Still, Trump was not dissuaded. The wild session — during which Trump weighed seizing vot- ing machines from key counties, deploying the National Guard to potentially rerun the election or appointing lawyer Sidney Powell as a special counsel to investigate the election — had been widely reported in past accounts of Trump’s final weeks in office. But the committee, at its sev- enth public hearing on Tuesday, brought forward powerful and vivid personal testimony from six different participants — both those who wanted the president to act and those begging him not to do so — weaving them together in a video montage that intercut voices from both sides. It took place four days after the electoral college met and, con- firming the popular vote in key states, formally elected Joe Biden the next president. The committee showed clips of testimony demon- strating that Trump was told by everyone from Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to Attorney General William P. Barr to Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia — a lawyer and son of a deceased conservative Supreme Court justice — that there was no longer a legal path for him to remain in office, and it was time to concede.

WEDNESDAY, JULY 13, 2022 NASA unveils first images of cosmos from Webb telescope TELESCOPE FROM A1 Carina Nebula spectacular images that the space agen- NASA, ESA, CSA AND STSCI/ERO PRODUCTION TEAM/REUTERS cy and its international partners are eager to share with the world. The dramatic image echoes the famous Pillars of Creation seen by the Hubble and has been given a similarly flamboyant name: the Cosmic Cliffs. The vast nebula brings to mind a rugged landscape on Earth. It is a star-forming region with a cliff-like structure caused by the intense ultraviolet radiation emitting from hot young stars outside Hundreds of people — scientists, the frame of the image. It is roughly 7,500 light-years from Earth, within our own Milky Way galaxy. engineers, members of Congress — gathered in an auditorium at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Green- belt for the big reveal. Goddard interns waved pompoms and cheered as VIPs entered the room. NASA put on a live-streamed show, largely beamed out of a studio nearby, but with an interna- tional flavor, featuring scientists in Canada and Europe and cutting briefly to watch parties held by space buffs across the planet. Project manager Bill Ochs expressed relief, saying before the start of the ceremony: “I always expected to have a few little gotchas — things that come and along and bite you.” But nothing bit. All the things that can go wrong with a complex mission like this are just old news at this point, mission systems engineer Mike Menzel said. “The new news is that the telescope right now is performing twice as good as we expect- ed,” he said. The Webb’s five initial “targets” are: Wasp-96 b This is a giant, hot, steamy planet, maybe half the mass of Jupiter, that circles a star 1,150 light-years from Earth. It is so close to the star that it makes a full orbit in 31/2 days. That is far too close to be resolved as an individual object, but an instrument on the tele- scope has obtained the spectra of the planet, showing the presence of water vapor and signs that the planet is enveloped in clouds and haze. The same technique can be used to study atmo- spheres on smaller, rockier planets that orbit their parent star in the “habitable zone” where water could be liquid on the surface — as it is on Earth.

There are signs that the sanc- tions are starting to bite. Russian government statistics show that auto production plummeted by 96.7 percent in May compared with a year ago, threatening a sector that employs 600,000. Economists say that reflects a broad collapse in manufacturing as foreign-owned factories close and domestic ones struggle to import Western components. Hundreds of foreign compa- nies have ceased operations in Russia, inflation is running at 16 percent and the country’s gross domestic product will contract by 8.5 percent this year, the Interna- tional Monetary Fund predicts. Economists say Russia’s long- term prospects remain dire. “The potential for the decline is far from exhausted,” Sergey Alek- sashenko, a former top official in Russia’s Finance Ministry and central bank, who now lives in the United States, wrote June 30 in a newsletter. But some factors continue working in Russia’s favor, includ- ing lucrative oil and gas exports that fund the military and social safety net. Russia earned about 93 billion euros — roughly $93 billion, or $1 billion a day — in revenue from fossil fuel exports in the first 100 days of the war, according to the Centre for Re- search on Energy and Clean Air, a nonprofit in Finland.

Twitter suit could mean months of legal drama, experts say TWITTER FROM A1 RICHARD DREW/ASSOCIATED PRESS filing said that Musk’s complaints The Twitter logo at the New York Stock Exchange last fall. The company filed a lawsuit on Tuesday against Elon Musk, writing that he “apparently believes that he — unlike about bots had no merit, and that every other party subject to Delaware contract law — is free to change his mind, trash the company, disrupt its operations, destroy stockholder value, and walk away.” Musk, despite getting reams of data and information from Twit- cial media company. make up fewer than 5 percent of found out later that those esti- speedier timeline than other types will give is harder to forecast.” ter, hadn’t been able to produce Soon after, Musk began to the accounts on its service of mates might not be accurate, of court cases and one reason that The court could order that any evidence that the company’s 229 million daily users, but some could be viewed as reasonable by a businesses prefer to headquarter estimates were wrong. throw wrenches in the deal, using outside researchers have project- judge. in Delaware.

At first Musk claimed he was buying the company and taking it private to rid it of spam, Twitter’s lawyers note. Then, after the mar- ket downturn, Musk changed his tune, “suddenly demanding ‘veri- fication’ that spam was not a seri- ous problem on Twitter’s plat- form, and claiming a burning need to conduct ‘diligence’ he had expressly forsworn.” The lawsuit is the latest in a tumultuous saga that began in April, when Twitter’s board ac- cepted Musk’s surprise offer to purchase the long-struggling so-

Snippets of nature — everything from a bundle of rattlesnake grass to Emily Dickinson’s dog — have woven themselves into her critically acclaimed poetry. Now, Limón, 46, hopes to share her devotion to nature with the whole country. She was named the 24th poet laureate of the United States on Tuesday. Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden called Limón with the news, much to the poet’s pleasant surprise. “For someone who is a poet and believes in the power of language, I can tell you that language definitely went out the window at that moment in my life,” she says. Born in Sonoma, Calif., Limón was first enchanted by the world of poetry while working at her local bookstore. At the University of Washington, she ma- jored in theater and planned to continue theater studies in graduate school. That is, until her poetry teacher Colleen McElroy pulled her aside during office hours. “She said, ‘You should think about going to graduate school in poetry,’ ” Limón remembers. “And she was incred- ibly tough. Those teachers do not hand out a compliment lightly.” Taking McElroy’s advice to heart, she SEE LIMÓN ON C4 BOOK WORLD ‘Succession,’ ‘Squid Game’ among the standout New series manage to break through awards shows to dominate the Emmy nominations race that’s never been more competitive A debut novel dripping with BY SONIA RAO, BY INKOO KANG exquisite BETHONIE BUTLER, suspense HELENA ANDREWS-DYER It’s no one’s favorite time of the year: the day of Emmy AND EMILY YAHR nominations.

Andrew Garfield and Michael Keaton are about halfway there, playing fictional characters in real situations (the former a detective looking into a murder seemingly tied to the Mor- mon faith, and the latter a doctor who unwittingly contributes to the opioid epidemic in its early days). “Scenes From a Marriage” was carried by lead performances by Juilliard classmates Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac, who hasn’t appeared this emotionally tormented since “Inside Llewyn Davis,” perhaps? Garfield seems the front-runner here, capping a great year for him. (Himesh Patel, unlikely to win, is still nice to see.)

The book’s pervasive ominousness can be numbing, but the payoffs eventually come. By the end of “The Swell,” several characters have died violent deaths, and the reader has reason to believe more carnage is coming. (Putnam, July 19) ‘Daisy Darker’ “My childhood friends were Agatha Christie and Stephen King,” says the eponymous narrator of “Daisy Darker.” The remark highlights the challenge taken on by Daisy’s creator, Alice Feeney: Follow the classic recipe for Christie’s “And Then There Were None”— isolated cast of characters, who get knocked off one by one until nobody is left — and reinvigorate the dish. Feeney sets her whodunit at a family reunion, where Daisy and six other Darkers, plus an honorary member of the clan gather at Seaglass, their crumbling house on a private island off the Cornish coast. The occasion is the 80th birthday of the matriarch, Nana, which happens to fall on Halloween. As the night wears on, one by one the celebrants are being knocked off, an especially harrowing trend because as Daisy explained at the outset, “When the tide comes in, we’ll be cut off from the rest of the world for eight hours.” Daisy’s narration darts back and forth between past and present while an already frightful night is made worse by a thunderstorm, and I forgot to mention that Nana collects clocks, 80 of which tick menacingly in the background. Feeney leavens her plot with humor — as in a flashback featuring Conor, the adjunct family member, who as a teenager livened up a birthday party at Seaglass with his “not-bad impression of Tom Cruise in Top Gun. He wore aviator sunglasses indoors even when it got dark, so was constantly bumping into things and people …” The most striking feature of “Daisy Darker,” however, is not its group dynamics or black comedy or its audacity. A surprise sprung in the final chapters may leave some readers feeling they’ve been had. To say that Feeney breaks the rules of mystery-writing would be an understatement. My own take on the unorthodoxy is this: “You’re getting away with it this time, Alice Feeney, but I wouldn’t try it again.” (Flatiron, Aug. 30) Dennis Drabelle is a former mysteries editor of Book World.

The next question was “Why?” And the Cynic wrote, “Never been caught.” Cy got caught in today’s deal from a penny game. He was South and played at four spades after a “transfer” auction. West led the queen of clubs, and Cy took the ace and let the jack of trumps ride. Alas for Cy, East was Ed, our club expert. He won with the ace of trumps and led the ace and five of dia- monds. Fearing a ruff if he played low — and seeing 10 easy tricks — Cy took his king and led a second trump to dummy’s 10. He was aghast when Ed produced the queen ... and the queen of diamonds. If Ed wins the first trump with the queen, Cy will surely make game. If Ed switches to the ace and a low diamond, Cy can succeed by finess- ing, or by taking the king and finessing with the jack of hearts to get a pitch for dummy’s third diamond. DAILY QUESTION You hold: ♠AQ6♥Q975 ♦ A Q 5 ♣ 10 3 2 Your partner deals and opens one club, you bid one heart and he raises to two hearts. What do you say? ANSWER: Your partner has minimum opening values and will often have four-card heart support, but he may have raised with three-card support and a hand that looks good for suit play. Bid 3NT. If partner has four cards in hearts and unbalanced pattern, he can insist on playing at hearts. — Frank Stewart ©2022, TRIBUNE CONTENT AGENCY, LLC.

WEDNESDAY, JULY 13, 2022 . THE WASHINGTON POST EZ RE C7 MUTTS PATRICK McDONNELL ZITS JERRY SCOTT & JIM BORGMAN HOROSCOPE DILBERT SCOTT ADAMS JUDGE PARKER FRANCESCO MARCIULIANO & MIKE MANLEY BIRTHDAY | JULY 13 You are friendly and caring and always eager to help others, especially family members. You’re a loyal friend who is easy to talk to. Personally, you are adventurous. This is a wonderful year for you because you are getting recognition for what you do, perhaps a raise, a promotion or an award. Congratulations! Moon Alert: There are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions today until 12:15 a.m. The Moon is in Capricorn. FRAZZ JEF MALLETT CANDORVILLE DARRIN BELL ARIES GARFIELD JIM DAVIS BARNEY AND CLYDE (MARCH 21-APRIL 19). DUSTIN You might be surprised today STEVE KELLEY & JEFF PARKER THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN by a parent or an older family member, because they will say or do something that catches you off guard. Meanwhile, you might see the need to do home repairs, or possibly a home repair project will be interrupted. (Yikes!) TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20). Today is full of interruptions! You might have a chance to see new places and meet new faces. You might also envision original, new ideas. Travel plans will change, or perhaps you will suddenly have to travel when you didn’t expect to do so. WEINGARTENS & CLARK GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20). Keep an eye on your money and your assets today, because anything could happen. Something will catch you off guard, almost certainly. For example, you might find money; you might lose money. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22). Today is full of impulsive desires and unexpected activities. Expect to make new discoveries or encounter new people who will generate a sense of excitement in you. Oh yes, your interest is piqued! STAN LEE & ALEX SAVIUK LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22). Today your mind is shooting off in many directions like electrical impulses. Although this will make you feel restless, it also will help you come up with solutions to old problems. Research will definitely pay off. PRICKLY CITY SCOTT STANTIS LOOSE PARTS DAVE BLAZEK VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22). Today your ruler Mercury is dancing with unpredictable Uranus, which is why you feel mentally restless and eager for fun diversions. This is also why you might have an unusual arrangement with a friend or a member of a group. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22). A parent, boss or someone in a position of authority might surprise you today. They might have fresh news or suggestions. This also might relate to something unexpected taking place at home. NON SEQUITUR WILEY BABY BLUES RICK KIRKMAN & JERRY SCOTT SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21). Travel plans might be delayed or upset today; conversely, you might suddenly have to travel. Surprise news also might catch you off guard. Stay flexible today, because plans will change. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21). Keep an eye on your wallet today. Protect what you own from loss, theft or damage. Meanwhile, new ideas and approaches to how you handle shared property or deal with an inheritance might arise. BIG NATE LINCOLN PEIRCE ON THE FASTRACK BILL HOLBROOK CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19). This is an exciting day, and you’re eager for adventure! In part, this could be because a partner or close friend surprises you by doing or saying something unexpected. You might be introduced to someone who is unusual. BEETLE BAILEY MORT, BRIAN & GREG WALKER PEARLS BEFORE SWINE STEPHAN PASTIS AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18). Pet owners should be vigilant about their pets today. Meanwhile, interruptions at work will occur. They might create delays, even cancellations. Give yourself extra time to deal with the unexpected today. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20). Social plans will surprise you today. You might receive an exciting invitation or, conversely, a fun event might be delayed or canceled. Parents should be vigilant about their kids to avoid mishaps. — Georgia Nicols © 2022, KING FEATURES SYNDICATE, INC. PREVIOUS SUDOKU SOLUTION SPEED BUMP DAVE COVERLY DENNIS THE MENACE H.
