Looks like DJT hasn't been very good for Devin Nunes.

From today's WaPo:

Nunes's Democratic Challenger Says Donations Soared After Impeachment Hearings Began

The important takeaway from the short is this; Nunes used to win reelection by double digits.

No more.

Despite representing a politically conservative area, last year (2018 midterms), Nunes won by a mere 5.5 percentage points.

Since the 2018 midterms were about Trump, poor Devin did indeed suffer, and may be ripe for picking off.

 

He literally funded his opponents campaign with his persistent regurgitation of Russian propaganda and meaningless nonsense during a televised congressional hearing.  He, like so many republicans forget that most Americans do not support anything about this corrupt Liar in Chief.

I know many nurses in his district who are already working for a challenger. Seems many who voted for him in the past say he stays away from his district. That he lives on Fox News and D.C.

Also he is suing people who once voted for him and are now stating publicly that the are against him being reelected again. He is even suing a former supporter who is now an outspoken retired farmer.

‘Never seen anything like this’: Devin Nunes lawsuits are confusing fellow Republicans

Republicans who typically support Rep. Devin Nunes are less willing to speak up for him since he filed a lawsuit against one of his own constituents.

The lawsuit is Nunes’ third in which he alleges that political consultants conspired against him to damage his chances for reelection last year. Nunes, R-Calif., won the race against Democratic challenger Andrew Janz, but by a closer margin than in his previous campaigns.

The previous two cases targeted social media giant Twitter and McClatchy. They also named Liz Mair, a Republican political strategist.

The new case names four California residents, one of whom is Paul Buxman, a retired farmer who says he voted for Nunes in the past.

Critics of Nunes, who is one of about three dozen House Republicans being targeted by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, were quick to seize on the difference between suing corporations and suing a retired constituent...

Devin Nunes clearly isn't the sharpest tool in the shed, is he?

Again, I thought he was doll with a pull string, that activated one of three phrases, programmed into his voice box, while listening to impeachment hearings.

How did the others on the panel, keep themselves from rolling their eyes when he started his nightly soliloquy of nonsense?

He was an embarrassment!

I urge all to listen to Scott Simon's remembrance on NPR, of William Ruckelshaus.

Ruckelshaus, was of course, the member of the Nixon administration who famously resigned, rather than engage in, and uphold illegal activities.

Contrast his conduct, against the behavior of today's Trump cultists.

It is a shame, just how far the Republican party has fallen.

It deserves to buried, at a Super Fund site, never to return.

You can hear Simon's comments, on Morning Edition Saturday.

Depending on your outlook on life, the following NY Times piece will either make you depressed, or howl with laughter.

Republican Impeachment Defense Says Trump's Ukraine Pressure Was Apolitical

Gosh.

Jim Jordan and Devin Nunes must have been tripping on acid when they dreamed up this nonsense.

The WaPo, has conducted an analysis of several national polls concerning impeachment proceedings.

From today's WaPo:

Americans Are Split On Impeachment Just Like They Were Before Public Hearings

From the piece; 47% of Americans support impeachment and removal of Trump from office.

43% are opposed to impeachment and removal.

Of Independents, 42% support impeachment, and 44% are opposed.

The piece notes that in key 2020 states, support for impeachment is lower.

Gosh.

Those numbers make a mockery of Trumpsters spin about Americans not caring about impeachment proceedings.

Back to the Peloton, Trumpsters, and spin, spin, spin.

Summary of the report. I only posted the charges with links. Please open the document to read it. It is much shorter than the 300 page report.

House Republicans have now formalized their defense of Trump with the release of a new report as the impeachment process shifts into its next phase, and at the center of it is an effort to make that corrupt motive disappear entirely.

The report’s new argument is that, yes, Trump might have made requests of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to announce “investigations” that would validate Trump’s (invented) theory of Ukrainian interference in the 2016 election and his (fabricated) narrative of corruption on the part of Joe Biden and his son in Ukraine....

Louie Gohmert is just a gift to this process.  His comments are so comical.

Did you all just hear Republican Rep. Biggs from AZ try to debate the meaning and use of the word "us?"

Pathetic. Simply pathetic.

Somebody needs to tell the House GOP members that this isn't the Wizard of Oz.

None of them can click their heels together three times, and make Trump's impeachment go away.

The old man is a sleazy grifter, and his day of reckoning is coming.

Speaker Pelosi seems to be in no hurry, and neither am I.

Because in the meantime, Trump is being ridiculed on the world stage.

Did you all see Kim's latest middle finger gift to Trump?

Those gray horses are beautiful, by the way.
