Democrat Rep. Karen Bass (CA) said during an interview this week that if President Donald Trump wins re-election in 2020 that the Democrats will move to impeach him again and warned that Trump’s bank records could show that he’s “owned 100% by the Russians.”

Bass made the remarks during a Tuesday interview on “TMZ Live” shortly after House Democrats announced articles of impeachment against the president for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

“If the American people re-elect him what does that say to you about the American people?” TMZ asked.

“Well, you know, I guess I am ultimately an optimist and I believe the 2020 election, assuming we can stop him from trying to cheat, is in our hands and so I think it is out responsibility to turn people out and I feel very positive about that because ever since he’s been elected we’ve won thousands of races around the country,” Bass said. “If we didn’t’ impeach him, that creates a tremendous amount of rage amongst people like in our city for example in Los Angeles. But it’s really not about the election, it’s really about the fact that he has committed a crime, he has abused his power and he has consistently obstructed Congress from anything, he doesn’t even want people who don’t work for him anymore to speak to Congress.”

Bass, who acknowledged that there’s no such thing as double jeopardy in an impeachment trial because it’s political, went on to admit that Democrats would impeach Trump again if he won re-election.

“Suppose he gets re-elected but you’re right and you win back the Senate in a big way,” TMZ said. “If you did that, would you be inclined to take a second bite of the apple and re-introduce the exact same impeachment articles and then send it through a second time if you have a Democratic Senate on your side?”

“So, you know, yes, but I don’t think it would be exactly the same and here’s why, because even though we are impeaching him now, there are still a number of court cases, there’s a ton of cases that could come forward, for example, we could get his bank records and find out that he’s owned 100% by the Russians,” Bass responded. “So, you are absolutely right in your scenario but the only thing I would say slightly different is that it might not be the same articles of impeachment because the odds are we’d have a ton more information and then the odds of that sadly enough is he probably has other examples of criminal behavior.”

Bass appears to be incorrect about her claim that Democrats have won “thousands” of seats around the country during the Trump-era.

Former White House Press Secretary and current Fox News contributor Ari Fleischer tweeted last month that Republicans have actually lost fewer seats under Trump than Democrats lost under Obama during the same period of time.

“To put the political consequences of the Trump presidency into perspective, since Trump was elected, Rs have lost 329 seats in state legislatures,” Fleischer wrote. “At the same point in the Obama presidency, Ds lost 768 seats. MSM is exaggerating election 2019. A little perspective is needed.

Fleischer told The Daily Wire that the statistics came from Republican State Leadership Committee Communications Director David Abrams.

Last week, Democrat Rep. Al Green (TX) said that there was “no limit” to the number of times that Democrats could attempt to impeach and remove Trump from office.

“A president can be impeached more than once,” Green said. “So, we can do this, we can move forward with what we have on the table currently, we can take this before the Senate and we can still investigate other issues and when the president has committed additional offenses, and my suspicion is that he will, we can take those before the Senate.”

“There is no limit on the number of times the Senate can vote to convict or not a president, no limit to the number of times the House can vote to impeach or not a president,” Green continued. “So, my belief is that the speaker will probably say we’re going to move forward with what we have now, but we’re not going to end investigations and that there may be possible opportunities to do other things at a later time.”

Dear god she is like the entire cast of the Klumps rolled in to one. She sure as hell would need damn health care for all just to pay for the blood pressure pills sent to her cave by the barrel load.

These f****** demoSCUM all sound like 5 year old little girls. If he doesn't cheaat, if we can stop him from cheating, if he wins reelection in 2020 he's cheating. Your whole BS party is a total embarrassment to the political world- her in the US and outside of it. You all act like you belong in a f****** playpen with pacifiers and rattles instead of in OUR congress. What a bunch of whiny mindless sh**birds. President Trump will be reelected and if the American voters are fed up with your total BS -- most of you will be ousted and back out on the streets wondering -- how did this happen. BUT BUT BUT -- we had millions of illegals lined up to vote, we had a million deceased who promised to rise up and vote demoSCUM for us. Even your extensive voter fraud won't help you.

Okay, let me explain to everyone the situation with Trump's bank records/tax returns. Trump most likely pays very little to no income tax, and the Dems want to use that to their advantage. See, most people don't understand how the tax code is designed. Wealthy business people like Trump are entitled to a lot of big tax breaks because they normally invest back into the economy. In addition to the people that work directly for his companies, all of the business dealings and commercial real estate projects Trump has undertaken through the years has created jobs for many more people and generated revenue, which is good for the economy. That's considered investing in the economy, so Trump is entitled to big tax breaks that are 100% legal. The Dems know most people aren't aware of this, so they want to expose his tax records and say, "See, he's a crook. He doesn't pay his fair share of taxes." And Trump knows all too well that this is their plan. He also knows, like I said, most people don't understand how the tax code works, and wouldn't understand why he hasn't had to pay much, if any income taxes, and that could cost him some support, even though he's done nothing wrong, because there are people who would be swayed, simply because they don't know any better.

Unbelievable. She's admits right there they're searching for a crime to impeach him with. Congress needs to make laws against this. This isn't right. How would any of us feel if the government went after us with a magnifying glass searching for something to pin on us? Even though we haven't done anything wrong it would still cause us a lot of emotion stress and even trauma. That's grounds for a law suit in that alone. So why are they allowed to put our president and his family through this?

Nikki Haley Breaks with Trump: ‘We Shouldn’t Have Followed Him, and We Shouldn’t Have Listened to Him’

Published

on

Nikki Haley, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, believes that former President Donald Trump “let us down.”

Haley’s remarks come as the former president’s legal team prepares to present its defense of Trump during his second impeachment trial in the Senate.

In a Politico interview published Friday, Haley, former South Carolina governor, said that “we shouldn’t have followed” Trump.

“We need to acknowledge he let us down,” she said in an extensive profile. “He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again.”

She also told the outlet that she has not spoken to Trump since the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol, and takes issue with his remarks condemning former Vice President Mike Pence’s refusal to reject the Electoral College vote.

“When I tell you I’m angry, it’s an understatement,” she expressed. “I am so disappointed in the fact that [despite] the loyalty and friendship he had with Mike Pence, that he would do that to him. Like, I’m disgusted by it.”

The former ambassador, who many people are speculating may run for the White House in 2024, also added that Trump will never accept the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“There’s nothing that you’re ever going to do that’s going to make him feel like he legitimately lost the election,” she explained. “He’s got a big bully pulpit. He should be responsible with it.”

Haley also warned that many people still love the former president and will not stop supporting him just because he is out of office.

“I know how much people love Donald Trump,” she admitted. “I know it. I feel it. Whether it’s an RNC room or social media or talking to donors, I can tell you that the love they have for him is still very strong. That’s not going to just fall to the wayside. Nor do I think the Republican Party is going to go back to the way it was before Donald Trump. I don’t think it should.”

Haley added that people, instead, should “take the good that he built, leave the bad that he did, and get back to a place where we can be a good, valuable, effective party.”

“[I]t’s bigger than the party,” she insisted. “I hope our country can come together and figure out how we pull this back.”

Referring to Haley’s possible 2024 ambitions, Politico’s Tim Alberta wrote, “Since last fall, I’ve spent nearly six hours talking with Haley on-the-record. I’ve also spoken with nearly 70 people who know her: friends, associates, donors, staffers, former colleagues. From those conversations, two things are clear. First, Nikki Haley is going to run for president in 2024. Second, she doesn’t know which Nikki Haley will be on the ballot.”

Haley also said that she didn’t believe Trump had a chance of winning in a 2024 election scenario.

“I don’t think he can,” she admitted. “He’s fallen so far.”

“I think his business is suffering at this point,” she added. “I think he’s lost any sort of political viability he was going to have. I think he’s lost his social media, which meant the world to him. I mean, I think he’s lost the things that really could have kept him moving.”

WATCH: Trump Attorneys Destroy House Managers on Lying to American Public and Using Manipulated Tweet as Evidence

Published

on

President Trump’s defense team took the floor of the US Senate on Friday in defense of President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial.

Trump Attorney David Schoen absolutely destroyed the House Managers when he took to the floor of the US Senate.

At one point Schoen played video of the Democrat lawmakers lying about a Trump tweet.

House Impeachment Manager Eric Swalwell gave a riveting performance on Wednesday reading off Trump’s tweets with emotional appeal.

During this theatrical performance, Swalwell read off a Trump retweet by Jennifer Lynn Lawrence.

But there was one problem with the tweet. It was photoshopped.

Jennifer Lynn Lawrence has never been verified by Twitter. Democrats faked that to make it look more important.

On Friday Trump Attorney David Schoen destroyed Democrats for lying about this to the American public.

White House Suspends Deputy Press Secretary For Allegedly Sexually Harassing, Threatening Reporter

Published

on

The White House announced on Friday that it was suspending Deputy Press Secretary TJ Ducklo after a report surfaced alleging that he sexually harassed and threatened a female reporter who was getting ready to publish a report revealing that he was dating a reporter who had previously been tasked with covering Democrat Joe Biden.

“The confrontation began on Inauguration Day, January 20, after [Politico reporter Tara] Palmeri, a coauthor of Politico’s Playbook, contacted [Axios political reporter Alexi] McCammond for comment while one of her male colleagues left a message for Ducklo,” Vanity Fair reported. “Ducklo subsequently called a Playbook editor to object to the story, but was told to call the Playbook reporters with his concerns. But instead of calling the male reporter who initially contacted him, Ducklo tried to intimidate Palmeri by phone in an effort to kill the story. ‘I will destroy you,’ Ducklo told her, according to the sources, adding that he would ruin her reputation if she published it.”

“During the off-the-record call, Ducklo made derogatory and misogynistic comments, accusing Palmeri of only reporting on his relationship—which, due to the ethics questions that factor into the relationship between a journalist and White House official, falls under the purview of her reporting beat—because she was ‘jealous’ that an unidentified man in the past had ‘wanted to f***’ McCammond ‘and not you,’” the report added. “Ducklo also accused Palmeri of being ‘jealous’ of his relationship with McCammond.”

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said following the report that Ducklo has been suspended for a week over the incident.

“TJ Ducklo has apologized to the reporter, with whom he had a heated conversation about his personal life,” Psaki wrote on Twitter. “He is the first to acknowledge this is not the standard of behavior set out by the President.”

“In addition to his initial apology, he has sent the reporter a personal note expressing his profound regret,” she continued. “With the approval of the White House Chief of Staff, he has been placed on a one-week suspension without pay. In addition, when he returns, he will no longer be assigned to work with any reporters at Politico.”

Reporters called out the administration over the incident, highlighting how the Trump administration did not treat reporters that way as well as issues with the timeline of events with regard to the White House taking action to address the incident.

“The Vanity Fair piece indicates that Politico editors reached to the WH after the incident first occurred and the WH acknowledged it was inappropriate,” Spectator editor Amber Athey wrote on Twitter. “But they clearly didn’t have any interest in disciplining Ducklo until his behavior was made public.”

New York Magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzi wrote on Twitter: “I covered Donald Trump for 6 years. It is saying something that this behavior — from a Biden official — shocks me.”

Grabien founder Tom Elliott highlighted the following remarks that Biden made a few weeks ago: “If you’re ever working with me and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you I will fire you on the spot, on the spot. No if, ands, or buts. Everybody — everybody is entitled to be treated with decency & dignity.”

CNN anchor Jake Tapper responded to the quote, writing: “Standards that are not upheld are not standards. They’re lies.”
