John Bolton thinks Democrats committed ‘impeachment malpractice’ by limiting scope of Trump trial

Published

on

The upcoming book written by former Trump national security adviser John Bolton will argue that President Donald Trump committed even more impeachable offenses than what had been documented in House impeachment hearings last year.

A press release issued by publisher Simon & Schuster for Bolton’s upcoming book, due to be released later this month, reveals that Bolton believes “the House committed impeachment malpractice by keeping their prosecution focused narrowly on Ukraine when Trump’s Ukraine-like transgressions existed across the full range of his foreign policy.”

The press release also claims that the Bolton book “documents exactly what those [transgressions] were, and attempts by him and others in the administration to raise alarms about them.”

Bolton infamously refused to voluntarily testify at the Senate impeachment trial earlier this year, even after the New York Times reported that the former national security adviser would claim in his book that Trump had directly linked withholding military aid to Ukraine with its willingness to launch an investigation into his top political rival.

After months of casting doubt about wearing masks, President Donald Trump on Monday emailed his supporters about the "confusion" on the subject.

In the email, Trump referred to COVID-19 as "the China Virus."

The first coronavirus hot spots in the country were densely-populated cities with international ports of entry, like New York City, San Francisco, and Seattle.

But the virus has now penetrated deep into rural areas around the country. And according to Politico, a new study has shed light on the catastrophic problems this has created for rural communities: more than half of U.S. rural communities have no ICU beds, forcing hospitals to transfer patients far away to other facilities that can accommodate severe COVID-19 cases.

Joy Reid medical expert blasts the president’s lies on coronavirus: ‘Trump needs to stay in his lane’

Published

on

MSNBC anchor Joy Reid interviewed Dr. Bernard B. Ashby about the latest coming from the White House on the coronavirus pandemic.

"If, for instance, you did not test for pregnancy, does it mean you are not pregnant?" Reid asked.

Ashby, a cardiologist from Miami, praised the anchor on her new primetime show, "The ReidOut," but did not directly answer the question.

"And in terms of the whole discourse, the fact that I'm having to respond to Trump about clinical medicine is ridiculous," Dr. Ashby explained.

"Trump needs to stay in his lane. Like, we went to medical school for a long time, we did training for a long time to speak on exactly what ... we have the expertise to speak on and the fact that Trump is asserting himself in academic medicine, into clinical medicine is ridiculous," he explained.
