One More Day…Waiting for Mueller

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/democrats-could-subpoena-mueller-report-redactions-as-soon-as-friday/2019/04/16/c879f7ea-606c-11e9-bfad-36a7eb36cb60_story.html?utm_term=.f8787a8e04d9

My take: Today is just thumb-sucking pre-game — this is one instance where how the media frames a story matters most of all. If Mueller has evidence that suggests Barr was spinning beyond the pale, nothing will trump that.

Buttigieg: Trump Is Like a “Chinese Finger Trap”

My take: Mayor Pete’s words to large Iowa rally are key to Democratic chances of unseating the incumbent.

“We’ve got to acknowledge — without giving an inch on the racism or xenophobia that played a role in that campaign — we’ve got to also pay attention to the things that make people susceptible to that message and make sure we’re addressing them.”

Democrats Debating Fox

My take: Sanders FNC town hall draws big ratings, while other candidates consider going on Fox and Trump complains; some smart Democratic strategists wonder if it is possible to reach Trump voters without validating Fox.
