Some personal news: I am honored to join the talented and incomparable @jaketapper  as co-anchor of @CNNSotu  and to work with a show team I already have the privilege to know - best in the biz.

I’m told that Michigan GOP Rep Fred Upton will vote to impeach the president.

No @Jim_Jordan  this is not what the cancel culture is. This is not about the first amendment. Last Wednesday the people who believed lies about the election being stolen had a right to protest. They didn't have a right to violently storm the Capitol.

Let's all take a step back and recognize that even after all that has happened, Republican after Republican is still defending the president and his lies about the election.

There it is. Finally. "Joe Biden will be president... because he won the election." @GOPLeader 

"I will not use process as an excuse. There is no excuse for the president's actions" - @RepNewhouse  as the Republican announces he will vote yes for impeachment

In an incredibly poignant, heartbreaking moment @RepRaskin  told @jaketapper  he refuses to lose his son in 2020 and his "country and republic" in 2021.


A source familiar with POTUS phone calls from the hospital today tells me he said “I need to get out of here.” He's being warned that if he rushes to leave the hospital and has a setback it would be bad for not just his health, but his re-election campaign.

Just now GOP @SenSasse  released a statement calling the president’s executive actions “unconstitutional slop”

“Gave birth to me at Kaiser Hospital in Oakland, California” - aka - I was born in America.

Im told the debate commission will announce that - except the candidates and the moderator- all in hall must wear masks until the conclusion of debates now. Those who do not will be escorted out. (In Cleveland this week, the first family took their masks off after walking in)

I know it was like 12 news cycles ago at this point, but quote "With all due respect, I don't get confused" should go down as one of the best by a female leader. Ever. Said so much, with so few words.

Siren - my kick ass colleague was banned from an open press event for asking legit questions of the president on behalf of the 5 network pool. As a former White House reporter and as an American - this is outrageous and highly alarming.

Former Trump chief of staff and Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly just told @jaketapper  the cabinet should meet to have a discussion about the 25th amendment... and that if he was still in the cabinet he would vote YES to invoke it.
