When you look @ Jay Sekulow you're looking @ a Jesus scamming crook. "Jews for Jesus"

Sekulow and his family used the money they scammed from people who couldn't really afford to
donate for private jets, vacation homes, huge paydays, real estate, and sweetheart loans.

Trump lawyer's firm steered millions in donations to family members, files show

Documents obtained by the Guardian reveal Jay Sekulow approved plans to push people to give to his Christian nonprofit, which then paid big sums to his family

Documents obtained by the Guardian show Sekulow that month approved plans to push poor and jobless people to donate money to his Christian nonprofit, which since 2000 has steered more than $60m to Sekulow, his family and their businesses.

Telemarketers for the nonprofit, Christian Advocates Serving Evangelism (Case), were instructed in contracts signed by Sekulow to urge people who pleaded poverty or said they were out of work to dig deep for a “sacrificial gift”.

“I can certainly understand how that would make it difficult for you to share a gift like that right now,” they told retirees who said they were on fixed incomes and had “no extra money” – before asking if they could spare “even $20 within the next three weeks”.

Thank you Adam Schiff thread

I was driving around in my F-150 "pick em up" Truck and listening to Chairmen Schiff's
opening statement and I was pleased about what a smart classy guy he is and how he
stated time after time that the evidence was and is there to remove Trump from office.


The moral weight of history is on Adam Schiff's side. Now the GOP Senators might vote to
let Trump off on his crimes but history and the American voters are going to be a ruthless
judge to their actions and to them personally @ the ballot box.

Daily Kos: McConnell readies nuclear option for shielding Senate trial from public view

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is taking extraordinary steps to keep what's sure to be a sticky impeachment trial for GOP senators out of the public eye. He's already roped off certain areas to pen up reporters so they can't wander the halls and ask the very questions GOP senators are loath to answer. Journalists will also pass through a newly added metal detector before taking their media seats in the chamber in case they try to "bug the chamber with surveillance equipment," reports the Washington Post. It's all under the guise of "security" that's supposedly intended to protect senators, but credentialed reporters have effectively been designated a security threat.

Naturally, no digital devices such as cell phones or computers or cameras will be allowed in the Senate chamber to record the historical spectacle in real-time. That's standard practice in both the upper and lower chambers, but the House suspended the rule during the impeachment proceedings so journalists could better capture the moment.

But McConnell and his caucus could also simply kill the only camera allowed in the chamber during some of the most important parts of the trial. As the New York Times writes, "Lawmakers could pull the C-Span plug and go into closed session at critical moments of debate over the conduct of the trial and the fate of the president."

It's a procedure that was sometimes employed during the impeachment trial of President Bill Clinton, but the circumstances of that trial were quite different. While Senate Republicans controlled the chamber, they weren't in any position to abuse their power or further anger the public as Clinton's approval had already soared and the GOP was taking a political beating. In addition, Republicans didn’t gain anything by shielding Clinton from the negative publicity that would naturally arise from a trial they were constitutionally required to hold in the view of many legal scholars.

Trump to India .... It is not like you've got China on your border

"It's not like you've got China on your border," the authors quoted Trump as telling Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi during a meeting between the two leaders.

CNN tonight Alan Dershowitz has lost it .... BTW I am not a lawyer

He keeps saying that he needs to make the argument against the impeachment of
Trump in front of the Senate but isn't that horse already out of the barn? Trump has
been impeached and no argument is going to change that.

DU help please didn't Trump write a letter to Lev Parnas thinking him for his help in 2018?

thanx

Morning Joe, "And Russia paid for all of this."

Bottom Line.

Dmytro Firtash was paying for all this Ukraine "rat fucking" of our democracy and he was
using Russian money which must have been approved of by Vlad Putin.

Nancy P picks out music "to walk the articles" of impeachment over to the senate.
