Dems Consider Impeachment: US Politics in 60 Seconds

Well, it's slightly more likely, but still very unlikely to happen. There's not widespread public support. It would be very dangerous for Democrats to impeach. They'd rather just keep talking about it. What happened to Beto-mentum? At a time when somebody like Elizabeth Warren seems to come out with new big ideas every day, he's got to step it up. Will big GOP donors line up with Trump in 2020? People who supported Jeb Bush, Mitt Romney, they're all starting to line up with Trump, because they like the tax cuts and don't want to see a Democrat win. Is there bipartisan support for lowering drug prices? It's a big issue for Trump, it's a big issue for Democrats.

Fifteen percent of voters said they would support him, up from 1 percent in the February poll. The New Hampshire poll showed Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris and Cory Booker next at 5, 4 and 3 percent, respectively, in what has separated into a second tier. Beto O’Rourke also got 3 percent, Amy Klobuchar 2 percent, and Kristen Gillibrand 1 percent. About 55 percent of Democrats reported being “extremely interested” in the 2020 race, compared with only 34 percent who expressed those sentiments in May 2015. Thanks for reading.

Warren unveils $640 billion college debt forgiveness plan

The Massachusetts senator says the proposal unveiled Monday would eliminate almost all student loan debt for 42 million Americans, canceling $50,000 in debt for each person with household income under $100,000. According to Warren's description of the plan in a piece to be posted on Medium, the debt cancellation proposal would create a one-time cost to the federal government of $640 billion. Many in the growing field of Democratic candidates have proposed reforming the nation's student loan programs, including dramatic restructuring of existing refinancing structures, but Warren appears to be the first to propose flat-out debt cancellation. Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand and Kamala Harris, are backing the Debt-Free College Act , a bill that would cover all costs for students attending a public college without necessitating loans. Among Warren's other proposals is elimination of tuition and fees for two- and four-year public college degree programs, as well as a $100 billion investment in Pell Grants, a federal aid program that requires no payback. Tuition-free higher education was a mainstay of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders's 2016 presidential run. Warren announced the policy ahead of a CNN town hall in New Hampshire focusing on issues important to young voters. Her slot in the five-hour broadcast Monday comes along with other appearances by Harris, Sanders and Sen. Amy Klobuchar as well as Pete Buttigieg, mayor of South Bend, Indiana. Following New Hampshire, Warren this week is making stops in South Carolina, Texas, Iowa and Nevada. ——— Meg Kinnard can be reached at http://twitter.com/MegKinnardAP

Reaction to Mueller Report Divides Along Partisan Lines

Erin Schaff/The New York Times WASHINGTON — House Democrats vowed on Friday to pursue the revelations in the special counsel’s report on President Trump but drew little Republican support in a nation still deeply polarized over the investigation that has dogged the White House for two years. “Statements are made about me by certain people in the Crazy Mueller Report, in itself written by 18 Angry Democrat Trump Haters, which are fabricated & totally untrue,” Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter. Mr. Trump’s lawyer, Rudolph W. Giuliani, challenged the credibility of Mr. McGahn’s account later on Friday. “It can’t be taken at face value,” he said in an interview. “It’s a mystery why Rudy Giuliani feels the need to relitigate incidents the attorney general and deputy attorney general have concluded were not obstruction,” said the lawyer, William A. Burck. “But they are accurately described in the report.” On the campaign trail, Democratic presidential candidates condemned the president’s conduct and called for action against him. Mr. Trump’s critics called it a devastating indictment of a candidate willing to profit from the help of a foreign power and a president who repeatedly sought to disrupt or end the investigation even if he was not charged with violating the law. The subpoena issued on Friday by Representative Jerrold Nadler, Democrat of New York and the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, escalated a fight with Mr. Barr over what material Congress is entitled to see from the investigation even as Democrats continued to pummel the attorney general for effectively serving as the president’s defense lawyer. “The department will continue to work with Congress to accommodate its legitimate requests consistent with the law and long-recognized executive branch interests.” Mr. Barr redacted about 10 percent of the report, blacking out information that would divulge secret grand jury evidence, expose classified intelligence, compromise continuing investigations, or invade the privacy or damage the reputation of “peripheral third parties.” Democratic leaders on Friday rejected Mr. Barr’s offer to show just select leaders a version with only the grand jury material redacted. “The attorney general stands ready to testify before our committee and to have the special counsel do the same.
