Today, House Democrats' sham impeachment ended with the full vindication and exoneration of President Trump by the Senate.
 Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham issued the following statement in part:
 The Senate voted to reject the baseless articles of impeachment, and only the President's political opponents—all Democrats, and one failed Republican presidential candidate—voted for the manufactured impeachment articles.

Today, House Democrats’ sham impeachment ended with the full vindication and exoneration of President Trump by the Senate.
Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham issued the following statement in part:
The Senate voted to reject the baseless articles of impeachment, and only the President’s political opponents—all Democrats, and one failed Republican presidential candidate—voted for the manufactured impeachment articles.

In what has now become a consistent tradition for Democrats, this was yet another witch-hunt that deprived the President of his due process rights and was based on a series of lies . . . Throughout this wholly corrupt process, President Trump successfully advanced the interests of the United States and remained focused on the issues that matter to Americans. He spent his time achieving real victories for the people of this country, and the Democrats—once again—have nothing to show for their fraudulent schemes.


President Trump’s State of the Union address made his priorities clear: It’s time to put the partisanship in Congress behind us. One of the most important lines from his speech last night reminds our leaders who they’re here to serve. It’s not their donors, it’s not each other, and it’s not the sensationalist corporate media.
“Members of Congress: We must never forget that the only victories that matter in Washington are victories that deliver for the American people.”
Read Press Secretary Grisham’s full statement.

WATCH: ‘The best is yet to come’
Last night’s State of the Union address was unforgettable, as President Trump told the Great American Comeback Story that’s unfolding across our country.  
“Jobs are booming, incomes are soaring, poverty is plummeting, crime is falling, confidence is surging, and our country is thriving and highly respected again,” the President said. “America’s enemies are on the run, America’s fortunes are on the rise, and America’s future is blazing bright.”
On the issues that matter most to working families, from fixing our broken trade deals to rebuilding our great military, President Trump has kept his promises.
Some of the best examples of those results came from the special guests who joined the President and First Lady last night. Here are just a few of their stories:
 Charles McGee, 100 years old and one of the last surviving Tuskegee Airmen, served our country in three wars: World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. “General McGee, our Nation salutes you,” the President said.
 Amy Williams is a military mother who works full-time while raising two young children. She still finds time to devote countless hours to helping other military families. Last night, President Trump had a surprise: “I am thrilled to inform you that your husband is back from deployment. He is here with us tonight.”
 Tony Rankins is an Army veteran—and a prime example of how the President’s economic policies have life-changing results. Take Opportunity Zones, part of the 2017 tax cuts law: Tony climbed back from homelessness and found a job with a construction company that invests in these distressed communities. “He is now a top tradesman, drug-free, reunited with his family,” President Trump said.
 Carl and Marsha Mueller. Last year, U.S. Special Forces took out the world’s top terrorist, ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. The Muellers tragically lost their daughter Kayla at the hands of this vicious killer. In her honor, the U.S. mission was named Task Force 8-14, a reference to Kayla’s August 14th birthday. In the President’s words: “America’s warriors never forgot Kayla—and neither will we.”
 See the rest of these incredible stories.

White House Press Release 10/09/2019
Why Can’t Dems Treat Trump as Fairly as Republicans Did Bill Clinton?
The White House informed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi yesterday that “the Executive Branch won’t play along with the lawless ‘inquiry’ that House Democrats have been engaged in,” the New York Post editorial board writes.

“White House counsel Pat Cipollone’s letter to Pelosi spells out the problems. While the Constitution clearly gives the House the power to begin impeachment proceedings, it does not give the speaker the privilege of declaring them all by herself.”

Precedent is on President Trump’s side here, the Post writes. Unlike impeachment inquiries against Presidents Bill Clinton and Richard Nixon, Speaker Pelosi never called a floor vote to open proceedings. Instead, House Democrats are deposing witnesses behind closed doors, denying Republican colleagues fair time to ask questions, and “leaking negative info and withholding favorable facts — feeding fanatically anti-Trump media to repeat slanted interpretations as fact.”

The letter: Read the White House’s full response to Democrat leaders.Once again, the media got a key detail wrong about the “whistleblower” attack against President Trump. “The whistleblower’s possible bias was not that he was simply a registered Democrat. It was that he had a significant tie to one of the Democratic presidential candidates currently vying to challenge President Trump in next year’s election,” Byron York writes in the Washington Examiner.“First lady Melania Trump announced on Tuesday afternoon that she had—ceremonial shovel in hand—marked the start of construction for a new White House tennis pavilion on the South Lawn,” Kate Bennett reports for CNN.”President Trump awarded the Medal of Freedom Tuesday to Edwin Meese III, calling the former attorney general ‘a titan’ and ‘a star,'” Marisa Schultz reports for the New York Post. Meese served as U.S. Attorney General under President Ronald Reagan.

Adam Schiff and Democrats are Twisting Words to Smear Trump
“We were promised a Hollywood-style, smoking gun quid pro quo. But after the transcript was released, the whistleblower complaint came out, and the House Intelligence Committee grilled acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire, leaving most people with glazed-over expressions, wondering what the big deal is,” Jenna Ellis Rives writes in the Washington Examiner.

Yesterday, “Chairman Adam Schiff attempted to play word games with Maguire in an effort to manipulate the situation and paint the intelligence community and the White House as covering up something really, really bad that President Trump must have done.”

“So why the manipulation? Because the Democrats know their case is weak. Their only hope lies in trying to twist legal terminology for their political advantage.”

Click here to read more.“The formal complaint from an anti-Trump ‘whistleblower’ alleging various crimes by President Donald Trump is riddled with third-hand gossip and outright falsehoods,” Sean Davis writes in The Federalist. “Rather than provide direct evidence that was witnessed or obtained firsthand by the complainant, the document instead combines gossip from various anonymous individuals, public media reports, and blatant misstatements of fact and law in service of a narrative that is directly contradicted by underlying facts. A footnote in the document even boasts about its use of ‘ample open-source information.'””House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) performed an entirely made-up conversation between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky during his opening statement at a committee hearing Thursday morning,” Kristina Wong reports for Breitbart News. “The White House released a transcript of a phone call between Trump and Zelensky on Wednesday, but Schiff made up and fabricated his own transcript that he read at the hearing, which sought to create the quid pro quo that Democrats have accused the president of making.”Rather than getting entangled in an impeachment battle, Congress should move to approve a new trade pact with Mexico and Canada, the USMCA, The Detroit News editorial board writes. “The window appears to be narrowing for getting anything productive done in Washington, but this is one piece of business that is essential to maintaining America’s decade-long prosperity streak. It should get top priority.””Palestinians are among the largest recipients of donor assistance per capita in the world today. Yet despite decades of work, billions of dollars, euros, shekels, and dinars donated, life continues to get worse,” U.S. Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt writes in Fox News. “Hamas has driven Gaza to a state of utter desperation. With unemployment at nearly 50 percent (the highest in the world), Hamas’ decade-long experiment in governance is an utter failure.” Greenblatt adds that “donor countries must ask themselves why they should keep struggling to raise money when everyone can plainly see the Hamas regime and the Palestinian Authority are squandering the opportunities that donor money provides for a better future for all Palestinians.”

Senator Lindsey Graham Writes…

Dear Charles,

Given the considerable constitutional weight of impeachment, I wanted you to hear directly from me about where I stand.

I am afraid that the Democrats have lost their minds when it comes to President Trump.

The transcript released today of a phone call between President Trump and President Zelensky of Ukraine was a nothing burger, and to impeach any president over a phone call like this would be insane.

Contrary to what the Democrats had previously claimed, there is not one scintilla of evidence that President Trump threatened to withhold money from Ukraine because he wanted President Zelensky to do his political bidding.

So, I say to my friends on the other side of the aisle: if you believe the telephone transcript is a ‘smoking gun’ for impeachment, then the House of Representatives should take a formal vote to open an impeachment inquiry. Instead of making them guess, the American people should be able to see exactly where their Member of Congress stands on this important matter!

If you, like me, think this episode is yet another of example of the radical left putting their hatred for President Trump before the well-being of our nation, you are not alone.


Lindsey Graham
United States Senator

Publisher’s note:

I for one second that emotion. It was clearly a “nothing burger” but this evening Democrats are beside themselves swearing justice will be served. All the while saying no one is above the law, they wish for American’s to overlook Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden for having committed possible crimes against the United States because Joe Biden is a candidate for President. I don’t buy that at all. Not for one second.

Every U.S. citizen from Joe Blow of Cocomo, to Joe Biden, to the sitting President is obligated to know and uphold the law. That includes reporting breaches of the law to the proper authorities and should especially apply to the office of the President. Nobody will be excused along party lines no matter who they are.

To my mind this sudden but hardly unexpected case of Congressional insanity calls for even closer bipartisan scrutiny of the actions of Joe and Hunter Biden by the office of the U.S. Inspector General, and the Department of Justice. Scrutiny that Democrats in Congress are wilfully ignoring at best and attempting to cover-up at worst.

How to waste a year of America’s time
Americans “want a Congress that delivers results for the people, opening up opportunity and lifting up their lives. When our new members take the oath, our Congress will be refreshed, and our democracy will be strengthened by the optimism, idealism and patriotism of this transformative freshman class.” 
That was newly elected House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on January 3, during the opening session of the 116th Congress. Whether she meant those words at the time is now irrelevant, as the actions of her party this year have betrayed any such vision of a real legislative agenda for working Americans. 
Yesterday, Congressional Democrats gave yet another snapshot of how they spend their days now. After months of pressure, Speaker Pelosi caved to the far-left base (sorry, “transformative freshman class”) that she has been unable to appease, announcing that she is launching official impeachment inquiries into President Trump. Although Democrats have been hinting at impeachment as a political weapon for two years, the latest excuse they give comes as a response to hyped-up reports of a supposed “quid pro quo” offered to President Zelensky of Ukraine. 
Slight problem: It turns out the story was completely false. The transcript released by the White House today proves that Democrats simply made up their claims of a “quid pro quo” between President Trump and President Zelensky.
Here we go again.
Democrats in Congress devote all their time and energy to rumors and innuendo rather than governing. It doesn’t matter if none of it turns out to be true—by then, their media surrogates have spread the lie far and wide. In the process, Speaker Pelosi’s ranks have squandered nearly a year’s worth of time on a single failed agenda item: endless investigations and obstruction. Yesterday’s antics explain why Americans are fed up with Washington and why Congress’ approval numbers sit at an abysmal 18 percent.
Imagine all that could have been accomplished had Democrats devoted this year to issues that actually matter to middle-class Americans, White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a statement:
  Americans deserve elected officials who focus on key issues to improve the lives of families, strengthen our communities, grow our economy, and keep our country safe. In President Donald J. Trump they have someone who has not only focused on those goals, but delivered results.  
In a far departure from all of the work and results of this President, House Democrats have destroyed any chances of legislative progress for the people of this country by continuing to focus all their energy on partisan political attacks. Their attacks on the President and his agenda are not only partisan and pathetic, they are in dereliction of their Constitutional duty.  
The Trump Administration will continue to be vigorous in laying out the facts and standing up for the many forgotten men and women who elected him.

The window for Democrats to do anything of substance this year is closing fast. When Nancy Pelosi spoke about a “new dawn” while accepting the gavel as Speaker earlier this year, she gave the impression that Congress would finally function differently under her watch.
It doesn’t. And no one’s holding their breath that her party will start putting the American people before their political ambitions.

NEW: President Trump secures trade agreement with Japan

While Democrats work overtime on obstruction, President Trump is delivering results for workers across the country. In New York today, the President signed a document with Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe that outlines major steps toward a new trade deal between our countries.
“Under the market access agreement that we’re announcing today, Japan will open new markets to approximately $7 billion in American agricultural products. Japanese tariffs will now be significantly lower, or eliminated entirely, for U.S. beef, pork, wheat, cheese, corn, wine, and so much more,” President Trump explained. “This is a huge victory for America’s farmers, ranchers, and growers. And that’s very important to me.”
The second part of the deal secures robust commitments on $40 billion worth of digital trade for both our economies, expanding commerce for cutting-edge products and services.  
This is what working hard for the American people looks like.
