Background Briefing
May 22, 2019
Re: Edward McCaffery

Edward McCaffery was interviewed about President Trump's tax troubles. "I think we can see, after the devastating blow of the Mueller non-report report, lots of us, progressives were waiting for a smoking gun," McCaffery explained. "They didn’t get the smoking gun and they got depressed, but a day like today shows that maybe there’s wisdom behind Pelosi’s strategy, but we might be seeing death by a thousand pellet guns."
