ASSASSINATION/DEMS/IMPEACHMENT/IRAN/MILITARY/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “The United States and Iran exchanged escalating military threats on Friday [1-3-20] as President Trump warned that he was ‘prepared to take whatever action is necessary’ if Iran threatened Americans and Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, vowed to exact vengeance for the killing on Mr. Trump’s order of Iran’s most valued general. Although the president insisted that he took the action to avoid a war with Iran, the continuing threats further rattled foreign capitals, global markets and Capitol Hill, where Democrats demanded more information about the strike and Mr. Trump’s grounds for taking such a provocative move without consulting Congress. Democrats also pressed questions about the attack’s timing and whether it was meant to deflect attention from the president’s expected impeachment trial this month in the Senate.”

IMPEACHMENT/SENATE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Senate leaders wrangled on Friday [1-3-20] over the terms of President Trump’s impeachment trial, deepening their impasse and throwing the start date further into doubt amid disputes over whether to call witnesses or introduce documentary evidence. In a pair of barbed back-to-back speeches on the Senate floor, the top Republican and the top Democrat traded charges of hypocrisy and unfair dealing, settling nothing in the high-stakes fight over the shape of the constitutional proceeding that will decide Mr. Trump’s fate. The feuding on the first day of a new legislative session indicated that two weeks of holiday respite had done little to break a logjam that began late last year when Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that she would not transmit two impeachment articles approved by the Democratic-led House to prompt the start of a trial until the Senate agreed to a fair process.”

GOP/IMPEACHMENT/SENATE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “The U.S. Senate remained at a stalemate on Friday [1-3-20] over how to proceed with the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, as the chamber’s leaders wrangled over whether White House aides will be called as witnesses and the top Democrat appealed to a handful of Republicans who could help break the impasse. After a two-week holiday recess, there was still no clarity about when Trump’s impeachment trial might begin. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican, said that in any case the trial could not start without the articles of impeachment, which House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has not yet sent to the Senate. The Democratic-controlled House of Representatives voted in December to impeach Trump for pressuring Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, a potential rival in the 2020 presidential election.”

IMPEACHMENT/MITCH MCCONNELL/SENATE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “The standoff that’s placed President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial in limbo is entering a new critical juncture as both sides angle to wring political benefit from the proceedings. Greater clarity of the future of Trump’s impeachment could be derived Friday when the US Senate reconvenes and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is likely to speak on the floor. But the prospects for any answers on when the trial will begin or what its parameters might be appear slim. McConnell’s speech will mark a return to the impeachment saga after two weeks of relative quiet, where little was learned about how and when Trump’s trial would begin even as more details about his administration’s attempts to withhold aid to Ukraine were revealed. McConnell hasn’t spoken to either of his Democratic counterparts, Sen. Chuck Schumer or House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, people familiar with the lack of conversations said.”

GOP/IMPEACHMENT/SENATE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/TRUMP PEOPLE: “The Republican businesswoman who will soon become Georgia’s newest U.S. senator said Thursday [1-2-20] she plans to vote against removing President Donald Trump from office. Kelly Loeffler is scheduled to be sworn in when the Senate convenes Monday in Washington. Her first vote she casts as a senator could come at the conclusion of Trump’s impeachment trial on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Trump is expected to be acquitted by the GOP-controlled Senate , where a two-thirds vote is necessary for conviction. On social media and in a recent newspaper op-ed column, Loeffler has criticized impeachment proceedings in the Democrat-controlled House as a ‘sham,’ a ‘sideshow’ and a “distraction.” Speaking to reporters Thursday after a tour of the Port of Savannah, she confirmed that she intends to vote “No” on removing Trump from office.”

CAMPAIGN FINANCE/ELECTION/IMPEACHMENT/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign raised $46 million in the fourth quarter of 2019, a major haul that was boosted by a surge of donations in the wake of the Democrats’ impeachment bid, a senior campaign official said on Thursday. The sum gives Trump a fundraising edge over a host of Democrats battling for their party’s nomination, with the first contest to be held in Iowa in little more than a month. The Democratic nominee will face Trump in the November election. The Trump campaign begins the 2020 re-election year with cash on hand of $102.7 million, the official told Reuters, an amount that will help his bid to compete in more states beyond those that carried him to his improbable victory in 2016. Speaking on condition of anonymity, the official said the campaign felt that Trump’s strong fundraising was a direct result of his decision to keep his campaign apparatus alive after taking office in January 2017.”

IMPEACHMENT/SUPREME COURT/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “As Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. prepares to preside over the impeachment trial of President Trump, he issued pointed remarks on Tuesday [12-31-19] in his year-end report on the state of the federal judiciary that seemed to be addressed, at least in part, to the president himself. The two men have a history of friction, and Chief Justice Roberts used the normally mild report to denounce false information spread on social media and to warn against mob rule. Some passages could be read as a mission statement for the chief justice’s plans for the impeachment trial itself…The nominal focus of the report was the importance of civics education, but even a casual reader could detect a timely subtext, one concerned with the foundational importance of the rule of law.”
