Schiff says ppl saying "why don't you just wait?" are saying why not let President Trump get away w/ one more thing? Schiff says bluntly: "Why don't you just let him cheat one more time?...Why not let him have foreign help one more time? That is what that argument amounts to."

Mood at White House is one of inevitability. WH aide tells me, “They should have done this a year ago. This is what they’ve always wanted to do. This is what coastal elites have wanted to do...They just don’t like him. It’s all about overturning the results of the 2016 election.”

Rep Nadler lays out why Dems feel this needs to happen now, less than a year before next election: "We do not take this action lightly...Unlike Pres Trump, we understand our duty first and foremost is to protect the Constitution...The integrity of our next election is at risk."

I asked President Trump what he thinks of people seeing his rhetoric as emboldening white nationalists and whether he was concerned that Republicans would be seen as supporting white nationalists. His response: "That's a racist question."

Sarah Sanders is repeating over and over again that it's the law to separate immigrant children and from their parents. Fact check: It's not the law. The Trump administration is making the decision to do this and does not have to do it.

I'm simply asking the questions the public wants to know.

Confirmed: A source familiar tells me the State Department IG briefing on the Hill is about retaliation against State Department officials who are trying to cooperate with House Democrats.

This is E.U. Amb. Sondland's line for throwing everyone under the bus: "Again, everyone was in the loop." People thrown include: -Pres Trump -VP Pence -Acting WH Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney -Sec of State Pompeo -Rudy Giuliani -Sec of Energy Rick Perry -John Bolton -Kurt Volker

A note: I followed up the president calling my question "racist" with a policy question about his proposed middle class tax cut because that's what journalists do. We press on. We focus on the privilege of asking questions for a living. We do the work.
