Jay Sekulow Presser: Defense Begins Saturday 10am With Three Hour Preview – And Don’t Forget Nellie Ohr…

During a Senate trial break President Trump attorney Jay Sekulow gives a short presser to rebut some of the more egregious disinformation from the House prosecutors.

Sekulow smartly connects the lengthy Schiff prosecution point about foreign interference in U.S. elections to Nellie Ohr, the wife of the third ranking DOJ official, Bruce Ohr, working for Fusion-GPS and Hillary Clinton while contracting with British and Ukraine  officials for an investigation into Donald Trump.  ie. actual foreign interference.

.

Additionally, on a housekeeping and scheduling note, Sekulow states the Senate has requested an accommodation from the defense to limit opening to 10am-1pm on Saturday.  So the defense segment will begin at 10am tomorrow then break after three hours and resume on Monday January 27th.

        South Carolina has an open primary system where you can vote in any parties primaries. Lindsay Graham is a weak, vacillating, weasel in the Senate that not only abandons GOP causes at the drop of a hat, but joins the “other” side (the one he’s usually on) to offer them the fig-leaf of bipartisanship in the press. That’s why he wins in S. Carolina: Republicans only have his name on the ballot and Democrats sneak into the GOP open primary to vote for a candidate that will sell the GOP out when in office. It’s an effective strategy.

        Let me put this politely. The use of the double negative, because of its frequent usage among the common, working folk throughout history, probably goes back to the very beginning of history, or even further back. In ancient Egypt, we note the usage of doubled signs, “determinatives”, meant only to emphasize the presence of a sound, not to actually pronounce it twice. Many doubled letters in modern words no doubt originated in such emphasizing textual (not spoken) reiteration.

        And, again in Egypt but also worldwide, if one goes back far enough, texts (whether written or chiselled) were priestly and meant to be sacred, and “eternal”. So it got to be a habit, over millennia, if you were Serious (amen) in your use of words, or closely admiring or copying of the ways of acolytes (and who wasn’t, at one desperate and depressing time or another, through the millennia of invasions, conquests, and scattering of one’s whole civilization) to use doubled expressions, especially doubled symbols, to indicate great emotional intent (“ain’t” comes to mind here, as a counterexample of an emphasized negative, in which not doubling but elision, or omitting, is used, to emphasize the “n’t” or “not” part, and also letting it represent both “is/are not” and “have not” — but We Digress).

        The point being, the double negative has a long, long history, and when we’re excited, we allow ourselves to lapse into it. But as Buffy the Vampire Slayer famously said, “That would be WRONG.”

        As for the above article: The Democrats are entirely the Insane Left, since 2008 (Bush drove them crazy; I assure you, having voted Democrat myself after Nixon, until 2008 when I saw in Obama what America had done to itself over the last 50 odd years, while I had been focused on my science.) The ancients used lions; the French tried guillotines…the real trick, in dealing with insane barbarians/misanthropists, is to not let them get so far in the first place. But we blew it on that point, and now we have the LeftischeStag (like the Reichstag, get it?). Hercules diverted two, not just one but two, whole rivers to clean out the Augean Stables. These, of course, are just a few examples of possible solutions now. Or you can let the “system” work (that would be McConnell, and Barr — AIEE! — just to remind you how well THAT will go).

    Listening to Sekulow. One concern/question. He refers to B. Ohr as the #3 at the FBI. Wasn’t he actually at the DOJ and not at the FBI? I’m hearing this about the 4min mark, although he repeats it several times. Just concerned as the facts they cite need to be factual…or little details like this will be exploited by the opposition…

    Not much concern here for the timing of the defense’s presentation in terms of when and who will watch.
    Almost none of the defense will be reported in the media. Your screens will go dark.
    No one’s going to see it no matter how brilliantly it’s executed.
    Coronavirus will be the lead news story beginning shortly and will only end when the Democrats demand docs and witnesses.

      A basic rule in a jury trial is to be the last lawyer heard, before the jury breaks for a weekend, if you can manage it. The three hours tomorrow is perfect for the senators, and public, to be presented with a strong outline of what’s coming. No one will be bored. Sekulo’s interview points to great three hour presentation.

      No, I’m not worried about the 3-hour Saturday.
      I’m not sure everyone understands yet how concussed the Fossils of the Senate are, after being subjected to 3 days of Adam Schiff Assault.

      Even the Democrats now want this gone. And I guarantee that at least 50% of the Democrats now actually hate and despise Adam Schiff.

      Were I a senator, there’s no way I could not have withstood Schiff’s merciless, OCD onslaught without standing up and rebelling from sheer mental and physical pain, being confined with nothing but water and milk and candy, like some luxury middle-school after-hours detention.

      I guarantee that a significant percentage of this septu-octogenarians were pushed far past their breaking point by Schiff, and they stayed in the room only out of stubborn, ossified curmudgeonness.

      I think that Schiff singlehandedly killed the impeachment with his insane extrapolations.

      Great point. Its a win-win demand POTUs can make.
      Win if the transcript is released, and as big to bigger win if the demand is rejected.

    Just ruminating here on the last comment….yes, why shouldn’t the Senate hear from ALL of the witnesses that Shiff and Nadler summoned, including the testimonies they haven’t released. Since it is unlikely that they would release them does the Senate have to subpoena the transcripts from the House? Has that ever happened? Can or should that happen? After the House Managers want the “truth”. Before any new witness or documents are considered they should have access to everything the House had. Should the President’s team demand that under discovery? Should the Dems have to provide it under the Brady rules (yea, like with Flynn). As I said just ruminating….

      Make the demand, tomorrow during the hearing, regardless of the authority to enforce it.
      If transcripts, especially Atkinson’s (sp?) released, great. If the demand is rejected, maybe better; the Dem’s refusing to release testimony would be a nice win.

    Pompeo explodes at NPR reporter, asks if she could find Ukraine on a map
    by Laura Kelly
    24 Jan 2020

    “The secretary has been accused of failing to protect Yovanovitch from a smear campaign spearheaded by Giuliani. He has also been implicated in green-lighting Giuliani’s shadow foreign policy in Ukraine, with U.S. Ambassador to the E.U. Gordon Sondland testified that “everyone was in the loop.”

    Kelly asked Pompeo if he tried to block Giuliani’s efforts in Ukraine.

    “The Ukraine policy has been run from the Department of State for the entire time that I have been here,” Pompeo responded. “I’ve been clear about that, I know exactly what we were doing, I know precisely what the direction our State Department gave to our officials around the world about how to manage our Ukraine policy.””
