House Judiciary Committee Is Investigating Possible Impeachment Of Donald Trump

“We’re crossing a threshold,” one House Democrat said.

The House Judiciary Committee is investigating President Donald Trump to determine whether to file articles of impeachment against him, members of the committee said on Friday.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) confirmed that the committee’s investigation into whether Trump obstructed justice, lied in his written response to special counsel Robert Mueller’s questions, or broke other laws or constitutional provisions, is now on a path that could ultimately lead to his impeachment ― or not.

In a reflection of this new direction, the committee explicitly cited Congress’ impeachment power in a new lawsuit to be filed against the Department of Justice on Saturday to obtain the underlying grand jury evidence presented in Mueller’s investigation.

Pelosi: There was never ‘any hatchet’ to bury with Ocasio-Cortez

Speaker Nancy Pelosi said there was never “any hatchet” to bury with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, praising the high-profile freshman after the two met privately Friday to move past their feud that erupted earlier this month.

Pelosi went on to describe Ocasio-Cortez as “gracious” and downplayed the fight between the two as a family disagreement.

“I don’t think there ever was any hatchet. We’re in a political arena,” Pelosi told reporters in a press conference Friday. “In a family you have your differences but you’re still a family.”

More than 100 killed in Syria air raids in past 10 days, UN says

UN human rights chief condemns ‘apparent international indifference’, says 26 children are among 103 civilians killed.

Air raids by the Syrian government and its allies in the country’s last rebel-held enclave have killed more than 100 civilians in the past 10 days, according to the United Nations, which said the three-month campaign has displaced more than 400,000 people.

The 103 dead from the recent air attacks on schools, hospitals, markets and bakeries included at least 26 children, UN human rights chief Michelle Bachelet said on Friday, adding that the rising toll had been met with “apparent international indifference”.

The targets of the attacks were “civilian objects, and it seems highly unlikely, given the persistent pattern of such attacks, that they are all being hit by accident,” she said in a statement
