"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"...doesn't philosophy amount to the sum of all thinkable and unthinkable errors, ceaselessly repeated?"--Jean-Luc Marion

“The opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice."--Bryan Stevenson

Not even on TeeVee

That's not "walking it back." That's the same argument he uses on obstruction of justice: that without an underlying crime, there can't be any obstruction.

Obstruction, of course, is the crime, separate and apart from any other action. Just as accepting information from a foreign agent is a crime in the context of a political campaign. The quality of the information is irrelevant.  Mere acceptance is the crime. Discussing it with the agent could well be conspiracy, too.

Trump is his own worst lawyer.
