There will be even more of that -- much more -- coming up in, oh, about 70 days.

He'll still claim they're doing nothing because they haven't overthrown Trump and the GOP in a coup yet.


Since they are traitors and taken power with the help of a foreign enemy country, that would be justified. Overthrow Trump and the GOP, put them under arrest for treason, give the power of the president down the chain of command, which would be Pelosi.

Set up new elections within 30 days.

Its not political persecution, its fighting back the farking russians. Doing nothing, doing years long investigations while their puppets destroy the country aint helping America, its helping Putin.

Democrats dont seem to understand that Putin is using democracy against western civilisation, we KNOW THIS for a fact... and we still do nothing, we're playing by his rules... of course we're losing.

It's almost like Rapethuglicans can't win elections without 1) Gerrymandering, 2) voter suppression, 3) Diebold/hanging chads 4) OH, or FL, 5) an anachronistic system designed to placate slave holder feelings, 6) Russian interference.

Yes, because saving democracy via coup is always a good option 🙄

It only worked in Turkey because the strongmen were easily intimidated by the military. And they still had a military junta running things for several years until elections were allowed again. History shows that more often than not, the military doesn't relinquish power in these situations

We don't have that either with Trump or Erdogan (which is why the last attempt failed)

/If you want to preserve democracy in the United States, a coup will not be an option.
//Popular overthrow maybe

At the very least, we (the American People) deserve an Inglourious Basterds 2: Trumpalumpaloo in which the Trump regime receives its just desserts.

Then, if there happens to be a rash of T carvings on people's foreheads, we can simply say it was viral marketing.

They're doing less than anything, even notifying the public 2 years after the fact.

Hopefully it stays off FoxNews. Not like Trump listens to his daily briefings.

How long until 45 uses this to claim that the blue wave of 2018 was 'rigged! illegitimate!!' and solely the result of China hacking the midterms?

Yes, it specifically mentions Russia, not China, but it's not like he'd ever let facts get in his way.

attempted.


Look, if I were to engineer a result to sow maximum chaos, it'd be the GOP barely holding on to the senate while the house was held by the Democrats.


And funnily enough, congressional districts split their votes between the Democrat and the Republican. . .which never farking happens.

NSA should come up with some sort of rootkit that whenever someone tries to hack election software or servers that it blasts them back and turns all of their computers and servers into blocky room decorations.
