Republicans Have Stockholm Syndrome, and It’s Getting Worse. The GOP has stopped resisting President Trump and started accelerating his race to the bottom.

What else is there to say. The President of the United States and the Republican Party have declared war on the US Constitution. I pray that we emerge from what is hopefully the last battle of this Civil War. Democracy hangs in the balance.

If William Barr continues to defy subpoenas, Watergate offers House Democrats several options

In this fight, not acting to preserve its powers as a co-equal branch of government could relegate Congress to subservience in perpetuity.


The chairman’s words were prophetic: As an independent ground for impeachment, Article III held that Nixon should be impeached for refusing to produce tapes and records and thereby interfering with congressional exercise of its power of impeachment mandated by the constitution. That article was approved by a vote of 21-17 in July.

In its final report to the House in 1974, the committee explained why a president should be impeached for defying its subpoenas: “Unless the defiance of the committee’s subpoenas under these circumstances is considered grounds for impeachment, it is difficult to conceive of any president acknowledging that he is obligated to supply the relevant evidence necessary for Congress to exercise its constitutional responsibility in an impeachment proceeding.”

In 2019, the committee’s warning about what a future president may do has come to pass. Congress must act decisively to preserve its constitutional authority.

Barr isn’t chicken. Like Trump, he arrogantly believes he’s above the law. And so far, they’ve both been right. Why are people so afraid to loudly & clearly say these are bad men who have committed impeachable crimes? I’m tired of hashtags. #ChickenBarr

Power structure is bleak. Trump is firmly in control of the GOP Party apparatus, of DOJ (placing him de facto above Federal law), Treasury (IRS, FinCEN) under siege, Special Prosecutor gone, US Attorneys offices neutered.

House, some state governments, and #TheResistance remain.

Donald Trump can’t legally stop anyone he has fired from testifying before Congress. It is pure ridiculousness that he believes that.

Two sentences in Mueller’s report shows a ‘thorough FBI investigation’ might have implicated Trump in criminal conspiracy

Travis Gettys TRAVIS GETTYS
03 MAY 2019 AT 06:10 ET

The massive report compiled by special counsel Robert Mueller has been out for more than two weeks, but its length and density resist easy analysis — and offer numerous details that require closer attention.

One section, from Mueller’s analysis of President Donald Trump’s reaction the public confirmation of the FBI’s Russia investigation, and his subsequent firing of then-FBI director James Comey, offers a strong suggestion that the special counsel believed he was investigating a possible criminal conspiracy.

I feel that these two sentences from Volume II of the Mueller report have not gotten anything like the attention they deserve

Former George W. Bush speechwriter David Frum flagged two sentences from that analysis, found on pages 76-77, saying they had not received enough attention given their apparent weight.

“As described in Volume I,” the report states, “the evidence uncovered in the investigation did not establish that the President or those close to him were involved in the charged Russian computer-hacking or active-measure conspiracies, or that the President otherwise had an unlawful relationship with any Russian official.”

“But the evidence does indicate that a thorough FBI investigation would uncover facts about the campaign and the President personally that the President could have understood to be crimes or that would give rise to personal and political concerns,” the report continues.

This section of the analysis comes after Mueller’s investigators lay out evidence that Comey’s firing meets the three common elements in federal obstruction statutes — an obstructive act, a nexus between the obstructive act and an official proceeding and a corrupt intent.

“The President had a motive to put the FBI’s Russia investigation behind him,” Mueller’s team concluded in that analysis. “The evidence does not establish that the termination of Corney was designed to cover up a conspiracy between the Trump Campaign and Russia.”

But, as the two sentences flagged by Frum point out, Mueller’s team believed that a thorough FBI investigation would have turned up, at minimum, personally or politically damaging evidence against the president, or, at worst, evidence implicating Trump in a criminal conspiracy.

Robert Reich @RBReich 21h

Barr: It's not a crime to demand others to lie to investigators.
Trump: It's not a crime to collude with a foreign power to undermine democracy.
Giuliani: It's not a crime to pay hush money to silence someone days before an election.

At this point, what would be a crime?

Trump has gone 4 months now without nominating a new Secretary of Defense, and it’s not even a blip on the news cycle.

This is the kind of damage his presidency is doing to what we now perceive as incompetence and scandal.

BREAKING: House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler says that if Attorney General Bill Barr doesn’t provide Congress with the information they need in the next 48 hours, they will hold Barr in contempt of Congress. Barr could wind up in prison, where he belongs.
