The hellova week

Good Morning. There's been some interesting breaking news this morning.

I certainly hope this was said upon consultation from Speaker Pelosi.
House Armed Services Chairman Adam Smith (D-Wash.), a top lieutenant of Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), said Thursday that she should go ahead and transmit the articles of impeachment against President Trump to the Senate and allow a trial to begin.

Smith’s high-profile break with Pelosi came as she prepared to hold a morning news conference where she is certain to field questions about her ongoing impasse with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). Pelosi has said she first wants McConnell to unveil the rules of a trial regarding Trump’s conduct toward Ukraine.

The crux of the Democrats’ case is the allegation that Trump tried to leverage a White House meeting and military aid, sought by Ukraine to combat Russian military aggression, to pressure Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to launch an investigation of former vice president Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden, as well as a probe of an unfounded theory that Kyiv conspired with Democrats to interfere in the 2016 presidential election.
I was hoping the Dems would wait until after the State of the Union address. That said it appears that MoscowMitch isn't budging at all. Speaking of MoscowMitch, the Vice President has indicated that he wants the Trade bill to be passed in the senate.
Vice President Pence urged the Senate on Thursday to move forward with passage of a new trade deal with Canada and Mexico while it awaits the articles of impeachment from the House. (snip)

McConnell has previously said passage of the trade deal, a major priority for Trump, would have to wait for a Senate trial.

Today might be interesting, it appears Pence was given marching orders from the petulant diktator wanna be. Looks like he wants something, anything, to distract from the distraction that he invoked to distract from the fact that he is, in fact, STILL impeached.

Happy Thursday everyone -- let's begin to wind down this hellova week.
