Pardons a guilty felon before sentencing? Why the silence from the GOP?

1000s of ethics violations? Why the silence from the GOP?
Nepotism? Cronyism? Corruption, Possible treason? Why the silence from the GOP?



Hold the GOP accountable. Media? Do the the right thing.

2. The GOP had better figure out who's side they are on.

TICK>>>TICK>>>TICK>>> every moment they waste on the sidelines as witness to the destruction of the Republic a nd the Rule of Law brings them closer to their own downfall.

2018 will be their Waterloo. If the Republic still exists... that is... if elections actually take place.

"We the People" are going to have to solve this crisis. in the words of Barack Obama, "We are the ones we've been waiting for."

We have to stop looking to institutions for help in solving the problem of 45. The cavalry is NOT coming. WE are the cavalry.

3. Not many of the 'CON party

aren't just as guilty of something

they're all a bunch of crooks. Evidenced by their quest to tear down any and all things that are good for the common man and stacking the deck for the rich. Bastards all of them

Our Dems try to help us regular folks, day in and day out. Thats what we as a party try to do, pukes on the other hand not so much

6. The democratic politicians

should stop waiting for the gop to find their decency, honesty and conscience. Not gonna happen. They are corrupt slimy bastards, out for themselves and their rich donors. I keep wondering if McCain, now that he has nothing to lose, will find his spine, speak up. He could expose a lot of filth from the gop. Does anyone think he is man enough to do that, for the good of this country? Maybe he is in the slime too deep.

4. The media has been focusing more on getting the GOP reps

to admit on the record that 45 is crazy. They noticeably increased the pressure this past week. Perhaps they took Carl Bernstein's suggestion seriously. The GOP will do NOTHING, not even impeach him, if it benefits them ($ and power).

They have to keep the pressure on them and continue to increase it.

Meanwhile WE need to pressure the GOP too like we did with the ACA repeal only bigger, better, and stronger.

Boycotts are another way WE can force them to cave, after all $$$$$ is what drives them. Boycott companies and products that support the GOP agenda.

RESIST! Peace.

5. Very little has happened since January that outraged me more.

Even though it was years too late, and hundreds, if not thousands of lives needlessly ruined, at least the POS was going to get his comeuppance and do some jail time. Now, his victims and society in general don't even get that.

If this maladministration lasts much longer, the national anthem is going to be changed to The Banana Boat song.

13. That's why Trump dumped this on a Fri in the middle of a hurricane.

This way the GOPers can say they were just worried sick and too busy praying to Jesus for the people of Texas or directing their own rescue efforts in that regard.

Cowards.

I wonder what else it will take for them to take action against him? That's why when people say Pence would be just as bad I say no, Pence wouldn't have done something this extreme, f.i.

14. Dear John McCain

Your "outrage" that this pardon "undermines" the Orange Buffoon's "claim for the respect for the rule of law" is WORTHLESS unless you do something about it.

MAKE HIM abide by the rule of law or get his ugly racist lawless ass out of there.

18. The media will never hold the GOP accountable...

...because if the GOP is guilty, so is the media--for normalizing a neo-fascist party. This makes them complicit. They will literally see the country go fascist, rather than admit their own role in permitting this to happen...
