Good Morning, It’s Tuesday, 5 December 2017, and this is the Morning Edition of The Nightshift, The World News Daily
President Trump flew to Utah yesterday as part of a program to slash the amount of protected land around the Bears Ears and Grand Staircase National Monument Parks. Expect a protracted legal fight as conservationists battle against the move.
Trump also endorsed Roy Moore of Alabama, the Republican Senatorial candidate who has been accused–but not convicted–of inappropriate behavior by a group of nine young women.
Word is circulating that Michigan Representative John Conyers, currently in a hospital for “stress” complications, will announce that he does not intend to run again for Congress. If true, that would be the only effective thing Conyers has done in Congress for several years. And, as noted previously, Conyers has stayed way past his use-by-date. American does not need to be supporting an ineffective, distracted Congressman who has been accused of holding meetings in his underwear. Enough.
President Trump’s attorneys are advancing a legal theory that the President cannot be impeached for obstruction of justice. They might want to hit the law books on this one as it’s already been litigated and, yes, he can. Both Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton were impeached on obstruction of justice charges. There is a legal precedent.
The Daily Grope: Peter Martins, head of the New York City Ballet, has been accused of sexual harassment in an anonymous letter and suspended.
Paul Manfort, indicted by Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller, has been accused of working up an op-ed piece that paints his “consulting” in Ukraine in a positive manner. Manafort was developing the op-ed–since killed–with a Russian associate who has known ties to Russian intelligence. Expect bail revocation for Manafort.
Ivan Chermayeff, one of the world’s great designers (he created the logos for Pan Am, The Smithsonian Institute) has died.
The New York Giants fired both ineffective head coach Ben Mcadoo and ineffective GM Jerry Reese. The Giants are going through yet another very poor season and it’s time for a change.
Today is National Bathtub Party Day. Now…where did you leave that flock of rubber ducks?
