for the amazing Rep. Jamie Raskin.

Hell...all the House Managers.

And hell - all the staff and employees of the Capitol - police, legislative staff, cafeteria and janitorial staff.

I am inspired and uplifted by their competence, patriotism, service.

Impeachment trial:

Relieved to see house managers bringing up drumpf's 2015 incitements to violence at his rallies.

This has been PROGRAMMING of long duration.

He didn't NEED to tell the Jan. 6 rioters what his expectations were; he'd been grooming them since at least 2015.

In fact, I believe this is the strategy: plausible deniability. That is, some reptilian, sociopathic, narcissistic awareness of the danger TO HIMSELF in usinh incendiary words of physical violence immediately precipitory to the 1/6 attack. He didn't need to. Like Michael Cohen said .... his supporters and sycophants know what he means. Why? He'd been grooming them, programming them, for years ...

The impeachment - even if no conviction, as expected...

Rs will NEVER EVER EVER get the stink off themselves!

I love that Dems are just hitting this hard as can be.

And each one of the Managers is impeccable!

I had hardly even heard of Rep. Stacey Plasket before. Where has she been all my life?!

Impeachment trial:

I do wish they would also show clips from drumpf's early rallies - his calls to actual physical violence!

I haven't watched every minute, so may have been said. I would think Castro or Swalwell's presentation would have included it.

I think I figured out their strategy...

bore everyone to death so they stop watching!

Haha "former President t****"

Did ya hear it from orange asshole's lawyer?!

First time I've heard anyone on his team say this.

I'm sure it's strategic...
