Nov 1, 2019 ~ John Daniel Davidson, 'House Democrats Were Always Going To Impeach President Trump'. Article reminds that this is the 4th impeachment vote. 2017 58 dems voted to impeach regarding Trump's NFL comments. Then 66 dems and 95 dems vote on 2 more impeachments for silly reasons.
Nov 6, 2019 ~ Whistleblower lawyer Mark Zaid 2017 tweets reveal the impeachment farce has been part of the plan since 2017. 'Coup has started? Impeachment will follow ultimately' 'We will get rid of him' 'I predict @CNN will play a key role in @realDonaldTrump not finishing out his full term'
Nov 10, 2019 ~ Alan Dershowitz accuses democrats of 'making up crimes'. 'Whether you're a Democrat or a Republican you should be frightened by efforts to try to create crimes out of nothing' 'the Democrats are now making up crimes' Beria to Stalin, 'Show me the man, and I'll find you the crime'
Nov 12, 2019 ~ Victor Davis Hanson article 'Ten Reasons Impeachment Is Illegitimate' Unlike previous impeachments, this is not based on a special council investigation. Also, dems have been trying to impeach since 2016. Unless they were psychic in 2016, this can't be about a Ukraine phone call.
Nov 13, 2019 ~ First day of public impeachment hearings goes very badly for the democrats. Like the so called 'whistleblower', the two star witnesses had nothing but hearsay. But don't worry, Democrat Mike Quigley explains, 'Hearsay can be much better evidence than direct'. Pelosi panicking.
Nov 13, 2019 ~ Sondland hearsay example 'Ambassador Taylor recalls that Mr. Morrison told Ambassador Taylor that I told Mr. Morrison that I conveyed this message to Mr. Yermack on Sept 1, 2019 in connection with Vice President Pence's visit to Warsaw and a meeting with President Zelensky.'
Nov 13, 2019 ~ Rep. Elise Stefanik was the subject of a very sexist accusation by ABC News' chief political analyst, Matthew Dowd. 'Elise stefanik is a perfect example of why just electing someone because they are a woman or a millennial doesn't necessarily get you the leaders we need.'
Nov 14, 2019 ~ George Kent testified that he pushed to reopen the Burisma investigation. So Obama Admin asked to do the very thing Trump is being impeached for asking to do. 'I raised my concern that Hunter Biden's status as a board member could create the perception of a conflict of interest.'

Nov 15, 2019 ~ Former Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch testified that she knows of no crimes including bribes that Trump has committed. Was upset that he fired her. MSM and dems were outraged. Called it 'unprecedented'. However, its actually so routine that Obama fired ALL of Bush's ambassadors.
Nov 15, 2019 ~ Schiff not only has denied Republicans from calling witnesses, he won't allow them to question his witnesses. 'The gentlewoman will suspend.' 'You're gagging the gentlewoman from New York?' 'That is accurate. The gentlewoman will suspend, you're not recognized.' What a farce.
Nov 15, 2019 ~ Rush Limbaugh's theory for why the Democrats are going forward with such a weak impeachment case: they gambled that Trump would not release the transcript so that they could characterize the call the way they and the whistleblower wanted. Then he released but they were committed.
Nov 16, 2019 ~ Andrew McCarthy 'The 3-year Democratic campaign to impeach Trump has never been about impeaching Trump.' They knew the facts would not convince the Senate. 'The Democrats' real objective is to render the president so battered and bruised that his reelection becomes inconceivable'
Nov 17, 2019 ~ Nancy Pelosi says that letting the people decide who will be the President in 2020 is 'dangerous'. "The weak response to these hearings has been, 'Let the election decide.' That dangerous position only adds to the urgency of our action" This is too important to be left to voters.
Nov 17, 2019 ~ Francis Menton, 'Biden v. Trump: Which One Is The "Bribe"?' Makes the case that the way Pelosi defines bribery, all politicians are guilty. Example promising money or services in exchange for votes. But further shows that Biden's actions meet the definition far more than Trump's.
Nov 18, 2019 ~ Brit Hume explains the rules of the game, 'Unproven claims against Trump are simply described as "unverified." Similar claims against Biden are said to be based on "no evidence."' 'It's similar with inquiries. Those into Trump = investigations. Those into Biden = dirt digging.'
Nov 18, 2019 ~ CBS News legal analyst Jonathan Turley "That's where we're seeing this shift toward bribery. The problem is that it is a very sketchy basis. I have to tell you I don't believe they've made out a case for bribery either under the modern definition or how the framers understood it"
Nov 20, 2019 ~ Day 3 of impeachment hearings are another bust for democrats. No Quid Pro Quo says Zelensky, Ukraine Foreign Minister, Kurt Volker, Tim Morrison, Ambassador Sondland. Yovanovitch knows of no crimes incl. bribery. @RealDonaldTrump says 'If this were a prizefight, they'd stop it!'
Nov 21, 2019 ~ Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland exonerates President Trump. Sondland testified that he asked Trump 'What do you want from Ukraine?' Trump responded. 'I want nothing. I want nothing. I want no quid pro quo. Tell Zelensky to do the right thing.' Case Closed.
Nov 21, 2019 ~ Fiona Hill testifies that the idea that Ukraine might have interfered in the 2016 election is a 'fictional narrative' because Russia interfered. But no one said Russia didn't. Politico article 2017 'Ukrainian efforts to sabotage Trump backfire' 'quietly working to boost Clinton.'
Nov 21, 2019 ~ Rep. Mike Turner did not appreciate Fiona Hill claiming that 'Some of you on this committee appear to believe that Russia and its security services did not conduct a campaign against our country'. Turner showed her the report on Russian Interference 'was voted on by all of us.'
Nov 21, 2019 ~ Rep Maloney said to Fiona Hill 'that was some epic mansplaining that you were forced to endure by my colleague Mr. Turner'. Maloney basically held the woman's hand and said so sorry you had 'to endure' the same treatment that the men received and had to listen to a man's opinion.
Nov 21, 2019 ~ Rob Reiner is ranting like a lunatic. ' If he is not thrown out of office, Putin will have been successful in destroying our 243 year Democratic Experiment.' 'Trump & the GOP have become a wholly owned subsidiary of the Kremlin.' Wait, the TDS loons still believe the Russia Hoax?
Nov 21, 2019 ~ Devin Nunes is suing CNN and The Daily Beast for spreading fake news about him regarding the Ukraine Hoax. 'These demonstrably false and scandalous stories published by the Daily Beast and CNN are the perfect example of defamation and reckless disregard for the truth.'
Nov 21, 2019 ~ Mollie Hemingway, 'Media's Latest Anti-Nunes Smear Is Michael-Cohen-In-Prague All Over Again'. Hemingway recounts how the fake new media refused to retract their story after it was clear Cohen was never in Prague. This story is just as 'objectively stupid.' #FakeNewsMedia
Nov 21, 2019 ~ The New York Post editorial board said the Impeachment Hearings were a total waste of time. 'Not one witness offered any direct evidence that President Trump did anything clearly impeachable. No one heard him order a quid pro quo in which Ukraine would gin up "dirt" on Joe Biden'
Nov 22, 2019 ~ Mollie Hemingway, 'Republicans Won Phase One Of Impeachment' 'It was completely unclear what crime, much less what high crime, Trump was accused of committing.' 'as with the Russia collusion hoax,... the lack of evidence for the charges against him is his ultimate saving grace.'
Nov 30, 2019 ~ Michael Goodwin NY POST, 'Trump's policy toward Ukraine has been far stronger than President Barack Obama's. Providing Ukraine with antitank weapons to counter Russian invasions is a direct slap at Vladimir Putin, a move Obama rejected because he feared it would provoke Putin.'
Dec 1, 2019 ~ In Der Spiegel interview, President Zelensky of Ukraine stated again that there was no quid pro quo. 'I did not speak with US President Trump in those terms: you give me this, I give you that.' While he was speaking, Democrats plugged their ears and loudly sang 'LA LA LA LA LA'.
Dec 1, 2019 ~ In Time interview President Zelensky of Ukraine stated again that there was no quid pro quo. 'I never talked to the president from the position of a quid pro quo. That's not my thing.' Dems continue the circus by calling opinion columnists and left wing professors as 'witnesses'.
Dec 3, 2019 ~ Adam Schiff releases 300 page 'Impeachment Report'. The report includes all of the hearsay and speculation. And leaves out how the only actual witnesses to the incident, President Zelensky, Kurt Volker, Tim Morrison, Ambassador Sondland said 'No quid pro quo'.
Dec 3, 2019 ~ Adam Schiff 'Impeachment Report' hits new low as he releases the phone records of people in Congress like Devin Nunes, journalists he doesn't like such as John Solomon and people associated with Trump like Rudy Giuliani. Exactly the kind of abuse of power he claims to be against.
Dec 4, 2019 ~ Noah Feldman in Apr. 2017 said Trump should be impeached for 'undercutting' the press with talk about 'fake news'. And also for a 'Mar-a-Lago Ad'. And also for tweeting his dislike of being 'wiretapped' by the Obama admin. This is one of today's important 'witnesses' for the dems
Dec 4, 2019 ~ The next ridiculous 'witness' the democrats called, Pamela Karlan is so afflicted with Trump Derangement Syndrome, she explained how she has crossed streets so as not to walk on the same side of the street as the Trump Hotel. Not one 'witness' had anything resembling -evidence-.
Dec 4, 2019 ~ Pamela Karlan who can't walk on the same side of the street as the Trump Hotel once said 'conservative people, tend to spread out more, perhaps because they don't even want to be around themselves.' This is who democrats think is an impartial 'witness' in an impeachment hearing.
Dec 4, 2019 ~ Jonathan Turley testified 'I remain concerned that we are lowering impeachment standards to fit a paucity of evidence and an abundance of anger.' Told Congress 'is an abuse of power. It's your abuse of power.' Was 'inundated with threatening messages and demands that I be fired.'
Dec 4, 2019 ~ Jonathan Turley was the only witness Republicans were allowed to call by Nadler. The democrats called three hyper partisan witnesses and allowed the GOP one witness who is a democrat that voted for Hillary Clinton. No attempt is being made to make the process even appear fair.
Dec 4, 2019 ~ Andy McCarthy, 'Schiff continues to ignore significant evidence that Ukrainian government officials meddled in the 2016 election to promote Clinton and hurt Trump' 'no contradiction in believing both that Russia hacked to harm Democrats and that Ukraine meddled to harm Trump.'
Dec 4, 2019 ~ Andy McCarthy, on what a sham this 'no due process' process and report has been. 'In no serious, objective investigation would the tribunal deny one side the opportunity to present its case, and then write a report concluding that no evidence supported that side's position.'
Dec 6, 2019 ~ Sensing that quid pro quo and bribery evidence is lacking, dems switch to idea that Trump thinks he's a king. Support by taking quote 'Article II says I can do whatever I want.' hugely out of context. Was talking about a very specific situation, firing Mueller which he didn't do.
Dec 12, 2019 ~ Democrats continue to lie about the phone call before vote on Impeachment Articles. Veronica Escobar and others misquote Trump 'I want you to do ME a favor' Actual quote, 'I would like you to do US a favor though because OUR COUNTRY has been through a lot.' Totally different.
Dec 13, 2019 ~ House democrats file 2 Articles of Impeachment. Abuse of Presidential Power and Obstruction of Congress. No crime. Obstruction immediately shot down by SCOTUS who said it was within process to challenge subpoenas in court. Abuse of power is so vague all Presidents can be charged.
Dec 13, 2019 ~ Kimberley Strassel of the Wall Street Journal said this was 'honey, we shrunk the impeachment'. For months dems talked about actual crimes like bribery, extortion, quid pro quo. None of that was in the articles because they realized many dems would be implicated on that standard.
Dec 13, 2019 ~ Michael Reagan said that the very broad 'abuse of power' and 'obstruction of congress' articles easily applies to any President. Gives example of Fast and Furious and the subsequent refusal to turn over documentation resulting in Eric Holder being held in Contempt of Congress.
Dec 17, 2019 ~ Alan Dershowitz 'Neither of these proposed articles satisfy the express constitutional criteria for an impeachment, which are limited to "treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors." Neither are high or low crimes or misdemeanors. Neither... within the Constitution.'
Dec 18, 2019 ~ Brit Hume, on the absurdity of this impeachment farce. 'The matter under consideration didn't match the rhetoric. We're talking about the temporary withholding of aid that was ultimately provided in exchange for an investigation that wasn't conducted.'
Dec 18, 2019 ~ Rep. Al Green spoke next to a picture of migrant girl Yanela Denise at the impeachment vote. She became the face of child separation after Time cover. She also has nothing to with the impeachment. And she was also fake news. Her father said she was never separated from her mother
Dec 18, 2019 ~ Democrats and the media showed their true colors after impeachment vote. House dems erupt in applause after vote tally. Rashida Tlaib makes joyful video. Washington Post tweets all smiles celebratory picture 'Merry Impeachmas from the WaPo team!' Fake News doesn't even hide bias.
Dec 19, 2019 ~ Dems believe the following are just coincidences. Hunter Biden got a high paying job in Ukraine when his father was in charge of US, Ukraine relations. Then same coincidence for China. The prosecutor Joe Biden demanded be fired was the one investigating Hunter's company.
Dec 20, 2019 ~ Alan Dershowitz, 'The first article goes too far in authorizing impeachment based on the vague criterion of abuse of power. But it is the second article that truly endangers our system of checks and balances and the important role of the courts as the umpires.'
