Mitt Romney: GOP senators ‘increasingly likely’ to call John Bolton to testify in impeachment trial

Published

John Bolton’s book bombshell may have broken President Donald Trump’s grip on the Republican Party.

The former national security adviser’s forthcoming book “The Room Where It Happened” claims Trump explicitly tied Ukraine aid to an investigation of Joe Biden, and GOP senators are publicly saying they want him to testify during the impeachment trial.

“I think it’s increasingly likely that other Republicans will join those of us who think we should hear from John Bolton,” said Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT).

Romney and other Republicans voted to table a Democratic amendment last week, at the start of the trial, that would have added new testimony to the impeachment process — but Bolton’s revelations may force them to call witnesses.

Trump falsely claimed Monday morning that House investigators never called Bolton to testify.

New polling from the progressive pollster Data for Progress, described in a new piece Monday at Vox, points the way forward for Democrats looking to oust President Donald Trump from the White House and enact a liberal policy agenda.

Progressives often argue that their plans are broadly popular with Americans, and that these ideas are only prevented from becoming reality because of an obstinate Republican Party weaponizing racism and misinformation, archaic political institutions that stymie significant efforts at reform, and corruption across the two parties that allows special and corporate interests to undermine the popular will. And there is a fair amount of truth in this idea — some progressive idea are remarkably popular, and there's no good reason they haven't been implemented yet.

US economy faces long-lasting damage from Trump’s trade war: fed official

Published

The trade conflict of the past two years likely left a mark on the US economy, even with the recent agreement to defuse the situation, a Federal Reserve official said Monday.

The outbreak of the new coronavirus in China adds another risk factor to the outlook, which otherwise seemed poised to provide steady growth, said Loretta Mester, president of the Federal Reserve's regional bank in Cleveland.

"At this point, it is difficult to assess the magnitude of the economic effects, but this new source of uncertainty is something I will be carefully monitoring," she said of the epidemic.
