HPSCI members can't under rules of comity, call out Nunes for his Lev Parnas tour of Europe, but they could enter the article into the congressional record to tie Parnas' name to Nunes.

3. Devin and Donald are like bank robbers who are pissed off @ the cops for catching them.

Just how big is this "thing?" So the half baked conspiracy stuff that Devin has been spouting
not only comes from Putin but a Ukrainian mobster too.

But in the end what about Hillary's emails?

By calling out Democrats with everything he says during these hearings?

15. Republicans are allowed to flaunt rules.

This privilege doesn't extend to Democrats.

11. Can we put up placards in hearing room..just as repubs have?

...placed posters in prominent places where cameras are focused...ours can be subliminal..say pic of puppets; a cow; clowns...of even a puppet pin on a congress person; things like that. .I know, i know--we dems aren't into chicanery...

Yet, you [roland99] noted, it would make your day...damn right, mine too! Just as Rep. Speier shot back five pinnochios to odious liar WH when during impeachment hearing yesterday some gop propagandist said that someone on our side had 3 pinnochios..she said some thats nothingcomapred to trumps dauly 5 pinnochios, ..so hilarious. Little thngs like that make my day, especially in a public setting, where it becomes public record. [See video at link] ps. Thanks for post.

18. Rules of comity? So are these rules that the GOP by and large follows? That is,

are they rules executed via the house parliamentarian of are they just rules that members voluntarily follow?
