'How Trump’s incitements to violence against Representative Adam Schiff and others, in the wake of the whistle-blower report about his call with the Ukrainian President, may urge other insiders to come forward. Were the collective nerve endings of the electorate not so frayed and numbed by now, we might be even more alive to the ugliness of this message from the White House. One of the consequences of the Trump Presidency is the way that it constantly diminishes our expectations of anything other than hideous rhetoric and action. But there are those who are intensely aware of the potential consequences of such a threat. Sources close to Schiff told The New Yorker on Monday that Democrats in Congress are deeply worried about the President using Twitter to incite violence and to direct it at specific members.'

and don't miss James Hohmann of the Washington Post, who yesterday described Trump's defense when his hand was caught in cookie jar in broad daylight:

"The president is running the smashmouth playbook he learned from Roy Cohn, his mentor and Joe McCarthy's hatchet man. It's worked repeatedly for Trump, from fighting the Justice Department's investigation of racial discrimination at his family's rental properties in the 1970s to overcoming Bob Mueller's investigation the past two years. Among other things, this strategy involves denying everything and counterattacking critics by accusing them of whatever you've been accused of.

'The don't-give-an-inch mentality is what prompts someone like White House policy adviser Stephen Miller to declareon "Fox News Sunday" that "the president of the United States is thewhistleblower, and this individual is a saboteur trying to undermine a democratically elected government." And it is why Trump allows Rudy Giuliani, his ferocious personal attorney, to keep defending him on television despite the messes he seems to make each time he goes on the air."

'In other words, he did it, it was the right thing to do, who cares, so what, and anyone who says he did it is a liar and a traitor and should resign or be shot."
