We know how the impeachment show ends, but we’re still watching – Politico

We know how the impeachment show ends, but we’re still watching – Politico

THE HOUSE’S IMPEACHMENT OF PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP IS KIND OF LIKE WATCHING the newest season of “Jack Ryan” on Amazon Prime Video. Sure, the twists and turns are exciting. You know the dude is going to get chased, shot at or stabbed -- and do it all in exotic locales. Every episode makes you sweat as Jack gets into one pickle or another. In the end, though, you also know the showrunners probably won’t kill him off. IMPEACHMENT IS KIND OF SIMILAR. Yes, the hearings these next two weeks are momentous and historic. They will highlight just how unusual this White House is: The president’s personal lawyer was running around the globe trying to get a foreign country to investigate a political rival, and the U.S. government was dangling meetings and money as enticements. We’ll hear from longtime foreign servants, a military official and White House insiders, all of whom have the same view of this administration’s behavior: improper, immoral and wrong-headed. BUT, AT THE END OF THE DAY, we all have a pretty good idea how this movie is going to end: a nearly party-line vote, with most every Democrat voting to impeach the president, and nearly all Republicans voting against it. But in the middle -- the next nine days -- you’ll get nonstop, white-knuckle action.

Ousted Republicans plot rematches as impeachment revs up – POLITICO

Trump holds a grip over the Republican base that seems unshakable, even amid the ongoing investigation into alleged efforts by the president to withhold military aid unless Ukraine publicly investigated his political rivals. Trump’s most ardent supporters have already begun organizing in Brindisi’s district, more than a year out from the next election. Pro-Trump groups staged protests outside the freshman Democrat’s office and at some of his public events — including a town hall here in October — to rally local support in New York’s 22nd Congressional District.

Narrow vote blocks Democratic Party from endorsing Costa, Soria – The San Joaquin Valley Sun

Excerpt:

The March Primary is five months away, but an intra-party squabble over a fairly safe Democratic Congressional seat has largely just begun.

During a pre-endorsement meeting in Merced on Saturday, Valley delegates to the California Democratic Party were deadlocked in voting Saturday to endorse a candidate for the 16th Congressional district, currently held by Rep. Jim Costa (D–Fresno).

In two ballots, Costa maintained a slight edge over Soria among local delegates.

On the first balloting, Costa earned 40 of 81 votes, or 49.38 percent of the total vote. Soria picked up 37…
