It’s Monday.

Day 55 of the Impeachment Inquiry.

The Weekend tweet count.

On Friday as the News Blender reported the President tweeted 14 times, he finished Friday by tweeting and retweeting another 26 times, giving him a total of 40 tweets for Friday.

On Saturday the President tweeted and retweeted 23 times. On Sunday the President tweeted and retweeted 49 times.

40 + 23 + 49 =’s 112 – the 14 covered Friday brings his total weekend tweets and retweets to 98.

A few standout tweets from the weekend [feel free to post your own, you can find them @ realDonaldTrump.]

Reuters explains that on Friday the Department of Ag., said it will “begin making a second round of 2019 trade aid payments to U.S. farmers next week.”

This is the second round of a three-tranche aid package totaling $16 billion that was announced in May, at the time the News Blender reported that the first round of payments was set to begin in July or August.

NBC News reports that Pyongyang’s office Korean Central News Agency lashed out against former Vice President Joe Biden on Friday. It was unclear at the time what comments the 2020 presidential hopeful made that provoked the attack.

The Washington Post on Monday reports that according to the official website of the official Korean Central News Agency, Foreign Ministry adviser Kim Kye Gwan said that he read President Trump’s tweet, but that North Korea was not interested in another fruitless meeting.

We are no longer interested in such talks that bring nothing to us. As we have got nothing in return, we will no longer gift the U.S. president with something he can brag about, but get compensation for the successes that President Trump is proud of as his administrative achievements

Gwan statement via the Washington Post.

Impeachment Inquiry News.

This week the House Intelligence Committee will hold five more public hearings allowing the public to hear testimony from eight witnesses.

  • Vice President Mike Pence aide Jennifer Williams. Williams was interviewed by the three House Committees on November 7th. Her testimony was made public on November 16th.

Williams according to her testimony was present in the Situation Room for the phone call. Asked if she took notes, she replied “yes.” (pg. 62 starts the exchange regarding the July 25th call.)

CNN reported on Sunday that when asked for a comment regarding the tweet, Vice President Pence’s press secretary, Katie Waldman responded by saying, “Jennifer is a State Department employee.”

People who have cooperated and testified in regards to the Impeachment Inquiry have been labeled without evidence as “Never Trumpers.” Williams is not the first person attacked by the President, as the News Blender reported on Friday, via tweet, the President attacked former Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch during her public testimony.

For another example: Ambassador Bill Taylor, who replaced Yovanovitch after she was abruptly removed from her post in the Ukraine was also labeled a Never Trumper via tweet.

As a reminder Never Trumper =’s Human Scum.

For Monday the President has tweeted 5 times.

Never has the Republican Party been so united as it is now. 95% A.R.

This is still not accurate.

The Washington Post reported on November 1st, that “Overall, Trump’s approval hasn’t changed all that much on our polling since he’s been president. He has never been above 42 percent approval and never under 36 percent. Right now, he’s at 38 percent approval, on the lower side of things.”

The article goes on to say that President Trump’s approval ratings among Republicans is about 74 percent.

President Trump offered written answers to some of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s questions during the Russian Interference Investigation.

According to the Mueller Report, located in Appendix C, they received President Trump’s written responses in late November 2018.

As a reminder.

The Hill reports also present in the meeting between Chairman Powell and President Trump was Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. The meeting at the White House comes after Powell, who the President often criticizes on Twitter, offered testimony before Congress.

During his testimony he said the Fed intends to keep the interest rate steady, unless the economy takes a turn for the worst. While Powell did not respond directly to the pressure President Trump often places on the Fed via tweets and public statements, he did explain that negative rates wouldn’t make sense while the U.S. economy is still expanding.

The meeting was not listed on President Trump’s schedule.

Fox News reports that Rep. Jeff Van Drew (D-NJ), was one of the two Democrats that voted against the Impeachment Inquiry. In an interview on Sunday with Sunday Morning Futures hosted by Maria Bartiromo Van Drew said:

There is some discussion among some of them, quietly, privately, of concern certainly. I mean, what I’m hearing out in the street is they’re kind of tired. They’re kind of worn out. They’re kind of bored, most folks. And they really want to move on unless there’s something new and amazing. We know the end game here,

There has still been no tweet regarding the Governor’s election from Louisiana.
