    Democrats and a cheerleading press corps are accelerating their drive to impeach President Trump, with the release Thursday of the whistleblower complaint and a harangue of the acting director of national intelligence. Not to spoil the fun, but when is the House going to hold a roll call vote to authorize this effort to oust an elected President? House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday she now supports an “official” inquiry, but nothing changed other than the political momentum for impeachment. The same committees investigating all things Trump are doing what they were doing before her statement. Mrs. Pelosi seems to...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House is dusting off its playbook from the special counsel's Russia investigation. Caught off guard by the speed at which a whistleblower's claims have morphed into an impeachment inquiry, President Donald Trump and his team are scrambling to respond. They're turning, at least for now, to some of the same strategies they used to counter special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. The basic tactics deployed by the short-staffed White House: Attempt to discredit government officials at the heart of the story. Dispatch Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani and other allies to muddy the picture. Lean on Republicans...

    House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff’s opening statement at today’s hearing, a grilling of National Intelligence Director Joseph Maguire, was remarkable. To begin with, he recited a parody of the conversation between President Trump and Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky that was so absurd, it would not have made it into a Grade-C mob movie. A telling decision by Schiff, a capable former prosecutor: If you have an extortionate conversation, you quote it. If you need to imagine it into something it isn’t, that means it is not an extortionate conversation. Also telling: Chairman Schiff came flying out of the starting...

    Well, this is certainly an odd coincidence! In fact, when you dig in, you find an amazing series of coincidences. If you believe in coincidences when the CIA is involved, that is. Mitt Romney’s national security advisor in his 2012 campaign -- a career CIA spook who rose to its top levels -- sits on the board of directors of Burisma, the Ukrainian gas company that formerly paid Hunter Biden $50k a month despite his complete lack of credentials or qualifications. And it also an odd coincidence that Mitt has as CNN puts it “been a lone Republican voice expressing...

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s announcement that the House will formally consider President Trump’s impeachment has plunged America into a constitutional crisis. Mr. Trump smartly released the rough transcript of his July 25 conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. It undermines Mrs. Pelosi’s claim (made after the transcript’s release but before she had read it) that Mr. Trump “asked a foreign government to help him in his political campaign at the expense of our national security.” Yet don’t expect the president’s act of transparency to deter Democrats who want him removed from office. ... Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Rep. Adam Schiff could...

    May those who seek my life be disgraced and put to shame; may those who plot my ruin be turned back in dismay. May they be like chaff before the wind, with the angel of the LORD driving them away; may their path be dark and slippery, with the angel of the LORD pursuing them. Since they hid their net for me without cause and without cause dug a pit for me, may ruin overtake them by surprise-- may the net they hid entangle them, may they fall into the pit, to their ruin. Then my soul will rejoice in...

    [Background] As I’m wiping down the white-board to outline the corrupt purposes, intents and connections, suddenly it becomes obvious. The Ukraine story is Obstruction 2.0. To assemble a quick elevator explanation of the Muh Russia obstruction construction, and to better understand the end goal of the political objective which encompassed the use of the FISA court, CTH previously said: To get impeachment, they needed obstruction. To get obstruction, they needed an investigation. To get the investigation, they needed evidence. To change dossier from oppo-research to evidence they needed a FISA. To get a FISA they needed a target. The target...

    Progressive activists crashed an award ceremony honoring House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) at a San Francisco hotel on Wednesday night, demanding she support the introduction of articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump. Armed with signs that read “We can’t wait,” demonstrators stood on chairs while shouting, “Which side are you on, Pelosi? Impeach!” inside the InterContinental hotel, where the San Francisco Democrat Party members honored the longtime California lawmaker with a lifetime achievement award.

    When Congress initiated impeachment proceedings against President Richard Nixon 45 years ago, the House Intelligence Committee didn’t exist. Now, Democrats plan to use the panel - and its access to the nation’s most closely guarded counterintelligence secrets - to help guide a potential impeachment of President Donald Trump, according to Democratic aides. The Intelligence Committee’s involvement could provide Democrats with more evidence against Trump that could strengthen their case against him. The intelligence panel's role is a sign of the unprecedented nature of the questions surrounding Trump's relationship with Russia, as well as the uncharted territory House Democrats find themselves...

    **SNIP** In an exclusive interview with "Meet the Press," Schiff said “there is great weight” to the argument that impeaching Trump is an imperative in order to take a stand that the allegations he’s accused of — mainly, obstruction of justice — cannot be tolerated by Congress. But he said a failed impeachment fight could end up sending the wrong message. “I worry equally about the message of taking an impeachment case to trial, losing that case, having the president acquitted, and then having an adjudication that this conduct is not impeachable,” he said. "The jury I'm most worried about,...

    **SNIP** “We do need to be realistic, and that is, the only way he’s leaving office, at least at this point, is by being voted out, and I think our efforts need to be made in every respect to make sure we turn out our people,” Schiff said. “Should we put the country through an impeachment? I haven’t been convinced yet that we should, and going through that kind of momentous and disruptive experience for the country, I think, is not something we go into lightly,” he added. The California Democrat went on to say that Mueller turned the investigation...

    Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) vowed she is not going anywhere until President Trump is impeached in a speech at the NAACP annual convention in Detroit. Tlaib was responding to Trump's call to "send them back," referring to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her progressive colleagues. "I'm not going nowhere, not until I impeach this president," Tlaib said at the top of her speech. "I want to welcome NAACP to Detroit, my home where I was born and raised."

    Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) filed articles of impeachment against President Trump on Tuesday under a process that will force a House floor vote by the end of this week. Loading... Green introduced his articles of impeachment after the House passed a resolution largely along party lines condemning Trump for suggesting that four progressive freshman congresswomen of color - Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Ayanna Pressley (Mass.), Ilhan Omar (Minn.) and Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) - "go back" to their countries. Green said that the House should go beyond condemning Trump and move to remove him from office. It will be the third...

    The ranks of pro-impeachment-inquiry Democrats are growing each week, but it’s still not enough to move the needle for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. As of last week, more than 80 Democrats were calling for an impeachment inquiry, which is a critical first step toward attempting to oust the president. Most strikingly, the count now includes some devoted Pelosi supporters. Reps. Janice D. Schakowsky of Illinois, Joseph P. Kennedy III of Massachusetts and Eric Swalwell of California have joined the inquiry camp in the past few weeks. But the pro-impeachment forces still make up only slightly more than one-third of the...

    VIDEO Live Stream of the Screech To Impeach protest in Miami, Florida at 1:00 PM in Miami, Florida on June 15, 2019. The Fort Lauderdale Screech to Impeach protest in downtown Fort Lauderdale on June 14 turned out to be pretty much a dud with no more than a dozen protestors showing up. All they did was screech at cars driving by. Hopefully the Miami Screech To Impeach protest will prove more interesting. It is supposed to last 4 hours but don't be surprised if it fizzles out long before then.

"Instead of leading, you and your colleagues have asked us to wait - wait for the Mueller report, wait for the unredacted Mueller report, wait for Mueller's testimony about the Mueller report, wait for more investigations, wait for bipartisan consensus, wait for impeachment to poll better, or wait for the 2020 election," it says. The groups signing the letter include CREDO Action, Free Speech for People, MPower, Movimiento Cosecha,...

    Do the Democrats who talk about impeaching President Donald Trump know that we are in a shooting war in which the enemy has attacked our homeland causing significant property damage and civilian deaths? Those who want to remove our Commander in Chief are saying they don't appreciate the efforts of thousands of brave American men and women who are willing to risk "trading all of their tomorrows so we can have today." There is an ancient proverb that says "the enemy of my enemy is my friend". By treating President Trump as their enemy, Congressional Democrats are implying they are...
