GOP Senators ‘Overthinking’ Vote on Our ‘MAJOR NATIONAL EMERGENCY’

White House tries to avert Senate defeat on border emergency

The context here is that the proposal, led by Lee and Tillis, would move to limit executive authority on national emergencies. Without concrete evidence implicating the president, Republican senators worry that advancing impeachment motions plays on progressive aspirations. Fourteen Republican senators backed the bill on Tuesday, which includes Sens. Portman hasn't said how he'll vote Thursday when the House resolution comes before the Senate. John Kennedy, R-La., recalling a favorite refrain of Monday Night Football announcers when a game was out of reach.

GOP Sens. Mike Lee of Utah and Todd Young of IN were also IN discussions with the White House about related legislation that would curb the ability of future presidents to declare national emergencies.

Trump expressed his frustration with the GOP in a tweet Wednesday, pressing them to stand with him on the U.S. -Mexico border wall and reject the resolution. "No, I don't think he's fit to be president of the United States".

Lee said in a statement that he will now back the resolution canceling the border emergency because his own bill now lacks "an immediate path forward".

"They are looking for an opportunity to look like they're independent, but they're not addressing this issue right now of the President's emergency", said Brown.

It could also spell the end of Kolton Miller's time at left tackle and the conclusion of Donald Penn's tenure with the Raiders. The first day of free agency is in the books, and it was a busy day for the Raiders.

"Standing up for the separation of powers is important", Lee said Tuesday. Thom Tillis of North Carolina, Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Kentucky's Rand Paul.

The White House has been trying to avert defeat. Since the Democratic-run House voted last month to block Trump, Senate passage would send the resolution to the White House, where it would face a certain veto. The official was not authorized to publicly discuss private conversations and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Trump told reporters that he has advised GOP senators to "vote any way you want" on the resolution blocking his emergency declaration - but he added a warning.

"I think she is aware of the political mistake it would be to go after Trump", former senior adviser to Trump's 2016 campaign Barry Bennett told The Hill. Framing Thursday's vote that way seemed to be a message all but aimed directly at undecided GOP senators facing re-election races next year, of whom there are several.

A vote on Lee's plan was expected after Congress returns from a recess later this month.

President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he "greatly" appreciated House Speaker Nancy Pelosi opposing impeaching him, saying "he's just not worth it". "Legally I don't think it's something that can ever be 100 percent off the table, but if that's how she feels right now I respect that".

"Republican Senators are proposing new legislation to allow the President to violate the Constitution just this once in order to give themselves cover", she said.

In New York, federal prosecutors are examining the president's role in hush-money payments shortly before the election to porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal to keep them quiet about affairs they said they had with Trump. Still, Congress would be highly unlikely to muster the two-thirds majorities needed to eventually override a veto. Presidents have never before declared an emergency after Congress voted to deny them money for the same goal. Mike Lee (R-Utah) that would have amended the National Emergencies Act to automatically end presidential emergency declarations after 30 days unless Congress votes to extend the emergency.

If passed into law, Lee's bill could impact Trump's national border emergency in the future, since ongoing national emergency declarations must be reaffirmed annually.
