Late Thursday, the House subpoenaed Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney to testify about his knowledge of President Donald Trump’s decision to withhold military aid to Ukraine. Mulvaney is a no show.

Now that Republicans got their wish for more transparency on the House hearings, they’re whining about them going public next week.

‘Yellicopter Presser’ on the White House lawn:

Trump hints that he may release another ‘transcript’ (memo) of his second or maybe first ‘perfect’ phone call with the president of Ukraine. He’s spinning.

The House will release transcripts of Fiona Hill and Lt Col Alexander S Vindman’s testimonies today.

Trump’s still holding his ‘Yellicopter Presser.’ More updates to follow. In the mean time, enjoy the video provided below.

    The House Democrats have considered drafting three articles of impeachment:

    1. Abuse of Power-for efforts to pressure the Ukrainian government to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden’s family and the 2016 election
    2. Obstruction of Justice-centered on the president’s efforts to obstruct former special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
    3. Contempt of Congress for defying congressional subpoenas

  • Oxymoron alert: Gym Jordan moves to House Intelligence Committee

    It’s official.  Gym Jordan will replace Congressman Rick Crawford on the House Intelligence Committee.

    Republican leaders in the House are hoping that Jordan can bring his combative questioning style to the first open hearings in the impeachment inquiry held by the Intelligence Committee next week.

    “Democrats have turned the Intelligence Committee into an impeachment committee,” a senior Republican aide told CBS News earlier this week. “We are interested in putting together the best team.”
