Five Reporters!

This has been a very significant week in the “war on Trump” (hey, I can get away with saying “war on Trump” since Donald Trump accused a completely constitutional impeachment inquiry of being a “coup”). So many important things happened this week, you may have been a bit overwhelmed and become insensitive to their significance. […]

The Don

What’s really frightening about this comic is that the artist didn’t have to change much of the language to show how much Donald Trump is acting like a mafia boss. Trump totally acts and talks like he is totally above the law. Yesterday’s letter from the White House to Congress basically asserted the laughable premise […]

This is what “spine” looks like

Will Wilkinson has written a devastatingly fantastic opinion piece in the New York Times titled “Trump Has Disqualified Himself From Running in 2020“. It is short, to the point, and incredibly well written. I’m going to quote the first few paragraphs, but it gets even better after that. Go read it! “I think the American […]

The Crime and the Coverup

Direct quotes from the whistleblower memo: I have received information from multiple U.S. Government officials that the President of the United States is using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country in the 2020 U.S. election. The interference includes, among other things, pressuring a foreign country to investigate one of […]

The Road to Impeachment?

By now, pretty much everyone knows that the Democrats are trying to decide whether or not to impeach Donald Trump. However, impeachment is only half the game, and while Democrats control the House and can impeach Trump anytime they want, it is up to the Republican controlled Senate to convict him and then remove him […]

Hypocrisy: Lies and Obstruction

You don’t even have to be convicted of a crime to lose your job in this constitutional republic if the Senate determines that your conduct as a public official is clearly out of bounds in your role… because impeachment is not about punishment. Impeachment is about cleansing the office. Impeachment is about restoring honor and […]

In a Functional Country, We Would Be on the Road to Impeachment

This is the title of an opinion piece in the NY Times. It is a good, thoughtful rant, and I don’t disagree with much in it. Note that it doesn’t say that we should impeach Donald Trump, just that if our country weren’t so screwed up and dysfunctional, we would be impeaching him. Our country […]

He’s just not worth it

Nancy Pelosi was asked by the Washington Post how she felt about impeaching Donald Trump: I’m not for impeachment. This is news. I’m going to give you some news right now because I haven’t said this to any press person before. But since you asked, and I’ve been thinking about this: Impeachment is so divisive […]

Unprovoked Attack

The White House has started attacking special counsel Robert Mueller. Why would they do that? Donald Trump continues to say the investigation is a “witch hunt”, and even called it “the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history”. As if that weren’t crazy enough, Trump then tweeted: They made up a phony […]

Impeachable Offenses?

© Jen Sorensen At this point, Donald Trump has screwed up so badly that it will make it next to impossible for the Republicans to pass any of their more radical agenda like repealing the ACA, privatizing Medicare, further widening the gap between wealthy and poor by rewriting the tax code, or destroying the environment.

Make Impeachment Great Again

Professor Allan Lichtman, who gained notoriety by predicting that Donald Trump would win the presidential election, is now predicting that Trump will be impeached. Often, political predictions are not worth much, but Lichtman did manage to correctly predict the last eight presidential elections. Lichtman even says that Trump could even be impeached by a Republican […]

Russian Trouble

Trump’s National Security Advisor had to resign because he lied about contacts with the Russians. Now it looks like Trump’s Attorney General also lied about contacts with the Russians. After all the noise from Republicans about how Hillary Clinton should be in jail, not to mention impeaching Bill Clinton for lying, it will be interesting […]

Undoing Pence

Unlike his boss, Vice President Mike Pence is an experienced politician. In fact, before becoming VP, Pence was the governor of Indiana. So we should be able to get some idea of what kind of president Pence might be, if (for some reason) Donald Trump stops being the president. Which is why this report from […]

Unimpeachable Logic

So what has the new Republican majority in Congress done so far? Well, first they were distracted for months by the confirmation of Loretta Lynch. Even though many Republicans actually liked her, the powerful GOP need to not do anything that Obama wants was strong enough for them to delay her confirmation longer than any […]
