Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Holy crap, we’re back to “obstruction” again. – Every American who was awake during 2017 will remember how, when their whole “Russia Collusion” fantasy quickly ran aground on the shoals of truth and reality, the Democrat/media/deep state Axis of Disinformation immediately shifted the focus of the Mueller witch hunt to trying to dummy up a case against President Trump for “obstruction of justice.”
In support of that tactic, Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the news media began characterizing literally any action the accused POTUS took to defend himself as somehow being “evidence” of “obstruction.” The very word in fact lost all real meaning as it became just a catch-all for every defensive act, no matter how innocuous it might be.
Lo and behold, on Monday we arrived right back at that very same point again. With their initial justification for kicking off this fake impeachment scam, i.e., the allegation of a ‘quid pro quo’ taking place during the July 25 call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, having collapsed to the point that the Democrats are now pretending the “whistleblower” who started it all now apparently no longer exists, Adam Schiff made it clear during a press availability that the goal posts have now shifted to yet another vague “obstruction’ allegation.
Here is a clip of Schiff’s remarks, followed by a transcript for those who still like to read stuff:
NEW: Rep. Adam Schiff says the White House officials who have "defied congressional subpoenas and refused to appear" for depositions will "further add to the body of evidence on a potential obstruction of Congress charge against the president." https://t.co/MC1IDhEAh5 pic.twitter.com/bSXn5iYjr0

Here’s the transcript of Pencil Neck’s remarks:
Today we had additional scheduled depositions with the top lawyer for the National Security Council, as well as Mr. Blair from the OMB and someone who worked closely with Mick Mulvaney. Both of them defied congressional subpoenas and refused to appear for their scheduled depositions, as has been the case with other witnesses who have done the same thing.
This will be further evidence of the Administration’s efforts to obstruct the lawful and constitutional duties of congress. I would also say, and we expect the witnesses who we’ve subpoenaed to come in this afternoon [garbled] to also be no-shows, this will only further add to the body of evidence on a potential obstruction of congress charge against the President.
Indeed, in the Nixon impeachment there was an article of impeachment based on the obstruction of congress that itemized each of the subpoenas the White House had defied. Well, today we have four additional subpoenas to add to the list of a potential charge against the President of the United States and his obstruction of its constitutional duties.
So, just as in the playbook used for the whole Russia Collusion scam, the Schiff/Pelosi Impeachment scam now shifts away from the failed original allegation to the catch-all tactic of characterizing any and every defensive action taken by the White House as “obstruction of congress.”
The pathological Schiff’s comparison of this current scam to the Nixon impeachment process is both laughable and heinously disgusting. There are three very key differences between the two situations:
- The impeachment process of Nixon was kicked off by a real, true vote of the full House of Representatives on February 6, 1974 to establish a real, true formal impeachment process. The Schiff/Pelosi scam was kicked off by unilateral decree by the Speaker, ostensibly in response to a fake complaint filed a fake whistleblower.
- The 1973 impeachment vote by the House received bipartisan support – last week’s sham vote to simply continue Pelosi’s unlawful process did not.
- In the end, the House impeachment process had identified a long list of real, actual criminal actions taken by President Nixon and his staff. Today’s scam process has not only failed to identify any actual criminal actions on the part of the President or anyone who works for him – other than the fake whistleblower himself, perhaps – we haven’t even seen anyone allege any actual crimes have taken place.
All we have as of today are Schiff’s phony complaints about “obstruction of congress” because Administration official are defying his sham “subpoenas.” Those “subpoenas” in fact have no force of law because the House has to this point failed to legally establish a formal impeachment process. They are in fact nothing more than mendacious letters that contain no enforcement mechanism.
So, we’re back to “obstruction” one more time, and if that tells us anything, it tells us for certain sure that Pencil Neck and his gang of circus clowns are stuck holding another big ol’ bag of nothing.
That is all.
