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

Why is it a big deal that the anti-emergency resolution will pass in the senate? You see in the media that there's a "GOP rebellion" and shock that Trump will have to use his first veto.

Trump declared the emergency and will veto the resolution and there won't be enough votes to override it. They found 4 republicans to vote against it. Whoop de doo. Is it the media trying to make a mountain out of a molehill?

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

Well, the hope is that this is how stuff starts - when Nixon started sliding downhill, initially only a few Repubs voted against him on stuff - couple weeks later a few more, then a few more, and he's on a helicopter waving goodbye. We can hope.

It’s all just kabuki theater as far as I can tell.

Thanks a lot Mason. Glad we're shedding good posters so that a few derps can get some shots in with terrible posts while we coddle and try to nudge them into better posting. Really making the forum better.

I fear what Drumpf does (or tries to do) on his way out the door between Election Day in November 2020 and January 2021.

I tried that by listening to the golf show on Sirius and even that I couldn't stomach because it was Hank Haney, who is easily one of the biggest lowlifes in the sport

The “rebellion” is McConnel buying himself political cover. He planned to punt this **** back to Trump to veto from day 1.

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

Oh good Erik Prince was on the document request list. I'm going to go ahead and guarantee he doesn't fully cooperate, but I'm glad he's still on the radar. You want to see someone who could **** up big chunks of the world, he's one.

EDIT: But the blurb I caught said no Ivanka or Whitaker? There are simply countless crimes and crimey people to interview.

I read this was just the first wave and to expect the committee to make plenty more news before the week is out.

Don’t be so naive.
You believe the threats made publicly by Trump on Twitter were actually done privately greater than a week before we knew about them, that both the decision to delay and the specific date of rescheduling was worked out greater than a week before any threats were made public or any announcements were made by Democrats on the oversight committee, and that Trump knew of the rescheduling far enough in advance to schedule his own meeting with KJU on the same date? Doubling down on this conspiracy theory after being shown the dates you were shown is literally insane.

I'm not even sure what this is referring to but my post is only carrying water for reality. Insisting that Trump scheduled his own meeting to conflict with the Cohen testimony isn't even a key precondition for believing whatever view of Trump you like to believe (not that avoiding cognitive dissonance is an acceptable excuse for rejecting reality but it would at least make more sense). Markksman's idiotic conspiracy theory and your defense given what we know of how everything unfolded is frankly an embarrassment to the liberals of this forum who rightly believe that basing yourself in reality is still generally a good idea.

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

He scheduled the NK Summit before they decided new date of hearing. period.

It doesn’t make sense as a theory due to reality and also because there you go again saying trump is strategic...if he really could have chosen the date after Cohen date he would not have had them the same date because he’d want more attention on him...that’s why he had a second summit in the first place

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

Probably slow ponied on this but too many threads to keep track of.
Quote:
Special counsel Robert Mueller on Monday notified a federal judge about an Instagram post by President Donald Trump’s friend Roger Stone that could be in violation of the judge’s strict gag order on Stone.

Stone’s posted the “Framed” Instagram image two days after Jackson ordered his defense lawyers to explain why they did not tell her about the planned publication of a book by Stone that could violate her gag order. The book is entitled “The Myth of Russian Collusion: The Inside Story of How Trump Really Won.”
