    What are the repercussions of legal counsel being so clueless when it comes to the law? If this language was concocted for misinformation and misdirection of legal proceedings, as I suspect, is this okay to waste the courts time? To waste a nations time?

    Saying it's a victory for Democrats is false – it's a victory for the law. For the standards put into place by Congress. It's a victory for any body of Congress pit against a corrupt president, Republican or Democrat, that tries to invalidate their own investigation.

    The one big problem that our government is having right now, is that there are no descriptions, and no specifics about the kind of lawbreaking that trump is engaging in as our "president". There has never been this level of a "career criminal" in office before. The judiciary branch is now going to HAVE to draw up some guidelines for subsequent presidents to follow which will in effect LIMIT the powers of the executive branch, and set some standards for them to follow. I really CANNOT BELIEVE that there are still so many fools in this country who would SWEAR that trump hasn't done anything wrong! "What laws has he broken?", they will always ask, but no laws have ever needed to be written to control such a NUTJOB of a "president" before. What I'm attempting to describe, is what is NOT being mentioned by ANYONE in our government right now, but it is becoming so abundantly clear that it REALLY, REALLY NEEDS TO BE!!! Our Constitution is being ATTACKED by this "administration".(I put admin. in quotes, because it contains only ONE GUY who needs a Psychiatrist in the WORST way!)

    Yes dumb dumb the President is the Cheif Lead Investigator for the United States of America. If he suspects that he needs to withhold funding because it could be going to a new corrupt leader then he needs to be able to withhold that funding. A new corrupt leader who may be working with the same corrupt people the last leader worked with when Joe Biden was doing deals, that Joe was aware of the corruption and was participating in it, means Mr. President is doing the right thing and is not breaking any law. He's uncovering the lies and the who. Racheal dumb dumb why aren't you asking why are we giving money to some other country when we need it here.? But racheal is such a dumb person or is been a told what to do and think and the overall direction in agreement with the news team producers, these people would NEVER ask such very important questions, why are "we the people" still getting hosed.

    Surely its time to stop pointing and laughing and start dragging people into courtrooms ? Month after month of commentators (and writers with a book to peddle) rolling their eyes and telling us it will all end badly for Trump but other than Manafort I'm just not seeing the prosecutions I would expect to come out of the actions of a career criminal who just happened to find himself in the Oval Office.

    The rulings of judges don't matter if the chief law enforcement official in the land (Barr) refuses to enforce them, and is in fact "in the back pocket" of the person being investigated. We're in a situation where we're saying the king is corrupt, but the only person who can do anything about it is his equally corrupt sheriff.

    Isn't it awkwardly apparent that this administration of corruption tends to ignore the strength of our constitution unless it might be used as a shield against the prosecution of their corruption?

  38. Kevin Williamson
    Kevin Williamson October 28, 2019

    When you have no valid, legal argument just do a variation of the "fake news" narrative: Fake Impeachment.

    For the sake of seeing justice done and, perhaps, making any future persons take a step back before trying similar tactics, I'd love to see Trumpster and Barr impeached or resign and then tried and sent to prison. But I'm also a realist and understand how unlikely that will be. The prison part, that is. Wealth, position, and connections offer some individuals a certain immunity from facing the same justice system as the average citizen. So I'm not pinning any hopes on it.

    "" THE WEST WING BELIEVES MORE SHOULD BE DONE TO SHORE UP REPUBLICAN SUPPORT TO AVOID EMBARRASSMENT AND GENUINE POLITICAL PERIL "" this statement was issued from the press at the White House.

    I have no doubt Trump forced the WH council to write such garbage. They all deserve to be disbarred for breaking the law and obstruction of justice. Barr is a traitor to the United States. HIs legacy will be gross corruption and obstruction. I want to see Barr in chains and an orange jumpsuit. Finally we will get to see Barr's redacted Mueller report IN FULL. Trump will have to be dragged out of the WH kicking and screaming. He knows he and his corrupt brats are going to be indicted by the district of NY the second he's impeached and no one can pardon them.

    Trump refused his pay to be the president of the US= unemployment or no income claim. Then he instructs the Admistration 's postmaster to take his pay and donate it to one of his favourite charities. This is a limited donation that can be claimed as a deductions. That possibly looks like a loss of income.

    Most likely all of his income left in his possession, is hidden through shell companies, off shore accounts and other pro Trump countries. Which the IRS can't touch it verify. My belief is that Trump has plenty of hidden money. He has set the US tax payers up to pay for the care, entertainment/ lodging of WH. Personal and Security Teams and upkeep of his of his resorts in Florida, Scottland, Turkey ect.. It looks like we are set up to keep paying for his properties after Trump is no longer President.

    This is all conjecture based on information available on TV, Videos, News Paper Articals and Historical Documenteries, all available to public research. But be aware, it looks like, we've been set up to support D.J.Trump and hisl for the rest of his life

    Only one explanation is needed, the Republicans in the House have no balls and are all being b*tchd out by Trump. Totally spineless men, jellyfish. The Republicans literally voted for private meetings like this in 2015. NOW it's a problem. Such hypocrites….lol!

  68. Cyd Oman
    Cyd Oman October 29, 2019

    The Judgement found there is no need for the whole House to vote on an impeachment inquiry in order to have subpoena powers to obtain evidence from the grand jury because:

    (1)there is no textual requirement in the Constitution for such a vote;
    2)there is no requirement in the House rules for such a vote;
    and 3) there is no requirement in the law governing release of grand jury testimony to the House for such a vote;

    Pelosi's agreement to have a full House vote now forces the Republicans to vote against the judicial argument in order to protect Trump, cementing them to his crime of blackmail or gives them a chance to publicly admit they find the blackmail offensive enough to support the furtherance of the investigation.

    Well played.

    So one stop on the road to the SCOTUS and you call it over? This was just one lower court. President Trump has the right to take this to SCOTUS and that is where all of this is heading. So before you get all worked up think this is nothing it is Meaningless and it carries no legal weight since the Appeal was already filed. If you want to do a touch down dance why not wait for the Touch Down and that will done at the SCOTUS.

    Those lawyers that are supporting Donald Trump after his presidency they might as well just go ahead and take their license and put it into the shredder because no firm would touch them with a ten-foot pole. Cuz every court case that they have the judges in that court case would eviscerate them. Which means that their job is a lawyer is over there's no way they can do their job with that letter that they sent.

  91. Paul Henri
    Paul Henri October 30, 2019

  92. Paul Henri
    Paul Henri October 30, 2019

    I believe and I think the whole world is coming to the same conclusion just by the Republicans actions. Did the Republicans knew all along about Donald Trump in the Russian government they not only knew what was going on but they were working together with Donald Trump for this to happen. Which makes Donald Trump the first person in American history that is not legally president. And when all is said and done I believe that a lot of Republicans might end up in jail when the dust settles. This is why they're protecting Donald Trump's so much to the point they look like a bunch of morons.
