So, the Democratic House apparently mistrusts their GOP colleagues so much(rightfully so imo) that they're trying to arrange the whistleblower's testimony in such a way to keep his/her identity from said GOP colleagues. Testimony from remote location via video, with face and voice digitally altered, is what was reported.

Kind of silly for Democratic presidential candidates to be talking about reaching across the aisle when the lack of trust is this high.

I think that most of them have caught on. Tulsi Gabbard is carrying water for the GOP for whatever reason, Amy Klobuchar is also delusional about bipartisanship and I think that so is Biden but even he has toned it down.

Agree with Gabbard. and Klobuchar is definitely too conservative for my taste. But i do think Biden's talk about working with Republicans is/was more of a political ploy, knowing that when people are polled, the majority says that they want the division to stop and both sides work together to get things done.
Obviously if elected, Reps make this impossible and I think any Dem would stick to their side of the fence...
But still, does come off as naive and out of touch at this moment.

WASHINGTON—Opting to take more of a wait-and-see approach instead of rushing to pass judgment, Republican lawmakers reportedly looked on in silence Tuesday as President Trump worked his way through each of their families and, one by one, strangled all their loved ones to death. “After I watched the president slowly and methodically squeeze the life out of my wife’s body as she gasped, futilely, for breath, he gave me his personal assurance that he was not responsible for her death, so I continue to stand by this administration,” said Rep. Scott DesJarlais (R-TN), who along with every Republican in both the House and Senate stated that while killing off their families in cold blood might not be entirely proper, it was certainly not an impeachable offense, no matter how the media tried to spin it. “Now, this is not an action I would have taken myself. I personally would not have wrapped my hands around my 5-year-old son’s neck and crushed his windpipe. But if Donald Trump’s approach to governing is sometimes a bit outside the ordinary, that’s because Donald Trump is no ordinary president. And maybe that’s not such a bad thing.” Later, with his beloved sister’s face turning purple as the commander-in-chief asphyxiated her with a length of barbed wire, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) appeared on several television news networks and said impeaching the president for her imminent death would be “insane.”

Yup
I heard yesterday that this betrayal of the kurds, if under putin's direction would eventually give Russia an easier route to the Atlantic ocean.

Don't sit here and act all shocked that Trump made another impulsive decision, GOP, you knew damn well he's been like this for the past THREE FUCKING YEARS. He's openly bragged about how he knows more than military officials, for God's sakes (which should've offended you guys, since, y'know, you love to brag all the time about how "patriotic" you are and how much you "support our troops" and blah, blah, blah, but hey, I guess it's more important to placate and encourage Trump's immature braggadocio instead, right?).

Like I said, if their turning on him means we get Trump out of here quicker, I'll go with it, but I don't want them to be absolved of their role in letting this insanity go on for as long as it has, either.
Yes, and great fierceness from you! Oh, and nooo, they shouldn't get away with their enabling, etc!

This is wonderful news. I sure hope our Trump supporting posters are reading all of this-if I were them (and had, y'know, any sense of shame or humility besides), I'd be feeling pretty embarrassed right about now.
Well, except for forbidding people to to testify. How long can that be drawn out?

There are Capitol Police , and a jail in the Capitol building.

From Rep Rashida Talib

Quote:


Freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib said Democratic lawmakers were trying to figure out how to arrest White House officials who ignore congressional subpoenas.

Tlaib told constituents at her “Congress, Coffee, and Conversation” event in Detroit on Tuesday that lawmakers were focused on how best to take members of President Trump’s cabinet into custody.

“This is the first time we’ve ever had a situation like this. So they’re trying to figure out, no joke, is it the DC police that goes and gets them? We don’t know. Where do we hold them?” she said, according to the pro-Trump America Rising PAC.

Tlaib was caught on video speculating what might happen to Trump administration officials held in contempt of Congress.

Tlaib — a member of “The Squad” along with fellow freshman Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley — said she and her fellow Dems were “trying to tread carefully” in this “uncharted territory.”

She then joked that anyone taken into custody could be held in Detroit.

“I will tell them they can hold all those people right here in Detroit. We’ll take care of them and make sure they show up to the committee hearings,” she said.
Work fast!!! :sonicthehedgehog: !!!

Edit- unless this right wing group faked this.

WH refusing to participate in the impeachment inquiry, sent some crazy long letter to Nancy Pelosi. George Conway said the letter is an impeachable offense, lol. In a fantasy world Kellyanne is one of the whistleblowers.

Russian Operative Said ‘We Made America Great’ After Trump’s Win

(Bloomberg) -- Kremlin-directed operatives opened champagne when Donald Trump won the presidency in 2016, according to a communication disclosed in a new Senate Intelligence Committee report outlining Russia’s sweeping social media efforts to help him win.

yep - refusing to cooperate with a congressional investigation is obstruction of justice and contempt of congress all on its own.

I know that we don't know what happens behind closed doors but there is no way this is a functional marriage.

To those doubting that Putin pulled Trump's little puppet strings to pull out of Syria.

This is happening in the next few hours:

@IgnatiusPost

...I'm also told that Turkish attack appears coordinated with the Russians. Russian-backed forces are mobilizing to invade the Kurdish area from the south — towards Tabqa and other spots. Meanwhile, ISIS is mobilizing sleeper cells in Raqqa and attacks have taken place tonight.

Agree on both counts.
Narcissistic socio /psychopaths never care who is harmed.

I'm torn between whether he is a socio or psycho path. Maybe someone here more schooled in the finer points of these things could pin that down.
Either way, they both share these traits

Regularly breaks or flouts the law - CHECK
Constantly lies and deceives others - CHECK
Is impulsive and doesn’t plan ahead - CHECK
Can be prone to fighting and aggressiveness - CHECK
Has little regard for the safety of others - CHECK
Irresponsible, can’t meet financial obligations - CHECK
Doesn’t feel remorse or guilt - CHECK

Narcissistic personality disorder compounded by his wealth and for as much as he claims to be against it, being of the bourgeois elite. Add that to being a man of little intelligence and you get the personification of the USA at its ugliest.

Trump is already seizing on a report that whistleblower #1 has some sort of ties to one of the Democratic candidate's campaign . Washington Post reported that. It's actually mentioned in the IG report.

Meanwhile Trump is STILL talking about Hillary and she trolls him.Of course do your job is a truly mild troll given Trump's daily disgraces.

I love how he capitalizes Uber and left. I didn't know E Warren worked at Uber, Trump's tweets are so educational. Learn something new every time I read one.
