DENIAL: Pelosi Says Russia Case ‘Not Closed’

Democratic Party leadership is still unwilling to give up on the Russia hoax.

Published

on

The Speaker of the United States House of Representatives said Tuesday that the case of Russian “collusion” into the 2016 presidential election is not closed, despite the fact that the investigation is over, and President Donald J. Trump was cleared of any wrongdoing.

“That’s just not a fact. The case is not closed,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said.

She was responding to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) who said it was “case closed” as the Senate opened on Tuesday.

Democrats have been agitated ever since Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III submitted a lengthy report on his two-year investigation, clearing Trump of both “collusion” and obstruction of justice. Attorney General William P. Barr released a four-page summary of the report,  and then subsequently a redacted version of the report. He testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee last week about his findings, but bucked the House Judiciary Committee, refusing to appear before them the following day.

The political left is unhappy that the investigation did not turn up the results for which they were hoping, and they have been taking their frustrations out on Barr.

Big League Politics reported:

Senate Democrats lashed out at Attorney General William Barr at a Senate hearing today, seeking to blame him for the failure of Robert Mueller’s investigation to demonstrate collusion between Donald Trump’s 2016 Presidential campaign and the Russian government.

Barr increasingly is being made a scapegoat for the nothingburger of the two-year investigation. Democrats are calling for the Attorney General’s impeachment, claiming that the recently confirmed lawyer is acting as President Trump’s personal advocate.

New York Democrat Jerrold Nadler threatened to hold Attorney General Barr in contempt of Congress during proceedings Thursday, likening President Trump to a dictator. Barr had testified before Congress on Wednesday, declining to repeat the same experience on Wednesday.

Democrats allege that Barr blunted the political impact of the Mueller report by summarizing its results before the full report was published days later.

115 House Republicans Sign Onto Effort to Remove Neocon Liz Cheney as GOP Chair

Cheney’s unfit to lead.

Published

on

A majority of House Republicans have signed onto a letter expressing no confidence in GOP conference chair Liz Cheney, following the neoconservative Wyoming member of Congress’ vote to impeach President Donald Trump.

115 Republicans have signed onto a ‘no confidence’ letter, a strong majority of the House’s GOP caucus of 211. Ten Republicans moved to betray President Trump on the sham impeachment, which is only slated to proceed in the Senate now that Trump has left office. The Senate lacks the jurisdiction to convict a private citizen, although Democrat Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer hopes to bar the 45th President from running for federal office again.

Cheney has since been officially censured by the Carbon County, Wyoming Republican Party, with the latter expressing their strong disapproval in Cheney’s betrayal of President Trump.

Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, now lacks the support to act in a leading capacity of the Republican Caucus. She’s already attracted a primary challenger, Wyoming State Senator Anthony Bouchard.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has declined to move against Cheney, opting to keep her in a position of leadership even after betraying the President and her party. Establishment neocons such as Cheney are hoping to move the Republican Party back to a globalist vision of ‘invade the world, invite the world,’ attempting to sweep President Donald Trump’s governing vision of “America First” under the rug.

Cheney Republicanism no longer represents a way forward in the Republican Party.
