When former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified to Congress under one of the six Republican investigations into the Benghazi attacks, she appeared for eight hours, answering Republicans’ questions. In his commentary Sunday, Rev. Al Sharpton speculated President Donald Trump probably couldn’t make it more than eight minutes.
Sharpton’s commentary section of his show specifically mentioned the president’s problems with corruption. After chanting, “Lock her up!” for four years, it was discovered that Trump’s own Justice Department found that Clinton did nothing illegal in any of the conspiracy theories he and his supporters could drum up.
“And who could forget Clinton testifying for over eight hours about Benghazi? I, for one, have my doubts the current president would last eight minutes testifying before anyone,” said Sharpton. “But then again, unlike Clinton, your president is constantly committing actual crimes. So, the next time you want to chant something at a rally for your dear leader, maybe rethink the lyrics.”
He then proposed some options.

White House adviser warned colleagues Nancy Pelosi would eventually bring Trump down: ‘She’s an assassin’
In an excerpt from the new book "A Very Stable Genius," former Donald Trump adviser Steve Bannon predicted that now-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi would eventually attempt to bring the president down one way or the other.
According to Axios, the book states, "The night of January 23 , the first Monday of his presidency, Trump came face?to?face with House and Senate leaders from both parties at a White House reception ...

‘Dopes and babies!’ Trump unleashed expletive-filled rant at military leaders after growing bored in Pentagon meeting: report
President Donald Trump erupted during a briefing intended to teach him the basic fundamentals of U.S. foreign policy -- and essentially ended any hope that he would ever learn them.
Six months into his presidency, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, Director of the National Economic Council Gary Cohn and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson were frustrated and alarmed by the gaps in Trump's knowledge of world affairs, and they scheduled a Pentagon briefing to catch him up, reported the Washington Post.
Rick Santorum flattened by CNN’s Berman after calling Parnas bombshell revelations ‘extraneous’ to impeachment
Rick Santorum and CNN's John Berman got into a frantic back-and-forth on Friday morning after the former Republican senator attempted to dismiss the revelations by former Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas as something that should not be submitted as evidence in the impeachment trial of Donald Trump.
Discussing the Senate trial expected to start next week, Santorum said the only testimony and witnesses that should be allowed are ones that came up in the earlier House hearings.
"The House's responsibility to bring to us a case," Santorum stated. "They're the one who is said these are offenses that are worthy of the president being removed from office; here is the record, here are the charges. The Senate didn't impeach, the House did, so we are going to look at the record the House presented us. We're going to look at the witnesses and say are there are questions that we have for the people that brought this case forward and relied on these witnesses and look at their testimony."
