Democrats are being squeezed in a vise of expectations about how to confront, mitigate or if at all possible end the reign (I use the word intentionally) of Donald Trump. I’ve noticed a pattern accelerating in recent days by which the latest outrage from the President – whether it’s a new bad act, suspicious DOJ decision, rape accusation or racist outburst – leads Democrats not to vituperation against the President but a new round of increasingly febrile agitation and attacks against the congressional leaders of their own party.
We’ve all been over the arguments about impeachment versus on-going investigations. We’ve been through the minutiae of on-going subpoena litigation. Is it going fast enough? Is this just the inevitable slowness of the courts? Should Democratic leaders be more outspoken and direct?
