Non Compos Mentis: “We are trying to make it very clear that this country could be careening towards a constitutional crisis. … We have to ensure that the American people understand that the United States Senate, or at least the Democrats in the United States Senate, are going to stand and demand that a special prosecutor be named in order to ensure that all of the facts are out, on the table for the American people to see and understand as to what exactly was the reason that President Trump fired James Comey as he was conducting an investigation of Donald Trump himself.” —Sen.

Belly laugh of the week: “Donald Trump clearly has not taken this seriously, and [in] what should be a Paul Revere moment for our country, where people are talking about the Russians are coming — they’re not intending not only to attack this last election but intending to continue this behavior — what will our response be?” —Sen. Cory Booker
