Attorney Jay Sekulow Closing Defense
Argument: “Danger, Danger, Danger” –
The Constitution is at Risk Here…

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 1/28/2020 6:33:48 PM

President Trump attorney, Jay Sekulow, outlines the closing statement from the impeachment defense team. Mr. Sekulow warns about the construction of the partisan impeachment and how the House process has run afoul of the constitution itself. Mr. Sekulow walks through the history of a U.S. Government that has targeted Donald J Trump since before he even took office (DOJ/FBI Crossfire Hurricane); then continued that targeting after he took office (DOJ/FBI Mueller Special Counsel); and now ultimately a sitting president finds himself remaining a target with this impeachment effort.

Since when have RINOs been concerned about the constitution? I fear regardless of how well Trumps team did, RiINOs willbe too darn stupid to understand the peril they face with their RINO positions of witnesses.

Hey Sekulow, what you are warning us about is not a danger, but a feature that will be celebrated by leftists and rinos. But, wasn't that the sole underpinning of 0bama's tenure? The destruction of the Constitution?

It was a masterful speech as a large part of the audience grew up with " Lost in Space". I hope Jimmy Mumy is still around to enjoy it.

Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY), chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, alleges that former White House National Security Advisor John Bolton hinted to him in September to look into the removal of former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch. In a Wednesday statement, Engel said Bolton called him on September 19, roughly one week after he was fired from his post, and inferred wrongdoing was involved in the ambassador’s ouster. “He and I spoke by telephone on September 23. On that call, Ambassador Bolton suggested to me — unprompted — that the committee look into the recall of Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch,”

U.S. President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser John Bolton changed his tune on how he felt about the commander-in-chief’s July 25 call with his Ukrainian counterpart after he was fired from his White House post. While Bolton claims he resigned in early September 2019, Trump said he fired him. On August 27, 2019, Bolton described Trump’s July 25 phone conversations with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) as “very warm and cordial calls” and acknowledged that corruption poses a significant problem for Ukraine. However, Bolton’s story changed after Trump allegedly fired him.

In a fair world—one with responsible media organizations that didn’t act as propagandists for the Democratic Party—the news that a secret government court admitted it authorized unlawful warrants to spy on an innocent American based on his political activity would be front-page news.(Snip) it’s necessary for Trump’s legal team to use this opportunity to remind Americans repeatedly how the former president, not the current one, abused his power in order to interfere in an election; and when that plot failed, the former president, not the current one, continued to abuse his power to sabotage the administration of a political foe he loathes to this day.

Joe Biden suggested on Tuesday that the Obamas would be appointed to high office if he were elected in 2020, telling voters the former first lady could be his running mate, while her husband was destined for the Supreme Court, provided he wanted the appointment. The former vice president made the promise during a campaign town hall in Iowa, where he was asked by a voter if he would consider appointing Obama to the Supreme Court. “Yeah, I would, but I don’t think he’d do it,” Biden said in response. “He’d be a great Supreme Court justice.” When the voters clarified that he had not stipulated which member

CLAIM: “GOP concedes Trump may have withheld aid for probes but says it’s not impeachable.” – CNN VERDICT: FALSE. The claim is not based on a single quote or piece of evidence and relies on distortions. CNN senior congressional correspondent Manu Raju published an article on Tuesday evening under the headline: “GOP Concedes Trump May Have Withheld Aid But Says It’s Not Impeachable.” The opening paragraph claimed (original link): A growing number of GOP senators are now acknowledging that President Donald Trump may have leveraged US military aid to Ukraine in exchange for an announcement of investigations that could help him politically — but they contend that even that conduct does not warrant

Fred Fleitz, a former deputy to John Bolton, the national security advisor President Trump fired in September 2019, over the weekend published an opinion piece explaining the dangers of his former boss’s anticipated tell-all book. “Given the importance of protecting a president’s confidential discussions with his senior advisers,” Fleitz wrote, “I strongly disagree with Bolton’s decision to release the book before the November presidential election and call on him to withdraw it from the publisher immediately.” Bolton is just the latest example of former advisors cravenly monetizing the confidential access to a president.

In this made-for-TV world, we are witnessing made-for-TV moments scripted for maximum viewing with minimal honor. With all the hype and hypocrisy, amid all the claims to honor, history, and the American way, six Republican U.S. Senators sitting in the middle of this fury hold all the cards in an impeachment trial that should never have happened. Conventional wisdom from the elites suggests these Senators may hold out or, worse hold their GOP colleagues back from dismissing this patently absurd display of justice. They couldn’t be more wrong. Meet the stentorian six:

Senate Republicans emerged from a closed-door caucus meeting on Tuesday voicing renewed confidence that they will bypass a nasty witness fight in the impeachment trial. “The consensus is that we’ve heard enough and it’s time to go to a final judgement,” Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) told reporters. Asked if the trial proceedings should go past Friday, Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.), another member of Senate GOP leadership, said it “shouldn’t.” “We’re kind of confident,” Thune added. The chamber is expected to vote Friday on whether to allow new witnesses or documents in President Trump's trial. If they skip witnesses, that will pave the way for a swift vote to acquit Trump.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Mitch McConnell has told Republican Senators that he does not have the votes to block witnesses: … at a meeting of all Republican senators late Tuesday, GOP leaders told their conference that they don’t currently have the votes to prevent witnesses from being called, people familiar with the matter said. (Snip)The House impeachment was in bad faith, and the Kavanaughing of the hearings also is bad faith.

Thanks to a 4-hour documentary about herself, which premiered to great Progressive buzz at the Sundance Film Festival, Hillary’s in the news again. More than that, she’s doing so at a time when Democrats are panicking about Bernie’s increasing lead in New Hampshire and the general pressure he’s putting on “mainstream” candidate Joe Biden.

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

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.

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.

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.
