Tim Morrison in the House for his closed door deposition


Donald Trump Booed Again At Nationals Park Even Though Game Was In Houston

Washington fans watching a ballpark broadcast of World Series Game 7 erupted in contempt at a Trump campaign ad.

Trump attempted to bounce back from the boo birds that showered him at his #WorldSeries appearance with a Game 7 campaign commercial at the viewing party at #Nats stadium and.....everyone booed again. He has to accept the fact that his approval rating in DC is just not very high


John Yoo 'Regrets' Explosive Espionage Claim, Says Trump Did Quid Pro Quo

John Yoo tells Chris Cuomo he was referring to the Ukrainians, not Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman.............

“I really regret the choice of words,” he said, adding that Vindman “did the right thing” by reporting his concerns with Trump’s call.

Then, Yoo went even further and admitted that Trump’s actions amounted to a quid pro quo.

“I don’t have any doubts about that because you can read them in the transcript of the phone call that the White House released,” Yoo said. The only question is whether it’s a “high crime and misdemeanor” worthy of impeachment or if it’s a matter best decided in next year’s election.

The rest:

In Simi Valley - this thoroughbred goes back into the blaze to get his family.

Pompeo peddles a new conspiracy theory involving Obama, Hunter Biden and military aid.

In a Fox interview, @SecPompeo peddles a new conspiracy theory involving Obama, Hunter Biden and military aid. This insinuation makes zero sense. Pompeo, the top US diplomat, doesn’t seem to care anymore about trying to establish a reputation as a straight talker.


Jerry Brown: "Thank you Trump for making crystal clear how little you know about global car market"

Thank you @realDonaldTrump for making crystal clear how little you know about the global car market. Your horse and buggy strategy will not work.

The fossil fuel car is going the way of the dodo bird. Please inform the other members of the Flat Earth Society. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1189592785311223815

Thank you @GM, @FiatChrysler_NA, @Toyota, and @GloblAutomkrs for standing with us for Better, Cheaper, Safer Cars for Americans. California has treated the Auto Industry very poorly for many years, harming Workers and Consumers. We are fixing this problem!



Pelosi believes there's enough evidence to impeach Trump: "We've had enough for a very long time"

Pelosi believes there's enough evidence to impeach Trump: "I do think we have enough," she said. "We've had enough for a very long time … but as long as there is corroboration, we might as well get some more. And then we'll see."


...... She said flatly that she believes the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation has already accumulated enough evidence about Trump’s pressure campaign on Ukraine to justify such a decision. “I do think we have enough,” she said. “We’ve had enough for a very long time … but as long as there is corroboration, we might as well get some more. And then we’ll see.” She was equally unequivocal that the core charges against Trump—that he withheld congressionally appropriated military aid to try to force Ukraine to investigate a political opponent—reach the standard of “high crimes and misdemeanors” required for impeachment.

“If this president were to get away with this, forget about it all,” she said, sitting in a conference room in her suite of offices in the Capitol. “We might as well not even run for office. You don’t need this branch of government if he’s going to overturn the power of the purse, if he is going to overturn all of the other checks and balances, the power of inquiry.”

Tim Morrison-slated to testify in impeachment inquiry tomorrow-to leave Trump's Nat'l Security Counc

Tim Morrison, the top Russia official on President Trump's National Security Council, who is scheduled to testify in the impeachment inquiry on Thursday, is expected to leave his White House post imminently, three sources familiar with the plan told NPR.

Morrison, a conservative hawk who has served as the senior director for European and Russian affairs on the National Security Council, will be replaced by Andrew Peek, the deputy assistant secretary of state for Iraq and Iran in the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs, according to the sources.


Morrison started his job in July, chosen by Trump's former national security adviser, John Bolton, to fill the role when Fiona Hill — another witness in the impeachment inquiry — announced her plans to leave the White House in August.

Morrison is a crucial figure in the House Democratic investigation into whether Trump pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to launch an investigation of a political rival.
