Jill Wine-Banks is living in the past

Jill Wine-Banks is living in the past

For those who may not know her, Jill Wine-Banks was a young flashy attorney working on the Nixon Impeachment almost 50 years ago.  She was known by her then married name of Jill Wine-Volner.  Her only observable activity was to question Nixon’s secretary Rose Mary Woods.  While Wine-Volner did not contribute a lot in terms of the legal issues and strategies, she gained considerable notoriety as the “mini-skirted prosecutor” among a herd of old grey-haired men.

Wine-Banks was the first woman to become executive director of the American Bar Association – but it did not turn out well.  She was accused of rigging a case against a dog owner, one-time ABA President Eugene Thomas said that Wine-Banks “does not understand the use of power and lacks a sense of decorum and propriety in professional matters” and should be booted from the ABA.  Whether she was booted or resigned is immaterial.  She departed the ABA.

Following Nixon’s resignation, Wine-Volner slipped into media oblivion for the better part of five decades – that is until Jill Wine-BANKS emerged as one of the #NeverTrump Resistance Movement’s talking heads at the onset of the impeachment rampage following the 2016 presidential election.

Wine-Banks has been resurrected to press prominence as a regular “prosecutor” on the anti-Trump propaganda networks.  Having been involved in the impeachment of one Republican President, the folks at the elitist east coast media – the Big Seven (ABC, CBS. NBC, MSNBC CNN New York Times and Washington Post) – see her as an expert in prosecuting presidents.  At 76-years- old, however, she does not add the same sex appeal.

For the most part, her appearances – and I have viewed many of them – are agonizingly repetitious.  She follows the current Democrat media script – which, itself, is agonizingly repetitious – and talks about the past as if it has relevance.

Her main contribution is to compare how they did things way back then with what is going on Today.  In that, Wine-Banks comes across more as a biased historian than a legal expert – or even just an old lady reminiscing about past glories.

As evidence of just how stuck in the past Wine-Banks appears to be, she recently proposed a scenario in which Vice President Pence would be impeached first – or forced to resign.  Trump would then have the opportunity to appoint a successor to be confirmed by the Republican Senate.  THEN, the Congress would impeach and convict Trump and make whoever the President – and that whoever could then name yet another Vice President.

If that sounds insanely ridiculous, Wine-Banks is proposing to repeat the past.  Many may be unaware that before Nixon resigned, it was important to prevent Vice President Spiro Agnew from becoming President.  He was mired in a scandal of his own that had nothing to do with Watergate.  Agnew resigned and Nixon nominated House Minority Leader Gerald Ford as Vice President – and the Senate consented.  Ford then named former New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller as his Vice President.  For the first time in American history, we had two people holding the highest offices in the land to which neither had been elected to either of them.

That is what Wine-Banks remembers in her reverie – and that is what she proposes for today.  It is such a nutty idea that one must assume she is living off her begone days of personal glory.

Wine-Banks is careful not to propose the impeachment of both Trump and Pence – which some on the radical fringe are calling for – because that would make Speaker Nancy Pelosi the President according to the order of succession.  That would expose the coup that has been unrolling since Inauguration Day 2017.

Watching Wine-Banks emote on television is a bit like hearing grandma fondly telling stories of her early days – just not as charming.

So, there ‘tis.

    I am now wondering if one or more of the impeachment “supporting cast”, ie: Soros, Bloomberg, et. al., have whispered “We’ll make you President” in Pelosi’s ear to get her to acquiesce to impeachment. Makes one start to wonder.
