Impeachment has been the Democrats" No. 1 agenda priority since even before President Trump was elected, and it"s getting to a point in Washington where members of Congress – like those Democrats who won in districts where Trump also won – are going to have to be making decisions.
Or maybe not.
The president, on a trip to the United Kingdom for NATO meetings, is openly speculating about whether the Supreme Court could, or would, intervene.
Just landed in the United Kingdom, heading to London for NATO meetings tomorrow. Prior to landing I read the Republicans Report on the Impeachment Hoax. Great job! Radical Left has NO CASE. Read the Transcripts. Shouldn’t even be allowed. Can we go to Supreme Court to stop?

He said, "Just landed in the United Kingdom, heading to London for NATO meetings tomorrow. Prior to landing I read the Republicans Report on the Impeachment Hoax. Great job! Radical Left has NO CASE. Read the Transcripts. Shouldn"t even be allowed. Can we go to Supreme Court to stop?"
The Washington Examiner explained the Republican report will "stand as a defense against the report set to be released by Chairman Adam Schiff later this week."
That reportedly will include all the Democrat claims about the president. Their current hearings have focused on their allegation of quid pro quo during a telephone call Trump had with the president of Ukraine, even though both men said that was not the case.
The Hill said that Trump one time earlier had raised the possibility of appealing the case to the Supreme Court, when the Mueller report was released.
"There"s no precedent for a president taking his impeachment case to the high court, and legal experts have previously said it"s unlikely the justices would hear such a case," the report stated.
After a series of hearings in the Intelligence Committee where Schiff orchestrated all the testimony, instructing members which questions they could and could not ask, and instructing witnesses what they could and could not say, the issue is moving into the House Judiciary Committee.
The Hill said, "The president"s GOP allies at no point over the course of the 123-page document concede any wrongdoing by Trump, instead insisting that with proper context the administration"s actions were "entirely prudent."
"Trump himself has maintained that his much-scrutinized July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was "perfect.""
Trump during the call asked Zelensky to look into reports of corruption and election interference during 2016.
