Pelosi Names Corrupt Former Deep State DOJ Embed as House General Counsel To Lead Resistance…

Incoming Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has selected corrupt former DOJ career embed, Douglas N Letter, as Chief Legal Counsel for the House of Representatives.  Mr. Letter has agreed to come out of retirement to aid the House effort, and structure legal pathway to impeach President Trump.

San Francisco — Speaker-designate Nancy Pelosi announced today that she will appoint Douglas N. Letter to be the new General Counsel of the House of Representatives.

Until February 2018, Letter served as the Director of the Civil Division Appellate Staff at the U.S. Department of Justice, retiring this year after 40 years of distinguished service at the agency. He is now a Senior Litigator at the Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection at the Georgetown University Law Center, where he is also a Visiting Professor of Law. He is a recipient of many prestigious honors, including the Presidential Meritorious Rank Award.

“Douglas Letter has an outstanding and highly decorated record of achievement in service of America,” Speaker-designate Nancy Pelosi said. “He will bring deep experience and legal expertise to the House, as he counsels and represents our institution, Members and staff as House General Counsel.”

“I look forward to serving the interests of the House of Representatives and its Members,” Letter said. “I am eager to apply my litigation experience as I take on the challenges and opportunities that come with the important position of House General Counsel.”  (read more)

The Lawfare group and DNC far-left are ecstatic at the selection.  Doug Letter was a deep political operative within the institution of the DOJ who worked diligently to promote the weaponized political values of former democrat administrations.

(Via NPR) Letter fought for the DOJ — no matter which political party controlled it — through the Reagan and Clinton and George W. Bush presidencies. After the terrorist attacks in September 2001, his docket included cases about treatment of detainees, lethal drone strikes and more.

Asked for his proudest moments, he mentions this one, from the Obama years: “The Obergefell case,” he said. “That’s the one where the Supreme Court decided that gay marriage was constitutionally protected.” (more)

After the 2016 election Mr. Letter resigned his post, and now with democrats taking back control of the House, Mr. Letter gleefully comes out of retirement to assist in the primary resistance agenda.

Mr. Letter will help lead the House in their efforts to retrieve documents and executive branch information that will underpin the House investigative committee efforts against the president.  As a former member of the DOJ team, Mr. Letter will be able to help leak any internal documents that can be engineered for maximum political benefit.

    Trump had political capital when he won the election. He should have insisted Ryan was GONE ASAP. At the very least, Reince Priebus should have had Ryan “in check.” Trump should have threatened the corruptocrats in the GOP instead of embracing them. His base loathed the GOP. This is not playing fifth quarter quarterback. All was very obvious at the time but Trump’s supporters sat there making excuses.

    Trump was so popular with the PEOPLE when he won if he started trashing Republicans that threatened his agenda they would have lost election and their offices would have been deluged with phone calls. Mueller never would have happened too.

    Trump chose Pence because he had relationships in the swamp. Well, when did Pence use those relationships to influence those in the House including Ryan? Never, that’s when.

    Again, when Ryan sidelined Nunes Trump should have threatened him using Pence. These were all lost opportunities to destroy the swamp. And, destroying the swamp was never rump’s intention. He thought he could negotiate with them. And, he was wrong.

    Never let an opportunity go to waste. Nature abhors a vacuum. And Trump known everything about momentum.

    It was a foregone conclusion that Pelosi will capitalize on the GOP twiddling their thumbs.
    This is all going according to plan, including Pence’s plan.

    Our win was a waste. The Chamber of Commerce won again.

    Sorry, but I can’t pretend. Go ahead and shoot the messenger.
    It is plain as the nose on your face what is going on here. I can no longer participate in this continued daily outrage. It’s not healthy. We are all being played.

      You make objectively provable points. I have said much the same. This is not to gainsay Trump’s achievements, or to question his motives. And I’m not sure we’re being played, rather, we’re captive to a “strategy of negotiation” which, as you point out, and in my opinion also, basically ignores or fails to internalize the nature of the enemy. (The brilliance of this modus operandi remains to be seen.) In relation to Trump’s October 2016 Gettysburg speech, none of it makes sense — except, perhaps, if the speech was written by Bannon during a sizzling midnight lucubration. Appointing Ryan to spearhead healthcare reform was DOA from the start and a gross lost opportunity; Trump should have known this. The incessant indulgences of Ryan and McConnell have had no payoff in the former sense, scant in the latter one.

      Now for Pelosi it is full-steam ahead with impeachment.

      We need to crush them in this wall “negotiation” (a misnomer if there ever was one) and have a plan in formation to put them on the defensive every day until November 2020. Economic gains are essentially meaningless in the war (which is now beyond all argumentative reason or empirical data) except as a cudgel against Trump if he doesn’t sustain the great economy. Sad and cruel, but true. Beyond all that, there is voter fraud. Are we even planning for this?

      We’re not in a stage of the war anymore in which we cannot afford to lose or waste any more time.

      You know EXACTLY SQUAT where this Government is concerned and even Less where Trump is concerned. Please show us all the MILLIONS OF PAGES OF TEXT where you share the same information as POTUS or even a damn Mail Clerk for that matter. Your anger is legitimate. But it is not pointed in the right direction. Trump is virtually alone against DECADES of Corrupt DC Swamp creatures, policies, and misinformation. Not to mention the outright TREASON of our Congress. So please spare us the Whining and go play with your liberal buddies on the freeway.

        “Trump is virtually alone against DECADES of Corrupt DC Swamp creatures, policies, and misinformation.”

        And THAT is why the ONLY fix for this MASSIVELY corrupt system is a HEROIC president who VETOES ANYTHING that doesn’t give him EXACTLY what WE elected him into office for regardless of the consequences for HIM and his mostly phony opposition party portion of the UniParty. He should use his bully pulpit, and I’m not referring just to stupid tweets, to go directly to the voters explaining via fireside chats what he’s doing, why he’s doing it, and point out that the paychecks and benefit checks will flow once again once his comparatively puny budget demands are met by the totally unreasonable Dems holding up the entire government money gravy train.

        THAT is the ONLY thing that has ANY chance of fixing this insanely corrupt system. PERIOD! Hope for incremental change is completely idiotic.

        Jeff you’re yelling at yourself. This isn’t a trump fan purity test, nor did anyone above say anything against trump. His strategy isn’t working in certain regards. Everyone wants him to win and have a better winning strategy, not this one that’s a thrashing everyday.
        He’s played some cards wrong or perhaps he’s been forced to, but this spiral we’re in is a losing one. He’s up against the swamp as you say, it’s probably going to take a flame thrower approach. This one doesn’t work. He’ll lose in 2020, which is what everyone doesn’t want.

        JP- this is a terrible argument. May as well just call him a Russian bot.
        Don’t forget- Trump can declassify.

        We all need to understand that Trump WORKS FOR US. Remember he told Nancy in the Oval Office that he was going to get the wall and we all cheered? The next day he backed down but through constant pressure from all sides he did (is doing) the right thing.
        We all need to demand- DEMAND – that he start exposing the lies.
        Maybe declassifying has legal ramifications I don’t see, but, JP, answer me this: why can’t trump just tweet out Sundance’s article laying out the FISA abuses? Or any Sundance articles?

        Not so fast. I beg to differ that D.J. Trump is alone. Below find response to Nancy’s letter titled; “Let me Blunt” in which she asked for money. Think most of America may be in far a bit of surprise. As several of us old jungle warfare veterans have noticed, old D.J. Trump has been showing that he has the makings of somewhat of an ambush expert! Any of you less than confident civilian folks want to join several of us old GI’s in the peanut gallery come on. Just bring your cash. We will be in full wager mode. Just wish Donald would let me be the guy that sets out the claymores. Damn, I love those little devils!

        Response to Nancy’s Letter, “Let Me Be Blunt!”
        ***NANCY, WHILE WE ARE BEING BLUNT LET ME HELP! WHEN MY FELLOW VETS GET TO DC WE ARE GOING TO ESCORT YOU AND YOUR FELLOW INCOMPETENT/CORRUPT, SELF-SERVING, WITLESS, PISSANTS TO THE EDGE OF THE BELTWAY, STRIP YOU BARE, AND DARE YOU TO EVER LEAVE YOUR HOME DISTRICTS FOR THE REST OF YOUR DAYS. DON’T FRET, WE ARE NOT GOING AFTER ANY OF YOUR ILL GOTTEN GAINS. FIGURE THAT IS OUR PUNISHMENT FOR TOLERATING YOU AND THOSE LIKE YOU FOR SO MANY YEARS.

        FOR YOUR INFORMATION WE ARE COMING WITH AN EMERGENCY CONSTITUTIONAL ORDINANCE THAT WILL HELP US AND MR. TRUMP NOT ONLY CLEAN UP THE SWAMP, BUT PROVIDE AMERICA WITH A LEAN MEAN GOVERNMENT COMMITTED TO PROTECTING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE FROM ALL ENEMIES, BOTH FOREIGN AND MOST ESPECIALLY DOMESTIC!

        Trump is partly to blame because he has no skill at working with other people. He is a do or die negotiator but not a work together person. DC is a compromise city whether or not any of us like it and Trump does not compromise. Imagine any of us jumping into a system we had never been in and trying to change the entire thing immediately. We all know what would happen even if our goal was a just one. Trump makes announcements/decisions without telling those concerned beforehand. Imagine being in a company doing your job and in walks a new manager that has never worked in your industry before telling you that you have been doing it wrong all of these years. You would resent it and fight back! That’s what many supposed allies in DC have done with Trump. I hope he succeeds in his attempt to drain the swamp but he is going about it in the wrong way and now with the loss of the House, he will have an even tougher time.

    • Personally, I think that there is MORE coming than anyone realizes and I believe that SD is setting the stage and REMINDING us of what these squishes have done in their time in Congress…that is all!!!

      You cannot deconstruct an entire arm(s) of the government without having a backup plan. Everyone so far on this site has forgotten the 2nd EO. SPECIFICALLY…the REASON for the EO. ALL of the congcritters are in one spot. Look how all are reacting to what PDJT has done. THEY ARE AFRAID OF WHAT IS COMING…THERE IS NO TIME LIMIT WHILE THE PRESIDENT IS IN OFFICE FOR TREASON, SEDITION AND THE OVERTHROW OF A DULY ELECTED PRESIDENT.

      If he had done this last year, he would have not had the economy where it is now. He needed the economy to be going like gangbusters and showing the people that he can get things done AND get things in order for what is about to come. And PAIN…there will be a lot of…

      My way is: Ammo, more Ammo, guns, food, water, shelter and a way to subsist on the land…

      Once Pandora’s Box is opened, the whole seedy aspects of every congresscitter will be on display. BOTH DEM AND REPUB…including ALL in government who had a hand in this. THIS CANNOT STAND BECAUSE IF IT DOES IT CAN HAPPEN TO ANY DULY ELECTED PRESIDENT, BOTH DEM AND REPUB. Keep that in mind because we are very close to losing OUR FORM OF GOVERNMENT!!!

      Happy New Year Treepers, Keep the Faith in Your God and Pray…

    My comment is simplistic, but I wish that none of the candidates who needed voter fraud to win be seated, such a move would ensure the house remained leaning right. Nancy Pelosi should be ridden out of town , she is a wicked woman, totally unappreciative of any other person’s situation, remember her crumbs comment. She has milked United States citizenry for all her ill gotten gains of so called public life, and has been grabbing power far too long with a failing brain. I want her gone, banished from public life and evil influence. If any of the democrats had just a smidgen of conscience they should do the right thing and kick her out of power. Isn’t there a way to recall crooks like her?

    What happened to the 2018 DHS vote report? We can now see that Jones in Alabama benefited from illegal Twitter activities. For the life of me, I don’t see how so many So Cal Republican congresspeople all lost their seats a week after the initial election day count showed that they won reelection. If voter fraud was involved, will Letter protect those that committed or benefited from fraud, or will he work to find justice?
