The U.S. Senate Has a Survival Interest in Supporting Impeachment Effort…

….In 2016 a branch of the United States government (Legislative) was attempting a soft-coup against the leader of another branch of government (Executive); by using the Senate Intelligence Committee and designated corrupt agents within the executive branch cabinet… In 2019 the effort shifted to the House Intelligence Committee…

During the 2016 effort to weaponize the institutions of government against the outside candidacy of Donald Trump, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) was headed by Richard Burr and Dianne Feinstein. After the 2016 election Senator Feinstein abdicated her vice-chair position to Senator Mark Warner in January 2017.

While the SSCI was engaged in their part of the 2016 effort Vice-Chair Feinstein’s lead staffer was a man named Daniel Jones.

Dan Jones was the contact point between the SSCI and Fusion-GPS.

After the election, and after Feinstein abdicated, Dan Jones left the committee to continue paying Fusion-GPS (Glenn Simpson) for ongoing efforts toward the impeachment insurance policy angle.

Senator Feinstein left because she didn’t want to deal with the consequences of a President Trump, IF he discovered the SSCI involvement. Dan Jones left because with a Trump presidency the SSCI, now co-chaired by Senator Mark Warner, needed arms-length plausible deniability amid their 2017 operations to continue the removal effort (soft coup).

The blueprint for this plausible deniability process, and ongoing soft-coup effort, first surfaces with Dan Jones appearing in the 2017 text messages between Senator Warner and the liaison for Christopher Steele, lawyer and lobbyist Adam Waldman:

In those March 2017 text message you can see Senator Warner attempting to set up covert “no paper trail” communication with dossier author Christopher Steele. Adam Waldman represented Chris Steele and Steele’s employer, Oleg Deripaska.

Less than a month later you can see within the text messages that Christopher Steele is in direct contact with Dan Jones. “[Chris] said Dan Jones is coming to see you” etc.

(Text Messages Between Feinstein’s replacement, Mark Warner, and Chris Steele’s lawyer/lobbyist, Adam Waldman, noting the importance of Dan Jones)

Dan Jones talking to Christopher Steele in 2017 is critical to understanding what was going on after Trump won the election.

Jones raised $50 million from those who were behind the 2016 stop Trump effort, and the purpose was now the 2017 impeachment effort [SEE LINK]. Jones having left the SSCI (now outside govt.) then paid Christopher Steele and Fusion GPS to keep up their efforts. As you can see from the texts, Jones was now talking in person (“coming to see you”) to SSCI Vice-Chair Mark Warner in April 2017.

[Side-Bar: The role of Fusion-GPS in 2017 shifted, and was now weighted toward feeding a specific media narrative that would aid impeachment (through the FBI, Weissmann and Mueller obstruction angle). Fusion-GPS was now the conduit for arms-length media leaks from the usurping small group still inside the DOJ and FBI. Dan Jones was paying Fusion on behalf of those with larger interests. Fusion was feeding the media.]

So you can clearly see the Republican-led Senate Select Committee on Intelligence was heavily involved in the impeachment effort after the election.

Secondary documentation of the connection between the DOJ, FBI, Fusion, and Dan Jones shows up in the FBI investigative 302 notes of Bruce Ohr, released by Judicial Watch. [Pay attention to the May 8th, 2017, interview – pg 18, 19 of pdf]

The highlighted bottom portion of page 18 (May 8, 2017, interview) shows a heavily redacted text, but holds enough material to overlay with other research.

This is where Bruce Ohr is talking about Dan Jones efforts as they were currently aligned with Fusion GPS: “and had been on the staff of the [Senate Intelligence Committee]”…. “At the time of the interview [Jones] was working with the [Vice Chairman of the Committee Mark Warner]”… etc.

This part is heavily redacted because the corrupt agents within the current DOJ and FBI once again don’t want people to piece together what was happening.  There is an obvious ongoing element within the DOJ/FBI that is working in concert with politicians to protect both their interests.  We see this quid-pro-quo in the Wolfe outcome.

These are not sources and methods being redacted. This is not national security being redacted. This is the trail of the connective tissue in/around the small group plotting what is being hidden by current DOJ/FBI and Intelligence Community officials.

At the top of page 19, the investigative notes of Ohr’s discussion continues.

Bruce Ohr is telling the FBI investigator, likely Agent Joe Pientka, about Glenn Simpson and Dan Jones visiting Christopher Steele sometime after May 8, 2017, and they were in the process of “lawyering up”.

Now before going deeper in the SSCI weeds, let me pause and explain the specifics behind why the FBI was interviewing Bruce Ohr about Chris Steele; by overlaying what was going on in/around early 2017.

Chris Steele wasn’t alone in creating the “dossier”. Heck, the purpose of Fusion-GPS contracting Steele; and the purpose of the FBI engaging with Steele; was the laundry value of having a known intelligence officer validate political opposition research which the FBI could use against Donald Trump. The reality is: most of the raw material and research inside the dossier was from Glenn Simpson and Nellie Ohr at Fusion GPS.

The ‘small group’ inside the DOJ and FBI always knew the provenance of the material; the plan and intent was to utilize Fusion-GPS for their political purposes.

Everyone carrying out this operation, all of the corrupt entities within it, knew the material from Chris Steele was essentially political opposition research. Many of those same people later weaponized the research into the FISA application to give it higher import and value.

That set’s up early 2017 – where the FBI was evaluating the extent to which Chris Steele was willing to remain on public record to support a false framework about the dossier itself. This is the same time-frame where Fusion is being paid by Dan Jones to facilitate the calls for a special counsel. Fusion drives that narrative with structured leaks to media.

Steele’s support was a key issue because the corrupt DOJ and FBI officials were about to hand-off the dossier to Special Counsel Robert Mueller (figurehead only) as the basis for the ‘small group’ and him to launch the special counsel aspect of an ongoing operation.

If Chris Steele suddenly walked away from the dossier, and/or admitted publicly the dossier was political opposition research primarily from Glenn Simpson and Nellie Ohr, the FBI would have a shit-storm on its hands…. and they needed to evaluate the position of Steele. Steele could be a risk if he was not supporting the team playbook. That’s the driving purpose behind all of this “re-engagement” with Steele through Bruce Ohr.

The small group in the DOJ and FBI planned to continue, pass-off and modify the Trump investigation by shifting it to a special counsel. The centerpiece of that investigation would be using the dossier as justification for a need to investigate Trump as a Russian risk. The DOJ/FBI small group needed Glenn Simpson and Chris Steele to stand by the false narrative all of the players had assembled over the prior year.

The wildcard to retain the false story was Chris Steele… Steele was an outside participant, albeit aligned with the ideology and the purpose. Evaluating Steele’s willful participation in keeping the narrative as assembled was the reason for their urgent talks; however, the “small group” couldn’t run the risk of direct talks in the same way that Mark Warner couldn’t risk of a paper trail.

Adam Waldman and Dan Jones were facilitating a plausibly deniable information pipeline from Chris Steele to Senator Mark Warner. Bruce Ohr was facilitating a plausibly deniable information pipeline from Chris Steele to the FBI/DOJ small group. The purposes were the same, everyone needed assurances Steele wasn’t going to back-out.

That corrupt planning activity is what the current DOJ and intelligence officials are hiding behind the Bruce Ohr 302 redactions:

.

When you understand what the group was doing in early 2017, you understand why the FBI had to use DOJ official Bruce Ohr as a go-between to contact with Chris Steele.

Now we move on to overlay several data-points that happened throughout 2018 that are connected to a much more troubling part of the overall issues. In 2018 the DOJ and FBI covered-up the corruption evident during the 2017 pre-Mueller effort.

This 2017 and 2018 time period covers Robert Mueller as Special Counsel, Jeff Sessions as AG, Rod Rosenstein as Deputy, Chris Wray as FBI Director, David Bowditch as Deputy and Dana Boente as FBI legal counsel. I’ll lay out the evidence, you can then determine who was powerful enough to have made these decisions.

As a result of a FOIA release in Mid December 2018, Judicial Watch revealed how the State Department was feeding “classified information” to multiple U.S. Senators on the Senate Intelligence Committee by the Obama administration immediately prior to President Donald Trump’s inauguration:

The documents reveal that among those receiving the classified documents were Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD), and Sen. Robert Corker (R-TN).

Judicial Watch obtained the documents through a June 2018 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed against the State Department after it failed to respond to a February 2018 request seeking records of the Obama State Department’s last-minute efforts to share classified information about Russia election interference issues with Democratic Senator Ben Cardin (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:18-cv-01381)).

The documents reveal the Obama State Department urgently gathering classified Russia investigation information and disseminating it to members of Congress within hours of Donald Trump taking office. (read more)

The impeachment program was a plan, an insurance policy of sorts; a coordinated effort between corrupt politicians in the Senate and hold-over allies in the executive; however, because she didn’t want to participate in this – Senator Dianne Feinstein abdicated her vice-chair position to Senator Mark Warner. [Background Here]

This is the pre-cursor to utilizing Robert Mueller. A plan that was developed soon after the 2016 election. The appointment of a special counsel was always the way they were going to hand-off and continue the investigation into Trump; but they needed a reason for it.

The continued exploitation of the Steele Dossier was critical; thus they needed Chris Steele to be solid. And the continued manipulation of the media was also critical; thus they needed Fusion-GPS to continue. [Dan Jones paid both]

While Mark Warner was communicating with Adam Waldman and Dan Jones as a conduit to Chris Steele, the FBI/DOJ team was communicating through Bruce Ohr to Chris Steele (and by extension to Nellie Ohr and Fusion GPS).

Part of Warner’s role was to weaponize the Legislative branch to advance the ‘Muh Russia conspiracy’, a fundamental necessity if a special counsel was going to have justification.

The SSCI, and the security protocols within it, were structurally part of the plan; hence the rapid information from Obama’s State Dept. to the SSCI and Senate participants in the last moments prior to departing.

♦ On March 17th, 2017, the Senate Intelligence Committee took custody of the FISA application used against Carter Page. We know the FISA court delivered the read and return Top-Secret Classified application due to the clerk stamp of March 17, 2017.

(Page FISA Application, Link)

The FISA application (original and first renewal) was delivered to Senate Security Director James Wolfe. Senator Mark Warner entered the basement SCIF shortly after 4:00pm on March 17, 2017, the day it was delivered (texts between Warner and Waldman):

Now, when SSCI Security Officer James Wolfe was indicted (unsealed June ’18), we could see the importance of the March 17th date again:

(Wolfe Indictment Link)

We can tell from the description within the indictment FBI investigators are describing the FISA application. Additionally Wolfe exchanged 82 text messages with his reporter/girlfriend Ali Watkins. The FISA application is 83 pages with one blank page.

The logical conclusion was that Wolfe texted Ali Watkins 82 pictures of the application.

FBI Investigators applied for, and received a search warrant for the phone records of journalist Ali Watkins. Ms. Watkins was notified in February 2018, three months after Wolfe was questioned by FBI investigators in December 2017.

However, despite the overwhelming (public) circumstantial evidence that Wolfe leaked the FISA application, he was never charged with leaking classified information. Wolfe was only charged with lying three times to federal authorities, and he pled down to one count of lying to the FBI.

CTH made the case in mid 2018 that someone at the DOJ had influenced a decision not to charge Wolfe with the leaking of the FISA application; despite the FBI and DOJ having direct evidence of Wolfe leaking classified information.

The logical reason for the DOJ not to charge Wolfe with the FISA leak was because that charge could ensnare a Senator on the powerful committee, likely Mark Warner.

Remember, the SSCI has intelligence oversight of the DOJ, DOJ-NSD, FBI and all associated counterintelligence operations. Additionally, when the FBI was investigating Wolfe for leaking classified documents, according to their court filings they had to inform the committee of the risk Wolfe represented. Who did they have to inform?.. Chairman Burr and Vice-Chair Warner.

D’oh. Think about it. A gang-of-eight member (Warner), who happened -as a consequence of the jaw dropping implications- to be one of only two SSCI members who was warned by the FBI that Wolfe was compromised…. and he’s the co-conspirator. The ramifications cannot be overstated. Such a criminal charge would be a hot mess.

Thus, the perfect alignment of interests for a dropped charge and DC cover-up.

Then, in an act of serendipity, James Wolfe himself bolstered that suspicion when he threatened to subpoena members of the SSCI as part of his defense. [See Here]

[…] Attorneys for James A. Wolfe sent letters to all 15 senators on the committee, notifying them that their testimony may be sought as part of Mr. Wolfe’s defense, according to two people familiar with the matter.

[…] Mr. Wolfe’s defense lawyers are considering calling the senators as part of the proceedings for a variety of reasons, including as potential character witnesses and to rebut some of the allegations made by the government in the criminal complaint, these people say. (link)

Immediately after threatening to subpoena the SSCI (July 27, 2018), the DOJ cut a deal with Wolfe and dropped the charges down to a single charge of lying to investigators. However, someone doing the investigative legwork wasn’t happy with that decision.

Our overwhelming CTH circumstantial evidence that Wolfe leaked the FISA application went from a strong suspicion, to damn certain (after the plea deal) when the DOJ included a sentencing motion in mid-December 2018.

On December 15th, 2018 the DOJ filed a response to the Wolfe defense team’s own sentencing memo (full pdf), and within the DOJ response they included an exhibit (#13) written by the FBI [redacted] special agent in charge, which specifically says: “because of the known disclosure of classified information, the FISA application”… Thereby admitting, albeit post-plea agreement, that Wolfe did indeed leak the damn FISA:

(link to document)

Right there, in that FBI Special Agent description is the bombshell admission that James Wolfe leaked the Carter Page FISA application to his concubine Ali Watkins at Buzzfeed.

We know the special agent who wrote exhibit #13 in the December filing was Special Agent Brian Dugan, Asst. Special Agent in Charge, Washington Field Office. The same investigator who originally signed the affidavit in the original indictment.

So with hindsight there was absolutely no doubt that James Wolfe leaked the 83-page Carter Page FISA application on March 17, 2017. Period. It’s all documented with circumstantial and direct evidence; including the admissions from the FBI agent in charge.

So, why was James Wolfe allowed to plea to a single count of lying to investigators?

Back to where this started….

A branch of the United States government (Legislative) was attempting a coup against the leader of another branch of government (Executive); by using planted and designated corrupt agents within the cabinet…

The problem for Attorney General Bill Barr is not investigating what we don’t know, but rather navigating through what ‘We The People’ are already aware of….

      I think a lot of that will depend on how Senator Mitch McConnell structures the trial. Back when Clinton was impeached, Majority Leader Trent Lott went through a lot of negotiations with Minority Leader Tom Daschle about how to proceed (McConnell and Collins were junior senators at the time).

      A lot of the key evidence Team Trump will want to introduce is still classified. Do his lawyers have the clearance – or will this be like Ms. Powell in the Flynn case? I wouldn’t count on McConnell having a closed door trial where every senator would then be given clearance to see the evidence.

      Senator Robert Byrd introduced a dismissal motion ahead of the trial. It will be interesting if a Republican senator (Rand Paul?) attempts that in support of President Trump given that, unlike President Clinton, President Trump is innocent and clearly being framed.

        Absent the faction’s obstreperous Whig complement, we channel a post-Jacksonian reformist claque originally called the “Equal Rights Party”, later Locofocos (after a brand of kitchen matches). Pres. Trump’s no Locofoco, but … he’ll do.

        Do-gooders of this persuasion supported Andrew Jackson and van Buren; free trade; specie vs. fiat banknotes; capital markets, organized labor, State (vs. national) infrastructure banks depicted in Henry Clay’s American System. (“Organized labor” has long since forfeited libertarian claims.)

        Ralph Waldo Emerson said of the Locofocos: “These … fanatics for freedom are stiff, heady, and rebellious; they hate banks and hierarchies, governors, taxes, tolls, turnpikes … yea, most laws.” However jejeune, terminally naïve it seems, this first-principle Locofoco sense drove America’s historic growth-and-change to Wilson, FDR, and LBJ, when metastasizing Deep State apparats mounted dark-interest coups d’oeuvre as Poor Richard prophesied.

    You make powerful and practical arguments. Your logic is clear, persuasive and disheartening; appropriately sobering.

    However, when the actions are not coup but instead sedition, are you saying US Senators may act seditiously? Can members and employees of Congress and our other government agencies freely engage in acts of sedition? In what manner are they free to conspire to commit sedition or act seditiously in concert with foreign interests and cohorts; at liberty to demonstrably engage in such sedition and do so with impunity?

    I am no so certain the impunity argument will hold if sedition against a newly elected POTUS can be otherwise demonstrated, especially when it might also be demonstrated that foreign nationals and governments were solicited and used to conduct the sedition.

    To me, rhetorical accusations of “coup” are merely a way of characterizing potential evidence of more serious crimes which may have been committed.

        Framing one candidate in an attempt to Install another candidate who does not have public consent is not a coup? Attempting to overthrow an elected president is not a coup? Then what is?

        Sedition involves incitement and rebellion. Contrast with a coup, which involves a political faction illegally taking power. A coup does not necessarily involve violence. It often does, but not necessarily. Sedition, on the other hand, does necessarily involve force (18 U.S.C. § 2384).

        In this instance those involved are not inciting rebellion, they are a political faction in the government which sought and still seeks to illegally obtain power. That is the very definition of a coup.

I’m not certain if what’s allowed to be covered in the trial is limited to the scope of the impeachment articles. That may be their (Dem’s in Congress) angle.

    It would be good for people to lay out what could be done by bad people to engineer the proceedings in the Senate trial to somehow not allow what would be needed to fully defend the President against charges. Otherwise, I’m not sure why the Dem’s would really want to do this.

    It still seems like their best play is to continue the impeachment debate for the rest of the President’s term.

      The Senate hearings will not require any particular form. It will need decided by the Senate. In the Clinton impeachment there were three days of the impeachment managers presenting their case, then three days of rebuttal by Clinton’s team led by Cheryl Mills. Then we procedural votes were held. A vote to dismiss all charges by Sem. Byrd, which had been tabled on the first day, was voted down 56-44, on straight party lines. A vote to permit interrogation of witnesses passed, and the house managers did video depositions of Vernon Jordan, Sid Blumenthal, and Monica. Then it was decided that only excerpts of the depositions would be used.

      As you can see there is no set or required process. The ideas that Trump’s attorneys will be able to flip the tables and put the Deep State in trial seems unlikely.

      I note it is very popular with the “trust the plan” crew, whose track record for accurate scenarios is laughable. (See: “sealed indictments” “martial law” “Gitmo” “military tribunals”)

        The notion that a Senate Trial in this case would last just 6 days is laughable. It would last at least 6 weeks. Since there is no “set or required process” the Senate majority will decide on procedure and the minority will have no say. That would be a direct reflection of the House impeachment proceedings; indeed turnabout is fair play.

    • The problem for both Houses of Congress is that evidence of deep corruption is mounting very quickly, and the very same foreign governments which the US officials “roughed up” are now the ones who are openly coming clean and revealing – under oath – what actually happened.

      So, it is clear that “impeachment” is being considered, not to punish high crimes and misdemeanors on the part of the President, but to protect high crimes and misdemeanors which have been committed (and, are being committed) by … Members of Congress and former Presidents and Veeps!

      “We want to expel this President because he wants to expose us.”

      This episode of The Swamp Strikes Back cannot end well for Trump’s accusers because Trump (and Rudy-G) has the proof of what transpired, and has the means to make it public to the entire world. His accusers have now literally been reduced to writing works of fiction, claiming that it is testimony and evidence of crime, when no Court in the world would accept it as such. They seek to advance the case that “the President violated the law,” when “the law” is their version. They seek to conceal the fact that they themselves did violate the law – the real version. And they have no power to prevent the governments of other nations from testifying, under oath, that they did so.

        I hear ya, but you would think the dems would come to their senses and cut a deal before the scheisse storm hits.

        It seems unlikely this is merely a “narrative war.” What is their end state? Do they think they have something up their sleeve that will prevail in the senate? And if it prevailed what are they going to do with the half of the country that knows the truth?

        All the cards would have to fall perfectly for the senate to convict PT prior to the election, then all Trump voters in disgust at the betrayal stand down in 2020, the dems control all three branches and the “fundamental transformation” under a socialist government goes berserk.

        The dems have to win everything in 2020 and immediately take off the gloves to keep the country under control or be crushed by the backlash.

    Sundance — Is it not plausible that Wolfe flipped and agreed to secret cooperation with the DOJ in exchange for the plea deal?

    I.e. he agrees to provide additional documentation, maybe wear a wire, is monitored 24/7 by special agents and one peep or wink/nod from him to tip off others nullifies the plea arrangement and he gets charged fully.

    Seems to me that such a scenario is just as plausible as letting him off easily just to protect the SSCI, powerful as those senators may be. Wolfe’s crime, which you have documented clearly, was too serious for that.

  15. Impeachment is the candle flame, and Democrats are the moths.

    Many people in Washington, DC have been engaged in international crime for many decades. Biden “roughed up” the government of Ukraine and boasted about it on television. Sitting Members of Congress did the same. Several foreign governments are now testifying – under oath – about what has been done to them, as they, too, have new public officers who attained their office on “drain the swamp.” It doesn’t take any mental effort to see that the swamp merely wants to rid itself of someone who is capable of exposing them.

    But, I actually do not believe that Articles of Impeachment will pass the House. If some of the claims made in those Articles are “substantiated” by what can be proved to be a work of fiction that no Court would accept, and that have to do with a country that now testifies that it has been the victim of corruption brought by Americans, then the action is both Unconstitutional and political suicide.

    Also, I’m looking for the court case, Trump v. US House of Representatives, to directly challenge the constitutionality of the present attempt. The Impeachment Clause specifically says that Congress can only remove an officer; it cannot convict them of nor charge them with a crime. And the same clause says by implication that the officer must be facing actual or immediately-pending legal charges in the Courts … when in this case the Justice system concluded as a matter of law that this will never occur. The founders specifically excluded “maladministration” – a charge still available in English law – and inserted the Clause that we have today.

    Here’s a list of the GOP senators on the SSCI: Burr (SC)/Rino; Risch (ID)/?; Rubio (FL)/Rino; Collins (ME)/Dem/Rino; Blunt (MO)/Rino; Lankford (OK)/?; Cotton (AR)/?; Cornyn (TX)/Rino. We already know which ones knew/most likely knew what the Democrats were doing…Burr, Rubio, Blunt, Collins and Cornyn. I don’t know about Risch, Lankford or Cotton. I do know that We the People need to start posting about all the GOP members on this committee and demand to know what they were all doing in regards to this coup…especially Burr.

    There is another aspect that may be relevant.
    Anyone listen to Rep Nunes’ interview last Fri with Michael Caputo?
    I did. Several times.

    Michael Caputo outlined Caputo’s contact Spring 2016 with 17 year FBI informant Russian Henry Greenberg, and Greenberg’s contact with Roger Stone. Greenberg was attempting to sell Crooked’s emails to Caputo and Stone. Stone told Greenberg Mr Trump does not pay for dirt. This appears to be before the George Popadopolous contacts.

    Caputo, testifying to SSCI early 2018, had a famous “Dam you to hell” moment. What was not reported was Caputo’s prior words “Who of you spoke with Dan Jones this morning, who received their daily briefing from Jones to obtain questions for me? Whoever it is, dam you to hell.”
    Jones was still dirtying up everyone associated with the entire Trump Campaign in 2018.

    In Rep Nunes’ podcast, Caputo makes mention that he and Rep Nunes had been talking for a while before the podcast, and Caputo was telling Rep Nunes everything he, Caputo, knew.
    Caputo knows alot, as Caputo hired private investigators to trace people and actions.
    And now Rep Nunes knows everything Caputo knows and has found.

    Rep Nunes communicates directly with AG Barr. We know that as Rep Nunes has told us.
    With whom else has Rep Nunes been questioning, and funneling the info to AG Barr?
    What better way to obtain info, without the Swamp seeing and leaking?
    Just a badly educated hunch. But one suspects there is more, unexpected, coming

    Question for the legal experts.

    Should the impeachment actually go to trial in the Senate, could Team Trump do what Wolfe’s attornies threatened and call Warner and other Gang of 8 for Intel oversight as witnesses?

    Get Pelosi on the stand under oath!

    As much as Mitch would probably love to sack Trump, Trump is too powerful to do that now. Doing so would be catastrophic for the GOP going forward. If Trump got busted doing something legitimately wrong, it may be a different conversation, but these allegations are weak at best and more likely a joke. Mitch knows how to put on the facade, which cuts both ways. Knowing he has to save Trump to save his party, he can do a good job making any resulting “trial” look legit while tanking it. This will be more so the case if it looks like Warren gets the nom. Just my opinion of course

    Certainly GOP Senators have a “Money” interest in playing along with Impeachment. Such an effort would be popular in The Swamp if forwarded to the Ssnate by the House.

    However, when their voters catch on, it is highly likely such dalliance will lead to their own self-extinction. (Think McConnell, Sasse, and Burr just for starters.)

    Moreover, if successful, this action will also undoubtedly result in a “Nuclear Winter” for the entire Republican party.

    In spite of all the gossip about Barr and durham investigating I believe they are instrumental in covering it all up. Since we have seen no peeps out of the GOP in the house or the senate that amounts to anything that is affective we should take that to mean they would rather be rid of Trump than create a big ruckus amongst their friends and associates. I expect that it goes to the Senate and we suddenly see a lot of GOP voting with the Democrats because some latest bit of information was really “just a bit too much for them to accept from Trump.” The Dems know that the GOP in the Senate want him out as much as them so they can all get back to work with what they were doing before Trump came along and not go to jail. Hearing not a peep from the house GOP is the harbinger of what we can expect from the senate GOP. Along the way they have had a great deal of opportunity to create a real defense and attack, and they came up with NOTHING!
