Mueller Time? With Midterms Over, Expect Fireworks

With democrats taking the house, Mueller’s investigation could be front and center in the left’s attempts to impeach the President.

The grace period is over, at least according to a number of hopeful political observers on the left side of the aisle.

In an effort to remain “neutral” in the fact of the midterm elections, there has been a self-imposed moratorium within Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of possible Russian interference during the 2016 election.  The idea was to allow the American people to make their midterm choices without the lingering doubt of what could be in the offing for President Trump.

Now that we have moved past these turbulent contests, however, all bets are off.

More dramatic still, a Democratic House would have the ability to impeach Trump — even if it knew for sure that Republicans in the Senate would acquit Trump after a trial there.

That would raise the stakes considerably for whatever recommendation or report Mueller makes to Congress. Most Democrats played down the impeachment idea in the midterm campaign, judging (rightly or wrongly) that it would be more likely to turn out angry Republican voters than supportive Democratic ones.

That calculus could change with presidential elections still two years away. Impeachment would distract Trump from his agenda. It might weaken him to have to spend months or even years defending himself against detailed charges.

And, could Mueller actually impact attempts to derail the Trump presidency?

Mueller’s evidence would be at the center of any impeachment effort. His investigation, cleverly farmed out to the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, already got Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen to testify under oath in open court that the president directed him to commit an election law felony. That would be a significant piece of any impeachment effort.

Now, with democrats taking control of the house come January, Mueller’s timeline could be adjusted to make a blitzkrieg impeachment attempt in the New Year.

Even if Mueller doesn’t go straight for the jugular with the radical left immediately, there is little doubt that he’ll be rising on his laurels in the coming days.

Allen West Sees Issue of Sovereignty in Biden Border Bungle

He’s not wrong!

As soon as Joe Biden was announced as the next President of these United States, migrants began working their way toward the US in droves. Democrats have long been seen as a more lenient bunch when it comes to immigration, and the Biden administration was thought to be a golden window of opportunity for many who had felt otherwise during Donald Trump’s reign. But the impact of this perception of the federal government is having major ramifications at the state level, and local lawmakers are not happy about it. Lt. Col. Allen West praised Gov. Greg Abbott on “Fox & Friends,” Thursday, for recognizing the border crisis in Texas and discussing plans to build a wall. The Texas GOP chairman said that, along with border construction, an increased presence of National Guard troops is essential for blocking cartel activity and drugs from coming into the U.S. ALLEN WEST: “I’m glad that the governor has finally realized that we do have an incredible crisis at the border. It’s been about six months and there have been a lot of Texans that have been suffering under this scourge of illegal immigration coming across. But building a border wall is just part of what needs to happen. We need to have a full mobilization of our National Guard, Texas National Guard down along that border so that they can secure these infiltration routes and they can enter the crossings that we see coming from these cartels and the flow of drugs and persons as well.” And then. “I think one of the important things we have to do going forward is to look at the system that is allowing this illegal immigration to happen, especially the use of the cartels. But also we’ve got to understand the constitutional crisis of having a federal…

Lawmakers Stunned by DOD UFO Report, Begin Sounding Alarms

YIKES!

UFO

While the general public will likely need to wait a few more days to get the juicier details from the Pentagon’s forthcoming report on UFO’s, lawmakers are beginning to catch glimpses of portions of the massive tome…and what they’re finding is alarming to say the least. The mere fact that the US government has decided to share what they know, (at least in part), on this subject is worrisome enough, as it belies the fact that they can’t hide the truth anymore. But there is another angle to this as well, and several lawmakers are growing nervous. UFOS could pose a threat to US national security, lawmakers claimed, after they emerged from a highly classified meeting today about the upcoming Pentagon report. They described the briefing as “interesting” and said that there were “legitimate questions” about American safety, yet would not reveal further details. The reactions were stark, to say the least: Congressman Tim Burchett said: “Clearly, something’s going on that we can’t handle.” Rep Sean Patrick Maloney told the New York Post: “We take the issue of unexplained aerial phenomena seriously to the extent that we’re dealing with the safety and security of US military personnel or the national security interests of the United States, so we want to know what we’re dealing with. “I think it’s important to understand that there are legitimate questions involving the safety and security of our personnel, and in our operations and in our sensitive activities, and we all know that there’s [a] proliferation of technologies out there,” he added. “We need to understand the space a little bit better.” Committee chair Adam Schiff said that the briefing was “interesting” and claimed he learned “things that were certainly new to me.” He teased: “But I think I’m going to leave it at that.” The full, unclassified…
