Trump really is losing it. How long does he think he can gin up his base by running the country the way he used to run a reality TV show?

To suggest that criticizing the President warrants impeachment demonstrates that he truly has become an unhinged megalomaniac. And an ignorant one at that since the impeachment process does not apply to Senators.

President Trump resumed his attacks on Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) Saturday morning, calling the 2012 GOP presidential nominee a “pompous ‘ass’ ” and calling for the senator’s impeachment a day after Romney criticized Trump for asking foreign leaders to investigate a political opponent.

“Somebody please wake up Mitt Romney and tell him that my conversation with the Ukrainian President was a congenial and very appropriate one, and my statement on China pertained to corruption, not politics. If Mitt worked this hard on Obama, he could have won. Sadly, he choked!” Trump tweeted.

Trump continued, “Mitt Romney never knew how to win. He is a pompous ‘ass’ who has been fighting me from the beginning, except when he begged me for my endorsement for his Senate run (I gave it to him), and when he begged me to be Secretary of State (I didn’t give it to him). He is so bad for R’s!”

Hours later, Trump suggested, with no evidence, that Utah voters regretted their choice and that Romney should be impeached. Romney was elected with 62.6 percent of the vote in 2018.

“I’m hearing that the Great People of Utah are considering their vote for their Pompous Senator, Mitt Romney, to be a big mistake. I agree! He is a fool who is playing right into the hands of the Do Nothing Democrats! #IMPEACHMITTROMNEY,” Trump tweeted.

A U.S. senator cannot be impeached. Instead, the Constitution gives the House or Senate the power to expel one of its own members by a two-thirds vote.

Trump and his allies have launched similar attacks on other GOP members who’ve criticized the president, part of a broader effort to keep rank-and-file members in line.

After Trump suggested on the White House lawn Thursday that China investigate former vice president Joe Biden and his son Hunter, Romney denounced the president, one of the few Republicans to do so.

Jacob Wohl & Jack Burkman can now add #StolenValor to their list of shameful claims: unsurprisingly, the ex-Marine they brought in to claim sexual involvement with Elizabeth Warren turns out to NOT be an Afghanistan combat veteran, as previously claimed.

Chinese authorities have been moving Muslim minorities in northwest China from detention centers to formal prisons, their relatives tell NPR.

“They are targeting people somehow related to religion,” said one man whose brothers are being held in Xinjiang.

Ok…here’s what happens when you own the power…and threaten friendly relations (#FoxNetworkIsTrumpNetworkBarrHelps) . Shep Smith who usually criticizes T is stepping down as Chief News Editor

I was just coming over here to report on this. Mind-blowing. Looks like Barr the Fixer stepped in to fix Fox’s attempted course correction away from Trump.

Conflicting sources state that he was escorted out by security, and it’s noted that even the guy on AFTER him didn’t know he was leaving.
Note that the main source saying he was not escorted out is a Fox News spokesperson…




#158

So he was made to quit - #fired. Unfortuntely, getting escorted by security is standard operating procedure in entertainment companies…and it does make it look like he’s a criminal.

Yes, and he was in charge of their breaking news division. Meaning he had editorial power. So this is more than a change of faces; it’s policy change.

Dragging in the Whistleblower who is supposed to be protected. :tired_face:

Lindsey Graham vows to have whistleblowers testify publicly if Democrats impeach Trump

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., vowed to expose the anonymous whistleblowers against President Trump if Democrats move forward with impeachment; at the same time, he warned against Trump having China pursue an investigation of Joe Biden.

A second unidentified whistleblower was confirmed Sunday morning, reportedly with firsthand information to support some of the allegations another whistleblower made in a complaint filed in August regarding a July 25 phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Graham said that if Democrats follow through on their desire to impeach Trump, he will make sure that the whistleblowers will have to come forward and testify.

Here’s what’s going to happen: if the whistleblowers’ allegations are turned into an impeachment article it’s imperative that the whistleblower be interviewed in public, under oath, and cross-examined,” Graham told Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” promising that “if that doesn’t happen in the House, I’ll make sure it happens in the Senate.”

Yes…deeply disturbing.
