President Donald Trump, who possesses the ability to send liberals running for their smelling salts with the greatest of ease, sent a couple of tweets on Sunday that had Democrats in (another) tizzy. Railing against the ludicrous impeachment coup currently unraveling in the Senate, Trump blasted House Impeachment Manager Adam Schiff in such a way that the California lawmaker decided that he’d been “threatened.”

After two weeks of public impeachment hearings, a few things seem remarkably clear.

The first is that Trump clearly subscribes to the notion that his personal interest by definition is the state’s interest. And, conversely, that the institutions of state have no greater duty than to tend to his every whim. Hence the vitriol directed at the whistleblower who used perfectly legal channels to voice his concern about the July 25th phone call. Hence the threatening, taunting, barrage launched against Alexander Vindman, Marie Yovanovitch and others who have testified before Congress. Hence the ordering of state department and other officials to simply ignore Congressional subpoenas.
. These Congressmen may not have literally sworn a personal loyalty oath to Trump, but in their actions they might just as well have. In their high decibel table thumping, their insults, their weaving of new ad hoc defenses each time old ones were torn down by witnesses, in their embrace of any and every conspiracy theory peddled by Trump, by Giuliani, by far-right websites and overseas trolls, one hears the death rattle of democracy.

(WARREN G.) Harding died in August 1923. Had he not, it’s entirely likely he would have spent the remainder of his presidency mired in lawsuits, in Congressional investigations, and cowed by the ever-present threat of impeachment.

Flap and doodle. Balder and Dash.

Every so often, when I need to remind myself that there have been other brutally corrupt, know-nothing moments in American history, and other leaders who exhibit at least some of the same personality traits as does Donald Trump – laziness, greed, cupidity, short-sightedness, a penchant for corruption, an isolationist temperament – I turn to H.L. Mencken.

The Trump Team’s Legal Defense Was a Tour de Force of Hypocrisy

By Elie Mystal
Today 9:29 am

On Monday, the Republicans put on a full-throated defense of President Donald Trump in his impeachment trial in front of the United States Senate. It was a disjointed presentation. Unlike the case offered against Donald Trump by the seven Democratic House managers, the Republicans adopted no coherent narrative to explain why Trump did the things he’s admitted to doing, and couldn’t even stay on the same page in terms of whether he did them at all.
