Trump


#1891

Yeah, there’s a thread started on that topic. I figured it would take up some space. I guess tomorrow he’ll declare an emergency or start a new war.

#1892

It’s now the longest shutdown in US government history.

Edited to add:


#1894

Looks like Barr is going to get confirmed. I think Trump is going to regret that choice.


#1895

Watched Maddow and O’Donnell tonight. If this is real, Cohen is about to pin a federal crime directly on Trump.


#1896

I think he may do it when he addresses congress. I think he is done with being trumps butt-boy.


#1897

That part is clear, but while I’m not a lawyer (and not even an American), my understanding is that if this is the case, congress has a constitutional duty to impeach the president for “Hight crimes and misdemeanors”. The wording, which I looked up, is not totally clear but it’s obvious to me that the intention was that, if there is compelling evidence of a “high crime”, congress has an obligation to impeach.


#1898

It’s important to note that the evidence of Trump’s stubborning perjury is not just coming from Cohen but includes emails, texts and other witness statements.

Kamala Harris is running for the dems. Should be interesting.


#1901

Love it!!! Too bad she wasn’t from Michigan.


#1902

Hope O’Rourke runs. Wins primary. Picks Harris as running mate. I’m sure he’d do better around the country.


#1903

Interesting comparison. I never thought they were much alike.


#1904

They both had an affinity for prostitutes.


#1905

Well. There ya go. Lol.


#1906

I guess since Michele has left us it’s up to me post pro-Trump propaganda.


#1907

I don’t know that she’s left forever. She might be, of course, but I assumed she’s just taking a break. I hope she comes back when Trump gets impeached.


#1908

Lol.

Ocasio Cortez wants to tax individuals who make over 10 million dollars at a 70% marginal rate. Which is lower than Eisenhower’s 91%.


#1909

I wonder how many Democrats will run in the primary.


#1910

So far there’s Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and Kirsten Gillibrand. I’m not sure any of them can beat Trump.


#1911

There’s a few others, but those are the biggest names. Warren should not win. If the DNC learned anything.
