Here’s what to know (and where to go) for the 2019 Women’s Marches

The third year of Women’s Marches is expected to bring thousands of protesters to cities across the US, but during the past few weeks, there’s also been controversy over leadership, an evolving agenda and inclusion.

President Trump plans ‘major announcement’ tomorrow afternoon (Update)

Westlake Legal Group Trump-announcement President Trump plans ‘major announcement’ tomorrow afternoon (Update) The Blog Government Shutdown donald trump Border wall border crisis

There has been a lot of speculation about how the government shutdown might end. One theory was that it would end with an emergency declaration by the president premised on a crisis along the southern border. That speculation may have moved one step closer to reality. A short time ago, Trump tweeted that he’d be making a big announcement about the border and the shutdown tomorrow:

That’s not much to go on and no one else is talking.

But earlier today Trump also tweeted this brief video: “Everything we’re asking for…this is what law enforcement wants,” Trump says in the clip, referencing his request for more border security. He adds, “Wait ’til you see the results. They’ll be proud of it and we’ll be even prouder.”

That certainly makes it sound as if Trump has a plan to move forward but as recently as Monday Trump said he did not want to go down the emergency declaration path. That’s because the expectation is that it won’t actually achieve anything for border security in the short term.

Trump has the authority to declare the emergency and he can use that as a justification to shuffle around several billion dollars from existing projects. But everyone anticipates that some Democratic AG will immediately file a lawsuit and the whole thing will be held up in the courts for months, possibly into 2020. So long as the funding is held up, Democrats can campaign on his failure to keep one of his major campaign promises, which is what they wanted all along.

The upside is that the declaration would make it possible for Congress to pass some funding bills (without the $5.7 billion border security money) and the government would reopen. That would presumably mean the State of the Union, scheduled for a week from Tuesday, would be back on. Democrats will spend the time between now and then declaring victory but Trump will get his chance to do the same before a larger audience at the SOTU.

This battle over the border, or at least this phase of the battle, might be ending but the war will go on. We’ll have to tune in tomorrow at 3 pm to find out what happens next.

Update: So maybe not an emergency declaration…

Shep Smith and Chris Wallace: Why haven’t any media outlets been able to corroborate BuzzFeed’s Trump story?

Westlake Legal Group w-1 Shep Smith and Chris Wallace: Why haven’t any media outlets been able to corroborate BuzzFeed’s Trump story? Trump The Blog Shepard Smith Michael Cohen journalist Jason Leopold fox news Chris Wallace Buzzfeed

Goooooood question. BuzzFeed does do plenty of worthy original reporting but you’d never have guessed that they’d be the newsroom to break a story that might lead directly to Trump’s impeachment if proved. And you’d certainly never have guessed that their sources would be so far superior to those of the New York Times, Washington Post, and Wall Street Journal that those three mega-papers would still have nothing on this mega-bombshell almost 24 hours later. You know they’re working hard to get it; you know that collectively they’re sourced to the gills in all sorts of government offices. Somehow BuzzFeed seems to have found two federal law enforcement officials who are (a) sufficiently high up to have seen evidence of the president suborning perjury, (b) willing and able to confirm that to BuzzFeed, and (c) unwilling or unable to confirm that to anyone else, so far as we know.

That is awfully strange. If the weekend passes without corroboration by any other outlets, BuzzFeed will be under a dark cloud by Monday.

On the other hand, it’s also strange that the White House has been quiet about it. Sarah Sanders finally told reporters this afternoon that the story is “categorically false,” but as I noted earlier, Hogan Gidley was reluctant to flatly deny the charges on Fox this morning. And the tweeter-in-chief has ignored the story all day (apart from an oblique reference to Cohen’s untrustworthiness) despite the fact that normally this would be primo “fake news!” material for him, especially considering BuzzFeed’s role in publicizing the Steele dossier. You can write the missing tweet yourself: “Dopey left-wing listicle site BuzzFeed pushed phony dossier to smear me, now pushing Cohen lies to smear me again! FAKE NEWS! The Chive is better!” How come he hasn’t said that?

And while we’re at it, how come Cohen himself and his (former) lawyer are so reluctant to confirm or deny?

Exit question: Can I get odds in Vegas on BuzzFeed’s story being a bust? I’m in at 2-1.

Opinion: What Vogue did to Noor Tagouri tells a bigger story

“Oh my God, I’m freaking out!” screamed Noor Tagouri in an Instagram video as she opened up the latest issue of Vogue. The magazine featured Tagouri in a full-page color photograph and the journalist was eager to see herself in print. Within moments, however, Tagouri was freaking out for another reason. The photograph was there, but it misidentified her as “Noor Bukhari” — a Pakistani actress who also wears the headscarf.
