Post acquittal

Immediately announce new impeachment inquiries, send out subpoenas, hold hearings and get the entire process started again. It's not a strategy, it's their sworn duty to confront Executive misbehavior and they have tons to work with here.

Pelosi intro at SOTU

Couldn't she introduce him as "the recently impeached POTUS", no law against it I believe?

"“President Trump is wrong that John Bolton didn’t say anything about the Trump-Ukraine Scandal at the time the President fired him. He said something to me," Engel said in his statement.

“He and I spoke by telephone on September 23," he added. "On that call, Ambassador Bolton suggested to me—unprompted—that the committee look into the recall of Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch. He strongly implied that something improper had occurred around her removal as our top diplomat in Kyiv."


Sept. 24: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announces that the House is moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry, saying, “No one is above the law.”

I'm thinking once Pelosi knew Bolton's testimony would corroborate the already secured evidence, she launched the Inquiry.

US military mistakenly circulates letter suggesting they'd remove US troop from Iraq

Source: CNN

The top US general said Monday a letter suggesting the US would withdraw troops from Iraq was released by mistake and poorly worded, telling reporters "that's not what's happening."

Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley sought to address the confusion that began after the leak of aletter to the Iraqi government from US Command in Baghdad suggesting US troops would be withdrawn from the country.

"That letter is a draft. It was a mistake, it was unsigned, it should not have been released ... (it was) poorly worded, implies withdrawal, that is not what's happening," Milley said.

"It's an honest mistake ... it should not have been sent," he added.

Iraq Reports US Airstrike Hit Convoy of Medics North of Baghdad
Strike killed six, wounded three, destroyed two medical vans
Jason Ditz Posted onJanuary 3, 2020CategoriesNewsTagsIraq

With Iraq and the region still reeling after Thursday night’s US drone strike on the Baghdad International Airport, an attack which killed Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani as well as top members of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), a new US strike was reported Friday night.

Iraqi state media identified the new attack as another US airstrike, near the Taji stadium north of Baghdad. The attack hit a convoy of medics, destroying two medical vans, and killing at least six people, also identified as medical personnel.

Reports suggest that the attack was intended to target a commander within the PMU, and while they declined to say who they thought the US was trying to kill, Twitter reports after the strike initially claimed Ahl al-Haq leader Qais al-Khazali had been killed. This has since been denied, and it appears no PMU commanders were even present in the convoy.

Has this been disproven or unconfirmed?

Witnesses MIA

Wondering why we've never heard testimony from Trump's accountant, Allen Weisselberg?
And if Mueller won't get chatty, how about questioning some of his legal team?
Where are these people?
