In November Chairman of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Ron Johnson (R-WI) blasted Lt. Col Vindman in an 11-page letter written to ranking member of the House Intel Committee Devin Nunes and Rep. Jim Jordan.
Johnson traveled to Ukraine with special envoy Kurt Volker, spoke to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in person and spoke to President Trump about the hold on military aid — unlike all of the ‘witnesses’ Schiff has dragged in to testify using fourth-hand information.
Johnson clearly suggestedVindman was behind the leaks ‘outside his chain of command.’
During his trip to Ukraine Vindman told Ukrainians to ignore President Trump — Vindman actually thinks he is superior to Trump even though he is an inferior official in the intel department.
Vindman, during his closed-door testimony also flatly denied he knew the identity of the whistleblower (Eric Ciaramella); however, it is believed he was the primary source for Eric Ciaramella.
The White House is weighing a plan to dismiss Alexander Vindman from the National Security Council after he testified in President Donald Trump’s impeachment inquiry, preparing to position the move as part of a broader effort to shrink the foreign policy bureaucracy, two people familiar with the matter said.
Any moves would come after the Senate on Wednesday acquitted Trump on a near party-line vote at the conclusion of the two-week impeachment trial. The White House intends to portray any house-cleaning as part of a downsizing of the NSC staff, not retaliation, according to the people.
US President Donald Trump has demanded that House Dems hand over impeachment to the Senate “immediately” so he can have a proper trial, while accusing them of stalling the proceedings.
Trump launched a fresh broadside at Democrats after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi refused to say when she would turn over the articles of impeachment to the Senate, implying it might take a while.
Explaining her decision, Pelosi said that the documents would remain in the House until Democrats are satisfied with how the Republican-majority Senate will handle the trial. Trump argued that Democrats who have been rallying behind the impeachment cause since the beginning of his presidency should have no say in how the trial is managed by the GOP, since they themselves failed to ensure a fair process in the House.
“So after the Democrats gave me no Due Process in the House, no lawyers, no witnesses, no nothing, they now want to tell the Senate how to run their trial,” Trump tweeted, adding that he wants the trial to kick off as soon as possible.
Actually, they have zero proof of anything, they will never even show up. They want out. I want an immediate trial!
The House voted largely along party lines to pass two articles of impeachment on Wednesday evening, but while zero Republicans voted in favor of either article – “abuse of power” and “obstruction of Congress”– two Democrats voted against the first article and three against the second.
Trump argued that the lack of defectors among the GOP shows that “the Republicans have never been so united” while the lack of consensus among Democrats is yet another indicator that their case “is so bad that they don’t even want to go to trial!”
While Pelosi insists that her foot-dragging is all about ensuring the Republicans do not hijack the proceedings, speculation is rife that Democrats are hesitant to move forward with impeachment because its popularity sank among key groups of independent swing voters who can sway the outcome of the presidential election next year.

Within hours of President Trump being impeached by the House, the mainstream media was reporting that Adam Schiff “has declared war” on Mike Pence.
At this time of the year, most Americans are celebrating holidays and spending time with their families, but Adam Schiff continues to be deeply focused on his twisted obsession to take down the Trump administration.
When Rachel Maddow asked him if he was “actively looking at Vice President Mike Pence and his role in this scandal”, Schiff made it quite clear that he has targeted Pence.
Is Schiff doing this because he wants “justice”, or is there some deeper plot afoot?
Before we get into the specifics, let’s talk about a hypothetical scenario in which Nancy Pelosi could actually become the President.
If President Trump is removed from office by the Senate, Vice-President Mike Pence would move into the Oval Office and a replacement for Pence would be nominated.
Alex Jones breaks down the plot to overthrow President Trump during the Senate Trial bypassing the will of the people.
But if Trump and Pence were both impeached and removed from office before a new Vice-President could be nominated and confirmed, then the next in line for the presidency would be Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
In other words, if Trump and Pence were both suddenly out of the picture, Nancy Pelosi would become the President of the United States.
We have never actually seen the speaker of the House become the president in such a manner, and such a scenario would appear to be exceedingly unlikely, but it could hypothetically happen.
Up to now, the efforts by the Democrats to get rid of Trump have not gone well. According to a brand new survey that was just released, only 42 percent of all Americans support removing Trump from office at this point. And it is likely that support for removing Vice-President Pence from office would be even lower.
So why would the Democrats even bother trying?
I certainly can’t explain why Schiff suddenly has such a desire to go after Pence, because it doesn’t seem to be rational. According to the Daily Mail, Schiff has made the decision to declare “war” on Pence…
House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff has declared war on Vice President Mike Pence, barely a week after his panel finished its hearings on the impeachment of President Donald Trump.
As an impeachment vote loomed Wednesday, Schiff demanded Pence’s office declassify documents that he claims could show the vice president knee-deep in the Ukraine scandal that has brought Trump to the brink.
What Schiff is particularly obsessed about is a phone call between Vice-President Pence and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on September 18th.
Pence’s adviser Jennifer Williams listened in on that call, and she testified about it behind closed doors to Schiff’s committee. Her testimony was later classified, and Schiff has been badgering Pence to have it declassified. The following comes from the National Review…
Pence’s Russia adviser Jennifer Williams testified last month about the vice president’s September 18 phone call with Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Schiff requested ten days later that Pence declassify her testimony, contained in a November 26 letter from her lawyer, but Pence last week declined to do so in a letter to Schiff.
On Tuesday, Schiff sent a letter to Pence alleging that the testimony given by Williams “raises profound questions about your knowledge of the President’s scheme to solicit Ukraine’s interference in the 2020 U.S. presidential election”.
In other words, Schiff is inferring that Vice-President Pence “abused his power” just like Trump supposedly did.
During a subsequent appearance on the Rachel Maddow Show, Schiff was specifically asked if he was “actively looking” at Vice-President Pence…
Are you actively looking at Vice President Mike Pence and his role in this scandal? And should we expect further revelations either related to the vice president or related to the other core parts of these allegations that have resulted in this impeachment tonight?
Well, we have acquired a piece of evidence, classified submission by Jennifer Williams, something that she alluded to in her open testimony that in going back and looking through her records, she found other information that was pertinent to that phone call that we asked her about and made that submission. There is nothing that should be classified in that submission but yet, the vice president’s office has said they’re going to assert classification, or it’s classified.
It is not proper to classify something because it would be embarrassing or incriminating, and that summation does shed light on the vice president’s knowledge, and we think the American people should see it. Certainly, any senators in the trial should have access to it.
Schiff has got to realize that his actions are deeply dividing America, and the drama currently unfolding in Washington could set in motion a series of events that could tear this nation apart.
So why is he doing it?
Well, there is always the possibility that he could be so deluded that he actually believes that he is doing the right thing. And if he truly believes that he is seeking to have justice done, then that would help to explain why he just won’t let this thing go.
But the truth is that Schiff’s sick obsession with taking down the Trump administration goes back long before this Ukraine scandal first broke wide open.
Like so many other Democrats, he just can’t stand to see Donald Trump in the White House, and he won’t rest until he is gone for good.
If the Democrats could find a way to get Trump removed from office early next year, that would throw the Republican Party into a state of utter chaos and would give Democrats a massive edge heading into November 2020. And if they could get Mike Pence removed from office early next year as well, that would make it even tougher for the Republican Party.
In the end, maybe that is what all of this is primarily about. Yes, getting Nancy Pelosi into the White House would be a nice side benefit, but maybe what the Democrats really want to do is to keep Trump from winning again in 2020 by any means necessary.
Unfortunately for the Democrats, nothing they are doing is working.
It looks like Trump is going to be acquitted by the Senate, public approval for impeachment has been falling, and Trump now has a lead against all potential Democratic contenders.
If the Democrats had never attempted to remove Trump, they would have had a great chance of winning the White House next November.
But they just couldn’t resist, and so they have set the stage for a major political disaster for the Democratic Party less than a year from now.
This week’s interview with the DOJ IG Michael Horowitz ended in the IG continuing a coverup of Joseph Mifsud and the the FBI Director Wray being caught in a lie. Americans want the truth and transparency and they get this!
When asked about who the infamous Maltese Professor Joseph Mifsud was working for this week, the DOJ IG deferred answering in public:
But Horowitz’s testimony did shed some light on prior reports released by Republican and Democrat leaders in the House and Christopher Wray’s FBI. It turns out that the Republican report from Devin Nunez was totally substantiated while the Democrat report from Adam Schiff was totally destroyed as a total lie:
This also indicates that Christopher Wray’s FBI totally lied along with Schiff and Rep. Nader from New York in claiming that Nunez’s report was a sham when indeed it was the truth.
— — Only hours after President Donald Trump was caught on a live mic saying a controversial, Republican-drafted memo about government surveillance would be released to the public, the FBI says it has “grave concerns” about the memo’s accuracy.
Two weeks ago, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-California, disclosed that his staff had drafted a memo, which many Republicans say accuses the FBI and Justice Department of abusing surveillance capabilities authorized by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act – or FISA. For days, Nunes refused to share the documents with House colleagues.
On Monday, over the objections of Democrats and Trump’s own Justice Department, Republicans on the House panel voted release the memo. And after Tuesday night’s “State of the Union” address, Trump was overheard telling Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C., that he’s “100 percent” behind the release of the memo.
In an unexpected statement Wednesday, the FBI said that before the House vote, the FBI was “provided a limited opportunity to review this memo.”
“As expressed during our initial review, we have grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s accuracy,” the FBI statement said.
Schiff reportedly said at the time:
The lead Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Adam Schiff, recently called the memo a “profoundly misleading set of talking points drafted by Republican staff attacking the FBI and its handling of the investigation.”
It “may help carry White House water, but it is a deep disservice to our law enforcement professionals,” Schiff said.
Also, Rep. Nader reportedly said:
The top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-New York, said he has reviewed the classified source material Nunes’ staff used to craft the memorandum, and “those materials tell a very different story than the conspiracy theory concocted by Chairman Nunes and being repeated in the press.”
Schiff and Nadler are the two characters responsible for the sham impeachment of the President that just took place these past few weeks. This is not the first time they all lied. Probably not the last either.
On Wednesday Democrats FINALLY launched impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump. They dreamed of this day since January 2017 when he was sworn into office.
Nancy Pelosi took the House floor today and delivered a speech on articles of impeachment.
Democrats on Wednesday are voting to impeach President Donald Trump on two charges.
1.) Abuse of power — not a crime, a broad term to smear the president
2.) Obstruction of Congress — not a crime, a made-up term that has never been used ever
They have found no crimes.
Pelosi has no shame.
She only has a lust for power.
For over THREE YEARS Democrats and their mainstream media have harassed, abused, spied on, threatened and attacked this American president.
Democrats used the full power of the US government to spy on Trump and imprison his supporters. They abused his supporters and beat them down in the streets.
Democrats screamed profanities at Trump and ostracized his supporters.
Democrats hate Donald Trump and his supporters more than they love their country.
Democrats detest Trump more than they love truth.
Their impeachment hearings today are a sham and they know it.
But that didn’t stop them from proceeding with their sham impeachment.
Their lust for power stands before all else.
They would gladly ruin any Trump supporter with the same zeal.
Never forget their hatred. Never forget their lust for power.
This is the same hatred they have for this country and for you.
They would gladly destroy anyone who stands in their path.
The Democrats cheered Nancy Pelosi today.
So did Satan.
A Ukrainian oligarch reportedly paid $700,000 to the husband of Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell (D-FL), who sits on the House Judiciary Committee that recently drafted two articles of impeachment against President Trump.
In the two years leading up to Mucarsel-Powell’s election in 2018, her husband Robert Powell made nearly a million dollars working as a lawyer for Ukrainian oligarch Ihor Kolomoisky, who has previously been accused of contract killings and embezzlement.
With Mucarsel-Powell voting to impeach President Trump on Friday, her husband’s lucrative financial ties to the Ukrainian oligarch who is being investigated by Trump’s FBI is an obvious conflict of interest.
Additionally, Kolomoisky has a vendetta against Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who he criticized in the past, saying, “A big scandal may break out,” and that “It may turn out to be a clear conspiracy against Biden.”
Following Mucarsel-Powell’s vote to impeach Trump on Friday, GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel tweeted about the connection, calling it a “double standard.”
Similar to Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden, whose son received $86,000 per month from a Ukrainian gas company under investigation for embezzling state funds, Mucarsel-Powell’s family ties to Kolomoisky is concerning.
Democrats in the House of Representatives are poised to impeach President Trump but not all members are on board, as there are lawmakers in question
A group of President Donald Trump supporters on Monday showed up to Michigan Democratic Rep. Elissa Slotkin’s town hall to protest her decision to vote in favor of impeachment.
Slotkin, who was undecided on impeachment until Monday, after taking the weekend to make up her mind on how she would vote, said she has came to the conclusion that she will vote to impeach Trump after reviewing the two articles of impeachment passed by the House Judiciary Committee.
Slotkin put politics above her constituents — overriding the will of the American people for her own political gain.
Democrats in the House of Representatives are poised to impeach President Trump but not all members are on board, as there are lawmakers in question.
The Daily Caller contacted the offices of all 31 House Democrats from districts that Trump won in 2016 to ask them if they would vote to impeach President Trump, as many have not publicly stated where they stand on impeachment.
Each office was contacted at least three times and all offices were given ample time to respond. Slotkin’s office was one of many who did not respond to multiple inquires.
This comes as a group of House Democrats are reportedly considering censuring the president instead of impeaching him.
A group of about 10 Democratic members of Congress, including New Jersey Rep. Josh Gottheimer, Oregon Rep. Kurt Schrader, New York Rep. Anthony Brindisi, and Utah Rep. Ben McAdams, are all reportedly open to a censure resolution of Trump instead of moving forward with impeachment, according to Politico.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi told reporters on Thursday that Democrats won’t be asking how others plan to vote, and that she is not trying to convince anyone to vote a certain way.
“We’re not whipping this legislation, nor do we ever whip something like this. People have to come to their own conclusions,” she said. “They’ve seen the facts as presented from the Intelligence Committee. They’ve seen the Constitution as they know it. They took an oath to protect and defend it.”
Despite Pelosi’s early reluctance to push for impeachment, there are currently 228 Democrats who have voiced support for impeachment or an impeachment inquiry. Pelosi has said she believes Trump is “goading” Democrats to impeach him because he thinks it will help him fire up his base.
Democrats have continued to send congressional subpoenas to those close to Trump for documents related to the ongoing scandal regarding the president’s phone call with the president of Ukraine — specifically whether Trump asked him to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden in exchange for U.S. military aid. The House Intelligence, Foreign Affairs, and Oversight committees are all investigating Trump, his cabinet members and closest allies.
The House will vote on the articles of impeachment for Trump on Wednesday.
The full House of Representatives is expected to vote on two articles of impeachment on Wednesday.
Speaker Pelosi, serial liar Adam Schiff, Jerrold Nadler and Democrats continue to lose the trust of the American public as they pursue their unprecedented politically motivated, partisan impeachment of President Trump.
There are nearly 3 dozen vulnerable freshman Democrat representatives in Trump districts who may lose their seats if they vote for impeachment.
So far they have been coy when asked what they will do when the time comes to vote on the two articles of impeachment.
Democrat Reps Elissa Slotkin (MI) and Jason Crow (CO) will both vote to impeach Trump.
Slotkin will vote yea on both articles of impeachment, reported Fox News’ Chad Pergram.
Crow, a freshman who is not on the original list of 31 vulnerable Democrats flipped a red seat blue in Colorado’s 6th district, announced he will vote to impeach Trump Sunday night at a town hall.
Democrats changed the rules, stacked the hearings with second-hand and third-hand witnesses, blocked Republicans from their day of witnesses, cut off Republicans from any decisions or requested witnesses, blocked Republicans and the White House from interviewing their original “whistleblower” Eric Ciaramella who is linked to Schiff, John Brennan, Susan Rice and Joe Biden.
Democrats blocked the White House from confronting their accuser, interrogating their accuser and providing witnesses – a basic right of every American citizen.
The abuse from the Judiciary Committee continued as the panel released a 169-page report in the dead of the night Monday alleging President Trump committed criminal bribery and wire fraud.
The report will accompany the two very broad articles of impeachment that will be voted on this week, likely on Wednesday.
The report taunted President Trump with a prison threat and stated that the federal wire fraud statute imposes a 20 year prison sentence.
The Democrats allege that President Trump engaged in a months-long scheme to interfere in the 2020 election by soliciting foreign interference by withholding military aid from Ukraine unless Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky agreed to investigate the Biden crime family.
Trump Impeachment is all about covering for Obama-era crimes including billions of dollars laundered, extortion and bribery.
Marc writes: “After three years in which Democrats accused President Trump of a host of criminal acts — from bribery and extortion to campaign finance violations, obstruction of justice, conspiracy and even treason — they have finally introduced articles of impeachment that allege no statutory crimes. In that alone, Trump can claim vindication.”
This comes on the same week Democrat Deep State operatives were caught spying on President Trump’s campaign and admininistration.
These people can burn in hell for what they did to this country.
