Sondland might be able to plead ignorance and incompetence, but Trump cannot. Neither can Mike Pence, Mick Mulvaney, Rick Perry, Mike Pompeo, or Kurt Volker. These guys are not witless hotel magnates who flopped back-asswards into a position of power (well, most of them aren’t); these guys are expected to know and follow the law. And how about Rudy Giuliani? It seems increasingly likely that Giuliani will be disbarred and will probably end up in prison. Can you imagine the dirt he’ll spill in an effort to avoid that? Giuliani is like a rabid raccoon on a good day. Back that man into a corner and he will bite.

Whose Side Are You On, Mitch?

A man who refuses to work with his fellow Americans against hostile foreign interference has no business serving as a U.S. Senator. Maybe at some point McConnell ran for office with good intentions and a desire to represent the people of Kentucky, but those good intentions have paved a road to hell and McConnell is the king of that road.

Lindsey Graham is a Fool’s Fool

Graham himself called Trump a “race-baiting xenophobic bigot” just a few years ago, but that Graham no longer exists. It’s no surprise. Graham is a sad little chameleon of a man who attaches himself to more powerful men and rides along hoping to sop up some of the residual attention and glory.

Giuliani the Canary

I think Giuliani is the guy to watch as this mess goes down. The crazier he gets, the closer we all are to learning the truth. Giuliani is the canary in Trump’s coal mine. And he looks like he’s suffering from some noxious air.
