Pelosi Gaslighting Continues – False Claims: Administration “defying lawful subpoenas & document requests”…

Nancy Pelosi continues to mislead her ‘impeachment’ constituents.  Unfortunately the compliant media is refusing to hold her accountable.  House Democrat leadership has taken a climate assessment of democrat House members and Speaker Pelosi announced they will not hold a House impeachment authorization vote.   As a direct and specific consequence all committee subpoenas do not carry a penalty for non-compliance.

(Source)

“Lawful subpoenas”, literally require an enforcement mechanism; that’s the “poena” part of the word.  The enforcement mechanism is a judicial penalty, and that penalty can only be created if the House votes to authorize an impeachment inquiry.

Absent a vote to authorize, the Legislative Branch has not established compulsion authority (aka judicial enforcement authority), as they attempt to work through their quasi-constitutional “impeachment inquiry” process.

Instead of subpoenas, Adam Schiff (House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence); and Chairman Eliot L. Engel (House Committee on Foreign Affairs) can only send out request letters. The compliance is discretionary based on the outlook of the recipient.

It is likely, highly likely, Nancy Pelosi does not have the votes to proceed with a full House impeachment authorization; so Pelosi, Schiff, Engel and Cummings have to rely on the duplicity of the media to help them hide their scheme. So far the media is complying.

Speaker Pelosi & Lawfare’s impeachment scheme can only succeed with a compliant media protecting it.  So far the media has been entirely compliant in not explaining the fraudulent basis for the construct.  If the media would ask questions the fraud would collapse.

Adam Schiff has to hide his hearings because the foundation of the impeachment fraud is to create a public impression.  There is no structural impeachment process or guideline being followed.  The committee leadership are using the closed door hearings to leak information to the media to create the needed narrative.

A legislative “letter” or demand request 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 the Judiciary Committee 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 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 destined to collide with.

Speaker Pelosi’s ‘Lawfare House rules‘ and/or ‘Lawfare impeachment rules‘ cannot supersede the constitutional separation of powers.  She is well aware of this.  Nancy Pelosi cannot decree an “official impeachment inquiry”, and as a consequence nullify a constitutional firewall between the Legislative Branch and Executive Branch.

Pelosi’s impeachment scheme requires a compliant media to support her construct.  So far, they have.

      Now this Pelosi led codel to Jordan hits the papers. I would say that there is something in the Erdogan letter that Pelosi did not want to acknowledge knowing about, because whatever she’s doing in Jordan is meant to be counter-productive to that letter. Knowingly is the operative word when engaging in seditious activity.

          OK. So Pelosi is in fact not doing “nothing”. The something she is doing is such that we view as requiring approval that was specifically not authorized. It’s illogical to argue that failure of a vote to approve allows going ahead with action that requires approval. The only valid assertion is that the action does not actually require approval. However that assertion is yet to be tested, for example, by arguments to the SCOTUS.

But it has since gone a bit off the rails legally. It cannot now with a straight face maintain that hundreds of years of SCOTUS jurisprudence is just wrong. Which you just did.

          BTW, IIRC in our last encounter about USMCA, you brought in cites from Blacks Law Dictionary from 1821 (although UK common law is irrelevant to US after we won the Revolutionary War —I bought a very expensive copy, read it while in law school as an extra curricular deep background common law activity, and have it still in storage) and confused the international law definition of a treaty with the US conlaw definition of a treaty. NOT the same, and in the US the US definition rules. I did not bother to respond.

    Meanwhile, the big political news will very shortly (this coming week) turn to Spygate prosecutions. Durham having two Mifsud cell phones per last weeks Sidney Powell to Jusge Sullivan filing is a BIG deal. And, both SIMs were UK based. (Side note—Sidney’s detailed filing means Barr and/or Durham are helping her behind the scenes, meaning they now know Flynn was set up by IC just like Papadop and Page.) That leads directly to MI6 and so to Brennan and Clapper, and so to an illegitimate EC predicate as questioned by Barr in Congress and now specifically investigated by Durham.

  35. Take the fake news media down and we take our country back!!!

    There must be some way legally to deal with these corrupt crooked devils!

    Any media asshats reading here should know, there are very few people who believe anything you say , print, or show in pictures or video! We have seen the propaganda for ourselves now… you have ZERO credibility with most of the public now. Maybe you can still sway a few brain dead mouth breathers, but even they have their doubts.

      Blind: Fake news can not remain undetected forever! Sooner or later someone notices!

      The USSR had fake news for over 70 years! It did not take Russians 70 years to figure this out!

      Example: I was working in Siberia when that Korean 747 airliner was shot down! A US co-worker heard the news via his shortwave radio. We then asked our Russian interpreters if they had heard anything about it? No, they had not! I don’t think they were overly shocked to tell you the truth. They simply wanted to know more of the details.

        The great Ronald Reagan used to say that from his experiences he found that the Russian people knew dang well that their press, like Pravda & Novosti, was always propaganda all the time.

        He had a story about the Russian and the foreign exchange student from Wisconsin discussing politics at a restaurant in Moscow one cold wintry day.

        The student said, “We are a free people. In America we can to go the White House and pound on a table and say that we don’t like the way the president is running the country.”

        The Russian replied, “We are also free. We can go to the Kremlin and pound on a table and say that we don’t like the way the American president is running his country.”

      Don’t know, but it would be nice if a class-action lawsuit could be done against against the fake MSM. I’m certainly being harmed by them; I’m sure there are plenty of other folks out there middle America who could say the same and back it up!

    To all the legal minds out there? Do all the demand letters that have been issued so far instantly become actionable subpoenas the instant the Full House authorizes impeachment? Which would obviously mean that the Democrats would demand instant compliance with all 157,000 of them or be accused of obstruction?

    Rape, Pillage, Plunder; America You’ve Been Had and It’s Your Own Damn Fault!
    America, you had best wake up! Nancy and the rest of the swamp, globalists, progressives, establishment, oligarchy, left, etc……. are pulling out every weapon at their disposal to destroy the ‘Outsider’ and negate any/all the power left in the hands of his supporters. Unlike past political struggles, if the left and their supporters should win there is no need to return to their old deceptive ways in that all the corruption is now out in the open for all to see. The Biden’s corrupt activities are just a tiny glimpse into the big picture. In short America, if the left succeeds in negating Donald Trump the picture of America’s (and the world’s) future is clear. Feudal lords with their legions of politicians and bureaucrats will rule over a world of mere serfs!

    Have a nice day America, while you still can!

    PS Are any of you not aware of the real reason Nancy and many others in the swamp/media/establishment/etc.. are throwing anything/everything against the wall in an effort to negate Donald Trump? The answer is so simple that a rookie detective right out of his/her basic investigative management course could have the whole case file ready for a prosecutor within a week. Or even more simply stated, Nancy and Adam are doing their dead level best to cover their own behinds and those of hundreds more in the swamp and elsewhere!

    “It is likely, highly likely, Nancy Pelosi does not have the votes to proceed with a full House impeachment authorization; so Pelosi, Schiff, Engel and _Cummings_ have to rely on the duplicity of the media to help them hide their scheme.”

    So, I’m essence, this is just the Pelosi version of the Nigerian prince email scam, only worse. The scammers just want money: these morons know that their use of Ukraine as a giant money laundering nexus is close to being exposed, so they are putting the President – and the country – through all of this just in the hope of ginning up a bit of false equivalence.

    Two can play Nancy’s game and frankly, from what I can see, Trump is far better at it than she is. She is looking more and more like a demented fool with each passing day. The more she thrashes about, goes to the mic, takes her little seditious trips here and there, the more we all stare in wonder that anyone of her “caliber” could possibly be 3rd in Command (which she takes literally). Her strategy is to drag out the bogus impeachment inquiry hoping beyond all hope it will effect 2020. It won’t. Trump’s strategy is to troll the hell out of these corrupt people while the DOJ is doing it’s job behind the scenes. I saw a statistic and I wish I could find it, that CNN’s viewership is below, like, the Discovery Channel. Most folks don’t get their news from the mainstream any more. They have lost their power. Everywhere I go, even in some out of the way thrift shop, people are talking about how great Trump is and how corrupt our politicians are. Everyone knows it’s a coup. Everyone is waiting for Justice to be done. Everyone is trusting that Trump has this. I’m still of the mind that should Justice NOT be done, there will be hell to pay, at the ballot box first, and by a thousand cuts afterwards. LOL. We can play the game too. We are way smarter than they are, evidenced by our ability to not be corrupt or compromised, right? My two cents.

    Rush thinks this is the Democrats’ election platform; not impeachment, but talk of impeachment, all through 2020.

    This may well please the big Democrat donors – the Hollywood dips have been driven mad by Trump- but Nancy doesn’t recognize the Republican voters will turn out in droves to protect their President. The few Republicans Pelosi deigns to speak to are GOPe and she’s, luckily for us, getting a very false picture.

    “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.”

    Fortunately, Pelosi, Schiftface and nadslessr have been digging themselves very deep, as they’ve lied to Americans, fed falsehoods to the compliant press as they treasonously attacking the Constitution.

    Most Americans have not disgraced themselves and participate with Pelosi on her diabolical schemes. It’s why Pelosi can not move a real impeachment forward.

    Nor will America sit patiently while Pelosi and her parasites try to blame SCOTUS for adhering to the Constitution, Precedents and due process.

    Especially, since President Trump has America responding like a healthy racehorse in a winner take all race. The muscles are working together and we are traveling faster as we approach the midrace.

    2020 KAG elections are going to traumatize a lot of blithering idiots pretending to be democrats this term.
    With luck and more of pelosi’s pompous tantrums, the democrat party will be fully defunct by December 2020. No sane sensible person will admit to being a leftist elite democrat.
