I wish you all good luck and goodbye.

I am a bit disheartened by the attacks on post that are not in lock-step with the general views of the members. I find that the effective censorship of dissenting opinions to be neither Democratic nor progressive. To equate unpopular views with spouting right-wing trolling just does not set well. While, I realize that my exit will not break a lot of hearts, I want you to know that the person who left was, and will remain a life-long yellow dog Democrat who is leaving over perceived intolerance by his fellow liberals.

I have certainly enjoyed my time here and some of the lively discussions, and wish the forum well.

A couple of musings on today's hearings

The hearing make it seem nearly indisputably clear that Trump knew that the claims he was making were false. (I never doubted that for a moment) It is either that, or he is totally batshit crazy. (which I don't believe) Of course, without his recorded words, or a reliable witness to quote Trump admitting that it was all a lie about a lie. I don't know how his state of mind could be proved.

He encouraged his attorneys to file all of the BS law suits. Wouldn't you think that he would be personally financially responsible for costs of all of the investigations, court time etc. that he wasted in his fraudulent fund raising scheme? That might be real money even for Trump.

I wonder how long it will take for one of his people that he defrauded to decide to sue? How soon would that become a class action? (Makes me wish I had sent him a Benjamin.) Ambulance chasers all over the country will soon be contacting people who donated after the elections to "help fight the rigged election." And yet, he continues to tour with the same lies and the same kinds of fundraising. Apparently he can't smell the handwriting on the walls.

Like Capone, it may not be his biggest fraud that finally get him, but the fundraising fraud.

Watching the videos, I am waiting for the claims of right wingers that, "They cherry picked the depositions and only took the bad stuff." It is coming, wait for it.

It appears to me that Rudy needs to be losing a lot more than his law licenses...He already lost his mind now he needs to lose some freedom. One one of the politically important days in his legal career, he shows up tanked and delivered drunken advice that Trump embraced. I suspect that if he is ever charged he will plea that he is incompetent to stand trial, and that that would be the closest that he has come to truth since 9-11.

I find that Barr, as much as I despise him, is driving the biggest stakes in Trumps (lack of) heart. I love it.

All of our esteemed Republicans in the House and Senate, who were certainly aware of the truth, decided to stand back, ignore the criminality, or either actively or passively support the big lie, even after the 6th. None of them are fit to be an elected dog catcher.

I am laying in pop corn and Ju-Jus for the next one. You have to believe that when the air the final one, it will, in fact, blow the roof off.

I believe, after watching Jarad, Ivanka, giving testimony, that if pushed hard, with their futures at stake that they would throw bid daddy under the bus in a heartbeat. Barbie looked like a deer caught in the headlights.

The Justice dept. has access to all of this information, and probably a hell of a lot more. It is time for them to "LOCK HIM UP"
Or admit that they don't intend to, in spite of the evidence. Then the next thing to do is address the "pardons" as being part of the criminal conspiracy and therefore invalid.

All of the information about all of the debunked fake claims has been documented so well that I do not see how they could be attacked by Trump's defense team any better in the future than in the past.

Trump just may have simply overplayed his hand!

What does our future look like

If Trump and his criminal gang escape the attempted coup with impunity?
