Today is October 10 and these are the stories I am following.
1-Whistleblower had ‘contact’ with presidential candidates
The attorneys representing the whistleblower at the center of Democrats’ impeachment inquiry acknowledged in a statement Wednesday that their client “has come into contact with presidential candidates from both parties” — but insisted the contact involved the politicians’ roles as “elected officials – not as candidates.” Mark Zaid and Andrew Bakaj asserted in their statement that the whistleblower “has never worked for or advised a political candidate, campaign or party” — leaving open the possibility that the whistleblower advised a current 2020 Democratic presidential candidate prior to their run for office.
DML: If the Mueller investigation was a witch hunt, then this impeachment inquiry is the burning at the stake.
2-Trump to cooperate if…
President Trump on Wednesday told reporters that he would cooperate with a formal impeachment inquiry if there is a House vote on the investigation and if Democrats commit to rules he believes are fair. Trump also said Republicans must get a “fair shake.”
DML: In other words, Trump won’t be cooperating.
3- Biden calls for impeachment
Former Vice President Joe Biden for the first time called for the impeachment of President Trump over the Ukrainian controversy. According to a new Fox News poll released Wednesday, just over half of voters want President Trump impeached and removed from office. A new high of 51 percent wants Trump impeached and removed from office, another 4 percent want him impeached but not removed, and 40 percent oppose impeachment altogether.
DML: I know polls only count when Trump likes them, but this is not a good poll. This is all heading in the wrong direction.
4-Turkey says ground forces advancing in Syria, at least seven civilians among the first deaths reported
Turkish ground forces pressed their advance against Kurdish fighters in northern Syria on Thursday, Turkey’s Defense Ministry said, launching airstrikes and unleashing artillery shelling on Syrian towns and villages the length of its border. The latest development comes as at least seven civilians and three members of the Kurdish-led force known as the Syrian Democratic Forces were among the first reported deaths Wednesday after Turkey announced that its ground forces invaded northeastern Syria to fight against Kurdish forces.
DML: The move by Trump to pull out of the area and leave the Kurds wide open to the Turks is so ridiculous it can only amount to one thing… in war time a president usually receives the unconditional support of the people. Could he be thinking that far ahead? Mistake if he is.
5-PG&E begins second wave of California planned power outages to head off wildfire risk
The largest utility company in California began its second wave of planned power outages to head off wildfire danger from downed power lines Wednesday evening, according to a report. Pacific Gas and Electric Co. delayed the outages planned for noon local time Wednesday in parts of Northern California until after 7 p.m. Around 234,000 customers were expected to lose power in the second wave, Sacramento’s KCRA-TV reported.
DML: We pray for those in harms way. That said, the state as a whole has lost its way under radical leaders like Gov. Newsome.
