No mulligans. Republicans haven’t been so gleefully steadfast in their stand against moral turpitude since Anthony Weiner, maybe since Bill Clinton. Eric Schneiderman resigns from being New York Attorney General to spend more time with... his mirror and his conscience.
Republican schadenfreude might be short-lived as the acting AG is both female and Democratic, and no one is throwing out any upcoming cases or evidence. David Waldman and Armando review what has happened so far and speculate about the future in the case.
But that isn’t all that’s grinding Armando’s gears today. Hack Hugh Hewitt engages in payola with Scott Pruitt, and MSNBC does nothing. Paul Krugman feels guilty about how he doesn’t feel victimized. Everyone agrees that Trump would be an idiot to pull out of the Iran Nuclear Deal, so he really has no choice. Now what will we do?
Russian hackers will sow fear and confusion wherever they find fertile ground.
There are more good guys with guns in schools, unfortunately the good guys’ guns have bad bullets.
Nunes gonna Nunes, and David is going to discuss congressional contempt procedural intricacies.
Kansas City surprises millions with its hospitality.
