i've been watching the people vs oj simpson this week and it's pretty interesting to see some of the parallels between that case and this impeachment trial play out in real time.

in the sense that the prosecutors of a case that really seemed like it just had to be officially proven at the start allowed enough reasonable doubt to creep in that an obviously guilty defendant ends up not really facing justice.

This isn’t a joke. Win, and he’s setting him and his family up to keep the presidency for years

Lose, and he isn’t going to leave...not without a fight

I'm sure it's a complete coincidence that the aid was frozen 90 minutes after that perfect call.

It would have been even shorter but Trump's hamberders were brought to him by the WH chef.

Fascinating.

Quote:

Former President Obama has reportedly been vouching for Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) to wealthy donors in an attempt to "rally the troops."

Obama, The Hill reports, has in recent months "gone to bat" for the Democratic presidential candidate to "donors reluctant to support her given her knocks on Wall Street and the wealthy," describing her behind the scenes as a capable contender and encouraging them to support her if she's the nominee.

"He obviously thinks she's very smart," a Democratic donor said. "He thinks her policy ideas matter. And I think he sees her running the campaign with the most depth."

Obama has not offered any 2020 endorsement and has made clear he'll stay out of the Democratic primary. Still, the Hill reports that those around Obama say he's concerned Democrats in financial services will, per one ally, "have an issue" with Warren as the nominee, hence his attempt to "rally the troops." One Obama source noted, however, he would do the same for any one of the 2020 Democrats.

This comes after a report that Obama in 2015 said that if voters rallied behind Warren, who helped set up the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in his administration, it would be a "repudiation" of his economic policies. It also comes after a September report on the "far more combative relationship" between Warren and the Obama administration "than she usually discusses on the campaign trail."

The difference between GOP and Dem is that GOP do whatever it takes to win.

If it means aligning with Russia, so be it.

That was interesting, Irving.

Meanwhile, House may yet add another impeachment article, IF (if i have this right) something related to getting McGhan's testomony.

Which got LG all up and bothered "ths is like an open bar tab!".

Speaking of that .....

Can ou spell K-e-n S-t-a-r-r, Lindsey, hmmmmmm?!?
