Dems Lie to Impeach

Nadler’s Dem majority takes 169 pages (Politico says 169 pages but the link is to a 658 page PDF) of “vague,” “hyperbolic” and “misleading” language WITHOUT pinpointing any specific crime to tell the gullible that President Trump committed “criminal bribery and wire fraud”. AND YET NOT ONE WITNESS in the Intel Committee farce or Judiciary Committee farce can pinpoint those crimes!

 

It’s all he said/she said, I heard someone heard, I dislike that policy manner and so on accumulated into 169 pages of Dem lies.

 

DEAR GOD! If this is the scenario for crimes, the GOP in Congress and the DOJ need to look at who needs to go jail in EIGHT YEARS of the Obama Administration, including big Barry and his Cabinet of crime bosses. Is that the can of worms the Dems want to open?????????

Judiciary Committee Impeachment Report Alleges Trump Committed ‘Multiple Crimes’ – Wire Fraud, Bribery – Taunts Prison Threat

The House Judiciary Committee released a 169-page report in the dead of the night Monday alleging President Trump committed criminal bribery and wire fraud.

 

The report will accompany the two very broad articles of impeachment that will be voted on this week, likely on Wednesday.

 

The report taunted President Trump with a prison threat and stated that the federal wire fraud statute imposes a 20 year prison sentence.

 

The Democrats allege that President Trump engaged in a months-long scheme to interfere in the 2020 election by soliciting foreign interference by withholding military aid from Ukraine unless Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky agreed to investigate the Biden crime family.

 

The committee argued that Trump’s solicitation of foreign interference is part of a pattern going back to 2016 where he “welcomed” help from the Russians — this of course is a complete lie. [bold text by this Blog Editor]

 

The panel’s report said Trump abused his power during the July 25 phone call to Zelensky by asking him to look into Joe Biden — of course Trump was exercising his Constitutional and Presidential duty to ferret out corruption and he has the power to conduct foreign policy how he sees fit.

 

The Democrats accused Trump of repeatedly dangling and withholding an Oval Office visit from Zelensky and stated that Trump’s request for Ukraine’s announcement of an investigation into Biden is considered a ‘bribe’ under federal law.

 

Ukraine received the military aid THREE weeks early and Zelensky did nothing to receive the aid — he never announced an investigation, so there was no bribe, no quid pro quo.

 

Politico reported:

 

President Donald Trump committed criminal bribery and wire fraud, the House Judiciary Committee alleges in a report that will accompany articles of impeachment this week.

 

Democrats argue that Trump crossed the threshold into criminal behavior with his posture toward Zelensky, writing in the report that his request for the announcement of politically motivated investigations constituted the solicitation of a bribe under federal law.

 

The committee also alleges that Trump violated the honest services wire fraud statute during the July 25 phone call, as well as during a separate phone call a day later with Gordon Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the European Union. Those “foreign wire communications” were done “in furtherance of an ongoing bribery scheme,” according to the report.

 

“Fundamentally, the president has deprived the American people of the honorable stewardship that the nation expects and demands of its chief executive,” the panel alleges, noting that the federal wire fraud statute imposes a 20-year imprisonment.

 

Ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee Doug Collins responded with an 18-page dissent, calling the Democrats’ allegations “vague,” “hyperbolic” and “misleading.”

 

“If President Nixon’s impeachment proceedings are the ‘gold standard’ for presidential impeachment inquiries, these proceedings, in stark contrast, will go down in history as the quintessential example of how such proceedings should not be conducted,” Collins wrote.

House panel votes to hold Barr in contempt, as Trump asserts executive privilege over Mueller files


It’s rich that the Dems on Nadler’s Committee cry President Trump is not above the law when the Special Persecutor could not find evidence that there was collusion/conspiracy with Russia pertaining to Russia working with the Trump campaign to win the 2016 Election.

 

AND YET these same Dems protected Obama and Crooked Hillary in frequent cases of obstruction of by Obama’s Administration preventing documents and/or mysteriously losing documents and electronic data by then majority Republicans AND Crooked Hillary’s very public destruction of subpoenaed evidence.

 

So when you hear Nadler and his fellow Dem ilk accuse President Trump and Attorney General Barr of being above the law – WHEN NO LAWS WERE BROKEN! – It is a demonstration of being involved in the Obama-cadre’s coup against the President. Sounds like treason to me.

House panel votes to hold Barr in contempt, as Trump asserts executive privilege over Mueller files

Nadler, Barr head towards contempt showdown

Reaction from national security analyst Bradley Moss and former deputy assistant attorney general John Yoo.

 

The House Judiciary Committee voted Wednesday to recommend holding Attorney General Bill Barr in contempt of Congress for defying a subpoena for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s unredacted Russia report and underlying documents, after President Trump asserted executive privilege in a bid to protect those files from release.

 

Both developments represented a major escalation in the already-tense fight between the two branches of government over access to information the Justice Department says cannot be legally released.

 

The committee’s 24-16 vote on contempt for Barr was along party lines and came after hours of debate. House leaders will now decide whether to take up the contempt citation on the House floor for a final vote. If approved, the measure would be referred to the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia — who could choose not to act. House Democrats could also pursue a lawsuit.

 

“We did not relish doing this, but we have no choice,” Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., said after the vote, adding, “We’ve talked for a long time about approaching a constitutional crisis. We are now in it.”

 

A Justice Department spokeswoman, in a statement, accused Nadler of “inappropriate political theatrics” instead of working out a deal over Barr’s testimony.

 

“Unfortunately, rather than allowing negotiations to continue, Chairman Nadler short-circuited these efforts by proceeding with a politically motivated and unnecessary contempt vote, which he refused to postpone to allow additional time to explore discussion and compromise,” spokeswoman Kerri Kupec said.

 

Earlier, Nadler said the president’s move to invoke executive privilege shows the administration does not respect congressional oversight.

 

IMPRISONING BILL BARR IS LEFT’S NEW RALLYING CRY: ‘HAVE HIM LOCKED UP’ 

 

“By invoking executive privilege on all of our materials that are subject to subpoena, the process has come to a screeching halt,” Nadler said. “The administration has announced loud and clear that it does not recognize Congress as a co-equal branch of government with independent constitutional oversight authority and it will continue to wage its campaign of obstruction.”

 

Georgia Rep. Doug Collins, the top Republican on the committee, fired back at committee Democrats and called Wednesday’s vote a “cynical, mean-spirited, counterproductive and irresponsible step.”

 

“Democrats are angry the special counsel’s report did not produce the material or conclusions they expected to pave their path to impeaching the president. I feel compelled to remind everyone the report found that, despite offers to do so, no one from the Trump campaign knowingly conspired with the Russian government,” Collins said. “… They are angry our nation’s chief law enforcement officer and his deputy had the audacity to decide the evidence didn’t support charges for obstructing an investigation into something the president didn’t do.”

 

The president’s decision to invoke privilege came after the Justice Department, late Tuesday night, requested that the House Judiciary Committee postpone the scheduled vote to hold Barr in contempt. The Justice Department warned that if the committee did not postpone, the attorney general would recommend that Trump claim executive privilege over the materials.

 

On Wednesday, the White House did just that.

 

“The Attorney General has been transparent and accommodating throughout this process, including by releasing the no-collusion, no-conspiracy, no-obstruction Mueller Report to the public and offering to testify before the Committee. These attempts to work with the Committee have been flatly rejected. They didn’t like the results of the report, and now they want a redo,” Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement on Wednesday. “Faced with Chairman Nadler’s blatant abuse of power, and at the Attorney General’s request, the President has no other option than to make a protective assertion of executive privilege.”

 

Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd sent a letter to Nadler on Wednesday morning saying the same.

 

“We are disappointed that you have rejected the Department of Justice’s request to delay the vote of the Committee on the Judiciary on a contempt finding against the Attorney General this morning,” Boyd wrote, adding that the committee has “terminated our ongoing negotiations and abandoned the accommodation process” related to the subpoena.

 

“Unfortunately, rather than allowing negotiations to continue, you scheduled an unnecessary contempt vote, which you refused to postpone to allow additional time for compromise,” Boyd wrote. “Accordingly, this is to advise you that the President has asserted executive privilege over the entirety of the subpoenaed materials. As I indicated in my letter to you last night, this protective assertion of executive privilege ensures the President’s ability to make a final decision whether to assert privilege following a full review of these materials.”

 

In a separate letter sent Tuesday, Boyd stressed that Barr already has offered a select group of congressional Democrats the opportunity to review a “minimally redacted” version of the report, “excluding only grand jury information,” but Nadler and Democrats have refused to “even review” the materials.

 

WHITE HOUSE BLOCKS MCGAHN FROM PRODUCING DOCUMENTS SUBPOENAED BY HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE

 

The vote to hold Barr in contempt escalates the standoff between the Justice Department and congressional Democrats over Mueller’s full report, and over Barr’s failure to appear for a scheduled hearing before the committee last week after disagreements over the format of the hearing. Democrats on the committee wanted to have their staff question Barr. The Justice Department wanted only members to do the questioning. Barr did not appear, and the committee held a meeting with an empty witness chair.

 

Democrats have blasted Barr for weeks over his handling of the special counsel’s report. Barr initially released a four-page summary of Mueller’s findings, announcing in late March that the special counsel found no evidence of collusion between members of the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 presidential election. Mueller did not come to a conclusion on whether the president obstructed justice, but Barr said the evidence was not sufficient to charge the president with such an offense.

 

While Democrats have criticized Barr for that swift conclusion, they have sought the completely unredacted version of the report in a bid to learn more about what information Mueller gathered regarding the obstruction probe. The report released publicly last month had redactions covering sensitive sources and methods, grand jury material, and other areas to protect the reputational interests of “peripheral players” in the investigation.

 

While Democrats have complained about the DOJ’s redactions in the publicly available report, however, Barr and his deputies have countered that they’ve made available to select members a version with minimal redactions — and Democrats have declined to look at it.

 

“Unfortunately, the Committee has responded to our accommodation efforts by escalating its unreasonable demands and scheduling a committee vote to recommend that the Attorney General be held in contempt of Congress,” Boyd wrote.

Breaking: Rep. Doug Collins Releases Nellie Ohr Testimony Transcript Before House Judiciary Committee — Contributing ‘Author’ of Phony Dossier

Breaking: Rep. Doug Collins Releases Nellie Ohr Testimony Transcript Before House Judiciary Committee — Contributing ‘Author’ of Phony Dossier

 

By Jim Hoft

March 28, 2019

The Gateway Pundit

 

Nellie and Bruce Ohr

 

In December 2017 the head of opposition research firm Fusion GPS admitted in a court filing that his firm paid Nellie Ohr, the wife of senior Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, to help dig up damaging information on then-candidate Donald Trump.

 

The connections between Nellie Ohr and the ‘Spygate’ scandal were hidden at a distance for months.

 

As noted previously at TGP, Nellie Ohr is a Communist sympathizer connected to Russia as well as a corrupt Never-Trumper.

 

Author Diana West at the American Spectator posted an article on Nellie Ohr last year.  Nellie Ohr is “the “dossier” spying scandal’s woman in the middle.”

 

To one side of Ohr, there is the Fusion GPS team, including fellow contractor Christopher Steele. To the other, there is husband Bruce Ohr, who, until his “dossier”-related demotion, was No. 4 man at the Department of Justice, and a key contact there for Steele.

 

What’s more revealing about Nellie Ohr is the men in her life are protecting her involvement in the Russia scandal:

 

Notably, the “dossier” men in her life have tried to shield Ohr from public scrutiny, even at professional risk. Her husband, as the Daily Caller News Foundation reports, failed to disclose his wife’s employment with Fusion GPS and seek the appropriate conflict-of-interest waiver, which may have been an important factor in his demotion from associate deputy attorney general late last year.

 

Under Senate and House questioning, Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson consistently failed to disclose Nellie Ohr’s existence as one of his firm’s paid Russian experts, let alone that he hired her for the red-hot DNC/Clinton campaign Trump-Russia project.

 

Even Christopher Steele may have tried to keep Nellie Ohr “under cover.” Steele, put forth as the “dossier” author ever since its January 2017 publication in BuzzFeed, does not appear to have let on to his many media and political contacts that he had “dossier”-assistance from at least two fellow Fusion GPS Russian experts, Nellie Ohr and Edward Baumgartner. Baumgartner, interestingly, was a Russian history major at Vassar in the 1990s when Nellie Ohr taught Russian history there.

 

It appears that the men in Nellie’s life did all they could to prevent Nellie Ohr from being outed for being involved in the dossier because she also has links to the CIA and therefore to John Brennan.

Now this…

 

New evidence suggests Nellie Ohr was working for the CIA and Fusion GPS when she passed on the junk Trump-Russia dossier and information on the Trump Children to the DOJ-FBI.

 

Via The Last Refuge – Conservative Treehouse:

 

 

The latest FOIA requests indicate Nellie Ohr was working for the DOJ in 2015-2016.

 

 

 

On Wednesday night during his interview with Sean Hannity – President Trump called Nellie Ohr the author of the phony dossier.

 

Nellie Ohr has deep involvement with the creation of this fraudulent document.

 

 

On Thursday Rep. Doug Collins released the Nellie Ohr testimony in front of the House Judiciary Committee.

Nail BO, H Clinton and other guilty democrats! I remember the Comey press conference on Clinton and I was excited as Comey was talking and leaning towards getting Clinton, then all of a sudden he dropped the call. It is now apparent Comey was a puppet for BO and many heads should roll. Clinton and others are corrupt and have a problem with the facts and the truth. Conservative Wisdom United.

Former FBI legal counsel Lisa Page testified to Congress that the Justice Department ordered the FBI not to charge former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with “gross negligence” by mishandling classified information.

 

Transcripts of Page’s closed-door testimony in July 2018 were released Tuesday by Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) on Tuesday, which included the following exchange with Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX):

 

RATCLIFFE: So let me if I can, I know I’m testing your memory. But when you say advice you got from the Department, you’re making it sound like it was the Department that told you: You’re not going to charge gross negligence because we’re the prosecutors and we’re telling you we’re not going to …

 

PAGE: That is correct.

 

RATFLIFFE: …bring a case based on that.

 

Ratcliffe highlighted the exchange on Twitter.

 

 

Page confirmed that the Department of Justice led by Attorney General Loretta Lynch had “multiple conversations” about charging Clinton with gross negligence but noted that it would be a rare decision.

 

“[T]hey did not feel they could sustain a charge,” she said, referring to the Department of Justice.

 

President Donald Trump reacted to the reports on Wednesday.

 

“The just revealed FBI Agent Lisa Page transcripts make the Obama Justice Department look exactly like it was, a broken and corrupt machine,” he wrote. “Hopefully, justice will finally be served. Much more to come!”
