    President Trump praised Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., for her performance Friday at an impeachment hearing, where she asked effective questions of former Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch and battled with House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif. Stefanik took some public swipes at Schiff mocking him at Friday's impeachment hearing by reading old tweets from when the House Intelligence Committee chairman vowed to have the Ukraine whistleblower testify before his panel. The two also clashed over House procedures. “A new Republican Star is born. Great going @EliseStefanik!” Trump tweeted, retweeting a video clip of the 35-year-old congresswoman questioning Yovanovitch. [POTUS...
  • The “Coup, Klutz, Klan” Witch-Hunt versus Trump

    Root for America ^ | November 13, 2019 | Wayne Allyn Root
    I have a new name for this witch-hunt versus Trump: “Coup, Klutz, Klan” in honor of the architects Pelosi, Schiff and Nadler. The case against Trump is falling apart by the minute. All the participants are being outed as Democrats, Trump haters, and Deep State/DC Swamp denizens with a goal of removing Trump from office. Talk about “conflict of interest.” But before I pick apart the case against Trump, let’s take a look at why it’s happening in the first place. It’s simple. Democrats can’t beat Trump. And they know it. On Thursday, Trump hit 50% approval in Rasmussen’s poll....
  • Shifty Schiff: Biggest Threat to Democracy 'Comes From a President Without an Ethical Compass'

    11/16/2019 2:03:51 PM PST · by jazusamo · 70 replies ^ | November 16, 2019 | Beth Baumann
    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) told members of the California Democratic Party that "democracy in America" is being threatened "from within, from a president without an ethical compass," a clear swipe at President Donald Trump. It's hilarious that Adam Schiff, of all people, is going to make such a ridiculous statement. For one, America is a Republic, not a Democracy. That's history 101. But then again, look at who we're talking about. Schiff thinks Trump lacks an "ethical compass." That's rich coming from a guy who spent two years telling the country President Trump colluded with Russia. We...

    Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump is dishonest about a whole lot of things. But he is rarely as comprehensively dishonest as he has been about his dealings with Ukraine and the impeachment inquiry they have triggered. Relentless deceit has seemed to be his primary defense strategy in the court of public opinion. Trump has made false claims about almost every separate component of the story, from his July phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to the whistleblower who complained about the call to Democrats' impeachment inquiry hearings. The President is dissembling about so many different topics at once that it...

    It didn’t take long at Friday’s impeachment hearing before Rep. Elise Stefanik, the House Intelligence Committee’s only Republican woman, was gaveled down by the panel’s Democratic chairman. Republicans kept the 35-year-old Harvard graduate from upstate New York in the spotlight all day. Among other things, they gave her a prominent slot to question the day’s witness, former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, even though Stefanik ranks only seventh among the committee’s nine Republicans. “We know clearly you’re going to interrupt us throughout this hearing,” Stefanik complained within minutes of Friday’s opening gavel. Though she was breaking committee rules with...

Trump. Full statement below as prepared:In 2014, Russia invaded a United States ally, Ukraine, to reverse that nation’s embrace of the West, and to fulfill Vladimir Putin’s desire to rebuild a Russian empire.

    After the Democrats' bogus impeachment hearing with Ambassador Bill Taylor on Wednesday, former United States Solicitor General Ken Starr told Fox News' Bret Bair that "no crime was proven today." “The members were very strong. I think the members overall acquitted themselves extremely well on both sides of the aisle. The quality of the questioning was extremely high for the most part," he said. "One key thing, the Republicans not only are rock solid, so that means if this trend continues, there is no hope for impeachment, for the conviction of the House — I mean, in the Senate." But...

    Democratic Illinois Rep. Mike Quigley claimed during Wednesday’s impeachment hearing that hearsay could be better than direct evidence. Quigley, while questioning Deputy Asst. Secretary of State George Kent and acting Ambassador to Ukraine Bill Taylor attempted to make the case that their impressions of secondhand information could potentially be more valuable than direct evidence of what had occurred. “I guess to close, a primer on hearsay, I think the American public needs to be reminded that countless people have been convicted on hearsay,” Quigley said. “Because the courts have routinely allowed and created, needed exceptions to hearsay. Hearsay can be...

    The same networks working to protect the identity of a leaker that may or may not be ‘Eric C’ with respect to impeachment, they are DESPERATE to ‘out’ their own whistleblower. It seems a little bit ethically dishonest, doesn’t it? Someone can release information intended to be damaging to the President without any fear of contradiction or scrutiny, but ABC has already reached out to another network to request the firing of someone ABC had assumed was the whistleblower. The person they had fired maintained her innocence and that was upheld by Project Veritas itself, who published a message sent...

    Full title: Schiff Threatens Republicans: Don't Criticize the Whistleblower During Public Impeachment Hearings or Else House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff is threatening Republican lawmakers ahead of the first public impeachment inquiry hearing on Wednesday and warning that any criticism of the whistleblower could prompt an Ethics Committee investigation. Schiff is also going out of his way to protect the Biden's from scrutiny. "As explained in my November 9, 2019, response to the Ranking Member, it is important to underscore that the House's impeachment inquiry, and the Committee, will not serve as venues for any Member to further the same...

    Full title: Gregg Jarrett: The Trump impeachment inquiry is already in big trouble. Here's who Democrats have to thankThe clown show known as an "impeachment inquiry" is getting more comical and hapless by the day. Consider the latest remark from the circus master himself, California Rep. Adam Schiff, (think Bozo, not Pennywise). The Democratic chairman of the House Intelligence Committee says he doesn’t want Republicans turning the impeachment proceedings into a “sham.” The hilarious irony is lost on no one. Schiff has already managed to accomplish it all on his own. At first, Schiff wanted the faux “whistleblower” who triggered...

    White House acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney plans to file his own lawsuit over testimony in the House impeachment inquiry, withdrawing his bid to join a separate case filed last month by a former Trump adviser, his attorneys said Monday. The plans were revealed in a court filing in which Mulvaney abandoned his earlier request to become part of a suit by Charles Kupperman, President Donald Trump’s former deputy national security adviser. Lawyers for Mulvaney had asked Friday evening to join that lawsuit, saying his case presented similar legal issues to that of Kupperman. But they switched course following...

    The New York Times on Thursday covered U.S. Army Lt. Col. Jim Hickman’s explosive allegations against Democrat “star witness” Lt. Col. Alexander S. Vindman by casting aspersions on Hickman’s character. Last week, Hickman divulged on Twitter that Vindman “really talked up” President Barack Obama and ridiculed America and Americans in front of Russian military officers when Hickman worked with him in Grafenwoher, Germany in 2013. Hickman said that he “verbally reprimanded” then-Major Vindman after he heard some of his derisive remarks for himself. “Do not let the uniform fool you,” Hickman wrote. “He is a political activist in uniform.” The...

    Curious indeed. Yesterday, House Democrats poo-poohed the idea of going through the subpoena process to get John Bolton’s testimony, claiming that they didn’t want to play Donald Trump’s delaying game. Overnight, however, NBC News reports that they now have subpoenaed Mick Mulvaney, even though it’s clear he won’t show without a court order either: The House Intelligence Committee has subpoenaed acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney to testify Friday as part of the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, an official working on the probe told NBC News.Mulvaney, one of the highest-ranking officials subpoenaed in the inquiry...

    The partisan impeachment inquiry against Donald Trump is little more than the Democrats' latest attempt to gain what has always been the object of their party's desire: political power. To the end of obtaining power, the Democratic Party has supported every tyrannical and immoral policy — from slavery to confiscatory taxation to abortion — presented in the political domain over the past two hundred years. Paraphrasing Vince Lombardi: For the Democrats, power isn't everything; it's the only thing. Aiding and abetting this impeachment process are the mainstream media, whose portrayal of the Democratic primary candidates as the cool cats from...

    Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said Republicans must justify the relevance of witnesses they want to call in public hearings as part of the impeachment inquiry into President Trump. Schiff in a letter to Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), the ranking member of the panel, late Wednesday outlined questions that will be used to weigh whether a witness's testimony would be germane. Among the questions are whether President Trump requested “that a foreign leader and government initiate investigations to benefit the President’s personal political interests” and if he sought to use his office “to apply...

    n recent days, President Trump and his allies have amplified their calls for the whistleblower who sparked the impeachment inquiry to be identified, presenting the question of whether it would be a crime for the president to unmask the anonymous whistleblower. According to four former top federal government officials who worked in intelligence and national security, the answer is no. "If Trump thinks he knows the name, he can come out and say it, and he's probably as protected as anyone is," said Robert Litt, former general counsel for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence under President Barack...

    President Trump on Thursday called for Joe Biden and his son Hunter to testify as the president sought to deflect allegations of wrongdoing in Ukraine toward the Democratic presidential candidate. Trump parroted a quote from Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) asking what Hunter Biden does to earn money, tweeting that it was a "very good question." "He and Sleepy Joe must testify!" Trump tweeted, using a nickname to refer to the former vice president. Neither of the Bidens are likely to testify in the House impeachment inquiry. While Republicans have the power to request a subpoena of witnesses, those requests are...
