Reading Time: 28 minutes The rambling, stream-of-consciousness, more-than-hourlong “speech” touched on the usual grievances: Russia, Mueller, witch hunts, impeachment. “It was all bullshit,” the president said in the East Room of the White House.
Reading Time: < 1 minute Here are some of the key moments from Trump’s trial.
Reading Time: 13 minutes One hundred senators will soon convene to make the solemn decision about whether impeached President Donald Trump should be removed from office for having committed high crimes and misdemeanors.
At least, that’s the theory.
Reading Time: < 1 minute The hearing is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. ET. Watch live in the video player.
The hearing by the Judiciary comes after the House Intelligence Committee held 5 days of public impeachment hearings late last month.
Reading Time: 6 minutes Mass popular resistance helped check Trump before and has been instrumental to removing corrupt leaders abroad. If Democrats are serious about the threat they say Trump poses, they need to encourage its return.
Reading Time: 2 minutes Impeachment is a long process. And although it looks more inevitable by the day (LINKS: Fox News Poll shows 51% favor removal, Giuliani Associates Arrested, etc) we know it will be months before Pelosi or Pence will take over. This leads us to the obvious question: what should be on your impeachment playlist? After all, we are hooked on reading the latest drama/nail in the coffin of the Trump Presidency but we shouldn’t do it in silence. We need a soundtrack to this movie. Below is some of what we’ve been listening to as the sky falls on the Orange man.
Reading Time: 2 minutes When the Administration’s cover up of the Ukraine call is so clear and when the President has turned to now publicly making the same overtures that he tried to cover up it is clearly time for a vote on impeachment. As soon as Trump publicly enlisted China’s help in his re-election, he closed the case on himself and now fully deserves to get what is coming to him and quickly.
Reading Time: 5 minutes “Democrats have to stay very disciplined in adhering to that clear, cogent narrative that was written for us,” Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va.) said. “Their strategy of stonewalling and obstruction is significantly counterproductive and frankly puts them in further legal peril — not only the president but his minions.”
Reading Time: 6 minutes You could practically hear the collective gasp in Washington. Republicans had spent days denying what Trump had more or less just admitted to. “As President Trump keeps talking, he makes it more and more difficult for his supporters to mount an actual defense of his underlying behavior,” Philip Klein, the executive editor of the Washington Examiner, a conservative magazine, soon wrote. It was as though Richard Nixon in 1972 had gone out on the White House lawn and said, Yes, I authorized the Watergate break-in, and I’d do it again. It was as though Bill Clinton in 1998 had said, Yes, I lied under oath about my affair with Monica Lewinsky, and I’d do it again.
Reading Time: 11 minutes House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has officially announced that the House of Representatives is pursuing an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, and the release of a readout of a call between Trump and Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky, in which Trump asks Zelensky to revive a criminal inquiry into Joe Biden’s son Hunter, has not quelled Democrats’ desire to impeach.
