    Then what? A sternly worded letter to Nancy Pelosi? Why don’t you go explain to Graham about how he’s actually the head of the Judiciary committee. And the republican chairs of all the other useless committees that are apparently only powerful when held by democrats. Argh!

            I couldn’t find the segment but I think it has to do with SCOTUS maintaining separation of powers… In other words, the Senate makes their own internal rules, so does the House. That is what it seemed that Dr. Eastman was explaining.

          The courts is in this, because Nadler is trying to get inforamtion that is selaed, by Rule 6(e), by the courts.
          Collins is objecting to Nadler’s petition to unseal grand jury material. It’s been in Court since the end of July. First hearing next week, unless the judge pushes it out.

            This, exactly. And he’s filled an amicus brief, a brief opposing the release of the grand jury material. It just makes me so mad that the vichy republicans won’t do their job. Look at how helpless Ryan always seemed. Sham! Look at Nancy. Same position. Look at how much power she has! That’s what that scumbag Ryan had, but he would only use it to stab Nunes in the back and before that pay for everything Obama. And look at the Senate now! Does anyone doubt for a second that Schumer would change the Senate rules? Or refuse to hold an impeachment trial? Or even summarily dismiss it as defective? The democrats absolutely would do those things for a democrat president, even if the charges were severe and certain. The vichy republicans just stand around saying things like “someone should look into that”. Argh!

          One way or the other it’s going to the senate, Mitch has already said so.
          And behind the scenes, he’ll be pushing the GOPes (rhymes with dopes) to vote to convict.
          Why? Because if Biden is taken down for family corruption, so will Mitch. His wife’s family have all become multi-millionaires the same way Hunter Biden did, only in sweetheart Chinese shipping company deals.
          Mitch knows that he’s just as exposed as the Bidens, and his turn will be next. It’s all in Schweitzer’s book. Mitch wants Trump impeached, to save his own sorry corrupt a$$.

            Great observation Matt on B*tch McConnell!!

            It seems to be that the Left/Deep State/RINOs are starting to make MISTAKES, A LOT OF THEM as they try & roll out their newest offensive against President Trump. Consequently, their mistakes are being exposed almost immediately with even the NYT chipping in an occasional pertinent finding.

            I am starting to believe that President Trump, AG Barr, Mr. Durham, + PT’s outstanding legal team (Jay Sekulow, Rudy, et al) + Joe DeGenova & Victoria T are all taking it these bastards from all angles. Indeed, the Black Hats seem to be as much on DEFENSE while they try to stay on OFFENSE against PT.

            Matt, can you add to your insights as to how you currently see this unfolding? Do you agree that President Trump is now WINNING against these bastards? And lastly, how much longer must we wait before we start to see some formal INDICTMENTS/PROSECUTIONS of these bgastards??

        • Did you read the brief or are you letting some talking head on TV do your thinking for you? Collins is making a Constitutional argument. Does the Constitution grant a committee the full impeachment powers of the House? Powers that are based on a vote by the chamber. Committees began in 1813. Do the courts want to grant a handful of people such power? We shall see. Of course all of this can simply become moot if Nancy has a vote that passes.

            At least then, she would be acting appropriately as House Speaker(regardless of whether we think or want Trump to be impeached.). This is more than about Trump. It’s about the office of the Presidency, the Constitution and what impeachment is supposed to be (high crimes and misdemeanors). Make no mistake, Lawfare is engaging in law war against the Constitution and if Lawfare is victorious then the country is lost, as over throwing a sitting President becomes fair game.

            The good news is that as seen in the Flynn group case, the law is not actually on their side. It’s on ours. We will ultimately win in Court.

Nancy didn’t hold a vote in the House to get approval to conduct this inquiry from all of her members, so what she is doing is a ruse to get Grand Jury info on President Trump.

    The crazed foolhardy Dems are trying to destroy POTUS and his admin. by flying below the legal and Constitutional radar. This is what happens when you hire high priced politicized lawyers to navigate a political course for you. They appear to be only interested in pleasing their political clients and are coldly detached from the greater needs of the people in the country. They thrive in the vicious swamp.

    Pelosi has foolishly handed faux Impeachment powers to Adam Schiff, who’s acting like a power mad monarch or tyrant. If the U.S. systems of Justice and Constitutional governance can’t stop him and his like minded chaotic Dems from constantly harassing and threatening Justice Kavanaugh and the President with Impeachment or worse; from compiling long lists of House subpoenaed American citizens without a shred of credible evidence and threatening them with contempt and on and on, then it might be the beginning of the end of the U.S. political system. Dysfunctional gov’ts like dysfunctional families don’t stay together when a breaking point is reached.

      “greater needs of the people in the country”

      For the Democrats, the people of the country are treated like Democrats have treated blacks for years—throw an occasional bone their way to make them think they care, give lip service to their cause, use photo ops with their mouthpieces for show, and keep on blowing smoke to cover real actions. Outside of that, they go all Rhett Butler on them (Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn). Worked on blacks so now, they’ve expanded to the whole party. They wind Antifa up and send them out to intimidate and destroy and then go in Casablanca mode (I’m shocked, shocked I say). All the while they are trampling on the rights of citizens in order for personal gain.
      If Congressional committees can demand all kinds of information on the President and administration (in the “name” of oversight) then why can’t We the People demand information on them (okay put a required number of signatures to initiate) but if they knew their “deeds” might be exposed, then maybe there would be less graft and illegality in Congress (the biggest group of cons assembled in the world, including any and all prisons).

        The sad part is that this all boils down to elections. Without fair elections we have no representation. People have been checked out of politics for a very long time, because nothing has ever changed in that regard, until businessman Donald Trump entered the arena.

        Now, everyone can see what we’ve been missing. At least those of us who are still paying attention.

        Most of these crooks are installed, not elected, and THAT must change if we are to save our Constitutional Republic. It’s now or never.

        Which counties still use Soros’ fake voting terminals? Why isn’t voter ID mandated? The same people supposedly worried about foreign election “interference” defend the same foreign nationals inside the voting booth!

        The only reason these Marxists haven’t gone all-out Stalin on us —yet— is that we’ve been the ones carrying everybody else’s water, apparently.

        Without hardworking American consumers there would be no EU economy or socialism to speak of. After all, *somebody* must support all their lazy a$$es. Why these multinational oligarchs insist on killing the goose that lays their golden eggs, I’ll never know. They had it soooo good.

        Americans are a proud people. We have a strong work ethic and we are also very tolerant and charitable. But beat us like a rented mule and it’s
        o-v-e-r. The UNiparty has greatly miscalculated our affection for them. They are in a heap of trouble now!

    At this point, the Democrats have pretty much insulated President Trump from any meaningful impeachment charges. It’s like they have vaccinated him (by crying wolf too many times). Abby Huntsman sort of said that on the View yesterday.

    Now when Lawfare comes up with more “charges”, people just roll their eyes, “Not this shhit again.” Thanks Dems.

    Sort of like Hallmark Christmas movies – same script, different names (charges), over and over and over again. They don’t even realize what fools they are making of themselves.

    The DemoKKKrats have truly become the party of crime, corruption and coverups!! They will stop at nothing to discredit and destroy President Trump and his attempts to restore liberty and prosperity of the American people! What is saddest to me is to see how numerous the “useful idiot children” are who think they are fighting “The Man” but are actually doing the bidding of our evil, corrupt ruling elite: the government/corporate/media complex! These IDIOTS think they are being noble by harassing elderly women in the streets, calling BLACK conservatives white supremacists, and shutting down anyone who disagrees with their Progressive religious cult’s beliefs.

    The DemoKKKrats will take no actions to advance the cause of the American people because they don’t really like the sweaty, smelly working class, and small business owners are just as vile in their eyes. The only people they approve of are the urban media and education elite who not only are, oh,so much smarter, but smell better, too. Corporate elites are okay, as long as they have plenty of money for campaign donations and other forms of graft and bribery. Look at the high paying jobs that Mueller landed after he left the FBI and before he became the Impeach Trump Special Counsel. Only smart, nice smelling people need apply; for you lower and middle class peons we’ve got some prescriptions for pot and opioids available, and as soon as we gain enough power we’ll get you into a nursing home and start building the Matrix.

    side note: I called my local conservative morning talk show yesterday. The host was grasping for explanations for the Schiff hearings, etc. His call screener wouldn’t allow me on the air with an explanation of “Lawfare”. Guess I was deemed a crazy,

    “BREAKING: The Democrat whistleblower who complained about Trump digging up dirt in Ukraine was himself helping dig up dirt in Ukraine against Trump (and Manafort) while working in the Obama White House during 2016 campaign.”

    I think it’s pretty simple; it says the House shall have the sole power of impeachment.

    It doesn’t say the SPEAKER of the House.

    I believe there is court precedent dating back to the Watergate era, wherein the U.S. District Court of Appeals ruled that Congress could have access to grand jury testimony it would not normally be entitled to…

    …in which the Court mentioned the Impeachment Resolution vote that initiated the Nixon impeachment proceedings as an important, possibly necessary step in the process.

    Is there not an honest judge, investigator, CIA, FBI, investigative reporter etc etc left in America? How can PT get fair treatment when even his own party seems to want to take him down, all saying they support him with their fingers crossed behind their back. Then they hide in the reeds and let the house take the blame. This is so sad. I mean if they really believe Trump is guilty of all of this, why dont they just let the chips fall? Why do they have to direct it? If its the truth, then let it be discovered. They cant because there is no truth in any of it. But both sides have skeletons in the closet that they dont want to come out. The Dems that dont really agree with this are too scared to say anything, and the Republicans just wait it out and then wipe the sweat off their brows and let the Dems take the blame. If they did vote to impeach, the Senate has the vote to remove him, how strong will they stand together? Or will all the snakes come out of the reeds once the dirty work is done. This runs so deep. They really do have to limit terms, it keeps the creeps at least a bit honest, and if they cant keep their hand out of the cookie jar, at least they can be out in a relatively short term, not career crooks. Why would Trump, a billionaire in his own right want to pad his wallet? Ask the others how they got rich…certainly not on a regular politician salary. They like to say it was Daddy’s money….well duh…where did Hillary’s money come from….? Plus didnt Trump lose all of the daddy money and then rebuild his own wealth with hard work? I sure this all works out, but boy oh boy, he sure has a mountain to climb.

    The spin-off obligations that fall on conscientious Congressional members are time-consuming and expensive….and those spin-off meetings, reports, filings, and travels are going to escalate in both financial and time consumption.

    The left’s capacity to act like three-year-olds who cover their eyes and say “you can see me!” is becoming less and less useful in the context of reality, except to those who are determined to maintain their personal deceptions.

    The left (and that includes acquiescent and cowardly RINOs) really need to be slapped up side the head. For about three years.

    Did I miss something, or did they not reference the fact that someone was recently fired for leaking grand jury info? That would seem plausibly relevant…

    How does Trump keep tricking them into thinking they’ve finally got him?
    The white hats must have completely weaponized the deep state leaking program. They must be constantly sending false transcripts and documents back and forth within the government…every one of them with identifiying dates and information.
    I’m pretty sure they’ve also kept some of the known leakers within the administration on purpose…possibly even department heads like the CIA…better for FISA 2-hopping.

    This would explain a lot. Looks like Biden and Pelosi have a good deal in common.

      Yes, I think it does explain why the DemoKrats are scurrying around like an overturned anthill. The funny part is they do not see that all this hurried hustle and bustle does is make them look even more guilty. Panic does have that effect and it is contagious. Those who might have maintained a low profile and ridden it out are now getting swept up into the furor and placed into positions from which there is no retreat. It may not, to paraphrase Churchill, be the beginning of the end, but it certainly could be the end of the beginning. When the generals begin to panic, where does that leave the troops?

    Note to Congressman Collins,

    Sir, there is no need to have to explain why you HAD to file your Amicus brief.

    This is akin to having to clean out a backed-up septic tank!

    In short, it’s a dirty job, but SOMEBODY HAD TO DO IT!!

    We the People stand up & applaud your courage & thank you for your actions!!
