PELOSI: "The truth is that Donald Trump dismantled the infrastructure handed to him which was meant to plan for and overcome a pandemic, resulting in unnecessary deaths and economic disaster."
PELOSI: "The truth is that, in January, Donald Trump was warned about this pandemic, ignored those warnings, took insufficient action and caused unnecessary death and disaster."
PELOSI: "The truth is that Donald Trump told his most loyal followers that the pandemic was a hoax and that it would magically disappear, thus endangering lives and paving the way for economic disaster."

Trump just said the WHO estimate of a 3.4 percent coronavirus death rate globally is "really a false number" adding "this is just my hunch" but "personally, I would say the number is way under 1 percent."
More Trump on coronavirus death rate: "A lot of people will have this and it is very mild. They will get better very rapidly. They don't even see a doctor. They don't even call a doctor. You never hear about those people."

@CNN TAYLOR: "I found a confusing and unusual arrangement for making U.S policy towards Ukraine... There was an irregular, informal channel of U.S. policy-making with respect to Ukraine..."
@CNN TAYLOR: "I sensed something odd when Ambassador Sondland told me on June 28 that he did not wish to include most of the regular interagency participants in a call... [He] said that he wanted to make sure no one was transcribing or monitoring as they added President Zelenskyy..."

If you're looking for a stat to explain the impeachment vote for Democrats in the House:

Democrats who voted to consider impeachment represent districts where Clinton won by 43 points.

Democrats who voted to table impeachment represent districts where Clinton won by 17 points.
95 Democrats voted to consider impeachment today, more than the 66 last January.

But the movement is in the half of the Dem caucus that represents more liberal districts:

January 2018:
53% of liberal half
18% of moderate half

66% of liberal half
15% of moderate half
A key data point on the House vote on impeachment:

Of the 92 House Dems representing the most liberal districts, 64 voted to consider impeachment.

Of the 92 House Dems representing the most moderate districts, only 5 (!) voted to consider impeachment.

New Cohen sentencing document overnight repeats the claim that Cohen "acted on his client’s instructions" in making hush money payments to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal.
In new document, Michael Cohen says that Daniels/McDougal would have hurt the campaign: "Michael felt obligated to assist Client-1, on Client-1’s instruction, to attempt to prevent Woman-1 and Woman-2 from disseminating narratives that would adversely affect the Campaign."
Trump previously tweeted in May that the payments had "nothing to do with the campaign."

What struck me most in the climate change report is how our public understanding of climate change is *WAY* too narrow. The report paints a picture of climate change pervading literally *every* sphere of life. (1/thread)
Yes, it's more intense storms and rising ocean levels and increasing heat. But it's *way* more than that. So I made a list of what’s to come, according to the report. Warning: It's very, very long. Here we go:
- worse milk quality
- more heat exhaustion, heat-stroke and heart attacks
- reduced harvests of shellfish
- shortened downhill and cross-country ski seasons
- more stress on bridge integrity
- increased US international development assistance programs costs
