President Trump Adds MAGAnificent Seven to Impeachment Defense Team…

The gang is getting back together again.  Representatives Jim Jordan, John Ratcliffe, Mark Meadows, Debbie Lesko, Elise Stefanik, Lee Zeldin and Doug Collins have been selected as additions to President Trump’s impeachment defense team. UPDATE: and Mike Johnson

The MAGAnificent Seven

WHITE HOUSE – Today, President Donald J. Trump announced that the following Members of the House of Representatives will serve as part of his team working to combat this hyper-partisan and baseless impeachment. This initial list includes the following Members:

♦ Congressman Doug Collins
♦ Congressman Jim Jordan
♦ Congresswoman Debbie Lesko
♦ Congressman Mark Meadows
♦ Congressman John Ratcliffe
♦ Congresswoman Elise Stefanik
♦ Congressman Lee Zeldin
♦ ¹Congressman Mike Johnson

Throughout this process, these Members of Congress have provided guidance to the White House team, which was prohibited from participating in the proceedings concocted by Democrats in the House of Representatives. The President looks forward to their continued participation and is confident that the Members will help expeditiously end this brazen political vendetta on behalf of the American people. (link)

UPDATE – Oh man, they messed up my “MAGAnificent Seven” slogan by unexpectedly having eight. LOL.  Oh well, “Elite Eight” (pictured below) because it makes sense to include an actual constitutional attorney ¹Mike Johnson.  This is a big honor.  These names will appear in history books generations from now.

…And not Matt Gaetz LOL

      I still have no idea what Matt was thinking. I suppose most feel that way. I don’t mind diversity of opinion in the GOP it’s truly what separates us from the left. The left actually does have independent thought within its ranks I suspect. However one would never know because when it comes down to brass tax they fall in line. And not in a loyal soldier type fashion but rather as nervous ward of a dictatorial hierarchy. Back to Gaetz, as I said I don’t mind him expressing his thoughts but now is not the time. And he should know what the left and their media will capitalize on his decent.

      I love seeing this group assembled. I wish Gaetz was there but he certainly doesn’t deserve it after such a poor display of judgement.

        Luke – love your avatar – and I agree about Matt. Poor judgment at this critical time to side with the dimms, even if he disagreed with Trump, because the higher point he thought he was making is lost in the blitz of the “turncoat” propaganda, no matter how hard he tried to explain himself. Very unfortunate.

        I wish he would have taken to Twitter and advocated for congress to man up and take responsibility. He should have made the distinction about imminent threats. He should have claimed floor time in the House some evening when the business of the day was done and made a vigorous case for separation of powers and where the lines should be drawn. Lastly, he should have made a strong statement about the above and then declared that he absolutely would not be lured into playing political games over serious — deadly serious — matters.

No. All about Gaetz. Well, he can think about this for a long, long time…looking from the outside in.

          I disagree with it being “All about Gaetz”. He has been a pretty staunch and outspoken defender of President Trump for some time.
          In this instance, I believe he reacted based on emotion and believing he was making a bigger point about Congress voting to authorize military action, without realizing how the rabid left would use his vote against him, and against POTUS. He also may not have realize how quickly any ability for him to further make his point would be lost and forgotten. The left would not have cared.
          I am not defending his vote, but I don’t believe we should throw a good Republican under the bus so quickly for this vote which was not going anywhere anyway. I am also not saying he should not face consequences, and as we see, he is.
          He has been in office 3 years, and served in Florida for 6 years before that. He is much better than 100% of the Dems who have been there since Christ was a Corporal.

          For what it’s worth, this is what he said about his vote:

          “Although the vote was along party lines, one close Republican ally of Trump’s spoke out in favor of the resolution, saying that on Thursday morning he had attended a burial at Arlington National Cemetery.

          “If the members of our armed services have the courage to go and fight and die in these wars, as Congress we ought to have the courage to vote for them or against them,” said Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., “I support the president; killing Suleimani was the right decision. But engaging in another forever war with the Middle East would be the wrong decision, and that’s why I’m voting for this resolution.””

        Honestly, with the team that President Trump has already assembled for the Senate hearings, Matt doesn’t add anything.
        He is still very useful on the sidelines cheering for our team during this impeachment scam.

          Luckily there’s so much talent among this group, the President had a deep bench to choose from.

          I still think Gaetz nailed though, in responding to McConnell on War Room Impeachment about House members turning the Senate into a circus: “if it is going to be a circus, you need someone who knows how to ride an elephant.”

    Impeachment Trial

    If there is going to be an impeachment trial PDJT legal team should subpoena
    1. Hillary Clinton
    2. Comey
    3. Brennan
    4. Clapper
    5. Page
    6. Strzok
    7. Etc.

    Why! This impeachment trial is a continuation of the coup to frame the President of criminal acts that they allegedly actually did and they did not follow normal investigative policies and procedures for political reason.

    These subpoenas should not conflict with Barr and Durham; in fact it will apply more pressure on them.

    PDJT has many paths to destroy the coup/criminals and if there is an impeachment trial (IMO) PDJT should not pass on this opportunity.

    Their testimonies under oath will add another layer to the mountains of evidence and most will perjure themselves because the paper trails and other testimonies will conflict. IMO-Consolidated; 500 years in prison for perjury charges.

    PDJT has a bound duty to ensure proper investigative/prosecutorial procedures are implemented since PDJT acknowledged criminal acts for over 3-years creating a bound duty.

    PDJT will implement Justice.

        Discredit the same witnesses the democrats rely upon for their charges, none of whom have first hand testimony. Call witnesses who refute those people.

            No, he cannot do both at once. There is not, at this time. any proven evidence that any member of the House of Representatives is involved or motivated by a coup attempt. At best, there is ample proof they have been deliberately interfering in his duties as President and harassing him with the intent to impeach him since the day he was elected. That can maybe be used to prove an unconstitutional motivation for impeachment charges.

            But he would only muddy the waters by trying to prove a coup without enough evidence to prove either the coup or that any members of the House are involved. And the Bidens? That has to be investigated before their corruption can be proven as fact.

              This is the first time PDJT can take control of his defense and help Barr/Durham destroy the coup by also going on the offense (VERY EASILY).

              They link (voluminous links) the massive conspiracy (coup) with all the corruption to allegedly frame PDJT of criminal acts that they actually did with no legal basis and the impeachment is a continuation; just like this impeachment. Just like Hillary allegedly motivated the 7th floor of the FBI and the DOJ, not to follow normal policies and procedures in investigating Hillary Emails (communicator) to the Clinton Foundation for political reason (Consent Agreement). Hillary is allegedly the motivator for Fisa and….

              I could write 10 pages to link the impeachment with the coup…use your imagination. The democrats have been using fake law and fake facts for 3-years. You should not be scared to be creative in applying real facts and real laws (criminal codes).

              Again, my point is that both can be done if there is the opportunity.

                Since we have little hope of prosecutions and prison for them, instead of taking their passports, let them flee the country, freeze their assets, then revoke their passports. Issue arrest warrants if they are ever to show their faces in the U.S. again. (forever as the nanny-goat likes to say), and seize their wealth and properties under asset forfeiture.

      P/T has so many paths/ways to destroy the coup and if this opportunity was forced; he almost has a duty to ensure others are also questioned under oath.

      After watching all of the House impeachment proceedings I’m not particularly worried about this turning into a mess. Everyone had a different area they addressed. Some very important points were however repeated by different members on a as needed basis. This is way to important to leave to chance and I’m sure committee members will have the press issue addressed.

      We can expect Schiff to lie and try to bring non House witness/non cross examined testimony as facts in the Senate proceedings.

      The defense against Lev Parness last minute BS lies in the fact that the Democrats did not present him in the House investigation portion. There was time and they obviously did not want him cross examined. In the end it is US that the democrats are trying to convince.

        Hopefully, the Trump team and extended team all huddle and lay out their internal rules. Some of these guys are media personalities, and those big egos can get in the way sometimes. This trial isn’t going to bring down the whole deep state. The goal is a speedy and efficient acquittal of President Trump. Message discipline will be very important. The GOP has been a little scattered in their messaging since the vote last month…some calling for a trial…some calling for dismissal…some calling for witnesses…some saying “no, just vote and acquit”.

        Totally agree on the rest of what you wrote. The Dems are going to keep throwing spaghetti against the wall. The GOP needs tight message discipline to keep the focus on the so-called “evidence” the Democrats are providing, and then destroy that “evidence” on cross-examination while sending the House a subpoena for all the testimony they have withheld.

      I think these guys are there to handle the media & when the House weasels start their parseltongue nonsense, lies, & whatever other dirty tricks they have planned, they can quickly advise the litigators as to what is really going on, IF they need it. These people know the enemy & the battlefield as well as anyone.

        Yep, and to help the Senate navigate the “edited” testimony the House has been leaking to the public. There’s a lot of stuff that either wasn’t allowed, wasn’t ask, or it directly refutes the Dem’s narrative. The House team can help with that, such as what exactly they heard ICIG Atkinson testify to…which must be bad for Democrats because they refuse to release the transcript.

    Re Matt: I almost deleted his twitter, but decided to keep it to see how he would recover….his twitter was quiet a few days after President Trump had a phone chat with Matt. Now Matt sounds like a meek wittle boy trying to act like that Mouse That Roared…I came this close to sending Matt a pacifier, but decide he wasn’t worth my money.

    Thank you, Sundance, for all those great articles you have done and the amount of research that went into them. We love and appreciate you, Sundance.

  37. Matt is from the Pensacola, FL district which has some big brass Navy types with deep pockets, and the previous head of the Navy was insubordinate and vigorously opposed to the President.

    Now I’ve grown quite cynical of Congress, even “our own”, so grains of salt are advised, but those dots do seem pretty easy to connect. #FollowThe$$$ 🤔

    So we now have republican house Intelligence committee members who sat in on the secret Schiff meetings able to address the Senate/jurors about the depositions and testimony that Schiff did not release. They are not “called witnesses” they are last minute appointees. I bet democrats/lawfare are going nuts. LOL

    This calls for another bag of pop corn.

    Repost? If not here is the “Mitch” agenda to be voted upon tomorrow,

    “To provide for related procedures concerning the articles of impeachment
    against Donald John Trump, President of the United States. ”

    Best I can tell, this is organization resolution with the “Clinton Trial” procedures basically unchanged.

    PROCEDURE AND GUIDELINES FOR
    IMPEACHMENT TRIALS IN THE
    UNITED STATES SENATE

    ******
    Have to see how it plays out but in the Clinton Trial, A motion to dismiss was voted on before a vote was taken on the question of witnesses; in the Mitch agenda, motions will be entertained after the witness vote. A real potential trap is that the depositions of potential witnesses will be allowed based on majority vote for each witness. To me this means with Romney, Collins, Murkowsky and one other RINO, all Dem witnesses could be allowed and all damaging PDJT witnesses, ie. whistleblower, Schiff, Bidens, etc. denied.

    Best outcome is to shut it down with the motion to dismiss but I don’t think Mitch has the votes to do it.

      I keep hearing that, about there not being the votes to dismiss. That is total & complete BS. The Turtle has enormous power. He can control the votes via committee assignments, media exposure, and most importantly, campaign funding\primary opposition along with other things. If Mitch doesn’t have control of his own conference, he should be removed as Leader.

      I’ve liked Gaetz for a while now and especially after he took Al Sharpton to task.

      Watching him cause chaos in the house was great, I laughed for days about that.
      Maybe I’m too judgmental, but seeing him vote with the people that want to destroy our president was a big letdown. Like PDJT says: We’ll see what happens.
