No amount of charity can negate the damage the Kochs have done to Americans’ trust in expert opinion, and to the environment

I’ve been saying from the outset that this looks like Bribery to me. And Bribery, like Treason, is explicitly defined as a “high Crime and Misdemeanor” and thus as an impeachable offense.

“Chambers learned that the two former New York Police Department officers who had raped her while on duty would serve no jail time.”
