1. So far trump did it to try to stop the investigation.

Especially in light of the fact that his business records are being subpoenaed

3. It's 9/10 saying it looks really bad in CNN and MSNBC they have only a few people

 

Like Ken Cuchinelli and other rabid GOPers claiming it's no big deal or that this was just something that organically happened and that other people talked Trump into it. Of course that doesn't fit with these letters all being dated today. Lots of blank looks on these GOPers faces. Conway claiming it's all Dem partisanship and the Russia thing is a nothing burger.

Whenever we're going down the rabbit hole, Conway appears for the big spin.

Alice in Wonderland time.

13. I don't think that there are many

Republicans who want to go on tv right now so they probably didn't have much of a choice and had to release Conway from the basement.

4. Check out the Live-Updates here, at the Guardian...

their coverage includes most all of the breaking cable tidbits, as they happen, that have been pouring in all evening.

9. Very serious. MSNBC stopped showing commercials for several hours...

...which was startling when I finally noticed.

General consensus: Trump lied and everybody knows it's about Russia. If he thought Dems would be happy about this action, he was wrong.

Dems are pissed off because they know it was about a cover-up. MSNBC's conservative commentators are in sackcloth and ashes because they know how bad this is for the country. General agreement that while Trump is displaying the erratic desperation of Nixon, the basis of Trump's actions is far far worse.

11. They certainly appear to be going along. It's going to be hard to find a quorum of honest GOPpers...

... Kind of like looking for The Last of the Just.

Maybe they are all assholes and irredeemable, but I am still holding out some hope. Senator Graham certainly had all the right kind of gravitas at the opening of his hearing as he laid out the perils that face us in this moment. Cruz is slime, Grassley is clueless, but Graham seemed to genuinely understand where the US and Russia now stand.

On MSNBC, however, there is a handful of conservative commenters who I enjoy hearing from because they are intelligent, experienced, honest, and they have a good feel for how our constitutional government is supposed to work. Nicole Wallace, Steve Schmidt, Michael Steele, and so on. People like them (tho not all of them were in evidence today) were the ones in shock and a kind of mourning and making no excuses whatsoever for Trump.

See you tomorrow, Bains.
