  • Al Green Hints He’ll Move to Impeach Trump for ‘Bigotry’

    Rep. Al Green (D-TX) on Tuesday suggested that he will soon bring articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump for “bigotry.” While prominent Democrats have tiptoed around the question of whether Trump should be impeached before Special Counsel Robert Mueller finishes his investigation, Green said there are plenty of other reasons to impeach Trump, including Trump’s “bigotry.” “I am here to say without question, reservation, or hesitation that we should not allow ourselves to get back to bigotry as usual,” Green said on the House floor. “There seems to be a desire to avoid the question of bigotry, to avoid...

  • Trump campaign finance violation would 'certainly' be impeachable offense, top Dem says

    The top Democrat expected to lead the House Judiciary Committee next month claimed on Sunday that if President Trump broke campaign finance laws by arranging hush-money payments to mistresses, he would have committed "impeachable offenses ... in the service of fraudulently obtaining the office." The comments by Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., on CNN's "State of the Union" were striking in part because the 71-year-old congressman was on the Judiciary Committee when it voted to impeach former President Bill Clinton, which Nadler said at the time was tantamount to an attempted coup and a gross abuse of the impeachment power. The...

    Let's start with the domestic front of the Russia hoax. Sundance at Conservative Tree House has an excellent post up: "President Trump and DAG Rod Rosenstein - "No Collusion", No Immediate Worries..." The overall theme is one that's dear to Sundance's heart: leverage.-snip- There is now a concrete storyline backed by irrefutable evidence: The FBI allowed itself to take political opposition research created by one party to defeat another in an election, treated it like actionable intelligence, presented it to the court as substantiated, and then used it to justify spying on an adviser for the campaign of that party's...

    The best way to Impeach Obama is to ignore him and for deplorables to take up the song, ‘This Is Our Battle, This Is Our Song.’ That was Barack Hussein Obama’s “Resistance” creating the unhinged ruckus on the steps of the Capitol and pitching hissy-fit screeches from the gallery as votes were called on the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court confirmation yesterday. It was a raucous scene forced on the masses whether wanted it or not.

    During an appearance on MSNBC Monday, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) urged fellow Democrat lawmakers to make efforts to impeach President Donald Trump a central issue. A partial transcript follows: DAVID GURA: You’ve had a couple of days to consider what happened on Tuesday of this week, just to pivot to another subject here. That being what happened in a federal courtroom outside of Washington, D.C. in Alexandria, what happened in New York, as well. Michael Cohen plead guilty to some campaign finance violations, among other things. I want to read a little bit from your statement you issued after those...

    Actor-comedian Patton Oswalt has posted an essay urging readers to sign a petition to impeach Donald Trump. The Justified actor and stand-up wrote an article for McSweeney’s where he blasts the president and said it’s up to voters to rise up make their voices heard because “help isn’t coming.” “Cooler heads do not prevail,” Oswalt wrote of what he dubbed “Trump’s Casino-Buffet Presidency” in the wake of rising impeachment chatter. “There is no firm, guiding hand on the tiller of statecraft, the economy, diplomacy, or infrastructure,” he continued. “There is puerile, adolescent emotion and momentary libidinal pleasure. And the rest...

    <p>Many voters express frustration that Congress is paralyzed, but what action are people demanding? History has taught us that going after sitting presidents for “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors” has not brought about conviction in the Senate. Most recently, the attempts to remove Presidents Nixon and Clinton from office directly contributed to today’s divisiveness. What might a Trump indictment or impeachment do to the country?</p>

    Homeland Security is preparing to release dozens of immigrant parents from custody this week in order to reunite them with their young children, blaming a judge’s deadline for forcing them to reimpose the catch-and-release policy the Trump administration was trying to end. Government lawyers went to court last week to suggest they wouldn’t be able to meet the strict deadlines and go through all of the checks they usually do to make sure they’re releasing children to safe situations. “There’s always going to be a tension between a faster release and a safe release,” said Sarah B. Fabian, a Justice...

    A federal judge upheld most of California’s new sanctuary laws Thursday, but did rule the state went too far when it ordered businesses not to grant access to the Border Patrol or deportation officers. Judge John A. Mendez, a Bush appointee to the court, said the state does not have to turn over illegal immigrants and can refuse to cooperate with federal agents, as long as it still allows local police to share information. And he ruled that California has the right to perform inspections on any facility that holds illegal immigrants in the state.

    Rep. Maxine Waters spoke at an immigration rally over the weekend in California where she responded to folks giving her threats after she called for the continued harassment of individuals within the Trump administration, something she doesn’t feel an an ounce of regret for. Apparently Waters is shaking off the various threats that were made against her and has doubled down on her rhetoric about wanting to see President Trump impeached and removed from office. It seems Waters mistakenly thinks that an impeachment is the same as being booted from office, but this is not so. Former President Bill Clinton...

    Black Caucus DEM Al Green bragged on Tuesday on CSPAN’s “Washington Journal” that if his party takes the House in November, Trump’s impeachment would be a good likelihood. Green dixit: “This is not something the Constitution has bestowed upon leadership. It’s something every member has the right and privilege of doing. I am not sure that there will be members who are going to wait for someone else if that someone else, doesn’t matter who it is, is declining to do it.” Here’s the video with the IQ of 80 speaking to the American voters.
