ㅤ"Attention turned to a group of protesters in the arena who were holding up a banner that read, ‘Immigrants built America,’ which was torn up in a brawl that interrupted Trump’s speech for more than two minutes."

ㅤô¿ô …Correction. Immigrants who became part of the "melting pot" of American culture built America.

Trump says 'the witch hunt ends' after judge dismisses DNC lawsuit

ㅤ”Trump praised Judge John Koeltl, a Clinton appointee, who ruled that the Trump officials named in the lawsuit were shielded from the allegations under the First Amendment, and that Russia could not be sued in the courts for the election interference.
ㅤ’Wow! A federal Judge in the Southern District of N.Y. completely dismissed a lawsuit brought by the Democratic National Committee against our historic 2016 campaign for President,’ Trump tweeted, calling it ‘yet another total & complete vindication & exoneration from the Russian, WikiLeaks and every other form of HOAX perpetrated by the DNC, Radical Democrats and others.’
ㅤ’This is really big ‘stuff’ especially coming from a highly respected judge who was appointed by President Clinton,’ Trump added. ‘The Witch Hunt Ends!'”

Collins is first GOP senator to back bill requiring campaigns report foreign assistance offers to FBI

ㅤô¿ô …This isn’t a bad idea as long as the law applies to EVERYONE. The very fact that Republicans have introduced the bill suggests that the Dems benefit from foreign assistance more than the GOP. Not surprising since most of the Dems are communists.

Ex-Virginia governor: Trump could 'rob a bank' and Senate wouldn't convict him

ㅤ"Former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) said there’s no way the Republican-controlled Senate would impeach President Trump even if House Democrats started an inquiry.
ㅤ’The issue for Democrats is, are we going to spend all our time talking about impeachment, which we know they can’t get him in the Senate?’ McAuliffe said Sunday on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press.’
ㅤ’I mean, he could rob a bank and the Senate would not convict him. It doesn’t matter,’ he added.’"

ㅤô¿ô …I would have agreed with McAuliffe six months ago. But Trump’s popularity hasn’t significantly improved and time is running out. I think it’s possible that the Senate will leverage the threat of conviction to force Trump to drop out of the 2020 race. If Trump doesn’t back down, he’s gone.

House Republicans claim victory after Mueller hearings

ㅤ"Following former special counsel Robert Mueller’s roughly six hours of testimony on Capitol Hill, Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) — joined by House Intel Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), House Oversight Ranking Member Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and House Judiciary Ranking Member Doug Collins (R-Ga.) — said he doesn’t believe the President has done anything wrong.
ㅤ’For more than two years, Democrats have obsessed over the Mueller investigation, going so far as falsely claiming they have evidence of collusion, which we found not to be true today,’ McCarthy said at a press conference.
ㅤ’What we heard today only helped to reinforce the facts – that there was no collusion and no obstruction. It is well past the time to put this country first. The Democrats are more focused on bringing down the President, than they are in building up America.’"

Joy Behar: Why Can't Trump Be Brought Up on Charges of Hate Speech?

ㅤô¿ô …Geez I’m back after a two month vacation from politics and nothing has changed. The same big mouth morons. I can’t understand how any American could still stomach this crap. I might have to crawl back under a rock and not come out until the primaries get started.
