If House Democrats get their way, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) will flip her position and start the impeachment process against President Trump.

There is a rumor she may come to that conclusion within the next 14 days.

Chad Pergram of Fox News has the scoop…

Sr Hse Democrat who asked they not be identified asserted that Pelosi will likely have to switch her position on impeachment “within the next two weeks.”

The Democrat argued that “the vast majority of us are for impeachment.”

From a senior House Democrat who has their finger on the pulse of the Democratic Caucus. The lawmaker, who asked that they not be identified, tells Fox that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) “isn’t going to be able to hold off on impeachment much longer. It is coming to a head.”

Fox is told there was a hearty debate offstage among Hse Dems today about impeachment. Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI), who runs the Democratic Policy and Commuications Committee, an arm of the Democratic leadership, is now calling for impeachment.

Democrat Rep. David Cicilline weighed in:

If Don McGahn does not testify tomorrow, it will be time to begin an impeachment inquiry of @realDonaldTrump.

From Politico:

House Democratic leaders sparred internally on Monday over whether to begin an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump, with Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her allies rejecting the call to move forward for now, according to multiple sources.

Reps. David Cicilline (D-R.I.), Jamie Raskin (D-Md.), and Joe Neguse (D-Colo.) — all members of the Democratic leadership — pushed to begin impeachment proceedings during a leadership meeting in Pelosi’s office, said the sources. Pelosi and Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) — one of her key allies and a member of leadership herself — rejected their calls, saying Democrats’ message is being drowned out by the fight over possibly impeaching Trump.

The first sitting Republican Congressman has pretty much declared that President Trump needs to be impeached.

The media is sure to run with this story like they’re being chased.

Check it out…

From Politico:

Michigan Rep. Justin Amash became the first Republican lawmaker to declare that President Donald Trump committed impeachable offenses and that Attorney General William Barr “deliberately misrepresented” special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

Amash, whose libertarian views often put him at odds with Trump and his fellow Republicans, posted a series of tweets Saturday afternoon outlining positions that even some Democrats have been unwilling to embrace — an extraordinary development that comes as Democratic leaders face increasing pressure from progressives to launch impeachment proceedings.

His tweets:

Here are my principal conclusions:
1. Attorney General Barr has deliberately misrepresented Mueller’s report.
2. President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct.
3. Partisanship has eroded our system of checks and balances.
4. Few members of Congress have read the report.

I offer these conclusions only after having read Mueller’s redacted report carefully and completely, having read or watched pertinent statements and testimony, and having discussed this matter with my staff, who thoroughly reviewed materials and provided me with further analysis.

In comparing Barr’s principal conclusions, congressional testimony, and other statements to Mueller’s report, it is clear that Barr intended to mislead the public about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s analysis and findings.

Barr’s misrepresentations are significant but often subtle, frequently taking the form of sleight-of-hand qualifications or logical fallacies, which he hopes people will not notice.

Under our Constitution, the president “shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” While “high Crimes and Misdemeanors” is not defined, the context implies conduct that violates the public trust.

Contrary to Barr’s portrayal, Mueller’s report reveals that President Trump engaged in specific actions and a pattern of behavior that meet the threshold for impeachment.

In fact, Mueller’s report identifies multiple examples of conduct satisfying all the elements of obstruction of justice, and undoubtedly any person who is not the president of the United States would be indicted based on such evidence.

Impeachment, which is a special form of indictment, does not even require probable cause that a crime (e.g., obstruction of justice) has been committed; it simply requires a finding that an official has engaged in careless, abusive, corrupt, or otherwise dishonorable conduct.

While impeachment should be undertaken only in extraordinary circumstances, the risk we face in an environment of extreme partisanship is not that Congress will employ it as a remedy too often but rather that Congress will employ it so rarely that it cannot deter misconduct.

Our system of checks and balances relies on each branch’s jealously guarding its powers and upholding its duties under our Constitution. When loyalty to a political party or to an individual trumps loyalty to the Constitution, the Rule of Law—the foundation of liberty—crumbles.

We’ve witnessed members of Congress from both parties shift their views 180 degrees—on the importance of character, on the principles of obstruction of justice—depending on whether they’re discussing Bill Clinton or Donald Trump.

Few members of Congress even read Mueller’s report; their minds were made up based on partisan affiliation—and it showed, with representatives and senators from both parties issuing definitive statements on the 448-page report’s conclusions within just hours of its release.

America’s institutions depend on officials to uphold both the rules and spirit of our constitutional system even when to do so is personally inconvenient or yields a politically unfavorable outcome. Our Constitution is brilliant and awesome; it deserves a government to match it.

Chris Cuomo’s Groping Victim Eviscerates His Response to the Accusations

The creepy Cuomos are at it again.

Chris Cuomo

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo is in a predicament that may feel familiar to his family this week, and his response to the issue is getting exactly the sort of eye-rolling write-off that his brother Andrew grew accustomed to during his final days as the disgraced Governor of New York.

Cuomo the newsman, like his lawmaker sibling, stands accused of an aggressive act of sexual harassment involving a woman with whom he worked.  And, also like Andrew, Chris’ response to the accusation is not going over well.

In a guest essay for the New York Times published Friday, former executive producer Shelley Ross wrote Cuomo squeezed the cheek of her buttock without her permission in 2005. She also produced an email where Cuomo appeared to admit to the incident and apologized for his behavior. Ross expected CNN’s most-watched host to have evolved since the incident occurred, but feels his response to her essay proves he’s “no more enlightened” today than he was at the time of the inappropriate touching.

“I was hoping that in 15, 16 years that he had changed, but he’s no more enlightened today than he was then, as demonstrated by his response,” Ross told Insider.

Here’s where the two differ:

“As Shelley acknowledges, our interaction was not sexual in nature. It happened 16 years ago in a public setting when she was a top executive at ABC. I apologized to her then, and I meant it,” Cuomo said.

However, Ross doesn’t seem satisfied with Cuomo’s statement.

“I don’t acknowledge that there’s anything that was ‘our interaction.’ I was not a participant,” Ross told Insider. “I was groped. And so to say that I acknowledge interaction, no. That shows a lack of enlightenment.”

Ross has publicly stated that she isn’t seeking to have Cuomo ousted from CNN over the incident, however.

Local Rancher Has Major Doubts About Search for Brian Laundrie in Florida Reserve

“No buzzards, no body”.

Published

on

The most wanted man in America is said to be hiding out in a vast, protected wilderness near his home in Florida, and police have now spent well over a week scouring the land for evidence.

Brian Laundrie went missing just days before the body of his fiancée Gabby Petito was found in the Bridger-Teton National Forest, some 2,200 miles away.  Laundrie had returned home to Florida without Petito, refusing to speak to police about her sudden disappearance.

Police honed in on the Carlton Reserve, a 25,000+ acre wilderness near his family home where his parents claim he went hiking the last time that they saw him.

One local man with knowledge of the area now says it’s unlikely that Laundrie is still there…if he ever was.

Florida cattle rancher Alan McEwen has spent nearly every day of the last 30 years navigating the woods where Brian Laundrie is suspected of hiding and says it’s not conducive to habitation.

“There’s no surviving out here, I don’t know how to say it,” McEwen told Fox News Digital.

The weather has played a significant role in McEwen’s belief as well, after the Carlton Reserve received a heavy dose of rainfall.

“Unless he’s got a butt like a duck and can float, he’s not in there,” McEwen said as he gave Fox News Digital a tour of the submerged park in his swamp buggy.

Some have wondered if Laundrie perhaps fled into the swamp to harm himself, but McEwen finds that unlikely as well…and for a macabre reason.

“Anything dead you find in the woods, you’re gonna look up, you’re gonna see buzzards flying like crazy,” he said. “No buzzards, no body is my theory. And I haven’t seen any buzzards flying.”
