Published

Even though there is a potential political downside to impeaching President Donald Trump, a new report from Politico claims that Democrats in the Senate feel that watching their Republican colleagues defend the president’s corrupt actions will be beneficial in their efforts to retake the Senate.

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) tells Politico that he does not believe most voters will be eager to defend the president once they see the full scope of his behavior.

“Voters are going to see this as a stinking fish,” Murphy said. “I don’t think voters are going to want their member of Congress or Senate to be up here defending the president’s actions.”

Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) insisted that Democrats need to conduct an impeachment inquiry even if it harms them politically — but she also predicted that many Republicans would be put into a tight vise during the actual impeachment trial.

“If I were them in many of the states where people are running, I certainly would, politically, be concerned about taking that vote,” she said.

The British Broadcasting Corporation is reporting on the "frantic and on-the-edge" situation in an intensive care unit in New York City.

The BBC had footage from CBS News, which was allowed in the ICU.

"Though the administration says there's no shortage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), the reality is otherwise," the BBC noted.

A front-line worker wearing a garbage bag "wished" she had the same PPE as the reporter.

"It's very, very difficult, it's like something out of 'The Twilight Zone,'" she said.

"And I don't think any of us going through it will ever be the same," she added.
