GAO report says White House violated law by withholding aid.

Roberts sworn in as Impeachment Judge today. Trial officially starts with Senators sworn in as Jurors.

GAO also stated OBAMA violated laws when he released begdahl ? its so partisan its not even funny
GAO said Obama violated the law when he released and transported five terrorists from Guantanomo Bay. Congress -- both houses -- passed a law explicitly forbidding the government from spending any money to release and transport Guantanamo inmates and Obama did it anyway. Where was Nancy then?

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

Illegal immigrant crossings fall 78% and once overcrowded cells are empty
First is daily apprehensions, a number that hit 4,600 at the height of the latest crisis in May. That has now dropped to 1,300.
What’s more, he [U.S. Customs and Border Protection commissioner Mark A. Morgan] said, the 21-daily average is below 1,000, a 78% cut. “That’s a dramatic reduction,” he said, in updating the numbers released last week.



Then there are the numbers of illegal immigrants “in custody.” That was a horrific 20,000 in May for an agency that has just 4,000 beds.
Now a quarter of those beds are unused.



Noting that Congress has done little to change outdated immigration laws, he said that Trump took action and built relationships with Mexico and other Central American nations that now hold immigrants seeking to come into the U.S. until the government gives them the green light.

5. But since he is convicted would all of his appointees to the judicial branch be removed thus opening positions for an extremely left leaning judicial branch.
Appointments to federal judgeships, including Scotus, are lifetime appointments. I See nothing in the impeachment rules that would remotely suggest that just because the president was impeached and convicted any of those judges could just be removed. Each one would have to be impeached bt House and convicted by the Senate.

Alcee Hastings knows how that part works. It’s a blot that he was allowed to be elected to anything after being removed from his judgeship for bribery.

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

Ed Driscoll (who highlighted this on Instapundit) is right, this must have hurt CNN to publish:

CNN Poll: US economy receives its best ranking in nearly 20 years

One of the purposes of the Schiff Show that is "impeachment", withholding articles, etc, is to give the MSM fodder to bash Trump and crowd out as much good news about him as possible. Combined with Quid Pro Joe's statement at the debates about not hesitating to make everyone employed in f-r-a-c-k-i-n-g jobless, along with other elements of the Green Nude Eel, the Democratic Party is fully ready to trash the economy of the United States.

MAGA 2020

* the naughty word filter wants to blot out f-r-a-c-k-i-n-g when written normally. Somebody fix this.

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

And while the House circus featured impeachment and fire-breathing hissy fits, the Senate filled 11 more federal judgeship vacancies with Trump nominees.

In the words of Mitch McConnell:
My motto is leave no vacancy behind.

Apparently just now coming to light, Clinton foundation accepted $1 million birthday gift for Bill from Qatar. While Hillary was Secretary of State. But she failed to notify the department of state of the gift. Like she promised to. In writing.

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

Trump continues to ...trump:

Trump Ends Liberal Domination of 9th Circuit Appeals Court as Senate Confirms Lawrence Vandyke

He hasn't flipped the 9th yet but with two more of Trump's nominees confirmed this week 13 of the 29 judges on the 9th have been appointed by Republican presidents. You always have the potential for squishiness, but this does make it much less likely that a 9th Circuit panel of 3 judges (which is how most of their appellate decisions are made) will have two or all three judges be leftish.

Trump has seated more than 170 federal judges.

MAGA 2020.

Dow surges 350 points on strong jobs report, S&P 500 erases losses for the week

The NYT's Nobel prize economist Paul Krugman, on the night Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election:

"It really does now look like President Donald J. Trump. And markets are plunging. When might we expect them to recover? A first-pass answer is never."

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

https://pjmedia.com/instapundit/harvard ... -this-mor/
HARVARD LAW PROF TELLS A BIG FAT ONE: House Judiciary Committee Democrats led their hearing this morning with Harvard’s Noah Feldman. Later in the day under intense questioning by Rep. Matthew Gaetz (R-Flor.), Feldman claimed he “was an impeachment skeptic before July 25.”
That’s a flat-out misrepresentation by Feldman of his views because he was among the early advocates of impeachment, beginning March 7, 2017, barely six weeks after President Donald Trump’s inauguration. See three more examples in 2017 and 2018 of Feldman clearly pushing impeachment of Trump: here, here and here.
