Republicans Admit They Will Violate Their Oath to be Impartial

Republicans in the Senate have all but guaranteed that there will be zero chance the Trump will be convicted and removed during the Senate trial on impeachment. They’ve announced that there will be no witnesses, no new evidence, and they want to have it wrapped up in just a week or two.

 

Avlon: GOP senators admitting they intend to violate oath (news clips 2)

US senators must take a special oath during impeachment proceedings, promising to be impartial during the Senate trial. CNN’s John Avlon says some leading Republican senators are already admitting they intend to violate it.

 

 

During an interview with CNN this weekend, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham admitted that he will not be a “fair juror” as he put it, and instead will vote to clear Trump of all charges against him in the upcoming Senate impeachment trial.

The conservative group Republicans for the Rule of Law has taken out a massive billboard in the middle of Times Square in New York with a very simple message for Americans: What Is Trump Hiding?

Trump & Republicans Appointing Unqualified Judges

Trump nominee for federal judge has never tried a case

Trump nominated Brett J. Talley, a 36 year old blogger who has practiced law for three years, has never tried a case and who thinks Hillary Clinton should be Jailed, for a lifetime appointment on the Federal Bench.

 

Every single one of these Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to approve the nomination of the 36 year old blogger with no trial experience. It’s bad enough that Trump nominated this guy, but it’s reasonable to expect Senators, most of whom are lawyers to provide some checks and balances from incompetent and inexperienced people being hired and employed in key positions.

This more proof Republicans are unqualified to be in positions of power.

Republicans Confirm Judge Rated ‘Not Qualified’ For Being ‘Lazy,’ ‘Arrogant’

TAKE ACTION: Protect Our Courts

Tell Senators Cortez Masto and Rosen to vote ‘NO’ on Lawrence VanDyke for the 9th Circuit!

Per the above petition; President Trump has nominated former Nevada Solicitor General, Lawrence VanDyke, for a lifetime judgeship on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Last month, the American Bar Association took the rare step of rating VanDyke as “unqualified,” noting colleagues of his who were interviewed consistently gave this description: “arrogant, lazy, an ideologue and lacking in knowledge of the day-to-day practice, including procedural rules. There was a theme that the nominee lacks humility, has an ‘entitlement’ temperament, does not have an open mind, and does not always have a commitment to being candid and truthful.” Furthermore, they were concerned “about whether Mr. VanDyke would be fair to persons who are gay, lesbian or otherwise part of the LGBTQ community.”

The American Bar Association took the rare step of rating VanDyke as “unqualified,” noting colleagues of his who were interviewed consistently gave this description: “arrogant, lazy, an ideologue and lacking in knowledge of the day-to-day practice, including procedural rules.

VanDyke has a long history of extremist anti-LGBTQ rhetoric and actions. As a student at Harvard Law School, he wrote an op-ed claiming same-sex marriage would “hurt families and consequentially children and society.” At his hearing, VanDyke was provided with an opportunity to address his previous statements regarding same-sex marriage, specifically as to whether same-sex marriage damaged children. He pointedly refused to answer. VanDyke also refused to respond to Senators’ inquiries as to his legal approach to the intersection of LGBTQ rights and religious liberty. Emails from him reveal a Solicitor General who had little interest in engaging in the daily tasks of the office and instead an ideologue committed to advancing a political agenda.

 

 

Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh may have escaped the kind of scrutiny that was warranted for a SCOTUS judge during his confirmation, but that doesn’t mean that he’s off the hook. Calls of his impeachment became deafening this past weekend after new allegations came out in the form of a lengthy New York Times investigation. If these allegations are true, then Kavanaugh committed perjury during his confirmation and can be impeached.

 

New York Times reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly discuss the reporting in their new book, “The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation” about the allegations of sexual misconduct that came out during the confirmation hearing of now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Aired on 09/16/19.

 

Ret. Justice John Stevens: Kavanaugh Disqualified Himself From Supreme Court

John Paul Stevens, one of the only living retired Supreme Court justices, believes that Brett Kavanaugh’s emotional, angry testimony disqualified him from being able to serve effectively on the Court.

 

Kavanaugh behaved in a UNHINGED, BELLIGERENT, DEFIANT, COMBATIVE, ARGUMENTATIVE and DISRESPECTFUL manner at the Senate Hearing on September 27, 2018.

When asked questions about drinking, would then throw the questions back at the Senator, demanding they answer HIS questions. Kavanaugh has proved he doesn’t have the temperament to be Supreme Court Justice and is UNFIT for any position in government.

Benefits Russia has Received from Trump Being President

This graphic accurately depicts how Trump has been subservient to Russia / Putin’s wishes. Republicans are doing nothing to “Defend and Protect” the United States from this foreign adversary which is dedicated to our destruction.

Here’s a list of things Putin and Russia has gotten as a result of helping Trump to become President.

25 times Trump was soft on Russia

President Donald Trump has an Achilles’ heel when it comes to Russia.

As stated in the above article;

Trump has repeatedly praised Putin
While he was a private citizen, during his 2016 campaign and throughout his presidency, Trump has showered Putin with praise. He said Putin was “so nice,” he called Putin a “strong leader” and said Putin has done “a really great job outsmarting our country.” Trump also claimed he’d “get along very well” with Putin. Few, if any, Western leaders have echoed these comments.

Trump hired Manafort to run his campaign
Trump raised eyebrows in spring 2016 when he hired GOP operative Paul Manafort to run his presidential campaign. Manafort spent a decade working for pro-Russian politicians and parties in Ukraine and cultivated close relationships with Putin-friendly oligarchs. Manafort is currently in prison for, among other things, evading taxes on the $60 million he made from his Ukraine consulting.

Trump suggested Russia can keep Crimea
Trump said Putin did “an amazing job of taking the mantle” when Russia annexed Crimea in 2014. During the presidential campaign, Trump broke with US policy and suggested he was OK if Russia kept the Ukrainian territory. He repeated a Kremlin talking point, saying, “The people of Crimea, from what I’ve heard, would rather be with Russia than where they were.”

Trump aides softened GOP platform on Ukraine
Ahead of the 2016 Republican National Convention, Trump campaign aides blocked language from the party platform that called for the US government to send lethal weapons to Ukraine for its war against Russian proxies. Mueller investigated this for potential collusion but determined the change was not made “at the behest” of Russia. (The Trump administration ultimately gave lethal arms and anti-tank weapons to the Ukrainian military.)

Trump made light of Russian hacking
Throughout the 2016 campaign, Trump cast doubt on the US government assessment that Russia hacked the Democratic National Committee and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman. At a news conference in July 2016, he even asked Russia to hack more, saying, “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,”

Trump denied that Russia interfered in 2016
The Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the FBI, the CIA, the National Security Agency, the Justice Department and the Senate Intelligence Committee all confirmed that Russia interfered in the 2016 election to help Trump. But Trump has repeatedly rejected this view, and publicly sided with Putin at the Helsinki summit in 2018, saying he accepted Putin’s denials.

Trump transition undermined Russian sanctions
After the election, the Trump transition team asked Russia not to retaliate against new US sanctions imposed by then-President Barack Obama. The sanctions were meant to punish Russia for interfering in the election, but then-Trump aide Michael Flynn asked the Russian ambassador not to escalate the situation so they could have a good relationship once Trump took over.

Trump was open to lifting Russian sanctions
Days before his inauguration, Trump told The Wall Street Journal that he was open to lifting sanctions on Russia. He said: “If you get along and if Russia is really helping us, why would anybody have sanctions if somebody’s doing some really great things?” Putin has tried for years to persuade the US and European countries to end crippling sanctions on Russia’s economy.

Trump refused to say Putin is a killer
Bucking other US leaders, Trump has dismissed credible allegations that Putin uses violence against his opponents. Trump said in 2015, “I think it would be despicable if that took place, but I haven’t seen any evidence that he killed anybody, in terms of reporters.” Asked again in February 2017, Trump deflected, saying, “There are a lot of killers. Do you think our country is so innocent?”

Trump mulled giving spy compounds to Russia
The Washington Post reported in May 2017 that the Trump administration considered returning two diplomatic compounds to Russia. The Obama administration expelled Russian diplomats and seized the compounds in New York and Maryland after the 2016 election, claiming they were used for “intelligence” purposes. The compounds were never returned to Russia.

Trump gave Russia classified intelligence
In a shocking move during the early months of his presidency, Trump shared highly classified intelligence with two senior Russian officials during an Oval Office meeting in May 2017. The intelligence, which was about ISIS, was sensitive enough that it could have exposed a vulnerable source. The unplanned disclosure by Trump rattled even many of his Republican allies.

Trump was reluctant to sign Russian sanctions
Lawmakers passed a bipartisan bill in July 2017 imposing new sanctions against Russia, even though Trump administration officials reportedly tried to water down the language. Trump reluctantly signed the bill, but said the new law contained “clearly unconstitutional provisions.” Trump had little choice in the matter because the bill had passed with veto-proof majorities. (The Treasury Department followed up with several rounds of hard-hitting sanctions.)

Trump thanked Putin for expelling US diplomats
Trump thanked Putin for expelling hundreds of US diplomats from Russia in August 2017, saying, “I want to thank him because we’re trying to cut down our payroll.” Putin kicked out the officials to retaliate for US sanctions. Trump’s view conflicted with the State Department, which said the mass expulsion was “uncalled for.” (Trump later said he was being sarcastic.)

Trump criticized and alienated NATO allies
Trump has repeatedly attacked NATO, aligning himself with Putin, who wants to weaken the alliance. Trump said NATO was “obsolete,” rattling European leaders. At his first NATO summit, Trump scolded other countries for not spending enough on defense and declined to commit to NATO’s mutual defense pledge. (Trump later said he supported the mutual defense provision.)

Trump eased sanctions on Deripaska
In January 2019, the Trump administration lifted sanctions on three Russian companies tied to Oleg Deripaska, a Russian oligarch with close ties to Putin. The Treasury Department had sanctioned Deripaska and the companies over his support for Russian interference in the 2016 election. In a bipartisan rebuke, 11 Senate Republicans supported a Democratic resolution calling for the sanctions to remain.

Trump congratulated Putin on his sham election
Ignoring the advice of several top national security aides, Trump congratulated Putin on his March 2018 reelection victory. Putin got 77% of the vote, but Western observers declared that the election “lacked genuine competition” and took place in an “overly controlled legal and political environment.” Trump’s critics said he had given the election legitimacy it did not deserve.

Trump defended USSR invasion of Afghanistan
During a January 2019 Cabinet meeting, Trump defended the Soviet Union’s invasion of Afghanistan. He said the Soviet Union “was right” to invade in 1979 because “terrorists were going into Russia.” The comments puzzled many observers, who noted that the Soviets invaded to bolster a communist government and the US had backed Afghan militants who fought the Soviets.

Trump praised pro-Russian leaders in Europe
On several occasions, Trump has praised controversial far-right European leaders who have been shunned by most US officials because of their close ties to Putin. Trump met at the White House with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, a top Kremlin ally. He praised the campaign of French politician Marine Le Pen, whose party previously got millions from a Russian bank.

Trump didn’t publicly condemn Russian attack
According to congressional testimony, Trump declined to publicly condemn a Russian attack against Ukrainian military vessels in November 2018, even though the State Department prepared a statement for him. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo criticized Russia’s “dangerous escalation.” The White House didn’t say anything, but Trump canceled a meeting with Putin.

Trump wanted to let Russia back in the G7
Breaking with American allies, Trump repeatedly called for Russia to be invited back into the Group of Seven. Russia was suspended from the working group of leading industrial nations in 2014 after Putin annexed Crimea. At this year’s G7 summit in France, Trump pressed the other leaders to include Russia next year. They balked at the request, which would have been a huge benefit to Putin without any concessions.

Trump’s Syria withdrawal gave Putin a boost
Trump announced in October 2019 that US troops were withdrawing from northern Syria. The abrupt move cleared the way for Turkey to conquer territories previously controlled by the US and allied Kurdish militias. It also gave Russia a golden opportunity to expand its influence and swiftly take over abandoned US outposts and checkpoints. Trump’s move was a boon for Putin.

Trump repeated Kremlin talking points on ISIS
After announcing the Syria withdrawal, Trump repeated Kremlin talking points about ISIS. He said, “Russia hates ISIS as much as the United States does” and that they are equal partners in the fight. But Trump’s comments don’t reflect the reality on the ground: Since intervening in Syria in 2015, the Russian military has focused its airstrikes on anti-government rebels, not ISIS.
President Donald Trump and Russia's President Vladimir Putin attend a joint press conference after a meeting at the

Trump spread Russian myths about Ukraine
Over the past two months, Trump has said many false things about Ukraine that align with Russian disinformation about the country. This includes claims of uncontrollable corruption, improper ties between Ukrainian officials and the Obama administration, and allegations that Ukraine meddled in US elections. This helps Putin’s goal of destabilizing US-Ukraine relations.

Trump temporarily froze US aid for Ukraine
As the impeachment inquiry has revealed, Trump personally froze $391 million in US military and security assistance for Ukraine in mid-2019. US diplomats said Ukraine desperately needed the help for its war against Russian proxies. Previously, the Trump administration had slow-walked sales of anti-tank missiles to Ukraine because of concerns it would upset Russia, according to a State Department official.

It is clear these actions have & are giving considerable “Aid and Comfort” to a sworn Enemy which at this very moment has Nuclear Missiles aimed at the United States

Republicans who defend and support Trump are violating their Oath of Office to Protect and Defend this Country, because their Oath to Protect and Defend the Constitution and Defend this country are essentially one and the same

Republican’s Hypocrisy over Hillary Clinton’s Private Server

Trump’s iPhone Make Clinton’s Basement Server Look Like Fort Knox

During a June 2016 campaign speech, Donald Trump turned yet again to one of his favorite topics: Hillary Clinton’s e-mails. “Her server was easily hacked by foreign governments, perhaps even by her financial backers in communist China,” he said, “putting all of America and our citizens in danger, great danger.”

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump & Republicans were constantly going nuts about Hillary’s Private Server being insecure and her missing emails… chanting “Lock her up”!

Per the above article… “when it comes to Trump… he and his minions seem to have adopted a stance that’s equally blasé. Not only have myriad reports emerged of officials using encrypted, disappearing-message services like Confide, in potential violation of federal record-keeping laws, but Steve Bannon, Gary Cohn, Jared Kushner, and Reince Priebus all occasionally relied on private e-mail and electronic devices to conduct government business”.

“Chief of Staff John Kelly’s personal cell phone was reportedly compromised for months while he served as secretary of homeland security, under a president who didn’t bother to secure his Android phone or the Wi-Fi networks on his many properties. And it seems the president’s willful neglect of cyber-security has continued well into his time in office”.

 

A bombshell report from ‘The New York Times’ alleges that Chinese and Russian spies are exploiting vulnerabilities in President Trump’s iPhone to listen to his conversations. Trump has reportedly resisted warnings to avoid using the phone. Rep. Ted Lieu tells Ari Melber that it’s “absolutely hypocritical” for Trump to use a non-secure phone when he campaigned on Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, which was never infiltrated by foreign spies.

 

The unbelievable hypocrisy of Sean Hannity, recipient of unsecured presidential phone calls

Per an article posted at mediamatters.org/sean-hannity/unbelievable-hypocrisy-sean-hannity-recipient-unsecured-presidential-phone-calls

“Trump has continued to place calls from his unsecured personal cell phone even after his aides have told him that Chinese and Russian intelligence agencies are listening in and using the information they glean to try to undermine administration policy, The New York Times reported last Wednesday. The president denied the report, as he denies all reports he considers damaging; the Times stands by its work. On Thursday, NBC News matched the story and added an additional detail: Hannity is one of the informal advisers Trump consults using that unsecured channel.

Hannity has continued to fixate on Clinton’s email server since Trump’s election, often citing the FBI’s decision not to recommend charges despite what Hannity describes as clear proof that she “committed felonies” as evidence that Trump has been treated unfairly by special counsel Rober Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 elections. Hannity and his guests accused Clinton of crimes in 218 segments about the Mueller probe in its first year.

While the FBI has said its agents found no evidence Clinton’s servers were compromised, Hannity has often blasted Clinton for damaging national security by purportedly making her emails available to foreign intelligence agencies in China, Russia, and elsewhere”.
