  1. @SethAbramson · 1m If you want to know how full-on INSANE these 53-47 votes opposing amendments are, imagine a prosecutor at a trial saying, "Your Honor, we move for the admission of {checks notes} EVIDENCE..." and then losing that motion, then asking again, losing again, asking again, losing again ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Elizabeth Warren @SenWarren · 8m So here’s where we are: the Senate GOP won’t subpoena documents from the White House – and won’t subpoena documents from the State Department. If they truly believe in a fair impeachment trial, why are they hiding evidence?

  4. Trump confirms plans to expand travel ban - ".....The president's comments confirm an Associated Press report from earlier this month. Multiple media outlets reported that seven countries are being considered to be covered by the travel ban, including Belarus, Burma, Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan, Nigeria, Sudan and Tanzania. Any additions or alterations to the travel ban would draw immediate legal challenges. Trump's openness to expand one of his most controversial policies at the outset of an election year signals that he will seek to rev up his base of supporters and double down on the isolationist ideas that he rode to the White House in 2016........ https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/479152-trump-confirms-plans-to-expand-travel-ban
  5. @NPR · 7m Hackers linked to Iran are probing American companies for vulnerabilities, researchers and U.S. officials say — suggesting the next phase of hostilities will likely play out in cyberspace.
  6. @SethAbramson · 2h Schiff is so good. Using this time to basically make an opening statement is genius. It's what I'd do and what any seasoned litigator would do. There's no point wasting time debating a "rules" question that McConnell has already fully cooked. Schiff is hitting the ground running. ============================================= Walter Shaub @waltshaub Cipollone, whose conduct in withholding records and testimony may be unprecedented, has the audacity to complain that Schiff wouldn't give him documents. Then, he says Schiff is the hypocrite. This gas lighting is too much to take. 1:42 PM · Jan 21, 2020

  9. The New York Times Endorses Elizabeth Warren And Amy Klobuchar The newspaper shocked with two notable endorsements just weeks before the Iowa caucus, the first Democratic primary vote. he New York Times editorial board endorsed Sens. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) and Amy Klobuchar (Minn.) in the race for the Democratic presidential primary after interviewing the top nine contenders on issues that are most important to voters in this heated election year. It was a perplexing endorsement, since the two senators are running on significantly divergent platforms. Warren is one of the most progressive candidates in the race, while Klobuchar is a moderate........ “Both the radical and the realist models warrant serious consideration. If there were ever a time to be open to new ideas, it is now. If there were ever a time to seek stability, now is it,” the Times’ Editorial Board wrote on Sunday night. “That’s why we’re endorsing the most effective advocates for each approach.” ....... https://www.huffpost.com/entry/new-york-times-endorses-warren-klobuchar_n_5e221f23c5b673621f760144?ncid=tweetlnkushpmg00000067
  10. McConnell lays out rules for Trump's Senate trial, allowing for vote on witnesses, documents Opening arguments begin Wednesday on a compressed timeline. https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry/new-details-emerge-about-trump-s-senate-trial-democrats-protest-n1118801?cid=sm_npd_nn_tw_np Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) quickly pushed back and vowed to force votes on amendments. “Sen. McConnell’s resolution is nothing short of a national disgrace,” Schumer said in a statement Monday afternoon........ argues that forcing House managers to cram their opening arguments into a two-day window will force them to present on the Senate floor well into the evening and possibly past midnight. The House managers will be allowed to begin their arguments 1 p.m. Wednesday. “McConnell’s resolution stipulates that key facts be delivered in the wee hours of the night simply because he doesn’t want the American people to hear them,” Schumer said. If the Senate votes at the end of phase one against subpoenaing witnesses, then it will not be possible to consider additional motions on specific witnesses, according to McConnell’s resolution. The Senate will vote on the resolution Tuesday...... https://thehill.com/homenews/senate/479071-house-managers-trump-team-will-have-24-hours-over-two-days-to-make-arguments

  13. Devin Nunes’ Ukraine lies are a betrayal. Voters in his district deserve better By The Sacramento Bee Editorial Board https://www.sacbee.com/opinion/editorials/article239465588.html
  14. OP from 'The Sacramento Bee'........... "Devin Nunes’ Ukraine lies are a betrayal. Voters in his district deserve better.... Read more here: https://www.sacbee.com/opinion/editorials/article239465588.html#storylink=cpy "..........For months, Nunes has acted as Trump’s attack dog, defending the president from accusations that he pressured Ukraine to investigate Biden. Nunes sat in House Intelligence Committee meetings and derided the impeachment proceedings against Trump as a “hoax.” Yet he was sitting on a ticking time bomb the entire time. The newly-released texts prove texts prove that Nunes’ staff also engaged in secret efforts to damage Biden. Nunes knew the Ukraine allegations were true because his office was involved in the same plot. But he used his position in Congress as a platform to spread lies and mislead the public. During an interview with Fox News last year, Nunes denied any memory of a phone conversation with Parnas. Now that evidence has proven that Parnas spoke the truth, Nunes has backtracked. During a Fox News appearance on Friday, he admitted to a call with Parnas but sought to downplay its significance........ Devin Nunes has betrayed the truth, betrayed the trust of voters and, quite possibly, betrayed our country. We don’t know exactly where this new evidence will lead, or what fate has in store for Nunes, but we kw o this: The people of California’s 22nd congressional district deserve better."

  17. okay, don't see on online schedule......... "...... Duff (Ivan Dixon) is an Alabama railroad worker who falls in love with a schoolteacher, Josie (Abbey Lincoln). The couple encounter racism and their relationship is tested by Duff's family dysfunction: he has an absent dad and neglects his own son from a previous relationship. This moving film has the boldness and simplicity of a real master. ....... The performances are so fresh and natural – yet so subtle and delicately judged. The direction is superb in its control and the cinematography creates a gripping docu-realist vision. Why has this passionate and involving love story been relatively overlooked? ........ https://www.theguardian.com/film/2013/sep/26/nothing-but-a-man-review
  18. SAG Awards 2020: The Complete Winners List “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” “The Irishman” and “Bombshell” received the most film nods, while “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” led on the TV front. https://www.huffpost.com/entry/screen-actors-guild-awards-winners-2020_n_5e20c42dc5b6321176103d6b?ncid=tweetlnkushpmg00000067&guccounter=1&guce_referrer=aHR0cHM6Ly90LmNvL0IzOEhreklOUDk_YW1wPTE&guce_referrer_sig=AQAAAFuBraPI88vkL_Q6HfN_n7-4vXHsMsM5b7IYpdXlhs7Zejgol4DIFHZLrisSWkkLieu1wzAeyuIOHfxx_SGgmM-WNRP1X9em4FN8MQGqMMtuFkscSQSCVLvu-7PDK-lU1VyxsaNqtTOlpuHskqPLrMJAQbGnuclNWYJage-rzIl2
  19. or T's apparent 'sympathy' towards a Sanders nomination???? ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump · Jan 17 They are rigging the election again against Bernie Sanders, just like last time, only even more obviously. They are bringing him out of so important Iowa in order that, as a Senator, he sit through the Impeachment Hoax Trial. Crazy Nancy thereby gives the strong edge to Sleepy..... ..Joe Biden, and Bernie is shut out again. Very unfair, but that’s the way the Democrats play the game. Anyway, it’s a lot of fun to watch!
  20. House Democrats may call new impeachment witnesses if Senate doesn't ...............But it’s likely to gain favor with committee leaders, he said, if Senate Republicans deny new and willing witnesses a voice. “They have their eye on it,” Johnson said. Rep. Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.), chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, which had some jurisdiction over Trump's impeachment, stopped just short of saying Democrats would summon relevant witnesses if the Senate does not. But he left the door wide open to doing so, vowing that Democrats will charge ahead with their Ukrainian investigation “if we're feeling that we're being played and that they're not being forthcoming with the truth.”....... https://thehill.com/homenews/house/478843-house-democrats-may-call-new-impeachment-witnesses-if-senate-doesnt
