"They've listened to a lot of Democrat and Republican members for the last month. They've heard all the demands, they know all the background on it,” said Lankford, a member of the Senate’s Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.

“Put out a straw man proposal. Get something out there the president can say, ‘I can support this’ — and has elements from both sides. Put it on the table, then open it up for debate.”

giuliani says trump may have talked to Cohen about testimony

https://amp.cnn.com/cnn/2019/01/20/politics/rudy-giuliani-trump-cohen-cnntv/index.html

President Donald Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani argued Sunday he did not know for sure if Trump spoke with Michael Cohen about his congressional testimony, but that it would not have been significant if Trump did.

"I don't know if it happened or didn't happen. It may be attorney-client privilege if it happened, where I can't acknowledge it. But I have no knowledge that he spoke to him, but I'm telling you I wasn't there then," Giuliani said on CNN's "State of the Union" with Jake Tapper.

That took all of 2 days.

Just a reminder; TRUMP STILL USES AN UNVETTED CELL PHONE

that is all.

No committees. From what I'm to understand, those plum committee assignments are golden. There's also a strongly - worded "disapproval" bill

International Relations Expert Compares Trump's Rants To Those Of An Ailing Dictator Under Siege

"This is the kind of speech you give in Spanish in the early 1950s into a tinny microphone with the crackle and static of a fading kerosene generator and the sound of shouting and gunfire in the background approaching the presidential palace."

Wall Crowd Funder decides to use $ to build wall himself

https://www.thedailybeast.com/gofundme-border-wall-campaign-implodes-turns-to-kris-kobach-and-sheriff-clarke-for-new-non-profit

A decorated veteran who raised more than $20 million to finance construction of a wall along the southern U.S. border has announced that he will instead use the money to finance a new nonprofit group that will build the wall itself—or at least a couple miles of it.

Brian Kolfage’s crowdfunding campaign on the website GoFundMe went viral in December, before news outlets uncovered previous instances in which the triple-amputee veteran appeared to have pocketed funds raised through similar, if far smaller, campaigns billed as efforts to assist wounded warriors.

Now Kolfage, a prolific operator of conspiracy theory Facebook pages, has recruited a team of prominent figures in President Donald Trump’s orbit to run a new 501(c)(4) nonprofit, named We Fund The Wall, to do some wall construction of its own. The new group’s board, Kolfage announced on Friday, includes Erik Prince, the founder of infamous military contract Blackwater; David Clarke, the former scandal-plagued sheriff of Milwaukee County; Fox News contributor Sara Carter; Tom Tancredo, an immigration hardliner and former Colorado congressman; and former Kansas Secretary of State and voter fraud crusader Kris Kobach.



trump: "I can relate" to furloughed Federal workers

*snip*

trurmp’s claim that he can “relate” to financially strapped federal workers may be hard to swallow by some. Though he has claimed he didn’t inherit his wealth, a New York Times investigation in October revealed he benefited greatly from his father’s real estate fortune.

“By age 3, he was earning $200,000 a year in today’s dollars from his father’s empire. He was a millionaire by age 8. In his 40s and 50s, he was receiving more than $5 million a year,” the Times wrote.

OK, who had 14 hours? Romney supports wall.

https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/romney-vote-for-border-wall_us_5c2d301ee4b05c88b7057ef5

Incoming Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) revealed he would support President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall one day after publishing an opinion piece in The Washington Post critiquing nearly everything about the current administration.

“I would vote for the border wall,” Romney, former Republican presidential candidate, told CNN’s Jake Tapper in a Wednesday afternoon interview.
