SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine — Republican Sen. Susan Collins says she's getting death threats after her vote to acquit President Donald Trump at his impeachment trial, saying three of them were deemed “credible” and are being investigated. Collins made the disclosure Friday while addressing the Maine Chiefs of Police Association winter conference. “I just want you to know that I’ve always loved you and appreciated you. But now I have a real personal appreciation for all that you do to keep us safe,” Collins told the group in South Portland, Maine. Collins also received threats before when she voted to confirm

The left will stop at nothing, even murder to retaliate if they don't get their way. We must stand firm or lose our democracy.

Collins' only hope for re-election is that President Trump comes to Maine, has a rally in the Second Congressional District (northern 2/3 of the state) and endorses her. Democrats in Maine won't vote for her.

She should think about this: If someone were really intending to kill you, would they really warn you first? By making the threat, they completely remove the element of surprise and have warned their supposed target. Rather than the target being an unsuspecting victim, the warning allows them to take precautions and increase their security posture. The intended victim could even arm themselves and turn the tables on their attacker.

There was not a single critical vote in this exercise. 19 more votes were required for removal from office, so no senator was placed in the position to cast the "deciding vote".

Liberals are fascists. Collins is one of the stupidest people in Washington, and she is in way, way over her head. Clearly, Maine needs someone who will take it to the liberal fascists and destroy them. Collins has been doing way too much bending over to them.

When Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg touted support from African American comedian and actor Keegan-Michael Key last week, his campaign was forced just hours later to clarify that the actor had not officially endorsed the former South Bend mayor, telling reporters he only sought to "encourage early voting and voter registration." Key appeared with Buttigieg on Saturday to drum up voter support at his Henderson, Nevada field office.

Sen. Bernie Sanders suffered a heart attack last October, but when asked on Monday night whether he'd release any additional medical records, the presidential candidate said he likely wouldn't. When a CNN host pressed Sanders' campaign press secretary, Briahna Joy Gray, on the issue during a Tuesday morning interview, Gray called the question "reminiscent" of "smear and skepticism campaigns" like the racist birtherism conspiracy concerning former President Barack Obama's birthplace. Gray added that the media isn't asking the same questions of other candidates, including 78-year-old former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who she claimed has "suffered heart attacks in

Washington, DC - Some residents in Oregon are fed up with living under Democratic control of their state government and have launched a ballot initiative campaign to join Republican-led Idaho.

Mike McCarter, chief petitioner of the secession effort, has noted though that the movement is in its infancy and would take years to accomplish, even if successful.

A bill that would make Washington, D.C., the 51st U.S. state was approved by a Democratic-led House committee last week, setting the stage for a vote by the full chamber in the near future. If it passes, as expected, it will be the first time the campaign to bestow statehood on the nation’s capital has been endorsed by one of the chambers of Congress. Republicans in the Senate are expected to swiftly reject the bill, however, continuing a legacy of partisan sparring over the District of Columbia that has been going on for more than two centuries.

WASHINGTON—House Democrats are grappling with whether to pursue further investigations of President Trump following his acquittal in the Senate, facing both an election in nine months and fresh White House actions that they say demand scrutiny. Democrats want to look into whether the president improperly influenced the Justice Department’s sentencing recommendation for a Trump confidant, casting Mr. Trump as emboldened by the end of the impeachment process. At the same time, party leaders are eager to focus on pocketbook issues for voters, such as health care, and Democrats are wary of launching another drawn-out fight with the White House that

Michael Bloomberg's presidential campaign has struggled to fully address the nominee's well-documented history with women and people of color. One key aspect of that struggle is Bloomberg's own company, Bloomberg LP. Indeed, some of the candidate's purportedly most outrageous remarks were originally memorialized by his own employees in an actual booklet that has been passed around, samizdat-style, for decades by his former staffers, journalists, and political operatives. The booklet — "The Portable Bloomberg: The Wit and Wisdom of Michael Bloomberg" — was crafted by Bloomberg LP employees looking to roast their boss by compiling his allegedly most crude, sexist, and seemingly off-color
