White House considers arguing that Trump wasn't impeached

The White House is considering making the argument that President Trump has not officially been impeached, given that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has not transmitted the articles of impeachment to the Senate, two sources involved in the president's impeachment defense told CBS News.

The House voted to impeach Mr. Trump on two articles of impeachment — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress — on Wednesday. However, Pelosi told reporters on Thursday that the House would wait to deliver the articles until the Senate had laid out the rules for the trial.

"When we see the process that's set forth in the Senate, then we'll know the number of managers we'll have to move forward, and who we would choose," the California Democrat said. The House must vote on a resolution designating impeachment managers to prosecute the case against Mr. Trump in the Senate before delivering the articles.

Reps are so angry right now, it's like they just saw a poor kid getting healthcare.

Simplistic, yet not lacking some accuracy.

Trump administration lists fictional Wakanda as a duty-free trade partner

Cattle and water chestnuts as of Wednesday enjoyed duty-free trade between the United States and the fictional African nation of Wakanda, according to the US Department of Agriculture.

But the world’s most technologically advanced country — and home of the Marvel Comics hero Black Panther — has since been removed from an internet tariff tracker maintained by the US Department of Agriculture.

The agency said Thursday it had listed Wakanda as a free-trade partner during testing by its Foreign Agricultural Service and mistakenly allowed the listing to go live on the internet.

“The Foreign Agricultural Service staff who maintain the Tariff Tracker have been using test files to ensure that the system is running properly,” a spokesman said.


The man who could ruin McConnell's plan for a sham impeachment trial

Terry H. Schwadron

Amid impeachment gatherings in cities nationwide, partisan debates and a seething White House, the House of Representatives has finally voted along party lines to impeach Donald Trump, an action that is only the third in history.

A lot of people underwent a lot of effort to make things dramatic, but the numbers of the vote were understood from the get-go.

There were late-inning screeds and pleas: The president’s 6-page attack on Democrats did not waive away the dishonor of impeachment. Indeed remarks by Rudy Giuliani just underscored that there was a scheme, not a single phone call to extort campaign help for U.S. recognition and military help to a foreign country.

McConnell has been unusually pushy this week, going public with the message that he is in charge, that he is not an impartial juror, that this is a political process rather than a legal one.

And there was Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s screwball curve, vowing to hold the impeachment and not deliver it to the Senate until she understands that there will be a fair trial.

So, shortly or not, we’re on to the Senate, where, the question was forming as to whether it will be Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. or Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who will drive the decision-making for Trump’s impeachment trial.
