Problem with NPVIC is that it would not eliminate Electoral College. State X could vote overwhelmingly for Candidate A, but Candidate B wins national popular vote, therefore State X's electoral votes go to Candidate B. State X voters happy?

Isn't it based on assumption that country will vote their own progressive preference for president from now on? What if Republican wins popular vote and California's 55 electoral votes go to him/her? You think there might be some rethinking of NPVIC in CA?

GOP theory/scenario/question on secret Papadopoulos transcripts: FBI got Australian tip about Papadopoulos. Sent undercover agent to investigate. Resulting recordings failed to confirm tip. So keep investigating anyway?

Long rumored, now (somewhat) confirmed: FBI secretly recorded George Papadopoulos. Transcripts exist. Still classified. Why? Papadopoulos case over. Mueller investigation over. GOP wants Trump to declassify...

From NPR: 'Nevada Poised To Become 15th State To Ditch Electoral College.' Would put NPVIC project at 195 electoral votes.

Why delay voting on Barr? Is he in contempt, or not? In 2012, GOP took months before committee voted Holder in contempt, then full House vote within days. Now, Dems rush committee vote on Barr, but full House won't pull trigger...

Looks like FBI secretly recorded George Papadopoulos. There are transcripts. Never mentioned in Mueller report. GOP wants released but can't say so because existence of transcripts is classified. That's where Trey Gowdy came in...

Some guy at the IRS writes a memo, and the Washington Post leads with it. First sign of dissent! Be great to know who wrote it...

No surprise: In public testimony, Mueller does not want to go beyond what is in the publicly-released parts of his report. House Democrats want drama. From WP: 'Mueller and House Democrats at impasse over how much of his testimony would be public.'

RT : At that point, in Summer 2017, it wouldn't matter a whole lot whether Cohen said the project fizzled out in Jan. 2016 or June 2016. He picked the earlier date, for whatever reason, and is now accusing everyone else of being complicit in his lie.

RT : Cohen acknowledges that he's the one who put January 2016, and not June 2016, as the end date for Trump Tower project in his testimony draft. Not Sekulow. And not Trump.

Here is 2008 John Bates decision on House Judiciary subpoena to WH counsel Harriet Miers. Haven't read it all, but crux is Miers must show up, claim privilege as she deems appropriate. Final arrangement was no questions about conversations with president.

Chairman Nadler focusing on 2007 Harriet Miers case. Does not mention that WH and Chairman Conyers--after two years--reached agreement for Miers to testify provided no questions about conversations with President Bush. Would Nadler agree to similar arrangement today?

This is Amash saying there *were* underlying crimes revealed by Mueller report for which Trump could be impeached. Most who accuse Trump of crimes point to Vol II of report, say he obstructed justice. But Amash is not addressing that here. What is he talking about?

Maybe they could do this with Mueller report. And this time -- find a conspiracy!

Not sure Chairman Nadler would be happy with arrangement Chairman Conyers agreed to in Miers-Rove case...

On McGahn: Look at Miers/Rove situation with Bush/Obama 07-09. White Houses resisted setting precedent of top aides testifying. Agreement was reached. Miers/Rove would talk, but topics tightly limited--plus no questions about conversations with president.
