Nicolle Wallace worries Republicans have had ‘lobotomies of their souls’

Published

MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace on Monday wondered how Republicans could possibly ignore the bombshell revelations in the public testimony and released transcripts that have emerged in the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

“Beginning tomorrow morning, we’ll see two first-hand witnesses to the July 25th call with the leader of Ukraine,” Wallace noted. Jennifer Williams, from the vice president’s staff, and Alexander Vindman — both have said they were concerned by what they heard.”

The host, who served as White House communications director in the George W. Bush administration, noted that both witnesses “have managed to get under the president’s skin.”

But it was the report that Trump doesn’t give a “bleep” about Ukraine that made Wallace wonder how Republicans could possibly respond.

“Just unbelievable that the picture’s so crystal clear,” Wallace noted. “I mean, what does Rob Portman (R-OH) and Richard Burr (R-NC), what do they stand up and say when they hear this?” Wallace asked.

MSNBC national affairs analyst John Heilemann asked her to clarify the question.

“Are you asking what they should say?” he asked. “Or asking what they are going to say?”

“I’m asking — if they haven’t had lobotomies of their souls and their consciences — what do they say when they hear that?”

Mitch McConnell may let Republicans write Senate impeachment rules without Democratic votes

Published

on

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is plotting to shut out Democrats on impeachment if a bipartisan compromise on rules for the trial can't be reached.

The Kentucky Republican said this week that he hopes to reach an agreement on rules for the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, but he's also readying a "backup plan" in case he can't reach an agreement with Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, reported Vanity Fair.

“The first thing Sen. Schumer and I will do is see if there’s a possibility of agreement on a procedure,” McConnell said. “That failing, I would probably come back to my own members and say, ‘Okay, can 51 of us agree how we’re going to handle this?’”

Fresno Bee burns Nunes to the ground in scathing editorial

Published

on

The editorial board of the Fresno Bee has written a scathing takedown of Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) for his extraordinary fealty to President Donald Trump, which the editors say is harming the country.

Specifically, the editorial accuses Nunes of forsaking his oath of office as a congressman to serve as Trump's most loyal toady on the House Intelligence Committee.

"As has been true for nearly all of Trump’s first term, Nunes has relinquished his proper role as an independent representative of Congress and has instead acted like a member of the Trump 2020 re-election team," the editorial states.
