Kobe was so much more than an athlete, he was a family man. That was what we had most in common. I would hug his children like they were my own and he would embrace my kids like they were his. His baby girl Gigi was born on the same day as my youngest daughter Me’Arah. pic.twitter.com/BHBPN5Wq8V

I think at the end of our lives, we’ll be judge by how we treat those closest to us, particularly our children.
There’s no doubt that Kobe loved his children and was a loving father.
This will be a lasting image. pic.twitter.com/edRO92YRKs

Kobe was a legend on the court and just getting started in what would have been just as meaningful a second act. To lose Gianna is even more heartbreaking to us as parents. Michelle and I send love and prayers to Vanessa and the entire Bryant family on an unthinkable day.

New revelations from John Bolton, former White House national security adviser, could complicate President Trump’s impeachment trial. Here are the key takeawayshttps://t.co/TioAJJN7zi

#BoltonBook draft strongly suggests Attorney General #Barr LIED about at least when and how he knew Trump mentioned him on the call with Zelenskyy.👇
Raises again issues of Barr's ethical failure to recuse from whistle blower complaint, criminal referrals to DOJ, and more. pic.twitter.com/6YT1A2hyoD

So Pompeo knew the campaign against Yovanovitch was bogus all along and still wouldn't defend her. Maybe that's why the NPR interview the other day struck such a nerve. pic.twitter.com/VDn7OgoWGV

Key point. I wonder how senators who take umbrage at being insulted feel about being misled or outright lied to by the White House—on the floor of the Senate? https://t.co/oE2ChxarlI

It is easy to imagine that the news about the Bolton book will not turn a substantial number of Senate Republicans, even in favor of hearing witnesses. In fact, they might even double down to bring this impeachment to an end sooner.

Seems like other officials would do well to follow Bolton’s lead. If you have important information, you’d better get it out before the Senate votes. Or else, you’ll be known as part of the cover up. Bolton clearly didn’t want to be in that position.

Elsewhere in the daily shitshow that is Trumpworld…
The Veterans of Foreign Wars, the oldest major U.S. veterans group, has called for Trump to apologize for "misguided" remarks minimizing the severity of traumatic brain injuries suffered by U.S. forces in an Iranian air attack earlier this month.https://t.co/aa5duEzdBF

On CBS, @SenTomCotton defends Trump downplaying traumatic brain injuries suffered by US troops as mere "headaches," saying, "he's not dismissing their injuries, he's describing their injuries."

It’s looking increasingly unlikely that the new coronavirus can be contained largely in China, which means governments are going to have to start preparing for the possibility of global transmission, experts say. https://t.co/MBjPy8K2Xy
