For John, BLUF: At the pace of Mr Mueller's operation, the below approach could shut down Government for several years. Nothing to see here; just move along.

Paul Krugman Retweeted Charles M. BlowCan we see the Impeachment articles? Can someone at least name the felony of which Mr Blow speaks?
Yes. Kavanaugh may yet be confirmed, but this will make the SC fundamentally illegitimate.Charles M. Blow
Again, how are we going to move forward with a SCOTUS nominee chosen by a president implicated in a conspiracy to commit a felony?

As for Professor Krugman, the math says there are nine members of the US Supreme Court and Judge Kavanaugh would be one of those nine. How does that make the US Supreme Court fundamentally illegitimate? I could see an argument for split decisions, but does that make the whole apparatus illegitimate? Maybe Professor Krugman is "fundamentally illegitimate."
Under the Blow Doctrine, how can the President even sign a budget bill? Maybe he should just veto authorizations and appropriations.
It is interesting to note that Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) has signed off on Judge Kavanaugh.
