Adam Schiff Calls Republicans Out

Adam Schiff Calls Republicans out for doing nothing about Russian Interference in the 2016 Election and lying by Trump and his associates

“My colleagues might think it’s OK that the Russians offered dirt on the Democratic candidate for president as part of what’s described as the Russian government’s effort to help the Trump campaign,” he said. “My colleagues might think it’s OK that when that was offered to the son of the president, who had a pivotal role in the campaign, that the son did not call the FBI, he did not adamantly refuse that foreign help — no, instead that son said he would ‘love’ the help with the Russians. You might think it was ok that he took that meeting. You might think it’s ok that Paul Manafort, the campaign chair, someone with great experience running campaigns, also took that meeting. You might think it’s ok that the president’s son-in-law also took that meeting. You might think it’s ok that they concealed it from the public. You might think it’s ok that their only disappointment after that meeting was that the dirt they received on Hillary Clinton wasn’t better. You might think it’s OK. I don’t.”

You might think it’s OK that [Flynn] secretly conferred with a Russian ambassador about undermining US sanctions & then lied about it to the FBI. You might say that’s all OK — that’s just what you have to do to win… I think it’s corrupt & evidence of collusion.

“You might think it’s OK that the president’s son-in-law sought to establish a secret back channel of communication with Russians through a Russian diplomatic facility,” he added. “I don’t think that’s OK. You might think it’s OK that an associate of the president made direct contact with the GRU through Guccifer 2.0 and WikiLeaks. You might think it’s OK that a senior campaign official was instructed to reach that associate and find out what that hostile intelligence agency had to say, in terms of dirt on his opponent. You might think it’s OK that the national security adviser-designate secretly conferred with a Russian ambassador about undermining U.S. sanctions, and you might think it’s OK he lied about it to the FBI. You might say that’s all OK, that that’s just what you need to do to win. But I don’t think it’s OK. I think it’s immoral, I think it’s unethical, I think it’s unpatriotic and, yes, I think it’s corrupt, and evidence of collusion.”

I do not think that conduct, criminal or not, is OK,” concluded Schiff. “The day we do think that’s OK is the day we will look back and say that is the day America lost its way.”

Trump Loves Praising Dictators

Kim Jong Un is only the latest authoritarian that Donald Trump has professed his admiration for dictators.

 

Trump’s History Of Praising Dictators And Bad Mouthing Allies

While in Singapore, Trump heaped praise on Kim Jong-un, calling him “talented” and “smart.” This seems to be part of a pattern for the president, who praises autocratic leaders and bad mouths our democratic allies.

Trump Sides With Dictator Over Death of Otto Warmbier

Trump sides with Dictator Kim Jong Un over U.S. Intelligence regarding the death of college student Otto Warmbier.

Trump said Kim Jong Un was not responsible for the horrific injuries sustained by American student Otto Warmbier, who died shortly after being released from 17 months of detention in North Korea. Former UN ambassador Bill Richardson joins Hallie Jackson to discuss how it’s impossible that Kim Jong Un did not know.

North Korea ordered to pay $500 million in Otto Warmbier’s death

A federal judge in Washington, D.C, has ordered North Korea to pay the parents of Otto Warmbier in a wrongful death lawsuit.

Trump Lies About Border Wall

Trump Caught in Lies About the Border Wall

Cooper calls out Trump’s border security claim

CNN’s Anderson Cooper laughs at President Donald Trump’s statement that a new border wall is being built right now, stating the only new wall “sits on the border between much of what the President says and the facts.”

 

Immediately following his address to the nation on Tuesday evening, Fox News host Shepard Smith fact-checked Trump and called him out on all of the nonsensical lies that he told during the address.

 

Trump Lied about Mexico paying for his Campaign Slogan Wall

As a candidate Trump & his campaign explicitly said they expected Mexico to pay for a border wall, but as the shutdown wages on President Trump is saying something very different.

 

Trump told more than 8,000 falsehoods in 2 years, fact checker says

Donald Trump has made more than 8,000 misleading statements or blatant lies within his first two years of his presidential term, according to fact checkers. The Washington Post’s Fact Checker tallied up the total of Mr Trump’s false statements and downright lies from Inauguration Day to January 20, 2019, and the number is astonishing: 8,158.

With over 8,000 false and misleading statements since becoming president, NOTHING he says can be believed.

Which Russians Are Allegedly Connected To President Donald Trump?

 

Was Russia and the Trump Campaign involved in a Quid Pro Quo?

 

Court Filings Show Donald Trump As Key Figure In Federal Investigations

 

 

Obstructing Justice

After taking office, Trump asked FBI Director James Comey to abandon the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election—which the FBI had already connected to Michael Flynn.
When Comey refused to alter course, Trump fired him.

Trump then admitted the firing was over “the Russia thing” in a televised interview. In a tweet months later, he stated that he “had to fire Michael Flynn because he lied to the FBI”— further affirming that he dismissed James Comey in an attempt to quash the FBI’s investigation.

Bottom line: Trump has repeatedly attempted to interfere in the Russia investigation, and admitted as much—that’s a clear case of obstructing justice.

 

Violating the Emoluments Clause of the U.S. Constitution

The Constitution’s Foreign Emoluments Clause prohibits the president from accepting personal benefits from any foreign government or official.

Trump has retained his ownership interests in his family business while he is in office. Thus, every time a foreign official stays at a Trump hotel, or a foreign government approves a new Trump Organization project, or grants a trademark, Trump is in violation of the Constitution.

 

Advocating Violence and Undermining Equal Protection Under the Law

When Trump gave cover to the neo-Nazis who rioted in Charlottesville and murdered a protester, he violated his obligation to protect the citizenry against domestic violence.
When Trump encouraged police officers to rough up people they have under arrest, he violated his obligation to oversee faithful execution of the laws.

When Trump shared anti-Muslim content on Twitter, he violated his obligation to uphold equal protection of the laws.
This represents a pattern of disregard for some of the president’s basic responsibilities as defined by the Constitution.

Bottom line: Trump has demonstrated a pattern of behavior amounting to advocating violence, undercutting equal protection, and, as a result, failing basic Constitutional duties.

 

Abusing the Pardon Power

President Trump’s decision to pardon Joe Arpaio amounted to an abuse of the pardon power that revealed his indifference to individual rights and equal protections.

Joe Arpaio was convicted for contempt of court after ignoring a court order that he stop detaining and searching people based on the color of their skin, which constitutes a violation of their rights.
Pardoning this conviction goes against the Fifth Amendment, which allows the judiciary to issue and enforce injunctions against government officials who flout individual rights.

Bottom line: Trump’s pardon of Joe Arpaio violates the Fifth Amendment and harms the guarantee of Constitutional rights.

Engaging in Conduct that Grossly Endangers the Peace and Security of the United States

High-ranking administration officials involved in foreign affairs have signaled that Trump does not have the capacity to make informed decisions in the event of a military crisis.
Even worse, his actions could spark a needless confrontation stemming from misunderstanding or miscalculation.
We see this in full effect every time Trump tweets or makes a public statement taunting and threatening the North Korean regime.

The president may be the “Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States,” but that does not give him the right to behave in reckless or wanton ways that put millions of lives at risk.

If he is unfit to perform his duties as Commander in Chief, he cannot be allowed to remain in the position.

 

Undermining the Freedom of the Press

Trump has repeatedly attacked the concept of an independent press. He’s called critical coverage “fake news” and journalists “the enemy of the American people,” made threats to change libel laws and revoke licenses, and his battles with CNN led him to try to interfere in the AT&T/Time Warner merger.
This demonstrates his unwillingness to respect and uphold the Constitution, and disdain for the crucial foundations to our free society.

Bottom line: Trump’s threats against freedom of the press are also threats against American democracy. Thanks to Free Speech for People, whose white paper, ‘The Legal Case for a Congressional Investigation on Whether to Impeach President Donald J. Trump,’ served as the basis for this list.

 

Cruelly and Unconstitutionally Imprisoning Children and their Families

Enforcing its new “zero tolerance” policy, the Trump administration separated as many as 3,000 immigrant children from their parents at the southern border. This policy was meant to deter families from attempting to cross the border.

The children and their families have been held in internment camps and cages with what lawyers call “inhumane conditions”
Due to negligence, the Trump administration has no plan to reunite all children with their families, even deporting some parents while their children remain detained.

 

Trump Unfit to Be President

Trump shows ‘willful ignorance’ on intelligence.

Citing multiple in-person episodes, intelligence officials say Trump displays what one called “willful ignorance” when presented with analyses generated by intelligence services. The officials describe futile attempts to keep his attention by using visual aids, confining some briefing points to two or three sentences, and repeating his name and title as frequently as possible.

What is most troubling, say these officials and others in government and on Capitol Hill who have been briefed on the episodes, are Trump’s angry reactions when he is given information that contradicts positions he has taken or beliefs he holds. Two intelligence officers even reported that they have been warned to avoid giving the President intelligence assessments that contradict stances he has taken in public.

William Barr Unfit to be Attorney General

Attorney General William Barr has perpetrated a Cover Up to Protect Trump with his 4 page “Barr Report”.

He is behaving like a Trump’s personal attorney by absolving Trump of Crimes in his 4 page Report & defending Trump’s Emergency Funding for the Wall Veto.

 

William Barr Choose Donald Trump Rhetoric Over The Law

For a second day in a row, Atty. Gen. William Barr proved that he is working for President Trump over U.S. Law

 

William Barr has a history of getting it wrong. From designing warrantless surveillance programs to justifying the president’s power to disregard acts of Congress, Barr has advanced dubious legal theories that have been rejected by the courts, Congress, and the public. (Source: aclu.org)

• Mueller’s Report: Barr has stated that he will NOT release Mueller report to the public. What the public would see is BARR’S report in which he could hide and suppress any findings which implicate President Trump in wrong doing. The Public wants to see Mueller’s Report, not Barr’s.  This alone is reason enough NOT to confirm Barr.

• Barr’s Memo: The fact that Barr created a 20 page memo critiquing special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election interference raises questions about whether Barr deliberately sought to curry favor with Trump by taking a position favorable to him in order to secure a top government position. Barr’s statements condemning the Mueller investigation plus his refusal to release Mueller’s Report to the public unfiltered raises concerns that he may have a hidden agenda to Protect Trump, no matter what Mueller’s findings reveal.

 

• William Barr Condoned Obstructing Justice in The Iran-Contra Affair: In 1992, William Barr recommended President George H.W. Bush grant Christmas Eve, “Cover-Up” pardons to six men, including former Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger and former national security adviser Robert McFarlane.

This gave clemency to people who had been officials in the administration of President Ronald Reagan, including former Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger who had been set to go on trial to face charges about lying to Congress.

The independent prosecutor in the case, Lawrence Walsh felt the pardons represented a miscarriage of justice stating; “It demonstrates that powerful people with powerful allies can commit serious crimes in high office, deliberately abusing the public trust without consequences”.

This proves Barr condones putting certain people “above the law” and two (2) Justices Systems; one for the Rich and Powerful from his Party, and another for everyone else.

• Obstruction of justice: The 19-page memo sent to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who was overseeing Mueller’s probe, argued that Trump’s firing of then-FBI Director James Comey in May 2017 did not constitute obstruction of justice.  This is another example of Barr’s flawed thinking and reasoning. It is CLEAR that the primary reason Trump fired Comey was to stop investigations into wrong doing by Trump and his campaign personnel.

William Barr Helped Build America’s Surveillance State

UPDATE: On Feb. 14, 2019, the Senate confirmed William Barr to be the next attorney general of the United States by a vote of 54-45.William Barr, President Trump’s nominee for attorney general, has a history of getting it wrong.

• Barr Was The Godfather Of The NSA’s Bulk Data Collection Program: While serving in the George H.W. Bush administration, Barr helped develop what became a “blueprint” for the National Security Agency’s mass phone surveillance program (Source: aclu.org).  More details about this at aclu.org/blog/national-security/privacy-and-surveillance/william-barr-helped-build-americas-surveillance

The American people are against this. Not one congressman brought this up during Barr’s confirmation hearings.

 

During a staged veto signing ceremony with Trump surrounded by “Yes-Men Trump Praisers”, William Barr behaved like a sycophant instead of the nation’s chief law enforcement officer by defending Trump’s Veto when legal experts have stated Trump declaring a National Emergency for his wall is an abuse of power.

Barr said in the Oval Office that the president’s veto over congresses rebuke of his declaring a national emergency was “clearly authorized under the law and consistent with past precedents” and “the humanitarian and security crisis we have on the border right now is exactly the kind of emergency that presidents are permitted to address under the National Emergencies Act”.

 

Even Fox’s Judge Napolitano says Trump can’t declare national emergency over border wall funding.

Every credible legal expert has stated Trump’s declaring a National Emergency for his Wall is an abuse of power and is illegal. This is another example of why William Barr is unfit to be the United States Attorney General.

William Barr is a Trump Sycophant

 

Bill Barr To Become Caporegime With Own Family Within Trump Crime Family

The Matt Whitaker era has served its purpose. As a transition from Confederate Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Whitaker’s illegal appointment, dull wits, and open contempt for the rule of law served to set the bar exceedingly low for his permanent replacement. That replacement will be William Barr, who was just confirmed by the Senate.

According to the above article, the only job Barr seems committed to executing, will be to protect Trump from the Mueller investigation, without committing abuses of power so obvious that the mainstream media notices the corruption.

“Mary Daly, Barr’s oldest daughter and the director of Opioid Enforcement and Prevention Efforts in the deputy attorney general’s office, is leaving for a position at the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), the Treasury Department’s financial crimes unit, a Justice official said.

Tyler McGaughey, the husband of Barr’s youngest daughter, has been detailed from the powerful US attorney’s office in Alexandria, Virginia, to the White House counsel’s office, two officials said”.

Placing your family members in key positions to protect the president is not what a “normal” attorney general does.

Trump already thinks the White House counsel’s office are his personal lawyers and the attorney general is his personal lawyer, not the country’s. Placing his son-in-law in the White House Counsel’s office suggests that there will be a coordinated strategy between the Justice Department and the WHC to protect the president”.
