President Trump’s tweets criticizing Justice Department staff and commenting on ongoing investigations, according to Attorney General William Barr, have made it “impossible for me to do my work.” The remarks, which came after Trump blasted prosecutors for seeking a sentence of up to nine years in jail for Trump friend Roger Stone, who was accused of lying to Congress and witness tampering. Trump’s tirade came only as Justice Department officials announced that they would overrule the prosecutors and seek a lighter sentence. Democrats have called for an investigation into whether Trump affected the case inappropriately. Barr admitted that the timing seemed to be off in an interview with ABC News, but added, “I’m not going to be bullied or manipulated by anybody.”
This day in history, february 14, 2020
St. Valentine’s Day, a liturgical celebration of one or more early Christian saints called Valentinus, was the origin of Valentine’s Day.
Top 100 songs of the week (february 14, 2020)
During the High Middle Ages, when the practice of courtly love was thriving, February 14th became synonymous with romantic love for the first time. This day developed into an occasion in which lovers demonstrated their love for one another by giving roses, offering confectionery, and sending Valentine cards throughout the 18th century in England.
In mid-February, there are varying views about who or what was commemorated. Valentine or Valentinus are martyred saints, according to others. The most famous legend tells of the saint defying Emperor Claudius II’s decree banning young men from marrying because he believed single men made better soldiers. St. Valentine will marry young lovers in secret rather than having them sneaking around (or trusting in the force of love). It’s likely that the weddings were done by another Valentine. In any case, at least two of them were executed as a result of their acts.

Venus, the brilliant planet, dominates the twilight sky.
Despite the fact that the Milky Way is illuminated by the combined light of billions of stars, it is barely visible in this picture. Instead, our attention is drawn to Venus, a much closer and lighter object to the left of middle that shines like a diamond. Jeff Dai is a writer who lives in New York City The 14th of February
On Valentine’s Day, the planet named after the Roman goddess of love shines brightly in the evening sky, which seems like a fitting homage. Within a half-hour after sunset, Venus shines brilliantly at magnitude –4.2 and appears in the west-southwest. When the landscape darkens, it becomes much more noticeable. It isn’t until after 8:30 p.m. local time that the planet sets. When you look through a telescope at Venus, you’ll see a 17-inch-wide disk that’s about two-thirds illuminated.
