Bold thought for Dems: We can do better than Bill Clinton and Barack Obama with our next presidential candidate/president. Appreciate what they did that was good...but maybe move on to fixing the rigged American system they helped perpetuate.

Something broke in America this week. We have been spiraling downward since Trump's election, but this week, we crossed a line. The President and his men began asserting that they were above the law--and effectively no one in our system did anything to stop them.

If the president is letting a Chinese madam sell access at Mar-a-Lago to Chinese business people while his friends are getting serviced at businesses she started, he is exposing himself and the country to massive blackmail risk. Surely the IC and FBI are aware of this.
