Forget Moving On From Impeachment

Not if Senator Lindsey Graham has his way. Graham is proposing post-impeachment investigations by the Senate to “get to the bottom” of the Democrats’ impeachment hoax. That will pin the disgrace where it belongs — on the party that dragged the nation through an unwarranted ordeal. Meanwhile, Vice President Pence is urging the country to “acquit and move on.” The Washington Post reports many Republican Senators feel the same. Not so fast. It’s not time Read More

Joe Biden Must Explain His Ukraine Dealings

Democrats impeached President Donald Trump for putting his own political fortunes ahead of the national interest in dealing with Ukraine. But it’s Joe Biden who should be in the hot seat for that. Trump is criticized for a July 25 phone call, when he asked the president of Ukraine for help investigating what Joe Biden did, as vice president, to get a prosecutor there fired. Biden’s son was on the payroll of a corrupt Ukrainian energy company, Burisma, targeted by authorities. Democrats claim it was wrong to ask for the investigation. Trump’s defense lawyers say there was every Read More

Getting the Goods on Schiff

Adam Schiff, D-Calif., (AP Photo/Susan Walsh) The truth behind House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff’s role in engineering President Donald Trump’s impeachment may soon come out because a nonprofit group promoting government transparency — Judicial Watch — is suing to get the whistleblower’s emails. No matter how the Senate proceeds with Trump’s trial, Schiff should be held accountable for the devious means he used to drive impeachment. The public also needs the truth about the so-called whistleblower. Real whistleblowers deserve to be treated like heroes. But the man identified as the whistleblower by Judicial Watch and many media Read More

The Witness Wars

File - (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite) Senator Chuck Schumer issued another demand last Sunday for more witnesses and documents as impeachment moves to the Senate. He’s undercutting House Democrats’ claim of a “rock-solid case” against President Donald Trump. “The case we have, if presented to a jury, would be a guilty verdict in about three minutes flat,” boasts Judiciary Committee chair Jerry Nadler. That’s a joke. Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell calls the Dems’ case the “the thinnest basis” for impeachment “in American history.” And Dems know it. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is refusing to send the Read More

Dems’ Impeachment Trickery

FILE - (AP Photo/Andrew Harnik, File) On Wednesday, House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., takes over as ringmaster for the ongoing impeachment show. He’s billing his opening act as an inquiry into the “historical and constitutional basis of impeachment” and “the framers’ intent.” Nadler claims he’ll be looking into what the Constitution’s authors meant by “high crimes and misdemeanors.” Don’t be fooled by Nadler’s scholarly posturing. He isn’t planning a civics lesson. Democrats are hell-bent on impeaching Trump, so Nadler has to rewrite American history and massage the meaning of the Read More
