  • New York Times: Bolton draft book manuscript says Trump tied Ukraine aid freeze to political investigations

    01/26/2020 5:28:29 PM PST · by janetjanet998 · 195 replies
    Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump in August told his then-national security adviser John Bolton that he wanted to continue holding military aid to Ukraine until the country helped with investigations into Democrats -- including former Vice President Joe Biden -- the New York Times reported Sunday, citing multiple people's descriptions of an unpublished draft manuscript by Bolton.
  • #CNNisTrash Trending After Dem. Debate For Biased Questions

    CNN is catching heat from viewers for their questioning of Senator Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.) at the Democratic debate Tuesday night. Just a day earlier, it was reported that Sanders had told fellow presidential candidate, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Ma.), in 2018 that a woman could not win the election, something Sanders has vehemently denied. But despite Sanders’s repeated denials, CNN moderator Abby Phillip went ahead with a line of questioning that made it sound as if there was no doubt Sanders had in fact said it. “So Senator Sanders, I do want to be clear here,” Phillip said, “you’re saying that...
  • The case for letting senators vote secretly on Trump's fate

    Donald Trump will go down in history as the third US president to be impeached. Yet no president has ever been convicted and removed from office as a result of impeachment, and it appears unlikely that Trump will be, either. While no Republican senator has indicated he or she will vote for Trump's removal, prominent members of the GOP like former Arizona Senator Jeff Flake claim that at least 35 would do so if they were allowed to cast their ballots in secret.
  • EXTORTION: Nancy Pelosi Threatens to Withhold Impeachment Articles from Senate Republicans

    Well, the final vote in the House of Representatives was not a shocker. House Democrats' lust to impeach President Trump on some shoddy quid pro quo allegation over military aid to Ukraine passed after nearly 12 hours of debate. As Katie wrote, the vote was 229-198-1. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), a 2020 Democratic candidate, voted present, while Reps. Jeff Van Drew (D-NJ) and Collin Peterson (D-MN) voted with Republicans against this witch-hunt. Today was truly a clown show, with scores of Democrats trying to make the case that Trump is an existential threat to the United States. There was a...

    President Trump has been discussing with his campaign advisers whether or not to participate in the general election debates in 2020, two people close to the situation told The New York Times. According to the sources, Trump doesn't trust the Commission on Presidential Debates, the nonprofit organization that puts on the debates. Specifically, Trump is apprehensive of who will be chosen by the organization to moderate the debates, the Times reports. Trump's campaign reportedly declined to comment on what their plan was for the debates at a state-of-the-race campaign briefing in Arlington, Va. During the 2016 campaign, the president persistently...
  • DNC Leaks Show Hillary Clinton's Rigged Game

    Trump accused Hillary Clinton of being the beneficiary of a rigged system. Then the DNC leaks proved it by showing just how aggressively the Democratic National Committee was working to push Hillary and suppress any of her rivals to the crown. Not only was the process rigged with the superdelegates, but the DNC functioned like an arm of the Clinton campaign.

    THE most memorable incidents in earth-changing events are sometimes the most banal. In the rapidly spreading scandal of LIBOR (the London inter-bank offered rate) it is the very everydayness with which bank traders set about manipulating the most important figure in finance. They joked, or offered small favours. “Coffees will be coming your way,” promised one trader in exchange for a fiddled number. “Dude. I owe you big time!… I’m opening a bottle of Bollinger,” wrote another. One trader posted diary notes to himself so that he wouldn’t forget to fiddle the numbers the next week. “Ask for High 6M...

    Markets TANK In Final Moments Of The Day: Here's What You Need To Know Joe Weisenthal May 26, 2010, 4:00 PM After surging by as much as 2% at one point, markets collapsed in the final moments of the day, a session that will prove very dispiriting for the bulls.

    Upon further review, SportsNation finds insufficient reason to get excited about the Pittsburgh Steelers winning Super Bowl XL in Detroit on Sunday. By beating the Seattle Seahawks 21-10, the Steelers gave Jerome Bettis the perfect parting gift as the burly running back heads into retirement. The Steelers also became just the third franchise to win a fifth Super Bowl, although SportsNation voters still rank them behind the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys for dominance during the Super Bowl era. But while Pittsburgh fans can revel in the moment of Antwaan Randle El's strike to Hines Ward and savor the...
