Today is Dec 4, and here are the stories I am following.
1-Kamala Harris’ 2020 exit leaves potentially all-white debate
Fox News reports that the sudden exit of Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., from the 2020 presidential campaign is causing a panic among some within the Democratic Party over the remaining candidates who are participating in the upcoming debate, who are all white.
DML: What’s the panic? Are white people not capable of leading? Sounds terribly racist if you ask me.
2-Trump impeachment hearings to begin with scholars
The Democratic-controlled House Judiciary Committee will move to the forefront of President Trump’s impeachment inquiry Wednesday morning with a hearing featuring four legal scholars, but no fact witnesses.
In the same pillared room that hosted last month’s House Intelligence Committee hearings, lawmakers will hear from Stanford law professor Pamela Karlan, Harvard law professor and Bloomberg columnist Noah Feldman, University of North Carolina law professor Michael Gerhardt, and George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley. All are Democrat witnesses except for Turley — a point that did not escape the president Tuesday evening as he noted a lack of fairness in the process.
“They get three constitutional lawyers … and we get one,” Trump said during a bilateral meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in London. “That’s not sounding too good, and that’s the way it is. We don’t get a lawyer, we don’t get any witnesses — we want Biden, we want the son Hunter, where’s Hunter? We want Schiff. We want to interview these people. Well, they said no. We can’t do it.”
The next phase in the impeachment inquiry of Trump comes as the Democrat-led House Intelligence Committee late Tuesday voted to adopt and issue its scathing report on the findings from the panel’s investigation, accusing the president of misusing his office to seek foreign help in the 2020 presidential race. The 13-9 party-line vote on the 300-page report was a necessary step before the document could be transferred to the House Judiciary Committee.
3-More women accuse Epstein of sex abuse
Nine more women came forward Tuesday in a lawsuit that claims that they were sexually abused by convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, with one accuser saying she was just 13 when the abuse began.
The lawsuit, filed in New York state court in Manhattan on Tuesday, alleges incidents of sexual abuse between 1985 and 2007. The accusers are listed as Jane Doe I through Jane Doe IX and their claim is against Darren Indyke and Richard Kahn, the executors of Epstein’s estate, which is valued at $577 million.
DML: Some people are better off dead.
4- Several NATO leaders seem to have been caught gossiping about President Trump on a hot mic
During a reception at Buckingham Palace, Prime Minister Boris Johnson asked French President Emmanuel Macron: “Is that why you were late?” Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said: “He was late because he takes a 40-minute press conference off the top.” That appeared to refer to a long, unscheduled Q&A by Trump, who wasn’t mentioned by name. Footage was posted online by Canada’s CBC and has been viewed more than 5 million times.
DML: Could this be because Trump is the only NATO head worth listening to for 40 minutes?
5-Willie Nelson has quit weed.
The country icon told KSAT TV, “I have abused my lungs quite a bit in the past, so breathing is a little more difficult these days and I have to be careful.” The 86-year-old added, “I don’t smoke anymore — I take better care of myself.”
