Pelosi’s no fan of impeachment: Just ask Clinton and Bush

WASHINGTON (AP) — The day after Democrats swept to power, Speaker-to-be Nancy Pelosi stood before the cameras and declared impeachment was “off the table.” That was November 2006. More than a decade later, Pelosi, again facing a restive left flank but one ready to confront President Donald Trump, says she’s “not for impeachment.” It’s a […]

Pelosi On Impeachment: ‘Wasting Your Time’ Unless Convincing Enough For GOP

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) seemed unfazed by critics of her impeachment stance Tuesday, saying “you’re wasting your time, unless the evidence is so conclusive that the Republicans will understand.” “Otherwise, it’s a gift to the President,” Pelosi added to USA Today. “We take our eye off the ball.” She may be working off experience, having watched the impeachment proceedings of former President Bill Clinton, which resulted in Republicans losing House seats next election cycle and Clint...

Partisan polarization and America’s perpetually ballooning national debt

Last week, President Trump submitted his 2020 budget to Congress. It reflects familiar policy priorities. Recipients of food stamps, public housing, and Medicaid will have to show they are working or actively seeking work. (That standard already exists for federal welfare.)  Savings are asserted in Medicare and Social Security Disability programs from eliminating fraud and tougher negotiations on prescription drug prices. Money for EPA, climate change and renewable energy research, and the US di...

This Week: Manafort Faces More Prison Time, Indictment In New York

If last week saw Paul Manafort get off easy in a Virginia courtroom, this week saw the former Trump campaign chairman’s legal problems multiply. DC District Judge Amy Berman Jackson sentenced Manafort to another seven years in prison, though he’ll be allowed to serve his sentence for conspiracy-related charges concurrently with his Virginia sentence. In total, Manafort was ordered to spend some seven-and-a-half years behind bars. The tone of the two hearings couldn’t have been more different. Wh...

Bannon Gives ‘War Horse’ Pelosi A 10/10 Job Performance Rating

Nancy Pelosi has an unexpected fan. Steve Bannon, former White House chief strategist, graded the House speaker a 10 out of 10 on her job performance so far in a clip of the show “The Circus.” “She’s a war horse,” he said. “For what she’s trying to accomplish, I think Pelosi’s done a good job.” He applauded her recent impeachment comments as the perfect way to step back unless the political winds shift and the American public gets on board with ousting President Donald Trump from office.

A Bad Day for Beto

This was Beto O’Rourke’s big day. But I think it went pretty badly for him, though perhaps not in ways that will be immediately obvious. This may sound odd since he got some good press, got the ritual insult from the President and landed a number of endorsements right out of the gate. But it’s the endorsements themselves that suggest a problem. Right out of the gate O’Rourke won the endorsement Kathleen Rice, the Long Island Rep most recently notable for leading the Moultonite faction which tri...

Trump Says Theresa May ‘Didn’t Listen’ To His Brexit Negotiation Ideas

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump on Thursday sharply criticized Britain’s handling of negotiations over leaving the European Union, saying the talks have been bungled and that the wrenching debate was dividing the country. “I’m surprised at how badly it’s all gone from the standpoint of a negotiation,” he said. Trump, who holds himself up as a master deal-maker, said he gave Prime Minister Theresa May his ideas on how she could negotiate a successful deal for leaving the 28-member grou...

Emergency-Declaration Rebuke Splits Senate GOP

On Thursday afternoon, twelve Republican senators — nearly a fifth of the GOP caucus — joined Senate Democrats to pass a resolution terminating the national emergency declared by President Trump last month in an effort to unilaterally appropriate funds for construction of his long-promised border wall. The 59–41 vote was a rare bipartisan rebuke of Trump, who will now issue the first veto of his presidency in order to preserve the emergency declaration.The Senate GOP dissenters — Lamar Alexander...

Senate rejects Trump border emergency as Republicans defect

By ALAN FRAM, LISA MASCARO and CATHERINE LUCEY WASHINGTON — The Republican-run Senate rejected President Donald Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the southwest border on Thursday, setting up a veto fight and dealing him a conspicuous rebuke as he tested how boldly he could ignore Congress in pursuit of his highest-profile goal. The Senate voted 59-41 to cancel Trump’s February proclamation of a border emergency, which he invoked to spend $3.6 billion more for border barriers than Co...

Pelosi Explains Away Her Anti-Impeachment Comment: I Say That ‘Every Week’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Thursday tried to reframe her recent assertion that impeaching President Donald Trump is “just not worth it” unless “there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan.” In a press conference, Pelosi said it was merely a flashier restatement of her long-held position. “I made the comment that I made because I make it every week,” she said, adding: “It didn’t seem to catch on until I had a gimmick: ‘He’s not worth it.’ Boom. It explodes.”...

READ: Wilbur Ross’ Prepared Remarks In Front Of House Oversight Committee

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross is in front of the House Oversight Committee Thursday, where he will be grilled about his decision last year to add a citizenship question to the 2020 Census. His previous explanations to Congress and to the public — where he claimed that the Department of Justice initiated a December 2017 request for the question for voting rights enforcement purposes — have been undercut by documents released in the litigation over the question. Ross, in fact, was hankering fo...

‘Party’s Over’: GOPers Seem Ready To Deal Trump Defeat On Nat’l Emergency

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Republican-led Senate is set to deal President Donald Trump a rebuke on his declaration of a national emergency at the Mexican border, with the only remaining question how many GOP senators will join Democrats in defying him. Republicans are predicting that Thursday’s showdown vote will result in Congress sending Trump a resolution blocking the border emergency he proclaimed last month to steer an extra $3.6 billion to building border barriers. Since the Democratic-contr...

Pelosi's impeachment remarks were laughable

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's laughable announcement this week that she lacked enthusiasm for impeaching President Donald Trump ignored three things: the wishes of several vocal members in her conference, the bloodthirstiness of her party's base and the credibility of Adam Schiff.

Conundrum of the Day.

So if Nancy Pelosi, as @CharlesPPierce so eloquently argues here, is violating the solemn oath she swore and is refusing to perform the duties required her of the US Constitution, shouldn't she be impeached? — Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) March 12, 2019 Technical point: Removal would be by expulsion, not impeachment, and it would be done by a 2/3 vote of the House acting alone. Of course, it's not a serious proposal. It's not possible to remove members of Congress on ...

Pelosi Snatches Back Office Space That Paul Ryan Gave To Pence

One of Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) privileges as House speaker is to distribute highly prized office space however she wants. One of her first orders of business has been to strip Vice President Mike Pence of a mostly ceremonial office gifted to him by former House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-MN). the first-floor office, prime real estate, was given as a sign of the synergy between Pence and Ryan and the other House Republicans. The vice president also has a standing office on the Senate side, which he ...
