All The President's Men Are Whiny Little Boys
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast / Photos GettyWe are a nation on downers, with a president on uppers and a Secretary of State that is, as the kids would say, tripping.

Secretary of State and 56-year-old adult man Mike Pompeo threw a full-fledged tantrum Friday when NPR's Mary Louise Kelly dared ask him tough questions about his role in the Ukraine scandal that led to President Trump's impeachment. Pompeo was emotionally reactive throughout the interview, and afterward, according to Kelly, the Secretary of State led her into another room, where he screamed and swore at her for several minutes, demanded she point out where Ukraine is on an unmarked map (she did) and then threatened that people would "find out about this." Even the most sycophantic Trumpian bootlicker would have a hard time defending this behavior, and yet, the reaction from other reporters who have interacted with Pompeo was: Yes, this all tracks for a very powerful Republican man. This is how he acts.  

In conservative circles, there's a consensus lamentation about the death of the "American man." In their imaginations, men in America used to be like John Wayne characters: tall, stoic cowboy-providers who kept a stiff upper lip as they fended off the emotional chaos of women and flamboyant, gun-twirling bad guys. Real men never cry. Real men don't lose their shit and scream at people.

GOP senators: Dems threw Bidens 'under the bus' in Trump impeachment trial
President Trump's allies say Democrats made a critical mistake by spending so much time on Joe and Hunter Biden in their Senate impeachment trial arguments, and they've given Trump's legal team no choice but give the father and son's dealings in Ukraine a starring role when they launch their defense starting Saturday.

GOP Rolls Out Every Last Excuse to Keep Witnesses Out
J Scott Applewhite/AP/ShutterstockAs he made the closing arguments for the House prosecution, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) finished not with an argument to convict the president but a plea for the Republican senators sitting in the chamber to vote for additional evidence, a critical and increasingly imperiled part of the Democratic strategy in the impeachment trial of Donald J. Trump. 

He appealed to their sense of duty and fairness—and had the GOP side of the room, if not rapt, at least paying attention. 

And then he got ahead of himself.

Law Professor: Trump Could Also Have Been Impeached for War Crimes, Assassinations & Corruption
Democratic lawmakers are continuing to lay out their case for removing the president from office in the final day of opening arguments by Democrats in the historic impeachment trial of President Trump. Republicans will begin their opening arguments on Saturday. The Senate trial comes a month after the House impeached Trump for withholding congressionally approved military aid to Ukraine as part of an effort to pressure the Ukrainian president to investigate Trump's political rival, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. On Thursday, House impeachment manager Jerrold Nadler made the case that a president can be impeached for noncriminal activity. During another part of Thursday's proceedings, House impeachment manager Congressmember Sylvia Garcia relied on polls by Fox News to make the case that President Trump decided to target Joe Biden after polls showed the former vice president could beat Trump in 2020. For more on the impeachment trial, we're joined by Marjorie Cohn, professor emerita at Thomas Jefferson School of Law and the former president of the National Lawyers Guild. Her most recent book is "Drones and Targeted Killing: Legal, Moral, and Geopolitical Issues."
