As White House stonewalling continues, Democrats are starting to speak more openly about the constitutional option, but their leader isn’t budging.
Jeffrey Goldberg"Until recently, most members of the Democratic caucus have been willing to go along with their leadership’s position. (A few backbenchers have consistently called for impeachment.) But the past few days have brought signs that that’s no longer true."
If mothers and fathers speak openly about child-care obligations, their colleagues will adapt.
Jeffrey Goldberg"One woman told me she worked on a team of men, all of whom were fathers. Pregnant with her first child, she noted that none of the men ever talked about their children, and she assumed she shouldn’t either." An important piece from @ProfEmilyOster
Forget Barr and Mueller. The former White House counsel would be a more interesting witness—and create something more closely resembling an impeachment hearing.
Jeffrey Goldberg"More than that of any other witness, McGahn’s testimony would deal directly with whether and how Trump obstructed justice—and it would come closest to showing what an impeachment proceeding against Trump would look like."
