‘Vitri­olic abyss’

The Observer - - Comment & Analysis - Car­rie Sh­effield

“Amer­ica is now at a junc­ture: will a di­vided Congress col­lapse into a vitri­olic abyss of pres­i­den­tial House im­peach­ment (and sub­se­quent Se­nate ac­quit­tal), end­less House Rus­sia con­spir­acy the­o­ries, sub­poe­nas and base­less in­ves­ti­ga­tions? Or will Democrats and Repub­li­cans work to­gether to fight the opi­oid cri­sis, rein in our deficit and re­form our ed­u­ca­tion and crim­i­nal jus­tice sys­tems? If House Democrats choose the for­mer, they will weary the Amer­i­can peo­ple and face a sim­i­lar elec­toral out­come in 2020 to that of con­gres­sional Repub­li­cans in 2000 – losses in both houses.”
