    “A far-right think tank that has long espoused Islamophobia is set to hold its annual banquet at President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida.

    The Center for Security Policy has been issued a permit for its Freedom Flame Award Dinner, which is scheduled for Saturday, The Washington Post reported. The center’s chief executive, former Trump administration official Fred Fleitz, confirmed the location to HuffPost on Friday.

    In recent years, the organization’s founder, Frank Gaffney Jr., has supported calls for a total ban on Muslims entering the U.S. and written a trove of articles alleging that Muslims are attempting to “infiltrate” government institutions.

    The Center for Security Policy’s website provides further evidence of its conspiratorial views with fear-mongering content alerting readers to a “civilization jihad” and decrying “Islamist influence in Hollywood.” One 2017 book written for a center reading series claims that “Sharia-supremacists” are working “with leftists to destroy the United States.” ”

    “Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano on Friday called the evidence of impeachable behavior by Donald Trump presented at the House hearings “overwhelming” — and enough to justify three or four articles of impeachment against the president.

    Despite that, Napolitano said he “can’t imagine [Trump] will be removed from office” by the Republican-controlled Senate after a trial.

    “The evidence of his impeachable behavior at this point, in my view, is overwhelming,” he said in an interview on the libertarian Reason TV. Napolitano also noted that Trump “hasn’t presented a defense, and I don’t know if he plans to.”

    Top of Napolitano’s list of articles of impeachment that he expects the Democrats to bring is bribery, referring to Trump’s withholding of nearly $400 million in U.S. military aid as he pressed Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky in a July phone call to launch an investigation into his political rival Joe Biden and Biden’s son.”

    I think expecting a trial is optimistic. I think Moscow Mitch will simply have the Senate vote to dismiss it and it’s over. No hearing. No pesky witnesses. Just gone.

    That is why I think the Democrats need to simplify and decide on ONE charge. Then every time Mitch dismisses the impeachment, use another charge. Will it look bad? Yep. For both sides. Yes, it will look like the Democrats are harassing Trump. But it will also be clear that McConnell is partisan and isn’t bothering to even try an obviously guilty president. If McConnell has the impeachment dismissed, Trump will lose in 2020. Even if they go through the motions of a trial, then vote to acquit, Trump will still lose. (In the mean time he needs to be blocked from appointing another Supreme Court Justice. He’s already had two too many.)

    “A group of conservative-leaning lawyers criticized Attorney General William Barr for the expansive view of presidential power he espoused in a recent speech and for his conclusion this spring that President Donald Trump had not obstructed justice in the Russia investigation.

    “In recent months, we have become concerned by the conduct of Attorney General William Barr,” the group, Checks & Balances, said in a statement that was shared Friday with The New York Times.

    Members of the group have sharply denounced what they described as abuses of power by Trump, who is facing a fast-moving impeachment inquiry. The speech by Barr last week, in which he argued that the president had never overstepped his authority, so alarmed them that they felt compelled to push back publicly.

    The Justice Department declined to comment.”

    Well, duh. What are they going to say?

    Speaking of which, Barr acts like he is Trump’s personal defense attorney.

    “The Oval Office’s occupant is President Donald Trump, but his battalion of private and taxpayer-funded lawyers are making arguments that may seem better suited for a King Donald I.

    Trump’s private lawyers have argued that New York state prosecutors in Manhattan investigating hush-money payments to two women, as well as House members seeking Trump’s financial records, have no right to such information because he enjoys “presidential immunity.” Lawyers in his White House counsel’s office, meanwhile, call the ongoing impeachment inquiry illegitimate and have refused to cooperate with it.

    “It’s hubris run amok. They’re feeling that their executive prerogative has no bounds,” said Douglas Brinkley, a presidential historian at Rice University, who added that while many presidents have asserted executive privilege, Trump and his Justice Department are interpreting it to mean that he is literally above the law. “I’ve never seen a president so brazen before. This takes executive power to sort of a dictatorial level.”

    Ruth Ben-Ghiat, a New York University history professor and expert on authoritarian regimes, said the basis of Trump’s impeachment inquiry — his attempt to coerce a foreign leader to investigate a political opponent — is particularly alarming. “They don’t seem to want to leave the election to a fair and free vote,” she said. “They don’t even offer a real reason, which is another retreat from democracy.””

    “Rudy Giuliani’s indicted associate Lev Parnas is prepared to tell Congress that Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) met with a former Ukrainian prosecutor who was ousted over corruption concerns in a bid to get dirt on Joe Biden, CNN reported Friday.

    A lawyer for Parnas, a Soviet-born American who has been indicted on federal campaign finance violations, said his client found out about the European meeting directly from the Ukrainian official.

    “Mr. Parnas learned from former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin that Nunes had met with Shokin in Vienna last December,” attorney Joseph Bondy told CNN.

    Shokin was forced out of office by Ukraine’s Parliament in 2016 under pressure from the U.S. and other Western nations over concerns he was soft on corruption. As vice president at the time, Biden was active in pushing for Shokin’s ouster.”

    Biden, at the direction of Obama and not alone. The EU wanted Shokin gone. This was not a personal desire of Biden. This was a world wide concern. And Burisma was NOT under investigation.

    Trump claims he is concerned about corruption and yet Nunes is meeting with the very corrupt official that started this all? You just can’t make this stuff up.

    “Bondy also told CNN that Parnas worked to connect Nunes, the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, with other Ukrainians who allegedly could come up with negative information on former Vice President Biden and the Democrats. If true, Nunes would be the first member of Congress linked to gathering opposition research on President Donald Trump’s political rival from a former foreign official, CNN noted — and one with a score to settle with Biden, who had pushed for Shokin’s ouster.

    Nunes declined repeated requests from CNN to comment.”

    No shit. They need to keep hammering Nunes until he not only leaves the committee but resigns from Congress. If he met with Shokin to get dirt on Biden for Trump to use and this trip was paid for by the American taxpayer, then Nunes is as corrupt as Shokin. AND TRUMP. And Mulvaney and Pompeo and Pence and Giuliani and……

    “The CEO of Ukraine’s state gas company, Naftogaz, is ready to give evidence in a U.S. federal investigation that is reportedly probing the business dealings of Rudy Giuliani, the CEO said in an exclusive interview on Friday.

    “I will with a high likelihood be invited to testify in this case,” Naftogaz CEO Andriy Kobolyev told TIME, citing his lawyers and contacts in the U.S. “If I am called, I would be willing to come and testify,” Kobolyev added.

    Federal prosecutors are investigating Giuliani for possible campaign finance violations and illegal lobbying, according to reports published in the past week by Bloomberg and the Wall Street Journal, both of which cited unnamed U.S. officials and sources familiar with the matter.”

    If Trump is so concerned about corruption, perhaps he should clean his own house.

    “Asked whether he is preparing to give prosecutors information about Giuliani or about Parnas and Fruman, the executive said, “Both. Everything is connected.””

    Connected. You betcha. They’ll lead to Nunes, Pompeo, Mulvaney, Perry, Bolton.

    In 1811, more than 200 enslaved people in present-day Louisiana launched the largest insurgency of people in bondage in U.S. history. The revolt lasted only a few days before the poorly armed rebels were crushed by a militia and U.S. troops. But more than two centuries later, their story is living on in a performance called “Slave Rebellion Reenactment.” Special Correspondent Brian Palmer reports.
