Blumenthal: Mitch McConnell Is ‘Undermining
the Credibility’ of Impeachment Trial

Original Article

On Friday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Situation Room,” Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) coordinating with the White House about the upcoming Senate impeachment trial was “improper.” Blumenthal said, “It is improper. He said not only is he coordinating but taking his cues from the White House. He seems to be abandoning all pretense or semblance of objectivity and independence. It’s also unprecedented. In every one of the past proceedings, Republicans and Democrats have worked together. Especially in the Clinton impeachment proceeding, there was cooperation between Daschle and Lott, the majority and minority leaders,


There isn't flea's teardrops worth of "credibility" in this Schiffshow known as the shampeachment, which Danang Dick would know already if he had any credibility himself!!

Ironic that the Democrats who went rogue on the Constitution will now have to yield to a Republican dealing the deck if they vote for impeachment. And as an attack dog, they call on their favorite "war hero", stolen valor Blumenthal, who is totally void of honor and truth. The dirty Democrats have dealt the cards for three years, now they squeal like stuck pigs when McConnell is about to pick up the deck. The democrats are pond scum. That's the best that can be said of them.

Blumenthal: “I think he should change the tone and substance of his approach. Realistically he is more than just the foreman of the jury as some of our House colleagues characterized him." Uh, yeah. Because antone saying the Senate is the "jury" is wrong. 100% wrong. In 1999 Tom Harkin got upset that some kept saying the Senators had to be quiet because they were the jury. He insisted the Supreme Court weigh in. It did. Senators are JUDGES, NOT jury. As judges they should coordinate with both sides about witnesses and order of presentation and everything else the judge does behind the scenes. Don't let the Dems set this new narrative on our Senators. Call or write them to remind them: they sit as judges, not like a quiet little jury.

I think McConnell is the PERFECT person to handle the Demos and their idiotic march toward impeachment. He's the wonkiest wonk in the world, having been around forever and learned the backroom world of nudges and winks very well. He may not shine in personality but he excels in knowing how to best use all the bee ess political rules and regulations to our advantage --- as a weapon if he needs to. He dangled a very original and quite interesting acquittal idea out there and now even Trump says he's giving it some thought. He really doesn't give a flying you-know-what if the Demos accuse him of looking like a turtle or the Pubbies accuse him of Rhinoism. He has a great purpose to fulfill now and that is to set up roadblocks and walls and fences---and with his total understanding of political minutiae I think he'll do his jobt quite admirably. The Demos must be worried too if they've already sent out Blumenthal to make noise about "fairness."

Start listening to them parrot the current day’s talking points and worthless cliches. Last night I heard they are resurrecting the “R” word: Recuse/Recusal. They want Mitch to recuse himself from presiding over the Senate. I hope November blows them to bits. (Wish the election would take some of the most low-life squatters (Sheila Two Names, Hank Guam Johnson, and James Brown Waters and put them in the pasture somewhere.)

When the Senate is handed such a Russian type communist scam like this it doesn't deserve and gentle structure or acknowledgement. This is total rat crap McConnell is dealing with and deserves what he hands to Danang Rice Patty Blummy. In all fairness when Schiff enter the capitol basement the Republicans should have bowed out and the doors locked on the scam and Schiff drummed out of Washington and a warning to Nadler that if he acted the same it will happen to him. This is not a functioning government and the leaders in both houses better get a handle on it before WTP have to step in.

"In every one of the past proceedings, Republicans and Democrats have worked together." Was Blumenthal seated or holding on to something stationary when he said this? The spin is so profound it could power the turning of the earth on its axis for months all by itself. The 'together' in that was close enough to being strictly bipartisan to call it partisan within the statistical margin of error: The Left's idea of bipartisanship is a one-way street: for some on the Right to side with them. And that is all. I'll have to sit to keep from getting dizzy if any in the MSM actually give the numbers of that 'together' -- all of 'em are going to echo the 'working together' mantra without detail, misleading their audience in the most extreme way.

A brazen porch pirate left a thank you note after stealing a Christmas gift in Minnesota — even signing it from “the new owner of your package,” according to a report. “So just a quick little thank you for leaving me the opportunity of stealing your package,” read the note left on shocked victim Hilary Von Smith’s doorstep in St. Paul, according to CBS Minnesota. “Very nice of you. Thank You,” read the note left where a package with a gift for Smith’s box should have been waiting. Smith told the station that she was “angry and confused and quite flabbergasted” by the note, which on Facebook she branded a “d—head move.”

Sen. Chuck Schumer wants acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney and ex-national security adviser John Bolton to testify in President Trump’s expected impeachment trial. In a letter to Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Sunday, Schumer proposed having Mulvaney and Bolton subpoenaed, along with a Mulvaney adviser, Robert Blair, and a budget official, Michael Duffey. The New York lawmaker said the proposed witnesses have “direct knowledge of Administration decisions” related to the charges against Trump. He said he would be open to hearing from additional witnesses, and proposed issuing subpoenas for documents from the administration. McConnell and other top Republicans have suggested a shorter trial without witnesses.

Two Chinese diplomats have been secretly kicked out of the US after driving onto a sensitive military base in Virginia — the first such expulsions in more than 30 years, according to a report Sunday. The Chinese Embassy officials were stopped in September at a base in Norfolk that is home to Special Operations forces — after they were chased by military personnel, according to The New York Times. At least one is believed to be an intelligence officer operating under diplomatic cover, The Times said, citing six people with knowledge of the expulsions. The officials had been with their wives when they drove up to a checkpoint at the base,

A Missouri church did its best to honor the historic Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris by creating a seven-foot-tall gingerbread replica of the church.

The confectionery delight measures seven feet tall at its highest point, eight feet long, and four feet wide. Lisa Stiffler, one of the creators behind the masterpiece, says the work is a “feel-good project.”
