For lawmakers looking for a way to end the longest government shutdown in history, we have a suggestion. Google the 13th Amendment and read what it says. It’s just one sentence.

If you want a president who is clearly compromised by a hostile government, that's your right. If you want a president who lies like a rug, that's your right. If you want a president who caters to racists elements and hostile governments, that's your right.

The Post's report that President Trump "has gone to extraordinary lengths to conceal details of his conversations with Russian President Vladimir Putin" — including taking away an interpreter's notes and instructing the person not to discuss what was said even with senior officials of his own…
