Former National Security Advisor to President Donald Trump resigned in September, but he's been back in the news the past few weeks after testimony from diplomat Dr. Fiona Hill in the impeachment inquiry against Trump.

Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, Ambassador to the E.U. Gordon Sondland, and White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney (among others) conducted a pressure campaign on Ukrainian officials to announce an investigation into the President's political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden.

As Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee overseeing impeachment proceedings, Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA) has been a constant target of derision and insults from President Donald Trump and his Republican allies in Congress.

Trump assigned him the nickname "Shifty Schiff." Republicans have accused him of holding "secret" hearings and falsely assert that he's met the whistleblower whose complaint spurred the impeachment proceedings in the first place.

The phrase "moving the goal posts" refers to giving a set target or demand then when that demand is met, a new demand is immediately issued without acknowledging successfully meeting the original goal.

Just a few months after using a mock movie trailer to remind Americans that a terrifying wave of overt white supremacy in the United States was "not a movie," Eleven Films has done it again—this time, highlighting the reality of President Donald Trump's corruption.

It's been 15 days since House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced an impeachment inquiry into Trump for urging the Ukrainian President to investigate Trump's political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden. Since then, the White House confirmed the allegations with a rough transcript of the damning phone call, a whistleblower complaint corroborated it, and Trump asked the Chinese to investigate Biden on national television.

President Donald Trump spent more time over the weekend making his case for why the House of Representatives should not proceed with an impeachment inquiry. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) made the announcement September 24.

Rather than appeal to the public with constitutional law or proof of his innocence, Trump did what he usually does. Sunday night the President took to Twitter and resurrected a previously abandoned nickname for Nancy Pelosi.

It's been nearly a year since former Fox News host Megyn Kelly was released from a lucrative contract with NBC after the television personality questioned whether or not blackface is appropriate on Halloween (it's not).

Judging from a recent tweet, it looks like Kelly wouldn't find it challenging to step back into her role as one of the most prominent faces of Fox News.

President Donald Trump fumed in a tweet storm on Friday morning against CNN, New York Times White House Correspondent Peter Baker, the Democratic party, the whistleblower who brought his Ukraine call to public consciousness, those who provided the information to the whistleblower, and—most aggressively—Congressman and House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff.

Schiff has been the subject of Trump's ire unceasingly since Thursday morning, when Schiff oversaw the testimony of Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire to the House Intelligence Committee. During the hearing, Schiff said that Trump's efforts to pressure Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to open an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden amounted to a "shakedown."
