“We are now in a situation where Donald Trump last summer after Bob Mueller testified: he got up the next day, picked up the phone and did foreign interference again, invited foreign interference from Zelensky.

“What is going to happen at the end of January when by all reasonable reckonings he is acquitted in the Senate? What is going to happen? What’s going to happen is Donald Trump is going to go and look for foreign interference again. I guarantee it.

“He is going to try to solicit foreign interference in the 2020 elections and it will be from someone that is aligned with Vladimir Putin. It’s as clear as the notion the sun rises in the east and sets in the west.” – John Heilemann, on MSNBC this afternoon.

A UK diver wants $190 million in damages from Elon Musk for a tweet calling him “pedo guy”, a US court has heard. Vernon Unsworth, who helped rescue 12 boys trapped in a Thai cave last year, is suing Mr Musk for defamation.

He asked a jury in a Los Angeles federal court to award him $150 million in punitive damages, as well as $40 million for assumed and actual damages. Mr Unsworth’s lawyer Lin Wood said the award would be a “hard slap on the wrist” for the Tesla co-founder.

Calling Mr Musk, 48, a “billionaire bully” in his closing statement, Mr Wood told the court that his client’s modest life had been upended by the very public row.

Days after pleading guilty to misusing campaign funds, Congressman Duncan Hunter has announced he will resign from Congress.

Hunter, who represented the 50th District, pleaded guilty Tuesday to a federal charge of conspiracy to misuse campaign funds for personal use. Though after the plea, it wasn’t clear if the embattled Congressman would resign.

“Shortly after the Holidays I will resign from Congress. It has been an honor to serve the people of California’s 50th District, and I greatly appreciate the trust they have put in me over these last 11 years,” Rep. Hunter said in a statement.

Rep. Justin Amash said Friday that he is prepared to vote for three articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, ensuring that Democrats won’t be the only ones to impeach the President when the historic vote hits the floor as soon as this month.

Amash, a Michigan independent who left the Republican Party this summer after he backed formal impeachment proceedings, told CNN on Friday he would back three articles of impeachment: obstruction of Congress, obstruction of justice and abuse of power. He cautioned though he would wait to see the final language before ultimately committing to vote for them.

“I think there’s sufficient evidence for all three,” Amash said Friday on his way to the House floor. “Impeachment is like an indictment. We’re just issuing the charges. The trial happens in the Senate. There’s certainly probable cause to issue charges.”

“We have a situation where we’re looking very strongly at sinks and showers and other elements of bathrooms, where you turn the faucet on in areas where there’s tremendous amounts of water, where the water rushes out to sea because you could never handle it. And you don’t get any water. You turn on the faucet — you don’t get any water. They take a shower, and water comes dripping out, it’s dripping out very quietly, dripping out.

“People are flushing toilets 10 times, 15 times, as opposed to once. They end up using more water. So EPA is looking at that very strongly, at my suggestion. You go into a new building or a new house or a new home, and they have standards where you don’t get water. You can’t wash your hands, practically, there’s so little water comes out of the faucet. And the end result is you leave the faucet on, and it takes you much longer to wash your hands. You end up using the same amount of water.”

“So we’re looking at, very seriously, at opening up the standard, and there may be some areas where we’ll go the other route. Desert areas. But for the most part, you have many states where they have so much water that it comes down — it’s called rain — that they don’t know what to do with it. So we’re going to be opening up that, I believe. And we’re looking at changing the standards very soon.” – Donald J. Trump, alleged president of the United States.

CNBC reports:

President Donald Trump on Friday asked the Supreme Court to temporarily halt subpoenas for his financial records sent to two banks by congressional Democrats, the latest in a string of court battles over the president’s personal financial dealings to make its way to the justices.

A federal appeals court ruled on Tuesday that Deutsche Bank and Capital One must turn over years of the president’s personal and business financial records to two Democratic-led committees in the House of Representatives. The subpoenas, issued in April, also seek information related to the finances of the president’s family members.

The case resembles two others in which Trump has already obtained temporary stays of lower court rulings requiring the disclosure of his financial records. Those cases involve subpoenas from the House Oversight Committee and Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance to Mazars USA, the president’s longtime accounting firm.

“The King said that the Saudi people are greatly angered by the barbaric actions of the shooter, and that this person in no way shape or form represents the feelings of the Saudi people who love the American people,” Trump tweeted.

The Saudi leader expressed his condolences to the families of those killed in the shooting, Trump said. “It’s a horrible thing that took place, and we’re getting to the bottom of it,” Trump said of the shooting during an event focused on deregulation.

Buttigieg’s request for his former employer to release the list comes as pressure mounts on the 2020 Democratic candidate to be more transparent about his years at McKinsey, amid news stories about the consulting firm’s work with controversial clients like ICE.

In an interview with New Hampshire Public Radio on Friday, Buttigieg said he felt “that McKinsey should release the client list of the clients that I served.” “It’s something they can do,” said the South Bend mayor, who worked at McKinsey from 2007-2010. Buttigeig explained that he’d signed a nondisclosure agreement under which “you promise to keep your client information confidential.”

Four people including the shooter were killed in the episode at Naval Air Station Pensacola, the Navy and local sheriff’s office said, the second deadly shooting at a U.S. military installation this week.

While military bases house the nation’s most powerful armaments, military personnel normally are restricted from carrying weapons on base unless they are part of their daily duties.

Matt Gaetz is already exploiting the shooting.

Warren’s latest physical was conducted on January 14, according to her long-time physician, Dr. Beverly Woo of Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston.

Woo said that the exam showed Warren’s blood pressure, heart rate and blood tests were all normal, her cholesterol was “excellent,” and that Warren also had a mammogram to screen for breast cancer. Warren is 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs 129 pounds, and received a flu shot in October, Woo wrote in the letter.

The Associated Press reports:

As Democrats champion anti-discrimination protections for the LGBTQ community and Republicans counter with worries about safeguarding religious freedom, one congressional Republican is offering a proposal on Friday that aims to achieve both goals.

The bill that Utah GOP Rep. Chris Stewart plans to unveil would shield LGBTQ individuals from discrimination in employment, housing, education, and other public services — while also carving out exemptions for religious organizations to act based on beliefs that may exclude those of different sexual orientations or gender identities.

Stewart’s bill counts support from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the Seventh-day Adventist Church, but it has yet to win a backer among House Democrats who unanimously supported a more expansive LGBTQ rights measure in May.

Chris Johnson reports at the Washington Blade:

Much like the Equality Act, the Fairness for All Act would make anti-LGBT discrimination against federal law, but it would also institute a accommodation for institutions like religious organization and small-business wedding vendors.

The Fairness for All Act would prohibit anti-LGBT discrimination in employment, housing, jury selection, credit, federal programs and public accommodations, but do so without defining anti-LGBT discrimination as sex discrimination. The bill would also expand the definition of public accommodations beyond the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

The Fairness for All Act would also extend protections to small business whose owners refuse to provide services to same-sex weddings based on religious objections. The nation’s leading advocacy group for LGBTQ rights says the Fairness for All Act doesn’t go far enough, and an anti-LGBT legal firm that purports to protect religious freedom also doesn’t support the legislation.

Law & Crime reports:

Days after three out of four prominent legal scholars agreed at a congressional hearing that it’s been shown that President Donald Trump committed impeachable offenses, hundreds of legal scholars–and counting–have signed their names on an open letter to Congress.

The letter was published Friday on Medium by the Protect Democracy Project, which styles itself as a nonpartisan, nonprofit group “dedicated to fighting attacks, from at home and abroad, on our right to free, fair, and fully informed self-government.”

It’s reminiscent of a letter signed by hundreds of former federal prosecutors months ago, which said that Trump would have been charged for obstructing the Mueller Probe if he wasn’t the president.

From their open letter:

We, the undersigned legal scholars, have concluded that President Trump engaged in impeachable conduct. We do not reach this conclusion lightly. The Founders did not make impeachment available for disagreements over policy, even profound ones, nor for extreme distaste for the manner in which the President executes his office. Only “Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors” warrant impeachment.

But there is overwhelming evidence that President Trump betrayed his oath of office by seeking to use presidential power to pressure a foreign government to help him distort an American election, for his personal and political benefit, at the direct expense of national security interests as determined by Congress. His conduct is precisely the type of threat to our democracy that the Founders feared when they included the remedy of impeachment in the Constitution.

The New York Times reports:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi was planning to deliver back-to-back eulogies at funerals here and in South Carolina during a busy weekend of late September travel when she saw an explosive headline in The Wall Street Journal: “Trump Repeatedly Pressed Ukraine to Investigate Biden’s Son.”

For months, Ms. Pelosi had resisted calls for impeachment. It would be nearly another week before the release of a whistle-blower’s complaint detailing Mr. Trump’s push for Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and his son — and days before nervous moderates told her they were ready to back an impeachment inquiry they had shunned all year.

But the news of Mr. Trump’s repeated entreaties for Ukraine to investigate a leading political rival was too much for Ms. Pelosi. The speaker’s mind was made up to embark on proceedings that could lead to the impeachment and removal of the 45th president of the United States.

The Christian Post reports:

Highlighting a raft of promises fulfilled by President Donald Trump through policies advancing economic prosperity and religious freedom, Vice President Mike Pence rallied faith leaders in Michigan Wednesday to pray for four more years of the Trump administration in 2020.

“I wanted to come here today and make sure you all knew, as leaders in the faith community here in western Michigan, the priority this president has placed on ensuring the freedom of religion and the freedom of speech of every American,” Pence said to applause in remarks made at the Valley Family Church.

“It was this president — this president who’s recognized Israel’s capital and moved our embassy and recognized the Golan Heights are a part of Israel. And I promise you, this president and this administration will stand with Israel,” Pence assured.

Michigan Live reports:

Pence’s remarks drew a standing ovation several times. The crowd strongly applauded Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Founding pastors of Valley Family Church Jeff and Beth Jones warmly received Pence with a prayer upon his arrival.

“Thank you, Lord, for President Donald J. Trump and your hand upon him,” Beth Jones said during the prayer.

“Thank you for his 2017 declaration in the Rose Garden that we are a nation of faith. We are in agreement with that and thankful for the favor that President has shown towards people of faith and faith-based organizations.”

Roll Call reports:

Rep. George Holding announced Friday that he will not run for Congress again in 2020 in his own district or a neighboring one. The North Carolina Republican’s district became more Democratic on a new congressional map.

Holding’s decision comes after he said earlier this week that he would not run in a district that he could not win and that he would not challenge a sitting Republican in a neighboring, and more favorable, district.

Holding said in a statement that “the newly redrawn congressional districts were part of the reason I have decided not to seek reelection. But, in addition, this is also a good time for me to step back and reflect on what I have learned.”

Holding’s one appearance on JMG came six years ago when he fell asleep while presiding over the House during a speech by Loony Louie Gohmert.
