This Tuesday, Democrats released a 300-page report detailing evidence from the House’s impeachment inquiry. According to the report’s executive summary, President Trump’s “scheme subverted U.S. foreign policy toward Ukraine and undermined our national security in favor of two politically motivated investigations that would help his presidential reelection campaign.”
Washington Post reporter Aaron Blake highlighted one key aspect from the report in a tweet shortly after its release.
“Defense Secretary Mark Esper is withholding the 2 emails which Laura Cooper said described Ukraine asking about military assistance as of July 25, per this House Dem report,” Blake tweeted.

As the report states, Defense Secretary Mark Esper still hasn’t handed over documents that detail emails sent to Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Russian, Ukrainian, and Eurasian affairs, Laura Cooper, about the Ukrainian government inquiring about military aid allegedly held up by the Trump administration in an attempt to get Ukraine to investigate President Trump’s political rivals.

CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale provided a brutal dose of reality after President Donald Trump constantly mislead Americans with his false claims during the first 2020 general election presidential debate.
CNN's Wolf Blitzer introduced Dale by recapping that, in his opinion, "clearly this debate was an embarrassment for the United States of America -- a clear embarrassment."
"How much was fact?" Blitzer asked. "How much was false?"
"Well, it depended Wolf on who we were listening to," Dale replied.
"I think it's important for us as journalists to say when both sides are not alike -- and they were not alike tonight," he explained.

"Number two, the president of the United States refused to condemn white supremacy," he continued.

Jake Tapper stunned by Trump’s debate: ‘That was a hot mess inside a dumpster fire inside a train wreck’
CNN Jake Tapper reacted in shock on Tuesday following the first presidential debate between Democratic nominee Joe Biden and President Donald Trump.
"That was a hot mess inside a dumpster fire inside a train wreck," Tapper said. "That was the worst debate I have ever seen. In fact, it wasn't even a debate. It was a disgrace."
"And it's primarily because of President Trump," he remarked, "who spent the entire time interrupting, not abiding by the rules that he agreed to, lying, maliciously attacking the son of the vice president. When asked to condemn white supremacists, he brought up the name of a neo-fascist, far-right group and said, 'Stand back and stand by.'"
