Every week I come across articles that I find interesting and that I think you all here at Political⚡Charge might enjoy as well. Here are this week’s recommendations.
If you like words and discussions about language, you’ll enjoy this piece by John McWhorter at The Atlantic as he does a deep dive into the word “emolument.”
In this day and age of hyper-partisanship, I’ve become fascinated by what can actually change people’s minds. Eleanor Gordon-Smith at MarketWatch uses a technique I hadn’t seen published elsewhere. (Hat tip to Rogan’s List for the recommendation.)
Benjamin Wittes at LawFare runs us through the fact pattern which obliterates any ability of Trump or the Republicans to mount a defense. He then reaches back into history to demonstrate how prescient Alexander Hamilton was about how impeachments would likely work.
