The D.C. Attorney General’s office has notified Donald Trump Jr. that it wishes to interview him as part of a lawsuit alleging that President Trump’s 2017 inaugural committee improperly funneled money to the president’s business, an official in the attorney general’s office said Thursday.
D.C. Attorney General Karl A. Racine’s lawsuit, filed in January 2020, alleges that the Trump Inaugural Committee — a tax-exempt nonprofit — wasted $1 million of donors’ money on an overpriced, little used ballroom at the president’s D.C. hotel, and then paid a $49,000 hotel bill that should have gone to the Trump Organization.
The official in Racine’s office spoke on the condition of anonymity because the notice asking Trump Jr. to sit for a sworn deposition is not public. The official declined to say what questions investigators wanted to ask Trump Jr.
In a recent court filing, Racine’s office said that Trump Jr.’s assistant and close friend had reserved the hotel rooms at the Loews Madison Hotel that led to the $49,000 bill. After the bill went to a collections agency, the Trump Inaugural Committee paid the charge, Racine’s office said.
Racine has not said what role, if any, Trump Jr. played in that transaction.
Trump Jr. and the Trump Organization did not respond to requests for comment Wednesday.
Yang's running for NYC Mayor, with one of this policies being a UBI of sorts.Only tangentially related to the elections, but this study is fascinating:

Vancouver Gave Homeless People $5,800. It Changed Their Lives.A single infusion of cash helped recipients pay their rent, get to work — and put their lives back on track.
For Zhao, a major takeaway is the potential cost savings of a program like this for the government. Because of the reduced nights spent in emergency shelters, each cash recipient saved the government roughly $8,000 over the course of the year. Less the cost of the cash transfer, each cash recipient produced a net savings of more than $600 — and were substantially further along the path of pulling themselves out of poverty, experiencing a much more balanced life than they might have in the shelter system. While the pilot project was funded by Foundations for Social Change, which is primarily supported by foundation grants, Zhao says this evidence points to an obvious policy solution.

Bloody hell. Then, based on all the lies Trump has told, he could be impeached a few thousand times?

Trump administration slashes imperiled spotted owls’ habitat
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The Trump administration has slashed millions of acres of protected habitat for the imperiled northern spotted owl in Oregon, Washington and northern California. Much of the land is in prime timber locations in Oregon’s coastal ranges. Environmentalists on Wednesday accused the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service under President Donald Trump of taking a parting shot at protections designed to help restore the species in favor of the timber industry. Timber groups have applauded the decision and say more logging in forests is necessary to prevent wildfires. The spotted owl is listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act and has lost nearly 4% of its population each year.

Clinton's impeachment was for lying under oath and obstructing justice. I don't know whether Trump has lied under oath but it does seem likely that he instructed justice with relation to the Russia investigation, so he should have been impeached for that
