Mueller documents dozens of instances in which the president’s own people reined him in. If these officials had gone along with him, the evidence of obstruction would likely be much stronger, and calls for impeachment on the Hill today would almost certainly be louder.

10. Will the report move the needle of public opinion at all? There’s been very little shift during the month that’s passed since Barr's letter. A new Monmouth poll shows 6 in 10 want the full report but 54% also want Congress to move onto other issues.

Trump is giving the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor he can give, to Sheldon Adelson’s wife Miriam. He’s counting on Adelson money to support his 2020 re-election bid. Is handing out honors like this worse than letting donors stay in the Lincoln Bedroom?

Brett Kavanaugh is telling the senators that his mom was the local prosecutor when he was in high school. That's when the alleged assault occurred. It's a reminder of the privileged position he held back then & another reason Dr. Ford might have been reluctant to come forward.

Brett Kavanaugh sounds VERY partisan in this speech. He's saying opposition to his nomination is based on “revenge on behalf of the Clintons” and anger that Trump won the 2016 election. Doesn't make it him sound very independent.
