Rand Paul sketches an impressive blue ballpoint pen doodle of the US Capitol during the Senate trial.
What is the source of McConnell and Schumer’s mutual animosity? “Merrick Garland, Merrick Garland, Merrick Garland,” @jamespmanley tells @tpurdum theatlantic.com/politics/archi…
Whatever one thinks of Roberts's famous comparison of judges to umpires, he is trying to be an umpire now, staying far away from partisanship in hopes of returning to his day job with his reputation and that of his court undiminished. ⁦@adamliptaknytimes.com/2020/01/22/us/…
California lost 1 million residents to other states from 2007-16, in part because of high housing costs, taxes and the political culture. The most popular destination? Texas. ⁦@mollyhflatimes.com/world-nation/s…

My new Letter from day two of the Senate trial is up @NewYorker >>> Adam Schiff’s Moment newyorker.com/news/letter-fr… via @NewYorker

There was no question who was the public face of the House managers' case today. Schiff spoke for more than 4 hours in all, compared with about 3 hours by the other six managers combined.
"As the House managers began to methodically lay out their case against President Trump, there was a hangover quality in general to Wednesday’s proceedings—a hangover from the sharply partisan tone of the trial’s first day,” writes @sbg1 newyorker.com/news/letter-fr…
From our interviews on impeachment: "I can say, damn near everything I’ve ever been accused of, I did it.” "Fiona Hill — that would be a great name for an alternative band.” "I can’t think of the name of the country. Not Czechoslovakia.” nytimes.com/interactive/20…
Trump returns to Washington as Air Force One touches down at Joint Base Andrews. Pooler @agearan reports that Fox News was airing on the plane television system for much of the flight, including the start of the impeachment trial proceedings.
Trump announces that he will attend the March for Life in Washington on Friday, the first president ever to participate in person.
Per @billfrisch and his remarkable @FactbaseFeed which tracks all things Trump.
Trump breaks his own Twitter record with 132 tweets or retweets as of 4:45 p.m., the most of any single day of his presidency, as he defended himself and lashed out at the House managers.

As opening arguments begin in the Senate trial, the American public remains divided right down the middle, almost exactly where it has been for weeks. In @politico @MorningConsult poll, 47% favored Trump’s removal and 45% opposed it. @caitlinoprysko politico.com/news/2020/01/2…
Is Putin's latest move meant to set him up to rule for life? Or is he trying to lay the ground to retire without facing threat? Moscow and the world are left guessing. ⁦@antontroiannytimes.com/2020/01/21/wor…
"We are not, by nature, silent": For 100 senators who love the sound of their own voice, the real trial is sitting in their seats for hours on end without saying anything. ⁦@ESCochranenytimes.com/2020/01/21/us/…
"On Day One of Trump’s trial, I learned only that Susan Collins was diligent and attentive and right-handed. I have no idea how she will vote," writes ⁦@sbg1newyorker.com/news/letter-fr…
Turley, who testified for the House Republicans and is critical of the Democrats' impeachment case, breaks with Trump team on its novel constitutional argument that abuse of power is not impeachable. washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/…

"I do think those addressing the Senate should remember where they are." After a day largely sitting back and letting the debate play out, Roberts admonishes both sides for crossing the line of civil discourse.
Check out the incredible reporting from @sbg1, @peterbakernyt, and @ddale8 today. Also, check this out from your local public library, as I did, to learn more about the impeachment process in history. @jmeacham @TimNaftali @jeffreyaengel

"The senators … looked like they will have a hard time making it through the ordeal. Within an hour or so, they were fidgeting in their seats. There was yawning, and … the first senator [was] caught snoozing.” @sbg1 on the opening of the Trump trial. newyorker.com/news/letter-fr…
Trump lawyers say abuse of power is not impeachable. Who disagrees? Barr, who once said a president "is answerable for any abuses of discretion and is ultimately subject to the judgment of Congress through the impeachment process." ⁦@charlie_savagenytimes.com/2020/01/21/us/…
Watching McConnell and Schumer quarrel on the floor is a striking contrast with Lott and Daschle during the Clinton trial 21 years ago.

Four Times journalists reflected on what it was like to cover President Clinton's imeachment. "We thought it was the most partisan, most divisive era we could ever imagine. Today, that seems almost quaint," said @peterbakernyt. nyti.ms/37lihiY

At the opening of only the third Senate impeachment trial in U.S. history, we ask: What can the last trial teach us about this one? Listen to today's episode of "The Daily" with Chief White House Correspondent @peterbakernyt nyti.ms/36fu4xL

CNN reporting is that this is a result of pressure from Republicans, not Democrats twitter.com/peterbakernyt/…

McConnell revises trial rules to allow three days for each side to present arguments instead of two (as in Clinton trial) and will admit the House evidence rather than require a vote on whether to do so.
This photo of the Senate Press Gallery makes me sad. Every member of the press goes through layers of security before reaching this space in the Capitol, which is supposed to afford journalists unimpeded firsthand access to what is happening on the Senate floor. Now, another mag. twitter.com/APAndrewTaylor…

Not feeling the Bern: “Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done. He was a career politician. It’s all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it," Hillary Clinton says of Sanders. ⁦@ByMattStevensnytimes.com/2020/01/21/us/…

Reporters (like everyone else) already walk through magnetomers to get into the Capitol. Senate rules already bar cell phones and other electronic devices in the chamber; they must be left at the door. This is duplicative and unnecessary. twitter.com/apandrewtaylor…

Also, regarding that requirement for silence during the Senate trial: Who are the senators betting will have the toughest time sitting quietly for hours? (Hint: He golfs a lot with @realDonaldTrump and has rarely seen a TV camera he doesnt stop for.) nytimes.com/2020/01/21/us/…

According to @SenPatRoberts, he and his colleagues are used to "noisily “mill around like cattle” on the Senate floor. So what will they do, starting today, when they have to sit silently “on pain of imprisonment?” Read this from @ESCochrane to find out: nytimes.com/2020/01/21/us/…

Trump approval rating is 70% in working-class counties and 80% in farmland counties, while 30% in big-city counties and 35% in close-in urban suburbs.
The disconnect between politics and the the economy: Some places benefiting most in Trump economy are most against him while some places he is strongest are faring worse. ⁦@GeraldFSeibwsj.com/articles/today…
Dershowitz advances novel theory that an impeachable offense has to be an specific crime on the books, not something broader like abuse of power. "Most of the scholars disagree with me," he acknowledged to @charlie_savage. "I think they’re wrong.” nytimes.com/2020/01/20/us/…
The president’s lawyers advanced their first sustained legal argument since the House opened its inquiry last fall, contending that the two charges passed along party lines were constitutionally flawed and set a dangerous precedent. @maggieNYT @npfandos nytimes.com/2020/01/20/us/…
Romney: "If attempts are made to vote on witnesses prior to opening arguments, I would oppose those efforts."
Key differences between Trump and Clinton trial rules: 1) Each side has up to 24 hours for arguments but has to squeeze them into two days. 2) The Senate will not automatically accept the House record but will vote on whether to do so.
