Somehow I believe this impeachment has begun a weaponization of HOR, this will start to become common place now.

:(

That they are few does not make them unique or special. They are identical taken from the point of view of the psychological aspects of human nature.

That sounds like blind justification without any predicates. “We don’t like how you tie your ties or wear your dresses so we are going to impeach you”.

I don’t think he’s saying that at all. He’s saying you can’t judge an impeachment inquiry based on past impeachments because each one is unique.

There will be more impeachments in the future.

I wouldn’t be surprised if there are, but it’s definitely a rarity.

How is Preet Bharara a traitor?

Who do you think let the banned Russian Veselnistkaya come here as a setup for the Trump Tower mtg?

The State Department. Apparently Bharara tried to PREVENT her from entering...

“Veselnitskaya, however, wasn’t admitted into the U.S. in June 2016 because of her role in the Prevezon case. In fact, then U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara of Manhattan specifically refused Veselnitskaya’s request that the Justice Department authorize her trip via a mechanism known as immigration parole, which allows the attorney general to temporarily suspend immigration requirements on a case-by-case basis...

... Nevertheless, three months later, Veselnitskaya not only attended oral arguments in the Prevezon case but also traveled uptown to meet with Trump campaign officials.

Veselnitskaya obtained a visa from the State Department to enter the country in June 2016, according to a government filing last week. The filing, which came in response to a new request by Veselnitskaya to be allowed into the U.S. for a Nov. 9 hearing in the now-settled Prevezon case, cited a Fox News report from last July.”

“Ms. Veselnitskaya was subsequently paroled into the U.S. several times between 2015 and 2016, ending in February 2016. In June 2016, she was issued a B1/B2 nonimmigrant visa by the U.S. Department of State,” a DHS spokesperson told Fox News Thursday night.

DHS officials also said that it was their agency “in concurrence with the U.S. Attorney's Office of Southern District of New York” which paroled Veselnitskaya into the U.S. Fox News confirmed through court documents that Veselnitskaya initially “applied for a visa to enter the United States, but was denied.”

Preet Bharara was the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York at the time the parole was granted.”

Yeah that says the same thing as what my link says... US Dept of State (DHS) allowed her in in June 2016 AFTER Bharara denied her. He had allowed her in on previous occasions, but not the time she attended the Trump Tower meeting. Why? Because on those previous occasions her client was being deposed. Again, from the link I posted above...

“In fact, then U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara of Manhattan specifically refused Veselnitskaya’s request that the Justice Department authorize her trip via a mechanism known as immigration parole, which allows the attorney general to temporarily suspend immigration requirements on a case-by-case basis.

Bharara’s office has recommended immigration paroles for Veselnitskaya on three occasions, when her client, Katsyv, was being deposed in the U.S. in the Prevezon case. But in March 2016, Bharara’s office said no. In a letter to Prevezon’s U.S. lawyers, prosecutors said such paroles aren’t appropriate for foreign lawyers asking to help U.S. counsel prepare for appellate arguments or to attend appellate proceedings. “Since neither Katsyv nor Veselnitskaya are required to appear as witnesses in person at this stage of proceedings, we do not believe that immigration parole is appropriate,” the since-fired U.S. attorney wrote.”

So you have it backwards. Bharara tried to stop her from coming in when she attended the Trump Tower meeting.

But if letting her in for the meeting was treasonous, how was the meeting itself not?
