Last evening, the Associated Press reported the day’s activities by Democratic congressmen investigating the president’s actions in the Ukraine and the Trump administration’s, especially Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s, pushback.
Here is the final Intelligencer paragraph in today's significantly-shortened version of that AP story:
In a Tuesday evening tweet, Trump cast the impeachment inquiry as a coup "intended to take away the Power of the People, their VOTE, their Freedoms, their Second Amendment, Religion, Military, Border Wall, and their God-given rights as a Citizen of The United States of America!" In fact, a coup is usually defined as a sudden, violent and illegal seizure of government power.
The Intelligencer stops there even though the AP paragraph is not finished. Here is next sentence in that paragraph:
The impeachment process is laid out in the U.S. Constitution.
The AP story continues for another 1,000 words. Unfortunately for readers interested in national news, space in the front section was needed for two stories each from Ogden’s Steubenville and Weirton papers.
