(Tea Party PAC) – The impeachment inquiry just continues to reveal with each passing day how much of a farce the whole thing really is, particularly when new witnesses are brought in against the president that don’t actually have anything they can add to the madness to clarify the charges against Trump or prove that he’s done anything wrong.
In fact, the House Judiciary Committee, led by Rep. Jerrold Nadler, has announced that four legal scholars will be the first witnesses at their hearings against the president.
The only problem is none of these folks have any firsthand accounts of the president’s dealings with Ukraine.
Here’s Breitbart with more details:
House Judiciary Committee chair Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) has announced the four legal scholars who will be the first witnesses at his committee’s hearings on the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.
The witnesses include three chosen by the committee’s Democrats, and one chosen by the committee’s Republicans.
The Democrats’ witnesses include Harvard Law School professor Noah Feldman, Stanford Law School professor Pamela Karlan, and University of North Carolina Law School professor Michael Gerhardt.
The sole Republican witness is George Washington University Law School professor Jonathan Turley, a liberal who nonetheless has become a frequent critic of Democrats’ approach to the Constitution in recent years.
Last month, Turley said that Democrats were “proceeding on the narrowest basis for impeachment in the history of this country.”
Feldman is respected for the nuances of his constitutional insights, and worked on the drafting of a new Iraqi constitution in the wake of the toppling of Saddam Hussain a decade-and-a-half ago. Yet he was taken in by the “Russia collusion” conspiracy theory, claiming in September 2017 that “more and more evidence of collusion between Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and Russia has come to light.” (None was eventually found.)
Feldman also argued that Trump could be impeached because of “conflicts of interest” and “foreign emoluments” — and even said Trump could be impeached for “defamation” after he accused former President Barack Obama of having his “wires tapped” at Trump Tower. As contemporaneous mainstream media coverage reported, the Obama administration had conducted surveillance of some Trump campaign operatives, including Carter Page.
Karlan said in 2017, after President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, that Trump had been “behaving extraordinarily badly,” and suggested that Republicans, then in the majority in both the House and the Senate, would spur the country towards a “constitutional crisis” if they failed to hold him in check. However, she acknowledged at the time that the president had the authority to fire Comey, except to obstruct a legitimate criminal investigation.
Gerhardt testified during the impeachment of President Bill Clinton in 1998. In retrospect, he wrote, “members of Congress are unlikely to pursue similar charges against a president ever again. Future members of Congress almost certainly will grant presidents a much wider zone of immunity for any personal misconduct than did the Republican Congress in 1998-99.” He also argued that “Congress should agree, at the very least, to have bipartisan support before authorizing congressional subpoenas or investigations,” adding: “At the very least, members of Congress should require committee chairs and ranking minority members of committees to agree before initiating investigations or issuing legislative subpoenas.”
In the Trump case, Democrats are pursuing a partisan inquiry without Republican consent and with one-sided rules that give the majority unprecedented power.
Earlier on Monday, Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA), the ranking Republican member on the House Judiciary Committee, protested in a letter to Nadler that the witnesses had not been revealed with less than 48 hours before the hearing was due to start Wednesday morning. Nadler revealed the witness list shortly thereafter on the committee website.

We all know this whole thing is a joke. The impeachment proceedings against President Trump are the work of angry leftists who want to put the conservatives living in the flyover states back in their places and let them know they are irrelevant. At least that’s what they want those folks to think, but of course, that isn’t true at all.
The American people voted for President Trump, and thus far, he’s done a pretty bang up job getting things back on track toward legitimate recovery. The most valuable contribution Trump has made, however, is his fighting back against the mainstream media and leftist culture that pervades our society.
For a long time, those of us on the right have felt as if we have no voice, no platform to fight back against these individuals who mock us and our belief system every chance they get. Trump has given us the voice we need and it’s been glorious to see folks standing up boldly against the bullying of the left.
Trump has empowered his base and its causing a shift in culture by not only creating a vehicle for the truth to be spoken, but by exposing the true nature of the left.
