    Pelosi Schedules Emergency Meeting With House Dems to Discuss Impeachment ......

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has called an emergency meeting with Democrats Wednesday morning at 9 a.m. to discuss their demands for impeachment proceedings against President Trump, per Fox News.


    "The pressure is actually real," as Dana Perino noted.


    Pelosi just had a closed door meeting with members of Congress in which she reiterated that now is not the time to consider impeachment - it's time for them to turn to other issues. You know, issues that got them voted in in the first place.


    Still, she faced push back from her own leadership team and from some of the more progressive lawmakers.....snip~

    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said Tuesday that most House Democrats aren’t demanding immediate impeachment but aim to show the country that President Donald Trump is hiding something big.

    “The big issue that I think needs to be made to the American people is that this president is conducting one of the biggest cover-ups of any administration in the history of the United States,” Hoyer, D-Md., told reporters Tuesday. “He does not want to tell the American people the facts they need to know to make rational judgments, or that their representatives in Congress need to know to make rational legislative decisions. There are a lot of people who agree with me.”


    Hoyer made the remarks shortly after the House Judiciary Committee gaveled in for a hearing at which former White House counsel Don McGahn refused to appear, prompting many pro-impeachment Democrats to clamor for action......snip~

    LMAO.....Hoyer fell for the okie doke.



    DOJ: No, Nadler, Former White House Counsel Is Not Legally Required to Testify For Your Mueller Do-Over....


    "The House Judiciary Committee has issued a subpoena to try and force Mr. McGahn to testify again. The Department of Justice has provided a legal opinion stating that, based on long-standing, bipartisan, and Constitutional precedent, the former Counsel to the President cannot be forced to give such testimony, and Mr. McGahn has been directed to act accordingly," she continued. "This action has been taken in order to ensure that future Presidents can effectively execute the responsibilities of the Office of the Presidency."


    Shortly before the White House announcement, the Department of Justice issued a 15-page memo explaining the legal precedent for why the Trump administration is capable of keeping McGahn from testifying.


    "We provide the same answer that the Department of Justice has repeatedly provided for nearly five decades: Congress may not constitutionally compel the President's senior advisors to testify about their official duties. This testimonial immunity is rooted in the constitutional separation of powers and derives from the President's independence from Congress," the memo states, citing actions by former Clinton Attorney General Janet Reno and others. "The immunity of the President's immediate advisors from compelled congressional testimony on matters related to their official responsibilities has long been recognized and arises from the fundamental workings of the separation of powers. This immunity applies to the former White House Counsel. Accordingly, Mr. McGahn is not legally required to appear and testify about matters related to his official duties as Counsel to the President.".....snip~

    Now we know why Pelosi called the emergency Meeting.



    Popcorn: Dems Clash in Closed Meeting, Members of Pelosi's Leadership Team Revolt on Impeachment



    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is once again struggling to maintain control over her new majority's caucus -- even battling dissension among her own leadership team. Pelosi has already faced multiple rank-and-file insurrections on GOP-led motions to recommit, caved to pressure and lost a battle over condemning a freshman member's anti-Semitism, decided to ignore her chamber's budgeting requirements in order to sidestep endless intra-party spending battles, and recently watched as her party was forced to shelve (since revived) DREAM Act legislation due to internal squabbling over extending amnesty to people with criminal records. Her latest headache is on impeachment, which she's opposed for months on tactical grounds.


    More details, via Politico:


    House Democratic leaders sparred internally on Monday over whether to begin an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump, with Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her allies rejecting the call to move forward for now, according to multiple sources. Reps. David Cicilline of Rhode Island, Jamie Raskin of Maryland and Joe Neguse of Colorado — all members of Democratic leadership — pushed to begin impeachment proceedings during a leadership meeting in Pelosi's office, said the sources. Pelosi andReps. Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut, Ben Ray LujŠn of New Mexico, Hakeem Jeffries of New York and Cheri Bustos of Illinois — some of her key allies — rejected their calls, saying Democrats' message is being drowned out by the fight over possibly impeaching Trump...


    While Pelosi and her top Democrats argue that a majority of House Democrats don't want to impeach Trump, she is under growing pressure from some of her most hard-line members to move more forcefully against the president...Several members and aides said an impeachment inquiry resolution could be introduced in the House Judiciary Committee in the next several days, spurring more Democratic debate over how to respond to Trump. During the Steering and Policy Committee meeting, Cohen said President Bill Clinton faced impeachment proceedings “over sex” while Trump is “raping the country,” according to two sources in the room. Cohen later confirmed his remarks
    .


    Though Pelosi repeatedly claimed that this calculus is not about politics, according to multiple accounts, it...very much looks like it's about politics. From the same story: "Impeaching Trump, or even beginning an impeachment inquiry against Trump, is a huge risk for Democrats. Pelosi and her allies complain the anti-Trump fervor is overwhelming Democratic messaging on their agenda, and claim that most of the rank and file is against the move. Democratic leaders also fear that impeaching Trump in the House, only to see him acquitted by the Senate, would strengthen his hand in 2020." If impeachment were more popular, didn't interfere with other agenda items, and didn't threaten to strengthen the president's political standing -- all three of which are purely political considerations -- would Democratic leadership be singing a different tune? As it stands, it's quite obvious that Pelosi and those on her side of this escalating argument are watching the polls carefully. They all show lopsided opposition to impeachment:.....snip~

    Evidently the Democrats want to focus on impeachment because they don’t have any candidate who they think can beat Trump running on the issues.

    The impeachment thing is pure insanity.

    Biden is so desperate that he tried to say Obama/Biden was responsible for the booming economy and lowest unemployment. Even CNN was rolling their eyes with that one.


    But Pelosi just can't keep the New Breed of leftists in check.

    They're 10 years late with this rah-rah. They are toast.
    You will rue forever that you ever supported the post-2007 democrat party.
