Fox News judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano: "When the president asked Corey Lewandowski ... to get Mueller fired, that's obstruction of justice. When the president asked his then-White House counsel to get Mueller fired & then lie about it, that's obstruction of justice." pic.twitter.com/5k3dSpD76v— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) April 25, 2019

Bleacher Nation has the details.
My favorite part of the story? During the 4th inning he said to the police: "SORRY OFFICER, I HAVE TO GET BACK TO YOU BECAUSE WE’RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A BASEBALL GAME AND I HAVE TO GO PITCH IN A HIGH-INTENSITY SITUATION."
He did, too. He got the save last night.
Sounds like a lot to me, but it's not even in the ballpark to be considered a heavy Twitter user.
According to this piece, 80% of tweets are done by 10% of Twitters users. The president, for instance, has tweeted 41,000 times and has been on Twitter about as long as I have. Former sportscaster (and radio talk show host) Bruce Wolf has tweeted 72,000 times. Local Chicago journalist Robert Loerzel (who is a great follow by the way) has tweeted 372,000 times.
Just explaining why your Twitter feed may be dominated by a few people. If it's dominated by me, you don't follow any heavy Twitter users.

Yes, he paid a porn star off just before the election to hide the news of his affair (a criminal offense--he is named as a co-conspirator in court).
Yes, he accepted and applauded help from Russia, even if "collusion" couldn't be proven. It's still anti-American and despicable.
Both the worst thing is that he still won't do anything about Russians attacking our political system, because he thinks it will help him.
Today's bombshell: Former Homeland Security Chief Nielson was told NOT to mention her concerns about Russians attacking us again in 2020 to the President.
Jim O'Donnell wrote about Chet's final days in the Daily Herald. This is the untold story of what happened to Chet in South Carolina, and the story of his passing.
Robert Feder has the details about Chet's memorial service...
A public memorial service for Chet Coppock will be held at 10 a.m. Monday at Saint Pauls United Church of Christ, 2335 North Orchard Street in Chicago. The famed sportscaster and self-styled “Godfather of Sports Talk Radio” died April 17 in Savannah, Georgia — 11 days after he was injured in a car accident in Okatie, South Carolina. Coppock would have turned 71 on April 30. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Chicago Baseball Cancer Charities.

What will tomorrow bring?
Ray Starr earned the nickname Iron Man by pitching both ends of more than 40 minor league doubleheaders during his 20-year career. One of his memorable quirks? Each season he pitched fastballs and curves for two hours on the first day of spring training. (Modern Day pitching coaches faint at the mention of this ritual). As a wartime pitcher with the Reds, Starr won 15 games in 1942, and made the All-Star team. But that was really his only good year. The Cubs picked him up from the Pirates during their pennant winning 1945 season, but Iron Man didn’t exactly pitch well. His ERA was 7.42. Starr gave up 17 hits and 7 walks in just 13 innings with the pennant winning Cubs. He retired after the 1945 season.
They wrote an unbelievably nice piece about me in the Orland Park Patch. You can read it here.

The non-partisan Associated Press has fact checked them.
The AP doesn't engage in opinion or activist journalism. They are Jack Webb in Dragnet. Just the facts, ma'am. According to them, Trump and Barr are misleading and outright lying to the American people.
Listen to it here.
