Power, perhaps provided by plant part-owner San Diego Gas & Electric, cut out at 5:05 p.m. and was restored by 6 p.m., said Edison spokesman John Dobken. Workers followed procedures and were continuing to restore plant systems into the night.

Rudy Lays Out the Case Against Biden in Favor of Pres Trump || Jan 25 2020

– A lot to unpack, but a legal case has a lot of facts to follow. It’s not simple, criminals make it complicated on purpose. The president had everyone reason to look into corruption, extortion and bribery in a foreign country. Rudy has the docs and the facts.

Giuliani’s critics argue Rudy crossed a few lines in gathering evidence, seriously? Giuliani is a former Federal Prosecutor from New York City, seriously you think he would cross legal red lines?
