They can’t lay a finger on Trump. Despite the sanpaku eyes of Shifty Schiff and Congresschild Ocrazio-Kotex, Mueller’s wish-list memos are nothing more than that and (as they pathetically hope) a list of coming attractions. Jerry Nadler, the NY Congressman about to helm the House Judiciary Committee whose working personality is somewhere between a soap dish and dart, revealed over the weekend that Stormy Daniels’ “shut up” payments may in fact constitute impeachable offenses. Wait, what? Yep, if President Trump is found to have directed convicted perjurer, con and fraudster, Michael Cohen, to pay porn star, weathered strumpet and cheezy slattern Stormy Daniels and the forgotten Karen McDougal in a negotiated settlement for their “silence,” those would be “impeachable offenses,” according to the incoming chairman Haystacks Nadler. But get this.
Nadler’s attempt at nailing it. These are his words and please note the emphasis supplied and I swear this is a quote. “Well, they would be impeachable offenses, whether they are important enough to justify an impeachment is a different question,” Nadler told CNN’s Jake Tapper Sunday. What?! But as they say on QVC, but wait, there’s more. “But certainly they’d be impeachable offenses because even though they were committed before the president became president, they were committed in the service of fraudulently obtaining the office, that would be an impeachable offense.” What planet is this man from? What star system? What parallel universe? Jerry, there’s help for you but you have to take the first step.
Ford’s formula. True, it’s axiomatic that whatever a majority of the House agrees to amounts to an impeachable offense. As Jerry Ford famously stated in 1970 when discussions of impeaching SCOTUS Justice William O. Douglas were had, this is technically true. Hit it, Jerry: “An impeachable offense is whatever a majority of the House of Representatives considers it to be at a given moment in history; conviction results from whatever offense or offenses two-thirds of the other body considers to be sufficiently serious to require removal of the accused from office.” Thanks, GF.
Double Standard, anyone? The idea that the echo chamber MSM have mentioned nary a peep over the millions in settlements regarding congressmen — settlements with your money — should enrage you but never surprise you. But it’s funny how we react to certain acts of sexual shenanigans and untoward behavior. Gawd, I love this country.
Sin versus crime. With the release of Lurch’s memo, it appears that Bobby Mueller is going for the Hail Mary and letting it all hang out so as to provide a blue print and schematic for impeachment in Da House. Gone is the historic reality of a Grand Jury voting up and down for a true bill — to indict or not. No, that was then. Today we have series of exhaustive reports of prolix and palaver issued after non – indictments. Remember what this means, a report on why there was no indictment. Imagine a medical examiner reporting on why someone is not dead.
