to the presidency,' Graham says

Original Article

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said the Trump impeachment inquiry, as constructed, is a threat to the presidency and should not be legitimized. Graham told "Hannity" on Tuesday the allegation President Trump engaged in a quid pro quo with Ukrainian officials is also not true. "I think it would be a danger to the presidency in the future for us to legitimize what's going on in the House," he said. "There's no civil proceeding in America -- no criminal proceeding in America -- that denies a person to tell their side of the story by calling witnesses except in the House."

It's a threat to democracy, Senator. You're a little late to the party.

Of course Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) took his seat Wednesday morning, at the opening of the public impeachment hearings on Capitol Hill, wearing nothing but his shirtsleeves. No suit jacket. That’s how Jordan dresses. It’s his power move. His sartorial chest thump. All the other members of the House Intelligence Committee turned up in suits and ties or other business attire. But not Jordan. Everyone else was willing to offer at least a symbolic nod to decorous formality, to that old-fashioned notion of civility. Jordan announced himself as the man who was itching to rumble. He was the guy who came not to do

Russian-Collusion Probe

For more than two years we endured the horrible evil of the Mueller probe. The Hillary Clinton campaign had funneled $5.6 million to the Perkins Coie law firm, and they retained the services of Fusion GPS, which then hired Christopher Steele to compile a dossier on Donald Trump, the GOP candidate. Steele produced 35 pages of undocumented memos. He provided the “dossier” to Fusion, and they to the partner at Perkins Coie. Meanwhile, from within a corroded Deep State segment within the FBI, other falsifications bubbled up, all leading to allegations that the Trump campaign had conspired with “the Russians” to defeat Hillary and to win the 2016 presidential election.
The Democrats bungled the first day

If Democrats think they advanced their case for impeachment with the first day of hearings into the Ukraine matter, they are deluding themselves. The proceedings were confusing, not clarifying. Speaking as someone who has followed this matter in granular detail, I found it extremely difficult to tease out the set of undeniable facts that would prove Donald Trump did something so appalling he should be the first president in history to be removed from ­office and only the third to be impeached. And I ­assure you, I am willing to be convinced.

Hillary Clinton has explained her reasoning for omitting Margaret Thatcher from new book about “gutsy” women. During an appearance on BBC Radio 5 Live to discuss the former secretary of state’s book, The Book of Gusty Women: Favourite Stories of Courage and Resilience, host Emma Barnett questioned why the first female prime minister of the UK was not included. “Surely she comes to mind with gutsy women, even if you didn’t like her?” Barnett asked Clinton. In response to the inquiry, Clinton, who lost the election that would have made her the first female president of the United States in 2016,

The dictionary defines a conjurer as someone who “practices magic arts” and “performs feats of sleight of hand and illusion.” Someone like Adam Schiff. The California Democrat takes his magic act public Wednesday as the impeachment hearings burst out of a Capitol Hill dungeon and onto television. Donald Trump’s presidency and the 2020 election likely hang on whether Schiff’s sleight of hand can survive the bright lights of public exposure and cross-examination.

Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer reacted Tuesday to being voted off ABC's "Dancing with the Stars," saying it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience and thanking his fans for their support. Spicer told "Tucker Carlson Tonight" that earning a spot in the quarterfinals before leaving the show was farther than he originally thought he would go in the competition. "I went into this thinking one, two weeks maybe -- I'm not really good at this. But, I'll have fun, I'll learn something," he said. "I really really enjoyed this -- It exceeded my expectations."

There’s nothing like seeing #PeteForPresident trending in fourth place nationwide on Twitter to remind you Pete Buttigieg is still very much in this presidential race. In the crowded field of Democratic contenders for the White House in 2020, Buttigieg is near the top, polling behind only Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders. According to RealClearPolitics’ latest aggregate of polls, in the early primary state of Iowa, Buttigieg trails only Warren, holding 17.5 percent support — and for good reason. Buttigieg’s resume glows with accolades and qualifications. He is a Harvard University graduate, a military veteran, and a Rhodes scholar, and each time

She’s at it again. Hillary Clinton spoke during an event in London Sunday to promote her book “The Book of Gutsy Women” and she blamed misogyny as the reason for her defeat in the 2016 election. Stop me if you’ve heard it all before. I give her this – it is impressive that Hillary Clinton can still draw a crowd to listen to her complain about losing her shot at the presidency. She’s been on this pity tour since November 2016 and she’s still using the same material. She’s on social media, she’s doing book tours when she (or a ghostwriter)

The Supreme Court on Tuesday is set to take up the Trump administration’s plan to end protections that shield about 660,000 immigrants from deportation, and legal experts say all eyes will be on the likely tie-breaker Chief Justice John Roberts.Created under an Obama-era executive order, DACA gives some undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children the chance to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and become eligible for a work permit. Legal experts have looked back on Roberts’ June vote that blocked a citizenship question from appearing on the 2020 census.

By most everyone’s judgment, the Senate will not vote to remove President Donald Trump from office if the House impeaches him. But what if senators could vote on impeachment by secret ballot? If they didn’t have to face backlash from constituents or the media or the president himself, who knows how many Republican senators would vote to remove? A secret impeachment ballot might sound crazy, but it’s actually quite possible.(Snip) Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said he will immediately move to hold a trial to adjudicate the articles of impeachment if and when the Senate receives them from the House of Representatives.

In what appears to be one of the most remarkable examples of irony in left-wing “progress,” the LGBT left is celebrating the American Psychological Association’s style guide adopting “they/them” as the official pronoun designation for nonbinary people. LGBTQ Nation tweeted, “With this move, the APA is recognizing the existence of nonbinary people and inviting others to understand them better.” This change follows the highly publicized revelation of British singer Sam Smith changing his personal pronouns to “they” and “them” and stating, “I hope you can see me like I see myself now.”

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was absent from oral arguments before the high court Wednesday morning due to an illness. The court said Ginsburg, 86, remained home because of a stomach bug. While not having the opportunity to question attorneys during the arguments, she will be involved in deciding the cases. "Justice Ginsburg is unable to be present today. She is indisposed due to illness, but she will participate in the consideration and decision of the cases on the basis of the briefs and the transcripts or recordings of the oral arguments," Chief Justice John Roberts said from the bench.

There’s no doubt Kanye West has found religion. Listen to the musically arresting “Jesus is King,” and you’ll hear a powerful, positive case for a personal relationship with G-d. But will secular Americans heed his call? Considering that we’re living in historically peaceful and prosperous times, it’s notable how misery stalks many Americans like a shadow. Countless government programs have tried to fix what ails us, at least since the Great Society got going, and it never quite works. That’s why I’m hoping Kanye’s music will inspire more Americans to join his religious journey.

On Wednesday, the curtain rises on the House’s impeachment show, featuring State Department career diplomats William Taylor Jr. and George Kent as the first witnesses. Mainstream media claim Taylor and Kent have “damning evidence” that President Trump delayed military aid to the Kiev government in a quid pro quo to pressure the Ukrainian president to dig up dirt on the Bidens.Don’t believe it. Kent and Taylor have no evidence against Trump — only a false rumor spread during a farcical game of telephone on Sept. 7.
