Three suspects were arrested Saturday after a fight broke out between Trump supporters and anti-Trump protesters outside the California Democratic Convention in Long Beach.

About a dozen Trump supporters stood outside the Long Beach Convention Center, using bullhorns and chanting “Four more years!” according to The Long Beach Post.

Two men approached the Trump supporters and started “harassing” them, according to one of the Trump supporters. At some point one of the anti-Trump protesters hit one of the Trump supporters in the face with a manual scooter, according to The Post.

“It happened really fast,” Trump supporter Raul Rodriguez Jr. said. He said the anti-Trump protesters started the fight.

Rodriguez said the protester grabbed his bull horn after he turned on its siren and put it in his face. He said the protester tried to hit him, prompting another Trump supporter to defend Rodriguez.

Police arrested all three men on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon that is not a firearm.

Two of the suspects were taken to the hospital with minor cuts.

It wasn’t clear who started the physical fight, The Post reported.

The Long Beach Police Department “is committed to ensuring everyone’s 1st Amendment rights, but we also want to remind you that any violence of any kind will not be tolerated in our community,” the department said in a tweet.

Reps. Biggs and Hice: Trump impeachment effort may be abandoned by House Democrats fearing election losses

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6103939574001_6103938485001-vs Reps. Biggs and Hice: Trump impeachment effort may be abandoned by House Democrats fearing election losses Rep. Jody Hice Rep.

Don’t be surprised if House Democrats never bring up a vote to impeach President Trump. And if they do, it will only be because their leaders are willing to pay the price of seeing some Democrats who were elected in swing districts carried by Trump in 2016 go down to defeat in 2020.

The Democrats may not have suffered a fatal blow to their impeachment case in House Intelligence Committee impeachment hearings Wednesday and Friday – but they are very close to the edge.

The hearings featured the testimony of the Democrats’ star witnesses – acting Ambassador to Ukraine William Taylor and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent on Wednesday, followed Friday by former Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch.

TRUMP DEFENDS TWEETING ABOUT YOVANOVITCH DURING HER TESTIMONY: ‘I HAVE THE RIGHT TO SPEAK’

The Democrats started their case with a promise to the American people that there is clear evidence of some crime for which President Trump ought to be impeached. But they failed to deliver any impeachment “dirt.” Instead, they only managed to produce three bureaucrats who are unhappy that Trump was engaged in foreign policy with Ukraine without them.

More from Opinion

When Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, asked Taylor and Kent to identify an impeachable act committed by President Trump, the bureaucrats sat in their seats in stunned silence. The awkward pause was only broken when Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., began a rambling diatribe.

The witnesses could not state an impeachable offense, and neither can the Democrats.

In Friday’s hearing with former Ambassador Yovanovitch, Rep. Chris Stewart, R-Utah, asked her if she had any information regarding President Trump accepting any bribes or being involved in criminal activity. She clearly answered “no” to both questions. This was an additional dagger in the Democrats’ morphing case for impeachment.

The Democrats were sucked into Schiff’s vortex of impeachment obsession. He has ambled along for the past three years trying to find a rationale for impeachment, only to be foiled by the turn of events.

When the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller took away the Russia “collusion” narrative, it also emasculated the obstruction of justice thread by finding none of the requisite intent.

When the so-called whistleblower contacted Chairman Schiff’s staff members, they apparently coordinated a complaint that became the latest peg upon which Schiff hoped to hang his impeachment hat.

Schiff persuaded House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to announce a vote on an impeachment inquiry. Schiff and Pelosi boasted about what the mysterious leaker – the so-called whistleblower – had said about President Trump’s alleged misconduct.

That claim against the president was dashed when he released the transcript of his July 25 telephone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in an unprecedented show of transparency.

Schiff has built his impeachment effort on sand, and it is slipping through his fingers. Democrats keep trying to find a way to explain to the American people what they believe is behavior by the president so egregious that it justifies his impeachment. They can’t quite get there.

Wednesday’s hearing proved the point – as Friday’s did as well. The Democrats’ rationale for impeachment is so obtuse that neither the witnesses nor the Democrats can explain what it is that the president supposedly did – except to declare that he didn’t do what they originally said he did. Their charge is in a shroud.

The bottom line is that Taylor, Kent and Yovanovitch couldn’t identify an impeachable offense. They all admitted they had no personal knowledge about what President Trump may have said on the July 25 call that was the catalyst for the impeachment hearings.

These witnesses didn’t witness anything. The information Taylor and Kent provided in Wednesday’s hearing was second-, third- and even fourth-hand knowledge. Their testimony is inherently flawed if any link in their chain of information is inaccurate.

The nation has learned that the entire case of the Democrats is built on hearsay – which is considered to be unreliable in a court of law because the veracity of the actual witness cannot be questioned. And the veracity of this hearsay is contradicted by real evidence.

In Wednesday’s hearing, Taylor and Kent said that Ukrainian President Zelensky is an honest person. Zelensky has repeatedly told media throughout the world that there was no pressure, no extortion, no bribery, no conditions placed upon him in order to receive American aid.

All three of these witnesses agreed that U.S. aid was given to Ukraine and that President Trump’s assistance to Ukraine has been more consistent and robust than the Obama administration’s efforts.

Now, if you were a Democrat in a competitive district that voted for Trump in 2016, and if you watched the hearings, would you feel compelled to vote for impeachment?

The evidence presented, and the way it was presented, was so underwhelming that only the staunchest of impeachment fanatics are likely to race off the cliff of impeachment.

Don’t be surprised if there is a revolt against forcing an impeachment vote by Democrats who will become vulnerable by voting for impeachment.

If she is as savvy as people say, Speaker Pelosi ought to stop the impeachment charade and refocus attention on meaningful legislation that could address the challenges America faces.

Bill Maher predicts Donald Trump Jr. will be the GOP nominee in 2024

Westlake Legal Group Donald-Trump-JR Bill Maher predicts Donald Trump Jr. will be the GOP nominee in 2024 Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/politics/executive/first-family fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/entertainment/politics-on-late-night fox news fnc/entertainment fnc d7b99295-bfdb-5754-8172-24f3232c6248 article

“Real Time” Bill Maher made a bold prediction on Friday night that Donald Trump Jr. will become the GOP presidential nominee in 2024.

The conversation began when Maher sounded the alarms on former U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley’s repeated defense of President Trump during the launch of her book tour.

“I thought she was one of the more reasonable ones,” Maher began. “She kind of acquitted herself at her job at the U.N… she went full-on Team Deplorable this week.”

Maher played clips for Haley’s recent interviews where she claimed that President Trump had always been “truthful” to her and defended her former boss amid the impeachment inquiry, where she said, “show me the proof” that Trump did something wrong with his interactions towards Ukraine.

DONALD TRUMP JR. SLAMS GEORGE CONWAY DURING TWITTER SPAT: ‘YOU’RE A DISGRACE’

“This is the scariest thing this week because this is somebody who is betting that there is no more Republican-Classic party, there is only Trump, and she thinks, ‘Well, after he’s gone, I’ll be able to rejoin polite society,'” Maher continued. “But when you do this, you’re destroying polite society. This is so scary to me.”

The HBO star then quickly pivoted to the next presidential election cycle, but didn’t see Haley as being a part of it.

“I’ll tell ya, do you know who I think is going to be the nominee in 2024? Don Jr.,” Maher told the panel, which sparked laughter from the audience. “Yeah, they laughed when I said Trump would win too because that’s what third-world dictators do.”

He then listed dictators like Syria’s Bashar al-Assad and North Korea’s Kim Jong-un, warning his panel that “this is what they do.”

“So don’t think it can’t happen here,” Maher continued. “I’ve said it many times, but just remember- these are the good old days. One year from now, this country is going to be in a s—storm like we have never seen because he will likely have lost the election, Trump, and he probably will not leave. And what is the plan? That’s what I want to know from every Democrat.”

Maher rips Hillary Clinton’s 2020 tease: ‘Someone needs to put Xanax in her hot sauce’

Westlake Legal Group bill-maher-HBO Maher rips Hillary Clinton's 2020 tease: 'Someone needs to put Xanax in her hot sauce' Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/politics/the-clintons fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/entertainment/politics-on-late-night fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 912f9444-787f-5a6b-8b44-04bdb06fd7ce

“Real Time” host Bill Maher offered a blunt rejection to Hillary Clinton after she said “never say never” when asked about a potential 2020 run.

Earlier this week, the former Secretary of State was pressed about the possibility of her entering the Democratic field as former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg began filing to qualify in state primaries and later former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick formally launched his campaign.

“I, as I say, never, never, never say never,” Clinton told BBC Radio. “I will certainly tell you, I’m under enormous pressure from many, many, many people to think about it.”

Clinton added: “But as of this moment, sitting here in this studio talking to you, that is absolutely not in my plans.”

The HBO star, however, wasn’t exactly on board.

BILL MAHER SAYS TRUMP IMPEACHMENT HEARINGS COULD GIVE VOTERS ‘INVESTIGATION FATIGUE’

“Just, no,” Maher told an audience member who clapped in support of Clinton. “Somone needs to put some Xanax in her hot sauce.”

“Here’s her quote. She said, ‘I say, never, never, never say never. I will certainly tell you, I’m under enormous pressure from many, many, many people to think about it.’ Yes, those are Trump supporters… C’mon!”

Fox News contributor Donna Brazile offered a defense for Clinton, saying it’s not her “job” as the former DNC chairwoman to “say no to anybody.”

“It’s my job- don’t do it!” Maher exclaimed.

CLIVE OWEN CAST AS BILL CLINTON IN: ‘IMPEACHMENT: AMERICAN CRIME STORY’

Last month, Maher urged both Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton to not attend the Democratic convention next year.

“The Clintons… they’ve got to go away,” Maher said. “I’m saying this a year out… They can’t be at the convention. Maybe on the video, waving or something, but I’m serious.”

Maher then referred to a Twitter message posted by Rep. Justin Amash, I-Mich., who called Hillary Clinton a “Donald Trump asset” in reaction to her claim that Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, was a “Russian asset” who was being “groomed” to run as a third-party candidate in 2020.

“She is!” Maher agreed. “And Bill is damaged goods. And I just think they’ve got to go away. We can’t be associating them with the Democratic Party.”

Fox News’ Andrew O’Reilly contributed to this report.

Victor Davis Hanson: The California endangered species no one can save – Will it ever return?

Westlake Legal Group AP19228681061091 Victor Davis Hanson: The California endangered species no one can save – Will it ever return? Victor Davis Hanson Tribune Media Services fox-news/us/us-regions/west/california fox-news/politics/elections/republicans fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/opinion fnc/opinion fnc dc7d3cd2-1cfa-59bd-a6b9-87ed57191ce9 article

From 1967 to 2019, Republicans controlled the California governorship for 31 of 52 years. So why is there currently not a single statewide Republican officeholder? California also has a Democratic governor and Democratic supermajorities in both houses of the state legislature. Only seven of California’s 53 congressional seats are held by Republicans.

In 1994, then-Gov. Pete Wilson backed Proposition 187, which denied state social services to undocumented immigrants. The spin goes that it backfired, alienated the Hispanic community and thus marked the road to Republican perdition.

Not quite.

TOM DEL BECCARO: CRAZY CALIFORNIA IS ACTIVELY WORKING TO DRIVE MIDDLE CLASS VOTERS OUT OF THE STATE

Prop 187 passed with 59 percent support. Wilson’s endorsement of the bill helped its passage, and his support of it aided his landslide 1994 reelection. Among minority voters, 52 percent of Asian and African American voters supported Proposition 187. Some 27 percent of Latinos voted for it.

Liberal groups immediately sued in federal court. Just three days after the measure passed, a federal judge issued a temporary restraining order preventing Proposition 187 from going into effect. A month later, U.S. District Judge Mariana Pfaelzer issued a permanent injunction. Prop 187 never became law.

In effect, two judges nullified the wishes of more than 5 million California voters.

Arnold Schwarzenegger had supported Prop 187. Yet in 2003 he was elected governor. So what caused the Republican demise?

Ironically, radical changes in California demography may have been brought about by Prop 187 — but not in the way many people think.

More from Opinion

The state’s population has increased by nearly 10 million in the last quarter-century. Yet the growth has been marked by the exodus of some and larger influxes of others.

When Prop 187 passed, there were an estimated 1.5 million undocumented immigrants statewide. In the 25 years since then millions of others have entered the state, and the current number of those still undocumented exceeds 3 million.

Some 27 percent of current California residents were not born in the U.S. Traditionally, first-generation immigrants favor larger, not smaller, government.

Will there ever again be a viable California Republican Party?

A cynic might argue that once a federal judge allowed undocumented immigrants to enjoy the full array of state services and entitlements, there were incentives for millions of other immigrants to enter the U.S. illegally, and California in particular.

Statistics suggest they did just that — often to the chagrin of Democratic politicians, the United Farm Workers and other liberal groups who worried about the negative effects of illegal immigration on entry-level wages, unionization and poor citizens’ access to overtaxed social services.

Oddly, conservative businesspeople were likely to favor permissive immigration policies in hopes of finding an ample supply of low-cost laborers while simultaneously diminishing the power of unions.

A technological revolution sparked a lucrative Silicon Valley renaissance. Suddenly, coastal California became one of the wealthiest corridors in the history of the planet. “Big Tech” drew in hundreds of thousands of hip young workers eager to come to California and join what was thought to be a global revolution.

Silicon Valley was seen as a uniquely progressive corporate paradise where one could get rich and stay woke all at once. Most techies supported big government, higher taxes and open borders, and had the money and wherewithal to not worry much about the ensuing costs and the catastrophic results for others.

By the turn of the century, the California treasury was relying on the tech industry for an enormous share of the taxes to fund its massive expansion of state services — and politicians often bowed to Big Tech’s political wishes.

As taxes climbed, schools eroded and funds for infrastructure were diverted elsewhere, millions of middle-class Californians fled. The total numbers of this continuing exodus are still in dispute. Many left in despair over climbing gas, sales and income taxes that seemed to worsen rather improve state infrastructure and services.

This tripartite demographic revolution proved disastrous for the Republican Party. The GOP lost much of its base to other states. Many conservative voters left for small-government, low-tax alternatives. Republican efforts to reduce taxes, limit some abortions and fund additional roads and dams had little appeal to the new gentry classes on the coast.

Will there ever again be a viable California Republican Party?

After three decades of radical progressivism, California residents are tiring of one-party straitjacket rule. The hard-liberal order normalized massive power blackouts, the nation’s highest array of taxes, the forest mismanagement that fuels deadly fires, an epidemic of homelessness in major cities, eroding schools, ossified infrastructure and soaring energy costs.

The final irony?

Those most hurt — and growing the most angry — are the immigrants who once fled to a different California that now no longer exists.

Bozell and Graham: ABC, CBS, NBC’s out of control obsession with Trump — Amazing results from our study

Westlake Legal Group TrumpFNF110419 Bozell and Graham: ABC, CBS, NBC's out of control obsession with Trump -- Amazing results from our study Tim Graham L. Brent Bozell III fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/opinion fox-news/media fnc/opinion fnc Creators Syndicate article 7398500c-6da4-5883-b54d-d630c8affffe

As Democrats hold impeachment hearings and the networks preempt their regular programming to help the Democrats ruin President Trump, there is one thing we know. The networks are always and forever going to try to beat this president senseless with negative coverage.

It’s out of control.

The latest study by the Media Research Center’s Rich Noyes finds that during the six weeks since House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the inquiry (Sept. 24 through Nov. 5), “the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts churned out 398 minutes of coverage to the Ukraine scandal.” Important, yes, but it’s “more than three-fifths of all administration news during this period.” It neatly resembles their fiendish obsession with their last “fake news” chapter: Trump and Russia.

JASON CHAFFETZ: WHY SCHIFF’S WHISTLEBLOWER CLAIMS AT TRUMP IMPEACHMENT HEARINGS ARE IMPOSSIBLE TO BELIEVE

Here’s what’s truly amazing. The tone of overall coverage was 96 percent negative. That makes the long-running average of 90 percent look good.

The negativity is both bombastic and shameless. On Oct. 29, “CBS Evening News” anchor Norah O’Donnell touted “bombshell impeachment testimony” in her opening tease and then turned to the first report. “We’re going to begin with that damning impeachment testimony today from a key witness,” she said.

The same night, NBC chief White House correspondent Hallie Jackson also enthusiastically promoted “bombshell testimony” from “a firsthand witness to the explosive conversation that ignited the impeachment inquiry.”

More from Opinion

This allegedly dynamite testimony was behind closed doors, and there was no audio or video, but the networks sold it anyway.

The Media Research Center also reports that Joe Biden bizarrely received the best press of his campaign (71 percent positive), as reporters robotically repeated the mantra that “there is no evidence of any wrongdoing” by Biden or his profiteering son Hunter Biden in Ukraine. Trump bad, Bidens good.

And they have no interest in pursuing the one question Republicans keep asking: What did Hunter Biden do in return for 50 grand per month?

These networks can’t find time for any good news for this president, or for the country. Despite a 50-year low in the unemployment rate and record stock market highs, Trump’s handling of the economy was almost completely squashed. Facts about the booming economy drew just 4 minutes and 6 seconds of coverage during these six weeks. That’s less than 1 percent of all news on the Trump administration.

Here’s the one that puts everything in its proper perspective. ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was the world’s most dangerous terrorist — was. The U.S. commander in chief took him out. How did the media cover his role in it? The tone was 67 percent negative! They criticized him for anything they could find, from his refusal to brief congressional leaders to his swaggering commentary on how this foul terrorist died disgracefully by blowing himself up.

NBC News correspondent Courtney Kube speculated and said, “It’s possible that President Trump’s bellicose language about the manner in which he died could actually inspire some ISIS fighters to retaliate.” And it’s possible that NBC’s perennially bellicose language against the Republicans could backfire.

So, let’s repeat. The economy is going gangbusters. We beheaded the leadership of ISIS. And President Trump’s overall evening-news coverage was 96 percent negative. How can they look into the teleprompters with a straight face?

Kamala Harris, polling at 3 percent, hearing calls for campaign manager’s resignation

Westlake Legal Group kamala-Harris-1 Kamala Harris, polling at 3 percent, hearing calls for campaign manager's resignation fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/michael-bloomberg fox-news/person/kamala-harris fox news fnc/politics fnc Danielle Wallace article a6dac8f9-aba4-5d63-b230-279872832525

Sen. Kamala Harris, whose campaign cut staff in a dramatic restructuring last month, is now polling at just 3 percent, tying her with Michael Bloomberg for fifth place among the Democratic Party’s presidential nominees — according to a poll released Friday — even though Bloomberg hasn’t even formally announced his 2020 candidacy.

And now Harris may be facing another problem: A second report Friday described internal strife at Harris’ Baltimore campaign headquarters, with several aides calling for campaign manager Juan Rodriguez’s resignation following his late October decision to lay off field staffers in several states and dedicate Harris’ already dwindling campaign war chest to a seven-figure TV ad campaign before the February Iowa caucus.

KAMALA HARRIS SAYS SHE’S ‘ALL IN’ ON IOWA — DESPITE CAMPAIGN RESTRUCTURING, LAYOFFS

Harris and Bloomberg were deadlocked in a Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted Nov. 12-14. Though not yet a declared candidate, Bloomberg, the former New York City mayor and billionaire business and media mogul, launched a massive $100 million digital ad campaign Friday targeting President Trump.

In the poll, both Harris and Bloomberg fell behind Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Ind., who polled at 6 percent, and Sen Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., who polled at 13 percent. Former Vice President Joe Biden and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders led the Demicratic field tied at 19 percent support.

Rodriguez said in an Oct. 30 campaign memo obtained by Fox News that several dozen people would be laid off at the campaign’s Baltimore headquarters — as would volunteers in New Hampshire, Nevada, and California — in an effort to go “all-in” in Iowa. He also said the campaign aimed to dedicate $1 million to a media campaign in the weeks before the Feb. 3 caucus, a figure now considered unlikely given Harris’ lackluster funding.

Three additional staff members were laid off and another quit in recent days at Harris’ campaign headquarters in Baltimore, unnamed aides told Politico on Friday. They said several aides have approached campaign chair Maya Harris, the candidate’s sister, to force Rodriguez to step down, claiming his failed leadership is responsible for the campaign’s recent troubles.

One official said Harris’ current campaign structure has “No discipline. No plan. No strategy.”

“It’s a campaign of id,” the official continued. “What feels right, what impulse you have right now, what emotion, what frustration.”

But others defended Rodriguez, saying he’s been loyal to Harris even before she first announced her candidacy in June. They pointed fingers at Maya Harris, who shared leadership responsibility with Rodriguez.

Bloomberg already shelling out $100M for anti-Trump online ads, before formal announcement

He hasn’t declared his candidacy for president – yet – but Mike Bloomberg’s already going up with a massive digital ad campaign targeting President Trump.

Fox News confirmed that the former New York City mayor and billionaire business and media mogul will spend $100 million to run digital ads starting Friday that target the Republican incumbent in the White House. The ads will run in the crucial general election battle states of Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Arizona.

BATTLE OF THE BILLIONAIRES: STEYER JABS AT BLOOMBERG

“We’re very clear: A case that we make for Mike is that he is the best candidate to take on Trump, and one of the reasons he is the best candidate is he can take the fight to him immediately and robustly,” said Howard Wolfson, a top Bloomberg political adviser, in a statement first provided to the New York Times.

The ads come as Bloomberg has taken concrete steps toward running for the White House. He filed to place his name on the ballot in Arkansas on Tuesday, hours ahead of that state’s presidential primary filing deadline. A week ago, Bloomberg’s name was placed on the primary ballot in Alabama an hour ahead of that state’s filing deadline.

A Bloomberg aide told Fox News that “Mike isn’t waiting to take on the president, he’s starting now. This is all hands on deck.”

The ads – which aides say will run through the end of the presidential primary season, even if Bloomberg ends up not running for the White House – do not feature him beyond the legally required disclaimers.

One of the ads – shared by Bloomberg’s team – featured a visual of a Trump tweet behind copy that read “A tweet shouldn’t threaten our country’s security.”

THE LATEST FROM FOX NEWS ON THE 2020 PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN

The ads may be aimed at blunting criticism by Democrats that Bloomberg’s money would be better spent on targeting Trump than on his own White House aspirations.

And the ads seem to hint that if Bloomberg moves forward and declares his candidacy, he would be willing to spend whatever it takes to defeat the president.

The Trump campaign, in responding to the digital ad buy, took aim at Bloomberg and his record governing New York City.

“Bloomberg can spend all the money he wants, but it won’t tarnish the president’s record of results for the American people, and it can’t repair his disastrous tenure as mayor of New York City,” Ali Pardo, Trump campaign deputy communications director, told Fox News.

Adriana Cohen: Trump impeachment inquiry is Democratic election meddling and a one-sided charade

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6103939574001_6103938485001-vs Adriana Cohen: Trump impeachment inquiry is Democratic election meddling and a one-sided charade fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/opinion fnc/opinion fnc f59dfaf3-3d65-5e0b-b553-bd0634f180a5 Creators Syndicate article Adriana Cohen

While Democrats pretend to care about stopping foreign interference into our elections to preserve the integrity of our democracy, they conveniently turn a blind eye to their own election meddling. The rest of us can see with our own eyes.

First, it was the #RussiaHoax manufactured by a cabal of anti-Trump foes: former FBI Director James Comey, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Andrew McCabe, John Brennan and others who took Democrat-funded opposition research — sourced from Russia and an ex-British spy — and used the “unverified and salacious” dossier to trigger multiple criminal investigations into Donald Trump and his associates to stop him from getting elected.

When that failed, Trump-hating FBI agent Strzok texted his lover Page about the “insurance policy” that high-powered officials in the FBI and deep state put in place in case of the unlikely scenario Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election.

REP. STEVE SCALISE: TRUMP IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY REQUIRES THE TRUTH — AMERICA MUST HEAR FROM WHISTLEBLOWER

That was the first known example of domestic election meddling — in a major U.S. presidential election, no less — by those on the left who first tried to block Trump from getting elected in 2016 by concocting a phony “Russian collusion” conspiracy narrative. When that collapsed, Democrats called for a special counsel investigation as a Plan B maneuver to oust our duly elected president from office.

Neither dirty trick worked. Multiple congressional investigations and Robert Mueller’s investigation found no such evidence of Russian collusion, despite the massive disinformation campaign that the #FakeNewsMedia, Democrats and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., waged against the president, his family and his associates. Election meddling exhibit A.

Instead of being held accountable for their illicit acts — which, at minimum, sowed enormous discord and distrust in our electoral system and our justice system — Democrats have brazenly moved to election meddling exhibit B: impeachment.

More from Opinion

They’ve launched impeachment proceedings based on a partisan deep state whistleblower and other anti-Trump bureaucrats within the government with no direct knowledge of the July phone call in question, between the president and Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky. In the left’s insatiable quest for power, facts and evidence don’t matter. They already possess the official transcript of the phone call, which shows no quid pro quo or any criminal wrongdoing.

All that matters to them is hearsay and smoke and mirrors, that the president “may have said something wrong” — despite the fact that Zelensky has said there was “no pressure” or anything wrong with their conversation.

Same with Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko, who said Gordon Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the European Union, “did not tell us, and certainly did not tell me, about a connection between the assistance and the investigations. You should ask him.”

He added, “I have never seen a direct relationship between investigations and security assistance. Yes, the investigations were mentioned, you know, in the conversation of the presidents. But there was no clear connection between these events.”

So here we have liberal lawmakers choosing to believe hearsay, rumors and secondhand information presented by never-Trump bureaucrats while flat-out ignoring a transcript, a world leader who was on the call with the president and other high-ranking Ukrainian officials possessing firsthand information of what transpired.

That’s corruption, folks, the definition of a frame job.

Democrats have also blocked Republicans from inviting key witnesses to testify and refused to allow the president to have counsel present at the impeachment hearings to cross-examine his accusers. It’s a one-sided charade. The leader of the free world is being denied due process and any semblance of fairness — something that should alarm every American. I don’t care how you vote.

In a recent CNN interview, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., said the impeachment inquiry was “not just about something that has occurred.” She said it was instead “about preventing a potentially disastrous outcome from occurring next year.”

It sounds like Strzok’s “insurance policy” all over again.

If all this isn’t election meddling, what is?

Warren says Trump trying to ‘distract from the substance’ with latest impeachment witness attack

LACONIA, N.H. – Using some of her strongest language yet against President Trump, presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-N.H., said most Americans are “tired of the ugliness… tired of the name-calling… tired of the disgusting behavior” coming from the Republican president.

And, speaking with reporters after a town hall in New Hampshire, the state holding the first primary in the race for the White House, the Democrat from neighboring Massachusetts spotlighted Tuesday’s impeachment inquiry testimony by Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, arguing it’s further proof that the president violated the law in asking a foreign country to investigate one of Trump’s top 2020 rivals.

Vindman, the National Security Council’s (NSC) Director of European Affairs, said he listened to a July phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. He became the first current White House official to testify in the probe led by House Democrats. According to his prepared remarks, he was concerned by what he heard on the phone call and alerted the NSC’s chief counsel.

HOUSE DEMOCRATS INTRODUCE RESOLUTION FORMALIZING IMPEACHMENT INQUIRE PROCEDURES

The president has come under fire over the conversation, in which he asked Zelensky to look into the dealings of former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter in Ukraine. Recent polls have shown Biden and Warren at the front of the pack among the Democrats aiming to challenge Trump in next year’s election. Fueled by whistleblower complaints, a transcript of the call released by the White House and witness testimony, Democrats have argued the president was asking a foreign country to try interfering in a U.S. election.

Adding to the controversy was the fact that before that phone call, millions in U.S. military aid to Ukraine was put on hold. Despite allegations that Trump was using that money as leverage, Trump repeatedly has insisted that he did nothing wrong. He said there was no “quid pro quo” and has on numerous occasions described his conversation with the Ukrainian leader as “perfect.”

VINDMAN TELLS LAWMAKERS HE WAS NOT WHISTLEBLOWER

Ahead of Tuesday’s appearance by Vindman, Trump questioned the officer’s credibility as a witness and labeled him – without offering proof – as a “never Trumper.”

Asked about the president’s criticism of the national security official, Warren told reporters, “this is one more example of Donald Trump trying to distract from the substance of what’s going on.”

She emphasized, “We’ve now heard from one more person who was on the call who understands clearly that Donald Trump pressured the head of the government of Ukraine in order to protect Donald Trump’s own political future. That is a violation of the law and it is also morally wrong. Trump hopes we’ll talk about something other than that. He’s wrong.”

If the House were to impeach the president, the action would move then to the Senate, which would hold a trial. That could occur as soon as early next year, in the weeks ahead of the Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire’s primary.

Asked how she could balance her role on an impeachment trial and campaigning in Iowa and New Hampshire, Warren told reporters, “Some things are more important than politics. I took a pledge to uphold the Constitution of the United States and that’s what this impeachment is all about. Donald Trump thinks he’s above the law. The Constitution says otherwise.”

Trump and Warren have long sparred, dating back to her time during the 2016 election as a top surrogate for Democrat Hillary Clinton. The president repeatedly has mocked Warren as “Pocahontas,” over her controversial claims of Native American heritage.

Asked by an audience member during the town hall how she would push back against Trump if she won the nomination, the senator pledged, “You don’t back down from a bully.”

She also previewed, “I think the way we do this is, we show aggressively what we can do, the kind of country we can be. We give Americans a real choice.”

Warren also emphasized, “the Donald Trump show… it’s just getting old and it’s getting boring.”

SANDERS, WARREN TOP NEW NH POLL, BIDEN SLIPS TO THIRD

Warren held her town hall in a gym in Laconia’s middle school, which was also the site of a Trump general-election rally in September 2016.

The senator arrived in Laconia hours after Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in an interview he’s open to loosening financial crisis-era liquidity requirements for big banks to relieve potential cash crunches in short-term funding markets.

MNUCHIN OPEN TO LOOSER BANK LIQUIDITY RULES

Warren, who sits on the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee and who has long crusaded against Wall Street and the big banks, took aim at the treasury secretary.

“What Steven Mnuchin proposes is dangerous and it’s in the exact direction that every single step taken by the Trump administration has gone, and that is making it a little easier for the banks to make a little more money with a little less oversight,” she argued. “In 2008, that kind of thinking brought our entire country to the brink of financial collapse. What these guys are doing is short-term profits for the banks and long-term pain for the American people.”

The Republican National Committee, ahead of Warren’s visit just two days before Halloween, said: “Her plans are terrifying.”

RNC Spokeswoman Nina McLaughlin added, “Granite Staters have seen the positive changes made under President Trump’s administration and will choose to keep America strong and prosperous, rather than take a gamble on Warren’s progressive pipe dreams.”
