    It was unanimous. The House Freedom Caucus formally condemned Rep. Justin Amash's (R-MI) recent call to begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump at a Monday meeting. Having read the Robert Mueller report in its entirety, Amash tweeted over the weekend that there were enough questions in there to suggest Trump obstructed justice and engaged in " impeachable conduct ." “It was every single person who totally disagrees with what he says,” Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) said after the Freedom Caucus voted on Amash's Twitter thread. They did not go so far as to vote him out of the conservative caucus,...
  • GOP lawmaker: Trump has engaged in multiple actions that 'meet threshold for impeachment'

    A Michigan Republican and member of the House Freedom Caucus broke with his party Saturday in a rare series of tweetes accusing President Trump of "impeachable conduct." Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) tweeted Saturday that the president's actions to potentially obstruct the now-shuttered special counsel investigation warranted impeachment by the House, and accused Attorney General William Barr of "deliberately misrepresenting" Robert Mueller's report of the investigation's findings. "Here are my principal conclusions: 1. Attorney General Barr has deliberately misrepresented Muellers report. 2. President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct. 3. Partisanship has eroded our system of checks and balances. 4. Few...
  • Flake: Better for a Dem to win in 2020 than Trump

    Former Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) said Thursday that he would rather see a Democrat win in 2020 than have President Trump elected to a second term. Flake made his comments at a debate in New York hosted by the nonprofit Intelligence Squared. Flake and New York Times columnist Bret Stephens argued that the GOP should not renominate Trump, while Liz Peek and former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach backed the president. Moderator John Donvan asked Flake if he would rather see Trump lose if he is the party's standard-bearer in 2020. "Are you willing to lose a cycle for...

    Twitter posts at link. Full title: WATCH: Michael Steele Thinks Trump Is 'Probably Not Happy' The FBI Stopped a Terrorist Attack Against Dems A few days ago, the FBI arrested U.S. Coast Guard Lt. Christopher Paul Hasson, a self-identified white nationalist who wanted "focused violence to establish a white homeland." He made a list of targets, primarily Democratic lawmakers and liberal journalists and began researching ways to carry out the attack. Current MSNBC contributor and former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele made some rather strange comments about the story, saying it was likely that President Trump was upset that...

  • Romney assails Trump in New Year's op-ed: 'The president has not risen to the mantle of the office'

    Days before he officially becomes a U.S. senator, Mitt Romney took to the Washington Post to fire a shot across President Trumps bow, saying Mr. Trump had made a deep descent in December and is hurting the national character. In an op-ed column published online Tuesday evening, Mr. Romney, now a Republican senator-elect for Utah, came down hardest on recent moves in foreign policy and Cabinet positions related to that. After he became the nominee, I hoped his campaign would refrain from resentment and name-calling. It did not. When he won the election, I hoped he would rise to the...

    Tweets at link. Well, hes been a pain in the rear end for months. Hes been a thorn in his partys side during the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court nomination. Even as the GOP tries to confirm a slate of conservative judges to federal benches, hes been insufferable. And why? On the latter issue, it was over Senate Republicans refusal to pass a bill to protect Special Counsel Robert Mueller from being fired by the president. Yes, Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) has acted like your atypical Never Trump Republican. He has no base of support, no plan, no future, and so...

    Fox News ^ | 11/22/2018 | Joseph diGenova | Opinion
    In a remarkably inappropriate and blatantly political statement Wednesday, U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts chastised President Trump for the presidents quite accurate criticism of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and its rogue district and appellate court judges. The spectacle of the ostensibly nonpolitical chief justice engaged in a dispute with the president of the United States is insulting to the Supreme Court and to our system of justice. Shame on the chief justice. What he did is unforgivable, especially after the corrosive Senate confirmation battle over now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who was the subject of bitter and...

    Sen. Jeff Flake announced Wednesday that he will not vote to advance any new judicial nominees through the Judiciary Committee, nor will he vote to confirm picks on the Senate floor, until he gets his way on unrelated legislation to prevent the firing of special counsel Robert Mueller. Mr. Flake made the announcement on the Senate floor minutes after his bid to pass the bill failed. His threat could block the committee from approving any more judges this year, since the GOP only holds a one-seat majority on the panel. Its less catastrophic to approving judges on the Senate floor,...

    Former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg is officially a Democrat again. The global media company founder on Wednesday said he has registered as a Democrat, which would be especially significant if he decides to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020. Bloomberg says on social media he did so because we need Democrats to provide the checks and balance our nation so badly needs.

    Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman said she is ready anytime, anyplace to appear as a witness against President Trump, including a potential Senate impeachment trial. I have the truth on my side as well as a hundred emails and documents and other things, said Manigault Newman in an interview with the Yahoo News podcast Skullduggery released Friday, claiming she can testify about her knowledge of Russian ties to Trumps campaign. Manigault Newman said that congressional committees have not yet reached out to her seeking testimony regarding information relevant to lawmaker probes into election interference and potential collusion with...

    I feel sorry for Megan McCain...but I understand her undying love & loyalty to her father who is dying. But....I, and millions of Americans are disgusted and completely turned off on Senator, John McCain. He certainly cannot be considered a hero when he openly bad mouths the loyal, dedicated, hard working, woman, Sarah Palen, his 2008 VP running mate, when he casts the one vote that allowed the failed Obamacare to continue living, when he refuses to resign his Senate position as he both is dying and leaving every citizen in Arizona without a workable "He cannot vote unless he...

    Former U.S. Rep. Charles Djou says he is leaving the Republican Party. Djou, in a column written for the online news site Civil Beat today, cited the partys leadership under President Donald Trump as the main reason that led to his decision. Djou wrote,Today after much consideration, I abandon my party because I am unwilling to abandon my principles. I can no longer stand with a Republican Party that is led by a man I firmly believe is taking the party of Lincoln in a direction I fundamentally disagree with, and a party that is unwilling to stand up to...

    Former president George W. Bush said he believes Russia meddled in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, departing from President Trump, who has been skeptical of intelligence agencies findings that the Kremlin had interfered to help him win. Theres pretty clear evidence that the Russians meddled. Whether they affected the outcome is another question, the 43rd president said at a summit in Abu Dhabi on Thursday. He added: Its problematic that a foreign nation is involved in our election system. Our democracy is only as good as people trust the results. Bush has been critical of Russia, slamming it for working...

Whether they affected the outcome is another question, Bush added. He called it problematic that a foreign nation is involved in our election system.

Therefore, much of his moves (are) to regain Soviet hegemony. The...

    Russia meddled in U.S election, George W. Bush says ABU DHABI (Reuters) - Former U.S. president George W. Bush accused Russia on Thursday of meddling in the U.S. 2016 presidential election, calling Russian President Vladimir Putin a brilliant tactician. Bush, interviewed on stage at a business conference in the capital of the United Arab Emirates, said there was clear evidence that the Russians had meddled but whether that affected the outcome of the election was another question. But they meddled and that is dangerous for democracy, he said, adding that Russia had done the same thing during the Cold War...

    Former President George W. Bush said Thursday that there is "pretty clear evidence that the Russians meddled" in the 2016 presidential election, a seeming rebuke of President Donald Trump, who has at times questioned the intelligence communitys assessment that the Kremlin is to blame. "Whether (Russia) affected the outcome is another question," Bush said at conference in Abu Dhabi, according to a USA Today report. "Its problematic that a foreign nation is involved in our election system. Our democracy is only as good as people trust the results.

    Some weeks ago, former President George W. Bush delivered a speech attacking the incumbent president, Donald Trump, and his supporters. That was the unmistakable thrust of Mr. Bushs remarks, in the apprehension of virtually everyone, even though he chose not to mention President Trump by name. The address consisted largely of elliptical references to sins committed against democracy, with the guilty parties left unidentified. But all of the sins referenced -- bigotry, white supremacism, nativism, protectionism, isolationism, casual cruelty, Russian interference in the last election -- sounded like liberal talking points. This address, given at an assemblage entitled Spirit of...

    (CNN)The White House has struck back at both Bush presidents Saturday after the two made stinging comments about President Donald Trump in a new book about the father and son. "If one presidential candidate can disassemble a political party, it speaks volumes about how strong a legacy its past two presidents really had," a White House official told CNN. "And that begins with the Iraq war, one of the greatest foreign policy mistakes in American history." "President Trump remains focused on keeping his promises to the American people by bringing back jobs, promoting an 'America First' foreign policy and standing...
