  • President Donald Trump has sent a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi saying he has accepted her invitation to deliver the State of the Union in the House chamber on Jan. 29. Here is the text of that letter: Dear Madam Speaker: Thank you for your letter of January 3, 2019, sent to me long after the Shutdown began, inviting me to address the Nation on January 29th as to the State of the Union. As you know, I had already accepted your kind invitation, however, I then received another letter from you dated January 16, 2019, wherein you expressed concerns regarding security during the State of the Union Address due to the Shutdown. Even prior to asking, I was contacted by the Department of Homeland Security and the United States Secret Service to explain that there would be absolutely no problem regarding security with respect to the event. They have since confirmed this publicly. Accordingly, there are no security concerns regarding the State of the Union Address. Therefore, I will be honoring your invitation, and fulfilling my Constitutional duty, to deliver important information to the people and Congress of the United States of America regarding the State of our Union. I look forward to seeing you on the evening on January 29th in the Chamber of the House of Representatives. It would be so very sad for our Country if the State of the Union were not delivered on time, on schedule, and very importantly, on location! Sincerely, Donald J. Trump
  • An Illinois man is being sought on allegations that he let an 11-year-old girl drive herself and another child to school. Police officials in Round Lake Park have obtained child endangerment warrants for Khafilu M. Oshodi, 31, of Round Lake, the Lake County News-Sun reported. Oshodi is also accused of driving with a suspended license. Round Lake Park police Chief George Filenko told the News-Sun Monday that employees at John J. Murphy Elementary School saw the girl, whose relationship to Oshodi was not disclosed, drive up into the student drop-off area the morning of Jan. 9. The witnesses said the girl got out of the driver’s seat and, along with a 9-year-old girl who was a backseat passenger, went into the school.  Oshodi then moved into the driver’s seat and drove away, the witnesses said.  >> Read more trending news Filenko told the newspaper that the misdemeanor charges belie the seriousness of what the witnesses described.  “It’s a circle drive drop-off and there were many staff, parents and students in the area,” Filenko said. “Drop-off and pickup are the busiest times of the school day. If the child loses control, we’ve got disastrous results.” Both girls, who are related to Oshodi, are safe in the custody of other relatives, the chief told the News-Sun. During the investigation into the incident, detectives learned that the rental car the girl drove to school that day was subsequently reported stolen on Jan. 14, Filenko said.  Officers have gone to Oshodi’s last known address and tried to contact him through relatives, with no success, the newspaper reported. He remained free Wednesday morning.  Lake County court records show Oshodi was arrested in June 2018 for speeding, driving on a suspended license and driving without insurance. 
  • Update 12:30 p.m. ET Jan. 23, 2019: President Donald Trump has sent a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi saying that he is accepting her invitation to deliver the State of the Union Speech on Tuesday, Jan. 29. Pelosi, as of midday Wednesday, has not responded to Trump’s letter. Original story: President Donald Trump plans to move forward with a State of the Union address next week at the nation’s Capitol. Unless it’s somewhere else. >> Read more trending news Several media outlets are reporting that Trump is ready to disregard House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s request last week that he delay the annual speech because of the government shutdown. >> Government shutdown: Pelosi asks Trump to postpone State of the Union address  NPR is reporting that plans are moving forward for Trump to give the address before a joint session of Congress next Tuesday, as was originally scheduled. On Sunday, the White House sent a letter to the House sergeant-at-Aarms requesting a walk-through of the House in advance of the speech. Pelosi denied the request for a walk-through last week as she asked Trump to reschedule his speech until the government is reopened. Trump jumped into the tug-a-war this Sunday via Twitter, telling Pelosi he has options on when and where to give the speech but reminded her she had extended an invitation and he had accepted it. 'Nancy, I am still thinking about the State of the Union speech, there are so many options - including doing it as per your written offer (made during the Shutdown, security is no problem), and my written acceptance. While a contract is a contract, I'll get back to you soon!'  >> State of the Union 2019: What day, what time, who will be there? Can Pelosi disinvite Trump? Yes, in a way. The invitation to address a joint session of Congress is technically a House resolution that sets aside a day and time for the president to come to the Capitol and address a joint session of Congress. A joint session of Congress means both the members of the House of Representatives and the members of the Senate are together in one chamber to hear a speaker. Because the speech involves a joint session, both the House and the Senate must pass resolutions to OK the joint session. The passing of the resolutions, in essence, constitutes an invitation from both the speaker of the House and the Senate majority leader for the president to appear before both chambers of Congress. So far, neither the House nor the Senate has passed such a resolution that invites the president to give the State of the Union address on Jan. 29. Pelosi controls when a vote comes to the House floor. Pelosi could hold back the vote on the resolution to create a day and time for the president to speak, and prevent him from addressing House members. Can Pelosi keep the president from coming to the House next Tuesday? No, while there are restrictions on who can walk on the floor, the restrictions don’t apply to the president of the United States. However, who can speak from the floor is a different matter. While the president can speak from the floor of the House, he could not speak from the dais in the House unless a session is called to order. The speaker is the person who calls the chamber to order. The president could be removed from the House floor if he were to begin speaking without Pelosi calling the session in order. According to some media sources, the White House is considering moving the speech outside of Washington, D.C., perhaps to somewhere along the southern border. The Washington Post is reporting that Trump has prepared two State of the Union speeches. One would be for a traditional delivery in the House to a joint session of Congress. The other would be for a location outside of Washington in a more political rally-type gathering.  
  • Police arrested a 36-year-old nurse Wednesday on suspicion of sexual assault and abuse of a vulnerable adult after a woman who had been incapacitated for years gave birth to a child last month. >> Read more trending news Police Chief Jeri Williams said Nathan Sutherland was being booked into Maricopa County Jail on Wednesday.  Williams said Sutherland was caring for the victim as a licensed practical nurse at Hacienda HealthCare before the victim gave birth to a boy on Dec. 29. >> Police investigating after Arizona woman in vegetative state gives birth “Our information was that he was employed and did work at that facility since about 2011,” Sgt. Tommy Thompson told reporters Wednesday at a news conference. Williams said Sutherland was arrested after police tested a DNA sample taken from him by court order. Police earlier said they were collecting DNA from all male employees at Hacienda HealthCare, a long-term care facility. The 29-year-old victim has been incapacitated since the age of 3, according to The Associated Press. Thompson said earlier this month that she was “unable to move, she was unable to communicate.” However, in a statement released to KNXV-TV on Tuesday, her family’s attorney disputed reports that she was in a coma.  'She has significant intellectual disabilities as a result of seizures very early in her childhood,' the statement said. 'The important thing is that she is a beloved daughter, albeit with significant intellectual disabilities. She has feelings, likes to be read to, enjoys soft music and is capable of responding to people she is familiar with, especially family.” >> Shock, panic heard in 911 call after woman in vegetative state at Arizona facility gives birth Employees at Hacienda said they had no idea she was pregnant before she gave birth on Dec. 29.  Thompson said Tuesday that the baby was in good condition, despite the circumstances surrounding his birth. “I would just say that we can’t always choose how we came into this life, but we can choose as a community to love this child,” Thompson said. The Associated Press contributed to this report.
  • With no resolution of an over month-long partial government shutdown that has blocked paychecks for over 800,000 federal workers, Democratic leaders in the House said on Wednesday that they would not sign off on the scheduled State of the Union Address by President Donald Trump next Tuesday, unless shuttered federal agencies are re-opened before the original scheduled date for the speech, January 29. “Unless the government is re-opened, it is highly unlikely the State of the Union will take place on the floor of the House,” said Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), the head of the House Democratic Caucus. The comments of Jeffries came just after a closed door meeting of House Democrats, in which Speaker Nancy Pelosi urged rank-in-file Democrats to stick together on the shutdown, as Democrats continue to argue that no negotiations should take place on funding border security until the government has been funded. In private caucus meeting, Pelosi urged her caucus to stay united and stick with the plan, referring to reopen government first before border security talks, per sources. She emphasized to caucus that they are more powerful when they are united, not when they are freelancing. — Manu Raju (@mkraju) January 23, 2019 While Democrats want the government to open first, Republicans, and the President, say the opposite should take place – that negotiations on border security should go first, before the partial government shutdown is ended. GOP leaders scoffed at the idea that the State of the Union should be postponed simply because of the funding dispute, which began before Christmas. “It doesn’t matter what crisis America had in the past, we were able to still have a State of the Union,” said Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), the House Republican leader. House GOP leaders argued that Democrats were at fault for the partial shutdown – which has now stretched for 33 days – as they demanded that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi offer a plan for extra border security measures. Not one time has Nancy Pelosi come forward with an alternative,” said Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA), the second-ranking Republican in the House. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says the State of the Union address should be held 'in the House chamber just as it has done for generations before us' https://t.co/No7mzAhmGm pic.twitter.com/FYc5xsjodp — This Week (@ThisWeekABC) January 23, 2019 While the House on Wednesday was ready to approve more funding bills from Democrats to fully fund the government, most eyes were still on the Senate, where leaders set two votes for Thursday – one on a GOP plan that mirrored the President’s immigration proposal set forth last weekend, and a second plan from Democrats which would fund the government until February 8. The White House has already threatened to veto that Democratic plan; officials on Wednesday morning issued a letter in which they said President Trump would sign the GOP proposal. But Republicans would need the votes of seven Democrats to get 60 votes to proceed to that bill; for now, that seems unlikely.
