Here We Go – Impeachment Chairman Jerry Nadler Sends Demand Letter to AAG Matt Whitaker…

The House Judiciary Committee is the lead committee on the constitutional process to evoke articles of impeachment.  Jerry Nadler is the committee Chairman.  Speaker Pelosi previously created specific rules for the House in a well planned construct to empower three committee heads (Cummings, Schiff and Nadler) toward a narrow path.

Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings is leading off on Thursday February 7th, 2019, with testimony from Trump’s former legal counsel Michael Cohen.  It should be noted Mr. Cohen is being represented at the committee hearing by DNC operative Lanny Davis. However, Mr. Lanny Davis is not being paid by Mr. Cohen; he is being paid by democrat groups supporting the ‘resistance’ strategy.

The very next day, Friday February 8th, Nadler has scheduled the DOJ to appear for his first round approach in the legislative trident.   This is all being done by a well-crafted design.  Toward that end, today Chairman Jerry Nadler sends an anticipatory demand letter (full pdf below) to Acting AG Matthew Whitaker telling him the committee will not respect any claims of executive privilege between the DOJ and the White House.

Washington, D.C. –Today, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) sent a letter to Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker outlining a list of prepared questions concerning communications between the Mr. Whitaker and President Trump in advance of the February 8th House Judiciary Committee hearing.

In the letter, Chairman Nadler makes clear that the Committee expects direct answers to their questions, and “will not accept your declining to answer any question on the theory that the President may want to invoke his privileges in the future.” The prepared questions cover issues related to Mr. Whitaker’s appointment by President Trump to replace Jeff Sessions following his firing, Mr. Whitaker’s decision not to recuse himself from the Special Counsel investigation, and his oversight over the Special Counsel investigation, and the nature of his relationship with the President. (press release)

The attack angle from the three-headed Cerberus (Cummings, Schiff and Nadler) becomes more clear as we review the demand questions from Nadler:

  • President Trump fired former Attorney General Jeff Sessions November 7, 2018.  On or before that date, did you have any communication with any White House official, including but not limited to President Trump, about the possibility of your appointment as Acting Attorney General?  If so, when and with whom?  Did any of those communications discuss the possibility of your recusal from oversight of the Special Counsel’s investigation?
  • You announced your decision not to recuse yourself from the Special Counsel’s investigation on December 19, 2018.  Did you consult with the White House about that decision, before or after it was announced?  If so, with whom?
  • My understanding is that you consulted with a four-person team of advisors for guidance on the question of your recusal.  Who are these four individuals?  Did any of them consult with the White House about your decision not recuse yourself from the Special Counsel’s investigation?
  • Have you ever received a briefing on the status of the Special Counsel’s investigation?  If so, have you communicated any information you learned in that briefing to any White House official, including but not limited to President Trump, or any member of President Trump’s private legal team?
  • It has been reported that President Trump “lashed out” at you on at least two occasions: after Michael Cohen pleaded guilty on November 29, 2018, and after federal prosecutors identified President Trump as “Individual 1” in a court filing on December 8, 2018.[1]
    • Did President Trump contact you after Michael Cohen pleaded guilty?  What did he say?  Did you take any action as a result of that conversation?
    • Did President Trump contact you after he was identified as “Individual 1” in documents related to the criminal sentencing of Michael Cohen?  What did he say?  Did you take any action as a result of that conversation?
    • In any of these conversations, did President Trump express concern, anger, or similar frustration with the actions of the Office of the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York?
    • In any of these conversations, did President Trump discuss the possibility of firing or reassigning certain personnel who work for the Office of the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York?
    • In any of these conversations, did the President discuss the recusal of Geoffrey Berman, the current U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, from the Michael Cohen case and other matters related to the work of the Special Counsel?
  • Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions tasked John Huber, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Utah, with reviewing a wide range of issues related to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.  Have you ever received a briefing on the status of Mr. Huber’s work?  If so, have you communicated any information you learned in such a briefing to any White House official, including but not limited to President Trump, or any member of President Trump’s private legal team?
  • On January 17, 2018, BuzzFeed News reported that federal prosecutors have evidence, in the form of witness interviews and internal communications, suggesting that President Trump had directed Michael Cohen to lie to Congress.  On January 18, the Special Counsel issued a rare statement describing some aspects of the BuzzFeed story as inaccurate.  Did you have any communication with the White House about the BuzzFeed report or the decision of the Special Counsel’s office to issue its subsequent statement?  If so, with whom?  What was discussed?

It is clear Pelosi’s three-headed beast is planning to use the manufactured media reports to achieve their sequential objective.

                My guess is “Russia Collusion” will not be one of the Articles (so POTUS declass won’t be relevant to defense).

                – Impeach in campaign/run-up to the election.
                – Attempt to push trial in Senate until AFTER the election ala SCOTUS pick argument (Dems flip Senate?)
                – Trump goes into election day as “impeached” candidate IF R’s give him nomination

                IF Trump wins re-election……Senate Trial with new members, possibly Dems. making the trial rules.

                This is all based on 19 Senate R’s even holding out that long.
                Uniparty R’s need Trump’s approval ratings to fall south of 30%
                McConnell/Schumer’s deal is designed to throw shutdown right back at Trump’s feet and do just that.
                Low approval ratings and any semi-legitimate reason Nadler, Cummings and Co can present and it’s game-set-match.

        Please WSB, Sundance writes phrases like: ” in a well planned construct to empower three committee heads” and “by a well-crafted design.” And all I seem to find to read here are witty quips. I am frightened for our Country.

        Are we going to start trying to fight this just in the nick of TOO LATE ?

        Look at all the Democrats jumping into the I-wanna-be president ring will have VAST amoral resources fighting to put them in the White House.

        Social media is already silencing our voices by de platforming, shadow banning and banning – and what have we done. We watched then cheat their way into a majority in the House and did nothing.

        Besides having all the money anyone could need to run for president, they will have all the networks fighting for them. Already the networks take every opportunity to bloody President Trump or any one associated with him. They got rid of General Flynn, and Ryan Zinke and now they are after Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, accusing her of lying about the Trump administration’s family separation policy during sworn testimony to Congress (two birds with one stone, get rid of Nielsen and bloody Trump family) and on top of all that is their terrible skill at election fraud. And believe me 2020 will be for all the marbles, they will smash their way into power and then turn around and say what are you going to do about it.

        The awful truth is we could end up with Kamala Harris installed as president – just like Obama was, she has the same handlers Obama had.

        We need our smartest people from every corner of our universe to think up ways to ruin the plans that are working now and out maneuver their future plans.

        Like is there any way to get Cummings, Schiff or Nadler disgraced and removed either from office or from committee assignments? I wonder if one of them used taxpayer money to pay off a victim.

          I know this will be tricky, however from my perch, I am seeing a lot of panicking from our foes right now.

          If President Trump needs us to do something, he will tell us and we will respond.

    Which is why the president must act to get black and white facts out while he has power and support to do so that will expose the machine and discredit it.

What would mobilize multiple factions than hard evidence of corruption from the major players at a level that may dwarf Watergate? And speaking of that, the amount of actual grist for the mill that got out was enough to shred a presidential administration.

    We need to be equipped with what the president can uncover — unmasking, spying, surveillance and raids to the level of a mob suspect of anyone the powers that be want, media collusion, agency collusion, warrant issues, and so forth. Time is short; give us a chance.

If they are still digging about Sessions, they MUST have an inkling that his departure must have been part of a plan. They do not believe Huber to be a no show.

    The Dems are digging their grave a little deeper each day.

    They still think that the old (pre-Trump) rules of Washington still apply.

    There will come a time where there is a clear, unambiguous line that the Democrat Leadership knows that it should not cross it. And, of course, the Dems will cross it.

    It won’t be pretty.

    Historically, at the heart of those who slavishly follow the Leftist Authoritarian agenda is a sense of self-loathing and need to commit self-immolation. Today’s Dems are no different from the Leftist (both Nazi and Marxist) in the past.

    A wealthy, successful, energetic, unapologetic figure such as Trump is an affront to their very being.

    The Left wants to destroy Trump because he is a reminder of what petty, cowards and sell-outs they are. They chose to “go along to get along” rather than set out on an uncharted course.

    This Republic will survive the worst that the Left can throw at it.

        My husband, 81, and I, 70, live 9 hours from Washington, DC. We live on a fixed income. We have been putting money aside for almost a year in case we need to drive to Washington to join other Deplorables in protest, if the Dems attempt or succeed in beginning IMPEACHMENT of our President.

        We will not let our President Trump stand alone against this evil. We have saved enough that we can rent 2 minivans and take at least 10 other people with us. Our list of fellow travelers is growing every day. We’ve also been coordinating with young Republicans both here at home & in the DC area.

        Is ANYONE else out there planning to make your voice heard in this way? We believe our physical presence is going to be very important & it’s the least we can do, but planning needs to start NOW.

    Nadler writes his smarmy little letter demanding answers from the DOJ.

    As if we have forgotten Lois Lerner, Hillary, Eric Holder and many others in Obama’s Banana Administration.
    As if we have forgotten the phalanx of DOJ lawyers present with witnesses in closed-door congressional hearings telling their “clients” they cannot answer oversight questions.

    I am not saying we need to act as lawless what we have witnessed, but POTUS should not roll over and let himself or his administration get trampled by hacks who never gave a damn about the law when their party occupied the White House.

    When Cohen testifies I hope to God someone asks him if he was in Prague.
    If he says he was, he’s admitting he lied to Congress.
    If he says he was not, it undermines the entire MUH RUSSIA collusion charade in the dossier.

      Cohen has zero credibility, same with Mueller too.
      One guy can do away with attorney client privilege?
      Then Cohen pleads guilty to some nonsense?
      Tax evasion, bank fraud, and breaking campaign finance law.
      What a joke.

    The Democrat Who Could Lead Trump’s Impeachment Isn’t Sure It’s Warranted
    If the House flips, Representative Jerry Nadler would head the committee that could try to oust the president. But he’ll have to be convinced first.

    RUSSELL BERMAN SEP 10, 2018

    -snip-

    His current reticence notwithstanding, there is likely no Democrat currently serving in Congress who has talked more about impeachment or developed a more fully formed opinion about its intended purpose than Jerry Nadler. He first articulated his view under vastly different circumstances, and in defense of a Democratic president. But over the course of 20 years, it hasn’t changed much.

    Born in Brooklyn and educated at Columbia and Fordham, Nadler won his first election to the House in 1992, after a decade representing Manhattan’s Upper West Side in the New York State Assembly. But it wasn’t until 1998 that he gained national attention, as one of former President Bill Clinton’s sharpest and most ardent defenders during the Republican Congress’s attempt to force him from office.

    I doubt Trump will be hurt by any of this utter nonsense, but I do dread having to go through months and months hearing about this absolutely corrupt load of bovine droppings as if it’s the truth

    It’s outrageous and disheartening that serious and thinking adults have to sit through two more years of this Romper Room of corruption and criminality

    As the years tick by and we watch our government turn into a clown show inhabited by liars, miscreants, radicals and outright criminals, crucial years of progress for ourselves and our children are being wasted

    What our government has turned into requires intelligent, thinking and freedom loving adults to combat and counter it, yet we continue to allow third world morons in to saturate and dilute the votes of Americans, making it harder to do something about it

    I’m truly disgusted and sick of all of it, but the worst part is our children will suffer more than anything we’ve known due to our neglect of our basic duty as Americans

    Yeah, it feels hopeless at times, especially when we predict a red wave, only to see a nitwit bartender and a Muslim who calls our President a mother****er elected to our halls of power, put there by foreigners, brainwashed Americans and voter fraud

    We’re up against some big odds in this country, but we’ve overcome some big odds in the past, and we couldn’t have a better man in the Oval Office, so we’ll see how all this plays out

    President Trump has a tall order in front of him. Support him and pray for America

    “Perjury..is not a great and dangerous offense against the Nation. It is not an abuse of uniquely presidential power. It does not threaten our form of government. It is not an impeachable offense.” — Jerold Nadler, 12/18/1998.

    Tell AG Matthew Whitaker not to attend since claims of executive privilege are not being honored. Force all of this into the supreme court. Release all of the declassified documents to the Judges. Seek the impeachment and prosecution of Chairman Jerry Nadler and others. Full Stop

    Toward that end, today Chairman Jerry Nadler sends an anticipatory demand letter (full pdf below) to Acting AG Matthew Whitaker telling him the committee will not respect any claims of executive privilege between the DOJ and the White House.

      How much more prodding is needed? It’s obvious what has been, is and will continue to happen.

      I’ll probably get booted by ad rem-but empty threats make us FEEL better-but it doesn’t improve anything.

      I make comments like this, not to be petty or a smarta$$-I’m mad too. But the time is NOW-if anything is to be done. I’ve tried to “rally the troops” as it were, locally…in rural NC-but 9 out of 10 people don’t want to hear it.

      And I started this feeling out process 2 years ago. I sent (12) letters to my community asking if they wanted to get together and brainstorm about how to organize. NOT A SINGLE response was received.

      So, when I hear empty threats, it just rubs me the wrong way.
