On impeachment and Syria, Congress and the news media at last care more about what the president does than what he says. S uddenly Trump’s best-defense-is-a-good-offense , is no longer sufficient to fend off the damage. In recent days, he has failed to stall the impeachment express with attack tweets. These days, the press is more interested in charting the course of impeachment and the accumulating evidence than playing “go fetch” with Trump’s tweets. Trump’s old techniques are failing—and not just due to the volume of the bad news. What’s unique about this phase of his presidency is that he’s being attacked with so much damning information from so many directions and so many different power centers that he can’t keep up. Not even a street fighter with Bruce Lee’s skills could repulse this sort of pile-on."
