  • House impeachment managers launched their case for removing Donald Trump from office by depicting him as a president who is vindictive, untruthful, unbound by the law and above all, willing to abuse his power at the expense of US national security.

    Trump, who was impeached last month by the Democratic-led House of Representatives on charges of abusing power and obstructing Congress, says he has done nothing wrong and describes his impeachment as a partisan hoax to derail his 2020 re-election. With the television cameras rolling, U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts convened the proceedings.

    The House of Representatives, controlled by the Democratic Party, on Wednesday voted to send articles of impeachment against President Trump to the Senate, in a major development to remove him from office for his alleged abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

    Parnas said he was working as part of Trump’s legal team and that Giuliani would tell Ukrainian officials that Parnas was working on behalf of Trump so the Ukrainians would take him seriously.

    Trump is slated to sign the Phase 1 trade agreement with Chinese Vice Premier Liu He at the White House on Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. (1630 GMT). The signing occurs a week before the U.S. Senate is due to begin its impeachment trial of the U.S. president.

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi was meeting privately Tuesday at the Capitol with House Democrats about next steps, ending her blockade almost a month after they voted to impeach Trump on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

    The Gulf accounts for nearly 70%of India’s energy imports. There were suggestions to form an international maritime force to protect the oil supplies. No agreement has been reached so far. With the two leading US Presidential candidates condemning Trump's move, there is urgent need for de-escalation. India can play a role.

    Under Trump, US unemployment has fallen to 3.5%, the lowest since 1969, and a Chinese slowdown, in conjunction with a strong economy, actually strengthening Trump’s leverage in the ‘trade war’ arena.

    Trump is on the cusp of being impeached by the House, with a historic debate set to begin on charges that he abused his power & obstructed Congress.

    Writing in his 2017 memoir, Biden said Ukraine gave him a chance to fulfill a childhood promise to make a difference in the world. It also came to serve a political purpose, as “a legacy project, something he could run on,” said Keith Darden.

    This week, the House of Representatives begins public hearings that could lead to the impeachment of a president for only the third time in U.S. history. More than a half-dozen Trump administration officials have called the phone conversation with Volodymyr Zelenskiy and the events surrounding it insidious and shocking. Five officials who dealt with Ukraine have resigned since September.

    Many of her own advisers are now pointing a finger directly at Harris. In interviews several of them criticized her for going on the offensive against rivals. Their feelings were reflected days later by Kelly Mehlenbacher, the state operations director, in a blistering resignation letter obtained by The New York Times.
