I'd say the biggest news is Comey saying that his personal interpretation of the Flynn thing is that Trump was directing him to drop it. That is Comey saying that Trump is guilty of obstruction of justice in Comey's mind.

It's the game plan. They know Trumpkins only watch FOX and that FOX will show the viewers what they want to see.

I hate Chaffetz the most, I remember his talking down to and patronizing Janet Yellen (I think it was her). Either way, it was someone way more important than him.

Re: Comey in the House: A Sweat Thread

Let's just all admit that the questioning on both sides has been pretty embarrassing all around. It's just that the whole matter stinks so bad that the republicans look worse for trying to minimize it.

Re: Comey in the House: A Sweat Thread

republicans throw piles of money at a 24/7 agitprop media complex designed to perpetuate non-stories and generate nonstop outrage about any made up scandal that might involve a democrat. and with every step that republicans take to implement a straight up fascist, authoritarian agenda, dems throw up their hands in the air and be like "waaf"

seriously you guys are such a ****ing joke

Tons of people, Dems too, respond to authoritarianism. Just look at how many people think it's OK for a parent to hit their own kid. It's systematically ingrained from childhood.

At this point--don't ask what the Democrats can do for you, ask what you can do for the Democrats.

I agree with this. This is obv crime level **** but because we live in the age of the orange fuhrer we are ****ing numb to these things happening, so to fade our own sadness if this does not lead to impeachment, we pretend like this is not big deal. This is enormous in every way and mueller is certainly sitting there rubbing his fingers together like mr burns as we speak.
