Mitt Romney told Manu Raju yesterday that he is still weighing whether to vote for a subpoena in Burisma probe. He could kill the effort if he votes 'no' on Wednesday. "There's no question the appearance of looking into Burisma and Hunter Biden appears political," he said. Really, Mitt? Tell us more. Here's hoping his recently-awakened conscience comes up with the right response.

Meanwhile, Ron Johnson continues to lie and weasel around the subject:
Asked why Republicans didn’t investigate Biden/Ukraine when Biden was VP, Ron Johnson first said: “We have been but it is like pulling teeth getting information out of any administration.” But then he acknowledged they started inquiring in 2017.

“We didn't have all the information” when Obama was president and Biden was VP, Johnson told us. “I mean you start investigating things when things come to light.” He said the “timing of this coincidental,” referring to Biden’s surge in the campaign

Guess why Trump called off his trip to the CDC today?
As he signed the $8.3 billion funding package, Trump contradicts his WH’s explanation about why CDC trip was scrapped. He now says: “We may go - they thought there was a problem with CDC with somebody who had the virus,” but it turned out negative, adding: “I may be going.” https://t.co/EE7WPZCvn6

Raise your hand if you agree that Donald Trump’s plan to cut entitlements is repugnant and unacceptable ✋

Fake news — POTUS was taking about cutting deficits, NOT entitlements. https://t.co/BNkdFoAh5O

#Trump told Fox News he was going to cut entitlements last night. By entitlements, he means medicare & social security like regular people have, not entitlements like his family gets, including the right to shoot elephants & shit on gold toilets.

my favorite Bible story just might be the one where Jesus tells the lepers that he has a hunch leprosy isn't anywhere near as bad as the doctors say and everyone should just go back to work and then he jets off for a long weekend of golf at Galilee-a-Lago
