Impeachment by Public Opinion – Oh Noes: Adam Schiff’s Terribly, Horribly, Painfully Transparent Back-Tracking…

If you have liberal family members around for this weeks Thanksgiving feast and celebration it would be wise to understand the scale of their disappointment, even if they have yet to recognize it.  Perhaps the best course will be just smiling.

…”I want to discuss this with my constituents and colleagues before I make a final judgment on this,” Schiff said.

Amid diminishing public support for the impeachment fiasco; and with more Americans starting to realize the past two months were an abject lesson in political narrative building and legislative manipulation; HPSCI impeachment committee chairman Adam Schiff transmits a letter today to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler.

If Schiff were in the MMA venue this letter, describing the HPSCI report to the House Judiciary Committee (HJC), would be a double tap to the mat:

Well, there’s a slightly less than strong impeachment position: Impeachment by “inference”.. he says.  Previously Mueller and Weissmann attempted to prosecute President Trump, the fictitious horse-thief, for attempting to obstruct his hanging; now Schiff is inferring guilt because President Trump didn’t present alibis for his whereabouts when the fictitious horse wasn’t stolen…. Yup, it’s looking like a fail.

Schiff continues:

Wait,… President Trump has done terrible, horrible, dastardly stuff that the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, says makes President Donald J Trump an “imposter” in the office.  But now the assembly of the three committees need to figure out whether such imposter behavior is “compatible with the office of the presidency”?

See the obfuscation?

Pelosi, Schiff, Nadler and Lawfare are in “political extraction mode”.  That is, trying to walk backwards to the impeachment exit and only stepping into their prior footprints so that the left-wing nuts cannot identify their retreat.

You can read the Schiff letter to Nadler HERE.

Oh man, the Democrat base is going to go bananas if the House doesn’t have an impeachment vote…. and yet Pelosi could lose her gavel if the House has an impeachment vote that results in two foolish House Managers showing up to the Senate chamber with legally limp articles of impeachment.

    Schiff keeps saying “lawful subpoenas” were issued by the HPSCI, but weren’t they actually “conveyed subpoenas”? I just wanna make sure I got this right.

  2. We are forced to infer from Adam Schiff’s obstruction that the testimony of Eric Ciarmarella would tend to incriminate Schiff further since he would have encouraged –rather than blocked–the testimony of Ciaramella, if he believed somehow it would be helpful to him.

    It appears that the only Democrats to come out of this smiling are the Lawfare boys and their bank accounts, Mueller and Ukaine failure notwithstanding. Schiff may be protected from a primary in his district (D+23) by the fact that there are very few blacks (2%). His biggest fear, other than a tranny, would be a latino (25%) America hating whackjob stepping up to the plate. As for the smirky Rachel Maddow, how many times can her emotional and intellectually feeble audience be led astray before they shoot the messenger?

    “abject lesson in political narrative building and legislative manipulation”

    Boy, ain’t that the truth. The R’s had to hold onto their hats as they went over the rapids on that one.

    But it still continues.

    Nadler is scheduling hearings to start on 12/4…so it looks like I’m right and they’re pressing forward despite the polls. As of today anyway. Two possibilities:

    1. Democrats hold truncated hearings and accept HPSCI reporting as definitive. They decide the evidence is overwhelming (that was ALWAYS the plan, the hearings were for show), time is of the essence because the election is next year and they must act to prevent Trump from getting “foreign interference” in the elections. Their decision does not have to be based in logic or the law…merely the VOTES they think they have. They cannot back down. They are committed at this point, and if they lose the House next year, so be it. Pelosi has made multiple very public declarations of absolute guilty…no hedging and no way out of that. Ditto the rest of the lunatics in her caucus. There’s no way they can call Trump a direct threat to the Republic and then say, “Oh, well, mulligan!”

    2. Democrats hold hearings in the HJC and decide to push this out well into 2020. That gives them time to try and win some court decisions, and try to “slow bleed” Trump during the election year. There will be “bombshells” all year long that are not bombshells…just more hysteria from the fake news media. But that doesn’t matter. All that matters is that voters are distracted from the awful Presidential candidates, and that the Democrat base shows up to vote in November. The downside risk to this is the (admittedly small) probability that Durham produces indictments that are meaty and that target the core team of Coup Part One conspirators. I think Democrats know that what the FBI/DOJ did will be papered over and they’re willing to lose a few pawns. So the odds of Coup Part One revealing that many of the same people are involved in Coup Part Two are pretty small.

    I’m still of a mind that 1. carries the day and that the Horowitz IG Report is a dud. I don’t see how Pelosi stares down the crazies in her caucus. They have lost their minds.

      Option 2 has the benefit of keeping a Permanent Impeachment Investigation open from now through 2024 which they will just use to delay, disrupt, degrade, destroy anything Trump tries to do. They can rely on the courts to keep their hopes alive. There will be a lot of pressure on SCOTUS to slap all of this down. The Constitution does not authorize Congress to hold open-ended “investigations” that have nothing to do with pending legislation and which single out individual citizens for persecution. Democrats will bring this mess to a speedy conclusion if SCOTUS starts slapping them down on appeal.

      But again, I think the Democrats have become so utterly unhinged that they’re going to press forward to impeachment. The polls aren’t going to swing enough to dissuade them. Now, if they start getting polling in BLUE districts that show BLUE Democrats in danger? Then they’ll go Option 2. But I haven’t seen anything yet that says they’re worried about non-Trump districts.

        Pelosi was willing to utterly destroy her caucus in 2010 to get Obamacare passed. This is, from a partisan perspective, a much more white-hot issue for her base than Obamacare was. Anybody who thinks she won’t just throw them under the bus, but back the bus up to make sure she didn’t miss any, just to get Trump “impeached” doesn’t know grasp how ruthless Pelosi is.

    Separated into sentences, statements and claims. Bolding added to highlight words, claims.

    “We will catalog the instances of non-compliance with lawful subpoenas1 as part of our report to the Judiciary Committee, which will allow that Committee to consider whether an article of impeachment based on obstruction of Congress is warranted along with an article or articles based on this underlying conduct or other presidential misconduct2.”

    1) They are not legal subpoenas.
    2) N.B. They’ve reduced “Crimes and Misdemeanors” to presidential misconduct”.

    “Such obstruction was the basis of the third article of impeachment against President Richard Nixon.”

    “Further, we will be forced to infer from this obstruction3 that the testimony of these witnesses would tend to incriminate the President further4 since he would have encouraged—rather than blocked—the testimony of senior officials like Acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and former National Security Advisor Ambassador John Bolton, if he believed it would somehow be helpful to him.”
    3) Schiffy infers obstruction without an underlying crime without any act of obstruction.
    4) Schiffy claims that the “obstruction” is when President Trump refuses to acquiesce to a fraudulent unconstitutional pretense impeachment. i.e. No official Impeachment = No wasting my Administration’s time.

    “The fact that the President has uniformly instructed all executive branch agencies and senior officials to obstruct the investigation further demonstrates consciousness of guilt on the part of the President5.”

    5) This is where Schiffy relies heavily upon “inference”F1.

    “Even as we draft our report, we are open to the possibility that further evidence will come to light6, whether in the form of witnesses who provide testimony or documents that become available.”

    6) Schiffy and the other democrat hoodlums desperately hope that somebody will bring them real evidence, or at least better evidence than they have.

    FI: Legal definition of “Inference”:

    “A conclusion arrived at by logically drawing on known facts — as in, if A and B are true, then C is.”

    N.B. Schiffy’s whole charade was to set up a false algebra political equation; if A & B are correct, then C must be correct.
    Where:
    A) is Schiffy, Nadler’s and Pelosi’s allegations
    B) is their seditious list of witnesses.
    C) is supposed to be that President Trump is a criminal.
    Only democrat allegations failed to identify any crime committed by President Trump. While their witnesses incriminated themselves and the organizations of FBI, State Department and Marines.

    …Marines are implicated because their senior officers have failed to address willful insubordination, mutiny, conduct unbecoming an officer, perjury, preferential aid to a foreign country over the USA.
