Congress is Back: Impeachment, One Day at a Time

Good Day World!

Congress is back in town.

The chances of a formal impeachment will be accelerated with numerous Congressional hearings gathering more vital evidence daily.

Today, will feature Fiona Hill, who served as Trump's top Russia adviser until she left the administration in August. She'll be testifying before three committees.

There's some question if Semyon Kislin, a business associate of Rudy Giuliani, will appear for a scheduled deposition today.

In addition, US State Department deputy assistant secretary George Kent, is expected to appear before three committees.

One of the most interesting interviews is set for Thursday, when Gordon Sondland, the U.S. Ambassador to the European Union, testifies in front of a joint congressional committee about his conversation with Trump.

A slew of subpoena deadlines are up this week

* Vice President Mike Pence is looking at a subpoena deadline by Friday.

* Energy Secretary, Rick Perry, also faces a subpoena deadline on Friday.

* Trump's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, makes it three for Friday.

* Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, associates of Giuliani, face a deadline for documents midweek. Both have been arrested and charged with campaign violations, money laundering, and other financial crimes last week.

* Defense Secretary, Mark Esper, and acting director of the Office of Management and Budget, Russ Vought also face subpoenas.

As polls show continued support for impeaching Trump, the chances of formally filing for impeachment may only be weeks away, as long as the Democrats are patient... and take it day-by-day.

Time for me to walk on down the road...
