The news is coming too fast and I'm getting confused, so let me get this straight...

Stacey Dash beat up Rudy Giuliani at a Civil War picnic hosted by Jeff Flake in Australia all because Chris Collins resigned?

Sometimes you just have to break the rules.

Republicans have been throwing out a lot of accusations about Biden/Ukraine/ corruption.

Even if those accusations were true ( I don't believe they are), wouldn't it still be improper for Trump to ask for a favor from Zelensky to dig up dirt on Biden?

Republicans seem to be justifying Trump's phone conversation and withholding of military aid because of Hunter Biden's association with a Ukranian company.

The Divine Miss M certainly has a way with words.

While we’re at it let’s impitch
That creep we all call #MoscowMitch
He drags his feet on every vote
His main job’s holding Donald’s coat
He thinks that killing laws is fun
Even if your kid dies from a gun.
He’ll run again but he won’t get far.
Next year he’s living in his car.

Gun bill "dead": White House says impeachment killed "chances of legislative progress"

Republicans have ended negotiations on a bill that would expand background checks for gun purchases because of House Democrats’ push for an impeachment inquiry into President Trump.

A Senate staffer told Washington Free Beacon reporter Stephen Gutowski that “gun legislation is dead, at least for the time being, because of the impeachment inquiry” that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Tuesday.


Gutowski reported that the White House was still floating proposals as recently as last week but “it seems the idea now is work on that front will slow or stop as White House focuses on impeachment.”

"I think the impeachment stuff sucks up all the oxygen but things can always change on a dime as happened this week," a second Senate staffer told Gutowski.

What a crock. Mitch is already on record saying he won't bring up gun control unless Trump says he'll sign it. Democrats in the House have passed gun control legislation, but McConnell refuses to bring it to the floor of the Senate. Then they have the gall to blame Democrats for their inaction while more people die in mass shootings.

Can anyone say hypocrisy?

McConnell says he won't take up gun bill unless Trump says he will sign it

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday he will not put a gun bill of any kind on the Senate floor unless President Donald Trump says he would sign it into law.

Days after a West Texas mass shooting that killed at least seven people, the Kentucky Republican said on "The Hugh Hewitt Show" he expects to get an answer from the Trump administration within the next week on what, if anything, it is prepared to support.
"If the President is in favor of a number of things that he has discussed openly and publicly, and I know that if we pass it, it will become law, I'll put it on the floor," McConnell said on the radio show.
McConnell has for months blocked nearly every piece of legislation passed by the Democratic-led House, including gun measures popular with the public that enjoy bipartisan support on Capitol Hill. In the wake of a string of mass shootings that have rocked the nation, frustrated Democrats have been mounting a push against McConnell and Republican leadership to take up gun legislation.

Here's a bit of interesting information regarding the "transcript":

Memorandum of Phone Conversation: call was 9:03 - 9:33

Estimated time it would take to say all of the words released in the memo: 11 minutes.

Checked by the great @mike_melia in our broadcast software (time of spoken words matters a lot on TV) from @NewsHour
