Nancy Pelosi On Impeachment: ‘All Roads Seem To Lead To Putin’
The House speaker linked Russian President Vladimir Putin with President Donald Trump during a news conference.
When asked why she wouldn’t “call the [Trump] administration’s bluff” by holding the vote, Pelosi replied: “We’re not here to call bluffs.”
“We’re here to find the truth to uphold the constitution of the United States,” she added. “This is not a game for us. This is deadly serious.”HUFF POST
Trump Is Going Ballistic Because the Walls Are Closing In
From the day Donald Trump assumed the presidency, it’s been clear that he planned to burn it down. Not the office itself, but the system on which it is built: the credibility of the electoral system by which that formidable power is attained. The norms, customs, and processes that constrain it. And, perhaps most importantly, the idea that the people who bestow that power are entitled to know how it is being used.
The impeachment fight goes to the heart of this last point—the same point that’s also the core of what we are about as journalists, and what you are about as people engaged with our democracy. So we wanted to take a step back and look at the big picture of what this scandal means, and how we at Mother Jonesshould think about our work in this context.https://www.motherjones.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/20191011_trump-red_2000c-1.jpgMOTHER JONES

Grieving Parents ‘Ambushed’ by Trump, Who Had Teen’s Killer Waiting at White House
The president had hoped to surprise the parents of dead British teen Harry Dunn with a meeting with the woman who killed him—all in front of the media.
You can almost imagine the reality-show excitement that surely went into the ill-considered plan to introduce Anne Sacoolas, the American diplomatic wife who killed 19-year-old motorcyclist Harry Dunn when she drove down the wrong side of an English lane in August, to Dunn’s grieving parents. Sacoolas left the U.K. in early September under diplomatic-immunity protections and has not been seen in public since.https://www.thedailybeast.com/anne-sacoolas-grieving-parents-ambushed-by-trump-who-was-hiding-spy-wife-at-the-white-houseDAILY BEAST
