Impeachment lawyer income
Two lawyers with prominent roles in the House impeachment inquiry — Stephen Castor, the Republican general counsel for the Oversight Committee, and Daniel Goldman, a senior adviser for the Intelligence Committee Democrats — testified alongside one another Monday. One difference between the two, besides the parties they represent on their respective panels, is their salaries.
According to payroll records from August, Castor makes an annual salary of $165,000—that’s $3,000 more than Goldman makes.

PCP possession and a DUI on Independence Ave.
On Dec. 6, a vehicle traveling west in the 200 block of Independence Avenue Southwest made an illegal U-turn in the intersection at Washington Avenue Southwest and drove over the curb onto the median. A Capitol Police officer removed the first suspect from the vehicle and saw the passenger drop a burnt cigarette, which appeared to be dipped in a yellow-brown liquid.
The two suspects showed signs of impairment and the officer saw a glass vial containing a yellow-brown liquid “consistent with that of liquid PCP,” the Capitol Police report states. Both were arrested and the driver was also charged with driving under the influence (DUI).
