impeachment hearings

The Real Purpose of the Nadler Impeachment Hearing

David Catron, The American Spectator

The most deadly GOP attack on the legitimacy of the Judiciary Committee hearing was a speech that Nadler himself delivered in 1998. Several Republicans read excerpts: “There must never be a narrowly voted impeachment or an impeachment substantially supported by one of our major political parties and largely opposed by the other. Such an impeachment would lack legitimacy.” But such considerations are now irrelevant to the Democrats. Wednesday’s hearing was an attempt to hide their hyper-partisan coup beneath a canopy of pseudo-constitutional camouflage. In the end it will fail. The polls show that the voters already know what they’re up to. Trump will remain in office and be easily reelected.

Lady professor and the Lonely Hearts Club

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

In her loneliness, the lady professor (and lonely school marm Pamela Karlan) also declared that President Trump’s call for investigating corruption in Ukraine was worse than the crimes that nearly got President Nixon impeached. Because, she said, Mr. Nixon’s crimes were domestic and Mr. Trump’s supposed “crimes” were abroad. Whatever. As if eating mail-order turkey and sleeping with Mueller reports isn’t sad enough, the lonely lady professor later attacked the 13-year-old son of President Trump to make the point that — well, to make the point that she really despises President Trump. There was no other point. Please. Somebody call the emergency lonely hearts line and get this woman some help.
