GOP On Trump's Ask For Longer Trial: Erm, No

The ever-confident President Donald Trump has been advising the GOP on how they should better handle his impeachment.

However, Trump threw a monkey wrench into the machinations by suggesting he'd welcome a longer trial with lots of witnesses. On Wednesday, Republicans empathized with the president’s call for new testimony. But they also said that they will tune out any outside noise if they can, and potentially wrap up the trial far more quickly than Trump desires. Apparently, that includes the running commentary from a president who demands party loyalty.

Tulsi Gabbard Is Suing Hillary Clinton for Defamation The Hawaii congresswoman's lawsuit claims she has suffered damages estimated in excess of $50 million. The suit alleges former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lied about Gabbard's ties to Russia during a 2019 podcast interview. Clinton said she felt one female candidate was being "groomed" to be a third-party candidate. Clinton would go on to label this person as a "favorite" of the Russians. When later asked if Clinton was referring to Gabbard, Clinton's spokesman, Nick Merrill, replied, "If the nesting doll fits." While it's unclear if the lawsuit stands a chance of succeeding, the news puts Gabbard back into the headlines. The Democratic presidential candidate will likely need as much publicity as possible ahead of the Iowa caucuses in February.
