According to a source who listened in on the conference call on Friday, the plan is to “intended to increase the ‘officialness” of the ongoing probe, following a six-week summer recess in which some Democrats struggled to characterize to their constituents that the House had already begun impeachment proceedings.”

Among subjects that might be the focus of the proceedings, should they go forward, Politico reports, the Democratic-controlled House committee could be looking at “allegations that Trump directed hush money payments to women accusing him of extramarital affairs in the weeks before the 2016 election, as well as evidence that Trump has sought to steer U.S. and foreign government spending to his luxury resorts, raising questions about whether he has violated the Constitution’s Emoluments Clause.”

OANN anchor goes down in flames for reporting Christopher Columbus saved natives with Christianity

Published

One America News Network anchor Liz Wheeler took on history this week when she suggested that Christopher Columbus actually ended atrocities against Native Americans by bringing Christianity to America.

In a series of eye-popping tweets on Monday, Wheeler decided to celebrate Columbus Day by whitewashing the explorer's legacy.
