The impeachment trial of Donald Trump starts Tuesday with debate on trial procedures—namely, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's carefully planned cover-up. The debate will be conducted by the House impeachment managers and Trump’s defense team. On Tuesday McConnell released a slightly relaxed version of the dark-of-night procedure he initially proposed, but make no mistake that he and Trump’s team continue to press for a cover-up. Republicans have voted down one Democratic amendment calling for new evidence. The House impeachment managers have been eating the Trump defense team’s lunch on both substance and style, but Republican senators do. not. care. Wednesday, Jan 22, 2020 · 12:28:37 AM +00:00 · Mark Sumner Of all the baffling statements from Trump’s attorneys during these opening statements, the idea that Barack Obama withholding military assistance from Egypt shows that there was no problem with Trump’s actions is maybe the most out there. That suspension wasn’t made in secret. It was public. And it was made with the knowledge and urging of members of the House and Senate. Between the time the aid was allocated and the time it was to be sent, Egypt underwent a military takeover. Aid was suspended until 2015 when Obama worked with Egyptian President al-Sisi to restore assistance. That anyone in the Senate would think these were equivalent is just … strange. This reads like something that Sekulow picked up from a Hannity broadcast and didn’t spent two minutes checking before taking it before the U.S. Senate. Wednesday, Jan 22, 2020 · 12:30:01 AM +00:00 · Mark Sumner As expected, McConnell has moved to table the request for documents from the OMB and Republicans are now undergoing the ritual display bowing to Trump. Someone wake up Risch.
Donald Trump is on trial for trying to cheat Americans out of a fair election, and now Senate Republicans are cheating Americans out of a fair trial. Although tiny rumblings in the GOP caucus resulted in small rule changes, Senate Republicans now appear poised to vote down every amendment Democrats offer to include witnesses and documents in the trial, just like they did they first and second one. Americans, the vast majority of whom want a fair Senate trial with witnesses, should be outraged. And vulnerable Senate Republicans toeing the party line, should be getting more uncomfortable with each vote. Yet as NBC News pointed out Tuesday morning, Senate Democrats are putting little-to-no pressure on their Republican counterparts. «Indeed, according to our ad trackers at Advertising Analytics, there are 11 impeachment-themed TV ads airing across the country right now, and all 11 are by Republicans and GOP groups,» NBC writes.

An Indian national in the US has been indicted on charges of running various international money laundering schemes and operating unlicensed transmission businesses. Amit Agarwal, who was arrested in the US in December last year at Newark International Airport, operated a wholesale consumer electronics business in East Hanover in New Jersey. He, along with six Colombian nationals, has been charged with four indictments. The Colombians were arrested in Colombia, and the US government is seeking their extradition to America. US Attorney Geoffrey Berman said the illegal drug trade depended on shadow financial networks to move drug traffickers' profits into the US banking system and across borders. «As alleged, these defendants ran those types of networks in both the United States and Colombia,» Berman said. As alleged in the indictments unsealed in Manhattan federal court, from about June 2018 to 2019, the defendants were involved in schemes to launder funds from locations throughout ...
