Democrat seeking to unseat Nunes saw huge spike in campaign contributions, he says

The House Intelligence Committee’s two weeks of public hearings put several GOP lawmakers in the spotlight, including the panel’s ranking Republican, Rep. Devin Nunes (Calif.). A Democrat seeking to unseat Nunes next year said Wednesday that the high-profile hearings resulted in a massive infusion of cash to his campaign.White House officials will spend their Thanksgiving weekend up against a Sunday deadline to decide whether to participate in a hearing next week by the House Judiciary Committee, the panel that will soon weigh whether to move forward with articles of impeachment against President Trump.The committee is awaiting a report on Trump’s conduct toward Ukraine that House investigators are pulling together based on public testimony and private depositions. The transcripts of the final two of those depositions were released Tuesday and revealed that two officials at the Office of Management and Budget resigned in part over concerns about the holdup in military assistance to Ukraine.Democrats are seeking to build a case that Trump leveraged military assistance and an Oval Office meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in exchange for investigations of former vice president Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden and a debunked theory alleging Ukrainian interference in the 2016 presidential election.●Two Office of Management and Budget officials resigned in part over concerns about Ukraine aid hold, official testifies.●As Trump cases arrive, Supreme Court’s desire to be seen as neutral arbiter will be tested.●Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says Trump’s debunked Ukraine conspiracy theory is worth looking into.November 27, 2019 at 3:00 PM ESTNunes’s Democratic challenger says donations soared after impeachment hearings beganPhil Arballo, a Latino business executive seeking the Democratic nomination to unseat Nunes in California’s 22nd Congressional District, said Wednesday he saw a huge spike in donations, social media followers and general interest in his campaign since the Intelligence Committee’s high-profile impeachment hearings began.In those two weeks, Arballo said he received $310,000, nearly doubling his year-to-date fundraising. He also said he saw a 127 percent increase in signups on his website and saw his Twitter followers surge to 150,000.Nunes, as ranking Republican on the Intelligence Committee, became the face of Trump’s defense during the hearings.Arballo told The Washington Post that constituents in the district see Nunes as more concerned about Trump’s well-being than their own.“We want to show people this is who he is now,” Arballo said. “It’s not as an active representative of the 22nd, it’s as a protector of this administration, its scandals and its corruption.”Nunes’s district leans conservative, and he won his reelections by double digits until last year, when he beat his Democratic challenger by 5.5 percentage points, giving Democrats hope that it’s a seat that could be in reach.“If he loses it’ll be because he’s his own worst enemy,” Arballo said. “He’s using the seat as a platform, he’s using it as a vehicle to spread his propaganda. It’s not about helping people in the district anymore. I think people see right through it.”By Colby ItkowitzNovember 27, 2019 at 12:45 PM ESTGiuliani was in talks to be paid by Ukrainian official helping to find damaging information on Democrats President Trump’s personal attorney Rudolph W. Giuliani negotiated this year to represent Ukraine’s top prosecutor for at least $200,000 during the same months that Giuliani was working with the prosecutor to dig up dirt on Biden, according to people familiar with the discussions.The people said that Giuliani began negotiations with Ukraine’s top prosecutor, Yuri Lutsenko, about a possible agreement in February. In the agreement, Giuliani’s company would receive payment to represent Lutsenko as the Ukrainian sought to recover assets he believed had been stolen from the government in Kyiv, those familiar with the discussions said.The talks occurred as Giuliani met with Lutsenko in New York in January and then in Warsaw in February while he was also gathering information from Lutsenko on two topics Giuliani said could prove useful to Trump: the involvement of Biden and his son Hunter in Ukraine, and allegations that Ukraine, not Russia, had interfered in the 2016 election.The agreements were never executed, and there is no indication that Giuliani was ultimately paid by Lutsenko or other Ukrainian officials.By Rosalind S. Helderman, Tom Hamburger and Matt ZapotoskyNovember 27, 2019 at 11:20 AM ESTJustice Department asks that Donald McGahn not be compelled to testify pending appealThe Justice Department formally asked an appeals court Wednesday to put on hold a ruling that would require former White House counsel Donald McGahn to testify in the House impeachment inquiry.The Trump administration, which has appealed a lower-court ruling that McGahn must comply with a House subpoena, argued that he shouldn’t be compelled to participate in the investigation until the appeal process is completed.“Only once before in our Nation’s history has an Article III court attempted to compel a close presidential advisor to appear and testify before Congress,” wrote Martin Totaro, an appellate attorney in the Justice Department civil division. “In that case … this Court not only granted a stay pending appeal but took the unusual step of publishing a precedential opinion granting the stay, explaining that the dispute was ‘of potentially great significance for the balance of power between the Legislative and Executive Branches’.”U.S. District Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson of Washington on Monday found no basis for a White House claim that McGahn is “absolutely immune from compelled congressional testimony,” noting that “Presidents are not kings.” The ruling raised the possibility that McGahn could be forced to testify before the House Judiciary Committee as part of the impeachment inquiry.By Spencer S. HsuNovember 27, 2019 at 10:55 AM ESTTrump tweets doctored photo of his head on Sylvester Stallone’s bodyPresident Trump tweeted a doctored photo Wednesday that showed his head superimposed on the body of the actor Sylvester Stallone, who was shirtless and wearing boxing attire. The image appeared to have been taken from promotional materials for “Rocky III,” one in a series of movies focused on the boxing career of the fictional Rocky Balboa, which debuted in 1982.It was not clear what inspired Trump’s tweet. A White House spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.The picture may be a nod to remarks Trump made about his physique during a rally Tuesday night in Florida, when he critized the recent speculation surrounding an unscheduled trip he made to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., on Nov. 16.“It’s very sad. So then instead they brought it down a notch; they said he went into the hospital and it’s true I didn’t wear a tie. Why would I wear a tie if the first thing they do is say, ‘Take off your shirt, sir, and show us that gorgeous chest?’ It’s true. ‘Show — we want to see, sir. We’ve never seen a chest quite like it,’” Trump told the crowd. “No, but seriously why would I put on — I mean I put the tie on and then we’re there in 20 minutes I take it off for the physical, but they said he wasn’t wearing a tie, which is pretty unusual for me honestly. I should have worn the tie, maybe it’s not their fault. But we never apologize. But they said he wasn’t wearing a tie; this is a sign of a massive heart attack.”By John WagnerNovember 27, 2019 at 10:30 AM ESTU.S. judge postpones sentencing for Michael Flynn pending Justice Department watchdog report on origins of Russia probeA federal judge postponed sentencing indefinitely for Michael T. Flynn on Wednesday after prosecutors and the defense jointly asked for a delay until after the Justice Department’s internal watchdog issues a report Dec. 9 on the handling of the FBI’s investigation into possible coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign in 2016.Sentencing for Trump’s former national security adviser had been set for Dec. 18, and federal prosecutors were scheduled to notify the court Monday about whether they would reverse their recommendation of probation and instead ask for prison time for the retired three-star Army general.However, both sides said Tuesday night that they expect that a forthcoming report by Inspector General Michael Horowitz “will examine several topics related” to a request by Flynn’s defense team to find prosecutors in contempt for alleged misconduct.Flynn has accused prosecutors of withholding evidence and sought to compel the government to turn over further documents, if they exist, asserting that he was duped into lyi
