Random Thoughts On Rep. Katie Hill And Her Thrupple

I was involved in a Thupple? Is that on Google?

Ahhhhhh just when you think that you have seen it all in the world of entertainment and politics, along comes a freshman Congresswoman from California and her “Thrupple” that says “I can do better, hold my hairbrush.”

Miracles truly, never do cease.

After reading the excellent work done by my colleague Jennifer Van Laar on Rep. Katie Hill D-CA and her inappropriate relationship with her staffers CA Rep. Katie Hill Allegedly Involved Female Staffer In 2-Yr ‘Throuple’ Relationship, I sat down and jotted a few random thoughts down about this story.

Here they are…

*According to Jenn’s story, Katie Hill was married for 15 years and had a female staffer that she and the hubby were involved with.

Photographs and text messages obtained by RedState show that Rep. Hill was involved in a long-term sexual relationship with a female campaign staffer. The woman, whose name is not being released, was hired by Hill in late 2017 and quickly became involved in a “throuple” relationship with Hill and her estranged husband, Kenny Heslep.

Heslep and the staffer, according to text messages provided to RedState, believed the polyamorous arrangement to be a long-term, committed relationship. The trio took multiple vacations together, including to Alaska, where this photograph was taken.

So Katie and the hubby start off as a couple and then bring the third girl into the mix. So this part I understand being I watch HBO shows based in California and have seen crazier things. However, being I am not steeped in the rules for “Thrupples” my first questions are these.

Now that Hill has jumped ship to her finance director, do the hubby and the female staffer continue on? Do they find a third wheel to replace Hill? Do they maybe include the finance director and would that be a quadruple?

I’m a newbie and I have questions people.

* In this EXCLUSIVE photo (listed below) from Jenn’s article, it is shown that Rep. Hill is naked while brushing the third wheels hair while sitting on a chair in what looks to be a hotel room.

My question and or thought here is, did anyone alert housekeeping that the cushion NEEDED TO BE CLEANED? Having congresspersons bare A$$ on a cushion in a hotel room that the next patron uses also when it was not cleaned is GROSS.

When did the Thrupple community become such savages?

*When does this story become a Jeopardy question?

Question: This Freshman Congresswoman from California was married to a guy but they both had the same girlfriend and were alleged to be in a what?

Answer: What is a THRUPPLE Alex!

*When are any of the mainstream media or entertainment outlets going to pick up this excellent reporting by Jenn?

Here we have a story about an allegation of clear abuse of power. You are not supposed to be playing any type of intimate relations game with people that WORK FOR YOU ( on the taxpayers’ dime ) when you are an elected official. This is about as unethical as it gets.

How has this tale about Thrupple sex and a clear abuse of power not made Special Report With Bret Baier or even TMZ for cripes sake? Cmon Harvey, you’re better than this. I have been looking forward to you and Charles covering this for TMZ Live and then watch you shake your head while looking at the ground like you do when you’re flabbergasted.

I’m sure if it were a Republican this would be getting the same treatment of nonchalant yawns from the mainstream media. I’m sorry, I couldn’t even type that without laughing aloud.

Once again, great work by my colleague Jennifer Van Laar on this. She has been doxxed and threatened over this, which I don’t understand why. She introduced a new word to all of us non-heathens and heathens alike and you should be thankful, not ticked off.

Why Is Alexandria Ocasio Cortez Picking On Pete Buttigieg?

STOP PICKING ON ME A.O.C.

(AP Photo/John Minchillo)

Let’s just get something straight here right off the bat.

This article about a spat between two progressives is not going to SINK to the level of how progressive democrats act in regards to how they treat conservatives. We are not going to assume here for ONE MOMENT that just because of Alexandria Ocasio Cortez picking on Pete Buttigieg with tweets, that she hates white men, white men who are straight or gay. Even white men who put ketchup on their hot dogs or don’t like 250 dollar haircuts.

We are not going there.

Pete Buttigieg on Fox News Sunday responded to criticism from A.O.C. about fundraising and what would be needed to be done for the Democratic nominee to take on and win against Donald Trump.

He actually sounds like he is taking this really seriously here.

From Fox News

The far-left congresswoman accused Buttigieg of protecting a system of “big money politics” instead of trying to make it a thing of the past, touting the merits of “small-dollar grassroots campaigns,” which she said were more successful than his. Buttigieg said he’s quite familiar with grassroots campaigning, but said it will take more than that for Democrats to succeed in 2020.

“Well, first of all, you don’t go from mayor of South Bend to a competitive presidential candidate without knowing a thing or two about grassroots campaigning,” Buttigieg told “Fox News Sunday” in response to Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet, posted last week. “My campaign is fueled by the contributions of almost 600,000 individual donors and most of those are small contributions.”

Ocasio-Cortez posted her remark while retweeting a quote from Buttigieg that criticized Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s plan to stay away from large donations. Buttigieg had said, “We’re not going to beat Trump with pocket change.” Ocasio-Cortez described that comment as insulting to small donors, but Buttigieg explained his stance on Sunday.

He is taking this seriously!!!!

A.O.C. at the end of the day is a political cheap shot artist with feelings. That works great for twitter and her lil district in New York and of course the Instagram people eat that up but Pete has it nailed down here.

The way the system is set up now you need to bring in corporate cash by the bundles. This silly notion that Warren and Bernie are running on is great for small rallies and a fabulous talking point but not for a serious run for the Presidency.

That A.O.C. even took issue with the “pocket change” comment shows that she is way in overhead here. This is another reason why Nancy Pelosi will probably soon send her to the gulag while the adults in the Democratic caucus try to figure out the impeachment mess they have gotten themselves into.

The radical feelings over facts crowd of the Democratic party’s base right now are much more aligned with the Bernie factions than the more moderate faction like the Mayor. Buttigieg, it sounds like is much more in tune with how to win an election nationally with his statements here which is A.O.C. and the other kids lashed out.

Not because he is gay or white but because he is right.

At least on this issue.

Someone give Alexandria a gift certificate for another 250 dollar hair cut. Hopefully, that will keep her from taking shots for a while at Mayor Pete.

Bernie Sanders Says He Is Back, But His Campaign Is STILL Toast. Sorry A.O.C.

Westlake Legal Group Untitled-4-300x182 Bernie Sanders Says He Is Back, But His Campaign Is STILL Toast. Sorry A.O.C. white house washington D.C.

Hand Me The Community Socialist Butter, I’m Toast.

Bernie is BACK, home resting after that campaign event took a bit of wind out of his sails.

I wrote here last week after the BIG ENDORSEMENT was announced of A.O.C and the squad of Bernie, that his campaign was over. Even With AOC And The Squad Endorsing Bernie, His Campaign Is Over.

That is still true after yesterday’s massive rally he held declaring HE WAS BACK.

According to CNBC the event was a success on a few levels.

Storming past questions about his health, Bernie Sanders vowed that he’s “more ready than ever” to fight for a political revolution — with a little help from new friends — at a rally Saturday that drew thousands to a New York City park. The rally offered a pointed reminder to skeptics in both political parties that the 78-year-old democratic socialist is still very much a force in the 2020 presidential race.

Sanders opened his remarks by apologizing that he secured a permit for only 20,000 people. His campaign, he said, was forced to close the gates on many more people who were trying to enter the Queens park just across the river from Manhattan.

“To put it bluntly, I am back,” Sanders declared, sparking chants of, “Bernie is back” from the massive crowd.

“I am happy to report to you that I am more than ready — more ready than ever — to carry on with you on the epic struggle that we face today,” he added. “I am more than ready to assume the office of president of the United States.”

The facility was only supposed to hold 20,000 people but an estimated 25,000 people showed up to hear Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez speak warmly about Bernie. Something went possibly wrong though being she did not feel the Bernnnnnn enough to publicly endorse him in her speech.

The issue is still this.

There are 106 days until the Iowa caucuses and you have a 78-year-old man that just had a major operation on the organ that keeps him alive. A guy half his age would be slowed down or stopped by this. There is no shame in admitting that, in fact, it is a function of life after surgery.

Sanders does not have any events scheduled until later this week and then one the following week. They do not have the events listed yet on his campaign site, which I’m sure will be updated but they are wisely keeping this secret being the staff knows what most neutral observers realize. There is not enough time for the 78-year-old firebrand to recover from this type of surgery.

One of his campaign talking points was uttered given in the article above…

Nina Turner, one of Sanders’ national co-chairs, said it “boggles my mind” that Sanders’ critics have embraced “ageism.”

“Life happens to us all,” she said.

What actually is boggling is watching a 78-year-old recovering from his heart attack continue the folly of this campaign.

I fully understand what a crap break this is. Sanders was absolutely robbed by Clinton and DNC in 2016 and now right in the middle of a battle that was slowly turning against him, this happened. All the firepower of the Squad cheer group getting behind him will not be able to change the fact that he should be slowly recuperating at home to get back to 50% of his normal routing from 2017. Throwing in the crazy hectic nonsense of a Presidential campaign in 2019 and this will drain Bernie’s energy faster than he plans to drain a billionaires bank account.

The other democrat’s campaign knives have already come out and are whispering about how long can this go on. Even if he still is in the top 3 for the 4th qtr for fundraising, the campaign calendar is not going to be kind to Bernie.

I truly hope he goes home and gets a lot of rest and gear up for next summer when either Biden or Warren will accept the nomination.

Unfortunately for Bernie and his supporters, it won’t be him.

His campaign is toast.

Alan Dershowitz BLASTS The Democrats Impeachment Theory

Occasionally you can come across someone who is a traditional liberal that you might not agree on social constructs with but does stay consistent on issues like impeachment. Professor Alan Dershowitz is one of these people in my opinion.

Dershowitz has been on occasion one of Donald Trump’s defenders in the media. He was one of the voices saying slow down on the rush to condemn on the Russia probe. His overall point was that even those that were on Trump’s orbit at one point were indicted on things, none of the indictments ever involved the reason for the investigation. Prof. Dershowitz was right on that.

He also opposed impeaching Bill Clinton in 1998 on the evidence the Congress had than.

Now he is urging caution on the Democrats rushing to impeach based on what we have seen publicly so far.

Just as a refresher, Alan Dershowitz is a lifelong Democrat and voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.

In an opinion piece, Dershowitz wrote for The Hill

Many Democrats, including some constitutional law professors, now argue that President Trump can be impeached without evidence of high criminal acts. Some took the opposite view when President Clinton was being impeached. Hypocrisy aside, there are good historical reasons why the impeachment approach of the Democrats is wrong.

During the debates over the impeachment provisions of the Constitution, two differing views of our structure of government were presented. Some Framers argued that a president should be subject to removal by the legislature if he engaged in malfeasance of office or other comparable noncriminal misconduct. The other Framers took the view that giving the legislature such broad authority to remove a president would turn our country into the kind of parliamentary democracy that existed in England, rather than a republic with a strong executive branch.

That is why every advocate of impeachment should pass the “shoe on the other foot” test. Would you support impeachment against a president of your own party if she or he were accused of this conduct? Unless the answer to that question is yes, it would be unprincipled to engage in this process of impeachment taking place on Capitol Hill.

The very notion that with what has been released so far is enough to impeach is nonsensical. Dershowitz in the article correctly points out impeachment is a political process, not necessarily a legal one and should be taken up very carefully. That the Democrats running for President have all called for Trump’s impeachment is incredibly amusing in light of the “shoe on the other foot” theory.

Would any of them want such an incredibly low threshold to get impeached if they held the job?

Possibly the Democrats in their secret hearings that they refuse to let the public see will come across something that will convince America Trump has to be removed before the 2020 election. So far, they are being tight-lipped about what has been said in these hearings which leads me to believe they don’t have much and Adam Schiff once again sold Nancy Pelosi down the river.

I’m not going to hold my breath though that they find the silver bullet and Speaker Pelosi should look at getting better friends in Congress.

A Sensible Alternative Health Care Plan to Medicare For All Is Being Discussed

Westlake Legal Group healthcare-300x200 A Sensible Alternative Health Care Plan to Medicare For All Is Being Discussed white house washington D.C. Steve Forbes Social Media republicans President Trump Politico Morning Briefing Media Healthcare for You Health Care Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats Congress Business & Economy biden Bernie Sanders Bernard Marcus Barack Obama Allow Media Exception 2019

A long time ago ( not really that long) in a country called the United States of America, a President and a Congress forced their fellow countryman into a plan called “Obamacare” that promised to lower costs and that you could keep your doctor.

That did not work out so well. In fact, the party that voted for that lost the majority in both chambers and a thing called the TEA PARTY REVOLUTION was born to roll that and other large government programs back.

Nine years later we still have Obamacare and healthcare is merely a talking point for the Republicans while the Democrats running for President push a thing called “Medicare For All” and take the issue back that they originally screwed up.

Well now a conservative group wants to reignite the discussion with less government is a better approach and they are launching an ad called Healthcare for You.

According to Real Clear Politics

With the presidential election year fast approaching, health care regularly ranks as one of the top issues for voters, and Republicans seem unprepared to create a contrast with their competition. Enter billionaire Bernard Marcus, co-founder of Home Depot and personal friend of Trump.

Marcus has funded a survey of more than 20,000 patients and doctors, other health care providers and small-business owners to develop a framework for a plan that his network hopes congressional and administration Republicans will adopt in time for the election. A product of the conservative Job Creators Network and Physicians for Reform, the blueprint is touted as a personalized plan to compete with Obamacare and Medicare for All.

They call it “Healthcare for You,” and they plan to spend a quarter-million dollars just rolling it out. The first television ad drops Thursday on the heels of the latest Democratic primary debate.

This has to be a multifaceted approach and I like that they will run features a spot of comic telling jokes about healthcare because it is a JOKE ( although not a funny one) what the very people who hoisted Obamacare on us. They broke it and now they want ot tell us how to fix what they broke.

If we needed to overhaul the whole system to kids could stay on their parents’ health care until 27 something is wrong with us.

Some of the proposal’s ideas include…

Changing the way health insurance is bought and sold and regulated by allowing patients to purchase coverage across state lines while giving states more regulatory power.

Lowering drug prices by targeting exemptions that currently allow pharmaceutical middlemen to skirt federal anti-kickback laws.

Creating personal health management accounts, akin to existing health savings accounts, to allow patients to pay for insurance premiums or care with pre-tax dollars.

Targeting medical malpractice laws to better protect physicians from frivolous lawsuits and excessive awards.

Maintaining protections for pre-existing conditions.

This is a good start and I’m happy that someone with a track record of success. Bernard Marcus is helping with this and Forbes CEO, Steve Forbes even tweeted his support earlier today.

The Democrats lied to the American people when they passed Obamacare in 2009 and the Republicans never had the will to overhaul it like the Dems did to pass it. This issue has been lingering on the back burner and it is long past time for conservatives to start having an open discussion on how to improve the system we have instead of the government overhaul the Dems are talking about.

Now is the time and whether or not you like Donald Trump, he just might be the guy to do the overhaul if given the chance.

Time for some honest analysis after the Tuesday CNN Debate Debacle on the candidate who has raised more money in the 3rd quarter than anyone else, Bernie Sanders.

The Sanders campaign raised just over $25 million for the 3rd quarter barely beating out Elizabeth Warren at just under $25 million according to CBS News. That would have made an interesting race going into the 4th quarter of this year as the time runs short before the Iowa caucuses and the New Hamshire primaries for both of these candidates.

Then the first week of October hit and Sanders had a heart attack and that changed the makeup of this whole primary season.

The announcement yesterday that Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and the other members of The Squad will be endorsing Bernie is just a 24-hour temporary shot in the arm that will have no effect on this campaign’s demise. Nice gesture but ultimately meaningless.

So why am I saying this?

According to the CDC, Bernie Sanders was one of 790,000 Americans who have a heart attack every year. Being this was his first, he was one of 580,000 that had that happen this year. Sanders is to be commended that he took the signs seriously and had it treated immediately. This undoubtedly saved his life.

However, with all that positive news, these facts remain.

Tuesday night, anyone who was tuning in at one point or another was watching Sanders more closely than anyone else. Because of our natural curiosity to see if a 78-year-old man who is two weeks from a heart attack looks like he is ok. Every single one of us thought about it and many media outlets talked about it before the debate.

This is not meant to be mean or cruel. This is just the reality of what people think and the health reality of what a 78-year-old man who just had a major heart event goes through.

Anyone who goes through a heart attack and is lucky enough to survive has a recuperation period that has to be taken. Naturally, the younger you are, the shorter that period is generally. Bernie is, no doubt, a vibrant guy for a 78-year-old. He is also now a vibrant 78 yr old who just suffered a heart attack and wisely has been resting at home. His first campaign event since his hospital stay will be this Saturday where he will get endorsed by AOC.

However, the campaign calendar is not going to afford Bernie the time to recover. The Iowa caucuses are in 109 days and the New Hampshire primary is one week later.

I would much rather have a vigorous Bernie Sanders out on the trail making his case for his ideas and that he be defeated in that arena than for him to be sidelined like this. Plus I love Larry Davids’s impersonation of him and I want more of that.

Sanders will still be able to influence the Democratic race for the nomination from the sidelines and yes it will be from the sidelines. I’m sure all of the candidates left will be lobbying him heavily for his endorsement as they should.

However, it is only a matter of time before the lack of campaign events scheduled and the whispers of “Where is Bernie?” become the norm and ultimately force him out of the race. Sanders has proven that he is a force to be reckoned with and he still can be for many years to come.

Just not as a candidate for President of the United States.

Leftist Group is DEMANDING That Democrats Name Who They Would Appoint To Supreme Court

The Left wants a list of who POTUS candidates would put in this building. 

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, even if it involves progressives copying Donald Trump.

Ripping a page right out of Donald Trump’s election playbook from 2016, the group Demand Justice has called for all the Democrats running for President declare publicly who that would nominate out of the handy dandy list they provided.

How convenient and very copy cat-ish of Trump 3 years ago.

According to The Washington Post

Democratic presidential contenders are coming under increased pressure from their base to take a page from Donald Trump’s 2016 playbook and release a shortlist of potential Supreme Court nominees — one part of a larger strategy from party activists to make the courts a central issue in the 2020 race.

Demand Justice, a group founded to counteract the conservative wing’s decades-long advantage over liberals in judicial fights, will release a list of 32 suggested Supreme Court nominees for any future Democratic president as they ramp up their push for the 2020 contenders to do the same.

The slate of potential high court picks includes current and former members of Congress, top litigators battling the Trump administration’s initiatives in court, professors at the nation’s top law schools and public defenders. Eight are sitting judges. They have established track records in liberal causes that Demand Justice hopes will energize the liberal base.

Seems like the progressives have FINALLY learned the lesson of paying some attention to the third branch of the government.

Now you can go ahead and take a look at that list and if you are like me, be absolutely puzzled by who all those people are. Lucky for us commoners, Carrie Severino from the Judicial Crisis Network just yesterday wrote a piece over at National Review called Demand Justice’s SCOTUS List Is Too Extreme Even for Obama that helps give us an idea of the backgrounds of these folks.

From the article…

Demand Justice’s list has 32 names on it. Only four of those are Obama-nominated judges. Shockingly, only eight have any judicial experience at all! While President Trump’s list of Supreme Court nominees currently includes 24 individuals, of whom 23 are experienced federal or state judges, the extremists at Demand Justice have clearly taken a different tack. Their list — which they are lobbying Democratic candidates to adopt — is wholly consumed by far-left activism and identity politics.

They see the courts as their ticket to implementing their radical policy agenda, which includes gutting the First and Second Amendments, establishing a right to illegal immigration and abortion on demand straight through birth, and destroying our economy by imposing burdensome regulations on everyone from Main Street to Wall Street.

When I first read this I thought, well maybe the Obama nominated judges that were confirmed don’t have enough seasoning yet. Then further on reading, I find out that 24 of them don’t have ANY JUDICIAL EXPERIENCE at all.

Did no one pay attention during the Harriet Miers fiasco under Bush 43?

So the left has put together a list of people that they want on the court that the vast majority have ZERO experience on the bench. They are straight-up activists. I actually admire Demand Justice brazen truthfulness here in trying to push this on the Dems.

Severino commented on twitter about how the candidates when finally asked ran from the subject and tried to change the subject like it was the plague.

What this tells me is that the left is organizing to do the same thing conservatives have done but the candidates are not focused on this at the stage of the game they are currently in. This might change after a nominee is picked but for now, it looks like they are more interested in impeachment than who they would put onto the court.

That works for me.

It’s The Economy Stupid

James Carville would be rolling over in his grave if he were in one now being Trump could use his famous line from the 1992 election. The way Carville looks though, he might be sleeping in one actually.

According to a story over at Moody’s   the 45th President will keep his place at 1600 Pennsylvania for another 4 years if the economy holds up.

President Donald Trump looks likely to cruise to reelection next year under three different economic models Moody’s Analytics employed to gauge the 2020 race.

Barring anything unusual happening, the president’s Electoral College victory could easily surpass his 2016 win over Democrat Hillary Clinton, which came by a 304-227 count.

Moody’s based its projections on how consumers feel about their own financial situation, the gains the stock market has achieved during Trump’s tenure and the prospects for unemployment, which has fallen to a 50-year low. Should those variables hold up, the president looks set to get another four-year term.

The modeling has been highly accurate going back to the 1980 election, missing only once.

That one time that their model was wrong? Of course, it was the 2016 election where Donald Trump beat the wife of Bill Clinton.

The lowest electoral number Trump gets in these models is 289 which is above the 270 votes needed to win. The highest he gets is 352 which looks like a pipe dream to me.

This is all factored in on the economy doing well which under ANY OTHER President would be a safe, reliable gauge. However in the “Age of Trump” nothing is the same as it was prior to his election in Nov. of 2016 and you pretty much have to throw the rule book out and start rewriting it.

I live in the State of Michigan which Trump flipped to Republican for the first time since 1988. Team Bill’s wife did not take the threat serious that Michigan was up for grabs until the last 10 days of the election and they lost the state by 11.000 votes.

That is not going to happen again where the Democrats are asleep at the wheel.

So just based on the economy this should be a slam dunk for President Trump and he should win by a country mile.

We will see in less than 13 months if these predictions come true.

Report: U.S. Hit Iran With a Cyber Attack After Saudi Oil Field Was Struck

Get ready, being this is the future of war.

In the wake of the attack on the Saudi oil fields, it looked like we were going to strike Iran once U.S. intelligence confirmed it was indeed the Iranians. President Trump made some comments that we had enough of the behavior of the regime and it looked like an attack would happen at any minute.

Well, it did, just not how it has happened for the past 30 years. A new report out says that the United State did strike Iran but on the cyber level and not with bombs.

According to The Hill

The U.S. hit Iran with a secret cyberattack after a September strike on two Saudi oil facilities that Washington and Riyadh both blame on Tehran, according to Reuters.

Two U.S. officials told the news service that the operation, which took place late last month, targeted Tehran’s ability to spread “propaganda.” One of the officials said the attack hit physical hardware, but declined to provide further information.

“They must have dreamt it,” Iranian Minister of Communications and Information Technology Mohammad Javad Azari-Jahromi responded, according to Iran’s Fars news agency.

One person’s dream is another person’s nightmare.

The United States has been the target of a number of cyberattacks from Russia, China, and North Korea over the past 10 years. Our dependence on the internet and, quite frankly, our grid are an open target for our enemies. So much so that Trump issued an executive order earlier this year about an EMP attack. Trump issued an executive order to prepare for an EMP attack

So, it is not surprising that the U.S would show a bit of what it can do to Iran to give them something to think about and also to Iran’s pals the Russians and the Chi-coms.

Hopefully, our best and brightest are working to make sure we stay ahead of the curve here and prevent this country’s enemies from striking in the same way. The U.S is incredibly dependent on electronic transactions of numerous types and if that capability went down or the power grid was fried, this country would be tested like never before.

As President Trump showed with this move, we can attack you without dropping bombs on your country.

We need to keep the same thing in mind in this country.

V.P. Mike Pence Tells House Committees No Thanks on Impeachment Inquiry

You just know that when the Veep told the House committee people he would not cooperate he was really nice about it also.

Late Tuesday night, the Vice President of the United States, through counsel, informed the House committees that are scrounging around doing impeachment-like things that he would not play along.

According to Axios

The counsel for Vice President Mike Pence sent a letter to the chairmen of the House committees investigating President Trump and Ukraine on Tuesday informing them that he will not cooperate with a request for documents in their “self-proclaimed” impeachment inquiry.

This was fully expected, so no surprise.

However, the announcement that Nancy Pelosi blinked and will not hold an impeachment vote as of now means that the White House strategy of pressuring the House to hold a formal vote has worked. Pence and other White House officials will not face much pressure until the House holds a vote or they take this to the courts. The courts won’t take this up soon so this is looking like a suave move by the White House.

The Trump administration is still going to have its hands full dealing with other aspects of this Ukraine story but for now, the House vote on Impeachment is tabled and the Vice President of the United States can just hang out and do what V.P’s do.

Which I’m not sure of exactly.

Here is the letter sent on behalf of the Vice President…

Dear Chairmen:

The Office of the Vice President has received the Committees’ Letter to the Vice President, dated October 4, 2019, which requests a wide-ranging scope of documents, some of which are clearly not vice-presidential records, pursuant to a self-proclaimed “impeachment inquiry.” As noted in the October 8, 2019 letter from the White House Counsel to each of you and to Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the purported “impeachment inquiry” has been designed and implemented in a manner that calls into question your commitment to fundamental fairness and due process rights.

The Office of the Vice President recognizes the oversight role of your respective committees in Congress. Please know that if the Committees wish to return to the regular order of legitimate legislative oversight requests, and the Committees have appropriate requests for information solely in the custody of the Office of the Vice President, we are prepared to work with you in a manner consistent with well-established bipartisan constitutional protections and a respect for the separation of powers. Until that time, the Office of the Vice President will continue to reserve all rights and privileges that may apply, including those protecting executive privileges, national security, attorney-client communications, deliberations, and communications among the President, the Vice President, and their advisors.

As detailed in the White House Counsel Letter, the House of Representatives has not authorized any “impeachment inquiry.” Specifically, the operative House rules do not delegate to any committee the authority to conduct an inquiry under the impeachment power of Article I, Section 2 of the Constitution. Instead of being accountable to the American people and casting a vote to authorize what all agree is a substantial constitutional step, you have instead attempted to avoid this fundamental requirement by invoking the Speaker’s announcement of an “official impeachment inquiry” at a press conference? Never before in history has the Speaker of the House attempted to launch an “impeachment inquiry” against a President without a majority of the House of Representatives voting to authorize a constitutionally acceptable process.

The Office of the Vice President encourages the Committees to forgo their request to the Office of the Vice President, or hold it in abeyance, pending your discussion with the White House Counsel’s Office concerning compliance with constitutionally mandated procedures. Similarly, the Office of the Vice President encourages the Committees to first seek information from primary sources that may be responsive to your broad requests.

Sincerely,
Matthew E. Morgan

Counsel to the Vice President
