On Tuesday, White House counsel Pat Cipollone sent the letter Trump had promised to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and congressional Democratic committee chairs Adam Schiff (Intelligence), Eliot Engel (Foreign Affairs) and Elijah Cummings (Oversight) informing them that the administration will not cooperate with the illegitimate and constitutionally invalid “impeachment inquiry” going on right now. There will be no compliance, the letter said, unless the House makes it official by holding a full floor vote to approve such an inquiry and unless basic principles of due process and separation of powers are followed. The letter states that “this is “an unauthorized impeachment inquiry that conflicts with all historical precedent...”

“Consistent with the duties of the President of the United States, and in particular his obligation to preserve the rights of future occupants of his office, President Trump cannot permit his Administration to participate in this partisan inquiry under these circumstances.” The White House will be providing no witnesses, no documents, no kidding.

The letter reads in part: “The invalid ‘impeachment inquiry’ plainly seeks to reverse the election of 2016 and to influence the election of 2020.” It calls the impeachment effort “a naked political strategy that began the day he [Trump] was inaugurated, and perhaps even before.”

“Perhaps”?? Here Cipollone is a master of understatement. But his letter is magnificent; you’ll want to read the entire thing, all eight pages...

https://politicaldig.com/read-the-white-house-letter-to-pelosi-rejecting-cooperation-in-impeachment-inquiry/

Note in particular the quotes from none other than Jerrold Nadler (on pages 5-6, also footnote 5 on page 3), who has certainly changed his tune since Trump was elected. Likewise, the House Intelligence Committee as led by Adam Schiff seems to be making up its own rules, breaking with precedent set by history’s other cases of impeachment. Both sides are supposed to have the ability to gather and present evidence, and that’s not happening here. Unbelievably, Trump’s side doesn’t get to put evidence into the record or to call or cross examine witnesses. The so-called “whistleblowers” are being used anonymously and might testify in secret. Democrats conduct hearings behind closed doors so they can cherry-pick what they want to leak.

They also demand communications between Trump and his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, as if attorney-client privilege did not exist.

Ranking House Intelligence Committee member Devin Nunes said it best: “...As someone who has been in all these meetings, I think it was described today as a ‘kangaroo court,’ and that’s probably being nice.”

‘Kangaroo court’ sums it up perfectly. In fact, I have a new name for Adam Schiff: let’s call him ‘Captain Kangaroo.’ I’m pretty confident Democrats will “’roo” the day he convened it.

But for now, they’re thinking they have no choice but to move full-speed-ahead on impeachment or something, as the expression goes, “close enough for government work,” because they’re scared to death of what U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the “Trump/Russia” counterintelligence investigation is going to turn up. That’s even more so as of Tuesday, when we learned that Durham’s investigation has been “expanded” in scope.

As reported by FOX News, “Mr. Durham has expanded his investigation and is adding agents and resources, according to multiple senior administration officials.” Whereas it was originally set up to investigate from the beginning of the probe through Election Day, it has now been extended, based on Durham’s findings up to this point, from spring of 2016 through spring of 2017, the time when Robert Mueller was named special counsel by deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein (and that appointment is also undergoing greater scrutiny). That time period would include the January 5 Obama White House meeting with intelligence officials about “Trump/Russia,” Comey’s post-election briefing of the President-elect at Trump Tower on one of the most salacious aspects of the Steele “dossier,” the leaking of that story to The New York Times and the decision to name a special counsel.

Of course, Durham’s investigation has also gone international, with information-gathering that took both Durham and Attorney General William Barr to the U.K. and Italy and put them in contact with Australian authorities. It’s outside the U.S. that our own spies could most easily circumvent laws to spy on Americans. Former CIA Director John Brennan has said he doesn’t understand the “predicate” for this investigation into actions taken by our own intel community, but he is lying. He knows good and well what it is; we can start with the warrant that was fraudulently obtained by the FBI –- and renewed three times –- to spy on associates of Trump’s campaign.

Investigative reporter Catherine Herridge says that, based on her two decades of experience covering intelligence and law enforcement, the expansion of Durham’s probe indicates to her that he has likely found evidence of criminal wrongdoing. “By reputation,” she says, “Durham is not a prosecutor to ask for more help if there is simply no ‘there’ there.”

Her FOX News colleagues Bret Baier and Jake Gibson also reported that, contrary to what Mueller has said, he WAS vying (unsuccessfully) for the FBI director position –- left open by Trump’s firing of Comey just a week earlier –- when he met with Trump in 2017. It’s as we thought: Mueller was appointed to investigate the man who had passed him over for that position. Normally that would not be happening; it’s just too big a conflict of interest. He interviewed for the job of Trump’s FBI director after he had already confirmed with Rod Rosenstein that if he didn’t get the job, he would be appointed special counsel to investigate Trump (!).

Regardless of the mess the House is in, the Senate is in a position to do some cleaning up. Thankfully, Lindsay Graham, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has invited Giuliani to testify before Congress about his work on behalf of his client, investigating Ukraine’s role in our 2016 election. (Note: regarding Ukraine, investigative reporter John Solomon has brand new developments on the investigation into Burisma Holdings, the company that put Hunter Biden on its board of directors and paid his firm perhaps as much as $220,000 a month; we’ll take this up in detail tomorrow.)

Keep in mind, one reason for all the screaming coming from the left in Washington –- and this phony “impeachment” –- is that Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report on FISA abuse is reportedly coming out within the next two weeks. We complain about the delay, but the reason it has taken so long is no doubt that new information just kept turning up. In the meantime, it’s good to know that Trump and his attorneys are pushing back –- hard.

    It is my opinion based on the facts, that this 'coup" started on election night November 2016. It is a fact that Schiff, Waters, Green, Tlaib, Cummings, Schumer, Brennan, Comey, Clinton, Strozok, and Hussein Obama, all have demonstrated their appalling disdain for the rule of law and the American people.

    Turncoats like Flake, Murkowski, Collins, Romney, Kasich, Ryan, Walsh, and Boehner, are equally Anti American, and spineless sell outs, not worthy to be Republicans.

    The aforementioned democrats should all be tried for treason in a military court, Held without representation in GITMO, and hopefully hung.
    It should also be noted that organizations like CNN, MSNBC, and all other individuals that participate in this attempted overthrow attempt also be imprisoned and held in military prison as the law dictates.

    Dear Governor Huckabee - For the record, calling Shifty Schiff Captain Kangaroo is honor he does not deserve.

    Some years back, I recall watching a talk show host interview Lee Marvin (the Actor) asking about Marvin's experience a s a young US Marine at Iwo Jima. Marvin was very modest, however, he noted that the bravest man he ever met was a young marine non-commissioned officer who bravely stood tall, with bullets whizzing past him as he encouraged other marines to move forward on the beaches of Iwo Jima. Marvin noted that this man, now, was also an actor. He stated that we all know him as Captain Kangaroo.

If the President of the United States does something wrong there isn't an American who would not want them to be investigated. The Democrats have not done 1 thing to help the citizens of the U.S. They have been caught time after time doing u underhanded possibly committed treason and yet nothing happens to them. They have to be held accountable.

They are going to take out a President, elected by the people, according to the constitution by any means possible. Yet, I have many friends who would support that, they hate him so much.

    Take heart, a lot hated Abe, too. We forget he was vilified by many. I just wish POTUS has a better moral base, like Abe, in his character. There is a difference between acting ethically and being moral.

    Don’t disrespect Captain Kangaroo by comparing Shifty Schiff with him. Captain Kangaroo was a World War II veteran.

    Thank You Gov. Huckabee for explaining all that is going on in D.C. in a trustworthy and understandable way - (and without any "PC" involvement)! God bless you & family for this!

    It is my opinion based on the facts, that this 'coup" started on election night November 2016. It is a fact that Schiff, Waters, Green, Tlaib, Cummings, Schumer, Brennan, Comey, Clinton, Strozok, and Hussein Obama, all have demonstrated their appalling disdain for the rule of law and the American people.

    Turncoats like Flake, Murkowski, Collins, Romney, Kasich, Ryan, Walsh, and Boehner, are equally Anti American, and spineless sell outs, not worthy to be Republicans.

    The aforementioned democrats should all be tried for treason in a military court, Held without representation in GITMO, and hopefully hung.
    It should also be noted that organizations like CNN, MSNBC, and all other individuals that participate in this attempted overthrow attempt also be imprisoned and held in military prison as the law dictates.

    Dear Governor Huckabee - For the record, calling Shifty Schiff Captain Kangaroo is honor he does not deserve.

    Some years back, I recall watching a talk show host interview Lee Marvin (the Actor) asking about Marvin's experience a s a young US Marine at Iwo Jima. Marvin was very modest, however, he noted that the bravest man he ever met was a young marine non-commissioned officer who bravely stood tall, with bullets whizzing past him as he encouraged other marines to move forward on the beaches of Iwo Jima. Marvin noted that this man, now, was also an actor. He stated that we all know him as Captain Kangaroo.

    100% agree---bring it to a vote so the minority has the same rights and privileges of the majority! Like the left always says-NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW---well that should apply to the left too!

    A magnificent strong letter, completely legal, and needs only one added reason relative to expected subpoenas. When received at the W.H. they should be marked: "returned for suppository us only" and sent back to the senders!

    I pray when all this info comes out, that the bad dems will be told, up against the wall & spread them. Be taken off in handcuffs in a grand parade for the news. And then all those worthless reporters will be like a whimpering puppy with their tails between their legs. Then the grand moment, they realize they were played the fools & backed the wrong team.

    The dems are trying to row a boat with one oar. It used to be kind of funny, but the fun is over. These traitors need to be put away. Fortunately the American people are not buying it, but for some reason, they keep trying to sell it. They have reached a scary level of desperation and insanity. If they think I'm giving up my guns, especially now, they really ARE crazy!!! They are out of their minds.

    I sincerely hope we are close to some indictments of these sleazy corrupt government officials. The left needs to be stopped. If the President of the United States does something wrong there isn't an American who would not want them to be investigated. The Democrats have not done 1 thing to help the citizens of the U.S. They have been caught time after time doing u underhanded possibly committed treason and yet nothing happens to them. They have to be held accountable.

    So, Nancy Pelosi, as one person. believes she has the power, by decree, to override Executive Privilege and Separation of Powers? Seems that a full vote by the House is needed for that.

    The demoncraps are, like the one they serve, overplaying their hand. YAY for President Trump and his attorneys! Personally I hope that party destroys itself so that American can (perhaps if they aren't too lazy) start another party that will actually be willing to work FOR and WITH the people to make America a better place.

    I continue to pray for our President, his family, and for all those in support of revealing the truth. May the light continue to shine on the darkness and reveal the Beast for what he really is, so that people’s eyes will finally be opened to the Truth.

    Wow! I am glad to see the GOP fighting back. No more Mr. nice guy. I wish the President did things differently as far as the surface stuff. But what the Dems are doing is so obvious. They are going to take out a President, elected by the people, according to the constitution by any means possible. Yet, I have many friends who would support that, they hate him so much.

    Take heart, a lot hated Abe, too. We forget he was vilified by many. I just wish POTUS has a better moral base, like Abe, in his character. There is a difference between acting ethically and being moral.

    WAY TOO GO PRESIDENT TRUMP! Finally sticking up to the lawless Democrats who hold themselves accountable for nothing and everyone else for everything.
