More trouble for Lindsey: Dem super PAC to spend big on S.C. Senate race

Donald Trump’s mewling vestigial twin Lindsey Graham has been whining about how his Democratic Senate opponent, Jaime Harrison, is “killing” him financially. Just look at this nattering nabob of negativity: x Here's every time Lindsey Graham begged for money over the last few days and holy shit is he pathetic. pic.twitter.com/CzOTavhVkQ— Brian Tyler Cohen (@briantylercohen)…

Trump v. Biden: no comparison between town halls, IMPOTUS* in trouble

Trump’s town hall was a trainwreck, Thursday’s Biden town hall in Pennsylvania was a lot more like riding a bullet train. x It’s projection. pic.twitter.com/eUsP7jCkKr— Melissa Jo Peltier (@MelissaJPeltier) September 17, 2020 x Hiii Trump campaign friends. I tweeted live about a couple of false claims Biden made; my colleagues are working diligently on a…

DeJoy In Legal Trouble in North Carolina

Trump’s handpicked (with all the gross implications that word conjures up) Postmaster General Louis DeJoy has almost certainly broken a lot of federal laws, including conflict of interest laws, in his open plot to break the Postal Service. But there is growing evidence that he has also broken North Carolina campaign finance laws — and…

Right Track/Wrong Track Shows Trump in Big Trouble

Political Wire posted this article today (behind a paywall): The Dow Jones Indicator of American Politics. It’s based on a report from Charlie Cook —  Right Direction/Wrong Track Numbers Tell the Story of the Election — and it shows Trump in deep trouble. Cook looked at the last 40 years and found that, when an…

SCOTUS decision could spell trouble for Trump in rape case

Ruh-roh. I’m no lawyer — partly because I enjoy writing books and blogs more than studying the law, and partly because, well, weed — but I can read and comprehend a story about Trump’s jowly buttocks landing squarely in the fondue pot. Looks like one of the unintended consequences of the recent 7-2 Supreme Court decision…

the Three Amigos plus Rudy, are now in more trouble after the Vindman testimony

Rudy and the “three amigos” (Volker, Sondland, Perry) seem now more exposed after the building depositions that destroyed GOP process objections. And then there’s Pence who will be revealed to know more, as well as Mulvaney. NEW: Vindman’s testimony appears to contradict Rick Perry's ardent denials that he ever heard the Bidens discussed as part of…

RWNJs are having trouble defending Individual-1 in the #Trumpeachment

Other than a rhetorical diversion into the use of “lynching”, Lindsey Graham is one of a few Senate Republicans unencumbered by the possibility of sitting as an impeachment juror. RWNJ pundits have taken to attacking Graham to fill the space of media reaction and in the absence of many Trump defenders in the Senate. Other…

shaky ground under that bus: Mick Mulvaney is in trouble

More likely, if Mulvaney’s approval was necessary to move digital items like phone call memos to the so-called secret server, he’ll be in much bigger trouble than not having a response strategy for the release of the Ukraine summary of 25 July. Cover-ups are always hard to manage once a portion of inculpatory information gets out. Mick…
