prevalent for some time there.

Methinks they did protest too much.

All those “diplomats” who were so adamantly opposed to “America’s Mayor snooping around in Ukraine had ties to the Obama Administration, they very President who appointed Joe Biden as his “Front Man” in dealing with Ukraine.

The entire Soviet-style Tribunal, which Adam Schiff ran with didactic impunity was not only an attempt to force President Trump out of the Presidency, it was an attempt to cover up the Democrats’ corrupt involvement with the Former Ukrainian Government.

Of course, Ukraine was not the only country in which the Democratic Party Elite were conducting corrupt activities, as IG Horowitz’ Report and “Bull” Durham’s and Bill Barr’s Reports are going to show.

The move toward Impeachment is not only the culmination of a three-year Democratic Party National Temper Tantrum, it is the biggest CYA Strategy in recorded history.

If you think that Sleepy Joe Biden is lashing out, wait until those reports come out and the other shoe drops.

Wouldn’t it be something if Federal Prosecutors could get Sleepy Joe to “flip” on Obama and the rest of the Deep State in exchange for leniency for himself and Hunter?

Hey…I can dream, can’t I?

Game Over: Rep. Turner Gets Amb. Sondland to Admit He “Presumed” That Trump Tied Aid to Investigation Request

November 21, 2019

mike-turner

FoxNews.com reports that

GOP Rep. Mike Turner, R-Ohio, hammered America’s ambassador to the European Union, Gordon Sondland, during Wednesday’s testimony, seizing on Sondland’s admission that he never heard the president or anyone else in the White House explicitly link Ukrainian aid with the opening of an investigation into 2020 Democratic candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., applauded his colleague on producing “the real bombshell” of Sondland’s long-anticipated testimony and marked the moment as “game over,” for the Democratic-led impeachment inquiry. That inquiry is focusing on an alleged quid pro quo between President Trump and Ukraine linking military aid and White House access to Ukraine probes beneficial to Trump.

During a fiery exchange, Turner focused on the Republican Party’s main defense of Trump, asking Sondland: “Is that your testimony today, Mr. Sondland? That you have evidence that Donald Trump tied the investigation to the aid? Because I don’t think you’re saying that.”

Sondland admitted that he was “presuming” the stalled military aid was linked to Trump allegedly asking  Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate the Bidens’ financial interests in Ukraine.

“So no one told you,” Turner pressed on. “Not just the president. Giuliani didn’t tell you, Mulvaney didn’t tell you. Nobody. Pompeo didn’t tell you. Nobody else on this planet told you that Donald Trump was tying aid to these investigations. Is that correct?”

The congressman cut Sondland off, restating his point: “No one on this planet told you that Donald Trump was tying this aid to the investigations, because if your answer is yes, then the chairman is wrong and the headline on CNN is wrong. No one on this planet told you that President Trump was tying aid to investigations. Yes or no?”

“Yes,” Sondland replied.

“So, you really have no testimony today that ties President Trump to a scheme to withhold aid from Ukraine in exchange for these investigations?” Turner asked.

“Other than my own presumption,” Sondland said.

Throughout Wednesday’s testimony, Sondland insisted that although he never explicitly heard the president or anyone in the administration demand investigations in exchange for aid, he never got a clear answer on why the aid was held up. He said the absence of a clear explanation led him to believe that the aid and the investigations were being linked.

Turner dismissed Sondland’s “presumption” as “nothing” and called his testimony “made up.”

“You know what hearsay evidence is, ambassador?” Turner said. “Hearsay is when I testify what someone else told me. Do you know what made-up testimony is? Made-up testimony is when I just presume it. I mean you’re just assuming all of these things and then you’re giving them the evidence that they’re running out and doing press conferences and CNN’s headline is saying that you’re saying the president of the United States should be impeached because he tied aid to investigations — and you don’t know that. Correct?”

“I never said the president of the United States should be impeached,” Sondland responded.

Still, Sondland’s earlier testimony to the committee linked the potential Ukraine investigations and a White House meeting and call between Trump and Zelensky. He said Giuliani played an integral, if not unconventional, role in those arrangements — and he said he explicitly expressed his fears about an inappropriate quid pro quo.

“I know that members of this committee have frequently framed these complicated issues in the form of a simple question: Was there a ‘quid pro quo?” Sondland said. “As I testified previously, with regard to the requested White House call and White House meeting, the answer is yes.”

Ambassador Sondland wanted to have his cake and eat it too, yesterday.

Just like the Professional Bureaucrats who have already publically testified in the Schiff Show, Sondland truly believes that he and his fellow bureaucrats dictate American Foreign Policy and not their boss, the President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump.

Speaking of arrogance, did you hear about what Nancy Pelosi said on Monday?

“The weak response to these hearings has been, ‘Let the election decide’. That dangerous position only adds to the urgency of our action, because POTUS is jeopardizing the integrity of the 2020 elections.’”

In other words, San Fran Nan does not believe that we average Americans, or “Deplorables” are too stupid to do “the right thing” on Election Day 2020 and vote a democrat into the Oval Office.

I find the imperious attitude of the Democrats and Professional Bureaucrats hauntingly familiar.

Marie Antoinette was the Queen of France during the French Revolution. She has gone down in history as the arrogant monarch who, when told the peasants were starving because they had no bread, said “let them eat cake.”  Marie was despised by the French citizenry for her foreign birth and extravagant lifestyle.   While today,  most scholars dismiss the quote as phony revolutionary propaganda, Marie was truthfully known to have been an out-of-control spender as a young queen. The daughter of Francis I and Maria Theresa, Emperor and Empress of the Holy Roman Empire, Marie left Austria for France in 1770 to marry the prince of France. In 1774 the prince became King Louis XVI and Marie became queen. The king and queen tried to flee as revolution swept Paris in 1789, but were captured. Marie and Louis XVI were kept as prisoners at the palace at Tuileries, while the revolutionaries tried to figure out what kind of government France was going to have.  They were arrested and charged with treason in 1792.  Louis was beheaded on 21 January 1793 and Marie was beheaded months later, on 16 October 1793.

The arrogance of  the French Ruling Class led to their downfall.

The arrogance displayed by the Democrats will, once again, just like it did in 2016, lead to their defeat in the 2020 Presidential Election.

Some people never learn.

Schiff Has the “Sads”: Impeachment Inquiry Witnesses Say No Bribery, No Quid Pro Quo, No Extortion

November 20, 2019

2068f862-5e0d-4659-8285-aafab732287f-AP_Trump_Impeachment_10

FoxNews.com reports that

Republicans sounded a celebratory note as House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry wrapped up another day of public hearings Tuesday evening, saying the day’s witnesses had served only to highlight fundamental problems in the case against President Trump.

“Did anyone ever ask you to bribe or extort anyone at any time during your time in the White House?” House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes, R-Calif., asked at one point in Tuesday’s hearing.

Former National Security Council (NSC) aide Tim Morrison: “No.”

U.S. Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker: “No.”

Later, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., hit the same notes in asking the witnesses about Trump’s fateful July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky: “Mr. Morrison, you were on that call, and there was no quid pro quo, correct? No bribery? No extortion?”

“Correct,” Morrison replied in response to each question.

“And, Ambassador Volker, I presume you got a readout of the call. … Was there any reference to withholding aid? Any reference to bribery? Any reference to quid pro quo? Any reference to extortion?”

“No, there was not,” Volker replied, again and again.

The answers underscored a problem facing House Democrats as their impeachment inquiry continued into its second week of public hearings: As more witnesses have testified, more soundbites have emerged that may help Republicans and the Trump campaign argue that the proceedings were politically motivated theater, long in the works and foreshadowed openly by Democrats for months, if not years.

Morrison, in another key moment, testified Tuesday afternoon that he understood the transcript of Trump’s call with Ukraine’s leader wound up on a highly secured and classified computer system due to an “administrative error” — not, as Democrats have alleged, because the president wanted to hide his conversation.

And, Volker testified repeatedly that he never received any indications at all that there was an improper quid pro quo with Ukraine, in which the Trump administration allegedly sought a probe of former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter in exchange for military aid.

As the hearing concluded, President Trump tweeted, “A great day for Republicans, a great day for our Country!”

Ohio GOP Rep. Jim Jordan told Fox News, “This was a very good day for Republicans, for our president.”

“Kind of hard to prove a corrupt quid pro quo theory when the key U.S. policy people, plus the Ukrainians, were never aware of such an arrangement,” Texas GOP Rep. Dan Crenshaw added late Tuesday, noting that Ukraine’s president has said he felt no pressure from Trump to open any probes. “Can we go back to governing now, that’d be great thanks.”

No kiddin’.

Earlier in the day, Alexander Vindman…err…excuse me, “Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, please” as he told Ranking Member Devin Nunes who referred to him as “Mr. Vindman”, testified.

To say that he was not very impressive would be an understatement.

Memes of the Lt. Col. as “Flounder” from “Animal House” were quickly spread all over Facebook during his self-righteous testimony.

Lt. Col. Vindman came across as a pencil-pushing, gala-attending bureaucrat in an Army Uniform.

Vindman and all of the other professional nonelected bureacrats whom we have seen testify so far have been prime examples of the reason that President Trump needs to continue to drain the Bureaucratic Swamp.

In the minds of these people, THEY set Foreign Policy, not the President.

And, certainly not an “amateur” like President Trump.

Between the arrogance displayed by Adam Schiff and the House Democrats and most of the Professional Bureacrats, what we have been witnessing during the Impeachment Inquiry Hearings is an EGOSTORM of hurt feelings.

The bureaucrats have hurt feelings because Trump is putting American first instead of nation building.

The House Democrats, including Adam Schiff, had their feelings hurt on Election Night 2016 and their ensuing temper tantrum is still in progress.

All of these well-paid “professionals” need to buck up, grow up, and do their jobs.

However, with the Democrats busy showing their backsides during these hearings, it means that they are too busy to pass legislation which would interfere with America’s Economic Boom under President Trump.

So, it’s a win-win.

The House Democrats are looking like a bunch of idiots…

And, America is becoming greater every day.

Capt. “Ahab” Schiff’s and the Dems’ Quest for “Moby Trump” Continues With Witnesses With No First Hand Knowledge of the Phone Call

November 19, 2019

05-long-list-lia-600

“He tasks me; he heaps me; I see in him outrageous strength, with an inscrutable malice sinewing it. That inscrutable thing is chiefly what I hate; and be the white whale agent, or be the white whale principal, I will wreak that hate upon him. Talk to me not of blasphemy, man; I’d smite the sun if it insulted me” – Captain Ahab, “Moby Dick” by Herman Melville

FoxNews.com reports that

Beginning Tuesday morning, in a rush of five hearings ahead of the Thanksgiving recess, eight witnesses — including several who have provided inconsistent accounts of key events — are set to testify over three days in what could be a make-or-break week in House Democrats’ impeachment investigation.

Less than 24 hours before the proceedings are set to be gaveled in at 9 a.m. ET, President Trump floated the idea of testifying, rather than tweeting, during the inquiry. A top Republican called for a last-minute postponement, citing secretive new developments behind closed doors. And, the Trump campaign has pointed out apparent inconsistencies in some witness testimony already on the record.

Though he’s not slated to testify until Wednesday, the key witness expected to come up throughout the week is Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland, the wealthy donor who has bragged about his proximity to President Trump — and who repeatedly has frustrated Democrats’ narrative by contradicting several other key witnesses in the probe.

For example, Sondland previously testified behind closed doors that Trump explicitly told him there were to be “no quid pro quos of any kind” with Ukraine, and that he didn’t recall any conversations with the White House about withholding military assistance in return for Ukraine helping with the president’s political campaign. Democrats have alleged that Trump held up the aid to ensure a public probe into the Ukraine business dealings of former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

Then, William Taylor, the U.S. chargé d’affaires for Ukraine, told lawmakers that Sondland himself said “everything” — a White House visit for Ukraine’s new leader and the release of military aid to the former Soviet republic — was contingent on a public announcement of investigations into the 2016 election and into Ukraine gas company Burisma. Hunter Biden sat on its board.

Weeks later, after testimony from Taylor and National Security Council [NSC] official Tim Morrison placed him at the center of key discussions, Sondland suddenly amended his testimony and claimed his recollection had been “refreshed.” Sondland said he now could recall a September conversation in which he told an aide to Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky that military aid likely would not occur until Ukraine made public announcements about corruption investigations. Sondland said he came to “understand” that arrangement from other sources.

Morrison, the NSC’s outgoing senior director of European and Russian affairs and White House deputy assistant, is to testify Tuesday afternoon. In his closed-door deposition, which Democrats released over the weekend, Morrison said Trump didn’t want tax dollars funding Ukrainian corruption, and remarked that he wasn’t concerned Trump’s calls with Ukraine’s leader were tied to his political interests.

Additionally, Sondland has insisted he knew acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney only well enough to wave and say hello — and that’s about it. He said he may have spoken to him once or twice on the phone, but not about Ukraine. Meanwhile, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, a National Security Council official, has testified Sondland cited a discussion with Mulvaney when pushing Ukrainian officials to open the investigations that Trump wanted into the 2016 U.S. presidential election and into potential 2020 election opponent Joe Biden.

Vindman is scheduled to testify Tuesday morning. Republicans have further noted that Morrison has testified privately that he “had concerns about Lieutenant Colonel Vindman’s judgment” and had heard concerns that Vindman was a leaker.

Separately, Fiona Hill, another White House national security official, said Sondland often talked of meetings with Mulvaney. In a further link between the two men, she quoted the-then National Security Adviser John Bolton as telling her he didn’t want to be part of “whatever drug deal Sondland and Mulvaney were cooking up.”

Hill is to testify Friday morning, after Sondland’s appearance.

And, what kind of individual is in charge of this fiasco?

An extremely biased professional politician who is obsessed with impeaching President Trump.

The Far Left Democratic Party and all of their Hive-mind “New Bolsheviks” have been proving ever since the night of November 8, 2016 that denial truly is not just a river in Egypt.

While it was definitely a hoot to watch the Democrats and their minions The Main Stream Media and the New Bolsheviks have a complete and utter meltdown on that historic night, it made me wonder to what lengths the Democrats up on the Hill would go in order to try to obstruct, impede, and even end the Presidency of Donald J. Trump.

Now…I know.

The thing is, even after the Special Counsel’s Russia Investigation turned out to be nothing but a total embarrassment for the Dems, they decided that we the people still had to be saved from “poor choice” as our President.

And now, he we are in the middle of a Soviet-style tribunal in which Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi, and the other Democrats have already found President Donald J. Trump guily and do not care that he is innocent.

By the way, did you know that a goupr of baboons is called a “Congress”?

It’s true.

Anyway, these self-righteous baboons on Capitol Hill are about to be hoisted on their own petard.

Even if the investigations by IG Horowitz and AG Barr find just minor violations (which I seriously doubt), the Far Left Democrats will most assuredly lose in 2020.

Why?

They will have shown their backsides way too often to average American Voters who elected Donald J. Trump as President because they were sick and tired of the Washingtonian Status Quo.

If the Democrats were ever to have even had a chance in the 2020 Presidential Election, it sure would not have been by siding with those on the Far Left end of the Political Spectrum in their demented obsession to somehow get Trump out of office, while not championing any sort of legislation which would benefit those average Americans mentioned earlier.

Just like Captain Ahab’s obsession with the Great White Whale, Moby Dick, led to his and his crew’s doom, so will Adam Schiff and the Democrats’ obsession with extricating President Donald J. Trump from the Oval Office doom their political future as a viable party which average Americans can relate to.

The Democrats’ embracing of special interest groups, their advocacy of the Socialist brand of Marxism, and their obsession to destroy Trump, are the perfect storm of tone-deafness towards those Americans who could actually give them the political power which they so intensely crave.

However, their hatred of us average Americans, whom they have referred to as “Deplorables”, and their embracing of so many things which normal people living in America’s Heartland view as “anti-American”, will doom the Democrats, like Captain Ahab, to a political watery grave.

What makes me so sure?

Well, since my family were Southern Democrats until Ronald Wilson Reagan ran for President, I guess that you can just…

“Call me Ishmael”.
