Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) sent a bizarre tweet urging staff at the White House to show President Donald Trump a Wall Street Journal op-ed by Daniel Henninger in an effort to influence the President's trade policy, which is suffering due to Trump's propensity for imposing tariffs and advancing trade wars.

But it wasn't the contents of the article that got people's attention. It was the way Grassley spoke of Trump in the tweet.

Since Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced a formal impeachment inquiry to be conducted by the House of Representatives, President Donald Trump, members of his administration and allies in Congress scrambled to subvert Article I, Section 2, Clause 5 of the United States Constitution.

To that end, Senate Judiciary Committee member and fervent Trump supporter Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) claimed Sunday on Face the Nation that the regulations for federal whistleblowers changed recently making the President's actions eligible for the whistleblower to file a complaint. President Trump and those who spread his message online repeated Graham's claim.

President Donald Trump made multiple bizarre comments on Tuesday, but one of the standouts has to do with wind turbines.

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act—Republican tax bill that went into effect last year—has left a lot to be desired, even for many middle class Republicans.

While the bill touted lowered individual tax rates and an increase for the standard deduction, it was heavily criticized for its slashing of corporate tax rates from 35% to 21%—a move many predict will lead to a notable increase in the deficit.

Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) wants to avoid another government shutdown. That's the pointed message he sent President Donald Trump as he spoke from the dais after the Senate's official morning prayer to open Senate business.

"Let’s all pray that the president will have wisdom to sign the bill so government doesn’t shut down,” Grassley said in his capacity as presiding officer of the Senate.

The drama of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation reached its mid-season finale today when Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) called for an FBI investigation into the sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh before the confirmation vote in the senate. Though Flake still voted for Kavanaugh to proceed out of the Senate Judiciary Committee, the demands for an investigation were something Democrats and even some Republicans had been championing, and now the President has relented and requested such an investigation.

Now, a viral photo is showing just how Committee chair Chuck Grassley (R-IA), and committee member Orrin Hatch (R-UT), as well as a mystery aide, reacted the moment Flake announced to the committee that his vote was conditional.

Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA), chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, left a vexing note for Dr. Christine Blasey Ford ahead of her scheduled testimony before the Committee on Thursday.

"Good luck Dr. Ford," the note from Grassley read. It was placed on the table where Ford will be seated during the hearing.
