New York City Council member Ritchie Torres, 32, has defeated unrepentant homophobe Rubén Díaz in New York's 15th Congressional District. He — along with Mondaire Jones in New York's 17th, if results hold — will become the first gay, Black man to serve in Congress, as incumbent Jose Serrano is not running for re-election in November.

It's a thing of beauty to watch old troll Díaz asked repeatedly about getting only 15% of the vote on election night (with many more to be counted, but ...):

Trump Knows He's Losing, Fires U.S. Attorney Investigating Him And His Associates Comments (0)

On Friday night, A.G. William Barr issued a press release stating that the top federal prosecutor in Manhattan, Geoffrey S. Berman, was stepping down.

Berman retorted that it was the first he'd heard of it, and that he had no intention of resigning.

Despite the optics of a man firing the man investigating him, Trump doubled down, officially firing Berman.

Berman's top deputy, Audrey Strauss, is the acting U.S. Attorney.

Now, Trump will nominate Jay Clayton to take over — even though he has zero experience as a prosecutor. But he's chairman of the SEC, and is unlikely to pursue cases against Trump with the vigor displayed by Berman, who has successfully gone after Michael Cohen and was said to be circling Rudy Giuliani.

All of which is the say that in a normal time, Barr would be impeached and Trump would be re-impeached, but instead — just vote these assholes out and we'll re-hire everyone.
