Making the "witch hunt" a daily talking point with Nancy Pelosi as the face of it is going to energize his stupid deplorables even more. I think there is plenty there to indict him in his taxes and with everything Mueller is doing, but I just think it would be better to come in the form of something from Mueller directly. The best thing Dems in the now controlled House can do is protect Mueller, his investigation, and secure and maintain all the documents that House Repubs under Nunez have been trying to bury and destroy.


At the risk of hyperbole, the U.S. is in deep trouble if Congress doesn't utilize its oversight role on legitimate investigations because it fears that the President or his supporters
will become energized and/or hate it. You are right the democrats may at one point have to make hard choices about doing their job vs. political expediency. But if Congress tacitly agrees to sweep fudge under the rug for political reasons, the corruption that's been nibbling on the edges of our democracy will eventually subsume it. (And yes, that goes for either party controlling Congress).

The current administration has done a bunch of shady ish that is outside of Mueller's province. E.g. emoluments violations generally, pervasive ethics "lapses (Zinkie, Carson, etc), the half-assed FEMA relief effort in Puerto Rico, etc. If no investigation is done, those issues all just get swept under the rug.

RBG falling and the WSJ headline that said Russia seems to be the big beneficiary of Trump's "tough on Iran" stance, and doctored video from yesterday. I really just don't even know where to start.

Must have been embarrassing getting struck out by a guy older than your dad (and who looked as old as your grandpa)

Edit: sorry that was Joe, not Phil. Joe only looked as old as your uncle
