Washington Post Columnist: The Democrat Case for Impeachment Is Kind of a Huge Joke, Isn't It?

I was not expecting this from Jeff Bezos' Corporate Newsletter.

Ed Morrissey sums up the glaring internal contradiction of the Democrats' "case:" That the "case" is simultaneously "overwhelming" and beyond disputation, and also, this is precisely why Republican Senators must help the House actually do the investigation and establish the case in the first place.

And here we have the basic contradiction of the House Democratsí case for more witnesses. If it's "overwhelming" as is, then there is no need for more witnesses. If it's "uncontested," which it most certainly is not, then thereís no need for a trial. Schiff likes to throw these words around as though uttering them out loud turns them from argument into fact, but thatís not how argument works, outside of court and especially inside of court. The problem for Schiff is that the House impeachment consists entirely of argument, and entirely lacks direct evidence and direct testimony. That is why Democrats are so desperate to get a handful of Senate Republicans to do the work that Schiff and Jerrold Nadler refused to do, simply because the timing didnít suit their tastes.

Harry Olsen rips Adam Schiff for pretending that he's a prosecutor.

As he points out: Nothing you're doing is anything like the work of a prosecutor.

The House's articles have been analogized to an indictment, but indictments can only be brought if they are sanctioned by a neutral, disinterested party. A prosecutor must persuade either a judge or a grand jury that there is probable cause a defendant committed a crime to initiate a case. No serious person can call the House Democratic caucus a neutral, disinterested party.

Nor can a prosecutor obtain evidence under subpoena on their whim. Anyone with a subpoena to provide testimony or written evidence can challenge that in court, as many recipients of such subpoenas in investigations supervised by the office of former special counsel Robert S. Mueller III did. That is exactly what the president has tried to do in many instances with respect to subpoenas issued by committees controlled by House Democrats. But Schiff and his colleagues not only chose not to permit the judicial process to play out with respect to those subpoenas; they chose to call the presidentís attempt to avail himself of his rights "obstruction of Congress" and an impeachable offense itself. How Orwellian.

The list goes on. A defendant can file a motion to suppress any evidence obtained during an investigation that she believes was illegally obtained. That motion is heard by a disinterested party -- a federal judge -- and that judge's opinion can be appealed to an appellate court before the trial ever begins. Again, the House procedure denied the president that basic right by making the prosecutor, Schiff, the judge.

Good article.

I hope he didn't get himself Epsteined.

The Dems need 67 votes to convict.

If they flip two or three GOPers they can claim a "moral victory" insofar as they LOST.

However, with the Dems now calling all GOPers 'traitors' to their faces, I'm thinking that ship has already sailed. They are giving the squishes every reason to acquit.

89 >>Essentially, it's, "Trump thinks a Crowdstrike server is going to get on the stand and prove that Russia didn't interfere with the election."

>>Of course, that's not what it's about at all. It's about Hillary's deleted emails that Obama's DOJ seemed weirdly happy to lose.

99 Someone last night on the ONT mentioned that Schiff, whose thumb has married his asshole, was a former federal prosecutor. Sure enough, from wiki --

From 1987 to 1993, he was an Assistant United States Attorney in the Office of the United States Attorney for the Central District of California.[6] While in this position, Schiff came to public attention when he prosecuted the case against Richard Miller, a former FBI agent who was convicted of spying for the Soviet Union.[7] The first trial resulted in a hung jury; the second trial resulted in a conviction that was overturned on appeal.[8] Miller was convicted in a third trial.[9]

Sounds like he was up to schnenigans even back then.

The wikileaks dumps showed us that CIA hacking tools that were able to spoof Russian hacking techniques were stolen to destination unknown. Meaning anyone who had those tools could hack and leave a trace that looked exactly as if it came from Russia.

When the Zelensky administration took office they discovered that ALL the government servers in what is effectively the Ukrainian Situation Room were removed. They found a room of wall outlets and ethernet connections.

The explanation given was the servers were rented and needed to be returned to the company they came from. I shit you not.

It didn't matter. No matter how many times you point out to the true believers. It didn't matter. And then, when Mueller was a giant nothingburger, they lost their collective shit, again, predictably.

So it will be with impeachment. We told/showed them there was no there there to Schiff's demented story time hour. We told/showed them there would never be 67 votes. We told/showed them there was a huge risk that this would blow up in their faces, take down bribem, and possibly many others. They wouldn't hear of it.

Now they run around soothing their butthurt with cutesy little names like IMPOTUS, taunting that Trump won't be President forever. Well no shit.

181 Democrats obviously thought they could drag this out through the election cycle.

They forgot two things:

1. President Trump is an outsider and there is no political dirt to be had on President Trump. (The House Democrats really thought they could find something Mueller could not. How quaint that a bunch of incompetent losers think they could do better than the focused and sanctioned witch hunt of the Mueller group headed by people who are used to looking for dirt)

2. President Trump fights back, unlike the spineless GOPe.

It didn't matter. No matter how many times you point out to the true believers. It didn't matter. And then, when Mueller was a giant nothingburger, they lost their collective shit, again, predictably.

So it will be with impeachment. We told/showed them there was no there there to Schiff's demented story time hour. We told/showed them there would never be 67 votes. We told/showed them there was a huge risk that this would blow up in their faces, take down bribem, and possibly many others. They wouldn't hear of it.

Now they run around soothing their butthurt with cutesy little names like IMPOTUS, taunting that Trump won't be President forever. Well no shit.

They deserve every bit of disappointment, mental anguish, anxiety, sleeplessness, insomnia, and lost hope that comes from a Trump acquittal.

Harry And Meghan Already Find Snag In Canadian Living, Take Legal Action

Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle, duke and duchess of Sussex, have already stumbled upon a snag in Canadian living.

The exiting royals issued a cease and desist letter to British media outlets threatening legal action following Meghan and baby Archie being photographed in a public park in Canada, TMZ reported Tuesday.

In England, Harry and Meghan were protected from being photographed in public outside of official appearances, TMZ noted.

"In England, strict privacy laws protect even the Royals from being photographed in public when they're not making official appearances."

According to privacy law specialist David Elder, the couple could potentially bring a lawsuit forward under the under British Columbia's Privacy Act, the Times reported. However, Elder noted, "the legislation contains many exemptions intended for news media, as does Canada's constitution, and that Canadian courts have generally ruled that people in public places and public figures have little expectation of privacy."

US Citizens in China can report to their embassies for quarantine and observation before being repatriated, but otherwise it should probably be grounded.

I do think flights should be suspended from China to the US until we
learn what's going on. US Citizens in China can report to their
embassies for quarantine and observation before being repatriated, but
otherwise it should probably be grounded. If the Chinese are reacting at
this level at this time of year, something is fishy and we ought to
suspend most or all travel from China to the US until they care to
disclose what's going on.
