LIVE COVERAGE: Trump’s 2019 State of the Union address — and responses

Published

on

President Donald Trump is delivering his second State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress in the House of Representatives at 9 p.m. (ET) on Tuesday.

The president is expected to call for funding for his promised border wall. Trump has maintained there is a crisis at the country’s southern border.

A senior administration official told Reuters that Trump would also “encourage Congress to reject the politics of resistance and retribution, and instead adopt a spirit of cooperation and compromise so we can achieve it.”

After Trump’s address, former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams will deliver the Democratic response, while California Attorney General Xavier Becerra will deliver the Democrats’ Spanish language rebuttal.

Kamala Harris’s pre-buttle is below:

Congress should ask Mueller these specific questions about Trump’s involvement with Russia: Conservative columnist

Published

on

Conservative Never-Trump columnist Jennifer Rubin outlined the essential questions that Democrats should ask special counsel Robert Mueller in an op-ed for the Washington Post.

"Rather than engage in the normal scattershot questioning punctuated by speechifying, the House Judiciary Committee should assign its able attorney Norman Eisen to conduct the questioning," proposed Rubin. "Members could then follow up with additional questions.'
