Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

David A. Graham: As White House stonewalling continues, Democrats are starting to speak more openly about the constitutional option, but their leader isn't budging.

FTA:

Moreover, the speaker believes that Democrats are winning on their present course. On Tuesday, a federal judge incredulously rejected the Trump administration's attempt to block the president's accounting firm from turning over his financial records. In April, another federal judge said that a suit from House Dems alleging that Trump violated the Constitution's emoluments clause could go forward. The White House has placed its hope on courts blocking Democrats, and so far the strategy isn't working. Why hastily change course and embark on a risky impeachment inquiry now, when things are all breaking Democrats' way? Impeachment will still be an option later.

This seems to be the subtext for many of Pelosi's comments on impeachment. On face, she says she's not in favor. But her explanations and reasons suggest a different answer: Maybe, just not yet. Both factions of Democrats insist they're acting not out of political expedience, but principle. "This is not about politics, it's about what's best for the American people," Pelosi said Monday, according to Politico. The pro-impeachers agree: Even if there aren't more Republicans with them, and even if conviction in the Senate is sure to fail, it's the right thing to do.

Those high-minded explanations aside, it's also unknowable what the most politically advantageous course of action is for Democrats. The White House doesn't know either. Trump has seethed at the idea of being impeached, but his stonewalling strategy seems almost designed to force Democrats into impeaching him. For the time being, Nancy Pelosi might be the one thing restraining them.

"At least five members of Pelosi's leadership team -- four of whom also sit on the House Judiciary Committee, with jurisdiction over impeachment -- pressed Pelosi (D-Calif.) in a closed-door leadership meeting to allow the panel to start an [impeachment] inquiry, which they argued would help investigators attain documents and testimony that Trump has blocked. Several hours later, Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler met with Pelosi as well and made the case to start the inquiry, he later told his panel member on a call. Pelosi declined to endorse the idea both times"

Pelosi will give in, she just wants to be able to claim she didn't want to do this but the facts forced her to. That will play well among the voters and lend credibility to impeachment hearings.

Whether impeaching Trump will make the man more sympathetic to some I don't know. What is evident from his behavior is that he is scared to death of investigation, and impeachment is the ultimate investigation.

I think Pelosi is not wrong to wait for critical mass. Nixon didn't resign until it was clear there were enough Republicans in the Senate to convict. Does anyone think there are enough Republicans in the Senate to convict today?

No and there won't be; hence, by that logic, no impeachment.

And the reason that happened? Impeachment proceedings which had started in the House unearthed enough compelling evidence to change the holdout Senators minds.

That is the Dems only hope, because if they keep dragging their feet then no one will ultimately care.

Start proceedings now, and the Dems will get all the additional evidence they want.

With the administration's abilities to delay, will that be before, or after the November 2020 election?

All the talking heads seem to agree Trump would just run out the clock, and use the proceedings to make himself a martyr and goose turnout.

Looks like the Wizard Sleeve convention has arrived.

"All the talking heads seem to agree"

You need to turn off Madcow and start thinking for yourself: case law is pretty clear that once Congress shifts from a legislative function (all the hearings currently going on) to a judicial function (starting impeachment proceedings by establishing a Select Committee for Impeachment), then most restrictions regarding CJ evidence go away. At that point, all of Trumps delay tactics will be quickly disposed of by the DC Circuit, and game on.

Over the past couple of days one thing that was in an LA Times article stood out to me: Pelosi herself intimated that she would rather have five investigations going against Trump than one, to maximize exposure. That seems to make sense, but if she continues on that road impeachment will never happen.

If impeachment is political process, then so is every trial at law.

Impeachment the legal process and Constitutional remedy by which the Congess removes an unfit Executive who has committed high crimes and misdemeanors.

Seriously. Not even RightOCenter, who is a lawyer, is going to suggest impeachment isn't a legal process.

Just accept the fact and move on. And try and not make the same mistake again.

A trial at law has such critical components as:

Presumption of innocence
A jury and/or judge
An actual trial where the defendant is provided legal representation

Everything about impeachment is political.

In a way, you are both right: The decision to transform Congress from a legislative body to a quasi-judicial body for impeachment is a political decision, and politics plays a serious part in how the votes go down, but the method of proof in both the House Impeachment and Senate Trial proceedings are more legal in nature.

Hell with a majority in the house, the Dems can impeach, I would like to see their grounds beyond "Orange man bad", the actual high crimes and misdemeanors listed would require a little evidence. But impeachment is just like a grand jury in the house, the actual trial is in the Senate. The Rs have a clear majority there.

A little history lessen, when the Republicans impeached Clinton for perjury,(forget that BJ nonsense), they lost their majority. Even if Trump is removed from office, you will have a bible thumper in office. I would rather have a billionaire playboy, at least he knows how to have a good time.

There are none so blind as those who refuse to see. I would add "There are none so stupid as those who are willfully stupid". And yes I'm looking at you Jefe with that addition.

Not all legal proceedings are trials
Not all trials are criminal
Presidents receive oodles of legal representation
The results of impeachment are not criminal in nature, only removal from office and barring from holding any office-See US Constitution
Impeachment is in the Constitution-making it legal in nature and not political see US Constitution Article 1
Impeachment is TRIED in the Senate meaning it is a trial-See US Constitution Article 1
Impeachment is specifically excluded from trial by jury see US Constitution Article 3

These are facts Jefe. Irrefutable, except to the willfully ignorant.

Impeachment is clearly a legal process. No it is not the typical legal process that a defendant would go through in a court of law. and here's the important part
Because Impeachment is defined by the US Constitution as a legal process separate from trial by jury due to the unique nature of the defendant.

A comment from a Mediaite article:

"Mazar's is handing over all Trump's business dealings and loan and insurance paper work.

Deutsche and Capital One are handing over all his loans and tax information used to get loans.

NY voted to hand over Trump's state tax returns to congress and voted to void double jeopardy so Trump and his kids can't escape justice with pardons.

Barr and DOJ has now agreed to hand over evidence and unredact parts of the Mueller report so congress doesn't go after Barr for contempt.

Trump should have used his Rose Garden speech to resign.

It is all over Trumpsters- even you know in your hearts Trump is finished."

Perhaps Pelosi believes that nickel and diming Trump to death is a more effective means of winning 2020 than attempting impeachment. I can see the argument. Constant drips of information over the next 18 months, all putting Trump on the defensive, as opposed to one big show that Trump can call a "win" when the Republican senate votes to acquit. The dribs and drabs, death by a thousand cuts strategy is at least worthy of consideration.

Yes, Americans want strong leadership. Failing in your duty is weak and not leadership.

To say nothing of the need to stand up to the assault on Congressional powers.

You think Illegitimate President Bucket of ---- won't be touting the entire Russian interference and obstruction as a partisan witchhunt regardless of whether he is impeached or not? Hardly.

Dems should have 3 priorities.

1. Impeach the bastard
2. Passing legislation strengthening our election security
3. Passing legislation making what Illegitimate President Bucket of ---- did in the 2016 election unequivocally illegal.

But they will do nothing of the sort. Illegitimate President Bucket of ---- will be reelected.

It is no way within our power.

Let's consider some facts

1. Russia interfered in our election
2. Russia targeted specific voters with "fake news", information received from the Illegitimate Bucket of ----'s campaign.
3. Russia hacked the democratic party's emails
4. Russia hacked election registration roles
5. Russia hacked election official's computers

There is zero reason to believe that their actions were limited to peeking. They gathered data to be used in misinformation campaigns and I strongly suspect to a near certainty that they changed vote tallies. it would only take a few here and there to swing a state like Fl or Michigan or PA.

You have to be awfully naïve to think that your vote matters.

No reason to let him stack another fake win and leave the Dems having exhausted all options. The investigations have more heft with the prospect of impeachment looming; imagine how meaningless they would seem if they followed a failed impeachment trial.

An LA Times article that I read the other day made a similar argument, supposedly Pelosi, behind closed doors, asked her detractors whether they would rather have one Special Committee hearing that may not result in impeachment or 5 Committee hearings going simultaneously that constantly keep Trump's malfeasance in the newscycle?

Exactly.

Impeachment is a legal process.

That it takes place in a political body by politicians doesn't change that it's a legal process.

Just like the fact that the politics of racism is evident in other legal processes (like jury selection) doesn't mean they aren't legal processes.

Death by 1000 cuts, HA. Illegitimate President Bucket of ---- is immune to such tactics. The American people will interpret this strategy as the Dems have nothing and Illegitimate President Bucket of ---- is a victim. Most Americans DON'T CARE about the supposed death by 1000 cuts. They will see, once again, Dems weak, Republicans strong (and victims-how's that for cognitive dissonance).

One thing you should have learned in the past 4 years is that Illegitimate President Bucket of ---- is no common ordinary president or common ordinary criminal or common ordinary person who feels shame. Tactics like this will have zero effect.

Everyone seems be under the impression that 2020 is the Democrats election to lose (again). And that a slow burn approach on Illegitimate President Bucket of ---- will get them closer to victory.

The problem with that is Illegitimate President Bucket of ---- will most likely win in 2020. I put the odds around 80%. And that is with the supposed death by 1000 cuts. Problem being is that these tactics will not have any impact on voters because either their partisan or they dont care. If you haven't formed an opinion on Illegitimate President Bucket of ---- by now, nothing that could come in the next 18 months will change that.

It is time to get dirty. To crush him. Grind him, his presidency, his legacy, his "business" into the ground.

So give Illegitimate President Bucket of ---- 2 or 6 more years to sow his rancid seeds. Let him become a war president. Let him replace another SC justice or 2. Let the Republican steal yet another election. Who cares.

Our Democracy is a joke.

Trumpy claimed "No Collusion" when no one had accused him of "collusion " and we all know why.

It was the perfect Smoke screen. Because collusion is not even a crime. So there was "no collusion" by trump. There was plenty of cooperation. And way too many contacts with Russians and too many denials.

Anyway you have glommed onto trumps "NO COLLUSION!!" like a fly on 💩.

Trump has abused the power of his office and Obstructed Justice.

He has claimed (like you) that Russia's cybercrimes are a HOAX.

When they are not. Numerous indictments of Russians prove this to be a lie. His Lawyer is going to jail. For lying for trump. His national Security his going to jail for lying. It was all a pack of lies.

Yet still you persist in supporting the lie. Trumps attacks and obstructions against Congress show his true nature. Your continuous efforts at lying and distorting the facts proves yours.

And you wonder why we call you Comrade.

Trump: Pelosi Is ‘Disintegrating Before Our Eyes'



"She's a mess. Let's face it."

President Trump noted Thursday that Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi is becoming physically unable to carry out her job, and is "disintegrating before the eyes" of everyone who meets with her.

"Well they're being very nice to her because they really -- she's a mess. Let's face it. She doesn't understand. They sort of feel she's disintegrating before their eyes," Trump said during a White House ceremony announcing a $16 billion aid package for farmers.

Trump clarified that he believes Pelosi does not understand the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).

"She does not understand it. They want to have her understand before it's finished. It's signed, as you know. Mexico has approved the deal. Canada has approved the deal, and they are waiting to get a signal for her. Now I would say this. The farmers should start talking to the Democrats in the House. The Senate's ready to approve it."

"We made a great deal, but whether or not Pelosi understands it or whether -- I don't think she's capable right now of understanding it. I think she's got a lot of problems," Trump added.

"The whole Democrat Party is very messed up. They have never recovered from the great election of 2016, an election that I think you folks liked very much, right? Well Nancy Pelosi was not happy about it and she is a mess." the President added.

Pelosi has been struggling with public speaking and appearances for months.

During a press conference Thursday, Pelosi again stuttered, slurred her words and forgot questions she was asked almost as soon as they were posed.

Trump and Pelosi have been at each other's throats for days, since the Speaker accused the President of engaging in a cover-up regarding the Mueller report, and claimed that Trump had a ‘temper tantrum' and stormed out of a meeting on infrastructure.

The President slammed Pelosi and Democrats in a press conference Wednesday, saying that they are only concerned with obstructing his presidency.

Meanwhile, the controlled media is parroting Pelosi talking points on Trump, including the ‘cover-up' accusations and the notion that Pelosi ‘gets under the skin' of the President.

They have never recovered from the great election of 2016

That sounds like it was quoted from a dystopian novel.

Thanks...? There is a reason I plonked that idiot several years ago, this just confirmed it in spades.

With all due respect to Tropic Thunder, this segment (altered to reflect CocoChief) came to mind:

[Cocochief, Corky, and Bruce have just learned Obama is leaving office]

CocoChief: [Tied to a tree and going through cocaine withdrawals] Obama, if you untie me and remain President, I will literally suck your dick, right now.

Obama: Man, I told you for the last time, I'm termed out!

CocoChief: I'll cradle the balls, stroke the shaft, work the pipe, and swallow the gravy. Get it over here, buddy. Let's do this.

- I will literally suck your dick, right now.

Psychological projection is often a telling thing; playing out one's own fantasies in public as they are being Abusive to other Members here.
