One to Commit the Crime, One to Cover it Up

Back before the election, someone I consider a dear personal friend shocked me when they said they were voting for Donald Trump. When asked why, they said he was clearly nuts, but if he did anything too nuts, obviously Congress would just impeach him. Obviously, because that's exactly how Congress -- this Congress, no less -- works. Anyway, the corruption had already begun before President Trump was even sworn in, and it hasn't abated in the month (gasp) since he took office. And why is that, you may ask? Because Congress -- you know, the they-can-just-impeach-him guys, have made sure to cover his tracks and salt the trail behind him. Here's Jonathan Chait with more, and if you're not irked by this, boy, you should be.
