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.

"I want the media on its knees begging for my forgiveness," is loony totalitarian dictator talk that's typically followed by making your horse a Senator (or at least empowering your nebish son-in-law to make ME peace.) But honestly, most loony authoritarians wouldn't go this far.

Remember the part of the Mueller Report that was about being attacked by a foreign enemy? You know the whole national security-preservation of democracy part? So do we. And that's what @brooks_rosa @KoriSchake and @rosenbergerlm discuss on this latest, really important DSR.

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.

On this day in American history...the most extensive plot to kill senior US government officials and prominent Americans in history took place. It targeted two former presidents, their families, a former Secretary of State, a former head of the CIA, senior members of Congress...

To those of you who are too young to remember Watergate, rest assured, this is worse. Trump is a much less competent, much more dangerous, vastly more corrupt president than Nixon. And this time his co-conspirators are the entire GOP leadership of the Congress.

The jury is not sequestered in the Manafort case. The president is publicly signaling them that he doesn't think Manafort should be convicted. It's an abuse of his position and possibly a crime. We need to reclaim our ability to be shocked, people, or the abuses will get worse.

I woke up very early today. I could not sleep. While it sounds melodramatic to say it, it is because I came away from yesterday's Kavanaugh hearing feeling more acutely than ever that something is profoundly wrong with the way our country works.
