Morning Docket: 03.11.19

* According to House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), special counsel Robert Mueller is making “a mistake” by not putting President Trump under oath for in-person testimony, since “he's made plain in the past [that] he feels it's perfectly fine to lie to the public.” [NBC News] * Per his lawyer, Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann will be suing CNN for at least $250M because the news network was “probably more vicious in its direct attacks” than the Washington Post.

GOP Rep: ‘Extraordinarily Unlikely’ Kim Wasn’t Aware Of Otto’s ‘Torture And Murder’

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-UT) put substantial distance between himself and President Trump on Friday regarding the President’s recent comment on North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un’s knowledge of the treatment of American student Otto Warmbier. “This was an absolute murder. It was torture and murder, and I think that the North Korean regime should be held accountable for it,” Stewart told CNN. “I think it is extraordinarily unlikely that the President of North Korea Kim Jong Un was holding one of t...

“Is Austin Racist?” Let’s Start There.

“Is Austin Racist?” That’s a Good Question I owe a lot of my professional and personal growth to Austin.I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Austin is my first love.

The Austinites Guide to Better Dating

Since moving to Austin in 2012, I’ve continuously heard my friends complaining about the dating scene in Austin. Upset about flakey people, bored of the monotony of grabbing a drink with mediocre conversation and done with all the texting games they wanted better. When I moved here, I had never really gone on dates with people I didn’t know before. I didn’t jump on that train until a couple of years later when dating apps became the norm. That’s when I started realizing I wasn’t meeting top-not...

Romney: ‘I Would Vote For The Border Wall,’ But It Has To Be ‘Win-Win’ For Dems

Sen.-elect Mitt Romney (R-UT) said Wednesday that President Donald Trump would have to find a “win-win” in order to end the government shutdown the President began by insisting on $5 billion in funds for a border wall. “There’s the substance and then there’s the symbolism,” Romney told CNN’s Jake Tapper in an interview. “A nd clearly, if the President were able to get a $5 billion check to build the wall, that would look like a huge win for Republicans and a big loss for Democrats.

No. 5 Oklahoma won its fourth straight Big 12 title and may have punched a ticket to the College Football Playoff. Facing rival Texas at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, the Sooners led 30-27 in the fourth but gave the ball back to the Longhorns on a great individual effort by UT linebacker Gary Johnson.

West Virginia used 'Horns Down' signal for a play, but Texas got the last laugh

During its win over Texas a few weeks ago, West Virginia was flagged twice for doing the “Horns Down,” which is turning UT’s signature “Hook ‘Em Horns” hand sign and turning it toward the ground. It’s something that Texas takes pretty seriously. One of the times a flag came out was after WVU quarterback Will Grier ran in the game-winning two-point conversion in the final seconds.
