Rush Limbaugh whines that impeachment talk is about ‘trying to dispirit’ Trump supporters

Published

on

Talk radio personality Rush Limbaugh complained that talk of impeaching President Donald Trump was not based on enforcing the rule of law, but on Democrats bent on dispiriting his audience.

“I mean, this is designed to do exactly what I have been warning everybody was coming. They’re trying to dispirit you,” Limbaugh argued.

“They’re trying to make it harder for you to verbalize your support for Trump. They’re trying to make you doubt him,” he continued. “It’s about making you think this is a lost cause.”

Limbaugh played a montage of television news discussing impeachment, following the court filings that listed Trump as an unindicted co-conspirator.

“They’re talking about the Michael Cohen plea deal in which it is stated that a prominent candidate directed him to make payments to two women for their silence in violation of campaign finance law. It is not a violation of campaign finance law,” Limbaugh claimed, despite the fact that Cohen is awaiting sentencing for the same violation.

Limbaugh said the goal was to lower Trump’s approval ratings.

“Look, they can impeach over anything if they want to try. And that’s why they’ve gotta get the numbers down,” he argued. “If they get Trump’s numbers down to 30 percent they’re gonna impeach him for the way he blows his nose! And they’ll come up with a way to call it a high crime or misdemeanor.”

Limbaugh said that “unindicted co-conspirator” is “strictly a term designed to drive down public opinion.”

Lewandowski’s testimony will let Democrats build Nixon-like articles of impeachment: Ex-prosecutor

Published

on

As President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski combatively testified before the House Judiciary Committee, he admitted that Trump asked him to communicate to then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions that former special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation must be shut down. Aside from that revelation, most of the testimony was unproductive, with Lewandowski lashing out at members of Congress and running interference for the president.

But as former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti wrote on Twitter, these outbursts — and the fact that Trump sanctioned the way that Lewandowski behaved in the hearing — could be the basis for Democrats to write up articles of impeachment against Trump similar to those drafted against Richard Nixon in 1974:

Putin aims a weaponized barb at Trump over Saudi attack – and hits the mark

Published

on

Russian President Vladimir Putin joked this week about selling defense systems to Riyadh following weekend attacks on Saudi oil facilities. The gag was aimed at US President Donald Trump and it hit the mark with the precision of a guided weapon.

It was a masterful piece of trolling by the czar of trolls – a snide, disparaging jibe with an element of truth twisted into absurdity for maximum effect and laughs. At a joint press conference with his Turkish and Iranian counterparts in Ankara on Monday, Putin cast his bait into the volatile Persian Gulf region just days after devastating attacks on Saudi oil facilities exposed the limits of the Gulf kingdom’s expensive defense systems.

Published

on

Anti-Trump Republican strategist Rick Wilson dropped the hammer on House Democrats Tuesday for letting Trump minion Corey Lewandowski make a mockery of their oversight powers.

After witnessing a House Judiciary Committee hearing that quickly devolved into a circus with Lewandowski stonewalling and evading questions, Wilson unloaded on Democrats for failing in their basic responsibilities in governmental oversight.

"This is outrageous contempt," Wilson wrote. "It isn't just that this scumbag Lewandowski is slapping the committee with it. This is a test, and the Democrats are going to fail it. They're so bad at this it makes me cringe."
