Published

Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren suggested on Sunday that President Donald Trump could be in jail by the 2020 election.

Warren made the statement while speaking to supporters in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

“Here’s what bothers me, by the time we get to 2020, Donald Trump may not even be president,” Warren said, according to NBC’s Vaughn Hillyard. “In fact, he may not even be a free person. But here’s how I see it – Donald Trump is not the only problem we’ve got.”

“This is the first full day of my campaign! Woo hoo!” the Massachusetts senator exclaimed. “Came straight to Iowa… you don’t come to Iowa & describe a problem and say, ‘We sure better fix that.’”

"The fact that Dan Coats went into a meeting and said 'Sue, you've got to resign' and that she did, truncating a career that clearly hadn't reached its zenith."

In recent weeks, Republican state party committees have been moving to cancel presidential primaries to prevent Never-Trump conservatives, like former Reps. Joe Walsh (R-IL) and Mark Sanford (R-SC) and former Gov. Bill Weld (R-MA), from challenging the president from the right.

Nancy Pelosi faces serious challenges — but she’s failed miserably in two key ways

Published

As I wrote earlier this week, with its muddled messaging on impeachment, the House Democratic leadership may have figured out a way of both demoralizing the Democratic base and firing up Trump's supporters. It's a mess.

But fairness requires us to acknowledge an important fact: Speaker Nancy Pelosi doesn't have the votes to launch an official impeachment process. And it's not close. At present, The Washington Post's tally finds 137 members of the House in favor of launching an impeachment inquiry, with 92 opposed and 6 others not taking a position. Leadership can twist arms on a close vote, but when you're close to 100 votes shy of a majority, it's impossible to whip a measure across the finish line--especially one of such consequence.
