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.'
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 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 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 ~ 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 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 17, 2019 ~ Chris Matthews asks, 'Does it make sense for the country to elect a president impeached in his first term to a second?' There's the strategy of impeaching on groundless charges that will be thrown out in the Senate. You can say, 'you can't vote for him, he's been impeached!'
Dec 16, 2019 ~ New Jersey Democratic 'Rep. Jeff Van Drew will be switching to the Republican party following his party's decision to impeach President Trump. 'My district is red, a good chunk of it, and they're definitely anti-impeachment'.
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 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 ~ 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 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 11, 2019 ~ Jonathan Turley elaborates on the threats he's received from violent democrats unhappy with his impeachment testimony. Not only did he receive many threats and calls to be fired but his 'wife AND DOG' were also threatened. Similar to those who crossed dems in Kavanaugh hearings.
Dec 10, 2019 ~ Victor Davis Hanson, Dems tried many impeachment pretexts since 2017. Emoluments clause, Logan Act, 25th Amendment, Russian 'collusion'. 'After the collapse of each of these agendas, all that was left was impeachment itself... but what was needed was a new and better "crime"'
Dec 7, 2019 ~ Al Green gives more reasons why Trump must be impeached besides preventing his re-election. 'We have to deal with slavery. Slavery was the thing that put all of what President Trump has done lately into motion.' and 'discrimination as a relates to the LGBTQ community' Not satire.

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 5, 2019 ~ So much evidence that democrats have been planning the impeachment before they found a pretext. Back in 2017 Nadler campaigned that he was the 'strongest' lawmaker 'to lead a potential impeachment'. In '98 'The effect of impeachment is to overturn the popular will of the voters.'
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 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 ~ Steve Scalise exposes the sham. '16 Dems on the Judiciary Committee already voted to impeach the President back in July.' This is the 4th attempt to impeach President Trump. Democrats have been grasping from straw to straw over 3 years in search of a pretext that will stick.
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 ~ 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 ~ 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 ~ 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 ~ 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 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 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 ~ Flashback. In 2017 Maxine Waters said Trump should be impeached for using the term 'crooked Hillary' BECAUSE it 'was a play from Putin's playbook? I think that was developed strategically with people from the Kremlin, with Putin.' Dems waited for a *slightly* better pretext.
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 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'.
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.'
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 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 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 ~ 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 ~ 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 ~ 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 ~ 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 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 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 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 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 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 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.
