Democratic leaders walk out of meeting with Trump on Syria, claim president had 'meltdown'

Dem leaders walk out of meetingCongressional Democrats walked out of a White House meeting on Syria Wednesday, claiming President Donald Trump was demeaning to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

"“He was insulting, particularly to the speaker. He called her a ‘third-rate politician,'" said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. "This was not a dialogue, it was sort of a diatribe."

Pelosi said Trump was “shaken up” by having lost most Republicans in a Wednesday vote condemning Trump's decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria,

“What we witnessed on the part of the president was a meltdown, sad to say," Pelosi said.

U.S. appeals court to revisit Trump win in hotel 'emoluments' case

Emoluments case to be revisitedA U.S. appeals court on Tuesday said it would reconsider an earlier ruling that handed victory to U.S. President Donald Trump in a Democratic-backed lawsuit that accuses him of violating anti-corruption provisions of the U.S. Constitution with his Washington hotel.

The Richmond, Virginia-based 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said in an order that it would rehear arguments in the case, which was brought by the Democratic attorneys general of Maryland and the District of Columbia.

A three-judge panel of the court ruled on July 10 that the attorneys general lacked legal standing to bring the lawsuit, which alleged violations of constitutional provisions known as the Emoluments Clauses that bans the president from accepting gifts or payments from foreign governments without congressional consent.

Former Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX) received a subpoena over his contacts with Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani from a grand jury in connection with a Manhattan federal criminal investigation of the former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York.

Matt Mackowiak, a Sessions spokesman, told TPM that the former congressman was “cooperating with the U.S. Attorney from the Southern District of New York and will be providing documents to their office related to this matter over the next couple of weeks as requested.”

Trump's former Russia aide testifies in impeachment probe

Fional Hill

President Donald Trump’s former top Russia aide testified on Monday before House impeachment investigators, as Democrats accelerate efforts to unearth the facts of Rudy Giuliani’s shadow diplomacy with top Ukrainian officials.

Details of Hill’s testimony were closely guarded, as Democrats vehemently defended the secrecy of the evidence-gathering process. Republicans, meanwhile, renewed their attacks over the impeachment procedures, accusing Democrats of keeping witness transcripts under lock and key and depriving the public of an opportunity to hear the evidence.
