Ranking Member Doug Collins Discusses Pelosi-Schiff and Lawfare Impeachment Scheme Progress…

Representative Doug Collins appears on Fox News with Maria Bartiromo to discuss the specific strategy behind the Pelosi-Shiff and Lawfare ongoing impeachment effort.

Collins explains why Adam Schiff is holding hearings behind closed doors so they can selectively leak out information that supports the Democrat narrative of impeachment, while also hiding the evidence that refutes their construct.  Additionally, Rep Collins explains his expectations for the upcoming FISA review by Inspector General Horowitz.

Speaker Pelosi, with forethought and planning by the Lawfare Alliance, is intentionally using non-jurisdictional committees because she is manipulating the process.  It’s the same reason why the House Intelligence, House Foreign Affairs and House Oversight committees cannot legally send out “Impeachment-based Subpoenas“; they have no impeachment jurisdiction.  {Go Deep} and {Go Deep} to understand why.

The “impeachment” subpoenas’ are not technically subpoenas because the basis for the requests, impeachment inquiry, is not within the jurisdiction of the three committees. So the committees are sending out demand letters, calling them subpoenas (media complies with the narrative), and hoping the electorate do not catch on to the scheme.

The House democrats will keep doing this until someone in the media begins to hit them with hard questions that expose the nonsense.

Chairman Adam Schiff (House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence); Chairman Elijah E. Cummings (Committee on White House Oversight; and Chairman Eliot L. Engel (House Committee on Foreign Affairs) continue sending carefully worded letters under the guise of ‘subpoenas’. [Main Link Here]

Again, just like all prior examples, this is not a “subpoena”, it is a letter calling itself a “subpoena” and carries NO legal penalty for non-compliance. A legislative “letter” needs to carry judicial enforcement authority –A PENALTY– in order to be a “subpoena”.

There is no penalty that can be associated with these demands because the Legislative Branch has not established compulsion authority (aka judicial enforcement authority), as they attempt to work through their non-constitutional “impeachment inquiry” process.

It has long been well established by SCOTUS that Congress has lawful (judicial authority) subpoena powers pursuant to its implied responsibility of legislative oversight.  However, that only applies to the powers enumerated in A1§8. Neither foreign policy (Ukraine) nor impeachment have any nexus to A1§8.  The customary Legislative Branch subpoena power is limited to their legislative purpose. 

There is an elevated level of subpoena, made power possible by SCOTUS precedent, that carries inherent penalties for non-compliance, and is specifically allowed for impeachment investigations.  That level of elevated House authority requires a full House authorization vote.

In this current example the Legislative Branch is expressing their “impeachment authority” as part of the Legislative Branch purpose.  So that raises the issue of an entirely different type of subpoena:… A demand from congress that penetrates the constitutional separation of powers; and further penetrates the legal authority of Executive Branch executive privilege.

It was separately established by SCOTUS during the Nixon impeachment investigation that *IF* the full House votes to have the Judiciary Committee commence an impeachment investigation, then Judiciary (only) has subpoena power that can overcome executive privilege claims. 

There has been NO VOTE to create that level of subpoena power.

As a consequence, the House has not created a process to penetrate the constitutionally inherent separation of powers, and/or, the legally recognized firewall known as ‘executive privilege’.   The House must vote to authorize the committee impeachment investigation, and through that process the committee gains judicial enforcement authority.  This creates the penalty for non-compliance with an impeachment subpoena.

A demand letter only becomes a “subpoena”, technically meaning: ‘a request for the production of documents with a penalty for non-compliance’, when the committee has judicial enforcement authority. That process establishes an enforcement penalty.

The current demand letters cannot carry a penalty because the demands do not contain judicial enforcement authority…. because the impeachment investigation was not authorized by the chamber.

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

Absent a penalty for non-compliance, which factually makes a subpoena a ‘subpoena’, 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.

Pelosi and Lawfare’s plans are designed for public consumption; she/they are creating the illusion of something that doesn’t exist.  The purpose of all this fraudulent impeachment activity is to create support for an actual impeachment process.

Because the current Lawfare/Pelosi roadmap intends to work around judicial enforcement authority, the impeachment process 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 appears to be why Democrats and left-wing activists have been working for months to de-legitimize the Supreme Court. They always intended to run into this problem. They planned for it.

The Lawfare impeachment road-map is designed to conflict with the constitution. It is a necessary -and unavoidable- feature of their impeachment plan, not a flaw.

Speaker Pelosi, working through a carefully constructed political dynamic assembled by the hired staff from the Lawfare alliance, has sold her constituency on an impeachment process that structurally doesn’t exist.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi could never succeed in the scheme were she not assisted by a compliant media.  Pelosi is burning a constitutional process.

Speaker Pelosi does not want to engage the judicial branch, nor does she want to give the target (President Trump) the opportunity to engage the judicial branch, ie. court.

The judicial branch would likely upend her House committee “official impeachment inquiry” scheme, just as D.C. District Court Chief Judge Beryl Howell recently did to Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler for “gaming the system“.  Speaker Pelosi’s unilateral decree for an “official impeachment inquiry” without a House vote will not pass court review.

This is a carefully constructed subversion of the constitutional processes and procedures.

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.

As a result of the need to create the optics of something that doesn’t exist; and following the roadmap they outlined in 2018 [See Here and Here]; the Lawfare contractors within the committees’ needed to construct a penalty mechanism that benefits the impeachment agenda but avoids the court system.  As a result we see this:

Nice Lawfare trick huh?…

            Veni, vini, vinci. I came, I saw, I conquered. Julius Caesar. Root word of invincible? Vinci.
            Btw, I took Latin because it was not a spoken language so its only rule was a “v” is pronounced “w”. We had a lot of fun making up offices our third year so that the entire class could list an officer of the Latin Club on their college applications. I was a VP, gigglesnort. None of us needed the dress as we were involved in more prestigious organizations but it was fun!

Of course, their motives are entirely derived from self-interest, whether that be covering up their own crimes or adding to their own power. When was the last time you heard any of them profess love for America or our Constitution?

    Special Note: Best you open your eyes/ears America, the truth is everywhere! Do you have the courage to see/hear? Soldier/Cop/Grunt, Retired

    TO: Americans
    cc: President Trump, Members of Congress, The Media, Academia, The Bureaucracy.

    Note: This message/comment is being posted to any article providing examples of the actions of the political class, the media, bureaucrats, and academia proving the soldier’s lessons learned and the reason for submitting this comment.

    RE: Rape, Pillage, Plunder; American You’ve Been Had!

    After 26 years of active duty and into my third year as a police chief, I published 12 of 15 of what I titled as; ‘A Soldier’s Lessons Learned’. They were to serve as the prelude to a book I was writing. The title of the book was meant to establish in a few words the overall conclusion of the book, which lays out in detail how the I arrived at each of the lessons learned. The original title of the book was; ‘Rape, Pillage, Plunder; American You’ve Been Had!’ Side Note: After B.H. Obama was elected to his second term the title was changed to: ‘Rape, Pillage, Plunder; American You’ve Been Had and It’s Your Own Damn Fault!’ Sadly, since Donald Trump came down that escalator Americans are being provided daily proof of the validity of the lessons learned and the title of the book! Soldier/Cop/Grunt, Retired

    A Soldier/Cop’s Lessons Learned

    Note: In an attempt to bring the lessons learned into the current political climate I have inserted a short comment where I deemed appropriate.

    1. Soldiers (ground combat soldiers, that is) do not fight first and foremost for their country, the flag, motherhood, nor apple pie. Before all else, soldiers engaged in ground combat fight for their fellow soldiers and their unit.

    Note: Were this one not true I fear to imagine how many of us combat veterans would have already lost all control and commence to apply our skills against those who pose the greatest threat to the American people!

    2. The Seven C’s of Leadership according to a 1980 survey of 1646 of Vietnam era ground combat veterans listed of the order of their importance are; Candor, Competence, Consistency, Commitment, Courage, Compassion, and Courtesy. The reason the soldiers in the survey chose the word “candor” is because to them candor encompasses both omission and co-mission. To a combat soldier lack of absolute candor, be it co-mission or omission, are equal sins! In short, soldiers expect/demand absolute candor from their leaders before all else.

    Note: Members of Congress take note. In my opinion you on the left have proven you are masters of Co-mission, while you on the right have proven you are the masters of omission! In short, all of you have proven you are cowards and trying to instill the Seven C’s of Leadership in any of you is a waste of time!

    3. Omitted.

    4. The American people are the most effectively lied to people in modern times thanks primarily to the American political class, the American bureaucracy, the American media, and American academia.

    5. Arrogance coupled with ignorance equals stupidity.

    6. The greatest threats to the American people are the corrupt and/or incompetent politicians/bureaucrats/academicians found at every level of government/academia, and the majority of the American so-called media.

    7. Most of the politicians/bureaucrats/academicians I have encountered during my years as a soldier/cop I most kindly refer to as; self-serving, witless, cowards.

    8-13. Omitted.

    14. After carefully watching the whole of the political class since Donald J. Trump walked down that escalator in Trump Tower to date, I can say without reservation that most of the group will sell their souls and our bodies just to remain in power. (Added 2019)

    Note: Sorry, not enough room herein to start to list the individual personalities whose activities will provide absolute proof of this statement. But, one might want to start with B & M Obama, B & H Clinton, J & H Biden, etc…

    15. Want to see what the United States of America will look like if the left takes control of the government? Take your pick, New York City, Baltimore, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, or the complete package; California. (Added 2019)

    Soldier/Cop/Grunt, Retired

    PS

    Please, one final note: Contrary to the implications of several of my lessons learned, I have long ago abandoned any desire to negate (Negate, the procedure that the British SAS [Special Air Service] utilizes to transfer subjects from the persons of interest list to the persons no longer of interest list.) those of the any of four communities who would threaten and/or interfere with soldiers/cops actions to protect/serve the American people. No, these days I would support rounding up the most obnoxious of the communities, issuing each of them a tent and a bus ticket to California, and instructing them that if they leave California it best be on a sailboat (must consider the environment you know) heading to China!

Why doesn’t he leak the closet meeting interview points that devastate the entire farce Schiff doesn’t want to release publicly? It’s not classified material. It’s just a bunch of democrat pigs rooting around for truffels; trying to conjure up another plan of garbage to sustain their desperate need to impeach him.

    An accurate figure of how many Americans actually support Impeaching P Trump based on shyster Schiff’s and his litigious Lawfare handler’s unconvincing political orchestrations would be an important “vital sign” regarding the mental health and state of the USA. Especially, when this present Schiff idiocy follows so soon after 2 years of intense coverage of the fake Collusion scandal and eventual exoneration. The gullibility of the Dem’s dupes is mind boggling. FNC’s unreliable and corrupted polls have the impeachment support number over 50% while others are in the mid forties.

    if any of these numbers are close to the actual figure, it does not bode well for the future health of the country. This growing mass of imbecility and foolhardiness is becoming a large, malignant Dem tumor on the nation that needs to be excised and radiated ASAP. The wise Electoral voters of 2016 stepped up and voted in a leader that has steered their country back onto a far better course than the crooked one’s charted course and hopefully even more Trump voters will do the same in 2020 when their good judgement is needed even more.

    Our senate is letting the Dems in the house do anything they want and have left POTUS twisting in the wind all by himself. I want to know if Nunes, Collins, Jordan, Meadows or Gaetz have tried to enlist the senate’s, and in particular, Lindsey Graham, to at least hold shadow hearings on each witness that are open to the public. There seems to be no cooperation, unity of action or even communication between the house republicans and the senate republicans. It’s almost as if the two factions don’t even acknowledge the others existence and I find that deeply troubling. And if that is the case, why aren’t the house republicans speaking out and stating that the republican senate won’t work with them or cooperate. It was only after that scum bag Paul Ryan left the house that we learned he had been refusing Nunes request for subpoenas and had been holding up the entire process. Not one republican in the house utilized a press briefing or other public disclosure to expose Ryan at the time Ryan was shutting the investigation down. The house republicans need to go public with their need for the senates help and public with the fact that the senate won’t help, if indeed that is the case. We really, except for the few do gooders mentioned above, need to be told the truth about the senators who are impeding any joint effort to protect the president so we can vote their asses out.

I believe that we will find far less in the President’s returns than in those of a majority of Congressmen’s, that is assuming they didn’t lie on them like the lies they are now telling the American citizenry.

    “The House democrats will keep doing this until someone in the media begins to hit them with hard questions that expose the nonsense.”

    The subtlety of SD’ sense of humor is likely lost on many readers. A bravo and a guffaw are equally appropriate plaudits of recognition. 🙂

    MSM will never hit their political masters. They don’t think that way. Its a marathon for them. They will not stop until perhaps, he begins his second term. But even then I doubt it. People need to go to jail and Durham and Barr needs to act decisively in favor of the rule of law. Then we will see change.

        Seneca, what you say is so true.

        Sadly, they have already stifled free speech.

        IMO the greatest culprit is the so called protectors of free speech, the Media.

        The positive however, is that the MSM has been flushed out.

        I am a cynic and a skeptic..yet remain strangely upbeat and content.

        However, my contempt. No. Hatred of the MSM is growing by th day.

        Thank you all,

        God bless PDJT

        • Dekester- Here’s an example of how all this Leftist hatred filters down into the general brainwashed populace.

          I am running for office in a small town in NY. I made the mistake of criticizing (on social media) a new gender and sexual mores curriculum that is being used in the elementary schools.
          Well all hell broke loose, and I now have a virtual FB mob of townspeople ready to burn my house down. To add gas to the fire, they know that I am an unrepentant supporter of our President Trump.
          The vile threats and comments that are being posted are beyond belief. Anyone in town who supports me is rightfully afraid to speak up.
          The left has successfully killed free speech in many ways. It is truly unbelievable.

    The reference to “adverse inference about you and the President” meaning a potential charge of “obstruction” if the demand letters these grifters attempt to con the public into thinking are subpoenas are not obeyed is just more of the same threats Trump’s legal team took so seriously there was not challenge to the such Mueller events as:

    1. The unilateral canceling of Trump’s attorney-client privilege in the Cohen indictment and search warrant affair. In short, if Trump challenged it, asking the courts for a stay and injunction, would “infer” obstruction.

    2. Not accepting Jeff Session’s offer of resignation on the news of Mueller’s appointment by treacherous Rosenstein, or firing Sessions later, would also “infer” obstruction.

    I mean, what is next for Lawfare–“You hired a defense attorney. We INFER obstruction because you hired a defense attorney.”

    If these things had been challenged in court, they would never have been upheld. Obstruction requires an overt act to impede or stop completely a legitimate investigation. Look at what happened when “Stealth Sessions” finally did get to resign. NOTHING. Look at what happened when Barr told Mueller to wrap it up. NOTHING. No one can be convicted on a prosecutor INFERRING squat about an accused. “Inference” suggests “reasonable doubt of innocence” is enough to convict an accused. No, the prosecutor needs proof BEYOND reasonable doubt, and no inference of any kind will get a prosecutor a guilty verdict, nor should it.

    The fact that nothing was done when Sessions resigned and Mueller was closed down by Barr proves this “inference” stuff is horse manure and Lawfare knows it.

    In the end, these people cannot cover that DC has become “a hive of scum and villainy,” committing high crimes all over the world and thinking nothing of it. Extortion, racketeering, embezzlement, influence peddling, money laundering, and more. Everyone was involved, specifically including Biden, Obama, Pelosi, Schiff and Nadler. So: “that, not partisan politics,” is really what is driving everything. They want to evict the President who is a troublemaker rather than an enabler, shut down all the pesky investigations, give the Ukrainians six hours to get rid of their nosy President, and thus return to “normal,” while trying to forget that the mistake of 2016 ever happened and taking steps to ensure that the American People never get a chance to do it again.

      P.S.: Joe Biden’s now infamous boast, including “call him [Obama],” is most telling. Not only because it is utterly blatant – Biden was utterly relaxed, even jovial – but because of how the Press and the rest of DC reacted to it, both now and at the time.

      Now, it’s a conspiracy theory, debunked, pay no attention to the little man behind the curtain. Then, it wasn’t even news. It was normal. International crime was (and still is) routine. Congressmen who ought to earn about $700,000 during a two-year term are suddenly multi-millionaires and gosh. Nobody asks why. If you asked any of the impeachment drivers what were they doing in Ukraine, they’d be very indignant. But these days, you also see a flash of real fear in their eyes. Who is this man who has just walked into the Temple Marketplace, bearing a whip and calling Washington, DC “his Father’s house?!?!”

    Since nearly all have commented commendably on the substance, I’ll go low and snarky.

    Maria — we appreciate most of what you dedicate your program to. But can you not, at long last, learn to pronounce MIF-SUD??!

    It’s not “Miss (Elmer) Fud(d). It’s MIF(fed about the) SUD(s on the floor).

    MIF-SUD….MIF-SUD….MIF-SUD.
    See, it’s really quite easy.

    As for the marbles-in-the-mouth congressman from GA….

    As a mid 50’s average joe from Texas, you have got to be f/n kidding me we’re even talking about this, we passed ludicrous months ago! Pick a novel by all the biggies, John le Carr’e, Ludlum, Clancy…….you get the point, I’ve read novels with more believable “scandals “! The scary part is that they think they’re going to pull this off. I sense a serious beat down coming, hopefully it’ll open some eyes before it’s to late.
