[Zero Hedge] Rudy Giuliani is not only willing to testify in President Trump's Senate impeachment trial, he wants to "do demonstrations" in order to outline what he described as a "series of criminal acts" involving "the highest levels of the Obama administration," adding that Democrats Adam Schiff and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will go down in history like Joe McCarthy when people "calm down and watch this carefully."
"What I learned is the corruption in Ukraine is vast, it's extensive, it highly involves the Democratic party - not just in 2016 but for many years," the former New York City mayor said at Trump's New Year's Eve party at Mar-a-Lago in Florida.
"When the full scope of what happens in Ukraine comes out, there are going to be a lot of Americans who participated in the corruption," adding "The Bidens took millions of dollars laundered out of Ukraine, and the only reason they're getting away with it is because you and the press protect them..."
When asked what he discovered, Rudy replied "I'm not going to tell you what I found out until I have a proper forum... but it's devastating," adding "We will figure out the right forum."
"This is expanding, it will turn out to be a series of criminal acts. It will involve the highest levels of the Obama administration. It's the reason the Democratic party is in panic."
"I would testify, I would do demonstrations, I'd give lectures, I'd give summations. Or, I do what I do best, I try the case," adding, with a smile, "I'd love to try the case."
[Zero Hedge] Former US Attorney Joe diGenova told OANN's John Hines that former FBI Director James Comey and former CIA Director John Brennan were "coup leaders" in an attempt to reverse the outcome of the 2016 US election.
DiGenova says the Obama Justice Department was corrupted under Attorneys General Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch, "with the authority and knowledge of then-president" Obama, and that a 'stupid and arrogant' Susan Rice was dumb enough to document his knowledge in a January 20th, 2017 email.
"And you'll never forget, I'm sure, that famous Susan Rice email on inauguration day of Donald Trump, where she sends an email to the file memorializing that there had been a meeting on January 5th with the president of the United States, all senior law enforcement and intelligence officials, where they reviewed the status of Crossfire Hurricane and the president announced - President Obama - that he was sure that everything had been done by the book.
I want to thank Susan Rice for being so stupid and so arrogant to write that email on January 20th because that's exhibit A for Barack Obama - who knew all about this from start to finish, and was more than happy to have the civil rights of a massive number of Americans violated so he could get Donald Trump." -Joe diGenova
Moreover, diGenova says that after "all this stuff involving Trump and Page and Papadopoulos and Michael Flynn," anyone who couldn't see that the "corrupt investigative process of the FBI and DOJ was basically being used to conduct a coup d'état" is an idiot.
The ultimate backstop, Zero (Charlie McCarthy) would have likely signed off on anything put in front of him. Brennan, Clapper, Valjar, the Hildebeest, and others had a plan for the ME. The Orange Man was certainly not a component of the plan.
Look at the freaks that the Dems threw up this past election cycle:
A Chicano nationalist who urged that men be allowed abortions on demand.
A house-flipping former defense attorney for Dow Chemical against women suffering from faulty implants who calls herself an enemy of ciroporations and champion of women-- and who scammed her way into a plum law faculty by falsely claiming to be a Cherokee Indian.
A guy who calls himself Spartacus and tells takes about his imaginary friend Harvey "T-Bone."
A leftier-than-thou fortune-hunting husband of a billionaire realtor, the former punk rocker and current skateboarder, dental exhibitionist with a fetish for "jokes" involving his own feces, who made up a Mexican diminutive nickname to pretend to have Mexican ancestry.
A woman who literally fucked her way into office, a pseudo-progressive former AG known mainly for abuses of power including forcing the re-imprisonment of a man whom her own office has established beyond all doubt was wrongfully convicted - and this woman claims to be a moralistic reformer.
An octogenarian angry socialist who has achieved absolutely nothing in 50 years of backbenching and mayoral gigs in a northern hippie backwater.
Hunter Biden's dad / James Biden's brother.
WTF? Is this really happening? What a complete, utter, total Shitshow.
One more observation: every one of these freaks passed through - one shudders to call them educated - one or more of our elite higher educational institutions. Among this merry band of Shitshow clowns are:
a Harvard faculty member;
a Harvard-educated lawyer;
a Yale lawyer;
a UC Berkeley lawyer;
one undergrad degree each from Stanford, U. Chicago, Columbia and Harvard;
... and finally, the only one not shaped by our prestigious, superior institutions of higher learning is the father of a crack addict whom he helped get into Yale law, the shit-for-brains noggidnik who slept with his brother's widow and used his father's influence to scam millions from corrupt government-linked companies located in two of the most corrupt places on earth.
These are our generation's Best and Brightest. Ponder that.
WTF has happened to our country to produce such a grotesque parade of mendacious, foolish, incompetent clowns?
JRS - Justice Roberts Syndrome
[FoxNews] The circuit court judge overseeing Hunter Biden's paternity case, Don McSpadden, recused himself without reason on Tuesday, just days after a private investigation firm sought to intercede in the case.
[NYPOST] Joe Biden finally backed off his vows to defy any congressional subpoena to testify in the coming impeachment trial, but the sideshow shows yet again how absurd the whole thing’s become.
With Democrats pushing to call witnesses in the Senate trial, some Republicans suggested Biden should testify, too ‐ since President Trump is accused of wrongdoing in pushing for investigations of Joe’s work in Ukraine, and his son Hunter Biden’s profitable dealings there.
Biden was traveling Iowa in his "No Malarkey" campaign bus last Friday when The Des Moines Register asked what he’d do if subpoenaed. The candidate said he’d tell Congress to go whistle ‐ because testifying would mean letting Trump change the subject.
The subpoenas would be "specious" and without "any legal basis," Biden insisted, ignoring the fact that his fellow Democrats have voted to impeach the president (in part) for his dishonoring of congressional demands for testimony.
For the record, Trump had merely invoked executive privilege. The House (as in all such cases, including past impeachment efforts) could have gone to court in a bid to compel the testimony ‐ but it didn’t want to bother, or slow down its rush to a floor vote.
Biden has no executive-privilege excuse, so he got hit with a weekend of bipartisan criticism ‐ and reversed himself, saying he would comply if subpoenaed.
To be fair, Ol’ Joe wasn’t being any sillier than Speaker Nancy San Fran Nan Pelosi Congresswoman-for-Life from the San Francisco Bay Area, born into a family of professional politicians. On-again-off-again Speaker of the House. It's not her fault when they lose, but it's her accomplishment when they win. Noted for her heavily botoxed grimace and occasional senior... uhhh... moments... ‐ who’s still threatening to not actually send the articles of impeachment to the Senate unless it settles on trial procedures that meet her approval.
