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.

        Heck, that’s even akin to why they won’t need that much time… look at the 39 hours of schitt blathering, ain’t worth squat, as it ain’t real at all.

        And all this is barely a warm up, stage setting scenario for the coming Epic Term Two.

These people are certifiably insane.

      If the Senate had not asked for that “accommodation”, the defense would have been stuck with an all-day television broadcast on Saturday – into the evening. This works out very well for the defense. After a week of Schiffatigue, they get a crisp three hour teaser with the rest to begin in Monday when everyone is fresh. And Schiff & Co are just a bad memory of terminal boredom.

      Sekulow and the others will not be boring, and they have enough street sense to not wear the Senate members out with rumination ….

I’d bet George will give 15+ minutes to Schitt, leading off with him and fewer minutes for a rebuttal. BTW, like everything else on that program, even their discussion “roundtable” is a lie. The table is obviously rectangular.

Last week (though I missed it but did read an online transcript of it) she did a segment on the State of the Swamp. Nothing terribly shocking or particularly new to regular readers of CTH but she does appear on a MSM channel whose audience might cogitate and assimilate some of the information she and her guests report. This weekend Attkisson is going to cover the VA gun rights sanctuary city movement and the Flint, MI and other US cities’ dirty water problems and will interview Scott Adams regarding his new book Loser Think.

    • Actually, I think this was done as a favor to the defense. No one watches tv on Saturday afternoons, and PTrump complained about it today on twitter, that Saturday is dead time and his defense had to start on Saturday. So, this gives them three hours, but they still have Monday, Tuesday, and 5 hours on Wednesday. So, I think McConnell talked to Trump.

      That is a mischaracterization. It is not against President Trump, because some of his defense team have already said they “do not think witnesses are necessary…” In other words, they do not want them.

      And you should not want them either. As long as this trial is open, the president is in danger. If witnesses are called, privileges asserted, it drags on. Anything could happen. What happens if RBG drops dead? Do you think we will get a new justice? What happens if 4 or 5 republican Senators are in an “accident”?

      The “political savants” who think dragging this out is good for POTUS are wrong.

        Rudy G, “the Worlds Mayor” has been trying, with great effort and little effect, for at least 5 months, to make a big enough noise, on the Biden corruption, and has gotten no where, really.

        I don’t see PDJT as being in any risk here, and I don’t think he does, either.

        IF Executive Priviledge is asserted, it will be upheld, which absolutely destroys one of the articles.

        You can’t base your legal strategy on “Suppose the Judge gets hit by a bus?”

        You go with what you got, and adapt to circumstances.

        Personally, I think getting witnesses HURTS the Dems; they don’t WANT witnesses, or 6e grand jury material, or mulvaney and bolton to testify.

        They want to say they TRIED to get those things, in order to make their case, and the,Republican controlled Senate BLOCKED them, covering up for PDJT.
        THAT has been one of their tactics, all along. They ask for 6e material, cause they know they can’t have it.
        They subpoena Bolton and Mulvaney, cause they know ANY President will assert Executive Priviledge, to protect the priviledge, and not establish a precedent.
        They COUNT on being refused.
        Best way to counter, is to give them what they are asking for, and don’t really want.
        But, can’t give them 6e, or Bolton Mulvaney. But witnesses? They REALLY don’t want the defence to be able to call witnesses.
        And, the issue will be decided by the,Senate. I don’t think D or R Senators want to have us hear what Defence witnesses will say.

        So, I suspect its a non-issue, but I wouldn’t mind.

          Prof. Dershowitz sure seems to look different these days to me. He keeps making sure we all know that he is a HRC person all his family friends are pissed because he is defending the Constitution under PDJT. I have noticed he never says he is defending the President, only the Constitution. I am wondering how he got on the team, any quid pro quo? Just asking.

    You know, I am excited for the GOP side to refute all the malicious lies….but I’m really interested to see what the Democrat questions could possibly be! They KNOW the truth, they KNOW nothing they’ve said has been proven, they KNOW the articles of Impeachment are ludicrous. So WHAT kind of questions can they ask and shouldn’t they be afraid of the answers??

      mark,
      In a trial, yes. As Sukelow said, “opening the door”; testimony that otherwise wouldn’t be admitted, CAN be admitted, if the OTHER SIDE OPENS THE DOOR.
      Litigators know this. Hacks like Nadless and Pencil neck may have never known, or forgot.

      If they insist on, and get opportunity to admit additional documentary evidence, Sukelo can too.

      If Sukelo alleges muh russia was phase one, as he did in the presser, and Dems say “prove it, unfounded allegation!” They open the door for the kracken: declass it all, and lay it out for all to see.

      I see this,as a minefield for Dems, and no risk for team Trump.

      In History, this shampeachment move may well go down as the stupidest self defeating move since;
      “HEY! Its a HORSE statue,..a TRIBUTE to US. And its got WHEELS on it,…well you know the rest.

    In my opinion, this 3 hour “introduction” followed by the meat of the defense on Monday is a perfect strategy.

    Also in my opinion — they should wrap it up Monday. 11 hours should be more than enough to destroy these 2 lame Articles. I hope they don’t listen to those who want them to use the time to go any various tangents about this and that.

    If they do this, then starting Tuesday the questions phase starts. As I understand it, Senators must pose their question in writing to Roberts, who then asks it of the side the question is for.

    What I don’t understand is how filibusters can be prevented — Schiff taking 4 hours to answer a question — and whether the questions will be asked alternately to the sides — one to the House, one to Trump’s attorneys, etc. In addition: is there any mechanism at all to rule on questions, or responses that are “improper, immaterial, or irrelevant”?

    Final question: I assume all questions, and answers, will happen in open session and when the 16 hours are up….questions end?

President Trump interrupted the NAZI takeover of the USA and the National Socialist Democrat Party (NAZI) don’t like it.

He and Cipollone and crew will speak with authority, knowledge, passion, and effectiveness. I have no doubt at all that they will do our President and the Constitution well.

    There is no legal, valid, impeachment that has occurred in the House (the only place it can occur under the Constitution).
    The facts of the House (inaction) cannot be changed.
    For tactical and political reasons, the House did not vote to authorize the full judicial impeachment process. Without such a vote, the House did not gain judicial enforcement authority. This is fact.
    The non-impeachment by the House is fatally defective. Legally, it does not exist.
    Neither the Senate, nor any court of law, can cure this fatal defect.
    There is no case to hear, because no case — no House vote/action — exists.
    This fatal defect lasts forever and can be raised at any time and on appeal.

    So, what if the Senate were to adopt a resolution holding, in the alternative, as follows:

    1) Without a vote, the House impeachment is legally defective, null and void and of no force and
    effect; and
    2) Even if deemed effective, in any event, the Senate ACQUITS on each/both
    of the charges.

    Just a thought.

    This just in from the “1600 Daily”:

    The White House • January 24, 2020
    The dishonest impeachment case

    Today marks the end of House Democrats’ 3-day presentation of their historically weak Articles of Impeachment against President Trump. Starting tomorrow, the President will have a chance to respond to Democrats’ dishonest case.

    As expected, the media is going the extra mile to prop up Rep. Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) performance this week. Their hope, much like Schiff’s argument itself, is that if you repeat a lie enough, people might soon forget you don’t have any actual evidence for it.

    MUST WATCH: Caught! ABC anchor tries to cut off the President’s counsel

    That strategy was on full display in today’s finale. Schiff spent long portions of his presentation lecturing Senators on the importance of U.S. security aid to Ukraine, claiming that President Trump undermined it. The truth, of course, is that President Trump is the one who secured that lethal defense aid for Ukraine in the first place, reversing the Obama Administration’s policy of weak support.

    It gets better. Guess who voted against authorizing the assistance for Ukraine? House Democrats’ own impeachment managers. Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) voted no on the FY2020 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which included $300 million for Ukraine. Nadler joined Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) in voting against the FY2019 NDAA, as well, with its $250 million for Ukraine.

    Unfortunately, this behavior is par for the course for Democrats in Washington lately. Their obsession with attacking President Trump has led to all sorts of outright lies over the past 3 years, many of which the media simply declined to fact-check:

    Beginning in 2017, Schiff lied multiple times that he had seen evidence of collusion between President Trump and Russia. Of course, the Mueller Report exposed that as a leftwing hoax—so Schiff just moved on to Ukraine.

    Also in 2017, Schiff tried to repeatedly mislead the public on the credibility of the debunked Steele dossier. In 2018, he issued a memo to Republicans stating that the FBI and Justice Department didn’t abuse the surveillance process to spy on the Trump campaign. That is now a proven falsehood.

    Chasing another hoax, Schiff tried to obtain compromising photos of the President that never even existed. He was duped by Russian pranksters.

    It was discovered that Schiff’s team coordinated with the whistleblower at the center of the Ukraine allegations before the complaint was ever even filed. Schiff had previously lied that there was no contact with the whistleblower.

    That’s just a small sample of some of the worst lies from one Democrat impeachment manager. But no matter how many things they make up, the facts of the case won’t change: President Trump is not accused of a corrupt action or of breaking the law. He is under attack by avowed political enemies on the subjective basis of motive and intent because they disagree with his policies.

    Think about that as a precedent.
