Members of the House Intelligence Committee will begin reviewing a report Monday on the panel’s investigation of President Donald Trump’s efforts to press Ukraine to investigate his Democratic adversaries, a crucial step in the House’s fast-moving impeachment inquiry.

Lawmakers on the panel will get a 24-hour review period, according to internal guidance sent to committee members and obtained by POLITICO. On Tuesday, the panel is expected to approve the findings — likely on a party-line vote — teeing it up for consideration by the Judiciary Committee, which is in turn expected to draft and consider articles of impeachment in the coming weeks.

Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff had indicated in a letter to colleagues earlier this week that a report would be coming “soon” from his committee but had not provided a specific timeframe.

Schiff had also indicated that his committee was still open to receiving new witnesses or testimony as it began to draft the report, but it’s unclear if any new information has become available since lawmakers departed for a one-week Thanksgiving recess.

I know Trump keeps referring to this as the “Do Nothing Congress,”  but considering the speed with which they got this report ready, and the fact that they have passed over 300 bills which are currently collecting dust in the Republican-controlled Senate, I think they are actually the “Do Everything Congress.”

Nancy Pelosi runs a tight ship and from everything that I have seen she, and her people, are well prepared to deal with GOP obstructionism and attacks from the conservative media.

Let the games begin.

    Moral basis? Like when u tried to get away with molesting young girls?

    Roy Moore calls for return to 1960’s morality: ‘We had the Pledge of Allegiance” – now ‘we have drag queens teaching kindergarten’

    Alabama Republican U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore went on a lengthy, far right wing tirade, telling supporters last week he wants to take the country back to the morality America had in the 1960’s and 1970’s. Moore, who was credibly accused by multiple women of sexual misconduct, including child sexual assault, delivered a long list of changes the nation has seen in the past 60 or so years. He lamented that back then the nation had the Pledge of Allegiance (as it still does), but now the country has drag queens teaching kindergarten children – as if that were bad.

    ““We have got to go back to what we did back in the sixties and seventies back to a moral basis,” Moore told members of the Huntsville Republican Men’s Breakfast group, as the Alabama Political Reporter noted (video below). “We did not have a national healthcare system. You know when Obama passed this thing rising all our costs and business started going down the tube everybody said it was going to be repealed. You never hear anybody in Congress talk about it now.”

    IMPEACHMENT

    Law-and-order or conspiracy? How political parties frame the impeachment battle will help decide Trump’s fate

    … Democrats, led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, are betting that public opinion will move toward impeachment and removal once more information is made public. To try to shape public opinion they are relying on a law-and-order frame that tells Americans that the impeachment inquiry is legitimate and legally justified.

    Democrats are positioning themselves as the only ones willing to uphold the rule of law and the Constitution.

    Republicans, led by President Trump, are counting on their power to frame reality to prevent the public from moving toward impeachment.

    The GOP is relying on a conspiracy frame that tells Americans that the impeachment inquiry is illegitimate and part of a plot to destroy America. Republicans are positioning themselves as the only ones who are not involved in the plot against Trump and America.

    ‘The president cheated in the 2020 election’: Obama lawyer says ‘this looks like an organized crime enterprise’

    ‘The president cheated in the 2020 election’:

    President Barack Obama’s former acting Solicitor General explained the impeachment inquiry as President Donald Trump cheating in the 2020 election campaign.

    Neal Katyal was interviewed by MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace on “Deadline: White House” on Friday. Katyal is the author of the new book Impeach: The Case Against Donald Trump.

    “Neal, one of the things that’s so stark and the three of us watched every minute of the testimony, but even if you just caught the highlights on the local news, it’s clear that everybody knew something was wrong,” Wallace said. “John Bolton, the National Security Adviser, called it a drug deal and described Rudy Giuliani as someone who was going to explode on everybody.”

    “Officials sent their deputies to the White House Counsel’s Office. What is the knowledge of criminality and the knowledge of wrongdoing from the highest levels of the White House, the president, say to you?” Wallace asked.

    **“It says this looks like almost an organized crime enterprise in which everyone around the boss knows exactly what’s going on, and the boss knows what’s going on as well, and is hoping that his aides don’t flip on them,” Katyal replied.

    “The central allegation here is the president cheated in the 2020 election by going and trying to seek help from a foreign government,” he explained.

    FB EXCERPTS>”Senator John Neely Kennedy, Republican from Louisiana isn’t stupid. He’s a highly educated and cunning man, who changes political parties and personalities at will. Anything to seize and maintain power. He pretends to be stupid, cultivating a hick Southern country-boy persona, saying deliberately stupid and wrong things to hide his background and education, playing dumb specifically so as to appeal to the ignorant and stupid that propelled him into office.
    Kennedy isn’t trying to hide a mistress or a gay lover or unexplained millions.
    No. He’s trying to hide that he’s INTELLIGENT
    This is the ridiculous natural end state of an ideology that has spent decades vilifying education and critical thought as elitism and unamerican.
    THAT makes him a perfect target for Russian Information Warfare.
    The Kremlin doesn’t have to blackmail Kennedy into doing Putin’s bidding, they just have to push the very things Kennedy’s own supporters WANT to believe. No matter how ridiculous. No matter how easily proven wrong.
    The dumber the better.”

    “Kennedy can’t be held to account for it.
    Unlike Hanssen or Walker or Ames, you can’t prosecute a politician for PRETENDING to believe an idiotic conspiracy theory solely in order to pander to the lowest common denominator.
    There’s no law against being stupid, by accident or on purpose.
    The simple truth of the matter is that the dumber the population, the more ignorant, the more willing to believe something solely in order to childishly “own” others, the more effective this form of Information Warfare is.”<Jim Wright

    Giuliani is under criminal investigation. There is a good chance that he is going to get charged with a crime, so his pivot from warning Trump that he has insurance to being the president’s number one cheerleader is not surprising.

    The president’s lawyer is in big trouble and he is trying to get a pardon by $UCKing up on Twitter.
