Tuesday, February 26, 2019

Can Republicans drag this country down any further?

LOCK HIM UP! LOCK HIM UP!

That's called "threatening a witness", a felony I do believe.

Tweet of the day, IMO:

WitnessTestingHat @Popehat

Let me put it this way: if one of my clients made a statement to a witness like @mattgaetz did, I'd be telling them to board their dogs so they don't get shot when the arrest team shows up.

Part (the last) of cohen's opening statement, in open court, is to say that he would have no problem with his wife reaching out to matt gaetz's office, and they could present what proof they have of his marital infidelity, and....within 3 hrs of gaetz's tweet, he'd been contacted and furnished information that he'd be happy to share with mrs. gaetz.

no. America ended when we found out trump was caging thousands of kids and no one did, or has done, anything about it.

@itsJeffTiedrich
no one could have predicted that the party of Nazis, child molesters, wife beaters, pedophile wrestling coaches, election fraudsters, compromised Russian assets, blackout-drunk rapist judges and bone saw murder apologists would also be the party of witness-tampering congressmen

Alexandrite's point is spot on and WE ALL should be ashamed that we have allowed this situation to continue. The crime we are collectively committing against those children and their families is a crime against humanity and should be dealth with as such. I am ashamed to be an American today.

I, for one, forgive Big Matt. Fat, drug-addicted Gays say a lot of crazy stuff, as we have seen...

Republicans are truly terrified of Cohen's testimony, aren't they?

I thought his testimony would end up being a nothingburger, mainly because there are so many things that he is not allowed to talk about due to ongoing investigations. But conservatives are panicking so much, I am starting to think today might be pretty interesting.

Donald Trump, the well-known criminal, is going to be even more well-known after today.

I think the hope is that eventually Trump will be shown to be such a criminal that even people like JORDY will become ashamed of pimping for him.

Would you mind merging the 2 threads, please?

Answer; YOU, shilling and so badly for trump. I mean, REALLY. If you are going to BS, lie, and obfuscate, at least do it like an effing professional. You lie so badly, every day, that your rank amateurism is disgusting.
