If we can get our hands free to type from the constant facepalming, we should be able to post on this topic.

Continuation of the previous thread:

$1.6 billion that could have been spent elsewhere - like healthcare, education, the aged, disability, the list goes on - but it has been put aside for a big wall. Sad

#Trump faces first article of impeachment: What to know about the process.

AcrossthePond55 · 13/07/2017 01:35

Aaaannnndddd away we goooooo!

Per NBC news on TV tonight: Trump says he 'knew nothing' about Junior's meeting with the Russians until 'a couple of days ago'.

And I've got a bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell the person who believes that steaming pile!!!!

AcrossthePond55 · 13/07/2017 01:43

Claws I think the article of impeachment that has been filed is dead in the water. They can file and file and file, but as long as the GOP 'owns' the House it'll never pass. And the GOP has a 46 seat majority. Even Dems are distancing themselves at this point because most of them believe there's so little chance for impeachment with the House as it is. I think they're laying low and gathering evidence hoping for 2018 mid-terms to tip the House majority the other way.

It's a nice gesture. But that's all it is.

TheClaws · 13/07/2017 01:46

What do you mean, Across? Doesn't he say "Believe me," all the time? And "Don't worry." So I absolutely believe he knew nothing about that meeting with the Russian lawyer and about Russians and is there a country called Russia? Where's that? Wink

TheClaws · 13/07/2017 01:48

You're probably right about the impeachment articles, Across - sadly - I was just tickled to see 'impeachment' on a Fox tweet!

AcrossthePond55 · 13/07/2017 01:51

Claws, about that bridge I'm selling........Grin

Yes it is nice to see the words 'impeachment filed' and Trump in the same sentence. Sigh. Hopefully someday it'll be something we can really believe.

Sessions just abruptly dismissed a Russian money laundering case. Guess who the lawyer was - Veselnitskaya!

House Democrats want to know why a major Russian money laundering case was abruptly 'dismissed'

Of note too: Preet Bharara was prosecuting this case before he suddenly was fired.

I've just watched a clip of Trump being interviewed by the 'Christian Broadcasting Network'. This is the only place in media who I presume won't ask him a tricky question and given the credentials of the interviewer, a very good reason why religion and politics should never mix.

Everything is reduced to banal and juvenile. Trump's excuse is "Putin prefers Hillary not me". That's a new one! Pathetic

All of this stuff is great & it definitely feels like the mood is shifting, but are we definitely stuck until the 2018 midterms? Surely there's only so long the GOP can ignore all this without wider reputationsl damage?

I think that point has passed illegitimate. The republicans are screwed. Once this is done they will be out for a long, long time. I suspect this is the real reason they are hanging on. When you suddenly realise you are riding the tiger it can seem an easier option to just stay where you are and pray.

I don't know if it was on this thread, but someone mused that the tipping point for the GOP will be when their legislative attempts fail, at which point they have no use for trump and will be quick to abandon him.

When will they realise it is a bad idea to hold up a piece of paper?

Meme heaven.

Roussette · 13/07/2017 08:12

Oh yes lion can't wait for the rewriting of that!

illegitimateMortificadospawn · 13/07/2017 08:14

I would be editing Kelly Anne's paper to say something like: "Help! Being held against my will in the Trump compound. Please send in ATF agents to release me."
