McConnell: There is “Zero Chance” That the President Will Be Removed From Office


It’s about time to go on offense with this. Your president didn’t do it. Your president is not guilty. They don’t have a shred of evidence. They don’t have one bit of evidence. They never have had, on any of the allegations they’ve made. So I’m begging you people in the Senate, do not go into this defensive at all. Do not go into this trying to limit the criticism. Do not go into this hoping that they will think what you’ve done is fair.

They’re incapable of being aboveboard and honest about this. You are going to be accused of hatemongering like you are every day no matter what you do here. So the focus needs to be on the result that is the most hurtful and damaging to them and at the same time most helpful to Trump and the Republican Party ’cause this is political. This is a pure political move. – Rush Limbaugh, 12/12/19

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., told Fox News Thursday night that he will coordinate the defense of President Trump in any impeachment trial with White House lawyers, and proclaimed that there was “zero chance” the president would be removed from office.

“The case is so darn weak coming over from the House. We all know how it’s going to end,” McConnell said on “Hannity” “There is no chance the president is going to be removed from office.”

McConnell also said he hoped that none of the members of his caucus would vote to remove the president from office, adding “it wouldn’t surprise me if we got one or two Democrats” to vote to acquit Trump of the charges of high crimes and misdemeanors.

He explained that the articles of impeachment would be different from ordinary legislation that makes its way from the Senate to the House, in that: “We have no choice but to take it up. But we’ll be working through this process hopefully in a fairly short period of time, in total coordination with the White House counsel’s office and the people who are representing the president, in the way all of the Senate.”

McConnell spoke as the House Judiciary Committee prepared to vote to send two articles of impeachment to the full House of Representatives following a marathon hearing in which seemingly no topic — from Hunter Biden’s rampant drug use to a Republican congressman’s past drunken-driving arrest — was off-limits.

It remained unclear how long the markup would last, although Fox News is told it could go until well after midnight ET.

The majority leader declined to elaborate on what a Senate trial might look like or whether Republicans would call witnesses such as former Vice President Joe Biden, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., or the intelligence community whistleblower whose complaint about Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky touched off the impeachment inquiry.

“I’m going to take my cues from the president’s lawyers,” said McConnell, who added that a trial would likely take place early next year if the House voted to impeach Trump before its members went home for the holidays.

“My hope is that it will be a shorter process rather than a long, lengthy process.”

So, you have McConnell saying that there will be a trial and there will be witnesses if the President and his counsel want to call them

Lindsey Graham said yesterday that he wans to just dismiss the Impeachment and get it over with for the country’s sake.

Uh huh.

Senator Graham has been showing a lot of spunk since the passing of Sen. John McCain, his mentor.

I’m wondering if Sen. Graham does not want to go through a trial because, having been in the Senate for several years, some of his friends across the aisle may be connected to shady deals in the Ukraine just like the Bidens are.

Sleepy Joe has already boasted that he would not honor a subpoena to testify in an Impeachment Trial in the Senate.

Fat chance of that.

That is going to be a “Command Performance”.

Yesterday, you could hear the House Democrats in the Judiciary Committee’s Sphincters slam shut when Rep. Matt Gaetz brought up Hunter Biden’s drug abuse.

They all know that Hunter and his Dad are the keys to exposing a huge scandal involving the Democrats and Ukraine.

One of President Trump’s Campaign Promises was to “clean out the Swamp” in Washington.

All of the actions taken by the Democratic Establishment and the Deep State against Candidate and President Trump to stop him from winning the Presidency and then to end his Presidency were because of the Dems’ hatred for him which is based in fear.

The Democrats are deathly afraid that their unmitigated corruption involving the way that they have become millionaires while in office will be exposed for every American to see.

It has not just been through “investments”, like Nancy Pelosi and her husband’s real estate dealings in California.

Like in the case of The Clinton Foundation Pay for Play Operation and the Biden Burisma Scandal, some of it has involved our Foreign Policy.

And, that puts the entire nation at risk and it MUST be addressed.

WH Counsel Sends Letter to Dems Telling Them to Go Jump, Pelosi Accuses Trump of Acting “Above The Law”…Irony is Embarrassed

six-ways-dt-600 reports that

The White House outlined in a defiant eight-page letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and top Democrats on Tuesday why it will not participate in their “illegitimate and unconstitutional” impeachment inquiry, charging that the proceedings have run roughshod over congressional norms and the president’s due-process rights.

Trump administration officials called the letter, which was written by White House counsel Pat Cipollone and obtained by Fox News, perhaps the most historic letter the White House has sent. The document tees up a head-on collision with Democrats in Congress, who have fired off a slew of subpoenas in recent days concerning the president’s alleged effort to get Ukraine to investigate political foe Joe Biden during a July phone callwith Ukraine’s leader.

“President Trump and his administration reject your baseless, unconstitutional efforts to overturn the democratic process,” the letter stated. “Your unprecedented actions have left the president with no choice. In order to fulfill his duties to the American people, the Constitution, the Executive Branch, and all future occupants of the Office of the Presidency, President Trump and his administration cannot participate in your partisan and unconstitutional inquiry under these circumstances.”

The document concluded: “The president has a country to lead. The American people elected him to do this job, and he remains focused on fulfilling his promises to the American people.”

Responding to the letter, Pelosi accused Trump of “trying to make lawlessness a virtue” and added, “The American people have already heard the President’s own words – ‘do us a favor, though.’” (That line, from a transcript of Trump’s call with Ukraine’s leader, in reality referred to Trump’s request for Ukraine to assist in an investigation into 2016 election interference, and did not relate to Biden.)

Pelosi continued: “This letter is manifestly wrong, and is simply another unlawful attempt to hide the facts of the Trump Administration’s brazen efforts to pressure foreign powers to intervene in the 2020 elections. … The White House should be warned that continued efforts to hide the truth of the President’s abuse of power from the American people will be regarded as further evidence of obstruction. Mr. President, you are not above the law.  You will be held accountable.”

Substantively, the White House first noted in its letter that there has not been a formal vote in the House to open an impeachment inquiry — and that the news conference held by Pelosi last month was insufficient to commence the proceedings.

“In the history of our nation, the House of Representatives has never attempted to launch an impeachment inquiry against the president without a majority of the House taking political accountability for that decision by voting to authorize such a dramatic constitutional step,” the letter stated.

It continued: “Without waiting to see what was actually said on the call, a press conference was held announcing an ‘impeachment inquiry’ based on falsehoods and misinformation about the call.”

Despite Pelosi’s claim that there was no “House precedent that the whole House vote before proceeding with an impeachment inquiry,” several previous impeachment inquiries have been launched only by a full vote of the House — including the impeachment proceedings concerning former Presidents Andrew Johnson, Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton.

White House officials told Fox News the vote opening the proceedings was a small ask, considering the implications of potentially overturning a national election.

The letter went on to note that “information has recently come to light that the whistleblower” who first flagged Trump’s call with Ukraine’s president “had contact with [House Intelligence Committee] Chairman [Adam] Schiff’s office before filing the complaint.”

And Schiff’s “initial denial of such contact caused The Washington Post to conclude that Chairman Schiff “clearly made a statement that was false,” the letter observed.

Multiple reports surfaced this week that the whistleblower had a prior “professional relationship” with one of the 2020 Democratic candidates for president. On Friday, lawyers for the whistleblower did not respond to questions from Fox News about the whistleblower’s possible previous relationship with any currently prominent Democrat.

The letter added: “In any event, the American people understand that Chairman Schiff cannot covertly assist with the submission of a complaint, mislead the public about his involvement, read a counterfeit version of the call to the American people, and then pretend to sit in judgment as a neutral ‘investigator.'”

The White House was dinging Schiff for reciting a fictional version of Trump’s call with Ukraine’s leader during a congressional hearing. Schiff later called his statements a “parody.”

“Perhaps the best evidence that there was no wrongdoing on the call is the fact that, after the actual record of the call was released, Chairman Schiff chose to concoct a false version of the call and to read his made-up transcript to the American people at a public hearing,” the letter stated. “The chairman’s action only further undermines the public’s confidence in the fairness of any inquiry before his committee.”

Ukraine’s president has said he felt Trump did nothing improperin their July call, and DOJ lawyers who reviewed the call said they found no laws had been broken. The White House released a transcript of the conversation last month, as well as the whistleblower’s complaint, which seemingly relied entirely on second-hand information.

Separately, the letter asserted multiple alleged violations of the president’s due-process rights. It noted that under current impeachment inquiry proceedings, Democrats were not allowing presidential or State Department counsel to be present.

Democrats’ procedures did not provide for the “disclosure of all evidence favorable to the president and all evidence bearing on the credibility of witnesses called to testify in the inquiry,” the letter noted, nor did the procedures afford the president “the right to see all evidence, to present evidence, to call witnesses, to have counsel present at all hearings, to cross-examine all witnesses, to make objections relating to the examination of witnesses or the admissibility of testimony and evidence, and to respond to evidence and testimony.”

Democrats also have not permitted Republicans in the minority to issue subpoenas, contradicting the “standard, bipartisan practice in all recent resolutions authorizing presidential impeachment inquiries.”

During the time before the Political Primaries and leading up to the 2016 Presidential Election, I marveled at the tone-deafness of the Democratic Party in announcing their mission to continue the poorly-executed and poorly-received foreign and domestic policies of the outgoing President, Barack Hussein Obama.

It was as if they truly believed that our entire Sovereign Nation, except for the Nation’s Capitol and the East and Left Coasts were filled with imbeciles who were born to be subservient to them and who all believed that the Democrats were indeed “the smartest people in the room”.

The Democrats’ monumental arrogance and self-isolation lead them to severely overestimate their own intelligence and severely underestimate the intelligence of average Americans who lived everywhere else.

Please look up the 2016 Electoral Map for proof of what I am saying.

The election of Citizen Statesman Donald J. Trump as President of the United States of America should have humbled the Far Left Democrats.

At least, it would have, if their bitterness over Clinton’s loss had not turned them into zombie-like ideologues, whose sole purpose since Election Night has been to destroy Donald J. Trump and remove him from the Oval Office by any means necessary.

For Nancy Pelosi to accuse President Trump of being “above the law” while acting purposefully oblivious to all of the corruption within her own party while attempting to impeach a president who has done nothing impeachable, is like watching the late great Ricardo Montalban’s over-the-top performance as the vengeance-driven psychopath Khan in “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan”.

Sometime soon, I expect her to be shouting Trump’s name from the podium, with her eyes glazed over and drool running down the side of her mouth.

Does she and the rest of her cabal expect their now-public coup d’état to be well-received by average Americans…the same citizens whom their last President Candidate referred to as “Deplorables”?

It certainly appears to this Deplorable down here in the Northwest Corner of the Magnolia State that they do.

And, if that is so, that means that the Democrats have experienced what psychiatrists call “a break with reality”.

Or, as we say in Dixie,

“Their cornbread ain’t done in the middle.”
