Will Merrick Garland release the FULL unredacted Mueller Report?

I haven't heard anyone mention this at all on TV. Bill Barr apparently hid the juicy parts of the Mueller Report to save Trump's ass. I wonder if that's why Graham held up the Garland nomination so that they could get this impeachment trial over before he becomes Attorney General and release the full report. Other than national security/intelligence names, secrets, etc., there is no reason to keep this from the public.

Pres. Biden needs to offer Sen. Toomey (R-PA) a plum ambassadorship

maybe to the UK or France. He's retiring anyway in 2022. This would allow us to get to 51 votes, which does make a huge difference. Gov. Wolf would be able to appoint his replacement.

I don't think the GOP congressmen will be investigated until AFTER Jan. 20th...

No way the FBI announces that members of the House will be under investigation for helping the rioters until Trump is out of office cause otherwise he would just pardon them.

Is Sen. Tammy Duckworth, Elizabeth Warren, et al, going to sink Lloyd Austin's nomination?

As an African-American, I'm deeply concerned about the blowback that Biden's defense pick is getting from the most liberal Dems in Congress all because of the waiver. They are saying they won't approve the waiver. Is there any danger that he won't get the waiver to become the Pentagon chief?

Frankly, I'm outraged. I know that they want to stay consistent, but this is politically bad. How is Tammy Duckworth going to go to Illinois and look at black voters in the eye in Chicago and be proud that she helped deep six Biden's choice to be the first ever African-American to be defense secretary? If they have issues with the waiver, then don't show up and vote like Republicans do on tough votes. There is nothing good that can come out of what they're attempting. Black voters have a long memory and we won't allow Democratic politicians to vote against a very qualified African-American patriot and get away with it, even if he's confirmed in the end.

Biden considering Sen. Angus King for DNI Chief

I don't like Biden plucking any senators at all, but Maine does have a Democratic governor. But not sure I'm trusting special elections right now and Maine isn't exactly the most trustworthy state.

The ONLY way this makes sense to me is if Sen. King has maybe relayed to Biden that he doesn't plan on running for re-election, so it'll be easier for the Dems to run with a Dem already in the seat, rather than a full out open seat.

What's Biden going to do about Joe Manchin in a 50/50 Senate?

Assuming we win the GA runoffs. Biden's back-slapping, good ol' boy politicking will have to pay in spades. Manchin will be the king maker in the Senate and Joe will need to shower him with praise, a few beers, and overnights at the White House Talk about how great and beautiful the state of West Virginia is. Give him anything he wants as far as federal dollars. Get Jill to befriend his wife. I think that should probably keep him on board for most stuff, outside of climate change related bills.

It's now clear how we win elections...a moderate face with left policies

And that's how Biden has been able to pull thing off. I don't foresee in the future that our party will nominate anyone that calls themselves a Democratic socialist. They may be able to drum up big support in NYC, LA, Seattle, etc, but that's not going to win 270 EV's.

It's pretty obvious that we have to have a candidate that appeals to the Rust Belt states and that also includes drumming up African American voters in their urban cores. Also we need to do better with Latinos and concentrate more on the Latinos in the southwest. Fuck Florida. That's our path from here on out. But any candidate from here on out, HAS to win surburbia too and revolutionary/socialist language won't cut it. Biden wouldn't have won MI and PA without the suburbs breaking for him.

I haven't slept much in 3 days

Please someone tell me this ends tonight? I can't take anymore. Does anyone know if PA will drop tonight? I thought they would, but it's already 8:30pm and nothing is moving.

**Fox News preparing to call it for Biden tonight**

Just saw this on TPM. Fox News is prepping to call NV for Biden should it go like they expect. They have already called AZ for Biden. They will be the first network to declare Joseph R. Biden the 46th President of the United States!

Can someone tell me about GA?

I don't hear any talk about it. Can Biden win it or not?
