Adam Schiff (D-CA) is fighting to keep his impeachment subpoenas hidden from the public, according to reports. Political watchdog Judicial Watch has filed a lawsuit against former impeachment "manager" Schiff to gain access to subpoenas issued last year as part of the Democrats' investigations into President Donald Trump. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Schiff, who has led the charge against Trump since he was inaugurated, is now fighting in court to keep the documents secret.

Pelosi on Trump "He can say all he wants about acquit this or that. He’ll never be vindicated" | News Thud.

After being removed from his role at the NSC last week, Vindman may now face further repercussions after he testified against President Trump. Following Trump's acquittal by the Senate, Vindman was removed from the White House after aiding the Democrats' partisan impeachment campaign against the president.

Trump’s Legal Team: There Is No Crime So Senate Must Acquit | News Thud. By Susan Crabtree – RCP President Trump and his legal team are zeroing in on Democrats’ decision to pursue a broad abuse of power charge against him as the reason for the Senate to “speedily” dismiss the impeachment case getting underway in that chamber Tuesday. The president’s lawyers on Monday asserted that Trump did “absolutely nothing wrong” regarding military aid for Ukraine, and because he committed no crime, the Democrats’ impeachment articles are both “frivolous” and a “dangerous perversion of the Constitution.”

Convicting President Trump would “permanently weaken the presidency and forever alter the balance among the branches of government in a manner that offends the constitutional design established by the founders,” Trump’s lawyers wrote in a 110-page defense.

Precedent on My Side Dershowitz has a strong argument and we know it is strong because it was used before. During the impeachment of Andrew Johnson in 1868, presiding Justice Curtis used the very same argument that Dershowitz plans on using to defend Trump. Dershowitz stated, “I am making an argument much like the argument made by the great Justice Curtis. “The argument is a strong one. “You can’t charge a president with impeachable conduct if it doesn’t fit within the criteria for the Constitution.” Political Response Social media outlets have been filled with some rather interesting quotes both supporting and condemning this impeachment. Precedent on My Side. Desperate: Adam Schiff Tries To Disqualify White House Counsel From Impeachment Trial | Tea Party.

(Breitbart) – House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and the other House impeachment managers sent a letter Tuesday to White House Counsel Pat Cipollone seeking to disqualify him from representing President Donald Trump at the Senate trial. The argument: because the articles of impeachment allege Trump committed “obstruction of Congress” by following legal advice to decline subpoenas, the lawyer who advised him is a “material fact witness.”

The letter argues: “Evidence indicates that, at a minimum, you have detailed knowledge of the facts regarding the first Article and played an instrumental role in the conduct charged in the second Article. The ethical rules generally preclude a lawyer from acting as an advocate at a trial in which he is likely also a necessary witness.” In other words, Cipollone would have to violate attorney-client privilege and his duty of confidentiality to his client, effectively disqualifying him from participating. The memorandum argued: Opinion | Schumer's demands for impeachment witnesses could haunt Democrats. Nadler: GOP Senate 'Complicit In The Cover Up Of The President' U.S. House impeachment managers criticized the Senate Republicans for their impeachment trial schedule saying it’s part of their effort to cover for President Donald Trump. In a press conference Tuesday, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) said the Senate Majority Leader’s decision to allow debate over whether to hear from new witnesses is a textbook example of that ‘cover-up.’

“To be debating whether you should have the evidence admitted, to be debating whether you should allow witnesses is to be debating whether you should have a cover-up by definition,” said Nadler. “There’s no other way to look at it.There’s no other way to look at it. House Republicans tried to have a debate over witnesses during impeachment proceedings.

Lindsey Graham Turns Tables On Impeachment Dems – Tells Them ‘It’s Either All Or None’ On Witnesses Democrats have been pushing to have their way in the Senate impeachment trial. But Lindsey Graham isn’t going to stand for it. Many Republicans, including Trump, have accused Democrats of using their demand for witnesses as an attempt at a do-over.

Most agree that the House did a rush job of impeachment. They forced through their impeachment inquiry, claiming national security reasons, while the President claimed his basic right to a defense was being denied. But now, after the investigation and a month-long wait, they want to bring out more witnesses during the Senate trial. Graham just laid down the law, making it clear if Democrats force witnesses, they are going to regret it. From The Federalist Papers: Today, on Fox News Sunday, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, just laid down the law to Democrats when it comes to witnesses during President Trump’s impeachment trial. All of them. Charles Schumer's 1999 letter about impeachment comes back to bite him.

On Feb. 11, 1999 — one day before President Bill Clinton was acquitted in his impeachment trial before the Senate — Sen. Charles Schumer penned a passionate letter, outlining why the process had taken an unfair toll on the nation. He noted that the president believed he had not crossed a line, and praised the large threshold needed to get a conviction in the Senate. He also cheered the American people for opposing impeachment. A Gallup poll in December 1998 found that 35 percent of Americans were pro-impeachment, with 73 percent of Republicans and only 12 percent of Democrats in favor. Meanwhile, a Quinnipiac poll this month found that 51 percent of Americans approve of President Donald Trump’s impeachment, with 46 percent disapproving, but the partisan divide is even starker with just 7 percent of Republicans and a whopping 91 percent of Democrats in favor.

Schumer Demands Witnesses... THIS is What He Said When Clinton Was Impeached - Right Wing News Hour. Senator Chuck Schumer’s entire political career is filled with hypocrisy, especially when it comes to impeachment. For weeks, now, he has been railing about wanting a fair trial and hearing witnesses to avoid a coverup. However, what nobody knows and what the media is hiding is where Schumer stood during the Bill Clinton impeachment.

Chuck’s Hypocrisy When Bill Clinton was being impeached, it was during the very early stages of Schumer’s political career. People may have forgotten, but Schumer ran on a platform of NOT impeaching Bill Clinton. Here he was, a freshman Senator, about to take an oath as an impartial juror, and he had already made up his mind before he ever took his seat! Same Circumstances The impeachment of Trump and Clinton, while on completely different areas of the law, are very similar in nature in terms of the temperature of the House and Senate. Democrats at the time thought it was ridiculous to impeach Clinton on what they deemed to be nothing more than an affair. Juan Williams Names 11 GOP Senators He Says Could Vote to Remove Trump, Claims 20 "May Be There" | News Thud.

In a new Op-Ed for the Hill, liberal Fox News contributor Juan Williams makes the argument that Democrats could possibly persuade the 20 GOP Senators they would need to vote with them to indict and remove President Trump. Juan Williams goes as far as naming names and the reasons he has behind them, though many Trump supporters may find his logic laughable. Juan’s first 4 names are:Mitt Romney (Utah)Lisa Murkowski (Alaska)Susan Collins (Maine)Lamar Alexander (Tennessee) Of the 11 Williams names, these 4 are the most believable. Williams then goes on to name Republican Senators in reelection states where Trump is not popular. This adds Cory Gardner (Colorado)Joni Ernest (Iowa)Martha McSally (Arizona)Thom Tillis (North Carolina) These 3 are already sounding outlandish.

Williams then adds 3 More Republican Senators about to retireRichard Burr (N.C.)Mike Enzi (Wyoming)Pat Roberts (Kansas) Williams then names Rand Paul and Ted Cruz as additional possibilities.

Ted Cruz was stunned today by a video via the Media Research Center exposing the blatant hypocrisy of the media on impeachment. Here’s the video: Ted Cruz wrote on Twitter “Wow. WATCH this. Stunning. Wonder why the media changed their mind?”

While the video was indeed stunning, his question about why the media has changed their mind is, of course, not a serious one. Trump is a Republican.Trump is Trump.They hate Trump because he beat Hillary and they didn’t see it coming, and they are terribly worried he’ll win again. So, the media must do their part to destroy Trump, which means there must be witnesses and thus this impeachment must drag on as long as possible to help Democrats uncover as much dirt on Trump as possible.

Opinion: Just Like Clockwork, CNN Reports Negative Impeachment Poll Against Trump On Trial Start Day. In a nutshell, Pres. Trump is being impeached on two non-crimes. Dems are impeaching him on hurt feelings. The only one committing crimes is former VP Joe Biden, who has been enriching his family for decades. To keep Americans away from the truth, the media, more specifically CNN, is releasing polls to sway public perception of today’s events targeting Pres. Trump. Bad actors like CNN and MSNBC never seem to post any information about the polls other than “the results.” RELATED: Opinion: Dems Don’t Care About Trial; They’re Trying To Rig 2020 Election With Impeachment Stigma The best polls to follow are just talking to people around you at the store, gas station, or another parent at your kid’s school.
