WARNING - Pelosi and Dems' Sinister Plans to Impeach Trump via the "process", including vastly expanded powers to Issue Contempt Charges Against Trump & His Cabinet without Hearings and Massive Fines @sidneypowell1 theconservativetreehouse.com/2019/06/09/dev…
The Lawfare alliance of legal advisers, most of whom are Obama lawyers & loyalists, are writing specific language into the vote of Contempt Agst AG Barr that will automatically allow more contempt votes against the Trump administration without hearings. Unprecedented in Congress
"The contempt vote will be written so that any arbitrary Trump administration official can also be held in contempt, without a committee vote, and thereby initiate a civil lawsuit against the executive officer that will have to be defended in court."
If they can win a civil award, by carefully selecting a DC Judge, Pelosi and Nadler can start issuing civil fines for contempt against individual cabinet members. Adam Schiff has previously stated his recommended target amount would be $25,000 per day/per person.
The Dems are using Alinsky tactics to weaponize the impeachment process against POTUS - not in the constitutional sense of the process (high crimes and misdemeanors); but rather weaponizing the process –as a tool itself– to target the executive office & diminish the presidency
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler hired Lawfare Group members to become committee staff.
Speaker Pelosi sets up a new, much narrower, oversight priority for Chairman Elijah Cummings; specifically to tailor oversight to the White House and President Donald Trump. This sets up the system for him to target Pres. Trump, his family, & all members of the executive branch.
Pelosi also changed the rules on depositions, allowing witnesses to be questioned by Dems alone, EXCLUDING any GOP in the questioning. Schiff was also given expanded powers to schedule depositions without regard for schedules. He'll hold them in contempt if they don't show.
Pelosi also changed the rules so that her committee chairs have 60 days to change their rules in case any Republicans develop immediate defensive plans to push back against the weaponization of these oversight committees.
Pelosi also changed the rules so that she can essentially set up an internal House division of lawyers, her own "Legislative Branch division of justice," inside the house to fight against the Executive Branch U.S. Department of Justice if needed.
Normally/traditionally House Counsel represents the interests of the entire Legislative Branch on any issue that might surface. But Pelosi set up a legal activist agency within the House Counsel to specifically “advocate” for Dem priorities, against the position of the DOJ.
Pelosi has also granted her committees additional broad investigative powers to her House committees, we may involve even using mini-FBI investigative units, dispatched to conduct investigations, accountable only to speaker Pelosi.
