Morning briefing: January 19

Today is January 19, I am DML, and this is the list of stories I am following this morning.

1-Woman’s March draws lame crowds
People gathered in cities across the country Saturday as part of the nationwide Women’s March rallies. Hundreds showed up in New York City and thousands in Washington, D.C. for the rallies, which aim to harness the political power of women, although crowds were noticeably smaller than in previous years. Marches were scheduled Saturday in more than 180 cities.

DML: They should have invited Trump, there would have had a real crowd.

2- Trump legal team posts response
The AP reports that President Donald Trump’s legal team issued a fiery response Saturday ahead of opening arguments in his impeachment trial, while House Democrats laid out their case in forceful fashion, saying the president betrayed public trust with behavior that was the “worst nightmare” of the founding fathers.

The dueling filings previewed arguments both sides intend to make once Trump’s impeachment trial begins in earnest Tuesday in the Senate. Their challenge will be to make a case that appeals to the 100 senators who will render the verdict and for an American public bracing for a presidential election in 10 months.

“President Donald J. Trump used his official powers to pressure a foreign government to interfere in a United States election for his personal political gain,” the House prosecutors wrote, “and then attempted to cover up his scheme by obstructing Congress’s investigation into his misconduct.”

Trump’s legal team, responding to the Senate’s official summons for the trial, said the president “categorically and unequivocally” denies the charges of abuse and obstruction against him.

“This is a brazen and unlawful attempt to overturn the results of the 2016 election and interfere with the 2020 election, now just months away,” the president’s filing states.

DML: This is all a sin.  There should be no impeachment of this president.

3- Biden calls out Sanders over edited video
Joe Biden has called for Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign to “disown” what he calls “doctored video” that some Sanders supporters say shows the former vice president endorsing Republican calls to cut Social Security and Medicare.

“There’s a little doctored video going around … put out by one of Bernie’s people,” Biden told supporters Saturday in Indianola, Iowa, referring to a 2018 speech in which Biden discussed then-House Speaker Paul Ryan saying rising deficit demanded action on the popular entitlement programs.

DML: Biden will beat Sanders in primaries.

4-Hong Kong gets messy, again
Clashes broke out between protesters and police in Hong Kong on Sunday, cutting short a rally after thousands had gathered at a park to call for electoral reforms and a boycott of the Chinese Communist Party.

DML: People want to be free.  There’s no other way to say it.

5-Kevin is sleeping again
He had the worst back pain in the world, Kevin tells me.  But after taking DML PURE CBD SOFTGELS for 3 months, his back pain diminished and his sleeping improved by 90%.  He then started using MIRACLE ME.  The back pain is all but gone, and he is sleeping through the night for the first time in 35 years.  “I am back to being a human being!”, declares Kevin.
