If You Like Your Private Insurance…

Maybe Elizabeth Warren is a little too refreshing. Her plan to take away your current coverage might have been a bridge too far. Rich Lowry says even some Democrat primary voters don’t want to give up private insurance.”

Why Not Let The Voters Decide?

The voters will decide in less than a year if Trump deserves to stick around the White House. So why the Democratic rush to impeach him now?  

Well, they’ve been working on it since Trump was inaugurated. To quote the Whistleblower’s lawyer, Mark Zaid, from 2017, “The coup has begun” and “impeachment will follow ultimately.” Really.

Holman Jenkins in the WSJ (paywall protected) calls Trump a “gadfly president.” “But his actions have been extraordinarily consistent with his promises.”

Jenkins speculates Trump might have had enough by now and could be ready to wrap it up. But his opponents are so intent on “destroying him that he needs to hang on to the immunities and powers of the presidency simply to defend himself and the legitimacy of his 2016 victory.”

Not Just First Woman of Color Anymore

Before she was the first woman of color at Harvard Law School, Elizabeth Warren was a school teacher. But then she got pregnant and the principal “showed her the door.”  At least that’s how she tells it. But that’s not what happened. She quit. Her contract was extended that spring but Elizabeth decided to go another way. And the board accepted her resignation with regret.

Much More Than First Woman of Color

She went back to school, earned a law degree, became a bankruptcy expert, helped found the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and went on to regulate big banks.

Covering Hillary’s Russian Assets

Hillary still thinks the Russians beat her.

And maybe she’s right. In a podcast with former Obama advisor David Plouffe Hillary accused Tulsi Gabbard of being a Russian asset. So Tulsi hammered back that Hillary is the “rot that sickens the Democrats.” Not bad for an 11th place Democrat primary challenger.

In the WSJ (it’s paywall protected) Holman Jenkins says the podcast is becoming “famous for all the wrong reasons.” And “Democrats would help themselves by shutting her up.”

The title? Hillary Is a Russian Asset.

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.
