A tax on all Wall Street transactions will have a tiny impact on regular people making regular trades. But it will make it super difficult for high-frequency, software-based traders which add volatility and risk to our system. Other countries have these taxes and they work fine.

In an ideal world, the thought of impeaching Donald Trump would warrant at least three cheers, along with some somersaults and a marching band (my preference would be for a New Orleans Second Line led by Trombone Shorty). Yet in an ideal world Donald Trump would be nothing but a bad dream. Our world

Just remember this as you reflect on Roy Cohn, Robert Mueller, Don McGahn, Michael Cohen, Jeff Sessions, Matt Whittaker and now William Barr. "Which ones are not like the others?"

Too late for Trump to claim executive privilege -- the former White House Counsel Don McGahn was allowed to be interviewed by Mueller without the White House claiming his testimony fell under executive privilege. (BTW, Don McGahn was never supposed to serve the president PERSONALLY, but rather the PRESIDENTIAL OFFICE. In other words, McGahn was not serving as Trump's personal FIXER, which is what Trump was seeking. However, we now see that Trump's appointee, Attorney General William Barr has shown he is so willing to be Trump's "fixer", as Trump has openly sought: "Who will be my Roy Cohn"?). https://www.yahoo.com/now/trump-vows-bring-impeachment-fight-nations-top-court-122508414.html
