Two states are now pursuing criminal charges against Trump

Because as normal Trump they can do that. According to reports and the New York Times, the state of New York and the state of Georgia have both joined forces in opening a case against Trump. It appears in Georgia the reason (at least in part) for that case is none other than Trump 's phone calls to the state's Sec of State. The Times notes that the potential charges vary quite widely. Some of those charges include election interference, attempting to interfere with someone's election duties (the Sec of State), and of course multiple in relation to his phone call to GA officials. It's yet another major turn of events for Trump who so far has largely avoided all prosecution for his crimes against the United States and beyond.

The U.S House is expected to impeach Trump a 2nd time today

Today mark's yet another historic day in America. According to reports in Washington and the U.S House itself Donald Trump is expected to face a 2nd vote today that would make him the first President to be impeached twice. It remains unclear whether or not the Senate will actually follow suit and convict, although, numerous reports indicate that Mitch McConnell wants him purged. Interestingly, Mike Pence reportedly is not on board with neither the 25th amendment nor impeachment. According to a letter signed by Pence (see below), he called the joint-moves "political games" as charged by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The New York Times ran a story this morning citing several media reports and indicators in Washington that Mitch McConnell is moving to oust and convict Donald Trump f...

This is how much Trump ‘s impeachment is costing taxpayers from the public purse

Thankfully for the sake of not being a drain on public money --- estimates out since December reveal that the impeachment saga cost far less than that of Bill Clinton 's 1994 trial. According to the Heritage Foundation, Trump 's trial cost the American public purse about $3.06m. The Daily Signal notes that this is a pretty good estimate of a final cost as the impeachment trial is believed to end next week as Trump 's acquittal is all but guaranteed by the Republican controlled Senate. Democrats hoping to remove the President from office, uh, now only have the ballot to look at in hopes of swinging a massive wave in their favour.

Articles of Impeachment against Trump could come as soon as Tuesday

That is if Rep Adam Schiff 's report is approved by the Judiciary Committee. According to reports out of Washington, Schiff is set to hand over a comprehensive report on the impeachment inquiry to the committee responsible for the next phase of the inquiry. That next phase does indeed include whether or not officials will bring articles of impeachment against Donald Trump --- which is highly probable at this point.  Schiff has made it openly clear that officials have gathered bountiful evidence to prove crimes were actually committed. Rep Jerry Nadler has already confirmed that the White House has been notified that they have a week to decide if lawyers will be present. Trump,  however, will actually be unfortunately in the U.K this week. Multiple sources are reporting that the decisi...

Here’s where Trump went wrong with that Ukranian phone call

And now the world has seen that in a newly released transcript from the 25 July phone call. According to records released by the White House, Donald Trump appears to have implicated himself in crimes that could very well and finally end his Presidency. Bloomberg/Getty Images Initially, Donald Trump claimed that the phone call between himself and Ukrainian leaders "was innocent". When in fact it appears that the phone call was anything but and now more questions are present than ever before. One stand out moment from the transcript directly implicates Donald Trump in committing the same act he claimed he didn't: attempting to influence a foreign power. “There’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about tha...

Reports: House Democrats convening to “further” investigate removing Donald Trump from office

U.S. House of Representatives Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler on Friday said the committee is considering "all remedies" including recommendation of "articles of impeachment" in the wake of Mueller's testimony on his investigation into the Trump 2016 election. House Democrats and their swathes of lawyers spent their Friday in federal court in today's political development of the day.

Since Mueller have his consequentially confusing testimony to the House earlier this week, the number of powerful Democrats demanding articles of impeachment against Trump has grown to 100. Thi...

Donald Trump: If I get impeached, blame my supporters

Another day, another lame excuse from Donald Trump.  According to Trump himself, who spoke at a rally in Montana,  it'll be the fault of his supporters if he is indeed impeached. "You didn't go out to vote -- that's the only way it could happen," Trump said during a rally in Billings, Montana."I'll be the only President in history they'll say: 'What a job he's done! By the way, we're impeaching him,'" Trump said."This election, you aren't just voting for a candidate, you are voting for which party controls Congress," the President said. "Very important thing. Very important thing."  The  comments came after Trump appeared to be stumping for a number of Republican candidates challenging Democrats for a Senate seat in the state.

Trump grilling witnesses to find out what Mueller asked in interviews: NYT

WASHINGTON --   Interesting developments in the Trump v Mueller case.   According to a lengthy  article out in the New York Times today,  Mueller is "fully aware that Trump  is indeed going to each and every witness asking what was discussed and about whom during their interviews with the Special Counsel". This is where it gets interesting.  The  Times notes that one particular interview is catching heat, and actually, controversy.  The interview regarding Don McGahn is specifically in the news, because,   a previously published New York Times article claimed that Trump had ordered McGahn to attempt to have Mueller fired "or else". The initial interview, perhaps,  didn't go the way Trump had apparently planned.  The Times also notes that McGahn "refused to deny  that Trump had asked ...

Here’s what we know about Donald Trump’s rumoured resignation 

While only hearsay, some sleuthing around Washington pieced together where the initial rumour came from. The reports first surfaced Friday and claimed that Trump was considering resignation amid numerous reports of corruption and a testimony negatively aimed at his persons from Michael Flynn. Michael Flynn, Trump's former national security adviser,  reportedly came forward as we previously reported to the FBI. In his comings, Flynn,  agreed to provide testimony and information about the long rumoured connection between Trump and Russia. Now, here's where we believe this rumour may have come from.  Increasingly in the past week or so, Ivanka Trump, is suddenly getting much closer to the Oval Office.  After initially denying that she would take a WH role, suddenly, he...
