      Taylor and Yavonovich have already disputed Schiff’s allegations. Boh of their pior testimonies related to differences of opinion over policy. I think Pelosi is trying to wrap this up and save face.

      I don’t see any way they will move forward with impeachment, especially if it were to give Trump the opportunity for a show trial on live tv where his lawyers could bring down everyone, starting with star witness Adam Schiff and working their way up to Obama himself.

          Not going to work. No one who has supported VSGPDJT for the past 3 years is going to stop supporting him now. This garage is only making his support stronger. Anyone stating online whether it be twitter, here at CTH, or anywhere on social media, that they no longer support PDJT is a liar and has never been a supporter.

            My wife, who isn’t really very political and seldom talks about it, told me today that PDJT must be a very strong person to put up with the abuse thrown his way since his election. How true, and I have many other friends and acquaintances who have said they will crawl through broken glass to get to the voting booth to cast their vote for PDJT even though many of them haven’t voted in years. Their stance was why vote since whoever took office never did what they said they would do, until DJT.

          None of these witnesses offering an opinion publicly came forward with similar concerns under the prior administration.

    Three thoughts.
    1. For Schiff to start public hearings next week when the Taylor and Yovanovitch ’depositions‘ plainly show NOTHING means Pelosi is under enormous political pressure over the appearance of her ‘secret Star Chamber’ process.

    2. Sondland later changing his testimony to ‘remember’ he brought up the aid holdup with some Ukrainian official is disingenuous for several reasons: Zelenskyy did not raise it as a concern, it comes AFTER the press reported Ukraine did not know until late August, AND the aid was ultimately timely given with no evidence that ’Zelenskyy had done PDJT’s bidding’.

    3. Last evening’s OLC letter opinion to Cippolone about subpoenas to administration officials invalid since no DoJ lawyer is allowed to accompany them legally under Pelosi’s voted process fully undercuts any effort by Schiff to turn those non-appearances into ‘obstruction’.

    This really is not going well for Schiff and Pelosi. They went all in on the supposed whistleblower info and that construct has now bigly failed several ways:
    —was hearsay enabled only by ex post facto ICIG rule change, and proven FALSE hearsay by the transcript release.
    —was pre-coordinated with Schiffs staff, and then whistleblower perjured himself by denying it on the ICIG form he signed. so Ratcliffe will call Schiff as first material witness.
    —leak to whistleblower (probably by Vindman) violated 18USC§798, which Vindman as much as admitted in his own testimony, and why Schiff cut Ratcliffe questions off at ‘who did you leak to?’

    Pelosi has three choices, none good: be seriously embarrassed by stopping the Schiffshow; risk losing an Articles of impeachment vote on nonsense; broaden the impeachment inquiry beyond Ukraine. Bet the third choice is her easiest out. But there are no good other Inquiry topics; Nadler was already whiffing. Wall funding used existing legislated powers. Travel ban eventually upheld by SCOTUS. Paris Accord pullout is per Paris Accord. Emoluments thwarted by contribution all profits from foreign use of Trump properties to Treasury, and Scotland military layovers negotiated at below market rates before PDJT was elected.

    Orange Man Bad ‘maladministration’ is not a ‘high crime and misdemeanor’ except in Al Green and Maxine Waters TDS minds. Enjoy the spectacle. Won’t end well for Dems.

      ristvan, Nice analysis. I’m on board.

      Two musings;

      One – I agree this appears to be falling down around their ears. Will the Democratic leadership kick Lawfare to the curb for their crappy construct and advice?

      Two – Will Sondland ever get invited to another Christmas party? I guess since he and Comey ticked off both sides, they can get together, drink Eggnog and play Chutes & Ladders.

      Ok, ok, the first one was a real question. The second was meant to lighten up a bit.

      Mr. Ristvan, your analysis is well thought out and well argued. But unfortunately, none of it matters.

      The rank and file of the Democratic Party faithful want to see Donald Trump impeached. They don’t care if a pack of manufactured lies is used as evidence for impeachment. They don’t care if the process used to impeach the president is legally flawed and probably unconstitutional. They don’t even care if a follow-on Senate trial acquits him.

      Most all of the Democratic Party faithful hate President Trump with as much TDS fervor and passion as Al Green and Maxine Waters hate him. But more importantly, the faithful expect that impeachment and a subsequent pro-forma trial in the Senate where he is quickly acquitted will fully energize and fully mobilize the party base for November, 2020.

      Nancy Pelosi knows full well that the great majority of Democrats want to see the president impeached, regardless of the political risks; and that if she doesn’t impeach the president in late 2019 or early 2020, she will eventually be replaced as Speaker of the House.

      It’s a terrific gamble, sure, but she’s gonna go through with it. She wouldn’t be Nancy Pelosi if she didn’t.

        False claim and false premise.
        Delusional activists on the democrat side are as you describe.

        The legions of democrat voters working or living normal occupations are not.

        I was a democrat until Obama came along. When candidate Trump showed up, I became Republican. Hell, I’d stopped voting for most democrats during Obama’s first term.

        Democrats have already lost a significant percentage of voters from their two year false persecution of President Trump. e.g. the Florida rally poll where 20% of the attendees were democrats.

        Another year of wasted government looms heavy on the remaining democrats. Yes, the activists and plain delusional are emotionally caught up in TDS, and will not stop frothing at the mouth.
        Normal democrats are embarrassed. Normal democrats are already strapped for discussion in any collection of people. When they spout the media falsehoods, everyone in the group no longer acquiesces.
        Many offer sustained and strong arguments for President Trump, leaving those bleating the media’s weakest claims that are in opposition to the Constitution, Bill of Rights and Amendments.

        On every front; trade, economy, jobs, cost of living, international relations, deregulations, improving or eliminating red tape, improved and low cost fuel supplies, industry return to America, etc. etc. etc.

        People, including democrats, have gone from lamenting loss or change of occupations to happily talking about their latest job change, status and salary increases. Only activists and idiots pretend that the jobs situation was Obama’s or accidental. And those arguments in groups have quite a few people rolling their eyes and trying to change the topic.

        Then democrats bring up a amazing field of democrat candidates for 2020:
        • Senile, compulsive braggart and liar, openly corrupt show boating Biden,
        • Openly socialist, “do as I say, not as I do”, delusional Sanders,
        • Exposed severely corrupt, compulsive liar, ultimate elitist Hillary,
        • Sex for promotions, delusional, desperate for attention Kamala,
        • Proven compulsive liar, socialist for people – elites become royalty, openly and viciously vindictive Warren,
        • beto,
        • buttegg,
        etc. etc.
        All of which have proclaimed undying support for destroying America’s economy, Killing live born children, burdening hard working Americans with all costs for illegal immigrants, banning cars, planes and trains, causing electricity and fuel prices to spike and turning America into another socialist hell hole.

        Day of election 2020; democrats are going to walk into voting booths and have to face the list of democrat losers against an extremely successful President Trump who has brought prosperity back to America after decades of decline.

        Our founders purposely designed government to be inefficient. Efficient governments quickly become tyrannies.
        However Pelosi’s slight majority of House democrats, coupled with democrat Senators conducting a scorched Earth government has caused our government to fail to accomplish anything substantially constructive. And nothing productive has originated in either the House or Senate.
        Severe levels of corruption have been exposed in the Agencies, House and Senate; especially amongst the democrats. Images of democrat leaders playing Puerto Rico beaches while important legislation languished is burned into many minds.

        Americans, including democrats, are expecting government to purge the evils and punish those involved over the next five years.

        I look forward towards the crushing 2020 election democrat defeat, democrats are working hard to ensure.

          I am personally acquainted with a fairly large number of people across the nation from all walks of life who generally vote for Democrats and who voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016.

          IMHO, these people are representative of the true blue party faithful of which many millions live and work in the United States.

          With very few exceptions — there are a few, but not many — these people all suffer from TDS to one degree or another. The substance of today’s economic and social issues means little or nothing to them.

          Most all of these Democratic Party faithful recognize that President Trump cannot be removed from office before the 2020 election.

          They see impeachment as a means of generating the enthusiasm needed in the solid Democrat voter base for bringing the faithful out in large numbers in 2020, as was done for Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012.

          If you can combine an exceptionally large turnout of the true blue Democratic Party faithful with perpetration of widespread vote fraud in the swing states, then you have a formula for defeating Donald Trump in 2020.

      I am reminded of an early senior management lesson in the Munich office of BCG back in 1980 when I was a very young pup new fast tracked partner. We fired a long in tooth mid level ‘manager’ for a myriad of subtle reasons, but no smoking gun. In Germany, that was and remains a big deal.

      So Dietrich wanted to confront us, and did. Why??? And senior partner Bob (someone I learned much from) replied, ‘Dietrich, because we don’t like you!’. Lesson learned.
      A German GmBH cannot be challenged on partner/officer decisions. So STFU.

        I agree the absence of wrongdoing is irrelevant. The point of my comment is that Taylor testified that he had access to Yovanovitch’s testimony before he testifed and before it was publically released. It appears that Shiff is allowing his witnesses to coordinate their testimony.

So that a ready for primetime orchestration can be delivered.”

    For the life of me, I don’t know why the Executive doesn’t publically invite the group GOP House and Senate memembers that are well reversed on the ‘witch hunt coup’ to come in and have a secret round table deconstruction of the Schiff’s quid pro quo narrative and present the Administration’s defense.

    Surely, the President can declassify to this group what AG Barr is holding back from declassify.

    Call it a Mock Senate Impeachment Trial code named ‘Zippo Redux’.
