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

Published

on

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.”

Supreme Court Says No To Fast-Tracking Obamacare Decision; Pushes It Back Until Election Is Over

Published

on

The Supreme Court has decided they will not take up a challenge to Obamacare, opting instead to wait until after the 2020 presidential election is over before making any kind of decision on the issue. Part of the reason for the delay is that it removes pressure from Republicans and the current administration to cook up a backup proposal for the law. Here’s more from the Washington Examiner: The timeline removes the immediate threat that the whole law will be struck down, including its popular rules prohibiting insurers from turning away the sick, allowing President Trump to focus his attacks on Democratic proposals such as “Medicare for all.” It will also make it more difficult for Democrats to run on protecting Obamacare, a political strategy that has proved advantageous to them in the Trump era. The case in question, Texas v. Azar, is the result of a lawsuit by Republican state officials who said that Obamacare must be struck down on the grounds that it lost a critical component when the 2017 GOP tax overhaul zeroed out its fine on the uninsured. Republicans, who had the support of the Trump administration, said the fine had been central to Obamacare and that the rest of its provisions would not work and should not stand without it. Judge Reed O’Connor, who was appointed by President George W. Bush, agreed with the GOP states, but the case was appealed to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals. On Dec. 18, the appellate judges ruled 2-1 that the health insurance mandate was unconstitutional but that the rest of the law needed further analysis by the lower courts to see whether some parts could be separated out and others could not. Liberal states that are defending Obamacare had urged the Supreme Court to take up the…

Hollywood Actor Michael Douglas Announces Endorsement Of Michael Bloomberg

Published

on

Hollywood has become a central hub of left-wing Democratic Party activity, so it’s not exactly a shock when a major actor or celebrity comes out and endorses a Democratic candidate for president. In fact, it would be shocking to see the opposite occur, but honestly, given the obvious bias in the industry, there’s very little worry that would ever happen. Legendary actor Michael Douglas, most recently known for the role of Hank Pym in Marvel’s Ant-Man film series, has announced he’s backing former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg for president. Douglas made the announcement in a video released on Tuesday. Here’s more on this from Washington Examiner: “I feel so blessed that in this particularly difficult time that we have one of the greatest candidates in the history of our elections,” Douglas told People magazine, adding that he “hasn’t been this excited” about a presidential candidate since John F. Kennedy. The actor said he saw the addition of Bloomberg, 77, to the 2020 Democratic presidential primary as a “rare opportunity to coalesce and bring us back together, get rid of all this horrid, negative scare tactics that are going on, and the fact that he’s succeeded to the degree that he has is phenomenal.” At the conclusion of his endorsement, Douglas, who starred in films such as The American President, Fatal Attraction, and Ant-Man, called Bloomberg “a president America needs.” Bloomberg hasn’t been shy about making it clear he supports the removal of Donald Trump as the president under the impeachment charges brought against him by the House of Representatives. He clarified that he believes impeachment is very divisive, but “there’s just so much evidence that [Trump] acted inappropriately.” Democrats keep talking about all of the evidence that supports impeachment, but the question remains. Where’s it at?
