NEWSWEEK: Three of the senators who are acting as jurors in Trump's impeachment trial — Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) — brazenly met privately with Trump's impeachment lawyers to game out how his defense would go today. Transparent corruption. Why? Related: Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Missouri) refers to Trump's lawyers as being “our side.”
POLITICO: After hitching her star to Trump's wagon and gushingly praising him/providing cover for him up until CHECKS WATCH, Nikki Haley now suddenly states:

NYT: As I — and many others — said at the time, Trump really was extremely ill with COVID-19, much more so than we were told. It seems likely he would have died had he endured it earlier in the pandemic, prior to the development of a solid drug regimen to treat it.
