  1. The House will be starting their show trials, all as public opinion for impeachment tanks.

    “House Holding Public Impeachment Hearings Next Week As Public Support for Impeachment Tanks

    Support for impeachment has dropped 4 points since the closed-door inquiries began.”

    —–

    “Last week, the House voted (mostly) along party lines to approve impeachment inquiry rules.

    According to the Morning Consult, support for impeachment has dropped 4 points since the closed-door inquiries began.

    Morning Consult explains further:

    As House Democrats begin to release transcripts of closed-door testimony and prepare for public hearings as part of their impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump, public support for impeaching the president has fallen.

    The latest Morning Consult/Politico poll found that 47 percent of voters favor the House voting to impeach Trump, down 4 percentage points from the share that backed it in an Oct. 11-13 poll. At the same time, 43 percent of voters oppose the House impeaching Trump, statistically in line with figures from the four other polls conducted on the issue since House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced her support for the impeachment inquiry in late September. Each of the surveys have a 2-point margin of error.

    The Nov. 1-3 poll comes after the House’s 232-196 vote to lay out the rules for its impeachment inquiry, which is moving to a public phase following weeks of private testimony before a bipartisan audience of members of Congress. House Republicans were united in their opposition to the measure, which empowers the House Intelligence Committee to take the lead on the public-facing part of the investigation into Trump’s pressure on Ukraine to investigate his political rivals.

    Forty-two percent of voters — including 48 percent of Democrats, 42 percent of Republicans and 35 percent of independents — said they’d seen, read or heard “a lot” about the House voting to formalize its impeachment inquiry, making it one of the more widely penetrating events involving Ukraine and impeachment since news of the whistleblower complaint from a U.S. intelligence official first emerged.”

    “Firm Hired by Ukraine’s Burisma Tried to Use Hunter Biden as Leverage, Documents Show

    Blue Star mentioned him to get State Department meetings and burnish image, emails indicate”

    A consulting firm hired by Burisma Group mentioned that former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden’s son served on the Ukrainian gas company’s board so the firm could leverage a meeting with the State Department, according to documents and a former U.S. official.

    The documents—email exchanges between State Department staff members made public this week—show that the consulting firm, Washington-based Blue Star Strategies, used Hunter Biden’s name in a request for a State Department meeting and then mentioned him again.

  3. I suspect every president, including George Washington, has practiced quid pro quo in some direction.
    I am embarrassed for our nation that we have such dunces in our legislature.

  4. I see on FoxNews that Republicans are thinking of calling up Hunter Biden in any impeachment trial.
    If I were a crooked politician, I would be very careful about stirring this nasty pot.
    But when sheer hatred is the driver, anything is liable to happen.
    Likely will.

  7. It’s coming……

    More of Ricky’s heroes are about to be exposed as the traitorous frauds they are, and it will be ‘Worse Than You Can Imagine’ and ‘Careers Will Be Ruined’

    Makes me smile, because they deserve no less and it should be way more. 🙂

    https://www.redstate.com/elizabeth-vaughn/2019/11/07/digenova-toensing-fisa-abuse-report-will-worse-can-imagine-careers-will-ruined/

    “Fox Business News’ Lou Dobbs interviewed former U.S. Attorney Joe DiGenova and his wife, former DOJ Deputy Attorney General, Victoria Toensing, on Wednesday night and heard some stunning predictions about the long-awaited DOJ Inspector General’s report on FISA abuse during the 2016 election.

    Lou Dobbs asks if we can ever expect to see it.

    Toensing tells him, “You are going to see it, Lou.” but she can’t give him a date and does not offer any predictions. She says, “But I can tell you this, we have darn good sources for this. It’s going to be very bad for the people in the Obama administration. My source said to me, it’s going to be worse than you can imagine.”

    ——

    “DiGenova replies:

    I would say explosive and I would say for people at the highest levels of the FBI and at the highest levels at the Justice Department, more important the Justice Department, it’s going to be devastating. It’s going to ruin careers. It’s going to make people have bar problems…

    Because what’s clear now we know is that the senior levels of the Obama Justice Department were complicit in knowingly submitting materially false applications to the FISA court for an illegitimate counterintelligence purpose, not for a legitimate purpose but to spy on Americans for political purposes. It really will end up being the beginning of the greatest political scandal in history. And it’s being held up partially because of John Durham’s new grand jury which by the way exists for one reason and one reason only because people are going to be indicted.

    Dobbs asks if the report is being “held up because of the vast scope of the investigation.”

    Toensing: Well, it’s being expanded, Lou, because he’s gone back into whole other areas. He’s gone back to the origins of the investigation. For those of us who know this business, if you’re in counterintelligence and you get word that a George Papadopoulos has said he heard that the Russians have something, you go knock on his door within a week and ask him about it and have him give you the information. They didn’t do that. They didn’t do that at all. They disobeyed all the rules of a counterintelligence investigation.

    DiGenova: And it’s expanded because originally, Barr wanted Durham to just look at the beginnings of Cross Fire Hurricane. But then, what they discovered, They found from the Devin Nunes experience at the White House in March of 2017 that there had been massive, massive unmasking of Americans for political purposes and that this information was given and leaked to the press. And by the way, the Michael Flynn/Ambassador Kislyak call, which was leaked to David Ignatius of the [Washington] Post is, in fact, the subject of one of the criminal investigations because that leak is a 20-year felony.

    Toensing: And I’ve got another idea for John Durham. He ought to bring in Mark Zaid before the grand jury and ask him how he knew that CNN was going to be a part of it. Was he talking to James Clapper? And did he know that Clapper was going to leak the dossier?”

    Now why does that name ring a bell?

    Because he’s Shifty’s “whistleblower”‘s attorney mentioned above in another story. What a tangled web these deceivers have weaved.

  8. I’ve heard many similar versions of Nikki’s story. Her thread is interesting. I wish her well in her conversations with her parents. However, I would advise her to only talk to her parents about the grandbabies.

  9. You don’t have to “like” Trump to think he is a good president. I “liked” Jimmy Carter. One of the finest men we had.
    I would love to have him as a friend. I prefer Trump for president.
