Pressure Mounts on Pelosi

The Daily Recount

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.

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.

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?

Impeachment Witness Battle \ Dems' Fundraising Fight \ Saudi Scapegoats \ Saudi Arabia's New Friends

The Daily Recount

The impeachment of Donald Trump started with a phone call. Now, as Senate gears up for a trial, Dems are hoping it ends with an email (and the man who sent it). President Obama lends a hand to Elizabeth Warren as the Dem candidates continue to pile on Pete Buttigieg. And a Saudi court has sentenced five people (read: scapegoats) to death in the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
