The Democrats are going to meet today to decide on impeaching President Trump, with a statement by House Speaker Pelosi to follow.
Impeachment. Not over the Russian collusion/obstruction fiasco but, this time, over a “whistleblower” complaint that is based upon hearsay. A complaint that nobody in Congress has even seen. A complaint that has already been determined by Department of Justice lawyers to not fall under the law concerning intelligence community whistleblowers, simply because the person who made the complaint is not complaining about anyone within the intelligence community and the person the complaint allegedly concerns is not under the purview of the intelligence community.

Attorney General William Barr sent his summary of the conclusions of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report to Congress this afternoon. Of note:
The Special Counsel’s investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in its efforts to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Begging forgiveness for the above photo (which shows the nit of a human head louse), nevertheless I have a nit that I’m going to pick.
A story in the UK news reports the suicide of a former member of the previous U.S. administration.
President Trump will address the nation this afternoon on the topic of the shutdown and the “humanitarian crisis” at the border. Despite much speculation, nobody knows for certain what he intends to announce. Will he declare an emergency and have the wall built immediately? One can only hope.

The past week has provided Democrats many opportunities to display their true colors. No surprise! We the People have not misunderestimated their mendacity.

President Trump has rightly pulled the top secret security clearance of the former CIA director under Barack Obama, John Brennan. Mainstream media and progressives seem to have settled upon the notion that President Trump pulled Brennan’s clearance, and may do the same for other former members of Obama’s administration, out of revenge, spite, to violate their free speech rights and/or, especially, to keep them from cashing in on the benefits of having security clearance.

Progressives, including the mainstream media, are apoplectic because President Trump rescinded former CIA director John Brennan’s top secret security clearance. The president is currently in the process of deciding whether or not other disgraced members of the Obama administration (James Clapper, James Comey, Susan Rice, Michael Hayden, Andrew McCabe, Bruce Ohr) deserve to have their clearances pulled as well. (Hell, yes!)
Progressives ridiculously cry out that removing top secret clearance from former Obama officials violates their First Amendment rights, although nobody is stopping any of them from speaking.
