The Democrats Wimp Out on Impeachment
Win McNamee/GettyIf the House Democrats believe that simply two articles of impeachment will in any way deter Donald Trump from future misconduct and crimes, they're kidding themselves. 

Yet, there was House Judiciary Chair Jerrold Nadler declaring Tuesday morning while unveiling the articles, one for Trump's abuse of power and a second for his obstruction of Congress, "We must be clear: No one, not even the president, is above the law." That was followed by House Intelligence Committee Chair Rep. Adam Schiff making it clear why the breakneck speed to impeach Trump, "The argument, ‘why don't you just wait?' comes down to this: Why don't you just let him cheat in just one more election?"

Let's be blunt: These two articles alone will not achieve either of those goals. We all know that Trump will not be convicted and removed in the Senate, meaning Trump will claim exoneration and be even more emboldened to engage in wrongdoing. Thus, these articles of impeachment are the House Democrats' only chance to make a compelling case to the public why Trump's conduct "is a clear and present danger to our free and fair elections and to our national security," as Intelligence Committee lawyer Daniel Goldman testified Monday at the House Judiciary impeachment hearing.

Elizabeth Warren Leans Into ‘First Female President'
Photo Illustration by Kelly Caminero/The Daily BeastElizabeth Warren has intensified her first female president pitch. 

Down two women rivals and statistically wedged among a trio of men, the Massachusetts senator now finds herself as the Democratic primary's only female candidate to crack the top tier. And in recent weeks, she has embraced the possibility of becoming the first woman to occupy the White House with new fervor, giving voters a strong verbal and visual contrast to her direct competition: Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, and Pete Buttigieg. 

"It's the three B's and Elizabeth," Deborah Walsh, director of the Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers University, said. "She does, by the very nature of who she is, stand out in that group."

Indigenous Youth & Elders at COP25 Protest Canada's Support of Dirty Tar Sands Projects
Indigenous women protested outside the U.S. Embassy in Madrid, Spain, on Tuesday morning to demand action to address the crisis of missing and murdered indigenous women and girls across North America. Madrid police shut down the protest within minutes. On Monday, indigenous youth and elders gathered outside the Canadian Embassy in Madrid to protest the Canadian government's support of the Alberta tar sands extraction and new fossil fuel infrastructure, including a pipeline that would cut through indigenous lands to carry tar sands oil from Alberta to Wisconsin. We speak with one of those demonstrators: Eriel Deranger, a member of the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation and the executive director of Indigenous Climate Action. "Canada comes to these meetings touting themselves as a global leader in addressing the climate crisis, as having great relations with their indigenous peoples," she says. "But the reality is … not a single project that has ever been proposed in the Alberta tar sands has ever been denied."
