IT BEGINS: Dems Launch Investigation Hours After Trump Declares Border Emergency

Just the start.

Well, it finally happened. President Trump declared a national emergency at the southern border, just as he said he would.

Now, the House Judiciary Committee has decided to open an investigation into the legitimacy of the emergency.

Rest assured, though.

Trump was well within his right as president to make such a move.

From Washington Examiner:

The House Judiciary Committee will investigate President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the border, citing his statement Friday, “I didn’t need to do this, but I would rather do it much faster.”

Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., and fellow Democrats have requested a hearing with Department of Justice officials and White House counsel, writing in a letter to the president, “We believe your declaration of an emergency shows a reckless disregard for the separation of powers and your own responsibilities under our constitutional system.”

“The House Judiciary Committee is commencing an immediate investigation into this matter, which raises both serious constitutional and statutory issues,” the letter signed by Nadler and six other House Democrats said.

The ACLU has declared that they will also challenge the declaration, per Daily Wire:

Following Trump’s Rose Garden announcement, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) wasted little time in announcing its plan to sue the Trump Administration. The ACLU press release reads, in relevant part:

The ACLU will argue that President Trump’s use of emergency powers to evade Congressional funding restrictions is unprecedented and that 10 U.S.C. § 2808, the emergency power that Trump has invoked, cannot be used to build a border wall. Congress restricted the use of that power to military construction projects, like overseas military airfields in wartime, that “are necessary to support” the emergency use of armed forces.

Many conservative legal scholars disagree with the ACLU’s analysis. In particular, John Eastman of the Claremont Institute and John Yoo of Berkeley Law and the American Enterprise Institute, each of whom formerly clerked on the U.S. Supreme Court for Justice Clarence Thomas, have both expressed their belief that President Trump’s national emergency is being enacted declared pursuant to Congress’s delegated statutory authority. There is also the separate threshold question as to whether the ACLU would even have proper standing to sue, under Article III of the U.S. Constitution.

On Tuesday evening, Trump sent a tweet saying he’s getting $23 billion for “border security.”

That’s close to five times more than the original $5.7 billion asking price.

Was just presented the concept and parameters of the Border Security Deal by hard working Senator Richard Shelby. Looking over all aspects knowing that this will be hooked up with lots of money from other sources….

….Will be getting almost $23 BILLION for Border Security. Regardless of Wall money, it is being built as we speak!

Trump is getting things done for the American people, day after day, month after month.

It’s too bad that some people can’t realize that.

Washington Democrat Rep. Pramila Jayapal wants America to pay “reparations” to border crossers.

Trump 2020 Campaign Fires McGhan’s Law Firm

Turnover is nothing new for the Trump White House.

Published

One of the key players identified in the pages of the Mueller report is Don McGhan, former counsel to the President. McGhan’s name hasn’t previously been this far into the forefront, but a revelation from within Robert Mueller’s inconclusive dissertation regarding possible obstruction of justice by the President has made him nearly a household name. McGhan’s infamy arises from a passage in the report detailing his reaction to a question by President Trump regarding possible conflicts of interest that Robert Mueller and his team may have had. After McGhan’s insubordination became public knowledge with the release of Mueller’s epic tome, President Trump’s 2020 campaign team have decided to no longer retain legal services from his firm. The Trump campaign has hired its own in-house attorney for its 2020 reelection bid — shifting future business away from Jones Day, the law firm, that has represented Trump since his first run for president. Campaign officials and advisers cast the decision to hire Nathan Groth — a former lawyer for the Republican National Committee and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker — as a money-saving move, supported by the businessman-turned-president who loves to cut costs. Here’s the kicker… But close Trump advisers say the decision also stems from disappointment with the White House’s former top attorney and current Jones Day partner, Don McGahn, whose behavior has irked the president and some of his family members. This certainly won’t surprise many within Trump’s inner circle, as his administration has been rife with turnover during the 2+ years since the President was inaugurated.

Trump Approval Numbers are SHOCKING After Mueller Report Release

National Emergency

The mainstream media’s nonstop speculation on the meaning of the Mueller report has certainly had an impact on the psyche of the nation. For two days, (that feel like an eternity), the infotainment industry has been parsing nearly every word from within the 400+ page report compiled by Robert Mueller in his role as Special Counsel. While Mueller was unable to charge the President with a crime, the mainstream media is now clinging to hope that congressional democrats will keep the fight alive….somehow. This cacophony of progressive nonsense has manifested itself in President Trump’s approval ratings. The number of Americans who approve of President Donald Trump dropped by 3 percentage points to the lowest level of the year following the release of a special counsel report detailing Russian interference in the last U.S. presidential election, according to an exclusive Reuters/Ipsos public opinion poll. The poll, conducted Thursday afternoon to Friday morning, is the first national survey to measure the response from the American public after the U.S. Justice Department released Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s 448-page report that recounted numerous occasions in which Trump may have interfered with the investigation. Where does Trump stand? According to the poll, 37 percent of adults in the United States approved of Trump’s performance in office, down from 40 percent in a similar poll conducted on April 15 and matching the lowest level of the year. That is also down from 43 percent in a poll conducted shortly after U.S. Attorney General William Barr circulated a summary of the report in March. The President has communicated his displeasure at the continued grievance of the democrats via Twitter, where he has lashed out several times since the release of the Mueller report.
