@tribelaw  tells @JRubinBlogger  that Trump’s comment "amounts to a confession that these Republicans at least, know they rule by ignorance, fear and withdrawal from political participation and not by popular consent."

U.S. intelligence agencies were issuing warnings in January and February about the global danger posed by the coronavirus while President Trump and Republicans played down the threat and failed to take action that might have slowed the spread.

Trump is right in his essential premise: If we made it too easy and convenient for people to vote, Republicans would lose more often than they do now, writes @paulwaldman1 

For many Republicans, the fact that the pandemic seemed poised to help Democrats and hurt President Trump's administration mattered more than any other fears they had about the virus, writes @DouthatNYT 

Republicans are more excited to vote for President Trump than Democrats are for Joe Biden, their likely nominee, polling shows

Republicans and right-wing pundits, and even some left-wing pundits, are effectively saying, “Real impressed with Donald Trump denouncing everything Donald Trump has said and done up to this point and briefly sounding like he gives a damn. Total change here.” 🙄

#MitchPlease Trump talked about “reopening” America LAST WEEK. Now they’re projecting 100K deaths. Now the Republicans are trying to blame his failure to respond to this pandemic on impeachment. Don’t forget the trial was OVER on Feb 5 and Trump held a RALLY on Feb 28.

And that, friends, is precisely why Donald Trump and Republicans are doing everything they can to limit how many people vote.

Fmr. Bloomberg adviser Tim O'Brien: "If Republicans really want to make an issue out of Hunter Biden ... there is going to be a scorched earth response aimed at all of the Trump children that is going to be unlike anything they've experienced thus far."

President Trump was impeached for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. By refusing to call witnesses and compel documents, Senate Republicans have chosen to become accomplices in his cover-up. #DefendOurDemocracy 

It would be so easy to fix our weak and very stupid Democrat inspired immigration laws. In less than one hour, and then a vote, the problem would be solved. But the Dems don’t care about the crime, they don’t want any victory for Trump and the Republicans, even if good for USA!

It will be REAL hard for Trump Republicans, who are now suggesting we risk 2.5% of the population - or 8+ million people - so we can prematurely reopen the economy, to make the pro-life case after this.

For those who were convicted of lying to cover up his crimes, Trump urges lighter sentences and dangles pardons. He demands his enemies be investigated and prosecuted. He retaliates against witnesses and public servants. Republicans’ response? Silence.

Dear Senate Republicans: President Trump didn’t learn any “lessons” when you excused his abuse of power. And now you are responsible for every new abuse he commits.

President Trump is exacting his retribution, removing those who complied with subpoenas, came forward, and testified about his misconduct. These are the actions of a man who believes he is above the law — Precisely the kind of conduct Congressional Republicans enabled.

When Pres. Trump rails against Dems for doing nothing, he may be confused by how government works. I will explain. If you pass bills in the House (gun control, election security, etc.) and they die in the Senate the do nothings are McConnell and his fellow Republicans.

The question is not whether Trump has committed impeachable crimes. He has. The question is whether Republicans in Congress will affirm that an American president is not above the law.

Donald Trump and Republicans just celebrated voting to let thousands of Americans die so that billionaires get tax breaks. Think about that.
