On Cohen's testimony


Now House Democrats plan to use Cohen’s revelations as a blueprint to summon key witnesses and pursue investigative avenues they say their Republican counterparts have ignored. That is likely to trigger a steady flow of public hearings involving those closest to the president as Democrats hunt for more damaging revelations.

As far as I recall, Felix Sater will be the next to testify. We'll see how many more will be subpoenaed in the near future.

Also caught in the midst of those discussions are Donald Jr and Ivanka, two of Drumpf’s children, who Cohen testified were briefed “approximately 10 times” about the project. Donald Jr had previously told the Senate intelligence committee under oath that he was only “peripherally aware” of it, while Ivanka Drumpf claimed ignorance about the plan as recently as last month, stating in an interview she knew “literally almost nothing” about it.

If Drumpf was, in fact, guilty of finance and insurance fraud for lying about his... show more


 

Another president candidate joining the race? Stay tuned


"I've been pleased by what I've been hearing across the country," the second-term Democratic governor said. "That people do want a president that will act on a real emergency, which is climate change."

"The moment that the administration jeopardizes any federal expenditure in our state, we will file suit," Inslee said. "And we feel good about our chances to succeed. We have done so."

"In responding to the climate change emergency, we need to work together, executive and legislative branch. But if there are new rules, the Republicans have to understand that Democrats will play by whatever the rules are, particularly when it comes to climate change," Inslee said.

Oversight offensive expected for Trump


Top Democrats immediately warned of double standards after a torrent of disclosure orchestrated by Republicans related to investigations into Hillary Clinton, and vowed to use their power to ensure full disclosure.

"To do anything less than overturn this action by the President, we would be delinquent in our duties," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said during a trip to the border last week.

"I am leaning against the resolution of disapproval mainly because I think this is (Senate Minority Leader) Schumer's and Pelosi's way of painting the President in the corner," Cornyn said Monday.

Incoming appointments in relation to Robert Mueller


In 2019, Drumpf and his associates are not only being investigated by Mueller, but also, by the Southern District of New York as well as different Democrat-led committees in Congress.

Just check the chronological listing, there are further information for all of the incoming appointments that are set to contribute either to Mueller's final report or the House investigations on Trump's probable crimes.

Matthew Whitaker to testify publicly on Friday


“If you appear before the Committee tomorrow morning and if you are prepared to respond to questions from our Members, then I assure you that there will be no need for the Committee to issue a subpoena on or before February 8,” Nadler wrote.

It took me a moment why he was told to testify. I first thought that it would be about the nomination on a new AG for the DOJ, which I thought Mr. Barr was planned and supposed to be. It seems like this is about the decisions the DOJ made under his operative leadership.

Whitaker is likely to face a barrage of questions from Democrats on his oversight of the investigation as well as his communications with the White House.

I hope there'll be more news on this today (I'm from Germany, remember; while your day might have only begun now, we're at high noon). I would like to hear what he has got to say while testifying.

Congresswomen Katie HIll, Rashida Tlaib and AOC enter House Oversight Committee


On the mission, yes. But the newcomers’ styles will depend in part on how solidly they won their districts in the November elections.

It’s an apt home for the outspoken new members. Real-time drama - on matters ranging from former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to Hurricane Katrina and steroids in sports - was the panel’s trademark long before Drumpf and the Democratic freshmen came to Washington.

For now, Cummings is repeating two guiding words to keep the newcomers’ enthusiasm productive: “efficiency” and “effectiveness.”
