Elizabeth Warren becomes first 2020 candidate to call for Trump's impeachment
The Massachusetts senator is the most senior Democrat to call for the start of impeachment proceedings against TrumpWarren's remarks make her one of the most prominent Democratic voices to advocate for impeachment. Photograph: Yuri Gripas/ReutersElizabeth Warren on Friday became the most senior Democrat, and the first 2020 presidential candidate, to call for the start of impeachment proceedings against Donald Trump following the release of the special counsel's report on Russian interference in the 2016 US election and the Trump campaign. "To ignore a president's repeated efforts to obstruct an investigation into his own disloyal behavior would inflict great and lasting damage on this country, and it would suggest that both the current and future presidents would be free to abuse their power in similar ways," the Democratic senator from Massachusetts said in a statement Friday, one day after the release of a redacted version of a 448-page summary of Robert Mueller's nearly two-year investigation."The severity of this misconduct demands that elected officials in both parties set aside political considerations and do their constitutional duty. That means the House should initiate impeachment proceedings against the president of the United States," Warren said. Mueller put the next step in the hands of Congress: "Congress has authority to prohibit a President's corrupt use of his authority in order to protect the integrity of the administration of justice." The correct process for

Iconic Salt Lake Temple closing for major 4-year renovation
An iconic temple central to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints faith will close for four years for a major renovation to help it withstand earthquakes and be more welcoming to visitors, leaders said Friday. The Salt Lake Temple will close Dec. 29 to update the stately granite building and surrounding square, including elements that emphasize the life of Jesus Christ, church President Russell M. Nelson said. The building and square at the heart of Utah's capital city is one of the state's top tourist destinations, though only church members in good standing can go inside the building used for marriages and other religious ceremonies.

China's Nightmare: How the U.S. Navy Could Sink Its Prized Aircraft Carriers
That's a rough analogy to today. Fortress China is festooned with airfields and mobile antiship weaponry able to strike hundreds of miles out to sea. Yes, the U.S. Navy remains stronger than the PLA Navy in open-sea battle. A fleet-on-fleet engagement isolated from shore-based reinforcements would probably go America's way. But that hypothetical result may not make much difference since the two navies are more likely to join battle in confined Asian waters than on the open ocean.Ah, yes, the "carrier-killer." China is forever touting the array of guided missiles its weaponeers have devised to pummel U.S. Navy nuclear-powered aircraft carriers (CVNs). Most prominent among them are its DF-21D and DF-26 antiship ballistic missiles (ASBMs), which the People's Liberation Army (PLA) has made a mainstay of China's anti-access/area-denial (A2/AD) defenses.(This first appeared several years ago.)Beijing has made believers of important audiences, including the scribes who toil away at the Pentagon producing estimates of Chinese martial might. Indeed, the most recent annual report on Chinese military power states matter-of-factly that the PLA can now use DF-21Ds to "attack ships, including aircraft carriers," more than nine hundred statute miles from China's shorelines.

Trump ordered Michael Flynn to find Clinton's emails during campaign, Mueller report finds
Donald Trump ordered the man who would later serve briefly as his national security adviser, Michael Flynn, to find thousands of missing emails from Hillary Clinton's computer server at the height of the 2016 presidential campaign, the special counsel's report revealed on Thursday.The episode is among the closest that investigators came to uncovering an instance in which Mr Trump himself appeared to use whatever means necessary to locate the messages.However, it stops short of saying he encouraged a breach of his opponent's computers, networks or email accounts.Trump had insisted at the time that he was only joking when he encouraged Russian hackers to find and disclose 30,000 deleted emails from Ms Clinton's servers.But behind the scenes, Trump was serious, according to the report by special counsel Robert Mueller.It said that Mr Flynn, by then a retired three-star Army intelligence officer, told the investigators "that Trump made this request repeatedly, and Flynn subsequently contacted multiple people in an effort to obtain the emails".As it turned out, Russia's military intelligence unit and supporters of Mr Trump's campaign had — apparently independently — sought the email trove, convinced that it contained embarrassing material that could prove decisive on election day.Ms Clinton's use of a private email server while she was secretary of state had been the focus of a lengthy investigation by the FBI, and Mr Trump, calling his campaign opponent "Cr
