A furious Donald Trump blasted Democrats for wasting America’s time. Venting his frustration on Twitter “The Do Nothing Democrats should be focused on building up our country, not wasting everyone’s time and energy on BULLSHIT, which is what they have been doing ever since I got overwhelmingly elected in 2016, 223-306. Get a better candidate this time, you’ll need it!”

Following the twitter tirade from the President, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said they were not “fooling around.” Trump insisting that “the whistleblower is very inaccurate.” despite Trump’s own community inspector general deemed the report “urgent and credible.”

On Wednesday Democrats unveiled a plan to subpoena a haul of documents from the White House related to the investigation. The sharp Democratic response suggests that the added gravity of a formal impeachment inquiry could shift Washingtons balance of power. These fast moving developments show how Democrats are using their constitutional authority to quickly build up a framework for their investigation.

This article was written by Stephen Collinson from CNN. I think he is certainly left leaning. But he did include arguments from both political parties. CNN has also updated this article several times with more information as it has become available. They also have a video that gives the reader a quick overview of the important topics.

  1. CNN is in a difficult spot on this story, simply because Trump has made it a focus of his fake news arguments. It will have to be more careful than usual to be objective, and not make mistakes.
