      Don’t Withhold the Articles of Impeachment

      The House of Representatives took a historic step this week by approving two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump. Now the House’s leaders are mulling an unprecedented next step: withholding those articles from the Senate—and effectively blocking the president’s trial there—as leverage in negotiations over the rules...

      President* Donald Trump

      The House of Representatives voted to impeach Donald Trump on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress on Wednesday. For most of the members of the House who were there, it will likely be the most important vote they ever cast. Impeachment is an extraordinary process by any standard. In the 230-year history of the Constitution, only...

      How the Democrats Blew Trump’s Impeachment

      Throughout the day Wednesday, the impeachment of President Trump was compared variously by Republicans to the Salem Witch Trials, Pearl Harbor, and the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. As of 4 p.m., 9/11 remained untouched. But the day is still young—the House will vote on its articles a little after 7 p.m., bringing an end to the first stage of a...

      The Truth Is, Donald Trump Wants No Part of This

      A recurring theory is that President Donald Trump wants to be impeached, or that he is at least eager for the political brawl it represents. The New York Times’ Ross Douthat mused in September that Trump “might kind of want to be impeached” because, among other reasons, “the circus is the part of politics that he fundamentally enjoys.”...

      America’s Toady

      Every twelve months, Time magazine awards its Person of the Year title to a person or group of people who had the greatest impact on world events for that year. In 2001, the objective choice would have been Osama bin Laden, who orchestrated an act of mass murder that set American history down a much darker path. But Time’s editors decided...

      How the GOP Bamboozled The New York Times’ Politics Desk

      When it comes to impeachment, no one with a brain is disputing the facts of the case: Donald Trump pressured Ukraine’s Volodymyr Zelenskiy to investigate Joe Biden, using the president’s power over American foreign policy to target a political rival and influence the 2020 election. To suggest otherwise is to either knowingly obfuscate...

      Glenn Beck, the Nutty Professor

      Today, Glenn Beck looks almost nothing like the clean-shaven pundit who became famous delivering tearful Fox News monologues and emceeing Tea Party rallies. He has traded his signature dress shirts for scholarly sweater vests, horn-rimmed glasses, and a sage Vandyke beard. He also has a new role to match: as an anti-impeachment conspiracist who,...

      Meet Trumpworld’s Next Top Ukrainian Grifter

      Ever since Rudy Giuliani decided to torch his legacy, by gallivanting across Europe in search of potential “dirt” on former Vice President Joe Biden, the repercussions have been as swift as they’ve been mind-boggling. Through the former New York City mayor’s enabling, Donald Trump has become the first president in American history to...

The announcement brought the House one step closer to impeaching a president for only the third time in the nation’s history. “Our president holds the ultimate public trust,” Jerry Nadler, the...
