posted by Hannity Staff - 1.19.20

The White House released new details regarding the President’s impeachment defense team Friday; saying former independent counsel Ken Starr and attorney Alan Dershowitz will represent the Commander-in-Chief in the US Senate.

“Ken Starr, the former independent counsel who led the Whitewater investigation into then-President Bill Clinton, and attorney Alan Dershowitz will join President Trump’s impeachment defense team, reports Fox News. “The prominent lawyers were among several attorneys added to the team as the president’s impeachment trial gets underway, with proceedings kicking off a day earlier and moving into full swing next Tuesday.”

“The team will also include former Florida attorney general Pam Bondi, former federal prosecutor Robert Ray and Jane Raskin — who was part of the president’s legal team during former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe. Both Starr and Dershowitz are former Fox News contributors,” adds Fox.

'FANTASYLAND': McConnell Says It’s ‘Inconceivable’ 67 Senators Will Vote to Remove Trump

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.19.19

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell threw more cold-water on the Democrats’ impeachment frenzy Tuesday; saying “it’s inconceivable” that 67 Senators will vote to remove President Trump from office.

“It’s inconceivable to me that it would be 67 votes to remove the president from office,” McConnell told reporters during the third day of the public impeachment inquiry.

 

McConnell made similar comments last week.

“I can’t imagine a scenario under which President Trump would be removed from office with 67 votes in the Senate,” McConnell told USA Today.

“Nothing is happening because House Democrats seized with Trump derangement syndrome are consumed with this argument with the president,” he said.

McConnell made similar comments last week; telling reporters “I will say I’m pretty sure how it’s likely to end. If it were today, I don’t think there’s any question it would not lead to a removal.”

Meanwhile, House Democrats refuse to commit to a formal timeline of their investigation into the President’s dealings with Ukraine.

“I haven’t had a lot of time to pay attention to the president’s tweets and the legal implications of them. I just think that was totally wrong and inappropriate and typical of the president,” Pelosi told CBS News.

“I have no idea,” she responded when asked if the process could drag-on into 2020.

BLOWBACK: New Polls Show Majority of Americans AGAINST Removing President Trump

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.11.19

Two national polls are now showing a majority of Americans oppose the removal of President Trump through impeachment; a serious blow to Democrats currently drafting Articles against the Commander-in-Chief.

“According to the Monmouth poll – which was released Wednesday – 50 percent said the president should not be impeached and removed from office, with 45 percent calling for impeachment and removal from the White House. The numbers are little changed from Monmouth’s November poll, when a 51-44 percent majority opposed impeachment and removal,” reports Fox News.

“It’s a similar story in the Quinnipiac survey, which was released on Tuesday. By a 51-45 percent margin, Americans opposed impeaching and removing the president, little changed from the school’s late November poll,” adds Fox.
