Big announcement expected from Senator Al Franken
Handle Jenkins reports from Washington, DC
“That is to take either two hours … or ten,” said the source.
Donald Trump Jr was planned Wednesday morning and maybe Wednesday evening to face the House Intelligence Committee in a closed-door session. Many reporters believed that the testimony of the son-the President can prove to be the marquee story of the day on Capitol Hill. The panel questioned Trump Jr, until shortly before 6 p.m. ET. But what happens outside of the safe to hear that the plant during the “sequestration” eclipsed everything that the son of the President, expressed in the interior.
Trump Jr arrived at the Capitol about a secret, underground loading ramp input with almost a quarter of a mile away from the house Intelligence Committee’s quarters. Not a news photographer captures a single image of the son of the President come and go. All were in for a long Stakeout in the Capitol visitor center basement, outside the Intelligence Committee.
Trump Jr testifies on the hill, GOP demand Clinton-probe
But the focus turns quickly, as it does so often these days.
Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, wants to try to accuse the President of the United States today?
Two Of The Indictment? “Unsuitable” for the presidency. Ok. Not A “High Crime.” But “Offense” under article II, section 4 of the Constitution.
But wait, there’s more.
This statement by sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii.
House votes overwhelmingly to table impeachment measure
Franken should resign?
Ok. Here’s a story requires the first democratic senator that sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., withdraw.
“I’ll give you a call on my colleague Al Franken to step aside. I struggled with this decision, because he was a good Senator, and I consider him a friend …”
You can keep it.
Gillibrand? Gillibrand also? Views on Twitter.
“While he is listening to is entitled to, an ethics Committee, I think he should resign…” tweeted sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-NY
More to follow in the condemnation of the Swiss franc. The dam will break.
It’s another day in Washington, as the message lands in a persistent finish-line-clip. Get used to it.
And back to Green. House reading clerk Susan Cole is articulate, his indictment, on the ground.
“..Trump had a public statement which is defamatory on professional football players as “sons of b-it-c-he-s’ therefore, you and your mothers…”
Here we go. A joint statement from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and house Minority whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., reads: “Legitimate questions have been raised about his suitability to lead this nation. … Now is not the time to consider indictment.”
The guide has a break. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., he is to move to table or kill the motion. The house vote on the submission of the Green articles. This is one step removed from actually voting on the indictment itself.
It works, and the house turns back to the article for now.
But what the government shutdown?
This threat is not gone yet.
“Democrats are really looking at something very dangerous for our country. You are looking down, they want illegal immigrants, in many cases, the people we don’t want that in our country,” says President of the Trump.
Will Pelosi and Schumer ditch the meeting on Thursday, as last week with Trump?
Pelosi: “President trump is the only person, talk, government shutdown.”
Oh Yes, and there is a gun bill. The house is adopted in the movement, a law to allow people with concealed carry permits and their weapons across state lines.
And Jerusalem! You move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
“We would be offended if some other country recognizes us and brings their message into Chicago. Israel has a right to declare its capital,” says Rep. Eliot Engel, the top Democrat on the house Foreign Affairs Committee.
And the tax! The Senate is going to vote to conference with the house on the tax bill.
The Senate insist on their amendments? Is as bare-knuckles as it seems?
Back to francs, who makes an announcement on Thursday in the midst of pressure from colleagues.
“It was to intensify a turning point for us,” said Hirono. “I had prepared a release.”
Reporter chase Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W. Va., a few steps down the subway tunnel, the path leads from the Capitol. Why have you not weighed in Swiss francs?
“We have a process here,” Manchin.
Almost forgot. Donald Trump Jr.
He is still in there? Has anyone see him?
No. He is simply gone.
