The main political takeaway of the Horowitz hearing is that Republicans can lie their asses off about anything related to Trump, then hold a hearing to propound the lie, and the DC press corps will treat it as if it’s as significant as an impeachment hearing.

I'm sorry, but this really has to be One Of Those Votes where there have to be penalties for voting against the party.

And also, anyone who decides to vote against impeachment, Republican or Democrat, is so supportive of or indifferent to corruption that they are themselves unfit for office.

He's either rubbing it in everyone's face, or he's not calling the shots, or both.

@MikeBloomberg  is wasting tons of cash for a lot of fronts these days, but dollar for dollar...

If they don't unify the caucus in defense of their own right to contest elections on anything resembling a fair basis against an inveterate criminal, why would any moderate ever feel compelled to vote for anything risky? We will get What Josh Gottheimer Wants–at best!–forever.

Hi, the president is engaging in a murder coverup to protect cash flows to his private businesses.

So, what he’s saying–hear me out–is that not standing up during a ceremonial event is one way to protest something unrelated to the event...

Lindsey Graham just falsely told a bunch of reporters that Democrats are never subjected to accusations of sexual misconduct, and warned them that if Kavanaugh fails, Republicans will gin up false accusations against future Democratic nominees to even the score. Wow.

@RealCandaceO  deleted this tweet. Don't let all the conservatives who spread this dreck memory hole what they did.

Regular reminder that the entire election turned on fake anger that Clinton had mishandled unmarked material at low-level classification.

It's wildly irresponsible of cable nets to just carry raw footage of Trump rambling slander for 20 minutes, even if they try valiantly afterward to correct the lies. He wants to inject lies into the discourse, but there's no reason to do it for him.

Brian Kemp is a true villain. Years from now, his supporters on the right–pretending not to see all this, but quietly hoping it works–will lie about where they stood and claim to have opposed him when it mattered.

Remember when Barack Obama won the presidency in a landslide, then won reelection by a healthy margin, and conservatives disagreed with the direction he tried to take the country, but they all withheld criticism, because, you know, love it or leave it?
