HOUSE OF REPS/KURDS/MILITARY/SANCTIONS/SYRIA/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/TURKEY: “The House voted overwhelmingly on Tuesday [10-29-19] to impose a series of sweeping sanctions on Turkey over its brutal assault on the Kurds in northern Syria, dealing its second bipartisan rebuke to President Trump this month for pulling back American forces to allow for the Turkish incursion. The measure drew broad support from Republicans, including the party’s leaders, underscoring how Mr. Trump’s decision to effectively surrender American influence in the region and abandon Kurdish fighters has provoked the most vocal and intense criticism of the president by his own party since he was elected. The vote was 403 to 16, with 15 Republicans and one Democrat, Representative Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, voting against the legislation. This month, two-thirds of House Republicans joined with Democrats to censure his withdrawal of troops from Syria in a 354 to 60 vote. It was, at the time, the most significant bipartisan repudiation of Mr. Trump since he took office.”

HOUSE OF REPS/IMPEACHMENT/JUSTICE DEPARTMENT/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “The Justice Department won’t have to give the House of Representatives secret details from the Mueller criminal investigation for use in its impeachment probe this week, a federal appeals court said Tuesday [10-29-19]. But it’s not clear yet how long that deadline to turn over the information will stay on hold. The case over the grand jury secrets has become one of several ongoing separation of powers court battles, all of which are testing whether the Trump administration or President Donald Trump himself can stonewall the House as it collects evidence and considers impeaching the President. So far, the administration has been successful in delaying the House probe by holding up testimony from witnesses, Trump financial document subpoenas and even the Mueller grand jury information-sharing. Yet federal judges have roundly shot down the administration’s arguments so far, repeatedly saying the House deserves the information it says it needs.”

DEMS/HOUSE OF REPS/IMPEACHMENT/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Democratic lawmakers on Wednesday [10-30-19] will begin building a formal political process designed to impeach a President — a momentous task attempted only three times before in nearly two and a half centuries of US history. The Democratic-led House Rules Committee will sit at 3 p.m. ET to consider a resolution on the scope and regulations of an inquiry into whether President Donald Trump misused his authority by seeking political favors from Ukraine. The meeting, ahead of an expected full House vote Thursday, is the first time the Democratic majority will go on the record in their attempt to oust the President — and is also the first step toward open hearings. It could pave the way for the impeachment of Trump by the end of the year. A formal path toward that outcome would add perhaps the only missing element of drama to a political era that has seen a President consciously tear at the country’s long-accepted political and legal norms, leaving his opponents puzzled about the best way to restrain him.”

DEMS/HOUSE OF REPS/INVESTIGATIONS/TRUMP BUSINESS: “Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.), chairman of the House committee that oversees federal buildings, threatened today to subpoena the General Services Administration if the agency does not hand over documents related to the Trump Hotel by next week. DeFazio’s committee, the House Transportation Committee, has been investigating the federal government’s lease of the Old Post Office Building for the Trump International Hotel. In a letter to GSA, DeFazio and Rep. Dina Titus (D-Nev.), who chairs the subcommittee with jurisdiction, say the agency has failed to provide certain financial documents and made false claims of attorney client and deliberative process privileges for legal records…DeFazio has argued that because the lease prohibits elected officials from benefiting, and President Donald Trump has not separated himself from his investments, he has breached the lease’s terms and may be violating the emoluments clauses of the Constitution.”

AMBASSADOR/EU/HOUSE OF REPS/INVESTIGATIONS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/TRUMP PEOPLE/UKRAINE: “Gordon Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the European Union, bolstered Democrats’ impeachment inquiry Thursday [10-17-19] as he broke sharply from President Donald Trump in testimony before House investigators. During nearly nine hours of testimony, Sondland said he reluctantly indulged what he described as the president’s efforts to run Ukraine policy through his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani. He indicated that he opposed Trump’s orders to reach out to Giuliani, who was pushing the Ukrainian government to investigate Trump’s political rivals..In his closed-door testimony, Sondland said he contacted Giuliani anyway at Trump’s direction after a May 23 meeting at the White House, and that Giuliani drew a direct link between scheduling a White House visit for Ukraine’s newly elected president and demands that Ukraine prioritize investigations targeting Trump’s political opponents, including former Vice President Joe Biden.”

HOUSE OF REPS/NANCY PELOSI/SYRIA/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Democratic leaders cut short a meeting with Republican President Donald Trump after he had a ‘meltdown’ over a House of Representatives vote condemning his Syria withdrawal and showed no signs of having a plan to deal with a crisis there. Trump called Pelosi a ‘third-rate politician’ and the meeting in the White House deteriorated into a diatribe, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer told reporters…Trump posted on Twitter on Wednesday [10-16-19] night – ‘Nervous Nancy’s unhinged meltdown!’ with a photo of Pelosi standing up and pointing at him during the meeting. The Democrats exited the meeting complaining that they were expecting to hear Trump provide details on a plan for dealing with an unfolding ‘crisis’ in Syria but instead were subjected to ‘derogatory’ language from him about congressional Democrats and Democratic former President Barack Obama.”
