Iowa caucus: Democrats make final push for votes

“When I do a wealth tax, it’s not to hand out money but to make the investments” says Warren.  Biden returned to a common theme of safety and experience, painting himself as the nominee with the best chance of beating Trump. Behind “Unite the Party” signs, Warren made an explicit appeal to women. Buttigieg pitched generational change, and Sanders sought to mobilize his passionate base.

White House responds to Bolton’s Ukraine claims: Timing is ‘very suspect’

A report in The New York Times said that White House officials believe Mr. Bolton, who is writing a book, took notes that he should have left behind when he resigned his post. “Now we learned that John Bolton took detailed notes and presumably these are contemporaneous,” Mr. Schiff said on CNN’s “New Day” program. “These notes took place while the events were happening, while they were fresh in his mind. Those, in many respects, are more important than the manuscript. So we ought to not only have John Bolton testify, but we ought to see what he wrote down in his notes at the time.”

Pro-life Democrat questions Buttigieg about abortion at Fox News town hall

Pro Life Democrat says, “I am a proud pro-life Democrat. So do you want the support of pro-life Democrats, pro-life Democratic voters? There are about 21 million of us. And if so, would you support more moderate platform language in the Democratic Party to ensure that the party of diversity, of inclusion really does include everybody?”  Buttigieg resonds, “But I know that the difference of opinion that you and I have is one that we have come by honestly. And the best that I can offer — and it may win your vote and, if not, I understand — the best I can offer is that if we can’t agree on where to draw the line, the next best thing we can do is agree on who should draw the line. And in my view, it’s the woman who’s faced with that decision in her own life.”

Sen. Graham on impeachment trial: I think Trump will get acquitted

But here — here’s what I have never seen before. I’m not Perry Mason, but I have done my fair share of trials in the military and civilian world. Never in my life have I started the trial asking the following of the judge or the jury: Do you mind calling witnesses now that I chose not to call before? Do you mind seeking evidence that I chose not to seek?

Because I want you to do it, because if I had called Bolton and Mulvaney in the House, the president would have gone to court to exercise executive privilege. And I didn’t want him to do that, because I couldn’t impeach him before Christmas if we had to deal with this thing called the court.

So, I am stunned to hear from the House managers that they want the Senate to call witnesses now they could have called before.

And they’re putting us in the box of destroying executive privilege or delaying the trial.

What to expect from the Senate impeachment trial

The U.S. Senate will meet Tuesday to start the impeachment trial of President Trump. Senators will set the ground rules for the trial on two articles of impeachment: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

Committee discusses proposed occupational tax

“What today’s meeting was about is looking at our Public Safety Department to see what it would take to make us the highest-paid Public Safety Department in the state of Alabama. What you heard today is we’re woefully understaffed, woefully underpaid. We got a lot of police officers and firemen that are having to work part-time or overtime to make ends meet for our city,” Pruitt said.

Ingraham: Left’s Russia obsession resurfaces

Yesterday the New York Times reported “Russian military hackers have been boring into the Ukrainian gas company at the center of the affair, according to security experts.”  Who are these security experts? It turns out it’s a company called Area 1 co founded by Democratic donor  Orin Falkowitz.  The Washington Examiner reported, “Firm that alleges Russian hacking of Burisma is working with 2020 Democrats.  What?”
