If Moscow Mitch turns a blind eye to all this crap he should be impeached.

There, I gave you all the tag lines, no need for AoG. Who I'm really looking for is ed who's probably holed up in his mom's basement waiting for instructions from the dear leader on how to proceed.


Still waiting on our greatest legal mind, AoG, to weigh in.

Poor guy doesn't understand....

Trump, who wanted a TV legal team, is 'distracted' by impeachment trial, source says

https://www.cnn.com/2020/01/18/polit...eam/index.html

Quote:
A source close to the White House who speaks to Donald Trump regularly said the President has appeared "distracted" by the impeachment trial that begins on Tuesday, telling people around him Friday night at Mar-a-Lago that he "can't understand why he is impeached."

"Why are they doing this to me," the source quoted Trump as saying repeatedly.
Trump has been telling associates and allies around him that he wanted a "high profile" legal team that can perform on television, the source said. It's simply who Trump is, the source continued, adding Trump loves having people who are on television working for him.

This in part may explain why Kenneth Starr and Alan Dershowitz were added to the legal team representing the President.

Just in case anybody decides to get a little too honest I guess.

So looks like Trump's "Allstar" legal team is just going with the defense the administration has been using all along:

First Deny Everything
Then claim no wrongdoing was done

Next up:
Blame Obama/Hillary, along with everyone else has done/is doing it.

Doucheawitz’s defense this morning was “even if Trump did abuse the power of his office and obstruct congress, he can’t be impeached for them”

Pop Quiz -- who said it:
"When a man unprincipled in private life desperate in his fortune, bold in his temper, possessed of considerable talents, having the advantage of military habits — despotic in his ordinary demeanour — known to have scoffed in private at the principles of liberty — when such a man is seen to mount the hobby horse of popularity — to join in the cry of danger to liberty — to take every opportunity of embarrassing the General Government & bringing it under suspicion — to flatter and fall in with all the non sense of the zealots of the day — It may justly be suspected that his object is to throw things into confusion that he may ‘ride the storm and direct the whirlwind.’"
If you said, Alexander Hamilton, gives yourself a ceegarrrrr!

Prophetic.

I'm curious what the hell do Republicans think impeachment is for if not for this?

My understanding is that, abuse of power, is precisely what the impeachment article is meant to address. That's why it was writ more loosely beyond simple statutory transgressions.

An elsewhere cited Hamiltonian quote/letter invokes quite clearly what the founding fathers had in mind regarding impeachment. Certainly statutory crimes would be included, but non-statutory "crimes" we're by no means excluded, quite to the contrary.

Remember, impeachment is not a criminal finding. Rather, it is a broader process to ascertain whether a holder of an office abused the powers of that office and thus, should be removed from that office.

Criminal culpability is an entirely different process, one that Trump, regardless of any impeachment outcome, ought to fear more.
