It’s official: President Trump has now become the first president impeached twice. The House vote count has now passed the needed 218 votes to impeach him.

New Trump statement as Congress moves to impeach him for inciting violence says: "In light of reports of more demonstrations, I urge that there must be NO violence, NO lawbreaking and NO vandalism of any kind. ... I call on ALL Americans to help ease tensions and calm tempers."

President-elect Joe Biden: "We not only have an economic imperative to act now, I believe, we have a moral obligation. In this pandemic, in America, we cannot let people go hungry. We cannot let people get evicted. ... We must act now and act decisively."

So sad to hear about the death of @BryanKMonroe , a former president of NABJ who had much success in journalism. He was a kind & generous person who gave his time & energy to help & advocate for others. My heart goes out to his family & friends.

Biden's $1.9 trillion COVID relief bill: --$400 billion to fight COVID --$1 trillion in direct relief to Americans --$440 billion in relief to communities, businesses --$1,400 checks to individuals --$400 unemployment insurance supplement More:

President Trump today at the White House said to me: “Be nice. Don't be threatening.” I’m not the first human being, woman, black person or journalist to be told that while doing a job. My take: Be steady. Stay focused. Remember your purpose. And, always press forward.

George Floyd's brother, Philonise, on his conversation w/ Pres Trump on @MSNBC : "It was so fast. He didn't give me the opportunity to even speak. It was hard. I was trying to talk to him but he just kept like pushing me off like 'I don’t want to hear what you’re talking about.'"

Here is what was happening outside the White House as President Trump was giving his Rose Garden address and saying he is an “ally of all peaceful protestors.” Peaceful protestors being tear gassed outside of the WH gates. I confirmed because I was teargassed along with them.

Important story: A Florida officer who knocked over a seated protester just before a peaceful protest against police abuse turned violent has been reviewed by internal affairs for using force 79 times in his roughly three-and-half years on the force.

John Lewis asked The NYT to publish this on the day of his funeral. It is necessary reading. He writes, “When you see something that is not right, you must say something ... Democracy is not a state. It is an act, and each generation must do its part.”
