    (CNN)Neither President Donald Trump nor his attorneys will participate in Wednesday's House Judiciary Committee impeachment hearing, they said late Sunday. In a letter to Chairman Jerrold Nadler, White House counsel to the President Pat Cipollone said, "We cannot fairly be expected to participate in a hearing while the witnesses are yet to be named and while it remains unclear whether the Judiciary Committee will afford the President a fair process through additional hearings. More importantly, an invitation to an academic discussion with law professors does not begin to provide the President with an semblance of a fair process.  MORE AT...

    Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., said Republicans will call Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., who’s heading up the Democratic Party’s “sham” impeachment inquiry as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, as a fact witness. In an appearance on Fox Business Network’s “Lou Dobbs Tonight,” Gaetz continued his efforts to push back on the opposition party’s secret impeachment proceedings taking place in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, slamming the process as “totally antithetical to our constitutional principles.” “The one mistake they’ve made — and I don’t know if they know this yet — Adam Schiff has now made himself a fact witness...

    The Hill ^ | July 11, 2019 | Morgan Chalfant, Olivia Beavers
    Drama is building ahead of former special counsel Robert Mueller’s much-anticipated testimony on Capitol Hill. Democrats are working to solidify their strategy to effectively question Mueller in the limited time they have. Democrats say their plans are still in flux and that they’re still negotiating with Mueller and his team over the logistics of the appearance. As of Thursday, Mueller’s testimony was set to be capped at roughly two hours per committee. Under the current agreement, all 22 members of the Intelligence panel will get a question, as will 22 members of the 41-person Judiciary Committee. Those questions will be...

    What a colossal waste of time Wednesday was for the American taxpayer and former White House communications director Hope Hicks. President Trump's former right-hand lady testified before the House Judiciary Committee behind closed doors relating to special counsel Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, but apparently, she declined to answer a variety of questions related to her tenure in the White House. This was expected and it was not exactly clear what the House Judiciary Committee was expecting to get out of Hicks and her team of lawyers besides one or two quotes they could use for...

    Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee is reportedly resigning as chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation and as chair of a congressional subcommittee amid allegations she retaliated against a former staffer who claimed she was raped by a foundation supervisor. Both BuzzFeed and The New York Times report Jackson Lee will leave as chair of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, a non-profit group closely aligned with the Congressional Black Caucus. She will also leave her position temporarily as chair of a House Judiciary subcommittee.

    Camille Paglia is a rare bird: A liberal who’s not afraid to tell the truth about liberals. In a recent Q & A with Spectator USA, Paglia sounded off about a variety of topics, including the likely class of 2020 Democratic presidential candidates. And let’s just say she didn’t mince words: "If the economy continues strong, Trump will be reelected. The Democrats (my party) have been in chaos since the 2016 election and have no coherent message except Trump hatred. Despite the vast pack of potential candidates, no one yet seems to have the edge. I had high hopes for...

    According to lawsuit, longtime Harris aide demeaned his executive assistant Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., expressed surprise and frustration when reports first surfaced last week that a longtime aide had settled allegations of gender discrimination last year — attributing her lack of awareness to a “breakdown” in communication. But the California Department of Justice received notification of the suit three months before Harris left her position as state attorney general, according to a new report. According to a lawsuit, Harris confidante Larry Wallace demeaned and retaliated against Danielle Hartley when she worked as his executive assistant at the state Department of...

    [snip] So the GOP is going to allow the Democrats to keep all their current seats on the Judiciary Committee in exchange for expanding the panel and adding another Republican. Mitch McConnell must have signed off on this agreement, but why? It’s already a very sizable committee and the Republicans aren’t worried about elevating any possible POTUS contenders at this stage. Why would Cocaine Mitch be throwing a bone to the Democrats now?

    It is evident that Kamala Harris and Larry Wallace have closely intertwined careers It is no secret that U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris has her eye on a run for the Presidency in 2020. Yet Larry Wallace, a senior staffer for Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) reportedly resigned on Wednesday over the discovery he was involved in a sexual harassment lawsuit and $400,000 payout to the victim while working for then California Attorney General Kamala Harris. And Kamala Harris claims to know nothing of this. Sen. Harris’s spokeswoman claims Harris has no knowledge of allegations of sexual harassment against her top aid—a...

    MeToo loudmouth and Bay Area Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris of California has gotten herself into yet another scrap, this one claiming she knew nothing about a $400,000 payoff for a sexual harassment case brought on by one of her top staffers. How very ironic, given how she stuck it to spotless Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh over sex harassment phony claims during his confirmation hearings and tried to make herself the figurehead for being sterling tough against sex harassment. The hypocrisy is thick. According to Fox News : A senior adviser to U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., resigned...

    An aide to California Sen. Kamala Harris (D) resigned Wednesday after his involvement in a settled harassment case was uncovered by a local newspaper. The Sacramento Bee reported Wednesday that Harris's office confirmed the resignation of Larry Wallace, the senator's senior adviser, after the Bee contacted Harris's office with questions related to Wallace's conduct at California's state Department of Justice. According to a lawsuit uncovered by the newspaper, Wallace was named in a 2016 harassment case that was settled last year after a woman who previously worked as his executive assistant said that the former state official "harassed and demeaned"...

    Kamala Harris (aka Kamel Hump & Harass) is famous for her pompous way of asking questions in Senate hearings. So I scanned Google Images to find a picture of Harris to turn into a meme.  I soon discovered a couple of interesting facts: It's hard to find a picture of Harris standing in a group.  You can find endless pictures of her sitting behind a desk or standing behind a lectern.  Then I looked it up and discovered that she and Chuck Todd could be twins because they are both 5 foot 2 inches tall.  So this is why she...

    Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris of California announced on Saturday that she will make a decision about whether she will launch a presidential bid in 2020 by the end of this year. “It’s a very serious decision,” Harris told “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski during an onstage conversation at the Know Your Value conference in San Francisco. “Over the holiday, I will make that decision with my family.” Harris, whose husband joined her in the audience, said she is keenly aware of the challenges a barrier-breaking campaign will entail. “Let’s be honest. It’s going to be ugly,” Harris said. “When you...

    Liberals are preparing for Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris’s possible expulsion from the Senate Judiciary Committee by highlighting she is a black woman. In the event that Republican Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith wins the Mississippi runoff election on Nov. 27, the makeup of the Senate Judiciary Committee will shift in favor of the GOP, with a seat currently held by a Democrat flipping red. Consequently, Harris, the most junior Democratic member of the committee, will likely be squeezed out. “Not only would it be unconscionable to remove the only African American woman from the committee, but Senator Harris also is the most...

    Democrat Kamala Harris could be kicked off the Senate Judiciary Committee as Senate Republicans consider reducing the size of the 21-member committee ahead of the transition to the new Congress. Harris could be booted because the first-term senator is the Senate Judiciary Committee’s most junior member, Fox News reported. Predictably, Harris is fighting the move because it provides a high-profile stage for her showboating antics ahead of her rumored 2020 presidential run. Democrats are negotiating with Republicans to keep the committee at 21 members, or are trying to convince a more-senior Democrat to step down so Harris could take their...

    Reducing the size of the 21-member Senate Judiciary Committee is reportedly among the actions being considered by Senate Republicans as they prepare for the next Congress. If that happens, Sen. Kamala Harris of California -- a high-profile Democrat who is considered a possible candidate for her party’s 2020 presidential nomination -- could be left off the panel, according to a report.
