Republican Senators Exercise Selective Outrage At Trump's Impeachment Trial - 25 Jan 2020 at 3:30pm -

The third day of Donald Trump's impeachment trial once again featured Republican senators competing with each other to see who could show the most disdain for the idea of their constitutional duty and the oath they took to provide impartial justice. Sen. Marsha Blackburn, a Tennessee Republican, apparently felt one-upped by the odious Martha McSally of Arizona in the race to be Trump's favorite woman senator, so she stepped up her game by maligning decorated American combat veteran Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who still serves in uniform and who has been subject to threats of violence since he testified in the House impeachment investigation.

Sen. Tim Kaine Shot Down Trump Team?s Bogus Ukraine Arguments - 25 Jan 2020 at 3:28pm -

Speaking to reporters today after Team Trump concluded its first day of opening arguments in the impeachment trial, Senator Tim Kaine concisely outlined Trump?s suspicious behavior around the withholding of Ukraine aid ,and then pointed out that by defending it, his defenders had just made the case for hearing witnesses and seeing documents even stronger.

SEN KAINE: I don't think the White House pokes holes in the Democratic case. I do think they put assertions on the table that they think poke holes in the case. But those assertions, you can't just take the lawyers' word for it. The assertions have to be proven. Some of the assertions they made, they were artful and lawyerly but we know them to be false.

So let me give you an example: Jay Sekulow says well, the president paused aid to other countries. That's true. But when he went through the examples, he paused aid to the northern tribal countries and he announced he was doing it. He paused aid to Lebanon and announced he was doing it. I believe there's only one instance where President Trump paused aid to a country, in this case Ukraine, and hid it from Congress. He hid it from Congress in violation of the Impoundment Control Act, he hid it from Congress by not turning the whistleblower complaint over.

Laurence Tribe: GOP Is Afraid Of The Truth Or They'd Allow Witnesses - 25 Jan 2020 at 1:22pm -

On MSNBC today, Laurence Tribe discussed the ?surreal? aspects of the Trump impeachment trial. ?Every day new stuff comes out. It all confirms what we pretty much know,? he said, meaning we know that Trump ?shook down Ukraine? and was ?trying to cheat in the election.? The only real mystery is what happens as a result.

The other surreal aspect is that Trump is trying to block witnesses from testifying by threatening to claim executive privilege. ?He's saying, you know, your second article of impeachment claims that I am obstructing Congress. Well, I dare you to try to get witnesses because I am going to obstruct Congress,? Tribe said.

Tribe predicted that Trump?s lawyers will ?deny, distract, delude, dissemble? in their trial presentations, rather than ?putting on a real case.?

There?s only one reason for avoiding a ?real case," i.e. one with documents and witnesses, and that?s fear of the facts.

What Just Went Down - 25 Jan 2020 at 12:31pm - President Trump's defense opened Saturday with a swift 2-hour session that crammed everything but the kitchen sink into an argument that was designed first and foremost to undermine Adam Schiff's reliability as a narrator. In a stinging irony, the White House lawyers maintained a sustained attack on the House managers for, of all things, hiding evidence.

Schiff: Trump's Helsinki Treason Summit With Putin Was 'An Intelligence Coup'... - 25 Jan 2020 at 11:00am -

I've been waiting for a long time for someone to reach back to that disastrous Helsinki press conference where the so-called president stood side-by-side with Vladimir Putin and denied his own intelligence services in favor of Putin's talking points and tie it to his corrupt behavior in Ukraine. Rep. Adam Schiff definitely packed it in a neat package and tied it up with an ugly bow.

After playing the clip of Trump blaming both sides for Russia's election hacking, Schiff unpacked it. The transcript is below, but really, just watch it because you can't capture the passion and disgust without hearing him.

Andrew Napolitano: Impeached Trump Should Be Removed From Office - 25 Jan 2020 at 9:30am -

Fox News ?senior judicial analyst? Andrew Napolitano saved his recommendation for the end but his FoxNews.com column asking, ?What does it take to remove a president?? after impeachment, makes it very clear that Trump has ?amply? qualified.

Napolitano, who has been noticeably absent from Fox?s on-air coverage of Trump?s impeachment trial, openly contradicted Fox?s ?nothing to see here? messaging: ?His trial is not a charade or a joke or a hoax. It is deadly serious business based on well-established constitutional norms," Napolitano wrote in his column.

Napolitano went on to note that that Government Accountability office concluded Trump ?acted unlawfully? when he asked the president of Ukraine for a favor. ?But did he act criminally?? Napolitano asked.

The answer is an unequivocal ?yes.?

'Cruelty Is The Point': Trump Wants Medicaid Block Grants - 25 Jan 2020 at 8:00am -

The Trump administration is reportedly planning to intensify its assault on Medicaid by granting certain states permission to convert federal funding for the program into block grants, a move critics slammed as a cruel and likely illegal attack on vulnerable people.

Politico reported Thursday that the plan, which could be finalized as early as next week, would allow the 37 states that expanded Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act to seek waivers to convert funding into fixed sums that could limit states' flexibility to increase spending in response to public need.

Block-granting Medicaid is a longtime Republican goal dating back at least to the Reagan administration. The Trump administration's proposal has been in the works for over a year.

Inside The Chamber During Schiff?s Closing - 24 Jan 2020 at 9:59pm -

Jerry Moran (R-KS), who was watching from a public balcony with a guest).

Keep An Eye On This - 24 Jan 2020 at 1:09pm -

News is out this morning that there's a tape recording of President Trump ordering the firing of Marie Yovanovitch. On its face this doesn't tell us dramatically more than we already know. The April 2018 dinner in question, where Lev Parnas and his business partner Igor Fruman met the President, has been reported on extensively. Even the gist of the conversation has been reported. Obviously the existence of a tape adds some punch and drama. But that's not the real significance.

Where Things Stand: Now On To Obstruction - 24 Jan 2020 at 10:42am -

House impeachment managers will spend their third day in the spotlight arguing that President Trump obstructed Congress by stonewalling congressional investigators' requests for documents and witness testimony while the House was conducting its impeachment inquiry. At the end of the day, the baton will be tossed to Trump's legal team, who will begin their opening arguments on Saturday. The ever ratings-obsessed Trump is reportedly not happy that his lawyers' first stab at his defense is taking place over the weekend, rather than during the week. Here's more on that and other stories we're following:
