First Day Of Public Impeachment Hearings Turns Up The Pressure On Moderate Democrats

Published

on

Much attention is now being cast toward moderate Democrats in the House, especially in swing districts, with the first day of public hearings in the impeachment inquiry into President Trump now under wraps.

The day finished up without any major revelations coming to light, highlighting the weakness of the Democrats’ key witnesses in the case against the president. Many of these witnesses are relying on second-hand information, having not interacted even once with the president.

Here’s more from Fox News:

At one point in Wednesday’s hearing, Rep. Mike Quigley, D-Ill., even appeared to embrace hearsay testimony, claiming that “hearsay can be much better evidence than direct” and that “countless people have been convicted on hearsay because the courts have routinely allowed and created, needed exceptions to hearsay.” It was unclear which of those limited exceptions would apply to Wednesday’s testimony — and whether Quigley’s argument would persuade critical swing-vote Democrats.

The House is now comprised of 431 members, meaning Democrats need 217 yeas to impeach Trump. There are currently 233 Democrats, so Democrats can only lose 16 of their own and still impeach the president. 31 House Democrats represent more moderate districts that Trump carried in 2016.

Freshman Rep. Elissa Slotkin, D-Mich. — who flipped a GOP district in 2018 that Trump won by 7 points in 2016 — told Fox News that she was tentatively weighing all the evidence.

“My constituents expect me to make an objective decision,” Slotkin said as the hearings concluded, “not one based on an hour of testimony.”

There’s also a report floating around that is suggesting that if House Democrats impeach the president, Senate Republicans are going to hold a lengthy trial that will “scramble” the 2020 Democratic presidential primary by making it mandatory for several of the contenders to stay put in Washington in order to handle the trial.

It’s almost a guarantee that Trump will be acquitted by the Senate, it being controlled by the GOP and all, so these efforts to impeach him seem to be a waste.

A motion was tabled on Wednesday by a vote of 13-9 that would have subpoenaed the whistleblower to publicly testify.

Video: Biden Can Put the ‘World Back Together,’ Says Failed POTUS Candidate John Kerry

Oh, is that right?

John Kerry failed as a presidential candidate and was arguably the worst secretary of state in modern times. That being said, Joe Biden apparently loves the guy. Go figure. At a recent event in Iowa, Kerry said something that nobody should say about any person – ever. Kerry said Biden can put the “world back together.” And yes, he was absolutely dead serious. WATCH: John Kerry: “Iowa, when you caucus in February, don’t just send a message. Send us a president. Send us a man who can put the world back together. Send us Joe Biden.” https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1203035127166775296?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1203035127166775296&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F12%2Fjohn-kerry-joins-joe-biden-on-iowa-bus-tour-kerry-touts-biden-as-messianic-figure-who-can-save-the-world-video%2F Kerry clearly takes “stupid is as stupid does” to an entirely different level. The guy is just…I don’t know. It’s comical. From earlier that day… Question: “Mr. Vice President, how does it feel to have your friend with you?” Joe Biden: “It feels great to have my friend with me, I can’t think of anybody I’d rather have.” John Kerry: “I’m thrilled to be back in Iowa. I love it.” https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1203019020959510528?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1203019020959510528&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F12%2Fjohn-kerry-joins-joe-biden-on-iowa-bus-tour-kerry-touts-biden-as-messianic-figure-who-can-save-the-world-video%2F If Biden is committing a gaffe, he’s not breathing. The guy thrives on making mistakes. The former VP recently did his best to explain the Second Amendment to his incredibly uninformed fanbase. He blabbered, “I believe in the second amendment but nobody says you can have a rounds — a magazine with a hundred clips in it — a hundred bullets in it. We protect geese more that we protect, no joke, you can only have three shotgun shells when you go shoot for geese. But, guess what, we protect geese better than we do our kids.” WATCH: [email protected] in New Hampshire: “We don’t have the courage to take on the NRA? We protect geese more than we protect, no joke you can only have 3 shotgun shells when you go shooting…

New York Police Officer Bites Into Sandwich, Finds a Razor Blade Stuffed In Between

Oh my goodness!!

There’s a 99% chance that this incident was 100% intentional. A person doesn’t just accidentally leave a razor blade right in the middle of a friggin’ sandwich. Who are we kidding? Is this not, if you really think about it, attempted murder? Shouldn’t it be treated that way, if proven the sandwich maker did what he or she did intentionally? What a shame. Why would anyone even want to be a police officer these days? It’s a lose-lose situation, with the mainstream media and Democrats constantly finding ways to tear them down. Thankfully, there still are brave men and women who are determined to uphold the rule of law and do their best to keep all of us safe. From New York Daily News: An NYPD cop got a sharp surprise when he bit into a sandwich at a Queens shop and cut his mouth on a rusty razor blade stuffed inside, police said. […] The cop, a 24-year veteran of the NYPD, cut the inside of his mouth on the razor as he chomped on the cheesesteak. He was taken to Nassau Community Medical Center for a minor wound. PHOTO: You have to be a special kind of person to support Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). Of course, “special kind of person” can be substituted for ignorant – and should be. AOC supporters aren’t bright, plain and simple. Why this freshman Democrat continues to receive so much attention makes little sense, but she just keeps doing anti-American things and getting away with it. God willing, a conservative will end her political career come next November. Check out her latest ridiculousness, via New York Post: Close to a thousand anti-police protesters descended on Downtown Brooklyn Friday night, blocking traffic, vandalizing a city bus and shouting obscene insults at NYPD cops. The demonstration…
