Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, in a floor speech on Wednesday, said the Trump White House and its allies will "rush" to call the Democrat impeachment inquiry a "partisan with hunt no matter how serious the allegations." "But let me be clear," Schumer continued, "because I know accusations of partisanship are already being written. This inquiry was not taken up for partisan reasons. It does not prejudge an outcome." (Video) Schumer warned his Republican colleagues that it may fall to them to judge the president's actions, and he reminded them of their constitutional duty:

It's all a silly bluff and Trump cannot be bluffed. There has to be a vote on the floor before the House can start Impeachment proceedings.

Amazing! The first words out of his pie hole are lies. Is there ANYONE on G_d's green earth that believes that this ISNT partisan? Jave the democrats exhibited an ounce of bipartisanship in the past three years? It doesnt help your case when dem senators are out there claiming that Trump cant be beated in the election and tge onky way to prevent re-election is thru impeachment. If it wasnt partisan, an equal number of republicans would be in favor of impeachment.

California's far-left governor, Gavin Newsom, is out there with the best of them, loudly calling for the impeachment of President Trump. It's nothing new for him, given that he ran for governor in 2017 on this platform.Appearing last night on the late-night Daily Show, Newsom made no bones about it, according to the Hollywood Reporter: "There's no doubt he will be impeached." To that statement, the Daily Show crowd erupted with cheers. Newsom followed with, "The question is will he be removed from office, and that's a separate question that Mitch McConnell can answer."From his point of view, it makes sense, because even though he's

Contrary to suggestions by some, most Trump supporters are not automatons or blind supporters. What bothers them, and should bother others, about the latest Ukraine hysterias is the familiar monotony of this latest scripted psychodrama. The whistleblower admits to hearsay (“I was not a direct witness to most of the events described”). His term-paper report is laden with anonymously sourced rumors, e.g., “According to multiple White House officials I spoke with,” “I was told by White House officials,” “Based on my understanding,” “I learned from multiple officials,” “I do not know whether similar measures were taken,” “I do not know whether those officials spoke with or

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) said at her press briefing today that she is “very prayerful” about her move to go forward with an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump and in explaining her decision to do so quoted what the soon-to-be Roman dictator, Julius Caesar, said when he crossed the Rubicon on his way to seize Rome. A reporter asked Pelosi: “What message do you have to the White House regarding cooperation with the committee?”(Video) Pelosi said: “Speak truth. Speak truth. But know truth.

Wow! The MSNBC host of Deadline: White House, Nicolle Wallace, declared President Trump to be a liar on Wednesday (how original) and used that as an excuse to cut away from the televised press conference almost 24 hours after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi declared the House's formal attempt to impeach the President. Perhaps Trump's truth telling about Joe and Hunter Biden was too much for her to tolerate. In any event, it was a stunning act of anti-journalism.Here was Nicolle cutting away from the Trump press conference because she has passed judgement that he wasn't being truthful...or was it that she couldn't abide him telling painful truths?

I won’t say that impeachment is back in the news, because the removal of the President never left and has been a headline grabber since before Trump took the oath. (snip) For all of Pelosi’s supposed political acumen, her hand was forced by the progressive rabble-rousers. This makes for a dramatic coup de théâtre, but it’s still only that: theater. Pelosi lost face, yes. But the humiliation will be downplayed by her media backers, who treat statecraft like so many three-act plays. And we already know the coming ending. The Washington wisdom behind Trump’s impeachment makes sense until you venture three feet outside I-495.
