Why Nixon matters in the era of Donald Trump

  
It begins with a break-in at Democratic Party headquarters. There are protests in the streets. War with the press. A megalomaniacal Republican president, elected by an aggrieved minority of the American electorate, sacks the officers leading the investigation of his campaign's links to the crime. There are cries of "Cover up!" A special prosecutor is appointed. And a bill of impeachment, alleging that the president has obstructed justice, is filed in the US House of Representatives. As that notable American philosopher, catcher Yogi Berra of the New York Yankees, is said to have said: "It's déjà vu all over again." And yet there are important differences in the seemingly parallel sagas of Richard Nixon and Donald Trump. And how they are resolved may ultimately determine if Trump meets Nixon's fate, and how America proceeds. Analogies have limits. If history sometimes rhymes, it never faultlessly repeats. There are always wrinkles, and in the creases sometimes lie the most revealing lessons The catastrophic Watergate break-in, of course, involved flesh-and-blood burglars; bumblers in suits and rubber gloves, caught by police at Democratic headquarters. Their bungling brought nothing to Nixon but woe. The 2015 Russian rifling of the Democratic Party's computers is quite a different story, with quite differing results. That break-in, and the subsequent dispersal of damaging material, was conducted by offshore hackers, allegedly in concert with a foreign power, with as-yet unknown assistance from American confederates. And, unlike Nixon and his burglars, Russian President Vladimir Putin has gained much from this digital coup de main: Trump's election; Hillary Clinton's humiliating defeat and, if not yet the fatal undermining of Nato, then at least the fulfilment of the old naval toast: "Confusion to our enemies!" So, analogies have limits. If history sometimes rhymes, it never faultlessly repeats. There are always wrinkles, and in the creases sometimes lie the most revealing lessons. The Left, especially, should remember this. White House of ill repute: President Nixon became the first president in US country to resign, In August 1974 Credit: Bettmann/ Bettmann US liberals are giddy at last week's revelations that three Trump confidantes – his son Donald Jr, son-in-law Jared Kushner and top campaign strategist, Paul Manafort – met with a lawyer they'd been told was an agent of the Russian leadership, conveying a pail of mud to cast at Mrs Clinton. Amid fevered talk of treason, an article of impeachment was introduced by Representative Brad Sherman, a Democrat from California and, in this era of instant gratification, it was widely predicted in the precincts of the Left that Congress would act, and act quickly. Ding, dong, the witch seemed dead. Not so fast. For there are numbers to keep in mind as one compares Trump's troubles to those of Richard Nixon. There are numbers to keep in mind as one compares Trump's troubles to those of Richard Nixon - such as 67, the number of senators that it takes to convict a US president and drive him from office Begin with 67. That is the number of senators – two-thirds of the 100-member body – that it takes to convict a US president and drive him from office. It's a tough nut, especially now, as there are 54 Republican senators in control of the chamber, part of the biggest congressional majority that the Republicans have enjoyed since before the Great Depression. Trump's party rules Congress; in Nixon's years in office, it was his foes. The arithmetic in the House is different. A simple majority is all that's required to impeach a chief executive, and send him to a Senate trial. Yet House Republicans now hold a 240-194 edge. Trump on Don Jr: 'Anyone would have taken that meeting' 01:21 Nixon, of course, was not impeached. Before the House could vote, he resigned. And the two US presidents who were impeached – Bill Clinton in 1998 and Andrew Johnson in 1868 – survived their Senate trials. In bot

NASA video lets you soar over Pluto, and it's pretty amazing

  
Want to know what Pluto's terrain looks like? Spoiler alert: It's really cool. Using data from the New Horizons spacecraft and digital elevation models of both the planet and its largest moon, Charon, scientists were able to develop these awesome flyover movies. SEE ALSO: NASA's newest treasure trove of alien planets will help us find our place in the galaxy A flight over Pluto shows the highlands and the planet's nitrogen icy plain, Sputnik Planitia. Viewers then get to see the planet's mountain ranges, the highlands of Voyager Terra, and Pioneer Terra. It eventually concludes over Tartarus Dorsa. The view itself is pretty spectacular, but it also gives us a newer, more unique perspective on Pluto's terrain. And that isn't all, either. There's also a flight over Charon that shows the Serenity Chasma canyon, and the Dorothy Gale crater. Viewers also get a glimpse of the plains of Vulcan Planum and the "moated mountains" of Clarke Montes. The New Horizons spacecraft made its flight around Pluto on July 14, 2015. It was the first time scientists were able to get up-close photos of Pluto, and collect data. To celebrate the anniversary, scientists released detailed maps of both Pluto and Charon.

PSA: You might want to look up at the sky on Sunday night

  
If you're free on Sunday night and you live within a certain range of northern latitudes, you might want to look out a window. Meteorologists are predicting an aurora borealis, or northern lights show. Do you live where the #Aurora may be visible Sunday night?Don't forget to check the cloud forecast! https://t.co/VyWINDk3xP #AuroraBorealis pic.twitter.com/gmggkmScDv — NWS (@NWS) July 14, 2017 The northern lights are the result of our sun's solar storms, which emit streams of charged particles that can reach Earth. Magnetic fields from the north and south poles pull the particles into the upper or occasionally lower atmosphere, where they collide with neutral particles. The result? A majestic, glowing sky. Oftentimes, the northern lights are only visible at higher latitudes (like in Scandinavia during the summer), but occasionally — as is the case this time, apparently — they'll reach lower down the northern hemisphere. The southern hemisphere can get light shows too, but those southern lights are called aurora australis. If you look at the National Weather Service's map of the upcoming aurora borealis, you can see if the lights are expected to be visible from where you are. Parts of New England, the upper Midwest, the northwest, and Canada should definitely be able to see the lights on Sunday. WATCH: These tiny foods look just like the real thing......

Democrats turn focus on Jared Kushner as they scent blood amid drip, drip, drip of Russia scandal

  
Last week, Jared Kushner and his wife Ivanka Trump were hobnobbing with technology titans and billionaires, including Jeff Bezos and Warren Buffett, at an annual conference for the global elite put on by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen in Sun Valley, Idaho. For America's foremost power couple it was a welcome retreat from Washington, where a full-scale Democratic assault on the pair has reached fever pitch. Mr Kushner, in particular, has become the focus of a concerted, multi-pronged attempt to claim a senior White House scalp. Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer at the centre of the past week's revelations Credit: Kommersant Mr Kushner is the only serving member of the Trump administration who was present at a meeting between Donald Trump Jr, the president's son, Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, and former Soviet intelligence officer Rimat Akhmetshin at Trump Tower in New York on June 9 2016. All week, revelations have intensified the pressure on Mr Trump's core team. On Saturday it emerged that eight people were present at the meeting, including an unnamed translator and a member of the prominent Russian family who had asked the meeting to be set up. An email chain revealed the meeting was brokered by Rob Goldstone, a British publicist, who said his client had damaging information on the Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton as part of a Russian government effort to help Mr Trump's campaign. Mr Trump Jr was eager to accept. Mr Kushner and then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort also attended. Trump on Don Jr: 'Anyone would have taken that meeting' 01:21 Mr Trump Jr has said the meeting quickly turned to the Magnitsky Act, a 2012 law that imposed sanctions on some Russian citizens for alleged rights violations. The law so infuriated Moscow that it imposed a ban on Americans adopting Russian children. The presence of Mr Akhmetshin was a clear sign of how hard Moscow was pushing to gain influence and persuade Mr Trump to drop sanctions against Russians contained in the Magnitsky Act, according to Bill Browder, whose campaigning led to the sanctions and who is due to give evidence to the Senate judiciary committee next week. "Basically, it only makes it more clear that the Russians were trying as hard as they could to pursue the agenda of getting rid of the Magnitsky Act," he said. But the meeting, and the email chain that set it up, has raised serious questions about potential coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign. Donald Trump Jr Credit: AP While critics initially focused on Mr Trump Jr, who does not hold a position at the White House, it is Mr Kushner who could ultimately pay a higher price. Crucially, he twice failed to disclose the meeting on application forms for security clearance that he was requested to submit as a government employee. Intentionally concealing or falsifying information on the forms, known as SF-86s, is a criminal offence punishable by up to five years in jail. While Mr Kushner's lawyers have indicated it was an innocent omission Democrats scent blood. One senior Democrat said: "He watched his father-in-law on television say no one in the campaign talked to the Russian government. He knew that was false." Jared Kushner speaks: is this what you were expecting? 00:55 The omission has also presented an opening for Democrats to target Ivanka Trump, who is employed by her father as a White House senior adviser. The SF-86 asks whether "you, or any member of your immediate family, in the past seven years, had any contact with a foreign government, or its representatives, whether inside or outside the US?". Immediate family includes spouses. "Has she (Ivanka Trump) updated her security clearance paperwork to reflect this and other meetings which Jared Kushner failed to disclose?" a senior Democrat said. A White House spokeswoman said attacks on the couple were "ridiculous" and an example of "Democrats playing political games". But it was part of a wider campaign targeting Mr Kus

Oregon highway 'slimed' as eels from overturned lorry cover cars with gooey mess

  
An Oregon highway got "slimed" on Thursday when a truck hauling eels overturned and turned the coastal road into a gooey mess. Oregon State Police on Thursday posted a photo on Twitter that showed damaged cars covered by the slimey eels. The agency also posed the question: "What to tell the £drycleaner?" Meanwhile, the Depoe Bay Fire Department posted a video of workers using a bulldozer to clear the eels from Highway 101. A state police officer works the site after a truck hauling eels overturned on Highway 101 in Depoe Bay Credit: AP "HWY 101 mp 131 just got slimed. Fortunately no injuries," it said. Police said Salvatore Tragale was driving north with 13 containers holding 7,500 pounds (3,402 kilograms) of hagfish, which are commonly known as slime eels. As Tragale approached road construction and tried to stop, one container flew off the truck bed and into the southbound lane, while the other containers spilled onto the highway, police said. The truck was carrying 13 containers holding 7,500 pounds of hagfish, which are commonly known as slime eels Credit: AP The flying container hit one vehicle which then caused it and four other vehicles to be pushed into each other. Police said the people in the vehicle hit by the container suffered minor injuries. No one else was injured. When hagfish become stressed, they secrete a slime, which can be seen in the photos on the vehicles and on the highway, police said.

N. Korea likely has more plutonium than previously thought: monitor

  
New images of North Korea's main nuclear facility show that the isolated regime has apparently produced more plutonium for its weapons programme than previously thought, a US monitor said, as tensions soar over Pyongyang's ambitions. The respected 38 North website, a monitoring project linked to Johns Hopkins university, said Friday that thermal imagery of the Yongbyon nuclear complex appeared to show that Pyongyang had reprocessed spent fuel rods at least twice between last September and June this year. "The Radiochemical Laboratory operated intermittently and there have apparently been at least two unreported reprocessing campaigns to produce an undetermined amount of plutonium that can further increase North Korea's nuclear weapons stockpile," it said.......

Congrats to this clever mama raccoon who broke into a car to give birth

  
No one wants their car broken into, but sometimes you gotta give credit where credit is due. Consider, for example, this mother raccoon, who climbed through a plastic window cover and tumbled into the backseat of a parked convertible at an auto shop so she could safely give birth to her kits. She was later relocated by Devon of Wildlife, Inc. Rescue and Rehabilitation Center in Manatee, Florida. SEE ALSO: Pelican in a cop car wants you to know this isn't what it looks like "I captured the mother, then 2 caring employees and I searched the entire car for her babies," Devon wrote in a Facebook post. "Once they were both accounted for, I relocated them to some woods where she can continue to raise them." According to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune , the second kit — who is good at sneaking around, just like its mom — was hidden in the trunk. Raccoon litters are usually between three and five kits, so there's a good chance the mother was still pregnant when she was relocated. Perhaps she'll choose a less, er, spoken-for place next time. Might we suggest a nice tree cavity? WATCH: An iceberg the size of Delaware broke off Antarctica......

Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo's ashes buried at sea

  
The ashes of China's late Nobel laureate Liu Xiaobo were buried at sea on Saturday, depriving his supporters of a place to pay tribute to the pro-democracy dissident. Officials showed a video in which his wife, Liu Xia, and relatives lowered a white round urn into the water off northeast coast city of Dalian, two days after the democracy advocate died of liver cancer aged 61 while in custody. Officials "fear that if someone who is as emblematic a symbol as Liu Xiaobo had a burial ground, it would become a place where his supporters would gather on his memorial day, the day he received the Nobel or any other such occasions to express their desire to chase after freedom," activist and family friend Ye Du told AFP.......

Couple seeks photographer to capture every aspect of their wedding day, including the night...

  
One betrothed couple really wants to document every aspect of their wedding day. And we mean every aspect. SEE ALSO: Woman's dinosaur in lingerie photoshoot is Tyrannosaurus Sexy A couple from Madison, Wisconsin, posted an ad on Craigslist in search for someone who can photograph their special day, and then some. They asked for a photographer to capture the whole of the wedding and the post-nuptial coitus. But that's not the only, er, interesting thing about this request. Not only will it be their first night together as a married couple, but it will be their first time having sex period. Image: Craigslist They make a good point. It's probably going to be awkward no matter what, so why not throw a third party into the mix to provide photographic evidence? That way you can look back and see how much you've grown as a couple. Also, when you are old and wrinkly you can be reminded of when you were in your prime. Look, if you've ever sent a unsolicited dick pic you have no right to judge. We wish them the best — in finding a photographer and with the sex stuff. WATCH: This robot that can do 'the worm' could one day perform colonoscopies......
