This is an excerpt from The Stakes 2020, BuzzFeed News' newsletter about what really matters in the 2020 campaign. You can sign up here.

Jim Himes is a six-term member of Congress from Connecticut’s prosperous southern coast and a senior Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee. He went a bit viral last week with an appearance on Meet the Press, where he yelled about Rand Paul and false equivalency and urged Democrats to keep it simple — just call it “corruption,” not a quid pro quo. On Wednesday during the hearing, he focused on that message: that Trump was engaged in “corruption.” We texted just after the hearing concluded.
