    Mick Mulvaney told reporters Trump will not profit from hosting next year's G7 at his Doral resort – which is a lie – and then said Trump made a "quid pro quo" offer to Ukraine – which is true. CNN's Stephen Collinson states the obvious: Trump is becoming increasingly brazen and incorrigible and his Presidency is "blazing with abuses of power, conflicts of interest and unhinged behavior."

    Trump's move to host the next G7 at his Doral resort takes self-dealing to new levels
    The corruption is becoming more and more brazen.

    Emperor Trump keeps insisting he did nothing wrong by asking Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky to dig up dirt on Joe Biden and the Democrats. Trump says he just wanted to "root out corruption." Quick, somebody hand Trump a mirror!

    Cooper, the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Russia, Ukraine and Eurasia, has served with the Department of Defense since 2001. She spent many months trying to get Congress to provide $250 million in military aid to Ukraine. Congress had approved the aid in 2018 but it was held up and we now know why. Emperor Trump was using it as a quid pro quo to get dirt on Joe Biden and the Democrats. Cooper will testify next week before House impeachment investigators. She will be the first Pentagon official to do so.

    Republicans, who value their party far above the safety, security and well-being of our nation, have repeatedly insisted there is not enough evidence to call for an impeachment of President Trump. There is certainly enough evidence now – and Emperor Trump's Republican support is slowly starting to erode.

    Former Ohio Governor John Kasich calls for Trump's impeachment
    Kasich said the 'final straw' was acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney's statement that there was a quid pro quo with Ukraine's President.

    Donald Trump says his administration is "the most transparent in the history of the United States." Really? I've lost count of all the White House officials who are refusing to comply with subpoenas.

    Energy Secretary Rick Perry won't comply with subpoena in impeachment probe

    Mick Mulvaney declared yesterday, "There's always going to be political influence in foreign policy. It's not illegal. It's not impeachable." Yes, but Donald Trump's attempt to get dirt on Joe Biden was not part of any foreign policy, nor, if it had been successful, would it have benefitted Ukraine or the United States. It would have benefited only Donald Trump. That is an abuse of power and it is illegal and impeachable. Today we learn Rudy Giuliani's "aiding and abetting" went farther than was initially reported.

    Mick Mulvaney admitted that Trump withheld Congressionally approved military aid to Ukraine in an effort to get dirt on Joe Biden. "Get over it," Mulvaney told reporters. CNN's Don Lemon said tonight, "We can't 'get over it.' It's criminal activity." CNN's Lauren Dezenski concurs. The Ukraine quid pro quo, the abandonment of our Kurdish allies and the hosting of the G-7 summit at a Trump resort are way too much for anyone to "get over."

    What if Republicans can't 'get over it'?
    Acting chief of staff Mulvaney said it after confirming there was a quid pro quo, but it's the administration's answer to any number of issues swirling around.

    A few Congressional Republicans, including Mike Simpson, Francis Rooney and Lisa Murkowski, are finally finding the courage to acknowledge the wrongness of Trump's self-serving actions. Trump's stranglehold on the Republican party is starting to weaken as some of its members are beginning to realize they can no longer "defend the indefensible."

    Growing number of Congressional Republicans struggle to defend Trump over G-7 choice, Ukraine and Syria

    Opinion: Forget Donald Trump, Republicans. Save the GOP for the sake of your party's future.

    Emperor Trump and Mick Mulvaney continue to insist Trump has "done nothing wrong." If that is the case, then why is the White House ordering diplomats and officials to not testify before House impeachment investigators and why are are Rudy Giuliani, Rick Perry, Mike Pence, the Pentagon, the State Department, the Defense Department and the Office of Management & Budget refusing to comply with subpoenas to turn over documents relating to Ukraine? Many diplomats and officials are testifying, though: Fiona Hill, George Kent, Gordon Sondland, Michael McKinley, Marie Yovanovitch and, next week, Laura Cooper and William Taylor Jr. – and the noose is tightening.

    White House stone wall crumbles. Now what?
    Its initial strategy toward the House impeachment investigation was to try to block witnesses from testifying while labeling the probe "illegitimate." Now that’s failed. What’s Plan B?

    Emperor Trump attacks everyone who dares to criticize him, from "Crazy Bernie," "Crooked Hillary" and "Shifty Schiff" to "dishonest" reporters, the "failing" New York Times and "pompous ass" Mitt Romney. Francis Rooney yesterday said he hadn't yet decided if Trump has committed an impeachable offense. "Let's wait for the facts," Rooney said, suggesting he could be open to impeaching Trump. He told Fox News he is not afraid of what Trump might do to him. I don't believe him. Today, saying "I've done what I came to do," Rooney announced he will not seek re-election. I think he's just afraid of retribution from Emperor Trump.

    One day after suggesting he could be open to impeaching Trump, GOP Rep. Francis Rooney announces retirement
