Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

they'll try that and if it doesn't work, then seamlessly transition to the next stage and so on and so on, eventually getting to "but I had to or else hillary would've won she's worse and you all deserved it, etc". Well hopefully eventually getting to that stage anyway. All the while pretending they never argued the previous things in the first place. They just want to get away with it. That's all they and his voters care about.

Also how the hell is Cohen out of jail for 2 months because his shoulder hurts. Not like he's a key witness of a possible thing a country with a known history of conveinent heart attacks, falling off buildings, poisonings, and the like that wouldn't want to get exposed by what he says.

Who is the “they”? I’ll preface this by saying that I really know little about federal criminal law. But federal prosecutors are part of the Department of Justice, so Bob Barr has authority over them. If Barr is going to sweep the Mueller report under the rug, he’s not going to do anything on behalf of Congress in the matter, either.

This is most likely outcome.

CNN hired the Trumpkin chick to buy access to more Trumpkin sources. Coordinate? Sure. Go call up hotels and Acosta and his team some hotel rooms.

After O’Rourke said on MSNBC last week that he would “absolutely” remove an existing stretch of border wall from his hometown of El Paso, Trump told reporters in Washington on Tuesday that the statement marked “probably the end of his political career.”

Actually they just held that the 8th amendment prohibition against excessive fines is selectively incorporated to the states as well as the federal government. We don’t yet know how much that will limit civil forfeiture, although the answer is almost assuredly: somewhat.

And yes I know that what Trump's doing is criminal vs what the VA gov did but it's the same basic "support your team" mentality.
Comparing being a racist 30 years ago in a yearbook picture with colluding with a hostile foreign government to influence an election for the office you currently hold is a .... hot take.

Like, for perspective here: Draft some articles of impeachment against Northam that the Dems can vote on for impeachment. What is your first count?

Right but the attack was that “Dems need to do more” when he refused to resign. Like, what can they actually do here?

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

I don’t know how or why I got subbed for this. It only recently happened, and I suspect a coworker or something did it. But if they annoy people i’ll stop just let me know - there’s some crazy ass ones I see lately and never know how lol-worthy or just obnoxious they are. To me they are INCREDIBLE because i know so many must take it seriously and some send money. Jfc i cant even imagine.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

https://oversight.house.gov/sites/de...el%20Cohen.pdf
After consulting with the Department of Justice and with Rep. Adam Schiff, the Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Chairman Cummings has set the scope for the Oversight Committee’s hearing with Mr. Cohen to address the following issues:
•the President’s debts and payments relating to efforts to influence the 2016 election;

•the President’s compliance with financial disclosure requirements;

•the President’s compliance with campaign finance laws;

•the President’s compliance with tax laws;

•the President’s potential and actual conflicts of interest;

•the President’s business practices;

•the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C.;

•the accuracy of the President’s public statements;

•potentially fraudulent or inappropriate practices by the Trump Foundation; and

•public efforts by the President and his attorney to intimidate Mr. Cohen or others not to testify.
Mr. Cohen has agreed to testify voluntarily and in public before the Oversight Committee. He will not be under subpoena.

On February 28, 2019, the day after Mr. Cohen testifies before the Oversight Committee, he will appear in closed session before the Intelligence Committee. The scope of the Oversight Committee’s open public hearing will not include questions relating to the Intelligence Committee’s investigation of efforts by Russia and other foreign entities to influence the U.S. political process during and since the 2016 U.S. election, and the counterintelligence threat arising from any links or coordination between U.S. persons and the Russian government, including any financial or other compromise or leverage foreign actors may possess over Donald Trump, his family, his business interests, or his associates. Among other lines of inquiry within its jurisdiction and the investigative parameters it announced on February 6, 2019, the Intelligence Committee’s closed interview also will examine in depth Mr. Cohen’s prior false statements to the Intelligence Committee.
