Same Schiff, Different Day: ‘Collusion’ Will Be Top Priority

Here we go again…*sigh*

Adam Schiff

In a scant few hours, the nation will be picking up and moving on from yet another ugly and somewhat embarrassing election season.

The 2018 midterms have been objectively huge.  One estimate from yesterday had over 31 million ballots having already been cast by early voters.  That number is enormous, with only 19 million or so having voted as early in the 2014 midterms, and only 41 million in the 2016 Presidential election.

For democrats, they are seeing this as a good sign, as their logical conclusion is that democratic youngsters are the ones taking early advantage of the opportunity, likely in order to beat the glut of “I voted” sticker posts on Facebook, ensuring themselves a hero’s share of the “likes” and theoretical internet points.

The democrats are banking on the youthful vigor of attention-seeking millennials, and that has a few of them counting their chickens before they hatch.

Take Adam Schiff for example.  (…please?)

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) told the Los Angeles Times Monday that the investigation into so-called “Russian collusion” with President Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign will be a top priority if Democrats win the midterm elections.

He vowed to go after Trump’s personal business interests: ““The president has sought to keep that off limits, but if that’s the leverage Russians pose that’s a real threat to our country,” Schiff said, as quoted by the Times.

Schiff, whom House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is said to be grooming to take her place, has been a ubiquitous presence on cable news as he has pushed the Russia collusion theory for two years.

In March 2017, Schiff insisted that there was “more than circumstantial” evidence to substantiate the claims against Trump — but despite his best efforts, and those of Special Counsel Robert Muller, no such evidence has emerged.

Once again, to reiterate what the President himself has said, this election is more important than ever, and the democrats may only have one thing in mind should they take the house and senate:  Impeachment.

With a ramping up of the Mueller investigation and the accusations of Russian collusion still flying, the left may simply be digging for the dirt they need to metaphorically bury the President, but that certainly won’t stop Adam Schiff from spouting off about it.

Save conservative media!

Watchdog Group Says Trump Broke The Law By Withholding Aid From Ukraine

Published

on

The U.S. government’s congressional watchdog has determined that President Trump and his administration are guilty of breaking the law by withholding hundreds of millions of dollars of military aid from Ukraine during the summer of 2019. The Government Accountability Office published a nine-page report on Thursday that concluded the Officer of Management and Budget violated the Impoundment Control Act when it refused to release $214 million set aside as aide to Ukraine. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “Faithful execution of the law does not permit the President to substitute his own policy priorities for those that Congress has enacted into law,” the independent legislative branch agency concluded. “The Office of Management and Budget withheld funds for a policy reason, which is not permitted under the Impoundment Control Act. The withholding was not a programmatic delay. Therefore, we conclude that the Office of Management and Budget violated the Impoundment Control Act.” The determination comes the same day that the impeachment trial against President Trump related to allegations of abuse of power in Ukraine is set to kick off in the Senate. “The Constitution grants the President no unilateral authority to withhold funds from obligation,” the Government Accountability Office said. “Instead, Congress has vested the President with strictly circumscribed authority to impound, or withhold, budget authority only in limited circumstances as expressly provided in the Impoundment Control Act.” How much this information will impact the impeachment trial remains to be seen, but it’s definitely not going to make matters any easier for President Trump going forward.

Republican Senator Attacks CNN Reporter; Calls Him A ‘Liberal Hack’

Published

on

Sen. Martha McSally proved in a recent spat with a CNN reporter that she is not the kind of individual you want to mess with. McSally was asked about recent developments that have been unfolding would make her change her mind about impeaching President Trump. To say the answer was a resounding no would be an understatement. McSally ripped into the reporter calling him a “liberal hack.” Someone’s been taking lessons on counterpunching from President Trump. Check out the details from The Washington Examiner: On Wednesday night, Rudy Giuliani’s Ukrainian associate Lev Parnas claimed that “Trump knew” about all of the shady efforts taking place in Ukraine, including the alleged stalking of U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch. Parnas said, “President Trump knew exactly what was going on. He was aware of all my movements. I wouldn’t do anything without the consent of Rudy Giuliani or the president.” On Thursday morning, CNN reporter Manu Raju tried to ask the Arizona Republican about the developments and how it could change her impeachment vote. He asked, “Senator McSally, should the Senate consider new evidence as part of the impeachment trial.” She responded, “Manu, you’re a liberal hack. I’m not talking to you.” Raju followed up, “You’re not going to comment.” McSally brushed him off and echoed her earlier retort of calling him a “liberal hack.” https://twitter.com/mkraju/status/1217822020848771074 McSally went on to double down on her claim about Manu being a liberal hack in a video posted to Twitter: https://twitter.com/SenMcSallyAZ/status/1217829609808547841 Well, she’s not wrong. Perhaps Manu is still in the first step of denial about the role he is playing in the modern media? Regardless, he certainly got served by McSally, extra crispy on both sides.
