Are We Seeing A Chink In The Armor?

A Very Wicked Witch

Washington Post congressional reporter Rachael Bade said, “She was clearly putting a positive spin on what a lot of Democrats have privately said was a failed strategy.”

Now Bade is talking about Nancy Pants holding back the articles of impeachment, and it’s significant were starting to see this level talk about moderates questioning Nancy Pants, but when these people wake up and smell the coffee, they’ll come to realize The Impeachment™ is a failed strategy.

The entire rush to have impeachment hearings and a vote in the time and manner in which Nancy Pants and Adam Schitt orchestrated it (Quite possibly with willing help from the left wing news media I might add.), was meant to preempt the release of Michael Horowitz report and his testimony on the Crossfire Hurricane investigation.

Nancy Pants not sending the article to the Senate, under the same rules by which Bill Clinton was impeached, is a tacit admission by Nancy Pants that the democrats have nothing, and the impeachment would quickly die in the Senate.

Watch the video at the link, and you’ll probably get a real laugh too, when George Stephanopoulos, the left wing Shill that he is, had to rush in there to prop up Nancy Pants.

The fact is, democrats never hid which way they were going to vote when Clinton had his Senate trial, so spare me your crocodile tears about Cocaine Mitch. Ok, Georgie?

You fucking hack.

Over the coming months, as it becomes clearer and clearer what they democrats were up to over the past 5 years, the harder protecting democrats will become for the left wing media… but I suppose Glenn Greenwald will be satisfied.

ABC News: Federal judge dismisses DNC suit against Russia, Trump campaign, Wikileaks

When special counsel Robert Mueller’s 448-page report on Russian interference was released in April 2019 and said that the 22-month investigation did not establish a criminal conspiracy between the campaign and the Russians, attorneys for the defendants renewed their arguments for dismissing the DNC suit. At the time, a source familiar with the DNC’s legal strategy told ABC News they were unbowed by Mueller’s finding and said that the bar for criminality was higher than for civil liability.

On Tuesday, Judge Koeltl ruled against the DNC, emphasizing that they did not allege that anyone other than the Russian government participated in the hacking of their systems, and failed to “raise a factual allegation that suggests that any of the defendants were even aware that the Russian Federation was planning to hack the DNC’s computers until after it had already done so.”

“The DNC argues that the various meetings and conversations between the defendants in this case and with persons connected to the Russian government during the time that Russian GRU agents were stealing the DNC’s information show that the defendants conspired with the Russian Federation to steal and disseminate the DNC’s materials,” Koeltl wrote. “That argument is entirely divorced from the facts actually alleged in the Second Amended complaint.”

Columbia Journalism Review: Report reveals new details about DOJ’s seizing of AP phone records

And you can be assured democrats won’t care one bit. Attacks on a free press are only bad when it hurts democrats.

Now I’m not saying republicans are any better, but they were never supposed to be the defenders of free speech. That was supposed to be democrats.

In 2013, the Justice Department launched a brazen attack on press freedom, issuing sweeping subpoenas for the phone records of the Associated Press and several of its reporters and editors as part of a leak investigation. At the time, the subpoenas were widely seen as a massive intrusion into newsgathering operations. Last month, we learned that they told only part of the story.

A new report obtained by the Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University and the Freedom of the Press Foundation (where the authors work) under the Freedom of Information Act shows that the DOJ’s actions against the AP were broader than previously known, and that the DOJ considered subpoenaing the phone records of other news organizations, including The Washington Post, The New York Times, and ABC News. Moreover, they reveal how narrowly the DOJ interprets the Media Guidelines, the agency’s internal rules for obtaining reporters’ data.
