Desperation or Strategy? – Pelosi and Schiff Hiring More Lawfare Members for Impeachment Effort…

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 House committee staff.

In 2018 Chairman Adam Schiff hired former SDNY U.S. Attorney Daniel Goldman (link).  You probably saw Goldman doing the questioning for Schiff during the first public impeachment hearing (above).  Meanwhile Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler hired Obama Administration lawyer Norm Eisen and criminal defense attorney Barry Berke (link).

However, with a horrible start to the impeachment construct; an outcome of day-one hearings where State Department officials George Kent and Bill Taylor provided no baseline for the impeachment narrative to build upon; Pelosi and Schiff are going outside for more legal assistance.  Per Chad Pergram:


[Barry Berke, left and Norm Eisen, right – pictured exiting the HSCI scif with Jerry Nadler on the same day Pelosi’s “Impeachment Inquiry” Resolution was released, 10/29/19]

After Goldman, Eisen and Berke were brought on board Speaker Nancy Pelosi then hired Douglas Letter as House General Counsel – all are within the Lawfare network.

This move -to allow House Counsel to bring on additional legal assistance for the impeachment effort- means Doug Letter will be able to hire more lawyers.

Many people surmised that Pelosi and Schiff moved to utilize the Ukraine/NSC impeachment angle *after* the Mueller angle for impeachment ran into trouble. However, CTH research doesn’t reflect the Whistle-blower impeachment plan as an ‘add-on’.

Instead, what we see is the use of the HPSCI; and the use of embeds within National Security Council staff; by design.  The Schiff events of today were always part of a prior planned design.

Only two committees hired Lawfare staff in 2018: Judiciary (Eisen & Berke) and HPSCI (Goldman).  This evidences a 2018 plan to use the Judiciary and HPSCI for the impeachment process as designed by the Lawfare contractors.  This design is also outlined in the year of public advice from the mother-ship, Lawfare.

The impeachment crew always planned to use the House Intelligence Committee; and they always planned to use activated sleeper cells within the National Security Staff.  None of this is organic; none of this current action was contingent upon a Trump phone call.

The whistle-blower approach was always going to be used; the only issue was: ‘how’?

What Pelosi/Schiff et al have assembled is a format for a highly controlled public spectacle prior to a predetermined transfer of evidence to Jerry Nadler (Judicary). With the intent to construct a pantomime for public absorption in mind, the impeachment rules were written for maximum narrative construction. [ex. Lawfare lawyers questioning witnesses]

  1. As a man thinkth says:

    The key to all the dem’s scams, is to have the American tax payer foot the bill for the legal fees associated with their attempted coup… Obviously, they have all the congressional time and federal dollars to finance Muiller and his Lawfare Group. The same Lawfare Group, paid by federal dollars ran Gen. Flynn broke and now Shifty and his portion of the Lawfare Group continue the scam in the House…

    “Desperation or Strategy?”

    They always had the new Lawfare attorneys waiting in the wings.
    Pelosi just didn’t figure she’d need those attorneys this soon.

    If in fact the newly hired “pro bono” lawyers are actually being paid indirectly (i.e. PRC $ -> forget the name of the organization -> Lawfare) by a foreign entity such as China, are any laws being broken?

  5. Yes! Yes, she is doing just that. Thank you for that “little” (yuge!) blurb ristvan.

    And the last sentence. It might be good to see that on these threads every single day.

    The need for instant gratification is cheap and tawdry and generally such things are dissatisfying. I’m in for the LONG HAUL with a full net.

    It doesn’t matter. The Democrats lost this before it even started. The only people that are happy with it are at the most 30% of the crazy left. And people generally dislike attorneys (excluding our ristvan and other rare exceptions). Attorneys are not going to win the day on the televisions of Americans across the fruited plain.

    What the hell! Who’s paying for this sh*t????
    These people are supposed to be our elected officials NOT THE LAWYERS!
    How much is this costing? And it looks like it’s going into the same pockets as the RUSSIA RUSSIA RUSSIA witch hunt!


  9. SWOhio says:

    More lawyers??? Any Dems or independents reading this, realize that this is simply flushing more and more of our taxpayer $$ down the rabbit hole.

    Sure they hate President Trump, but if this was on THEIR dollar you can bet all these Dem allies would not have been hired.

    Instead of doing the work they were elected to do, they throw millions of $$ against the wall hoping something will stick.

    And President Trump rakes in more and larger donations every time one of the Dem clowns or their clown ‘witnesses’ opens his mouth.
