    Schumer Whiffs Impeachment

    “An old Beltway joke is that the most dangerous place in Washington is between Chuck Schumer and a TV camera. After Week One of the Trump impeachment trial, that deserves modification: The most dangerous place for Democrats is Chuck Schumer in front of a TV camera,” Kimberly Strassel writes in The Wall Street Journal.

    “In fairness, Mr. Schumer was handed the weakest impeachment case in U.S. history. He began this exercise facing 53 Republican senators who spent months watching the most liberal House Democrats use secret hearings, leaked transcripts and strong-arm tactics to produce two vague and legally dubious articles of impeachment.”

    Democrats are demanding new documents and witnesses for the Senate trial—“even ones Democrats didn’t call for in the House. Democrats don’t seem to realize that they’re complaining that their own articles of impeachment are flimsy, lacking in substance, and failing to sway the American people or any objective senators,” Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) writes for Fox News.
    Millions of Americans are already changing the channel on impeachment—literally. According to Nielsen data, as Democrats began making their arguments Wednesday, ratings plummeted by 19 percent and lost over 2 million TV viewers from Tuesday’s procedural debates, Helen Coster reports for Reuters.
    “Americans' confidence in the U.S. economy is higher than at any point in about two decades.” The surging optimism “likely reflects the U.S. unemployment rate's continued stay at a 50-year low. Meanwhile, the Dow Jones Industrial Average continues to reach record highs -- and flirts with reaching the 30,000 marker,” Justin McCarthy writes for Gallup.

    NYTimes Quashed Story About 2016 WH Meeting With 'Whistleblower' & Ukrainians On Burisma: Report



    "...the subjects discussed included efforts within the US government to support prosecutions, in Ukraine and the UK, of Burisma Holdings... and concerns that Hunter Biden’s position with the company could complicate such efforts."

    Lead House impeachment manager Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) argued less than a year ago in the Washington Post that a president had a duty to investigate a candidate from the rival party if he was suspected of foreign corruption.
    Schiff, reacting to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on “Russia collusion,” justified the Barack Obama administration’s counterintelligence investigation of the Trump campaign, and said Mueller should have included it.
    Schiff wrote that investigating a potential president — even from the opposition — was an urgent matter of national security if there were reason to believe that candidate were working for, or beholden to, a foreign country.
    He wrote (emphasis added):
    Counterintelligence investigations differ from criminal investigations in their means, scope and ultimate disposition. Their goal is not successful prosecutions, but to identify and mitigate threats to national security. If a foreign power possessed compromising information on a U.S. government official in a position of influence, that is a counterintelligence risk. If a foreign power possessed leverage, or the perception of it, over the president, that is a counterintelligence nightmare.
    Schiff added that the public deserved to see the material that the FBI found on the Trump campaign. (We know today that the FBI lied to the FISA court to obtain surveillance warrants on a Trump aide.)
    Today, Schiff and the Democrats are arguing that it is an impeachable offense for a president to investigate foreign corruption by a potential president from the opposition — even when, as in the Bidens’ case, former Vice President Joe Biden had a clear conflict of interest while his son, Hunter, was on the board of Ukrainian company Burisma.
    According to Schiff just last April, it is not an impeachable offense, but an urgent matter of national security for a president to investigate his potential successor.
    It is the president’s duty. That is, unless the president is Donald J. Trump.

    Joni Ernst: Several House Impeachment Managers Voted Against ‘Lethal Aid’ to Ukraine

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hz7N08_oTHI

    Jan 23, 2020


    Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA), who has a long-standing interest in Ukraine, noted during a break in the Senate impeachment trial that many of the House Democrat impeachment managers now arguing that President Donald Trump should be removed for a temporary hold on aid to Ukraine voted against it themselves. She also noted that Trump, unlike President Barack Obama and the Democrats, gave Ukraine “lethal aid” to defend itself from Russia.

    Potentially more bad news for GOPA wing neocons investments in US politics:



    Susan Collins signals she will vote for witnesses in Trump impeachment trial

    By Mark Moore
    January 27, 2020
    GOP Sen. Mitt Romney said Monday it’s “increasingly apparent” that more Republican senators will support calling witnesses in President Trump’s impeachment trial following revelations about Ukraine in former national security adviser John Bolton’s book.
    “It’s pretty fair to say John Bolton has relevant testimony,” Romney (R-Utah) told reporters. “I think it’s increasingly likely that other Republicans will join those of us who think we should hear from John Bolton.”
    Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) said in a statement on Twitter she was “likely to vote to call witnesses” and that the “reports about John Bolton’s book strengthen the case for witnesses and have prompted a number of conversations among my colleagues.”
