Adam Schiff slaps aside CNN’s Tapper complaint that impeachment is partisan and puts it on the GOP

Published

on

Towards the end of a very long interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) easily dismissed concerns by the State of the Union host that the impeachment proceedings have all the appearances of being a partisan exercise — with the Intelligence Committee chairman turning the charge back on Republicans.

“Ultimately if only Democrats vote to impeach the president — president trump and republicans and maybe a couple of democrats do not vote to impeach him, vote against that, doesn’t that suggest that this is a partisan impeachment? won’t that hurt the credibility of the impeachment that only democrats vote to support?” Tapper asked.

“I think what it will mean, if we decide that we cannot accept this kind of conduct in the president of the united states, and the Republicans decide that because of the president’s party or because they’re afraid of a primary for whatever reason they cannot vote to support impeachment, I think it will mean a failure by the gop to put the country above their party, and it will have very long-term consequences,” he replied.

"He made a travesty of the Mueller report and continues to lie on Donald Trump's behalf at every opportunity," he added.

Published

on

Despite the fact that President Donald Trump still refuses to have Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Washington for an officials meeting — a topic at the center of the scandal driving Trump’s impeachment — the White House hosted Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Monday.

And while Lavrov was honored with his second private Oval Office meeting (the first one was a cataclysmic disaster) and a press conference with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the foreign minister took his opportunity here to repeatedly humiliate the United States.

United States, Mexico, Canada finalize Donald Trump’s USMCA trade deal

Published

on

The United States, Mexico and Canada signed a deal Tuesday to finalize their new trade agreement, paving the way to ratification after more than two years of arduous negotiations.

However, the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump in the US Senate would likely delay Congressional ratification of the agreement until next year, said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

In reality, it is the second time the three countries have triumphantly announced the conclusion of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), the deal meant to replace the 25-year-old NAFTA, which President Donald Trump complains has been "a disaster" for the US.
