Hakeem Jeffries Says Steele Dossier Doesn’t
Count As Foreign Interference Because
It Was ‘Purchased’

Democratic Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, one of the House impeachment managers, argued Thursday that Democrats’ hiring of a former British spy to collect dirt from Russian sources about the Trump campaign does not constitute foreign interference in the 2016 presidential election.The New York congressman’s argument was based on the puzzling logic that Democrats paid for the information from the retired spy, Christopher Steele, rather than simply obtaining it.“The analogy is not applicable to the present situation

Then congressman Jeffries would be wise to look carefully at the campaign finance laws that say a campaign cannot give or receive any money or thing of value to or from a foreigner. I really don’t think hiring a law firm to launder the transactions gets you clear. Maybe he’ll start a big inquiry. Or not.

Jeffries wants to be Speaker, according to Politico and elsewhere. I guess he figures Pelosi has set the bar on dumb so low he might sneak in, but I'm hoping the Speaker will be Republican for the foreseeable future.

That is one of the most stupid statements that any of the house managers has uttered, and that is saying quite a bit. The paid-for opposition research is illegal under campaign finance laws and it is even worse that the "research" was then used by the intelligence/investigative apparatus of the US Government as an excuse to spy on their political opposition candidate and campaign.

They aren't that good at being bad because they have been deprived of the learning that comes from oversight and accountability. Conservatives are used to every little thing they say and do being picked over by the media like a buzzard on roadkill. Funny how everything they hang their little propeller beanies on proves to be false in spectacular fashion and they carry on as though their credibility is rock solid.

I think this might be cover for the Carter Page lawsuits. The Marxists are going to argue that any American can be spied upon if it's paid for by other Americans and done for opposition research. A Chicago judge will probably agree. Remember, Carter Page MIGHT be able to enforce discovery. If he does, ALL the deep state Marxist illegal activity will be found out and revealed. Now, the ONLY ones who will reveal the truth about it sell sheets, pillows and strawberries because the Marxist media will NEVER reveal the truth about it and the GOP will do their fake bravery dance with Lindsey as the lead ballerina. The Marxists have to obfuscate their crimes with more lies and more made up legal theories that they know their owned Chicago judge will sustain and Carter will have to appeal all the way to the Supremes. IF, and it's probably NOT going to happen but IF the law is followed correctly in Carter Page's lawsuits, there are literally billions of dollars at stake if he wins, possible real indictments that Barr and Durham are NOT going to issue (because they ARE deep state as well), political careers and political crimes totally exposed, and HUGE tort claims against the federal government. His lawsuit is the ONLY thing that will bring down the deep state. You're dreaming if you think Barr and Durham are going to indict the criminals.

Well, one morning I woke up and there was a dossier attached to a 50 dollar bill. I needed money for breakfast and a taxi so I took it. Did I do something wrong? ''To him who needs from him who has.'' Furthermore, from the Democrats' point of view, if a Hussein can be president, then a Hakeem can be a speaker. They will stop just shy of letting an ancient red flag waving Communist take them over.

Now let's get this right . . . To use Jeffries' logic, Team Trump could PAY Russians to generate fake news on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter. That's fine and dandy. But just asking another head of state to look into corruption involving your own citizens . . . that's treasonous. WHAT?! Dude be stupid.

That is some impressive stupid right there by Hakeem. Did he practice for that one in front of his office mirror before saying it in session? Pelosi sure knows how to pick them doesn't she? You guys provided some much needed humor today with the comments and I thank you for it. Jeffries would be the worst possible choice from a selection of bad choices by democrats for Speaker. I would think that if they ever got the chance to do so, somebody like Steny Hoyer would be a more responsible choice. But then, we the voters are gonna try our best to make sure that the democrats don't get that chance again for quite awhile. Pelosi did indeed set the bar for dumb on low, but one thing I have observed about her, is that politically in the House, she has always been a little more astute before the Trump presidency. Now her arrogance has allowed the dumb in her to run amok to the detriment of the democrat party.

The dimocrats were in a tough position. They needed at least two blacks as managers. And there two - Hakeem not the dream, and frumpy Valerie Demings, a former police chief, were the best they could do. Who else could they have selected? Al Green, a hideous creature, Jim Clyburn, the shakedown artist, Doc Hastings, an impeached and removed federal judge, Barbara Lee, a marxist, Hank Johnson, who believes islands tip over, Sheila Jackson Lee, who believes we landed men on Mars, each of them would have been a bigger embarrassment, but the biggest joke of all would have been Maxine Waters.

In essence President Trump obviously did pay and probably is still paying his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani to look into the obvious Biden Family involved official corrupt activities in Ukraine, that the Democrats are claiming was OK since Joe Biden was working towards official US and Obama Administration goals at the time in Ukraine. A low corrupt country receiving US foreign aid money that could have been “laundered” and ended up in the pockets of corrupt participants, both US persons and foreigners. For looking into that suspected official corruption the Democrats are trying to impeach and remove Trump from office. So that kind of turns Hakeem’s logic on its head and makes him look like a joke to any street smart person outside the DC beltway who has been paying attention. There are reports that some leftist Democrats are touting Hakeem to be the next Democrat Speaker of the House!

I feel sorry for Hakeem. He seems to be a relatively gentle, non-beligerent person, unlike most dem leaders or race hustlers like Obama and Sharpton. He's being used by the dems as a token and doesn't realize it. Because of his race, he has risen to a level of responsibility that exceeds his capacity to function credibly. I've heard him commenting on FOX. He comes across as completely scripted, as if he has been studiously prepped for every appearance with strict talking points. He's like a robot with about a dozen scripts; when he is asked to speak or opine on any topic, his mind reaches in and retrieves one of the scripts and he repeats it, whether or not the script responds to the question. I feel sorry for him.

Hakeen Jeffires is as racialist as his uncle Leonard. Hakeem surely believes it is time for a black Speaker. Leonard Jeffries Jr. (born January 19, 1937) is a former professor of Black Studies at the City College of New York, part of the City University of New York. He was born and raised in Newark, New Jersey. Known for his Pan-African Afrocentrist views that the role of African people in history and the accomplishments of African Americans are far more important than commonly held, Jeffries has urged that public school syllabi be made less Euro-centric.[2][3] His claims that Jewish businessmen financed the Atlantic slave trade and used the movie industry to hurt black people, and that whites are "ice people" while Africans are "sun people," received national publicity in the early 1990s. Jeffries was discharged from his position as chairman of the Black Studies Department at CUNY, leading to a lengthy legal battle[4][5][6] ending in the courts supporting the college's right to remove him from the position due to his incendiary remarks.[7] He should never get near the Speaker’s gavel...

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and businessman Tom Steyer spent a combined $340 million in the last quarter of 2019, far outpacing the amount spent by their rivals in the Democratic presidential race. The two billionaire candidates competing in the crowded Democratic primary also gave their campaigns a combined $355 million in the same period, according to Federal Election Commission data released on Friday. Bloomberg, who is entirely self-funding his campaign, spent more than $188 million in the fourth quarter and ended the period with $12 million in cash on hand.

Supposedly in the new four-hour (yikes!) documentary Hillary the subject says of Bernie Sanders “Nobody likes him.” As with most of Hillary’s judgments, especially when it comes to gauging human desires, she is way off the mark. In fact, Sanders appears to be a reasonably likable guy, which accounts in part for his spike in the Democrat polls. There is a strong possibility he’ll end up the party’s nominee, a frightening prospect for the Democrat establishment and the country as a whole. Current polling suggests Sanders might win the Iowa primary. He’s polling just below Biden (23-21%) within the margin of error.

Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts told Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., on Friday that he would not act as a tie-breaker if the Senate becomes deadlocked with a 50-50 split during President Trump's impeachment trial. Schumer began by asking Roberts if he was aware that Chief Justice Samuel Chase cast tie-breaking votes during President Andrew Johnson's impeachment trial in the 1860s. "I have a parliamentary inquiry," Schumer said. "Is the chief justice aware that in the impeachment trial of President Johnson, Chief Justice Chase, as presiding officer, cast tie-breaking votes on both March 31 and April 2, 1868?"

For some voters, a single issue does much to spur them to either accept or reject a politician's entire platform. Where a candidate stands on hot-button topics, which can include gun control, climate change, or funding our military, matters. Unsurprisingly, abortion is one of the most divisive subjects carefully weighed by the engaged members of the electorate.The Democratic Party collectively favors abortion as a "woman's right to choose." To them, the issue is one that concerns the personal freedom of a woman. On the other hand, the Republican Party is largely against abortion. For the GOP, abortion is about the most fundamental of all rights: the right to life.

The 2012 Republican presidential nominee might yet acquit Trump on two articles alleging abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, but consistent criticism of Trump throughout impeachment, a GOP rarity, capped by support for witnesses has some Republicans convinced Romney is jockeying to reclaim the party.
