Top of the Fold

  • Saudi Arabia and Israeli leaders reportedly in secret talks (Washington Times)

The lowdown: “A Gulfstream private jet secretly ferried Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to a precedent-shattering meeting with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman over the weekend, the latest in a series of U.S.-brokered breakthroughs that could re-write the strategic map of the Middle East. … The hard-charging Saudi crown prince has long been seen as one ready to break with the oil-rich kingdom’s traditional policies, but was reportedly being held back by the more cautious King Salman.”

  • Dianne Feinstein out as Judiciary Committee top Democrat over handling of Barrett hearing (Washington Times)

Memory refresher: “The 87-year-old senator had been derided by progressives by not taking a harder line against the nomination of Justice Amy Coney Barrett, drawing fire particularly for her praise of Chairman Lindsey Graham’s handling of the hearings and for giving the South Carolina Republican a hug.”
