President Trump takes credit for progress in talks between the Koreas as his supporters chant “Nobel” at a rally in Michigan. Michael Scherer authored the Big Idea in today's edition as James is on vacation. We have a full slate of Post authors for you this week before James returns on Monday. With Breanne Deppisch and Joanie Greve. THE BIG IDEA: When it comes to electoral politics, this is not normal long ago became the new normal. The latest transgression by the transgressor in chief just doesn’t seem to move the needle. (Send a bodyguard to raid a doctor’s office? Yawn.) Barring something major, like firing special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, it’s not clear the daily outrages have much more downside. And that’s good news for President Trump, who needs the upside of outrage to stay afloat.Trump’s big gambit has so far paid off — at least for him. He broke onto the scene as a political punchline making an argument no … [Read more...] about The Daily 202: Trump’s big gambit has paid off — at least for him.
With Breanne Deppisch and Joanie Greve. THE BIG IDEA: Lordy, there may be reports. This week has brought several new clues that Bob Mueller views his charge as special counsel quite expansively. Carol D. Leonnig and Robert Costa scooped last night that Mueller informed Donald Trump’s attorneys in early March that he is continuing to investigate the president but does not consider him a criminal target at this point. (A “subject” can always become a “target” later on.) Here’s an especially interesting passage from their piece that may foreshadow how the next few months might play out: “The special counsel also told Trump’s lawyers that he is preparing a report about the president’s actions while in office and potential obstruction of justice … Mueller reiterated the need to interview Trump — both to understand whether he had any corrupt intent to thwart the Russia investigation and to complete this portion of … [Read more...] about The Daily 202: Mueller may release multiple reports on Trump, obstruction and Russian interference
With Breanne Deppisch and Joanie Greve. THE BIG IDEA: Martin Luther King Jr.’s final speech, delivered 50 years ago tonight in Memphis, is well remembered for its prophetic musings on mortality. “I've seen the Promised Land,” he said on a stormy night at the Mason Temple. “I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight that we, as a people, will get to the Promised Land.” The reverend’s declaration that he was not worried about anything and did not fear any man — because he had seen the glory of the coming of the Lord — followed more than 40 minutes of reflection on the cause that brought him to Memphis — and martyrdom. Slain at just 39, the extemporaneous oratory on the eve of his assassination ensured that King would be remembered as a sort of American Moses. But the meat of his larger message is also worth revisiting on this dreadful half-century anniversary. His case for the virtue of nonviolent protest, … [Read more...] about The Daily 202: MLK’s final speech — delivered 50 years ago today — was full of timely and timeless teachings
