    Select Committee on January 6 Insurrection report...

    I pictured his lunging over the seat back and grabbing at the wheel. I never thought he was riding shotgun, or the struggle would have been much more protracted. I don't doubt there was an altercation of some sort. As I said before, if you think he acquiesced quietly, you don't understand Trump...

    LGBTQ Issues: Will We Choose Love and Acceptance or Hate and Oppression?

    Life beginning at conception is scientific idiocy. Like all this crap, it's religion, dressed up as pseudoscience...

    Better he should have played "Try to Remember" from "The Fantasticks"... :)

    There is all kinds of self-interest in Cipollone's being forthcoming...

    Select Committee on January 6 Insurrection report...

    He's not "Trump's attorney." That was Rudy. He was the counsel to the office of the presidency. It may not sound important to a layman and, certainly, Trump repeatedly confused it, but his duty of disclosure is shrunken to just exchanges between him and Trump on official business. It's much...

    Very good, and this is Cipollone's chance to extract himself as a member of the Trump/Meadows conspiracy and maybe even save his professional career. There are others who can be offered immunity, both by the committee and the DOJ, who can flesh out and corroborate. I think the dam just broke...

    From a Former Republican: How the Democrats Could Win

    All good analysis. One factor you neglected is depressed turnout in midterms. In midterms, the extreme partisans turn out. The members of the party in power and, particularly, independents, just yawn. The wild card happened yesterday. When the ripples die down, if they do, we'll know more...

    They really are a bunch of bad asses, aren't they? Storm a library and break up a kids' event...

    Select Committee on January 6 Insurrection report...

    Well, it's already happened. Cipollone has agreed to testify, via transcript, not in open hearing. I think he was waiting for the subpoena, for cover. Remember that he can claim executive privilege only for exchanges between him and the president...

    Select Committee on January 6 Insurrection report...

    She was very careful, coached, I'm sure, to delineate what she heard first hand and what she was told. As with John Dean, there never was any possibility of conviction, based on her testimony alone. OTOH, as I said above, much can be corroborated by people who have no reason to take the fifth...

    Yes, and Mulvaney just made an interesting point - Trump claims that his side wasn't being told. MM said that then he should send Meadows, Bannon and the rest to be put under oath and tell his side...

    Anyone who regularly throws plates of food against the wall or jerks the tablecloth from under table settings - and this can easily be verified - is perfectly capable of what she described. I don't believe for a moment that, when they told him they couldn't take him to the capitol, he said "OK...

    Select Committee on January 6 Insurrection report...

    She was very clear that the story was being told to her second hand, in front of one of the agents there, who may indeed have a credibility problem. She never represented it as truth or anything she knew first hand. If it turns out to be an exaggeration, I don't think it reflects on the rest of...
