“One way or another, Nancy Pelosi will go down in history. Let’s hope she doesn’t take America with her,” Michael Goodwin writes in the New York Post.
Speaker Pelosi’s decision to go all in on impeachment “is a historic mistake, one that could tear America apart. Based on the evidence the House has made public, impeaching Trump is a meritless, reckless assault on democracy.”
Goodwin explains that “[Pelosi’s] real problem is that she doesn’t have the goods to justify impeachment under any process. And she won’t, no matter how many witnesses emerge from the bureaucracy to say they were unhappy with the Ukraine call or didn’t agree with Trump’s choices. Policy disagreements and murky arguments won’t lead to a public consensus for removing an elected president.”
“The Trump administration has unveiled a website aimed at helping millions of Americans with substance abuse issues learn about and locate treatment options,” Zeke Miller reports for The Associated Press. The new website, called FindTreatment.gov, “is the latest development in the administration’s effort to address the nation’s opioid crisis.”
“Last weekend the Washington Post changed an appalling headline after readers expressed their disappointment. But the paper’s bizarre obituary for terrorist Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi may still need a rewrite,” James Freeman writes in The Wall Street Journal. The first paragraph of their story about the dead ISIS leader still stunningly portrays Baghdadi as an “austere religious scholar.”
In The Arizona Republic, Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ) writes that she is ready to vote yes on President Trump’s updated NAFTA deal, the United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement—but can’t do so until House Democrats finally agree to let the bill come to a vote. “It’s not hard to see how much Arizona [and other American] communities, farmers, ranchers, manufacturers and business owners stand to gain from Congress finalizing the USMCA.”
In Fox Business, Acting Administrator of the Small Business Administration (SBA) Chris Pilkerton writes that President Trump and the SBA are proud “to partner with makerspaces across the country . . . by offering budding entrepreneurs and those looking to enter the workforce with a means to achieve success for themselves, their families and their surrounding communities.”
