Kellyanne Conway Just Made Adam Schiff an Offer on Impeachment Testimony

H/T Town Hall.

There is no way Pencil Neck Schiff wants Kellyanne Conway anywhere near his impeachment sham.

Speaking to reporters from the White House Monday morning, Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway offered to testify as a witness in the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry if House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff does the same.

“I’ll tell you what, if Adam Schiff testifies, I’ll show up on behalf of the White House,” Conway said.

At WH, @KellyannePolls says House Judiciary needs to be more definitive about its hearing witnesses, but if @RepAdamSchiff testifies about the impeachment inquiry, she says she’ll show up on behalf of the White House.

Schiff has been called to testify by a number of Republicans on Capitol Hill over his contact with the “whistleblower” who set off this process.

Transparency to the American public is critical to our democracy. Transparency among our colleagues in Congress is also critical to effectively conducting committee work. House Intel rank and file Members had access to whistblower complaint from 4-6:30 pm on Wed September 25th.

🚨 🚨IMPT question – when did Adam Schiff have access to the complaint or any related information? The letter to Schiff and Burr was dated August 12th. Did Schiff have ANY access earlier than Committee & if yes, why did he not immediately share this with his Committee? 🚨🚨

Last week House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler announced another impeachment inquiry hearing, which is set for Wednesday. He invited President Trump and White House officials to testify, but hasn’t laid out the details of who Democrats will be calling to make their case. Further, Nadler issued the invitation Tuesday before Thanksgiving and gave the White House until Sunday to reply.

“The Committee intends this hearing to serve as an opportunity to discuss the historical and constitutional basic of impeachment, as well as the Framers’ intent and understanding of terms like ‘high crimes and misdemeanors.’ We expect to discuss the constitutional framework through which the House may analyze the evidence gathered in the present inquiry. We will also discuss whether your alleged actions warrant the House’s exercising its authority to adopt article of impeachment,” Nadler wrote in a letter to President Trump.

“If you would like to participate in the hearing, please provide the Committee with notice as soon as possible. But no later than by 6:00 pm on December 1, 2019. By that time, I ask that you also indicate who will act as your counsel for these proceedings,” he continued. “While we invite you to this hearing, we remind you that if you continue to refuse to make witnesses and documents available to the committee of jurisdiction…’the chair shall have the discretion to impose appropriate remedies.'”

The White House replied on deadline and will not be sending any participants.

Before leaving for the NATO Summit in in London Monday morning, President Trump called the impeachment inquiry a “hoax.”

“The whole thing is a hoax. Everybody knows it. All you have to do is look at the words of the Ukrainian president that he just issued, and you know it’s a hoax. It’s an absolute disgrace what they’re doing to our country,” he said.

Rob Reiner: ‘White Evangelicals & White Supremacists Made a Pact with Putin’ to Defend Trump from Impeachment

H/T Breitbart.

I never realized until now just how ignorant the meathead really is.

Hollywood director and left-wing activist Rob Reiner took his disdain for President Donald Trump and his supporters to a new level, this time equating elected Republicans and Trump’s supporters to white supremacists who’ve “made a pact with Putin” to protect the president from impeachment.

“Every elected Republican knows that this President is guilty of countless Impeachable offenses. But they, along with many White Evangelicals & White Supremacists have made a pact with Putin,” Rob Reiner said. “But unlike a pact with the Devil, this one can be unsigned.”

Of course the Bucket List director has called President Trump and his supporters racists before.

In July, Reiner said “The President of the United States is a racist. He’s made it abundantly clear his re-election is based on white nationalism. If you support him, there can be no distinction between you being a racist and a racist enabler. They are the same.”

Just a day before belting out his “pact with Putin” tweet, Reiner addressed his social media followers, saying “Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. Now back to Impeaching and Removing the most Criminally Corrupt President in US History.”

And just a day before that missive, Reiner shared with his Twitter followers advice on how to promote impeaching Trump over the Thanksgiving dinner table.

“If someone in your family wants to make Thanksgiving dinner about defending Trump’s high crimes, here’s how you can be prepared,” Rob Reiner said in a tweet that has been deleted. “These are the four key arguments in the case for impeachment and removal. Be ready before you sit.”

Eagle-Eyed Nunes Finds Loophole Clause That Allows GOP To Call Witnesses

H/T Western Journal.

Will Pencil Neck Schiff(Delusional-CA)allow the witnesses?

Rep. Devin Nunes of California and other Republicans may get to call their witnesses in the House impeachment inquiry after all, thanks to a clause cited in a letter signed by nine GOP representatives.

The Thursday letter appears to exploit a loophole in an attempt to bring forward witnesses denied by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff.

The California Democrat previously denied many of Republicans’ witness requests, a power he was granted after a rule change earlier in the month.

According to Nunes’ letter, the newfound clause is “not displaced” by the rule change.

Among other witnesses, the congressman attempted to call the whistleblower and Schiff himself to testify in the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

“Although Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi promised that Democrats would ‘treat the President with fairness,’” Nunes wrote, “you have repeatedly prevented Republicans from fully and fairly examining issues central to the Democrat’s ‘impeachment inquiry.’

“Therefore, pursuant to House Rule XI, Clause 2(j)(1), we, the undersigned Republican Members of the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, exercise our right to convene a hearing with witnesses selected by the Minority to testify in the Democrats’ ‘impeachment inquiry.’”

Kevin McCarthy

@GOPLeader

Chairman Adam Schiff has repeatedly denied fundamental fairness and due process throughout the course of this sham impeachment.

RT if you agree that he should stop blocking important witnesses from testifying.

To wade through the mountain of text that is the House rulebook and find these small clauses absolutely takes an eagle eye.

According to an official copy of the Rules of the House of Representatives, it looks like Nunes is onto something here.

“Whenever a hearing is conducted by a committee on a measure or matter,” House Rule XI, Clause 2(j)(1) states, “the minority members of the committee shall be entitled, upon request to the chair by a majority of them before the completion of the hearing, to call witnesses selected by the minority to testify with respect to that measure or matter during at least one day of hearing thereon.”

If Nunes and his Republican colleagues are right in their gamble, this could mean they get to call their witnesses.

Considering all the damning evidence that seemingly undermines the whistleblower’s report, this could be a move that totally eviscerates the impeachment inquiry against Trump.

Imagine Adam Schiff, called as a witness in a public hearing before the entire nation, answering questions about his involvement with the whistleblower.

The whistleblower himself also could be called, which would shine a much-needed light on the origins of this partisan push to oust the president.

Although it’s unclear if Schiff and fellow Democrats will accept this clause at all, it signals Republicans are keeping up the pressure on an impeachment process that has much of the nation skeptical.

As of now, it’s looking like Democrats’ options to oust Trump are growing slimmer by the day.

New York Independents Oppose Impeachment of Trump, Poll Shows

H/T Breitbart.

What does San Fran Nan(Delusional-CA)and Pencil Neck Schiff(Delusional-CA)think of this poll?

The majority of independent voters in New York oppose the Democrats’ ongoing impeachment effort against President Trump, a Siena College Research Institute poll released this week revealed.

More independents in New York state, which was up until recently President Trump’s home state until he switched his residency to Florida, oppose impeachment than support it, the survey showed.

It was taken November 12-18 among 797 registered voters in New York state, and asked, “Turning now to Washington, based on everything you know right now, do you support or oppose Congress impeaching President Trump and removing him from office?”

According to the survey, 59 percent of independent voters oppose impeachment, and only 37 percent support it. The results along party lines are fairly predictable, with 78 percent of Democrats supporting impeachment and 81 percent of Republicans opposing. Overall, the survey found 52 percent supporting the effort and 44 percent opposing it. Nonetheless, the survey signals a significant shift among independents, particularly.

Polls, released in recent days, have shown a shift in public sentiment. A National Emerson College poll released on Thursday showed opposition to impeachment growing and support falling. Once again, the shift was the most dramatic among independent voters.

As Breitbart News reported:

“Support for impeachment has flipped since October from 48% support with 44% opposing to now 45% opposed and 43% in support,” Emerson found. The greatest shift in opinion occurred among independent voters, who now oppose impeachment 49 percent to 34 percent. Last month, independents supported impeachment 48 percent to 39 percent.

Politico-Morning Consult poll released this week showed similar results, with 47 percent of independents opposing impeachment  – a ten-point increase in one week – and 40 percent supporting it, down from 47 percent.

The Siena College Research Institute poll also asked, “How best would you describe the impeachment inquiry being led by Democrats in the House of Representatives?”

Fifty-one percent of independents described it as a “partisan attack on President Trump,” while 43 percent said it is a “fair investigation.”

Respondents were also asked, “Who do you trust more to tell the American people the truth?” Trump took a slight edge among independents, with 37 choosing him and 36 percent choosing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

The margin of error is +/- 4 percent, making the independent voters’ opposition to impeachment outside of statistical uncertainty.

Poll Shows More Oppose Impeachment than Support It

H/T Breitbart.

The DemocRats are setting up President Trump for landslide reelection and a possible supermajority in both Houses of Congress.

More Americans oppose impeachment than support it, a National Emerson College poll released on Thursday revealed.

The poll, which coincided with the seventh public impeachment hearing in the nation’s capital, found that opposition to the partisan impeachment effort is growing, while support is slipping.

Conducted November 17-20, 2019, among 1,092 registered voters, the poll found that a greater percentage of people now oppose impeachment than support it.

Support for impeachment has flipped since October from 48% support with 44% opposing to now 45% opposed and 43% in support,” Emerson found. The greatest shift in opinion occurred among independent voters, who now oppose impeachment 49 percent to 34 percent. Last month, independents supported impeachment 48 percent to 39 percent.

More via Emerson:

The impeachment hearings are being watched or followed by 69% of voters. A plurality (26%) is getting their information from Fox News, 24% are getting their information from 1 of the 3 network stations (ABC, NBC, CBS), 16% are watching CNN, 15% MSNBC and 19% are going somewhere else for their information.

The margin of error is +/- 2.9 percent.

The results coincide with a Politico-Morning Consult poll released this week, which showed support for impeachment dropping and opposition growing, particularly among independents.

As Breitbart News reported:

The survey was taken November 15-17 among 1,994 registered voters and found that 47 percent of independents actively oppose the impeachment inquiry. This figure is a 10-point increase from last week, as noted by the Hill.

Independent support for the inquiry fell to 40 percent – a seven-point drop.

Overall, support for the inquiry dropped by two points and opposition grew by three points.

Nonetheless, some left-wing politicians, such as Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), believe the public impeachment hearings are actively convincing the American people that “we have a president who thinks he’s above the law.”

“But what I am of the opinion is that the American people now do believe, and the more they see these impeachment hearings on television, they do believe that we have a president who thinks he’s above the law,” Sanders said

We have a president who has engaged in corruption. We have a president who has obstructed justice and, in my view, somebody who’s violated the emoluments clause,” he continued.

“But my inclination is that the American people do believe that this president is in violation of the law,” he added:

 

Rep. Van Drew (D-NJ) Says Dems Are Getting Tired Of Impeachment

H/T The Lid.

This is why I am getting the impression that the impeachment will never get out of the House.

“There is some discussion among some of them quietly, privately of concern, certainly. What I’m hearing out in the street is with most people, they are kind of tired, kind of worn out, bored and they really want to move on. Unless there’s something new and amazing, we know the end game.” Rep. Jeff Van Drew (D-NJ) tired of impeachment

Although the “formal impeachment inquiry” has only been officially a thing for a few weeks, the hope of removing Donald Trump from office has been a staple of the Democratic culture from the moment that the New York businessman completed his inauguration. tired of impeachment

At times, this desire to upend the will of the American people has taken an ugly shape.  We’ve seen calls for incivility from the likes of Maxine Waters, and we’ve seen violence thanks to a former Bernie Sanders campaign worker attempting to murder the GOP charity baseball team.

This “resistance” is but one unit, and allowing the radical left to distance themselves from these instances of anti-Trump behavior will not be tolerated.

Now, with the impeachment inquiry now officially “formal”, you would think that the Democrats could unite under the banner of this process.  Unfortunately for them, this has not been the case and one has gone public.

New Jersey Democratic Representative Jeff Van Drew had the following to say during an appearance on Fox News over the weekend:

MARIA BARTIROMO: We’re expecting an impeachment vote sometime in December. How will you vote?

REP. JEFF VAN DREW: I would imagine I’ll be voting “no.” Now, I always have a codicil if there’s something new, something we haven’t heard, something that really rises to the level of treason or a high crime, that would be different. But we don’t see that. We see little different variations, hearsay, discussions that somebody heard something that somebody else said. Impeachment, as you know, our founding fathers had vigorous debates over whether they would even allow impeachment in the Constitution. You don’t disenfranchise voters, millions upon millions of voters. Voters choose their leaders in America.

BARTIROMO: Are you hearing from some of your colleagues in some of the states that President Trump won that they may also vote “no?” Are you hearing some concerns amongst your colleagues or are you sort of a lone wolf in all of this?

REP. VAN DREW: I don’t know how other folks will vote, because in all honesty, originally, I thought there were going to be a few more, not that it matters to me if I’m one or I’m 101. I do what I believe is right. There is some discussion among some of them quietly, privately, of concern, certainly. What I’m hearing out in the street is with most people is, they’re kind of tired, they’re kind of worn out, they’re kind of bored, most folks, and they really want to move on. Unless there’s something new and amazing, we know the end game here.

Van Drew is speaking for the common American here, we are getting tired of this nonsense. Watch Rep.Van Drew’s interview below

Lindsey Graham Calls Out Dems On Impeachment Live On T.V.

H/T Right Wing Tribune.

Lindsey Graham was on fire Sunday.

During an appearance on Fox Business Network’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) told host Maria Bartiromo that before any serious consideration would be given to any House impeachment, he would have to hear from the so-called “Ukraine whistleblower” first.

Otherwise, any House impeachment would be “dead on arrival” in the Senate, where his Judiciary Committee would take the lead in any trial.

In response to a list of witnesses Graham’s GOP colleagues in the House are demanding to depose before Adam Schiff’s star chamber of inquiry, Graham said of Democrats, “They could care less about getting to the truth.”

You can see efforts in the [Obama] State Department where they were worried about the conflict of interest” between Hunter Biden, son of VP Joe Biden, and his association with Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian gas company, at the time the Vice President was threatening to withhold $1 billion in funds from the Ukrainian government unless it fired a prosecutor investigating Burisma, Graham said.

“We’re gonna look at that,” he continued. “I consider any impeachment in the House that doesn’t allow us to know who the whistleblower is to be invalid, because without the whistleblower complaint we wouldn’t be talking about any of this.

“And I also see the need for Hunter Biden to be called to adequately defend [President Trump], and if you don’t do those two things, it’s a complete joke,” he continued.

“If they don’t call the whistleblower, this thing is dead on arrival in the Senate.”
