Fox News reporter Peter Doocy was floored after President Donald Trump’s bill failed to score more votes than the Democrats’ bill in the Republican Senate.
Sens. Lamar Alexander (R-TN), Susan Collins (R-ME), Cory Gardner (R-CO), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Johnny Isakson (R-GA), Mitt Romney (R-UT) all supported the Democrat’s plan, which was presumably an unexpected outcome. The president’s measure also wasn’t supported by Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Tom Cotton (R-AR), but they failed to vote for the Democratic proposal as well.
The procedural vote needed 60 senators to support but only garnered 52. If Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) brought the bill to the floor, it would have passed and the shutdown would have ended. Instead, it heads into the 35th day.
Doocy showed video of Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) saying that the one good thing the vote did is show the president that his idea is not a popular one, even among his own party.
“We have no idea what comes next,” said. Doocy

DOJ policy blocking Trump from being indicted ‘factored into’ the end of the Stormy Daniels case: report
Federal prosecutors decided to close the investigation into the 2016 criminal hush money payment to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal that benefitted the Trump campaign because, in part, of the policy that prevents the indictment of a sitting president, according to a new report from USA Today citing an anonymous source.
Michael Cohen has already pleaded guilty to the violation of campaign finance law. He said that he carried out the effort in coordination with and at the direction of then-candidate Donald Trump in order to increase his chances of victory in the 2016 presidential election.

Trump’s Pentagon spokeswoman forced staff to run errands — and even help her adopt a foster child: report
On Thursday, the Department of Defense Inspector General released a scathing report on ex-Pentagon spokesperson Dana White, the result of an investigation that began last year following ethics complaints from her staff.
The IG concluded that White used federal staffers to help her run personal errands both during and outside of work hours. Officials were forced to book her personal travel, deliver lunch and snacks to her office, act as her chauffeur, handle her dry cleaning, and book a makeup artist to come to her house.
