Trump's Iran Address \ Congress Briefed on Iran \ Waiting on Pelosi \ And Pelosi Says...

The Daily Recount

The classic Trump adage is back: When in doubt, blame Obama. The president briefed the country on Iran today, while his top advisers briefed members of Congress — leaving one staunch Republican thoroughly unimpressed. Meanwhile, the Senate wants a trial ASAP, and Pelosi’s fed up with all the crap.

Impeachment Witness Battle \ Dems' Fundraising Fight \ Saudi Scapegoats \ Saudi Arabia's New Friends

The Daily Recount

The impeachment of Donald Trump started with a phone call. Now, as Senate gears up for a trial, Dems are hoping it ends with an email (and the man who sent it). President Obama lends a hand to Elizabeth Warren as the Dem candidates continue to pile on Pete Buttigieg. And a Saudi court has sentenced five people (read: scapegoats) to death in the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Public Impeachment Week 2 \ Trump's Hospital Visit \ Obama’s 2020 Warning \ Biden on Marijuana

The Daily Recount

NINE witnesses are testifying publicly this week. Yes, you read that right: N-I-N-E, including three White House staffers who were on that July 25th call with Ukraine. It might be time for Trump to cut back on his McDonald's visits after a last-minute, non-routine doctor's visit this weekend. Plus, Obama sends a pointed warning to 2020 Dems about being #TooFarLeft.
