Trump's Iran Address \ Congress Briefed on Iran \ Waiting on Pelosi \ And Pelosi Says...

The Daily Recount

The classic Trump adage is back: When in doubt, blame Obama. The president briefed the country on Iran today, while his top advisers briefed members of Congress — leaving one staunch Republican thoroughly unimpressed. Meanwhile, the Senate wants a trial ASAP, and Pelosi’s fed up with all the crap.

New Light on Ukraine Timeline \ Iraq Back on Radar \ Anti-Semitic Attacks on the Rise \ Ivanka File Searcher

The Daily Recount

Ah, nothing like some damning new emails to close out 2019. Turns out the US was withholding aid from Ukraine for longer than we all thought. US airstrikes targeted militias in Iraq this weekend, bringing the country (and a certain Dem candidate) back in the spotlight. Plus, a string of anti-Semitic attacks around Hanukkah points to larger global trends.

Senate Republican Breaks \ Bloomberg's Prison Labor \ Rare Recall of U.S. Ambassador \ Kim Jong-un's Xmas Gift

The Daily Recount

Dems still need a miracle for the Senate to impeach Donald Trump — but they may have just found their first crack. Women prisoners for Bloomberg? The candidate is facing heat over his campaign’s newest hires. Plus, the State Department is recalling the Zambian Ambassador for defending American values abroad. Hm, makes sense.
