Democrats signal new round of impeachment before election

In a Supreme Court brief filed Monday, an attorney for the Democrat-led House of Representatives Judiciary Committee requested that secret information heard by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s grand jury be provided to the House to support another impeachment inquiry:

“This case concerns … disclosure of a limited amount of grand-jury material bearing on the Committee’s impeachment investigation of President Donald J. Trump for misconduct detailed in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Report.”

The brief stated that delaying Democrats’ access would harm the ongoing impeachment attempts which they hope to get to before the end of the session of Congress: 

A “substantial delay will seriously endanger the Committee’s ability to complete its impeachment investigation during the current Congress.”

That statement suggests that Democrats intend to hold additional impeachment hearings right up until the 2020 election, raising questions about political motivations to harm President Trump’s reelection bid.

Throughout Trump’s first term in office, Democrats in the House and Senate have threatened impeachment for “Russia collusion,” the president’s response to COVID-19, and held a controversial impeachment trial over a phone call the president had with the Ukrainian president.

The Democrats’ argument to the High Court for access to the grand jury testimony claims that Russian interference in the 2016 election was “unprecedented,” other evidence suggests that is not the case.

President Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, told CNN in 2017, “This is not the first time [the Russians have] done things like this. We have records of their attempts to interfere in our electoral process going back to the 1960s. There has always been this ambient level of Soviet or Russian activity, involvement, and attempts to influence our election.”

During Trump’s first two years in office, Democrats’ impeachment hopes were vested in the Special Counsel investigation but those hopes were dashed over a year ago when Mueller completed his report and it was learned that there was no evidence of a conspiracy between the Trump Campaign and Russian officials.  

Recently, additional evidence was made public from the House Intelligence Committee’s own investigation that showed testimony from several Obama Administration national security and intelligence officials indicating they knew all along that there was no evidence of any collusion between the Trump Campaign and Russia.

Still, the Democrats persist despite new evidence that John Brennan, Obama’s CIA Director, had suppressed evidence that Russia, including its Premier, Vladimir Putin, actually preferred Hillary Clinton over Trump in 2016. In a Foxnews.com editorial, Fred Fleitz, a retired CIA analyst and former Chief of Staff for the National Security Council stated the following:

“House Intelligence Committee staff told me that after an exhaustive investigation reviewing intelligence and interviewing intelligence officers, they found that Brennan suppressed high-quality intelligence suggesting that Putin actually wanted the more predictable and malleable Clinton to win the 2016 election.”

Since Democrats took control of the House in 2019, Republicans in the Trump administration say they have used the power of legislative oversight as a cudgel against the President. How the Supreme Court rules on access to the grand jury material is unlikely to deter Democrats, lack of evidence hasn’t yet.

    There should be a consequence for this spineless imbecile movement six months before the election. Mail in ballots aren’t working, now this stunt. How about all Democrat’s involved in this attempt will For it their chance to run for office again. You are wasting tax payers money, and in the mean time, the House is not doing the job’s they are elected for. Obviously they didn’t learn one dam thing from holding back information they had on COVID 19. THhis time they should forgot their government postsitions.

    “Misconduct”… gee, what a specific crime for impeachment. Not like the Anti-America Party will try to mold that into anything they wish.

  3. pl donaldson May 19, 2020

    Let them keep it up. I read comments everyday where good, sensible people who happen to be Democrats are waking up to what their party is doing. The Republican Party is open to everyone and it is the only party that is interested in seeing America remain a SOVEREIGN Nation! Just keep it up – and hide and watch what happens next.

  4. Gerald Ladd May 19, 2020

    The niggeRAT party just won’t give up. They should try to do something good for the country. I know, that’s asking a lot.

    It’s just a dang shame that now Americans have to pay for yet another fake impeachment hoax!!!!! Why can’t someone step in and tell these Democrat idiots they can’t do this again???? This is now beyond ridiculous…only because they hate their President so much that they have to act like 2 year olds!!!!! It’s totally pathetic!!!! The Democrats should have to pay for this hoax, NOT US!!!! They want the President out of office so they are not all exposed for their corrupt ways!!! They lost the election..they need to get over it!!!! The Democrats do NOT work for the American people….Vote all of them out of office so we can move on and have a great country!!! It’s sickening what they are doing!!!!

  8. JoeyP May 19, 2020

    Don’t WORRY! . . . their turn is COMING. There ARE laws against TREASON and SEDITION. HIGH CRIMES against the POTUS and the American People as per the U.S. Constitution. One Enlightened Patriot. Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  9. Earl May 19, 2020

    Good, the more stupidness that the DemonRATs show the more it will hurt them in November.

  10. Carol Madden May 19, 2020

    If the tables were turned, do you even think the Dems would stand for such nonsense? I hope the constituents for these idiotic yardbirds are paying attention so they can be ousted in the next election==particularly since none of the constituents are willing to RECALL these horribly wayward congressional members. These so-called men and women are behaving worse than a group of juvenile delinquents rather than duly elected adults. They are worse than 2 year old’s throwing a temper tantrum because mommy won’t buy a new toy. As one of the congressional constituents, I resent the fact hat they are wasting my tax dollars in such juvenile activities and NOT DOING THE JOB
    THEY WERE ELECTED FOR. The are making the United States the laughing stock of the world. Enough is enough–either get back to work or get out of politics.

    To nadless Nadler and America’s Hemorrhoid Schifty Schiff take your gavels and shove them up your asses sideways. You are both a disgrace and the definition of NON essrntial employees..

    As far as I know, no one alive has been able to ever fix STUPID, which include stupid, homosexual loving, child molesting, baby murdering, retarded DemonRATS, the spawn of “Hillary RODENT Clinton” the mother of all “Sewer Rats” who slink upon the earth from the crypts of Hell, to spread their diseased mind mental and emotional illnesses across this planet. Thank the living God, i.e., the Father of Light who presides over us all, these mentally sick, emotionally twisted nitwits don’t even make the slightest sense even to each other let alone to us decent, hard working, educated, loving parent Christens, who try to simply support our families and charitable worthwhile causes to help each other through this life.

  13. billy May 19, 2020

    the Democrats are all above the LAW and cannot be harmed like Superman. Clinton, Comey and all the other Sewer Rats in Washington are the ones that need to be in prison, Obama needs time in Prison to write another book.

    We do need to march on DC and demonstrate that we know how to build a Gallows.

  15. Barry Hollis May 19, 2020

    It’s past time for the AG ( Barr ) to ask Interpol for it’s non basis help to go over all of the reports and to issue arrest warrants under material witness rules and co conspirators Laws to compel Legal testimony to who new what and when .and by whoos ordered them to continue when there was No Legal evidence at that time .

  16. Barry Hollis May 19, 2020

    No, you would be better off with ms cotolisa Rice , she doesn’t have as much baggage as Abrams

    The only good thing they could do for the country is pour gas all over themselves and light a match

  18. Jan Owen May 19, 2020

    This is an utterly lawless atrocity, and likely Treason. The Supreme court needs to throw these ghouls OUT, literally.

    Okay, so what is the total tab these fools have spent of my tax dollars?

    This article reminds me of a story my dad always told about an ongoing argument in the area in which he worked. Dad said “X” is true and the other fellow said, no “Y” is true. So, dad decided to take a magazine to work which had a story that clearly stated that “X” was true. He got to work and he got the other guy aside and said please read this and the guy’s response was, “I won’t look, I won’t look”. Democrats seem to have this same twisted notion of the truth-there have been four investigations into Trump-Russia collusion and all four came to the same conclusion-“These is/was no evidence of any collusion between Trump and the Russians. In fact, Brennan had evidence that indicated Russia had a strong preference for Hillary Clinton to win the race, which he buried for the duration of the investigations. All of Obama’s criminal cast testified before the House Intelligence Committee and every one of them said they had never seen any evidence of collusion, and yet they allowed the investigations to continue. Schiff, who is the most vocal of the Democrats to claim that he’s sure there was collusion, but they just couldn’t find it and the whole time he was holding back the transcripts of the testimony from the investigators and the public. Now, the Democrats are talking about another round of investigations which they hope can lead to another impeachment. In my view, anyone who has seen evidence of someone’s innocence several dozen times in several different places has earned a reward which involves a length of rope and a tree.

    Russia, Russia, Russia deflecting from the real criminals of Obamagate!

    Hopefully the SCOTUS will do the right thing and tell these scumbag traitors to go to he!!.

    Televised execution by firing squad.

    The Democrats are just wasting our money we are in debt with all the money they have spent. They took 30 million dollars money out of Social Security to try to impeach Trump last time and you know they didn’t repay it that is why Social Security is going broke. How much more are they going to waste. The Democrats are not for the America people they are for the illegal immigrants Nancy Pelosi even posted that she wanted the immigrants to get the stimulus check and making sure that had good jobs If the stimulus check past that Nancy Pelosi made up would have done away with voting rights and give more power to the immigrants and other stupid stuff, Senate John Kennedy said that would have put us 28 Trillion dollars in debt and we are borrowing money from Americans and foreign country’s like China just to pay the bill’s. What is wrong with the Democrats. They need voted out and get people in that wants to help American people.

  25. Roger Meyer May 20, 2020

    Simply another attempt by the deranged Democrats to help poor incompetent, aging Biden gather a few more votes from their cattle herd of Democrat voters.
    So sad to see such obviously transparent attempts to fool a group of, mostly intelligent, people into believing their lies.

  26. Dave May 20, 2020

    I hope the spineless, do-nothing Democrats in the House of Reprentatives do impeach President Trump – AGAIN – before election day. They had no proof of wrong doing the first time, and that will be the case again the second time around. The Senate will see the witch hunt for what it is and vote not to impeach President Trump – AGAIN! Then voters will do what they did in 1998 when they saw the Republican majority House of Representatives as a do-nothing-but-impeach Bill Clinton House and vote enough of them out to flip the House to a Democrat majority. If voters haven’t seen this current House of Representatives with a Democrat majority as a do-nothing-but-try-to-impeach Donald Trump already, a second go-around will put the nail in the coffin of a Democrat majority House and flip it to a Republican majority! AND we won’t have Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House! Hopefully the new Speaker will be my Representative, Kevin McCarthy.

  27. Walt Miller May 20, 2020

    This goes to show you that the Democrats do not care about the American people. All they are concerned about is getting President Trump out of office.

  28. Charles Ellis May 20, 2020

    The Democratic Congress is ruining our country. They are as close to being communist as they can get. Get rid of Pelosi and her gang. They wasted 34 million last year. This is about trying to influence the presidential election in their favor. That want happen. Vote straight Republican.

  29. Ron May 20, 2020

    The whole Damn bunch of the stupid dems. in Washington along with Obama and biden
    should be charged with treason against the best POTUS WE HAVE HAD SINCE REAGAN !

  30. Nance May 21, 2020

    OK BARR! You aren’t going to open criminal investigations on the Deep State, Killary, Obama, so they can get by with yet another very costly, bogus charge against Trump. While the Marxist Media has this impeachment of NOTHING on 24/7 trying to brainwash Americans into believing Trump is a traitor to America, just like they did with Nixon! Yet, the real criminals, the last Regime, Obama and Killary, literally committed Treason against America, and got by with it. Uranium One, according to one of the CIA Investigators, was the biggest counterterrorism deal ever made in America, and nothing is done. Benghazi four Patriots including our Ambassador to Libya, MURDERED BY OBAMA’S PALS, the savages! In the meantime, Obama and Killary are funneling guns through Libya to Syria, in which ISIS was born, and that is on Killary for political decisions made after Benghazi. Yet, NOT ONE WORD! Sure, bring it on, this farce, but with every fake charge, with every seedy action the Democratic Socialist/Communist Party and leaders make, President Trump just gets more popular and will win by a landslide in 2020! THEN WHAT?!
