While most Americans were watching the first public hearings in the ongoing impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump, some may have overlooked revelations from the trial of longtime Trump advisor Roger Stone.

Stone was arrested after findings from the Mueller investigation revealed that Stone worked with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to obtain emails from the Democratic National Committee which were stolen by Russia.

As the race for the White House heats up, political ads will be unveiled in target markets. Three so-called battleground states—Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan—will soon be seeing a new campaign from American Bridge 21st Century, a liberal political action committee (PAC).

Who better to reach the people in those states than other Pennsylvanians, Wisconsinites and Michiganders? And who better to address voters who support President Donald Trump than people who voted for him in 2016?

Lev Parnas, an associate of President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, was arrested last week on campaign finance violations for his numerous illegal donations to Trump and other Republican legislative candidates.

Soon after, on the White House lawn, Trump told reporters that he never knew Parnas, but probably had a picture with him. He then threw Giuliani under the bus, saying they were probably clients of his. Parnas was instrumental in helping Giuliani set up meetings with officials in Ukraine to potentially open up an investigation into the President's political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden.

President Donald Trump's Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney admitted that the Trump administration withheld congressionally allocated military aid from Ukraine on the condition that officials there investigate the conspiracy theory that a DNC server tucked away in Ukraine reveals that Democrats colluded with Ukrainians to frame Russia for hacking the 2016 election.

Mulvaney's admission struck a critical blow to the long-held Republican talking point that there was no "quid pro quo" offered by Trump to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky when Trump asked Zelensky to investigate his political rivals for personal gain.

It turns out Rudy Giuliani's strange ramblings aren't just limited to news network appearances.

Amid breaking stories of Trump's corrupt interactions with world leaders and fantasies of alligator-infested moats around the Southern border, Giuliani pledged to White House correspondent for The Atlantic, Elaina Plott, that he would sue "the swamp."

Hardly anyone is surprised that—as support for President Donald Trump's impeachment builds—that Trump and his allies are scrambling to distract from revelations that Trump urged Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Trump's potential 2020 Democratic opponent Vice President Joe Biden.

Naturally, they're pointing fingers at an all-too-familiar target: Trump's 2016 rival and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

As impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump begin to ramp up, the State Department is dredging up its investigation into a subject that dominated the news during the 2016 election: former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's emails.

An FBI investigation previously condemned Clinton's use of a private email server for State Department business during the Obama era, but assured that her activity wasn't criminal.
