Russian Agent Calif. Rep. Devin Nunes?

More light is shone, each day on the possibility that the Russians have compromised Rep. Nunes. He is actions are those of an individual desperately trying to deflect attention away from Russian meddling in American politics. One has to wonder what is driving his blatant and obvious attempt protect Trump and other folks involved in the Russian/Trump fiasco. He is determined to protect Trump, no matter how it affects the United States. There is a distinct possibility that Special Prosecutor Mueller already has the goods on him and is just waiting for the right time to drop this bombshell. Many people have questioned Nunes motives for trying so hard to discredit Special Prosecutor Mueller and taint any findings that his investigation turn up that shines the light on Trump and his campaign officials corruption. It is especially bothersome to see and hear him and his flunkies, including Gowdy, Hannity and other suckups demanding that they have more classified information currently in the hands of the Justice Department. There is little concern that making some of this information public, could possibly expose people to harm and danger from the Russians. In January of 2018 there were several actions by Nunes that caused many people to question his motives for conspiring with the White House, and sharing secret information that may well have been related to the Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign and other illegal activities undertaken by Trump folks. Nunes has to be more than a little concerned about the number of Trump folks who had contact with Russian Agents. It is certain that he wish he had access to all of the information that Mueller has on Trump and his folks. He has to wonder what Mueller has uncovered about his relationship with Trump and his campaign. He is probably wondering how much Mueller has uncovered about his relationship with Hannity, Dobbs, Cain and the whole propaganda stable at Fox. Eventually the truth about Nunes will surface. The sooner the better. The damage he and his cronies are causing America is immeasurable.

Enough already

As the Trump saga heats up, the possibility of impeachment is talked about in some quarters. It is obvious that Trump is taking lots of liberties as President that certainly invites a really close look at his actions. Although, many of his actions have yet to be proven that he has broken any laws that would stand the high standards that  warrants impeachment.

A brief thoughtful study prepared by a committee of the association of the Bar of the City of New York. Taking liberty with the brief- they made the following observation.

The grounds for impeachment are not limited to or synonymous with crimes (indeed act constituting a crime may not be sufficient for the impeachment of an office holder in all circumstances.) Rather we believe that acts, which undermine the integrity of government, are sufficient grounds whether or not they happen to constitute offenses under the general criminal law. In our view, the essential nexus to damaging the integrity of government may be found in acts, which constitutes corruption in, or flagrant abuse of the powers of official position. It may also be found in acts which, without directly affecting governmental processes, undermine that degree of public confidence in the probity of executive and judicial officers that is essential to the effectiveness in a free society… At the heart of the matter is the determination that the officeholder has demonstrated by his actions that he is unfit to continue in the office in question.

As with Nixon, there is enough evidence that Trump has not carried out the duties of the President as spelled out in the Constitution. In the Resolution to impeach Nixon, Article I plainly states Nixon’s behavior that warranted impeachment.

Excerpts regarding Nixon’s impending Impeachment taken from Constitutional Law, Cases and Materials by Gerald Gunther. University Casebook Series.

Article I

In his conduct of the office of President of the United States, Richard M. Nixon, in violation of his constitutional oath to faithfully execute the office of President of the United States and to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that laws be faithfully executed, has prevented, obstructed, and impeded the administration of justice.

Article II of the Impeachment Resolution makes the same argument that Nixon is unfit to remain in office because of his behavior as President to the United States.

It is time Congress stop trying to protect President Trump from the Justice Department, get a backbone and remove Trump from office. It is beginning to look like there are those in congress that cannot not do their duties because of the possibility they are personally involved in the Trump web of deception. Chairman Nunes comes to mind. He is working overtime to either shut down the investigation or undermine the efforts of the Justice Department. His behavior since Trump took office deserves some serious examination. Trump has undermined the Separation of Powers of the US Government because Congress, under the leadership of the Republican Party has relinquished its power of oversight of the Office of the President of the United States.
