House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy threw even more cold-water on the Democrats’ impeachment fantasy Wednesday; asking his colleagues on the other side of the aisle if they “really want to demean impeachment this low.”
“Did the President do anything wrong?” asked one reporter.
“He did nothing to be Impeached,” said McCarthy.
“But did he do anything that bothers you?” she pressed.
“That’s not the question! There are people I work with every day… The Speaker does something that bothers me, my own colleagues do something that bother me. But you want to demean impeachment that low?” fired-back the GOP leader.

ADAM’S ADMISSION: Schiff Memo ACTUALLY CONFIRMS FBI’s Misuse of ‘Trump Dossier’
Ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff released his highly-anticipated “rebuttal” to Rep. Devin Nunes’ bombshell FISA report over the weekend; inadvertently confirming the FBI’s use of the ‘Trump Dossier’ to obtain surveillance warrants.
According to former assistant US attorney Andrew McCarthy, Schiff’s report details the bureau’s use of Christopher Steele’s shady dossier to obtain FISA warrants against the Trump campaign, saying the Democrat “rebuttal” shows the “FBI and Justice Department heavily relied on the Steel Dossier’s uncorroborated allegations.”
“You know this is true because, notwithstanding the claim that ‘only narrow use’ was made ‘of information from Steele’s sources,’ the Democrats end up acknowledging that ‘only narrow use’ actually means significant use,” writes McCarthy in the National Review.
Schiff’s memo comes weeks after Nunes released his four-page bombshell report that raised serious questions over how the DOJ used the Clinton-financed Trump dossier to obtain FISA warrants against at least one Trump associate.
Congressional leaders -such as Sen. Chuck Grassley- have vowed to get to the bottom of whether former Obama officials used the shady document to illegally spy on the Trump campaign ahead of the 2016 election.

‘MAGA’ MISTAKE! Covington Student SUES Washington Post for $250 MILLION Over Viral Video
Lawyers representing the Covington High School student featured in a now infamous viral video announced Tuesday night their plans to sue the Washington Post for $250 million in “punitive damages.”
The lawsuit -filed in Kentucky- claims the Post used “a modern-day form of McCarthyism” by “using its vast financial resources to enter the bully pulpit by publishing a series of false and defamatory print and online articles … to smear a young boy who was in its view an acceptable casualty in their war against the president.”
Court filings show the suit claims the national newspaper “falsely accused Nicholas of … ‘accost[ing]’ Phillips by ‘suddenly swarm[ing]’ him in a ‘threaten[ing]’ and ‘physically intimidat[ing]’ manner … ‘block[ing]’ Phillips path, refusing to allow Phillips ‘to retreat,’ ‘taunting the dispersing indigenous crowd,’ [and] chanting, ‘Build that wall,’ ‘Trump2020,’ or ‘Go back to Africa,’ and otherwise engaging in racist and improper conduct.”
