Reprinted with permission from Shareblue.com. Trump called it “fake news” when The New York Times reported he was in talks to hire Emmet Flood, a lawyer who represented President Bill Clinton during his impeachment proceedings.

Guilt Feelings: Why Trump (Like Clinton) Will Require A Subpoena

“Donald Trump insists he is willing — eager, even — to sit down for a tough interview with Robert Mueller. His lawyers have other ideas, and hope to strictly limit any questioning of the president under oath or prevent it from happening altogether.

Coach Denny, Grandma Nancy, And America’s Family Values

Unlike Newt Gingrich, whose own serial adulteries became a national joke, Dennis Hastert was evidently never suspected of any such “misconduct,” as the indictment described it. Republicans keep telling everyone how shocked they are, but they really shouldn’t be. Here’s why.
