This Might Have Been Trump's Stupidest Press Conference of All Time

As the government shutdown approaches the two week mark, President Donald Trump attempted to regain the political momentum with a Rose Garden press conference on Friday. It was an absolute train wreck. It wasn’t his craziest one, or his worst one, but it might have been his dumbest.

The president kicked things off with 16 minutes of rambling, nonsensical economic self-congratulation,...

Impeachment. It’s the heavily hashtagged Congressional process (see: #Impeach45; #ImpeachTrumpNow; or, for followers of Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, #ImpeachTheMotherfucker) that many other Democrats are approaching with all the gung-ho patriotism of Alexander Hamilton making an exhaustive pros and cons list about the potential ramifications of requisitioning musket balls and...

Former 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton took to the pages of the Washington Post on Wednesday to lay out her thoughts on impeaching President Trump in light of the report by special counsel Robert Mueller released last week.

Clinton, in her characteristic fashion, lays out a moderate approach to the idea of impeachment, encouraging lawmakers to consider this a patriotic...

Congressional Democrats Relieved They Don't Have to Push Impeachment

Donald Trump is president. As the New Yorker’s Osita Nwanevu said last night, that alone should have been reason for Democrats to pursue impeachment right from the beginning. Nancy Pelosi has not agreed, warning Democrats not to give a political “gift” to the Republicans by talking impeachment once they took the House. With Robert Mueller’s decision not to recommend obstruction of justice...

They’re Not Even Going to Try Huh

The sole acceptable reason for Democrats not to try and impeach Trump is that Republicans in the Senate will never be persuaded to vote in favor, and it is thus doomed. This reason is vastly outweighed by other good reasons, such as that there is a lot of evidence he has done crimes, even beyond the quite clear evidence of obstruction in the Mueller report, and that there are many important...

Nancy Pelosi's Excuses for Avoiding Impeachment Are Getting Wilder by the Day

Another day, another wildly convoluted reason Nancy Pelosi has come up with to avoid talking about impeaching Donald Trump.

After a small revolt by pro-impeachment inquiry House Democrats earlier this week—which was followed by a closed-door, members-only caucus meeting yesterday after which Pelosi told reporters that Trump had engaged in a cover-up—Pelosi reportedly had another meeting with...

The White House response to the allegation from BuzzFeed News that Donald Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie to Congress has been, shall we say, less than convincing.

If you missed it, BuzzFeed News reported on Thursday night that, after the 2016 election, Trump ordered Cohen, his then-lawyer, to lie about the details of his involvement in a deal to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. (Cohen...

Trump Considers Declaring a National Emergency Over Border Wall

National Emergency Over Border Wall<em></em></a>

As talks between the Trump administration and Democratic congressional leaders over funding for a border wall continue to lead to nowhere, the president reportedly is considering taking the extreme step of declaring a national emergency.

Such a move, in theory, would permit the president to use military funding and resources for the project, which would essentially mandate the president to...

For weeks, Nancy Pelosi has been coming up with increasingly outrageous excuses for why the Democrats simply can’t open up an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. It’s political, but also not political; bad for the country, and also Democrats’ electoral prospects; Trump is a criminal who engaged in a cover-up, but nothing should be done about it.

One of the recurring themes in the many “will they or won’t they” impeachment intrigue stories about Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats is the idea that Pelosi is protecting members in swing districts, particularly freshmen, from making a tough vote. The New York Times published a story on Sunday focusing on these Democrats, annoyingly termed by writer Sheryl Gay Stolberg as “majority...

Small cracks are starting to appear in what until now has been a fortified wall of GOP support for President Donald Trump on the impeachment question.

The first prominent Republican to break through that wall and call for Trump’s impeachment was House Freedom Caucus co-founder Rep. Justin Amash, who last weekend said in a series of tweets that Trump had “engaged in specific actions and a...

In an interview out Monday from the Washington Post, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she’s “not for impeachment” of Donald Trump. Why? “I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country. And he’s just not worth it.” This clapback is simply epic.

The Only Thing Worse Than Nancy Pelosi's Case Against Impeachment Is Her Supporters

Center for American Progress president Neera Tanden has had enough—of people criticizing Nancy Pelosi for her handling of the Donald Trump impeachment non-inquiry—talk of which flared up again after Trump said on Wednesday that he would be happy to take dirt from foreign governments about his 2020 rivals.

Donald Trump’s approval numbers are on the rise, to the point where, according to one analysis, he would have majority support in enough states to carry the Electoral College if the 2020 election were held today. This is happening despite the fact that Trump’s immigration policy continues to garner headlines for its cruel and inhumane treatment of migrants, despite the fact that Trump himself...

Now that a redacted version of the Mueller report is out, the biggest question is whether Democrats in the House will move to impeach Donald Trump. Although Special Counsel Robert Mueller didn’t recommend criminally charging the president with obstruction of justice or conspiracy, he did lay out some pretty convincing arguments as to why lawmakers should act.

What is there left to say about the Mueller Report? Depending on who you are, a LOT. But so far, plenty of it has also been incredibly bad. So this response from Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who is currently running for president, was a breath of fresh air:
