U.S. Senate leader McConnell raises possibility of quick impeachment trial


U.S. Senate leader McConnell raises possibility of quick impeachment trial U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell raised the prospect on Tuesday of a short Senate impeachment trial for President Donald Trump in which no witnesses would be called. The scenario of a truncated trial would put McConnell, the top Senate Republican, at odds with Trump, also a Republican, who has been calling for a full trial with witnesses, including former Vice President Joe Biden, on the Senate floor.

AP FACT CHECK: How Trump's Russia claims line up with report


AP FACT CHECK: How Trump's Russia claims line up with report President Donald Trump has railed for years against the FBI's investigation into his campaign, making incendiary — and sometimes easily disprovable — allegations. Although Trump and his supporters have repeatedly insisted that the investigation was built on the back of an uncorroborated dossier, the report categorically states that the dossier was not part of the July 2016 decision to open the investigation.

Dems Think Their Day of Whiplash Is Just Perfect


Dems Think Their Day of Whiplash Is Just Perfect If one day could neatly encapsulate House Democrats’ long, busy, and sometimes messy year, Tuesday, December 10, was close to perfect. At nine o’clock in the morning, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and six of her committee chairs announced articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump. An hour later, Pelosi appeared with 30 of her colleagues to announce they had struck a deal with Trump and his administration on the president’s top legislative priority: a new U.S.-Canada-Mexico trade deal.At the first event, there was grave discussion of Democrats’ solemn duty to uphold the Constitution by charging Trump with high crimes and misdemeanors. The articles Democrats introduced posit that Trump did nothing short of debasing the integrity of the American democratic process—an offense warranting “impeachment and trial, removal from office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust, or profit under the United States.”Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) warned that failing to impeach Trump would unacceptably jeopardize the upcoming 2020 election because Trump is determined to undermine it. “The president's misconduct goes to the heart of whether we can conduct a free and fair election in 2020,” said Schiff. “Ben Franklin said we have a Republic if we can keep it. The president and his men say you can't keep it, and Americans should just get over it.”At the second event, Democratic members wearing big smiles and multi-colored suits crowded around Pelosi, back-slapping and reminiscing about tough negotiations with the Trump White House.Trump’s trade negotiator, Robert Lighthizer, was “remarkable to work with,” said Pelosi. “I think we set a world record for hanging up on each other,” Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal (D-MA) said to laughs. “But at the same time, we knew this was an opportunity we couldn’t let get away from us.”The most significant tensions at the heart of Democrats’ control of the House have not changed since Pelosi got the gavel in January. All year, Democratic leaders have been caught between competing factions of the party: one prioritizing aggressive oversight of the president and another faction pulling them to work with him on shared policy goals. Over and over they have been faced with the question of how could they work on legislation with a president many Democrats—and even more intensely, the party’s base—believe is an existential threat to democracy? The whiplash of the morning of December 10 shoved that balancing act—which had been teetering all year long—to its extreme. And Democrats’ job of continuing to sell their case that they can do two things at once could get challenged by the stark visual of using one hand to effectively shake with the president on a hugely significant policy item, while using the other to formally set in motion his removal from office.Pelosi, speaking to reporters at the trade-centric, jovial press conference, tried her hardest to throw up a barrier in the middle of Democrats’ split-screen morning, saying she wouldn’t take questions even sniffing around the topic of the first event—where questions were not answered. Asked if it was a coincidence that these two things converged on the same day, Pelosi responded it wasn’t. “No,” she said. “It’s just that when we get to the end of a session, there have to be decisions made.”But even Democratic lawmakers found themselves a bit taken aback by the day’s blunt symbolism. If he’d been told in January that articles of impeachment and a trade deal would emerge on the same day, said freshman Rep. Dean Phillips (D-MN), “I would have said you were out of your mind.”Indeed, those observing Tuesday morning’s events from the party’s left flank argued that it was, in fact, crazy to position Trump as both a danger to the republic and a negotiating partner within minutes of each other.“So, can someone explain to me why Dems appear about to sign on to Trump's USMCA trade deal?” tweeted New York Times columnist and economist Paul Krugman. “It's basically no change from NAFTA as is, but Trump will claim it as a triumph. Why give him that?”But few elected Democrats were willing to go there. A broad swath of lawmakers—from the Speaker down to liberal and moderate lawmakers alike—rejected the idea that there was any kind of inconsistency or cognitive dissonance in their party’s public display on Tuesday.“Nobody should be surprised,” said Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT), a member of the Intelligence panel who appeared onstage with Pelosi to unveil the USMCA deal. “We've been saying for Číst dále >>> Přeložit do en

Senator Bernie Sanders had 13% and Senator Elizabeth Warren had 12%. Michael Bloomberg received 4%, while Pete Buttigieg, Senator Amy Klobuchar, Tom Steyer and Andrew Yang all received 2%. No other candidate obtained more than 1%. Bloomberg is the founder and majority owner of Bloomberg LP, the parent company of Bloomberg News.Biden has long been favored among African-American voters. In South Carolina, which has a majority black Democratic electorate, Biden had 33% support of all voters, followed by Warren with 13% and Sanders with 11% in a November Quinnipiac poll of the state.Among all Democratic and Democratic-leaning voters, Biden led with 29% followed by Sanders with 17%, Warren with 15%, Buttigieg with 9%, Bloomberg with 5% and Yang with 4%. Klobuchar was supported by 3% of voters and Tulsi Gabbard 2%, all other candidates received 1% or less.The poll conducted Dec. 4-9 had a margin of error of 3.8 percentage points.Andrew Yang Qualifies for Los Angeles Debate (4:27 p.m.)Entrepreneur Andrew Yang on Tuesday became the seventh candidate to qualify for the Democratic debate in Los Angeles on Dec. 19.Yang will join Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar and Tom Steyer. Tulsi Gabbard has met the donor threshold but lacks one national or state poll to qualify. She said Tuesday she would skip the debate even if she qualifies.Yang made the cut thanks to a 4% score in a Quinnipiac University national poll released Tuesday. To qualify for the sixth Democratic debate, candidates must receive 4% in four national polls approved by the Democratic National Committee or 6% in two polls from early voting states and have received donations from 200,000 individuals. Candidates have until Thursday night to qualify.The presence on stage of Yang, who is Asian-American, means the debate will no longer have an all white slate of candidates. Cory Booker, who is African American, and Julian Castro, who is Hispanic, have both met the donor threshold but haven’t met the polling criteria, have complained about the lack of diversity among candidates on the stage. -- Emma KineryBloomberg’s Ad Spending Climbs to $100 Million (3:41 p.m.)Michael Bloomberg has spent $100 million on television and digital ads since launching his presidential campaign on Nov. 24.The former New York City mayor has bought more political commercials than the four top-polling candidates combined. Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have collectively spent $60.3 million on advertising.The billionaire Tom Steyer is the second biggest spender at $66 million. President Donald Trump, who doesn’t face a serious primary opponent, has spent about $34 million so far.Bloomberg’s latest television ad buy, which totals $36.1 million, is for a 13-day period ending Dec. 22, according to data from Advertising Analytics. He set a record in buying $33 million worth spots to air in a single week, eclipsing the previous mark of $24.9 million that former President Barack Obama’s campaign set in the last week of the 2012 campaign.Bloomberg is running ads nationally and in 100 local markets across more than 30 states and the District of Columbia, with the most spending so far in the Los Angeles, New York City and Houston markets, data show. He’s trying the untested strategy of skipping the first four voting states and focusing on California, Texas and the other delegate-rich states that vote in March.Bloomberg is the founder and majority owner of Bloomberg LP, the parent company of Bloomberg News. -- Bill AllisonGabbard to Sit Out Debate Even If She Qualifies (11:46 a.m.)Tulsi Gabbard, who is one poll short of qualifying for the Dec. 19 Democratic debate, said she’ll skip it even if she makes the cut at 11:59 p.m. on Thursday.“For a number of reasons, I have decided not to attend the December 19th ‘debate’ — regardless of whether or not there are qualifying polls,” the Hawaii congresswoman tweeted late Monday. “I instead choose to spend that precious time directly meeting with and hearing from the people of New Hampshire and South Carolina.”Gabbard also threatened to boycott a debate in October, accusing the Democratic National Committee of “rigging” the primaries, but showed up anyway.Two other candidates who haven’t quali Číst dále >>> Přeložit do en

15 Million Iranian Bank Accounts Hacked During Protests


15 Million Iranian Bank Accounts Hacked During Protests Following massive anti-government protests in Iran in November, during which demonstrators set fire to banks across the country, the details of 15 million Iranian debit cards were published online, exposing the account information of almost one-fifth of Iran's population."This is the largest financial scam in Iran’s history," conservative Iranian outlet Aftab News reported. "Millions of Iranians are worried to find their names among the list of hacked accounts."The affected banks had been sanctioned by the U.S. in 2018 over allegations they transferred money for the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps in violation of international law. The elite security force was labelled a terrorist organization by the U.S. in April.Iranian information and telecommunications minister Mohammad Jahromi denied the breach was the result of a hack. However, cyber experts told the New York Times the attack was likely carried out by a state or state-sponsored organization.The attack revealed a "high technological capability, which is usually at the hand of state intelligence services," said Boaz Dolev, chief executive officer of cybersecurity company ClearSky.The protests, initially set off by increases in the price of fuel, were the "the worst political crisis the regime has faced in its 40 years," according to State Department Iran Envoy Brian Hook. Hook also said the regime may have killed up to 1,000 people in response to the protests, although he did not cite evidence for the figure.Human rights groups have estimated the total number of dead at between 180 to 450. Efforts to verify the number of dead were hampered by the regime's near-total internet blackout imposed during the protests.In one incident reported by the Times, members of the IRGC massacred up to 100 protesters in a marsh in the southern city of Mahshahr.
