Commenting on the recent massacre in Las Vegas, President Donald Trump on Tuesday vowed that he would reexamine gun safety laws “as time goes by.”

“Look, we had a tragedy,” Trump opined from the White House lawn. “What happened is in many ways a miracle. The police department has done an incredible job.”

“And we’ll be talking about gun laws as time goes by,” the president said with a dismissive wave of his hand.

Trump went on to say that his administration’s hurricane recovery efforts had been “just as good” in Puerto Rico as they had been after an earlier hurricane in Florida.

And then the subject turned back to the Las Vegas shooting.

“He was a sick man, a demented man,” Trump said of the suspected shooter. “A lot of problems, I guess. We’re looking into him very seriously.”

Evangelical activist Franklin Graham, who is closely tied to President Donald Trump, is once again defending the Commander-in-Chief, and once again is twisting truth into a prayerful pretzel to do so.

This may be the most consequential week yet in the 146 week-long presidency of Donald Trump.

Starting Wednesday the House Intelligence Committee will hold open hearings for three administration officials who are expected to testify on live television across major cable news channels and broadcast networks that the President of the United States of America engaged in a systematic and sustained effort of extortion and bribery in an attempt to force a U.S. ally to manufacture false evidence against his top political opponent.

Republicans’ betrayal of America sinks to new depths as the impeachment hearings go public

Published

on

The House is set this week to begin the first in a series of impeachment hearings. As we listen to testimony and consider the facts, we should bear in mind the big picture.

So far, the focus is rightly on Donald Trump’s extortion—the correct legal term—of Ukraine’s president, Volodymyr Zelensky, for personal political gain. Our attention is on his warping of American foreign policy, putting the service of our national interests below his own. That alone is an abuse of power that the framers themselves thought was worthy of indictment by a majority of the the US House of Representatives.
