Secret testimony aimed at keeping Trump in the dark, says Adam Schiff Bloomberg

The House doesn’t have to be ‘fair’ in its probe. But it should give Trump due process. John Yoo, WaPo. If there’s anybody who “cancel culture” ought to be nuking, it’s John Yoo. But having rehabilitated George Bush, liberal Democrats are now platforming his torturers. “Look forward instead of looking backward,” I suppose (though I’d speculate we have Obama’s failure to prosecute torturers to thank not only for “Bloody Gina” Haspel as ([x] woman) head of Trump’s CIA, but for today’s open alliance between the intelligence community and liberal Democrats. So never say there’s not a silver lining).
