Senator Amy Klobuchar is ready to make an announcement come Sunday on whether she is running for President in the 2020 elections.
Senator Klobuchar will make the announcement at Boom Island Park in Minneapolis. It’s likely the Senator from Minnesota will say she is in.
Democratic Vote on Wednesday is a Problem For Trump
The House Intelligence Committee will have a vote scheduled for Wednesday to decide whether to hand over testimony transcripts to Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Who is on that list? Donald Trump, Jr.
Per Rep. Jackie Speier, she believes Don Jr. lied to the committee “on at least two occasions.”
Who else has appeared before the committee?
- Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law;
- Brad Parscale, digital media director of the 2016 campaign;
- Keith Schiller, Trump’s former bodyguard;
- Erik Prince, founder of the private security firm Blackwater;
- Hope Hicks, former White House communications director;
- Felix Sater, a former Trump real estate associate;
- Steve Bannon, Trump’s former White House chief strategist;
- Alexander Nix, former CEO of the political consulting firm Cambridge Analytica;
This has already been a busy week for the Democrats. Subpoenas and hearings could not have been done sooner due to Republican Kevin McCarthy taking his time in making appointments for the committee.
It took more than four weeks for McCarthy to make his appointments, no doubt a move to slow down the Democrats. Republicans will continue to do everything within the power to slow down the Democrats, trying to push everything until 2020.
In addition, Republicans will push for President Trump to get a second term in the White House because without that, Trump will not have the power of the Executive Office backing him up, subjecting him to criminal indictments and prosecution.
The statute of limitations on possible Trump crimes expires in 2021, which means if the Democrats take back control of the Senate, you will see impeachment proceedings initiated against the President.
What else happened this week?
Federal prosecutors from the Manhattan office have issued a subpoena on President Trump’s inauguration committee, seeking violations in campaign spending.
Federal prosecutors in Maryland have issued subpoenas also seeking financial disclosures on President Trump’s golf course in Scotland.
Trump’s golf course has been losing money and prosecutors are looking into where the funds came from to inject back into the business.
In addition, Michael Cohen is scheduled to testify in two days. Cohen’s cooperation with federal prosecutors no doubt resulted in the subpoena from the Manhattan federal prosecutor’s office.
