Mnuchin, whose grandfather co-founded the Hamptons Yacht Club & whose Dad was a "legend" at Goldman Sachs, is doing what he has always done.

Bc he had the most respectful press shop of the Trump years he got good press, but he has always been a trash, entitled, foreclosing jerk.
Mnuchin's riches to (moral) rags story...
Of course, Mnuchin's father is decent enough to be ashamed of Steven Mnuchin, a 100% trash person.…
Mnuchin going into banking for the perpetrators of the Yemeni genocide and intra-Saudi royal family torture and the like is so on brand for the "foreclosure king."…

My view is most Republican Senators are like their voters and their votes reflect their values. The more reasonable "beliefs" they share with press and Democrats behind the scenes are lies. Assuming off the record is more honest is pervasive, but not empirically based.
GOP coulda blocked Trump in 2016 but didn't bc they preferred him to Ted Cruz.

GOP coulda convicted twice but didn't bc he markets them to non-college voters more effectively than anyone else.

GOP coulda allowed some oversight on stuff their base woulda cared about, but nah.
Rob Portman is RETIRING and voted to acquit. Portman is surely a major source of off the record Trump critique.

It was all bull in order to maintain influence with plugged in DC nonpartisans like the traditional media and corporate politicos squeamish about fascism.

REMINDER AS YOU READ about "widely respected" attorney Abbe Lowell... many DC BigLaw lawyers are "widely respected" for... bogus reasons. It's a mutual back scratching culture.… (1/x)
As the Wall Street Journal summarized... Lowell is an equal opportunity fixer for both parties. He went MAGA fixer for Jared Kushner + if indications of as yet unproven allegations bear out, maintained as much ethics as one expects for a Kushner lawyer. /2…
Please keep Abbe Lowell in mind if and when a BigLaw partner is chosen by Biden as Attorney General. Any such pick (e.g., Trump law firm King & Spaulding's Sally Yates) will receive bipartisan hosannas. As did BILL BARR!!! (3/x)

Here's my hot take -- one I kinda believe, even as I suspect no one will agree.

COVID-19 ultimately didn't hurt, and may have helped, Trump & the GOP in the election.


1. Biden will end up winning by amount he was beating Trump in head to heads pre-pandemic. (1/x)
2. COVID-19 became THE STORY, crowding out...well, all of the other stories.

3. It *IS* a pandemic, & 1 that throughout October became increasingly terrible across the world. Blaming Trump for COVID-19 much less fair than blaming him for cutting taxes for rich, anti-ACA, etc 2/x
4. Trump got to make essentially unchallenged claim that economy all good pre-COVID-19. Why blame him for a pandemic also crushing Europe.

5. Biden spent shockingly little time describing the medhanics of Trump's HHS/CDC effing up pandemic response, just assumed people knew. 3/x

We had an alternative vision for how @SpeakerPelosi could have handled the past 2 years.

We emphasized connecting the dots between Trump the buffoon, the executive branch, and outcomes for real people.

Here's some of what we urged @revolvingdoorDC:…
Now it is up to a President Biden -- and forgive me, we DO know that is what's happening -- to view running the executive branch effectively as the main way to both deliver results and de-radicalize the country. (2/x)
The most important article for people to read today is… by @pareene

Biden GESTURED at this theory of the case, but with no detail. And pelosi's STEADFAST AVERSION to oversight made it an unnecessarily hard story to tell. (3/x)
