President Trump Says He Would Fight Impeachment in the Supreme Court. That’s Not How It Works

Constitutional experts say that President Donald Trump got a fundamental fact about impeachment wrong in his latest complaint about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Under the Constitution, the House of Representatives can vote to begin the impeachment process if it believes a president is guilty of misconduct in office, and the Senate then holds a…

Trump Swerves From Mueller To The Border In Rambling Morning Of Tweets

President Donald Trump was at it again Wednesday morning. In a series of tweets, the commander-in-chief complained yet again about press coverage of his administration, scrutiny from congressional Democrats, and migrants and asylum seekers attempting to enter the United States. Trump first revived his accusation against “United Kingdom Intelligence” for “helping Obama Administration Spy” on his campaign. The British GCHQ rebutted the claim, aggressively, without naming Trump. “Former CIA ana...

Four Questions Joe Biden Needs To Answer To Win The Dem Nomination

After months of speculation, former Vice President Joe Biden will officially kick off his 2020 presidential bid on Thursday. Now comes the hard part. Biden enters the campaign as the immediate front-runner, with a lead in early national polling as well as in a number of key early-voting states. He’s got a deep reservoir of goodwill from Democratic primary voters who fondly remember the Obama years, decades-long ties with a number of powerful national unions, and near-universal name recognitio...

A Running List Of The Probes That Pose The Greatest Threat To Trumpworld

It was never just about Russia. When Donald Trump entered the Oval Office in January 2017, he brought with him an ever-evolving cloud of scandal that has hung low over his entire administration. There are currently several ongoing congressional, city, state and federal investigations into Trump’s personal finances and sexual relationships, his real estate company and his family members. Some — like the lawsuit alleging corruption at the Trump Foundation, twin suits alleging Trump’s D.C. hotel ...

Missouri GOP Hints At Voting Rights Overhaul To Undermine Immigrant Vote

Missouri’s GOP legislature appears to be considering, again, a change to its redistricting process that would have major impacts on the political representation of immigrant-heavy regions. Republican lawmakers filed an amendment that would change the standard in how legislative districts are drawn. It would require that they be drawn on a vague “one person, one vote, using data ” basis, rather on the basis of total population, as is currently the practice in all 50 states. The tweak in langu...

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court on Tuesday grappled with a Wisconsin law that allows law enforcement to draw blood without a warrant from suspected drunken drivers who have become unconscious.

Conservative Justices Seem Inclined To Keep Citizenship Question On Census

With so much at stake — the apportionment of political power nationwide, the adequate representation of immigrant communities, the scope of executive power —the Supreme Court arguments Tuesday over whether the Trump administration could add a citizenship question to the 2020 census wound up being highly technical. The much-anticipated hearing included ample discussion of phrases like “comparative errors,” “maximal need,” and “credible quantitative evidence.” What was not evident was any un...

Gorsuch Comments Preview Endgame If Citizenship Question Is Added To Census

Justice Neil Gorsuch can’t wait to let states exclude noncitizens from redistricting. Multiple times during Tuesday’s hearing on the Trump administration’s move to add a citizenship question to the census, Gorsuch returned to vague allusions to an unsuccessful 2016 Supreme Court case that dealt with that possibility. Gorsuch’s lines of inquiry didn’t get too much traction at Tuesday’s arguments, which mostly focused on the technical considerations of Secretary Wilbur Ross’ decision to include...

Trump and Massive Resistance

I’ve hinted at this in a few posts. It’s time to confront it head on. The White House isn’t doing the standard tussling with Congress about oversight: some stonewalling, some negotiation, taking some questions of privilege to court. It’s more accurately characterized as massive resistance. The Congress has a constitutionally mandated responsibility to oversee the executive branch. They are flatly refusing to comply with ordinary document production and testimonial requests across the board. It’s...
