"Before thoughts of impeachment, let Americans hear everything: "Even though a strong case for impeachment presently exists, however, it is more wisely undertaken after a full catalog of Mr. Trump’s conduct has been laid out in detail for Americans to consider." - Jeff Robbins - Boston Herald - 6:42 AM 1/1/2019


Before thoughts of impeachment, let Americans hear everything

1 Share
As Democrats prepare to take control of the House of Representatives, and the oversight committees they will chair try to keep their list of subpoenas for Trump administration officials under 10,000, they gaze down Pennsylvania Avenue at a White House so target-rich as to bring “fish in a barrel” very much to mind.
After only two years in office, the competition for the most dishonest administration in American history would appear to be Donald Trump’s to lose. His has proven to be the Hindenburg of American presidencies, and for incoming committee chairs faced with a surplus of proper, necessary subjects of congressional investigation, prioritizing those investigations will be daunting.
For many Democrats, to impeach or not impeach is the question. The president’s defenders insist that there are no constitutionally mandated “high crimes (or) misdemeanors.” Alan Dershowitz, for instance, justly esteemed for the creativity he brings to the noble profession of criminal defense, professes that he “cannot see” any basis for impeachment. This makes one wonder in what direction he is looking. The president’s own Justice Department alleges in the name of the United States of America in a federal court that he ordered his lawyer to commit federal crimes for candidate Trump’s benefit — crimes whose very purpose was to enable Trump to gain the presidency. Trump’s lawyer has admitted as much.
The U.S. government’s allegation that its president committed felonies in order to win the election is backed up by the admissions of others, as well as tape recordings of Trump himself. That Trump’s defenders “cannot see” impeachable offenses only means that they are prepared to risk their reputations and legacies spinning for someone who sells solid gold watches for a dollar.
Even though a strong case for impeachment presently exists, however, it is more wisely undertaken after a full catalog of Mr. Trump’s conduct has been laid out in detail for Americans to consider. 
A complete record is important for posterity’s sake, and also because this most consequential of steps is best initiated with at least some bipartisan support, if not from Republicans in Congress, then at least from independents and a respectable fraction of Republican voters. The temptation to immediately launch impeachment proceedings should yield to permitting the ongoing accumulation of evidence that our president is unfit for the presidency to continue.
This will come in two forms: the special counsel’s report, built on grand jury testimony, subpoenaed documents and other proof, and the congressional investigations, which will begin only hours from now. Both will shed a great deal of light on matters that the president and his team have worked hard to keep in the dark. One is the by now obvious collusion between Trump, his family and his campaign and Russia, their aim a common one: electing Donald Trump president. This collaboration is so plain at this point that the cry “No Collusion!” has morphed into “Collusion Isn’t a Crime!” It may or may not be. But it is a historic disgrace, and it is one likely to have carried with it lying to Congress, to grand juries and to FBI agents, all of which certainly are crimes.
Another is Trump and his team’s equally obvious effort to obstruct an investigation into whether or not they had committed crimes. Then there is the fetid swamp that is Trump’s executive branch, brought to you by the guy who actually told Americans that he was a swamp-drainer. There are the millions in corporate and foreign donations to the Trump inauguration that have gone unaccounted for. And the president’s tax returns, withheld despite false promises to release them, almost certainly because they reflect conflicts of interest and undisclosed foreign influence.
These are but some of the areas about which we are likely to learn a great deal very shortly. It is better that Americans learn it, and that history records it, than that the gun be jumped on impeachment.

Israeli minister dismisses Trump peace plan as 'waste of time' | World news

1 Share
A senior Israeli minister has said Donald Trump’s long-awaited Middle East peace plan would be a “waste of time”.
“The gap between the Palestinians and the Israelis is much too big to be bridged,” the justice minister, Ayelet Shaked, said at a conference organised by the Jerusalem Post newspaper.
“I think, personally, it’s a waste of time,” she said, speaking in English. “Although I want peace more than anyone else, I think I am just more realistic, and I know that in the current future it is impossible,” she said. “But let’s wait and see what they [the US] will offer.”
Asked if she would tell the US president not to “waste his time with this”, she replied: “Definitely.”
Her statement could vex Trump, who has previously publicised his yet-to-be-released plan as the “deal of the century” and tasked his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, to draft the agreement.
While Washington has focused on Palestinian objections to its peacemaking efforts, there is also little enthusiasm to restart peace talks among the Israeli public and influential figures in government.
poll last month found 73% of Israelis did not believe negotiations would lead to peace. Theprime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, has also said he does not see any urgency in having the plan released.
Shaked is a senior cabinet minister in Netanyahu’s coalition government and a member of the rightwing Jewish Home party, a religious-nationalist group that rejects any notion of a creating an independent Palestinian country.

Trump said in late September that he expected the plan, two years in the making, to be announced within four months, although diplomats in Jerusalem expect delays.
Meanwhile, the Palestinian leadership has rejected the US’s traditional role as a mediator following Trump’s decision in December to move the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and declare the city the country’s capital.
Jerusalem is a critical issue in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Palestinians claim East Jerusalem as the capital of any future state, while Israel captured that part of the city from Jordanian forces in 1967 and have since occupied it, claiming all of the holy city as the “undivided” capital.
US punitive measures against Palestinians have also added vitriol and lessened Washington’s standing.
This year, Trump cut hundreds of millions of dollars in humanitarian aid, shuttered Palestinian diplomatic offices in Washington, and closed a US consulate that serves the occupied West Bank and Gaza.
Palestinians accuse Trump of siding with Israel on the core issues of the decades-old conflict and see the team drafting the plan as staunchly pro-Israel.
Jason Greenblatt, a former chief legal officer at the Trump Organization and now special representative for international negotiations, has said the plan would “be heavily focused on Israeli security needs” while remaining “fair to the Palestinians”.
Another key figure, David Friedman, a former Trump bankruptcy lawyer and now the US ambassador to Israel, is an outspoken supporter of Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank, which are considered illegal by most world powers.
Palestinians have limited self-rule in the West Bank. Israel controls most of the territory while expanding settlements, which Palestinians and their supporters say greatly complicate efforts to achieve a two-state peace plan.

Why Trump’s Middle East peace plan is just a sideshow | US news

1 Share
After two years of drum-rolling, Donald Trump’s “ultimate deal” for Israelis and Palestinians is about to enter what its architects claim is the pre-launch phase.
The US president has said the peace plan drawn up by his team – two former personal lawyers and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner – will be ready to unveil by the end of January.
Yet despite the anticipation surrounding Trump’s proposals for resolving one of the world’s most intractable conflicts, a more crucial plan for the region is already being implemented on the ground: an attempt to strengthen Israel’s hand while weakening that of the Palestinians.
One by one, the US has implemented the key demands of Israel’s hardline rightwing lobby, drastically slashing humanitarian aid to the Palestinians, declaring the contested city of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, shuttering Palestinian diplomatic offices in Washington, and closing its own consulate that serves the occupied West Bank and Gaza.

For Palestinians – and many Israelis – a peace deal is a sideshow. The bigger issue, which does not depend on peace, is the implementation of Israel’s wishes by the most accommodating US administration in its history.
Trump has repeatedly said the measures are intended to force Palestinian leaders – who reject him outright as a biased mediator – into a peace effort. Trump has also said Israel will have to “pay a price” for peace, although has not specified what that would be.
Palestinian leaders have responded by saying there is no genuine plan for a just solution. “It’s really a lie,” said Hanan Ashrawi, a senior Palestinian politician. “Everybody is working on this fictitious concept. [The US] became partners with Israel and they are implementing Israeli policies. All we see are unilateral measures by the US and by Israel … The reality on the ground is now being engineered.”
A state department official said a “high priority” has been placed on achieving a comprehensive deal, but it would be “difficult”. While they would not comment on details of the plan, which is still being drafted, a few aspects are becoming clearer.
First, unlike previous US-led efforts in which it was up to the Israelis and the Palestinians to decide the details, the Trump version will likely be much more specific and prescriptive. In essence, it will be a series of suggestions that detractors say will be heavily focused on Israeli demands based on the political views of its authors.
For example, Jason Greenblatt, who is leading Trump’s team after his promotion to government from chief legal officer at the Trump Organization, has broken US precedent to say Israeli settlement-building in the occupied West Bank – illegal under international law – is not an obstacle to peace.
The US ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, a bankruptcy lawyer who also worked for Trump’s company, has been even more vocal in his support of Israeli settlement construction, and even the annexation of Palestinian territory.
Second, the US will only go so far in pushing the two sides to accept the deal, meaning the plan is liable to collapse. “The parties will need to decide if they think the plan works for them and will make their lives better,” Greenblatt has said. “The parties are the only ones who can make these compromises.”
Critics say it is increasingly apparent that those drafting the plan might not even be betting on its success to achieve their goals, which are already being enforced on the ground.
Trump’s team will know that from Israel’s perspective there is very little appetite for peace compared with the past. An August poll found only 9% of Israelis wanted their government to prioritise reaching a deal with the Palestinians in 2019.
Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, who is acutely aware of public sentiment as an election approaches, has said he does not see “any urgency” on Trump revealing his peace plan. His formerdefence minister Avigdor Lieberman was even clearer when asked about a peace deal that could result in Palestinian self-rule: “I don’t care about a Palestinian state,” he said. The justice minister, Ayelet Shaked, said she would tell Trump the plan was “a waste of time”.
A European diplomat in Jerusalem told the Guardian on condition of anonymity that it was “distinctly possible that we could get to the end of Trump’s presidency with no [peace] proposals”.
With few predicting success, Palestinians are presented with two options: accepting a plan drafted by the least receptive US administration to their cause since peace efforts began, or continuing to face punitive measures. If the plan is rejected out of hand, the status quo – in which Israel entrenches its occupation of the West Bank and continues to enforce a blockade on Gaza – will remain.
However, US officials insist that there are genuine peace efforts. The three main architects – Greenblatt, Friedman and Jared Kushner – all come from a business background and their position has been to treat the conflict like a deal. With economic incentives they hope to convince a side that has historically prioritised issues of principle, such as the right of refugees to return to their homes or to call Jerusalem their capital.
“There is no reason the Palestinians (in both the West Bank and Gaza) can’t enjoy economic success and integrate into a thriving regional economy – if they let us help,” the trio wrote in a Washington Post op-ed in July.
Trump also sees any negotiations as transactional, saying he has to force the Palestinians to reach an agreement by weakening their hand through aid cuts. The president referred to his Jerusalem declaration as a bargaining “chip” taken away from the Palestinians.
In a message sent a year ago to other senior officials on cutting funding to the UN agency for Palestinian refugees, UNRWA, Kushner wrote in internal emails obtained by Foreign Policy: “Our goal can’t be to keep things stable and as they are … Sometimes you have to strategically risk breaking things in order to get there.”
Shortly after Greenblatt was appointed last year, Tania Hary, the executive director at Gisha, an Israeli non-profit that promotes the freedom of movement of Palestinians, said her office started receiving calls from his team asking questions on the economy in Gaza, which has been kept under an Israel blockade for a decade.
Greenblatt does not cite the blockade as a reason for the dire humanitarian situation in Gaza, but focuses blame on its rulers, Hamas, and the West Bank-based Palestinian Authority, which has blocked funding to the enclave.
“My impression at the time was that I was being approached by business-minded people who thought they could solve a problem from a business perspective,” Hary said.
“They recognised that there were obstacles to growth that included restrictions on movement and access,” she said, adding that her advice was that Gaza’s problems cannot be solved by keeping it isolated from the West Bank and Israel.
But then they stopped calling. “I’m not sure if that [message] carried through.”

The top Democrats set to make Trump's life miserable in 2019 | US news

1 Share
The midterm elections brought an end to a period of one-party rule in Washington. In January, Donald Trump will face a newly empowered House Democratic majority eager to take on his administration.
The incoming Democratic committee chairs have vowed rigorous oversight of Trump, his family and his administration. Armed with committee gavels, they will have the power and resources to pursue investigations, issue subpoenas and compel testimony.
Trump in response has threatened to adopt a “warlike” posture, signaling a tumultuous end to an already-volatile first term.
Here are the men and women most likely to torment the president.

Elijah Cummings

Incoming chair of the House committee on oversight and government reform
As the ranking Democrat on the committee, Cummings has sat through his share of Republican-led investigations into the Obama administration. Now the outspoken 67-year-old will wield one of the most powerful gavels in Washington.
The son of two former sharecroppers who moved from the south, Cummings was born and raised in Baltimore, a city he now represents in Congress. He practiced law and served for 14 years in the Maryland house of delegates before being elected to Congress in 1996.
In January, Cummings will become one of the Democrats’ chief investigators into the Trump administration.
He describes his approach as having “two tracks”. One track will scrutinize the executive branch, including whether Trump has profited from the presidency; a decision to add a citizenship question to the US census; and hush payments made to women with whom Trump allegedly had affairs. A second track will focus on reforms such as overhauling the US postal service and lowering prescription drug prices.
Cummings has been wary of calls to impeach Trump. Rather than issuing subpoenas “like somebody’s handing out candy on Halloween”, the Democrat says he prefers a more judicious approach.
“I’m not looking for retribution,” Cummings told ABC News. “Life is too short.”

Adam Schiff

Incoming chair of the House permanent select committee on intelligence
Schiff is one of Trump’s most combative political opponents.
Mocked by the president as “Liddle Adam Schiff” – a barb that was recently modified to “Little Adam Schitt” – the California Democrat was at the center of the House’s deeply partisan investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Schiff began his career as a prosecutor with the Los Angeles division of the US attorney’s office in 1987. He gained prominence by prosecuting a case against the first FBI agent to be indicted for espionage against the United States. (The agent was convicted of passing classified information to the Soviet Union for money.) He was elected to Congress in 2000 after serving in the California state senate.
Schiff, 58, is a leading attack dog on the Russia investigation and obstruction of justice.
The Democrat has said he will examine whether Russia has financial leverage over the president through its investments in Trump’s business empire, something Trump says would “cross a red line”.
Schiff recently said: “If the president’s business is trying to curry favor with the Kremlin, we can’t ignore that.”
The congressman has also signaled that he will seek more information about whether Trump sought to obstruct the FBI’s investigation into the president’s dealings with Moscow when he fired its director James Comey. He also hasn’t ruled out calling Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr, to testify in a public hearing.

Jerrold Nadler

Incoming chair of the House judiciary committee
The New York Democrat, universally known as “Jerry”, will chair the House judiciary committee, which has jurisdiction over key policy areas but will be watched closely for its role in any impeachment proceedings.
Nadler’s political career began in 1977 as a New York assemblyman while he was still attending Fordham Law School. He was elected to Congress in 1992, and represents Manhattan’s Upper West Side, Wall Street and parts of Brooklyn.

Long before Trump came to Washington, he and Nadler sparred over a real estate venture proposed by Trump that Nadler forcefully opposed. In his book The America We Deserve, Trump later described Nadler as “one of the most egregious hacks in contemporary politics”.
Known as a steady hand, Nadler had been careful about broaching the topic of impeachment, dismissing such discussions as “premature”. However, in December Nadler said court filings stating that Trump directed Cohen to pay hush money “would be impeachable offenses”.
Nadler, 71, has outlined an expansive list of subjects his committee will scrutinize, including Russian interference in the 2016 election; the policy on separating immigrant families at the southern border; the justice department’s failure to defend the Affordable Care Act; the allegations of sexual misconduct and perjury by the supreme court justice Brett Kavanaugh; a rise in antisemitic and hate crime incidents since Trump’s election, and the appointment of acting US attorney general Matthew Whitaker after the forced resignation of Jeff Sessions.

Maxine Waters

Incoming chair of the House financial services committee
Waters, or “Auntie Maxine” as she is affectionately known by her supporters in the anti-Trump “resistance” movement, is a frequent target of the president.
Insulted by Trump as “crazy” and an “extraordinarily low IQ person”, the 80-year-old Democrat from California has earned her hard-charging reputation by fighting fire with fire. She has called Trump an “immoral, indecent, & inhumane thug” who “loves Putin” and “genuflects for Kim Jong-un”.
The verbal volleys may only get worse as she assumes the top spot on the House financial services committee next year.
Waters has consistently demanded information about Trump’s private bank dealings and possible connections to Russia. As chairwoman, she will have the power to demand answers from Trump’s biggest lender, Deutsche Bank.
She could also increase scrutiny on the nation’s biggest banks and Wall Street. Waters has called for more regulation of banks and could use her power to slow efforts by the Trump administration to roll back regulations on the financial institutions.

Waters was one of the first Democrats in Washington to call for the president’s impeachment.
She will be the first woman to chair the financial services committee.

Richard Neal

Incoming chair of the House ways and means committee
As chairman of the powerful tax-writing committee, the long-serving Massachusetts Democrat is preparing to lead the fight for the release of Trump’s tax returns.
Neal told the Washington Post that he will start by requesting Trump voluntarily release his tax returns.
In the likely event Trump does not acquiesce, Neal, 69, says he will file a legal request with the treasury department to release the returns to a select group of lawmakers on Capitol Hill. Neal expects the effort will ultimately end up in federal court.
Neal will also use his perch to defend social security, Medicare and Medicaid, federal programs that have personal resonance with him. His parents died when he was young, and Neal and his sisters relied on social security survivor benefit checks.
He was elected to Congress in 1988 after serving as a city councilor and mayor of Springfield. He became the ranking Democrat on the committee in 2016.
An outspoken opponent of the Republican tax overhaul, Neal has said he also plans to convene hearings on tax policy as well as healthcare and trade.

Could Trump's Relationship With Deutsche Bank Lead To Money Laundering Charges? Congress May Conduct Parallel Probe To Mueller Investigation

1 Share
Rep. Adam Schiff of California, the presumed incoming chair of the House Intelligence Committee, is looking into investigating President Donald Trump's business records with Deutsche Bank, recently telling Jeffrey Toobin of the New Yorker that there might be potential money laundering charges.
“We are going to be looking at the issue of possible money laundering by the Trump Organization, and Deutsche Bank is one obvious place to start,” Schiff told Toobin.
The German multinational bank has been the subject of much controversy over the years. Deutsche Bank's headquarters on Nov. 29 were raided by prosecutors in a money laundering investigation in connection with the Panama Papers. The raid came after the bank was fined in January 2017 for $630 million by U.S. and U.K. regulators in connection with a $10 billion Russian money laundering scheme. In 2015, Deutsche Bank pled guilty in the U.S. to wire fraud for its role in the 2012 Libor scandal and paid $2.5 billion in fines.
Troubles that follow Deutsche may also follow Trump, as it has widely been reported that Deutsche was the only bank willing to give Trump loans in the late 1990s — a time when most banks would not lend to Trump after his many failed business ventures. Trump’s financial disclosures show he has as much as $364 million in loans from the bank. The Wall Street Journal in March 2016 reported that Trump and his companies had received at least $2.5 billion in loans from Deutsche Bank and co-lenders since 1998.
Deutsche Bank also has had a relationship with others close to Trump. Special counsel Robert Mueller reportedly subpoenaed Deutsche Bank for information on former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who in August was convicted in the Eastern District of Virginia on eight counts related to tax and bank fraud. In December 2017, prosecutors in the U.S. attorney’s office for the Eastern District of New York reportedly subpoenaed Deutsche Bank for records related to the family of Trump's son-in-law and White House adviser Jared Kushner.
Schiff isn't the only lawmaker on Capitol Hill interested in Deutsche Bank. Democratic Sens. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Chris Van Hollen of Maryland issued a statement on Dec. 13 to Republican Sen. Mike Crapo of Idaho, chair of the Senate Banking Committee, to investigate Deutsche Bank's compliance controls.
The statement reads: "Over the past several years, Deutsche Bank has been the subject of numerous enforcement actions in the in the United States and abroad, and just weeks ago the bank's head office and other locations in Frankfurt were raided by 170 police officers and tax investigators as part of a money laundering probe. Given the Committee’s jurisdiction over banking regulatory enforcement, Deutsche Bank’s history of regulatory problems, and the recent allegations of money laundering that resulted in the recent raid conducted by German law enforcement, we request that the Banking Committee undertake an investigation into Deutsche Bank and its compliance with the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) and Anti Money Laundering (AML) regulations."
Rep. Maxine Waters of California, who has been nominated to chair the House Committee on Financial Services, is also expected to investigate Deutsche Bank's ties to Russia.
Deutsche Bank responded that it hasn't been accused of wrongdoing and is cooperating with authorities.
"Deutsche Bank takes its legal obligations seriously and remains committed to cooperating with authorized investigations," said Deutsche Bank spokesman Troy Gravitt in a statement. "Our recent record of cooperating with such investigations has been widely recognized by regulators. We intend to keep working in this spirit."
An International Business Times investigation detailed the potential conflict of interest between the Trump administration and Deutsche Bank after the Trump administration in January waived part of the punishment for Deutsche Bank and four other megabanks, whose affiliates were convicted and fined from the Libor scandal. People walk past a Berlin branch of Deutsche Bank on Feb. 9, 2016. Photo: Sean Gallup/Getty Images
