The Democrats portrayed their performance as vindication of their agenda.  And the Republicans did not get out the vote as much as they had hoped in spite of the high inflation, crime and a faltering economy they promised to fix. Now is the time for bipartisanship in the Senate and House.

Fentanyl began seeping into the illegal drug market a decade ago, chiefly supplied through the mail by China.

This was the third impeachment trial of a president and the third acquittal in American history and as the New York Times put it, “it ended the way it began: with Republicans and Democrats at odds.” The bitterness of the process was exemplified by the fact that Trump didn’t shake House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s hand when he entered to deliver his State of the Union speech, and Nancy Pelosi shredded his written speech into pieces.
