Will Donald Trump Be Impeached?

The best way to gauge the probability of Trump being impeached or not is to look back at history. There you will find that even if the process begins, the outcome of such hasn’t netted the results Congress were seeking.

The Mueller report isn’t about exoneration or innocence, it was whether there was sufficient evidence to support an indictment against Donald Trump, in which he colluded with Russian officials to win the 2016 Presidential election. The report says in essence, there isn’t enough evidence to support an indictment. Some people, who naively understand the judicial system, insist that a verdict should have been made of guilt or innocence, that’s not how a Federal investigation by the Office of Special Counsel works.

Impeachment_of_TrumpThe conclusion of the public debate isn’t over, largely because the politics, which most of us seem to drawn to like moths to a flame, want to see the modern day equivalent of Trump drawn & quartered. The news media is having a bonfire candlelight vigil over this, because it gets clicks and eyeballs, which translate into ad revenue.

The best way to gauge the probability of Trump being impeached or not, is to look back at history. The House has on several occasions written articles of impeachment. On May 16, 1868 the Senate failed to convict Andrew Johnson on one of the articles, with the 35–19 vote in favor of conviction falling short of the necessary two-thirds majority by a single vote. This is as close as it’s ever come to an actual impeachment of a sitting President.

Influence is normal politics, and aside from politics, all of us attempt to influence other people, this is normal behavior under given circumstances. Going a step further, if you were elected to a public office of any significant level, and before you even took office, there were people in government, sworn to protect the “sanctity of the ballot box”, attempting to destroy your campaign, don’t you think you might be on the defensive? Would you be attempting, of all people, to influence your campaign people, and attorney to see things your way? You bet your sweet bippy!

National Security Advisor Michael Flynn was cleared by the FBI of any malfeasance in the phone calls that they had tapped, which Flynn had with the Russian ambassador. Flynn had been cleared on those. There were other things, under the “Logan Act”, whether or not he accepted money for a speech illegally. He was later charged for lying to the FBI. Overall, it was a lot of newsprint over a big fat nothing burger. It wasn’t without consequences for Flynn. He’s been forced to sell his Virginia home to help pay for the exorbitant legal fees.

Donald F. McGahn II is an American lawyer and is the current White House Counsel and Assistant to the President Donald Trump. It’s neither corruption or obstruction to attempt to fend off constant attacks. Keep in mind this investigation was launched from a FISA warrant that arguably was illegal, because it came through a “leaked” bogus intelligence report. The Comey, McCabe support of the Steele dossier, primarily a work of fiction, was used to obtain the original warrant.

So, what’s the net of all that? Trump had every right to fire Comey, even without this as background. That’s within his authority. The fact that Comey, McCabe & Strozk, were up constitution-page-portionto their eyeballs in deceitful behavior, designed to thwart (unsuccessfully), Trump’s campaign, and they continued after he was elected, to get him removed from office through surreptitious leaks to the press.

Some claim, “the president’s job is to enforce federal law ~ ordering obstruction to save himself from the consequences of his own behavior is unlawful, defenseless and condemnable.” Can I get a Harrumph!?

When FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe announced in January he would retire, upon learning he potentially lied under oath, and after FBI text messages revealed severe anti-Trump bias during the criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton, Comey publicly defended him.”

Some weeks later, during an interview with The View, Comey said he launched the leak investigation which ultimately led to McCabe’s firing.

The McCabe case illustrates what an organization committed to the truth looks like. I ordered that investigation,” Comey said. “The inspector general found that he lied, and there are severe consequences in the Justice Department for lying as there should be throughout the government.

See anything contradictory there?

From a legal sense, I’m not qualified to say the President was guilty of obstruction of justice, and I dare say neither are you. We can debate this until the cows come home, but in the end it’s not something I can control or have any influence. I just wish people would put their energies to constructive, beneficial things for our country, rather than trying to tear someone down.

Odds may be long on Trump being impeached, but that’s not likely to deter Democrats and their supporters. Even if they’re unsuccessful, they hope the damage that they do will give them the win in the 2020 Presidential election.

 

Roller Coasters – Mueller Report – Donald Trump

[ April 18, 2019 ]Whitehouse_front_view_1

What do those 3 things have in common? Well for starters, we’ve been on this never-ending quest to repudiate the Donald Trump presidency through an ongoing independent investigation. There have been repeated news stories about how any day now we’re going to have the findings of the Mueller Report, and it’s going to be the end of his presidency. Then we would hear ‘unofficial – official’ denials which counter those bold claims.

Back and forth, up and down, until the report came out and was summarized by Attorney General William P. Barr. That wasn’t enough. The politicos weren’t happy! How were late night television comedians not going to look like even greater blithering fools? We must have more! Bring us the full report! Well, they got it.

Mueller_report_excerpt_1
I find it almost amusing if it weren’t for the ramifications of the continual pursuit by partisans and politicos, who have from the outset of President Trump’s election, sought by any means possible to reject the 2016 election results. It’s gone way past denial, to obsession, and a very sad experience for our country.

If you read these articles, about the same Mueller report, it’s rather obvious the Washington Post is coloring a factual story with rumors and innuendo, and altering the findings from the Mueller report to suit their own bias. The type of people working for the Post, as well as many other ‘News Organizations’, rested their entire journalistic reputation on Russia and Trump conspired to alter the outcome of the 2016 election.

Now they summarize the report incorrectly, in hope that you won’t read it, or those points summarized by a more objective analysis. You will find that I include the link to the actual report which you may read to understand how far off the truth some will go to continue to smear a President, and still try to support their narratives, which they so heavily invested in for over two years.

Thankfully, Glenn Greeenwald doesn’t sell out his personal integrity for a hyperbolic news story.

What’s even more revealing are the many so-called, ‘Intelligence Organizations’, who put forth their summarized reports that Russia had worked through US contacts (assumed to be from the Trump campaign), to channel votes in some manner away from Hillary Clinton and for Donald Trump.

The results of this over 2 year, Carte Blanche investigation, there wasn’t any collusion or election tampering by the Trump campaign in coordination with Russia. Further, none of the Trump lower level people, had anything to do with election tampering, or steering the election with the help from Russian spies.

It’s been a work of fiction from start to finish, and it has to be one of the most outstanding examples of a massive coordinated fraud manufactured by political supporters of the Democrat party. What’s even more disturbing will be their continual muck raking in hope of securing the 2020 Presidential election, regardless of their platform. Clearly, destruction, defamation, and fraud are more important than serving the people of our country.

Here’s another example by a formerly respectable newspaper with headlines like this;
After Mueller report release, US allies, foes are united in skepticism on one issue: The redactions
The Washington Post Published 12:29 pm EDT, Thursday, April 18, 2019

Here’s another story to mislead and continue to maintain a false story.

Our politics stink and our national media outlets generate bogus information in order to cover up their own malfeasance and incompetence.
Here’s the Mueller Report. It’s probably best you read this rather than rely on the tainted media.

National Entertainment – Political Soap Opera Lie

☆ The National Blatant – News Entertainment – Political Soap Opera Lie ☆

I know it’s easy to criticize, but when I see or read a story that repeats fiction & drama, packages it as fact on a massive scale, I just have to comment.

I’m referring to this ongoing FBI investigation into Russian collusion with the Trump campaign. Let me begin by stating the obvious, Donald Trump won the election in 2016 by a simple, well known strategy. He ran a campaign without assumptions on which states “were in the bag”, by visiting those who were supposedly going to vote Democrat. This included among others, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida. His campaign managers knew full well that the key to victory is to win at least 270 votes in the electoral college.

The key to debunking this false story, is to understand how the electoral college vote works. I’m going to quote from an NPR article written 2 November 2016.

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆
“To win the presidency, you don’t have to win the majority of the popular vote. You have to win the majority of electoral votes — that is, 270 of them.”

“In most states, a candidate wins electoral votes by winning the most voters.

“So. Win a state by just one vote, and you win all of its electoral votes (unless you live in Nebraska or Maine, which divvy up their votes a little differently).”
☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

The key is still to win the popular vote. That’s the beginning and ending of this whole national mythical “boogie man”, story. The inherent protection, and incredibly simple, yet intelligent method to select our leadership, is a representative voting system which prevents just a handful of densely populated urban areas as representative of the entire country. It’s possible to gain 270 electoral votes through 11 of the most populated states, such as California, Texas, New York, Florida, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Ohio, Michigan, Georgia, North Carolina, New Jersey, for example, but in reality, that’s not how the 2016 election finished.

Hillary Clinton won the popular vote in some of the most densely populated urban areas such as, New York City, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, Seattle, etc. What she didn’t gain though, were the most states and the majority of the electoral vote. There are 540 votes possible, and Clinton won just 232 while Trump won 306 of the electoral vote. Her overall popular vote was higher, but not the electoral college vote. These facts are key to understand just how much fabrication, or unfounded anxiety, there is in the repeated false narrative, “The Russians Hacked Our Election”.

No they didn’t, and if you follow the rest of my explanation, you should be able to see for yourself, the media and the “Intelligence Community”, are weaving a tale.

Forbes_2016_Electoral_College_map_a

Most people who complain about the electoral college, either don’t understand why it’s such a good system, or refuse to believe it even after it’s explained. It also makes it vastly more difficult to affect the outcome of the election by outside electronic “hacked” alterations.

Since there isn’t a single, nationwide, homogeneous voting system, an outside bad actor, can’t alter the outcome of the election. An outside perpetrator may be able to get into a less than secure, local database, but actual voting tallies are performed at precinct levels and differ widely in methods from other localities, even in the same state. Recall the election when George Bush & Al Gore ran against each other, and there was a big dust up over the punch ballots being used in certain counties in Florida. That system wasn’t even state wide, so “hanging chads”, were unique and paper ballots had to be reviewed. That’s just not a system, as flawed as it is, which could have had a rogue state, or spy agency, come in and electronically alter the outcome.

Why is this so important to know? It’s because once you know this information, and take enough time to think about these basic facts, then the repeated news stories, and all the Mueller, Trump drama, can be seen for what it really is, and that’s political Kabuki theater.

CBS 60 Minutes just did a story on the 2016 election hacking, spy-craft. I encourage you to go to the 60 Minutes Web page and watch the video or go to YouTube to understand what I’m saying a little better. I also probably know more about computer networks, and how they function than the average person, since I’ve worked as an IT professional for many years. I’ve also done large scale communications programming, although that’s not a current skill set.

Here’s a summary of the basic 60 Minutes story.

☆ Some Russian cyber-techs infiltrate Illinois state voting records. After about 3 weeks, their outside network activities intensify. Illinois election records IT personnel take note of how much they’re being slammed from outside network traffic. They inform the FBI, and their IT super techs help investigate the penetration. They agree with the Illinois IT team, you’ve been hacked. Meanwhile, at an unknown point in the time-line, Illinois voting records IT personnel manage to stop the breach. Still, they’re pretty sure their voter database information has been obtained by an outside organization.

* The facts behind the Illinois database access; the hackers extracted personal information on roughly 90,000 registered voters, and none of the information was expunged or altered.

The FBI compares their collected network data, to the patterns (signatures or fingerprints which they like to call it, but that’s not a technical description), to other states voting records IT management, and at least 20 other states are likely to have been penetrated. In addition to that, the Democrat National Committee data records have been hacked. Understandably, because if you know anything about network spy-craft, your weakest links are usually the same everywhere. The biggest, most important users, are often those with the patterns sought out by hackers. They’re not IT disciplined, they don’t like to follow rules, and they seldom use strong, secure passwords. This isn’t always the way ‘hackers’ get in, but it’s a common recurring problem, and even the lead IT person can only politely suggest that the head honchos follow their rules.

We saw that huge security problem play out on national TV, when Hillary Clinton faced a Congressional committee and insisted she was justified in using her own private servers. No matter which side of the issue you found yourself on in that past extravaganza, it’s a prime example of how arrogance and power always win over any technical support opposition. Public or private, any tech person, if they want to keep their job, will go along with their bosses requests, no matter how impactful those decisions are on security.

So, we know there were multiple breeches performed by clever outsiders. The information they gave us through the media outlets are, John Podesta, Hillary Clinton, and Huma Abedin, emails revealed the Democrats in power, and under the influence of the Clinton campaign undermined the campaign of Bernie Sanders in the Democrat primary runoff. This was later confirmed by Former DNC Chair Donna Brazile in her Tell-All Book.

And we know that some of Donald Trump key people conducted meetings with influential Russians, to see if there was any dirt they could dish on Hillary Clinton and her campaign.

Overall conclusion’s by the 60 Minutes story? Russian hackers broke into some of our voter record databases and emails (NEWS FLASH: they’ve been doing that to large US Corporations for a couple of decades – including our banks). Even 60 minutes, and the people they interviewed were careful enough with the facts to not make the false claim, that success in breaching voting records changes the actual vote, in November. What they did claim was, “it undermines the integrity and the confidence Americans might have in our Democratic system.”

And here’s the final point I wish to make. That’s a far stretch, our politicians have been successful in undermining our country and election process for decades. Can anyone recall, Watergate? If you wish to remain ignorant on how votes are cast, collected, and counted; then you’re going to believe that somehow the Russians set the fox loose into the chicken coop, and rousted all the chickens, making them (this implies you), to change your vote for Trump. I’m quite certain you didn’t decide to change your mind on who to vote for because those rascally Russians have your name, home address, and phone number.

In case you want to know something more, the IP address they revealed in the 60 Minutes story can be traced to the following. No, they didn’t give you this info, but I found it out of curiosity.

registered person: Vilko Damianov
address: 4000, Bulgaria, Plovdiv, 2 Lyuben Karavelov, unit 5.
