It’s time to start impeachment hearings. Today.

Westlake Legal Group 0rTgHInGlDmEO4rakLjmkd84PvsQvj_15OeQ6g8DGYI It’s time to start impeachment hearings. Today. r/politics

From the wiki for The Foundations of Geopolitics by Aleksandr Dugin. A textbook of the Russian military:

The book emphasizes that Russia must spread Anti-Americanism everywhere: “the main ‘scapegoat’ will be precisely the U.S.”

In the United States:

Russia should use its special services within the borders of the United States to fuel instability and separatism, for instance, provoke “Afro-American racists”. Russia should “introduce geopolitical disorder into internal American activity, encouraging all kinds of separatism and ethnic, social and racial conflicts, actively supporting all dissident movements – extremist, racist, and sectarian groups, thus destabilizing internal political processes in the U.S. It would also make sense simultaneously to support isolationist tendencies in American politics”.[9]””

Megathread: Treasury denies Democrats’ request for Trump tax returns

Westlake Legal Group x3Xywatj8wEu46zvbySQVYeg93hfFHW1eH5gDuWyimU Megathread: Treasury denies Democrats’ request for Trump tax returns r/politics

I think this is how the coup d’etat becomes complete. Every day we’re witnessing blatant refusal to obey the law by Trump appointees, sometimes several of them per day. This just continues now on a virtually daily basis — some of them momentous, like ‘delayed elections’, others stuff that your average punter barely cares about — till it becomes clear that those laws are former laws now. And the coup’s then over. It’s done it’s job.

Welcome to the Trump dictatorship.

400 former DOJ prosecutors: Mueller had enough evidence to charge Trump

Westlake Legal Group _wAO8tf-1V8dLoJW96-_9q01-DRf82nD0aBFtZo_evg 400 former DOJ prosecutors: Mueller had enough evidence to charge Trump r/politics

The orange cyst treats our constitution like a business contract trying to exploit every loophole possible

It’s The Art of The Deal: piss and moan, and whine, and cry, and deflect, and blame, and distract, and lie, and pee your pants until everyone is so disgusted they give up and give him what he wants just so he stops being a piss soaked toddly crying on the floor.

And it’s working. Mainly because, inexplicably, 30% of us respect (and 50+% of us tolerate) this type of behavior from our President and other elected politicians let’s just be honest, it’s like 90% Republicans.

Trump would have been charged with obstruction were he not president, hundreds of former federal prosecutors assert

Westlake Legal Group kTUGdaNb4URuMXpXzHXDd7MEUFYPhBj56AzNkQoGlJM Trump would have been charged with obstruction were he not president, hundreds of former federal prosecutors assert r/politics

I feel your outrage as well, but I’m going to go Devil’s Advocate.

If basic political comprehension were enough we wouldn’t have a President Trump. His base is the neo nazis, vanilla racists, the alt-right, the “burn it all down” crowd. I’m not talking about the general. He would not have even made it through the primary. Hell, even Barr made it clear he himself hadn’t even read the Mueller Report based on his replies at the hearing.

This requires bringing people in front of House committees to interview on recorded and publicly viewable television. This is getting the evidence, closing off loop holes, etc. to serve as evidence once impeachment has happened.

Right now look what would probably happen based on Barr’s hearing if they impeached today:

House: The report speaks for itelf! Just read it.

McConnell: Mueller didn’t say to indict so he clearly exonerated Trump.

House: What about X, Y, Z? That doesn’t make sense. We call Mueller to testify.

McConnell: Barr says Mueller agreed with him on a private phone call. I’m not going to call someone who hasn’t voiced a contradictory view. Time to vote not-guilty Senate.

So the hearings need to happen first. Now that takes time.

For the good faith actors, they need time to prepare. To do this right. You don’t want to accidentally make an important witness look like a fool you can’t trust.

For the bad faith actors, well, sadly part of how the court system works for these political matters requires you provide enough rope for the bad faith actor to tie their own noose. That takes times and a few repeated offending actions.

As hair pulling agonizing all of this is, just remember it also prevents Republicans from easily impeaching any Democrat that want. If the system was too greased you know they would have impeached Obama for breathing.

Megathread: House panel issues report citing Barr for contempt

Westlake Legal Group rszJsW18Ny0N3IMD2yvHT8ozAHuxFYuqUpZ6Tt3MJ34 Megathread: House panel issues report citing Barr for contempt r/politics

I have a genuine question so please don’t crucify me here.

The Justice Department is only allowing 12 top lawmakers to view those materials, which Democrats have refused to do because they wouldn’t be able to discuss it with their colleagues.

My understanding is that existing law says that the only members of congress who have the clearance to view completely unredacted classified documents of this nature would be those in the gang of 8/house Intel committee etc.

Barr offered from day 1 to brief those in said comitte with the clearance to see it as required by law , however Nancy Pelosi and the democrats in general refused to read it, saying instead they refuse to view it until everyone in congress can see it, which they know isn’t legal and therefore have created a condition which could not be met.

I’m legit not shilling for Republicans here but hear me out: the argument being levied against the democrats here is that the individuals who legally should have access were given access, but for political reasons denied access and made a demand that all of congress be able to view this classified content, knowing that it’s not legal to do so.

Isn’t it sort of a better idea to view the unredacted report as offered vs refusing to and then making it seem like Barr is refusing to show them the report they themselves refused to read?

That’s the entire point of the Intel comitte, they get to read shit nobody else can, it’s like their literal job.

I get that barr is clearly a shill covering for trump and his lies etc, but is there an actual real argument against this? It seems to me that those who legally had access among the dems/congress were given access, but they refused. Then they set a requirement that they knew could not be met.

Can anyone explain this to a layman please?

Nobody’s sure how seriously to take Trump’s suggestion he’s owed 2 extra years in office

No they didn’t. The consensus was Dems were taking the house likely by a decent margin. You found the few odd balls that thought maybe based on the economy Republicans could hold but from about mid 2017 on most agreed the GOP was going to lose the house.

The 2020 Senate however looks trouble some for the idea of Dems retaking even if they win the presidency. If you count up the safe and reasonably safe seats the Democrats should have about 46. There are 3 states rated as toss ups. Jones in Alabama, McSally in Arizona, and Gardner in Colorado. I honestly think Jones is a toss up if and only if Roy Moore runs again. But still pulling those 3 off only gets you to 49-51.

To get to 50-50 you’d need all three toss ups and pick up one of these seats: Perdue in GA, Collins in ME, or Tillis in NC. The next state that is even reasonable to consider as a pick up would be Ernst in IA cause every other seat is in a deep red state. The fact Abrams isn’t running in GA is a blow since she was so close in 2018. Collins while she seems weak has won her past elections with 60 some points of the vote. North Carolina is swingable as seen by it’s current state government but I’ve not heard much recruiting there. To oust Ernst you’d likely be relying on the state going blue and hoping that pushes a canidate across the finish line. But again if you lose any of those toss ups you now require 2 pick ups.
