Slideshow ( 5 images )PHNOM PENH (Reuters) - For some, a post-lockdown group activity that combines exercise with alcohol may seem like the ideal coronavirus stress-buster - though yoga purists should probably avoid Phnom Penh’s TwoBirds Craft Beer brewery while it’s taking place. The brewery’s yoga classes, resumed after a six-week lockdown across Cambodia - which has officially recorded not a single COVID death - was lifted on Jan. 1, combine holding a pose with clutching a beer, and they’re attracting devotees. “I have more fun with beer yoga. Its creation attributed to a stunt at America’s Burning Man festival in 2013, beer yoga has since enjoyed sporadic popularity in different parts of the world. “It’s not like a real yoga practise, it’s more like a gathering with friends, incorporating yoga moves for entertainment,” said instructor Anna, who arrived in Cambodia about two months ago.

"I will be back in some form," President Donald Trump pledged as he departed Joint Base Andrews for Palm Beach on his last Air Force One ride. Instead, in recent weeks, Trump has shared weird, listless, and overly-long web video statements — too unfocused to shift attention and change the conversation. Trump is very unpopular, and Republicans will call a continued focus on him "divisive" because it will divide the Republican party. And while Trump could re-center himself by running for president again, I don't think he will. But even if he avoids criminal trouble, Trump is already mightily resisting the label that he is a loser.

The second impeachment of President Donald Trump has concluded, not with a bang, but with a whimper. What is needed, rather, is criminal prosecution. Trump previously suffered impeachment for deploying unlawful means to remain in power — using his office to leverage Ukraine to investigate then-Democratic opponent Joe Biden’s family. That impeachment did not deter Trump from abusing his power again, nor should we believe that this one will deter anyone else. By imposing a personal and direct punishment upon Trump, criminal prosecution will force future leaders to think twice about threatening that essential precondition of any functional republic: the peaceful transfer of power.

Had Trump once stepped out of character on something big and hard that challenged his base and surprised us on the upside, like on climate or immigration, I’d have praised that, too. Too bad, because as journalists and as citizens, we live for surprises on the upside from our leaders. I have been watching Mitt Romney repeatedly put his oath to defend the Constitution ahead of his party and personal political interests. Liz Cheney just totally surprised me on the upside last week by putting country and Constitution before party and personal ambition and voting to impeach Trump. It is your duty to fortify your own house so that you may be a house of refuge in times of organization.

President Donald Trump retains overwhelming support from Republican voters in the final days of his term, an NBC News poll conducted after a mob of his supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol shows. Eighty-nine percent of Republicans said they approved of Trump before the election, compared to 87% in the most recent poll. The numbers show that Trump continues to have a strong hold on the loyalty of Republican voters even on his way out the door. Among Republicans who primarily support Trump, his job approval stands at 98%. While Trump's support among voters remains essentially constant, a growing number of prominent Republicans have publicly broken with him since the attacks on the Capitol.

Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar responded on Twitter Saturday, saying that they had a stockpile of second doses that were released toward the end of December. The HHS chief said that the announcement this week "was that we are releasing the remaining reserved second doses according to the established cadence—ensuring second doses would be available at the right interval—and that going forward we'd no longer have a reserve of second doses." That will allow Biden to increase the number of key resources that will strengthen the supply of doses, Klain said. The Biden administration will ramp up production of those necessary syringes to access the extra doses, Klain said on Sunday. "The feasibility of his goal is absolutely clear," Fauci said of 100 million doses in 100 days.

Raskin called the Jan. 6 Capitol riots "the most dangerous crime by a president ever committed against the United States." "I did it really with my son in my heart, and helping lead the way," Raskin said. "I'm not going to lose my son at the end of 2020 and lose my country and my republic in 2021," he said.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democratic President-elect Joe Biden on Saturday nominated U.S. foreign policy veteran Wendy Sherman, a key negotiator of the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, to be the No. From 1993 to 1996 she served as assistant secretary of state for legislative affairs. Nuland, a former assistant secretary of state for European affairs, served as deputy national security adviser to then-Vice President Dick Cheney from 2003 to 2005 and as chief of staff to the deputy secretary of state from 1993 to 1996. Biden also nominated one of his long-time foreign policy advisers, Brian McKeon, to be Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources. The Senate Foreign Relations Committee will hold a confirmation hearing on Tuesday for Antony Blinken, Biden’s nominee to be Secretary of State.

Mr. Trump has talked to advisers about his contempt for Ms. Cheney in the days since the vote and expressed his glee about the backlash she is enduring in her home state. Privately, Republican officials concerned about possible campaigns for higher office by some of the high-profile backbenchers in the House who have railed against the election results and propagated fringe conspiracy theories. Among those figures are Representatives Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, Lauren Boebert of Colorado and Andy Biggs of Arizona. All three states have Senate seats and governorships up for election in 2022. Just as striking, a number of mainline conservatives in the House are speaking openly about how much Mr. Trump damaged himself in the aftermath of the election, culminating with his role in inspiring the riots.

Republican senators who voted to acquit Trump in February — in a hollowed-out trial without witnesses — misread the president, completely seemingly convinced that impeachment alone might temper his actions. Trump’s Senate enablers allowed Trump to escape the consequences of his abuse of power by their near-unanimous vote to acquit last February. If the Senate convicts Trump, a simple Senate majority can bar him from ever again holding any federal office. And unlike Trump, Nixon resigned when Republican congressional leaders told him that he would likely be convicted in a Senate impeachment trial. Duty demands that he be convicted by the Senate and, by a Senate vote, barred from ever again holding the power of the presidency.

That means the trial will not effectively start until after Mr. Biden is sworn in on Wednesday, officials involved in the planning said. The latter option may be more appealing to Mr. Biden, but it could undercut Democrats’ argument that Congress must move urgently to impeach and try Mr. Trump.

Mr. Trump immediately seized on the investigation, using it as evidence to his false and discredited theories of widespread voter fraud. Lawmakers hid under their desks from violent protesters after President Trump encouraged them during a rally to head to the Capitol.

But that debate turned into a rout — 197 House Republicans opposing Trump’s impeachment, versus 10 voting for it. Now 10 House Republicans supporting their president’s impeachment wasn’t insignificant: It’s more than the House Democratic defections in Bill Clinton’s impeachment (five) and House GOP defections in Trump’s first impeachment (zero). But as impeachment moves to a Senate trial, the question we have: Are 10 House GOP defections worth 20 Senate GOP defections? Eight out of 10: The number of House Republicans voting for impeachment whose congressional districts were won by Donald Trump. 1: The number of House Republicans voting for impeachment who also objected to certification of the electoral votes last week.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican, rejected Democratic calls for a quick impeachment trial, saying there was no way to finish it before Trump leaves office. That raised the prospect of a bitter trial in the Senate during Biden’s first days in the White House, something he urged Senate leaders to avoid. SENATE TRIALUnder the Constitution, impeachment in the House triggers a trial in the Senate. McConnell has said no trial could begin until the Senate was scheduled to be back in regular session on Tuesday, the day before Biden’s inauguration. TRUMP TAKES NO RESPONSIBILITYIn a video statement released after Wednesday’s vote, Trump did not mention impeachment and took no responsibility for his remarks to supporters last week, but condemned the violence.

In an emotional debate before the 232-197 vote, 10 Republicans joined the majority Democrats in supporting impeachment. Multiple Republicans defended Trump’s remarks as protected by the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which defends free speech. The swift impeachment, one week after the riot, is very unlikely to lead to Trump’s ouster before Biden takes office on Jan. 20. But even if he has left the White House, the Senate could convict Trump and then vote to ban him from running for office again. FIRST AMENDMENT DEFENSEUnder the Constitution, impeachment in the House triggers a trial in the Senate.

“The party is going to be totally broken” if it abandons Trump, Foster says, predicting Trump loyalists will spin off into a new third party. And the choice confronting party leaders as they ponder a renewed impeachment effort – whether to continue backing Trump or make him a pariah – will almost certainly cost the party voters it needs to win future elections, Republican party officials and strategists say. ‘GET OVER IT’Trump has at times been defiant amid the blowback from the Capitol riot. “The president defeated the Republican establishment in 2016 – the Republican Party, in terms of the voters, the movement, is very representative of the president’s agenda,” says Boris Epshteyn, a strategic advisor to Trump. It allowed Trump’s Republican critics to say, “we told you so - Trump is a threat,” Bruesewitz says.

Widen After Impeachment Vote Some House Republicans have called on Representative Liz Cheney to resign from her leadership post after she voted to impeach President Trump. Representative Liz Cheney had issued a scathing statement the day before the impeachment vote repudiating President Trump. Mr. Biden will detail his proposal, which he and his economic team have been honing for weeks, in an evening speech in Delaware. “This nation also remains in the grip of a deadly virus and a reeling economy,” Mr. Biden said Wednesday. Far more of a party institutionalist, Mr. Biden has promised to rebuild state parties and deepen investments in the committee.

Senate Plans Trial for Trump as G.O.P. Weighs Risks of Convicting

That means the trial will not effectively start until after Mr. Biden is sworn in on Wednesday, officials involved in the planning said. Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California has discretion over when to transmit the article of impeachment, formally initiating the Senate proceeding. With Republicans fractured after the president’s bid to overturn the election inspired a rampage, many of them were trying to gauge the dynamics of a vote to convict Mr. Trump. Ms. Cheney had joined nine other members of the party who voted with Democrats to charge the president with “incitement of insurrection.”Most Senate Republicans stayed publicly silent about their positions. But Senator Lisa Murkowski, Republican of Alaska and one of the president’s leading critics, signaled on Thursday that she was among a small group in her party so far considering convicting Mr. Trump.
