Re: The political trial

The Congress could have ...or still could...go after Trump for Treason and only need a simple majority in both houses to convict. Instead we have some "committees" produced by Nancy Pelosi to "investigate". But one law maker from Mississippi is suing Trump because of an obscure l...

Re: The political trial

WASHINGTON (AP) — In his speech Saturday from the Senate floor, Sen. Mitch McConnell delivered a scalding denunciation of Donald Trump, calling him “morally responsible” for the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. But in his vote on Trump’s impeachment, McConnell said “not guilty” because he said a f...

Re: The political trial

As to the worst I'd add Mitch McConnell. He just said he would vote for acquittal apparently as a signal to the possibly wavering Republicans in the Senate who might vote based actually on the evidence.

Re: The political trial

Here is part of a late editorial. It concerns a new Alabama Senator who got elected on supporting Trump with no independent thought about any issue of his own other than he loved Trump and would do whatever Trump wished. https://www.al.com/news/2021/02/just-keep-talking-tommy-tuberville.html The mai...

The political trial

I watched, like a lot of other people, the first act of the political trial of Trump. Obviously the Republicans aren't going to impeach an already removed from the Oval office President and go along with preventing him from attempting to return in the future to stir the pot no matter what crimes he ...

Re: Mob at the Capitol

I agree he was guilty as charged. What I wonder is why Nancy Pelosi and company want to impeach him with only a week before Biden is inaugurated? It would never get off the ground until after Trump is no longer President. Obviously Pense isn't going to do the article 25 thing and remove him either i...

From the Associated Press: Trump: “If you don’t fight like hell, you’re not going to have a country anymore,” he said. “Let the weak ones get out,” he went on. ...

I agree that it is a slow motion thing to provide a stopgap prevention in the middle of a storm of new cases. One article I read lays the blame on the feds leaving distribution all up to the states.

In the case of the $2000 stimulus check instead of $600, the Republicans who let Trump off on the impeachment out of lock step loyalty don't want to give the general population a big windfall gift because it isn't "conservative". If the senate majority leader Mitch McConnell can stop a vot...

Thanks for pointing that out Vern. Strange how it was posted on an artillery 2/320th facebook site though. That would leave out a lot of FO team members who earned air medals.
