More on Census report on turnout @ed_kilgore:

The path after #Mueller: Keep impeachment on the table but first use hearings & further inquiries to make clear to the majority just how outrageous #Trump's behavior is. Dems must avoid helping Trump by tearing each other apart over impeachment.

The #MuellerReport is the beginning, not the end. It will embolden House Democrats who are already investigating #Trump and increase pressure to launch formal impeachment inquiries, even though Democratic leaders are reluctant to go there. My take

Could we take a step back and note that we have a president whom Russia actively intervened in our democratic process to elect?
#Mueller: Russia created "a targeted operation that by early 2016 favored candidate Trump and disparaged candidate Clinton."

From @washingtonpost: prosecutors did not assess whether Trump’s campaign “colluded” with Russia.
From #Mueller: "collusion is not a specific offense or theory of liability found in the United States Code, nor is it a term of art in federal criminal law.”

A column I don't regret writing:

Even before the #CorkerKickBack went viral, this tax bill was a festival of corruption, full of provisions that help donors and tilt the tax code to the privileged and corporations. (And, please, no more talk of #Trump as a "populist.")

McConnell says "we've cemented the Supreme Court right-of-center for a generation."
So much for the legitimacy of an institution that is not supposed to be partisan. So much for its being an "umpire" calling "balls and strikes." So much for the fraud of "originalism."

Defeating #Trump is the absolutely necessary first step toward a more humane politics. This means the left and center-left cannot spend their time tearing each other apart.
