House impeachment managers: We told you dumb*sses he was corrupt

(The headline is my own paraphrase, in case that wasn’t clear.) The House managers in Donald Trump’s impeachment trial — Adam Schiff, Jerrold Nadler, Zoe Lofgren, Hakeem Jeffries, Val Demings, Sylvia Garcia, and Jason Crow — just wrote an op-ed for The Washington Post in which they point out that Trump is just as lawless and corrupt…

Devin Nunes can't stop talking about nude Trump photos

Here’s a fun little drinking game. Every time Devin Nunes mentions nude pictures of Trump, drink … Drano. And it wouldn’t hurt to gouge your eyes out with the kitchen implement of your choice. For the record, this isn’t the first time Nunes has obsessed over Trump nudies, and it almost certainly won’t be the last: Devin…

It Ends As It Began. But The Middle Is What Matters

The impeachment trial of Donald Trump is ending exactly the way that it began. The Trump defense began the day, and their arguments were the same pathetic, thin gruel that they led off with. They blamed the Democrats for a purely partisan impeachment, claimed that they failed to prove their case, and trotted out a…

I Think Senate Democrats Need To Call Republican Bluff On Impeachment Witnesses.

Chuck “I’m no freakin’ TV referee” Todd stated that Senate Democrats and Republican each have a list of impeachment witnesses that are based upon the old MAD (mutually assured destruction) rule with nuclear weapons.  Democrats want Bolton and Mulvaney and who knows else that has dirt on Trump to testify, and Republicans have a wishlist of witnesses…

Check out this unintentionally hilarious Donald Trump tweet

I suppose it’s important to project confidence when your bowels are spilling out on the abattoir floor, but this tweet really makes me wonder what channel Donald Trump is watching. And on what planet. (I assume he’s talking about the impeachment hearings and not a Three Stooges short.) x If this were a prizefight, they’d…

Trump is losing his damn mind over the whistleblower. Again

Lordy, lordy, look who’s at it again: His lies were made in perhaps the most blatant and sinister manner ever seen in the great Chamber. He wrote down and read terrible things, then said it was from the mouth of the President of the United States. I want Schiff questioned at the highest level for…

Adam Schiff expects whistleblower to testify 'very soon'

If my obnoxious next-door neighbor ever improperly solicits help from Vladimir Putin or the president of Ukraine, I want Adam Schiff to bring the hammer down on him. As it is, he just uses power tools at 8 a.m. on a Saturday. But maybe Schiff can look into that as well, when he’s done with…

Adam Schiff: The whistleblower has agreed to testify — as soon as this week

Well, that escalated quickly: x We have been informed by the whistleblower’s counsel that their client would like to speak to our committee and has requested guidance from the Acting DNI as to how to do so. We‘re in touch with counsel and look forward to the whistleblower’s testimony as soon as this week. —…

Pelosi Releases Statement About Intelligence Whistleblower Complaint.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi has released a statement about the intelligence whisteblower complaint.  The third paragraph is probably the most important part of the statement: “The Administration’s blocking of Acting DNI Joseph Maguire from providing Congress with the whistleblower complaint violates the federal statute, which unequivocally states that the DNI ‘shall’ provide Congress this information.  If…
