        Clue,
        Let. them try; they are about to fall into the briar patch.

        AG Barr, Durham, Huber, and Horowitz likely possess hard core and irrefutable evidence that will prove hundreds of felonies committed by dozens of coup plotters.

        There are multiple whispers of cooperation.
        Let’s say your 40, have multiple children at home, and maybe a law license you would like to keep. Hillary ain’t ever going to be president and it looks likely DJT will be reelected. Do you want to keep your mouth shut while others are giving up facts, or do you want to mitigate your vulnerable position?

        We are going to find out shortly that John Durham has multiple fact witnesses helping his team, and that they have given up hard evidence of crimes. The only real issue is how far up the food chain will Durham go? How many indictments and which statutes were violated?

        Logic dictates we wait and see what the prosecutors do. If they F it up, we Patriots can fix injustice down the road.

        Your choice, AG Barr.

    Question to SD or anyone else:

    The GOP invoked an obscure rule that was supposed to allow them to call witnesses before the House Intel Committee.

    So what is the status of that? Did the Dims deny it? Or are they just ignoring it! And in either case, is McCarthy making a stink about it?

    As well…do not the GZoP have a right to add their addendum to Scfiff’s Report? Again, if so — are they making a stink about it?

Given the current events I’d say Shiff simply ignored the request, just as I expected he would, after all the entire inquiry wasn’t designed to be fair or even handed, so the Dems are continuing to play it that way.

However, I don’t think that maneuver is going to work, the FISA malfeasance will be undeniable hyper-documented FACT, no way to get around it. The puny weak-tea impeachment drive will be blown away by a harsh reality implicating major Democrats.

    Here is a theory on Bidens candidacy.

    Biden and the Dems neck deep in Ukraine corruption.

    2016 Despite Trumps victory, Biden/Dems unconcerned with being exposed since Poreshenko still runs Ukriane

    2018 Zelensky is popular in opinion polls in Ukraine -although not a candidate – Poreshenko still in power (Biden/Dems not worried – but keeping an eye on how this will evolve)

    Dec. 2018 Zelensky announces candidacy Dec. 31 (Biden/Dems now begin to worry – if Poreshnko goes down he risks being exposed – and must now lay groundwork to avoid being investigated – time to ramp up interest in candidacy )

    April 21, 2019 Zelensky wins Ukraine Presidency – (Biden now needs to insulate himself from any and all investigations)

    April 25, 2019– Joe Biden announces candidacy for POTUS.

    If you overlay the timeline of the ascent of Velensky, and descent of Poroshenko, with the timeline of Bidens non- candidacy, well maybe candidacy – and then full blown candidacy, a pattern emerges.

    The Trump impeachment is based upon a “quid pro quo” of Trump withholding funds to Ukraine to force Zelensky to investigate Trumps political opponent – Biden. The lynchpin to this narrative is that Biden is a political opponent.

    So my question is, what if Biden were just a past VP – a private citizen no longer involved in poitics? Would Biden and the media still be able to paint this as a crime committed by Trump? My thought is no – at least not in the manner they are doing now.

    So my theory is that Joe Biden and family are just as dirty as evidence would indicate. Joe had no concern that any of this would see the light of day, as Poroshenko would hold off any investigation by new POTUS Trump.

    As Poroshenkos popularity diminished, Joe starts getting worried and has to think of a plan to shield himself from investigation.

    So the plan is hatched to run for POTUS.

    Except Joe is in no shape to actually run for Potus. While always a walking gaffe machine, Joe was at least quick on his feet. But not now – you can see that Bidens mental acuity is waning badly. But the only chance he has to keep the investigation at bay, is to run.

    I don’t think he wanted to run – I think he had to.

    Media and Dems are fully on board – and the “fact” that Trump apparently “bribed” the Ukriane into investigating Biden, is a very large part of the impeachment game being run by Dems. Without the Biden as a candidate angle they would need to find other grounds to impeach, and there aren’t any.

    If Poroshenko had won the Presidency, I don’t think Biden runs for POTUS.

    The entire impeachment Circus is an arm of the Biden strategy to avoid being investigated for his crimes.

      Both Ukraine and the USA share a ratified treaty pledging mutual cooperation in law enforcement, specifically with regards to corruption. Investigations against many present and former US politicians are known to be actively underway in both countries.

      Being (supposedly) a political candidate does not render you immune to criminal indictment and prosecution.

They firmly believe that they have the right to throw out the duly-elected POTUS in order to protect numerous felons … namely, themselves.

      And they’re somehow certain that the American Public will never catch on. (But then again, they never cared about the American Public anyhow.)

  17. This is a classic “Bill of Attainder” in every respect – as expressly prohibited in §1.9.3. The Democrats don’t care.

    First, after systematically denying the 5th and 6th Amendments, and after the President wisely declines to testify against himself, the House will declare, on its own supposed authority, that the President is guilty of some “high crime.” Then, it will maliciously punish him by impeachment. All without a trial or the due-process rights that we would perfunctorily grant to any common thief.

    A bill of attainder is an act of a legislature declaring a person or group of persons guilty of some crime and punishing them, often without a trial. As with attainder resulting from the normal judicial process, the effect of such a bill is to nullify the targeted person’s civil rights, most notably the right to own property, the right to a title of nobility, and, in at least the original usage, the right to life itself. Bills of attainder passed in Parliament by Henry VIII on 29 January 1542 resulted in the executions of a number of notable historical figures. – WikiPedia

    “No Bill of Attainder or ex post facto law shall be passed.” – US Constitution §1.9.3.

    “Who cares?” – Lawfare

    Well, it’s time to throw the Attainder monkey-wrench officially into their well-laid desperate plans. The House has no legitimate Constitutional authority to impeach, because there are no “high crimes and misdemeanors,” and the House has no judicial authority with which to find that any such crimes exist. This is by the careful intention of the authors of our Constitution.

    Don’t think formal impeachment happens this year if at all . Two separate reasons.

    1. The Dec 4 Nadler hearing is about defining ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’. But the meaning has been historically defined by the constitutional convention when they substituted it for the original ‘maladministration’, and further explained by Federalist Paper #65. That gives Nadler an impeachment off ramp to censure.

    2. Pelosi and a Congressional delegation of 25 left today for Madrid and COP25. She is doing this to spite PDJT, who is withdrawing from the Paris Accord and therefor sent a lower level diplomatic mission to Madrid. COP25 runs from Dec 2 to Dec 13. Pelosi cannot symbolically attend the closing ‘decision day’ and be back in the US before Dec 15. No floor impeachment vote will happen in her absence. So the impeachment show will conclude in 2020.

      ristvan: “Don’t think formal impeachment happens this year if at all. Two separate reasons.”

      IMHO, impeachment has been a certainty since the Democrats took control of the House in January 2019. Impeachment is all about using media optics to energize and motivate those many millions of true blue Democrats who want Donald Trump voted out of office to get out to the polls in November 2020.

      The basic text of the articles of impeachment have probably already been drafted and will just need some touching up here and there before being voted upon. When the House vote actually occurs depends on what Nancy Pelosi and her team of lawfare strategists believe to be the best timing for holding the impeachment vote.

      ristvan: “1. The Dec 4 Nadler hearing is about defining ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’. But the meaning has been historically defined by the constitutional convention when they substituted it for the original ‘maladministration’, and further explained by Federalist Paper #65. That gives Nadler an impeachment off ramp to censure.”

      Nancy Pelosi is the ringmaster for the House impeachment circus, not Adam Schiff or Jerry Nadler. Trump’s alleged high crimes and misdemeanors as described in the draft articles of impeachment will be whatever Nancy Pelosi and her lawfare legal team say are his high crimes and misdemeanors.

      ristvan: “2. Pelosi and a Congressional delegation of 25 left today for Madrid and COP25. She is doing this to spite PDJT, who is withdrawing from the Paris Accord and therefore sent a lower level diplomatic mission to Madrid. COP25 runs from Dec 2 to Dec 13. Pelosi cannot symbolically attend the closing ‘decision day’ and be back in the US before Dec 15. No floor impeachment vote will happen in her absence. So the impeachment show will conclude in 2020.”

      Sundance notes that Nancy Pelosi has added another week to the December House calendar. That’s time enough to push through a quick vote on articles of impeachment after her return from COP25.

      We should not be surprised if Pelosi uses that additional week to stage a pre-Christmas media circus extravaganza in which she hands millions of the true blue Democratic Party faithful their fondest dream for a Christmas present — articles of impeachment voted against Donald Trump.

  19. The reason the Dems launched the impeachment witchhunt, despite its obvious non-starter evidentiary staus, and downside reputational risk (now playing out) was because of a far greater risk- that DOJ would look further than FISAgate, and look into Bidens corruption.

    See Schumers warning to Trump and Bidens warning to Graham and the obvious indications of lots of fingers in cookie jars like the Ukraine, all the way to the top.

    Pelosi’s latest WrapUp Smear with parallel construction once again manufactured by the Deep State is a classic dezinformatzia technique: sow massive FUD while pointing fingers at ones enemy for what you are guilty. Classic Alinsky, Goebbels, US progressive marxist leninist PR with the full help of the MSM in some quarters, leaking as ordered, following prepared Narrative (LawFare).

      Not sure it will be an issue since, IMHO, McConnell will put a conservative replacement for RBG on the SCOTUS bench well before November 2020 regardless.

        I hope you are correct and I think the President has enough leverage on Turtle, due to all of the money he and the missus have received from her Chinese connections, to make sure that Mitch does his duty to “Advise and Consent” the President’s nominees…My main concern is that the MSM will scream all day, every day about how it is “wrong” that a President who has been impeached should be allowed to nominate a Supreme Court Justice before his trial has been held. And if they can get the nomination delayed until after the election, there are dozens of cases, both in this term, and the next term, that will be deadlocked 4-4 and the left will win through the courts again, which is the main way that they have won for the past 50 years!! They lose at the ballot box but then “win” anyway through the efforts of a biased press and an activist judiciary and an uniformed electorate

          The trouble with that approach is that, technically and legally, the President is innocent until proven guilty and so far the dems have come up with nothing that resembles proof, let alone a trial.

            Oh, you are absolutely correct but the Democrats and their willing allies in the media are so determined to push this farce through that silly little things like legalities mean nothing to them! Every single witness that the Republicans were allowed to question was asked the same thing. “What crime did the president commit?” Not a single one of them ever provided an answer…

    What all these swamp rats are in fear of is that the malfeasance, corruption and often just downright criminal behavior in every Department and Bureau of our federal government has gone on for decades. Both parties are complicit and NONE of the institutions that are held up with reverence are free of it. In fact it is especially those who are most exalted; Defense, Intel, the FBI, these are tarnished the worst. The FBI is not now nor has it ever been “the best of the best”. It is the American equivalent of the Soviet NKVD. Every little piece that comes unraveled leads to more, and more, and more. Washington has been ripe as a breeding ground for every form of graft for over a hundred years, but the Clintons elevated the game. They monetized their politics and weaponized law enforcement and intel to a degree that was unprecedented up to that point. In every one of the current scandal narratives you follow the thread back and find that it is at least tainted with, if not firmly attached to, the Clintons. Their people remained dormant during the Bush years and then their numbers were bolstered through eight years of Obama. There is at least a quarter centuries worth of poison in that well. He may never get all of them, but the President is doing one magnificent job of flushing them out

    House rules say the minority has a minimum of two days to provide a minority report.
    This isn’t in your timeline.

    Why is Adm Mike Rogers not included in any of this? Why has the Admiral not been deposed?
    Adm Rogers was there when this whole mess started. The AAdmiral, of all people, should have much information to offer.

    Is the schedule as shown in this story what is published by the House Majority? If so, the December 9 entry is interesting; “Hearing to Deny House Republican witnesses”. The Dems apparently already are set to deny the R’s any witnesses in their Act 2 of the show trial. What a joke!

    Any ideas why they’re rushing this through? It’s not like this is typical behavior to rush anything…short of rushing to judgment against our duly elected President Trump.

    Okay, this is just hilarious… in a Kafkaesque way:

    December 6th – Deadline for House Republican witness list.
    December 9th – Hearing to deny House Republican witnesses.
