House Speaker Pelosi dispatched a procession to the Senate to deliver a 1,426 word leather-bound document containing articles of impeachment. The Speaker and her acolytes hope to frogmarch President Trump out of the White House.

But, as The Washington Post reports:

For all the pageantry, both Johnson and Clinton’s impeachments ended in acquittal. Trump’s probably will too…

Standard Christmas Gift Return Cartoon

This is the time of the year cartoonists like to head over to the gift return department. Just draw a dissatisfied customer returning some unwanted political gift and presto, it’s back to the holiday schnapps.

My offering this year concerns Nancy Pelosi’s gifts of Christmas present and Christmas past.

The House impeached President Trump just in time for Christmas 2019. Ten years ago The Senate rushed Obamacare through on Christmas Eve. Speaker Pelosi said they had to pass the bill to find out what’s in it. But they’re still not sure.

In 2012The Supreme Court upheld The Affordable Care Act by calling the individual mandate to buy insurance a tax. But in 2017 Congress reduced the mandate to zero. So last month an appeals court ruled that if there’s no revenue there’s no tax, and killed the mandate. Then the court sent the case back to a judge in Texas who says with no mandate there can be no Obamacare. Got that?

Cheers!

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.

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

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.
