    VENTURA, Calif. - At least one person wasn't willing to honk a car horn in support of Trump Protesters in Ventura on Wednesday evening. The passenger of a compact car driving by leaned out the window and flipped the bird with both hands. The rude gesture didn't stop protestors from rallying for democracy. They lined Victoria Ave. near the Ventura County Government center and waved a variety of signs. One sign held up behind a Trump impersonator said "TRE45ON."

    Impeachment is too slow for the likes of liberal media denizen Mike Barnicle. He wants President Trump pulled from office immediately. On today’s Morning Joe, Barnicle said: “Can we rewrite the Constitution and have another President take over right now?Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    The chances that President Trump will be impeached are rising, according to one Irish bookmaker, one day after Trump refused to denounce Russian meddling in the 2016 election following a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Paddy Power increased the likelihood of Trump being impeached on Tuesday from 8-1 to 2-1, according to Yahoo News. The news outlet first reported that the betting company also increased the likelihood of Trump being impeached this year, from 12-1 to 8-1....
  • Jon Meacham Suggests Trump Committed Treason at Helsinki Summit

    Impeachment seems to be on the mind of liberal historian Jon Meacham lately. In May, Meacham predicted that a newly elected Democrat House will impeach President Donald Trump as a "season finale." Meacham's I-word obsession returned to Meacham on Tuesday's Morning Joe when he suggested that Trump somehow committed treason at the Helsinki Summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Meacham, with unintentional irony, cited former CIA Director John Brennan, who admittedly voted for a Communist candidate for president during the height of the Cold War, for making his treason case [emphasis mine]:
  • O'Rourke calls for Trump's impeachment over Putin summit (Ted Cruz's 2018 opponent)

    Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-Texas) said on Tuesday that President Trump's performance at a controversial news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin warrants impeachment – and that he would vote to do so. "Standing on stage in another country with the leader of another country who wants to and has sought to undermine this country, and to side with him over the United States - if I were asked to vote on this I would vote to impeach the president," O'Rourke said, according to The Dallas Morning-News. "Impeachment, much like an indictment, shows that there is enough there for the case...

    A group of army generals rolling tanks and troops into Seoul to seize power. Paratroopers firing at large crowds calling for democracy. Tanks and armored vehicles stationed at universities to intimidate student protesters. Such scenes of military intervention in South Korea have been nonexistent since the country achieved democracy in the late 1980s. But revelations this past week of a document showing the military drafted plans to mobilize troops to suppress protests last year have struck a nerve among people in one of Asia’s most vibrant and wealthiest democracies. Some allege the plans even included a scenario for a coup....

    Look forget the tons of condemning words, This clown, incompetent, Assistant Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein and his cohort dancing partner, Robert Mueller have gone too far. As they both struggle to cover their butts and get themselves unraveled from the multi-million dollar farce they looted from the USA is time for the Republicans in the House of Representatives to impeach this raving buffoon, Rod Rosenstein. Mueller, I do not care about him...he has sunk himself into the Obama acid swamp of failed public servants. Now, Mr. Rosenstein and Mr. Mueller, as an American Taxpayer, who has been fleeced thus...

    Those of you interested in the topic would probably be very interested in seeing what's going on here and the attitudes involved, including a surprising extent of obvious arrogance in the context of the situation. Complete exchange between Rep. Trey Gowdy and FBI Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok I don't watch television and haven't seen some of the individuals in the case in video before now. It's a real eye opener.

    FBI agent Peter Strzok said Thursday he doesn’t know how many witnesses, if any, he interviewed as part of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe before texting his mistress that President Trump should be impeached. Rep. Trey Gowdy, South Carolina Republican, had asked Mr. Strzok the question early in the embattled FBI agent’s testimony before Congress. However, Mr. Strzok declined to answer citing the advice of FBI counsel. After a brief recess, Mr. Strzok said he was advised that he could answer the question. But when they returned from recess, Mr. Gowdy again asked Mr. Strzok how many witnesses he...

    I can smell Donald Trump’s fear from here. His panic. His anxiety. And yet, I don’t have a full picture of what is causing it. The only people who know what has been discovered in the Russian election meddling probe are Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team, and they aren’t talking. But President Trump no doubt knows far more about it than the rest of us, and what he knows — or what he fears — appears to be a consuming preoccupation. He tweets about the investigation constantly. Part of this is an overt play to bend public opinion,...

    Tom Steyer Hastily Backpedals After Suggesting Nuclear War Could Serve as ‘Course Correction’ for Trump.(full title). Tom Steyer — the Democratic megadonor leading the charge for Donald Trump‘s impeachment — recently suggested that it might take some drastic developments to undo the impact the president has had on America. The billionaire recently gave an interview to Rolling Stone, where he argued that the Democratic grassroots and politicians on the Left have to make Trump’s removal from office their number one priority.

    Rocky Anderson, it turns out, is not stepping aside quietly. Joining a list of liberal luminaries, including Noam Chomsky and George McGovern, Salt Lake City's outgoing mayor submitted a letter Friday that calls on the House Judiciary Committee to investigate the Bush administration for abuses of power. The letter, signed by 18 political and cultural figures, asks House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers, D-Mich., to hold hearings on alleged violations of the law under President Bush that include kidnapping and torture, warrantless wiretapping, a war of aggression against Iraq and disseminating false propaganda to deceive the American people. It came...

    Rod Rosenstein works for President Donald Trump, who can order the deputy attorney general to comply with subpoenaed document requests from Congress or face the consequences, former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy said Thursday on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.” “The great irony I thought of the hearing was my friend [Rep.] Jim Jordan [of Ohio] really laying into Rod Rosenstein saying, ‘You’re the boss. These people work for you.’ And the elephant in the room is that Rosenstein works for Trump,” said McCarthy, a National Review contributor and former assistant U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York. “Trump...

    (CNN)There is a truly remarkable number in the most recent CNN poll, conducted by SSRS and out this morning. In it, 42% of Americans say President Donald Trump should be impeached and removed from office. What makes it remarkable is that he's on par with President Richard Nixon, who 43% of Americans said should be impeached and removed from office in a March 1974 Harris poll. That was after the scale of Watergate came to light, but months before the House started to move against Nixon, who would go on to resign in August 1974 rather than be impeached. Impeachment...

    The long-awaited showdown between the Justice Department and Congress is finally here. It started late Friday afternoon. While the rest of the country was parsing the just-released report on the FBI from the Justice Department’s inspector general, senior congressional leaders and selected committee chairmen quietly met with FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein at a secure location in the basement of the Capitol. At issue was Justice and FBI’s continuing defiance of congressional subpoenas. At the top of this list is the demand from the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence for documents about why and...

    Former Assistant Watergate special prosecutor Jill Wine-Banks contends that “Trump’s repeated public assertions of innocence, by themselves, constitute a clear intent to obstruct the investigation being carried out by Special Prosecutor Mueller. When you add his characterization of the investigation as a ‘witch hunt’ I think we have a ‘slam dunk’ case of attempted intimidation and Mueller should proceed to an indictment of the President without even interviewing him.” Wine-Banks also cited Trump’s tweets lamenting his appointment of Jeff Session as Attorney General as “further evidence of improper intervention in the process aimed at removing him from office. Sessions has...

    At some point, one starts to feel sorry for House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. After all, being asked over and over again about the same fringe issue has got to be a bit of a soul-crushing experience for someone who’s supposedly focused on winning back the House. On Wednesday, during a town hall event hosted by CNN, the California congresswoman was asked again to comment on her Democratic colleagues’ efforts to impeach President Trump. “The issue of impeachment keeps coming out of the mouths of Democrats,” said CNN’s Chris Cuomo. “And a recent poll shows that more than...

    Left-wing activist Tom Steyer is blasting House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and top Democrats for not supporting impeachment, claiming that Democrats are complicit in “normalizing” President Donald Trump. He even compared his impeachment movement to the 1960s civil rights movement. “The Founders gave us impeachment to answer a reckless, lawless, and dangerous president and every day that his behavior is accepted, every day that you don’t oppose it, it becomes enshrined as the way things are done. You have normalized this presidency, you have normalized his behavior,” Steyer said in a Tuesday Politico interview. “And then at the end...

    Liberals will be shocked to hear this. Yes, I finally agree. You’ve won over Wayne Root with evidence and common sense. It’s time to impeach the president. However, it’s not President Trump I’m talking about. It’s time to impeach former President Barack Obama. And of course, prosecute him too. Many are starting to come to this conclusion. Tom Fitton, the legal genius behind Judicial Watch (the number one government watchdog in America), has come to the same conclusion. Fitton said this week that amidst a climate of impeachment fervor, the actual evidence points to Obama’s actions warranting impeachment far more...
