How House Democrats can reverse the playbook on Trump


Salon’s Amanda Marcotte and executive editor Andrew O’Hehir consider an all-in impeachment strategy for House Democrats that considers every Trump scandal. The comprehensive look could result in articles of impeachment that are books long.

“Call everyone who has touched Trump’s life in as a witness and make this thing last months and months and months,” Marcotte said. This is a way to “reverse the playbook” on Trump and make it impossible for him to defend. Could it work?
