It’s All in #MoscowMitch’s Shell Now

Moscow Mitch
(H/T Raw Story via Skinny Dennis)

 “NBC NIGHTLY NEWS,” Lester Holt open: “Breaking news tonight, the high-stakes new impeachment showdown. House Democrats moving their inquiry to a critical new phase. Three legal experts say Trump committed impeachable offenses with his conduct toward Ukraine. … The lone witness for Republicans denouncing the evidence as wafer thin.”

 “CBS EVENING NEWS,” Norah O’Donnell open: “Breaking news tonight, constitutional clash. Partisan anger spills out as House Judiciary hearings on impeaching the president begin. Law professors giving lawmakers a crash course in the Constitution.”

 ABC’S “WORLD NEWS TONIGHT,” David Muir open: “Tonight, the historic showdown on Capitol Hill, the impeachment inquiry takes a dramatic new turn today, the witnesses constitutional law scholars, they’re asked was the president’s conduct impeachable, they do not hold back, and the scholar who said the Democrats are rushing this. And the moment one witness brings up the president’s youngest son — did she cross the line?”

The trope is that when the facts are on your side, you pound the facts, and when the facts are not on your side, you pound the table. Yesterday, the Republicans were pounding the table, and that’s really all you need to know.

There is one interesting side note: Rep. Doug Collins (R- GA), who was the fast-talking, slow-walking, lead table-pounder in yesterday’s production  of 12 Angry Mentals, is the representative that Comrade Trump wants to be appointed to the Senate to replace retiring Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-GA). Georgia’s Republican Gov. Brian Kemp announced that he is instead appointing multimillionaire Kelly Loeffler to fill it until a special election in Nov. 2020. It explains a lot of Collins’ performance yesterday, as he was playing for an audience of one, who responds:

Anyway, just now as I am writing this, Speaker Nancy Pelosi has announced that she will ask the chairmen heading the House committees handling the impeachment inquiry to proceed with articles of impeachment against the Russian Usurper, who of course has tweeted:

So from here on out, our Kabuki theater knows the roles each will be playing. The only real question that remains is how amply be-chinned #MoscowMitch will subvert the Constitution. And we know he will.

  1. Their own pet legal witness said the calls were “far from perfect” and this is the guy who thinks bribery and soliciting foreign interference in our elections is  ¯_(ツ)_/¯ but a blow job is gonna blow up our democracy like a Michael Bay movie.

    Donnie Five Chins is right about one thing: The Goopers are united. Too bad they’re united against us.

    Ah, are you fine folks forgetting that come Senate Trial time, Chief Justice John Roberts will preside over the proceedings? Which means that poor widdle Mitch will be relegated to the ranks of “normal” law-breakers, er -makers. Of course, he’ll still wield considerable influence, but it will hardly be necessary, as the rank & file Rethugs will back their Prez to the end of the world, and if they make that happen concurrently, it’s a bonus.

    Forget the Avocado Toast, Scorched Earth will be the specialité de la maison if all their hopes, wishes and dreams come true.

  5. Yeah Chief Justice Balls-n-Strikes his own self. Now that he has a solid Fascist Federalist Society majority on the Court, I suspect he’ll put his thumb, hand, arm, elbow and both feet on the scales of “justice”.
