3 days ago   |   By

Summary List Placement President Donald Trump on Wednesday urged calm and decried violence while the House debated impeaching him for provoking the deadly Capitol riots on January 6.
"In light of reports of more demonstrations, I urge that there must be NO violence, NO lawbreaking and NO vandalism of any kind," Trump said in a statement. "That is not what I stand for, and it is not what America stands for. I call on ALL Americans to help ease tensions and calm tempers. Thank You."

Lindsey Graham, who denounced Trump after the Capitol siege, opposes impeachment and implies Mitch McConnell is 'making the problem worse'

3 days ago   |   By

Summary List Placement Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham blasted the House impeachment effort against President Donald Trump on Wednesday, and appeared to slight Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for his rumored support of the process.
"The House impeachment process seeks to legitimize a snap impeachment totally void of due process. No hearings. No witnesses. It is a rushed process that, over time, will become a threat to future presidents," Graham said in a statement. "As to Senate leadership, I fear they are making the problem worse, not better."
Though Graham did not mention McConnell...

Liz and Dick Cheney Are No American Heroes

3 days ago   |   By

In the wake of the deadly January 6 raid on the U.S. Capitol by supporters of Donald Trump, some Republicans have broken away to support impeachment or otherwise criticize the president for catalyzing the mob. Leading the charge, according to some dewy-eyed commentators, are former Vice President Dick Cheney and his scion, Congresswoman Liz Cheney of Wyoming.

But a resurgence of the latter is hardly cause for celebration. It...
