Kamala Harris wants Trump's Twitter account suspended for whistleblower's safety

And there is a crazy or two out there listening and see it as permission --or a command to harm the whistleblower!

Kamala Harris wants Trump’s Twitter account suspended for whistleblower’s safety

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) is calling for President Donald Trump’s Twitter account to be suspended, saying his tweets are putting the anonymous whistleblower in harm’s way.

“Frankly, when you look at what he’s been tweeting today directed at the whistleblower, directed at so many people, you know, I, frankly, think that based on this and all we’ve seen him do before, including attacking members of Congress, that he, frankly, should be -- his Twitter account should be suspended,” the presidential candidate said on Monday’s “Anderson Cooper 360” on CNN. “I think there is plenty of now evidence to suggest that he is irresponsible with his words in a way that could result in harm to other people. And so the privilege of using those words in that way should probably be taken from him.”..............................

U.S. citizenship applications are backlogged, prolonging the wait for civil and voting right

The backlog in naturalization applications has ballooned to more than 700,000

Ming Hsu Chen October 1, 2019 8:00AM (UTC)


In a study published on Sept. 12, the Colorado Advisory Committee to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, of which I am a member, found the backlog in naturalization applications has ballooned and wait times have doubled in the last three years.

Path to citizenship

Before someone can become a citizen, he or she must spend at least a decade legally inside the U.S. After obtaining a visa to enter the U.S., he or she will spend five years or more waiting to become eligible for a green card that establishes legal permanent residence. Then there is another five-year wait to become eligible for naturalized citizenship.

The next steps in the application process take time: a 20-page form called the N-400, a US$725 filing fee, a biometric screening to authenticate identity and an interview with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service to demonstrate knowledge of U.S. civics and proficiency in English, plus possible requests for more evidence...............................................

CNN: Trump's Aides Warning Him There's A Real Chance He'll Be Impeached

Source: TPM

October 1, 2019 8:46 am

President Trump’s aides and allies have warned him in recent days that there’s a real chance he might be impeached, according to CNN.

CNN’s Jim Acosta reported on Monday night that aides have “cautioned him just in the last few days he faces the real likelihood of impeachment,” adding that others close to Trump are “divided” on the gravity of House Democrats’ impeachment efforts.

“(Some aides are) reassuring the president that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is just placating Democrats and won’t ultimately drive the process toward an impeachment vote,” Acosta said.

Trump may have lied to Mueller, House Democrats say

Source: Politico

Dems believe the special counsel's grand-jury materials could aid their Ukraine investigation, according to a court filing.

By ANDREW DESIDERIO Updated 09/30/2019 08:21 PM EDT

Lawyers for the House of Representatives revealed on Monday that they have reason to believe that the grand-jury redactions in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report show that President Donald Trump lied about his knowledge of his campaign’s contacts with WikiLeaks.

The attorneys made the stunning suggestion in a court filing as part of the House Judiciary Committee’s bid for Mueller’s grand-jury materials, which have remained secret by law.

“Not only could those materials demonstrate the president’s motives for obstructing the special counsel’s investigation, they also could reveal that Trump was aware of his campaign’s contacts with WikiLeaks,” the lawyers wrote in the filing, which was in response to the Justice Department’s opposition to the disclosure of the grand-jury information.

To back up their claim, the House’s legal team — led by House General Counsel Douglas Letter — cited a passage in Mueller’s report about former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort’s testimony that he “recalled” Trump asking to be kept “updated” about WikiLeaks’ disclosures of Democratic National Committee emails. There is a grand-jury redaction in that passage, the lawyers note........................................

Whistleblower in Ukraine scandal under federal protection: report

Source: the hilll

September 29, 2019 - 08:08 PM EDT


"60 Minutes" host Scott Pelley announced the network had obtained a letter indicating the whistleblower is under protection because they fear for their safety.

The letter from the whistleblower's lawyer, Andrew Bakaj, Compass Rose LLC, indicates that the office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) has activated "appropriate resources" to protect them.

The Hill has reached out to Bakaj.

The complaint, which was released to the public on Thursday, is at the center of the House Democrat's impeachment inquiry.

Trump and his allies have sought to discredit the complaint and the whistleblower behind it.

The president on Sunday tweeted that the person who filed the complaint should be outed and said they will face "big consequences."...............................
