Both sides of the aisle call for fair, dignified Senate impeachment trial: ‘It’s a process of democracy’

With President Trump‘s impeachment trial looming in the Senate, lawmakers and politicians on both sides of the aisle are calling for managers to follow the Constitution and keep to a fair and balanced approach.

Appearing on “Cavuto LIVE,” Arkansas Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson said he believes the trial under Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., will be very similar to the one held for the Bill Clinton impeachment.

NEWT GINGRICH: TRUMP IMPEACHMENT WILL BRING PELOSI AND HOUSE DEMOCRATS CONDEMNATION BY HISTORY

“The fallout in terms of our constitutional process is that we have to recognize this is a trial. It’s not going to be the circus atmosphere it was in the House. It will be a lot more dignified and orderly because you have the chief justice presiding over it,” the former Clinton impeachment manager said.

Hutchinson said that because the process will be more dignified, the American public will give the procedings in the Senate more credibility.

He told host Neil Cavuto that the Senate has set a “high bar” for impeachment, but there is a lot which has yet to unfold.

“And,what we learned from history is that our democracy is strong and our constitutional process works when you follow it closely,” he said.

Appearing on the show immediately following Hutchinson, 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Michael Bennet told Cavuto that he believes the Senate has a “constitutional duty to fulfill.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of Calif., fourth from left, speaks during a news conference to announce impeachment managers on Capitol Hill in Washington, Wednesday, Jan. 15, 2020. The U.S. House is set to vote Wednesday to send the articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump to the Senate for a landmark trial on whether the charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress are grounds for removal. With Pelosi, from left, are Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y., Rep. Sylvia Garcia, D-Texas, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., Rep. Val Demings, D-Fla., Rep. Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., and Rep. Jason Crow, D-Colo. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh)

The Colorado Democrat noted that while he thinks that “anybody could accuse anyone else of having an inherent bias,” it’s imperative that the Senate call witnesses and examine records.

“That’s the best way we can assure that the American people can get to the bottom of the truth,” he said.

Later on, Lousiana Republican Sen. Bill Cassidy urged the Senate to “keep a high threshold” in managing the impeachment trial and warned of those who will “[try] to distract from what is the crux of the issue.”

“Now, there’s going to be a lot of — you know — I call it monkey dust. People throwing dust around, trying to distract from what is the crux of the issue. If we look at the crux and remain focused on that crux, then we’ll establish whether or not the president did something illegal or not,” Cassidy said.

The trial will begin in earnest on Tuesday on two articles of impeachment against Trump: abuse of power; and obstruction of Congress. House impeachment managers, who will prosecute the case against Trump, were practicing their arguments this weekend. Lawyers for both sides were filing initial briefings and pleadings in the case on Saturday.

“President Trump has done nothing wrong and is confident that this team will defend him, the voters, and our democracy from this baseless, illegitimate impeachment,” White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a statement. “The Articles of Impeachment House Democrats have adopted threaten grave and lasting damage to our institutions and to our Nation. The President looks forward to the end of this partisan and unconstitutional impeachment.”

The president’s legal team is set to submit his reply to the articles of impeachment later today.

Dean Cain rips ‘insane’ outrage over Vince Vaughn-Trump handshake

Actor Dean Cain told “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Tuesday that the online outrage over Vince Vaughn greeting President Trump during Monday’s College Football Playoff championship game in New Orleans is “insane.”

Trump, seated in a box with LSU fan Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., and others, was seen on video exchanging pleasantries and a handshake with the “Dodgeball” actor. The video went viral overnight and Vaughn was slammed by some on the left who found engaging with Trump to be unforgivable. Vaughn has previously described himself as generally Libertarian.

VINCE VAUGHN FACES LIBERAL OUTRAGE AFTER HE WAS SEEN WITH TRUMP AT LSU-CLEMSON CHAMPIONSHIP GAME

Host Tucker Carlson asked Cain if Vaughn should be worried about losing work or being blacklisted in liberal Hollywood, to which Cain responded that Vaughn should not be since he’s become “Teflon” through his filmography and achievements.

“He’s untouchable,” the former “Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman” star said. “He won’t be facing any real backlash.”

However, Cain called the outrage “as crazy as [the blowback over] Ellen [DeGeneres] sitting with George W. Bush.”

He added that Americans should revert to previous customs, where people who disagree are allowed to be seen together and allowed to be social with each other.

“We need to be talking to each other,” he said, recalling that Hollywood personalities of all persuasions would unite to crack jokes about each other at the “celebrity roasts” hosted by the late Dean Martin.

Cain also reacted to outrage directed at regular Trump critic and liberal author Stephen King, who said on Twitter that Oscar nominations should be based on artistic talent and not “diversity.”

Carlson agreed that King is a “serious lefty” but was attacked by his own political side because he made a single comment they disagreed with.

“It’s terrifying,” said Cain. “If you are not woke enough, you are out.”

President Trump and first lady Melania Trump received a warm reception at Monday night’s national championship football game between Louisiana State University (LSU) and Clemson University.

The Trumps walked onto the field before the championship match at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans as their images appeared on the big boards in the arena before the National Anthem, causing the attendees to go wild.

Loud chants of “U-S-A” were heard throughout the stadium.

Storms in South blamed for 7 deaths, including 3 in Alabama from tornado

Powerful storms in parts of the South were being blamed for seven deaths, according to reports Saturday.

Alabama officials reported that three people were killed in a tornado in Pickens County.

Earlier Saturday, firefighters in Bossier Parish, La., sifted through a trailer demolished by strong winds and found the bodies of an elderly couple.

The winds were so potent that the home moved 200 feet from its foundation, officials said.

A third person was reported killed in Louisiana. In Caddo Parish, Raymond Holden, 75, was sleeping when a tree fell on his home, crushing him.

“Our prayers are with their families and everyone in harm’s way,” Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards tweeted after the deaths were reported.

“Please stay safe and monitor local media as this severe weather will continue to impact Louisiana for several hours,” he added.

In Mississippi, straight-line wind reportedly knocked at least 30 train cars off the tracks in Tallahatchie County.

An male employee inside a packed New Orleans Walmart was shot dead Monday night, prompting a major police presence, a report said.

Although details were sketchy, police did say an arrest was made after the victim was shot in the chest in a store aisle in Gentilly, NOLA.com reported. No identities have been released.

Police Chief Shaun Ferguson said the investigation is in its early stages.

“This is a very brazen incident in which an individual walked into a business this time of the evening with hundreds of customers inside of this business armed with a weapon and willing to cause someone harm,” Ferguson said, NOLA.com reported.

 Another witness, identified as Constance Horn, said she was leaving the store with groceries when she heard six shots fired.

Kyle Rudolph’s game-winning touchdown catch called into question as Vikings advance in playoffs

Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph caught the game-winning touchdown pass from Kirk Cousins in overtime against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday during their playoff game, but there was some controversy over the clutch play.

The touchdown pushed the Vikings to the NFC Divisional round and bounced the Saints from the playoffs.

Before Rudolph caught the pass in the corner of the end zone, it appeared he had his arm extended fully toward cornerback P.J. Williams who was defending him.

MINNESOTA VIKINGS BOUNCE NEW ORLEANS SAINTS FROM PLAYOFFS IN DRAMATIC OVERTIME WIN

It also appeared that officials reviewed only whether Rudolph made the catch — not whether any offensive pass interference took place.

NFL pundits, former players and fans alike debated whether the Saints were jobbed in the playoffs for the second straight season.

SAINTS FANS QUESTION DALVIN COOK’S TOUCHDOWN RUN TO INCREASE VIKINGS’ LEAD IN PLAYOFF GAME

Earlier in the game, Saints fans were heated over a Dalvin Cook rushing touchdown. Officials called Cook’s run a touchdown although it appeared that linebacker Demario Davis stopped him short of the goal line. Officials ruled the ball had crossed the plane and awarded Minnesota a touchdown.

Jaded Saints fans compared both plays to the controversial NFC Championship call last year when Los Angeles Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman clearly interfered with wide receiver Tommylee Lewis on a play. Officials threw no flags and the Saints eventually lost the game in overtime.

Minnesota is set to appear in the divisional round of the playoffs for the first time since the 2017 season.

Minnesota Vikings bounce New Orleans Saints from playoffs in dramatic overtime win

The Minnesota Vikings defeated the New Orleans Saints 26-20 in overtime to advance to the next round of the NFC Playoffs.

The Vikings were set up at the Saints’ 2-yard line after a 43-yard pass from Kirk Cousins to Adam Thielen.

Cousins then threw a touchdown pass to Kyle Rudolph for the win.

Minnesota advanced to the divisional round of the playoffs for the first time since the 2017 season. That season, the Vikings lost in the conference title game to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Cousins finished the game 19-for-31 with 242 passing yards and the game-winning touchdown passes to Rudolph. Running back Dalvin Cook had 28 carries for 94 yards and two touchdowns.

Minnesota had a 10-point lead heading into the fourth quarter but the Saints battled back with a Taysom Hill touchdown catch from Drew Brees with 10:31 remaining in the fourth.

Saints fans question Dalvin Cook’s touchdown run to increase Vikings’ lead in playoff game

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook gave his team a 10-point lead when he scored from the goal line against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday in their wild-card playoff game.

While Cook’s short run was ruled a touchdown, Saints linebacker Demario Davis had met him immediately at the goal line. Cook appeared to jolt backward as he was carrying the football across the plane.

Officials ruled that Cook did, in fact, score a touchdown.

However, the play was not lost on Saints fans who said they may have gotten jobbed for the second straight year.

Saints fans expressed their frustrations over the play on social media.

Gather Tannehill died from burns sustained in the fire while his wife died from smoke inhalation, officials said.

It wasn’t immediately clear where in Louisiana the couple, believed to be between 65 and 70 years old, was from but their boat was registered in New Orleans.

A friend of the Tannehills, who appeared to have been nearby when the fire broke out, took to Facebook on Wednesday to confirm the couple’s death.

“So sad, so sad that my heart hurts,” the post read. “Two neighbors and I tried to extinguish with 3 neighboring whimsy boat water hoses until the firemen arrived and quickly extinguish the cockpit and down below ball of fire.”

He continued: “They returned to P.R. the day before this past Xmas after sailing a year in the Caribbean and they told us that they came back to make Puerto Rico their home for good.”
