If Democratic investigations of Trump lead to impeachment, ‘that’s the place we have to go’: Nancy Pelosi

Published

on

In a conference call with House Democrats on Monday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) reportedly told her caucus that they should not rush into impeachment of President Donald Trump in the wake of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, and begin by pursuing additional investigations — but that if the facts of the investigation support impeaching the president, she would not stand in the way.

“We don’t have to go to articles of impeachment to obtain the facts, the presentation of facts,” Pelosi said. But, if impeachment was the “place the facts take us, that’s the place we have to go.”

Since Mueller’s report detailed compelling evidence that Trump may have committed obstruction of justice to bury the Russia investigation, several Democrats, including presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), have called for impeachment. Thus far, Pelosi and other Democratic leaders have resisted the idea of immediately pushing for that route.

Dr. Trump’s medicine show: Why is the president pushing an unproven drug? Follow the money

Published

Donald Trump only cares about Donald Trump. He doesn't care about you or the country. He only cares about exploiting this crisis to bail out his business and to get himself re-elected, thereby shielding himself from a series of indictments that surely await him if he loses. The sooner we embrace this easily-observable fact about Trump, the better equipped we'll be to evaluate his decisions during these overlapping health and financial calamities.

The "Trump is all about Trump" maxim goes a long way to explaining his obsessive beer-funneling of a malaria drug called hydroxychloroquine down the gullets of COVID-19 victims.

The New York Fire Department is struggling to make its way through the coronavirus crisis. Currently, 493 members of the NYFD have tested positive for COVID-19 and more than 3,000 are out sick.

Anthony Almojera, an EMS Lieutenant-paramedic for the FDNY told CNN Tuesday that he doesn't know how they're managing the constant influx of calls for help from New Yorkers.

"It's truly a testament to the EMS workers that we have here, the EMTs and medics," he told host Jim Sciutto. "It's pretty amazing to see how they're going out in spite of seeing all their co-workers get sick. It's frightening for a lot of us. We don't want to bring it home. We don't want to get sick with it but, you know, this is our job, we treat the sick and injured. We still have all of our regular 9-1-1 calls. It's truly a testament to the EMTs."

‘Can we get a refund?’ Trump flack Stephanie Grisham faces a landslide of mockery after her abrupt dismissal

Published

on

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham is reportedly being relieved of her duties after having gone a full ten months on the job without holding a single press briefing.

Given that Grisham hauled in a salary of $183,000 despite never actually appearing before reporters to answer questions, some Americans are asking if we can get a "refund" for her purported services.

Others, meanwhile, are simply happy to see her leave despite having rarely, if ever, seen her talk in public.
