Plus: Revisiting the Flight 93 election
Re Trump and Miranda rights, to paraphrase Shrek, he has the RIGHT to remain silent, he just lacks the ability to do so.
Jack Smith is in the pocket...he projects confidence because he’s done his homework and he holds all the cards!
If the special counsel indicts President Trump in Washington, D.C. for anything related to January 6th, that will be considered a major outrage by Republicans, because you could convict any Republican of anything in Washington, D.C.”
Only if you committed CRIMES, Senator Graham.
I admit that at this moment, that does seem to be a lot of Republicans but just because you and Josh Hawley and Chuck Grassley et al are members of a seditious conspiracy, that doesn't mean all Republicans are.
There should be a way to ignore people on this platform. WAPO has it in their comment section. It can’t be that hard.
What is wrong with TFG? Why can’t he just keep his mouth shut and his fingers off the keys/screen? He seems crazier by the minute. His supporters actually like this? Wait…never mind…
Enjoy Asheville, it is my home town and I live there now. I happen to be in Italy as I write. I appreciate your work. And listen to your podcast frequently. It helps me stay sane in this insane world.
Michael Anton is a grotesque grifter pretending to be an intellectual.
I was very happy to read the reports of the unwavering “intense stare” that Jack Smith kept fixed on Twaitor Twump. This extraordinarily persistent and committed prosecutor has his man in his sights, and intends to complete his mission. I’ll bet it scared the trembling toddler no end!
I heard that the MAGA congresscriters held a "hearing" about Jan 6 that was essentially a seditionist love fest celebrating the patriots who were just "visiting " the Capitol.
All the usual suspects were there and while watching the news report the thought crossed my mind MTG, Gaetz, Gosar, et al should possibly wait until all the indictments have been announced before they start to rock'n'roll like they are untouchable.
". . .[S]ome senior Republicans are preparing to attack any prosecution of Trump for his schemes to block the peaceful transfer of power. . . . ." No wonder that group includes the hysterically frightened Graham; for if an ex-president can be indicted for attempting to overthrow the 2020 election, clearly so can a mere senator (who also made an unfortunate phone call to Georgia).
Huge fan and hope that you enjoy our mountains, we’re about 46 miles west of Asheville in Sylva. Let us know if you ever need a local brewery tour.
loved 'metaphor alert'
many thanks for everything
by the way
So, Rudy, dead men tell no tales, eh???
tRump is an imposter. He’s vulnerable to anything or anyone who stands up to him and won’t back down.
So Knowels want to go back to 1220, to when there were no guns, no elections, no internet, a flat earth. Please God, grant him his wish.
Excellent work by Sarah Longwell, who moderated an apparent PBS-sponsored focus group of...uh...very fine people. Sarah displayed discipline and grace while interacting with the very fine (but insufficiently well informed) people. Well done Sarah! I don't know how Sarah manages to remain in moderator-mode and not better inform inform the people.
