Today is Oct 2 and these are the stories I am following.
1-Red-state Dems worried Trump impeachment push will kill hopes of retaking Senate in 2020
Some red-state Senate Democrats are fretting that the ongoing House impeachment inquiry could expand uncontrollably and become a “kitchen sink” of complaints about President Trump and hurt chances of regaining the Senate majority in 2020. Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Jon Tester of Montana specifically expressed concerns and have told Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., that leadership cannot allow liberal Democrats to push for the inquiry to include allegations about Trump illegally using his office to enrich himself.

2-Rudy Giuliani on warpath with Dems
The former mayor of NYC said Tuesday he’s considering individual lawsuits against House Democrats for allegedly violating the constitutional and civil rights of the president and members of his administration amid new congressional inquiries and subpoenas resulting from a whistleblower’s complaint.
DML: Attack them, Rudy! Attack…!
3- Dems single out Pompeo
Reps. Eliot Engel, Adam Schiff and Elijah Cummings, the Democratic chairmen of three House committees, informed the State Department in a letter late Tuesday that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo appears to have a “conflict of interest” and might now be a “fact witness” in their ongoing impeachment inquiry, after Pompeo accused Dems of trying to “bully” foreign service officers into testifying.
DML: Dems are digging such a great big useless hole that it’s like watching a kid at the beach trying to dig to China.
4-Trump inquired about shooting migrants at the border
A new report from the New York Times on Tuesday shows the extraordinary measures President Trump allegedly inquired about as part of his push to secure the U.S.-Mexico border. In an excerpt from their upcoming book, “Border Wars: Inside Trump’s Assault on Immigration,” Times reporters Michael Shear and Julie Hirschfeld Davis allege that Trump has repeatedly floated the idea of installing a “water-filled trench” and stocking it with deadly reptiles. He also suggested shooting migrants in the legs to “slow them down.”
DML: According to Fox News, a source who was in the room at the time confirmed the conversation about shooting migrants in the legs. My response to all this was delivered in a Walk&Talk last night. Watch it here.
5-Federal judge rules for Harvard in affirmative action case
A federal judge on Tuesday ruled against families suing Harvard for allegedly discriminating against Asian-American applicants in a blow to activists who hoped to chip away at affirmative action programs. U.S. District Court Judge Allison D. Burroughs said Harvard had a compelling interest to consider race in admissions because of the benefits of a diverse student body, citing Supreme Court precedent from the 1978 affirmative action case Regents of the University of California v. Bakke. Burroughs said Harvard’s program was “not perfect” but ruled that it tread lightly enough in considering race that it could be considered constitutional. The organization representing the plaintiffs, Students for Fair Admissions, said it will appeal the decision.
6- Cop gets screwed!
A Virginia police officer was suspended after allegedly turning over a suspected undocumented immigrant to federal authorities following a traffic accident last month. The Fairfax County Police Department didn’t identify the officer in a statement released Tuesday but said the incident occurred on Sept. 21 when an officer was dispatched to a car accident. The officer discovered one of the drivers didn’t have a Virginia driver’s license and ran a check with the state Department of Motor Vehicles, police said. The check revealed the driver had a violation for failing to appear for a deportation hearing. The officer verified the warrant and alerted officials with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). An ICE agent was close by and arrived at the scene. The officer cited the driver for not having a driver’s license and turned them over to the federal agent. The Fairfax County Police Department enacted a 2007 policy that prohibits officers from confirming a person’s immigration status and detaining them solely based on civil violations of immigration law.
