“This is Gonna be a Bang-Bang Couple of Weeks” – Joe diGenova

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

In case you missed it, take 10 minutes out of your day to watch the clip below. – Laura Ingraham had Rudy Giuliani and Joe diGenova on together for a 9 minute segment Tuesday night, and both men were very blunt in their assessments of the sordid behavior of Nancy Pelosi and her House Circus Clown caucus, the status of the fake impeachment process, and of the Barr/Durham investigation, among several other topics.

Here’s the clip:

For those of you who still like to read stuff, here are some key quotes from Giuliani and diGenova:

Giuliani: “I would love to testify [before the House Intel Committee], give me a half hour to point out  ‘Biden inc.’. Four decades of crime. I’d love to do it.”

Giuliani: [After seeing clip of Cory Booker saying he’d love to question Giuliani if he testifies before Senate Judiciary Committee] “I have to go into the arena with Spartacus? Gee, I don’t know if I could handle it. I mean, he’s a really tough guy. I don’t know. Man, he really scares me.

“He was a terrible mayor. I was a mayor of a city [New York] and I turned it around. He was a mayor and the city [Newark] had more crime when he left than when he came in.”

diGenova: “This is why this notion that you are going to keep these witnesses identities secret, while they are trying to nullify an election, commit regicide, and remove a president of the United States is ludicrous. Everybody knows that in all likelihood, Fusion GPS was involved with this person, this ‘anonymous informant’ – I refuse to call him a whistleblower because he is not a whistleblower under the law – and everybody knows that there is a former FBI agent[!] who worked with this whistleblower, as he is now called.

“So, we’re going to learn a lot about the fact that this person never wrote this document, this was drafted by a committee of political consultants and researchers and people affiliated with the Democrat National Committee.

Giuliani: “Adam Schiff is a witness. You can’t preside over a hearing where you’re a witness. Also, how can it be possible that we can’t test the credibility of these witnesses? You can’t come to a conclusion unless you can test credibility. For example, this law firm – Campos, Dampos or whatever the name of it is – was offering money to people. They were offering help with your mortgage, expenses, they were bribing the witnesses to come forward. You don’t think I’d want to cross examine the witness with that?”

diGenova: “Here’s the deal. This [IC] Inspector General is a moron. When he wrote that analysis he was wrong about the law, this was not a ‘matter of grave concern,’ he got slapped down so badly by the office of legal counsel when they analyzed the facts. This guy, Michael Atkinson, is a moron. There is no way around how bad a job he did. He’s an embarrassment to the inspector general cadre.”

Giuliani: “I’d just like to explain to ‘little Schiff’ that propounding and presenting a false narrative of someone’s guilt is called obstructing justice. He did it. He did it right in front of the American people, he did it for about 20 minutes. And he did it again, earlier, when he said he had evidence of ‘Russia collusion’. Where’s your evidence, Schiff? You’re a liar – I’m calling you out as a liar. Where’s your evidence?”

diGenova: “If it weren’t for double standards, Democrats would have no standards at all. This is just insanity…that tape of Schiff, just watching him, bug-eyed, performing like a loon, and watching him pronounce these nostrums that are stupid and unsupportable legally, this is the chairman of a major committee, and Pelosi, you know, trying to keep her dentures in her mouth while she’s talking to him, is just there, abiding by this, it’s outrageous.”

Giuliani: “And it would be funny if it wasn’t such a horrible, horrible trashing of our constitution.”

diGenova: [Asked how confident he is that big things are coming from IG Horowitz’s report and the Barr/Durham investigation] “This is gonna be a bang-bang couple of weeks.”

There’s much more in there, so please watch the whole thing. The fun is just beginning.

That is all.

Dear Nancy: Until You Hold a Vote, Buzz Off. Yours Truly, Donald.

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Dear Nancy: Until you hold a vote, buzz off. Yours truly, Donald. –  News broke late Thursday that the White House will soon shoot a letter off to San Fran Nan and her band of merry munchkins, possibly today, daring them to hold a formal impeachment vote on the floor of the house if they want to receive any cooperation in the matter.

This matters because to this point all the Deep State Dems and their corrupt media toadies have been doing is staging their own version of a reality TV show. Instead of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” we should call it “Keeping Up With The Treasonists.”

Pelosi has thus far refused to hold a formal vote on the floor because the fake “impeachment inquiry” process she has constructed allows her to fully control every move. As it stands today, the GOP majority is being denied rights that have been traditionally allowed under House rules that govern impeachment inquiries that involve presidents.

Rather than try to describe the details myself, I thought it best to let some actual experts do that for you.

First, former U.S. attorney Joe diGenova and his wife, Victoria Toensing described the issues quite succinctly in an appearance with Fox Business host Lou Dobbs yesterday:

For those of you who still prefer to read stuff, here is a transcript:

Digenova: Well, it’s quite obvious what the Democrats are doing. They have not had a vote on the floor of the house to start a formal impeachment inquiry because if they were to have such a vote, under the house rules for impeachment, the Republicans would get subpoena power. So in order to avoid giving the Republicans subpoena power, they are doing this ‘impeachment lite’ with these six different committees who are claiming it’s an impeachment inquiry, and they’re trying to subpoena people and get documents without having an impeachment vote on the floor. That is why the White House said we are not going to cooperate with this kangaroo court.

Dobbs: All right, your legal opinion: Will Trump be able to maintain that position if Pelosi does not relent?

Digenova: Yes, and in fact, the White House position is very well-founded based on the history of impeachment proceedings against presidents. Not judges – impeachment proceedings for judges are irrelevant. In terms of impeachment proceedings for presidents, always there has been a vote on the floor of the house and the minority has been given subpoena power.

Toensing: And the constitutional basis for that, Lou, is the congress is supposed to be the legislative body. Well, they’re not legislating when they’re impeaching, so they become a different kind of entity. And in that, they have to have the full support of the majority of the body. This is legal chess, and the White House just moved its queen.

Digenova: And remember what they’re trying to do: They’re trying to nullify an election.

Dobbs: They’re trying to overthrow a president.

Digenova: Exactly, and this is basically a coup in the form of an ‘informal’ impeachment inquiry. So, this is extra-constitutional as well as un-constitutional.

[End]

Former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy, writing at The Hill, has this to say about it in a terrific piece this morning that everyone should go read:

There is no impeachment inquiry. There are no subpoenas.

You are not to be faulted if you think a formal inquest is under way and that legal process has been issued. The misimpression is completely understandable if you have been taking in media coverage — in particular, reporting on a haughty Sept. 27 letter from House Democrats, presuming to direct Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, on pain of citation for obstruction, to cooperate in their demands to depose State Department officials and review various records.

The letter is signed by not one but three committee chairmen. Remember your elementary math, though: Zero is still zero even when multiplied by three.

What is portrayed as an “impeachment inquiry” is actually just a made-for-cable-TV political soap opera. The House of Representatives is not conducting a formal impeachment inquiry. To the contrary, congressional Democrats are conducting the 2020 political campaign.

The House has not voted as a body to authorize an impeachment inquiry. What we have are partisan theatrics, proceeding under the ipse dixit of Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). It raises the profile, but not the legitimacy, of the same “impeachment inquiry” House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) previously tried to abracadabra into being without a committee vote.

Moreover, there are no subpoenas. As Secretary Pompeo observed in his fittingly tart response on Tuesday, what the committee chairmen issued was merely a letter. Its huffing and puffing notwithstanding, the letter is nothing more than an informal request for voluntary cooperation. Legally, it has no compulsive power. If anything, it is rife with legal deficiencies.

[End]

So, to sum up:

  • This is not a real impeachment inquiry;
  • The Democrats, with help from the Intelligence Community and the corrupt news media, are in the midst of another coup d’etat attempt;
  • The Republicans in the House are being denied their rights under House rules; and
  • Neither the President nor any other member of the executive branch of government has any obligation to comply with any requests or subpoenas that come out of this reality TV show process.

Pelosi is dead set on denying the Republicans any right to issue subpoenas or take part in the questioning of witnesses because she knows if they get those rights, her false impeachment narrative will crash and burn.

Sure is going to be fun to watch how she responds to the White House letter.

That is all.
