Could Pelosi Be President?

by Daveda Gruber

Even President Trump brought it up. Is it possible that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi could become president if the 2020 election is delayed or if the Electoral College has not yet named a successor?

Well, it depends on lots other factors.

Judge Andrew Napolitano, who is a senior judicial analyst for FOX News, has a theory.

While on FOX Business with Stuart Varney, Napolitano said, “It might be right. President Trump’s term ends at precisely noon on Jan. 20, 2021. If the Electoral College has not yet named a successor, presumably either Donald Trump or Joe Biden, then whoever is the speaker of the House would become the acting president of the United States.”

He went on to say, “If the Democrats retain their majority in the House, and it appears likely that they will, but if they do, and if they choose Mrs. Pelosi, knowing at that point that they’re choosing the president of the United States, then it would be she.”

The judge added, “Stated simply, whoever is the sitting speaker of the United States, would become president at noon on Jan. 20, 2021, if the Electoral College has failed to elect someone.”

So then, if the House gets flipped, the Speaker of the House would be a Republican. That person would likely be House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy and he would become the interim president.

The Electoral College consists of 538 electors, and an absolute majority of at least 270 electoral votes is required to win the election.

But I see another scenario that could happen. If ballots are not counted because of mail in ballots and the Post office’s inability to deliver them in time, the Electoral College doesn’t have the ability to see who was elected. They also don’t know who would have the majority in the House or the Senate, for that matter.

According to the Constitution,  Congress would run the country. But then the outgoing Congress would not be known nor would the incoming Congress be known.

That would lead to an unprecedented situation. There is no law in place that would cover this type of a circumstance.

Hopefully, enough votes will be counted to determine a winner.

My prediction is that when all is said and done, we will have re-elected Trump.

McCarthy Blames Pelosi for Personal Wish List

by Daveda Gruber

On Sunday House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., wasn’t timid in blaming Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi D- Calif., for her personal wish list being the problem for Congress not being able to pass another stimulus bill.

McCarthy also defended the use of executive orders by President Trump.

The executive orders defer payroll taxes and replace already expired unemployment befits, as of August 1st, but with a lower amount that would be up to $400 payments each week, one-third less than the $600 people had been receiving.

Trump’s executive orders extends previous unemployment benefits, which expired on Aug. 1, was fully funded by Washington, but Trump is asking states to now cover 25 percent.

McCarthy did an interview on “Sunday Morning Futures” a day after Trump signed his executive orders following the collapse of negotiations with Congress on a new coronavirus rescue package and said, “Remember, every time we’ve done legislation when it comes to COVID, Nancy Pelosi has always held it up for her own personal wish list. Remember when we did the Cares Act, she held it up for more than a week when thousands of people were being unemployed because she wanted more money for the arts and the Kennedy Center…now when we are sitting here coming forward with people unemployed again, she held it up.”

There may be legal challenges over control of federal spending.

Still, Trump cast his actions as necessary because lawmakers have been unable to reach an agreement to put more money into the economy.

A failing economy isn’t a good factor for the president in the upcoming November reelection.

Trump is seeking to set aside $44 billion in previously approved disaster aid to help states. It would be up to states to determine how much to spend and when.

McCarthy said, “What President Trump did, he really showed he was the one person in the room that put people before politics.”

He also went on to say that Trump said, “You know what? I’m going to continue to help the people on unemployment. If you’re going to continue to play these games, I’m going to take action and put America first instead of your own personal ambitions.”

McCarthy tweeted:

Trump’s executive orders extends previous unemployment benefits, which expired on Aug. 1, was fully funded by Washington, but Trump is asking states to now cover 25 percent.

He is seeking to set aside $44 billion in previously approved disaster aid to help states, but said it would be up to states to determine how much, if any of it, to fund, so the benefits could be smaller still.

Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., used their own talking points to criticize what Trump did. They wanted to spend more.

At the start Democrats wanted a $3.4 trillion package, but said they lowered the amount to $2 trillion. Republicans had proposed a $1 trillion plan.

My guess would be that Republicans didn’t want the “pork” that Democrats wanted.

Pelosi and Schumer put out a joint statement which stated, “Today’s meager announcements by the president show President Trump still does not comprehend the seriousness or the urgency of the health and economic crises facing working families. We’re disappointed that instead of putting in the work to solve Americans’ problems, the President instead chose to stay on his luxury golf course to announce unworkable, weak and narrow policy announcements to slash the unemployment benefits that millions desperately need and endanger seniors’ Social Security and Medicare.”

The presumptive Democratic presidential candidate, Joe Biden called the orders “a series of half-baked measures” and accused him of putting at risk Social Security, which is funded by the payroll tax.

There was also a Republican Senator, Ben Sasse of Nebraska, who is a member of the Senate’s Judiciary and Finance panels, who had negative comments for the president.

Sasse said, “The pen-and-phone theory of executive lawmaking is unconstitutional slop.”

He added that Trump “does not have the power to unilaterally rewrite the payroll tax law. Under the Constitution, that power belongs to the American people acting through their members of Congress.”

You can’t please all of the people all of the time but the Congress, especially Pelosi and Schumer, must have added money for their own benefit and/or the DNC in general.

In the end, it’s our tax dollars that are being spent and personally, I don’t want to fund the DNC nor do I wish to keep Pelosi with ice cream, chocolate and vodka.

 

Resolution to Ban Dem Party Over Slavery Ties?

by Daveda Gruber:

On Thursday Republican Representative Louis Gohmert of Texas led a group of fellow GOP House Representatives and introduced a resolution that would essentially ban the Democratic Party from the House or change their name over past slavery ties.

This came about in response to House Democrats in their efforts to remove statues and pictures of past members of the Confederacy from Congress’s Halls.

The resolution refers to the Democratic Party’s platform that supported slavery from 1840 to 1856. It also refers to other racist actions by members of the party through the early-to-mid 1900’s.

It also calls on Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi from California to “remove any items that names, symbolizes or mentions any political organization or party that has ever held a public position that supported slavery or the Confederacy” from the House and its properties.

The bill mentions that such a party “shall either change its name or be barred from participation in the House of Representatives.”

Gohmert put out a statement that accompanies the resolution that says, “As outlined in the resolution, a great portion of the history of the Democratic Party is filled with racism and hatred. Since people are demanding we rid ourselves of the entities, symbols, and reminders of the repugnant aspects of our past, then the time has come for Democrats to acknowledge their party’s loathsome and bigoted past, and consider changing their party name to something that isn’t so blatantly and offensively tied to slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination, and the Ku Klux Klan.”

He also wrote, “To avoid triggering innocent bystanders by the racist past of the Democratic Party, I would suggest they change their name. That is the standard to which they are holding everyone else, so the name change needs to occur.”

Gohmert tweeted this:

Co-sponsors are Representatives Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., Jody Hice, R-Ga., Randy Weber, R-Texas, and Andy Harris, R-Md.

Although the bill is unlikely to pass, but it seems to draw attention to allegedly “blatant hypocrisy” around the House’s recent approval of a measure to remove Confederate busts in the Capitol this week.

After Gohmert spoke on the House floor, Weber spoke about the bill that passed yesterday.

Weber said, “The cancel culture train, H.R. 7573, that passed yesterday, was wrong on a deep level. I’m not going to get on that cancel culture train that says we have to do away with any mention or remembrance of everybody or everything that we don’t agree with, or that might have said something we don’t like, didn’t like, or that might have stood for something that we don’t stand for.”

The resolution is privileged, which means that it takes priority over all other business on the House floor.

If the resolution isn’t dispensed with via voice vote, then lawmakers may be forced to go on the record on the resolution. That could happen through a motion to table it or they could refer it to a committee.

Seventy-two Republicans and Representative Justin Amash, L-Mich., voted in favor of removing statues of Confederates in a 301 to 113 vote.

Here is the resolution:

Democratic Representative Karen Bass of California said, “Just imagine what it feels like as an African American to know that my ancestors built the Capitol, but yet there are monuments to the very people that enslaved my ancestors. These individuals do not deserve to be honored.”

Many consider a significant starting point to slavery in America to be 1619, when the privateer The White Lion brought 20 African slaves ashore in the British colony of  Jamestown, Virginia. The crew had seized the Africans from the Portugese slave ship Sao Jao Bautista.

The 13th Amendment, adopted on December 18, 1865, officially abolished slavery, but freed Black peoples’ status in the post-war South remained precarious, and significant challenges awaited during the Reconstruction period.

Up until then the presidents were of different parties but the Democratic party had more.

Here is a list of presidents before 1865:

George Washington: April 30, 1789 to March 4, 1797   ̶  Unaffiliated

John Adams: March 4, 1797 to March 4, 1801  ̶  Federalist

Thomas Jefferson: March 4, 1801 to March 4, 1809   ̶  Democratic-Republican

James Madison: March 4, 1817 to March 4, 1817  ̶  Democratic-Republican

James Monroe: March 4, 1817 to March 4, 1825   ̶   Democratic-Republican

John Quincy Adams: March 4, 1825 to March 4, 1829  ̶   Democratic-Republican

Andrew Jackson: March 4, 1829 to March 4, 1837  ̶   Democratic

Martin Van Buren: March 4, 1837 to March 4, 1841  ̶   Democratic

William Henry Harrison: March 4, 1841 to April 4, 1841  ̶  Whig

John Tyler: April 4, 1841 to March 4, 1845  ̶  Whig

James K. Polk: March 4, 1845 to March 4, 1849   ̶   Democratic

Zachary Taylor: March 4, 1849 to July 9, 1850   ̶   Whig

Millard Fillmore: July 9, 1850 to March 4, 1853   ̶   Whig

Franklin Pierce: March 4, 1853 to March 4, 1857   ̶   Democratic

James Buchanan: March 4, 1861 to March 4, 1861   ̶   Democratic

Abraham Lincoln: March 4, 1861 to April 15, 1865  ̶   Republican

Andrew Johnson: April 15, 1865 to March 4, 1869  ̶   National Union

History shows us what happened in the past. Without knowledge of the past, we tend to repeat it.

With that said, Democrats have been not doing well in Democratic run cities and states. Erasing history will not change that.

Still, Democratic lawmakers having been undermining Republicans and instigating probes, hearings, fact finding committees and an impeachment inquiry, all under the guise of  President Trump being unfit in their eyes.

It’s about time that the GOP started slinging some crap back at the Democrats.

Thank you Louis Gohmert and company!

Who’s Not Happy Roger Stone Prison Sentence Commuted?

by Daveda Gruber:

Late Friday the White House announced that President Trump had signed an Executive Grant of Clemency for Roger Stone.

Stone was sentenced to more than three years in prison. Last year he was convicted on seven counts of obstruction, witness tampering and making false statements to Congress. All of the convictions were in relation to FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

Stone has appealed the conviction and denies wrongdoing. He was supposed to report to prison on July 14th.

He would have had to serve forty months. The President stepped in and the White House reported that the President had commuted the sentence “in light of the egregious facts and circumstances surrounding his unfair prosecution, arrest, and trial.”

Trump tweeted:

Not everyone was happy about Trump’s decision. Of course Democrats were against what Trump did but one Republican joined them in their rhetoric.

On Saturday Senator Mitt Romney, R-Utah, tweeted this:

It is no surprise that Romney would disagree with anything that Trump does and has had feuded with the president in the past. He was the only Senate Republican to vote for an article of impeachment in Trump’s Senate impeachment trial.  Trump was accused of “obstruction of Congress” but was acquitted by the Senate.

Democrats accused the president of corruption. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi promised that Congress would act on the matter.

A statement by Pelosi on Saturday said, “President Trump’s decision to commute the sentence of top campaign advisor Roger Stone, who could directly implicate him in criminal misconduct, is an act of staggering corruption.”

The statement went on to say, “Congress will take action to prevent this type of brazen wrongdoing. Legislation is needed to ensure that no President can pardon or commute the sentence of an individual who is engaged in a cover-up campaign to shield that President from criminal prosecution.”

Pelosi tweeted this:

Democrats will always dispute what Trump or his administration do. They will do anything they can, with the help of the mainstream media, to try to stop Trump from being elected in November.

The presumptive presidential nominee and former Vice President, Joe Biden, got on the put down Trump bandwagon and tweeted this:

Stone  is 67 years old so he could be considered high risk for COVID-19.

A multitude of hardened criminals, who committed heinous crimes, have been released from prisons all over the country because of the coronavirus.

Stone is not a threat to society so why can’t Democrats just let it go?

There is a hate that the Democrats and Romney, who is a Republican in name only, hold that is very deep. Could they be afraid of Trump getting re-elected for a multitude of reasons?

Not only are the political differences at stake, there are a number of Politians in high places that may have accumulated large amounts of money that they have not been able to rationalize.

How many criminals are involved in government? Why are they not going off to jail cells?

We live in a two tier system. Democrats who do wrong don’t seem to go to prison let alone get indicted.

Pelosi Swears in New GOP Congressmen

by Daveda Gruber:

On Tuesday Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., swore in two GOP congressmen into office.

The two seats went from blue to red in special elections that were held on May 12th.

Mike Garcia, R-Calif., and Tom Tiffany, R-Wis., both won their elections and the Speaker swore them into office today while Republican leaders flaunted the wins as a shift in momentum moving forward to the November election.

Pelosi saw things in a different manner. She actually expressed confidence that Democrats will retake the California seat in November. She believes that the loss in the special election happened due to the unusual circumstance that the pandemic brought.

Last week Pelosi said, “We intend to win that seat in November. We don’t see it as any referendum on anything other than it’s the first time we had vote-by-mail in the district … overwhelmingly.”

After being sworn in, Garcia and Tiffany joined House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., for a press conference.

McCarthy was quick to say that these two wins will have a ripple effect for Republicans retaking the House.

McCarthy said, “This is an early indication of what November looks like.”

Republicans needed nineteen seats to win back control of the House last year but now need seventeen.

Representative Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey switched parties late last year and became a Republican. His decision was made because he didn’t want to go along party lines to impeach President Trump.

Van Drew was thanked by Trump and Trump held a big campaign rally in his district in January.

Garcia is a former Navy combat pilot. He flipped California’s 25th congressional district from blue to red after freshman Rep. Katie Hill, D-Calif., resigned from the seat in October 2019.

Garcia said, “I can think of no better place right now to serve my country than in the House of Representatives.”

Tiffany is a former state senator. He won the seat in Wisconsin that was vacated by GOP Rep. Sean Duffy.

Tiffany said, “People want reform. They want our country to get back up on its feet again. And that means government needs to be responsive to the citizens of this country. That’s what I will fight for every day.”

It appears that having three seats flip from blue to red in elections and one simply by choice, doesn’t sound positive for Pelosi to be bragging about holding the House.

McCarthy seems to be on the right side for bragging rights as the number nineteen has dwindled to seventeen.

Let’s take back the House in November and while we’re at it, let’s increase our numbers in the Senate.

Vote RED down the line in November and Keep America Great!

 

Republicans Angry Over Pelosi Oversight Committee

by Daveda Gruber:

It appears that Republicans are, once again, not happy with Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi and her move to create a new House committee in response to the COVID-19 crisis.

As I explained yesterday, there is already oversight measures built into the stimulus bill that was passed last week.

Pelosi insisted that the committee was unbiased but Republicans are not buying what she’s selling.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has expressed his opinion on the bill in detail.

While on “Fox & Friends” Friday, McCarthy said, “This isn’t about oversight, it sounds like pure politics. Let’s take care of the crisis at hand right now. We have five different oversights already looking at this and this is what she comes up with?”

McCarthy also stated, “That’s why in the CARES act we implemented three new oversight entities within there that [Pelosi] has an appointment to, but we already have the Oversight Committee only to focus on this, and we also have…every single committee has an oversight subcommittee.”

He went on to say, “It seems to me that this is just politics as usual instead of focusing on the crisis we need to be today, focusing on the American public and getting the resources to them.”

McCarthy brought to light that the $2 trillion CARES Act that passed Congress last week already has oversight in it.

Measures consist of the Pandemic Response Accountability Committee, made up of inspectors general to locate and investigate waste and abuse of spending under the bill, and in response to the crisis. It also sets up a Special Inspector General for Pandemic Recovery to conduct oversight over stimulus spending by the Treasury.

On top of all that, is a Congressional Oversight Commission set to oversee spending by the Department of the Treasury and the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve that is required to send reports to Congress every 30 days.

On Thursday Pelosi announced that she is creating a House Select Committee on the Coronavirus Crisis. She also stated that the committee will appoint both Democrats and Republicans and that it would have subpoena power to seek information from the Trump administration.

She went on to say that Democrats would hope that there would be cooperation because this was not a kind of an investigation of the administration but that it was about the whole response.

On Thursday President Trump said, “I want to remind everyone here in our nation’s capital, especially in Congress, that this is not the time for politics, endless partisan investigations. Here we go again. They’ve already done extraordinary damage to our country in recent years.”

Trump also said, “It’s witch hunt after witch hunt after witch hunt. And in the end it’s people doing the witch hunt who are losing  ̶̶ ̶  and they’ve been losing by a lot. And it’s not any time for witch hunts.”

The President also sent a letter to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. I do love a well written letter!

You can see it here in this tweet by a friend of mine:

I guess Trump is getting upset with the wasteful spending and the actions of the Democrats. I know I’m upset with all the nonsense that is actually going on.

Do the job that you were paid to do Democrats!

Pelosi Creating New Oversight Committee

by Daveda Gruber:

On Thursday the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, announced that she is creating a new House committee to oversee the coronavirus response.

The committee will have subpoena power to seek out information from the Trump administration, Pelosi said on Thursday during a teleconference call with reporters.

The Democratic Speaker from California said, “”It would have subpoena power that’s for sure. It’s no use having a committee unless you have subpoena power. And we would hope that there would be cooperation because this is not a kind of an investigation of the administration it’s about the whole [response].”

James Clyburn, the Democratic Representative from South Carolina will chair the House Select Committee on the Coronavirus Crisis.

Pelosi said that the committee will be bipartisan and have both Democrats and GOP members appointed to it.

In 1941 a committee chaired by former Senator Harry Truman was set up to investigate waste, fraud and abuse in defense spending in the early days of World War II and Pelosi compared her new committee to that one.

In reference to large stimulus bill that was just recently passed Pelosi said, “With over $2 trillion in emergency relief, we need to ensure those dollars are spent carefully and effectively.”

She went on to say, “The committee will be empowered to examine all aspects of the federal response to the coronavirus, and to assure that the taxpayer dollars are being wisely and efficiently spent to save lives, deliver relief and benefit our economy.”

Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA., spoke to reporters on a separate call and appeared to have concerns about

McCarthy hasn’t said who would lead his side or who would participate but he did say that he was concerned about the choice of Clyburn because Clyburn had called the COVID-19 crisis an opportunity  to restructure things to fit the Democratic vision.

McCarthy said, “The other concern that I have from this standpoint is inside the bill that we passed, we did put in oversight and it seems really redundant.”

If McCarty says that oversight is already taken care of, then this new committee could be a wasteful expenditure.

Unfortunately, the Democrats certainly know how to add expenses to everything that they do. They certainly added expenses (pork) to the stimulus bill and I did explain those expenses in detail in my article on 03.30.2020.

This new Pelosi invented committee is not the same as the one proposed by Representative Adam Schiff, D-CA., and others, which would be more like the 9/11-style after-action committee.
In any case, any committees that are created will ultimately cost us, the taxpayers, more money.

Do Lawmakers Want Another COVID-19 Bill?

by Daveda Gruber:

Lawmakers on Capitol Hill are already considering another stimulus package for the COVID-19 outbreak.

The largest piece of legislation in U.S. history for $2.2 trillion was passed last week. That legislation Which is set in place to provide economic relief has $350 billion in funding for small businesses.

Businesses with fewer than 500 employees are eligible for up to $10 million in loans. The loans can be used for payroll,  insurance premiums, mortgages, rent or utilities.

On Monday Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said he would be willing to ask Congress for more money to help during the coronavirus outbreak.

Congressional Republicans and Democrats had indicated that there could be a fourth coronavirus response bill.

Mnuchin told Fox Business, “This is a very popular program with Republicans and Democrats, and the president likes it a lot. If we run out of money, and this is a huge success, we will absolutely go back to Congress and ask for more money.”

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., told The Hill, “I think the odds are we’ll need more legislation. First, we don’t know the extent of the crisis in terms of the magnitude, so that could rise. But there are going to be problems that we don’t realize now that we’re going to have to grapple with. So I think the odds are high there will be a COVID-4.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., told CNN that Democrats “had bigger direct payments in our bill, and we think we’ll get more direct payments in another bill.”

Pelosi added that she planned to push for pension protections which did not make it into phase three of the stimulus package. Last week Pelosi said that pension protections were supported by President Trump, but that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said he would save it for another piece of legislation.

In a fourth stimulus package, Democrats are allegedly seeking additional funding for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), which is also known as food stamps. Also being reported, is including emissions restrictions on airlines. That inclusion was blocked last week.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., has stressed that phase three of coronavirus legislation that was approved last week, was critical, but he wasn’t certain that another bill would be necessary.

McCartthy was on Fox News and said, “I’m not sure we need a fourth package. And before we go to start drafting a fourth package, I’d like these three packages just put out…to take care and get this economy moving.”

Last week New York Govenor Andrew Cuomo said, “The congressional action in my opinion simply failed to address the governmental need. I’m disappointed, I said I was disappointed. I find it irresponsible, I find it reckless.”

He also said that the money New York does receive from the stimulus package was “earmarked only for COVID virus expenses, which means it does absolutely nothing for us in terms of lost revenue.”

The 880-page coronavirus stimulus package helps many people but the amount of money that have nothing to do with the COVID-19 outbreak is very high.

Here is a list of the money and where it goes:

The entire bill can be seen here:

https://www.scribd.com/document/453273118/Cares-Act-Final-Text

If there is more money given in a fourth bill, more pork will be added. We are in big debt now. I agree that the third bill was needed but there’s also a lot of pork in it. To get money from Democratic lawmakers is tricky. They always want something that has nothing to do with the issues at hand.

VP Pence: US Ready for Anything

by Daveda Gruber:

On Thursday Vice President Mike Pence assured the nation that the federal government is prepared for any potential health crisis while speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) outside Washington.

CPAC is an annual political conference attended by conservative activists and elected officials from across the United States. CPAC is hosted by the American Conservative Union (ACU).

President Trump has put Pence at the helm of the team to lead the U.S. response to the coronavirus outbreak.

Pence said, “We’re ready. We’re ready for anything,” which was what Trump had said yesterday.

Pence called for political unity when he said, “We’re all in this together. This is not the time for partisanship. The American people expect us to work together.”

Pence added went on to say, “I promise you this administration will work with leaders in both parties, on the state and local level. This president will always put the health and safety of America first.”

Here is a video of Pence speaking at CPAC:

Still, it remains doubtful that the top Democrats are likely to fight alongside Republicans.

On Monday, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said that Trump’s proposed $2.5 billion request to undertake the outbreak was “long overdue and completely inadequate to the scale of this emergency.”

On Wednesday Trump did not hold back words as he called Pelosi “incompetent” and accused her of using the virus for political means.

Trump said, “She’s trying to create a panic and there is no reason to panic, All they are trying to is get a political advantage, but this shouldn’t be a political thing.”

The virus has killed at least 2,800 people worldwide and infected around 82,000 mainly in China. The virus is difficult to detect as it resembles a common cold or flu. The coronavirus does affect the chest and lungs.

U.S. authorities recently confirmed the first American coronavirus case that had no link to international travel in California but it happened in an area near Travis Air Force Base, which was used to transport an American back to the U.S. with the virus, which is near Solano County, where the case was detected.

Dr. Sonia Angell, Director of the California Department of Public Health and State Public Health Officer said in a statement, “We have been anticipating the potential for such a case in the U.S., and given our close familial, social and business relationships with China, it is not unexpected that the first case in the U.S. would be in California.”

Testing is happening in other areas of the country where coronavirus is suspected.

Democrats would love to find something new to blame Trump for but no one seems to be buying the garbage that they spew. Trump was not the cause for the virus nor did he not react in the proper manner. Trust me, Trump’s got this under control.

Meet Pelosi’s House Impeachment Managers

by Daveda Gruber:

On Wednesday Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi presented the members of the House who will serve as House mangers and will be the prosecutors against President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial.

The trial is expected to begin early next week and Pelosi D-Calif., had a few things to say.

Pelosi said,  “I am proud to present the managers who will bring the case which we have great confidence in impeaching the president for his removal. The emphasis is on litigators.”

House managers will be:

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y.

House Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y.

Rep. Jason Crow, D-Colo.

Val Demings, D-Fla.

Sylvia Garcia, D-Texas

Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif.

Schiff will be the lead manager. He led much of the impeachment committee.

Nadler’s  panel drafted the articles of impeachment.

Lofgren is no stranger to presidential impeachment proceedings, as a Judiciary Committee staffer, during former President Richard Nixon’s and former President Bill Clinton’s impeachment.

Pelosi tweeted this:

Pelosi insisted that the charges against the president will be a stain on his legacy, and reiterating that an “impeachment that will last forever.”

Pelosi said, “This is a very serious matter and we take it to heart in a really solemn way. It’s about the Constitution, it’s about the republic if we can keep it and [senators] shouldn’t be frivolous with the Constitution of the United States even though the president of the United States has.”

She then added, “The president is not above the law. He will be held accountable. He already has been held accountable. He has been impeached and you can never erase that.”

Here is a video of the televised announcement:

Trump must have been watching because he came back with a tweet:

Okay, I have a problems with the managers especially Schiff who is the lead manager. If the Senate, after going over all the articles of impeachment, decide to call witnesses, Schiff would be one of the witnesses that I’d like to hear from after all, he met the whistleblower, who we all know who he is, yes, it’s still Eric Ciaramella.

There are photos of Ciaramella with the Schiff family. Here is one:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Schiff is adamantly against calling Ciaramella as a witness and I’d like the American people to find out why.
