Read @FoxReports  for a great breakdown of Schumer’s opening offer on Senate impeachment trial structure/process

can't say i ever imagined this would be the case months ago, but here we are. would note Lighthizer spent a significant amount of time keeping them in the loop on things throughout and Wyden heaped praise on him when I asked him about the trade rep this week

look away for a few minutes and the USMCA text comes out. happy reading:

wow no mention of approps deal that's messed up dude

Speaker Ryan last wk: "I think that was some kind of a misinterpretation of a private meeting." Trump: Nope. All me. Definitely said that.
