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:

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.

    These people have EXTREME CONFIDENCE that their ballot fraud and vote harvesting deployed in 2018 midterms will work the same in 2020.

    What exactly are these lawyers going to do. Represent the prosecution and (Castor) the defense?

    Castor is an incredibly smart guy…has a much more agile mind than the others. But what is this all about? Did I miss something? (Where’s ristvan when I need him?)

    It’s good that it’s the same lawyers we’ve seen before. They’re so obviously partisan and prejudiced that the lie that this “isn’t political” and is all about the Constitution and democracy is risible. And I really appreciate the fact that the other side thinks these guys and the Karlan’s of this world are still respected. They simply are unable to see that the curtain has been drawn, the masks have been removed, and everyone sees the naked Emperor for what he really is. Even three analogies in one sentence won’t help the Dems stop digging this hole.

    So Schiff is allegedly using the NSA too for his dirty Tricks.

      Given discrepancies cited by Nunes between his records and the ones posted by Schiff, it will be interesting to see how that fact evolves. A leak trap is still a possibility given the recent convictions for leaks of classified information.

      If somebody within NSA declassified information as part of some sort of inquiry by Schiff, there will be records (both paper and electronic).

      Consider, AG Barr and Director Wray are desperate to save their agencies. What better way than to spin NEW operations to gather evidence, catch people and prosecute without requiring use of PAST information. This is not complex and pretty simple to contemplate. Just draw the curtain on the past and begin with a clean slate of evidence vs the criminals identified as bad actors within the government. It will not be popular and it will not get to the heart of real coup perpetrators but will catch them again as most criminals are the proverbial moth vs flame.

        thedoc’s rationale makes much sense. Out with the old; in with the new – a TD for Team Deep State, even if they lose a few players resulting from investigations of “current” coup driven engagements.

    Stephen Castor didn’t impress me. Too much pausing. Pausing is a gift to the witness.

      Not sure I’d agree. A pause causes a witness to not know what is coming next.

      Castor’s style is more Columbo (I know. Columbo was not a lawyer. But those thought-filled pauses were effective ….). His questioning was very incisive. It will be interesting to see how he presents the Trump defense.

    It appears the democrats are going to attempt a trial that looks like a trial in the movie, “The Minority Report”. Declare a bad thought existed and then claim the President wanted to act on it some time in the future.

    That sometime is going to be pegged to the 2020 elections and everybody helping the president had the same thought. Hence, the conspiracy to impact the 2020 elections charge in Schiff’s Crypt and Clown Show report. The phone calls are part of the evidence a conspiracy was was in progress, ignore the content and context of the calls as those are immaterial to the democrats. Its all quantity (allot of communications, hear-say rumors by “experts” and “expert” opinions on the rumors) and optics at this point.

      All this material provides the talking points for the media to pour into the ears of the lemmings 24/7, to sway public sentiment.

      Note, the Perry Mason generation is no longer in the majority, having been replaced the current shallow, too busy to investigate sound bite literate generations.

  9. Has anyone figured out yet, why the Dems put Crazy Joe as their front runner? So they could charge Trump with getting dirt on his political opponent! This was planned from the very beginning. Even Joe knows he’s not going to be the dems nominee. He’s also doing this to protect himself and Hunter.

      Crazy Joe, much like AOC, the 4-Amigas, et al are public distraction as easy to reach pinatas and squirrels running across the lawn.

      Note, Nancy has control over the ethics and rules committees. She has essentially reoriented the hate of her enemies in the House, lest they face censure and removal. I never gave thought, in the past, to considering Nancy wants to be the first Female President. Hence the impeachment show is her campaign with no competitors and not a single one of the current Democrat Candidates can counter her without calling for an end to the impeachment.

      Just like 2008, 2012 and 2016; the party puppet masters will pick the chosen one and pay off the others. Nancy’s impeachment effort gives them another option.

    If you think the Senate is ours, please rethink that. The Senate is Deep State. If you need any proof of that, just look at what Graham is saying. Quotes below. The absolute best thing that can happen is the threat of President Trump being able to call every single witness he wants. That would stop the House impeachment in its tracks. There would be no impeachment. But, the Dems have already planned things with the Senate. The House will impeach to toss a black mark on President Trump for the 2020 election and the Senate will acquit because many Senators don’t want President Trump to call witnesses… they’re just as dirty and that would eventually come out in a Senate trial. Graham is now setting the “tone” so that President Trump won’t get to call any witnesses.

    Planned from the beginning. Find anything to impeach. Obstruction didn’t work. Dems freaked over President Trump talking about investigation Ukrainian corruption and jumped the gun to impeach, but they were looking for something anyway. They’d just hoped for something better. Still, impeach to sway public opinion, put a black mark on President Trump for the 2020 election, and bury it all in the Senate so no Swamp Crimes come out. It’s basic Dem Swamp Critter 101. The MSM covers and helps. Big tech censors.

    Except that the public wasn’t swayed, the Dems had to jump the gun and force an impeachment, the Republican opposition was fiercely sharp and blew holes in everything the Dems brought up, and President Trump’s base will never leave him. Pelosi was right when she said they’d impeach even if that meant losing the House. They had to, to try to cover up their crimes.

    “When 51 of us say we’ve heard enough, the trial is going to end,” Graham said. “The president’s going to be acquitted. He may want to call Schiff, he may want to call Hunter Biden, he may want to call Joe Biden. But here’s my advice to the president: If the Senate is ready to vote and ready to acquit you, you should celebrate that. And we can look at this other stuff outside of impeachment. Impeachment is tearing the country apart, I don’t want to give it any more credibility than it deserves.”
