CONGRESS/DEMS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “‘It isn’t often I get angry at the dirty politics of the Democrats in Congress, but this time I am enraged and hope this impeachment charade will backfire on Reps. Pelosi & Schiff, & the Democrats. I have read thoroughly the telephone conversation between Trump & the President…”

CONGRESS/DEMS/NANCY PELOSI/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Nancy Pelosi today, on @GMA, actually said that Adam Schiffty Schiff didn’t fabricate my words in a major speech before Congress. She either had no idea what she was saying, in other words lost it, or she lied. Even Clinton lover @GStephanopoulos strongly called her out. Sue her?”

CONGRESS/IMPEACHMENT/STATE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “The cryptically worded request marked urgent from the State Department’s independent watchdog set Congress on edge. The message, according to Steven A. Linick, the department’s inspector general, was that he needed to meet — and right away — with senior congressional staff members to give them copies of documents related to the State Department and Ukraine. He signaled that they could be relevant to the House investigation into whether President Trump pressured Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and his son Hunter Biden. Some Democrats prepared for an explosive revelation that might show top administration officials had tried to obstruct their work. Speaker Nancy Pelosi told lawmakers on a caucus conference call that news reports were confirming that the heart of the briefing was about the White House retaliating against State Department staff who complied with the investigation…There were more questions remaining than answers on Wednesday [10-2-19].”

CONGRESS/DEMS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/UKRAINE: “Rep. Adam Schiff illegally made up a FAKE & terrible statement, pretended it to be mine as the most important part of my call to the Ukrainian President, and read it aloud to Congress and the American people. It bore NO relationship to what I said on the call. Arrest for Treason?”

CONGRESS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/UKRAINE/WHISTLEBLOWER: “The Fake Whistleblower complaint is not holding up. It is mostly about the call to the Ukrainian President which, in the name of transparency, I immediately released to Congress & the public. The Whistleblower knew almost nothing, its 2ND HAND description of the call is a fraud!”

BORDER/CONGRESS/FEDERAL FUNDING/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/WALL: “Congress voted on Friday [9-27-19] to terminate the national emergency that President Trump has declared at the southwestern border, delivering a bipartisan rebuke of his efforts to redirect federal money to a border wall without congressional approval. The resolution of disapproval — the second time in two months that Congress has rejected Mr. Trump’s scheme to allocate large sums for a border barrier over lawmakers’ objections — fell short of its goal. With only 11 Republicans joining House Democrats in supporting it, the measure did not draw the two-thirds majority that would have been needed to overcome a veto. The Senate, which passed the measure this week, also did not muster a veto-proof majority. But the action underscored the continuing struggle between Mr. Trump and Congress over his signature political promise and domestic priority, a symbol of an immigration agenda that has divided the country and the two political parties.”

CONGRESS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/UKRAINE/WHISTLEBLOWER: “Congress is in a sharply escalating standoff with the Trump administration over its refusal to share a whistle-blower complaint with lawmakers that is said to be at least in part about President Trump’s communications with Ukraine. The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Representative Adam B. Schiff, Democrat of California, has accused the acting director of national intelligence, Joseph Maguire, of violating the law by refusing to turn over the information to his panel, which conducts oversight of the intelligence community. But the Justice Department has said Mr. Maguire can lawfully keep it secret, according to his lawyer. Details about the complaint have nevertheless started trickling out, suggesting that it may center on efforts by Mr. Trump to use his official powers, like the ability to delay military aid, to coerce Ukraine into opening a criminal investigation into former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., the front-runner for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.”

CONGRESS/DEMS/JUSTICE DEPARTMENT/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/UKRAINE/WHISTLEBLOWER: “The U.S. House Intelligence Committee chairman on Thursday [9-19-19] accused the Justice Department of blocking intelligence officials from giving Congress a whistleblower complaint reported to involve communications between President Donald Trump and a foreign leader. The Washington Post, which first reported the matter, said the country involved was Ukraine, citing unnamed sources.The House panel’s Democratic chairman, Adam Schiff, charged the Trump administration with blocking a congressional inquiry after receiving a closed-door briefing from the inspector general for U.S. spy agencies. A source familiar with the matter told Reuters the whistleblower complaint at the center of the dispute alleged ‘multiple acts’ by Trump, not just a phone call with a foreign leader. The source requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue. Trump on Thursday called the Washington Post report ‘Fake News.’”
