Do you think Congress is the place where compromise goes to die? Where "deal" is a dirty word? It isn't always like this. Four case studies of successful negotiations and who made them happen, including Bernie Sanders working with the late John McCain. http://theartofthepoliticaldeal.com/

Mayors across the country are living the nightmare of climate change firsthand. Let’s listen to them when they call for urgent climate action at the national level.

No one loves Twitter more than me, but this is probably good advice from @ThirdWayKessler: Democrats, don't try to win the Twitter primary. Going viral could be lethal with real voters in real elections. https://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2019/04/24/democrats-need-real-world-moderates-not-twitter-leftists-column/3490248002/ … via @usatoday @usatodayopinion

“In the end, all of our liberties, and our democratic system of government, depend upon maintaining the rule of law by reliance on the independent judiciary, the separation of powers and limited government.”

By lawyers Donald Ayer, @stuartmgerson and @RosenzweigP, who worked for Republican presidents (and in one case, for Kenneth Starr on Whitewater as well): #MuellerReport underscores dangerous Trump disdain for rule of law https://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2019/04/24/mueller-report-donald-trump-disdain-lawyers-rule-law-column/3550891002/ … via @usatoday @usatodayopinion

Before Nielsen was forced out, she tried to focus the White House on one of her highest priorities as DHS secretary: preparing for new and different Russian forms of interference in 2020. Mulvaney told her not to bring it up in front of the president.

Quoted @tribelaw

I explained my agreement with this position in USA Today several days ago. It’ll be in the paper edition tomorrow morning April 24. Impeachment is indeed a process, not an outcome. And it’s a Constitution-mandated process the Mueller report has triggered https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2019/04/mueller-report-impeachment-referral/587509/ …

You can read @tribelaw's column now right here: I've warned that impeachment talk is dangerous, but the time has come https://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2019/04/21/mueller-report-impeachment-invitation-congress-should-accept-column/3529790002/ … via @usatoday @usatodayopinion

Quoted @JillDLawrence

Former first lady Rosalynn Carter started advocating to get kids immunized 20 years ago. She has an interesting perspective on how the battle has changed: Disinformation is the new barrier to #measles #vaccines, and it's deadly https://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2019/04/23/measles-vaccines-fight-deadly-disinformation-rosalynn-carter-column/3540950002/ … @usatoday @usatodayopinion

Actually, 30 years ago.

Quoted @tribelaw

I’ve been making the same point as @walterdellinger does here: Mueller’s report reveals a president who is AWOL as Commander in Chief. If he were a General, he’d be court martialed. As POTUS, he should face impeachment proceedings. https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2019/04/19/while-russians-attacked-trump-looked-other-way/ …

This is indeed a crucial point and some people have been making it for a long time. @kurtbardella wrote in February 2018 that Trump's Russia denialism was a dereliction of duty, a betrayal of his oath and grounds for impeachment. https://usat.ly/2o8u66A  via @usatoday

In America, we take for granted the net good of knowing how many people live here & almost never think about why. Read why. #Census2020 @SCOTUSCensus #NYCounts2020 #LanguageAccess #VotingRights #Latinx #hagasecontar
