Will McGahn’s No-Show Tip Dems Towards Impeachment?

Democrats are very angry that former White House Counsel Don McGahn, at President Trump’s instruction, defied a subpoena Tuesday for his testimony. But what they intend to do about it is not yet clear. McGahn’s no-show may prove to be an inflection point in pushing Democrats towards an impeachment process for Trump. But so far, there is still a major division among the caucus — and even among those on the House Judiciary Committee — over whether to move forward with impeachment proceedings, w...

This Week: Putin Praises Mueller, Barr Goes Full Trump

Special counsel Robert Mueller earned an unlikely defender this week: Russian President Vladimir Putin. During a press conference with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Putin referred to Mueller’s work as “exotic” and “very objective” — a far-cry from how President Trump himself characterized the probe this week. The President unilaterally concluded Friday that the investigation began as an attempt to spy on his campaign. Those behind the supposed spying deserved “long jail sentences,” he added....
