    There were times during New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s press conference on Wednesday when you had to wonder whether he was trying to get himself held liable for sexual harassment. His carefully crafted reputation for being a peerless communicator notwithstanding, Cuomo is prone to error, and worse, in these settings. That is what happens to even smart people who grow accustomed to fawning media coverage. MICHAEL GOODWIN: WILL ANDREW CUOMO RESIGN: DON'T BET ON IT. HERE'S HOW GOVERNOR PLANS TO STAY IN OFFICE Without the wariness that comes from being challenged and badgered, things that aren’t true trip easily off their tongues, sometime because they’re lying, and other times because they don’t prepare well enough before taking questions. Cuomo is smooth enough that what he says usually sounds plausible in the moment, even if, upon reflection, it’s absurd. He figures, though, that there is no "upon reflection."

    In baseball, it’s three strikes and you’re out. In New York politics, you get at least three strikes and maybe four or even five. As growing numbers of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s fellow Democrats demand he resign following three allegations of sexual harassment, there is widespread expectation he’ll quit any day now. That could happen, but absent bombshell accusations by more women, I wouldn’t bet on it. It’s much more likely we’re in the early innings of a game that could go on for months. In fact, it’s possible the situation could go unresolved until the 2022 election, when Cuomo was expected to seek a fourth term. Wednesday, at a press conference, the governor asked New Yorkers to wait for "the facts." I say this because it’s clear the governor has no intention of volunteering his resignation and because he can’t be forced out except by the Legislature through impeachment, which...

    And so the verdict is ... Hallelujah. It’s over.  The acquittal of former President Donald Trump in his second impeachment trial is a fitting outcome to a case that should not have happened. Never before has a former president been impeached and put on trial, and it should never happen again.  DONNA BRAZILE: THE TRUMP IMPEACHMENT TRIAL AND OUR DUTY TO HISTORY This was a show trial, an attempt by Democrats to humiliate Trump after his election defeat and force Republicans to side with him or against him. While the president’s speech before the Capitol riot was at times too angry and bitter, there was nothing in it that could reasonably be seen as intending to incite an insurrection, as the single House article charged. More from Opinion Gregg Jarrett: Trump impeachment trial — defense skillfully destroys Dems' case against former president Justin Haskins: Biden's Made in America order – here's what part of America...
    They can’t quit the grift. No sooner had Joe Biden won the White House than his family went back to trying to make a buck off his name.  The latest sordid example involves one of Joe’s younger brothers, Frank Biden, appearing in a Florida law firm’s ad – on Inauguration Day no less. The ad used the president’s name to draw attention to the Berman Law Group’s class-action suit against sugar cane growers. "The two Biden brothers have long held a commitment to pushing environmental issues to the forefront," says the ad. "The president-elect has vowed to rejoin the Paris Agreement and wants to set ambitious greenhouse gas reduction targets." SALLY PIPES: BIDEN'S HEALTH CARE PLANS – THIS IS WHAT AMERICANS CAN EXPECT FROM DEMOCRATS The ad, first reported by CNBC, appeared in the Daily Business Review and carried a picture of Frank Biden and quotes him saying, "My brother is a model for how...
    ♈ ARIES March 21 to April 20 With home life heating up, prepare for some full and frank discussions . . . started by you! If a family or couple have been less than totally honest, this can change. Your passion powers are boosted by Venus’ subtle matchmaking and you have already secretly wowed your fate mate. ♉ TAURUS April 21 to May 21 Yes, you love to be organised but your Uranus-led sign is ready to break a few of your own rules. In love, try not to plan and instead let passion lead you where it feels right. And rather than worrying about work, expect it to go well if, deep down, you know you have done all you can. ♊ GEMINI May 22 to June 21 Maybe too many voices have been telling you too many things.

    So what would I do if I had to vote on impeachment in the Senate? From the first, I’ve described President Trump’s behavior on Jan. 6 as impeachable – particularly in the context of what went on in the weeks since the election, but even without that. I was not trying to be cute. ANDREW McCARTHY: WHY DEMOCRATS NEED A DO-OVER ON THEIR IMPEACHMENT ARTICLE I have been wrestling with the wisdom of proceeding with impeachment due to the lateness of Trump’s term. But I would not call something impeachable unless it was serious enough to be condemnable by conviction, removal, and disqualification. Indeed, I have written a book about impeachment, "Faithless Execution," in which I argued that several actions taken by President Obama were impeachable. None of them was as egregious as what President Trump did – and, especially, what he omitted to do – on Jan. 6. CLICK HERE TO GET THE OPINION NEWSLETTER...
    Whatever political future Donald Trump might have envisioned for himself is now dead. He squandered a good chunk of it in the Georgia runoffs, when he made them all about himself instead of about keeping Republican control over the Senate. But it was finished off by the mob of his own supporters who stormed the Capitol this past Wednesday and inflicted more lasting damage on their man than anything his enemies ever managed. At the moment, Washington is consumed with just how humiliating Mr. Trump’s exit will be—with a second impeachment, with the 25th Amendment invoked, with his resignation. There’s even talk of holding a Senate trial when he’s no longer president. CLICK HERE TO GET THE OPINION NEWSLETTER But for anyone who cares about unity and healing, the president’s fate is no longer the primary concern. More important is the future for the half of America that supported him. Because there...
    Nine months into the COVID-19 global pandemic, parents of school-age children might be forgiven for their frustration concerning the whipsaw nature of on-again, off-again in-person classroom learning.  Despite the urging of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and mental health professionals, some of the largest school districts across the country have once again reverted to virtual education.  “I’ve had it!” one parent wrote me. “My son isn’t getting anything out of online schooling. He’s distracted and the classes are disjointed. I know the teacher is trying, but it’s a complete waste of time.”  ADRIANA COHEN: GIVE TEACHERS PRIORITY FOR COVID-19 VACCINATIONS SO SCHOOLS CAN REOPEN Another mother lamented having to curtail her work hours in order to be home to supervise her child’s computer usage. And for good reason. Not only is the Internet full of dark places for kids – but more mundane temptations, too. During an online...
    A  federal court has thrown out the Trump campaign’s lawsuit in Pennsylvania, which challenged presumptive President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in the commonwealth. In so doing, district judge Matthew Brann refused the campaign’s eleventh-hour attempt to file a new complaint that would have reinstated election fraud claims the Trump campaign had abandoned a few days earlier. PENNSYLVANIA JUDGE THROWS OUT TRUMP'S LAWSUIT, CLEARING WAY FOR BIDEN WIN Judge Brann’s 37-page opinion sets forth a variety of reasons for dismissing the case. Most of them are directed toward the complaints of two individual plaintiffs — voters who claimed that their ballots had been improperly discounted. CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR OUR OPINION NEWSLETTER By contrast, the court found that the Trump campaign had no standing to sue, having posited no evidence that President Trump was harmed in any cognizable way by the manner in which the election was conducted in Pennsylvania.

    (CNN) — Being glued to your smartphone could be causing you to make impulsive decisions and crave immediate gratification. In fact, people who spend more time on their phones are more likely to reject larger, delayed rewards in favor of smaller, immediate rewards, according to a study published Wednesday in the academic journal PLOS ONE. Research has long shown that a preference for smaller, immediate rewards — what researchers call delay discounting — is an indicator for various negative behaviors, such as drug addiction, excessive gambling, and alcohol abuse. Now, new research from Freie Universität in Berlin reveals that excessive smartphone use is also linked to impulsivity. “Our findings provide further evidence that smartphone use and impulsive decision-making go hand in hand,” said researchers Tim Schulz van Endert and Peter Mohr in a statement. “People who are already aware of their impulsive decision-making may benefit from the knowledge of their increased risk of overusing smartphones,” the...

    Every time I think that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have gone too far, they go one terrible step farther.  It’s like some awful game of truth or dare, one in which they don’t care about or understand the consequences, only about their own personal gratification and exultation, now and forevermore, amen. Their latest caper is a new low, perhaps an all-time low, for how much lower can you go than organising your own photoshoot in a national military cemetery, a sacred place where war dead are laid to rest, then sending the pictures around the world to advertise the virtue and depth of your mourning? Oh my God. Can’t someone save them from themselves? Halloween may be over, but not for this couple of blundering ghouls. On Sunday, the Sussexes took it upon themselves to ‘personally recognise’ Remembrance Day by visiting the Los Angeles National Cemetery to pay...

    On Tuesday, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe released parts of the documents underlying his earlier revelation about Hillary Clinton’s role in orchestrating the Trump-Russia collusion farce. The new revelations are important, particularly in clarifying a suggestion, made last week by Ratcliffe, that U.S. intelligence agencies referred former Secretary of State Clinton to the FBI for investigation. That suggestion was then repeated by Senate Republicans and in media commentary (including my column, here). There was no referral of that kind. That perhaps explains why, in his Senate testimony last week, former FBI Director James Comey maintained that he recalled no such thing – to the seeming exasperation of Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.). GIANNO CALDWELL: PENCE-HARRIS FACEOFF COULD BE MOST IMPORTANT VP DEBATE EVER In reality, when read in conjunction with other information that I addressed in "Ball of Collusion," Ratcliffe’s disclosures underscore that the Obama administration, including its law-enforcement and intelligence agencies,...

    As promised, the U.S. this weekend reimposed arms sanctions on Iran. Those sanctions had been suspended by the Obama-era nuclear deal with the Iranian regime. Not only are the sanctions back, but they are also bigger and better than ever. Here are three reasons why these sanctions are nothing short of a game-changer. 1. The sanctions are broader and more aggressive than the original prohibitions The new injunctions cover a wider range of activities. The old sanctions applied to arms dealers doing business with Tehran. The new sanctions can be applied to individuals, companies and governments that are trying to negotiate arms deals or taking action to support negotiations. In other words, the U.S. government can be more proactive—to the point of squelching even talks selling arms to the mullahs. The new sanctions also give U.S. regulators more flexibility to ferret out and punish cheaters who try to evade the...

    There were many American heroes on 9/11, but the greatest were the passengers and crew of Flight 93.

For two decades, I have opposed the fanatical illiberalism of those strands of Islam that gave rise to Al Qaeda.

    Browser tabs are essential, everyday parts of modern web browsers, and odds are you probably have a bunch open right now. Too many, most likely. That’s usually OK, because they’re useful for comparing pages, keeping track of things you want to read later, or just organizing your work. The problem is, they're so useful that they can quickly become overwhelming.

    You can almost smell the sweat. The Democrats and their media handmaidens are starting to panic about Joe Biden’s prospects. The proof comes in their efforts to wish away the wave of crime and violence engulfing many American cities. Their argument can be boiled down to two false claims. First, it’s President Trump’s fault. Second, it’s not that big of a wave. The first is patently absurd on its face. Democratic mayors running nearly all those cities are pulling back cops and rejecting federal help. The blood is on their hands. DAVID LIMBAUGH: DEMOCRATS OWN THESE RIOTS – BLAMING TRUMP WON'T WORK The second claim is outrageously cold-hearted. It means the left sees hundreds of murders, mostly of Black men, and the wholesale destruction of property as small prices to pay for putting Biden in the White House. And so they whistle as they pass the graveyards. CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR OUR OPINION NEWSLETTER The GOP...

    It is hard to tell what the current revolutionary violence in our major cities is all about. So far, hundreds of police have been injured, dozens of people have been killed, and we have seen billions of dollars in property and collateral damage. Ostensibly, many of the summer demonstrations were in protest over the gruesome detention and death of George Floyd while in Minneapolis police custody on May 25.

    China wants to unseat President Donald Trump. It is engaged in massive public diplomacy campaigns as well as surreptitious and malicious use of social media for this purpose. At the moment, it appears Beijing’s ongoing anti-Trump effort will exceed Russian meddling both this year and in 2016. Today, Fox News reported that Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe said China, engaged in “election influence and interference” and other activities, is the greatest national security threat to America. REBECCA GRANT: KAMALA HARRIS VS. CHINA – IS VP CANDIDATE A HAWK IN THE MAKING? Ratcliffe is correct. As an initial matter, Beijing this year has issued, in both Chinese state and Communist Party media, propaganda intending to tar the Trump administration. The volume of newspaper stories, social media postings and pronouncements looks unprecedented. Moreover, the Communist Party’s Global Times, a tabloid, and the Chinese Foreign Ministry have been engaged in apparently coordinated public...
    I’ve always said that our goals inform the paths we choose. You can tell a lot about a person — or, a political movement — by how they choose to persuade the masses. Ask yourself, what do their tactics look like? Are their tactics effective, if peaceful? Or, are their efforts repression dressed up as resistance? Once you figure that out, you can get a pretty good idea whose side they’re on. If you’re looking for a perfect example of the latter, look no further than Chattanooga, Tenn., home of Shuford’s Smokehouse. That name sounds familiar because in June, “resistance” activists decided that Shuford’s owners didn’t deserve to do business anymore.

    A Joe Biden presidency would be disastrous for American businesses, workers and families. From his job-killing fracking ban to his promised tax increases on middle-income Americans, Biden’s big-government agenda would strangle the economy and leave entire communities destitute. The artificial downturn caused by the coronavirus pandemic has made it even more imperative that we avoid Biden’s destructive economic policies. SALLY PIPES: EXPAND MEDICAID? DEMOCRATS' PLAN WOULD INCREASE WASTE, FRAUD AND DEBT Employing the same pro-growth policies that turned the stagnant Obama-Biden economy into a record-setting dynamo in recent years, President Trump is orchestrating an unprecedented “V-shaped” recovery as our country emerges from pandemic-related lockdowns.

    A year ago, almost to the day, writing for a 5-4 majority, Chief Justice John Roberts upheld the constitutional right of a property owner divested by a local government ordinance to sue for just compensation. The owner in Knick v. Township of Scott had failed to seek compensation in state court before filing her federal lawsuit. That meant her federal case should have been barred under the court’s 1985 ruling in Williamson County Regional Planning Commission v. Hamilton Bank. But no, reasoned the chief justice. If the justices upheld that precedent to foreclose Knick’s suit, they would be elevating their own wrongly decided precedent over the Constitution’s prohibition on government takings without just compensation.

    How America’s political class must pine for the halcyon days of just a few weeks ago, when only statues of Confederate generals (and the occasional Christopher Columbus) had to fear being pulled down or defaced. Save for scattered notes of disapproval from historians, life largely went on. No longer. The ire of the mob has now shifted from Robert E. Lee and his comrades in gray to include such disparate figures as Washington, Lincoln, Francis Scott Key, Miguel de Cervantes, Ulysses S. Grant, Father Junípero Serra and, if Real Justice PAC founder Shaun King is to be believed, “white Jesus.” As a result, it’s emerging as an issue in the presidential race.

    MISSISSIPPI lawmakers voted on Saturday to remove the Confederate symbol from the state flag, as the state's Republican governor said he'd sign a bill to remove it. The House 85-34 to suspend its rules and introduce a bill to take down the state flag, which has red, white, and blue stripes with the Confederate flag in the top left corner. 1Credit: AP:Associated Press The Mississippi Clarion Ledger reported that the resolution now heads to the state Senate -- where it will also require a two-thirds vote to pass as it did in the House. Speaker Pro Tem Jason White said on the House floor: “Many opponents of changing the state flag say we should stand up to what is right, that we shouldn’t cave to outside pressure. Even if it’s bad for business." "I agree with those people. I’m here today because it is simply the right thing to do.”...

    The 30-year wait is over. Liverpool is champion of England again. Liverpool clinched its first league title since 1990 on Thursday, ending an agonizing title drought without the players even having to take the field.

    Well, there is lots going on in Flynn World. The president’s former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, is obviously elated that, on Wednesday, a three-judge panel of the D.C.

    A divided panel of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday ordered Judge Emmet Sullivan to grant the Justice Department’s motion to dismiss the indictment against Michael Flynn, who fleetingly served as President Trump’s first national security adviser. In a majority ruling written by Judge Naomi Rao and joined by Judge Karen LeCraft Henderson, appointees of Presidents Trump and Bush 41, respectively, the court held that the executive branch has the constitutional power of prosecutorial discretion, including the authority to decide which cases to charge and whether to persist in charges once they’ve been brought. This power is in tension with Rule 48(a) of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, which requires the Justice Department to seek “leave of the Court” before dismissing an indictment. While not deciding the potentially legitimate parameters of this requirement, the majority reasoned that it is for the protection of defendants from prosecutorial harassment....

    As California continues to rack up record numbers of coronavirus infections, COVID-19 testing continues to expand in the Bay Area. Think you need to be tested? Testing services are available across various hospitals, county and third-party sites available to the general public (here’s a map of various providers across the Bay Area). For the most part, they do not require you to be symptomatic — though some sites will screen you for eligibility — and require no out-of-pocket expense. If you have a healthcare provider, it’s recommended you call them first. If you don’t, here’s a list of free testing sites arranged by county. Some counties may also have temporary pop-up testing locations that rotate on a weekly basis, which are updated on county websites. Healthcare companies Optum and Verily are also managing additional public testing sites in the Bay Area that aren’t all listed on county pages. You can...

I made sure I was at, or below, the speed limit while the cops trailed me for another two miles before pulling me over. GREG GUTFELD: THE NARRATIVES OF MADNESS At my window, they asked whose car I was driving, and when I told them it was mine, they questioned how I could afford such a car. I was cuffed and placed in the backseat of the squad car while they ran my license and searched my car without permission. Eventually, they allowed me to leave.

    Here’s a laugh: Washington intends to tell New York how to do policing. The federal government has one premier law-enforcement agency, the FBI, and a sprawl of more specialized police forces — DEA, ATF, IRS’s criminal-investigation division, etc. These bureaucracies are dwarfed in size and scope by big-city municipal police departments, such as the NYPD.

Police in South Carolina are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a man who broke into a Waffle House in Murrells Inlet, prepared himself three snacks, and then absconded with a package of disposable gloves. WHICH FAST FOOD RESTAURANT FIRST OPENED AS A DRIVE-THRU-ONLY ESTABLISHMENT? The crime took place very early on Sunday morning, according to surveillance images shared by the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office.

    Lots of media are reporting about today’s first scheduled court appearance by fired Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin in connection with the killing of George Floyd. VON SPAKOVSKY AND STIMSON: GEORGE FLOYD RIOTERS – USE THIS FEDERAL LAW TO PUNISH VIOLENT CRIMINALS As Rich and I discussed on The McCarthy Report podcast last week, Chauvin was arrested on a complaint, was amended last week. Neither he nor any of the other three officers involved in the killing of George Floyd has been indicted yet.

    In a lecture at Hillsdale College last year about the erosion of standards at The New York Times, I borrowed a memorable exchange from Ernest Hemingway’s novel “The Sun Also Rises.” DAN GAINOR: NEW YORK TIMES SURRENDER — LEFTIST TAKEOVER CONTINUES AFTER COTTON OP-ED “How did you go bankrupt?” Bill asks. “Two ways,” Mike responds. “Gradually and then suddenly.” For the Times, “suddenly” has arrived. Its standards are now bankrupt. CLICK HERE TO GET THE OPINION NEWSLETTER The revolt of the paper’s newsroom over the publication of Sen.

    Minneapolis’ soy boy of a mayor, Jacob Frey, proves that no matter how much you abase yourself to the mob, you can never be woke enough. LIZ PEEK: CAN JOE 'CRIME BILL' BIDEN LEAD DEMS SEEKING TO DEFUND POLICE, CHALLENGE UNIONS? In a scene reminiscent of a Maoist struggle session, he stood before two black protest organizers Saturday and confessed through a mask into a microphone that he was “coming to grips with my own brokenness.” But the organizers, standing on a platform above him, weren’t interested in providing therapy for this 38-year-old man-child.

    This week, The New York Times ran an op-ed by United States Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., urging that the military be used to quell the fires, looting and violence gripping the nation’s cities. A Morning Consult poll from this week found that 58 percent of registered voters agreed with that idea. But apparently it’s an opinion forbidden in the Times. VideoBlack staffers at the paper said the column made them feel unsafe. The day after it ran, the paper folded like, well, The New York Times, and apologized for it.DAN GAINOR: NY TIMES FLIP-FLOPS AND SAYS SEN. TOM COTTON OP-ED IT PUBLISHED ON RIOTING IS UNFIT TO PRINT Once, the separation between the news and Opinion page — church and state — at the Times was held up as an exemplar of objectivity in journalism.

    “Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts.” How quaint seems this trenchant observation by the late Daniel Patrick Moynihan, one of the greatest progressive thinkers of the 20th century’s latter half. Not because of the patriarchal pronoun presumptions of the aging white cis male. I refer to Senator Moynihan’s very assumption that there are facts. That there is an objective reality on which we can all agree, even if we disagree about what it means. And equally important, that there is a way of getting to facts, a common language of reason that enables us to investigate, communicate, and explicate. BEN SHAPIRO MOCKS NY TIMES' 'FULLY INSANE' APOLOGY OVER COTTON OP-ED: 'DON'T YELL AT US! WE'RE WOKE!'

    About twice as many white people as black people are killed by police. In fact, in about 75 percent of police shootings, the decedent is not black. Of course, that is not what you would grasp from consuming media. CURTIS HILL: MURDER CHARGES IN GEORGE FLOYD DEATH ARE A GOOD STEP BUT MORE NEEDED TO FIX BROKEN RACE RELATIONS Take the website statista.com, specifically its breathless focus on “Hate crime in the United States” — counterfactually insinuating that any shooting involving a black victim must be a “hate crime.” Here’s their big headline from Tuesday: “Black Americans 2.5X More Likely Than Whites to Be Killed By Police.” It is fiction. It is sheer demagoguery, peddled as American cities are besieged by rioters in the wake of George Floyd’s killing by Minneapolis police.

    Since the revolution in policing that began in the early 1990s, we have had a generation of peace and prosperity. Without the rule of law — i.e., without order, without the presumption that the laws will be enforced — that kind of societal flourishing is not possible. We are seeing now what happens when the rule of law breaks down. It is frightening, but it is hardly unprecedented, even in modern history. BISHOP T.D. JAKES: RACE AND POLICING – CHURCH LEADERS MUST DRIVE NATIONAL CONVERSATION, ACTION PLAN Bryan Burrough’s spellbinding history "Days of Rage: America’s Radical Underground, the FBI, and the Forgotten Age of Revolutionary Violence," which I reviewed for National Review about five years ago, reminds us that in 1972 alone, there were 1,900 bombings in the United States, carried out, for the most part, by domestic terrorist groups and enraged individual American citizens.

    According to President Trump and his most ardent supporters, he is a “disruptor” here to shake up established Washington ways. Nevertheless, in announcing that he will “designate” Antifa, the far-left radical movement, as a terrorist organization, he is pulling a page from the Swamp’s playbook. It is political rhetoric portrayed as legally significant action to bring to heel an array of sociopaths that, to be sure, are playing their now familiar instigator’s role in the rioting that roils American cities. ANDREW McCARTHY: LAWS AGAINST RIOTING AND TERRORISM MUST BE ENFORCED AGAINST ANTIFA AND OTHER VIOLENT RADICALS The purported designation would be pointless, in that the means of taking aggressive enforcement action against Antifa, and against domestic terrorism generally, are plentiful and ready to hand. The president’s move would also be legally invalid because, under federal law and for very sound reasons, designation is available only for foreign terrorist organizations. Antifa is a domestic enterprise. The...
    The tragedy of the riots sparked by George Floyd’s death was brought home by a distraught elderly black woman interviewed by the local ABC affiliate in her ruined south Minneapolis neighborhood. “These people did this for no reason,” wept Stephanie Wilford, who lives in an apartment next to where shops were looted and burned Friday night. “They went straight to ... every store over here that I go to.

    For most of Donald Trump’s brief political career, chaos has been his friend. He draws energy from an endless storm of difficulties and controversies that would send most presidents into the fetal position. Critics and supporters alike compare his presidency to a reality television show, one that always ends with the leading man getting the last word.

    Things are often more complicated than they appear at first blush. That is certainly the case with the murder of George Floyd, with which former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was charged in a complaint filed on Friday. KAY COLES JAMES: GEORGE FLOYD'S SENSELESS KILLING – END RACISM THAT AFFLICTS AMERICA'S SOUL LIKE A CANCER For one thing, contrary to most people’s assumption, Floyd appears not to have died from asphyxia or strangulation as Chauvin pinned him to the ground, knee to the neck. Rather, as alleged in the complaint, Floyd suffered from coronary-artery disease and hypertensive-heart disease. The complaint further intimates, but does not come out and allege, that Floyd may have had “intoxicants” in his system. The effects of these underlying health conditions and “any potential intoxicants” are said to have “combined” with the physical restraint by three police officers, most prominently Chauvin, to cause Floyd’s death.
