Politico: Trump officials prepared to stonewall Democratic oversight demands

Trump doesn’t plan to negotiate with Congress over investigations the way his predecessors did.

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler wrote to the White House last month demanding information about President Donald Trump’s declaration of a national emergency to fund the construction of a southern border wall.

Yet Nadler’s Feb. 22 deadline came and went with no response. Not only did the Democratic congressman not receive the documents he wanted, he didn’t even receive a customary letter back from the White House acknowledging his request.

It was just one example of the Trump White House’s unusually hostile — or in this case, non-existent — response to congressional investigators.

In their early response to an onslaught of Democratic requests, Trump officials are breaking from norms set by previous administrations of both parties, according to people who worked in the White House or Capitol Hill during the presidencies of Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

CNN: A political upside to impeachment for Trump? Some Trump advisers think so

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump and his allies weren't shy about using the specter of impeachment during the 2018 midterm campaign to rally the President's core supporters to the polls.

And for their 2020 campaign, they were prepared to use the real thing. With House Democrats newly in the majority and the prospects of impeachment surging, Trump and his political allies -- while certainly not hankering for it -- have eyed the potential political upside: using a Democratic impeachment as a powerful foil to galvanize Republicans in droves to re-elect Trump.

Several of the President's political advisers, preparing for a re-election campaign focused on boosting turnout among the President's base of supporters, have looked to the possibility of Trump's impeachment as an opportunity to cast Trump as a victim of Washington politics and overzealous Democrats, three sources close to the White House and the campaign said. And with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation -- which Trump has frequently cast on the campaign trail as a "witch hunt" -- expected to end soon, Trump is looking for a new boogeyman.

ABC News: As Democrats arm for more investigations, Trump insider confides, 'We're not ready'

One of President Donald Trump's closest political advisers, a key combatant two decades ago in the impeachment battle against President Bill Clinton, says the White House and the Republicans in Congress are not sufficiently prepared for the investigative onslaught that he anticipates will dominate the remainder of Trump's term.

"We're not ready," said David Bossie, a pugnacious Republican operative who served as Trump's deputy campaign manager and has been counseling both the White House and congressional Republicans.

"Do I see a killer team that is ready for the impeachment proceedings that are potentially coming ... do I think the White House is ready? From a staff standpoint -- I would say no," Bossie said. "Do I believe they are in the process of getting ready? Yes."

Fox News: Warrant sought in UC-Berkeley attack on conservative activist as Citizens United Foundation offers big reward

Citizens United Foundation is offering a $50,000 reward for details that would lead to arrest and conviction in connection with an alleged assault last week on a conservative activist on at the University of California-Berkeley.

Hayden Williams, 26, was allegedly assaulted while helping recruit conservatives at U-C Berkeley.

Two men last Tuesday approached his table at the University of California, Berkeley, where the activist was recruiting members to the conservative group Turning Point USA, although he is not a member himself. An argument ensued and Williams held up his cellphone and began filming the two men who were allegedly harassing him.

One of the two men knocked over the table, police said, and then punched Williams several times, causing injuries to his face. Much of the incident was captured on a witness’ cellphone.

In a statement, Citizens United said: “Any person having information related to this crime is requested to contact Citizens United Foundation at the following email address: BerkeleyThugReward@citizensunited.org. In the email, please provide contact information and details of the information in your possession, including relevant facts. Any information provided will be promptly forwarded to the UC Berkeley Police Department.”

Deseret News: 11 opinions on President Trump's State of the Union from The New York Times, Washington Post, CNN and Fox News

SALT LAKE CITY — President Donald Trump delivered the State of the Union address Tuesday night, and there were multiple opinions on Trump’s words, and the speech itself, in the immediate aftermath.

Trump focused on a number of topics in his speech, drifting from discussions on illegal immigration, the U.S. military, and plans to combat HIV and AIDS. He also made pointed remarks about abortion and how the U.S. will never be a socialist country. Trump also made a case for unity in his speech.

A number of columnists, opinion writers and editorial boards wrote about Trump’s speech. Here’s what they wrote.

...

David N. Bossie wrote for Fox News that he feels optimistic that Trump will work with Democrats.
“Think of it. Even in the face of a permanent Democrat obstruction campaign and an onslaught of partisan investigations throughout his presidency, President Trump is choosing unity. President Trump made clear — once again – that he wants to work with Democrats on border security, health care and infrastructure. But it takes two to tango. This constitutional republic of ours cannot function if one side flat-out refuses to participate.”

Polizette: Americans ‘Deserve Protection’ That the Border Wall Will Provide, Bossie Says

Americans “deserve protection” from the threats illegal immigration pose to the nation — and they deserve the protection that a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border can provide, former Trump deputy campaign manager David Bossie said Thursday night on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.”

President Donald Trump campaigned heavily on his now-iconic pledge to build a border wall.

Although Republicans held majorities in both the House and the Senate for the first two years of Trump’s presidency, lawmakers could not reach an agreement on funding the border wall — and punted on the issue.

Now that Democrats again have a majority in the House, the $5 billion in border wall funding that Trump is demanding will become even more difficult to attain as both parties struggle to reopen the government after the partial shutdown.

Although Trump and GOP lawmakers showed a willingness to lower the $5 billion request in a compromise, newly minted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) still are refusing to budge on providing a cent of border wall funding.

After reclaiming the House gavel, Pelosi and the new Democratic majority passed a spending bill on Thursday to end the partial government shutdown that failed to include any funding for the wall.

Bossie argued Thursday night against Chris Hahn, a former Democratic aide to Schumer, about what constitutes border security and why the wall is needed to secure the border.
