TODAY'S HEADLINES:

ecretary of State Mike Pompeo reject Democrats demands for State Dept. officials’ testimony in impeachment depositions scheduled for this week.

Meanwhile, billionaire Tom Steyer launches a $3 million pro-impeachment ad campaign that will target vulnerable Republican Senators running for reelection in 2020. 

And lastly, the New York Times reports that Trump has suggested shooting migrants in the legs and filling a moat with snakes or alligators to help stop immigration.

And our QUICKER QUICKIES HEADLINES:

Donald Trump and the Republican National Committee raised a massive $125 million in the third quarter. For perspective; over the equivalent period in 2011, President Obama raised nearly $70 million for his re-election campaign. 

Politico reports that House investigators are looking into an allegation that groups — including at least one foreign government — tried to ingratiate themselves to President Trump by booking rooms at his hotels but never staying in them.

Three House committee chairmen sent a letter addressed to Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan on the grounds that the Secretary of State Mike Pompeo “now appears to have an obvious conflict of interest,” the Wall Street Journal reports.

Pompeo’s participation in the call between President Trump and the Ukrainian president, the lawmakers wrote, renders him a witness in the congressional impeachment inquiry, and as a result, “he should not be making any decisions regarding witness testimony or document production in order to protect himself or the president.

And finally, Rudy Giuliani wants to sue congress. That’s right, Trump’s bumbling lawyer told Fox News’ Laura Ingraham that he wants to bring a lawsuit against House Democrats for investigating the president in the wake of revelations involving Trump's interactions with Ukraine. 

Ingraham called Giuliani’s proposal “novel” before ending Rudy’s legal fantasy when she reminded the former Associate Attorney General that members of Congress have immunity for anything they say on the floor.
