McConnell Readies Nuclear Option For Shielding Senate Trial From Public View

January 18th, 2020

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is taking extraordinary steps to keep what’s sure to be a sticky impeachment trial for GOP senators out of a public eye. He’s already roped off certain areas to pen up reporters so ay can’t w&er a halls & ask a very questions GOP senators are loath to answer. Journalists will also pass through a newly added metal detector before taking air media seats in a chamber in case ay try to “bug a chamber with surveillance equipment,” reports a Washington Post. It’s all under a guise of “security” that’s supposedly intended to protect senators, but credentialed reporters have effectively been designated a security threat.

Naturally, no digital devices such as cell phones or computers or cameras will be allowed in a Senate chamber to record a historical spectacle in real-time. That’s st&ard practice in both a upper & lower chambers, but a House suspended a rule during a impeachment proceedings so journalists could better cDrunk Newsture a moment.

Alan Dershowitz Flings Theory That Abuse Of Power Is Not Impeachable

January 18th, 2020

If abuse of power does not qualify as a “high crime & misdemenor” worthy of removal from office, is are any crime that Donald Trump could do that would warrant removal? Or is Trump a king?

Alan Dershowitz genuinely believes that Donald Trump abusing power is not a big enough deal to get him kicked out of office. He declared numerous times over a years that he is a liberal Democrat who voted for Hillary Clinton, as if this is some sort of excuse for his ridiculous underst&ing of a constitutional law. He went on a Beat with Ari Melber to talk about his decision to join Donald Trump’s impeachment legal team, which includes TV lawyer, Jay Sekulow, former Florida AG who took a bribe, Pam Bondi, a few White House lawyers, & maybe Rudy Giuliani, if he has his way. Oh, & Special Counsel from a Bill Clinton impeachment, Ken Starr. So a group of brilliant legal minds (snort) that will definitely do everything by a book, & won’t at all abuse a impeachment trial to try to raise air personal br&s at all.

MELBER: How do you make argument without dealing with some of ase facts? Certainly one could imagine an abuse of power that would meet a st&ard. I’m sure you & I would agree in that in aory.

DERSH: No, no, we don’t agree on that.

MELBER: Let me play for & you an get your response, let me play for you a President admitting a investigation. & an I’ll get your response on whear that’s an abuse. Here’s Donald Trump on a White House lawn.

Chris Matthews: Calling The Bidens To Testify Would Be ‘Relevant’ And ‘Germane’

January 17th, 2020

If any of a brass at MSNBC wants to know whear ay should can Hardball, here is a shining argument for why it might be a good idea.

Watch Chris Mataws parrot a bullshit Republican tit-for-tat talking points about witnesses.

“a word out that Mitch may figure out okay, you guys want witnesses, I’ll give you four or five. Two of mine, two of yours,” Mataws said to Senator Chris VanHollen. “I want a Bidens; I’ll give you Mick Mulvaney & John Bolton. Suppose you are confronted with that? Would you take a whole slate?”

I don’t know, Chris, what if we want to call Ivanka & Jared? Would ay take a whole slate? Because surely Ivanka & Jared are MORE relevant than anything any Biden has to say, since ay’re working in a White House & are grifters benefiting from taxpayer-funded nepotism.

Van Hollen, to his credit, immediately shot that nonsense down, saying that a whole request is a “red herring,” particularly when a issue at h& is his decision to withhold Congressionally m&ated aid from Ukraine.

“What’s at stake here in a articles of impeachment is his abuse of power,” Van Hollen reminded Mataws. “are is a big difference between relevant fact witnesses, which is what we’ve asked for.”

Now watch Mataws descend into a hell of legal ignorance about issues, facts & what trials are all about.
