Impeachment, Obama overreach, abortion ban, conversion therapy, Israel election, and more.

  • RUMINATING ON IMPEACHMENT: “House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says ‘nothing is off the table,’ including potential impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump. Pelosi spoke in California after special counsel Robert Mueller indicated Wednesday that it’s up to Congress to decide what to do next with his findings.” (Associated Press)

  • OBAMA OVERREACH NULLIFIED: “[Wednesday] night, in Texas v. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, a federal district court in Texas held that the Obama Administration violated the Administrative Procedure Act when it adopted a revised definition of ‘waters of the United States’ in 2015, and remanded the so-called WOTUS rule back to the federal agencies from whence it came.” (The Volokh Conspiracy)

  • COCHRAN, RIP: “Thad Cochran, a Mississippi Republican who brought Southern gentility to Washington and Washington largesse to the South over nearly four decades in the U.S. Senate, where he was a past chairman of the powerful Appropriations Committee, died May 30 in Oxford, Miss. He was 81.” (The Washington Post)

  • LOUISIANA ABORTION BAN: “The Louisiana House of Representatives passed an abortion ban on a 79-23 vote Wednesday that would prohibit women from terminating a pregnancy once a fetal heartbeat has been detected. Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards has indicated he will break with his party and sign the ban if it crosses his desk.” (NBC News)

  • GEORGIA FALLOUT: “Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos vowed to ‘rethink’ the company’s investments in Georgia if the state’s recently passed ban on abortions past the point where a fetal heartbeat can be detected is not ultimately struck down by the courts,” National reviews reports. Similarly, according to Reuters, “Walt Disney Co Chief Executive Bob Iger … [said] it would be ‘very difficult’ for the media company to keep filming in Georgia if a new abortion law takes effect because many people will not want to work in the U.S. state.”

  • TROUBLE IN ISRAEL: “Exactly one month after the 21st Knesset was sworn in, a majority of the Knesset voted late Wednesday night to disperse and initiate an unprecedented repeat election on September 17. It was the first time in Israeli history that a candidate for prime minister failed to form a coalition after being given the task by the president after an election.” (The Jerusalem Post)
