Senate impeachment trial hostages Sanders, Warren and Klobuchar face a dilemma. Closing arguments are tomorrow, but so are the Iowa Caucuses. And the final vote on whether to toss Trump is Wednesday.

More Caucus Chaos

And the Des Moines Register further complicated things by canceling the release of its “gold standard” poll Saturday night. Somebody left Pete Buttigieg out as a possible preferred candidate.

Meanwhile, back in Washington, the president delivers his State of the Union speech on Tuesday.

And, since the Senate voted 51-49 to block more impeachment trial witness testimony on Friday, Republicans now say they have the votes to acquit on Wednesday.

John Dean No Rosemary Woods

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler thought it would be a good idea to have John Dean testify about Watergate. And John Dean was happy to oblige. After all, he may be a convicted felon but he’s no chicken – or Rosemary Woods

But he did say that Russiagate was just like Watergate, only worse.

However, unfortunately for Chairman Nadler, the media spent most of the day covering a helicopter crash in New York City.

House Judiciary Committee One, Barr None

The House Judiciary Committee voted to hold Attorney General Barr in contempt of Congress. Chairman Jerry Nadler demands that Barr turn over a complete unreacted copy of the Mueller report on collusion with Russia. But Nadler knows Barr can’t do that because the report contains grand jury testimony. And that’s illegal. Barr has made a minimally redacted version available to certain members of Congress. But so far no Democrats have bothered to take a look.

Debatable Qualifications for President

Joe Biden says he’s “the most qualified person in the country to be president.” If he can claw his way past Sparticus, the non-hispanic Beto, the non-native American Cherokee from Massachusetts and others to debate the Stable Genius the 2020 campaign might be even more entertaining than the 2016 campaign. Come to think of it, it should be entertaining even if Joe doesn’t get past that bunch.

Obama Judges Trump Judges

Obama judges Chief Justice John Roberts

U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar ruled against President Trump on an immigration matter. So Trump called him an Obama judge. And that prompted Chief Justice John Roberts to publicly rebuke the President, explaining, “there are no Obama judges or Trump or Bush or Clinton judges.”

Obama Judges

Mark Thiessen thinks jumping into a political argument is a funny way for Justice Roberts to show he’s above politics.

You may have noticed Trump doesn’t claim to be above politics. So he counterpunched that judges are a threat to national security.
