Gary Peters, was critical of the moves, saying that “Congress must address the challenges at the Southern border without jeopardizing security at the Northern border or any of DHS’ other critical national security missions.” “Transferring resources and personnel from other vital agencies like TSA or FEMA are short-sighted, temporary fixes that could have …

Trump allies mobilize against congressman’s impeachment revolt

(CNN)Republicans are moving fast to squelch Justin Amash’s rebellion against Donald Trump before his conclusion that the President “engaged in impeachable conduct” — the first by a GOP lawmaker — can gather momentum. The early signs are that Amash’s protest will not materially shift political dynamics in Washington that mean any attempt to impeach Trump remains a long-shot scenario.

(CNN)On Monday, President Donald Trump launched a long-shot effort to prevent the public from hearing live testimony from former White House Counsel Don McGahn — the man who, perhaps more than any other, can bring to life Trump’s most flagrant alleged acts of obstruction of justice.

Justin Amash’s impeachment call puts the Constitution ahead of Trump

(CNN)Finally, a deeply conservative member of Congress, Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan, has put the US Constitution before partisan loyalty to President Donald Trump. The question is — will this inspire other Republicans to do the same, or will they continue to defend Trump against any claims of wrongdoing arising from Robert Mueller’s investigation?

You don’t need to have a Ph.D. in political science to understand that if elected officials blindly defend the actions of a president simply because they are in the same political party, it’s a prescription for disaster …
