Donald Trump:

    Megyn Kelly said CNN and other media outlets are partly responsible for the violence that broke out in the Capitol on Jan. 6 because journalists couldn't check their "personal feelings about” former President Donald Trump. “Part of the reason we saw what happened at the Capitol here two weeks ago is because there had been a complete lack of trust in the media, and people don’t know where to turn for true information. They don’t trust the media anymore. And it’s a major problem,” Kelly said in an interview with BBC Newsnight Saturday. “They hated him so much they checked their objectivity. And it wasn’t just CNN. All of them did. They just couldn’t check their own personal feelings about him,” Kelly said. She added that “the media destroyed itself” but that Trump “certainly helped.” Kelly, who worked at Fox News during the 2016 election cycle, said she first...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal law enforcement officials are examining a number of threats aimed at members of Congress as the second trial of former President Donald Trump nears, including ominous chatter about killing legislators or attacking them outside of the U.S. Capitol, a U.S. official told The Associated Press. The threats, and concerns that armed protesters could return to sack the Capitol anew, have prompted the U.S. Capitol Police and other federal law enforcement to insist thousands of National Guard troops remain in Washington as the Senate moves forward with plans for Trump’s trial, the official said Sunday. WASHINGTON, DC – JANUARY 13: An article of impeachment for incitement of insurrection against President Donald Trump sits on a table at the U.S. Capitol on January 13, 2021 in Washington, DC. The House of Representatives voted to impeach Trump a second time, after Vice President Mike Pence declined to use the...
    Dr. Anthony Fauci says there were times he felt compelled to speak out against former President Donald Trump when it came to raising awareness of the coronavirus pandemic. Fauci, who became a national name early last year, reflected on his time during the Trump administration during an interview, recalling moments that "really concerned" him. "It isn’t like I took any pleasure in contradicting the president of the United States. I have a great deal of respect for the office. But I made a decision that I just had to," Fauci said. "Otherwise, I would be compromising my own integrity and be giving a false message to the world. If I didn’t speak up, it would be almost tacit approval that what he was saying was OK." Fauci, who served on the White House coronavirus task force, said he was particularly concerned about Trump touting unproven drugs like hydroxychloroquine and the...
    Former President Donald Trump is interested in running for the White House again in 2024, former National Intelligence Director Ric Grenell said over the weekend. “He’s going to decide what he wants to do,” Grenell said in a weekend interview on Newsmax. “He’s told me, personally, multiple times that he does want to run again, so we’ll see if that holds, and how that comes about.” Grenell, who served as Trump’s ambassador to Germany from 2018-20 before a three-month stint as the intelligence community’s acting director, added that he believed Trump would stick with the Republican Party rather than attempting to create a third party. “I think we’ve got a long ways to go, but clearly, Donald Trump is a Republican and should run as a Republican,” Grenell said. “I’ve been to every single Republican convention since 1992, and I don’t think we’ve ever had a situation where we don’t have this conversation...
    ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos is catching heat for editing a verbal slip-up made by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer when he said, “Donald John Trump incited the erection.” "Make no mistake, there will be a trial, and when that trial ends, senators will have to decide if they believe Donald John Trump incited the erection … insurrection against the United States," Schumer said while addressing the Senate Friday. On Sunday, ABC aired a clip of the comments, but it was seamlessly edited so the blunder was deleted, and the correct word “insurrection” was used. "Senators will have to decide if they believe Donald John Trump incited the insurrection,” the clip said. The edited video was spread on social media, with some condemning it as an example of how the media is biased. During the intro to “This Week,” ABC used some editing magic...

    A manatee was recently discovered in Florida with the word “Trump” apparently etched into its back. The grotesque assault on the wild aquatic being by persons as yet unknown drew repulsion and outrage from the public and officials. Coming in the final days of his presidency, the obscene act provided an apt illustration of Donald Trump’s impact on the natural world while in office. Indeed, the Trump administration wasted no time in its finals days making sure that toxic legacy is etched in stone. “One hundred percent disturbing” Boat charter operator Hailey Warrington spotted the branded manatee, a threatened species, in the Homosassa River on 10 January. She told the Sarasota Herald-Tribune “This is just disturbing. One hundred percent disturbing”. As well as being disturbing, the act was also illegal. As Ecowatch reported, Manatees are protected by the Endangered Species Act and the Marine Mammal Protection Act on a...
    Marjorie Taylor Green, a pro-Trump woman from Congress and a follower of the QAnon conspiracy theory, has filed an indictment against Joe Biden. With Donald Trump’s indictment set to open before the Senate in early February, an elected member of the House of Representatives is opening a new front. Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green was elected after a campaign last November in which she expressed unconditional support for the outgoing president and her belief in the QAnon conspiracy theory, and filed an indictment against Joe Biden on Thursday, the day after he took office. Opponents of the election results certificate, wearing the masks of “censored” or “Trump won,” accused the new US president of being “unworthy” of President Obama: “His repeated abuse of power as President Obama’s vice president is endless and confusing. President Biden has proven that he will do everything in his power to bail...
    Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, personal attorney to U.S. President Donald Trump, gestures after media announced that Democratic U.S. presidential nominee Joe Biden has won the 2020 U.S. presidential election, in, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U.S., November 7, 2020.Eduardo Munoz | Reuters Dominion Voting Systems filed a defamation lawsuit Monday against former President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, accusing him of pushing "disinformation to purposefully mislead voters" and causing "irreparable harm" to the company. Giuliani was involved in Trump's efforts to overturn his loss to President Joe Biden in the 2020 election. The former New York City mayor argued repeatedly in public that Trump's win had been stolen by widespread electoral fraud. The lawsuit seeks more than $1.3 billion in compensatory and punitive damages. "The disinformation campaign waged against my company is what prompts this legal action today," Dominion CEO John Poulos said in a statement.Giuliani "actively propagated disinformation...
    Kim Kardashian has snubbed former US President Donald Trump after he granted clemency to an inmate despite working with him on prison reform during his presidency.  The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star neglected to publicly thank Trump for commuting the life sentence of Chris Young, who was released on Thursday. In an Instastory, the 40-year-old aspiring lawyer wrote that her 'heart was full' as she thanked the 32-year-old ex-con's attorney Brittany K. Barnes, Judge Kevin H. Sharp, REFORM Alliance CAO Jessica Jackson, and Alice Marie Johnson. The former president was noticeably absent from the list of people Kardashian  mentioned.  The reality star turned prisoners rights activist has worked with the White House on criminal justice reform issues since 2018, and has slowly gained a reputation for herself as an influential advocate for criminal justice reform.

    Former President Donald Trump spent his final moments in the White House on his own, devastated that he is being replaced by Democrat Joe Biden, according to reporter Jim Acosta. Acosta, who spent the past four years covering the Trump White House for CNN, told Brian Stelter on Sunday that closest allies and advisers abandoned Trump at the end. “It was sort of a sad and pathetic sight. I’ve never seen him this alone the entire time he was at the level of presidential politics,” the reporter said. It took more than two months for Trump to accept Biden’s victory in the 2020 presidential election. After launching dozens of legal challenges in states across the nation, all of which were rejected by the courts, he held a rally in Washington, D.C. urging his supporters to prevent the U.S. Congress from certifying Electoral College votes. Convinced that they would be able...
    Former President Donald Trump wants to run for the White House again, according to a top ally. "He's told me personally, multiple times, that he does want to run again," Richard Grenell, who served as an ambassador and acting director of national intelligence during the Trump administration, told Newsmax on Saturday. "We'll see if that holds," Grenell said, adding that he believes there is a "long way to go." His reelection effort defeated in 2020, Trump has kept a relatively low profile since flying to Florida on President Biden's Inauguration Day last week, but he did offer a hint to the Washington Examiner about his future plans when asked on Friday. "We'll do something, but not just yet," he said at the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach. After getting impeached a second time by the House on a charge of incitement of insurrection in connection to the...
    Former President Donald Trump is no longer interested in forming a third party that would challenge the GOP from the right, according to New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman. Citing individuals familiar with the former president’s thinking, Haberman reported Sunday via Twitter that he has been “talked out of” the idea. Trump has made it “clear” to aides and advisers that he won’t follow through on the threat, per Haberman’s sources briefed on the matter. Trump reportedly wanted to start a third party, called the Patriot Party, to put pressure on Senate Republicans and force them to acquit him in the upcoming impeachment trial. However, he has since realized that most Republicans probably won’t vote to convict him anyway. In addition, aides explained to Trump that he would not be able to primary lawmakers who wronged him if he started the Patriot Party, according to the reporter. “Trump has started...
    Former President Donald Trump may still have some pardons up his sleeve. That's what Michael Cohen, Trump's former personal attorney, theorized Sunday during an interview on MSNBC, saying the 45th president could have left office with undisclosed pardons just in case he or members of his family ever face federal charges. "I think Donald Trump actually has given himself the pardon," Cohen said as he walked host Alex Witt through his thought process following Trump's eleventh-hour wave of pardons last week. "I think he also has pocket pardons for his children and for Rudy [Giuliani], and it's already stashed somewhere that, if and when they do get indicted and that there's a criminal conviction, federal criminal conviction brought against him, that he already has the pardons in hand." Cohen, who lost his law license after he pleaded guilty to multiple felonies in 2018, added that he searched the U.S. Constitution...
    Loading the player... Former President Donald Trump reportedly pressured the Department of Justice to take his proposal to overturn the 2020 presidential election results to the Supreme Court and considered replacing the current attorney general with an official who would agree to pursue his claims of voter fraud. The Wall Street Journal reported that Trump’s efforts to thwart President Joe Biden’s victory failed due to his appointees in the Justice Department’s refusal to file a lawsuit to the Supreme Court with baseless claims.

    Arizona Republicans on Saturday censured three of the state’s prominent party leaders who are at odds with former President Donald Trump. Republicans voted to censure Gov. Doug Ducey, former Sen. Jeff Flake, and Cindy McCain, the widow of Sen. John McCain, NPR reported. “The sweeping — yet essentially symbolic — rebuke took place during a meeting to figure out how to move forward after the state flipped blue in November, narrowly giving its 11 electoral votes to now-President [Joe] Biden,” the article read. McCain and Flake earned their censures for their opposition to Trump and for supporting globalist interests, state GOP members said. “In condemning Ducey, the party cited the governor’s decision to enact emergency orders during the coronavirus pandemic that the committee said are unconstitutional and ‘restrict personal liberties,'” the NPR report continued. At the meeting Saturday, Kelli Ward won a second term as chairwoman of the state’s party after...
    Democratic Senate leader Chuck Schumer was ridiculed on Friday for an unfortunate gaffe he made while criticizing former President Donald Trump’s supposed influence on the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. But Schumer’s error was conveniently edited out in a clip that aired Sunday on ABC’s "This Week." Schumer was discussing plans to move forward with an impeachment trial of Trump, after the House last week voted to impeach the ex-president for "incitement of insurrection." It was then that Schumer made a somewhat phallic flub. "Make no mistake, there will be a trial and when that trial ends, senators will have to decide if they believe Donald John Trump incited the erection…insurrection against the United States," Schumer said, visibly wincing. When ABC’s "This Week" re-aired the segment, Schumer’s gaffe was noticeably absent. The transcript of Schumer’s speech now read: "Senators will have to decide if they believe Donald...
    Former Donald Trump attorney Michael Cohen appeared on MSNBC on Sunday and claimed that the former head of state likely issued himself and his children secret “pocket pardons,” Raw Story reported. According to Cohen, these pardons could be used sometime in the future and essentially act as “get out of jail free” cards. “What are we missing as Americans? And I kind of think I figured it out,” he said. “I think Donald Trump actually has given himself the pardon. I think he also has pocket pardons for his children and for Rudy [Giuliani] and it’s already stashed somewhere that, if and when they do get indicted and that there’s a criminal conviction, federal criminal conviction brought against him, he already has the pardons in hand.” Cohen claimed that the U.S. Constitution does not stipulate that pardons have to be disclosed to the American public and press. The disbarred lawyer...
    Charles Michel said that the swearing in of Joe Biden could mean a return to a “respectful” dialogue between Europe and the US – Olivier Hoslet /Pool EPA The European Council president Charles Michel said yesterday (SUN) that the swearing in of Joe Biden could mean a return to a “respectful” dialogue after four years of the Trump presidency that “damaged the relationship between Europe and the United States.” “I say this, and it is not a joke, the previous president spoke more with North Korea than worth the Europeans” Mr Michel told French radio Europe 1. He added the inauguration of Joe Biden, a Democrat who defeated Mr Trump in a landslide in November, would mark the start of a “more normal, more respectful dialogue, on important subjects such as the climate.” One of Mr Biden’s first executive orders as he came into office included rejoining the global...
    Earlier this week, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer committed a blunder when speaking on the U.S. Senate floor, misspeaking and called the allegation that former President Donald Trump led an insurrection against the U.S. government an “erection.” “Make no mistake, there will be a trial, and when that trial ends, senators will have to decide if they believe Donald John Trump incited the erection,” Schumer declared, before correcting himself. During the introduction of Sunday’s broadcast of ABC’s “This Week,” through editing, the “erection” portion of Schumer’s remarks was apparently edited out. Follow Jeff Poor on Twitter @jeff_poor
    In an interview with Fox News on Sunday, Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida described the upcoming Senate impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump as “stupid” and slammed Democratic Party politicians. The House of Representatives impeached Trump last week, claiming that he incited an insurrection against the U.S. government when he told his supporters to storm the Capitol building and overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. Trump’s trial in the U.S. Senate will start next month, but it remains unclear how many Republicans are open to defecting and convicting the former commander-in-chief. Speaking with anchor Chris Wallace, Rubio argued that the push to convict Trump could further divide the American people and inflame partisan passions. “Well, first of all, I think the trial is stupid. It’s counterproductive. We already have a flaming fire in this country, and it’s like taking a bunch of gasoline and pouring it...
    CNN White House correspondent Jeff Zeleny told host Abby Philip on Sunday that Donald Trump might testify at his forthcoming impeachment trial due to his desire for attention, Raw Story. “He is now taking it [impeachment] much more seriously, we’re told,” he said. “He has followed the advice of Senator Lindsay Graham and he’s going to retain a South Carolina lawyer, Butch Bowers, who is really — has never operated on this type of impeachment level. He’s done some state impeachment cases, but President Trump is very engaged.” Zeleny claimed that there are currently not enough Republican senators in support of impeachment to convict Trump. The reporter continued to suggest that the trial could give Trump a chance to emerge more powerful, which he said would run contrary to the desires of some Republicans in the GOP. “He’s watching all of this very carefully. And Abby what if he decides...
    BOSTON (CBS) – Lawmakers will soon be faced with the decision on whether or not to convict former President Donald Trump during his Senate trial after he was impeached for the second time in four years. WBZ-TV political analyst Jon Keller was joined by New York Times senior correspondent Mark Leibovich, a Newton native, to discuss the Senate trial, which is expected to take place in early February. Leibovich recently wrote that Trump still has a “determined army of followers.” But Keller wondered if after recent hits to Republican power during the Trump years, would some members of the party prefer to convict and prevent him from running again? “No question. One of these people might be Mitch McConnell, who based on what he said publicly seems very open to thinking very seriously for convicting him after he was impeached, which would stop him from running for president again,” said...
    Analysis by Marshall Cohen | CNN Former President Donald Trump flouted the limits of presidential power unlike any of his recent predecessors, leaving behind a legacy of unmatched abuses that range from violations of longstanding norms to potentially criminal behavior. It was hard to keep track amid the daily deluge of controversial tweets and distractions that were a hallmark of the Trump presidency. And some of the most egregious abuses of power weren’t clear at the time but came into focus after exhaustive investigations. To chronicle Trump’s most consequential abuses of power, CNN spoke with a politically diverse group of constitutional scholars, presidential historians and experts on democratic institutions. While these 16 experts did not agree on everything, there was consensus that Trump’s pattern of abusing his powers for personal or political gain reached an alarming level that hasn’t been seen in modern history, and will have long-lasting consequences for...
    WASHINGTON -- The words of Donald Trump supporters who are accused of participating in the deadly U.S. Capitol riot may end up being used against him in his Senate impeachment trial as he faces the charge of inciting a violent insurrection.At least five supporters facing federal charges have suggested they were taking orders from the then-president when they marched on Capitol Hill on Jan. 6 to challenge the certification of Joe Biden's election win. But now those comments, captured in interviews with reporters and federal agents, are likely to take center stage as Democrats lay out their case. It's the first time a former president will face such charges after leaving office."I feel like I was basically following my president. I was following what we were called to do. He asked us to fly there. He asked us to be there," Jenna Ryan, a Texas real estate agent who posted...
    Mary Trump has revealed how she is considering changing her last name to cut all ties with her uncle after he did 'incalculable' damage to the US during his Presidency.  Donald Trump's niece - who has written a scathing memoir about her uncle branding him the 'worlds most dangerous man' - says that she fears the negative connotations her name may have in the future.  The clinical psychologist, 55, also shed light on his relationship with Melania Trump, 50, claiming that while she does not feel the former First Lady wants to divorce, Donald does not understand 'affection or intimacy'.  'The damage Donald has done to this country is incalculable', she said in an interview with the Sunday Telegraph. 'We're just waiting to find out how much is irreparable'.  Mary Trump, 55, pictured last year, is considering changing her last name to cut all ties with her uncle after he did 'incalculable'...
    Donald Trump became the first president in history to be impeached twice when the House of Representatives voted last week to charge him with inciting the January 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol. His Senate trial is scheduled to begin next month. But there are still concerns about lawmakers’ safety and some believe that it would be best to allow senators to vote secretly as to avoid violence and ensure that Republicans go with their conscience, according to a Saturday report from Raw Story. Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich was first to float the idea, urging Democrats — who have a one-vote majority in the upper chamber — to allow a confidential vote. “If Republican senators had integrity and if Trump supporters were peaceful, this wouldn’t be necessary. But they’re not and they’re not. So a secret ballot offers a better chance of convicting Trump and ensuring he’ll never again...
    Former President Donald Trump issued more than 100 pardons before leaving the White House, most of them to personal friends and political allies, including controversial figures such as Paul Manafort and Gen. Michael Flynn. According to a Saturday report from Business Insider, some legal experts believe that Trump’s pardons were so “poorly worded” that the individuals he pardoned may still be open to prosecution. Manafort, who briefly managed Trump’s 2016 campaign, was convicted of federal violations linked to former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election interference and related matters. Manafort’s pardon was very narrow, according to University of Baltimore law professor Kimberly Wehle, which means that authorities could still go after him. “It says ‘for his conviction’ and that’s it. It’s just for the crimes for which he was convicted,” she said. To illustrate her point, Wehle compared Manafort’s pardon to the one former President Richard Nixon received....
    In an interview with Newsmax on Saturday, constitutional law expert Alan Dershowitz said that it would be “illegal” to bar former President Donald Trump from ever holding office again. The Democratic-controlled House of Representatives impeached Trump last week, claiming that he incited an insurrection against the U.S. government when he directed his supporters to storm the Capitol building in order to stop the certification of Electoral College results in the 2020 presidential election. Democrats are expected to send their impeachment articles to the Senate next week and even though they most likely won’t have the votes to convict Trump they could, at least in theory, pass a measure barring him from launching a comeback campaign in four years. Dershowitz described this initiative as “an attempt to simply control the electoral process in 2024” and clarified that he will not be involved in the trial because it is nothing but “political...
    Former Michigan Rep. Justin Amash took aim at Donald Trump Jr. on Friday evening for touting his father’s foreign policy accomplishments. “Donald Trump is the first president in modern history did not start a new war,” Trump Jr. tweeted. In response, Amash underlined the less impressive aspects of the president’s career. “He just massively escalated existing ones, while working to conceal troop numbers, drone strikes, and civilian casualties from the public. What a guy!” Amash continued to highlight various reports on Trump’s foreign policy record. Notably, Forbes pointed to U.S. Air Forces Central Command data that found that 2019 was a record year for the number of bombs the United States dropped on Afghanistan. Notably, both manned and unmanned coalition aircraft munitions and sorties that were flown by strike aircraft increased from 2018 to 2019 “Towards the end of Obama’s presidency, the number of bombs dropped continued to fall, reaching...
    Friday on FNC’s “Hannity,” Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) challenged the premise of an impeachment effort led by congressional Democrats against former President Donald Trump. Cotton said because Democrats were pursuing the effort, it was as if Trump were “living rent-free” inside their heads. “Shortly after the House passed its article of impeachment against the president last week, I said it’s beyond the Senate’s constitutional authority to have a trial for a former president,” he said. “It just doesn’t make any sense. And I think most Americans are going to look at the Senate wasting our time on a trial to convict and remove from office a man who left office last week.” “I mean, Donald Trump moved out of the White House on Wednesday, but he is still living rent-free in the Democrats’ heads because they’re pursuing this impeachment after he’s already left office when the Constitution plainly says impeachment...

He is accused of “inciting insurrection” with the assault on the Capitol. This has been reported by the leader of the Democratic majority in the Senate, Chuck Schumer. He indicated that accusations for impeachment will be sent to the Upper House this week and that procedural matters and preparations will begin. The head of the Republican minority in the Senate, Mitch McConnell, asked for a delay in the beginning of the impeachment trial in order to prepare the defense of Donald Trump. “The trial will take place in the United States Senate, and there will be a vote on whether or not to ‘convict’ the president,” Schumer said. In addition, it indicated that it will be a “full and fair trial.” ...

    Michael Boulos, the young Arab-American entrepreneur destined to become Donald Trump’s son-in-law, comes from an extraordinary family which has enjoyed immense wealth but also suffered unimaginable tragedy, MailOnline can reveal. The 23-year-old, who proposed to the ex-President’s youngest daughter Tiffany, 27, with a £1million engagement ring this week, is heir to a vast multi-billion pound business empire spanning much of the African continent.  His family's roots are based in the dusty hills of Northern Lebanon and spread across decades and continents to an opulent lifestyle in Nigeria and the US.

    According to the New York Times, Trump only gave up on his plan when he learned that senior Justice Department officials would resign en masse if he followed through on his plan. This information, which is also reported by the Washington Post, comes just over two weeks before Donald Trump’s impeachment trial in the Senate. The latter is accused of having encouraged his supporters to launch an assault on the Capitol on January 6, when the elected representatives of Congress certified the victory of his Democratic rival, Joe Biden, in the presidential election. Trump narrowly lost Georgia to Biden in the November presidential election, in a vote he claimed was baseless to be rigged. According to U.S. newspapers, Trump has grown increasingly frustrated with Rosen’s refusal to use the power of the Department of Justice to interfere with the vote count. He is said...
    The former president of the United States is accused of having encouraged his supporters to launch an assault on the Capitol which led to the death of 5 people. Lhe impeachment trial of Donald Trump will begin the second week of February in the Senate, after the transmission of the indictment of the former president at the beginning of next week, announced Friday the Democratic leader of the Senate Chuck Schumer. “Once the files are drafted, the presentation by the parties will begin the week of February 8,” Chuck Schumer told his colleagues in the Senate. This program amounts to postponing the trial for two weeks, which will allow the upper house to confirm Joe Biden’s appointments to his government beforehand, and potentially deal with a massive economic aid plan to address the crisis. caused by the coronavirus. “Our prosecutors are ready to defend their case before the...

Trial begins February 8 Democratic leaders in Congress announced Friday, January 22, the date for the impeachment trial of Donald trump.

    Dr. Deborah Birx said that she “always” considered resigning from Donald Trump’s COVID-19 task force, acknowledging the criticism that she was too close to the president in her role. Birx served as the coronavirus response coordinator in Trump’s White House, but was often criticized for not pushing back against incorrect information spread by Trump and for appearing to critics to be deferential to the president. As CNN reported, she would eventually fade into a less publicly prominent role while going on the road to spread her public health message. That allowed controversial adviser Scott Atlas to take a more prominent role, the report claimed. As The Inquisitr noted, Atlas came under fire for reportedly pushing a herd immunity strategy that would allow young and healthy people to become infected, an approach that experts said would be dangerous and could potentially lead to the deaths of millions of Americans. In an...
    Donald Trump fought for years to keep his tax records from being released, but Joe Biden’s administration may soon change that. As the Washington Post reported, House Democrats had sought the now former president’s federal tax records for years, but were not successful. The Democrats have now renewed their demand, and the Biden team has not indicated whether it will drop the objections that Trump had in place and order that the documents be shared with investigators. As the report noted, the potential battle over Trump’s taxes appeared to hint at the challenges that Biden faces as he seeks to tackle his own agenda while still dealing with the lingering effects of his predecessor. As Biden seeks to set his White House agenda, he faces the prospect of a second impeachment trial for Trump that could stall any work through the U.S. Senate. As The Hill reported, federal district court...
    This two-week delay between the delivery of the indictment and the start of the proceedings will ensure that the trial does not monopolize the sessions in the upper house for the start of Joe Biden’s term. The Senate will thus be able in particular to confirm the members of its government. “Once the files are drafted, the presentation by the parties will begin the week of February 8,” Chuck Schumer, the Democratic leader of the Senate, where Donald Trump is to be tried for “incitement to insurgency” said Friday evening. Mr. Schumer had previously clarified to his colleagues that the indictment “would be sent to the Senate on Monday”. “Our prosecutors are ready to defend their case before the 100 senators who will serve as judges during the trial,” Ms. Pelosi then confirmed in a statement. Concretely, these “prosecutors” – elected Democrats of the House led by Jamie Raskin...
    On the day that Joe Biden was inaugurated as the 46th president of the United States, a Facebook friend of former New York Observer editor-in-chief Ken Kurson’s wrote on his wall, “Congrats on being pardoned for your crimes, I guess.” Kurson, a longtime close friend of Jared Kushner’s, had been arrested in October on charges of cyberstalking three people and harassing two in an elaborate revenge scheme to punish people he perceived as being responsible for the breakup of his marriage. Kurson, who has forcefully denied the allegations and had yet to go to trial, was one of the 74 people Donald Trump pardoned in the final hours of his presidency. There are three reasons Kurson’s pardon stood out to me. First, because I know him. I was the editor in chief of The New York Observer in 2011 and 2012, and Kurson, despite his limited background in journalism, was...
    Donald Trump sent the White House ushers home early on his last day in office in a final “petty” act that left Joe Biden locked out after his inauguration, a report claims. As the National Journal reported, the outgoing president and first lady sent the ushers home for the day on Wednesday morning, which left Biden and his wife to “fend for themselves upon entering” their new residence. The outlet, citing a “well-placed official” who is not part of the new administration, said the move was intentional. “The Trumps sent the butlers home when they left so there would be no one to help the Bidens when they arrived,” the source claimed. “So petty.” The report added that while reporting indicated that Biden fired chief usher Timothy Harleth, it was actually Trump who sacked the former executive of Trump Hotels who had been hired to his White House post by...
    The opening arguments in the impeachment trial of Donald Trump in the Senate over the mutiny in the federal Capitol will begin the week of February 8, the first time that a former president will face such a process after leaving office. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announced the schedule after reaching an agreement with Republicans, who had pushed to delay the trial to give Trump a chance to organize his team of lawyers and prepare his defense. before the only charge against him: inciting an insurrection. The February start date also gives the Senate more time to confirm President Joe Biden’s nominees to his cabinet and to examine the high-priority $ 1.9 trillion COVID-19 aid bill. on the agenda of the new White House that could stall during the impeachment process. “We all want to leave behind this terrible chapter in our nation’s history,” Schumer said of the deadly...
    After a bombshell report claimed that Donald Trump sought to oust his own acting attorney general as part of a plot to overturn election results in Georgia, a former prosecutor predicts that there could still be more damaging revelations to come. A report from the New York Times (via The Hill) on Friday claimed that Trump had planned to oust then-acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen and replace him with Jeffrey Clark, a lawyer at the Department of Justice and fierce loyalist to the president. The newspaper claimed that Rosen had declined to back Trump’s claims that the race had been stolen from him in Georgia, refusing to give in to Trump’s pressure to appoint special counsels to investigation the unfounded allegations. As the outlet noted, the plan fell apart when a number of top officials ad the Department of Justice learned of Trump’s plan and threatened to resign if he...
    Donald Trump planned to fire his Attorney General for refusing to overturn election results and replace him with one who would, according to a bombshell report in The New York Times. Jeffrey Rosen, who was serving as acting Attorney General after Bill Barr resigned just before Christmas, would not agree to upend the presidential election result in Georgia. He also pushed Rosen to appoint special counsels, including one who would look into Dominion Voting Systems - an election machinery company, which Trump and his supporters accused, without any evidence, of switching votes from Trump to Joe Biden. Trump worked with another Justice Department official, Jeffrey Clark, to try and overturn the Georgia vote.  Jeffrey Clark, a Justice Department official, was considered as a replacement for the AG Jeffrey Rosen became acting Attorney General when Bill Barr stepped down before Christmas He even went as far as staging an 'Apprentice-style'...

    Fox News contributor Juan Williams appeared to blame former President Donald Trump for the debacle that left National Guard troops stranded in a parking garage. Williams joined Friday’s broadcast of “The Five” to discuss the photos of soldiers camped out in a parking garage after being told to vacate the Capitol — photos that sparked outrage among Americans on both sides of the political aisle. (RELATED: Juan Williams Condemns Capitol Riot, Says There Is ‘No Moral Equivalence’ Between Targeting Capitol And Trageting Private Property) WATCH: Williams began by saying that everyone was thankful that the National Guard had been standing by to help. “Their presence was a great thing for America during the inauguration, and they deserve to be treated with all the dignity in the world.” “Absolutely,” Sandra Smith agreed. “Worth pointing out, though, some veterans and current soldiers are pointing out pretty quickly, ‘Don’t feel bad, they...
    On Friday, President Donald Trump made his first public remarks since leaving the White House and being replaced by Democrat Joe Biden. A reporter with The Washington Examiner approached Trump at his golf club in Florida and inquired about his future plans. The president was cagey and made a cryptic comment. “We’ll do something, but not just yet,” he told the reporter as he dined with a group of friends. An aide reportedly intervened, abruptly ending the interaction. Around the same time, top Democrats in the House of Representatives announced that they will send an article of impeachment to the Senate on Monday. The lower chamber impeached Trump last week, accusing him of inciting the January 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol. The riots exploded after the former president allegedly instructed his supporters to storm the building and stop the certification of Biden’s win. It remains unclear if the evenly...
    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announced on Friday that opening arguments in the upcoming impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump will begin on Monday, February 8. As reported by the Associated Press, the delayed start date came as the result of an agreement with Senate Republicans, who had endeavored to give the one-term executive an opportunity to assemble his legal team. Trump was impeached last week by the House of Representatives for the second time in his presidency when 222 Democrats and 10 Republicans voted to try him for inciting insurrection. On the morning of January 6, the former commander-in-chief urged thousands of his supporters to march on the U.S. Capitol Building as Congress worked to certify the results of the electoral college, a development that ultimately proved deadly and delayed certification by several hours. This came after months of unfounded claims of election fraud from Trump, as well...
    On January 6, after a group of Donald Trump’s supporters stormed and vandalized the U.S. Capitol building, photographs of a rioter named Jacob Chansley immediately went viral. Also known as the QAnon Shaman, Chansley has since become one of the most recognizable faces of the riot, largely thanks to his bizarre appearance. In an interview with Missouri’s NBC-affiliated television station KSDK on Thursday, Chansley’s lawyer Al Watkins indicated that his legal strategy will be to blame Trump for inciting the riots and “duping” his client and other protesters to storm the Capitol building and overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. Watkins explicitly accused Trump of inciting the riots with his rhetoric, saying that the former commander-in-chief is on the record telling his followers to attack lawmakers in order to prevent them from certifying Democrat Joe Biden’s win in the presidential race. “Let’s roll the months of lies, and...
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Joe Biden is in the oval office. Donald Trump is now a resident of Florida. So the NYPD has scaled back its presence at the Fifth Avenue tower that bears the former president’s name. After more than four years of tight security and frequent protests, it’s a relief for many in Midtown. As CBS2’s Tony Aiello reports, 58-story Trump Tower has loomed large over Fifth Avenue since 1983, never moreso than during the candidacy and presidency of its namesake. For more than four years, it has had a ring of protection, which is now slowly being peeled back. “Anything that normalizes the area is good,” said Jerome Barth of the Fifth Avenue Association. “People are looking to go back to what is the regular function of the street.” A street that has seen countless heated protests and bizarre interruptions, including a man’s effort to scale the...
    Leftist actor Jim Carrey has taken one last dig at Melania Trump, crowning her the “worst first lady” in a new portrait caricature that mocks and bids farewell to the recent White House occupant. Jim Carrey, ignoring Joe Biden’s call for unity and headline in America, tweeted the caricature Friday, suggesting that Melania Trump will be seeking a divorce from Donald Trump.”Oh… and goodbye worst first lady,” he wrote. “I hope the settlement can finance your life in the shallow end. Thx for nothing.” pic.twitter.com/zvU6tF4UjM — Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) January 22, 2021 During her tenure as first lady, Melania Trump received no affection from the mainstream media, including fashion magazines, which never featured her on their covers despite her past modeling career in Europe.

    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announced on Friday that former President Donald Trump's impeachment trial will begin on Feb. 9. "For the information of all senators, the house managers will come to read the article of impeachment at 7 p.m. on Monday, January 25th," Schumer said. "Members will then be sworn in the next day, Tuesday, January 26th. After that, both the house managers and the defense will have a period of time to draft their legal briefs, just as they did in previous trials. "During that period, the Senate will continue to do other business for the American people, such as Cabinet nominations and the COVID-relief bill, which would provide relief for millions of Americans who are suffering during this pandemic. Then, once the briefs are drafted, presentations by the parties will commence the week of February 8th. "The January 6th insurrection at the Capitol, incited...
    President Donald Trump is hinting that he'll be back on the political scene, but otherwise keeping his own counsel as he starts his new life as a Florida resident and golf club regular. Trump has been in virtual seclusion since flying Mar a Lago in West Palm Beach in the final hours of his presidency – although he did hit the links his first day out of office and made it to the Grill Room of his golf club Friday.

    There were still a few minutes left of Donald Trump’s troubled tenure as U.S. president, but his First Lady had had enough. When the pair disembarked from Air Force One at Palm Beach International Airport on Wednesday, Trump paused for one last photocall. His wife, however — who’d changed en route from a fitted suit and heels into a flowing Gucci kaftan and flats — barely broke her stride. She headed straight for the waiting limousine, leaving him to wave for the cameras and small crowd on his own. Melania, at least, knew that it was all over. For her, the departure from the White House may have come not a moment too soon.

    Last week, the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives impeached former President Donald Trump for the second time, accusing him of inciting an insurrection against the U.S. government. The articles of impeachment have yet to be sent to the Senate and Trump’s fate remains unclear. According to a Friday report from The Hill, however, some Democrats are considering using the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution to prevent him from ever holding office again. Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said that “the remedies of the 14th Amendment certainly may be appropriate for someone who incites an insurrection as Donald Trump did,” but stressed that talk of barring the former commander-in-chief from holding office was still hypothetical. Blumenthal’s fellow Connecticuter Chris Murphy said that using the 14th Amendment was “certainly a possibility,” but described it as an “avenue separate and aside from impeachment.” Sen. Tim Kaine...
    It’s Friday, so here’s a stupid joke for you to enjoy. The Senate impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump is set to begin within weeks, and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer had a rather unfortunate slip-up talking about it on Friday morning. “There will be a trial, and when that trial ends, senators will have to decide if they believe Donald John Trump incited the erection… insurrection… against the United States,” Schumer said. The brief grimace on his face at that moment pretty clearly conveyed he knew exactly what he just said. With all the political turmoil this country is facing, sometimes what we really need is just a very dumb, very silly dick joke: So, on the Senate floor, Chuck Schumer just said that senators must decide if "Donald John Trump incited the erection, uh, insurrection…" Well, it WAS an uprising! — Robert A George (@RobGeorge) January...
    Chuck Schumer is earning some mockery online after he accidentally said that the U.S. Senate will decide whether former President Donald Trump incited an “erection” against the United States. As the New York Post reported, the new Senate majority leader spoke on Friday about the upcoming impeachment process, where the out-of-office Trump could face the potential of being barred from running for office again in his life. “Make no mistake, there will be a trial and when that trial ends, senators will have to decide if they believe Donald John Trump incited the erection against the United States,” Schumer said, before quickly correction himself and saying “insurrection.” As the report noted, the quick slip of the tongue wasn’t lost on the internet. Many took to Twitter to mock Schumer’s fumbling of words and the accidentally inappropriate phrase. “Okay, this is funny… Chuck Schumer’s face when he realized he just said...

    Chuck Schumer said Donald Trump incited an 'erection' instead of an insurrection on the Senate floor Friday, sending social media users laughing that 'we're in for a long, hard trial next week'. The Senate Majority Leader made the hilarious gaffe while announcing that the House's article of impeachment will be sent to the Senate Monday, kicking off the start of Trump's impeachment trial.  Schumer wanted to impress on lawmakers that the former president was responsible for inciting the MAGA mob that stormed the US Capitol on January 6 in a riot that left five - including a Capitol police officer - dead.  But the Democrat stumbled over his words, muddling 'insurrection' for 'erection' and giving his speech another meaning entirely.   Chuck Schumer said Donald Trump incited an 'erection' instead of an insurrection on the Senate floor Friday, sending social media users laughing that 'we're in for a long, hard...
    Juliette Kayyem, who was the assistant secretary at the Department of Homeland Security under President Barack Obama’s administration, believes that Donald Trump is the “spiritual leader” of a “domestic terrorism movement.” “I don’t feel comfortable calling Trump a terrorist just because I think that then we’re going to get into that debate,” she said to Dahlia Lithwick during a recent episode of the Amicus legal podcast. “But it’s important to say that he’s the spiritual and operational leader of a domestic terrorism movement and that’s where we’ve landed.” The former Obama official argued that Trump is fueling stochastic terrorism, which Dictionary.com defines as “public demonization of a person or group” that leads to the “incitement of a violent act.” This act, the website said, is “statistically probable but whose specifics cannot be predicted.” According to Kayyem, the attempted terrorism cases and reported increase in activity of white supremacists under Trump...

    Democratic Senate leader Chuck Schumer on Friday made an unfortunate slip of the tongue as he slammed former President Donald Trump’s conduct related to the Jan 6 Capitol riot. Schumer was informing senators about the plans for an impeachment trial of the ex-president. The House last week impeached the president for "incitement of insurrection" for his alleged role in encouraging protesters who went on to storm the Capitol. It was at that point when Schumer made a somewhat phallic flub.

Co-host of “The View” Ana Navarro noted the article of impeachment against Trump will be delivered to the Senate on Monday and asked Buttigieg if he believes Trump will be convicted. “I don’t know, but certainly what’s different this time is you have Republicans and Democrats agreeing on, some Republicans, agreeing with Democrats on this,” Buttigieg said. He added, “I think it’s very important that it be bipartisan. Look, accountability is part of unity and that’s something the Senate will have to take seriously in addition to all of the other business of the country. It’s not a small task, but it’s really important for us to be able to move on.” Watch his comments...
    Former White House Chief of Staff Rience Priebus said Friday that President Joe Biden is unifying the Republican Party with his executive orders. “What Biden did was make it instantly easier to draw the lines and have everyone get in their corners and make the Republican versus Democrat dynamic live on. And he did it in one day,” Priebus told Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom.” Biden began signing executive orders countering those issued by former President Donald Trump, including instructions that the United States should rejoin the Paris climate accord. “So the R versus D dynamic is back and it’s because he didn’t take his time doing the things he wanted to do.” (RELATED: Lindsey Graham: ‘If You’re Wanting To Erase Donald Trump From The [Republican] Party, You’re Going To Get Erased’) Although Priebus acknowledged that it was difficult for the Republican Party to lose both the presidency and its...
    Democrats are really eager to get former President Donald Trump's second impeachment trial started.

    Newly-installed Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) rose to the Senate floor Friday morning to declare that Senators would have to decide whether “Donald John Trump incited the erection.” He later corrected himself, accusing Trump of inciting the Jan. 6 “insurrection.” The Freudian slip, perhaps betraying the excitement among the Democratic caucus, came after Schumer announced that the Senate expected to receive the official article of impeachment from the House of Representatives on Monday, Jan. 25. The article declares that then-President Trump “engaged in high Crimes and Misdemeanors by inciting violence against the Government of the United States.” It then alleges that because Trump made “false claims” in his speech at the Ellipse in Washington, DC, his audience, “Thus incited by President Trump,” later went on to riot at the Capitol. The “inciting” speech is presumed to have preceded the violent action, and to have been the immediate cause of...
    Donald Trump is looking at a potentially disastrous impeachment trial as he has no clear strategy — and no legal team that could carry it out if he did — a new report claims. Bill Palmer, founder of the political news outlet Palmer Report, noted that the former president appears to be in serious trouble as he faces the prospect of being convicted. A prominent critic of the now-former president, Palmer wrote that Trump had no lawyers or strategy yet, and does not appear to have much help coming soon. “To that end, Trump’s Senate impeachment trial could begin as soon as next week – and CNBC is reporting that he still has no lawyers and no legal strategy for the trial,” he wrote. “This is notable because Trump relied on laughably inept lawyers while trying to overthrow the election result, but now he can’t get anyone at all.
