The Senate impeachment trial begins today. There’s only this to say:
The Democrats are going to meet today to decide on impeaching President Trump, with a statement by House Speaker Pelosi to follow.
Impeachment. Not over the Russian collusion/obstruction fiasco but, this time, over a “whistleblower” complaint that is based upon hearsay. A complaint that nobody in Congress has even seen. A complaint that has already been determined by Department of Justice lawyers to not fall under the law concerning intelligence community whistleblowers, simply because the person who made the complaint is not complaining about anyone within the intelligence community and the person the complaint allegedly concerns is not under the purview of the intelligence community.
John Brennan and James Comey are finally turning on each other, as expected. Each blames the other for including in the infamous intelligence community report the unverified, Hillary-Clinton-paid-for “dossier” of Russian-supplied slander against now-President Donald J. Trump.
An excellent post at The Conservative Treehouse recalls to mind how many viewed the Cesar Sayoc “domestic terrorist bombing” affair as a potential false flag.
Attorney General William Barr sent his summary of the conclusions of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report to Congress this afternoon. Of note:
The Special Counsel’s investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in its efforts to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
Progressives, including the mainstream media, are apoplectic because President Trump rescinded former CIA director John Brennan’s top secret security clearance. The president is currently in the process of deciding whether or not other disgraced members of the Obama administration (James Clapper, James Comey, Susan Rice, Michael Hayden, Andrew McCabe, Bruce Ohr) deserve to have their clearances pulled as well. (Hell, yes!)
Progressives ridiculously cry out that removing top secret clearance from former Obama officials violates their First Amendment rights, although nobody is stopping any of them from speaking.
