Republicans made last-minute changes to their proposed rules to placate moderates, but they held together to turn back Democratic efforts to subpoena documents.
Craig CalhounCompletely fitting: The Trump administration has consistently opposed basing any policy on knowledge or evidence. Republican Senators have consistently put supporting Trump ahead of the country. Why should impeachment be any different?

On Monday, the president’s lawyers asserted he did nothing wrong and urged the Senate to “swiftly reject” the charges against him.
Craig CalhounMcConnell plays toady to Trump and Asks Senate for Impeachment Trial without full consideration of evidence. So sad to have a Senator in charge who is a partisan but not a patriot and has no commitment to Constitutional requirements.
In 2020, both the radical and the realist models warrant serious consideration.
Craig CalhounSo, the @nytimes Editorial Board is divided between those who see the need for major political change and those who don’t. This is some improvement on their usual centrism. But their major innovation is not making up their minds or voting.
The Delta Air Lines plane jettisoned fuel over Los Angeles schools as it made an emergency landing.
Craig CalhounHow long will it take the FAA to investigate? Seem a pretty obvious violation. Only question is how Delta and the idiot pilot should share responsibility?

The new uniform, unveiled on the force's Twitter, has prompted one question: "Camo in space?"
Craig CalhounThe US Space Force is just a political stunt in the first place. It can legitimately be mocked for much deeper things than unveiling camouflage uniforms (like pretending anything about it is intended to save money).
Dennis A. Muilenburg, who was ousted last month, forfeited stock awards worth some $14.6 million, but he is still contractually entitled to receive other benefits.
Craig CalhounI really want to believe the saying "there is no justice is wrong". Of course, this massive injustice doesn't help the care.

The president and his allies dismiss the criticism about Iran as partisan blowback from political adversaries too timid to take strong action against foreign enemies.
Craig Calhoun“An unstable President in way over his head, panicking, with all his experienced advisers having quit, and only the sycophantic amateurs remaining. Assassinating foreign leaders, announcing plans to bomb civilians. A nightmare.”
Friend and foe alike are left puzzled over what President Trump aimed to achieve by killing a top Iranian general, what he might do next or how Tehran could mollify him.
Craig CalhounIt's absurd that @NYT keeps using phrase's like "Trump's Iran Strategy". There is no evidence to support the idea that he has a strategy. At most he has impulses, tendencies, and a hunch.
