HOLY CRAP THIS DAY!
1. The Jeff Sessions hearing continues today, feat. testimony from Sen. Cory Booker.
2. Trump held his first press conference since July. It was...yeah nevermind.
3. Rex Tillerson's confirmation hearing begins at 9am ET. This is definitely one to watch, ESPECIALLY considering the insane Russia story that just came out—one of the biggest strikes against Tillerson (at least as far as the GOP is concerned—they're not tripping on his climate change BS or his EXXON-ness) is his cozy relationship with Putin. Marco Rubio has been publicly concerned about this, as has Rand Paul. It will only take ONE GOP Sen to vote against Tillerson to block the nomination.
Action-wise...keep making calls about Sessions and Tillerson and the ACA. Follow the Russia story. Watch the hearings if you can—and call and thank the Dems who are standing strong, including Dianne Feinstein, Al Franken, Patrick Leahy, and, after he testifies, Cory Booker.
