President Trump continues to fight impeachment inquiry on social media

WASHINGTON, D.C. (CBS) — House Democrats are ramping up their impeachment inquiry into President Trump as the president continues to dismiss the effort as politically motivated. In front of cameras, the president has been notably silent on the escalating impeachment inquiry, but he’s continued to lash out over social media, tweeting Saturday: “PRESIDENTIAL HARASSMENT.”

Three
house committees are now investigating allegations that the president pressured
Ukraine to investigate political rival Joe Biden and his son Hunter in a July
25th phone call. That call is now at the center of a CIA whistle blower’s
complaint.

The
complaint cites the president’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani as a central
figure in the effort.

”There
is a record of the conversation,” Giuliani said. “If that conversation doesn’t
talk about military aid, military aid was not involved in this situation.”... Read More

Church buys strip club; plans to renovate it into new home

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (WPEC) — A church in suburban West Palm Beach,
Florida is buying a former strip club and will transform it into its new home. For
Pastor Josh Mauney, his prayers and the prayers of the people in his church
have just been answered.

“We’re so excited,” Mauney said. “I believe that
God is opening up some doors that a 20-month old church can’t open by
themselves.”

Newsound Church holds services every Sunday at Wellington High School
and has about 1,000 members, but now they’re buying Double Dee’s Ranch on Southern
Boulevard, turning the former bar and strip club into a church with seating for
600 to 700 people.

“I don’t mind being in a building that was a strip club any
more than I mind somebody walking in our doors that had at one time in their
life been a stripper,” Mauney said.

The church plans to replace the stripper poles with pews and
replace lap dances and lingerie with love for the lord... Read More
