Do you have scandal fatigue? I was thinking of setting “Spygate” aside for a while to focus on the next stage in the impeachment farce that’s almost upon us, but then Dan Bongino changed my mind. On Monday he made the point, as I have myself from time to time, that all the scandals --- including impeachment --- involve the same cast of characters. They are all part of the same big hoax, like one of those giant spreading underground fungi –- just different, interconnected ways of taking Trump down. So it’s impossible to look at impeachment without following those who tried to spy on his associates and hurt him during his campaign and transition period. They’re the same people.

I was going to concentrate on an article in POLITICO called “Meet the Legal Minds Behind Trump’s Impeachment,” which really shows how hard Trump’s enemies are trying to get rid of him. This is serious business, and that’s what I had wanted to focus on. But Bongino has pointed out something else from that article: that a particular member of this impeachment team happens to have been involved in the ‘deep state’ shenanigans as well. I guess the term is “overlap.” There's a LOT of overlap.

The person is Mary McCord. A paragraph in the POLITICO story reads: “‘I think people do see that this is a critical time in our history,’ said Mary McCord, a former DOJ official who helped oversee the FBI’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and is now listed as a top outside counsel for the House in key legal fights tied to impeachment. ‘We see the breakdown of the whole rule of law. We see the breakdown in adherence to the Constitution and also constitutional values...That’s why you’re seeing lawyers come out and being very willing to put in extraordinary amounts of time and effort to litigate these cases,’ she said.”

Indeed. Of course, my understanding is that they’re being handsomely paid, if not by taxpayers then by somebody with deeeeep pockets who wants Trump out every bit as much as they do. So we see that the same former DOJ official who was working with the FBI, apparently on “Crossfire Hurricane,” has been working with Adam Schiff’s House Intel Committee on the impeachment “inquiry.”

Yesterday I pointed out the problems with Intel Committee Inspector General (ICIG) Michael Atkinson, the official who changed the rules about second-hand information and then accepted the hearsay (and, as it turns out, fictional) “whistleblower” complaint form submitted by the semi-anonymous Eric Ciaramella and passed it along as legitimate instead of dispensing with it. Today, I find that Mary McCord worked with Atkinson in the National Security Division of the DOJ. Atkinson was the lawyer for the head of the National Security Division, John Carlin, who just happens to be Robert Mueller’s former chief of staff AND the official who supposedly reviewed the Woods procedures signifying that the FISA warrant application to spy on Carter Page contained verified information. We all know now that this was a joke, that the application was based entirely on an unverified work of fiction called the Steele “dossier.”

FEATURED STORY

Quote of the Day

By Mike Huckabee

Stephen Kruiser of PJ Media had this observation about Cory Booker dropping out of the Democratic Presidential race:

“Now their diversity street cred is a seventy-year-old patrician northeastern grandma who was once a Native American in her mind.”

https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/the-morning-briefing-democratic-primary-field-moves-ever-whiteward/

That’s great, except he forgot to mention that she’s also a millionaire.  That's sort of diverse in that it sets her and the two old, white male millionaires apart from the two old, white male billionaires who are still in the race.

##Appellation##, I wanted to make sure you also read these comments:

Interesting: Arnold Cusmariu at American Thinker explains why Senate Republicans should not accept the House articles of impeachment (which would imply that they accept their legitimacy.) Instead, President Trump should appeal to the Supreme Court to dismiss them as “poisoned fruit” of an illegitimate process that deprived him of his due process rights in multiple ways.

https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2020/01/impeachment_articles_must_be_challenged_in_court.html

It would be ironic if Trump could get the Court to throw out the House's impeachment for violating his due process rights, considering one of their articles of impeachment is for “contempt of Congress” simply for wanting to exercise his due process right to challenge Congressional subpoenas in federal court.  The circular logic is as dizzying as listening to AOC explain how she'll pay for the Green New Deal.

And Then There Were…Oh, heck, even I can’t keep track! New Age guru Marianne Williamson and Sen. Cory Booker have both suspended their Presidential campaigns.  I’ll miss hearing all the amusingly wacky, coo-coo policy ideas.  I’ll also miss Marianne Williamson.

    What excuse are Collins, Murkowski, Portman and Rommey using to go against Trump? Will their states vote them out?
