Andrew Weissman looks like he's about to shit a Volkswagen:
He makes the absolutely correct argument that even if they rule against him, they have de facto ruled for him by giving him the delay.
 
@Jolenealaska Yup. It's absurd.
 
@Wipqozn assuming he's not lying
 
@Memor-X He is, which was my point. He's claiming contradictory things.
 
like the case was about him lying about how much he has and i wouldn't trust him on his word even if he's under oath
 
This day has just been a roller coaster. Boebert's son arrested, Trump trying to claim being too broke to post a bond for his appeal, McConnell's resignation, now this?!? I can't take much more of this.
Glenn Kirschner: "So the way I would summarize it is this: This means that the Supreme Court has just sold American democracy down the river"
But wait, there's more:
The breaking news machine needs to stop! At least let me catch my breath!
Oh, the irony:
MAGA!!

> “I am here today to provide the committees with the one uncontestable fact that should end the false premise of this inquiry: I did not involve my father in my business. Not while I was a practicing lawyer, not in my investments or transactions domestic or international, not as a board member, and not as an artist. Never,” Biden said during his opening statement.

> “He may be a little bit frustrated by some of the double standards relating to Jared Kushner and money that’s just been openly pocketed by Donald Trump in office,”
i mean yeh i would be too seeing it play out from the outside
like the GOP don't actually care about holding someone accountable of any wrong doing. this is just a tit-for-tat because Trump got impeached twice but because they can't find anything on Biden to impeach him they go after everyone around him
> Still, Democrats said there appeared to be agreement among at least some Republicans when Hunter Biden brought up Kushner’s Saudi deal.

“There’s no cameras in there, [so] Donald Trump ain’t watching, right?” said Rep. Jared Moskowitz (D-Fla.). “For the first time Republicans said they do have a problem with that. But they should do something about it.”
doesn't help that the ones who are reasonable are also shit scared of Trump so have to wait until there's no camera in order to speak the truth

Judges in Trump-related cases face unprecedented wave of threats reuters.com/investigates/special-report/…
> Judges and prosecutors are facing repeated threats of violence as they handle cases related to Trump, interviews and documents reveal. The wave of intimidation follows the ex-president’s attacks on judges as corrupt and biased – and some worry it threatens America’s long tradition of judicial independence.
> Since Trump launched his first presidential campaign in June 2015, the average number of threats and hostile communications directed at judges, federal prosecutors, judicial staff and court buildings has more than triple Since Trump launched his first presidential campaign in June 2015, the average number of threats and hostile communications directed at judges, federal prosecutors, judicial staff and court buildings has more than triple
More than Tripled.
> The annual average rose from 1,180 incidents in the decade prior to Trump’s campaign to 3,810 in the seven years after he declared his candidacy and began his practice of criticizing judges. In all, the Marshals documented nearly 27,000 threatening and harassing communications targeting federal courts from the fall of 2015 through the fall of 2022, a volume they consider unprecedented in their 234-year history.
> For judges, threats have always been part of the job. But traditionally they have come from aggrieved parties – a criminal angered by a long sentence, a spouse by a divorce ruling, a businessman by a bankruptcy decision. Today, a single politically charged case can generate hundreds of threats from people with no direct interest in the matter.

A truly unreal swing from the support Obama had as a JD from Harvard.

Apparently John Cornyn and Rand Paul are competing to replace Mitch McConnell as GOP leader in the senate
 
5:50 PM
Currently, the three top contenders are John Cornyn, John Barrasso, and John Thune. thehill.com/homenews/senate/… . They're all very Trumpy
Of the four, I'd hold my nose and hope for Rand Paul.
 
6:22 PM
@Jolenealaska I'm not sure about Cornyn being very Trumpy. His name was trending on Twitter and pretty much all messages were MAGA Republicans saying he's a RINO
Though admittedly he did already voice his support for Trump
 
I'll look more into it. My first reaction that he is Trumpy was pretty much just based on this from The Hill article: “It’s important. President Trump’s going to be our Republican nominee. We know this,” Mullin said, noting that the “Three Johns” have all thrown their weight behind the former president.

@Jolenealaska So I looked into it, and he tends to vote along the more classic party lines, but he's willing to compromise with Dems if that's what it takes. I wouldn't really put much stock in that The Hill comment with regards to how he really feels given that Trump pretty much is guaranteed to be the nominee unless SCOTUS miraculously decides to keep him off the ballot
