Good Tuesday morning.
Here is what’s on the president’s agenda today:
- The president participates in a video teleconference with members of the military
The House is prepared to impeach Trump…again
House Counsel Douglas Letter said in a filing in federal court that a second impeachment could be necessary if the House uncovers new evidence that Trump attempted to obstruct investigations of his conduct. Letter made the argument as part of an inquiry by the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals into whether Democrats still need testimony from former White House counsel Don McGahn after the votes last week to charge Trump with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
The filing relates to a court case involving Don McGahn. The House Democrats are claiming that even though they have already impeached the president, or rather voted to impeach the president, that does “not render moot the legal fight over McGahn.” And whatever they find on that fishing expedition, and they will find something, they will impeach again.
The Trump DoJ argued that there is no urgency to the McGahn case because the House has already impeached.
Democrat House lawyers have said they will continue their investigation into President Trump even after the House already voted to impeach the president.
