Ohio Democratic Senator (Sherrod Brown) has slammed Senate Republicans for enabling Donald Trump [Vindman] in his post-impeachment “retribution tour”, as he called it.

After sounding off during a committee hearing yesterday, Brown appeared on CNN this morning and criticized some Republicans who reckoned the president would “learn a lesson” from the humiliating process of being impeached, and behave more appropriately.

“He’s learned his lesson,” said Brown. The lesson being that “he can do whatever he wants. The ‘retribution tour’ will continue, and we all know that. ”

Trump ousted impeachment witnesses Alexander Vindman and Gordon Sondland last week, just two days after being acquitted at his Senate impeachment trial.

Brown continued that Republican senators criticize Trump in private and were “very concerned about the Ukraine call and the cover-up” that lead to the impeachment. “But they fear that the president will turn on them. They know his character. [After impeachment] the first stop was the prayer breakfast [during which he obliquely slammed Nancy Pelosi and Mitt Romney], then the East Room [where Trump made a triumphalist and vindictive post-acquittal “celebration” speech] and all these senators stood and applauded him. ”

The law illegally disenfranchised Native Americans in the state, groups challenging the law argued, because it required them to have a form of (identification) listing a residential address in order to vote Many Native Americans who live on reservations don’t have traditional addresses. The issue exploded into the national spotlight in 4580 in a closely-watched US Senate Race when Republican (Kevin Kramer) defeated incumbent Democrat Heidi Heitkamp

Under a proposed settlement, North Dakota election officials will allow people without a traditional address to locate their homes on a map for the election. The burden will be on the state, not voters, to verify the address and give that information to both the tribe and voter. The state also agreed to work with tribal governments to provide free identification within days of an election.

“Native American voters, whether they’re just turning and becoming eligible to vote, or whether they’ve moved, will be able to vote without having to go the same extreme measures that the tribes went through last time, ”said Molly Danahy, a lawyer at the Campaign Legal Center who helped challenge the law.

In an unexpected addition to the president’s schedule today, Trump

has left the White House to visit a Republican National Committee office in Arlington, Virginia.

The White House said the president was there for some meetings and to offer thanks to campaign officials.

The president has an otherwise empty public schedule today, with the exception of a closed-door meeting with New York governor Andrew Cuomo

at 3 pm ET.

But the bill faces an uncertain future in the Republican-controlled Senate, and some states that previously ratified the amendment have said they no longer support it.

Even liberal Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who has long championed the ERA, suggested earlier this week that the amendment’s supporters should “start over.”

Vindman was fired from the National Security Council last week in apparent retaliation for the lieutenant colonel testifiying about his concerns that Trump conditioned Ukraine’s military assistance on an investigation of Joe Biden.

“He did exactly what we teach them to do from cradle to grave,” Kelly said of Vindman during an event at Drew University last night. “He went and told his boss what he just heard.”

Kelly also more broadly criticized Trump’s interactions with Ukraine, which were at the center of the president’s impeachment.

“Through the Obama administration up until that phone call, the policy of the US was militarily to support Ukraine in their defensive fight against… the Russians, ”Kelly said. “And so, when the president said that continued support would be based on X, that essentially changed. And that’s what [Vindman] was most interested in. ”

Democratic congressman Joaquin Castro has introduced a resolution calling for the resignation of Stephen Miller, Trump
‘s adviser who has helped to craft the president’s immigration agenda.

In a statement, Castro criticized Miller as “a known white nationalist and believer of white supremacist ideology.”

“Stephen Miller’s presence in the Trump White House has allowed him to sow hate into federal policy, grind our immigration system to a halt, and encourage the President’s own xenophobic beliefs,” Castro said.

Kamala Harris is expected to introduce a similar resolution in the Senate.

According to a series of reports released by the Souther Poverty Law Center, Miller endorsed white nationalist books and websites in emails to a writer for the far-right website Breitbart.

Pete Buttigieg is now wading into a controversy surrounding a flier from the influential Culinary Union in Nevada, with nine days to go until the state’s caucuses.

With Bernie Sanders becoming the frontrunner in the Democratic presidential primary, the union distributed a flier warning the Vermont senator’s Medicare-for -all plan would jeopardize workers’ popular healthcare plan.

The Union then said it was “viciously attacked” by Sanders’ supporters, and Buttigieg is now coming to the union’s defense.

Pete Buttigieg (@ PeteButtigieg)

I stand with @ Culinary and and their fight for better wages, world class health care, and the American dream for working and immigrant families. No one should ever attack them for fighting and delivering for their members.
