Important cause it tells us what DOJ is likely done with.


NRA Magazine features: "Target Practice" next to a photo of Nancy Pelosi with Gabby Giffords.

The NRA sez go for it.

Someone sent me this image of the latest copy of NRA's magazine, featuring a story with the words "Target Practice" next to a photo of Nancy Pelosi with Gabby Giffords. Maybe don't do this @NRA.


The Rude Pundit: "Call me old-fashioned, but..."

Call me old-fashioned, but when a judge says a member of the president's cabinet covered up for a serial child rapist, I think that ought to be a huge scandal. But I guess that's not the world we live in now.

MAGA Ouch.

That Awkward Moment

Democrats to subpoena Mueller's report if Barr doesn't make it public

Blumenthal says he'll subpoena Mueller report if attorney general won't release it on his own

Democratic senator has made it clear that if President Donald Trump's attorney general tries to suppress special counsel Robert Mueller's report, he will issue a subpoena for it.

In the process, that senator confirmed that the report's release is imminent.

"There’ll be subpoenas from Congress, including, I hope, from the Senate Judiciary Committee," Blumenthal told CNN's "New Day" regarding the possible imminent release of the Mueller report. He also warned Attorney General William Barr that refusing to release the full report would create the "public perception of a cover-up" and added that if Barr "believes — I think he does — that a sitting president cannot be indicted — I disagree with him — and he brings no charges that Mueller says can’t be brought, and if there are no public disclosures, the public rightly will feel that there is a cover-up." Blumenthal did acknowledge that, while the Senate and House can subpoena anyone they want, the Justice Department could very well resist it.

This echoes a sentiment that Blumenthal expressed on the matter last month, when he told CNN that "if necessary, our committee will subpoena the report. If necessary, we’ll get Mueller to testify. The American people need the information here."


Adam Schiff Writes an Open Letter to His GOP Colleagues and It Is Lit.

Schiff minces no words here.

Washington Post

“This is a moment of great peril for our democracy. Our country is deeply divided. Our national discourse has become coarse, indeed, poisonous. Disunity and dysfunction have paralyzed Congress.

And while our attention is focused inward, the world spins on, new authoritarian regimes are born, old rivals spread their pernicious ideologies, and the space for freedom-loving peoples begins violently to contract. At last week’s Munich Security Conference, the prevailing sentiment among our closest allies is that the United States can no longer be counted on to champion liberal democracy or defend the world order we built.

For the past two years, we have examined Russia’s interference in the 2016 election and its attempts to influence the 2018 midterms. Moscow’s effort to undermine our democracy was spectacularly successful in inflaming racial, ethnic and other divides in our society and turning American against American.

But the attack on our democracy had its limits. Russian President Vladimir Putin could not lead us to distrust our own intelligence agencies or the FBI. He could not cause us to view our own free press as an enemy of the people. He could not undermine the independence of the Justice Department or denigrate judges. Only we could do that to ourselves. Although many forces have contributed to the decline in public confidence in our institutions, one force stands out as an accelerant, like gas on a fire. And try as some of us might to avoid invoking the arsonist’s name, we must say it.

I speak, of course, of our president, Donald Trump.”
