Democrats should not oppose Gorsuch
When he was nominated for a federal judgeship in 2006, Neil Gorsuch was confirmed by voice vote in the Senate and there was not a single objection to an obviously qualified nominee. Though no one is expecting as smooth a ride for Gorsuch as President Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court, his qualifications are just as undeniable.

GOP Congress should air it all out
In an environment where every day has felt like a month and almost every news cycle has something that the media consider a potentially administration-shaking disaster, we finally have something worthy of the perpetually screaming headlines — a national-security adviser getting fired under a haze of suspicion about his dealings with Russia.

The cover-up in search of a crime
It’s a Watergate-era cliche that the cover-up is always worse than the crime. In the Mike Flynn affair, we have the first recorded instance of a cover-up in the absence of a crime.

America, meet the nuclear football
By now a few million Americans have met “Rick,” the aide-de-camp who carries the nuclear “football” for President Trump, and Richard DeAgazio, a Mar-a-Lago club member who posted a selfie of the two on his Facebook page.

Claims about protesters are risky
Republican members of Congress are feeling a bit under siege right now. Their office phones won’t stop ringing, and their town hall meetings are mobbed by people angry about health care, the travel ban, various Donald Trump cabinet officials, and more.

There’s a reason trade deals are complicated

This technique was on display the other day when the president met with some sheriffs.

Comes now Timothy Geithner, treasury secretary from 2009 to 2013, to tell you that much of what you “know” about Dodd-Frank — Congress’ response to the 2008-09 financial crisis — is wrong. It’s a timely review because the Trump administration is promising to overhaul the law.
