CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: The substance is a very serious issue. And I think Democrats will regret not having taken seriously the president's overreach on domestic issues which I think are unprecedented.

John Lewis Enraged On House Floor: "Republicans Have Never Supported This President"

GOP Rep. Mo Brooks: If We Couldn't Convict Clinton, There's No Way We Can Impeach Obama

REP. MO BROOKS (R-AL): But we're busy in Washington. Maybe Congressman Clyburn didn't see it, but the president said that impeachment is off the table.

REP. DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ (D-FL): We shouldn't be surprised because in the do-nothingist of do-nothing Congresses on a day when I leave this interview I'm going to go to the House floor and actually debate why we shouldn't be voting for the first time in American history to sue the president of the United States for doing his job. And doing his job actually less often and at a rate that is lower than any president since Grover Cleveland because the Republicans re ...

Cory Booker: Rand's Right, Drug Laws Not Inherently Racist But Have A Racial Outcome

ARI MELBER, MSNBC: Senator Paul, in your view, is the enforcement of the war on drugs racist? SEN. RAND PAUL: Well, I think it has a racial outcome is a better way to put it. I think it's inadvertent. So, I don't think everybody is plotting to make it that way, but you can't escape the facts that 3 out of 4 people in prison are black or brown or have drug problems. And frankly, I think it has to do with several things. ...

I think that it's very clear that it's quite possible this lawsuit against ...
