1 For New York’s latest cover story (“Was It Worth It?,” September 30–October 13), 22 women and men talked about what happened after they came forward with accounts of sexual harassment and assault. Bruce Karp wrote, “This article made me wonder how we’ve gotten to the point where people who do wrong manage to suffer no consequences, while those who try to do the right thing end up being the ones who suffer consequences.” Soraya Chemaly, author of Rage Becomes Her, wrote, “Everywhere I go, women talk about this, and the double bind of coming forward.” The filmmaker and first partner of California, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, added, “It’s time we start paying more attention to the women who said #MeToo than the men whose lives are ‘ruined’ by the consequences…

1. her game

NANCY PELOSI HAS NOT had a simple job since the Democrats won back the House last year, having to, most prominently, swat away an ill-fated attempt to replace her as Speaker, navigate uncharted political waters with the emergence of the progressive “Squad,” and try to negotiate with Donald Trump. But on no single issue has she faced a more persistent drumbeat from assorted members of her caucus than the impeachment of the president, whom her entire party regards as a criminal but whom far fewer have believed it wise, politically, to prosecute. Suddenly, though, almost her entire caucus is behind her, and Pelosi’s months of caution (years, really, since Maxine Waters and Al Green first started calling for impeachment) look something like strategic prescience. It’s true that the Ukraine story…

2. the (full) case for impeachment

THE CRIMES FOR WHICH IMPEACHMENT is the prescribed punishment are notoriously undefined. And that’s for a reason: Presidential powers are vast, and it’s impossible to design laws to cover every possible abuse of the office’s authority. House Democrats have calculated that an impeachment focused narrowly on the Ukraine scandal will make the strongest legal case against President Trump. But that’s not Trump’s only impeachable offense. A full accounting would include a wide array of dangerous and authoritarian acts—82, to be precise. His violations fall into seven broad categories of potentially impeachable misconduct that should be weighed, if not by the House, then at least by history. I. ABUSING POWER FOR POLITICAL GAIN EXPLANATION ➝ The single most dangerous threat to any democratic system is that the ruling party will use its governing…

3. among the witches

IT’S HARD TO BE WORRIED when you don’t really like the guy.” That’s what one senior Republican Senate aide had to say when I asked how concerned conservatives are about Donald Trump’s fate. The truth is Trump fatigue is a condition that knows no party, and many Republicans are as tired of this shit as anybody else. That’s not to say they’re outraged or motivated to Make a Difference. They’re just tired. You can live inside the right-wing bubble in a state of depression, resigned to the fact that, yeah, every five minutes or so the president is probably going to do something norm shattering or potentially impeachable, and, no, you probably won’t or can’t do anything to change that. Sad! “I’m totally bored by the story,” one person who speaks…

from the cut: copenhagen invasion

WHEN THE DICTIONARY catches up to the Ganni girls, a group of them will be a charm (like finches), or maybe a flamboyance (like flamingos). When they stalk the streets of Soho, heads turn. They are leopard spotted, tiger striped, and flower dappled, often all at once. As they head for lunch, a charm of seven, people stop to stare. A family speaking Spanish takes a picture, though they don’t seem sure of what or why. Do they know Ditte, Shila, Louise, Katy, Jess, Imani, and Brooke? No. They just know they can’t stop looking. The women represent the fledgling U.S. operations of the Danish fashion label founded in 2000. Ganni’s wares are more affordable than much of what goes by the name of contemporary fashion (pieces start around $125), more…

one night at mount sinai

Aja Newman went to the emergency room for shoulder pain. Her doctor was a superstar. What’s the worst that could happen? SOMETIME AFTER 2 A.M. on January 12, 2016, Aja Newman roused herself from her hospital gurney and made her way down the long hallway to the bathroom. She had checked in at Mount Sinai’s Emergency Department more than four hours earlier with severe shoulder pain. Aja is a practical person and had been reluctant at first. “Emergency rooms are for emergencies is what I was taught,” she says. But the pain had been dogging her all day long and amplifying steadily, so that by 6 p.m., while she was shopping at Target, “my hands were tingling, and I was afraid.” ¶ The attending doctor who examined her first was Andy…
