Good morning and happy Iron Bowl Eve! Here’s your Daily News for Friday, November 23.
1. Suspect killed, others injured in Galleria shooting.
- A man was shot and killed by a police after a fight at Riverchase Galleria in Hoover that resulted in gunfire that injured a teen and a 12-year-old girl.
- The shooting occurred shortly before 10:00 p.m. Thanksgiving night.
- Police say two Hoover officers in the mall confronted a 21-year-old man from Hueytown with a gun and one of the officers shot and killed him.

- Capt. Greg Rector said in a news conference a 12-year-old girl struck by gunfire was hospitalized. She was reported in stable condition at Children’s Hospital.

2. Nancy Pelosi makes shrewd moves to regain Speaker’s gavel.
- Nancy Pelosi entered the post-election race for House Speaker with as many as 17 Democrats opposing her.
- That’s almost enough to derail a bid completely, and certainly enough to give Team Pelosi pause before taking it to the floor.
- Now, just a few weeks later, Pelosi is all but assured to reclaim the gavel thanks to a series of shrewd political moves.
- It’s her “honey over vinegar” approach of rewarding dissenters instead of punishing them that seems to have worked.
- Read Mike DeBonis’ and Robert Costa’s piece in The Washington Post for the full story.
A Message from the Stop The HIT Coalition
- Sen. Doug Jones: Don’t let Alabama small businesses and middle-class families get sacked by the 2020 Health Insurance Tax.
- Absent immediate action, the 2020 Health Insurance Tax will begin penalizing hardworking Alabamians on January 1, 2020 by driving up their cost of care as much as $450.
- Sen. Jones can help score lower premiums for Alabama’s 765,000 small business employees by supporting bipartisan legislation (S. 3063) to block the HIT in 2020.
- Ask Sen. Jones to help take S. 3063 to the end zone and support legislation to stop the 2020 Health Insurance Tax.
3. News Briefs.
Trump frustrated by judges
- Incensed by a ruling against his migrant asylum policy, President Donald Trump demanded “some common sense” from America’s judges and directed his ire at a liberal-leaning appeals court.
- He professed respect for Chief Justice John Roberts, with whom he is engaged in a startling public dispute over the independence of the judiciary, yet shrugged off the Republican appointee as someone who “can say what he wants.”
- Trump, still seething over Monday’s decision by a President Barack Obama-nominated judge, began his Thanksgiving Day by asserting on Twitter that courts should defer to his administration and law enforcement on border security because judges “know nothing about it and are making our Country unsafe.”

Impeach? House Democrats say no so fast
- Whatever happened to trying to impeach President Donald Trump?
- As House Democrats begin laying out the vision for their new majority, that item is noticeably missing from the to-do list and firmly on the margins.
- The agenda for now includes spending on public works projects, lowering health care costs and increasing oversight of the administration.
- It’s the balance that Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi is trying to strike in the new Congress between those on her party’s left flank who are eager to confront the president, and her instinct to prioritize the kitchen-table promises that Democrats made to voters who elected them to office.
- “We shouldn’t impeach the president for political reasons and we shouldn’t not impeach the president for political reasons,” Pelosi recently told The Associated Press.
- Okay. Read more from Lisa Mascaro and Mary Claire Jalonick from Capitol Hill HERE.
China denies hacking report
- President Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping are supposed to have a highly-anticipated meeting during the G-20 summit in Argentina next week.
- But it could be a little awkward seeing as how the United States is now officially accusing China of multiple bad fatih trade practices.
- China on Thursday rejected a U.S. government report that accuses Beijing of stepping up efforts to steal technology.
- The Commerce Ministry dismissed the U.S. Trade Representative’s report as “new unwarranted accusations” and said Washington was wrecking economic relations.
- Our two countries have raised tariffs on billions of dollars of each other’s goods in a fight over U.S. complaints that Beijing steals or pressures companies to hand over technology in violation of its market-opening obligations.
