    Reference Impeachment Three DEM Senators told Ukraine, in writing, their Foreign Aid would be in Jeopardy, if they didn’t dig up dirt in Trump. Three Dem Senators. Why hasn’t the Media or the GOP asked them to recuse? In fact, Durbin was on TV today saying Trump needs to be convicted.

    Many questions remain regarding how the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump will be conducted. Among the points of contention is whether or not witnesses should be called. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., joins Lisa Desjardins to discuss why he believes “you can’t have a trial without witnesses and evidence” and how it’s “no surprise” that most Americans are not following impeachment closely. Read the Full Transcript -snip Thank you, Senator, for joining us. As you just heard, I asked Senator Barrasso, why not plan on calling witnesses now? I want to ask you the reverse question. Why should you plan...

    Most members of New Mexico’s congressional delegation reacted with ire to President Donald Trump’s drone strike that killed Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani, a powerful commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps, early Friday at Baghdad International Airport. Soleimani’s death was first reported by official Iranian media and confirmed by a news release from the Department of Defense that said Soleimani was “actively developing plans to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq.” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told CNN that Soleimani had orchestrated an “imminent” attack but would not elaborate where or when the attack was to take place. Sen....

    The Philippines has banned two U.S. Senators from visiting the country and may impose more restrictions on American citizens over the detention of a leading critic of President Rodrigo Duterte. “We will not sit idly if they continue to interfere with our processes as a sovereign state,” Philippine presidential spokesman Salvador Panelo said, according to a transcript of a press conference provided by the government. Panelo said Duterte ordered the Bureau of Immigration to deny Sens. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), from entering the country.The government is protesting a provision included in a spending package passed by Congress...

    The Philippines has banned two U.S. lawmakers from visiting and will introduce tighter entry restrictions for U.S. citizens should Washington enforce sanctions over the detention of a top government critic, the president's spokesman said on Friday. President Rodrigo Duterte will impose a requirement on U.S. nationals to get visas should any Philippine officials involved in the incarceration of Senator Leila de Lima be denied entry to the United States, as sought by U.S. senators Richard Durbin and Patrick Leahy. Duterte's move comes after the U.S. Congress approved a 2020 budget that contains a provision introduced by the senators against anyone...

    Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) is emerging as the most important vote in the Senate battle over President Trump’s impeachment trial, as Democrats regard her support as key to getting the additional witnesses and documents they need to build their case. Collins, who has played a pivotal role in the biggest Senate debates of the Trump era, finds herself once again in the spotlight as one of the Republicans considered most likely to side with Democrats. “She’s an important player,” said Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), who noted that while every Senate vote is important, key trial questions will be...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was right to so eloquently smack down cryin’ Chuck Schumer’s request for a “Schumer do-over” of the House impeachment process with unheard-from witnesses. If, as House Democrats insist, the “evidence” is “uncontested,” why does Schumer seek new evidence and want to hear new witnesses, providing a list of White House advisers but not a list that includes the alleged Ukraine whistleblower? Schumer whines that McConnell has said he will take his cues on a Senate trial from President Trump, whom the House denied due process and the right to confront his accuser. Too bad, cryin’...

  • 'Black ledger' and naked photos: Democrats pressured foreign countries for dirt on Trump

    Washington Times ^ | September 29, 2019 | By Rowan Scarborough
    Democrats and their operatives sought foreign help for anti-Trump dirt on a number of occasions during the 2016 election and afterward, including the infamous Kremlin-sourced dossier and Rep. Adam B. Schiff’s attempt to obtain from Russians supposed photos of a naked Donald Trump. Democrats also reached out to Ukraine to collect political smut on President Trump and his aides. Republicans believe the Ukrainian intervention, which is now under Justice Department investigation, included the creation of a bogus “black ledger” whose disclosure felled former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort. Three Democratic senators pressured the Ukrainian government last year to help special...

    Democrat Sen. Dick Durbin has temporarily delayed Sen. Mike Lee’s green-card giveaway bill to Indian graduates because it does not give away enough green cards to foreign graduates from many countries. Durbin’s block sends Lee’s business-funded bill back into closed-door negotiations where business lobbyists will keep trying to redesign the nation’s immigration system. The lobbyists are seeking to boost their corporate revenues and profits by steering well-paid jobs away from expert American graduates and their college-graduate children. So far, no GOP or Democrat senator has spoken up to protect millions of American college-graduate voters from this joint effort by the...

    On Tuesday Democrat Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced impeachment investigations against President Donald Trump for allegedly putting pressure on Ukrainian President Zelensky to investigate the Biden Crime Family for laundering hundreds of thousands of dollars from Ukraine. The bogus accusations were based on hearsay from an anti-Trump “whistleblower” who supports a rival political opponent. On Wednesday the transcript of the call between President Trump and President Zelensky was released. By late Wednesday morning we all know the allegations were false. President Trump did not put pressure on the Ukrainian leader and did not even bring up the subject with him during...

    Democrats wrote to the Ukrainian government in May 2018 urging it to continue investigations into President Donald Trump’s alleged collusion with Russia in the 2016 presidential campaign — collusion later found not to exist. The demand, which came from U.S. Senators Robert Menendez (D-NJ), Dick Durbin (D-IL), and Patrick Leahy (D-VT), resurfaced Wednesday in an opinion piece written by conservative Marc Thiessen in the Washington Post. Ironically, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) declared Tuesday that the mere possibility that President Trump had asked Ukraine to continue an investigation of former Vice President Joe Biden — even without a...

    Senate Democrats are threatening to withhold their votes on a spending bill for the Pentagon unless Republicans agree to block President Trump from repurposing defense funds for his wall on the Mexican border, a tactic he’s employed in recent months. Democrats on Thursday will offer an amendment in committee to block Trump from reprogramming defense funds for his wall. “There will likely be some amendments offered, and my vote on final passage depends on the fate of those amendments,” said Sen. Dick Durban (Ill.), the top Democrat on the appropriations subcommittee on defense. While the bill could squeak through the...

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., blasted his Democratic colleagues on Wednesday for sending a stern and unusual warning to the Supreme Court earlier this week in connection with a gun case. Judiciary Committee members Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, and Richard Durbin, D-Ill., along with Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., wrote in a brief filed Monday that the "Supreme Court is not well.” They suggested the court “heal itself” or face public pressure to be “restructured.” Graham said this was a clear reference to expanding the number of justices on the court to make it...

    President Trump spoke with reporters on Wednesday morning following his meeting with Democrats Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. This was also after Pelosi told reporters earlier that President Trump was involved in a “cover-up.” President Trump left the meetings and held an impromptu press conference with the liberal White House press corps. President Trump told reporters, “I don’t do cover-ups.” Trump again told reporters there was “no collusion” and “obstruction.” According to the Number 2 Democrat in the US Senate, Dick Durbin, the president walked into the room with Pelosi and Schumer, blasted them, cancelled the meeting on the spot...
