Former NJ Governor Chris Christie is under consideration to become Attorney General, replacing Sessions, according to a source familiar. Matt Whitaker is currently acting Attorney General.

Better get down to the DOJ cafeteria early or else you'll go hungry. This boy can

pack it away.

For too many reasons to count (e.g., his political ambitions, his past statements about the Mueller probe,

his distaste for Jared, his law-and-order bona fides)

Christie would be a favorable AG pick for Democrats

—for that reason I think he has zero chance.

 

On the other hand, there are enough indications that Pam Bondi is conventionally corrupt,

and is or can be made to be Trump's creature, that I think

—given that Trump probably thinks the Senate would never oppose a female nominee

—she has a decent shot of being his pick for AG.

Do you think all the African-American Congressional representatives are lunatics?

Nippy,

This one must have slipped your mind.

The voting situation in Georgia is shaping up to be a deeply troubling challenge to American democracy. There are so many questions that warrant investigation. If this was a foreign country there would be a call for international inspectors.

The 2000 presidential election was decided by 537 votes in Florida when the US Supreme Court effectively stopped the counting of ballots.

Today, Florida Governor Rick Scott is effectively trying to stop the counting of ballots in Democratic counties where Republicans are losing.

Overall, though, we've gone from what looked like what looked like about D +33 House and R +3-4 Senate late Tuesday night to what now could wind up more like D +36-40 House and R +1-2 Senate. Probably enough to merit a reassessment.

Some things since Tuesday night that reshape midterm thinking:

-4 more House R->D seats called

-Florida Gov & Senate move to recounts

-Tester wins

-GA Gov closer to run-off

-AZ Senate still in air, keeping Dem hopes of another pick-up alive

-Dems closing in on 400 state leg flips

Pelosi says it’s a wave: “23 votes was a wave, when you talk about the gerrymandered climate, territory that we had to contend in; very gerrymandered and from the start people said, oh, that’s interesting, but you can’t win because of gerrymandering”

The United States Senate is the upper chamber of a co-equal branch of government that was created and empowered by Article 1 of the US Constitution. Trump referred to it yesterday as a weapon, controlled by him, to be used to investigate his political opponents. Dangerous.

Well, coverage of the migrant caravan stopped on November 7.

Just like coverage of Weiner's laptop stopped November 9, 2016.

Just like coverage of Ebola stopped November 5, 2014.

The media's top story is whatever Republicans say it is. Every. Single. Time.

Just for one election, I'd like the media to treat Democrats the way they treat Republicans. Put their talking points at the top of the news hour.

Make them the majority of talk show panels. Put the entire responsibility of unifying Washington on their opponents.

At an evangelical forum in Iowa in 2014, Matt Whitaker said he would only support judges who have a ‘Biblical’ view of justice, specifically New Testament, which would bar Jewish, Hindu, Muslims or atheists from the bench.

This is blatantly unconstitutional--against the First Amendment.

United States of of America is not a theocracy: it's a representative democracy.

I'm not surprised that that he is such a bad appointment considering the track record of the person making the appointment.
