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.

This Year in Bullshit

This Week in Bullshit

Forget about This Week in Bullshit. Capitol Hill’s given us enough material this year to serve you up something special. That’s why we at The Recount are breaking format to survey a bleak year in this foul habitat, filled with henchmen and stooges talkin' outta their hat, all to get a pat on the back from a would-be autocrat. Without further ado, here is This YEAR in Bullshit.

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.

Sondland's Explosive Testimony \ Trump's Sondland Problem \ Dem Debate Preview \ Everybody Loves Gordon

The Daily Recount

Doesn't get much clearer than the "answer is yes." Sondland veered onto an alternate course today as he confirms a quid pro quo. Plus, that $1 million donation to Trump's inaugural committee didn't stop Sondland from throwing the president under the bus, along with Pompeo… and Bolton… and Mulvaney… and Pence… and Giuliani. Holy shit. Oh, and if that weren't enough, there's a Dem debate tonight at 9 p.m. ET.

Impeachment in the Morning \ Impeachment in the Afternoon \ What We Learned Today

The Daily Recount

Vindman. Williams. Volker. Morrison. Four witnesses. Two hearings. One loooong day. It was a day of firsts: This morning, we heard from the first witnesses on that July 25th phone call with Ukraine. This afternoon, we heard from the first witnesses summoned by the GOP. And most importantly, we heard from our first witness over 7 feet tall! The stakes have never been higher for the impeachment investigation. So if there's a day to watch the Daily Recount, it's this one.
