President Trump Criticizes Democrats For Scheduling Impeachment Hearing While He’s Overseas For NATO Meeting

Published

President Trump was none too happy with Democrats on Monday as they dove right into the next phase of the impeachment inquiry right as Trump was scheduled to leave overseas for a NATO meeting.

Trump made remarks about the scheduling conflict as he left Washington and headed to over to our friends across the pond in London. Rep. Jerrold Nadler invited the president to participate in a hearing this Wednesday, but he declined, saying Democrats were well aware of the timing of the proceedings and his trip to NATO.

“So the Democrats, the radical left Democrats, the do-nothing Democrats decided when I’m going to NATO, which was set up a year ago, that when I’m going to NATO that was the exact time,” Trump said, noting that his NATO trip is “one of the most important journeys” of his.

Trump said that the impeachment efforts are “a hoax to start off with,” and pointed to a new interview with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that he claims supports his case. Trump is accused of pressuring Zelensky into investigating Democratic activities during the 2016 election as well as former vice president Joe Biden and his son Hunter, allegedly withholding military aid to Ukraine as leverage.

Trump noted that Republicans have united behind him during the impeachment inquiry, and predicted that ultimately “it’s going to be a tremendous boon” for the GOP, despite saying that “in other ways, it’s a disgrace.”

Nadler also gave the president the option of having counsel present at the hearing on Wednesday to represent him, but Trump said that he wouldn’t do that “because the whole thing is a hoax and everybody knows it.”

White House counsel Pat Cipollone ripped into Nadler in a letter released on Sunday that criticized Democrats for scheduling a hearing when they knew the President would be away.

Here are a few excerpts from the letter:

“You scheduled this hearing—no doubt purposely—during the time that you know the President will be out of the country attending the NATO Leaders Meeting in London.”

“As for the hearing scheduled for December 4, we cannot fairly be expected to participate in a hearing while the witnesses are yet to be named and while it remains unclear whether the Judiciary Committee will afford the president a fair process through additional hearings. More importantly, an invitation to an academic discussion with law professors does not begin to provide the President with any semblance of a fair process. Accordingly, under the current circumstances, we do not intend to participate in your Wednesday hearing.”

Is this hilarious or what?

If Joe Biden is out campaigning, you can almost be certain there’s a gaffe on the way. The latest example is out of Iowa and it deals with the twice-failed VP’s attempt to bite his wife’s finger. Check this out, via Daily Wire: Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden briefly chewed on his wife’s finger during a campaign stop on Saturday in Iowa, which drew mockery online from critics. Biden nibbled on Jill Biden’s finger onstage at a rally in Council Bluffs, Iowa, after she swung her arm in front of him while she was introducing him to the audience. WATCH: YOU CAN’T MAKE THIS UP. Joe Biden just NIBBLED on his wife’s finger at a campaign stop in Iowa. https://twitter.com/SteveGuest/status/1200903299131568128?s=20 Democrats know that even though they only have a small chance at defeating President Trump in 2020, Joe is their best shot. The MSM, the uninformed and Hollywood elites are willing to overlook Joe’s numerous gaffes on race and gays simply because they hate Trump that much. Now, Congressional lawmakers want all other 2020 candidates to stop picking away at Biden’s flaws. Because…who cares about competition? From The Hill: Democratic lawmakers warn that Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and other White House hopefuls taking shots at front-runner Joe Biden are playing with fire and could wind up helping President Trump win reelection. While there are disagreements about the former vice president in the Senate Democratic Caucus, Democratic senators are rising to his defense after Booker demanded Biden apologize for recounting his collegial relationship with two segregationist former senators, James Eastland (D-Miss.) and Herman Talmadge (D-Ga.). Sen. Dianne Feinstein noted, “I think everybody is picking on him, press as well as others. He’s the front-runner so he’s the one to shoot down, so to speak.” For some reason, Biden said he “got…

Elizabeth Warren Asked How She’ll Pay For Her Policies; She Says ‘There’s Always Money’

Published

on

Presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who has been asked repeatedly how she plans to pay for something like Medicare for All, and each time the question comes up, it seems as if she can’t give a solid answer. Warren recently dismissed the idea that her ability to provide funding for the massive expansion of federal programs she wants to make law will be hindered by finite amounts of cash available. Here’s more from TheBlaze: Warren made the comments during an interview in November with Lily Eskelsen Garcia, president of the National Education Association. Garcia had asked Warren about increasing funding for Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act and the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act, and how that might be paid for. “So the answer is yes. And pay for it? This is about our priorities, what matters most to us,” Warren answered. “A budget is about priorities. … The way I see it, there’s always, come on, there’s always money. It’s there. Are we going to spend the money on defense or are we going to spend the money on our children?” https://youtu.be/X7PsSTivy1E Warren’s approach to financial questions about her ambitious policies has been one of the biggest sources of criticism of her campaign. She has insisted, for example, that Medicare for All can be implemented without taxes being raised on middle class Americans, partially by reducing the amount of money allocated toward military spending. Most of the other Democratic candidates running for president have come out and criticized Warren for not being totally honest about where the money for her programs is going to come from. Warren has waved off these criticisms, saying they are just rehashing Republican talking points.
