    Out on the weekend, where they're sharpening the knives for January 20, 2017




    And check out the example cited in the piece.

    Republicans operatives on the Hill, for instance, are already planning to block Clinton's agenda by strategically targeting individual Democratic senators who will be up for reelection in 2018.

Voting with Clinton would jeopardize his reelection chances, and voting against her would rob her of a Democratic Senate vote she couldn't afford to lose without the 60 votes needed to filibuster.

    The Gangs of Washington are drawing their knives


    Deaths are often called untimely. But Janet Reno’s this week was anything but. She was the attorney general who refused to appoint a special prosecutor to look into the Clinton administration’s fundraising — White House solicitations that metastasized into a scandal that few can remember and none can explain.
