Here's How Republicans Are Trying to Distance Trump From Rudy
Photo Illustration by Kelly Caminero/The Daily Beast/ReutersHouse Republicans have a big, Rudy Giuliani-shaped problem. 

President Trump's personal attorney has spent the past few months repeating his various Ukraine conspiracy theories to anyone who'll listen, and witnesses say he was pressing Ukrainian officials for a quid pro quo. If you're in the business of defending the president from impeachment, that's a problem, and the only way to deal with it is to try to put some distance between Trump and his own lawyer. It's not an easy task, so how are Republicans going about it?

Fox News Anchor Bret Baier: Rather Than Question ‘Powerful' Fiona Hill, GOP ‘Just Gave Speeches'
While Fox News' opinion hosts and commentators push the narrative that this week's dramatic impeachment hearings and its damning revelations are somehow good news for President Donald Trump, the network's news division continues to concede to Fox viewers that the testimony has been, in fact, quite damaging.

Julián Castro: Gordon Sondland's Testimony Is "Nail in the Coffin" of Trump's Defense
During Wednesday's impeachment hearing, U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland told lawmakers that he was ordered by Trump to pressure the Ukrainian government to investigate Joe Biden and his son Hunter. Sondland also acknowledged there was a quid pro quo tying U.S. military aid to investigations, and said that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Vice President Mike Pence were aware of the Ukraine pressure campaign. Democratic presidential candidate Julián Castro joins us to discuss these latest developments in the impeachment inquiry, which he describes as "blockbuster testimony" that could serve as "a nail in the coffin" of Trump's defense. Castro was excluded from the Democratic presidential debate Wednesday because his campaign did not meet polling thresholds recently established by the Democratic National Committee.
