So hours after a leak from John Bolton's book shows, as if more evidence was needed, that Trump was out to shake down Ukraine and all of the president's men knew it, the president's legal team of Dewey, Cheatham & Howe will return to the well of the Senate today, after honoring the Lord's day in the wake of that grueling two-hour presentation Saturday.
