WASHINGTON — The House Intelligence Committee has begun work on its report in the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump, Chairman Adam B. Schiff, D-Calif., said in an interview Friday. The committee, which on Thursday wrapped up public testimony with a dozen current and former administration officials, will continue working on its investigation while compiling the report, Schiff said in his Capitol Hill office. The report will signify a handoff in the impeachment inquiry from the Intelligence Committee to the House Judiciary Committee, which would write articles of impeachment. “We’re not foreclosing the possibility of additional depositions or hearings, but

Schiff has uncovered a new star witness he wants to introduce to the committee. She is a White House intern ready to testify that President Trump left the toilet seat up after he used the restroom.

To number 1, it isn't going to happen. Schiff is in a completely safe Democrat district. However, I would look forward to additional hearings with even less credible witnesses, extending well into next year, and televised 24/7 by every major media outlet to ratings approaching zero along an exponential decay graph.

It was reported yesterday that the GOP found a loophole Schitt forgot to close when he re-wrote the rules that allows the Republicans to call witnesses. The have demanded to do so. Wanna bet there’s no media coverage if it happens?

Schiff is making a name for himself - and its not a good one. He's likely to eventually be relegated to a label: For example Robert Bork is remembered for Borked, that is to be slandered out of existence. So how will we describe being Schiffed? Probably something along the lines of some slanderer successively destroying ther own reputation when they try to Bork someone.

This isn't really an "impeachment hearing", it's an unpaid, 24x7 Democrat advertising campaign, co-presented by the Democrats and the enemedia. And neither the Democrats nor the enemedia are going to stop it, valid or not. It's like a made-for-TV mini-series.

This whole scenario reminds me of hurricane Katrina. It’s wake revealed how rotten to the core everything is and was - long before the hurricane hit. These federal ‘coordinators’ and career paper pushers are our rulers. The Lois Lerners, Brennans and the McCabes. They have ruled over us for years.

I'm still not sure why Rep. Nadler's Judiciary committee was bypassed... Rep. Peter Rodino did a great and respectful job bach in the 70's-- catatonic Rep. Schitt only has carefully crafted HEARSAY BS which never establishes Truths and Fact. As a result, there is NO evidence for this charade to continue.

Right, OP. Bigger chair than all the others. Whoopdedoo… Just makes him look smaller. Rather like a marionette. Soros pulling strings? Schiff is running out of time. Any further depositions would probably be taken by Lawfare attorneys. If anything interesting turned up, he might do something with it. More fishing. By now he should know that what he has presented so far did not get off the ground.

Schiff knows the impeachment hearings must be extended at least one more day. The minority party is permitted to have a day to call forth their witnesses to testify. The best laid plans of ignorant democrats oft go astray. Schiff had better schedule a proctologist visit ahead of the Republicans day of questioning.

Re #11, I read somewhere that Nadler is apparently known for doing a bad job with hearings, so Pelosi gave it to Schiff. He and his committee can’d do much but ask questions. I believe it still has to go to Nadler & Co. at some point. May be wrong on that… This whole Pelosi-created mess scrambles one’s brain.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was released from the hospital Sunday, two days after she was admitted for chills and fever. "She is home and doing well," the court said in a statement. Ginsburg checked in to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore on Friday. "She was initially evaluated at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C. before being transferred to Johns Hopkins Hospital for further evaluation and treatment of any possible infection," the court said in an earlier statement, which noted that Ginsburg's symptoms abated after she received intravenous antibiotics and fluids.

At a town hall, Biden was asked who his vice presidential pick would be if he wins the Democratic nomination. "You. Are you available?" Biden joked to the questioner, before giving a serious answer. Biden didn't name anyone specifically but said there are a number of people who are qualified.

It is one poll in one state and therefore not a definitive reading of public opinion. But the latest survey from Marquette University’s law school of attitudes in Wisconsin highlights one of the challenges Democrats face as they move steadily toward impeaching President Trump. (Snip) The Marquette poll found 40 percent of registered voters favoring impeachment of Trump and his removal from office, compared with 44 percent in October. At the same time, 53 percent oppose impeachment and removal, compared with 51 percent the previous month. Statistically these are tiny-to-insignificant shifts, but the direction of the changes on this and

A Cambridge college has removed a 17th century painting from the wall of its dining hall after students complained it was putting them off their food. Hughes Hall reportedly received complaints from vegetarians students about The Fowl Market, which shows a collection of dead animals hanging from hooks. The painting, by Flemish artist Frans Snyders, was on long-term loan from the university’s Fitzwilliam Museum but has now been taken down. It has been replaced in the dining room by a work by Damian Hirst.A spokesman for the museum told the Daily Telegraph: “Some diners felt unable to eat because it

Wednesday's debate was a breakout moment for Pete Buttigieg among Democratic and independent voters. Microsoft News polls taken before and after the debate also found significantly weakened support for Joe Biden. Support for Buttigieg jumped 5 percentage points, placing him in a narrow lead. Biden's support fell 6 points. That leaves the race with two leaders with a virtual tie when accounting for the margin of error. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren were also tied. There was little change among Kamala Harris and other lower-ranked candidates. (Snip) Now, for a grain of salt These polls do not predict an outcome.

A new poll shows support for the impeachment of President Trump has declined since public hearings have started. The Emerson poll released Thursday found support for impeachment has dropped from 48% to 43% since October, while opposition to impeachment has risen from 44% to 45%. Independents are key in the shift, with 49% opposing impeachment and only 34% supporting impeachment. In October, 48% of independents supported impeachment and 39% opposed. The poll also showed Trump's approval rating rising to a net positive. Forty-eight percent approved of the president while 47% disapproved. His approval rating was only 43% a month ago.

Top officials in the US Navy threatened to resign or be fired should President Trump follow through with an order to keep disgraced Navy SEAL Edward Gallagher in the service, The New York Times reported. The threats from Navy Secretary Richard Spencer and Rear Adm. Collin Green, who leads the SEALs, left the Department of Defense scrambling for a compromise, the paper reported. Spencer says Gallagher should be judged by his peers. (Snip) Gallagher was convicted in July of illegally posing with the dead body of an ISIS fighter.

We have to start this conversation by underscoring the fact that impeachment is not legal, it is political. Its only Constitutional base is treason, bribery, or other hard crimes and misdemeanors.”

Impeachment Is Destroying Democrats 29 replies

The goal of the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and other Democratic Party leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives has been to use the impeachment inquiry to destroy President Donald Trump. They hope to impeach him, followed by conviction and removal from the U.S. Senate. Otherwise, they believe he will be so politically damaged that he will resign before the next election. Ironically, the exact opposite political result is occurring. The past two weeks, the nation was subjected to partisan impeachment hearings orchestrated by House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA). The process has been unfair to not only House Republicans but also to the target of their investigation, President Trump.

Three years after outsider Donald Trump blew up the political world with his implausible victory over the consummate insider, Hillary Clinton, many establishment Republicans still don’t get it. From their elite cocoon, they continue to indulge the hauteur that put off ordinary voters who had grown tired of a fossilized political class that serially ignored their interests, and seemed more concerned with their own insider perks and privilege, rather than in repairing the damage that decades of bipartisan progressive technocracy had inflicted on the Constitutional order.
