^Trump's plan to pull troops back in Syria threatens chaos in the region, sparks GOP revolt<

USTURKEY-SYRIA:LA _ President Donald Trump's decision to pull remaining U.S. troops back from northeastern Syria threatens to revive the Islamic State terrorist group and destabilize the volatile region, senior U.S. officials said Monday, while senior Republicans in Congress angrily rebuked the president as he fights an impeachment inquiry.

Trump abruptly announced the move late Sunday without consulting top Pentagon or State Department advisers.

^Trump not immune from NY demand for tax returns, judge says, but president wins delay<

TRUMP-TAXRETURNS-1ST-LEDE:BLO _ President Donald Trump's accounting firm was ordered by a federal court to turn over his tax filings and other financial records to New York state prosecutors, though the president won a last-minute delay pending an emergency appeal.

A federal judge in New York ruled early Monday that Trump can't stop his accountants, Mazars USA LLP, from turning over eight years of taxes and other financial documents to the Manhattan district attorney, who is investigating whether the Trump Organization falsified business records related to hush payments.

Trump immediately appealed and in less than two hours won a delay to give the federal appeals court in Manhattan time for expedited review.

^Trump mines weak spots in foreign leaders for battles at home<

TRUMP-FOREIGNLEADERS:BLO _ He might be fighting to salvage his presidency, but President Donald Trump can still smell weakness in others.

In his efforts to discredit his domestic enemies, Trump has solicited help from Ukraine's rookie president, a collapsing Italian government, an Australian battling China and Boris Johnson of Brexit-divided Britain. Next up could be Romania, where the prime minister's main political backer has just been sent to jail.

The result is that conversations with the U.S. leader have the potential to produce dramatic and unpredictable outcomes, one way or another.

^Trump says Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi committed 'Treason' and should be 'impeached'<

TRUMP-PELOSI-SCHIFF:LA _ President Donald Trump lashed out against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Adam Schiff, accusing them of treason and calling for their "impeachment" in a series of tweets Sunday night.

The California political leaders are leading the House Democrats' impeachment inquiry into Trump that is focused on the president's outreach to foreign governments to help him win reelection in the 2020 presidential election.

Members of the House and Senate cannot be impeached. They can, however, be expelled by a congressional vote in the applicable chamber.

USTURKEY-SYRIA-REACTION:CON _ Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said Monday he and Democratic Sen. Chris Van Hollen will introduce bipartisan sanctions against Turkey if it crosses the Syrian border and attacks Kurdish forces, after President Donald Trump said late Sunday that he was withdrawing U.S. troops from the border region.

"This decision to abandon our Kurdish allies and turn Syria over to Russia, Iran, & Turkey will put every radical Islamist on steroids. Shot in the arm to the bad guys. Devastating for the good guys," Graham tweeted.

SCOTUS-WEBSITES-ACCESSIBLE:LA _ The Supreme Court cleared the way Monday for blind people to sue Domino's Pizza and other retailers if their websites are not accessible to these people.

^Why GOP may want a House vote on impeachment inquiry and Pelosi doesn't<

IMPEACHMENT-INQUIRY-VOTE:LA _ Beneath the heated argument of whether the House should have a formal resolution to open an impeachment inquiry is a potential benefit for Republicans, if they can force a vote: the chance to subpoena their own witnesses and information.

In both the Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton impeachment inquiry resolutions, the minority party on the investigating committee was granted the power to subpoena _ something the minority party does not normally have.

^Texas Rep. Will Hurd, Republican and former CIA officer, at center of impeachment fight<

IMPEACHMENT-HURD:LA _ On a two-lane highway between Del Rio, Texas, and Eagle Pass, Republican Rep. Will Hurd shifted in the passenger seat of a small rental car. He'd folded his long frame into the tight space for the hour's drive through his massive district, which stretches along more than 800 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border. The summer heat blurred the landscape outside.

Ever since his time as an undercover officer in the CIA, where he learned how to maintain control at high speeds, Hurd said, he prefers being in the driver's seat.

"Old habits die hard, man."

A few months later and 1,700 miles away in Washington, the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump is hurtling forward with House Democrats behind the wheel. That leaves Hurd with a difficult decision: Put up roadblocks, or try to navigate?

^Trump aide calls drug price deal possible if impeachment fades<

TRUMP-DRUGPRICES:CON _ President Donald Trump's top domestic policy adviser on Monday predicted that the White House could strike a deal with House Democrats on drug prices _ if the impeachment inquiry into the president ultimately doesn't go anywhere.

Domestic Policy Council Director Joe Grogan said House Democrats deserve credit for proposing a drug price bill, which he called ambitious. But Grogan said the White House wasn't ready to issue a firm position on the bill and suggested that the Democrats were making it harder to achieve the goal while being "distracted" by impeachment.

WARREN-HEALTHCARE:BLO _ Elizabeth Warren has a plan for everything _ but on the crucial 2020 issue of health care, she's borrowing from a rival and fellow progressive _ Bernie Sanders.

The presidential candidate who made a mark with her signature "I have a plan for that!" is the only one of the five top-polling Democrats without a sweeping proposal of her own to remake the health care system. She has instead championed Sanders' legislation to replace private insurance by putting every American in an expanded Medicare program.

CONGRESS-HUNTER:SD _ A new date has been set for the criminal trial of Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif.; he will now face trial starting on Jan. 22, instead of Jan. 14, based on a court decision Monday.

Hunter's lawyers plan to ask the appeals court to dismiss charges that he spent more than $250,000 in campaign donations on girlfriends, family vacations, tuition for his children and other personal expenses.

^Talk of reparations for slavery moves to state capitols<

SLAVERY-REPARATIONS:SH _ Four centuries after the first African slaves landed on Virginia shores, state lawmakers across the country are taking up the debate over how to atone for what's been called "America's Original Sin."

This year, Democratic lawmakers in California, New York and Vermont _ states that either outlawed slavery before the Civil War or never allowed it _ have introduced legislation that would apologize for their state's role in slavery; recognize the lasting, negative impact of slavery on current generations of African Americans; and explore monetary reparations.

In April, Democratic lawmakers in Texas introduced a bill urging the passage of a federal reparations bill introduced by U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee, also a Democrat, that same month. (Sponsors did not return Stateline calls for comment.) And in September, Florida lawmakers introduced a $10 million reparations bill for the descendants of victims of a specific, 1920 racial atrocity, the Ocoee massacre.

In the two years since the garden was built, the university has twice rejected the language Miller chose for the plaque, instead offering alternatives she has nixed.
