Fucking beautiful.


RESOLUTION

Calling for the resignation and disbarment of United States Attorney General William P. Barr, and for other purposes.

Whereas, on March 24, 2019, United States Attorney General William P. Barr deliberately mischaracterized the “Report On The Investigation Into Russian Interference In The 2016 Presidential Election” issued by Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller, III;

Whereas, on March 25, 2019, at Attorney General Barr’s direction, the Department of Justice ceased defending the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Public Law 111–148), a duly enacted law under the United States Constitution;

Whereas, on April 24, 2019, Attorney General Barr directed then-Acting Assistant Attorney General John Gore of the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division to defy a subpoena from the House Oversight and Reform Committee pertaining to its investigation of the 2020 census;

Whereas, on July 8, 2019, Attorney General Barr deliberately mischaracterized the legal reasoning behind the Trump administration’s desire to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census and abruptly removed career Department of Justice attorneys in an unprecedented attempt to undermine a ruling by the Supreme Court of the United States;

Whereas, on July 16, 2019, Attorney General Barr ignored the recommendation of the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division by declining to bring charges against the New York Police Department officer in the death of Eric Garner;

Whereas, on July 17, 2019, the United States House of Representatives voted to hold Attorney General Barr in criminal contempt of Congress for his refusal to comply with a duly-issued subpoena and deliberate obstruction of congressional oversight authority;

Whereas, on December 4, 2019, Attorney General Barr threatened the withholding of police protection from communities that do not show “support and respect” to law enforcement, a statement that has been interpreted as being directed at communities of color that protest police violence;

Whereas Attorney General Barr has perpetuated and promulgated conspiracy theories that have been repeatedly debunked by United States law enforcement and intelligence agencies, including before a Senate Appropriations Committee hearing, where he referred to legitimate and legal law enforcement surveillance as “spying”, and while traveling abroad to meet with foreign intelligence officials where he has continued to spread this dis­in­for­ma­tion;

Whereas Attorney General Barr has used taxpayer funds for international travel to seek foreign assistance in investigating a domestic political rival of the President of the United States;

Whereas Attorney General Barr has sought to undermine the Department of Justice inspector general’s report “Review of Four FISA Applications and Other Aspects of the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane Investigation”, regarding the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s investigation of the Trump campaign; and

Whereas Attorney General Barr has refused to recuse himself from any Ukraine-related matters in which he is allegedly involved: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the House of Representatives—

(1) condemns United States Attorney General William P. Barr for his despicable comments and actions;

(2) calls on United States Attorney General William P. Barr to resign;

(3) calls on the Virginia State Bar to remove United States Attorney General William P. Barr from its rolls;

(4) calls on the New York State Bar Association to remove United States Attorney General William P. Barr from its rolls;

(5) calls on the District of Columbia Bar to remove United States Attorney General William P. Barr from its rolls;

(6) reaffirms support for the diversity of the United States; and

(7) reaffirms, in the strongest terms, its support for and commitment to the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution.

H.Res.755 – Impeaching Donald John Trump, President of the United States, for high crimes and misdemeanors

ARTICLE II: OBSTRUCTION OF CONGRESS

The Constitution provides that the House of Representatives “shall have the sole Power of Impeachment” and that the President “shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors”. In his conduct of the office of President of the United States—and in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed—Donald J. Trump has directed the unprecedented, categorical, and indiscriminate defiance of subpoenas issued by the House of Representatives pursuant to its “sole Power of Impeachment”. President Trump has abused the powers of the Presidency in a manner offensive to, and subversive of, the Constitution, in that:

The House of Representatives has engaged in an impeachment inquiry focused on President Trump’s corrupt solicitation of the Government of Ukraine to interfere in the 2020 United States Presidential election. As part of this impeachment inquiry, the Committees undertaking the investigation served subpoenas seeking documents and testimony deemed vital to the inquiry from various Executive Branch agencies and offices, and current and former officials.

In response, without lawful cause or excuse, President Trump directed Executive Branch agencies, offices, and officials not to comply with those subpoenas. President Trump thus interposed the powers of the Presidency against the lawful subpoenas of the House of Representatives, and assumed to himself functions and judgments necessary to the exercise of the “sole Power of Impeachment” vested by the Constitution in the House of Representatives.

President Trump abused the powers of his high office through the following means:

(1) Directing the White House to defy a lawful subpoena by withholding the production of documents sought therein by the Committees.

(2) Directing other Executive Branch agencies and offices to defy lawful subpoenas and withhold the production of documents and records from the Committees—in response to which the Department of State, Office of Management and Budget, Department of Energy, and Department of Defense refused to produce a single document or record.

(3) Directing current and former Executive Branch officials not to cooperate with the Committees—in response to which nine Administration officials defied subpoenas for testimony, namely John Michael “Mick” Mulvaney, Robert B. Blair, John A. Eisenberg, Michael Ellis, Preston Wells Griffith, Russell T. Vought, Michael Duffey, Brian McCormack, and T. Ulrich Brechbuhl.

These actions were consistent with President Trump’s previous efforts to undermine United States Government investigations into foreign interference in United States elections.

Through these actions, President Trump sought to arrogate to himself the right to determine the propriety, scope, and nature of an impeachment inquiry into his own conduct, as well as the unilateral prerogative to deny any and all information to the House of Representatives in the exercise of its “sole Power of Impeachment”. In the history of the Republic, no President has ever ordered the complete defiance of an impeachment inquiry or sought to obstruct and impede so comprehensively the ability of the House of Representatives to investigate “high Crimes and Misdemeanors”. This abuse of office served to cover up the President’s own repeated misconduct and to seize and control the power of impeachment—and thus to nullify a vital constitutional safeguard vested solely in the House of Representatives.

In all of this, President Trump has acted in a manner contrary to his trust as President and subversive of constitutional government, to the great prejudice of the cause of law and justice, and to the manifest injury of the people of the United States.

Wherefore, President Trump, by such conduct, has demonstrated that he will remain a threat to the Constitution if allowed to remain in office, and has acted in a manner grossly incompatible with self-governance and the rule of law. President Trump thus warrants impeachment and trial, removal from office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust, or profit under the United States.

We’re POLITICO journalists and we’re co-hosting next week’s Democratic presidential debate. Ask us anything about the 2020 race.

Westlake Legal Group 3JaO-VlXIHd31GXSESLOs7dy67DE-qXGyGNUYcUxwd0 We’re POLITICO journalists and we’re co-hosting next week’s Democratic presidential debate. Ask us anything about the 2020 race. r/politics

We’re co-hosting the PBS NewsHour/POLITICO Debate next Thursday, Dec. 19 – just weeks before the Iowa caucuses, the first time voters will have their say in the 2020 campaign. So far, seven candidates have qualified to be onstage, according to our tracking of public polling and donor information:

  • Joe Biden

  • Pete Buttigieg

  • Amy Klobuchar

  • Bernie Sanders

  • Tom Steyer

  • Elizabeth Warren

  • Andrew Yang

Tulsi Gabbard is still in the mix to qualify, but her qualification deadline is tomorrow, Dec. 12. (No candidate’s qualification is official until it is confirmed by the DNC after the deadline.)

Ask us anything about the 2020 race. Our line-up:

Carrie Budoff Brown is the editor of POLITICO. She oversees our 225-person newsroom, all of whom either report to her or report to someone who eventually reports up to her. Basically, she’s the big boss, and we’re excited she’s able to join us for her first AMA.

Tim Alberta will be one of the moderators on next week’s debate stage. He’s our chief political correspondent and is widely recognized as one of the most skilled political reporters of his generation. Tim covers a range of topics, including: the Trump presidency, Capitol Hill, the ideological warfare between and within the two parties, demographic change in America, and the evolving role of money in elections. He’s the author of NYT bestseller “American Carnage,” which explores the making of the modern Republican Party (he hosted an AMA here on his book a few months ago).

Laura Barrón-López is a national political reporter for us, covering the 2020 presidential race. Having covered Congress for nearly eight years, Laura covers candidates relationships with lawmakers, demographic changes across the country in battleground states, and centers much of her reporting on race and ethnicity in the 2020 presidential cycle. She often appears on CNN as a political analyst.

Zach Montellaro is a campaign reporter who writes our daily Morning Score election newsletter and covers everything from campaign finance, polling and the stuff you care about — debate qualifications. He runs POLITICO’s debate qualification tracker (along with campaign editor Steve Shepard) and has written one too many stories about the debate stage. He will not answer any questions about the movie Rampart.

Michael Calderone is our senior media reporter. He zeroes in on the intersection of media and politics (and watches way too much cable news) and has been keeping a close eye on how moderators from different media orgs have been handling the recent debates. Recently, he’s written on The Hill’s controversial Ukraine columns at the center of the impeachment fight, along with the boom of podcasts keeping listeners up to speed on the hearings and developments. He’s also reported lately how the New York Times is overhauling its 2020 endorsement process – complete with big TV reveal – and the challenges Bloomberg News faces covering owner and Democratic candidate Michael Bloomberg.

( Proof. )

P.S. There’s still some time to submit a question for us to ask on the debate stage. We’re closing this form at the end of this week.

We’ll start answering questions at noon ET.
