Romper Room on Pennsylvania Avenue

Miss Nancy explains to Donnie that “All roads with you lead to Putin” is a Don’t Bee.

Meanwhile the acting Executive Branch added “Press Secretary” to his duty list:

A senior White House official has admitted military aid to Ukraine was withheld partly to pressure Kyiv to investigate allegations on the Democrats and the 2016 election.

Acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney said President Trump had mentioned Democrat “corruption”.

But Mr Trump was also concerned about wider corruption in Ukraine, he said.

“That’s why we held up the money,” he said, calling it “absolutely appropriate”.

Elijah Eugene Cummings 1951 – 2019

The BBC has a very straight forward article: Elijah Cummings: Veteran US Democrat dies aged 68. On CNN a more personal remembrance: Elijah Cummings understood the meaning of struggle. Crooks & Liars covers reaction on Twitter.

Elijah Cummings reminded me of one of my favorite all time role models who happened to be in Congress, Barbara Jordan. If you have never heard her Speech on Impeachment during the Watergate hearings, hie thee hence and listen. If God is a woman, She would sound like Barbara Jordan. Elijah Cummings is well named and may yet return like the original of that name to deal with evil doers. Hours before his passing he signed more subpoenas.
