SCHIFF BRIGHT

It was bad enough for House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) to subpoena the phone records of businessman Lev Parnas and President Donald Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani and other political opponents, but when he released them in his impeachment report it was a stunning abuse of power. In the view of columnist Kimberly Strassel, Schiff’s move “trampled law and responsibility…it was a disgraceful breach of ethical and legal propriety.”

It’s only fair, for a moment, to laud President Donald Trump’s coup at killing Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi by U.S. forces and the good taste not to publish photos of officials reacting to the hit. It’s understandable if some people hesitate to utter the word “coup” because of how it’s used by Republicans to describe the impeachment inquiry being conducted in congress.

There he goes again.

Rudy Giuliani, who has turned into a gusher of embarrassment for lawyers, the City of New York and sometimes for his client, Donald Trump, has been known to say things that often-run counter to the Trump narrative.

He’s done it again.  This, time, borrowing once again some Watergate parlance, outed by the "smoking tweet".

It is time for the madman to say goodbye.  It is not up to me, for I have no power over what the Republicans do. It is up to you, my Republican friends. Singularly, the Republican members of the House of Representatives but primarily, those in the Senate.  Moreso, it is time for everyday Republicans (and major Trump supporter) to say, we are now seriously over the line of right. We have stepped solidly into wrong.

It’s getting “Curiouser and curiouser!” for sure. And, I’m absolutely believing that in this Alice and Wonderland world of Trump era politics that “we’re all mad here” already, so nothing should shock any of us, ever.

Still, I’m not quite sure how else to explain it.

For weeks House Democrats hyped the scheduled public testimony of former Trump attorney Michael Cohen. They chose to hold the congressional hearing while the President was in Hanoi, Vietnam negotiating with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. Of course, the objective was to distract the media from the historic summit, minimizing any potential diplomatic achievements, while focusing on the salacious allegations of an embittered and disbarred attorney.

The president says he doesn’t want the Mueller investigation to affect the midterms so, naturally, he’s doing everything in his power to make sure it does with eight states holding primaries on Tuesday. Unable to restrain himself, Donald Trump tweeted on Monday, that he has unfettered power to pardon himself for non-existent crimes. His attorney, Rudy Giuliani, went further and claimed the president can’t be indicted, even if he murdered former FBI director, James Comey, and, by extension, if he did, he could pardon himself for that, too.

truthequalsOn Wednesday, "America's Lawyer" explained why he’s concerned about Trump testifying: 

“Truth is relative. They may have a different version of the truth than we do.”

Apparently, it doesn’t take long for those surrounding Donald Trump to embrace and promote alternative realities.

trump balco It’s a common refrain by Republicans that the Russia investigation, headed by Robert Mueller, should be wrapped-up as soon as possible. Trump surrogate, Rudy Giuliani, has appeared, lately, on television more often than Stormy Daniels’ lawyer and Trump antagonist, Michael Avenatti, to make this point. Both are highly entertaining but each has failed to reveal more substance than form.
