The announcement that former independent counsel Ken Starr is joining President Donald Trump's impeachment defense team surprised many on Friday, but one person, apparently, had an especially notable reaction to the news.

The great "what if" about the Clinton Impeachment will always be what Monica Lewinsky might have said had she been called as a witness.

Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, released a statement on Thursday to clarify her stance on President Trump's upcoming impeachment trial and claimed her past comments have been taken out of context and misunderstood. 

The Mittens Squad (Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski) are in a bind.

They would love to vote to convict Trump, if only for spite, but the reality is by the time the trial concludes the Republicans won't be able to convict--not if they want to have a credible candidate come November (there is literally no one ramping up in the wings waiting for Trump to get booted out, and even Mike Pence is not positioned to run in November). By the time the trial concludes it will be very nearly Super Tuesday. There will be no chance to run a field of candidates through a proper primary contest for the GOP. Donald Trump is the GOP candidate for 2020, or no one is.

Which means Susan Collins is looking for a plausible way to straddle the line and miraculously conclude that Trump did nothing impeachable at the end, after having weighed all the evidence.

On Thursday's broadcast of the Fox Business Network's "Lou Dobbs Tonight," White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham stated that she sometimes wonders | Clips On Thursday's broadcast of the Fox Business Network's "Lou Dobbs Tonight," White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham stated that she sometimes wonders if the timing of the delivery of the articles of impeachment to the Senate was designed to help one of the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates by forcing some of the senators running for president to return to D.C. for the Senate trial.

Nancy Pelosi has maneuvered a situation where impeachment MUST fail, but that the trial MUST tie up Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren through the crucial early primaries.

The end game is simple: generate enough negative attention on President Trump while clearing Joe Biden's path to the nomination. The Establishmentarian wing of the Democratic Party is determined to put Joe Biden in the Oval Office. To do that, they are willing to break the power of the Presidency.

By Democrats' standards, Obama ought to have been impeached for the seven times the GAO found his administration violated federal law.

The Democrats aren't concerned with violations of the law, or even abuses of Presidential power.

Their intent is to break the Presidential power of Donald Trump. That's their only goal, and to hell with the consequences.

Like the many other similarly foolish western nations, China seeks only one path out of this fiscal death spiral, one that will likely spell doom and/or revolution in many countries soon: More debt.

Who pays when the tab comes due?

The central banker or politician who can honestly answer that question seems nowhere to be found.

The Constitution requires that impeachable offense be one of egregious error. The House Democrats are advancing an impeachment case that arguably contains no error at all, let alone egregious error. In law, in logic, and in accordance with the strictures of the Constitution, they have no case.

Once the House managers finish presenting their impeachment case against Donald Trump, the Senate should immediately dismiss the articles of impeachment for failing to state an actual case for impeachment.

War against Iran would be the wrong war at the wrong time against the wrong enemy in the wrong place for the wrong reasons. According to some conservatives, saying that makes me a leftist. Or a Muslim. Or a Nazi. Or all of them. It’s heresy. If we keep our eye on the big picture …

There is no war with Iran
