Jim Jordan Discusses Possibility of Interim Move To Intelligence Committee…

Yesterday the possibility of adding Rep. Jim Jordan to the HPSCI was raised. Jordan has been an effective questioner and communicator for the republicans in the House, and moving him to HPSCI would allow him to participate in the public impeachment hearing controlled by Adam Schiff.

Jordan responded to that possibility earlier today on Fox News.

    I got to meet Jim Jordan in Pensacola at a DeSantis event. He is a great guy and the real deal. That’s why they pulled the typical smear on him with false allegations; he didn’t cave like the typical gutless R because he’s the real deal with NO skeletons in his closet. He would be a nightmare for Shifty.

      Your fingers to God’s ear, should only Jordan be a horrid nightmare for Shifty. It is fortunate that Shifty isn’t the isn’t the swiftest ship on the sea, quite likely Jordan and the other Republicans will find openings to promote the offense spoken about in the clip. No question the impeachment quest is weak tea and weakening it further is in the cards.

          Didn’t know that! And yes it is hard to believe. Then again we saw how the prosecutors in Mueller’s outfit behaved—AFAICT a lot like Schifty is behaving now. I have to think Schifty must have been a prosecutor cut in that mold. Maybe calling ’em “persecutors” would be a more accurate description.

Ohioans are fortunate that we can count on his straight-talk and rolled-up sleeves determination. Due to realignment, he is now contiguous to my district, but I will continue to donate and support his efforts and pray that he remains intentional with his determination to represent we the people. He is the real deal.

      Correct. She has no say on who the Republicans assign to committees. About all she can do (maybe) is change the total number of people on the committee. Usually, the junior members are dropped from committee if the number is decreased, so Jordan would have to replace a senior member (swamp rat?) if that were to happen.

      McConnell & Graham actually toyed with the idea of decreasing the membership on the Senate Judiciary – which would have removed Harris and Booker, I think; unless a senior senator stepped aside.

    DOES ERIC HAVE ALLOT MORE TO WORRY ABOUT THAN WHISTLE-BLOWING?

    It seems to me, that Eric Ciaramella’s is not only a member of the CIA but also worked for CIA counterintelligence during his time at the White House. As we all know, counter intelligence operations can only be authorized by the setting president. Does this make Eric Ciaramella a Obama plant?

    We also know, that any time a CIA agent operates within the continental US borders he or she must work with a FBI agent. Does this mean, that Eric worked with Peter Strzok?

      — we all know, counter intelligence operations can only be authorized by the setting president. —
      That’s not true. It’s a misread of what Andrew McCarthy meant.
      By legal fiction, all counterintelligence is outside of the 4th amendment, because it is *foreign* intelligence, part of the president’s personal portfolio. From a 4th amendment standpoint, this distinguishes FISA from the usual need for warrants – which is for law enforcement purposes, not for spy purposes.
      FISA ostensibly exists to create a warrant record that can be used in the event a spy case has some bearing on a criminal case.
      Another way to view this divide is that FISA is “the president’s” and ordinary criminal investigation is “The DOJ.”
      Fact of the matter is that most cases are outside of the president’s personal view, although by sheer volume (criminal activity is maybe 100-1,000 times more common) it is more likely a president will learn of a spy operation than learn of a criminal operation, it is not true that 100% of spy operatoins are known or ordered by the president.
      By it’s language, warrantless FISA can be authorized by the AG, unbeknowst to POTUS. In practice, the AG delegates most FISA to DAG, and even that is “DAG signature based on trust, not on personal knowledge.”
      All that said, Obama had to know about the snoop on Trump operation, in part becuase it has a mission to ruin Trump politically or more.

            The cable concludes that Nagell “appears psychotic, possibly dangerous” — an allegation that persists throughout the new document trail. Yet if Nagell was really so easily dismissed, why was another CIA cable out of Europe (June 7, 1968) dispatched to a number of CIA officials in Washington, including several connected to Counterintelligence (CI)?

            The CIA maintains what are designated “201 files” on “subjects of extensive reporting and CI investigation” and on “prospective agents and sources,” according to the Agency’s Clandestine Services Handbook.

            http://whowhatwhy.org/2018/01/10/get-cias-attention-threaten-jfk-assassination-reveal/

            Spy cases were not the only major counterintelligence events to take place duringthese 10 years. In December 1981, President Ronald Reagan signed Executive Order 12333, which defined counterintelligence as “information gathered and
            activities conducted to protect against espionage, other intelligence activities,
            sabotage, or assassinations conducted for or on behalf of foreign powers,organizations or persons, or international terrorist activities, but not including personnel, physical, document or communications security programs.” This
            definition is still used by the CI community to this day.

            This Executive Order also presented the mission requirements and authority for US Intelligence community agencies. It required that, before CIA could conduct any foreign intelligence collection or counterintelligence in the United States, the FBI had to coordinate. Likewise, before the FBI did any counterintelligence overseas, the CIA had to coordinate on the activity. The Department of Defense needed coordination from either the CIA or FBI depending on the location of its
            proposed counterintelligence activity

      Good question. Answer, not under present Senate impeachment trial rules laid down for Clinton. And I don’t think McTurtle could get cloture to change them.

      However, my cursory parliamentary study of the Senate rules DOES suggest that Lindsey Graham, head of the Senate Judiciary Committee, could refer the constitutional question of whether weak Ukraine nothing burger Articles of Impeachment (like quid pro quo ‘abuse of power’ or ‘ interference in 2020 election by investigating Joe Biden now’) comprised constitutional ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’ to SCOTUS by suing the House Judiciary Committee on the question, seeking a stay of House vote and a constitutional ruling before (or even after) a final floor vote is taken. Such a move to seek constitutional clarity would expose the illegitimate political nature of Pelosi’s inquiry.

      The enabler for that tactic is A3§2.1 first clause, and the precedent is directly Marbury v Madison, 5US147 (1803). The logic first CJ Marshal used to resolve what was essentially a political dispute between outgoing President John Adams and incoming President Thomas Jefferson, mediated via a Congressional transition ‘law’, would be directly applicable. All Treepers should read at least a cliff notes version of this most fundamental SCOTUS decision ever.

    First it seems, unlikely that the HPSCI will accept Jim Jordan’s request to join the “House Judiciary Committee” since it is only the HPSCI renamed. Perhaps the most disturbing, fact is that the intelligence committee are the same people under investigation by AG BARR.

    Second, It would seem that Adam shifts committee has the opportunity to gain some legitimacy by having Jim Jordan, as a member. So will Jim,be tainted by joining such a openly corrupt committee.

      Additionally, if Hurd isn’t running for another term, then he doesn’t bring much to the table, as far as having any vested interest in the outcome of the hearings. For that reason, alone, Hurd should be replaced. Replacing Hurd with Jordan almost makes too much sense as a strategy, for the Republicans to consider…
