Impeach Stones

The Atlantic on the doomed attempt to impeach Rod Rosenstein: “Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has many reasons to be concerned about his job security, but the articles of impeachment filed against him late Wednesday are probably not one.” It’s true that, with everyone from Jeff Sessions to Paul Ryan downplaying the idea, the impeachment move will never come up for a vote. But that’s not really the point of the effort. It’s to sow additional doubts about the Mueller investigation as it looks more and more like it will find a lot.

+ Jim Jordan, one of the members who filed the articles of impeachment, just announced that he is running for the Speakership.

+ Meanwhile, according to the NYT, “the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, is scrutinizing tweets and negative statements from the president about Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the former F.B.I. director James B. Comey.” The notion that your tweets can and will be used against you would be bad news for just about anyone on Twitter. But it’s especially bad news for the Troll in Chief.

+ Quartz: Robert Mueller is investigating Trump’s Twitter. These 22 tweets might raise an eyebrow. (It will be a bad sign for Trump if the Mueller report is written entirely in all caps…)
