Jim Jordan Joins House Intelligence Committee – Interim Replacement for Rep. Rick Crawford…

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has announced the move of Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH) to the HPSCI for impeachment proceedings.  Jordan will replace Rick Crawford for open committee hearings during the House Intelligence push toward impeachment.

Jim Jordan is an articulate and eloquent politician who is very quick thinking on his feet during hearings.  The democrats constructing the fraudulent impeachment proceedings do not like Jordan; and this move comes as political network operatives used Fusion-GPS to dispatch a media hit against Jordan in an attempt to block his security clearance.

      Somebody needs to find out the following from Schiff:

      I believe that even the Dems would agree that their predicate for THIS impeachment “inquiry”, is that Trump demanded a quid pro quo from Zelensky in regards to the Biden scandal. Also, that Trump’s intention was to interfere with the 2020 elections, by getting “dirt” on an opposing candidate.

      Let’s look at that in depth:

      #1. What evidence do they have that Biden will be an opposing candidate to Trump? Until the Dem primaries select a candidate, how do we know that Biden will ever be an opposing candidate. Also, given that Trump is the chief executive of the Executive Branch, why shouldn’t the investigation of crimes committed by Americans in foreign countries be the business of the president? If Biden went to Ukraine and assassinated the Ukrainian Prosecutor that was going after Hunter Biden, should Biden have immunity from being investigated/prosecuted just because he’s running to become the Dem presidential candidate?

      #2. Now to address quid pro quo, or what has recently been renamed as bribery/extortion. Zelensky has said he had not felt pressured to investigate anything. Is there any evidence or testimony that Trump spoke to Zelensky directly and asked for a favor in order to receive the aid package? Other than staff saying they assumed that’s what Trump wanted or that they HEARD that’s what Trump wanted, where’s evidence of Trump actually saying that.

      #3. Not to mention, Trump was not the person that brought this Biden/Burisma scandal to the attention of the propaganda media. Trump mentioned it to Zelensky in a phone call, but never publicized it. How exactly would Trump gain politically by keeping quiet about it? Who was it that actually interfered with the election and made the entire media aware of Biden’s extortion for the benefit of his son, Hunter? The ironic thing is that Biden, Schiff and the fake “whistleblower” are guilty of leaking all of this to the media. Most Americans were not aware of Bidens indiscretions until the Dems came out to the media with the “whistleblower” hoax. So Trump actually did nothing to use the Biden scandal politically.

      #4 If the investigation of Hunter Biden by Ukraine was the quid, and Biden is innocent, how exactly would the investigation of Biden become political “dirt”? If Biden is innocent, how could this investigation be considered Trump getting “dirt” on Biden. If they all know for a fact that Biden did nothing wrong, then Trump can’t use this against Biden in a presidential campaign/election. So by the Dems and the propaganda media calling this election interference, they are really saying that they think or know that Biden is guilty.

        That’s outstanding. With regard to #1, I would add, when did Joe Biden officially file his papers with the FEC to be a Presidential candidate? If it was after the phone call (and I don’t know whether it was or not), then Biden was a private citizen and not even a candidate for the party nomination at that point.

          I believe that if a government official goes to Ukraine and commits a crime, it is breaking laws in America. Regardless, Joe extorted Ukraine into firing their State Prosecutor in order to help his son, Hunter. I believe there are corruption laws that cover nepotism. Extorting favors from Ukraine in exchange for not withholding an aid package is not legal in America. Unlike the Trump case, Biden admitted doing this in a public speech.

          Interesting that she cares about what is “customary” this time since NOTHING about this impeachment effort follows any previous customs established by previous impeachment efforts.

          She knows they can and will essentially shut Jordan down when the time comes. It’s why they keep changing the rules to suit themselves and only themselves.
          I don’t think she wanted the immediate bad optics of denying Jordan to be on that committee. Especially since they have “other ways” of dealing with him later.

          All communists past and present would be proud of her….

    McCarthy is a scumbag in the Ryan/Cantor/Boehner mold, but he knows the backlash that’ll come upon him and his incumbents if he doesn’t at least put up a pretense of defending Trump.

    Schiff and Pelosi got a tiger by the tail now. They need to finish this before Christmas, because on January 1st of every election year, the world flips. It’s a change in tone and attitude, in Washington and in the general public. Everything from that moment forward matters to incumbents, because the data on their performance is now being watched and remembered. One major slip during a primary season and it could be curtains.

    These morons should have started impeachment a few months earlier, but now they’re trapped by a timeline. I’d almost like to see this extended a couple months into 2020, just to help target a few outliers, and get us outright laughing at the zealots still hanging on. It’d ensure that those who vote “yes” will be stuck into voters’ memories.

If participation must occur, then Jordan will be a good asset to ask cogent questions that Schiff will refuse the witness to answer. This may help in the inevitable injunctive action that will eventually be filed. In other words, his only contribution, likely, will be to help build an appellate record.

Call witnesses Schiff denies. Ask hard questions Schiff won’t allow answered. Force Schiff to stupidly stymie Jordan at every turnMon camera.

    Going to public hearings now, when Schiff hasn’t got anything beyond the transcript except feelings and opinions means Pelosi was really feeling the heat on unfairness and had to make this move prematurely. Jordan’s job is to amplify that unfairness and lack of substance in the open.

    Don’t pay attention to polls in the last election I know several people that were polled that voted or planned on voting for Trump and lied. They did it to throw off the pollsters, just plain felt like it, and/or didn’t feel it was their business. Many registered democrats say they would never vote democrat again Rep.
