Jordan: Republicans to subpoena whistleblower to testify in public hearing

Source: The Hill

Republicans intend to subpoena the government whistleblower to testify in the House's impeachment investigation into President Trump's dealings with Ukraine, according to Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio).

The effort is not likely to bear fruit, as Democrats have rejected the idea of ousting the anonymous figure, citing safety concerns, and they have veto power over any GOP subpoena requests for witness testimony.

Keanu Reeves is a lucky man.

His new girlfriend seems like a really interesting person.

Keanu Reeves made a public appearance with his new girlfriend, the artist Alexandra Grant.

After years of silence and keeping his personal life completely private, Keanu Reeves, the internet’s favorite celebrity, made a public appearance with his new girlfriend, the artist Alexandra Grant at the LACMA Art + Film Gala red carpet.

It had been years since Reeves had been known to have a girlfriend. His last known relationship was with the actress Jennifer Syme. They lost their child in 1999, and she died in a car accident in 2001.

Alexandra Grant is a 46-year-old artist from Fairview Park, Ohio, currently residing in Los Angeles. She spent part of her early life in Mexico, France, and Spain, and can speak English, Spanish, and French fluently. She got a Bachelor’s degree in History and Studio Art from Swarthmore College, and in 2000, obtained an MFA in Drawing and Painting.

According to her website, her work focuses on the use of text and language, and asks questions like, “How do the languages we speak and the images we see form how we think and exchange ideas? How can artists and writers work to create and influence culture in an increasingly technology-driven world?”

Grant’s work is shown in several museum collections, such as: the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, the Blanton Museum of Art in Austin, and the Art Gallery of Ontario.


T.I. Said He Goes To The Gynecologist With His Daughter Every Year To "Check Her Hymen"

The rapper added, "I will say, as of her 18th birthday, her hymen is still intact."

Rapper and actor T.I. said in a podcast interview that aired Tuesday that he goes with his 18-year-old daughter to the gynecologist every year to "check her hymen" and make sure it's "still intact."

In an interview with Nazanin Mandi and Nadia Moham on Ladies Like Us, T.I. talked about his parenting style, among other topics. When asked about whether he's had the "sex talk" with his daughters, he pointed to his approach with his eldest daughter, 18-year-old Deyjah Harris, who's in her first year of college.

"Not only have we had the conversation. We have yearly trips to the gynecologist to check her hymen," T.I. said. "Yes, I go with her."

He then mentioned that after her 16th birthday party, he "put a sticky note on the door: 'Gyno. Tomorrow. 9:30.'"

"So we’ll go and sit down and the doctor comes and talk, and the doctor’s maintaining a high level of professionalism," T.I. said. "He’s like, ‘You know, sir, I have to, in order to share information’ — I’m like, 'Deyjah, they want you to sign this so we can share information. Is there anything you would not want me to know? See, Doc? Ain't no problem.'"

Amy McGrath: The Letter


Senate Republicans consider including Bidens in Trump impeachment trial

Senate Republicans are privately debating whether they should use an impeachment trial of President Trump to scrutinize former vice president Joe Biden and his son Hunter as some Trump allies push to call them as witnesses while others dismiss the suggestion as a risky political ploy.

The ongoing discussions are a revealing glimpse into the fault lines in the GOP ahead of a possible trial of Trump in the upper chamber, where there are varying appetites among Senate Republicans for the type of political combat relished by the president and his most hardcore defenders.

Among a group of Trump’s allies inside and outside Congress, there is intense and growing interest in countering the House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry with their own scrutiny of Hunter Biden’s overseas business dealings in Ukraine and China. Because his father was vice president at the time, these allies believe it could be a way of explaining why Trump pressed Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in a July 25 phone call to “look into” the Bidens, who have denied any wrongdoing.

That effort gained steam on Capitol Hill last week at a private lunch where Republican Sens. Rand Paul (Ky.) and John N. Kennedy (La.) raised the idea of summoning Hunter Biden, according to two people familiar with the exchange who, like others in this article, spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly. Paul took his private push public at a campaign rally with the president Monday night in Kentucky.


This is Trump arriving in Louisiana to help another candidate.

The Mueller Report Illustrated

A forthcoming book and six-part digital series on the obstruction investigation

Written and designed by The Washington Post and illustrated by artist Jan Feindt, “The Mueller Report Illustrated: The Obstruction Investigation” brings to life the findings of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III in an engaging and illuminating presentation.

When it was released on April 18, Mueller’s report laid out two major conclusions: that Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election had been “sweeping and systematic,” and that the evidence did not establish that Trump or his campaign had conspired with the Kremlin. The special counsel left one significant question unanswered: whether the president broke the law by trying to block the probe.

Along with his findings, Mueller provided the public with an extraordinary historical record: a fly-on-the-wall account of life in the White House, told through the eyes of the men and women who served the president and described what they saw to federal investigators. The book and six-part digital series is drawn directly from episodes detailed in the Mueller report in which prosecutors found evidence of possible obstruction of justice, as well as congressional testimony and Washington Post reporting.
