(UPDATE) Well—I was right. I wanted to be wrong. Pelosi has—as I said was clear from Democrats' public statements—revised her impeachment plan to exclude everything but Ukraine. Democrats will ignore the 10 impeachable acts of obstruction Mueller proved beyond a reasonable doubt.


PS/ The reason for the shift is as I said in the thread below (inexplicably maligned at the time, though it was in keeping with all of the major media reporting): Pelosi thinks the Democrats can't complete a full impeachment—on *all* the facts—fast enough.

PS2/ By the way, this would appear to make it official—Presidents can obstruct justice with impunity because the public doesn't care enough for it to be otherwise.

So, with that in mind, here's the *new rule* in America:

"Presidents can only be guilty of the really sexy crimes"
