“Like many Americans, we expected the testimony of the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch, to be powerful. We did not expect it to prove so emotional, or to feel so familiar” from @Mimi Rocah & @Karen Schwartz https://www.nbcnews.com/think/opinion/trump-s-smearing-ex-ambassador-marie-yovanovitch-echoes-christ...
In any other administration, firing the white supremacist would be a no-brainer
Testimony in Stone's trial suggests Trump responses to Mueller questions were untruthful. This is a serious matter that requires further inquiry & since DOJ says POTUS can't be indicted, Congress has sole jurisdiction. Surely they shouldn't just ignore it. https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/legal-issues/mueller-grand-jury-material-urgently-needed-for-im...
Don’t read too much into an administrative stay.
We’ve heard Trump say he’ll answer questions in an inquiry before & renege, but imagine the ratings! It would be the biggest tv audience ever. Go for it Mr. President!
Reupping this. The GOP IS somewhere around the Rudy & the 3 amigos went rogue defense. But ultimately, all Trump will have left is saying even if he did it it’s not impeachable & we know it is. The founding fathers even put bribery in the Constitution. https://time.com/5724220/donald-trump-impeachment-defense/
The easy way to put rumors to rest would be for Trump to do a brief public event today. No reason not to.
She was on the call and took notes. Don’t think she needs a transcript.
Wistfully remembering the good old days of Richard Nixon, when disgraced presidents had the decency to resign.
Nancy Pelosi today: "What the president did was so much worse than even what Richard Nixon did, but at some point, Richard Nixon cared about the country enough to recognize that this could not continue." https://www.axios.com/pelosi-impeachment-republican-defense-023e4b6d-cfb0-4079-a2e4-42f3b589eb1a.htm...
