Senate Impeachment Trial Could be Quagmire for Democrats and Joe Biden In Particular

No exit strategy.


Just as the Democrats did over the last several weeks in the House, Republicans in the Senate majority will have a chance to call their witnesses and dominate the process -- with condemnations of those who duck their subpoenas. Topping their list are the former vice president, his son, and Alexandra Chalupa, a former Democratic National Committee operative whom Republicans have accused of digging dirt on the 2016 Trump campaign with help from Ukrainian officials.

Chalupa has said she’s "on a mission" to testify and repudiate such accusations. But there's a reason Democrats didn’t put her in the hearing hot seat last month. She has publicly said that officials at the Ukrainian Embassy were "helpful" to her efforts to research the activities of Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort's Russia ties – even as she insisted the embassy was not trying to interfere in American politics.

Also worth exploring: the convicted domestic bomber she palled around Ukraine with.

They ought to call him, too.

...

Joe Biden on Wednesday said he would not testify in impeachment proceedings against President Trump as Republicans focus on the underlying cause for Trump's concerns about the Bidens' activities in Ukraine – primarily that Hunter Biden was paid millions to sit Burisma's board while his father served as the Obama administration’s point man on Ukraine. Trump's efforts to persuade that country's new president to investigate the matter is at the heart of the impeachment proceedings.

"No, I'm not going to let them take their eye off the ball," Biden told reporters on the campaign trail when asked if he would acquiesce to Republicans' calls for him to testify in an impeachment trial....

But even Democratic impeachment witnesses testified last month that Hunter Biden’s role at Burisma raised legitimate conflict-of-interest questions and that they were at a loss to explain why no one in the Obama administration put a stop to it.

Listen, Fat, you're gonna have to testify under oath.

All she has to do is hold a presser and state that she is voting against this sham impeachment and invite as many of her Dem colleagues as possible to join her. Make some comments about needing to get rid of Trump the "right way" at the ballot box. Speak some truth to power.

She'll pick up a minimum of 15 points and stands a good chance of riding all the way to the nomination. Her party hates her anyway, so fracture the thing, take the heat, and score major points.

I don't want this to happen. I think Tulsi is their strongest candidate. I can't fathom why she isn't doing it, though.

WTF does that even mean in the context of the actual question about testifying?

Biden's brain is slipping its timing belt so often now it's been reduced to just selecting from a list of random cliches for an answer.

"Mr Biden, what's your strategy for debating Trump next year?"

"Well, you know Roger you know what they say, just because the wind's from the north doesn't mean you have to feed your cat a biscuit."

177 Sounds like Chalupa was on the Dems dirty tricks squad who they turn to for plausible deniability when they want legally questionable stuff done.

There is enough corruption in DC that a thousand DOJs working for a thousand years could not charge everyone with every crime that's been committed.

I think the only way to have a relatively corruption free society may be to state that all government work must be done at the Capitol, but the Capitol must have a neutron bomb beneath it which goes off randomly on an average of every twenty years or so. That way, every incentive is towards the government not doing much. Meet for a day once a year and get out of town. But my bet is the power hungry wankers would still live there full time and just take their chances.

if so, then the trial ends in Trump being vindicated and the Democrats have a major failure to their own base to explain, and a pissed off electorate to face for trying.

WIN for Trump.

If the Republicans in the trial do well - and they can have non-Senators do the questioning and Trump can have his own counsel there as well - then they can expose more of the dirt on the Deep State and THEN vote it down, and have all the same political effects as above.

WIN WIN for Trump.

Republican Senators caring about judicial appointments and Republican Senators hating Trump are two entirely separate, unrelated, and very real things.

They hate Trump. They're not going to have the nerve to take him out, it's electoral suicide, but they certainly won't mind letting Dems have a couple months to hammer on the President, while they keep Dem Senators locked up in DC.

They may actually do some embarrassing things to Dems and Biden in the process, but nobody outside the base will hear about it. They score brownie points, it bolsters their prospects, hampers Dem campaigns and causes trouble for Trump. Win-win-win if you're a GOPe sleazebag.

None of their calculations involve helping Trump or defending us in DC. Never have, Never will.

The whole dirtying thing done by the FBI and IC communities on minor Trump officials might just be another routine job where they purposefully use blackmail of public officials to get what they want or to get rich.

For funnsies, remember when the National Reconnaissance Office built a brand new headquarters with no appropriation from Congress. The NRO failed to inform Congress that certain satellites never were launched and used the money instead for a palatial new headquarters with no appropriations or authorization of such by Congress.

There is also Brennan's documented spying on Senators in the SCIF during the middle of the Obama years and Acosta's remarks that Epstein was known as an intel asset in the 2000's to justify a slap on the wrist. And no, Epstein nor his banker, nor the butler killed themselves.

Real life is a bit more complex than simple binaries. The GOPe or otherwise is not a monolith, but a group of individuals with their own motives. They don't get their ideas from the same punch card.

McConnell is a senator who happens to be interested in getting good Judges Trump can approve of. So we use him for that. He is less interested in the wall, say so we don't try and use him for that. Trump knows that, and uses the tool for what it is good for.

I'm no expert on what drives other Senators, but I'm sure Trump does, or knows people who do and gets the job done.

Manafort and Stone were always sketchy, so live by the sword, die by the sword.

Flynn got a raw deal, but he's being made whole. I think he's going to get the last laugh. Didn't you see how he will be given his passport back and visit South Korea for a couple of weeks? Weird for a judge to let a guy do that who already pled guilty - unless the case is about to be dismissed.

There is so much BAD NEWS for the Dems out there. I do wonder if Trump is holding this back for the right moment.

The so called moderates already went to the chopping block by voting for HR 660.

They might as well just go ahead and vote to impeach. They will try to be moderate by not voting for all counts, but they will vote for abuse of power. They only need one count.

330 One of the clues is "Elizabeth Warren e.g (for example) The answer is three letters.

The puzzle is, obviously, misprinted.

The words "fake" and "liar" and "dumb" each contain 4 letters.

The words "fraud" and "idiot" and "bitch" each contain 5 letters.

And so on and so forth, &etc...

They should summarily dismiss the impeachment on day one. Just dump it in the trash.

I wish they'd stamp THIS IS A FUCKING JOKE on it and put it in the National Archive.

332 I get the idea that the gopE members of the Senate majority are tame mice.

But why even get into politics if you're going to be so weak willed so as to let the opposition party try to impeach the president of your party.

335 Judges actually run the country.

They decide on abortion, health care, guns, immigration, laws of war, everything.


Yep. How many states voted against gay marriage, then had some judge say, "Nope, that's against the state constitution." Even if the law was passed as a constitutional amendment.

I think that'd be a Point of Personal Privilege, but he'd probably say Point of Order. Or Oint of Porder.

For gods sake dont use 'nood' in connection with that post.

342 So, the Senate Republicans call the DNC operative as a witness, and as she is being sworn in, Adam Schiff runs into the Senate chambers and screams at the top of his lungs.......DROP THE CHALUPA!!!

That hacks me off, too. Just like Hillary during the 2016 election, nose in the air, rolling her eyes, cackling away, waving her majestic hand -- "That's all been litigated." And sho nuff, never mind the election, she did get away with murder.

Posted by: Blonde Morticia at December 06, 2019 07:05 PM (i3suB)

Oh FFS. Can we get Jim Jordan, Matt Gaetz, Mark Meadows and Doug Collins to come over and do this?
Posted by: J.J. Sefton at December 06, 2019 05:49 PM (zBaqJ)

You can see where this is going to go.

F Miss Lindsey in particular, if he doesn't have the balls to do this properly.

I dunno, the health fails, the bloat, the humiliations when she sticks her snoot out.

Not so sure she is getting away with anything.

Even California passed a Defense of Marriage Act.

347 It will be interesting to watch Private Citizen Joe Biden dodge subpoena servers on the campaign trail. Say, isn't Trump's SS guarding Quid Pro Joe? That will make it easy to serve the Contempt of Congress warrant.

Posted by: Boneless Pork Rectum (R-UT) at December 06, 2019 07:40 PM (yQpMk)

348 Joe Biden is going to tell the Chief Justice to stuff his subpoena? Maybe he could challenge him to a push-up contest.

No fan of Mitch, but his clearing the January Senate schedule is meant as a threat to Democrats. They are the ones headed to trial, not the President.

Unless they're truly suicidal, the House fails to impeach by one vote.

Posted by: The Gipper Lives at December 06, 2019 10:24 PM (Ndje9)

349 Given how Cocaine Mitch has pushed through one judicial appointment after another, I think that he would enjoy using the impeachment rules to screw the other side legally. That seems to be his wheelhouse. So the likely result would be every (D) secret exposed.

They should really, really just back off of it. But they won't, because they're true believers in a thought-control cult. Social Justice uber alles!

350 Are you REALLY stupid enough to think that Post Turtle would DARE let anyone do such a thing in the Senate???

He will instead put Mittens in charge.

Strange how comments like these get the wagging finger of morality from one mr "dildo" but when we optimistic folk get fed up and use profanity we are the assholes.

Ace.. I love this blog. Please dont let it go to shit

352 Biden under oath? What makes you think that will make him tell the truth?
