I & I Editorial Board

The Issues and Insights Editorial Board has decades of experience in journalism, commentary and public policy.


  • The whistleblower does not matter. His reports have been backed up by the actual persons involved who were not already made to be crooks.

    Trump violated a rule so serious the Founding Fathers put it directly into the Constitution itself. It was followed up with Article 52 section 30121 in the United States Code.

    The choice now is between following the Constitution as their oath requires, or supporting their “leader”.

  • Write your congress critter tonight or tomorrow using this wording for schiff who apparently doesn’t know the leaker – aka whistleblower.
    #EricCiaramella is the leaker, pass it on to schiff.
