posted by Hannity Staff - 10.01.19

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo rejected a series of Democratic demands regarding the Ukraine Tuesday; saying left-wing lawmakers were attempting to “bully and intimidate” Trump officials.

“I am concerned with aspects of your request,” Pompeo wrote to Rep. Eliot Engel, Chair of the Committee. “I will not tolerate such tactics, and I will use all means at my disposal to prevent and expose any attempts to intimidate the dedicated professionals.”

“I’m concerned with aspects of the Committee’s request that can be understood only as an attempt to intimidate, bully, & treat improperly the distinguished professionals of the Department of State, including several career FSOs,” Pompeo posted on Twitter.

“Let me be clear: I will not tolerate such tactics, and I will use all means at my disposal to prevent and expose any attempts to intimidate the dedicated professionals whom I am proud to lead and serve alongside at the Department of State,” he added.

Democrats in the House of Representatives issued a subpoena to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo Friday; demanding he hand-over documents to the Foreign Affairs Committee regarding President Trump’s personal phone call with the leader of Ukraine.

“The subpoena, which demands Pompeo provide documents by Oct. 4, was accompanied by a plan to depose five State Department officials, including Ambassador Kurt Volker, who reportedly arranged for Trump’s personal lawyer to meet with high-level Ukrainian officials, and Marie Yovanovitch, who was removed as U.S. ambassador to Ukraine by Trump,” reports Politico.

“The subpoenaed documents shall be part of the impeachment inquiry and shared among the Committees. Your failure or refusal to comply with the subpoena shall constitute evidence of obstruction of the House’s impeachment inquiry,” said a written statement from House Foreign Affairs Chairman Eliot Engel, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff and House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings.

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.27.19

President Trump’s re-election campaign and the Republican Party have reportedly raised $13 million since Nancy Pelosi announced her official impeachment push earlier this week.

President Trump’s reelection campaign and the GOP have raised $13 million since Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced Tuesday that House Democrats would launch a formal impeachment inquiry into Trump amid scrutiny over his interactions with Ukraine,” reports The Hill.

“A Trump campaign official confirmed the figure to The Hill, saying it represented funds raised by the campaign as well as the Republican National Committee (RNC),” adds the website.

“A BIG thank you to @SpeakerPelosi and the Democrats – in the last 48 hours we have raised $8.5 million dollars in small dollar donations. People are sick of your nonsense but please keep it up — you are handing @realDonaldTrump the win in 2020!” posted Eric Trump on social media.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi officially endorsed an impeachment inquiry into President Trump Tuesday evening; announcing her plan after days of media speculation regarding the Commander-in-Chief’s private conversation with the leader of Ukraine.

“I am currently at the United Nations representing our Country, but have authorized the release tomorrow of the complete, fully declassified and unredacted transcript of my phone conversation with President Zelensky of Ukraine,” posted Trump on Twitter. “You will see it was a very friendly and totally appropriate call. No pressure and, unlike Joe Biden and his son, NO quid pro quo! This is nothing more than a continuation of the Greatest and most Destructive Witch Hunt of all time!”

“The decision sets up an election season clash between Trump and Congress that seems certain to exacerbate the nation’s fierce partisan divides and inject deep uncertainty into the 2020 presidential contest. The probe is expected to focus in part on reports that Trump pressed Ukraine’s president to help investigate Democratic rival Joe Biden,” reports the Associated Press.

BACKING OFF? After Demanding Impeachment, Hillary Warns Dems Not to ‘Jump to Conclusions’

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.01.19

Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton seemingly backed-off her latest calls for impeachment Tuesday; warning fellow Democrats to not “jump to any conclusions” on the Ukraine.

I think the evidence concerning Ukraine is so dramatic and irrefutable because it came right out of the White House. So let the impeachment inquiry proceed,” Clinton told ABC News. “I know that they will do a thoughtful, thorough job. Nobody should jump to any conclusions.”

“From everything we know and we don’t know much, this is an experienced person who saw things that bothered him. That’s what the whole whistle-blower statute is for. And it is to protect their identity. And I understand he’s going to testify and we’ll let the process unfold,” she added.

Clinton’s comments are a stark contrast to statement she made earlier this week, writing “The president of the United States has betrayed our country. That’s not a political statement—it’s a harsh reality, and we must act. He is a clear and present danger to the things that keep us strong and free. I support impeachment.”

President Bill Clinton was the second president in the history of the United States to be impeached by the House of Representatives.
