BIG PICTURE – White House Responds to Speaker Pelosi Unconstitutional Impeachment Effort – (Full pdf and background)…

Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her Lawfare allies can change House rules (they did). Pelosi and Lawfare can also change House impeachment rules (they did). Pelosi/Lawfare can change committee rules (they did); and in doing so they can remove House republicans from the entire process… Which They Did.  However, what Lawfare and Pelosi cannot change is The U.S. Constitution, which they are desperate to confront.

Speaker Pelosi’s ‘Lawfare House rules‘ and/or ‘Lawfare impeachment rules‘ cannot supersede the constitutional separation of powers.

Nancy Pelosi cannot decree an “official impeachment inquiry”, and as a consequence nullify a constitutional firewall between the Legislative Branch and Executive Branch.

~ Speaker Pelosi and House Attorney Douglas Letter ~

All of that said, there is a distinct difference between a congressional subpoena intended to compel generic testimony, and a congressional subpoena intended to compel impeachment testimony.

Attempting to compel testimony that crosses through the separation of powers; and goes even further in an attempt to penetrate the firewall around executive privilege; requires the House -or a committee therein- to carry “Judicial Authority“.

“Judicial Authority” is not absolute authority, but rather a legal reference and framework that forms the basis for an impeachment ‘compulsion demand‘ (or subpoena) by the House.  Judicial Authority is the House saying they have a legal basis to make a demand.

The reason judicial authority is necessary, is because creating Judicial authority, via the Legislative Branch full chamber vote, gives the Executive Branch access to appeal any legislative demand via the Judicial Branch (federal courts).

Repeat for emphasis:

…The reason judicial authority is constitutionally required, is because creating Judicial authority, gives the Executive Branch a process to appeal any legislative demand via the Judicial Branch (federal courts)….

Absent the creation of judicial authority the House has not created a penalty for non-compliance.  However, absent a penalty for non-compliance the Executive Branch has no process to engage an appellate review by federal courts.   This is the purposeful trick within the Pelosi/Lawfare road-map.

Speaker Pelosi’s current Lawfare-inspired road-map (House and committee rule changes therein) attempts to construct a path to impeachment that avoids asserting House “judicial authority”; because they fear losses from a Judicial Branch ruling.  Those who constructed the road-map are also concerned about outright blocks by the courts in their proceedings.

This process issue was argued by Lawfare member Douglas Letter today during a hearing on the topic of the House Judiciary Committee gaining access to Weissmann/Mueller’s grand jury evidence.  [Expanded Here]

Here’s the bottom line: “Judicial Authority”, granted by a full House vote, gives the House of Representatives more authority in their impeachment construct.  However, “judicial authority” also grants the Executive Branch a path to appeal via the Judicial Branch.

Because the Lawfare/Pelosi roadmap intends to subvert judicial authority, it is destined by design to end up running head-first into a constitutional problem; specifically separation of power and executive privilege.  That predictable constitutional issue will end up with arguments to The Supreme Court.  THAT is why the Democrats have been working for months to delegitimize the Supreme Court.

Please let me repeat for emphasis.  The Lawfare impeachment road-map is designed to conflict with the constitution.  It is a necessary -and unavoidable- feature of the plan, not a flaw.  Pelosi and the Lawfare group know they are creating a constitutional crisis; that is why the background attacks against the Supreme Court were started months ago.

Understanding this, here’s the White House response:

  3. Well, the White House response truly speaks for itself.

    But, it is also important to note that “Ukraine is a Sovereign Nation too!” Even though a great many officials in the American Government (including a very great many “you know who’s” …) seem to have considered this Nation to have been nothing more than their Appointed Football™, it seems now that a great many Ukranians do not agree.

    They elected a brand-new President on their own version of “Drain The Swamp™,” and they and their respective legal institutions are now eager to avail themselves of the mutual-cooperation ratified treaty that we have had with them for quite some time. Yes, I daresay that quite a few “extremely(!) well-placed American Officials” now have quite a bit to be worried about . . .

    Freaking Andy McCarthy showing his nevertrumpism. He’s claiming that Trump pressured Zelinsky to investigate Hunter Biden. Of course, nobody else could think fast enough to counter it with the fact that there was no pressure, per Zelinsky himself. Instead, they all talked about the justification. McCarthy must be under orders to attack Trump from the right.

      The National Review set, with few exceptions, will skillfully destroy the left. But they are devoted to aristocratic honor, according to which one always fights by Marquis of Queensbury rules, even when one’s opponent does not. One of these rules is that if one’s election opponent is found to be a crook, one doesn’t take the opportunity to get him arrested and therefore removed from the race. It isn’t cricket, you know. It’s not what an honorable chap would do, you see. One finishes the campaign and beats him fair and square. A gentleman doesn’t take the easy way out, even if it is more just than the alternatives. Therefore, Donald Trump was in the wrong for pursuing justice with regard to Joe Biden because doing so would benefit Trump.

      As Rudy has pointed out, “Does this mean that if Biden had committed murder we should look the other way during the campaign?”

      It’s an alien set of rules. It’s an Old European form of honor that is totally alien to American thinking.

        The English king, on the other hand, didn’t worry about chivalry – only winning. So he emptied out all his prisons and promised the convicts their freedom if they’d come fight for him. For those that agreed and joined him, the English king gave them a bunch of long bows and arrows and they proceeded to mow the chivalrous French down when they, rather pathetically, got stuck in the mud in full armor. Those folks over at National Review are the chivalrous French.

    Possible outcomes for Nancy:

    1. She backs down or holds the vote the House fails to impeach. Disaster.
    2. She holds the vote and the House impeaches. Senate subpoenas and cross examines under oath the Bidens, the “whistleblowers,” Schiff, and Schiff’s staff. Disaster.
    3. She holds the vote and the House impeaches. Senate immediately holds vote and votes not to convict.

    #3,, though lackluster for Nancy, is the best case scenario now for her. Dems can run on Republican Senate neglecting to do its duty by neglecting to try the case. Will Mitch follow #2 if the House impeaches?

        Mitch and the UNiparty have too many skeletons rattling in their closets to risk a formal impeachment proceeding, which would afford the President a legal defense. This sneaky and unconstitutional Lawfare non-impeachment impeachment construct is as much to protect the Republicons as it is the Democrats.

        Even more so, as the Republicans can now feign indignation at being written out of the process. But never forget that they are the ones who quite intentionally abandoned the House. They willingly ceded their power to the Democrats and left their President high and dry.

        Both Republicans and Democrats are implicated in the ongoing COUP to remove a duly elected President. And we know exactly why they’re doing it, to hide their own indefensible graft and corruption. Treason applies in some cases.

        That phonecall to Ukraine was nothing compared to what is in store for them now, notwithstanding Mitch’s tepid, come-to-MAGA moment.

      2) The leader of Ukraine says himself he was not under any pressure from that call!! This statement by him is consistent with the transcript.

I pray they receive the maximum penalty under the law, and their party and their names be disgraced for all of history, beyond even the level disgrace they currently bring upon themselves.

        The UNiparty and their baying Enemedia hounds sure are making it more palatable for the masses to see this to its logical conclusion.. drain the freaking swamp already! We know who the bad guys are and President Trump isn’t one of them.

        It is interesting that, when this all started, President Trump was painted as an unhinged lunatic while the Enemedia calmly pushed our buttons. Now the tables have turned, and PDJT appears very presidential, calm and resolute, while the Enemedia are positively frothing at the mouth.

    I’m not so sure Pelosi and the dems have thought/planned this to the degree Sundance laid out.

    While the dems have the media and lower courts on their side, they can’t see around EVERY corner, like RBG making it thru a possible SCOTUS hrg.

    I’m not so sure she isn’t already on ice.

    One thing the dems are geniuses at is “timing”. The ⏳ was started today when Schiff came to the podium to speak w/the press (no q’s asked), to begin the narrative “obstruction of justice”.

    The WH refused to allow EU Amb Sondland to be interviewed. Of course, this is “OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE”! Where have we heard that before? Oh yeah, the Mueller/Weissman rpt “unfinished business”.

    So they’ll keep issuing “subpoena letters”, which will be refused, and whammo OBSTRUCTION.

    That’ll be enough to keep the lofo’s hooked…..where have we heard that before? Oh yeah, Mueller.

    So the dems will “prayerfully” seek justice in the lower courts, with an obama/Clinton judge. This will drag on into the Primaries, at which time they’ll engage Plan B. Or C. Or D, arriving at SCOTUS just in time to halt the election.

    Btw, I see where Trey Gowdy has “accepted” Trump’s invitation to join the “impeachment strategy team”, (outside the WH of course).

    Finally fighting back. Pelosi and Schiff are perpetuating the sleaziest, most unethical farce I have ever seen. I’d like to know which Dem candidate the fake whistleblower worked for.

    So when this farce leads to the inevitable constitutional crisis, what can we expect to see happen? Will there be a constitutional convention or convention of states? New amendments? All of this would require enormous amounts of time and political/legal quagmire. Years. 2/3 states approval, etc, etc. What exactly do they hope to gain by running head strong into the predictable Supreme Court’s objections to their bogus impeachment demands? I feel so lost and stupid sometimes.

    What would a constitutional crisis in 2020 look like? It’s not like we are in the thralls of a nationwide battle over issues concerning slavery or women’s suffrage. It’s just so hard to imagine that all of this effort is being spent just to reverse one election of one man—President Trump even if it’s just to delegitimize him in the media and in the minds of the public. They’ve already tried that and failed.

    How does a confrontational Supreme Court battle benefit them if they lose? They’ve had to pay people to protest before and their numbers haven’t grown since 2016. They aren’t exactly raising a lot of money, either. They have lost support. Outside the beltway, the media, and the larger sanctuary cities, who the Hell supports them? I get that PT is an existential threat to globalist interests but to be this crazy and unhinged to the point of consciously destroying the Constitution, his enemies in Congress and DC must be guilty of some pretty horrific criminal behavior that goes beyond mere greed. There is something very sinister-even demonic-to this level of hatred. Its bigger than my comprehension.

      ” There is something very sinister-even demonic-to this level of hatred. ”

      Yes. I don’t know if it, among other things, portends the End Times, or is just palpable evidence of the demonic powers at work in this country at this time. But the fact that we battle “not against flesh …” is more evident now than any time I can think of, up to and including the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

      One of the things that I love about the Treehouse is the consistent admonition to pray for our President/VP/Cabinet/Country, etc., the offering of prayers, and the many who choose to join in these prayers.

    The letter isn’t for Pelosi. It’s for the Supreme Court. Trump’s team is expecting Democrats to try and set up a court battle over “obstruction”. Trump’s point is that he does not have to comply with a kangaroo court which is intended to set him up – to frame him – for obstruction.

    The key rules issue in case of an impeachment vote by the House seems to be how the House “managers” (Congressmen chosen to present the case to the Senate trial) would be selected. If they are all Pelosi slaves then the Senate will see only the material presented by them, plus some witnesses called in by Trump’s counsel. Presumably the Lawfare people have thought this through, but how much freedom to manipulate do they have under current rules?

    John Solomon and Hannity are hearing that it may be difficult to get a conviction on the FISA court abuse ( Horowitz Investigation) so what’s likely to happen is just a lot of people being embarrassed.

    There you go!

    That explains the delay delay delay.

    By the time we figure out that they are running the clock, time is up! Democrats already impeached using their fake impeachment and got a hold of grand jury info to smear Trump, his family and all around him.

    There’s something in the grand jury material that need and are desperate to get it.

    Remember one lawyer leaked grand jury information to someone… Schifft? Whatever that is, Democrats need to get their hands on legally to use it against Trump.

    They could care less about impeachment, Senate Trial or losing in court. They just need some informal impeachment and some Obama’s judge to gift them with grand jury material access, I’m sure it’s all lined up.

        Something to consider:

        If the real purpose of the Mueller Report was impeachment (and it was), then the real grand jury “audience” is Congress.

        Team Mueller wanted this.

      We should already know this but many still don’t. Things are only going to get worse in the long run and the tick tock crew has been a joke since the get go. They knew it too but ratings were more important.

      The fact is – the democrats wouldn’t be playing this silly game, along with the rest of the system, were it not for the fact that they knew the delays were coming. The rig is still in.

      It doesn’t matter. Demoncraps are moving quickly and when the truth comes out they have achieved their objective: get a hold of grand jury material.

      It’s all they want.

      Everything else is a pretext to get it.

      All they need is an Obama judge to grant them access.

      They are working on it quietly while we are so proud of ourselves for uncovering the WB’s farce.

      It doesn’t matter! As soon as they get their hands on the grand jury material they will throw the WB under the bus… they just want the GJ information.


  41. As Sundance kindly linked for us, the battle for access to Grand Jury information began today in Federal Court with none other than the Deputy Director of the Civil Division (think Che Guevara territory) representing DOJ, and by extension POTUS, in battle to keep Grand Jury info confidential as mandated by law.
    I’ve never seen a more horrid, detached, un-informed lawyer in my life, Elizabeth Shapiro, who spoke in 3- word sentences of incoherencies against the a determined lawfare wacko, the aforementioned Mr. Letter who represents the House in its quest for the confidential information.
    The President should have a chat with Mr. Barr.

    “The Lawfare impeachment road-map is designed to conflict with the constitution. It is a necessary -and unavoidable- feature of the plan, not a flaw. Pelosi and the Lawfare group know they are creating a constitutional crisis; that is why the background attacks against the Supreme Court were started months ago.”

    Words and Actions that clearly establish Pelosi, her cohorts and even quite a few neverTrumpers as willfully breaking their oaths of office.

    Another reason the CIA, FBI and DOJ were severely corrupted and damaged as the normal expectation would be that the FBI detects and nips groups conspiring to destroy the Constitution before they put their plans into destructive motion.

    AG Barr will have his hands full prosecuting this massive conspiracy to destroy SCOTUS and the Constitution while deposing a legitimate very effective and quite wonderful President!


  43. k4jjj says:

    The problem for Democrats is the disintegration of their battle strategy. Their goal is to remove the President but they have no coherent strategy and keep careening like a cue ball from one edge of the pool table to another. They can’t keep their frantic herd of cats moving in the same direction. There are 50 Democrats trying to row the impeachment boat across a swift current using pancake spatulas. They are like ballroom dancers trying to waltz smoothly when overcome with an agonizing urge to run and urinate.

  45. Riwdyone says:

    Can anyone give a logical reason as to why all of the signers of the bogus FISA warrants have not been indicted yet? Is it because the DOJ IG report will cover this and he does not have authority to do so? And why must we wait for a conclusion to Durham’s investigation before people are charged? Isn’t that how the Feds usually work by charging, then dealing the little fish to get to the big fish? This is what Mueller did, yet I see no evidence of “our team” doing likewise. This does not inspire confidence that justice will be served.

    Third, there is a snarkiness that perfectly fits the threat.

    That is a well written response. I wish people understood right and wrong and acted accordingly. Like a protection order against an ex, it is still just a piece of paper. A raging psychopath, in this case raging psychopaths, are not going to be thwarted by a piece of paper.

    Best advice given for protecting yourself against anyone hell bent on causing you harm is to keep that piece of paper where it belongs, in your pocket. And, when confronted by the raging psychopath(s), you draw your weapon and use lethal force to insure your future.
