Chuck Todd Melts Down When GOP Sen. Brings Up John Brennan and Democratic Meddling During 2016 Election

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) appeared on “Meet the Press” with Chuck Todd to talk about comments a U.S. diplomat made in relation to the Ukraine phone call made by President Donald Trump.

But when Johnson began to reference John Brennan and leaks from the CIA that hurt Trump as well as the allegations that Democrats solicited Ukrainian help in 2016 in order to undermine the Trump campaign, Todd had a melt down and refused to let him continue.

From Daily Caller:

“You ought to ask Director Brennan: What did Peter Strzok mean when he texted Lisa Page on Dec. 15, 2016?” Johnson began, referring to two of the former FBI officials who worked on the Trump-Russia probe.

Todd said: “Senator, what does this have to do with Ukraine?”

Johnson read from a text message that Strzok sent Page in which he speculated that the CIA was behind leaks for political reasons.

“Think our sisters have begun leaking like mad. Scorned and worried and political, they’re kicking in to overdrive,” Strzok wrote Page on Dec. 15, 2016.

Johnson then tried to bring up the alleged Democratic solicitation of info from Ukraine to undermine the Trump campaign. He referenced a Politico article that detailed the solicitation and the allegation that it worked, Paul Manafort was fired and that undermined the campaign.

Todd flipped out and called that “Fox News conspiracy propaganda,” completely ignoring that it was from Politico and that a Ukrainian court has found there was meddling. Some “conspiracy.” Yet he had no problem with spending time on what was actually a false hoax, Russia collusion.

Johnson replied that Todd’s reaction and refusal to listen is one of the reasons that people have a problem with media, because they don’t want to look at issues that can hurt the Democrats.

Instead of actually allowing Johnson to make his point, Todd said Johnson was only about trying to make Trump feel better by not being critical of him.

“Senator Johnson, please,” Todd said at one point during the contentious interview. “Can we please answer the question that I asked you instead of trying to make [President] Donald Trump feel better here that you’re not criticizing him?”

As the Daily Caller notes, Todd has a long history of turning a blind eye to many of the allegations of wrongdoing by the CIA, FBI or Democrats during the 2016 election.

U.S. Attorney John Durham is looking into what the Democrats did in terms of Ukraine and John Brennan has said that he is going to be interviewed by Durham about the origins of the Russia probe.

Protesters Storm the Supreme Court, Block the Streets, Then Surround Mitch McConnell’s House

Here’s a good reminder why not to vote for Democrats, if anyone needed one.

What Democrats did last year to smear Justice Brett Kavanaugh to stop his confirmation was just despicable.

You saw Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) sit on an allegation until it was convenient to drop. You saw people like Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), now presidential candidates but auditioning at the time for the base, get busted spreading falsehoods in the effort.

This is some of the insanity they incited.

It didn’t matter if they smeared a good man’s name forever if they got what they wanted.

Fortunately, they failed.

But some are still trying to push the narrative.

A group of protesters stormed the Supreme Court today, blocked traffic and screamed about Kavanaugh, calling to “Impeach the mother f**ker!” Townhall’s Julio Rosas caught the action.

They spoke of Merrick Garland and had Julie Swetnick among their number. You may recall Swetnick who told the farcical story about Kavanaugh “gang rape parties,” whose story kept changing and who, along with Michael Avenatti, was referred for criminal investigation based on their actions. But these folks cheered her like she was a returning hero, saying “We believe you!”

Best way not to get people to support your cause? Prevent them from getting where they want to go.

Warning graphic language:

They then went to Sen. Mitch McConnell’s house, shouted and wrapped caution tape around it.

They don’t realize they’re the ones attacking the proper process of the courts, not McConnell.

Every time they do something like this, another Republican voter gets his wings.

This is why we vote, to make sure that these folks never get back more power.

Dem Rep Supporting Impeachment Gets Blasted by Voters for Spreading ‘Fake News’ About Ukraine Call

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-10-06-at-2.12.08-PM Dem Rep Supporting Impeachment Gets Blasted by Voters for Spreading ‘Fake News’ About Ukraine Call Impeachment of President Trump impeachment Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post donald trump democrats Congress angry voters Allow Media Exception 2020

Screenshot from this video.

There are 31 House districts where voters are pro-Trump and voted for him in 2016, but who also voted for Democratic candidates for the House in 2018.

People have been speculating that these Democrats will face some backlash as they go into their re-election if they support impeachment against President Donald Trump.

Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-MI) is one who found out how real that backlash can be when she tried to push her rationale for impeachment at a constituent event. She said that “the issue that got to me, was that the president, the most powerful man in the world, reached out to a foreigner, to a foreign leader, and asked him to dig up dirt on an American.” But voters were not buying her recasting of the call. People in the audience immediately called that out as false, “Not true,” some shouted. “Fake news,” cried someone else.

Good on CNN’s John King for reporting on it, he’s one of the few reporters at CNN who doesn’t seem married to pushing the Democratic narrative.

The problem with her statement is that it wasn’t true, as the folks in the audience who spoke correctly noted. Trump asked the president not to “dig up dirt” on an opponent but to take a look if the investigation was legitimately shut down. Big difference. Here’s the relevant part in the call:

Sounds like Slotkin is repeating the fabricated version of events pushed by her colleague, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA). But voters were having none of it, which may not bode well for her re-election.

Apparently, she has no problem with Hillary Clinton using foreign national Chris Steele to reach out for Russian info on Donald Trump or the DNC again allegedly reaching out for information to Ukrainian officials on Manafort to undermine the Trump campaign, also in 2016. U.S. Attorney John Durham is now looking into some of those questions.

CNN previously depicted Slotkin as a “badass” for daring to support impeachment, basically delivering a campaign ad for her and the other women lawmakers they were praising for going against Trump.

She also is a former CIA officer (who seem to be all over the Ukraine matter) and a former Obama administration official, as an Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs.

Stop the Madness: Joy Reid Panel Explains How Dems Can Make Pelosi President

Westlake Legal Group nancy-pelosi-cbs-this-morning-closeup-SCREENSHOT Stop the Madness: Joy Reid Panel Explains How Dems Can Make Pelosi President Ukraine Politics pence Media impeachment Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post democrats Congress am joy Allow Media Exception

Democrats have been desperate to get rid of President Donald Trump ever since he was elected.

First they tried getting him through the Mueller investigation, now they’re trying the Ukraine call.

But the problem they face in any event is that even if they were somehow able to impeach and convict Trump, they still would be left with Pence, who they also hate. And they still wouldn’t get the control they so deeply crave.

So as we noted yesterday, Democrats seem to be trying to construct an impeachment case against Pence as well, even thought that’s even sillier and more implausible a road to success than that against Trump.

They don’t seem to understand that you can’t impeach someone just because you don’t like him and want power.

But if you wonder how much Democrats are descending into madness, this “AM Joy” panel that Twitchy caught is the perfect example.

All of these adult people and yet nothing they say is based in reality or sense.

You ready? Here goes:

“You could impeach Pence first. The problem is that Donald Trump then has to name his replacement. But I think that maybe a deal could be struck where he was told, if you don’t make a replacement, then Nancy Pelosi does become president.”

Please, folks, Constitution and sanity. That’s not happening, so why even say it? Of course, that woman was preceded by another woman who was equally unhinged talking about how Pence was so “deeply” involved in the corruption he had to go. What?

They are completely out in conspiracy land. Of course, most of these folks were pushing the Russia collusion hoax as a fact, despite it not being true. And Joy Reid has her own issues, given the person who hacked her blog and put all those bigoted things there that she herself certainly didn’t say. Reid told us that she had called the FBI, how’s that case going?

But yes, every time you think that they can’t hit a bottom, they keep going lower. Train off the rails crazy.

Please people, you lost. Get over it. Get a grip.

If all you’re going to do going into 2020 is push impeachment and you include Mike Pence too, prepare to lose again.

They’re Coming for Mike Pence Too

Democrats have been trying to find some reason to impeach President Donald Trump since the moment he was elected.

They thought they might have something with the Mueller investigation. That, of course, didn’t pan out.

Now, they’ve moved on to the Ukraine whistleblower story. But that’s not doing too well either.

However, not only are they trying to get Trump on that one, they’re also seem to be hoping to take down Vice President Mike Pence as well.

Among the people sent requests for information from the House investigating committees was Vice President Mike Pence.

From Fox News:

A letter sent from House Democrats to Vice President Mike Pence requesting documents as part of the impeachment inquiry was based on “fake news,” the vice president’s Chief of Staff Marc Short said Saturday.

Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., gave Pence until October 15 to produce pertinent documents.

Now is this getting more than a little silly or what?

What do they think that Pence is supposed to know?

According to Fox, the chairmen of the Committees wrote, “…public reports have raised questions about any role [Pence] may have played in conveying or reinforcing the President’s stark message to the Ukrainian President.”

No, no rational person thinks that Pence had anything to do with anything.

The only thing he’s done wrong apparently is to be the Vice President and the one standing in line between the presidency and the next in line, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). And if Democrats think they can go there, they really have had their train go off the trolley.

Short said House Democrats only wanted to focus on impeachment and that Americans were tired of it. “President Zelensky himself said he felt no pressure. From the President or the Vice President. That should have ended a lot of these inquiries at that point,” Short declared.

“And, as opposed to working on things that we could actually be working on together — like lowering drug prices or continuing to create new jobs with new trade deals — Democrats want to focus on these continued investigations,” Short lamented.

“I think this administration’s continued to deliver for the American people in rebuilding the military, in securing the border and confirming a record number of judges. And, just yesterday, more evidence of this booming economy with 3.5 percent unemployment rate,” he touted. “The economy is booming. Democrats don’t want to talk about that, and so they’ve been focused on impeachment.”

Short pointed out that there were 21 Democrats in districts Trump won in 2016. He said those folks needed to be pressed, ‘Are you actually going to help your constituents to do things that are beneficial for the American people or are you siding with Nancy Pelosi and these endless investigations?”

The White House has indicated that they will refuse to comply with requests, calling it an illegitimate inquiry because there hasn’t been a formal vote for the inquiry by the full House as has occurred in past cases with Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton. House Republicans have registered their displeasure this past week with Pelosi’s handling of the matter on that point as well as on the lack of bipartisan questioning allegedly in some of the committee hearings so far.

Democrats are likely hoping that they can then use the refusal of the White House to call that obstruction and add that as a potential charge.

Trump Releases ‘Pinocchio’ Video Mocking Adam Schiff

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-10-05-at-11.45.00-AM Trump Releases ‘Pinocchio’ Video Mocking Adam Schiff whistleblower Ukraine Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post donald trump democrats Congress Allow Media Exception adam schiff

Screenshot from this video.

President Donald Trump is not shy about using media to call out Democrats.

He showed that on Friday when he tweeted out a video, mocking Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) for saying he had not spoken with the whistleblower and had no knowledge of the nature of the complaint while behind the scenes his staff did have contact and he himself had heard from the whistleblower about his concerns.

The video, which mocks Schiff as “Pinocchio,” was a take-off on the liberal Washington Post giving Schiff four Pinocchios, its highest rating for falsehoods. They called Schiff’s comments about not having contact with the whistleblower “flat-out false.”

The video does a good job of listing the very obvious conflicts between Schiff’s public remarks and what was going on behind the scenes.

From Daily Wire:

Schiff allegedly lied to the American public during the following exchange on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on September 17:

Sam Stein: “Have you heard from the whistleblower? Do you want to hear from the whistleblower? What protections could you provide to the whistleblower?” …

Schiff: “We have not spoken directly with the whistleblower. We would like to. But I am sure the whistleblower has concerns that he has not been advised, as the law requires, by the inspector general or the director of national Intelligence just how he is supposed to communicate with Congress, and so the risk to the whistleblower is retaliation.”

Schiff also publicly said on September 19 that they would not have even known about the complaint but for the ICIG releasing it, clearly trying to blame the administration and suggest they were withholding it from him and Congress. But, of course, he already knew about it, since it was a staffer from his committee who had referred the whistleblower to the ICIG and who said he advised Schiff. Additionally, Schiff had already received a letter from the whistleblower on August 12, detailing the concerns, containing an attachment (the complaint was dated Aug. 12) and no doubt signed by the whistleblower. Yet publicly, he never mentioned that in his September statements and, when asked about the identity of the person, claimed not to know who the whistleblower was, as the Trump video points out.

Schiff justifiably earned the ire of many when he fabricated quotes from the president during a live televised committee hearing about what was supposedly said in the Trump Ukraine phone call. He later claimed that the comments were “parody,” did not apologize for them and continued to falsely characterize the phone call in an interview with George Stephanopoulos.

Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) tweeted in response: “When you don’t have facts on your side some just make it up. The opening statement by their ring leader was #FullofSchiff. House Dems blatantly lying to justify their impeachment inquiry is horribly timed, poorly written and badly intentioned.”

Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) tweeted in response: “It is disturbing and outrageous that Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff opens up a hearing of this importance with improvised fake dialogue between President Trump and President Zelensky. We should focus on the facts.”

Gowdy: Schiff Has Made Himself a Fact Witness in Ukraine Matter and Should be Called to Testify

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-10-05-at-9.15.53-AM Gowdy: Schiff Has Made Himself a Fact Witness in Ukraine Matter and Should be Called to Testify Uncategorized Ukraine Trey Gowdy Media Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post democrats Congress Allow Media Exception adam schiff

Screenshot from this Fox video

Former Chair of the House Intelligence Committee, Trey Gowdy, had a few things to say about his former colleague, the present chair, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and the drama surrounding his handling and involvement in the Ukraine whistleblower call matter.

The former federal prosecutor Gowdy immediately pointed out the huge problem for Schiff having contacts with the whistleblower. “Right now, he’s made himself a fact witness. He is in the evidentiary chain for what happened with this whistleblower and I hope the Republicans make him testify,” Gowdy explained.

Gowdy also blasted Schiff for even getting four Pinocchios from the liberal Washington Post after Schiff’s public stories about his contacts with the whistleblower and knowledge of his claim didn’t seem to match the facts. The WaPo called Schiff’s comments “flat out false.”

From Fox News:

“I think you got four [Pinocchios] only because you can’t get five,” Gowdy joked. “He got the maximum sentence you could get from the Washington Post fact checker — and don’t you know how hard that was for the Washington Post to give Adam Schiff four Pinocchios?”

“That’s the Seventh sign of the Apocalypse,” Gowdy laughed. “I think I have to get my affairs in order.”

Gowdy hit Schiff for his history of not being truthful, referring to him as a “career offender.”

“The same guy that had the parody a week or so ago, the same guy that says he has evidence that even [former Special Counsel Robert] Mueller couldn’t find,” Gowdy said. “The question I had is, How long is Speaker Pelosi going to put up with Adam mishandling this investigation?”

We still haven’t seen that “evidence” that Schiff claims conclusively proved the Trump team colluded with Russia.

Gowdy also pointedly observed that Pelosi seems to have swiped the matter from Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), the chair of the Judiciary Committee who would normally handle an impeachment inquiry and handed it over to Schiff who is messing up. But of course, nothing is normal about this and it isn’t even a formal inquiry yet. If this were a formal inquiry, Republicans would have the right to question him.

Too bad Gowdy isn’t still in Congress to be able to question Schiff about all this? Wouldn’t that be something?

That said, Schiff definitely needs to be called to account, as Gowdy says.

This places the whole process at risk and it should not be tolerated.

But is Speaker Nancy Pelosi likely to hold Schiff’s feet to the fire?

Given that she actually defended Schiff’s fake account of the Trump Ukraine phone call, saying incredibly that “he didn’t make it up,” one can’t have a lot of confidence that she will.

NY Times Tries to Save Sinking Ship: Claims a Second Ukraine Call Person ‘May’ Make Whistleblower Complaint

Westlake Legal Group ny-times NY Times Tries to Save Sinking Ship: Claims a Second Ukraine Call Person ‘May’ Make Whistleblower Complaint whistleblower complain discredited Ukraine schiff Media Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post fake news donald trump democrats Congress

The NY Times is at it again. The Ukraine whistleblower complaint is imploding. So they’re trying to pull from the ‘Kavanaugh playbook’ and double down on the claim that there was something wrong in the July 25th phone call.

From Fox News:

A second U.S. intelligence official is considering filing a formal whistleblower complaint about President Trump’s dealings with the government of Ukraine, according to a report.

The New York Times, citing “two people briefed on the matter,” reported late Friday that the official “has more direct information” about the events surrounding a July 25 phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky than the first whistleblower, whose complaint launched a formal impeachment inquiry by House Democrats.

According to one of the anonymous people, the ICIG has spoken to this second person to try to corroborate the original whistleblower who didn’t actually hear the call.

So let’s see if we have that right.

Now we don’t even have an actual claim on the table, someone who hasn’t even made a whistleblower complaint, but two anonymous people tell us we might get one? Really? Are they joking at this point? And the anonymous people and the “not really yet but we’ll call him that anyway” second whistleblower want to tell us about a call that we’ve already heard about from the people actually on the call?

We’ve already seen the transcript of the July 25th call that showed there was no quid pro quo about foreign aid and we’ve already heard from the most important person in the matter, the Ukraine president who said he felt no pressure at all. No one on the call has said there was anything improper.

On the other hand, we’ve seen a lot of machinations from the Democrats, from Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) not being forthcoming about his contacts with the whistleblower and making up supposed Trump quotes from the call to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) claiming he didn’t make anything up and trying to ram through an impeachment inquiry without the bipartisan formal vote required. We’ve seen the Volker testimony blow a big chunk of the whistleblower’s claims apart. We’ve even seen a report now that the whistleblower didn’t tell the ICIG about his contacts with Adam Schiff.

Just a coincidence, one of the reporters on this NY Times article is Michael Schmidt, the same guy who James Comey leaked to through his friend.

So Democrats now want a do-over after the first try failed?

How’d doubling down work in the case of Brett Kavanaugh?

At what point do we say this is just silly?

Democrats want to do anything they can to attack Trump and try to cloud the view of the facts.

Because they really can’t handle the truth. It’s the truth that’s going to do them in 2020.

It’s pretty hard to get around the great economy that President Donald Trump has ushered in.

The latest report shows that unemployment has hit an incredible 50 year low.

From CNBC:

The jobless rate dropped 0.2 percentage points to 3.5%, matching a level it last saw in December 1969. A more encompassing measure that includes discouraged workers and the underemployed also fell, declining 0.3 percent points to 6.9%, matching its lowest in nearly 19 years and just off the all-time low of 6.8%.

The rate for Hispanics hit a record low, while the level for African Americans stayed at the lowest number ever.

Those great numbers also pushed the stock market up. The Dow rallied more than 350 points after the report came out.

Sorry, Democrats, some of you who hoped a recession might hit and do Trump in, continue to be out of luck.

And even in the climate of Democrats, with the aid of media, throwing everything they can at Trump, his poll numbers are defying expectations.

In spite of everything, Trump’s numbers are the highest of the year at 49% approval in the Hill Harris Survey and Trump’s raking in record dollars in the third quarter, at $125 million, a lot of it from people angry with the whole impeachment charade.

Doubtless, they’ll pull out more stuff to try to throw at Trump, especially come 2020.

But it’s really hard to argue with success.

Especially when all your opponents have are tired old socialist thoughts

As the CNBC poll article accurately notes, Americans voted Trump in as the change agent.

And he’s delivering.

‘Flat-Out False’: Unlikely Source Calls Out Adam Schiff For Lying About Dealings With Whistleblower

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., talks to reporters about the release by the White House of a transcript of a call between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Voldymyr Zelenskiy, at the Capitol in Washington, Wednesday, Sept. 25, 2019. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)

As we all know, a broken clock is right twice a day, and in this instance the broken clock is none other than the reliably left-leaning crew at the Washington Post.

Glenn Kessler, the paper’s fact checker, surprisingly took House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff to the woodshed today for recent (false) claims he made stating his office had “not spoken directly with the whistleblower” at the center of the Trump/Zelensky phone call controversy:

“Have you heard from the whistleblower? Do you want to hear from the whistleblower? What protections could you provide to the whistleblower?” [Sam] Stein, an MSNBC contributor, asked on “Morning Joe.”

“We have not spoken directly with the whistleblower. We would like to,” Schiff responded. “But I am sure the whistleblower has concerns that he has not been advised, as the law requires, by the inspector general or the director of national Intelligence just how he is supposed to communicate with Congress, and so the risk to the whistleblower is retaliation.”

The Post said Schiff’s response was “flat-out false.”

“Schiff on ‘Morning Joe’ clearly made a statement that was false,” the fact-checker said. “He now says he’s was answering the wrong question, but if that was the case, he should have quickly corrected the record. He compounded his falsehood by telling reporters a few days later that if not for the [inspector general’s] office, the committee would not have known about the complaint. That again suggested there had been no prior communication.”

Kessler also pointed out two other instances of Schiff being dishonest on this same question. One of them was during a CNN interview with Anderson Cooper and the other was during a Capitol Hill press conference.

As a result of his “flat-out false” comments, Kessler awarded Schiff with four Pinocchios.

Kessler, who I suspect has a mostly liberal audience of loyal Twitter followers, took issue with President Trump’s touting of the ruling, and made note several times of the fact that he had ruled similarly on some Trump claims as well. But his tweets sorta kinda missed the point:

I helpfully fact checked the fact checker himself:

Sometimes they make it too easy.
