Outsiders vs. Insiders: Irascible impeachment talk is Democrats’ most asinine rant to date

In the end Donald Trump’s presidency will likely rise or fall with the conclusions of the special counsel on the Russian-meddling investigation. If the case against him is truly as flimsy as it appears on the surface, Democrats are the ones who will suffer the most from pursuing it.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Distracted conservatives equate to disastrous Democrat gains in 2018

More than anything conservatives need to take a step back from all of this fury, breathe into a paper bag if necessary and try to remember, as the Bible teaches, “This too shall pass.” President Trump will regularly stir up the liberal hornets’ nest, but the people aren’t fooled.

The appointment of a special counsel comes with big risks for Trump and takes the investigation out of his chain of command.

But most people will give Mueller a chance. And he deserves that.
