BREAKING NEWS: House Judiciary Chair Says "No Question" That Trump Colluded With Russians, That Russia Had Leverage Over Trump During the 2016 Campaign, and That Trump Has Committed Crimes While in Office; Says Impeachment "Is a Decision for Down the Road"  https://www.cnbc.com/2019/05/15/jerry-nadler-probably-not-headed-for-impeachment-but-trump-makes-it-difficult-to-avoid.html 

1/ Some will think the first 3 parts of the headline in my preceding tweet are Nadler being "political," while his words on impeachment are him being "sensible." It's the reverse: he's merely stating facts about Trump's conduct, and slow-walking impeachment for political reasons.

2/ The worst part is how this interview will be covered (or already is being covered—just look at the headline CNBC gave it). Clearly US media takes *facts* about Trump's collusion and treats them as *rhetoric*, and takes a *political calculation* on impeachment as *earnestness*.
