Romney was also very publicly shamed by Trump. We all remember that photo of the two of them having dinner. I've always thought that he would wait in the wings, then come to pick up the pieces with the usual "conservatism isn't wrong, DJT was not a conservative" shit they ram down our throats. And even so, he'd still be 1000x better than Trump.

Dershowitz is just starting. He just said he voted for Hillary. Thanks for sharing.

Mr. "I got a massage, fully clothed, by some old hag at Jeffrey Epstein's house" should really slink away in shame forever.

Right?

The final reckoning or this administration is going to be so much worse than it appears now.

Think about that one.

It's why John Bolton's testimony is crucial. He's a conservative rock star. The spinning of all of these fucking Republicans who have gone against Trump into members of the deep state has been laughably obscene - but that's near impossible with Bolton.

If Bolton gets up there and burns the house down, it gives the GOP an out. Doesn't mean they take it... but it gives some of them the opportunity to go back home and say "I mean I didn't want to, but hey, John Bolton!"

It's kinda like Mueller, if Mueller would have had the balls to actually say the thing that his report said in a way that anyone without a law degree or hundreds of hours of reading time could actually understand.

Lol, well he's never met a media spotlight that he didn't love. He's trying to argue that even the Bolton stuff, if true, doesn't rise to the level of an impeachable offense. It's just insane to me.

Trump actually claimed yesterday that he "never said anything" to Bolton. Bolton knows about all of it, and I want to hear it from him as a witness. These spineless Republicans should want to hear it too.

It’s smart of John Bolton to hide evidence in a place where the president will never be able to find it - a book.

For any of these assholes to complain about "the elite" is absurd. For Ivanka to is simply so fucking stupid that it boggles the mind.

As a woman it's tough to put into words how troubling the "laughter in the room" is. Given the fact that Trump is surrounded by men. Yes men.


Jim Acosta
@Acosta

Trump to Pompeo on his treatment of NPR reporter: “I think you did a good job on her.” (Laughter in room)

i don't think anyone here is saying that.

But if a swath of Bernie supporters are going to "sit it out" if he is not the Dems nominee then screw them, too!
Progressive ideas include a more equal playing field, more inclusion, good health care for all, hopefully way less racism, sexism, pro immigration, being pro LGBTQI, safety in the workplace, pro environment, and dealing with climate change and renewables, etc

Not adding in their votes will help drumph win, cause even further backsliding.

I hope so! He and Biden should be having mock debates w "trump".

One of my dreams is to have Warren at the podium and trumph trying that stalkerish walking behind her (like he did w Hillary), and her whipping around and saying "get the heck (or hell) away from me!".

It's likely just a delay of the inevitable, but it does set up the scenario where the GOP has to hang themselves by dismissing the testimony of a direct witness who also happened to be as republican as they come.

Dismissing all of the law enforcement conservatives like Mueller and Comey is doable because law enforcement, by their nature, will inevitably be more non partisan. Bolton's a moustachioed horse of a different color.

WNYC's Brian Lehrer had a great show today (and he has a daily impeachment podcast, too). He had on Nate Silver, and later Paul Krugman. Oh, and before them he had justice columnist from The Nation, and Exec Ed AboveTheLaw.com Ellie Nastal who had a lucid and funny talk back to the Republican's Impeachment presentation of yesterday (Mon).

Dershowitz looks totally unhinged on CNN. Why do they keep having him on?
