At a Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee hearing today on tougher regulations for deep-sea oil drilling, a commercial fisherwoman stood up and poured a jar of mock oil in reality, syrup all over herself in protest of her livelihood being destroyed, probably. Security guard’s inner thoughts: “You’re paying for my dry cleaning, crazy woman.”
But that wasn’t the only surprise appearance at the many various oil hearings happening in Congress today. There was also …
Okay, it wasn’t a surprise at all. But still, he’s an actor — what is he doing there?! Just saving the world, that’s what. As we learned a couple of weeks ago, Costner, when he’s not barely emoting in films, has been developing a filtration system that can cleanse water of oil, which might come in handy right about now. “It may seem like an unlikely scenario that I am the one delivering this technology at this moment in time, but from where I’m sitting it is equally inconceivable that these machines are not already in place,” he said with a monotone delivery, presumably.

Add Giuliani to your pardon bingo card
Rudolph W. Giuliani, President Trump’s lawyer who has led the most extensive efforts to damage his client’s political rivals and undermine the election results, discussed with the president as recently as last week the possibility of receiving a pre-emptive pardon before Mr. Trump leaves office, according to two people told of the discussion.
It was not clear who raised the topic. The men have also talked previously about a pardon for Mr. Giuliani, according to the people. Mr. Trump has not indicated what he will do, one of the people said.
Mr. Giuliani’s potential criminal exposure is unclear. He was under investigation as recently as last summer by federal prosecutors in Manhattan for his business dealings in Ukraine and his role in ousting the American ambassador there, a plot that was at the heart of the impeachment of Mr. Trump.
