Day 80 of the Impeachment Inquiry came in the form of the House Judiciary Committee voting to advance the two Articles of Impeachment, one for Abuse of Power, the other for Obstruction of Congress, to the House for a full vote expected sometime next week.

On both Articles the vote to advance was a straight party line vote, 23-17.

For Friday the 13th, the President has tweeted 15 times and retweeted 1 time.

BBC News has the full results from the General Election held in the UK.

For an analysis of the Johnson win in the UK, @ the News Blender.

To see the “fantastic,” aka whining Republican “warriors,” aka whiners, in action, you can do so here and here.

This is still not true, and I should note, he’s not one time, explained or pointed to a source of this lie. It’s beyond a false claim when it’s made via Twitter 18 times without evidence. For what it’s worth, he has also without evidence claimed to have a 94 percent approval rating among republicans.

As the News Blender reported on Thursday two polls shared via Fox & Friends, showed a slight majority do not approve Impeachment or Removal of President Trump.

Real Clear Politics has the average polling in favor of Impeachment/Removal at 46.5 percent. The average for no Impeachment/Removal is also at 46.5 percent.

During an Oval Office presser the President pushed the great polls, he also explains that his Impeachment started before he announced he was running for President.

But, yeah, the Poll numbers are “through the roof.”

I didn’t realize all of our presidents reached out to foreign countries and said, “I want you to do us a favor though,” and then asked that foreign country to investigate a political rival. If true, then yes, they should have faced Impeachment.

Semi-related to the done “NOTHING” wrong.

The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday, that President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani told them upon his return for the Ukraine, you know, that country that President Trump pressured in the “perfect call” to investigate his political rival, that as he was taxiing down the runway that President Trump called him and asked “What did you get?”

Giuliani replied “more than you can imagine.”

We will have to continue to imagine what Giuliani got in the form of dirt on President Trump’s political rival former Vice President Joe Biden, until Giuliani issues a twenty-page report of his findings.

On Thursday The Wall Street Journal reported that President Trump agreed to a limited agreement with China that would, “roll back existing tariff rates on Chinese goods and cancel new levies set to take effect Sunday as part of a deal to boost Chinese purchases of U.S. farm goods and obtain other concessions, according to people familiar with the matter.”

The Office of the United States Trade Representative announced on Friday that the U.S. and China had reached an “historic and enforceable agreement on a Phase One trade deal that requires structural reforms and other changes to China’s economic and trade regime in the areas of intellectual property, technology transfer, agriculture, financial services, and currency and foreign exchange.”

They went on to explain that “The United States has agreed to modify its Section 301 tariff actions in a significant way.”

They conclude their announcement by explaining “The United States will be maintaining 25 percent tariffs on approximately $250 billion of Chinese imports, along with 7.5 percent tariffs on approximately $120 billion of Chinese imports.”
