Due Process Parody

We’re told the House Intelligence Committee impeachment hearing isn’t a legal proceeding. But it’s a political one and the rules of due process don’t seem to apply.

Due Process

With that in mind, here are a few of Chairman Schiff’s rules for the hearing:

No Trump lawyers or White House counsel are permitted.

Trump may not confront his accuser (the whistleblower). And the whistle blower won’t testify. That’s because Schiff says his testimony would be redundant and unnecessary .

Unlike Trump, apparently Hunter Biden is above the law and any investigation of him would be considered a sham. So Hunter won’t be testifying either.

And, finally, outing the whistleblower is strictly forbidden and will be be considered an ethics violation.

 

Impeachment Express Secret Testimony

Past impeachment inquiries were handled by the House Judiciary Committee. But Nancy Pelosi snatched that job from Jerry Nadler and gave it to Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff. Now he’s taking whistle blower testimony in secret and the Impeachment Express is on track to take down Trump.

Pelosi runs the railroad but she’s a reluctant impeacher.  She says nobody comes to Congress to impeach a president,

Well, almost nobody. And now Nancy’s on board to impeach The Motherf***r

Adam Schiff Parody Parade

House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff riffed to Congress about President Trump’s phone chat with Ukrainian President Zelensky. You can catch his act here on YouTube. He doesn’t get rolling until the 4:15 mark. Schiff explained it was a parody. Here’s what Trump actually had to say.

Democrat Congresswomen Cheer Trump’s Speech

I never expected President Trump’s speech to have the new Democratic congresswomen high fiving and chanting “U.S.A., U.S.A.” But he did. The president brought the ladies in white to their feet by proclaiming there are more women in Congress now than ever before. (He didn’t mention that they’re Democrats.) Then they quickly sat down when he promised to build the wall. But back up when he announced plans for paid family leave. And back down again when he slammed late term abortion.

State of the Union

Nancy Pelosi seemed to conduct the State of the Union performance from her perch behind Trump. She showed boredom by reading from oversized sheets of paper while he spoke. And when he blasted political investigations she frowned at the back of his head. She also tamped down outbursts from the Democratic congresswomen. And when it was time to stand up and cheer she inscrutably clapped her hands like a seal.

Wall Fall

Pelosi’s a pro at politics. Trump, not so much. He ended the government shutdown for 3 weeks and got nothing in return but a promise to negotiate a wall Democrats don’t want and have no incentive to build. President Trump offered to take the blame for the shutdown and Nancy was glad to give it to him. Hard. His base is bummed.

“[Speaker Nancy] Pelosi ordered everything off the menu and left Trump hanging with the bill,” one Trump ally texted.
