Did Trump conspire with his four aides to defy the subpoenas?

Since they are not yet charged with any crime, I suppose it would not be illegal?

Perhaps someone could clarify that?

They are showing their cards. They are going to fight it our in the courts. They believe they can obstruct and delay until after the midterms next year, and when they win back both houses of Congress, they will end all investigations.

Is that the plan?

Bill Barr corrupted the Justice Department.

He permitted people to ignore subpoenas from Congress and the rule of law in general. The lawbreakers knew they would not be prosecuted so long as Bill Barr was the Attorney General.

Unfortunately, they still believe that. The Justice Department is broken. They have not regained the legitimacy they lost during the last five years. People are still ignoring subpoenas. They do not believe anyone will hold them accountable. They are scofflaws.

How does the DOJ regain its legitimacy? They have to show that they are not a paper tiger. They need to show their teeth.

They cannot permit criminals to ignore subpoenas if they are to have any credibility at all. They must act.

Where are the leaders in the Republican Party that will defend democracy?

They fall in behind McConnell and Trump in lockstep, oblivious that they have any responsibility to the oath they took to defend our Constitution.

They are like lemmings marching to the edge of the cliff with their eyes closed. Surely nothing bad will happen if they just remain silent?

Their job is to oppose "government" at all levels. No government is the best government, in their eyes. If anything bad happens, then the Democrats will fix it. If they don't fix it, we will blame them in the next election.

That is all that matters.

Republican leadership is an oxymoron.

Re: The discussion between Lawrence O'Donnell and Daniel Goldman

It was quite interesting.

They were discussing Goldman's theory that Trump's lawyers would file a lawsuit preventing the four subpoenaed witnesses that were closely connected to Donald Trump. It is under the claim of "executive privilege".

Lawrence asked Goldman what would happen if they defy the subpoenas?

One of them mentioned that it would go to the DOJ and they would make the decision whether or not to charge the named individuals?

This would happen this Thursday, if the documents are not turned over.

There is nothing they like better than a good ol' court fight.

There's more than a shadow of deceit in their machinations.

Should the Select Committee subpoena Donald Trump?

Why not?

Let the courts decide if he has to respond to a subpoena. There is little doubt but that he would fight it every inch of the way. But, let him. Make the courts make the decision. We will find out once and for all if "no one is above the law".

If nothing else, it would keep him busy.

On this date in 1966, I was on my way to basic training at Fort Campbell, KY....

I remember walking out of that dark hollow on an October 4th morning of 1966 to catch a bus that would take a bunch of us to Fort Campbell, Kentucky. I was then 19 years old and a man, whether I was ready or not?

The next morning -- still in our civilian clothes -- we played touch football as we anticipated our progression from a "recruit" to a "private" in the U.S. Army. Off in the distance, I could hear Loretta Lynn's voice coming from the nearby EM Club -- singing something about Uncle Sam being a "busy man" and sending her man to "Viet Nam". It all sounded like a very distant drum.

Is Facebook too big to manage?

Should it be regulated?

Should international users be on the same server as American users? Doesn't that open the gate to misinformation, hacking, and other problems?

Should Instagram, Messenger, and other holdings be separated from Facebook?

They are off-line as of last report. All their companies are down also.

Which Side Are You On

Can you imagine if Trump gets his Twitter account re-instated?

The incitement of January 6th will look like a church picnic. He would create a climate of violence all across this land. He is a threat to our society.

I have a feeling that people know that, yet they do nothing about it....except wait.

Wait until it is not possible to wait anymore. The civil war has begun. The truth has been demolished. A brutal and violent dictator has taken over our country.

Then people will say, why didn't they do something?
