Trump and Ryan’s Venomous Spat Over Citizenship Intensifies

With only six days to go until the midterms, the last thing Paul Ryan wants to do is tick off POTUS.

Paul Ryan

With a massive migrant caravan forcing the issue to surface in an undeniable way, President Trump has been absolutely fervent regarding immigration as of late.

This should come as no surprise, however, for anyone who paid even the slightest semblance of attention to the 2016 election.  President Trump, then a candidate for the republican party, was the only candidate to come out and publicly verbalize the idea of creating a physical, all-encompassing deterrent to illegal immigration upon our southern border.  The idea was a huge hit with the GOP base, and likely propelled Trump to the presidency.

Now, after the President made the frankly-worrisome claim about using an executive order to amend the Constitution, Speaker of The House Paul Ryan has again vocalized his disapproval of The Donald’s rhetoric.

The amendment in question concerns birthright citizenship, and the President is fairly sure that Paul Ryan knows nothing about it.

President Donald Trump went after House Speaker Paul Ryan on Wednesday, saying one of the top Republican leaders in the President’s party “knows nothing about” birthright citizenship and “should be focusing on holding the Majority” in the House of Representatives “rather than giving his opinions” on the issue.

The comments come a day after Ryan threw cold water on the President’s assertion that he can use executive action to end the constitutional guarantee of citizenship to anyone born in the United States.
Ryan told a Kentucky radio station Tuesday that “you cannot end birthright citizenship with an executive order,” following remarks from the President indicating that Trump believes he can do just that, though many legal scholars disagree.
On Wednesday, the President tweeted, “Paul Ryan should be focusing on holding the Majority rather than giving his opinions on Birthright Citizenship, something he knows nothing about! Our new Republican Majority will work on this, Closing the Immigration Loopholes and Securing our Border!”
This episode of the spat comes just one day after several prominent leaders in DC, including Speaker Ryan, declined to accompany the President during his visit to the site of an antisemitic mass shooting that occurred over the weekend.

Sondland Says There Was a ‘Quid Pro Quo’ From Giuliani For White House Meeting

Published

During Wednesday’s impeachment hearing, Ambassador Gordon Sondland, a critically important witness due to his close contact with the president on Ukraine, testified in a front of a congressional committee and stated in his opening statement saying there was a indeed a quid pro quo presented by Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani to Ukraine involving a White House meeting and call. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: He also repeated that he “came to believe” the release of U.S. military aide to Ukraine was connected to the investigations, suggesting that he was not told so by the president. “I know that members of this committee have frequently framed these complicated issues in the form of a simple question: Was there a ‘quid pro quo?’” Sondland said Wednesday. “With regard to the requested White House call and White House meeting, the answer is yes.” In his opening statement Wednesday, Sondland underscored six key points, beginning with the role of Giuliani, with whom he said was directed by the president to work. “First, Secretary [Rick] Perry, Ambassador [Kurt] Volker and I worked with Mr. Rudy Giuliani on Ukraine matters at the express direction of the President of the United States,” said Sondland. “We did not want to work with Mr. Giuliani. Simply put, we played the hand we were dealt. We all understood that if we refused to work with Mr. Giuliani, we would lose an important opportunity to cement relations between the United States and Ukraine. So we followed the President’s orders.” Sondland went on to make it clear other officials were not quite comfortable to work with Giuliani, but “did not believe his role was improper at the time.” “Second, although we disagreed with the need to involve Mr. Giuliani, we did not believe that his role was improper at the time.…

The GOP Looking To Subpoena Hunter Biden, Ukraine Whistleblower, And DNC Files

The top member of the GOP sitting on the House Intelligence Committee crafted a letter and sent it to Chairman Adam Schiff asking that Hunter Biden, son of former Vice President and current presidential candidate Joe Biden, be subpoenaed, along with the whistleblower that kicked off this whole impeachment inquiry in the first place. Here’s more from Fox News: Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., along with Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, penned a scathing letter to Schiff in which they slammed the “sham ‘impeachment inquiry’” and notified the chairman of their intent to subpoena Biden and the whistleblower. Jordan, the ranking member of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, has been appointed as a temporary member of the House Intelligence Committee. “The American people understand how you have affirmatively prevented Republicans from examining serious issues directly relevant to the issues,” the two GOP lawmakers told Schiff in their letter. “Therefore, to provide some basic level of fairness and objectivity to your ‘impeachment inquiry,’ we intend to subpoena the anonymous whistleblower and Hunter Biden for sworn testimony in closed-door depositions.” Nunes and Jordan added that they plan to subpoena the whistleblower’s documents and communications regarding the complaint, the records surrounding Hunter Biden’s role on the board of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings and the Democratic National Committee’s communications with Ukrainian officials and records relating to Alexandra Chalupa. This letter is the second one to be sent from Nunes to Schiff, informing him of his intentions to call up the whistleblower and Hunter Biden. Earlier this month, Nunes sent out his first letter to Schiff about wanting to speak with those witnesses, however, it still remains to be seen how many of the individuals on the Republican Party’s list will actually be approved by Schiff. A resolution was recently passed that grants the…
