DURBIN: “High drama in the cabinet room. We were all invited, dem leaders, for the follow-up meeting on infrastructure, everyone showed up, sat in their chairs, the President walked in the room and announced he was not going to go forward with the meeting, he was cancelling it.”

DURBIN continues about the WH mtg on infrastructure: “(Trump) objected to the continued investigation of obstruction of justice, he said he cooperated and gave his side of the story, as we’ve heard before.” “I don’t know where this leaves us as a nation,” Durbin said.

Durbin says the entire meeting lasted “no more than 5 minutes.”

After he left Pelosi said a few words of the importance of the meeting and doing infrastructure, he says.

Reporter: Kellyanne Conway made a remark at the end of the meeting. She's apparently expanded on her remarks —

Pelosi: I'm not going to talk about her ✋

Political leaders don't have time or the desire to answer every naysayer in the media because they're too busy.

However, most naysayers in the media aren't worth bothering with anyway.

Remarkable what Trump has given Pelosi at a delicate political time for her. As she’s trying to show impatient Dems that her more methodical approach is working, he basically offers them proof that he’s unnerved. One Hill aide told me it was a gift

What gets me is news breaks that this woman is weighing committing a crime before Congress &it’s getting framed by the NYT as some Lifetime drama called “Hope’s Choice.”

 

This is a fmr admin official considering participating in a coverup led by the President. Treat her equally.

==================================

"Ocasio-Cortez's criticism added to that of media figures who said failing to comply with a subpoena is a crime

and not something "to decide."

Hope Hicks made her decision when she went to work for trump.

 The veteran prosecutor sees that the evidence is all there.

The evidence might be there but there is no way 2\3 of the Senate is going to vote to convict.   Therefore impeachment is just a waste of time and a  failed impeachment attempt likely helps Trump's re-election bid.

So in other words, they should go for it. At this point, the Dems deserve to have it explode in their faces.

Looks like a typical Dem.     Just BS paranoia.    We're not doomed just because Trump is President.

Trump can be defeated if the Dems wake-up.

Yesterday, the Illinois Senate approved a sweeping abortion rights bill

that establishes a “fundamental right” for women to get an abortion in the state,

sending the plan to Gov. J.B. Pritzker

A woman’s medical decisions should be between her and her medical team, NOT dictated by politicians.

I’m proud Illinois voted to #PassTheRHA to protect women’s health care,

even when attacks on it are happening nationwide. 💪🚺#StoptheBans #RHAinIL
