Showdown with Nadler coming?
You could just call it a media stunt if you like
Politico: Senior Democrats pulling the plug on impeachment.
“…we are in danger of losing the trust of the American people if we choose partisan warfare”
“I have said what I’m going to say on the subject. That’s it.”
“Fantasy Island” is more like it.
“…Democratic leadership does not have its impeachment messaging straight.”
“I didn’t hear the words.”
“… a broader retreat from conversations about impeachment.”
“What is evident is that President Trump is abdicating his responsibility to defend our nation from Russian attacks…”
Collins: The hell they are.
“Do not pursue it for trivial partisan political purposes.”
At the intersection of politics and culture
“We’ll defeat a lot of Republican Senators next year.”
“The hearing the other day was an inflection point.”
“This is fine.” “No, it isn’t.” “Yes, it is.”
Mueller-mas II: Non-Purview Boogaloo was a bust.
“I was beyond shocked.”
“Was that a hill to die on? A hill that no one understands!”
Get back to work.
“… this should have blown their minds.”
Just “another white guy in the race.”
Er … winning?
For some reason
“I don’t think it’s healthy.”
“I have had enough. I believe a good many of my colleagues have had enough.”
And this time he might mean it
“If the goods are there, you must impeach.”
“When faced with a crisis of this magnitude, I cannot with a clean conscience ignore my duty to defend the Constitution.”
Nonetheless they persist
The long haul
Somehow I think he misses the court date
