Final Word from Tuesday, June 4, 2019

The Czech Donald Trump has his own Mueller Report. The EU Commission's preliminary audit report that was leaked to Hospodářské noviny on Fri. has many of the same characteristics as the U.S. document that is tearing apart U.S. politics and society. In both, there are stated indications of potential inappropriate or even criminal activity, but no recommendation to indict. ODS Chair Petr Fiala, who wants Andrej Babiš to seek a new vote of confidence over the Commission's report, is the Cory Booker of Czech politics. Booker, a senator, is using impeachment to try to win his party's nomination for U.S. president. This goes against the wishes of highly influential Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, who is calling for caution in basing the presidential campaign on a push for impeachment. She fears that this will be counterproductive in the 2020 elections. Andrej Babiš has his own Mueller Report, but he faces a Czech opposition that doesn't have a Nancy Pelosi.
