Recommended Posts

So they've orchestrated this so the retiring guy casts the deciding vote?  Seems like a safe no then?

Schiff will win the D ticket in 2024 assuming there isn’t an incumbent. 

If Warren gets the nomination she would be wise to ask him to be VP.

Her question to Chief Justice Roberts put a nail in her coffin today. It was completely inappropriate and made her look petulant.

I give no credit to any unless there are enough to change things. Otherwise I’m assuming everyone agreed to let her look good.

Just going to repost Popehat's tweet because it currently seems relevant again - 

 

It's amusing, in an apocalyptic sort of way, that people are still asking "what will the Republicans' defense be to this," when the defense is and always has been "#### you."

So Collins and Murkowski get the up votes, Lamar falls on his sword. The rest of the GOP senators tuck away their gelatinous backbones in a fanny pack, marching off to their next term like the spineless amoebas they are. Will someone ban me already. I’ve had enough.

Keen analysis of McConnell's machinations: putting the focus and "blame" on Senator Alexander might lighten the kneejerk reaction to other Senators, namely Gardner and Tillis.

Will there be one Democrat who can admit this is no where close to impeachable or will 100 percent of them toe the Democrat line and all fall into lockstep?

Gutless...sorry, I tend to like Lamar...but thats such a bogus line of crap.

The GOP are dead to me and I’m barring my 4-year old daughter from voting Republican until there is no Republic left, which might be just around the corner.

They ran bot armies that basically dictated the level of discourse, provided a lot of funding through back channels, stole and shared all kinds of intel, and cracked voting machines.

How much smoke do you need?

You basically just described the Democrats in 2015-2016.

Bot armies attempting to control social media: see Correct the Record

Funding through back channels: see Clinton Foundation, Joe/Hunter Biden, pedophile recently arrested who illegally funded Clinton, others

Stole and shared all kinds of intel: see FusionGPS, Steele (and his, get this, Russian sources), the FBI and their illegal FISAs (according to IG and DOJ),  and the media who leaked the unverified piss dossier and illegal surveillance of a political opponent

And cracked voting machines: see GA, MI, PA, and maybe VA (can't remember the last one)

 

Hopefully sooner than later you guys wake up and realize that everything you accuse Trump of doing is just projection and cover up by the guilty parties.

I didn’t realize that a) there is no provision for Roberts to cast tie breaking votes and b) a 50/50 vote fails because it didn’t get a majority. So Murkowski’s Hamlet act is ultimately irrelevant. 

I agree that Alexander is serving as a deflector shield for Gardner, Tillis and McSally

It’s unquestionably impeachable.

Which act?  The one where there was any sliver of hope for the GOP to at least entertain doing the right thing?

I know, but I can’t imagine Roberts injecting himself into the debate this way. Him sitting out the vote aligns perfectly with his desire not to make waves in this trial

I am incredibly proud of the work Adam Schiff and the House staff have done preparing for and arguing the impeachment trial. I find it vitally important for Democrats to fight for what is just and right, even against insurmountable odds.

They fought with passion and virtue, and my head will be held high, regardless of the ultimate outcome.

Tomorrow, Republicans will go on record with a vote about whether or not they want to hear more about corruption in the White House.

Take note of what your senators do, and vote accordingly when their terms mature. Do not take this lightly - our Democracy is at stake.

The world is watching. Our children are watching. How will you be remembered in this time of crises?

Him sitting out the vote is in line with his tack as a non-activist judge that gives wide berth to precedent and Congressional primacy over the judiciary, likely even adopting their prudential rules for sitting justices during impeachment hearings.
