Schiff's speech last night made a point which with most Americans agree (according to polling): Trump puts his own interests before the country's.
In case you haven't been watching Fox ‚Ä" or seeing Trump's unceasing promotion of it ‚Ä"¬†here's what you've been missing.
Schiff outlined a 10-point argument for Trump's having been acting on his own behalf in regards to Ukraine. Here's my assessment of his points.
Trump's allies have eagerly used Nadler's rhetoric from 1998 against him. Today, Nadler returned the favor.
What this headline lacks in specificity about the subject at hand, it hopefully makes up for in getting the point across.
Steve Mnuchin said Greta Thunberg needed to go study economics before offering solutions on climate change. So I talked to a guy with four degrees to get his thoughts.
You may have heard that today was Trump's heaviest day on Twitter as president. It almost matched his heaviest day ever, which was also spent sharing other people's thoughts about stuff they were watching on TV.
With the Democratic impeachment argument underway, Trump's social media allies are offering a mostly-misleading counternarrative.
Republican senators, Tuesday: We don't need to allow more evidence.
Trump, Wednesday: Man, the Dems haven't even seen the material we've got.
Trump says that his victory in 2016 was a function of Clinton's unpopularity. He's sort of right and sort of wrong ‚Ä"¬†but apparently not worried about the irony of blithely pointing to that factor.
CNN's new poll shows a surge for Sanders, which is good timing. What the data suggest more broadly, though, is a very uncertain Democratic field.
Trump's affection for performative defenses framed in political terms will leave him pleased with how his lawyers kicked off his impeachment trial.
Some Democrats hope that Roberts might try and wrest control of the Senate trial from McConnell. Unlikely for several reasons, including the limits on his power.
A new poll shows broad support for calling witnesses in the Senate trial ‚Ä"¬†but really shows the same broad divide on impeachment that's been there since day one.
Imagine a criminal trial in which half the jury was friends with the accused, the accused could ignore subpoenas and if evidence emerged after the indictment it wasn't admissible.
I decided to use closed-captioning and chyron data to figure out which story made the cable news networks more, Vince Vaughn or Lev Parnas. And guess what.
Went through each of the Dem debates to see what states they talked about the most. Their home states, sure ‚Ä" but also Iowa Iowa Iowa.
Our new poll showing the robust opposition to Trump among black voters ‚Ä"¬†paired with his claim that black voters were rushing to become Republicans ‚Ä" prompted me to look at a *lot* of data about registration and voting patterns.
I suspect it's not a coincidence that there's so little evidence of Trump getting his hands dirty on Ukraine.
So here's something a little different.
A few days ago I came across an image of sheet music from 1868 called "Impeachment Polka," focused on the impeachment of Andrew Johnson. Dug into it a bit, talked to some folks ‚Ä"¬†and found a pianist to perform it.
With the GAO finding, it's worth walking through what we already knew about the halt in aid to Ukraine.
With all of the new revelations from Parnas, I thought it was worth walking through the cast of characters ‚Ä" or, at least, a subset of them.
The new documents from Parnas give us a much clearer sense of how ‚Ä" and why ‚Ä"¬†Yovanovitch was targeted for removal.
There are a lot of fascinating details in the handwritten notes Lev Parnas provided to House investigators. I walked through their apparent significance.
The debate starts shortly but there's important new impeachment details: More evidence that Giuliani's Ukraine efforts were for Trump's personal benefit.
If you hear "cancel culture" on cable news, guess which network you were most likely to have heard it on.
Since it's an election year, maybe Trump will start paying lip service to deficit spending again.
