Reliance on Unproven App Mars Iowa's Democratic Caucuses
Democrats looked forward to the first results in their 2020 presidential primary yesterday.
Preliminary results have not been released due to widespread problems with an app designed for reporting precinct-level results to the state party.

Some local leaders could not download or run the app, and there were issues even with those who could use it to report:

Senator Warren Attacks Chief Justice Roberts During Impeachment Trial
Yesterday, during the Senate impeachment trial's questions phase, 2020 Democratic presidential candidate and Senator Elizabeth Warren submitted a question that attacked Chief Justice John Roberts who is presiding over the Senate impeachment trial as required by the Constitution:
Roberts read the question aloud: “At a time when large majorities of Americans have lost faith in government, does the fact that the chief justice is presiding over an impeachment trial in which Republican senators have thus far refused to allow witnesses or evidence contribute to the loss of legitimacy of the chief justice, the Supreme Court, and the Constitution?”Read more

However, according to the New York Times reporter Ken Vogel: “The Ukrainians weren't made aware that the assistance was being delayed/reviewed until more than one month after the call."
