President Donald Trump has apparently “blocked” one of his Republican challengers on Twitter.
On Tuesday, Trump bullied his GOP rivals on Twitter, declaring, “I should be able to take them.”
….Another is a one-time BAD Congressman from Illinois who lost in his second term by a landslide, then failed in radio. The third is a man who couldn’t stand up straight while receiving an award. I should be able to take them!

One of the people mentioned by the commander-in-chief was former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL).
But Walsh couldn’t see it, because he’d been “blocked” by Trump on Twitter.
“Luckily Trump hasn’t blocked my team (yet) or I wouldn’t have known the madman in the White House is taking shots at me,” Walsh tweeted.
A federal judge ruled Trump was violating the First Amendment by blocking people on Twitter. That decision was unanimously upheld by a three-judge appeals court panel. But Trump has refused to comply with the court order while appealing.
Walsh vowed a change of policy if he’s the next president.
“As President, I’ll never block the American people on Twitter. That’s nuts,” he said.
Luckily @realDonaldTrump hasn’t blocked my team (yet) or I wouldn’t have known the madman in the White House is taking shots at me.
1. As President, I’ll never block the American people on Twitter. That’s nuts.

Impressive. Joe Walsh has already gotten under Donald Trump's skin. Two days after Walsh announced, Trump's blocked him on Twitter. Fortunately the rest of us can read Joe at @WalshFreedom, and you can help him if you wish at https://t.co/tuRuC9LKAX.

GOP’s Collins demands delay in impeachment hearing after being overwhelmed with Dem’s massive case against Trump
Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) has demanded that Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) postpone a scheduled House Judiciary Committee hearing slated for Monday after being blindsided by a massive report from the Democrats on the committee making the case for the impeachment of President Donald Trump.
According to Newsmax, Collins -- who has become one of the president's main surrogates opposing ouster of the president -- fired back at the Democrats over their Saturday release of thousands of pages of documents to be considered from the House impeachment investigation.
