Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's former personal attorney and fixer, has accepted an invitation to testify in an open session before Congress next month.

The hearing, set for Feb. 7 before the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, was announced Thursday afternoon by Rep. Elijah Cummings, a Maryland Democrat, who is the new chairman of the committee. read more

In his annual public address before the nation, Russian President Vladimir Putin proclaimed that America's global influence has come to end -- a development he attributed in large part to Trump's presidency. Speaking about the position of the U.S. on the global stage, Putin celebrated the waning influence of what he described as America's "monopoly" on power, saying it would give Russia the ability to exert more influence in the world. "Empires often think they can make some little mistakes. Because they're so powerful," Putin said, according to the Financial Times. "But when the number of these mistakes keeps growing, it reaches a level they cannot sustain." He admonished the U.S. for having a "sense of impunity," saying, "This is the result of the monopoly from a unipolar world." "Luckily this monopoly is disappearing," he added. "It's almost done." read more

Trump ignores every National Security Adviser and turns over US Military over to Erdogan. Virtually every US National Security Adviser says no. Erdogan says Yes. Trump meekly complies. This amounts to Abdication by Trump to the will of the Dictator. He is tough on poor, Assylum seekers, but lets Erdogan grab USA by the Pussy and get away with it.

BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - China and the United States have agreed to halt new tariffs as both nations engage in trade talks with the goal of reaching an agreement within 90 days, the White House said on Saturday after U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping held high-stakes talks in Argentina. Trump agreed not to boost tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods to 25 percent on Jan. 1 as previously announced, as China agreed to buy an unspecified but "very substantial" amount of agricultural, energy, industrial and other products, the White House said. The White House also said China "is open to approving the previously unapproved Qualcomm Inc

Hey, folks, all this talk about whether this is a Dem Shutdown, or a Trump Shutdown is Bull Crap.

Allow me...
The Dems and Repubs came to a bi-partisan agreement on funding the govt, with partial funding for the wall, which was OKed by The White House. They did their job.

The House, Senate and POTUS were all in agreement. The agreement of those parties used to be enough to pass legislation, way back in the old days, pre 2016. Today, passing a law requires the consent of the House, the Senate, the POTUS and FOXTALK.

As we all know, FOXTALK along with Right Wing Radio, exercised their constitutional Veto power and pantsed and spanked the POTUS in public for his compromise agreement to accept a less than full funding dollar amount, keep the Government running, and try to get a larger funding number through negotiating.

Yes, that's right, FOXTALK vetoed the legislation. They did this by commanding POTUS to withdraw his support for the temporary Funding bill. When the Bill was vetoed by FOXTALK, the Government had to be shut down.

Since Trump relies on FOXTALK to keep his base of Deplorables angry and agitated, and for 'Policy' input, (cause he doesnt know a gawdamn thing, and his 'C minus' list of talent in his skeleton staff in his Administration are near as dumb as he is) so he meekly obeyed his direct reports, the Right-wing talking heads, and had no choice but to renege on his agreement for the Temp Funding Bill, and proceeded to Shut down the Govt. He told us all it made him proud, and that he doesnt care if it stays closed for many months or years.

Shawn and Rush will make the determination as to when it is OK to let American President accept a compromise and reopen the Government for the Peoples Business.

This isnt McConnel's shutdown.

This isnt Trump's Shutdown.

It isnt a Democratic Shutdown.

THIS IS A HANNITY AND LIMBAUGH SHUTDOWN.

The New Co-equal Branch of the Government, FOXTALK. demanded the shutdown. Trump followed their orders.

How long it lasts is up Rush and Shawn.

They actually should have an Office in the White House; so the Directors of FOXTALK could more easily, summon the Dems, Repubs and POTUS to a mandatory meeting, where Rush, Shawn, and Ann Coulter could present their demands to the POTUS, Dem and Repub leaders.

This process should be seen as the 'new normal'.

It's Totally Normal!

And, the Shutdown, like every other flaming bag of dog poo Trump leaves at our front door, serves Putin's interest, not America's

Bruce, he, and IMHO a significant number of Law Makers, are, as you suggested, complicit.

When the report comes out, and assuminng it is as devastating to Trump as it is expected to be, we must open investigations concerning 'What did Law Makers know, discuss, strategize upon, act, plan, re their own knowledge of Russian Connections to the POTUS. When did they become aware that Russia was involved in the Republican campaign illegally? What actions did they and their staff take to enable the conspiracy, or to protect America from the conspiracy".

We must investigate which law makers received Russian money in the form of Campaign contributions. (Spoiler alert, it looks like every Congressman, Congresswoman and Senator who cashed checks from the NRA would likely qualify.)
.
Congressmen, Senators, and staffers who had knowledge of contacts in common with same Russian players who are involved in the Conspiracy to defraud the Government of The United States must be interviewed under oath.

It is paramount that the full depth and breadth of this Coup d'etat attempt, be fully understood. Who participated? Who abetted? Who had knowledge of it? Who knowingly deflected from it, covered it up, hindered the investigation. Who had knowledge of a conspiracy of silence and misdirection intended to thwart the investigation.
Who was offered political rewards to help cover up the attempted Coup d'tate? What other here-to-for unknown players in the conspiracy are out there?

It is also imperative that criminal penalties be sought in cases where laws were broken. No Nixonian resignation immediately followed by gracious pardons.

For the safety of the nation's future, we must punish the guilty parties.

NO 'Get Out Of Jail Free' cards permitted.
