Chairman Nadler Announces House Presenters for Monday Impeachment Inquisition…

Planning for impeachment right after the 2018 mid-term election, HPSCI 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.  Around the same time in 2018 Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler hired Obama Administration lawyer Norm Eisen and criminal defense attorney Barry Berke (link).

In addition to changing the House rules to align with the plan, the impeachment process we have been witnessing for two months was mapped-out in the congressional lame-duck session between November 2018 and January 2019.   Today Chairman Nadler announces who will present the impeachment file during the House hearing on Monday:

(Source Link – pdf)

According to the visible structure Lawfare Counsel Barry Berke (representing the majority) and Republican Counsel Stephen Castor (representing the minority) will make opening arguments to the House Judiciary Committee. 

Lawfare Counsel Daniel Goldman & Lawfare Counsel Barry Berke will then present the evidence for impeachment.  House judiciary member questioning will look like last week’s questioning of academic impeachment experts.

        Presumably, these idiots have never been charged with a crime before. When you have been, you are VERY thankful that you are PRESUMED innocent because the weight of the government is substantial even when they don’t have the facts in support.

        IMHAO, we are entering forbidden ground if we let NoNads & the gang prevail on the argument the President is guilty until he proves his innocence. And then we’re going to have to ask how much evidence is enough to avert the presumption.

        Ever since the President came down the escalator, the Dimms have put their totalitarian philosophy out there and now they’re going to use it against our President. We’re next.

          And then ‘their’ money is donated into the hands of Adam Schiff and donations to other candidates to their PACs and campaigns.

      Our conservative Jewish brothers & sisters who support PTrump will NOT be given the voice they deserve. Of course the Dem’s will not acknowledge them, and the enemedia will suppress them.

      Nadler is attempting to convey that Trump = anti-Semitism, in this farcical display. With Jews in the US and worldwide increasingly appreciative of the Trump administration’s efforts, this is the pathetic sort of in-your-face tactic to which Nadler must resort.

      Nadler is baiting. Don’t fall for it. 😉

        BTW, the term “self-hating Jew” is a thing. It has its own Wikipedia page, which is quite interesting – even the great Jackie Mason is mentioned.

        I first heard the term from Mark Levin, who uses it often and with great aplomb. It’s good we have so many fearless conservative Jews who aren’t afraid of words, and will defend their political and religious beliefs against the mob.

        POTUS will be able to introduce evidence that will expose this continuing coup. He will blow this mess completely open. The Dems will witness their own destruction by their own hands.

        Most decisively, an enormous, angry, and extremely determined army of Trump supporters is sitting in reserve. If this abuse and coup is not fixed and justice not delivered, justice will be delivered and the rule of law restored alternatively.

        If AG Barr and appointed agent Durham fail to deliver the restoration of the republic via their statutorily defined application of fact to criminal statute, there is going to be a conflagration. Many of us have had it with this two tiered crony system. Many of us would be proud to participate in a restorative action, if we are compelled to by any slothfull behavior by AG Barr.

          Unfortunately, this all depends on the rules that the idiot RINOs in the Senate agree too. Why? Unlike the Dems, they never amended their rules and it requires the minority to provide input. The minority is not inputting, Schumer is not playing along. And, the R’s have no testicular fortitude to move along with out the D’s.

          McConnell and Graham will fall in line with Pelosi. That is what I think happens. They too will run interference with the ability for Trump to defend himself.

          Why do I say this? Because if the Graham and McConnell were real people and truly wanted American values upheld, they would call this dead on arrival due to the fact that the whole sham is one sided and no real evidence has been produced.

    Nadler’s impeachment inquiry tome is a classic example of opinion, projection, and a powerful belief in both a living Constitution and the ability to divine intent. Trump needs to be impeached because he ought to be impeached. Circular reasoning.

      Circular like NoNads assessment of impeachment. If the impeachment is against a DemocRAT pwesident, it is immoral, illogical and illegal. If it against a Republican President who defeated the self-anointed, destined to be in the White House again (so Bubba could play Hanky and Panky in the Oval again), then in it veracious, virtuous, and verifiable (using the rules incorporated in HR660, not in a court of law.
      The Founding Fathers wanted a system of checks and balances against a rogue president. Never, in their wildest dreams, did they imagine that they would need a system to check a rogue and monolithic, angry, tunnel-visioned, idiotic, selfish-driven party and a Speaker who would resort to such dishonest means to insert herself into the White House against the will of the people in order to change the American laws to grab power, eliminate all changes to that seizure, and destroy a country in short order.

                The “Republicons” in Congress SHOULD have investigated Fast/Furious, and exposed a major scandal, committed by members of the DEMOCRAT Obama administration, as it would have benefitred them, politically.
                They didn’t. Instead they had Gowdy the Cleaner, invedtigate to exonerate.

                Likewise, Lerner, IRS and Tea Party.

                Likewise Benghazi.

                Because the,Republicons were IN ON all 3 scandals, thru G of 8 and SSCI, and couldn’t expose Obama,admin, without exposing themselves.

                And you expect the same Republicon leadership in Congress, to mount a full throated, vigorous defence of PDJT, when his slogan is “Drain the,Swamp”, and they ARE the swamp?

                THEY allowed Barr to be confirmed. Would they do that, if they didn’t know, absolutely positively that he was a cleaner?

                So, its long past asking questions about WHY the Republicons aren’t doing anything.

                Once is happenstance.
                THIRD time, its enemy action.

                Failure to R & R Obummercare can NOT be laid at the feet of one dead scumbag. It was the Republicons who, after promising us for 4 years, after voting 50 times when they knew their sham vites meant nothing, deliberatly, consciously and very sceptically ‘failed’to R&R, when they had the chance.

                The Republicons are NOT “the party of,stupid”, it is deliberate, it is,calculated, and they are as contemptuos of the American people as the,Dems are.

                And they are as in favor of impeachment as Pelosi and the,Dems.

                So, we are LONG past asking “Why don’t the Republicans,…?”

            It will be a pain in the neck to do all this. It will be inconvenient. It may even be uncomfortable, but it is the least we can do to support our President DJT. It is time for the Army of Deplorables to “show up”. The March on the D.C. Deep State begins on the road to Hershey.

              Good for you! One other thing (might not be feasible, but it is good to plan), let the wife drive. That way if traffic comes to a dead stop or less that a crawl, the adult male in the car can get out with a camera and walk forward. He can take a small sign and encourage people in the cars to lower their windows and wave their MAGA hats or give thumbs up or whatever. When traffic slowly moves again, he can stand there and wave and encourage the same people while he films and his own car catches up to him. Won’t be able to do this more than once and the situation would have to be right, but being prepared is not bad.

              Also, be careful.

    Hillary and the rest of the Deep State unindicted coup-conspirators committed documented crimes, but get a pass (ostensibly because they had no intent — or their intent was to stop a Nazi from coming to power).

    Trump and his associates have committed no crimes, but the Clown House Schiff Show has read their thoughts and decided they intended to commit crimes — and thus must be removed and imprisoned.

    The PreThoughtCrime Unit in Minority Report was a cautionary tale, not an instruction manual.

        ELECTIONS have consequences, and sometimes election results ARE the consequences.

        What they do now, WILL have consequences for them, for MANY years to come.

        They are preaching to their choir. We Trump supporters will not be derailed by their antics. For the rest, their lawyerly antics will be wasted as all but the most rabid have already tuned out.
        The media could not swing the last election to Hilary Clinton. I don’t believe the media will swing this election either. That is why Pres Trump’s approval rating continues to climb in spite of all this crap. In fact, I think it is actually moving more people in Pres Trump’s direction. Just like Biden insulting the retired farmer, they continue to demonstrate their contempt for ordinary people. We will demonstrate our contempt for them by electing Pres Trump for a second term.

      Agreed. I thin they chose him because he attended intel questioning and counter facts misrepresentation. Howveer, lets quote from reknowned witch “What difference does it make at this point” They are going to impeach. GOP should boycott this sham process and ask supreme court to stop it.

      My call for greater civility and dialogue may have been the least successful argument I made to the committee. Before I finished my testimony, my home and office were inundated with threatening messages and demands that I be fired from GW.

  28. TMonroe says:

    They didn’t see it as a winner to begin with, not having th reins of power:

    “The essential task of the Coalition of All Democratic Forces during a Trump administration will be to protect democratic institutions against his promised predations and to protect individuals subject to the abuses he promises. One would hope that Congress would be a partner or tool, in such a project, being a coordinate branch of government with vast legislative, oversight, appropriations, and impeachment powers. But I have my doubts that Congress would, in practice, be up for a serious confrontation with Donald Trump. So far, in contrast to many conservative intellectuals and a great many former Republican officials, most Republican members of Congress have jumped—many of them uncomfortably, but they have jumped—on the Trumpist train. And it’s hard to imagine Trump winning the presidency without the GOP retaining control of both chambers of the legislature. The congressional GOP leadership has been, well, something less than a group of profiles in courage—with Sen. Mitch McConnell pretending there is no presidential election going on at all, and certainly no Republican nominee for president, and House Speaker Paul Ryan playing an ongoing game of hot-and-cold which has simultaneously enraged Trump supporters and failed to endear Ryan to Trump opponents.

    The point is that there is no reason at this stage to imagine that the legislature will be a viable venue for push-back, which is a shame considering the powerful set of tools at its disposal. The Coalition of All Democratic Forces should certainly see what kind of use it might make of the legislature, but realistically, we should probably expect that the coalition’s job in Congress will be to prevent Trump from passing anti-democratic legislation. That is, the task in Congress will be a negative one of denying Trump the use of the Article I powers, not the positive one of the coalition’s using them itself.”


    • TMonroe says:

      Again, realize this was written well before the 2016 election, and was cast as defending democracy and institutions:

      “The broader ambition should be a very public, cross-ideological network of lawyers and philanthropists willing to:

      Provide first-rate counsel to defend individuals and groups whom Trump or his minions go after in retaliation for speaking their minds or criticizing him or opposing him politically;

      Actively challenge policy initiatives that threaten core democratic values;

      Monitor the Justice Department and major regulatory enforcement bodies for signs of political corruption or misuse;

      Interface with Congress to maximize whatever opportunities there may be for oversight and legislative push-back; and

      Thereby ensure to the maximum degree possible that American constitutional rights and democratic institutions emerge from a Trump administration as unharmed as possible.

      If I wake up on November 9 to find that Trump has been elected president, I plan to spend the next two months building such a network. The first two people I will talk to will be Boutrous and Tribe, both of whom agreed in an email exchange yesterday to a have a conference call November 9, if necessary, to begin organizing this coalition.

      The goal will not be to challenge everything a Trump administration does, some of which will be lawful, after all, and some of which may be debatably lawful among reasonable people. The goal, rather, will be to offer a systematic defense of the values the Coalition of All Democratic Forces holds in common and to have the ability to respond rapidly to actions that threaten those values: to forestall such actions in court as long as possible, to whittle them down, and to block those that can be blocked. The goal is to use the courts to render Trump’s antidemocratic instincts as ineffectual as possible.”

    It would be great if everyone takes a handful of these people and call their field offices. Not DC, but the youg volunteers who man their phones in these small offices.

    Tell them that you already know about the $5.7 Billion US taxpayer money laundering scheme in Ukraine.

    Tell them you know about Franklin Templeton and BlackRock Group as players, and that Adam Schiff and others were laundering campaign money through these companies that laundered US Taxpayer Money directly from Ukraine..

    Get the kids scared. They should be.

        Its this kind of scrutiny that will be,ESSENTIAL during the Senate trial.

        WATCH for HOW the PROCESS is decided, and established. They will strive to give the APPEARANCE of fairness, while as much as possible denying PDJT an honest opportunity.

        They will make speeches, as meaningless,as,Grahams Kavanaugh speech, because its votes in the bank, for their own reelection.

        ACTIONS, many behind closed doors, are how these Brutas’s will TRY to shiv PDJT between the ribs.

        NOT that I think they will be successful, but they WILL try.


    • Guyski says:

      I beg to differ.

      This thing, that is called an ‘impeachment inquiry’ is all about the visual, the sound bite, nothing else. When Berke, Goldman and Eisen are challenged by the republicans, their arrogance will get in the way. They will come off as real @ssholes.

      When Castor is challenged by the dimmocrats, the dimms hatred will be obvious and Castor’s ‘ah shucks’ personality will benefit him.

      As for his job performance so far, I don’t think he is doing a bad job.

  41. AustinHoldout says:

    Wonder why they decided to use our tax dollars to hire CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY Barry Berke? Wouldn’t they want a prosecutor to prosecute Trump? Maybe Berke is the designated lawyer to advise these criminals how to get right up to the ethical line without crossing. Maybe he’s there to represent them in their criminal wrongdoing on the taxpayers’ dime c


  42. NannyG says:

    Nadler’s “lawfare” elves wrote his report.
    That forced him to have to write (in the Forward)
    “The views and conclusions contained in the report are staff views and do not
    necessarily reflect those of the Committee on the Judiciary or any of its members.”

    Good thing, too, because the report turns thought into crime. (See page 6)
    And, these lawfare elves pretend that they can read minds!

    IF this happened, and it mustn’t, no one would be ever able to rehabilitate themselves or beg forgiveness enough to dig out of the guilty decision.
    It would be the “Me Too” movement times ten.

    1. the dems can go eff themselves

    ps . The views and conclusions contained in this report are staff absolutely unequivocally reflect those of zekness.


  44. Jay Currie says:

    What a complete waste of time. This is not evidence, this is not learned opinion, this is pretending that counsel can be witnesses.

    The Dems have lost the thread. Having your own lawyer testify to pretty much anything is pointless.


  45. Guyski says:

    Wonder if Berke, Goldman and Eisen have ever been a ‘witness’ in any formal setting? Their arrogance and sense of self importance are not beneficial qualities to being a ‘witness’.

    The dimms witness line up so far has produced very unlikeable people.

    Hopefully someone like Brad Parscale will created a video of the worst moments of the dimms witnesses performances.


  46. sunnyflower5 says:

    I’m surprised Nadler didn’t hire Obama’s legal consultant, Greg Craig. How close are Berke, Eisen, and Goldman to him?


  47. mark says:

    Remember John Bolton’s note pad, “5000 thousand troops to Colombia”?

    That strategy should be used by Republicans to reroute the msm coverage of everything from here on out. Some rerouting to real evidence, like writing E Ciamarella and some just to piss them off and take them to dead ends.

    Just my devious mind.

    And lo in those days a shrivelled crone with loose dentures will emerge from the feces encrusted city by the bay to ordain her torso-less SoN to assemble the Articles of Impeachment.

    Articles that accuse Orange Man Bad of Abuse of Power, Obstruction of Justice, and Stuff.

    Torso-less Nadler is that SoN, Shepherd of Nonsense. Perfector of Nonsense. Co-Purveyor of Nonsense with the Pencil-necked one, the Author of Nonsense.

    The White House lawyers for Orange Man Bad addressed the Impeachment Hoax for what it is: Nonsense.
