Rachel Maddow pointed out that there is a precedent for a president being impeached for talking to Justice Department officials about an investigation that involves them.
Rachel Maddow said:
Whether or not the senior justice department official should have been having all of these conversations with the president about an ongoing investigation that implicated the president’s senior staff and would soon implicate the president himself, whether or not that justice department official should have been feeding information about the investigation to the president. When the president had those conversations, when he engaged that senior justice department official to find out what was going on and to try to alter the course of what was happening with that investigation, when that happened, regardless of what you think about the justice department official involved in those discussions, when the president engaged in those discussions, the president broke the law.

With Democrats set to take back power in the House, Fox News has returned to one of its favorite tricks, blaming Democrats for Republican failures.
Charles Payne said on Fox News, “I think it’s the tone. You know, the very next day the market was up. But since then, the tone of Democrats, who have declared war on President Trump, I think have been a real negative wave for the market. Particularly, I think Americans want to see legislation, not more investigations. You know, I don’t think they want to see Maxine Waters spending a whole lot of time digging up dirt on Deutsche Bank when people are trying to, you know, live their lives.”
