Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

"“The President’s double standard when it comes to transparency is appalling,” Senate Minority Leader Charles Grassley (D-N.Y.) said. “The rationale for releasing the Nunes memo, transparency, vanishes when it could show information that’s harmful to him. Millions of Americans are asking one simple question: what is he hiding?”

Did Sen. Charles Grassley switch parties and move to New York from Iowa?

This whole thing gets more outrageous every day. He apparently thinks he's an emperor of some sort. I get the feeling we'll be seeing the opening of ACT V very soon.

Good catch, Speedy. I'm sure it was Schumer, not Grassley.

But while we're on the subject, I wish Grassley would move to Timbuktu.

Trump blocked release of the Democrats' memo you say?

Relax, people...I got this:

Given that the Nunes memo was a dud, who could care about this pissing match, anyway? I don’t understand why the Democrats would even deign to play this stupid game.

Whatever happened to leading by example?

Given the dud Republican memo, I think the stench of Trump not releasing the Democratic memo is greater than what the memo itself could accomplish.

It's about countering a blatant, manipulative attempt to control the narrative of a criminal enterprise. You can't let that happen unhindered.

Is that kind of like deciding to protest at your own duel by refusing to carry a weapon?

You'll make your point, sure, but it will be from the grave.
