4. And Mitch McConnell is now "missing in action."

If Trump declares his "national emergency" I think McConnell will go down in history as America's Von Papen--the man who thought he could control Hitler by allowing him to assume executive power. The German right justified naming Hitler chancellor by saying "WE are hiring HIM." McConnell no doubt had some similar thought about Trump.

And all because McConnell didn't want Hillary appointing Supreme Court justices, which is the least toxic excuse I can think of for his cowardly surrender of democratic principles and the responsibilities of his oath and office.

Thank goodness we at least have the House. Whether this will be enough, only time will tell.
