I did not advise. I was simply interviewed. I stand by what I said.

I admire and like Brett Stephens but how can Whitaker be impeached if he hasn’t committed treason, bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors?

Dems must run from the center. Most Americans wisely reject left-wing extremists who falsely call themselves progressives while supporting repressive measures. Case in point: support for the bigot .

Hard left “progressives” lost close elections — senate, house, and governor—they might have won had the run from the center. Centrist liberals — like Jackie Rosen— won close elections. Lesson hopefully learned.

Any child born to undocumented immigrants who remains in the country is a constitutional citizen. Only question is whether a child born to a tourist who is then removed and never returns is subject to the jurisdiction of the US.

The both sides argument is always proper. Blaming only one side— the “other” side— is too easy. The shoe on the other foot test requires that you condemn your side’s bigots along with their side’s.

Shootings at places of worship, targeting of lawmakers playing baseball, & mailing pipe bombs all are dangerous symptoms of a deep underlying sickness in our system. But the root causes include a growing intolerance on both sides of the political spectrum

POTUS blames it on lack of armed guards. Leftist blame it on POTUS. The truth is this kind of Jew hatred and violence have been with us forever. All sides must condemn it.

The impulse to seek partisan advantage from a tragedy like the Tree of Life shooting seems as irresistible as it is irresponsible.

As a strong opponent of BDS, I support the right to advocate BDS. I agree with the Israel Supreme Court decision allowing a BDS proponent to study in Israel.

Imagine how different ‘s review would have been if H Clinton had been elected, if the Repubs were trying to impeach her, and if I made the same arguments against impeaching her that I make against impeaching Trump.

I'll continue to press a single standard of Justice and due process for everyone, as I did for the Clintons and as I do for the numerous people/causes I represent pro bono. I'll not be deterred by the cynical mocking of those who do nothing for anyone.

. always responds to substantive criticism with the same old ad hominems. Respond to The NY Times report that you may have turned the tide for Kavanaugh

Will the ACLU now have to recuse from close SCOTUS cases in light of its TV campaign against a sitting justice? Will any litigant want them on brief?

Kavanaugh owes an enormous debt to , who may have turned the tide in his favor by diluting Ford’s compelling accusation with an implausible story.

For me this is all about fairness, process, due process and what precedent this establishes for the future. The next time there's a democratic president and he/she nominates a liberal to the court, we're going to see this same kind of thing.

Unless these profs pass the shoe on the other foot test, their petition should be discounted. That’s why I refused to sign even though K would not have been my choice.

How many profs would sign if the nominee were a left female who was similarly accused and similarly responded? How many complained about Ginsburg’s injudicious statements?
