Impeachment

Apparently, Rudy Giuliani just discovered video filters. Specifically, he found the Planet of the Apes Cornelius filter and added a stovepipe hat. Or maybe it’s Abraham Lincoln. I don’t know. The last thing I want to do is try to get into Rudy’s head. I imagine it’s a little like visiting a...

Trump’s lawyers argued that the Senate lacked jurisdiction to try the impeachment of a former president, and today that argument failed by a 56-44 vote.  The issue was resolved: the Senate has jurisdiction to try and convict Trump. A question: isn’t this now the “law of the case,” and, thus, a...
