“On the Holmes Front,” with Frank Holmes
The Democrats have tried for months to prove President Donald Trump is guilty of something — anything — worthy of impeachment… but in their desperation, they may have walked straight into a legal trap.
It turns out the liberal Democrat leading the impeachment hearings is accused of demanding his own illegal quid pro quo.
This is separate and distinct from the quid pro quo that former Vice President Joe Biden was videotaped discussing at the Council on Foreign Relations, where he admitted he threatened to deny aid to Ukraine unless it fired a prosecutor investigating his son, Hunter.
This is a different ethical and legal scandal all its own…and the Trump-hating Democrats are at the center of both of them.
Democrats are seething that the only potential legal violation their years-long investigation has turned up was committed by their own presidential hopeful—and the new one, which only The Horn News is reporting, committed by the attorney guiding the Trump-hating House Democrats’ impeachment hearings!
Norm Eisen was the face of the Democrats’ impeachment proceedings, questioning Republicans under oath on national TV.
Eisen founded a pseudo-watchdog group called Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, or CREW, which has raked in millions of dollars from billionaire George Soros. Soros has never been shy about the fact that he wants to impeach Trump.
Eisen also did a stint in the former President Barack Obama’s administration as the “Ethics Czar” — and according to at least one U.S. senator, Eisen outright broke the law while in the White House.
It all began when an inspector general named Gerald Walpin found one of President Obama’s friends knee-deep in dirty dealings with taxpayers’ money.
Obama showered his buddy, then-Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson, with federal grants supposedly to fund a charity Johnson runs.

But Walpin found that the money allegedly went to wash Johnson’s car — even to pay for his political campaign!
The White House knew Walpin was about to blow the lid on their dirty dealing, so they demanded he back off.
Instead, Walpin barreled forward… until Norm Eisen stepped in.
“Norm Eisen attempted to evade the statute” — in other words, break the law — said U.S. Senator Charles Grassley, R-I.A.
Grassley said he “learned that Mr. Eisen personally delivered an ultimatum to Gerald Walpin. He demanded that Inspector General Walpin resign or be terminated within one hour”…sort of like the six hours Biden gave the Ukrainians to fire a certain prosecutor.
That put Eisen in the middle of an illegal act, Grassley said.
“At the time he delivered the ultimatum, no notice had been provided to Congress as is legally required by the Inspector General Reform Act,” the senator said. “The IG Act requires the President to tell Congress the reasons for removal of an inspector general 30 days before taking action.”

Eisen leaned on Walpin to quit or be thrown out on his ear, so no one would hear about Obama’s ethics violations.
The future face of the impeachment hearings “tried to force a quiet resignation and thus remove the Inspector General from office without notice to Congress,” Grassley said on the floor of the Senate.
The only reason Eisen didn’t go to jail, Grassley concluded, is “because Inspector General Walpin did not yield to the pressure, no court had a chance to rule on whether that would be appropriate.”
This is the man harping about Donald Trump’s ethics?
No wonder Eisen had no problem showing a doctored video of President Trump during the nationally televised impeachment hearings—all while lecturing us about telling the truth!
It also might explain why Eisen flipped out when reporter Sharyl Atkisson exposed the partisan players trying to pull a coup against 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Darkness hates the sunlight. Eisen hates reporters. And Democrats hate how the impeachment fiasco has blown up in their face.
When they step away from the cameras, House Democrats cuss out loud about their frustration over their total failure to make anything stick.
They have shifted through an endless pile of excuses to justify impeaching the sitting president.
They tried to pin Russian “collusion” on Donald Trump.
Then they tried to say he abused his office to benefit his own businesses.
Then they tried to say he “obstructed justice” by not participating in their sham impeachment hearing—the one Norm Eisen is presiding over.
Finally, they tried to prove that Trump held up aid by shaking down the president of Ukraine in a “quid pro quo.”
But the only legal or ethical violation is from their Inquisitor-in-Chief, Norm Eisen, and the trail of lies that winds through FISA courts and the Steele dossier… and right back to Obama.
