Ah, The Daily Recount: Weekend Edition — proven to cure your Sunday Scaries and get you up-to-speed on the weekend in politics. Today we’re tackling three big questions: Did Iran pose an imminent threat? What can we expect from this impeachment trial? And… did Trump really just say that? Get all your answers in five minutes.
We finally have a timeline for the Senate impeachment trial, but will we have witnesses? When it comes to Iran, the White House reports just aren’t adding up. Plus, turns out money really can buy happiness (if your name is Tom Steyer), and Mike Bloomberg has a gift for the Democratic party.
Those impeachment articles have been sitting on Nancy Pelosi’s desk for three weeks now — sad, lonely, scared — but pressure is rising to turn them over. Today the House voted to limit the president’s war powers. Plus, Trump deals a blow to the climate crisis, and Sarah Sanders needs a refresher on the Constitution.
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.
