Public support for Trump’s impeachment is higher than it was for Nixon and Clinton

Westlake Legal Group Y58Py8lNi_bZsxC6Ckc_A8_7lmj-T_TNQrcP430Gapc Public support for Trump's impeachment is higher than it was for Nixon and Clinton r/politics

We could be looking at the very beginning of that phenomenon right now.

There’s already a first-hand witness whistleblower to the Ukraine call. I fully predict that this will prompt a mad rush of other whistleblowers trying to save their own asses from what they view as a sinking ship.

In the next few weeks I believe things will pitch dramatically down for Trump, the only difference being he will decline to resign and so we’ll enter entirely new territory.

The pressure on Republican Senators will be extraordinary. The Fox News valves will not be able to hold back the pressure, especially if Trump flails and damages himself as he spirals further and further down.

Republican Senators so desperately don’t want to vote against Trump, but they’re going to be left with little option as his mental state and evidence of his crimes devolves beyond even their ability to excuse.

GOP Rep. Chris Stewart dismisses second whistleblower: ‘Why should I care?’

Westlake Legal Group AP-Chris-Stewart GOP Rep. Chris Stewart dismisses second whistleblower: 'Why should I care?' Ronn Blitzer fox-news/person/donald-trump fox news fnc/politics fnc article 9571cabb-5b99-5cda-9f84-12428ba40a2c

Members of the House Intelligence Committee from both parties reacted to the news that there is a second whistleblower with knowledge pertaining to President Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Reps. Val Demings, D-Fla. and Chris Stewart, R-Utah, both appeared on “Fox News Sunday.” Demings’ initial reaction to the news was to give it credence as she has with the first complaint filed Aug. 12, while Stewart was quick to dismiss the new individual, even with the understanding that they have firsthand knowledge of alleged wrongdoing, unlike the first whistleblower.

ATTORNEYS FOR WHISTLEBLOWER CONFIRM NEW INDIVIDUAL WITH FIRSTHAND KNOWLEDGE OF TRUMP UKRAINE CALL HAS COME FORWARD

“It does not matter,” Stewart said, acknowledging that he was aware of the second whistleblower before news broke Sunday morning. “This person is gonna come forward and say, ‘Yep, the president had this phone call and, yep, that’s the transcript.’ Uh, I mean, why should I care at all what his perspective, or his opinion, uh, judgment of this transcript is? You and I can read it.”

He stated that, according to the memo from the White House containing the contents of the call, Trump did not mention the 2020 election or any quid pro quo. Democrats maintain that Trump used an implied threat of withholding military aid to Ukraine as leverage to have them assist in investigations of Joe Biden and his son Hunter, as well as possible collusion between Ukraine and the Democratic National Committee in the 2016 election.

Stewart said that all Trump was doing was looking to uncover possible corruption, and that he was not using his office for political gain.

Demings, meanwhile, said that the White House document “corroborates everything, all of the information that is in the whistleblower’s report,” and that it could support impeachment.

“I believe if you look at the evidence over the past about ten days or so, right now I think it’s pretty clear that the president tried to coerce a foreign country into investigating a political rival and use much-needed military aid as a condition of a deal,” she said, later stating, “I think the elements are there, I think the evidence that we need are there, and I do believe based on that that we will have to take a serious look at articles of impeachment.”

Stewart said that Democrats are “giddy” over the whistleblower complaint because they have been trying to impeach Trump throughout his presidency.

“These guys are giddy over this. They’re not in pain over this. And it’s not been the last ten days. It’s been three years. Three years they’ve been trying to impeach this president! Three years they’ve been looking for reasons to remove him from office. They’re not pained by this, they’re excited about this.”

Female student fatally ‘trampled’ in stampede at house party, local media reports

A female student has died and two others suffered serious injuries during a house party in Dunedin, New Zealand, on Saturday night, according to New Zealand police.

Police say “it’s too early to speculate” on whether charges will be filed after the University of Otago student was reportedly “trampled” on a stairway following a panicked stampede of people attempting to leave the Dundas St. house, nicknamed The Manor.

A witness told Stuff they were halfway up the stairs when people starting pushing down as a “massive crowd” of people were going up.

“They started to fall backward and when the people at the top started falling it was kind of like dominoes — everyone went down and the people at the bottom of the stairs just ended up in a pile of people,” the witness told the outlet.

“I was trying to hold it up, I could see it getting bad, then I started to get knocked over, got out of the way. I’m a heavy person, if I get anyone underneath me it wouldn’t be good for them.”

The witness said the congestion created a pile of roughly 50 people, with partygoers attempting to pull everyone off the mass of bodies. A student who was at the party told the NZ Herald that people fell down the stairs and landed on the female student who died.

“She may have been trampled,” the student told the Herald.

Otago Coastal Commander Inspector Marty Gray said the female victim was carried out of the house with officers and partygoers who attempted to resuscitate her for “a good five minutes.”

“There were 500-600 partygoers, very anxious, a lot of uncertainty as you’d imagine,” Gray told the outlet.

One student who managed to escape the pileup described the chaos to the Herald.

“I got pushed to the ground with two other girls I remember, and we were looking at each other screaming and crying trying to get up,” she said. “I kept repeating ‘please don’t let me die, I don’t want to die’.

“I don’t know how long I was down there, but it was the most terrifying experience of my life — I thought that was how I was going to die. I just ran out of the building screaming.”

Gray said an ambulance and police were called to the property before midnight after the occupants asked for help in shutting down the party. When they arrived, he says a large number of people were in the process of leaving, with reports of people being injured as they did so.

“If you were at the party and have not spoken to police, we would ask you to please get in touch, to help us piece together what happened,” Gray said.

Miley Cyrus Definitely Has A Thing For Australians, Spotted Kissing Cody Simpson

If eligible Australian bachelors were Infinity Stones, Miley Cyrus is Thanos because she’s collected another suitor from the land Down Under, which we can all agree is a far worthier endeavor than snapping away half of Earth’s population.

After locking down and then divorcing the country’s most coveted export, Liam Hemsworth, (and rebounding with reality TV star Kaitlynn Carter), the singer has seemingly moved on to Australian singer and longtime friend Cody Simpson. 

The star was spotted sharing a kiss and an acai bowl with Simpson earlier this week in Los Angeles and now she’s confirming that he is very much “my type.” 

“22 [check] Australian (my type) [check] Abs [check],” she wrote over a photo of a shirtless Simpson on Instagram Stories Saturday, adding “Hot Girl Fall [check].”

And before you could even pop off a quick Google search to check that, yes, Simpson once dated Gigi Hadid, he uploaded a photo of himself kissing Cyrus and calling her “baby.” 

“Pre swim breakfast courtesy of baby,” he wrote across the sweet social media snap.

After the video of her cozying up to Simpson made the internet rounds, Cyrus addressed critics who predictably accused her of moving on too quickly following back-to-back breakups earlier this summer with Hemsworth and Carter. 

“I know the public feels invested in my past relationship because they felt like they saw it thru from the beginning,” Cyrus wrote on Twitter Friday night. “I think that’s why people have always felt so entitled over my life and how I live it because they’ve watched me grow up.”

“But I am grown now and make choices as an adult knowing the truth/details/reality,” she continued, noting how men in the public eye rarely receive this type of attention about their dating life. 

The “Black Mirror” star added that “this ‘dating’ thing is new to me,” given her relationship with Hemsworth spanned most of her 20s, and said she refuses to stay cooped up at home during this new chapter. 

“I am just trying to THRIVE/survive in a man’s world,” she wrote. “Can a girl not get a fucking açai bowl and a morning make out session in peace?!?!” 

And in case you were wondering how Hemsworth is, well, holding up during all of this, he seems to be doing just fine.

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger fined $5,000 by NFL for wearing Apple Watch, per report

Ben Roethlisberger is out for the rest of the season, but the NFL is still keeping a close eye on the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback.

Despite being on the sideline in street clothes for the Steelers’ win over the Cincinnati Bengals last Monday night following his season-ending elbow surgery, Roethlisberger was fined $5,000 by the league for wearing an Apple Watch, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Wearing a headset and a Steelers T-shirt with his right arm in a sling, Roethlisberger was seen wearing the Apple Watch on his left wrist during the game. ESPN reported that Roethlisberger’s wife dressed him for the game and placed the watch on his wrist.

Roethlisberger, 37, sustained the injury in the Steelers’ loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2. Mason Rudolph has stepped in as the team’s starter at quarterback.

2nd Whistleblower Comes Forward On Trump’s Dealings With Ukraine: Attorneys

A second whistleblower who’s said to have firsthand knowledge of allegations of misconduct involving President Donald Trump and Ukraine has come forward to speak with the intelligence community’s inspector general, two attorneys representing the whistleblowers have said.

Attorney Mark Zaid told ABC News Sunday that this intelligence official, whom his firm is also now representing, is able to speak directly about the details cited in a first whistleblower’s complaint against Trump regarding his July 25 phone call with Ukraine’s president.

Fellow attorney Andrew Bakaj also confirmed the development on Twitter, adding that their D.C. firm represents “multiple whistleblowers” in connection to the complaint against Trump.

Zaid said he does not know if this second individual is the same official reported by The New York Times on Friday, or if it is an additional one. That official was reportedly interviewed by Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson during an investigation into the first whistleblower’s complaint.

An additional account of Trump’s communications with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky could potentially add credibility to that offered by the first whistleblower. The original complaint relies on secondhand knowledge but is supported by a summary of Trump’s call with Zelensky.

Garth Brooks admits things can get ‘intense’ with wife Trisha Yearwood after 14 years of marriage

After nearly 14 years of marriage, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood are more in love than ever.

With that being said, even the longtime loves can get into heated discussions.

Brooks, 57, admitted in a new interview that things can get “intense” between the two.

‘SILICON VALLEY’ STAR THOMAS MIDDLEDITCH: ‘SWINGING SAVED MY MARRIAGE’

“We’re coming up on 14 years of marriage so we’re kind of in that stage where we have discussions that are intense, a little more than usual,” Brooks told Us Weekly.

The singer said it’s their disagreements that help him to understand a different point of view.

“I think how she inspires me is she thinks differently than me. And so it forces you out of just what you think you know, into what don’t you know, and to look over in there,” he told the outlet.

Yearwood chimed in: “I think what he’s saying is that he listens to me and I’m usually right.”

MIRANDA LAMBERT GIVES HUSBAND BRENDAN MCLOUGHLIN SWEET SHOUTOUT: ‘I’M NOT SAD ANYMORE’

Fox News caught up with the powerhouse country couple earlier this year, when Yearwood, 55, revealed her husband’s handyman skills are useful around the home.

“He is a whatever-it-takes-guy,” Yearwood told us about her superstar husband. “He is. I saw him looking up a video on how to repair the sink in the bathroom, and he did it from watching a video.

“If I go, ‘Hey, I need a dress for tonight and I don’t have time to go shopping,’ he could buy the dress and it would be perfect. I’m telling you, he is amazing,” the “Wrong Side of Memphis” singer continued.

GARTH BROOKS, TRISHA YEARWOOD: THERE’S ‘NOTHING MORE REWARDING’ THAN ‘GETTING YOUR HANDS DIRTY’

Brooks couldn’t help but sing his wife’s praises and offered up his own anecdote about Yearwood’s willingness to get her hands dirty around the house.

“That’s very sweet. I can one-up her,” Brooks began. “I needed some help stringing fence once, and she put some Carhartts on and we went out and strung fence, and I’ve been in love ever since.”

Yearwood married the “More Than a Memory” crooner in 2005 after two previous marriages and is the stepmother to Brooks’ three daughters from his previous marriage to Sandy Mahl.
