Of course James Comey says we shouldn’t bother to put Trump in prison. Comey has the worst judgment of just about anyone you can find.

– Mitch McConnell could end this tomorrow by holding a swift impeachment trial. Mike Pence could still end this today by invoking the 25th Amendment. If Trump gets to finish his term, don’t even think about blaming the Democrats.
