It’s about time to go on offense with this. Your president didn’t do it. Your president is not guilty. They don’t have a shred of evidence. They don’t have one bit of evidence. They never have had, on any of the allegations they’ve made. So I’m begging you people in the Senate, do not go into this defensive at all. Do not go into this trying to limit the criticism. Do not go into this hoping that they will think what you’ve done is fair.
They’re incapable of being aboveboard and honest about this. You are going to be accused of hatemongering like you are every day no matter what you do here. So the focus needs to be on the result that is the most hurtful and damaging to them and at the same time most helpful to Trump and the Republican Party ’cause this is political. This is a pure political move. – Rush Limbaugh, 12/12/19
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., told Fox News Thursday night that he will coordinate the defense of President Trump in any impeachment trial with White House lawyers, and proclaimed that there was “zero chance” the president would be removed from office.
“The case is so darn weak coming over from the House. We all know how it’s going to end,” McConnell said on “Hannity” “There is no chance the president is going to be removed from office.”
McConnell also said he hoped that none of the members of his caucus would vote to remove the president from office, adding “it wouldn’t surprise me if we got one or two Democrats” to vote to acquit Trump of the charges of high crimes and misdemeanors.
He explained that the articles of impeachment would be different from ordinary legislation that makes its way from the Senate to the House, in that: “We have no choice but to take it up. But we’ll be working through this process hopefully in a fairly short period of time, in total coordination with the White House counsel’s office and the people who are representing the president, in the way all of the Senate.”
McConnell spoke as the House Judiciary Committee prepared to vote to send two articles of impeachment to the full House of Representatives following a marathon hearing in which seemingly no topic — from Hunter Biden’s rampant drug use to a Republican congressman’s past drunken-driving arrest — was off-limits.
It remained unclear how long the markup would last, although Fox News is told it could go until well after midnight ET.
The majority leader declined to elaborate on what a Senate trial might look like or whether Republicans would call witnesses such as former Vice President Joe Biden, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., or the intelligence community whistleblower whose complaint about Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky touched off the impeachment inquiry.
“I’m going to take my cues from the president’s lawyers,” said McConnell, who added that a trial would likely take place early next year if the House voted to impeach Trump before its members went home for the holidays.
“My hope is that it will be a shorter process rather than a long, lengthy process.”
So, you have McConnell saying that there will be a trial and there will be witnesses if the President and his counsel want to call them
Lindsey Graham said yesterday that he wants to just dismiss the Impeachment and get it over with for the country’s sake.
Senator Graham has been showing a lot of spunk since the passing of Sen. John McCain, his mentor.
I’m wondering if Sen. Graham does not want to go through a trial because, having been in the Senate for several years, some of his friends across the aisle may be connected to shady deals in the Ukraine just like the Bidens are.
Sleepy Joe has already boasted that he would not honor a subpoena to testify in an Impeachment Trial in the Senate.
Fat chance of that.
That is going to be a “Command Performance”.
Yesterday, you could hear the House Democrats in the Judiciary Committee’s Sphincters slam shut when Rep. Matt Gaetz brought up Hunter Biden’s drug abuse.
They all know that Hunter and his Dad are the keys to exposing a huge scandal involving the Democrats and Ukraine.
One of President Trump’s Campaign Promises was to “clean out the Swamp” in Washington.
All of the actions taken by the Democratic Establishment and the Deep State against Candidate and President Trump to stop him from winning the Presidency and then to end his Presidency were because of the Dems’ hatred for him which is based in fear.
The Democrats are deathly afraid that their unmitigated corruption involving the way that they have become millionaires while in office will be exposed for every American to see.
It has not just been through “investments”, like Nancy Pelosi and her husband’s real estate dealings in California.
Like in the case of The Clinton Foundation Pay for Play Operation and the Biden Burisma Scandal, some of it has involved our Foreign Policy.
And, that puts the entire nation at risk and it MUST be addressed.
