How Nancy Pelosi is outplaying Trump on impeachment

Published

on

During a CNN “New Day” discussion on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) upbraiding a former Fox News reporter on Thursday for asking her if she hates Donald Trump, New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman explained that the California Democrat has been one step ahead of the president when it comes to the ongoing impeachment proceedings.

Before Haberman explained how Pelosi has been out-maneuvering the president, CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin praised Pelosi for her response to reporter James Rosen, now with Sinclair Broadcasting.

“‘Don’t mess with me,'” Toobin began, by quoting the House Speaker. “One of the many iconic Nancy Pelosi moments from this period. You know, it wasn’t that long ago when there was a rebellion in the House of Representatives to try to get a new Speaker of the House. She has so commanded this process and so much taken charge and so much become even more beloved.”

Haberman concurred after remarking, “One thing everybody forgets about Donald Trump, he won an election people predicted he wasn’t going to.”

“He has a political base, but he does not understand Washington, he still doesn’t understand Washington,” she continued. “And a lot of people around him don’t understand the nuances of Washington. Nancy Pelosi does — this is a process she knows how to navigate. It has been messy between what has happened with conflicts with [House Judiciary Democrat Jerry] Nadler.”

“She has found a way to do it without rocking the boat, and that is not nothing,” Haberman conceded.

Defense research scientist and genocide expert Brynn Tannehill laid out a terrifying warning on Thursday about President Donald Trump's administration.

As the United States Senate conducted an impeachment trial for the commander-in-chief, Tannehill posted an extended Twitter thread examining the situation in America from her perspective as a researcher studying the conditions that lead to genocide.

Here is what she wrote:

I study genocide. It's been a theme in my academic endeavours for nearly 30 years. More accurately, I study the conditions in the lead up to genocide, be they cultural, social, political, economic, etc... 1/n

Year of Rat hails easy ride for Donald Trump — but bumps for Harry and Meghan

Published

on

As the world prepares to welcome the Year of the Rat, feng shui masters predict a lucky year for Donald Trump, but warn Harry and Meghan's futures are less certain as they make a bid for freedom.

Both the US President and the Sussexes have begun 2020 with a bang.

The former is facing down an impeachment trial -- and seeking re-election in November -- while the latter are beginning a new chapter in Canada after consciously uncoupling from the gilded but pressured career of being a working British royal.

But if experts in the field of Chinese horoscopes are to be believed, it is the US president that will have the easier journey this year.

John Roberts caused a ‘crisis of democratic legitimacy’ — it’s ‘entirely fitting’ he has to preside over his mess: columnist

Published

on

Supreme Court Justice John Roberts was blasted in The Washington Post on Thursday for his culpability in creating the dynamics that resulted in President Donald Trump -- and his impeachment.

"There is justice in John Roberts being forced to preside silently over the impeachment trial of President Trump, hour after hour, day after tedious day," Dana Milbank wrote. "Roberts’s captivity is entirely fitting: He is forced to witness, with his own eyes, the mess he and his colleagues on the Supreme Court have made of the U.S. political system. As representatives of all three branches of government attend this unhappy family reunion, the living consequences of the Roberts Court’s decisions, and their corrosive effect on democracy, are plain to see."
