    Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire testified before the House Intelligence Committee on Thursday morning. He answered questions to the best of his ability over the whistleblower report on the phone call between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The House committee released the whistleblower's unclassified report this morning.

    When the 115th session of the US Congress finishes, I would be hard-pressed to pick the most insane stunt organized by our illustrious representatives. I'm tempted to pick Impeachment Theater as the most senseless move. But I pick the decision to put a teenaged foreigner before Congress as an expert on climate science, setting policy that would dramatically impact our economy and national safety.

    The House Judiciary Committee Democrats voted this morning on "the ground rules for a formal committee inquiry" to impeach President Donald Trump. While it does not mean an inquiry has officially started, it means the Democrats have finally defined the inquiry. Chairman Jerry Nadler has not given up on this subject despite pushback from Democrats in the House from moderate districts.

    House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) confirmed the committee has launched "formal impeachment proceedings" against President Donald Trump even without Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's blessing. From Fox News:
    “This is formal impeachment proceedings,” Nadler said. “We are investigating all the evidence, we’re gathering the evidence and we will at the conclusion of this, hopefully by the end of the year, vote to, vote articles of impeachment to the House floor or we won’t. That’s a decision that we’ll have to make. But that -- that’s exactly the process we’re in right now.”

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) was plucked from bartending obscurity and launched into the House of Representatives by the Justice Democrats. One of the group's co-founders, Saikat Chakrabart, became her handler chief of staff . . . and proceeded to toss one fire bomb after another among his charge's new colleagues on the hill.  And now he's out as of Friday.

    Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee announced on Friday they will begin a formal "impeachment investigation" against President Donald Trump due to former Special Counsel Robert Mueller's testimony. Chairman Jerry Nadler said the Democrats will ask for grand jury information related to Mueller's investigation. From Fox News:
    Nadler called the grand jury materials “critically important” for their investigation. In the petition, Democrats on the committee noted that because Justice Department policies do not allow the prosecution of a sitting president, the House of Representatives is “the only institution of the federal government” that can hold Trump accountable.

    Former Texas state senator Wendy Davis has continued her campaign to remain relevant. She announced on Monday her candidacy for the U.S. House of Representatives and challenge Republican Rep. Chip Roy. Davis shot into the national limelight a few years ago when she filibustered for 13 hours against a pro-life measure in the Texas senate. She tried to capitalize on this fame in a run for Texas governor but ultimately failed.
