Devin Nunes Discusses Next Week’s House Impeachment Hearings…

HPSCI ranking member Devin Nunes appears on Fox News with Judge Jeanine Pirro to discuss ongoing political issues.  During the interview Representative Nunes outlines the House hearings scheduled for next week.

The framework and purpose of this upcoming week is something we have outlined since January; democrats are forming the foundation for impeachment as a political tool.  The comments from Nunes about impeachment hearings begins at 05:00 [WATCH]

.

As we discussed last week, all of this is by design. Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats are structuring a contempt vote against U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr for next week, June 11th.   As part of the current construct, the Lawfare alliance of legal advisers and staff are writing specific language into the vote that will automatically allow more contempt votes against the Trump administration without hearings.

Their collective goal is to use a legislative vote to open a civil lawsuit against Bill Barr for his failure to deliver the fully unredacted Mueller report to them.

Additionally, the contempt vote will be written so that any arbitrary Trump administration official can also be held in contempt, without a committee vote, and thereby initiate a civil lawsuit against the executive officer that will have to be defended in court.

Pelosi and the Lawfare group are avoiding a criminal contempt process because that would require the DOJ to participate.  Instead lawyers working on behalf of Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, HPSCI Chairman Schiff, and/or White House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings will sue the Trump administration in civil court.

If they can win a civil award (they will carefully select the judge) Pelosi and Nadler can start issuing civil fines for contempt against individual cabinet members.  Adam Schiff has previously stated his recommended target amount would be $25,000 per day/per person.

Now go back to December 2018 and the specific rule changes that Pelosi put in place, and you’ll see how this was planned out long ago.  This lawfare approach, including every aspect of the Mueller probe and the delivery of the Weissmann report therein, is all part of one carefully planned continuum of activity.   By design at the end of their plan is the official impeachment investigation.

Washington, D.C. –The House Judiciary Committee will continue hearings focused on the alleged crimes and other misconduct laid out in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report.  The next hearing entitled “Lessons from the Mueller Report: Presidential Obstruction and Other Crimes” will take place on June 10th. The hearing will feature former White House Counsel John Dean as well as former U.S. Attorneys and legal experts. The Committee also plans to consider targeted legislative, oversight and constitutional remedies designed to respond to these matters. (read more)

See how it is all sequenced, timed and connected?

This has been their plan all along.  Pelosi’s poo-pooing of impeachment was always a head-fake to the compliant media, designed to fabricate a narrative around unlikely impeachment, and throw people off the scent of a plan that was designed even before the mid-term election of 2018.

[Trust me, Pelosi’s approach to hide their plan works.  Look at how many people criticized CTH warnings that Pelosi, Schiff, Nadler and Cummings were planning this out all along.]

When we approach the term “impeachment” we are not discussing it as the technical and legal approach for removal of a President; but rather the political use of the process to Alinsky (damage) President Donald Trump.

Professional political Democrats would not be using “impeachment” in the constitutional sense of the process (high crimes and misdemeanors); but rather weaponizing the process –as a tool itself– to: •target the executive office; •diminish the presidency (“isolate”/”marginalize”, Alinsky rules); •and position themselves for 2020.

After the 2018 mid-terms, and in preparation for the “impeachment” strategy, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler hired Lawfare Group members to become committee staff. Chairman Schiff hired former SDNY U.S. Attorney Daniel Goldman (link), and Chairman Nadler hired  Obama Administration lawyer Norm Eisen and criminal defense attorney Barry Berke (link), all are within the Lawfare network.

[IMPORTANT: Keep in mind that Speaker Pelosi has selected former insider DOJ official Douglas Letter to be the Chief Legal Counsel for the House.  That becomes important when we get to the part about new powers granted to the House Counsel.]

The Pelosi House rules clearly present the outline for an impeachment calendar as directed by changes to the oversight committees.  Additionally, there is a myriad of new processes which appear to have been developed through the Lawfare alliance.  Here’s some of the overview (full pdf).

Speaker Pelosi sets up a new, much narrower, oversight priority for Chairman Elijah Cummings; specifically to tailor oversight to the White House and President Donald Trump. Additionally we see the outlined time-schedule for hearings.

In subsection “k” the “clarification” is the narrowing of Elijah Cummings focus.  “Oversight Over the Executive Office of the President“.  This sets up the system for Cummings to target President Trump, his family, and all members of the executive branch as they relate to specific White House functions.

The Pelosi rules tell Chairman Cummings to deliver his schedule for his investigation(s) to the House by April 15th, 2019.  Thereafter the hearing sessions will commence.  The objective of those hearings is House impeachment of the President; so now we know the general timeline the Democrats plan to follow.

♦ To help achieve that objective on Page #3 Pelosi changed the rules on depositions:

In previous oversight hearings depositions of witnesses could not be conducted by counsel unless minority members were also present.  Pelosi removes that rule allowing an expanded team of House lawyers to question anyone regardless of whether there is a republican present to defend/protect the interests of the witness or target.

Additionally, in the event Republicans develop immediate defensive plans to push back against the weaponization of these oversight committees, Pelosi gives her Chairs 60 days to make up the rules for their committees so they can deflect any defenses.

♦ Following with the investigative plans for impeachment; and in conjunction with all new powers granted to a massively expanded group of House lawyers with new and expanded power; page #7 has specific rules to benefit HPSCI Chairman Adam Schiff:

HPSCI Chairman Adam Schiff can now, autonomously, demand and instruct depositions from anyone, at any time, for any reason; and the House Intelligence Committee does not need to consider any possible scheduling conflicts for any of the targets, or have any republican members present therein.  [Schiff granted far more power than Nunes.]

♦ Page #9 is the beginning of a very interesting new power being granted to an expanded office of House Legal Counsel:

This is only the first part of this Pelosi rule.  This part speaks to coordination with Lawfare and similar activist groups outside government.  The House will now defend Obamacare, and all other possible constructs, with a legal team – regardless of what the DOJ might be doing on the same legal matter.   In essence, a mini-legislative DOJ branch that will fight the U.S. Dept of Justice if needed. (more on this in another section).

♦ Page #13 is the most interesting, and ties back to the Page #9 rule.

Here Speaker Pelosi sets up an internal House division of lawyers, paid with taxpayer funds, to defend Obamacare against any adverse action.  In essence Pelosi is setting up her own Legislative Branch division of justice, to fight against the Executive Branch U.S. Department of Justice if needed.

The primary issue surrounds defending Obamacare from possible legal removal.  However, it doesn’t take a deep political thinker to see where this approach ends up. It would be naive to think the Lawfare group (Benjamin Wittes) did not help create this new internal legal system.

Normally/traditionally House Counsel represents the interests of the entire Legislative Branch on any issue that might surface.  However, Pelosi set up a legal activist agency within the House Counsel to specifically “advocate” for Democrat priorities, against the position of the U.S. Department of Justice, and use taxpayer funds to finance the scheme.

Speaker Pelosi has created her own mini DOJ (the Lawfare alliance) inside the legislative branch.  And, with additional investigative powers granted to House committees, we might even see a mini-FBI investigative units, dispatched to conduct investigations, accountable only to speaker Pelosi.  Heck, considering congress already has subpoena power, there’s no telling where this might end.

      Kind of what I was thinking.

      Does the Democrat’s well coordinated “lawfare” plan, i.e. a continuance of the Coup d’etat against a sitting President by their Justice Department and FBI partisans using the legislature and courts, effectively overthrowing the elected Government of the United States “… by any means necessary”, do their plans include that part about their operatives dropping off the face of the earth. No fanfare. No facebook posts. No “ISIS” style video’s. Just one morning, some lawyer didn’t report to work. And then a political aide the next day. And maybe a committee staff, or even chief of staff, the next day. Then a network anchor goes missing, and then some “talking head” commentator who used to work in the government alphabet soup of agencies can’t be located. Weird things keep happening, but no one can figure out who or why.

      In the 21st century, that’s what happens before 1861.v2.. The Marxist Democrats are pursuing tribal warfare against the US Constitution and will of the people, using their “lawfare” methodology, while some other people may push back with a different type of tribal warfare. That’s how life works.

      Do their plans include provisions for this? I seriously doubt it. They are too stupid to understand that their paid security won’t protect them against motivated, organized professionals. Not their wacko “ANTIFA” snowflake types, but serious, experienced, very quiet people would be involved. The Marxist leftists believe themselves to be untouchable. They would be wrong.

      But these are just words, speculation, with a bit of a nod to history. Means nothing, until a certain catalyst pushes events beyond the control of these authoritarian elites, these narcissistic, self-promoting “gods” among us, those “heroic” Marxist-Democrats.

      Then yes, you are correct, the wheels start turning, the events start happening, things become “out of control”, patriots will have nothing left to lose after they’ve committed to action, and 1861.v2 becomes a sad reality.

    Impeachment for what! It’s not this “political process” lie we keep hearing and reading about.

    ANY vote (in the House), will cause a deadly civil UPRISING!

    If then – The secondary/finalizing aspect in the Senate (if removal), would cause a REVOLT and total destruction on the USA!

    Military enlistees and veterans would FULLY CONTROL the arsenal of the USA!! ALL would SUPPORT President Trump….and the RULE-OF-LAW!

      Patience, Grasshopper. When the Trump Admin. makes charges against the Clintons and the DNC, they will have to have an iron-clad case that will put them all behind bars (in 1 of Obama’s detention work camps would be GREAT!). If the charges are half-baked, Clinton and the rest of the Deep State will just dig their heels in further and launch retribution against anyone not a dem/liberal…after they castrate and hang The Donald. The Dems know this, too. This is why Pelosi won’t bring a vote f impeachment onto the House floor, they do not have solid evidence. This is why they are trying to manufacture false evidence. I see they are now trying to liken Trump to Nixon’s debacle. Funny thing about that is, Hillary was fired for being an unscrupulous (“can not be trusted”) attorney in Watergate.

      Oh yeah…..President Trump is certainly no fool, as I’m sure you are aware, and has to be aware of the traitors’ continuous actions to remove him from office. All of this – Pelosi’s moves – smack of fear and desperation. They are trying to run out the clock, as t were, in an attempt to beat AG Barr’s investigation(s) and indictment(s).

      Ag Barr spoke recently at the FBI Academy. Paraphrasing, he compared his return to the AG’s office at this point in history to jumping into, “Ste. Mere Eglise (6 June 1944) and looking for a place to land without getting shot.” The reaction from the asseled crowd was silence. As you are aware, AG Barr is a very serious man who measures his words carefully, and especially so when giving oral comments at a public venue.

      There will be much wailing and gnashing of teeth in the days to come, but President Trump and AG Barr have most definitely got this.

    Hoe does this Schiff go on for so long ? It is fueled by the msm propaganda arm of the Demosocialist Party. Any damage that can be done to them is of high value and will cause some of them to retreat.

    A good start would have been The Wolfe sexpionage with presstitute Ali Watkins being prosecuted and publicized. The sexsational aspect would have drawn the interest of the casual observer.

    The Legislative Branch attempting to usurp the other two powers. The same rules will apply against them when they lose the House in 2020. They are angering this country and their fake ‘impeachment’ will mean nothing…the more they open their mouths, the more clinically psycho they appear. The face of dictatorship resides in the House.

      I hope that after we sweep clean many of the treasonous rats from congress in 2020, that we can also begin the process of IMPEACHING and removing many of these activist, extremist, federal judges from their respective benches. They are as much an enemy of the people as both the Uniparty and their willing conspirators in the treasonous, 5th column, media apparatus.

    Len Colodny, author of Silent Coup donated his vast array of Watergate related interviews to Texas A & M. Here is a link to the website. Colodny presents a very persuasive case that John Dean ordered the Watergate break-ins, launched the coverup the instant he learned about it, suborned perjurty, destroyed evidence, used the names of his superiors without their knowledge, fabricated evidence and lied prodigiously under oath and in conversations. There is a real wealth of knowledge for anyone interested in political history in the 1960s-mid 1970s. Highlights of the interviews are the Roy Elson (aide to Senator Carl Hayden-D-AZ) interviews, the Carl Shoffler interviews (arresting officer of the Watergate burglars) and many with authors Jim Hougan and Phil Stanford. Colodny also interviewed the assistant US Attorney Jack Rudy who divulged some of the particulars of the Phil Bailley case that involved Maureen Dean, Heidi Rikan and some more famous people.
