Rosenstein could've retired or hunkered down after Barr's confirmation, but he was apparently determined to settle the debate over whether he's a cross-pressured man of principle or a finger-in-the-wind hack, and though I don't really get the impulse, I'm glad he cleared the air.

Note, Dems could use a similar formulation to question Mueller. Does he think "no reasonable prosecutor" would charge Don Jr? Could establish a conspiracy? Or just cautious prosecutors like him...

In purporting to exonerate Trump, Barr wrote he and Rosenstein "concluded that the evidence…is not sufficient " to charge Trump with obstruction.

He didn't use the standard @projectexile7 made famous when he said "no reasonable prosecutor " would charge Clinton in the email case.

@joshtpm @EricColumbusIt would end up being a proxy vote not just for whether Trump should be removed but for whether the constitutional design should be upended to protect Trump from the law. Let them take it.

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.

The White House disseminated doctored footage, also disseminated by Infowars, to smear a reporter. This will sound quaint, and has been true for sometime, but Sarah Sanders needs to resign and should be unwelcome in public life. https://t.co/u6GPfkljiK
