Nancy just chages the law

This should make you proud elcheapo. This is how lawfare works. Those in power just change the law to make anything their opponents do illegal. This is how you can legally bear false witness and get away with it. Just remember there will come a time when they will have to answer. And Nancy Pelosi said no one is above the law. No one.

 

As Joe Hoft reported earlier today —  The House Impeachment Rules were updated on August 12, 2019.

This is the exact same day that the partisan CIA whistleblower filed his complaint – August 12, 2019.

 

The Conservative Treehouse reported on this last night.

As noted, the impeachment process document was updated on August 12, 2019.

We now have the exact changes that were made from the previous version.

The most obvious change is that Pelosi moved the responsibility and control from the entire House of Representatives to the House Judiciary Committee.

Here is the old language:

The two most recent resolutions adopted by the House to authorize an impeachment investigation were taken up by unanimous consent at the request of the Rules Committee chair.15 Rather than convene a committee meeting to order the resolutions reported with a quorum present, the chair asked unanimous consent that the House discharge the Rules Committee and agree to the resolution. Both of these resolutions concerned federal judges, and they were agreed to without debate.

In the case of the most recent authorization of a presidential impeachment inquiry, the full House did debate the resolution.

The new version created by House Democrats and published on August 12th gives the authority and control to the House Judiciary Committee.

(Changes in bold)

The two most recent resolutions adopted by the House to authorize an impeachment investigation were taken up by unanimous consent at the request of the Rules Committee chair. Rather than convene a committee meeting to order the resolutions reported with a quorum present, the chair asked unanimous consent that the House discharge the Rules Committee and agree to the resolution. Both of these resolutions concerned federal judges, and they were agreed to without debate.

In the three previous instances of judicial impeachments, however, the House did not approve a resolution explicitly authorizing an impeachment inquiry. The Rules of the House since 1975 have granted committees the power to subpoena witnesses and materials, administer oaths, and meet at any time within the United States—powers that were previously granted through resolutions providing blanket investigatory authorities that were agreed to at the start of a Congress or through authorizing resolutions for each impeachment investigation. In two of the three recent cases, the House agreed to separate resolutions to allow committee counsel to take affidavits and depositions.

If the House does approve an authorizing resolution, then in addition to the Rules Committee, the Judiciary Committee can report an original resolution authorizing an impeachment investigation if impeachment resolutions have been referred to the committee. In the case of the most recent authorization of a presidential impeachment inquiry, the Judiciary Committee reported such a resolution, and the full House debated it.

And here is a visual comparison of the changes that were made by Democrats to the document on August 12th, the same day that the whistleblower filed his complaint!

The Democrats took the power and responsibility away from the full House and put it into the hands of the House Judiciary committee.

It is also noteworthy that the new document states that the Judiciary Committee holds the investigation, hearings and markup of articles of impeachment.

However the current impeachment sham is being held by the most dishonest Representative in Congress today- Democrat Adam Schiff – who oversees the Democrat’s Intelligence Committee, not Judiciary

President Trump is an innocent man.  He is doing great things for America.  Across the Union Americans are outraged with the corrupt, if not criminal, actions of the current Democrat House members.  Americans will not stand for this.  We demand justice and the rule of law, not the destruction to the Constitution that has been going on for the past decade under Democrats in Congress and their President Obama!

Re: Nancy just chages the law

If they are so confident Trump did it why didn't they just go ahead and do it in the manner already used?  Why the trickery?   Just go ahead and hold the full house vote and get on with it.

Well let's just wait and let Bruce explain why that doesn't work in this situation. Besides Mike Pence won't go to dinner with any woman unless his wife is along. Can't have that crap.

Cause the claims won't stand up to scrutiny.  

 

Whistleblower had 'professional' tie to 2020 Democratic candidate

I can't believe nobody is correcting you or "explaining" the change.

I'd believe SNOPES has a perfectly crafted explanation.

And if your dear leader is so innocent why is he refusing to let anyone testify or allowing any info to be examined?

It would seem to be a easy way to end this by co-operating with any investigation to show how innocent he is.

Of course the Mueller investigation still sits there pointing to lots of irregularities if not criminal actions by your dear leader and his henchmen.

If democrats expect Americans to have any faith in the process they need to follow the legally proscribed manner.

Re: Nancy just chages the law

Yeah, ask any one of these 10 INNOCENT people convicted of crimes how "cooperating" worked out for them!  They say there are up to 120,000 innocent people in prison.  My advice is vigorously defend yourself, especially if bug eyed Schiff is your prosecutor.

Darryl Hunt
 

Darryl Hunt Exoneree 01 T640

Race relations are always a touchy subject—and they were at the heart of the 1984 case of Darryl Hunt, an African-American man from Winston-Salem, North Carolina. At the age of nineteen, Hunt was convicted of the rape and murder of a white woman named Deborah Sykes—despite the fact that there was no physical evidence tying him to the crimes. Even with zero evidence pointing to Hunt, he was sentenced by an all-white jury to life in prison.

In 1994, Hunt was actually cleared of the rape when DNA testing proved he had never committed that crime. Despite the rape being central to the overall crime, he spent an additional nine years in prison until a man named Willard Brown confessed to both acts. So after nineteen years of life in prison, Hunt was finally exonerated in 2004. Since being released from prison, he has worked with The Innocence Project and founded the Darryl Hunt Project for Freedom and Justice, as well as the Darryl Hunt Freedom Fighters, in order to help other wrongfully convicted men and women.
