As Mueller Finds No Collusion, Did Press Overhype Russiagate? Glenn Greenwald vs. David Cay Johnston We don't know what's in the Mueller report. We only know the brief interpretation offered by Bill Barr. But that interpretation opens whole new cans of worms. The standard here should not be beyond a reasonable doubt. That's the criminal standard. The standard is the constitutional requirements, which are faithful execution of the office and high crimes and misdemeanors.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib: I Won't Apologize for My Comments About Trump -- I Still Want to Impeach Him A wall is dehumanizing. We have to be a nation of compassion and some sort of humanity when it comes to the treatment of other human beings.
