The Trumps are called a ‘heartless couple’ for grinning photo op with baby orphaned in El Paso shooting

Westlake Legal Group Fxprwa9l9hBiI24PCLpye0jy3_Im-YfQfuPvhwH_KF0 The Trumps are called a 'heartless couple' for grinning photo op with baby orphaned in El Paso shooting r/politics

After the shooting, Andre’s brother Tito told NPR that the Anchondo family has always been “Republican conservatives” and his brother “was very supportive of Trump.” He added that he wanted to meet with Trump “to see if he’s genuine” and “if my political views are right or wrong” as well as “see if he feels maybe some kind of remorse for statements that he’s made” about immigrants. “I just want to have a human-to-human talk with him and see how he feels.”

This just depresses me so much. The parents of the orphan child were Republicans, and Trump supporters. The uncle of the orphan still thinks there’s something to be gained by talking with Trump, that Trump feels any empathy at all, and he’s still wondering if he’s wrong to support the party that still stands 100% behind the rhetoric that led to his brother’s death.

Like, how do you combat that level of brainwashing?

The impeachment inquiry Trump has feared is here

Westlake Legal Group pgQn-Y7jg4CmTx-7tu2WN8-JECwddibSb2rzBcNYO5A The impeachment inquiry Trump has feared is here r/politics

Let me take a crack at each one of those.

“About time” or “They should have started this ages ago”

They did. They’ve had power since January. Mueller completed his Report in April. Mueller testified in July. In August, we’ve begun the impeachment process. This is breakneck speed for Congress.

“Pelosi won’t do anything”

It’s starting to seem like this was a well calculated plan by Pelosi, after all. Over a majority of her caucus has called for impeachment proceedings. She has publicly resisted, and the narrative why is because of politics. If she pulls the trigger, and gives her full support to impeachment now, as opposed to a few months ago, she now has the narrative that the evidence is so overwhelming against him, she has to impeach even if it isn’t the best thing politically to do.

(I’m not sure I agree it’s not the best thing politically to do. This is not 1998, and we aren’t impeaching over a blowjob. Also, we’ve impeached twice in this nation’s history. Both times the other party won the next election.)

“Doesn’t matter because the senate/mitch won’t convict”

Irrelevant. He’s impeached in the House. He will become the third American President to be impeached. That hurts.

Would an “acquittal” in the Senate help Trump in the election? Why would it? Should we really give the swing voters of America such little credit, that they wouldn’t realize any trial would just be a show rigged by McConnell and a jury of GOP Senators? We’ll put on our evidence in the House. The American people will see it.

Additionally, the prevailing legal theory is, an acquittal in the Senate, would in no way affect a prosecutors’ ability to prosecute him after he leaves the Oval Office.

Nadler Says It Out Loud: ‘This Is Formal Impeachment Proceedings’

Westlake Legal Group PcW9QuPSK2feLf2wMrVWN9uxsPI7zcB1HtLMgjZkKJA Nadler Says It Out Loud: ‘This Is Formal Impeachment Proceedings’ r/politics

the issue is that you could sell clinton’s impeachment to the american public

because we are a bunch of dumbs who get ‘he cheated on his wife’ much, much easier than a long list of civil violations more in the vein of interfacing with moneymen and legislature. one is a moral outrage, the other is some strange confusing thing that scares us

i’m not saying i hope he won’t be impeached or that he won’t be impeached, i dearly hope he does, and – well, i guess we’ll see. i wouldn’t bet on it but if there’s a possibility there’s some decent folks in the senate who will take a gamble on human decency there must be an attempt, at the least. for trump’s presidency to go down in history unchallenged would be a black mark on our heritage about as big as iran-contra.

just to emphasize the distinction between the two

Retired Marine 4-Star Warns White Nationalist Terrorism Is a Threat Equal to ISIS

I’m guessing you mean it’s worse because it isn’t some kind of vague, abstract, grainy-video threat from the other side of the world, but from a legal standpoint, countering domestic terrorism is actually legally more difficult.

The US federal government has a lot more legal leeway in combating foreign terrorism versus domestic terrorism, all while having to be very careful not to target any group for ideology due to the issue of free speech. For example, they can’t target white supremacists simply because they hate non-whites; their viewpoint is still protected speech. If you’re going after domestic terrorists, you really have to make sure your case looks like there was a credible and even specific threat and that the defense doesn’t have much of an argument they were just being broadly targeted due to ideology.
