With impeachment of Donald Trump now all but inevitable, his highest ranking defenders, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Attorney General William Barr, have gone to unprecedented lengths to ensure he gets away with his crimes. This week, Stu and AJ unpack how both these men are unabashedly assaulting the responsibilities of the institutions they lead and turning them into arms of Trump’s re-election campaign.

PLUS! Call your representative and senators at 202.224.3121 to urge them to support impeachment and removal of President Trump. Then visit impeach.org and sign up to attend a “Nobody is Above the Law” event near you on the eve of the House’s impeachment vote.

Moment of Uplift: Greta Thunberg is the youngest TIME Person of the Year ever! Even as the Trumps debase themselves to attack the 16 year-old, she remains classy, uncompromising in her vital goals, and a true inspiration to all of us.

This is your country for the week of December 16, 2019!
