New York Times columnist David Brooks can’t believe who has joined President Donald Trump’s impeachment legal defense team and thinks their careers will be negatively impacted. Brooks warned that Rep. Adam Schiff will “just walk all over” the prominent legal experts announced who will be part of laying out Trump’s defense in the Senate impeachment trial. The newest additions according to reports on Friday include Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz and former independent counsel in the Whitewater investigation, Ken Starr. [Video] Speaking Friday on “PBS NewsHour,” Brooks revealed he already considered Trump guilty

Their "conservative" columnist, David Brooks, just penned a column called "I Miss Barack Obama." This isn't too much of a surprise, of course, coming from the man who said that Obama would be a tremendous president because of the sharp crease in his pants.

When it comes to democrats, the best thing we’ve got going is that they only talk and listen to each other. Delusional.

If Schiff Head Head lies during his opening statement, and the president's team objects, how will Chief Judas John Roberts react? Will he rule on the objection properly? Or will he avoid the objection and keep a hands off approach to the process? Will Roberts allow surprise witnesses over objections? (a common trick by prosecutors) Will he disallow DJT witnesses? (Another common trick by slick lawyers). Will Roberts allow second and third hand hearsay? Will Roberts allow the fake whistle blower to be a witness? In general, how much leeway will Roberts give to the House managers? All of my points are important, because each of them could be used as a campaign commercial for the November elections. In a way, this is the insurance policy discussed by Page and her boyfriend. The parties are operating in uncharted waters, with the media steering the boat. I do hope Roberts does not have a grand mal epileptic seizure while presiding - stress is the enemy of an epileptic.

Based on what I've seen over the last several months, on a level playing field Schiff couldn't walk all over the paper boy. He absolutely must have all the rules stacked in his favor to make any impact at all. I hope this will not be another Soviet trial like the one in the House.

The Chief Justice's job is to call the morning to order then adjourn later in the day. Any ruling he might make can be overturned by a simple majority vote of the Senate. Normal trial rules, conducted under the direction of a judge, do not apply. This article is well worth reading and will put to rest any concerns about Robert's influence over the proceedings. At the conclusion of Clinton's trial, Rehnquist explained his job a doing, “nothing in particular and [doing] it very well.” https://www.scotusblog.com/2020/01/the-role-of-the-chief-justice-in-an-impeachment-trial/

I share the concern that some of you do regarding the role of Chief Justice Roberts. If pressure was put upon him the night before the decision on Obamacare was announced and he caved, how much pressure do you think it is going to take for him to make rulings favorable to the democrats? It is very disconcerting to know that someone who should be fair could possibly decide to tip the scales so to speak. Clearly, the President has put together a solid team but what good is that if they are undermined. It is disgraceful that we have come this far with no real evidence other than hearsay witnesses and biased law professors who came forward to tell us all how guilty the President is. The two articles the democrats have based this folly on do not reach the level of high crimes and misdemeanors. So why are we here, because evidently no force on earth is able to stop Nasty Nancy and her cabal when they decide to unseat a duly elected President by nullifying the votes of 63 million Americans. We are about to give the crazies what they want and it scares me to death. To trust the Republicans to stand firm with our President is asking a lot, but you go to impeachment with the group you’ve got. I just pray that those who are wobbly will understand the importance of their vote. The very Republic is at stake. Removing a President on these flimsy trumped up charges will take us to a place from which we will never return. God help them to make the right decision. Removing this President will embolden the rabid progressives and it will be the end of the rule of law and justice. God help us to get this right. We have had enough of their lawlessness and corruption to last a lifetime. Pray earnestly today and in the days to come. Divine intervention would be welcome. May the truth shine forth and the democrats be revealed for who they are. God bless the USA!

If I saw Adam Schiff on the street or in the market, I would steer a wide swath around him. There is something inhuman in his wide-staring, vacant eyes. Lies pour out of him without a tremor of conscience. If ever there was an argument for demon possession, it is Adam Schiff.

I think most people who are concerned about Roberts understand the rules under which he is supposed to operate in the trial but also know that he can overstep those rules to affect negatively against Trump and understand what that will that do to some of the weak willed Republicans. The press would latch onto Roberts position and he would be the greatest SCOTUS judge of all times. Remember, Roberts essentially rewrote Obamacare so that a tax was not a tax.

David Brooks is a clown. Adam Schiff is a clown. Schiff won't last 5 minutes with Trump's team. However, I do agree with #15. This is very troublesome and I'm concerned our political system will be changed forever. The Dems have managed to impeach this president with no evidence of a crime, completely unconstitutional. They managed the inquiry process in the most partisan and unconstitutional way possible. And yet, here we are. This trial should be shut down and the case dismissed. Otherwise, who knows how this could go. I don't have much confidence in several Republican senators. At all. I believe the Republicans will let the Dem managers get away with re-trying this case. Again, unconstitutional.

It's Brooks and it's the Slimes. But, I agree with #15 concerns about Roberts after Roberts hung America out to dry on Obamacare. But, as long as the McConnell and the pubbies do their jobs right, the outcome will be fine for us. Remember that Roberts does not have a vote when the vote to dismiss or acquit take place. Meanwhile, I would never underestimate Dershowitz and Ken Starr. Brooks gives Pencil Neck way too much credit.

Brooks has shown himself to be shallow and frivolous. Every day, as the "news" drifts across the airwaves of the MSM like the stench of rotting offal, it feels like we're stumbling across the stage of the theater of the absurd. We're approaching the edge of the abyss. The Dem/Left doesn't care: all along, for a hundred years, their goal has been the overthrow and destruction of our Republic.

As they say, small men always cast long shadows as the sun goes down on them and they soon find themselves in the dark. Adam Shiff-less has been playing sandlot ball with the manager of his team being his mother, the umpire is his brother, the other team is only allowed two strikes and one out per inning and the scorekeeper is on his payroll. The ball game he has been playing couldn't be more rigged in his favor. Now he's about to move out-of-town and into the majors. I expect him to get creamed. And don't worry about John Roberts. He's much calmer now. Many believe Obama threatened to give him problems on the possible improper adoption of his two kids from Ireland, Jack & Josie. The fear of losing his children supposedly made John toe the line. Both of his kids are 18 now and adults, and Trump would never allow them to be deported anyway. Mitch McConnell will actually run the Senate trial and can overrule Judge Roberts by 50/50 vote (Pence breaks the tie) so he only needs to corral 50 Senators to get his way and the other 3 upstarts can pound sand. I'm looking forward to Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Lindsey Graham, etc. cross-examining Shiff-for-brains.

Turns out that crease in his pants referred to something totally different and quite disgusting. Obama showed the press his maleness that day, and they were in raptures of ecstasy over it. It was like an inside joke they could all giggle over like school girls until the whole thing was exposed about a year after Obama left office.

He might have a point in that Schiff can get away with, as he has been doing for several years, screaming ‘ I have clear overwhelming evidence’ while the press will repeat the statement without ever asking for the evidence. Your grandchildren will be told that Trump was acquitted in spite of the ‘clear evidence’.

After reading Wikipedia about Brooks, I've come to the conclusion that from the very beginning of his career Brooks has been an opportunist and a smart mouth writer always looking for a headline and a higher paying job. For awhile he was considered a Conservative, but only to suit his purpose. In journalism, money screams at you loud and clear, but only if you're fake or a phony. He was never a true conservative. I'm thrilled he's come out of the closet and has declared himself Never Trumper. No big loss to the Right! We don't need his type. One of the benefits gained from having President Trump has been the sifting out of all the phonies...Brooks, Noonan, Rubin to name a few. Adios!

No one of any mental or political substance pays attention to what David Brooks says. His role at the NY Times is akin to Juan Williams' role on Fox. He's there simply to allow the Times to claim it allows equal time for multiple points of view. Post #13 is important here. An impeachment "trial" is nothing like a regular court civil or criminal trial. Roberts' role is more like master of ceremonies--introducing speakers and limiting their time--than a judge in a regular trial, who rules repeatedly on the admissibility of evidence. Schiff will have ample time to argue his point of view, laden with lies and irrelevant "evidence." His arguments may be somewhat persuasive; remember that he will have hired some able lawyers for his side as well. PDT's lawyers will be crafting some persuasive arguments and speeches against Schiff's arguments. In large measure, the arguments will be crafted to impress the American public--not Chief Justice Roberts, who has no vote, not the 100 senators, who already have already made their decisions. The real trick will be to argue so as to persuade Romney, Collins, and Murkowski that voting in favor of impeachment would embarrass them before their constituents.

Outside of the cozy confines of his basement star chamber, Schiff has as much power as the Wicked Witch of the West in Munchkinland. I fully expect the Senate GOP to drop a house on him and the rest of Queen Nancy's Flying Monkeys who make up the House Prosecution Team.

When this is all over, Schiff and Nadler, like Robert Mueller before them, will get thrown under the bus by their Democrat and media cheerleaders for failing once again to remove Donald Trump on ginned up, media hyped accusations based on hearsay and blatant political bias.

Rep. Bull Schiff, will lie, and not tell the whole story, since he knows it won't be good for Democrats. What I wonder, can he, as a lawyer, knowingly present information that is incorrect, or not factually true? Is he a lawyer presenting the case, or simply a member of the House? Believe all the other House managers are lawyers too, and does that put any of them in legal jeopardy?

Dear Mr. Brooks, Like, I mean, Alan Dershowitz has absolutely nothing to gain by getting involved with the Trump side in this matter. Nothing. In fact, because he has become involved, he makes himself an even bigger target as the deep state will ratchet up even more the accusations against him in the Epstein case. That said, David, like, I mean, this should be a major clue to you, Mr. Crease in His Pants, that the Democrats' corruption of the US Constitution is so grave and threatening to the Republic, that an 82 year old man, Democrat and uber successful lawyer, is willing to subject himself to scorn, abuse, lies, physical threats of violence, the abandonment by friends and relatives, all in order to protect and defend the Constitution and our beloved country. David, like I mean, this guy has more integrity in his pinky toenail than you could ever wish to have in a lifetime. What a disgrace you are. And by the way, like I mean where were you educated? And hey while we're on disgraceful and illiterate, just why do we continue to use taxpayer dollars to fund PBS?

Is this like Obama's Red Line. Adam Schiff is an enemy of the Republic whose party is guilty of multiple sedition's. These crimes could be so substantial that Barr may call for seating an unbiased and non-corruptible Military Tribunal. Think about it. We see all 3 branches plus the betrayal of the Press involved day after day attacking the Republic. Nancy is freaking out so bad and the Press is covering for her as she increases her panic attacks on Barr and Durham. Why would she attack them if she has the truth on her side. She knows how serious the crimes her and her party committed against the nation and Republic. How the heck do you have an election with a party that rejected the previous??????????? A party with women of no class and M F R filthy mouths. The squad epitomizes the corruption of our Universities. Robots and anti-Semites!

Brooks is a dishonest partisan thug running his mouth, and the media acts like he is a credible source. This is what we can expect from the upside down and bass ackwards world of leftist journalism. Trump impeachment has been a sham from the beginning. It only got through the House because Pelosi had the numbers. McConnell, in theory, has the numbers in the Senate to shut this monstrosity down, but its clear that not all Republicans are on the same page. We're going to see just how many Republicans side with the Democrats on impeachment. The proverbial ball is now in the Republican court, and impeachment cannot succeed with Republican support. Said it from the beginning: Watch the Republicans.

Someone on TV says something and a smaller and smaller number of Americans believe it. For the res to us the goofy David Brooks comments have the same amount of weight as a raving from Tom Arnold. Remember when that loser was going to 'expose' some nonsense about President Trump? Of course he had nothing, but no one on TV would hound him for the accusations. They just pretended it never happened and the maniac Arnold slid back into the has been world he rightly deserves where his boost is 'I used to be married to Roseann, who used to have a hit show.'

Impeachment Being Dragged Out? Not

Despite ongoing demands for new witness testimony during President Trump's impeachment trial, testimony House managers refused to compel before transmitting articles to the upper chamber earlier this month, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Graham is confident the entire process will be over by Friday. "I'm increasingly optimistic this ends Friday. I think the question is whether we should have additional testimony from witnesses that the House refused to call. Lets assume for a moment that John Bolton would say what the New York Times said he would say, 'The President told me to put a freeze on the aid because I want to look at the Bidens.' I'm paraphrasing.

CNN's Don Lemon giggled like a schoolgirl as panelists Rick Wilson and Wajahat Ali mocked President Trump's supporters as a bunch of illiterate hillbillies. Lemon, who is the defendant in a scandalous sexual assault case, was dishing about Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's dustup with an NPR reporter who reportedly could not find Ukraine on a map. "[Pompeo] also knows deep within his heart that Donald Trump couldn't find Ukraine on a map if you had the letter U and a picture of an actual physical crane next to it," Wilson said. "He knows that this is, you know, an administration defined by ignorance of the world.

The Republican National Committee (RNC) launched a new digital campaign ad and a fundraiser on Tuesday in response to CNN’s Don Lemon mocking Trump supporters during a segment on his show that went viral on Monday night. The segment, which was from late on Saturday night, went largely unnoticed until Monday night when a former CNN employee tweeted out the clip, which quickly got a response from President Donald Trump and other top figures. The segment featured Lemon, far-left op-ed writer Wajahat Ali, and anti-Trump establishment Republican Rick Wilson who mocked Trump supporters as being uneducated rednecks who could not read, spell, or use maps.

Record-shattering numbers of Republican women are running for office under President Donald Trump, saying that they believe their voices are not being represented and that they must stand up to Democratic socialism. The number of Republican women who have filed for 2020 “shatters all previous records,” National Republican Congressional Committee communications director Chris Pack told the Daily Caller News Foundation. Two hundred women, 164 minorities, and 214 veterans have filed to run as Republicans in 2020 House races – and Pack says they expect more to file in states where filing is still open. “Chairman Tom Emmer has placed a strong emphasis on recruiting a diverse slate of candidates

Whatever the protestations of John Bolton as to who is leaking what to whom, the fact remains that Bolton has written a ‘tell-all’ book about his experiences as President Trump’s National Security Advisor, with the intent to release the book in the year Trump is running for re-election. It’s not easy to engage in behavior that is both petty and despicable at the same time, but Bolton has done it. He has made himself into the poster child for an off-the-charts arrogant ruling class that an increasingly large portion of Americans (maybe 63 million and counting?) are absolutely seething about.

For three years, Democrats accused the president of having stolen the 2016 election. Now, they maintain, he is trying to steal the 2020 election. In reality, it was Hillary and members of the Obama administration (and probably Obama himself) who tried to steal the 2016 election and it is Pelosi, Schiff, and Nadler who are trying to steal 2020. Pelosi, Schiff, and Nadler are using the power of their offices to erase the 2016 election, steal the 2020 Presidential Election, and damage Republican senators in purple states enough to flip the upper chamber to Democratic Party control.

You’ve got to hand it to the Democrats -- they can hold their caucus together for the flimsiest of causes. The GOP, though, has all these RINOs who have to establish their independence; they’re willing to break party unity when it serves their own ambitions. Three senators – Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Susan Collins of Maine, and Mitt Romney of Utah – are rumored to be willing for witnesses to be called in the impeachment trial now underway in the Senate. Obviously, such a slowdown benefits the Democrats, who want the impeachment to headline news reports as long as possible.

Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) said on Tuesday during MSNBC’s impeachment coverage that “hypothetically,” President Donald Trump could be impeached for a “hateful, racist position” that he tweets about. Host Chuck Todd said, “I have to say, one of the logic things I don’t understand when I hear people making declarations about ‘this is not an impeachable offense.’ Correct me if I’m wrong, the impeachable offense is whatever a majority the House says it is, and if you get ousted, it’s whatever two-thirds of the Senate says?” Coons said, “Well, that’s subject to a lot of debate.” He continued, “It is a political process, Chuck.

White House Counsel Pat Cipollone concluded opening arguments in the president’s defense in the Senate impeachment trial on Tuesday afternoon by playing video clips of Democrats arguing against President Bill Clinton’s impeachment in 1998. Some of those Democrats — such as Reps. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) and Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) — are among the House managers urging the Senate to remove Trump from office. Others — such as then-Rep. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) — are now in the Senate themselves. Cipollone focused on excerpts from congressional speeches in which Democrats denounced the idea of a partisan impeachment, likening it to a “coup d’état,”

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has rejected a proposal by Republican Senators to subpoena the manuscript of former National Security Advisor John Bolton, insisting Bolton must appear as a witness. [Tweet] Democrats did not subpoena Bolton during the House impeachment inquiry after he said he would seek an answer from the courts as to whether the president’s constitutional privileges would allow him to testify. Bolton’s deputy, who was still subpoenas, sought an answer from the courts — but House Democrats canceled the subpoena before a federal court court ruled on the matter, and passed articles of impeachment regardless.

Retired Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz gave what may be the most persuasive case against impeaching President Donald Trump while in the well of the U.S. Senate on Monday evening. Speaking as a representative of Trump's defense team, the lifelong liberal Democrat urged senators to not "let the feelings about one man, strong as they may be, cause irreparable damage" to the fate of other presidents. "Passion and fears of the moment must not blind us," he pleaded. Giving a clinic on the history of impeachment in a matter-of-fact and understandable way,

PARK CITY, Utah — Since losing the 2016 election to Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton has released a memoir about that defeat, launched a political action committee and penned another book about “gutsy women” with her daughter, Chelsea. But Clinton’s most prominent return to the public eye has come at the Sundance Film Festival, where the former Secretary of State unveiled a candid four-hour documentary series, “Hillary.” Clinton is aware that some thought she would slink away after 2016. “Yes, they did, didn’t they?” Clinton said in an interview in Park City. “Well, that was never an option.” Nanette Burstein’s “Hillary,” which Hulu

On impeachment, Mitt Romney has thrown a spanner in the works. What looked like a speedy scrapping of the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump, premised on Democrats beclowning themselves, is now on hold. Romney says that John Bolton's "bombshell" about a supposed Ukrainian aid-for-investigation quid pro quo is so significant it merits calling Bolton as a witness in the Senate impeachment trial, just as Democrats have been calling for, though not enough to call him in at the House. According to the Associated Press: WASHINGTON (AP) — It’s Mitt Romney’s big moment, again. The 2012 Republican presidential nominee has for a year been a

CNN hit a new low this weekend mocking and laughing out loud at uneducated, redneck Trump supporters who can’t even read. This is what they think of Middle America — the 63 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump for president.Far-left op-ed writer Wajahat Ali, and Never-Trumper Rick Wilson joined Don Lemon in the vicious assault on Trump supporters. It could not have been more insulting. Don Lemon thought it was so funny he almost fell from his chair. The segment that aired on Saturday night came in response to reports that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo yelled at a left-wing NPR reporter last week.

I guess I should say something. For five years my office at AEI was right next to John Bolton. Lately I’ve been having fun with this photo suggesting I can do “hearsay” with the best of Adam Schiff’s witnesses (that is, “making stuff up”). I can’t say I got to know Bolton very well, but as early risers we were often the first people in the office before well before 7 am on many days, so I’d sometimes stop to chat over coffee and we’d joke about things. And he was helpful to me several times when I needed some inside information on how the UN’s climate change circus

Des Moines, Iowa—Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren has announced a plan to prevent, contain and treat infectious diseases as a new viral illness spreads in China. The Massachusetts senator on Tuesday unveiled a plan that includes fully funding the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s pandemic prevention and response programs. The agency has faced stiff budget cuts under President Donald Trump, including to emergency funds and global health programs that were established following West Africa’s Ebola epidemic in 2014. “Like so much else, Trump’s approach to keeping us safe from disease outbreaks is a mess,” Warren wrote in an online post announcing the plan.

The Democrat-led House is set next week to vote on legislation to override the 27 states that have given workers a right to work without being forced to join a union or to give it a cut of their paycheck. House Education and Labor Committee Chairman Bobby Scott, a Virginia Democrat, argued that such "right-to-work" laws are unfair to unions and the workers that back collective bargaining, necessitating his bill, the Protecting the Right to Organize Act. “Under current law, unions are required to negotiate on behalf of all employees, regardless if they belong to the union or not," Scott told the Washington Examiner.

If this were summer, the crowd that buzzed Tuesday around the Wildwood boardwalk — with provocative T-shirts and slogans, flashes of defiant patriotism, and generally elevated exuberance just to be there — might have simply blended in with the town’s usual Jersey Shore vibe.

Georgia Senate candidate Jon Ossoff (D.) told a crowd earlier this month that Democrats needed to defeat President Donald Trump's backers so badly that they wouldn't be able to show their faces in public. "We need to send a message this year," Ossoff said. "We need to send a message that if you indulge this kind of politics, you're not just going to get beat. You're going to get beaten so bad you can never run or show your face again in public, because we have had enough, absolutely enough of what we are getting from Donald Trump and his fellow travelers right now."
