@ThePlumLineGS We are so far beyond where all the red-lines, trip wires and alarms in our society ought to be and while I understand what's in it for the hypocrites and criminals in the GOP, I am not sure why Dem leaders would be so inert in the face of this. We need to know they why of that.

There are perverse incentives on the D side presidential race. If Trump appears stronger, then the candidate with the biggest lead over him gains significantly. If Trump is weaker and multiple candidates have credible solid leads, then different criteria may matter more.

@DefenseBaron I'm beginning to think @LindseyGrahamSC died secretly and was replaced by Stepford Lindsey. In fact, given the behavior of the GOP, perhaps the whole party has been given the Christopher Walken treatment (per the movie) and we have a sequel ready to be made: The Stepford Senate.

@AlonPinkas @lrozenUS: "We'll give the Palestinians a big check and everything will be fine. " Others at Conference: "And what do you want from the Palestinians in return? " US: "To accept the Israeli position on virtually anything. " Others: "... " US: "Also to rename Gaza...Trumpville. "

@JohnJHarwood Bribing the Palestinians with other people's money is the Trump-Kushner plan. It is classic Trump in that it is based on the idea that everyone has a price and it is classic Kushner in that it is naive and oblivious to history and the other complexities of the situation.

(Spoiler alert...or, alternatively, a warning.) There were about 10,000 characters in Game of Thrones. The most boring of all of them becomes king. Frankly, Arya is the big winner because she is getting the hell out of Westeros.

Something broke in America this week. We have been spiraling downward since Trump's election, but this week, we crossed a line. The President and his men began asserting that they were above the law--and effectively no one in our system did anything to stop them.

To a lawyer, the Mueller report describes multiple felonies by the president and some bad acts that might yet be proven to be crimes. To a historian, it describes the greatest betrayal of the United States since the Civil War, and the greatest by a president in our history.

If the president is letting a Chinese madam sell access at Mar-a-Lago to Chinese business people while his friends are getting serviced at businesses she started, he is exposing himself and the country to massive blackmail risk. Surely the IC and FBI are aware of this.

On this day in American history...the most extensive plot to kill senior US government officials and prominent Americans in history took place. It targeted two former presidents, their families, a former Secretary of State, a former head of the CIA, senior members of Congress...

So we know this, Russian government representatives reached out to the Trump campaign in 2015 and undertook multiple initiatives and had multiple points and series of contacts with Team Trump for the next couple years.

Impeachment may divide our country. The failure to impeach will wound our system, perhaps fatally. It is no contest really. If doing the right thing divides us, so be it. Better temporarily divided, than to be the generation who rendered the American experiment a failure.

Dems, When they go low, we should go high-high powered, high intensity, high impact. Jail those who can be jailed. Fine those who can be fined. Censure those who can be censured. Impeach those who must be impeached. The GOP won't stop attacking our system until they are stopped.

To those of you who are too young to remember Watergate, rest assured, this is worse. Trump is a much less competent, much more dangerous, vastly more corrupt president than Nixon. And this time his co-conspirators are the entire GOP leadership of the Congress.

The jury is not sequestered in the Manafort case. The president is publicly signaling them that he doesn't think Manafort should be convicted. It's an abuse of his position and possibly a crime. We need to reclaim our ability to be shocked, people, or the abuses will get worse.
