Standard 3-1.6 Improper Bias Prohibited 

(a) The prosecutor should not manifest or exercise, by words or conduct, bias or prejudice based upon race, sex, religion, national origin, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, or socioeconomic status. A prosecutor should not use other improper considerations, such as partisan or political or personal considerations, in exercising prosecutorial discretion. A prosecutor should strive to eliminate implicit biases, and act to mitigate any improper bias or prejudice when credibly informed that it exists within the scope of the prosecutor’s authority.

 

How many times has Schiff declared his bias towards Trump?  Would this also be cause for Schiff to recuse himself?

 

I'm thinking that given some of the known, indisputable facts surrounding this "investigation" we could all at least come to a unified consensus on certain points, independent of personal political persuasion.  We are, after all, unified in a call for justice and that justice is performed fairly.  So who here would differ in opinion that Schiff needs to recuse himself and on what basis?

What does a criminal prosecution have to do with an imoeachment hearing.

 

Seriously you are getting way too boring with irrelevant deflections.

Two Giuliani Associates Who Helped Him on Ukraine Arrested on Campaign-Finance Charges

Two Soviet-born donors to a pro- Trump fundraising committee who helped Rudy Giuliani’s efforts to investigate Democrat Joe Biden were arrested late Wednesday on criminal charges of violating campaign finance rules and are expected to appear in court on Thursday, according to people familiar with the matter.

Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, two Florida businessmen, have been under investigation by the U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan, and are expected to appear in federal court in Virginia later on Thursday, the people said. Both men were born in former Soviet republics.

Mr. Giuliani, President Trump’s private lawyer, identified the two men in May as his clients.

Clean up in aisle 3...

 

 

National security officials raised concerns before Trump's Ukraine call: report

 

At least four national security officials raised concerns to a White House lawyer over the Trump administration's attempts to pressure Ukraine before and immediately following President Trump's call with Ukraine's president, The Washington Post reported Thursday. 

 

It was not previously reported that officials raised concerns before the call with President Volodymyr Zelensky that resulted in a whistleblower complaint and impeachment inquiry into Trump. 

 

The Post reported that officials had been concerned by the May ouster of the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch, conspiracy theories pushed by Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani and signs in meetings that Trump wanted information that could hurt Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.

Then blame republicans for changing the rules to allow this to happen.

 

Just because you dont like it doesnt mean they cant do it. 

I hope the Dems just Ignore and don’t play into the Republicans game to prolong the impeachment inquiry. Do it to spite them. They asked for it when they change the rule to disadvantage the Dems. Now things has change in the house and no sympathy for the Trump’s lackey Republicans.

Exactly! And congress comprises not just 235 democrats....we also have 197 republican

members of congress and 3 empty seats.

 

So let's cut the $%&^ and VOTE!

Even the 3 empty chairs would vote against this illegitimate, one-sided and rigged impeachment.

Let’s get the articles of impeachment and then vote.

What a difference a House Majority makes.

 

Almost as big as a Senate majority.

It seems like this issue is becoming a victim of the news cycle. Not much buzz anymore.

Now it's Turkey and the Kurds. Monday it will be something new.

No worries, Trump will stay in the news. he just can't keep his hands to himself and keeps on tweeting.

And if not, he still has Giuliani, and if not that will be news.

 

And in the mean time the impeachment investigation progresses steadily.
