Dispute over rules erupts on impeachment's first full dayA rancorous dispute over rules marked the first full day of President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial. A proposal by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell would have imposed a tight two-day schedule for opening arguments by each side. The plan, an apparent bid by McConnell to get the trial moving quickly, also would have forced senators to vote affirmatively to consider evidence compiled by the House during its impeachment proceedings.

Supreme Court stays out of dispute over grand jury secrecy

Supreme Court stays out of dispute over grand jury secrecyThe Supreme Court refused Tuesday to get involved in a dispute about judges’ authority to order the disclosure of secret grand jury material in rare circumstances. The court turned away an appeal from an 82-year-old researcher who is seeking grand jury records from the late 1950s. The justices’ order does not affect an ongoing court battle over House Democrats’ quest for access to grand jury materials from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

Democrats Threaten to Skip Next Week's Debate Over Union Dispute

Democrats Threaten to Skip Next Week's Debate Over Union Dispute(Bloomberg) — All of the Democratic presidential candidates who have qualified for next week’s debate say they will skip the event rather than cross a planned picket line at the venue.The seven candidates — Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Amy Klobuchar, Tom Steyer and Andrew Yang — all said Friday that they will not show up for the debate at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles on December 19 if the Unite Here Local 11 goes forward with its protest of food service contractor Sodexo SA.The union, which represents about 150 Sodexo employees at the LMU campus, reached out to the campaigns on Friday to inform them they planned to demonstrate. The union and the food-services company have been negotiating for months but their talks stalled this week.This is the second labor issue to complicate plans for the December debate. It had been slated for the University of California at Los Angeles’s Luskin School of Public Affairs. But the Democratic National Committee asked the debate’s media sponsors to find a new location because the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees asked the candidates to boycott it over a contract dispute involving patient care workers at the university’s hospital system.A DNC official who asked not to be identified said the party was looking into the dispute and a potential change of venue but had learned of the issue only after Unite Here’s outreach to the campaigns.“The DNC should find a solution that lives up to our party’s commitment to fight for working people,” Warren wrote on Twitter. “I will not cross the union’s picket line even if it means missing the debate.”Biden said he would not cross a picket line and had to stand with the union’s members “for affordable health care and fair wages.”(Michael Bloomberg is also seeking the Democratic presidential nomination. Bloomberg is the founder and majority owner of Bloomberg LP, the parent company of Bloomberg News.)(Updates first three paragraphs with all candidates threatening to skip.)To contact the reporters on this story: Ryan Teague Beckwith in New York at rbeckwith3@bloomberg.net;Jennifer Epstein in Washington at jepstein32@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Wendy Benjaminson at wbenjaminson@bloomberg.net, Max BerleyFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

Gulf dispute unacceptable, must be resolved: Kuwaiti emir

Gulf dispute unacceptable, must be resolved: Kuwaiti emirA damaging 30-month-old dispute between Qatar and its Gulf neighbours “is no longer acceptable” and must be resolved, Kuwait’s Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad Al-Sabah said Tuesday. Addressing the opening session of parliament’s new term, Sheikh Sabah said the Saudi-led boycott has greatly weakened the unity of the six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) in which Qatar and its foes are members. GCC members Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, in addition to Egypt, imposed a sea, land and air boycott of Qatar in June 2017 accusing it of ties to radical groups.
