Quid pro WHOA — what a year!
In January, Democrats took control of the House amid what would become the longest federal government shutdown in history. Springtime brought, besides cherry blossoms, special counsel Robert S. Mueller II’s release of his report on Russian interference in the 2016 election — and a blindsiding by his own boss, Attorney General William Barr.
And as autumn fell, those pesky House Dems launched an inquiry into President Donald Trump over his alleged withholding of congressionally appropriated funds to Ukraine for political purposes. and capping the year with the House adopting two articles of impeachment against Trump.
The wild events of 2019 gave cartoonists like me plenty of political fish to fry.
