Missouri Republican Sen. Roy Blunt said Tuesday the Senate will be done with its impeachment trial by the time President Donald Trump delivers the State of the Union speech on February 4. Blunt went on Missouri radio station KSSZ to discuss the Senate impeachment trial, saying he believes the Senate will “be done with this by the time the president comes” to address Congress for his State of the Union speech. The Missouri Senator also said he believes the trial will happen “quickly.” “What’s happening on the impeachment front doesn’t seem too be complicated; it’s an issue I wish the country wasn’t dealing with.

FTA: ''Pelosi has said she believes Trump is “goading” Democrats to impeach him because he thinks it will help him fire up his base.'' Nancy, hate to tell you this but, the base is a roaring inferno RIGHT NOW! And those flames will only get higher when you're Party of Corruption starts getting locked up for an attempted coup.

You know this whole impeachment charade will be over before the SOTU speech. Over but not forgotten. If I was Madame Speaker Nancy, I'd ask Trump to just mail it in. For her and the rest of the 'Rats, the state of the union ain't so rosy. If President Trump wants to be really effective, he would not mention the whole impeachment farce one damned time during the entire State of the Union speech. Instead he should just hammer home all the achievements and successes and promises kept over the last three years with emphasis on how little help he has received from the "Loyal Opposition".

The Senate shouldn't spend over one day on this whole fraud. Just flush it like the sewage that it is.

The other Missouri Senator, Josh Hawley, has a much better plan.

The Democrats are succeeding in locking up the government and making the issue nothing but Trump. Nothing else being done, or discussed.

For the sake of his own impeachment dreams, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-California, ought to shut up and stop saying the quiet part out loud.The House Judiciary chairman began the second day of the Senate's impeachment trial by admitting the unconscionable. "If not remedied by his conviction in the Senate and removal from office, President Trump’s abuse of his office and obstruction of Congress will permanently alter the balance of power among the branches of government," the lead impeachment manager said. "For precisely this reason, the president’s misconduct cannot be decided at the ballot box, for we cannot be assured that the vote will be fairly won."

Adam Schiff, the House manager leading the impeachment case against President Trump, did an excellent job of presenting a fundamentally flawed and fallacious argument in his opening statement yesterday. Schiff is a former federal prosecutor who was articulate and seemingly factual and well-prepared, albeit a little self-righteous. He quoted extensively from White House documents and the testimony of aides and officials who were concerned about the temporary hold on military aid to Ukraine, which gave his presentation an undeserved aura of credibility. But Schiff provided absolutely no factual support for the crucial premise on which his entire case depends. Schiff asserted repeatedly, without providing any evidence,

Mnuchin was asked about Thunberg’s calls for private-sector divestment from fossil fuel companies and if it would threaten economic growth in the US.“Is she the chief economist? Who is she, I’m confused” Mnuchin said before asserting that he was just joking.“After she goes and studies economics in college she can come back and explain that to us,”

Just two weeks into Donald J. Trump’s presidency, Eric Ciaramella—the CIA operative widely believed to be the anti-Trump “whistleblower”— was overheard discussing with another White House staffer the need to remove the president from office, Paul Sperry of RealClearInvestigations reported on Wednesday. Ciaramella was at the time on loan to the White House as a top Ukrainian analyst in the National Security Council (NSC). He had previously served as an adviser on Ukraine to then-Vice President Biden. “Just days after he was sworn in they were already talking about trying to get rid of him,” a White House colleague who overheard their conversation told RCI. “

The government’s bill implementing the withdrawal deal has passed through both Houses of Parliament, meaning the UK will finally be leaving the EU on January 31st, 2020. On Wednesday evening, MPs in the House of Commons rejected the amendments to the European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill proposed by the House of Lords. The upper house could have continued to push for their amendments to be passed, but agreed to end the “ping-pong” phase of passing the legislation, given the Conservatives’ 87-seat working majority would result in the amendments being defeated at every vote.In a brief comment after the bill passed, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said:

The Democrat House Managers for the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump have senators in “agony” and “bored out of their minds”, with many nodding off, walking around and even leaving the chamber for extended periods of time according to reports. The boredom was exacerbated by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) forcing debates and votes on eleven doomed motions that dragged out Tuesday’s opening session until almost 2 a.m. EST. (Photo/Tweet) The boredom set in on the first day, Tuesday, and carried on in to Wednesday as Lead House Manager Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) droned on for hours.

Prince Charles avoided shaking hands with Mike Pence, the U.S. vice president. at an Auschwitz memorial event in Jerusalem Thursday - but then smiled as he greeted Vladimir Putin. A video clip of the Prince of Wales greeting officials in Israel shows him walking along the front row of seats, shaking hands with world and Jewish leaders. When he came to Pence, the vice president had his hand extended in apparent expectation of a handshake. But the heir to the British throne merely looked him in the eye before moving on to shake hands with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the country's President Reuven Rivlin.

Left-wing documentary filmmaker Michael Moore appeared on the Late Night with Seth Meyers Tuesday and said “if we don’t fix climate change, like, now,” then “we don’t have four years,” before we’re all “done.” “If we don’t fix climate change, like, now, we don’t have four years,” proclaimed Michael Moore. “We’re done. We’re done. We’re done.” Moreover, despite endorsing Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) last October for the 2020 presidential race, Moore went on to suggest that the Democrats should “double down” on the woman card by running an all-female presidential ticket in 2020.

The former US vice president made the comparisons during a panel session at the World Economic Forum in Davos, which was attended by teenage activist Greta Thunberg, Prince Charles, and Donald Trump. He said: “The burden to act on the shoulders of the generation of the people alive today is a challenge to our moral imagination. “This is Thermopylae. This is Agincourt.

Illinois lawmakers are raising questions about the integrity of state elections after the secretary of state admitted hundreds of non-citizens were registered as voters, and could have cast ballots illegally in the 2018 election. In a letter, Secretary of State Jesse White’s office said a “programming error” in a signature pad at driver services facilities led to hundreds of non-U.S. citizens accidentally being registered as voters. The Secretary of State’s Office said the problem has been fixed Tuesday, but state lawmakers and election authorities are just beginning to raise concerns. “We view it as a significant problem," said Matt Dietrich of the Illinois State Board Of Elections.

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Women in four key states – Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin—could decide who occupies the White House next year. And they may be turning away from President Donald Trump, according to a newly released poll. Yet, many women voters in these states remain undecided. And women at this point are a little less motivated than men to vote in November’s presidential election, according to the poll from Baldwin Wallace, Ohio Northern and Michigan’s Oakland universities. In the Great Lakes states, more women voters said they would support the Democratic Party’s yet unnamed candidate over Trump if the election were held today.
