Schumer claims new ‘evidence’ demands an impeachment retrial in the Senate

19

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Monday called for “sensitive administration documents” to be presented as evidence at the impeachment trial. Schumer wants what Nancy Pelosi wants — a full retrial or re-impeachment with witnesses who won’t appear until the courts decide. Yet, House Democrats insisted they had clearcut proof against the President, enough to impeach.

Schumer told reporters Thursday that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) should agree to procedures that allow for witnesses and documents at the outset of the trial. Those are the procedures demanded by Pelosi.

THE NEW EVIDENCE WAS ‘CONCEALED’

The Hill reported that Schumer says the White House tried to conceal the documents.

It’s not a matter of concealment. That’s dishonest. At the present time, the President went to the courts to mediate between the legislative branch and the executive to determine what records he has to turn over and which witnesses must appear as the legislators go through their unlawful impeachment.

The documents contain emails sent by senior White House official Michael Duffey. Duffey, a Trump appointee, works through the OMB and is responsible for overseeing national security money.

“Based on guidance I have received and in light of the Administration’s plan to review assistance to Ukraine, including the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative, please hold off on any additional DoD obligations of these funds, pending direction from that process,” Duffey wrote to OMB and Pentagon officials on July 25.

“Given the sensitive nature of the request, I appreciate your keeping that information closely held to those who need to know to execute direction,” Duffey added.

91 MINUTES

July 25th is the day the President spoke with President Zelensky. The media claims that the hold was put on 91 minutes after the call, not 90, not 92, 91. This is suspect given the media’s penchant for lying.

It’s more of the same. These documents are not factual evidence. I picture the President getting off the phone with the Ukraine President and thinking, I don’t know about this guy and if he’s going to clean up any corruption. Or maybe it’s just something else. It doesn’t matter. It’s not proof of anything we don’t already know.

Schumer argued in a letter circulated to senators that emails recently made public show that Michael Duffey ordered Pentagon officials in July to “hold off” on sending military aid to Ukraine and to keep the action secret because of its “sensitive nature.”

“Relevant documentary evidence currently in the possession of the Administration will augment the existing evidentiary record and will allow Senators to reach judgments informed by all of the available facts,” Schumer wrote.

It was kept ‘secret’ on July 25th because the President didn’t use it as quid pro quo. If it was quid pro quo, he would have told Ukraine.

TWEETED “EVIDENCE”

Schumer tweeted the documents.

Again, it appears to be more of the same. In fact, the President did nothing illegal, perhaps unwise, but not lawless. He can ask Ukraine to investigate and he can hold back aid. It’s done all the time. In the end, he didn’t do it. They impeached him for a thoughtcrime. How very 1984 of them.

MCCONNELL OFFERED TO USE THE SAME PROCESS AS WAS USED IN CLINTON’S IMPEACHMENT TRIAL

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is battling it out with them and it will be delayed until January.

McConnell was on Fox & Friends this morning and dealt with what he called the “charade” and whether he’s impartial or not. The Republican from Kentucky asked if anyone thinks Schumer is impartial. He said Pelosi’s trying to tell them how to run the Senate trial and that’s not happening.

He offered to do it exactly the way the Clinton trial was done, and which Schumer voted for in 1999.

  1. It was well known the President was examining ALL foreign aid to determine if it was efficacious. The emails just show how that was being accomplished. Nothing to see here, Schumer.

    This person gives a pretty good rundown of the Articles.

    Considering what Article 1 references the best rebut would be the Three Hour special by OANN. Just play these three hours at the beginning. This should be enough to “justify” the President’s actions.

      • I don’t know How long I was able. For awhile I couldn’t see Any replies, and today I noticed I could see those, plus the reply box showed up. I did reinstall the browser after an issue came up, but I wasn’t able to reply with the Brave browser sometime back also.
        We are in interesting times and there’s plenty to comment on.

    • Yes, Greg good to see you are back with your intelligent, cogent, accurate observations.. Always fitting the nail on its head.

  2. The first and only witness required is Giuliani to present verified,incontestable evidence that billions in US aid was squandered by Soros linked NGOs and the Bidens. The Ukraine was turned into a Commiecrat money-pot by Ovomit. The evidence clearly shows that billions in aid to the Ukraine was siphoned off down several rat holes controlled by the Commiecrats. The President has every right, an obligation, to ensure the funds are spent for the purposes intended and not wasted or siphoned off by the Bidens or Soros.

  3. I think the Democrats should give it a rest. Nothing that they dragged out was the truth. I honestly believe also, that this hatred for Trump has twisted the minds of the Coup Crew. And now they are really concerned about the impeachments results because they know with all their hearts and minds (whats left) that they will lose their seats in the 2020 election.

    • By the way, Schumer is useless to the advancement of objectives that will benefit this country and its citizens. Lookiing forward to this guys demise for the sake of the country. Mr. double talk is his moniker.

  4. They had 3 1/2 years to call witnesses present their evidence but the millions of tax payer dollars was spent on spinning the orange man is evil that he is the end to life as we know it,meanwhile the dems are giving illegals driver license,threatening to call out national guard for gun confiscation,major cities where they run are crumbling,why don’t they work on the real issues

  5. Schumer can F off. He demanded and in on record with his vote that the Senate trial in Bill Clinton’s impeachment be voided by vote before it even took place. He’s a low-life, dirtbag who, along with Pelosi, can eat crap and die for all I care.

  6. President Trump is now only the 3rd president to be impeached. That in itself it a badge of honor when the current Democrat Party does it and a stain on every one of them for their attempt to remove a president for the sole offense of not being liked by them. And if Democrats get their way he will be the only one impeached at least twice and maybe 3 different times if the second one doesn’t work either. This will be the legacy of the Democrat Party. How will history judge that stupidity by butt hurt Democrats?

    • actually, this is the 4th time they have tried to impeach him, so it looks like it may be 5 times or more, if the demoncraps keep saying they will keep trying to impeach him

  7. These people that been in Congress for a combined of hundreds of years, want to measure every word that the president says, wants to see his tax returns, want the president to be an angel, and is still not enough. What about them sucking for all their life on the government teet and contributing to an out of control immigration and giving free everything to people that don’t work for it, bankrupting the country?

  8. Schmucker pulling a Schifforbrains. Claiming there is evidence, which only he and his cohorts can discern, that will prove the articles of impeachment to be true. And worthwhile to pursue in the continuation of the House failure to find anything in 3+ years. Whiile providing nothing of substance in all that time.
    The solution is to remove the dims/commies from the reins of power in the House and lessen their numbers in the Senate to where they are inconsequential.
    Treat them like the spoiled little brats that their behavior shows them to be. Send them to the kids table, for the foreseeable future. Mental institutions come to mind as good future home for most of them.
    Just sayin’.
