Jason Chaffetz], in some ways, have [sic] some connections to what is going on in the Ukraine and perhaps in Russia itself and knows something about all of this. I don’t really know.

Friendly fire: “What is the Democratic agenda? What does the party have to offer besides disunity, obstruction, incoherence, obsession, and obliviousness? They haven’t rallied behind a plan to fix Obamacare or an alternative to the president’s tax proposal.

It’s hard to detect a consensus beyond that.” —Matthew Continetti
