Per CNET, Uber will start bringing the ban-hammer down on riders:
Uber announced Wednesday that those passengers who receive bad marks from drivers will be booted from the platform. But, Uber said, they’ll have to “develop a significantly below average rating.”
I look forward to the inevitable outcry from Republicans and Conservatives when this becomes yet another place they can be “de-platformed.”

Here are my principal conclusions:
1. Attorney General Barr has deliberately misrepresented Mueller’s report.
2. President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct.
3. Partisanship has eroded our system of checks and balances.
4. Few members of Congress have read the report.
