Too many spineless Trump sycophants.

Still, we could use more politicians like Tammy.

I don't understand the mental gymnastics trump supporters are doing to avoid joining Democrats for wanting this investigating.

Good.

But but her emails....BENGHAZI...

Actually, I don't even think it's funny. I'm having a hard time imagining how the GOP can ignore this. Doesn't mean they won't, but I'm having a hard time imagining them accomplishing it.

Awesome Tammy.  Go for it.

The GOP line is to call Democrats obsessed with Russia when Trump has 100% proven over and over it's all a hoax.

This is Trump's Benghazi.  Which will be lucky for him because he couldn't find Benghazi on a map if there were two Trump  branded golf courses near it.

They just have to repeat "Fake News"  and "Dems will do anything to win an election" until November.   Neither admitting or denying anything.  Then it will be "What did Biden know about this when he was VP?   Nothing?  Well, Sleepy Joe missed a briefing.  What do you think about that?"

You just don't understand the nature of a good hoax.  Let me man-splain for you:  if it doesn't look good for the Fat Twit, it's a hoax.  If it looks good for the Fat Twit its in the realm of unicorns and mystical imaginary beings.

Also:  if you study up WWII you would know that Benghazi was one of the important downfalls for the republican God known as Hitler.  They still haven't recovered.

They have a clone stashed away ready when the time is right.

Happy to edumacate you as the air in Dallas is known to be compromised by Jimmy's farts.

They could always leave him in an Afghan desert for a while to slim down before the hanging.

Oh, man... we've progressed to the "we know when he knew it" stage.  A congressman who's been briefed just confirmed the date of the specific meeting to the public.

I'm... I'm actually having some hope that Trump might truly be farked now.

One of Saddam Hussein's people, can't remember which one, ended up getting decapitated because of his weight when they hanged him.

It's gonna boil down to what Trump knew and when, and Trump's defense will be "I never know what's happening, I don't pay attention during briefings"

Well, we had one of our local trolls claim yesterday this was an example of desperation by the Democrats for using the military for political games.

But the short answer- they don't have to.  Trump is running a Gish Gallop of outrage- this won't stay on the front page for more than a day or two before being replaced by something even worse.

They are republicans first, being Americans comes a distant second.  It is a cult.  They have been brainwashed by decades of Fox News, talk radio and conservative websites.  They have to reject the real world to believe in conservativatism.  When you are mentally, emotionally and socially invested in an idea, you can't give it up without quite literally destroying the person who you have become.  It's one of the hardest things for someone to do.

Plato tried to warn us about weaponized sophistry. The GOP and their lie-wizards have warped the fabric of reality so badly that their followers will literally run face-first into a deadly global pandemic. What can we do to fix mass psychological damage of that magnitude?

Elected Republicans either believe their own lies or they risk losing everything if they try to dispel those lies (or both). They are incapable of governing, because that would mean piercing some of their own lies for the sake of compromise and cooperation. And all that is before considering the insane spite-demon at the head of the party now.

It's been said before, but the modern Republican Party is the greatest threat the United States has ever faced.

It all comes down to rope length. There's a butter zone for any given weight. Rope too short? The neck doesn't snap, and the honoree strangles. Rope too long? The head pops right off. Any professional executioner would know how to thread that needle. The more you know dot jpg...

The true icing on the cake would be if action was recommended against Russia and Trump gave an order to stand down.

/probably what happened
//the order is on the server with the Ukraine call

Bah, my hope was apparently premature, she's requesting a briefing.  Not sure whether the Actual Literal Traitors in the GOP will be able to block it or not yet.

One was a fake scandal of corruption and incompetence while this is looking to be a real scandal for a corrupt, incompetent administration. There's a certain cosmic balance there.

I saw a production of Sweeny Todd that put the victims on a meathook and zip-lined them off-stage. One of the victims was way too heavy for the line, so they just walked him off to his (assumed) meat-pie demise.

She was born in Bangkok - and not on a military base. IS she definitely qualified to be President as a "natural born citizen" (or whatever the term is???? 

I know the right would say Rafael Cruz is qualified even though he was born in Canada cuz his mom is American, while Obama wasn't qualified for reasons - even though HIS mom is American... but we better know that she can take over if something happens (plus we always want to set the VP up to follow after 8 years)

Trump weighs 75-100 pounds more than that

Isn't she the one who came up with the nickname "Cadet Bonespurs"?

Yep, they need to know who knew what when, what the reliability assessment of the reports were, and why nothing was done.

If the reports were so unreliable, why did the NSC draw up options for retaliation?

Why did they brief British Intelligence?

But they didn't tell the President. Sure.

Crazy how anger at youth protesting over war crimes in Vietnam (spitting on returning soldiers) has led to a political party that is perfectly okay with a foreign enemy offering and paying bounties on our soldiers.
