Pence is frantically running away from Trump on Ukraine: ‘Everyone is trying to get off the Titanic’

Published

Vice President Mike Pence is “trying to save himself” in the impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump’s administration illegally soliciting foreign assistance in the 2020 election, an MSNBC analyst explained on Saturday.

“I want to take a look at another character in this Ukraine controversy, and that being the vice president. NBC’s Vaughn Hillyard repeatedly pressed Pence on whether he knew about a link between the interest in investigating the Bidens and then that aid being held up for Ukraine,” MSNBC anchor Alex Witt said.

The clip showed Pence repeatedly dodging the question.

For analysis, Witt interviewed MSNBC commentator Alaina Beverly.

“Everyone’s trying to get off of the Titanic,” Beverly said. “That’s what I make of this.”

“If he answers the question and says that he knows and is aware of all of the details that were in that conversation between Trump and the president of the Ukraine, then he becomes a conspirator in this larger enterprise,” she explained. “So, I think Vice President Pence is trying to save himself, and that’s not unusual given the dominos that we’re seeing and the evidence that is mounting up against Donald Trump.”

I was an impeachment skeptic. Here’s why I’m now convinced Trump must be removed

Published

Despite all the uncertainty surrounding impeachment, we can capture the current moment succinctly: President Trump’s fate hinges on whether Republican senators are more fearful of losing in a primary or in the general election. Now that the live impeachment hearings are about to fuel nationwide prime-time programming, those senators’ fears are likely to intensify.

While that dynamic will determine whether Trump will be removed from office, it doesn’t tell us whether he should be.  I am generally an impeachment skeptic. My recent book—Impeaching the President: Past, Present, Future—argues that impeachment should be regarded as a last resort that, as a general proposition, is inappropriate in a president’s first term.  The American people are capable of rendering judgment and should be given the first crack.

House Republicans have 3 key defenses of Trump’s Ukraine extortion campaign — and they’re all terrible

Published

on

To any halfway objective observer, the first day of public hearings in House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry, which are ongoing as of this writing, have not gone well for Trump’s defenders.

Bill Taylor, the top US ambassador in Kyiv, and veteran State Department official George Kent came off as principled and non-partisan as they delivered damning testimony about the Trump regime’s multifaceted campaign to coerce the Ukrainian government to announce an investigation into fringe right-wing conspiracy theories designed to deflect blame for interfering in the 2016 election from Russia and onto Ukraine.

Progressives hilariously ridicule Donald Trump Jr.’s new book with their own Trump triggers #TriggerDonaldTrumpJr

Published

on

President Donald Trump's eldest child and namesake has published a book about liberals he says are "triggered" by conservatives. Ironically, it seems Donald Trump Jr. is the one who seems to be triggered by the reception he's getting from some on his book tour.

The hashtag, #TriggerDonaldTrumpJr has nothing to do with Jr's new book, rather it's progressives using his book title to mock the Trump child. Internet users were torn between mocking the young Trump for desperately trying to get his father's attention, scrambling to seem relevant, trying to launch his own political career, trying to make his own money and so much more.
