    There is a 20% chance Senate Republicans would be inclined to vote to impeach and remove President Donald Trump, a Republican source told "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace. Wallace told White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney during an interview Sunday that there seems to be some Republicans who, "if not breaking with the president – distancing themselves from the president." "I talked to a very well-connected Republican in Washington this week," Wallace added. "Somebody whose name you would know well, who says, that 'if the House votes to impeach and it gets to a trial in the Senate,...

    A multiyear State Department probe of emails that were sent to former secretary of state Hillary Clinton’s private computer server concluded there was no systemic or deliberate mishandling of classified information by department employees, according to a report submitted to Congress this month. The report appears to represent a final and anticlimactic chapter in a controversy that overshadowed the 2016 presidential campaign and exposed Clinton to fierce criticism that she later cited as a major factor in her loss to President Trump. In the end, State Department investigators found 38 current or former employees “culpable” of violating security procedures —...

    Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney acknowledged that he held up $390 million in security aide for Ukraine in order to pressure the country into pursuing a 2016 election probe being demanded by President Trump. Trump and top administration officials have vigorously denied any 'quid pro quo' with Ukraine following a whistleblower's report that the White House was demanding a probe of the Bidens as well as Trump's conspiracy theory that the DNC server might be in Ukraine's possession. In a rare White House briefing, Mulvaney denied any knowledge of a company linked to Hunter Biden – but...

    FULL TITLE: The US needs 307,000 more teachers than it currently has — but few are taking the job due to low pay The student population is growing — and not enough teaching jobs are available to keep up.A new report found that since the Great Recession of 2008, the country lost 60,000 jobs in education. Not only that, but 247,000 more teaching jobs should have been created to keep up with growing student enrollment as the population increases. This has resulted in a shortfall of 307,000 teaching jobs — meaning there are over 300,000 educators currently needed right now....

    A former CIA agent has revealed how she carried her newborn baby with her during undercover missions to stop al Qaeda from getting hold of a nuclear weapon. Amaryllis Fox gave birth to her daughter Zoe while based in Shanghai, China where she was posing as an art dealer on assignment for the intelligence service. The 38-year-old was so committed to her job that she put the child in a sling while meeting with arms dealers turned informants. Fox took evasive routes to shake off a person who was trailing her, while her baby was strapped to her chest, she...

    Senate isn’t going to convict. He should accept that the swamp-defenders in the House are going to impeach him, and claim it to his rhetorical advantage. Just like he boasted about the boos he got from lobbyists and GOP bigwigs in the Republican primary debates He’s an outsider who is trying to clean the stables. Of COURSE that means the swampsters will impeach him - if they didn’t it would be a sign he wasn’t making progress AnywY, this is the message I’d write if I were his speechwriter

    Internal divisions within the White House are straining staff and should be considered a sign of an "impending disaster," as House Democrats prepare to launch an all-out impeachment effort against President Trump, says Joe Lockhart, a former press secretary for the Clinton administration. "There’s a split between the president’s aides and the vice president’s aides. And that is always a sign of impending disaster," Lockhart said Thursday on CNN's "New Day."

    WASHINGTON — White House officials were scrambling Thursday to figure out how to counter the House Democrats' impeachment inquiry, with one source familiar with the situation describing a sense of “total panic” over the past week at the lack of a plan to address the new reality. There appears to be rising “anxiety, unease, and concern” — as one person close to the White House described the mood in the West Wing — that the whistleblower’s allegations could seriously wound the president and some of those around him. “There’s not a lot of confidence that there’s no there there,” this...

    President Trump and his aides are privately worried that impeachment investigations will stifle administration work, such as efforts to procure a North American trade deal, even as they publicly gird for a fight, according to multiple insiders. But operatives on his reelection campaign see an opportunity to mobilize the base, setting up a divide between them and White House aides trying to head off damage. Trump’s confidants charge that the Democrats are acting in bad faith and trying to stymie the president’s chances to advance some policies before the campaign shoves everything else aside. Trump himself unsuccessfully tried to prevent...

    Joe Biden told a harrowing story during an event in 2017 about facing down a razor-wielding gang leader named Corn Pop in his youth by threatening to “wrap” a chain around the man’s head. The incident came back into the spotlight over the weekend when footage of Biden’s remarks began circulating social media. The former vice president, who has come under scrutiny in recent weeks for embellishing portions of his personal and political life, told the story when being honored with having a community pool named after him in a Wilmington, Delaware, historically black neighborhood. Biden had reportedly been the...

    Monitoring Governor Palin’s pre-ascent to the national political scene was one of the stories that prompted my joining FR while in college. I remember Free Republic being one of the few places online (along with Glenn Beck’s show, to his credit) to profile the rising star governor: her successes navigating Alaska’s international corporate oil scene, her carrying a Down Syndrome baby to term, and before anybody in the media or even GOP establishment knew who she was — her qualifications as a viable for runningmate for John McCain. I stayed up all night before the day of the announcement, praying...
