    Trump ‘Strongly’ Considering Offering Testimony in Impeachment Inquiry

    Trump ‘Strongly’ Considering Offering Testimony in Impeachment Inquiry

    “Even though I did nothing wrong, and don’t like giving credibility to this No Due Process Hoax, I like the idea & will, in order to get Congress focused again, strongly consider it!”

    President Donald Trump unloaded on Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi this morning after she suggested he testify in the impeachment inquiry.

    He tweeted he will “strongly consider” the idea so the “witch hunt” can end and Congress can get back to doing its job.

    Pelosi said on Face the Nation Trump “could come right before the committee and talk, speak all the truth that he wants if he wants to… take the oath of office or he could do it in writing.” She noted Trump “has every opportunity to present his case.”

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer agreed with Pelosi:

    “If Donald Trump doesn’t agree with what he’s hearing, doesn’t like what he’s hearing, he shouldn’t tweet. He should come to the committee and testify under oath. And he should allow all those around him to come to the committee and testify under oath,” Schumer told reporters.

    The House Intelligence Committee began public hearings last week. They will head from eight officials this week, including US Ambassador to the EU Gordon Sondland.

    After 3 years of non-stop torment from the Dems, MSM and Resistance, I wish he’d just tell them to “Go to Hell.”

    It really bugs me that the R’s always seem to play to the D’s games and rules. Why? It reminds me of a Superbowl; I think it was SB XXI (NYG vs DB) which was a snooze fest and a 1 point game at the half. In either a half-time interview on the way to the locker room, or a post-game interview I believe it was coach Parcells who said “they’re lulling us to sleep out there”. The 2nd half was a different story with the NYG roaring out of the gate and putting up 30 pts to win the game. The difference being NYG played their game instead of playing to Denver’s game.

    I keep waiting and wondering if and when the R’s will go on offense – when DJT will loose the hounds on those lyin’ b’tards.

      I doubt the R’s will wake up.

      We really have four distinct parties vying for 2020—the Socialists, the Dems, the Repubs, and DJT.

      The Socialists are trying to drag the Dems in one direction, and DJT is trying to drag the Repubs in another. But Dems and Repubs are both immovable objects, and quite happy where they are already.

    First of all, he will insist that will televised only as a pay per view, with all proceeds going to some hip charity. Then he will insist on only answering questions from unicorns. Then he will fart rainbows on stage.

    I think the House’s problem is that they’re conducting a “fishing expedition” masquerading as an “Impeachment Inquiry”. An Impeachment “Process” would start off with a detailed set of charges against the President, to wit what specific “high crimes and or misdemeanors” is Trump accused of. Then (and only then) could they reasonably demand related information.

    What the House is doing is Stalinesque. Schiff, masquerading as a reincarnation of Leveranty Beria is following his playbook: “Show me the man and I’ll find you the crime”. And they’re making up what they claim are criminal charges as they go along. And they want as much information as they can lay their hands on so they can try to find “something” they can characterize as a high crime.

    This is not how we do Justice in these United States. I don’t think the Supremes will sanction these efforts.

    Trump would be foolish to dance to any time played by then Democrats or to support their delusion that they have him on trial. They are the prosecutors not the court. They are going to drag him to the Senate no matter what he does.

    First, this is pure Trump. He’s going to tease with one hand while slapping them around with the other. “Of course there are a few minor details that would have to be completed before I even considered it, like ensuring the Republicans get to subpoena witnesses like they’ve been forbidden so far, and keeping Little Adam Schiff from interrupting every five minutes like he has been…”

    Second, this Tease-Slap-Tease-Slap will continue just as long as he is making hay off it, because to the Dems, this will be a bugzapper they just can’t keep from flying into. Pelosi will have to either admit defeat and eat crow, or actually play his game and start ensuring the constitutional protections we extend to the lowest criminal also get extended to the highest office in the land.

    If the impeachment breaks down and crashes, good. If Trump finishes his teasing with “There’s no way anybody could trust a panel run by people who don’t even (fill in blank) and doesn’t testify, good. If Trump submits a lawyer-reviewed statement instead of testifying, good.

    Worst case, he goes to the impeachment hearing, reads his statement, and leaves with a mic-drop, while the Dems go into full screeching and frothing mode. Actually, that would be worth it, twice over.
