Nuts. Washington Post:

President Trump called on China on Thursday to investigate former vice president Joe Biden and his son Hunter in relation to the younger Biden’s business dealings during the tenure of the former vice president.

Trump’s comments came as Democrats accelerated an impeachment inquiry that was sparked by a whistleblower’s complaint that Trump had pressed Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky for a similar investigation. Some said his latest comments had generated another potential article of impeachment.

Where is a modern-day Howard Baker? Arkansas Republicans are among the worst. The best you can expect is cowardice, such as Rep. French Hill dodging the subject. The worst are the likes of Rep. Rick Crawford and Lt. Gov. Tim Griffin defending Trump’s worst excesses.  Sen. Tom Cotton, who seems to only want to talk about Hunter Biden’s paternity case, isn’t far behind. Shame is not in their vocabulary or understanding. Nancy Pelosi has it right. She says Republicans are loyal to Trump, not the Constitution.
