“We are not going to rule it out or in,” Nadler tells TIME.  “If our duty is to do it, we will do it.  If it’s not, we won’t.  Impeachment is not a punishment.  It is not a political act to say we think it’s a good idea to get rid of the President.  Impeachment is a defense of the Constitution, a defense of liberty.  It’s a very blunt sword that should only be drawn if absolutely necessary.  But it may be.”
  —  Representative Jerry Nadler
From an article written by: Molly Ball (with reporting by: Alana Abramson, Brian Bennett and Philip Elliott)
The article is titled: “The Path To Impeachment

Mueller acknowledges his impatience.  In his address at William & Mary, he recalled that during his days at Justice he’d often cut off attorneys by saying, “What is the issue?”  One evening, he said, his wife started telling him about a hard day.  He interjected with the same curt question.  She did not appreciate it.  “I am your wife,” he recalled her saying.  “I am not one of your attorneys.  Do not ever ask me, ‘What is the issue?’  You will sit there and you will listen until I am finished.
“That night, I did learn the importance of listening to those around you — truly listening — before making judgment, before taking action,” he continued.  “I also learned to use that question sparingly, and never, ever with my wife.”

The continuing efforts by the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. intelligence community are a useful reminder to Trump, Putin and the rest of the world.  Whatever the fallout from the Helsinki summit, no one man ultimately controls the enforcement of America’s laws or the defense of its national security.  And nothing Trump says or does will change that.
