Trump’s greatest sin wasn’t what we thought it was - The Washington Post. Impt point: Trying to fire Comey is not necessarily a crime, given Article 2 of the Constitution. But trying to fire Mueller is unmistakeable obstruction of justice. https://t.co/vPylMJC5LA

It’s time to revise the received wisdom that impeachment would backfire & help Trump. Without a trial, Trump’s gross abuses of power and clear obstruction of justice will remain unconnected dots in a report most voters won’t read. A trial will pull it all together and bury him.

The fact that until now almost no voters ask presidential candidates about the Mueller Report on the trail is irrelevant to whether the House must now perform its constitutional duty. The candidates can talk about other issues if they want while the House impeaches this year.

There’s plenty of time after impeachment for the Dems to talk about health care, jobs etc. In meantime, they’ll have made a convincing case for why Trump is unfit for office & thus for reelection. It wont be easy for Republicans to defend him on the trail after the Senate trial.

House impeachment hearings in Watergate opened on May 9, 1974 and articles of impeachment were approved July 29. If Nixon hadn’t resigned, an impeachment trial in the Senate would have begun in August. That’s a perfect schedule for this year. It leaves 15 months til election.

I strongly agree with @ron_fournier on this. Past press secretaries have all said the only thing they have is their credbility. Sanders’ is shot. No White House reporter should ever ask her a question again. It’s a total waste of time. https://t.co/xHP2xkIeFf

Mueller Report now seen by both sides as facts, not charges. So Trump should be repeatedly asked specific questions about it—shouted on the South Lawn if necessary. Eg: “Do you approve of your campaign chairman in 2016 sharing polls and strategy for the Midwest with Russians?”

Why is it that almost none of the discussion of the Wall includes the fact that illegal immigration into the US peaked 11 years ago and has declined ever since? Seems kinda elemental.

Note to Democrats and media: Do not use ever use “chain migration.” It’s a loaded right wing phrase like “death taxes.” The proper phrase for the provision, according to the Immigration Act of 1965, is “family reunification.”

Trump attacks Pelosi and lies about her in CBS interview to air during the Super Bowl. CBS should either run that part only on “Face the Nation” where it can be corrected by the panel or give Pelosi equal time. The latter would set a good precedent for respecting Congress.

This myth that a sitting president cannot be indicted is getting tiresome. That is nowhere in the Constitution and the Supreme Court has never ruled on it. A DOJ guidance policy has no legal standing. Mueller has said his mandate isn't to indict but fed prosecutors in NY could.

This is an utterly terrifying column from former top official. It suggests that next month the GOP may try to sneak through a huge court packing scheme that—my words—amounts to a judicial coup attempt by Trump. https://t.co/XxLQ3E8YHY
