Eric Ciaramella, the alleged whistleblower of Donald Trump’s Ukraine phone call, was mentioned in Ambassador William Taylor’s testimony. The testimony occurred on October 22, while the RealClearInvestigations article on Eric Ciaramella that was widely circulated by Republican figures was published on October 30. The transcript of the testimony, which occurred behind closed doors, was released Wednesday as part of the Democratic Party’s effort to make the impeachment inquiry more transparent.

House Representative Adam Schiff recently appeared on live television to read the transcript of the phone call between Trump and the president of Ukraine. Instead of reading the transcript word for word, he added what he thinks Trump would have said if he were trying to secure an election. Later on, Schiff claimed it was a parody; however, he presented legitimately at the time of his broadcast appearance.
Elizabeth Warren undoubtedly swept the floor with other the other candidates in the first night of the Democratic Primary Debates. Warren, a past Law School Professor at Rutgers and Senator from Massachusetts, brought out a shimmering light of progressivism. In a cast of Spanish-speaking and buzzword-feeding postulants grasping at straws, Warren held her own. The Congresswoman stuck to her campaign promises in a clear and concise tone.
In the summer of 2016, Ohio legalized medical marijuana, allowing doctors to prescribe marijuana for a wide range of health issues. Michigan would go on to legalize recreational marijuana in 2018. Illinois will be the eleventh state to legalize recreational marijuana when new legislation takes effect on January 1st, 2020. This means that two of Indiana’s neighbors have legalized marijuana for recreational uses, with a third legalizing marijuana for medical purposes. In Indiana, bills were brought forward to decriminalize or legalize marijuana for either medical or recreational purposes. However, these bills only saw their first readings, with none being brought to the floor for an actual vote.
On Saturday, President Trump created a new controversy when he tweeted that it was a “no brainer” to have an amendment that would ban the burning of the American flag.
All in for Senator Steve Daines as he proposes an Amendment for a strong BAN on burning our American Flag. A no brainer!

However, the situation got heated when conservative activist Candace Owens tweeted that she believed flag burning warrants a loss of citizenship.
If I were President, the punishment for burning the U.S flag would be the renunciation of citizenship.
No jail time, no fine— simply one year to liquidate your assets and get the hell out of our country.
In exchange, we’d extend citizenship to a hardworking LEGAL immigrant.
