Pelosi Openly Questions Trump’s Fitness for Office, Suggests Family or Staff ‘Intervention’

1 Share
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi openly questioned President Donald Trump’s fitness for office Thursday, suggesting a family or staff “intervention” after a dramatic blow-up at a White House meeting the previous day.
Both the Republican president and Democratic leaders dug in a day after Trump stalked out of the Cabinet Room demanding an end to congressional investigations before he would work with Congress on crumbling U.S. infrastructure and other matters. By Thursday as Congress prepared to recess for the Memorial Day break, both sides were questioning each other’s stability, with the president insisting on Twitter that he was calm when he left the White House meeting that was to focus on infrastructure spending.
Pelosi said Trump has established a pattern of unpredictability and at one point even joked about the Constitution’s provision laying out the procedure for replacing a president.
“I wish that his family or his administration or his staff would have an intervention for the good of the country,” Pelosi said at her weekly news conference, adding again that she prays for him and the nation.
“Maybe he wants to take a leave of absence,” she said. Asked whether she’s concerned about Trump’s well-being, she replied, “I am.”
She also said the White House is “crying out” for the Democrats to launch impeachment hearings — the idea being that such a move would help him politically.
This came after White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said on CNN that it was “lunacy” and “insane” for Democrats to think Pelosi could accuse Trump of a “cover-up,” as she did just before the meeting Wednesday.
“It’s very hard to have a meeting where you accuse the president of the United States of a crime and an hour later show up and act as if nothing has happened,” Sanders told reporters outside the White House.
Hanging over the increasingly personal exchanges is a drumbeat among about two dozen Democrats and one Republican to launch impeachment hearings against Trump based on details in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report that Trump repeatedly tried to block the investigation. Pelosi has resisted, preferring a methodical process by which Congress investigates and lays out the facts on the question of obstruction of justice. But she’s been clear this week that any such finding could be worthy of a formal indictment by the House — that is, impeachment.
It also comes as Pelosi is balancing the calls for impeachment with the restraint of members from divided districts who helped flip the House to Democratic control and now face tough re-elections 2020.
Pelosi, the second in line to the presidency, said she thinks Trump’s actions Wednesday were part of his skill at distraction. But she also suggested that he’s unpredictable.
“Sometimes when we’re talking to him he agrees,” she said, only to change his mind. “He says he’s in charge and he may be.”
She has been running out a string of Trump insults since the meeting on Wednesday.
“For some reason, maybe it was lack of confidence on his part … he took a pass, and it just makes me wonder why he did that,” she told reporters back on Capitol Hill. “In any event I pray for the president of the United States.”
“Nancy, thank you so much for your prayers, I know you truly mean it!” Trump tweeted from the White House.
But by Thursday, the White House’s talking points turned to blaming Democrats for the apparent impasse on one of the few issues that have broad bipartisan public support.
Repeatedly pressed on why the president seemed unwilling to multitask and work on legislation as other presidents under investigation have done, Sanders maintained, “I think the Democrats have shown that they’re not capable of doing anything else.”
In fact, the Democratic-controlled House has passed several bills on issues including firearms background checks, prescription drugs and campaign finance reforms — though they were dead on arrival in the GOP-controlled Senate.
Sanders also insisted that Trump’s walk-out Wednesday wasn’t planned before Pelosi’s comments and that the White House placard that appeared on Trump’s lectern as he denounced Democrats moments later had been printed “weeks ago.” Asked why Trump couldn’t work with Democrats after Pelosi’s comments because he felt insulted, Sanders said, “The president’s feelings weren’t hurt. She accused him of a crime. Let that sink in.”
Despite Trump’s comments Wednesday about ceasing work with Democrats until investigations end, Sanders said “Staff-level conversations continue” on raising the U.S. debt limit, a critical piece of legislation that will need to be taken up in the coming months.

NSA Committee of Inquiry: Former BND Chief Uhrlau Can not Remember

1 Share

Unfortunately, ex-BND chief Uhrlau can not remember

Overseeing a secret service is not an easy job. However, it gets a little heavier if the intelligence agents always start to mumble or even shut up to explain what they are doing. For the Federal Intelligence Service (BND) and the Federal Chancellery, this seems to have been the case for many years.
Ernst Uhrlau was invited on Thursday for the second time as a witness before the NSA committee of the Bundestag. Uhrlau was the department head of the Federal Chancellery responsible for intelligence services and later became chief of the BND. He should shed light on several important and hitherto unanswered questions. For example, what the Federal Chancellery, after all, the competent supervisory authority, said about the eavesdropping of the BND and the NSA at the US Internet node of the telecom.
The operation had the internal name Eikonal and is the core of the BND affair that has been discussed for two years. From 2003 to 2008, the BND at the Internet node Frankfurt, Germany, millions of phone calls and mails and shared his knowledge with the NSA . Among other things, the committee wants to determine, among other things, what and what the Federal Chancellery knew - and who bore the political responsibility for the illegal action.
Uhrlau responded to the many questions of the deputies verbatim. The process was not clearer. In particular, it is about the so-called carte blanche: The Telekom had reservations about the operation Eikonal. The company was afraid of violating laws and refused to let agents go. The telecom demanded that you guarantee her that everything went right. In 2003, Uhrlau wrote a letter in his capacity as head of department at the Federal Chancellery. But letter is exaggerated, there were only a few and very general lines: "The enlightenment approach planned by the Federal Intelligence Service in your company is from the point of view in accordance with applicable law."
Central question now: Was the letter approved by the head of the Chancellery, then Frank-Walter Steinmeier (SPD)? Had he read it? Did he even know about it?
Unfortunately, the witness could not answer this question. At the time, Uhrlau had signed the letter, not Steinmeier himself. Why? Uhrlau did not know that anymore. He also could not remember when and how he could have informed his superior, the politically responsible Chancellery minister, about the letter. He merely repeated the sentence he had already said in his first interrogation that Steinmeier had been "involved." How exactly? Uhrlau could not say it. "Would you have signed the license to Telekom without Steinmeier's knowledge?" Asked the head of the union, Nina Warken. "I think that's out of the question." Whether Steinmeier was informed before or after sending the charter? No memory. Was the letter his idea or Steinmeier's? "

Virtually no files received

Perhaps the memory of the 69-year-old Uhrlau is no longer the best. But perhaps the political controllers of the German foreign intelligence service have to put together much of what they are supposed to control. Although they are somehow informed, but apparently not exactly what happens next - that was at least the impression according to the testimony.
A detail on the side: The committee had received virtually no files that show how the charter was created. The committee chairman Patrick Sensburg complained at the meeting. One can not understand the genesis of the process. That's no coincidence. For the BND at that time had demanded from the Federal Chancellery to send all papers and files to the BND for charter. Again, the service told its master to relinquish all files about a very delicate process? And he did it? How should control be possible? Uhrlau, who served for a long time in both authorities, could not comment on that.
The problem of scrutiny was also evident in a second key issue in the Committee's investigation: the service is accused of having deceived the G10 Commission. This commission of the Bundestag may authorize secret operations if there is a danger that the communication of Germans overheard and then the Article 10 of the Constitution is limited. The BND allowed her to approve only a few keywords with which he wanted to search the internet for terrorists or weapons smugglers. But then he did not specifically search these terms on the net, but used them as a justification to store all the data he could find in Internet cables.

Led behind the spruce?

According to law, the BND is allowed to listen in on a maximum of 20 percent of telecommunications between Germany and abroad and search it according to terms approved by the Commission. Communication, which is only conducted between foreign countries and foreign countries, ie without German participation, he may completely listen to. The service calls this the "routine traffic". But he now invented a "virtual foreign country" to listen to international communication that runs at the hub in Frankfurt on German territory and thus technically comes from abroad to Germany. For the Telekom to play along, he just got the license from the Chancellery - and pro forma a G-10 permit.
Uhrlau should clarify whether the G-10 commission should be "behind the spruce", as the green chairman Konstantin von Notz always calls. Quotation Uhrlau: "The Commission approves search terms, which are the filters to use, if there are hits, fundamental rights holders to use this information too, all that is not through the filter is routine traffic and this routine traffic is used That has always been present to the Commission in the meetings. "
This means that the Commission could have put it all together that the BND, even on German soil, for the first time divulged everything. Clearly, the service apparently never has it to the controllers. It was "in principle known to the G-10 Commission," said Uhrlau. He did not want to see a lie or a trick in it. "Knowingly trying to deceive the G-10 Commission was not the intention." The question of whether the Chancellery had decided to use such a G-10 permit as a door opener for all data from the cable, could not answer Uhrlau: "I do not know."

No memory

Members of the G10 commission, on the other hand, had said in the commission of inquiry that they had been well deceived. They would never have approved if they knew that it was not about individual terms, but about entire power cord on German soil. It is also known from internal BND files that it was also clear to the BND that he actually needed a new law in order to be able to record the data, but that he saw no chance to bring such a law through the Bundestag .
Today, all parliamentary groups in the Bundestag agree that there is no legal basis for this scavenging of "routine traffic" that the BND should never have done so.
Who decided the door opener trick then, which elected representative took over the responsibility for it? Uhrlau could not help with the clarification. He has the question afterwards with an interesting passive construction: "The need to connect to the cable in Frankfurt has certainly been discussed with the head of the Federal Chancellery." When, how, exactly? No memory.

Justice, House intelligence panel strike a deal for Mueller materials

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., at a Capitol Hill ceremony in January, 2019.

Panel, Justice strike deal on Mueller report - News - The Columbus Dispatch

1 Share
WASHINGTON — At least for now, the House Intelligence Committee will not enforce a subpoena against Attorney General William Barr, after the Justice Department agreed at the 11th hour to produce the redacted material and underlying information from special counsel Robert Mueller’s report that the panel sought — albeit more slowly than it wanted.
Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., the committee’s chairman, announced the deal in a statement Wednesday morning. He warned that the subpoena “will remain in effect and will be enforced should the Department fail to comply with the full document request.”
Schiff added that he expects the “initial production” of providing the committee with 12 categories of counterintelligence and foreign intelligence material from Mueller’s probe of election interference by Russia will “be completed by the end of next week.”
The deal is a rare instance of detente between House Democrats and Justice Department leaders, who remain bitterly at odds over the administration’s resistance to congressional requests for documents and witnesses. But just hours after the agreement was announced, President Donald Trump declared that he would not work with congressional Democrats on any legislative ventures so long as investigations of his campaign, finances and foreign ties continue.
It was not clear if the president’s declaration jeopardizes the deal the House Intelligence Committee struck with the Justice Department.
In a letter Tuesday to Schiff, Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd wrote that “the Department is willing to move forward with efforts to accommodate the Committee’s legitimate interests” to view the items it requested.” But Boyd argued that the Justice Department would need more time to produce them, and he made the counteroffer contingent on the committee’s promise “that it will not pursue any vote on an ‘enforcement action,’ either on May 22, or while such good-faith accommodation measures continue.”
“To be clear should the Committee take the precipitous and unnecessary action of recommending a contempt finding or other enforcement action against the attorney general, then the Department will not likely be able to continue to work with the Committee to accommodate its interest in these materials,” Boyd wrote.
Holding off on the subpoena puts Schiff’s committee somewhat at odds with the rest of the House Democratic conference, where members have been agitating for impeachment proceedings against the president as other panels’ efforts to secure materials and witnesses are met with recalcitrance from the administration.
Schiff’s decision to accept the Justice Department’s efforts to accommodate his requests provides House Speaker Nancy Pelosi with a potential off-ramp to avoid calls for impeachment, at least in the near future.
Both the House Intelligence and Judiciary committees have been making the case to Barr that they should be able to view the full contents of Mueller’s report, plus certain underlying materials. Barr has argued that it would be illegal for him to deliver the full redacted materials to the Judiciary Committee as requested, because it would require releasing grand jury information that cannot be disclosed without a court order. He has rejected House Democrats’ entreaties to join them in making an appeal to a judge to release those materials.
But Schiff made his case for seeing the same materials on the grounds that the Mueller report deals with counterintelligence matters — and the Intelligence Committee has a legal right to view materials pertaining to counterintelligence, whether they originated with a grand jury or not. Rep. Devin Nunes, Calif., the committee’s top Republican, had joined Schiff in letters to Barr making the case for such access, although he did not sign on to the eventual subpoena that Schiff issued earlier this month.
“The Department has repeatedly acknowledged the Committee’s legitimate oversight interest in these materials,” Schiff said in a statement Wednesday. “I look forward to, and expect, continued compliance by the Department so we can do our vital oversight work.”
