Andrea, season's first named storm, forms in Atlantic, breaking record

Andrea, season's first named storm, forms in Atlantic, breaking record | 21 May 2019 | Subtropical storm Andrea formed Monday about 295 miles west southwest of Bermuda and 12 days ahead of the official June 1 start date of hurricane season.

Its early arrival means the Atlantic basin has now had named storms prior to June 1 in the past five consecutive years, breaking a record of named storm formations prior to June 1 from the 1951 to 1954 time frame, according to Colorado State University storm researcher Phil Klotzbach.

Democrats fume as McGahn skips House hearing: 'Our subpoenas are not optional'

Democrats fume as McGahn skips House hearing: 'Our subpoenas are not optional' | 21 May 2019 | The top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee vowed Tuesday to go to court if necessary to seek former White House Counsel Don McGahn's testimony, after he defied a subpoena and skipped a committee hearing at President Trump's direction. The move infuriated Democrats and touched off what could be another high-profile battle over holding a Trump official in contempt of Congress.

Nadler prepares to punish Don McGahn after White House directs former counsel not to testify | 21 May 2019 | Former White House counsel Don McGahn will not appear Tuesday before the House Judiciary Committee, his lawyers said in a letter Monday, defying the committee's subpoena. It's a move that appears to set the stage for another contempt vote to retaliate against the Trump administration for rejecting the demands of Congress, as committee Chairman Jerry Nadler threatened late Monday to do whatever was necessary to make McGahn appear before his panel, which convenes Tuesday at 10 a.m. ET. "As with the subpoena for documents, Mr. McGahn again finds himself facing contradictory instructions from two co-equal branches of government," McGahn's attorney William A. Burck said in a letter to Nadler. He added later, "Under these circumstances, and also conscious of the duties he, as an attorney, owes to his former client, Mr. McGahn must decline to appear at the hearing tomorrow."

Republican Justin Amash Calls for Impeachment - While Holding Personal Business Interests in China

Republican Justin Amash Calls for Impeachment - While Holding Personal Business Interests in China | 18 May 2019 | Michigan Republican Congressman Justin Amash made headlines Saturday by declaring on Twitter that President Trump deserved impeachment.

Jim Lower (R) said he would challenge Amash in the Republican primary for his western Michigan seat rather than seek a third term in the state legislature. Lower said he had been planning to run before Amash's remarks but fast-tracked his announcement after the tweets this weekend despite originally planning to make it closer to July 4.

However, it was only envisaged as a temporary fix and the bottom of the crater was never lined, leading to fears the waste is leaching into the Pacific.
