Stelter: This is when Trump needs to have credibility

So skepticism is not just understandable, it's not just acceptable, it is necessary." Abigail Tracy and Dan Rather also weigh in.

White House insiders, including a Mike Pence aide, are testifying that Trump's Ukraine interactions seemed 'inappropriate' and 'irregular'
SAUL LOEB/AFP via Getty Images Witnesses are shedding light on President Donald Trump's order earlier this year to halt military aid to Ukraine, a US ally, in the impeachment inquiry against Trump. Two transcripts that House impeachment investigators released on Saturday show depositions from Jennifer Williams, a special adviser on Europe and Russia to Vice President Mike Pence, and Timothy Morrison, a National Security Council official. Williams testified that Trump's efforts to persuade Ukraine to examine his political rivals were "unusual and inappropriate," and "shed some light on possible other motivations."  Mark Sandy, a longtime Office of Management and Budget official, also testified Saturday that the White House's decision to freeze aid was "highly irregular," the Washington Post reported.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

Prince Andrew showed was true power is: turning a blind eye to abuse | Suzanne Moore
In his astonishingly stupid interview with Emily Maitlis, the Queen’s favourite son gave us mortals a window into a sordid worldIf Prince Andrew thought being grilled by Emily Maitlis was a good idea, God only knows what he thinks might be a bad one. Sadly I think I know. Still, as we now all realise, there are lots of things that the prince simply does not notice. Hordes of available teenage girls. Are they staff? Is it a railway station? Who are these people? The interview had been widely trailed, but the nation was not prepared for this level of monstrous self-pity and frankly astonishing stupidity.Lying is the new normal for leaders: Donald Trump, another former friend of Jeffrey Epstein, lies non-stop; the current British prime minister lies and dissembles daily. So I guess we just thought Andrew would make more of an effort to at least come across as genuine and competent. We his disrespectful subjects gathered, strangely united, to see how he would justify the photographs of himself with a man who plea-bargained his way out of statutory rape charges, never mind the allegations made by Virginia Giuffre (and strongly denied by Andrew), that she was forced to have sex with the prince when she was aged 17.

Paint it black – artists of colour breathing new life into 'inert' art form
New generation of artists, many of them women, use figurative painting to redress imbalanceA new wave of figurative painters – many of whom are women of colour – are breathing new life into a form that has traditionally been dominated by white male artists and has been described as “anachronistic, inert, crusty”.Joy Labinjo was a star at Frieze London last month.

Ambassador Sondland, a key player in the impeachment inquiry, flaunted access to Trump on a loud call in a Ukrainian restaurant, officials allege ahead of his testimony
Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images Testimony from multiple officials as part of the impeachment inquiry has pointed to Gordon Sondland, US Ambassador to the European Union, as a key part of President Donald Trump's dealings in Ukraine even though the country is not in the European Union. It was revealed last week that Sondland was overheard on the phone with Trump outside a Kyiv restaurant discussing the Ukrainian president's willingness to pursue politically charged investigations, like a probe into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter. Trump has attempted to distance himself from Sondland since the impeachment inquiry was launched, but multiple accounts detail a close working relationship between the two. Follow along with our coverage of the hearings here. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Gordon Sondland, US Ambassador to the European Union, is facing mounting pressure as testimony from multiple officials paint him as a key part of President Donald Trump's dealings in Ukraine that sparked House Democrats' impeachment inquiry.

What is journalism for? In today’s world, here are four key purposes | Paul Chadwick
Faced with huge competition from social media, here are things that, to me, remain worthwhile in a free societyIf, as Hilary Mantel memorably proposed, history is the way we organise our ignorance of the past, how might we tackle our ignorance of our radically changing communications present, to keep the future bright? Hope may be power, as the Guardian’s recent promotional campaign slogan asserts it is, but nurturing hope requires some shared vocabulary.Let’s start small: what is journalism for? Besides making money and influence for a few, what purposes do media serve in societies that want to call themselves free? Even a rough consensus about that might help us assess how well those purposes are being fulfilled, and to know better how to adjust in an era of huge but clumsy social media entities and data-hungry, ethically unaccountable artificial intelligence. Four purposes of journalism, familiar even if usually expressed differently, seem to me to remain worthwhile: Continue reading...

The Guardian view on Prince Andrew: entitled, obtuse and shamefully silent over Epstein’s victims | Editorial
The Duke of York’s interview with Emily Maitlis revealed a man lacking in empathy and moral discernmentThere was a moment towards the end of Emily Maitlis’s extraordinary interview with Prince Andrew when she was unable to conceal her astonishment at what she was hearing. Did he, Ms Maitlis had asked, feel any sense of shame at his association with the convicted paedophile, Jeffrey Epstein? “Do I regret that he [Epstein] has quite obviously conducted himself in a manner unbecoming? Yes,” was the prince’s reply. “Unbecoming?” said Ms Maitlis incredulously. “He was a sex offender.”It was an exchange that summed up a grotesque mismatch between the Duke of York’s language and demeanour, and the gravity of the allegations which continue to surround him; between the obtuse self-absorption of a prince and what we know of the appalling sexual exploitation of teenage girls by his friend. Not once did Prince Andrew’s thoughts turn to the sex trafficking victims who found themselves forced to perform sexual acts with Epstein and others. No sympathy was expressed on their behalf; no sense of outrage. This lack of empathy revealed a man focused only on his own exculpation. It gave a damning insight into a sense of entitlement that hardly helped his cause. Continue reading...
