Read This

I read through this a number of times before deciding to publish it. But I strongly, strongly recommend it to you. The author of the email is a former federal prosecutor. When I first read it I confess I found it all a bit loopy or improbable. But as I thought about it and read it again I eventually found it quite compelling.

What’s next in impeachment: A busy December, and on to 2020

After two weeks of public hearings, Democrats could soon turn the impeachment process over to the House Judiciary Committee. At some point in the coming weeks, the House intelligence panel will submit a report to the Judiciary panel, and then Democrats will consider drafting articles of impeachment on President Donald Trump’s dealings with Ukraine and the administration’s attempts to block the investigation. There could be several steps along the way, including a Judiciary committee vote, a Ho...
