1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (197 sites): Palmer Report: The march to impeachment is working

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

For the past few weeks, many among the Resistance have been asking why House Democrats “aren’t doing anything” about Donald Trump. Their frustration has been understandable. But anyone paying attention to what’s really been going on has seen that we’re now several weeks into the impeachment process; the Democrats just aren’t calling it “impeachment” yet. New evidence reveals that this strategy is working.


It’s fairly easy to understand why House Democrats are moving forward with impeachment while not yet fully calling it what it is. The minute they call it impeachment, Trump will begin making the argument that it’s being done for mere partisan reasons. But if the Democrats keep their distance from that word until their best witnesses testify in public, it’ll make Trump’s crimes clear as day to the American public, and it’ll result in more widespread demand for impeachment. Then the Democrats can (correctly) say that they’re only impeaching him because the evidence has taken them there.



Earlier this week we saw the first concrete evidence that the House Democrats’ strategy is working. Just before William Barr gave his embarrassing Senate testimony and refused to show up for his House testimony, a CNN poll showed that 37% of Americans favored impeachment. After the Barr hearings painted Donald Trump as being guilty, an NBC News poll showed that 49% of Americans favored impeachment. As Palmer Report explained at the time, it’s always a bit tricky to try to measure movement by comparing two different polling outlets, because the two polls can be worded differently or have different methodologies. But now we’ve got more surefire numbers.



Yesterday Reuters released a poll which showed that 45% of Americans now favor impeachment, up from 40% before William Barr’s meltdown. This means the House Democrats managed to convince an additional five percent of Americans that Donald Trump needs to be impeached, just by going after Barr in front of the television cameras. And this was with Barr trying to help Trump the whole time. When people like Robert Mueller and Don McGahn publicly testify soon, that number should go significantly higher.


House Democrats are likely no more than two weeks away from having a solid majority of Americans calling for Donald Trump’s impeachment. There’s a prevailing narrative that impeachment would help Trump’s 2020 reelection chances, though no one can explain why this would be the case. But once a majority of Americans want Trump impeached, it’ll be hard for anyone to make the argument that impeachment would somehow make Trump more popular. The march to impeachment is working – it’s not just being called “impeachment” quite yet.

If anyone needs to be investigated, it’s Rudy Giuliani. Rudy was “a lobbyist for Kharkiv and Ukraine” but failed to register under FARA. His clients, Pavel Fuks and Gennadiy Kernes, have reported ties to organized crime. How is he different than Manafort? nytimes.com/2019/05/09/us/…

‘Yes’ It’s Possible Russia Is Controlling Trump – The Bipartisan Press

Our Verdict:
Comey remains convinced he did the right thing.



Donald Trump could well be under control of the Russian government, according to the man Trump fired as FBI director months after taking office as president.

While it was up to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation to determine the criminal aspects of potential collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign, the counterintelligence investigation into “whether the Russians had leverage over the president,” said Jim Comey, who served as FBI director from 2013 until 2017.

Asked whether the Russians have that leverage over Trump, Comey replied he didn’t know but “yes” it was possible.

Speaking on CNN, Comey also addressed reports and allegations that in 2016 he ordered “spying” on the Trump campaign.

Comey said that he couldn’t explain why Attorney General William “Bill” Barr calls it “spying.”

“I can’t explain it. The only explanation I can think of is he used it because the president uses it, which is really disappointing,” Comey said. “He knows better than that, and knows that the FBI conducts electronic surveillance by going to federal judges and getting warrants based on probable cause.”

The FBI operation to insert an undercover investigator as a staffer into the Trump campaign was “reasonable” to investigate a specific Trump aide, George Papadopoulos, Comey said.

“That was the guy, Papadopoulos, who was the subject of the information we got from the Australians that he had talked to the Russians,” he said.

That situation is now under investigation by the Justice Department inspector general, but Comey is certain he acted appropriately and within regulations.

“Yes. No doubt in my mind. But that doesn’t mean I’m against review of it. That’s totally fine,” Comey said.

Asked by CNN host Anderson Cooper if the inspector general might find anything inappropriate, Comey replied, “I don’t think so. At least not that I know of. But if they do, they do. And they should be transparent about it.”

Comey did admit to regrets about his handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email system as secretary of state, as many observers cite Comey’s last-minute announcement in that affair as sealing Clinton’s fate in the 2016 presidential election.

“If I can go back in time, I would find a way not to be involved at all. But if I don’t have that magic wand, I think I’d likely do it the same way. Here was my problem: I and the FBI needed the American people to trust that this wasn’t a political fix job, that this was done in a credible, fair, independent way. Secretary Clinton had engaged in conduct that was way beyond what the normal carelessness was. So how do we explain to the American people that it’s not the ordinary stuff, but it doesn’t rise to the level that you would be locked up for it? So I have to characterize the behavior in some way, not to attack her, but so that the American people understand this is the basis for their judgment,” Comey said. “It’s not criminal, but it’s not the ordinary stuff. I probably should have said ‘really sloppy’ or something, but I had to characterize it. The goal was to offer transparency to foster trust. I actually think you’ve seen it now.

“We all realize the importance of it now with the Mueller Report. The Mueller Report contains far more detail about individuals who are not charged than we ever even considered offering in the Clinton case, but it’s important for all of us to understand the basis of the decisions being made,” he added.
