    Sen. Mitt Romney said Saturday that it's "very likely" that he'll be in favor of calling witnesses in the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, but won't decide until after opening arguments. "I think it's very likely I'll be in favor of witnesses, but I haven't made a decision finally yet and I won't until the testimony is completed," the Utah Republican said, following the first day of the Trump team's opening arguments. Asked if he thought the defense team was effective, Romney replied, "I just don't have any comments on the process or the evidence until the trial is...

    Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) said Tuesday that he plans to focus on flipping the Texas state House to Democratic control in 2020. “Everything flows up from that," the former presidential candidate told reporters, according to The Texas Tribune. "So not only could Democrats gain control of the House and make progress on stormwater infrastructure, health care, gun violence, climate and education, but that will incidentally help the federal races — from U.S. Congress to U.S. Senate — and I also think it’s also going to lay the groundwork for whoever the presidential nominee is." O’Rourke told reporters of his...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden is healthy enough to undertake the duties of the U.S. presidency, his doctor said on Tuesday in a health report released by the Democrat’s campaign. Biden, 77, is one of 15 Democrats seeking their party’s nomination to run against Republican U.S. President Donald Trump next year in a battle in which the incumbent and the top three of his would-be opponents are all septuagenarians. Biden, who suffered a brain aneurysm in 1988, has no symptoms of similar problems, and while his heart beats irregularly, he is “completely asymptomatic,” said Dr. Kevin O’Connor, who teaches medicine...

    Former Massachusetts Governor and Republican presidential candidate Bill Weld told WGBH News Morning Edition Host Joe Mathieu Monday that Trump has committed impeachable offenses "way worse than Nixon" and should be removed from office. "I'm a longtime federal prosecutor. ... I've never seen such evidence in an obstruction case," Weld said. "Extorting a foreign leader to come interfere in a U.S. election for the advantage of the person doing the extorting, that's as bad as it gets in terms of what the framers were afraid of, and what they thought should be grounds for removal." Weld added that he thinks...

    US Republican Senator Mitt Romney has revealed he uses a secret Twitter account under the name Pierre Delecto. In an interview with The Atlantic magazine on Sunday, the former presidential candidate admitted he had a "lurker" Twitter handle to follow the US political conversation anonymously. While he did not reveal its name, U.S. news site Slate posted an article speculating it could be Pierre Delecto @qaws 9876. Asked to confirm by a journalist, Mr. Romney said "C'est moi" ("It's me").....

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) told the Atlantic on Sunday that he believes the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry investigating President Donald Trump will serve as an “inflection point in American history.” Atlantic staff writer McKay Coppins released an interview on Sunday detailing extended conversations with Romney regarding his views on the U.S. Senate, his attacks on President Trump, as well as his opinions on impeachment. Coppins wrote that while most Republicans have backed the president amidst the impeachment inquiry, Romney continues to stay “open to the idea that the president may need to be evicted from the Oval Office.”Sen. Romney said that he believes that...

    Doc: Dem frontrunner definitely doesn't have brain damage Something is happening behind the scenes within the Democratic Party. Former Vice President Joe Biden remains the prohibitive favorite to win the nomination, even as he continues to commit word gaffes with his mouth. Many still consider Biden to be the most "electable" candidate, but some Democrats, including some of his own aides and supporters, are beginning to express doubts about the 76-year-old's intellectual capacity. It would appear that the Democratic establishment, in its desperation to prevent Bernie Sanders from winning the nomination, is keen to develop a contingency plan in case...

That's up 7 points compared with a late June CNN survey. No other candidate has made meaningful gains over that time.

    At an Iowa Democratic presidential campaign event, former Vice-President Joe Biden electrified an enthusiastic crowd of supporters by assuring them that “poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids. They may not pay attention in school or get good grades, but many in our urban areas have shown entrepreneurial promise by establishing thriving small drug distribution businesses that have overcome the daunting opposition of the police and the law. This, not diplomas on the wall, is the kind of action that makes America great.” Biden also tried to bolster confidence in Democratic electoral success by...

    Joe Biden’s string of gaffes is raising questions among Democrats about his ability to beat President Trump in 2020. Biden made headlines three times in the last week by misspeaking. Over the weekend he mistakenly said he had met as vice president with students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. “Those kids in Parkland came to see me when I was vice president,” he told reporters in Iowa. The Parkland school was attacked by a mass shooter and many of the students were turned into gun control activists in an incident in 2018 — more than a...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden is not a "master debater," especially when faced with talents such as Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.), according to Washington Post congressional reporter Karoun Demirjian. Demirjian noted during a panel on CNN's Inside Politics that Warren's rise in the polls over the past few months have likely been a reflection of her performances at the two Democratic primary debates. That success, Demirjian said, is shifting public opinion away from Biden and toward Warren. "She's gotten a rise out of that whereas Biden is not the master debater people were hoping him to be," Demirjian said....

    Allies to Joe Biden have been floating the idea of altering [reducing] the former vice president's schedule in an effort to reduce the gaffes he has made in recent days. Biden has a tendency to make the blunders late in the day, his allies say, particularly after a long swing on the road, like he had last week in Iowa. They say something needs to be done to give the candidate more down time [naps for the old guy] as the campaign intensifies in the fall. "He needs to be a strong force on the campaign trail, but he also...

    Former President Barack Obama, discussing Joe Biden’s run for the high office in 2020, reportedly told his vice president that he didn’t “have to do this.” “You don’t have to do this, Joe, you really don’t,” Obama told Biden early in 2019, according to The New York Times. The Times reported that Obama “took pains to cast his doubts about the campaign in personal terms.” Biden, who leads President Trump in several polls on 2020 matchups, said he couldn’t forgive himself if he passed up the opportunity to beat Trump. He initially thought he could beat Trump in 2016, but...

    In the most recent Democratic debate, Senator Cory Booker called Joe Biden to task for his constant name-dropping of Barack Obama. “You invoke President Obama more than anybody in this campaign. You can’t do it when it’s convenient and then dodge it when it’s not,” he said in what was one of my favorite moments ever in any of the debates. According to the New York Times, while Joe Biden was seeking counsel on whether to run for president, Barack Obama tried to talk his former vice president out of running.
  • Joe Biden confuses Burlington, Iowa, with Burlington, Vt., in latest gaffe

    Gaffe-prone Democratic 2020 frontrunner Joe Biden reportedly added another factual blunder to his list Friday. During a campaign fundraiser in his home state of Delaware, the former vice president was referencing a speech he had made to a group of 275 people, in which he accused President Trump of "fueling a literal carnage” in the country through his rhetoric. But Biden mistakenly recalled the location of the speech as Burlington, Vt., instead of Burlington, Iowa, according to The Washington Examiner. Whether Biden had Democratic rival Bernie Sanders -- a former mayor of Burlington, Vt. -- on his mind was not...

    In the midst of the hot takes offered up by the 2020 Democrat candidates when the two anti-Semitic U.S. congresswomen were denied entry into Israel, the guy at the front of the pack was quickly reminded that former President Obama’s administration made a similar decision. Joe Biden posted a tweet meant to criticize the Israeli government’s decision. He said he is a supporter of Israel but no one should be denied entry into a democratic state over “ideas”. “No democracy should deny entry to visitors based on the content of their ideas”, he said. Joe Biden: I have always been...
