The Democrats Next Phase Of Impeachment Will Maybe Possibly Begin At Some Point

According to Democrats, President Donald Trump is a Very Bad Man who did Very Bad Things, and this is totally not about partisan politics. They say he needs to be removed to Save Our Democracy. And this is so important that they don’t really have a plan on how to proceed

This week: Democrats churn toward next phase of impeachment fight

The House is turning its focus toward the next phase of its high-profile impeachment fight, after formalizing procedures for the inquiry.

The House voted 232-196 last week, largely along party lines, on a resolution that establishes rules for open hearings and the questioning of witnesses by members and staff.

The public hearings are expected to happen as soon as this month. With the House out of town this week, and the week of Nov. 18, that gives them a narrow two week-window to hold hearings, absent a change to the schedule.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told Bloomberg that she didn’t know a timeframe for the overall investigation, but she expected public hearings this month.

“I would assume there would be public hearings in November,” she said.

House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) told ABC News that he expected public hearings “very, very soon.”

If this was So Darned Important, if it was about saving the nation, you’d think they would have a plan. They had to be pushed and prodded to even hold that vote on formalizing an impeachment inquiry, now they’re just farting around with some depositions, and will eventually get around to hearings. Which might sorta be open. They aren’t sure just how to proceed because this will expose this whole thing as a sham, a political witch hunt, one which began even before Trump was elected.

    Nicely put, Teach. The last thing Pelosi Galore wanted was a vote and the next to last thing she wanted was for this to drag out.

    The public hearings are expected to happen as soon as this month.

    but they won’t since the lawsuit protesting the whole sham has been stayed for 6 (count ’em, 6) weeks while both sides prepare their cases. Imagine the Pajama Boy campaign to talk about this over Thanksgiving and Christmas. Just what you want going into an election year.

    f this was So Darned Important, if it was about saving the nation, you’d think they would have a plan.

    That’s the problem when there’s no there there. The “whistleblower’s” testimony is only hearsay and he’s so mobbed up with the Demos, many of whom could not pass Go, go directly to Jail if the facts about which Demos did what in Ukraine, it’s just a weeeeeeee bit compromised.

    now they’re just farting around with some depositions, and will eventually get around to hearings.

    Wasn’t supposed to be this way since Adam Freisler wanted this all in secret, so he could tilt the thing until it looked like there was a there there.

    This is Pelosi Galore’s gamble that making the show trial public will swing the public to their side.

    Which only tells you the real numbers say people didn’t like the star chamber one damned bit.

    And having Freisler as the face of this is the cherry on the cake. Bug-eyed, pencil-necked Beria clone is not the guy you want on TV in 2020 America.

    Trust me.

    A few points from all around.

    Baghdadi Bunny is already touting last week’s polls and I have no doubt he’ll include Fox, which over sampled Demos 49 to 41.

    Atlantic sent one of their guys out to IA to see who’s talking about impeachment. Survey says, Nobody, not even hardcore Demos.

    In Syria, according to Debka, Russia has deactivated all its S-400 batteries in Syria. So much for the Fake News that President Trump gave Syria away to Putin.

    The Gray Lady tells us Nearly two decades after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, polls show that a majority of all veterans have grown disenchanted with the continuing wars. So much for Baghdadi Bunny hiding in the John.

    CA’s Willie Brown warns Demos
    If the goal was to damage President Trump by formalizing the impeachment inquiry, it’s Mission Unaccomplished for House Democrats. Come next year, Trump will have an impeachment victory and quite possibly a solid economy. The Democrats will have — what?

    And on the subject of who’s winning the trade war, The Chinese economy’s decline is so obvious now that it marks the end of the economic stimulus era.

    Finally, numbers from Trump’s rally in MS.

    16,432 voters identified

    ✅ 24% voted once or less in last 4 elections (12% in zero)

    ✅ 27% Democrat

    ✅ 20% Black (to quote Don, Jr, “If he’s a racist, he’s sure not very good at it”)

    Looks like Chlamydia is the next to toss in the towel, Biden doesn’t know who’s Preezy, Bernie’s ticker has had it, and Fauxcahontas has proved she doesn’t know much about jobs.

    A commenter crows that Dem candidates are dropping out. How many Dem candidates does he think will run for President in 2020? The prejudice has been one Dem and one Repub.

    Trump appointment, Ambassador Sondland, a Republican megadonor, revised his testimony today.

    *Sondland says “I now recall” a Sept. 1 meeting with top U.S. and Ukrainian officials in Warsaw, where he told an adviser to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that nearly $400 million in U.S. financial aid was contingent on Zelensky committing to investigations into the 2016 election and Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian energy company that employed the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, a leading 2020 presidential contender.

    “After a large meeting, I now recall speaking individually with Mr. Yermak, where I said that resumption of U.S. aid would likely not occur until Ukraine provided the public anti-corruption statement that we had been discussing for many weeks,” Sondland said, referring to the aide, Andriy Yermak.*

    I now recall. LOL. The penalty for lying to Congress must be scary.

    No Quid Pro Quo! I now recall that there was clear Quid Pro Quo. But it’s not impeachable!

      And then there were 8. Julian Castro just dropped (wasn’t even a loud flop).

      How many Dem candidates does he think will run for President in 2020?

      Alive or dead? For such a “dynamic, diverse” field, most will be gone before IA.

      I now recall. LOL. The penalty for lying to Congress must be scary.

      Kind of like what the meaning of is is. Getting nervous, are we? One more LOL up your ass.

      If the whole Burisma thing is investigated, Zippy and the Hildabeast are in big trouble, along with Gropin’ Joe.

      Hypocrite Hare is OK with second and fourth hand accounts, but somebody who recalls how all this started is unreliable.

      Oy!
