    Emperor Trump is still repeating his outrageous lies that he's done nothing wrong and his phone call with Zelensky was "perfect." He's now come up with an equally outrageous prediction: "Impeachment will be used routinely to attack future Presidents." Some day he might actually read the Constitution and learn what the impeachment process is all about – but I'm not holding my breath.

    Pelosi directs House to draft articles of impeachment against Trump: 'In America, no one is above the law'

    Turley is one of those typical Republican lawyers who believe everything a Democrat does is bad but nothing a Republican does is bad. I wonder where Turley earned his master's degree in Double Standards.

    The GOP's only impeachment witness contradicted his own previous testimony
    Business Insider, Dec 4 2019 12:23 PM

    Jonathan Turley, a law professor who appeared as a Republican witness in Wednesday's impeachment hearings, made a number of claims that directly contradicted his previous statements and testimony. Turley argued there was no proof that President Donald Trump broke a specific law related to the Ukraine scandal and therefore should not be impeached. But in 1998, Turley made the opposite case, telling Congress during Bill Clinton's impeachment hearings that Clinton's actions didn't need to violate any laws in order to be impeachable conduct. "While there's a high bar for what constitutes grounds for impeachment, an offense does not have to be indictable," he wrote in a 2014 op-ed for The Washington Post.

    "We know we can't defend our side so instead we'll try to discredit your side." That's the standard legal strategy in Trumpworld.

    White House counsel Pat Cipollone says "adopting articles of impeachment would be a reckless abuse of power by House Democrats and would constitute the most unjust, highly partisan and unconstitutional attempt at impeachment in our nation's history." Cipollone, same as Donald Trump, seems to know nothing about the Constitution of the United States. Impeachment is Constitutional. And if he wants to see "reckless abuse of power," he can look at his boss.

    On November 29, Williams, a national security aide, provided written testimony about a September 18 Pence-Zelensky phone call. In a letter, Adam Schiff asked Mike Pence to declassify details of the call so Williams' testimony can be made public as part of the impeachment investigation. Schiff reminded Pence that an executive order says information relating to illegal actions "shall not be classified, continue to be maintained as classified or fail to be declassified." Pence's office has not yet responded. Pence has also refused to turn over requested documents. He should be reminded how cover-ups doomed the Nixon Presidency.

    CNN's Ari Melber today noted that Republicans are not disputing the details of the Trump-Zelensky phone call. They can't. And Mick Mulvaney's admission of the quid-pro-quo offer – military aid in exchange for dirt on Biden – is, in Melber's words, the "smoking gun." Melber predicts Trump and the Republicans will handle the impeachment trial the same way they dealt with the Mueller investigation: Distract, distort, divert, discredit and try to mislead the American people into believing Trump did nothing wrong. Sorry, Republicans, but jeopardizing national security and our election process by pressuring a foreign government to investigate a political rival is a violation of the Presidential oath of office.

    Melber also expects Republicans will claim Trump was only trying to "root out corruption" – even though he never even mentioned corruption during his phone call and even though he's never sought to "root out corruption" in any country other than Ukraine. And what an amazing coincidence that the supposed "corruption" involves Joe Biden!

    Withholding miitary aid and pressuring a foreign country to investigate a political rival constitutes bribery and an abuse of power. Barring witnesses from testifying and refusing to provide subpoenaed documents is obstruction of Congress. Republicans disagree. They insist Trump has done nothing wrong and certainly nothing impeachable. They accuse Democrats of making this impeachment a partisan issue but, by continuing to defend Trump, Republicans are the ones who have turned impeachment into a partisan issue: Trump and the Republican party come first and the Constitution, the rule of law, the balance of powers, the Presidential oath of office and the integrity of our elections do not matter. Not at all.

    As USA TODAY noted, because Trump's response to the impeachment investigation "consists primarily of name-calling and tweeting and denouncing and deflecting, it's hard to avoid concluding that the White House has no substantive defense to offer."

    The LA Times joins the growing group of major newspapers calling for Trump's impeachment
    Business Insider, Dec 7 2019 9:45 AM

    The Los Angeles Times editorial board today called for President Donald Trump's impeachment. Less than a week after the impeachment inquiry transitioned into a new phase in the House Judiciary Committee, the Times' editorial board wrote: "We've seen enough. Trump should be impeached. Trump perverted US foreign policy for his own political gain. That sort of misconduct is outrageous and corrosive of democracy. It can't be ignored by the House and it merits a full trial by the Senate on whether to remove him from office." A growing number of major newspapers are publicly calling for Trump's impeachment while criticizing his dealings with Ukraine and efforts to stonewall the impeachment inquiry.

    If Republican politicians were honest and truthful – which they are not – their television ads would urge the public, "Vote for us because we care about Donald Trump, the Republican party and the wealthiest Americans. Don't waste your vote on Democrats who care about such trivial matters as the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the balance of powers, the Presidential oath of office, national security and the integrity of our elections."

    Impeachment is a political process, not a legal process. Otherwise, Trump's three-year history of abuse of power, unconstitutional actions, witness intimidation, obstruction of Congress and obstruction of justice would result in his removal from office. In a Senate trial, however, the blindly loyal Republican members of the Cult of Donald Trump will ensure he remains in the Presidency so he can continue abusing his power, threatening witnesses, obstructing Congress, obstructing justice and committing unconstitutional actions. What a sad time for our nation.
