Trump is charged with inciting the violent insurrection of the U. S Capitol building that led to the deaths of five people. Last month. In a letter to congressman and lead impeachment manager Jamie Raskin, Trump's attorneys dismissed the request for his testimony as a public relations stunt. Raskin had sent a letter to Trump's legal team, arguing that the former president's testimony is needed, given that he's disputed the central allegation that he incited the insurrection. Asking, also warned that a refusal to testify would support a strong adverse inference regarding Trump's actions.

Other bills would require a D D to check claimants against lists of prison inmates to prevent fraud and would establish an office of the climate advocate to help people with claim problems. All of the legislation will not go through committee hearings in the coming weeks.

So it'll be interesting to see how kitchens calls play. Days starting Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Last year was very busy. Because at the last moment in the twenty four hours leading up to the deadline. We saw Jimmy Garoppolo traded from New England to San Francisco j Gye traded from Miami to Philadelphia Dwayne Brown from Houston to Seattle.

That just traded him. Thomas was the longest tenure Bronco and get the Broncos say goodbye to him because really they weren't going to keep his fourteen million dollars salary around next season in my mind. The most surprising move right before the deadline. Came win Detroit traded golden Tate to Philadelphia for a third round pick. So many teams had made so many inquiries to the lions about golden Tate. But they had resisted all overtures for him. But finally, they broke down and dealt Tate to the eagles who for the second straight year made a trade right at the deadline last year Gye this year Tate, as they look to try to keep up with the rest of the NFC east another team in the NFC making.
