West Virginia Democrats call for resignation or firing of DNC head Wasserman Schultz

Published

At a meeting on Saturday, attendees at the West Virginia State Democratic convention voted unanimously to call for either the resignation or firing of Democratic National Committee head Debbie Wasserman Schultz, report The Hill.

Wasserman Shultz’s tenure at the DNC has been a major topic of conversation as the primary election season has come to an end, with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders reportedly working on her ouster in his negotiations with rival Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

In the West Virginia resolution, Wasserman Shultz was criticized for what delegates termed “dissension and disarray in the Party.”

The resolution noted Wasserman Shultz has overseen the “worst electoral defeat in decades, “adding that the party “has lost more state legislative races than at any time since 1928.”

The Florida congresswoman was dinged for her management of the Democratic primary debate schedule and for “creating the perception in the public eye of favoring one candidate over others, which results in lowering trust in the Democratic Party.”

West Virginia Democrats also called for either elimination of superdelgates by the 2020 election or linking their votes to the results of state elections.

"The attorney general, from the moment he walked into this job, has behaved in a -- as a ruthless, relentless political hack and a thug and who has behaved not as attorney general of the United States," Heilemann said.

"He made a travesty of the Mueller report and continues to lie on Donald Trump's behalf at every opportunity," he added.

Trump welcomed Russia’s Sergey Lavrov to the White House — to humiliate us all

Published

on

Despite the fact that President Donald Trump still refuses to have Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Washington for an officials meeting — a topic at the center of the scandal driving Trump’s impeachment — the White House hosted Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Monday.

And while Lavrov was honored with his second private Oval Office meeting (the first one was a cataclysmic disaster) and a press conference with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the foreign minister took his opportunity here to repeatedly humiliate the United States.

United States, Mexico, Canada finalize Donald Trump’s USMCA trade deal

Published

on

The United States, Mexico and Canada signed a deal Tuesday to finalize their new trade agreement, paving the way to ratification after more than two years of arduous negotiations.

However, the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump in the US Senate would likely delay Congressional ratification of the agreement until next year, said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

In reality, it is the second time the three countries have triumphantly announced the conclusion of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), the deal meant to replace the 25-year-old NAFTA, which President Donald Trump complains has been "a disaster" for the US.
