There is no reason for the judge to recuse himself. The very idea is ridiculous. There again, Trump’s lawyers are infamous for being shameless and/or incompetent. It is to be hoped that their attempts to delay, if not derail, the process will meet with a swift and clear rejection.

Well done for having Secretary Griswold on the show. She answered Honig's questions concisely and thoroughly. She stole the show.

The task of an analyst is to examine, explain, and interpret. Koenig's commentary falls piteously short. The availability of an opposing argument does NOT undermine Sec Bellows's decision.

Haberman didn't add "important context" or any substance to the discussion. She trades in tittle-tattle.

Every point made by Wray and Koenig was addressed at length in the Colorado decision. Every single point. Knee-jerk reactions sampled from a Colorado café are fine. Superficial responses from legal analysts, not so much.

The coverage from Gaza is important. With all due respect to Ms Ward, however, this is not a "new chapter unfold[ing]", unless by that is meant increasing acknowledgement that Palestinians are suffering, too.
